Morgantown, WV ( - Following their weakest offensive effort of the season, the 18th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers try to get back on track on Saturday afternoon as they welcome the TCU Horned Frogs to town for a Big 12 Conference tussle. West Virginia, which opened the campaign with seven straight wins and 14 in the first 15 outings overall, has since dropped two of the last three. The latest defeat saw the team perform quite poorly at nationally-ranked Texas last weekend in a 77-50 final. Just four days earlier, the Mountaineers came out on the positive side of a 21-point victory versus Oklahoma, so theyve experienced both the good and the bad of blowouts in recent weeks. As for the Horned Frogs, theyve hit a serious snag in conference play already, losing four of the first five decisions. Aside from a 62-42 thrashing of Texas Tech at home last weekend, TCU has had little to cheer about in the month of January. Earlier this week the Frogs played their third Top-25 opponent this month, losing to Texas at home, 66-48. West Virginia has won all five previous meetings between the programs, including a 78-67 decision in Fort Worth earlier this month. In that contest Gary Browne scored 16 points for the visitors, followed by Devin Williams with 14 and eight rebounds while Juwan Staten was missing in action due to illness. Kyan Anderson responded with a game-high 19 points and Trey Zeigler 17 as both players shot 9-of-12 at the free-throw line for the Horned Frogs in the setback. The Horned Frogs converted just 1-of-11 shots behind the 3-point line and made only eight field goals overall in the first half against visiting Texas earlier this week, en route to the blowout loss. Kenrich Williams was the only player for the home team to land in double figures with his 10 points, while the other four starters combined to shoot only 6-of-25 from the floor for a unit that was a mere 3-of-18 out on the perimeter. Anderson, who finished with just two points in 25 minutes against the Longhorns, continues to pace TCU in scoring during conference play with his 12.8 ppg, although his mere 26.1 percent accuracy on the outside is bringing the entire program down to a miserable 21.0 percent through five games. Zeigler checks in with 11.6 ppg and has combined with Anderson to account for 32 of the teams 49 assists, but still this is a group scoring only 57.8 ppg. The effort put forth by the Mountaineers against Texas was simply awful last weekend, the visitors converting just seven field goals in the first half and then dropping to six baskets after the break. Overall, WVU finished with more turnovers (17) than field goals and connected on a mere 24.1 percent from the floor overall. Browne was the lone double-digit scorer with 14 points, while the other four starters combined to convert only 5-of-20 from the field. Staten made 1-of-7 from the field and finished with three points. Staten has been the most reliable sources for offense this season for the Mountaineers, as he is putting up 15.0 ppg, but clearly he doesnt always bring his best effort to the court. He is shooting only 40.8 percent from the field, but has tried to temper that with a team-best 68 assists, twice as many as his closest teammate. Devin Williams accounts for another 10.8 ppg and is first on the glass with 7.7 rpg to help provide West Virginia with a rebounding edge of 5.0 per game.

The Devils are getting good goaltending from Cory Schneider and Martin Brodeur, and anything is possible when the guy in the nets is on his game. The Toronto Maple Leafs are another story. Theyre struggling in goal with Jonathan Bernier out with a groin injury and they are barely hanging on to a playoff spot. It was on display Sunday night. Schneider made 21 saves and withstood a furious late attack and Devils posted a much-needed 3-2 win over Toronto, sending the struggling Maple Leafs to their fifth straight loss without Bernier. The win moved the Devils within five points of Toronto for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Washington is a point behind the Maple Leafs with a game in hand and Columbus is two points back with two games in hand. "I know the statistics dont say that but I really feel we can win every game," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said of the Devils playoff chances after winning for only the second time in six games. "You look at our schedule and if our goaltending continues to play the way it is, I think we can win every game." The Devils won this matchup by taking advantage of Toronto mistakes to take a 3-0 lead early in the second period. Rookie defenceman Jon Merrill set up a second-period breakaway goal by Patrik Elias and scored 32 seconds later to build the lead. Damien Brunner had scored in the first period. "Anything is possible," Devils captain Bryce Salvador said. "We are not looking 10 games ahead. Were just looking at the next game. Were trying to play every game like its the last game." Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel scored for the Maple Leafs, who saw embattled goaltender James Reimer give up three goals on 10 shots in less than 22 minutes of action. The skid ties Torontos longest of the season and it could not have come at a worse with nine games left in the regular season. New Jersey, which was shut out twice in its recent slide, capitalized on bad plays by the Maple Leafs. Brunner, who had been a healthy scratch the past two games, gave the Devils the lead with his 11th goal of the season. Defenceman Marek Zidlicky started the play with a pass up the ice to Adam Henrique that started an off-man rush. Henrique found Brunner coming down the right side and his shot from the circle went over Reimers glove. The game changed in the opening two minutes of the second period and Merrill was the catalyst. Controlling the puck in his own end, he made a stretch pass that got Elias behind defenceman Morgan Rielly. Elias skated in on Reimer and made a move to his backhand that deked the goaltender out of position for a shot into an empty net. Defenceman Peter Harrold, who had not dressed in the Devills 12 games following the Olympic break, carried the puck low into the Maple Leafs right circle and sent a pass toward the net.dddddddddddd Ryane Clowe had it hit off him and go to the left point, where Merrill unloaded a shot that squeezed through the goaltender and rolled into the net. "I think that was the best 30 seconds of my career so far," Merrill said with a laugh. "Everyone in here believes. We know if we keep playing our game and doing things right, we are going to get wins and points and we can make it." Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle sent Drew MacIntyre to replace Reimer after the third goal. He had been playing for the AHLs Toronto Marlies this season before being recalled after Bernier was hurt. He finished with 14 saves. The Maple Leafs played a lot better the rest of the game. Bozak put them on the board at 5:26 of the second period, redirecting a pass by Rielly on a power play into an open net. Kessel got his 36th of the season with 1:31 to play after Toronto pulled its goaltender with more than two minutes left in regulation. Kessel crashed into the net after the goal but returned for a wild final 91 seconds in which Schneider made two big saves. "We have lot of games left we have to come together as a team and battle," said Bozak, who repeatedly said that the team let Reimer down and it wasnt fair to blame the goaltender. Carlyle refused to discuss his goaltending situation. "We have to find a way to stop the bleeding here and do everything in our power to regroup with this hockey club and get them playing to a higher level," he said. "When we do play for stretches, we look like a team that could play with anybody, and then we are inept in some areas where the puck doesnt bounce our way, or hits a post. All the good fortune we had earlier seems piled against us." Toronto had plenty of good scoring chances the rest of the way with none greater than a two-man advantage for 1:16 late in the period. Dion Phaneuf and Cody Franson had big shots that Schneider stopped in winning his second straight after losing the previous three. Schneiders best saves might have been early in the third period when he came across the crease and stopped James van Riemsdyk in close and made a glove save on Bozak after the Leafs pulled their goaltender. The game was David Clarksons first in New Jersey since signing with the Maple Leafs as a free agent after last season. NOTES: Bernier did not make the trip to New Jersey in missing his fifth straight game. ... Harrolds assist was his first point since Nov. 12 against the Rangers. ...
