Klinsmann for a comment earlier this week about Bradley

TORONTO - Toronto FC star midfielder Michael Bradley has found himself in the middle of a remarkable war of words between U.S. national team coach Juergen Klinsmann and MLS commissioner Don Garber. Garber held a media conference call Wednesday to chastise Klinsmann for a comment earlier this week about Bradley, who left Roma for Toronto this season, and Seattle Sounders striker Clint Dempsey, who quit Tottenham for MLS. It’s going to be very difficult to keep the same level that they experienced at the places where they were, Klinsmann said Monday. Its just reality. Its just being honest. The U.S. coach also said Bradley, after a frustrating season in Toronto that seems destined to end before the playoffs begin, has to prove that he hasnt lost a bit. Garber said such comments were plain wrong, not to mention detrimental to the league and the athletes. And he tore a strip off Klinsmann for using such a public platform. Were dealing with young professional athletes, said Garber, who went on the offensive Wednesday. I dont know what possibly could have motivated Juergen to so publicly criticize Michael Bradley and ultimately Clint. It is concerning to me that it seems to be following a pattern that began with his criticism of Landon (Donovan). The 32-year-old Donovan, the career scoring leader for the national team and MLS, was cut by Klinsmann in May in advance of a fourth World Cup. I believe that Landon should have been in Brazil, not because he earned it or deserved it, but because his performance dictated it, Garber said. And if anybody disagrees with that, and some of you might — clearly Juergen does — then I believe that his treatment was inexcusable. And I have concerns that his criticism particularly of Michael is following that same pattern. Garber said Klinsmanns comments about MLS were incorrect and incredibly damaging to the league as well as at odds with what MLS and U.S. Soccer were trying to achieve together. Klinsmann is also technical director of U.S. Soccer. For him to publicly state issues that he has with Major League Soccer, in my view is not something that is going to allow him to effectively serve the role as not just coach but as technical director, Garber said. I am in no way saying what Sunil (Gulati, president of the U.S. Soccer Federation) should be doing with Juergen as it relates with his employment. That is between Sunil and Juergen. I think hes done a great job with the national team. I think he needs to think very, very hard about how he manages himself publicly and how he deals with his view as to how he should motivate players that are playing in our league. Ten members of the U.S. World Cup squad this summer play in MLS, with another five having started in the North American league, the commissioner noted. Sending a negative message to any player, and obviously to U.S. players, that signing with Major League Soccer is not going to be good for their career or good for their form is incredibly detrimental to Major League Soccer, said Garber. He pointed to Seattle defender DeAndre Yedlins upcoming move to Spurs as proof that playing in the North American league does not negatively impact form. Garber said MLS franchises in both the U.S. and Canada were developing homegrown talent for their national teams. As such, Garber said having the U.S. coach not on board is frustrating as hell. Klinsmann, a former star striker who coached Germany, called Bradleys decision to leave Roma, which is playing Champions League football, for Toronto a huge disappointment. Bradley, speaking to ESPN FC, disagreed with Klinsmann that players need to be in Europes elite leagues. You can be in a fantastic environment but if you dont put everything into it and think youve already made it or that theres no need for extra work, you have no chance, Bradley said prior to the U.S. game against Honduras on Tuesday in Boca Raton, Fla. On the flip side, you can be in what some would call a less-than-ideal environment, but if your hunger and determination and drive push you to walk on the field every day ready to do everything possible to compete, help the guys around you and be a better leader, youll improve. Garber said Bradley, who has won 91 caps for the U.S., would not have come back to MLS if he did not believe that it was in is competitive best interest to do so. And I could assure you that Clint Dempsey feels that way. And nobody was saying that Major League Soccer was unworthy when Clint scored two great goals including a game-changing goal against Ghana in the Word Cup. Garber said he had sent a very strongly worded letter to Gulati, adding some MLS board members had done the same unsolicited. He also said he had written to Klinsmann but had yet to speak to him. Garber declined to say whether Toronto and Seattle had complained to U.S. Soccer. Toronto FC did not immediately respond to a question about whether they had complained about Klinsmanns comments. Asked Tuesday about Klinsmanns comments, Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney shook his head. Teemu Selanne Jersey .

