topped Drew Doughtys point shot but kicked it right t

Following the Supreme Courts warning to the BCCI to fall in line and follow the directive to implement the Lodha Committees recommendations, the boards defiance seems to have given way to a mixture of anxiety and uncertainty a day before its crucial special general meeting on Friday in Mumbai. .The agenda for the SGM, the BCCI had pointed out last week, would be to consider directions of Justice (Retd) Lodha Committee in connection with the formal adoption of the new Memorandum of Association and Rules for the BCCI.The court asked the BCCI to respond within a week to the status report submitted by the Lodha Committee on Wednesday. If the BCCI fails to adopt the new Memorandum of Association and Rules at Fridays meeting, the board risks facing further flak from the court. The BCCI could wait for the court to issue a directive based on the boards response to the status order, but either way there were not many options left for the BCCI, keeping in mind the two sets of timelines drawn by the Lodha Committee, the first of which will expire on Friday, September 30.A number of board members ESPNcricinfo spoke to admitted to being clueless about the BCCIs next course of action, and said it would be chalked out by president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke at the SGM. An experienced administrator termed it a crisis, but said it was not the end of the road for the BCCI. He felt if the court did not budge, it was time for a new wave of administrators to take charge.A BCCI office-bearer said the board was looking to drag things for as long as it could. You should understand one thing: whatever needs to be done, well do it, he said. The affidavit [filed by the BCCI] is just to prolong things as far as possible.Some members were, however, wary of the aggressive stance taken by the Lodha Committee and the Supreme Court. The president of a south zone association said the BCCIs response had to be measured, and people needed to be careful about what they said.Another office-bearer of the board, meanwhile, faulted the confrontational approach adopted by the BCCI so far, and said the members of the board were not apprised of relevant developments. Nobody is kept in the loop. Only president and secretary know whats happening, he said. The BCCI has always been [president and secretary-centric]; thats the problem we have. All the members could have actually interacted individually with the Lodha Committee, but that was denied. From the beginning itself it has been derailed and we have never got an opportunity to put it on track. From there on, things are messed up.Ever since the court approved the Lodha recommendations on July 18, the BCCI has resolutely opposed them. The main recommendations the BCCI does not agree with are the cooling-off period after a three-year term, imposing an age cap of 70 for administrators, and having an official of the Comptroller and Auditor General on the proposed Apex Council. The proposed Apex Council is itself contentious as it would replace the existing, and powerful, working committee and the one-state-one-vote proposal, which would bring Mumbai, Maharashtra, Vidarbha. Gujarat, Saurashtra and Baroda under one cluster and limit their voting power to just one vote by rotation.Most state associations, too, have continued to wait for the BCCIs direction on amending their constitutions. So far, only the Vidarbha Cricket Association has decided to put to vote whether the Lodha recommendations can be adopted by the September 30 deadline set by the committee in its first set of timelines.From being unresponsive at the beginning to openly critical of the Lodha Committee, the BCCI has pursued a combative strategy. Last week, it asked three former India captains, Ravi Shastri, Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev - all hired by the board as television commentators - to back its stance and ask the Lodha Committee to modify some of the recommendations through a dialogue.However, RM Lodha, the chairman of the Lodha Committee, made it clear that there cant be any dialogue.Our recommendations have merged with the July 18 judgment after the Supreme Court accepted them and ordered their implementation, Lodha told the Times of India. The recommendations are part of the judgment. Any attempt to impede implementation of the reform recommendations would be construed as non-implementation of the judgment itself. . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. . -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making. LOS ANGELES -- Devin Setoguchi and Peter Budaj came through with some rare success for the Los Angeles Kings.Setoguchi scored twice for his first multi-goal game in more than 2 1/2 years, Budaj stopped 24 shots for his first NHL shutout in just over three years as the Kings beat the Calgary Flames 5-0 on Saturday night.Jeff Carter, Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings, who got their first regulation win this season.Budaj, who started the season in the American Hockey League, didnt have much work but stayed engaged throughout in his first shutout since Oct. 28, 2013.Youve got to try to stay focused on the puck and nothing else, Budaj said. You watch it on the ice as much as you can and dont try to think too much or try to think, `Oh we have a lot of shots, they dont have any shots. Those thoughts are going to creep up on you but you eliminate those thoughts,Setoguchis two-goal effort was his first since Jan. 31, 2014. He scored with 14 seconds left in the first period when he caught a rebound on the doorstep and swept it past a diving Brian Elliott to make it 2-0. His second came with 3:51 left in the second when he jammed a loose puck under Elliotts pad to push the lead to 4-0.Its been a long time. I cant even remember the last time I scored, Setoguchi said. It was a good feeling tonight. I feel like I was trending in the right direction after the last game and Ive got to consistently work at it and keep getting to the net and getting shots.Setoguchi was part of an increased effort by the Kings to get to the net. The results were positive four goals scored off rebounds.Thats how you score, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. Thats not a reward, thats real. It can;t hit you in the ass and go in the net if youre not close to the net.Elliott had 34 saves for the Flames, who lost for the third time in fourr games. Elliott has allowed nine goals his last two starts.Flames coach Glen Gulutzan felt his team was intimidated by the heavy checking Kings.I think we were a little bit intimidated to begin with, Gulutzan said. Two quick goals with a minute left, that was a killer after some good penalty killing. We needed to get out of that period and regroup and we just couldnt do it.Lewis made it 5-0 when he scored his second goal in two games 72 seconds into the third period. Elliott stopped Drew Doughtys point shot but kicked it right to Lewis in front of the crease, who buried the rebound.The Kings got out to a hot start in the first period, outshooting the Flames 15-5 and scoring twice in the final minute to jump out to a 2-0 lead.Carter opened the scoring when he sniped one past Elliott from the right circle with 58.7 seconds left to play in the first, 45 seconds before Setoguchis first.Clifford scored his first goal of the season when he finished off a feed from Nick Shore by banking it off the crossbar at 8:11 in the second period, making the score 3-0.Game notes Five goals was a season-high for Los Angeles. ...
