The NHL added yet another name to the growing list of suspended players this season on Wednesday. Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Deryk Engelland was suspended five games by the NHL for an illegal hit to the head on Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader on Saturday. In the first period of the Penguins 4-1 victory over the Red Wings, Engelland landed a shoulder to the head of Abdelkader as he was cutting across the ice. Engelland was given a five-minute major and ejected from the game with a match penalty for the illegal hit. Abdelkader struggled to get back to his feet and had to be helped off the ice by his teammates, he did not return to the game. Stitched Cardinals Jerseys . The freestyle skier from Calgary finished sixth in the qualification round with a total of 82.00 points. Groenewoud won a silver medal at the X Games last month, just over five weeks after undergoing double knee surgery. Cardinals Harrison Bader Jersey . 1 status and was unable to prevent a late season collapse, James Reimer said he wants to put the past behind him and is looking forward to spending the next two years in a Maple Leaf uniform. It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points.

Every 30 seconds when a hurricane threatens, a U.S. Air Force Hurricane Hunter sends a burst of data to computers tracking the storm.
An Air Force C-130 was the first to signal that Hurricane Charley had become a category 4 powerhouse on Friday. The planes make multiple passes through the storms eye, dropping probes into the air to measure wind speed, barometric pressure, and the temperature of the air and the water below it.
But despite the technology available today, Charley proved how difficult the art of forecasting can be.
With hurricanes, each one has its own personality, said Lt. Col. Ron Marx, pilot of a hurricane hunter flight out of Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi. Even if we fly in the same one multiple times, every time we go its different.
Hurricane Charley was a stern reminder of that. As late as Friday morning, some forecasts said there was a good chance the storm would hit Tampa, Fla., directly. But at the last moment, it made a slight turn to the right.
The storms path only shifted about 50 miles, but to people in that path, those 50 miles were crucial.
I never thought it was going to come right straight across and hit us like this, said one storm victim.
‘Well Never Have a Perfect Forecast’
Forecasters themselves know better than to be surprised by the last-minute surprises every storm offers. They issued hurricane warnings for the entire west coast of Florida thee day before landfall.dddddddddddd
Hurricanes make these kinds of wobbles all the time, said Ed Rappaport, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Its another reason why the warning area is larger than the storm itself.
The hurricane hunters send data from the storms center, while satellites provide views from above. The information is analyzed by more than half a dozen different computer models.
In Charleys case, probes from the C-130s reported that the waters of the Gulf of Mexico were in the high 80s — unusually warm, even for August. That probably boosted the storms strength.
But a hurricane is infinitely complex. If it changes course or intensity, meteorologists with todays technology may never know why.
After 18 years of flying through hurricanes, your respect for these things continues to grow, said U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Valerie Hendry, a hurricane hunter weather officer.
The National Hurricane Center said its predictions improve by a few percent every year. Still, the best computer models tend to miss by 40 or 50 miles — 40 or 50 crucial miles.
Thats certainly our goal, to have a track forecast without error, said Scott Kiser, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Of course, given the wills and wiles of mother nature, well probably never have a perfect forecast.
