.8-million, three-year contract on Wednesday. The 29-year-old native of Lapeer, Mich., played in a career-high 78 games for the Jets last season, scoring 13 goals and adding eight assists. Peyton Manning Jersey BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona slipped five points behind Spanish leader Real Madrid after an 86th-minute equalizer by substitute Alvaro Vazquez gave Espanyol a 1-1 draw against the defending champions on Sunday. Tim Tebow Jets Jersey . With Lionel Messi relatively anonymous in Barcelonas play, midfielder Cesc Fabregas continued his scoring ways by heading home Daniel Alves cross to put Barcelona ahead after 16 minutes at the Cornella-El Prat stadium. Barcelona looked certain to take three points as it controlled the city derby, but Thievy Fibouma flicked on Raul Rodriguezs cross for Vazquez to guide home the equalizer four minutes from time. Barcelona nearly stole the game at the close as first Gerard Pique hit the crossbar in the 90th and then Rodriguez appeared to handle Pedro Rodriguezs shot on the follow-up. "The team played hard and at the end we got the draw we deserved," Vazquez said. "We arrived alive to the last minutes and we had a that little bit of luck." Espanyol has been Barcelonas toughest opponent over the past five seasons -- taking more league points off its crosstown rival than any other club, and the European champion continued to look vulnerable on the road. Pep Guardiolas side has taken only 13 of 24 points from eight games. Messi, who seems certain to win his third straight Ballon dOr as the worlds best player on Monday, managed his only shot in the 77th. The Argentina forward was booked for handling in the 13th after stealing from Cristian Alvarez to feed Fabregas for a goal that was disallowed. "The other day he played only little, so (his play) was not due to (fatigue)," Guardiola said of Messi before turning his attention to Madrids advantage. "Theres a lot of league left to play, a lot of points. We can recover from this." Guardiola, who is expected to win FIFAs award as best coach on Monday, started the same 11 that beat Madrid last month, with Andres Iniesta returning from a leg muscle injury, but Espanyol held firm early and looked to the counter, with Victor Valdes clearing Joan Verdus header off the line in the sixth minute, with the Barcelona defence scrambling to keep Verdus follow-up out too. Three minutes after the disallowed goal, Fabregas scored his ninth league goal and seventh in six games after connecting with a cross from Alves, who was subjected to racist chants from sections of the home fans during the match. Fabregas continued to create Barcelonas best chances with Alvarez saving just before halftime. Verdu and Romaric NDri both hit shots over for the hosts while Barcelona defenders Eric Abidal and Carles Puyol blocked hard shots from Sergio Garcia and Thievy Bifouma. Bifouma was unlucky to be whistled for a foul as he battled with Puyol inside Barcelonas area as the hosts found some second-half momentum. "We applied a lot of pressure and tried to take the ball away and at the end we had a little bit of luck," Vazquez said. Espanyol continued to press for the equalizer and Bifouma was tripped up inside the area without being awarded a penalty moments before Vazquezs heroics, although the hosts conceded they were fortunate not to concede a late spot-kick. "The ball hit my hand but Im not the referee," Rodriguez said. Elsewhere, Jose Antonio Reyes return to Sevilla was spoiled by Rayo Vallecano as the promoted side won 2-1 to break a four-game losing streak. Miguel "Michu" Perez and Raul Tamudo put Rayo in command before Julien Escude pulled one back for Sevilla. "Taking into account that (Reyes) was playing with new teammates and that he hadnt played much recently, he played well," said Sevilla coach Marcelino Garcia of former Arsenal player Reyes, who returned to his boyhood club from Atletico Madrid on Thursay. Elsewhere, Valencia came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Villarreal in coach Jose Molinas debut for the "Yellow Submarine," Athletic Bilbao drew 0-0 at Getafe and Real Betis beat nine-man Sporting Gijon 2-0 for a third straight win. Villarreal remained winless in nine consecutive games in all competitions, while Valencia stayed in third place, nine points behind league leader Real Madrid, which beat Granada 5-1 on Saturday. Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente returned after missing seven games with a left knee injury and teammate Iker Muniain set the record for the youngest player to have made 100 league appearances at the age of 19 years and 20 days. On Saturday, Racing Santander edged last-place Zaragoza 1-0. Malaga vs. Atletico Madrid, Levante vs. Mallorca and Real Sociedad vs. Osasuna all ended in scoreless draws. Von Miller Jersey . Matt Fraser, with two, Kevin King and Max Reinhart scored for the fourth-seeded Ice while Saskatoons lone goal came from defenceman Stefan Elliott. Game 2 is Saturday night at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon. Sebastian Janikowski Jersey . But some questions remain to be answered: Which teams will squeak in and draw a top-flight team like the Canucks, Blues or Rangers? Can the Panthers and Kings hold onto tenuous division leads? Who will get home ice when the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins meet in the first round? Wait… what? The Penguins (with 102 points, good for fourth-most in the NHL this year) and Flyers (fifth with 101) are all but guaranteed to meet in the first round. Peyton Manning Jersey . Begu, who is ranked 10 spots behind the 63rd-ranked Hercog, saved three set points in the tiebreaker. Earlier on the red clay courts at the Country Time Club, seventh-seeded Alize Cornet of France beat Mariana Duque-Marino of Colombia, 6-3, 6-2; Alexandra Cadantu of Romania eliminated Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-2; and Lourdes Dominguez Lino of Spain defeated Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan 6-2, 6-4. Tim Tebow Jersey . Louis Cardinals beat Arizona 6-1 on Tuesday night, handing the Diamondbacks their fourth loss in a row. Beltran, who had one of the Cardinals five homers in their 9-6 series-opening win on Monday, hit a two-run homer off Ian Kennedy in the first, then cleared the bases with a shot into the swimming pool area in right-centre in the seconds, his 10th career grand slam. LaMarr Woodley Jersey . Italy was done in by uncharacteristically poor defending in the second half, as Alexander Kerzhakov broke the deadlock after he was left unmarked in the 60th minute.Colorado bolstered their forward lines by adding the third-leading scorer among unrestricted free agents. Numbers Game looks at the addition of PA Parenteau. The Avalanche get: RW PA Parenteau. A 29-year-old winger who, as a late bloomer, only has two-plus seasons of NHL experience, Parenteau is one of three free agent wingers to have scored at least 65 points last season, tallying 67 in 80 games for the Islanders. The big question when it comes to Parenteaus production is whether or not he can score as much if hes not skating alongside John Tavares, who was the offensive engine for the Islanders. by playing with Tavares, however, Parenteau frequently faced the oppositions top defensive units and that may not be the case quite as often in Colorado where there is more forward depth. In Colorado, Parenteau may not be playing with Tavares, but an opportunity to skate on the wing with Matt Duchene could be a similarly enviable position. Maybe Parenteau never duplicates his 67-point season again, but if he scores over 50 points for the next four seasons, that will be enough production to justify Colorados investment of four years and %16-million. One area in which PParenteau could improve in his new home is in terms of discipline. Torrey Smith Jersey. He had the second-worst penalty differential among Islanders forwards (via www.behindthenet.ca, only Marty Reasoner was worse) and his 13 combined slashing and tripping penalties was third-most among all NHL forwards last season. Whats puzzling is that the Islanders are a team so far below the salary cap that they may have to make some aggressive moves to reach the salary floor, yet they didnt seem particularly interested in keeping their third-leading scorer. It will be up the Islanders to find a way to replace that lost production, whether it comes from a free agent signing, a prospect like Ryan Strome or an increased offensive role for Kyle Okposo or some combination thereof. In the initial assessment, the Colorado Avalanche are a better team by adding a skilled forward like PA Parenteau and the Avs easily have the room to fit his contract into their salary structure which is far below the salary cap.
