VANCOUVER -- Steve Doege will finally get a chance to travel in style Friday. Monster Beats by Dre UK . The 22-year-old defensive lineman will be among some 60 B.C. Lions players taking a charter flight to Calgary for a CFL pre-season game the same evening against the Stampeders. A good performance will help him earn more flights instead of tiresome drives on the highway between Vancouver and his hometown of Kelowna, B.C. Doege, a 2012 territorial protection, split last season between the B.C. practice roster and his Okanagan Sun junior club. As a result, he drove for many hours getting to practices and games. This year, although he has a year of junior eligibility remaining, he hopes to take a road less travelled to the official start of his pro career. "It wasnt fun driving 12 hours a week," said Doege, who usually plays defensive end. After spending a season with the Lions while also earning Canadian Junior Football League all-star honours with the Sun, he is starting to feel more comfortable with the CFL club. "If I keep doing what Im doing, Im sure good things will happen," said Doege. Coach Mike Benevides and defensive line boss coach Carl Hairston tend to agree. They say he has a good chance to earn a spot on the main roster. According to Benevides, Doege has been one of the best players in camp, even after adding 20 pounds of muscle to 250. Of course, Doege must still prove himself in the pre-season, but the coaches will give him plenty of opportunities to shine. He is slated to play on regular downs and see extensive special-teams duty on punt returns and kickoff returns and, possibly, kickoffs against the Stamps. "Hes had a great camp," said Benevides. "He deserves (the playing time.) "Hes a hard-working guy. Those guys that work hard are the guys that I want on my football team." When Doege wasnt practising with the Lions or playing with the Sun, he spent four years working hard at a concrete-supply store. "It was a good job," said Doege, who also studied auto mechanics. "I couldnt complain. It got me the money I needed to play for my (football) training." Although Doege is young in comparison to some other Lions hopefuls, he started in football late. He did not take up the sport until he was 15, starting as a linebacker and running back in high school and the Sun. When the junior clubs defensive line suffered injuries, he moved there and never moved back. "Its a lot easier playing defensive end than the other two," he said. "Theres a lot more to know at the other positions." Meanwhile, Benevides will use the game to gain knowledge on his team. While winning is always the goal, the priority is to determine who should stay and who should go. The coach said it will a critical contest for quarterbacks Thomas DeMarco and Joey Elliott, a former Winnipeg Blue Bomber, who are trying to secure the backup job behind Travis Lulay. DeMarco is listed as No. 2 for now while Elliott is No. 3. Benevides said the pre-season is also important for quarterback Chris Hart, who joined the team in the spring and is listed fourth on the depth chart. "Theres a tremendous amount on the line for them," said Benevides. "Its no different than with (former backups) Mike Reilly and Travis Lulay in previous years." Note: The Lions released wide receivers William Cole and Travon Patterson and linebacker Kevin Reed on Thursday. By Dre For Sale . Catch all of the action on TSN2 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt.

The Premier League club said the early indications were that the operation to repair a stress fracture in Wilsheres right ankle was a success.MONTREAL -- Even after the shock of a coaching change, things remained the same for the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens held a 15-minute players-only meeting in their dressing room after Randy Cunneyworths head coaching debut was spoiled by the same kind of third period letdown that ushered his predecessor Jacques Martin out the door. David Clarkson tied the game late in the second period and Patrick Elias and Dainius Zubrus scored in the third as the New Jersey Devils downed the Canadiens 5-3 on Saturday night. "Its a frustrated group of players," said Cunneyworth, who had been promoted that morning when Martin was fired after too many similar losses at home, where Montreal is now 5-7-6 for the season. "They know its not enough. "They were up against a good team but I thought they were up for the task. I know it was a letdown in the end." Boos filled the Bell Centre as the game wound down on Cunneyworths first game as an NHL head coach. Elias passed John McLean as the Devils all-time goal-scoring leader with his 347th and 348th, while Peter Sykora also scored for New Jersey (18-13-1). Montreal (13-13-7) started the day in 11th place and fell further out of playoff position. Now they are relived to be heading out on a six-game road trip. "We wanted to start fresh and its the same story over again," said centre Lars Eller. "But there are still a lot of games left and we have to pull ourselves together and figure out a way to win." Cunneyworth made small adjustments from Martins routine, including placing more trust in a young centre like Eller and his linemates Louis Leblanc and Mathieu Darche. The team looked a little more adventurous on attack, while ice tme between the top three lines was more evenly distributed. Eller and defencemen P.K. Subban and Chris Campoli scored for the Canadiens. Campoli was also the goat on the game-winner, as he was stripped of the puck in the slot and Elias finished a give-and-go with Sykora 1:31 into the third period. Cunneyworth said it was not all Campolis fault. "We have to be better positionally," he said. "I dont think we gave him a good out, a good target. But we tell them to use the glass if they dont see anything." Sykora picked up the puck for Elias record goal. "It just feels nice," said career Devil Elias. "It feels like youre doing sommething right and it keeps me going. By Dre cheap UK. Hopefully I have a lot more in me." Zubrus sealed the win with a power-play goal at 10:18. "Part of the reason for the changes was exactly what we did tonight," said defenceman Josh Gorges. "At some point we have to take ownership upon ourselves and understand its not good enough." He said it may help the team to be on the road over the holiday period. They have a winning record (8-6-1) away from home. "Its a chance to be together as a group and focus on hockey," he said. "And on the road, you dont have to be pretty. You can just win games. Weve done that a lot on the road and hopefully we can gain the confidence we need and apply it to home ice." The Devils were coming off an emotional 6-3 victory over Dallas on Friday night, when legendary defenceman Scott Niedermayers No. 27 jersey was retired. The Canadiens hoped to take advantage by jumping on the Devils early, but New Jersey had the first seven shots and got the opening goal when Zubrus shot went in off Sykora past a screened Carey Price. Montreal took three penalties in the first period, the last one a minor on Erik Cole for a hit to the head of rookie rearguard Adam Larsson, who was reaching forward for a puck behind his net when Coles shoulder contacted his helmet. Larsson was not hurt and stayed in the game, but it will likely be looked at by NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan. Montreal was on a two-man advantage when Subban scored on a point blast 2:21 into the second period. Tomas Kaberle picked up his fifth point in four games as a Canadien with an assist. Elias got it back when he sneaked in from behind the net to pound Ilya Kovalchuks pass into an open side on a power play at 5:05. Campoli got his first as a Canadien on a shot from the slot at 6:33 and Eller scored from the slot at 8:57, but Clarkson tied it at 18:26 after taking a perfect stretch pass from Larsson and beating Price with a wrist shot. Notes: Defenceman Raphael Diaz (sick) and forward Travis Moen (lower body) each sat out a second game for Montreal. . . Henrik Tallinder (back spasms) missed a second game for New Jersey, while Tim Sestito and Alexander Urbom were scratched. . . The NHLs two best penalty killing teams were in action, but New jersey gave up one and Montreal two on the power play. ' ' '
