REGINA - Rob Bagg has been with the Roughriders long enough to know that football is always a hot topic in Regina. Joc Pederson Jersey . Saskatchewan is coming off a 48-15 blowout loss to the Toronto Argonauts last week. As a result, countless hours of radio talk-show banter and roundtable discussions were devoted to the surprising rout as the highly scrutinized Roughriders fell to 1-1. "Any time you lose youre going to be frustrated or disappointed, all of those natural feelings," Bagg said. "But it is a six-month season and just like every play, you have to reload and move on to the next one. "Were playing B.C. this week and theres nothing we can do about what happened in Toronto." Saskatchewan made some significant moves in preparation for Saturdays home game against the winless B.C. Lions (0-2). Catch the game live on TSN as the back end of a doubleheader starting at 10pm et/7pm pt. Less than 48 hours after the loss to the Argos, the Riders dealt veteran halfback Dwight Anderson to Toronto. On Wednesday, the Riders signed former 1,000-yard rusher Jerome Messam. The 29-year-old Messam, who was cut by the Montreal Alouettes last month, is expected to dress for Saturdays game. The transactions have created a buzz in what has been anything but a calm week for the defending Grey Cup champions. "We knew after Week 1 that we were in for a test (in Toronto)," said Riders defensive end John Chick. "They had a rough week the week before and we knew they were going to come back corrected. They were better prepared in all areas than what we were. "Its nothing about the sky falling here or anything like that. Its about making corrections. We expect perfection and we expect to be a championship team. A performance like last week makes us realize that we have some work to do." Second-year Riders defensive back Macho Harris will take Andersons starting spot in the secondary, while Messam should get his feet wet on special teams versus the Lions. Meanwhile, running back Hugh Charles will get the starting assignment over Anthony Allen, who has started the previous two weeks. Allen leads the CFL in rushing with 224 yards but has fumbled in each of the first two games this season. Tristan Black has been pushing starter Sam Hurl at the weakside linebacker position this week at practice and should see more playing time versus the Lions. Slotback Chris Getzlaf wont play Saturday because of a nagging quadriceps injury and fullback Neal Hughes wont dress because of a foot injury. Riders head coach Corey Chamblin is optimistic his team has moved on from the lopsided loss and is taking in stride the bevy of roster changes ahead of the B.C. game. He likes what he has seen at practice this week. "I was pleased with their energy and I was pleased with their execution," Chamblin said. "Theyre bouncing back, theyre not looking back and theyre moving forward. Guys are starting to become leaders, new guys are starting to become more vocal and theyre starting to open up and trust one another. "Before long, well have the makings of a good team." The Riders expect a hungry Lions team that has dropped its first two games of the season, most recently a 24-9 defeat to the Montreal Alouettes. Quarterback Kevin Glenn, who is filling in for Travis Lulay, has thrown six interceptions in those two losses and running back Andrew Harris has just 63 rushing yards over that span. Both the Lions and Riders will be looking to bounce back from poor performances in Week 2. "Its never as bad as you think it was and its never as good as you think it was," Bagg said. "Most of what happened (in Toronto) didnt have anything to do with the plays. It was more to do with poor execution … and we just need to work better individually and that will take care of itself as a whole." Yasmani Grandal Jersey . - Young and old.

Assistant coach Glen Gulutzan said Thursday that Edler, who played Tuesday in Nashville, is out indefinitely.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Although the Anaheim Ducks are running short on chances to prove theyre more than just a regular-season power, they didnt seem daunted before they headed out on a 30-mile road trip that could define their year. After the best regular season in franchise history, the Ducks have lost four of their past six playoff games heading into a critical Game 3 at Los Angeles on Thursday night. Its barely a slump, and it includes a near-victory that got away with 7 seconds left in regulation in the second-round opener. Yet the Ducks realize what hangs on their latest trip to Staples Center, and theyre comfortable with the risk. "The belief and the confidence in this group is pretty high," Anaheim defenceman Cam Fowler said. "We know that a lot of people are counting us out right now, but that only fuels us." During their best stretches of that remarkable regular season, the Ducks were a dominant offensive team, finishing second in the NHL with 266 goals. With Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry leading the way, Anaheim got consistent scoring from all four lines and methodically broke down almost any defensive team -- including the Kings, who beat the Ducks just once in five tries during the regular season. In the playoffs, Anaheim has managed just three goals against Jonathan Quick in two home losses. The Kings puck-possession style and mistake-free play in their own end are remarkable at times, and even the Ducks appreciated it while spending the past two days figuring out ways to counter it. "They certainly know how to win," Fowler said. "Their style translates well to playoff hockey. Very structured, no mistakes, and make the other team beat you. "Theyve done it before, and when Quick starts playing like he is now, thats when they become a hard team to beat. Theyre certainly peaking at the right time, and we know what were up against, but we have a belief in our group that we can do it." The Ducks have made some unique travel arrangements for the nominal roadd portion of this series. Kirk Gibson Jersey. After Wednesdays practice, they took a bus to a hotel across the street from Staples Center. Theyre staying downtown until Game 4 on Saturday, but theyll also take the bus back to Anaheim for practice on Friday. With just three goals in more than six playoff periods against the Kings, Anaheim might attempt to boost its offence by putting Kyle Palmieri back into the lineup. The goal-scoring wing, a healthy scratch in the Ducks past four games, skated alongside Nick Bonino and Devante Smith-Pelly at practice Wednesday. Palmieri scored a career-best 14 goals in the regular season, and he had five points in last seasons first-round series loss to Detroit. The Kings are up 2-0 in a playoff series for the sixth time in the past three seasons, reaching that mark as the road team an incredible five times. They led all four series 3-0 despite opening on the road each time during their 2012 rampage through the post-season to their first Stanley Cup title. The Kings also were down 0-3 in the first round last month against San Jose, which means they realize theyre only nominally in control of this series. "A 2-0 lead is great, but its not four. We know that better than anybody," Kings centre Jarret Stoll said. "Theyve outchanced us. Theyve beaten us in a lot of areas we need to be better at." The Kings are likely to be without injured defencemen Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr again in Game 3, but Matt Greene and Jeff Schultz have filled in splendidly so far. Even with Quick on top of his game, the Ducks are confident they can get back in the series by getting more pucks past him. They hope to have the support of travelling Anaheim fans after the Kings had a boisterous cheering section at Honda Center, too. "We played pretty well in the first two games, and we remind ourselves of that," Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller said. "I dont think many things need to change. We just need to keep our confidence."
