TORONTO - Logan Couture doesn't have to look far to be reminded of the San Jose Sharks' playoff collapse against the Los Angeles Kings.

GLASGOW, Scotland - A Malaysian cyclist at the Commonwealth Games who wore gloves with "Save Gaza" written on them has been reprimanded by his team and warned he will be expelled if he does it again.

TORONTO - The Guinness International Champions Cup is off and running but you can forgive Olympiacos and AC Milan if they are battle-weary after just one game.

In the wake of a 3-0 loss to Olympiacos on Thursday, Milan coach Pippo Inzaghi pointed to a punishing schedule that had his team arrive at 2 a.m. the day of the game from New York after two days travel from Italy.

"We didn't have a chance to train," Inzaghi said through an interpreter. "The players are trying their best."

WASHINGTON - Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard of Canada withdrew Thursday from the Citi Open next week.

Ranked No. 7 in the world, the 20-year-old from Westmount, Que., has made three previous appearances in the Washington event.

Wimbledon semifinalist Lucie Safarova will replace Bouchard as the Citi Open's top seed.
