CARSON, Calif. - Diego Valeri scored two first-half goals and the Portland Timbers cruised to a 5-0 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night. The win gives Portland the regular-season Western Conference title and with it home-field advantage through at least the first two rounds of the playoffs. Portland (14-5-15) will open the playoffs with an away match on Nov. 2 or 3 against either Seattle, Colorado or the LA Galaxy. With the result, Chivas (6-20-4) became the 15th team in league history to finish a season with at least 20 losses. Valeri scored in 16th and 29th minutes and assisted on Rodney Wallaces 34th-minute goal. Ryan Johnson and Will Johnson scored second-half goals to provide the final margin. Chivas played without starting goalkeeper Dan Kennedy due to an abdominal strain. DeAndre Hopkins Womens Jersey .

And the worst part of this is, Im sure Im going to be a better coach along the way and Im probably never going to win the Jack Adams again.It was a great year. It was fun, but now its behind us.The Avalanche are on a two-game swing through Roys old patch, with games Thursday night in Montreal, where he starred for the Canadiens for 10 seasons, and Friday night in Quebec City, where he built the Remparts into a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League power after his Hall of Fame playing career ended.Roy was lured away last season to become head coach and vice president of hockey operations for the Avalanche, who he helped win two Stanley Cups after his bitter parting with the Canadiens in 1996.The fiery Roys impact was felt immediately on a team stacked with budding stars like Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog and 2013 first overall draft pick Nathan MacKinnon.The Avs finished second overall in the Western Conference and tied a franchise record with 52 victories, although they lost in seven games to Minnesota in the first round of playoffs.Roy told his players at the start of camp not to focus on trying to match the 112 points, but to keep improving their overall game.Were playing in a tough conference, and its pretty easy to be humble in that conference, he said. With the quality of the teams, you know that to make the playoffs you have to be outstanding all year.Last year we were lucky and didnt have many injuries. This is a big factor. We could have as good or better a year than last year and not have 112 points. We want to make sure we continue to get better. Our young guys need to continue to grow. This is how were going to measure ourselves, not with the number of points.Roy wants to continue to play entertaining, offence-oriented hockey, but to improve on defence as well. He understands the Avalanches style leads to a lot of shots against, but he feels if they keep shooters more to the outside and cut down on quality scoring chances they will be a better team.The Avs had five players with 60 or more points last season, although one of them, Paul Stastny, left as a free agent for St. Loouis.ddddddddddddRoy opted to fill the void with older, more experienced players to provide leadership for his young squad. Jarome Iginla was signed as a free agent, and P.A. Parenteau was traded to Montreal for veteran centre Daniel Briere.We were not looking for guys that necessarily be the top players on the team, but we were looking for veterans who could help our younger players to continue to grow, he said.Parenteau filled a need in Montreal, which lost right wingers Thomas Vanek and Brian Gionta in the off-season.The diminutive Briere did not get a lot of ice time in Montreal playing mostly on the fourth line, but he was best in the playoffs, particularly in a tough seven-game win over rival Boston. The Avs intend to use him on their third line.Roy said the deal was good for both clubs.You want players that are happy with you, he said. Im not saying P.A. wasnt happy with us, but this year it would have been tough for him to play on the top two lines and I think he would have been unhappy.This trade will serve him very well. He can play on the top two lines in Montreal, play on the power play. Hes a very good hockey player and Im sure the people in Montreal will love him.Briere and another former Canadien, Alex Tanguay, were not in the lineup in Montreal but were slated to play in Quebec City, which will be an Avs home game.Briere, a Gatineau, Que., native, had only good things to say about is one season in Montreal, which included a trip to the Eastern Conference final.I feel fortunate that I had the chance to play here and wear that uniform for a season, he said. The playoff run we had, and winning in seven games in a Original Six series with Boston was really cool. So there were a lot of good memories.Briere rejoined the team after spending two days in Philadelphia with his son Caeren, who broke a thigh bone playing hockey and underwent surgery on Monday.Duchene, who led the Avs with 70 points last season, likes having the new veterans around.Theyve been through the battles, he said. Theyre looking to win the Cup and they saw us as a team that has a chance. Its good for us young guys. You can learn from the best.Roy said the veterans were excited to see pre-season games scheduled for Montreal and Quebec City, which is where the franchise started out from 1979 to 1995 before moving to Denver.So was Duchene.I love coming into the Bell Centre and looking at the banners up top, he said. Its pretty cool playing under Maurice Richards banner. Hes the reason I wear no. 9.
