MANCHESTER, England -- Its some feat to turn one of the worlds most storied and valuable sports brands into a mere also-ran in the space of 10 months. Thats what David Moyes managed to achieve at Manchester United -- and there was only going to be one outcome. Overwhelmed by the giant task of replacing Alex Ferguson, Britains greatest ever manager, Moyes was fired by United on Tuesday after exhausting the patience and losing the support of the clubs American owners, the Glazer family. The 50-year-old Scot was less than a season into a six-year contract but the Glazers had seen enough. So, too, had most of Uniteds fans and most likely its slew of big sponsors, with the team languishing in seventh place in the Premier League and guaranteed to miss out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 19 years. Thats unacceptable for a club that expects to win trophies year in and year out. Exactly a year after clinching a record-extending 20th English championship, United dismissed Moyes during a meeting at its training ground in the morning. The news was released in a terse, two-line statement on the clubs website -- a far cry from the fanfare of Moyes hiring last summer. "Manchester United has announced that David Moyes has left the club," the statement said. "The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role." In the 27-year, trophy-laden tenure of Ferguson, United stood out as a pillar of stability, continuity and patience. No more. Moyes, hand-picked by Ferguson, was unable to replicate the success of his countryman or even come close. Ryan Giggs, a club great who was on Moyes coaching staff and is still a member of the playing squad at the age of 40, will take temporary control until a permanent replacement is found. The 40-year-old Welsh midfielder, who came up through the United youth ranks alongside David Beckham, has spent 23 years at Old Trafford. He has won every trophy in the game at club level, making him Uniteds most decorated player. Louis van Gaal, who will leave his position as Netherlands coach after the World Cup in Brazil and has previously coached Barcelona and Bayern Munich, is the favourite to succeed Moyes on a full-time basis. A person with knowledge of the situation at United said the club would be seeking an experienced manager and a short list was being put together with a view toward an appointment being made quickly. Giggs was not being considered for the full-time position. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the club was yet to announce the moves. A surprise choice to many because of his lack of top-level experience, Moyes was hired by United after 11 relatively successful years at fellow Premier League team Everton. He failed to cope with the enormity of taking one of the most coveted jobs in the sport. United is 23 points behind leader Liverpool and has slumped to a string of humiliating losses, including home and away to fierce rivals Liverpool and Manchester City. Moyes hoped hed be given at least a second season to turn things around, just as Ferguson was given time after a slow start to his reign. "Its surprising because its not a habit of Manchester United to do things this way," Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. "At Man United, after so many years of Sir Alex, its a little surprising." Moyes has been under pressure for months but guiding United to the quarterfinals of the Champions League -- squeezing past Greek outsider Olympiakos in the last 16 -- earned him some breathing space. His future was placed in serious doubt, however, after Sundays lacklustre 2-0 loss at Everton, which ensured that Englands biggest club over the last two decades wouldnt be in next seasons Champions League. "There is no disguising that the football this season has been poor, the results have been poor," said former United defender Gary Neville, whose younger brother Phil was an assistant manager to Moyes. "The performances have got worse and worse." United has lost a club-record 11 times in the league and 10 times in 22 matches in all competitions in 2014. Worse for Moyes, there has been no discernible improvement in the level of performance, with his chances not helped by the absence of leading striker Robin van Persie for large chunks of the season through injury. The deposed champions appear ready to spend considerable sums over the summer to strengthen an aging squad. But the Glazers were not willing to trust Moyes to oversee such heavy spending. United is one of the sports worlds most lucrative brands -- it brought in 363.2 million pounds ($610 million) in revenue last season -- but the lack of Champions League action next season will dent income streams. The Glazers likely would have been concerned that next seasons exile from Europes top club competition may have dragged on for years at a time when player costs are high and interest payments on the clubs debts are a real burden. Big United sponsors, such as Nike, may have become restless. "Clearly Nike and other sponsors are paying for one of the best and most recognized football brands in the world -- not one that cannot even make the Champions League," said Louise Cooper, an independent financial analyst in London. "The financials ensured that Moyes was not given the time to perform." Investors appeared to welcome the news, sending Uniteds share price up 5 per cent in early New York trading to $18.60 -- the highest level since the final days of Fergusons reign. Such is Uniteds decline that the worlds top players are unlikely to want to move to Old Trafford without the pull of the Champions League. With four matches left in the Premier League, qualification for the second-tier Europa League is also looking unlikely. Giggs has long been regarded as a future United manager, having established himself among Uniteds greats by winning 13 Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Champions Leagues, one UEFA Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and a Club World Cup as a player. United denied reports last month that Van Gaal met with a member of the Glazer family, but the Dutchman will be free in the summer. He has the experience of coaching at big clubs that Moyes lacked, having been in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax in a 23-year managerial career. Mason Rudolph Jersey .

