ATZENBRUGG, Austria - Englands Adam Gee and Swedens Mikael Lundberg shot 5-under 67 to share a one-stroke lead on a windy and cloudy opening day of the Lyoness Open on Thursday. Starting on the back nine, Gee eagled the par-4 14th hole but bogeyed the 18th before carding three birdies on the front nine. Lundberg hit six birdies and lost a stroke on the par-3 second. The Swede, who came through the European Tour Qualifying School for a third straight year, is looking for his first title since winning the Russian Open for a second time in 2008. Lundberg said hes improved since working with new coach Neil Jordan: "I am more solid from the tee onto the green. You have to be careful out there, and dont take unnecessary chances." The pair led a group of four which finished at 4 under, including Wales Rhys Davies, Englands Richard Finch and Mattew Baldwin, and American Berry Henson. Defending champion Joost Luiten from the Netherlands hit three birdies in his opening four holes. Later, however, he struggled to hit the fairways and dropped to 1 over before finishing his round level par with his fourth birdie on the 17th. Miguel Angel Jimenez overcame three bogeys in the first eight holes to card a 2-under 70. The 50-year-old Spaniard, who resides in Vienna since marrying an Austrian in May, is seeking his third win of the season. Starting on the back nine, he bogeyed the par-4 11th and 17th and the par-3 14th but recovered with four birdies. "Its OK, its under par," Jimenez said. "Its not easy because of the wind."

Kyle Anderson Jersey . -- ETwaun Moore had 14 points in 30 minutes, and the Orlando Magic defeated the Detroit Pistons 87-86 on Sunday night.PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh spent four games last June futilely flailing away at Tuukka Rask as the Boston goalie shoved the Penguins out of the Eastern Conference finals one remarkable save at a time. Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. "To get chances and capitalize on them is huge. Thats a big building block for us." Sutter and Jussi Jokinen scored 6:58 apart in the third period and the Penguins held on. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 21 shots for Pittsburgh, including a sliding save on David Krejci just before the final horn. Chris Kunitz picked up his sixth goal of the season for the Penguins while Sidney Crosbys assist pushed his points total to an NHL-high 21. "We played the right way and we were the better team tonight," Jokinen said. "It kind of felt like a playoff game, a little bit those same matchups like last spring. Lots of hitting, lots of battles." Battles the Penguins won. Then again, thats what happens this time of year. Pittsburgh is 9-1 in its last 10 regular-season games against Boston. Patrice Bergeron and Jarome Iginla scored for the Bruins. Rask finished with 28 saves, but couldnt stop Boston from dropping a road game for the first time this season. "We didnt play to our identity," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "We didnt play a heavy game for two periods tonight. We had to play three periods like we did in the third and that wasnt the case." The meeting between the teams was the first since Bostons emphatic four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference finals, when the Bruins suffocated the NHLs highest scoring team into submission. The Penguins scored only twice in nearly 14 periods of hockey and never led at any point, undone by Bostons defence and a near flawless performance by Rask, who stopped 134 of 136 shots in the series. Nearly five months later, little has changed. "I think the intensity and the atmosphere, not quite sure it was April and May and June, but it waas certainly a good night for a Wednesday night rivalry game in October," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said.dddddddddddd Kunitz gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead in the second period when he collected a shot from teammate Kris Letang with his chest then backhanded by Rask with his back to the net. The power-play goal was the fifth given up by the Bruins in their last seven penalty kills. Bergeron tied it 1:05 into the third period with a tricky deflection between his legs over Fleurys shoulder. The fun was just starting. Sutter took a pass from Pascal Dupuis and raced in on Rask, wristing a shot over the goalies shoulder for his first regular-season goal since April. "He leaned on it and I went down and then he shot it," Rask said. "I told him good shot." Jokinen followed with 3:02 remaining when he forced a turnover high in Bostons zone and broke in on Rask, using a screen to whisk the puck past Rasks stick for his sixth goal. The Penguins ended up needing the cushion. Iginlas slap shot from the point zipped by Fleury with 1:43 left and Boston spent the final 90 seconds buzzing the Pittsburgh net but couldnt tie it up. "We didnt give too many chances but we couldnt stop them," Rask said. "Thats just about it. Weve got to stop giving up these third-period goals." The injury riddled Penguins have tweaked their formula a bit since June, trying to play a bit more responsibly on their end of the ice while still relying on Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to carry the offence. Bostons roster underwent a slightly more aggressive overhaul, including the signing of Iginla. He spent two months with the Penguins last spring in search of his first Stanley Cup title after more than 15 years in Calgary. He had five goals and six assists in 13 regular-season games with Pittsburgh and had four more goals in the playoffs but disappeared against the Bruins, though he was hardly alone. Iginlas return barely caused a stir. There was no video tribute or hand from the crowd. Only when he was knocked to the ice by Malkin and Kris Letang to end the first period -- and again dropped by Malkin in the second -- did a faint level of disapproval arise. ' ' '
