TORONTO -- Joffrey Lupul and the Toronto Maple Leafs cant seem to catch a break on the injury front. The oft-injured winger missed practice Wednesday with what coach Randy Carlyle called a "bruised lower calf area" as a result of a collision with P.A. Parenteau of the Colorado Avalanche a night earlier. Lupuls status for Thursdays game at the Nashville Predators is unclear, though he was set to travel with the team. "I would say that when you say a players day to day, it would be totally dependent upon how he feels," Carlyle said. "Hopefully the swelling (subsides) and itll be back to normal shortly." Lupul, who missed the start of training camp with back spasms and all but 16 games last year with a broken arm and concussion, got some treatment and rode a stationary bike Wednesday. Meanwhile, AHL call-up Josh Leivo took his place on the second line alongside Mason Raymond and Dave Bolland. Leivo wasnt the only new face as the Leafs again spun the wheel on minor leaguers, bringing up forward David Broll and defenceman T.J. Brennan and sending Trevor Smith and Jamie Devane back to the Toronto Marlies. The Leafs are still trying to find the right mix amid injuries to Nikolai Kulemin (ankle) and Frazer McLaren (finger) and the suspension of David Clarkson. Border-line NHL forwards Carter Ashton and Troy Bodie already have regular spots in the lineup and the team has tried Spencer Abbott, Devane and Smith to plug holes early in the young season. "I think that we owe it to our players to be a little bit more consistent with our lineup," Carlyle said. "Our hands been forced through some injuries and then the birth of a child (Tuesday), all those things play into it. Thats the adversity you have to deal with in the NHL." Forward Jay McClement was back on the ice with teammates Wednesday after missing the Colorado game to be his wife, Lesley, who gave birth to the couples first child. Reid McClement is healthy and doing well, according to his father. "The timing was tough, I definitely didnt want to miss a game for it," McClement said. "But its not something you want to miss. I think its one of those life experiences that Ill never forget. I was glad I was there. As much as we tried to plan not to miss any games, you cant fight Mother Nature sometimes." Barring unforeseen changes, McClement could go back to his role as the fourth-line centre Thursday. Its quite possible that Broll makes his NHL debut on the wing. "Im going to appreciate it for the opportunity Ive got, but its the hard thing about staying here," Broll said. "Its one thing getting called up, but the next thing now for me is just trying to stay here as long as I can and prove myself." Broll watched as a few former Marlies teammates played sparingly for the Leafs over the past couple of games. The 20-year-old figures thats to be expected and knows young players must earn their minutes. Thats difficult if Toronto falls behind as it did Tuesday against Colorado and Saturday against the Ottawa Senators, when Carlyle had little choice but to shorten his bench. Because of injuries, the Leafs became a two-line team that mixed in centre Nazem Kadri as much as possible and veteran enforcer Colton Orr on occasion. Its tough to win that way, especially against opponents that are fresher early in the season. But Carlyle didnt want to make excuses. "I can remember the Ottawa Senators last year (at) the beginning of the season, they just kept losing body after body after body and there was a lot made out of it that they were continuing to find ways, and thats what we expect out of our group," he said. "We have to find ways to have success." Brennan was part of a similar injury situation last year, traded to the Florida Panthers after they dealt with a torrent of players going down. By the time the defenceman arrived, the Panthers "already took a real big blow." This time around, Brennan considers the bevy of call-ups an example of organizational depth. "Obviously its a great honour being acknowledged for guys like Leivo and (Broll) and Abbott being called up so early," he said. "Obviously its just something to shoot for." Brolls mentality for earning minutes is to go shift by shift, hoping he plays well enough to earn another. Thats not exactly stability, but its reality for Leafs forwards right now. "Hopefully one of us can just jump in and stick for a bit because they got a couple injuries right now," Leivo said. "Im looking at it as an opportunity, not a challenge." Denis Herron Jersey .

Ab McDonald Jersey .com) - Mike Miller scored a season-high 21 points in a rare start and the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 95-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Pittsburgh Penguins Shirts . -- EJ Manuel followed the worst game of his career with the best. DENVER -- Miguel Montero predicted this kind of night for himself, an evening he would long remember. He told Henry Blanco as they hung around the batting cage before the game that he was due to have "one of those crazy days when you get 6 or 7 RBIs. ... So, I guess I called it." Certainly did. Montero drove in a career-high six runs, Paul Goldschmidt hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the Colorado Rockies to their sixth straight loss, 16-8 on Wednesday night. The Rockies led 8-5 when the Diamondbacks scored six times in the eighth to reclaim the lead. They were hardly done, adding five more in the ninth to turn a close game into a runaway. The Diamondbacks tied a season high with 21 hits. The top five hitters in the lineup had three hits each and combined for 14 RBIs. Montero led the way as he drove in two runs on sacrifice flies, had a run-scoring single and hit a three-run homer in the ninth. "It was awesome," Montero said. Brad Ziegler (2-1) got two outs in the seventh to earn the win. Rex Brothers (2-4) took the loss after the big eighth. The Rockies starter Jordan Lyles broke his left hand in the first inning when he tried to tag out Martin Prado at home after a wild pitch. Lyles used two hands to catch the ball when it was thrown back to him then left after the fourth. "I knew something was wrong, because Ive never felt that feeling before," said Lyles, who was wearing a bandage on his hand. "I didnt want to come out in the first, make the bullpen go nine. Thankfully, we got four innings." Asked how long Lyles might be out, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, "for a little bit." Arizona surrendered four runs in the seventh to fall behind, but responded right away as Brothers imploded. The reliever gave up four straight singles, including a run-scoring liner by Chris Owings, and then then walked Gerardo Parra with the bases loaded to bring in another run. Nick Masset was summoned from the bullpen and promptly gave up Goldschmidts double down the line. "Youre just looking for something you can hit hard," Goldschmidt explained.dddddddddddd "The pitch ran a little bit inside but I think it was right on the corner and I was able to hit it." Didi Gregorius led off the game with a solo homer as Arizona built an early 4-0 lead. The Rockies came back with four runs in the fifth and four more in the seventh. D.J. LeMahieus two-out infield single in the seventh tied the game and a throwing error by Owings at shortstop allowed the Rockies to take the lead. Pinch-hitter Drew Stubbs also added a two-run single. Brothers faced five batters without getting an out. He allowed five runs. "Im not going to talk about Rexs situation right now, as far as his future," Weiss said. "Just got to keep working through it, like all of us do. Its up to us to turn this thing around, each guy. Nobody is going to do it for us." Arizona starter Josh Collmenter, coming off a complete-game win, was cruising until the fifth when the Rockies broke out of their offensive funk. Troy Tulowitzki had a two-run double and Michael Cuddyer followed with a two-run single. Tulowitzki slid just past Monteros tag for the tying run. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson challenged the play but after a quick review, the call was upheld. Tulowitzki leads the majors in batting (.354) and All-Star votes (1,419,718). "With the streak weve been on, to have Lyles break his hand, its unfortunate," Tulowitzki said. "Weve had a lot of hand injuries." Before the game, Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed left index finger. Its another big bat out of the lineup as third baseman Nolan Arenado (fractured finger) went on the DL on May 24. NOTES: The Diamondbacks said on their Twitter account Wednesday that INF Cliff Pennington underwent surgery to fix a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. ...
