VANCOUVER -- Buck Pierce had a big night offensively Friday, but it was a play he made without the ball that helped drag the B.C. Lions out of their late-season swoon. The 31-year-old quarterback with a history of concussions threw a key block near the goal-line on Stefan Logans 54-yard touchdown run in the second quarter as the Lions rebounded from an early 12-1 deficit to defeat the Edmonton Eskimos 43-22 and snap a three-game losing streak. "You need that type of play. You look at the good quarterbacks in this league and thats the way that they play. Thats the CFL," said Pierce, who finished with three touchdowns through the air and another on the ground. "Ive had so many knocks on me for doing stuff like that throughout my career. But Im a football player. "Ive been in this league for nine years and if theyre expecting me to change now, its not going to happen." Pierce replaced the ineffective Thomas DeMarco at the start of the second quarter and connected on two short TDs to Andrew Harris and a long bomb to Emmanuel Arceneaux for the Lions (10-7), who were already locked into the third seed in the CFLs West Division playoff picture coming into the game. Despite those numbers, it was Pierces block that everyone was talking about. "That gives your sideline a tremendous boost," said Lions coach Mike Benevides. "Hes a guy thats gone to war and understands the value of it." With one game to still go in the regular season, B.C. will visit either the Saskatchewan Roughriders or the Calgary Stampeders in the semifinal round on Nov. 10. "Buck came in and he was lights out. I thought he did a phenomenal job of orchestrating the offence," said Lions defensive end Keron Williams. "(Buck) has that grit, he has fight in him. He makes plays out of nothing." Mike Reilly, who signed with the Eskimos (3-14) in the off-season after three years with B.C. as a backup, was 20-of-34 passing for 321 yards and two TDs to Adarius Bowman, but was also intercepted twice. Bowman finished with six catches for 199 yards. Backup quarterback Jonathan Crompton ran in another late score. Former Lions kicker Hugh ONeill finished 2 for 2 on field goals as the Eskimos dropped their fifth straight game. Re-acquired by the Lions last month from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Pierce entered the game at the start of the second quarter trailing 12-1 after conceding a safety and went to work after defensive back J.R. Larose picked off Reilly for the first interception of his career. Logan scored on the very next play, taking a handoff and running right before reversing his field and picking up Pierces block down the left sideline to make it 12-8. Reilly hooked up with Bowman on a 45-yard pass to set up a short ONeill field goal, but Pierce and the Lions offence found its groove once B.C got the ball back. The veteran pivot was calm under pressure and marched his team down the field before finding Harris with a shovel pass from eight yards out to tie the score 15-15. Pierce, who finished 11-of-14 passing for 141 yards, threw his second TD of the night on B.C.s first possession of the third quarter, hooking up with Arceneaux on a 43-yard strike. The Lions got the ball back at midfield later in the quarter and were aided by a pass interference call to set up a short TD pass to Harris, his second of the night to make it 29-15. "We have great playmakers on this team. Our guys, they make plays around you," said Pierce, who also played with the Lions between 2005 and 2009. "As a quarterback in this offence you dont need to win the game. You have to put the ball in the guys hands and sit back and watch them work." B.C. defensive back Cord Parks intercepted Reilly in Edmonton territory early in the fourth quarter to set up a Pierces two-yard plunge. Reilly led the Eskimos down the field and hooked up with Bowman from 14 yards out for his second TD of the night midway through the quarter. DeMarco re-entered the game for the Lions as Pierce took a much deserved break late and threw a four-yard pass to Arceneaux for his second TD to make it 43-22. Crompton then dove into the end zone with under a minute to go for Edmonton to round out the scoring. DeMarco got his sixth straight start in place of injured No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay, but did nothing for a stagnant Lions offence in the first quarter, completing just 2-of-6 passes for 11 yards. Lulay has been out since suffering an injury to his throwing shoulder on Sept. 15 against the Montreal Alouettes. He was originally expected to miss just two weeks, but theres still no timetable for his return. Many in the crowd at B.C. Place Stadium were still getting to their seats when Reilly hit Bowman for a 71-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. ONeill then kicked in a field goal from 23 yards out later in the quarter to make it 10-0. The Lions talked all week about using their final two regular season game to get back on track ahead of the playoffs, but their offence was anything but fluid early under DeMarco, with the only first down of the opening quarter coming with less than four minutes to play. That drive stalled and the Lions were forced to punt, with Paul McCallum booting into the Edmonton end zone for a single point that drew a Bronx cheer from the crowd. Notes: Logan signed with B.C. last week after four seasons in the NFL. He spent the 2008 campaign with the Lions. ... B.C. hosts Calgary next week, while Edmonton visits Saskatchewan. He rushed for 121 yards to become the Lions first 100-yard rusher since late July. ... The Lions also defeated the Eskimos in the other two meetings this season, 17-3 in the Alberta capital on July 13 and 31-21 in the return match in Vancouver seven days later. ... The Lions defence gave up points on the first drive of a game for the first time since Week 1.

