The last time the Toronto Maple Leafs lost at Air Canada Centre, a fan tossed a jersey on the ice in disgust. Theyve won all four games there since with a visit from the struggling New Jersey Devils up next. The Maple Leafs seek a fifth straight home win Tuesday night as they face the Devils for the first time this season. Watch the game live in Leafs region on TSN4 at 7pm et. The game can also be heard live on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto. Toronto (13-8-3) appeared lost during a recent three-game losing streak, falling 6-2 at Buffalo on Nov. 15 before a 9-2 thrashing at the hands of Nashville three days later. The teams performance against the Predators was so poor that a fan expressed dissatisfaction by throwing a jersey on the ice. That fan probably feels a whole lot better now, with the Maple Leafs going 4-0-1 and outscoring opponents 20-8 during four straight home wins. We still got plenty to work on, left wing Joffrey Lupul said. Obviously things are headed in the right direction, but we know what can happen if you get complacent. Lupul hasnt had that problem late, scoring three goals and assisting on another in two games. He tallied twice in Tuesdays 5-3 win over Dallas, but coach Randy Carlyle wasnt happy with Torontos sloppy play. Were going to take the two points, but we cant be happy with the sloppiness with which we played, Carlyle said. We cannot continue to play that style of game and think were going to have success. Also producing lately is center Tyler Bozak, who has five goals and three assists during a five-game point streak. He has four goals and one assist in his past seven games with New Jersey, scoring once in a 3-2 road defeat on March 23 that ended Torontos six-game winning streak in the series. The Leafs are 8-0-4 in their last 12 home matchups with the Devils (9-12-4), taking four in a row after winning 3-2 in a shootout on Jan. 12. On the injury front, forward Leo Komarov skated to day but will not play due to concussion-like symptoms while Daniel Winnik, who missed practice on Wednesday, is expected to play. New Jersey is trying to snap a season-high five-game slide (0-3-2) after falling 1-0 at Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The Devils may have suffered an even greater blow after Jaromir Jagr was hit by the Penguins Robert Bortuzzo late in the second period, forcing him to leave with an undisclosed injury. Jagr will not play tonight due to the flu and Patrik Elias is out with a groin injury. Bortuzzo was suspended for two games by the league for the hit, which was deemed late and violent for hitting Jagr in the head. Totally unnecessary, coach Peter DeBoer said. You know, if one of our guys had done that to (Sidney) Crosby thered be World War Four. Jagr leads the Devils with 15 points and replacing his production will be difficult for a team that ranks among the leagues worst with 2.28 goals per game. New Jersey has scored nine goals in its last five games, tallying four twice during that stretch while being shut out on two other occasions. The lack of offense only increases the pressure on Cory Schneider, who has lost his last four starts despite a 2.25 goals-against average. Hes lost his last two games at Toronto in shootouts, compiling a 1.39 GAA.

According to Tony Barrett of The Times, the Liverpool captain is set to announce that he will leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season.MINNEAPOLIS -- As his 23rd season as an NBA coach entered the home stretch, Rick Adelman looked tired. Tired of trying to wring a few more wins out of a talented, defensively deficient roster. Tired of getting on an airplane at midnight after a game and landing somewhere across the country at 3 a.m. Tired, most of all, of putting his wife Mary Kay and her lingering health issues second to a job that, when done right, is all-consuming. So when he finally decided to step away, announcing his retirement from the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, he did so with mixed feelings about the pressure-cooker life he is leaving behind and the one that awaits him. "It becomes your life, your familys life, an everyday routine," Adelman said of the NBA. "Its a real grind. You get some time off in the summer but its pretty much on your mind all the time, so theres some sadness but theres also a relief. Im ready and my wifes ready to move on to another phase. Were looking forward to that." Adelman and the Timberwolves had a mutual option in place in the four-year contract he signed in 2011. His announcement did not come as a surprise after the Wolves finished a disappointing 40-42, but it nevertheless marked an unceremonious end to a career that includes 1,042 victories, putting him eighth on the NBAs career list. He coached Western Conference powers in Portland and Sacramento and also had stops in Golden State and Houston. Adelman said the time is right for him to step aside and spend more time with Mary Kay, who has been treated for seizures over the last two years. He also thinks the Wolves need a fresh voice to help them try to persuade star power forward Kevin Love to remain in Minnesota. "If anything, I felt if I coached another year and then his future comes up and my future is gone, that makes it even harder," Adelman said. "I think its best for the organization to have somebody else coaching the team, give them a year to see what they can do and hear that voice. I think thats a much more positive situation for the organization. I feel strongly about that." After missing the playoffs for the third straight season, the 67-year-old Adelman decided it was time to walk away from one of the most quietly influential coaching careers in NBA history. The introverted coach worked below the radar for most of his career, but his impact on the league is unquestioned. Adelman won at least 50 games in a season 11 times in his career, led the Portland Trail Blazers to two NBA Finals appearances and then developed a post-passing offence in Sacramento that continues to influence the league. He had more modest success with Houston and Minnesota, but walks away with his fingerpriints all over the league.dddddddddddd While with the Kings, Adelman worked with assistant and former Princeton coach Pete Carril to fine-tune his famed "corner" offence, a precision system that maximized the talents of big men Chris Webber, Vlade Divac and Brad Miller, all of whom were gifted passers from the elbow of the lane. "A lot of people have run the elbow action, but no ones run it like him," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "He started doing it in Portland and then in Sac, everywhere hes gone hes won for the most part. Hes one of the better coaches that weve ever had in the league and a lot of people dont realize that. And I think thats too bad. But hes been good for the game. Hes brought a lot to the game." "Ive stolen from him, very honestly," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Adelmans final season in Minnesota was a frustrating one, with Nikola Pekovic missing 28 games, Chase Budinger never fully healthy after off-season knee surgery and a team that beat the Thunder, Heat, Spurs, Grizzlies, Rockets and Pacers but also lost to the Kings, Magic and Jazz. Now the team heads into a precarious summer, with President Flip Saunders needing to find the right coach and make the right personnel moves to keep Love, who can opt out of his contract after next season. Michigan States Tom Izzo, a friend of Saunders for years, ESPN analyst George Karl and former Memphis coach Lionel Hollins are among the candidates likely to be considered to take over a team that has the longest-running playoff drought in the league at 10 years. Saunders himself could also take over, though owner Glen Taylor has said he prefers to keep Saunders in the front office. Saunders hinted Monday that a coach who has experience running the show is the preference. "Be demanding, hold players accountable, just like any good coach, everyone has the same formula what you are looking for," Saunders said. "We are more geared toward bringing someone who has a track record, whos had some success." Adelman said he had "a sour taste" with how this season finished, especially with a lacklustre effort in a season-ending home loss to the Jazz. Hes not sure what hes going to do with all his free time. Probably play a lot of golf, definitely spend Christmas at home with his family and just maybe -- "You never say never" -- listen to another coaching offer down the road. Adelman said a return is very unlikely, and it sounded believable when he was asked what it was going to feel like to wake up on Tuesday morning without the job to worry about. He smiled and his face brightened. "Its going to be good," he said. ' ' '
