The Toronto Maple Leafs added two more players to Legends Row in front of the Air Canada Centre on Saturday. Troy Apke Redskins Jersey . Former captain Darryl Sittler and goaltender Johnny Bower joined Ted Teeder Kennedy as the first three members of the growing statue. Sittler ranks second in franchise history in goals (389) and points (916) and holds the NHL record for points in a game (10) in a game against the Boston Bruins in 1976. Bower, who won the Vezina Trophy twice, ranks second in games played (475), wins (219) and third in shutouts (32). He was a member of four Stanley Cup teams, including the last title in 1967. Both players are members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. On Friday night, the Maple Leafs presented Stanley Cup rings to players who won multiple titles in the 1960s. At the time, Maple Leafs management did not give players a new ring for each title. Instead, they replaced the diamond with a larger one after additional championships. DaRon Payne Jersey . -- The Phoenix Coyotes have won three in a row for the first time in 4 1/2 months, and theyve done it just in time for the stretch run to the playoffs. Alex Smith Redskins Jersey . Ryu (8-3) allowed a run and three hits in six innings and struck out six in his 13th start. In his first 13 starts last season -- his first in the major leagues -- the left-hander was 8-5 with a 2.85 ERA. This was the ninth time this year that Ryu has allowed fewer than three earned runs, and he is 7-0 in those games.LONDON -- Lukas Podolski scored twice as Arsenal came from a goal down to beat West Ham 3-1 in the Premier League on Tuesday and provisionally reclaim the last Champions League spot. Arsenal trailed to Matthew Jarvis 40th-minute opener, but Podolski equalized before the break and Arsenal dominated the second half. Olivier Giroud made amends for an earlier miss by showing off a delicate touch in the area to put Arsenal ahead in the 55th and Podolski finished off the win with another clinical strike in the 78th. Arsenal leapfrogged Everton into fourth place, although the Merseyside club is only one point behind with a game in hand. "It was a hard-fought win, but a very, very important one," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. "The key was (to score) just before halftime. In the second half we controlled well the game." Coming off their penalty-shootout win against Wigan in the FA Cup semifinals on Saturday, Arsenal looked sluggish at the start. West Ham was the better team for the first 30 minutes, but when the opening goal came it was against the run of play following a period of sustained Arsenal pressure. Kim Kallstrom, making his first start for Arsenal since joining on loan in January, lost track of Antonio Nocerino down the right flank as the West Ham player broke into the area. Nocerinos shot was stopped by Wojciech Szczesny, but Jarvis was there to head in the rebound in a goalmouth scramble. Jarvis then could have earned a penalty shortly afterward when Bacary Sagna clearly clipped his legs in the area, but he stayed on his feet and the referee waved play on. "Im grateful for thhat," Wenger said about Jarvis staying on his feet. Paul Richardson Redskins Jersey. "I dont think it was a penalty, but he touched him. Can you be too honest? Ill leave you that judgement." West Ham manager Sam Allardyce certainly thought so. "The facts are that when you stay on your feet the referees dont give penalties," Allardyce said. "When theres contact, you have to go down and make the referees mind up for him. Theres no reward for honesty." Arsenal responded shortly thereafter as Santi Cazorla found Podolski in the area and the Germany forward took one touch to create space before slotting a clinical finish inside the far post. Before that, Giroud had wasted Arsenals two best chances as the France striker couldnt make contact with Podolskis cross in the 14th, and then wasted a one-on-one opportunity in the 30th. Cazorla picked out Giroud that time as well, but the Frenchman went for finesse rather than power, trying to chip the ball with the outside of his boot past Adrian, but the goalkeeper palmed it away. Giroud made no mistake the next time, however, after Thomas Vermaelen picked him out with a long ball into the area. Giroud downed it with a perfect first touch and then slotted a shot between Adrians legs to put the hosts up for good. Arsenal kept pressing and the third goal came after Giroud broke down the left and sent a high pass in toward substitute Aaron Ramsey, who picked out Podolski with a header and the German blasted a high shot into the net. "Hes a fantastic finisher," Wenger said of Podolski. "The one you want to have a chance is him."