.com) - Patrik Elias registered the winner in the shootout as New Jersey nipped Toronto 2-1 at Prudential Center on Wednesday.LOS ANGELES - Rudy Gays short-lived Raptors career came to an abrupt end just over 10 months after it began. Masai Ujiri and the Raptors pulled the trigger on a seven-player deal that will send Gay to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for four players, Yahoo Sports first reported Sunday evening. In a deal that could save them as much as $14.5 million next season, the Raptors acquire guards Greivis Vasquez and John Salmons along with forwards Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes in exchange for Gay, Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy. Neither team can comment on the trade directly until after its made official on Monday. "Its never a good time to lose one of your starting players but its a situation we all have to roll with and go with," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said moments before facing Kobe Bryant and the Lakers with only 11 players in uniform. After coming to Toronto in a three-team trade from Memphis on Jan. 30, Gay fell out of favour this season, averaging 19.4 points and 7.4 rebounds while shooting just 39 per cent from the field. Gay can opt out and become a free agent at the end of the year but the Raptors believed he wouldnt walk away from the $19.3 million hes owed, the primary motive for Ujiri. Of the four players coming to Toronto, only Hayes contract is fully guaranteed past this season. Salmons is partially guaranteed for next season - the Raptors would only owe him $1 million if hes waived before June 30 - while Vasquez and Salmons would become free agents this summer if Toronto pulls their qualifying offers. The Raptors went 18-18 after acquiring Gay last season - the sixth best record in the Eastern Conference during that span - but the team, like Gay himself, have gotten off to a disappointing start in 2013-14. Only two players in the league (Vince Carter and Kemba Walker) are shooting worse than Gay (minimum 200 field goal attempts) while the Raptors have won just six of their first 18 games, dropping their last five. Looking to address redundancy at the wing positions - with Gay and the similar DeMar DeRozan accounting for the bulk of Torontos shots - Ujiri opted to hold onto the younger DeRozan, who is having a career season. "Its just part oof the game," said DeRozan after learning about the trade.dddddddddddd. "You think about it but you try to do the best that you can on the court so it doesnt get to the point to where you start questioning whether one or the other will be here." "Its crazy just to see a friend like that go, but once youve been through it a couple of times you kind of understand its part of the game and part of the business," DeRozan said, citing last years trade that brought Gay to Toronto and sent Ed Davis - one of his best friends - to Memphis. Gay was informed of the trade earlier in the day and did not travel with the team to Staples Center. Most of his teammates were informed of the deal after arriving at the arena, including Gray and Acy. Coming off a career year in New Orleans, where he averaged 13.9 points and 9.0 assists, Vasquez fills a need for the Raptors at the point guard position and also makes Kyle Lowry expendable in a subsequent trade. The 26-year-old Venezuelan excels in the pick-and-roll, a weak point for Caseys Raptors and could help aid the continued development of Jonas Valanciunas. Hayes and Patterson are both capable frontcourt players that can be used situationally off the bench in Toronto. Patterson, 24, is averaging 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17 games with the Kings this season. Selected with the 14th overall pick in 2010 by Houston, Patterson can stretch the floor while Hayes, 30, provides the toughness, rebounding and veteran leadership Casey has been looking for. Landry Fields started in Gays place against the Lakers Sunday. He and sophomore Terrence Ross figure to see an increase in playing time without Gay - who was playing over 35 minutes a night - in the lineup. "Were losing three great guys in my opinion," Fields said. "So its tough but at the end of the day its part of the business. You dont get used to it but you have to shake it off." Acy, 23, had played in 36 games with the Raptors over the past two season - averaging 3.8 points and 2.6 rebounds - after Toronto selected him with the 37th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. Gray, who turned 27 on Saturday has been used sparingly in two-plus years with the team.