Tokarski, a somewhat controversial choice -- with his 10 games of NHL experience and all -- to replace an injured Carey Price in Game Two had a night to remember, turning back a Rangers team that was dominating play from the get-go, outshooting the Canadiens 14-4 in the first period and 37-25 overall.

They signed their first kicker. Ottawa inked Nick Setta, a 32-year-old native of Lockport, Illinois, to a contract.VANCOUVER - A night that started with a tribute to Daniel Sedin ended with the fourth line stealing the show.Jannik Hansen scored the first hat trick of his career and Bo Horvat and Derek Dorsett combined for five assists Sunday as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackawks 4-1.Radim Vrbata had the other goal and Ryan Miller made 24 saves as Vancouver (14-6-1) celebrated Sedins 1,000th NHL game with a hard-fought victory.We wanted to get the win for him. Its a measuring stick. Chicago is a very good team, said Hansen. We just dont want to be satisfied with winning a game here and there. We want to be the team that other teams are chasing.Hansen, who now has eight goals on the season and five in the last three games, snapped a 1-1 tie at 6:24 of the third, deflecting a Dorsett shot from the boards into the top corner.We strive this year to make it a four-line team. Its not a matter of one, two, three (or) four, said Hansen. Everyone knows the (Sedin) twins are going to get their matchup every night.After that its up to the nine other guys to supply the secondary scoring. As long as we can do that weve got a chance to win games.Horvat finished with the first three assists of his NHL career, while Dorsett chipped in with two of his own for Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins, who appears to have found a fourth line he can trust — something that predecessor John Tortorella could not last season.Bos been real good in the faceoff circle. They start with the puck lots of times. I think that makes a difference. They play smart. They dont complicate it, said Dejardins. Jannik had a great game going to the net and when you go to the net good things can happen.Horvat, who finished 13 for 16 on faceoffs, continued to make a strong case to stay with the Canucks instead of going back to junior.Were pretty confident as a line that we can go out there against some tough guys and some tough players, said Horvat, who played his eighth NHL game on Sunday. The more I play and the better I play, the harder the decision is going to be on them. Hopefully Im making it tough.Horvat beat Jonathan Toews, a player he tried to emulate as a youngster, on one of those draws in the moments leading up to Hansens winner.Believe it or not thats my idol, Horvat said with a smile. Thats the guy I wanted to model my game after and thats the guy I watched growing up playing in the NHL. To take a faceoff against him a couple times and to be on the same sheet of ice as him, its pretty cool.Dorsett said the 19-year-old centre who scored his first goal in Thursdays shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks has impressed as he approaches the critical ninth NHL game for junior-age players trying to stick.The way (Horvat) carries himself on and off the ice is like hes a 10-year vet, said Dorsett. Hes a nice kid, he wants to learn and thats all you can ask for.Id be happy to play with him the rest of the year.Kris Versteeg had the only goal for Chicago (12-8-1), which got 26 savess from Cory Crawford.ddddddddddddThey played well, they played hard, said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, whose team came in having given up a league-low eight goals in the third period. They had a real purpose to the way they played.Chicago had a power play with about eight minutes left in the third, but Vancouvers penalty kill was up to the task. The Blackhawks, playing their second of a back-to-back and third game in four nights, pressed for the tie late, but were caught out on a rush when Vrbata scored his 10th of the season at 17:36.We rolled four lines, we were fresh, we did all the little things that we had to do be successful and everyones buying in, said Daniel Sedin, who was honoured in a pre-game ceremony. Thats a lot of fun when you can do that. No one feels the pressure to score each and every game, but everyone knows they can do it. Its a great feeling.Hansen, who had 11 goals all of last season, then won a race for the puck and scored into an empty net with 42 seconds left to add the exclamation point.Its been a while. I think it was back when I was playing in Denmark, Hansen said of the last time he recorded a hat trick. Its extremely nice to get it (but) its not one of those things I have on my bucket list.The Blackhawks came in having won three straight — including Saturdays 7-1 thrashing of the Edmonton Oilers — and five of their last six, but were down 1-0 after the first period before starting to impose their will as the second wore on.Versteeg, who came in with two goals and four assists in his last three games, scored his seventh of the season to tie things at 7:55 on the power play, deflecting home a point shot from Duncan Keith.The Canucks had a great chance to restore the lead on a man advantage of their own later in the period, but Crawford robbed Henrik Sedin with the heel of his skate.Theyve had a good start to the season, said Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane. It seems like a lot of their guys are re-energized, motivated, they get good goaltending and theyve had solid contributions from everyone. You look at their so-called third or fourth line tonight and they had three goals.Vancouver opened the scoring at 13:13 of the first on the power play when Dorsetts pass glanced off Horvats stick right to Hansen, who scored over Crawfords blocker.Confidence is a funny thing, said Hansen. Once the puck goes in you feel like every shot you take might have a chance.Notes: Henrik Sedin played his 1,000th game with Vancouver in March. ...
