. During a season in which the Senators have had their depth tested by injuries, including long-term casualties Daniel Alfredsson and Jason Spezza, theyve been able to rely on a career-best start to the season by Fisher in order to stay on course for a return to the playoffs in the Eastern Conference. Tony Romo JerseyMemphis, TN (Sports Network) - Fourth seed Marina Erakovic was a hard-fought quarterfinal victor Thursday at the $220,000 Memphis International tennis event. Tony Gonzalez Jersey .

The 2012 Memphis winner will collect $37,000. Earl Thomas Jersey .C. -- After four years of seemingly never-ending knee and weight issues, Sean May faces an uncertain summer as an unrestricted free agent after the Charlotte Bobcats decided not to make a qualifying offer to their former first-round pick. John Kuhn Jersey . Jason Spezza led the way with three goals and three assists and his line - which also includes Daniel Alfredsson and Dany Heatley - collected 15 points as the Senators defeated the Canadiens 6-1 on Saturday night. Danny McCray Jersey . The 19th-seeded Thornhill, Ont., native, will face a true clay test in the next round when he plays Argentinas Juan Monaco after the 13th seed defeated Czech Lukas Rosol 7-6 (4), 6-0, 7-6 (5). Nnamdi Asomugha Jersey . -- The Dallas Stars figured it was only a matter of time until the breaks fell their way. Brian Urlacher Jersey . The 17-year-old Dumba played the last two seasons for the Red Deer Rebels in Alberta of the Western Hockey League, leading WHL defencemen in the 2011-12 season with 20 goals in 69 games.MIAMI -- Receiver Chad Ochocinco had a tryout with the Miami Dolphins, who are thin at the position and dropping a lot of passes in off-season drills. Coach Joe Philbin confirmed Monday that the Dolphins gave Ochocinco a workout. He was released Thursday by the New England Patriots. "We are going to do our homework. We are going to investigate," Philbin said. "I dont think that its any different than any position. You always evaluate your roster." Ochocinco, 34, is a Miami native who played for the Hurricanes. He made the Pro Bowl six times, most recently in 2009, but had only a minor role in his lone season with the Patriots, catching 15 passes for 276 yards. The Dolphins traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chiicago Bears in March for two third-round draft picks, and didnt draft a receiver until the sixth round. Devin Hester Jersey. . Philbin conceded there has been room for improvement in the pass-catching during off-season workouts, including an OTA Monday. "You would like to have some players make it easy and distinguish themselves, maybe make the picture a little bit clearer," Philbin said. "We have to catch the ball more consistently at every position on offence, because it is not quite where it needs to be." Marshalls off-the-field issues wore on the Dolphins, and they might consider Ochocinco too high-maintenance. His antics have sometimes annoyed his teammates and coaches, and his touchdown celebrations led to an NFL crackdown. ' ' '