NEW YORK -- This win was three years in the making for backup goalie Ray Emery and the rest of the Philadelphia Flyers. Emery stood in again for injured No. 1 netminder Steve Mason and made 31 saves to help the Flyers rally from an early two-goal deficit and beat the New York Rangers 4-2 on Sunday to even the first-round playoff series. The Flyers had lost nine straight at Madison Square Garden, including 4-1 in the series opener on Thursday, since their last win there on Feb. 20, 2011. Emery hadnt won a post-season game anywhere in exactly three years for Anaheim at Nashville. "I try to stay even-keeled, whether its going well or you dont get off to the start you want," the 31-year-old Emery said. "I play with a system in there, and I just kind of rely on that. Ive had leads before and Ive been down before so its just kind of a consistent approach." Luke Schenn scored the go-ahead goal in the second period after Jakub Voracek and Jason Akeson got the Flyers even at 2. Wayne Simmonds sealed the win with a power-play, empty-net goal. Now the Flyers head home, where they went 2-0 against the Rangers in the regular season. Game 3 is on Tuesday. Philadelphia no longer has to hear about its skid in New York in which the Flyers were outscored 35-10 and never had more than two goals in any game. "Thats a huge weight off our shoulders, to come in here and get the split," Schenn said. "Going back home, we feel a bit better about ourselves." Voracek brought the Flyers within 2-1 in the first after Martin St. Louis and Benoit Pouliot staked New York to its lead. Emery did the rest, looking especially sharp in the second and third periods. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots after a 14-save winning effort in the opener. "They came back pretty strong late in the first, and then in the second period a lot better," Lundqvist said. "Going into the third we felt confident we could tie it. The tide turned in the second when the Flyers caught up and went ahead despite being outshot 17-9. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault called that period his teams best of the day. "The game can be funny sometimes," he said. "We had some Grade A chances. Our power play had some great looks. They scored two and we didnt." Akeson tied it with a power-play goal 5:45 in off a rebound of Brayden Schenns shot for his second career NHL tally. It was a day of redemption for the 23-year-old Akeson, plaaying his fourth NHL game.dddddddddddd His double high-sticking penalty in Game 1 led to two Rangers goals that turned a 1-1 game into a 3-1 deficit in the third. Flyers coach Craig Berube didnt consider benching him for Game 2. "Should I sit out everybody that takes a penalty?" Berube asked. "I understand he took a four-minute penalty, but he played well. It was a mistake, and you have to learn from them. Hes a good player." Philadelphia grabbed its second lead of the series with 8:42 left in the second during a delayed penalty. Michael Raffl brought the puck in on the right side and got it to Adam Hall for a shot. Luke Schenn then put in the rebound. The Rangers chance for a comeback was thwarted by a penalty for too many men with 1:18 left that led to Simmonds goal with 25.4 seconds remaining. Unlike in Game 1, the Flyers had the puck much more often and did a better job of closing off the Rangers passing lanes after the early deficit. However, they continued their undisciplined ways that cost them in the opener. The Flyers killed their first penalty after Simmonds held Ryan McDonagh in the offensive zone at 1:04, but they allowed one power-play goal and were short-handed three times in the first. Overall, the Flyers killed five of six power plays. New York took a 1-0 lead at 4:08 after a crisp passing sequence. Rick Nash came in with speed on the left side and moved the puck into the middle to Derek Stepan, who sent a pass into the right circle to St. Louis for a one-timer he punctuated with a fist pump. St. Louis, who had only one goal and seven assists with the Rangers in 19 regular-season games after being acquired from Tampa Bay, scored at the Garden for the first time since the trade for former captain Ryan Callahan. St. Louis has a goal and two assists in this series. The Rangers made it 2-0 at 8:22 with their third power-play goal in two games. More precision passing in the Philadelphia end by Mats Zuccarello and Derick Brassard set up another one-timer from the right side, this time by Pouliot, who got enough of the puck to put it past Emery. The Flyers got one back on a strong move by Voracek, who skated around defenceman Ryan McDonagh on the backhand and tucked in a forehand with 5:46 left. NOTES: Emery is 21-16 in career playoff games. ... Akesons only other goal was scored April 23, 2013, at Ottawa. ... The Rangers had two potential power plays negated by embellishment calls. ' ' '
