Pens Win Behind Pouliot Debut-Game Goal
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Derrick Pouliot scored in his NHL debut and Sidney Crosby had a third-period goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 3-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 45 shots for his fifth win in six games and 19th overall. Pouliot, a prized prospect on defense, scored the eventual game-winner in the first period after he was recalled on Saturday. Nick Spaling netted his fifth for the Penguins, who won a season-high fifth straight game at home. Pittsburgh has defeated Florida in 12 of the last 14 meetings at home and 21 of 29 overall. Pittsburgh native Vincent Trocheck, a healthy scratch the previous two games, scored his third of the season for the Panthers, who went to overtime in their previous four games. Roberto Luongo made 31 saves for Florida.

Ali hospitalized
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Boxing great Muhammad Ali has been hospitalized. A spokesman for the three-time heavyweight champion says Ali has a mild case of pneumonia that was caught early and should result in a short hospital stay. The spokesman says the 72-year-old Ali is being treated by his team of doctors and is in stable condition. The family has requested that no other details be released, including the hospital's location, according to the spokesman.

Shazier Ready
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier is hoping for a heavier workload on Sunday against Kansas City. Shazier has been limited mostly to work on special teams each of the last two weeks after missing seven of Pittsburgh's first 12 games due to separate leg injuries. Shazier says he's back to 100 percent and hopes to be a bigger part of the game plan.

Chargers Rally to Stay Alive
UNDATED (AP) - Nick Novak hit a 40-yard field goal to complete the San Diego Chargers' comeback in a 38-35 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. Novak's game-winning kick came after Niners wide receiver Quinton Patton fumbled on the first possession of OT. The Chargers trailed 28-7 at halftime and 35-21 with under six minutes in regulation before Philip Rivers hit Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd for touchdowns. Floyd's scoring grab came with 29 seconds left and helped San Diego improve to 9-6. Rivers threw for 356 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick ran for 151 yards on seven carries, including a career-best 90-yard touchdown run. But Kaepernick also threw for just 114 yards.

Eagles' Fade Continues
UNDATED (AP) - Critical turnovers and missed field goals have the Philadelphia Eagles on the brink of elimination from the NFC playoff hunt. Kai Forbath hit a 26-yard field goal with five seconds left to give Washington a 27-24 win over the Eagles. It came following an interception by Mark Sanchez, who also had a first-quarter fumble that set up a field goal. Cody Parkey missed field-goal tries of 34 and 46 yards after stalled drives by the Eagles. Sanchez completed 37 of his 50 passes for 374 yards and two touchdowns, but his two turnovers contributed to the Eagles' third straight loss. Philadelphia dropped to 9-6 and now needs the Dallas Cowboys to lose their final two games to have a shot at repeating as NFC East champs. Robert Griffin III threw for 220 yards, no touchdowns and one interception for Washington, which improved to 4-11.

Bowl barrage begins
UNDATED (AP) - The college football bowl seasons has kicked off with five of the 39 postseason games that are scheduled. Travis Wilson ran for three touchdowns and passed for another in leading No. 23 Utah to a 45-10 rout of Colorado State in the Las Vegas Bowl. Wilson rushed for a season-high 91 yards on 11 carries and completed 17 of 26 passes for 158 yards.

Shayne Davern ran for a career-high 101 yards and two touchdowns to lead Air Force to a 38-24 over Western Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Dexter Walker returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown to help the Falcons finish 10-3.

Terrance Broadway passed for 227 yards and a touchdown as Louisiana-Lafayette beat Nevada 16-3 to win the New Orleans Bowl for the fourth straight time. Hunter Stover kicked three field goals for the 9-4 Ragin' Cajuns.

Nick Vigil ran for a touchdown and also combined with his brother to make 16 tackles as Utah State shut down UTEP 21-6 in the New Mexico Bowl. It's the third straight bowl victory for the 10-4 Aggies, a first in school history.

Roger Lewis caught a 78-yard touchdown pass from James Knapke with 1:04 remaining to lift Bowling Green to a 33-28 victory over South Alabama in the inaugural Camellia Bowl. Knapke was named MVP after completing 25 of his 39 passes for 368 yards and two long touchdowns to Lewis.
