Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork. Bilal Nichols Jersey .com) - Roberto Luongo continued his dominance of the Buffalo Sabres with his second shutout of the season, lifting the Florida Panthers to a 2-0 victory on Friday. Luongo turned aside all 30 shots fired his way to improve to 5-0-0 with four shutouts against the Sabres over the past two seasons. It takes a team effort to pitch a shutout, Luongo said. Its one of those things where sometimes you feel comfortable. The veteran netminder also moved into sole possession of the 13th place all- time with 68 shutouts, surpassing Roy Worters. Brad Boyes and Nick Bjugstad each scored for Florida, which improved to 3-0-1 against Buffalo this season. Michal Neuvirth gave up both goals on 33 shots for the Sabres, who have dropped three straight and seven of eight. You have one bad period and its really tough to catch up, Sabres head coach Ted Nolan said. Our first period was God-awful. Florida started the scoring just 3:29 into the game. Sean Bergenheim stripped Sabres defenseman Tyson Strachan of the puck behind the net, Aleksander Barkov directed it towards the slot and Boyes beat Neuvirth with a backhander for an early lead. After Mike Weber went off for tripping, Neuvirth stopped Jimmy Hayes backhander, but the rebound went straight to Bjugstad, who wristed it into an open net for a power-play goal and a 2-0 lead with 8:09 remaining in the first period. Luongo stopped 11 shots in the second and 12 more in the third to preserve the win. Game Notes Luongo has not given up a goal in Buffalo since Feb. 11, 2006 ...

At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line." He said evidence will prove that MLB and Selig engaged in behaviour that subjects them to civil, "if not criminal," liability. The New York Yankees star did not attend the hearing. MLB attorney Joseph Baumgarten responded by calling the lawsuit "inappropriate." He said the defendants will seek its dismissal. "It doesnt belong in federal court," he said. Both sides were scheduled to file papers in the case on Friday. A hearing was scheduled for Jan. 23. Siev is seeking to move the case back to state court, where it was originally filed. At one point, U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schoffield noted: "Its ironic. Wholesale Bears Jerseys. Neither side wants to be here, but youre both here." Baumgarten made little mention of Rodriguezs allegations, but Siev used the public forum to lash out at the league and Selig. He said baseballs investigation had a "sole purpose of destroying Rodriguezs career and reputation" and was designed "to get Mr. Rodriguez at all costs in an effort to salvage Mr. Seligs reputation as he heads toward retirement." Siev said Selig "saw this as an opportunity to bring down one of the biggest players in the game." The lawyer recounted some highlights of the lawsuit, including allegations that the league intimidated and offered cash to witnesses, purchased documents and allowed one of its investigators to engage in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a witness. He said the league made sure to leak information about the investigation to the press along the way. Outside court, lawyers declined to comment. The litigation comes after Rodriguez was given a 211-game suspension by the league on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of baseballs drug agreement and labour contract. He also is challenging the suspension.
