LOS ANGELES, Calif. Dominic Solanke Liverpool Jersey . - At first glance, Dennis Wideman thought his overtime shot beat Jonathan Quick. By the time he got to the Flames bench, the defenceman decided he was mistaken.Wideman was thrilled to learn his first instinct had been correct and Calgary had just roared past the defending Stanley Cup champions in the standings.Wideman scored 4:08 into overtime, and the Flames rallied past Los Angeles for their fourth straight victory, 2-1 Monday night.Widemans goal wasnt confirmed until video review confirmed his shot had ricocheted off the camera inside the net, putting an appropriately tense ending on a defence-dominated game.I thought it was in, and I waved my arms, Wideman said. Then they waved it off, and I didnt think that anymore.Wideman saw a replay on the scoreboard that appeared to show the puck hitting the crossbar, but the Flames video replay assistant yelled the good news to the bench.Usually the shooter has the best view, Calgary coach Bob Hartley said with a grin. I always look at the one who shoots the puck, but he got to the bench and said, No, it wasnt a goal.In a game with scarce offensive chances for either side, Calgary capitalized on two big late opportunities to remain unbeaten four games into its five-game Pacific Division road trip. Sean Monahan tied it with 6:05 left in regulation for the Flames, who have asserted themselves in the playoff race ever since their newest goalie stepped in.Joni Ortio stopped 33 shots in his fourth straight win as Calgary moved past Los Angeles into the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Calgary got another strong effort from the Finnish rookie who has yielded just five goals in four games since stepping in for Karri Ramo.Theyve been on a tough stretch here, so we knew they were going to come out hard, Ortio said of the Kings. They got that one in the third, a little bit of a lucky goal ... but I felt good throughout the (game). I dont think they had that many quality chances. We kept them on the outside.Matt Greene scored midway through the third period and Quick made 22 saves for the Kings, who wrapped up their seven-game homestand with a dismal 1-2-4 record and dropped out of the playoff picture.The fact of the matter is that we need points, especially against teams like that, captain Dustin Brown said. Its a four-point game. It doesnt matter how good were playing or how bad were playing. We need to find a way to win games.Los Angeles also dropped to an NHL-worst 2-12 in overtime and shootout games, losing the last eight straight. The Kings have won just once since New Years Day.Were just not doing a really good job in overtime, when things really count, Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr said. Whether its 4-on-4, giving up chances or having too many turnovers and helping the other team go the other way, were just not doing a good job in the overtime.After 2 1/2 scoreless periods dominated by goaltending and missed opportunities, Greene scored on a long, screened shot after Trevor Lewis and Brown loosed the puck from the boards. The goal was the third of the year for Greene, a defence-first blueliner who has never scored more than four goals in an NHL season.But the Flames evened it when Alec Martinez turned over the puck at the blue line and gave up a breakaway to Monahan, who beat Quick for his 14th goal.Los Angeles dominated possession and shots during the first 40 penalty-plagued minutes, but failed to convert on its three power plays in the second period. Calgary did nothing with its own advantages, including a 4-minute power play spanning the first intermission, and played more than 13 consecutive minutes in the second period without recording a shot on Quick.NOTES: Kings C Nick Shore played his second NHL game, but his older brother, Drew, was a scratch for the Flames. ... Regehr returned from a 12-game absence since Dec. 18 with a hand injury. Los Angeles put backup G Martin Jones on injured reserve with an undisclosed problem. ... Calgary F Curtis Glencross went on injured reserve. ... Kings F Tyler Toffoli missed his fifth straight game with mononucleosis. ... The Flames finish their trip Wednesday at NHL-leading Anaheim. Roberto Firmino Liverpool Jersey . The third baseman whipped the ball across the diamond to second baseman Aaron Hill. He quickly tossed it to shortstop Chris Owings, who flipped over his shoulder to left fielder Cody Ross. Dejan Lovren Liverpool Jersey . But Paul Osbaldiston, Hamiltons assistant special teams and kicking coach, said the team still relished the championship game workout.CLEVELAND -- Four years after their messy breakup, the Cavaliers and LeBron James are at least talking about a reunion. Cavs officials met with James agent, Rich Paul, this week about the free-agent superstars possible return. The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks. It was not immediately clear if owner Dan Gilbert was at the meeting. James recently opted out of the final two years of his contract in Miami. The two-time NBA champion has gone to four straight finals with the Heat. However, after the team was throttled by San Antonio in this years finals, James said he would weigh his options this summer. One of them could be re-signing with the Cavs, the team he spent seven seasons with before leaving in 2010 to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Florida. Wade and Bosh also opted out of their deals with Heat, raising speculation the "Big Three" could be headed in different directions. James decision to leave Cleveland -- Thursday was the four-year anniversary of the teams last pitch to him -- prompted Gilbert to condemn him in a scathing letter to Cavs fans. The owner also told The AP he felt James had quit during games in the playoffs. ESPN has reported that Paul also met with representatives for the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. A photo of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban in Cleveland circulated on Twitter, though he said he was there for a commitment for his TV show, "Shark Tank." While James has been out of the country with his wife, Savannah, and their two sons, Paul has been working on the four-time MVPs future. Unlike four years ago, when teams flocked to Cleveland to make presentations to woo James, the courtship of him this time has been low key and rather business-like. The Cavs have waited patiently for their chance to try and convince the Akron, Ohio, native to come home. In the past few weeks, the Cavs have hired new coach David Blatt, selected Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick and gotten All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to agree to a five-year, $90 million contract extension. Now, theyre working on bringing back James, who has never ruled out the possibility of a return. Virgil van Dijk Jersey. Two years ago, James was asked if he could ever see himself playing for the Cavs again. "I dont know. I think it would be great," he said. "It would be fun to play in front of these fans again. I had a lot fun times in my seven years here. You cant predict the future and hopefully I continue to stay healthy. Im here as a Miami Heat player, and Im happy where I am now, but I dont rule that out in no sense. "And if I decide to come back, hopefully the fans will accept me." Cleveland fans, most of them anyway, have gotten over James infamous "Decision," when he announced he was leaving on a nationally televised special. He was booed mercilessly in his first games back with the Heat, but in recent years he has been received more favourably. Maybe thats because the Cavs havent been to the playoffs since he left and Clevelanders know he might be the only chance they have to see a championship in their lifetimes. Cleveland hasnt won a title in any of the major sports since 1964. If he were to come back, James could repair the damage he did to his image when he left. But that remains a big if. In having Paul meet with other teams, James could simply be putting on pressure for the Heat to upgrade their roster. Miami has been pursuing free agents and Yahoo Sports reported team president Pat Riley and coach Erik Spoelstra met in Los Angeles with Lakers free agent Pau Gasol. The Heat could have trouble surrounding James with enough talent if the reports he will only accept a maximum contract are accurate. James is scheduled to be in Las Vegas next week to host a basketball camp, and then is expected to attend the World Cup in Brazil. In order for James to play again in Cleveland, he and Gilbert would have to have some sort of reconciliation. Gilberts letter -- famously typed in comic sans font -- was a blistering attack on James, who had carried the Cavs to the NBA Finals in 2007 but failed to deliver on his promise of a championship. Gilbert had guaranteed the Cavs would win a title before James, but later regretted the prediction. "Looking back now, that probably was not the most brilliant thing Ive ever done in my life," Gilbert said. He and James may get a second chance together.
