That’s why I was just spotting up and let the others perform.Romeo, however, said that if the Batang Pier needs him, he will have no second thoughts of taking over,“If I see that they need me, I’ll get the ball and make plays. I saw that they can sustain so the credit goes to our coaches and my teammates.”Sitting at solo third with a 5-3 card, Romeo doesn’t want GlobalPort to be satisfied with its standing with the chance to get into the top two, which comes with a twice-to-beat incentive in the quarterfinals, still up for grabs.“We have to forget that we won today. It’s not a disrespect to NLEX, but our goal has to be making it to number one or number two. We need to set a goal that we can beat San Miguel so our confidence will go higher and believe that we can beat all teams in the PBA.”ADVERTISEMENT GlobalPort face San Miguel next Saturday at Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netAs dominant as GlobalPort’s 110-96 win over NLEX was on Friday, Terrence Romeo believes the real gauge on how fan the Batang Pier will go is their out-of-town duel against San Miguel next Saturday in Cebu.“My basis will be our game against San Miguel because that’s the champion team. We can base there if we can fare with them or we don’t have a chance. At least against them, we can feel how a champion team plays.

Rookie Marek Svatos scored his 27th goal of the season, best in the Western Conference, to help Colorado match its longest winning streak since Oct. 10-28, 2000. The Maple Leafs lost their third straight. Islanders 2, Blackhawks 1 (OT ): Oleg Kvasha beat goalie Adam Munro off a rebound at 3:02 of overtime, and Rick DiPietro made 34 saves as New York edged Chicago. Hurricanes 4, Flyers 3 (SO): Erik Cole scored on a breakaway with 3:58 left in regulation, and after a scoreless overtime, Rod Brind’Amour scored in the fourth round of a shootout to lift Carolina to its eighth straight victory. “Every time you pass somebody who made history in hockey, you’ve got to feel pretty good about yourself,” Brodeur said. “I’ve got a lot of accomplishments. If I keep winning and I keep going forward and being focused on what I need to do they’ll be there for me, so that’s nice.” Brodeur has 424 victories to pass Esposito on a career list for the second time this month. The New Jersey star recorded his 77th career shutout Jan. 9 against Philadelphia, good for seventh on that list. Martin Brodeur climbed another rung on the victory list, even if he wasn’t his usual dominant self. After surrendering a three-goal lead, Brodeur finished strong to break a tie with Hall of Famer Tony Esposito for fifth place on the NHL’s career victory list in the New Jersey Devils’ 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night. Brodeur made 14 of his 26 saves in the third period. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
