Shean Donovan has become the Calgary Flames' penalty-shot specialist. Donovan scored on a penalty shot with 2:08 remaining, his second successful attempt in two months, giving the Flames a 2-1 victory over Phoenix on Tuesday night at Glendale, Ariz. Donovan was awarded the penalty shot because he was pulled down from behind by Phoenix defenseman Ossi Vaananen, who had slipped and lost the puck to the Calgary forward.

Claude Lapointe got his penalty shot past goalie Mike Vernon, it just wasn't good enough to get the New York Islanders a tie. Lapointe shot wide on a penalty shot with 21 seconds left Wednesday night and the Florida Panthers held on to a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders at Sunrise, Fla. "The frustrating part is that I had him beat. I put a pretty good move on him," Lapointe said. The shot was awarded after Lapointe was pulled down by Jaroslav Spacek on a breakaway.

Both the penalty shot and the ensuing clean look that Anze Kopitar had ended badly in the Stadium Series, as has much in the Los Angeles Kings' five-game losing streak that trails them to Monday's game in San Jose. “When you have good opportunities and don't score, you've just got to finish those opportunities,” Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said Saturday night after his team's 3-0 loss to the Ducks, in which Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller stopped all 36 shots at him. That's where the Kings (29-18-6)

On the 1,999th shot on goal of his NHL career, Alex Ovechkin was brought down from behind by Braydon Coburn. That led to attempt No. 2,000, when the NHL's two-time reigning MVP did something he's never done before: He scored on a penalty shot. Ovechkin ended an 0-for-5 career slump in penalty shots by beating Ray Emery with a backhand move with 4:12 to play as the Washington Capitals piled on the goals again Sunday, retaking first place in the Eastern Conference with a 5-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The unnatural curve on goaltender Dan Ellis' mask, with the bar protecting his nose bent back ? "It was up against my nose" ? was as symbolic as it can get. Battered, not beaten. The Ducks found all kinds of ways to twist and bend Thursday night, while giving the Detroit Red Wings far more opportunities than an elite team should be allowed. But the final chance was on Bobby Ryan's stick and his goal on a penalty shot in overtime gave the Ducks a 2-1 victory at Honda Center.

Tony Amonte's body language was all wrong on a penalty shot with 32 seconds left in the second period of the Ducks' 4-3 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. He drifted left, moved back to his right a bit, then went slowly at Duck goalie Guy Hebert. Amonte didn't do much with his chance , sending a weak shot into Hebert's right pad--one of a career-high 47 saves on 50 shots. "I knew the penalty shot was going to be a make or break play," said Hebert, who stopped 45 of 48 shots Dec.

Pronger sliced through two Oiler defenders after accepting a pass from the right wing from Scott Young, but was pulled down from behind by defenseman Boris Mironov with about five seconds left in the third period.

Lonzo and Hausmann each finished with two goals.

They have been called the most exciting plays in hockey and among the most exciting in all of sports. Certainly, they are among the most challenging--the one-on-one confrontations between a skater with the puck and the goaltender, with no other players on the ice. Penalty shots are also rare in the National Hockey League, which perhaps adds to their mystique.

Pablo Larrazabal understood his accomplishment in edging Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Sunday. “I was sitting at the presentation ceremony, I said to myself: 'Pablo? What are you doing here?' I've got Rory McIlroy on my left and I am shaking the hand of Phil Mickelson on my right. It's very special for me,” said the 30-year-old Spaniard, who finished at 14-under 274 to earn his third PGA Europe Tour victory. Larrazabal birdied No. 18 to finish the final round with a five-under-par 67 on the National Course in the United Arab Emirates, taking the title by one stroke over his more accomplished competitors.

ST. LOUIS -- On a night when the Kings and St. Louis Blues between them showcased more than a dozen players who were chosen to participate in the Sochi Olympics hockey tournament, a player who was invited to the U.S. Olympic orientation camp but didn't make the final roster was the standout. Forward Trevor Lewis, who's usually energetic but is rarely rewarded on the scoresheet, scored twice early in the third period as the Kings defeated the St. Louis Blues, 4-1, on Thursday at Scottrade Center.

ST. LOUIS - Darryl Sutter offered his first few comments Thursday in a dry monotone, suggesting he didn't care to analyze the Kings' 4-1 victory over the Blues and that he had one foot on the team bus out of Scottrade Center. But when Trevor Lewis' name was mentioned, the Kings' coach dropped his impassive expression and pumped his fist, savoring the success of a hard-working forward whose contributions rarely show up on the scoresheet. Lewis was credited with the Kings' second goal - a shot that deflected off the foot of Blues forward Jaden Schwartz and was initially awarded to Dwight King - and made an excellent play to score the third goal while the team was short-handed, helping the Kings end their five-game road losing streak and fend off the surging Blues.

The line on Tyler Toffoli 's first NHL game read like this: 13 minutes 20 seconds played, 19 shifts, one shot on goal, plus two attempts blocked and four missed. It was a modest debut for the Kings' rookie forward, but it passed muster with the only man that matters, Coach Darryl Sutter . Sutter is well known for practicing tough love when it comes to young players, but he also believes in giving them opportunities - and Toffoli had a good one Saturday in the Kings' 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks, lining up alongside Mike Richards and Jeff Carter on the second line.

Forget the Gordie Howe hat trick of last season. In many ways, what forward Kyle Clifford did against the San Jose Sharks in Saturday's 5-2 win by the Kings was more impressive than his homage to Howe nearly 14 months ago against Ottawa. Then? Goal, assist and fight, a clear Howe hat trick. Now? Two goals, an exhausting scrap against behemoth defenseman Douglas Murray and a superb defensive play against Joe Pavleski at Staples Center. That play to help shut down Pavelski came shortly before Clifford's second goal of the game to make it 4-1 at 13 minutes 45 seconds of the second period.

LONDON — Through the frantic thrashing in the pool and the supercharged racket at the Water Polo Arena, Adam Krikorian thought he saw his goalie grab the ball. He was sure of it. So the U.S. coach kept his eye on play while pivoting toward officials, signaling for a timeout. His goalie, however, did not have the ball. It was loose in the desperate muddle of Australia scraping to sustain gold-medal hopes, down a goal in a women's semifinal game. And there are five reasons for officials to award a penalty shot in water polo, and calling a timeout without possession is one of them.

Ever seen a penalty shot? Ever seen a hockey game end on a penalty shot? Ever seen a Stanley Cup championship series game end with a solitary player from the home team skating toward a solitary enemy goaltender while every other human being in the building, including the rest of the players, stands off to the side watching, their hearts and pulses pounding furiously while time is standing still? You could have. No. You should have.

When Didier Drogba's penalty kick hit the back of the net in Munich's Allianz Arena on Saturday, giving Chelsea a 4-3 win over Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final, David Engelberg leapt to his feet in a bar half a world away and pumped his fist. Engelberg then quickly surveyed the room and noticed he was the only one standing — indeed, he was the only one smiling — and quietly sat back down. Celebrating a Munich loss in a faux German beer hall, it turns out, is bad form.

DALLAS — Betsey Armstrong has an anchor tattooed on her right calf. Why it's there, though, she's no longer sure. "There's not a really specific meaning behind it," she says with a shrug. "People ask me all the time if I'm in the Navy. I'm just kind of a water person. " But Brenda Villa, a teammate on the U.S. women's water polo team, says the body art has come to symbolize the role Armstrong has grown into over the last four years, becoming the best goalkeeper in the world and the anchor of a team that is a heavy medal favorite in this summer's Olympic Games.
