VAIL, Colo. Louis King Jersey . -- Lindsey Vonn is delaying further surgery on her right knee for as long as possible in hopes of skiing at the Sochi Olympics. Vonn partially tore one of her reconstructed knee ligaments during a crash in training two weeks ago at Copper Mountain. She is seeing if she can ski without another operation because that would all but end any chance of defending her Olympic downhill title in February. Vonn says she likely would be proceeding in the same way even if this werent an Olympic season. "I probably wouldve done what Im doing right now, test it out," Vonn said after a training session at Vail on Sunday. "If I felt like it was possible to keep skiing, I probably wouldve. Either way, at the end of the season, I have to reconstruct the ACL. "So its kind of like, might as well see how long it holds up. Not a lot of options. In the end, surgery is going to have to happen." On a chilly morning, Vonn took two warmup runs followed by three aggressive passes through the super-G course in her race suit, hugging the corners tight and looking quite fast. Afterward, she said her surgically repaired knee felt "really good." So much so that Vonn will travel to Lake Louise, Alberta, this week for downhill training on a course she usually dominates. If training goes well, she will race for the first time since tearing ligaments in her right knee during a high-speed accident at the world championships in February. "Just trying to ski solid," she said. "Im not trying to do race runs. Im trying to build into it. Not push it too hard. But I was still be able to be aggressive and confident in what Im doing so that when I get up to Lake Louise I can hopefully have a good feeling right away." As she rehabbed the knee over the off-season, Vonn was anticipating a return for the nearby Beaver Creek races this weekend. She was on pace, too, before her wipeout at the speed centre in Copper Mountain in which she partially tore her ACL. Vonn said its been difficult to watch Lara Gut of Switzerland win the downhill and super-G races on a new course Vonn was very much look forward to trying out before the 2015 world championships. "Frustrating to miss the race," Vonn said. "Definitely with this current situation, there was no way I couldve skied that bumpy, steep course. I know it was the right decision. That gives me a peace of mind. Im trying to look forward to Lake Louise and cheer for my team." Asked if she planned to attend the giant slalom race on Sunday, Vonn said, "Oh, no. "My family is leaving so Im spending a couple of extra hours with my family. Then, Im going to pack up and get ready for Lake Louise." Vonn needs three wins to match Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proells record of 62 victories in World Cup races.

Mike Aviles went 1 for 2 with a walk and drove in Clevelands run.OTTAWA - On Friday night, the CFLs Ottawa Redblacks will return to the field. The NHLs Senators will take the ice Saturday.Neither game has much significance in the standings for either team — the Redblacks are playing out their disappointing inaugural season while the Sens are just getting their campaign started.But after Wednesdays brazen attack on Parliament Hill, the games have become something more than just sporting events. Players on both teams say they hope to lift the heartbroken citys spirits and help begin the healing process.I think it shows we are defiant to outside threats or acts of terrorism, said Jeff Hunt, president of the Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group, which owns the Redblacks. Were going to continue to live as Canadians and enjoy our lives and enjoy our freedoms. A sporting event is never more important than after something like what happened here in Ottawa.The Redblacks game against the Montreal Alouettes will be the first large scale public gathering since Wednesdays shooting at the National War Memorial and Parliament Hill.Both the Senators, who host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, and Redblacks said fans should expect increased security measures.The Senators said in a release that all patrons will be screened with hand-held metal detectors and have their bags searched before they will be granted access on all future event days at Canadian Tire Centre.Both teams, however, preferred the focus be on the resiliency of Ottawa residents and sports fans.Friday night I think the Redblacks game and our game Saturday that it will be real special to see a cool atmosphere and see everybody come together and show our support for everybody involved through the game, said Senators forward Kyle Turris. Anything we can do to help with spirits or take our minds off things well be happy to do.The Redblacks will hold a pre-game tribute in memory of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was shot and killed Wednesday, as well as two Canadian soldiers who were attacked Monday in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was killed and another Canadian soldier was injured in that attack when a man deliberately drove a car into them.The Senators will also be holding a moment of silence in honour of the weeks events, a special ceremony and anthem presentation. The team is asking fans to wear red to the game in honour of Canadas military personnel and first responders.When this happens hockey takes a backseat, it really is secondary with a tragic incident like this, said Senators Sports & Entertainment president Cyrill Leeder. But hockey is important to Canadians and to our community here and we think we will be an important part of that moving forward process for the community.Both organizations employ a number of local playyers who said Wednesdays events left them shaken, but also incredibly proud. Khyri Thomas Jersey. Its unsettling for sure and its sad to see, said Senators defenceman Mark Borowiecki, who grew up in an Ottawa suburb. Were such a small community and youve got such a small town feel here that sometimes you kind of forget that we are a major city and were the capital of a major western country.Senators defenceman Cody Ceci, who also grew up in Ottawa, had a number of family members working in the downtown core and worried about their safety until he was able to make contact with them.Much was the same for the local members of the Redblacks, who will take particular pride representing their community on Friday.Its special to be able to play in front of my hometown and help people take their minds off the tragedy of what happened, said fullback John Delahunt. When events like this happen Canadians seem to unite so I definitely expect to see a great sense of patriotism from the fans. Im sure it will be an emotional anthem and we can all reflect on what a great country we live in.Players from both organizations spoke of the surreal scope of emotions that went through their minds as events unfolded through the day.Its scary how something like that can happen, said Senators defenceman Chris Phillips. At the same time, as bad as it is, you get a sense of safety with it seeing what a great job the emergency teams did of containing it.Redblacks head coach Rick Campbell said Wednesdays events put the importance of sports in perspective.We always talk in football like you have to act as if its the most important thing in the world because its such a competitive sport, Campbell said. But you have to realize that it really isnt, that there are a lot more important things in the world.Players said they had no concern for their own personal safety despite the shooting.Im sure the security will be top notch and its important to get back to our lives as we know it, Delahunt said. As Canadians we cant let an event like (Wednesdays) change our lives and how we live it.Defensive lineman Keith Shologan said its natural that there will be some safety concerns, but he doesnt expect it will keep anyone from coming to the game.We live in Canada, we live in a peaceful place and these things dont happen very often and I think thats why when they do they hurt so much, Shologan said. If you let things like that affect you then the terrorists are winning.The Senators game against the Toronto Maple Leafs scheduled for Wednesday night was rescheduled for November 9.This marked the second time the Senators have had a game postponed in light of violent events. Ottawa was in Boston preparing to play the Bruins in April 2013 when bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon. ' ' '
