LAS VEGAS -- Canelo Alvarez chased Erislandy Lara far too long Saturday night to pay much attention afterward to Laras complaint that he won their fight. "You dont win by running, you win by hitting," Alvarez said. "You dont win a fight like that." Lara thought he had done just that, but when the decision came down it was Alvarez whose hand was held aloft. He escaped with a split decision win for his second straight victory since losing last year to Floyd Mayweather Jr. It was a frustrating night for Alvarez, and a tense one for his fans, who filled the MGM Grand arena to watch as Alvarez chased after Lara for 12 rounds before winning the decision. "I wanted to leave a good taste in the mouth of my fans. I came to fight," Alvarez said. "He came to run." Alvarez had all he could handle against Lara, whose constant movement frustrated the Mexican fighter and often caused him to miss wildly with right hands. In the end, Alvarez won on two scorecards, 115-113 and 117-111, to pull out a narrow decision. The third judge had Lara ahead 115-113, while The Associated Press scored the fight 114-114. "Everyone knows i won the fight, no matter what they say," Lara said. "I didnt respect him before the fight and that hasnt changed. I dont respect him now." Alvarez was favoured against Lara, who left his native Cuba to come to the U.S. and fight as a pro. But Lara provided a stiff test in a fight that was up for grabs in the late rounds. Lara raised his hands in victory as the final bell sounded, certain he had done enough to win. A few minutes later, he leaned on the ropes, staring out in disbelief as the decision was announced. Punch stats reflected how close the fight was, and how few punches were actually landed. Alvarez was credited with landing 97 of 415 punches, while Lara landed 107 of 386. "It was a difficult, tough fight, the way everybody expected it to be," said Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez. "Youre always worried about a boxer who was literally running, literally running." Alvarez acknowledged before the bout that fighting someone with a style like Laras was risky. Alvarez could not find Mayweather when he moved in their fight last year, and he had almost as much trouble cornering Lara in a fight where no title was at stake but one that was dangerous for both competitors. Lara was a moving target from the opening bell, going sideways and backward, content to let Alvarez chase him. The strategy worked early on as Alvarez had trouble cutting off the ring and often threw wild right hands that caught nothing but air. By the fourth round, Alvarez (44-1-1) began to have more success finding his elusive opponent. He was relentless in pressuring Lara, who was content to move about the ring, stopping occasionally to throw a right hand followed by a left. The heavily pro-Alvarez crowd of 14,239 at the MGM Grand began growing frustrated with the action midway through the fight, booing Lara for refusing to stand and trade punches with the Mexican favourite. Lara was cut on the right eye in the seventh round by a left uppercut, and spent much of the later rounds wiping blood from his eye. He kept moving, though, and Alvarez kept chasing him, drawing huge roars from the crowd on the few occasions he managed to trap him on the ropes. Lara (19-2-2) kept frustrating Alvarez through the end of the fight, winning some late rounds as he landed counter left hands after first making Alvarez miss with his right. Lara, who fled Cuba to begin a pro career, came into the fight with only one loss -- and it was a disputed one. Most in boxing considered him the equal of Alvarez, though he is relatively unknown compared to the Mexican star who fought Mayweather last year in boxings richest fight ever. Lara got the fight after calling Alvarez out, despite worries by promoter Oscar De La Hoya that the Cubans southpaw style would be difficult for Alvarez, who struggled against Mayweather in his only loss. Lara holds a piece of the 154-pound title, though it was not at stake in the fight, which was fought at 155 pounds. . "Hopefully well get all this out of the way," he said, "and everyone will be healthy the rest of the year." Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and is expected to miss between four to six weeks.

The Penguins and Wild have been two of the leagues better teams in 2014-15, with Pittsburgh posting a 7-2-1 record so far and Minnesota entering Tuesday with a 7-3-0 mark. Pittsburgh is currently riding a four-game winning streak, and the Wild have come out on top in three straight and five of their last six outings. Pittsburgh has been firing on all cylinders lately, having outscored the opposition by a 19-3 margin over the last four games. Pens goaltender Marc- Andre Fleury also has posted his first three shutouts of the season during the span and is now tied with Minnesotas Darcy Kuemper for the league lead. Fleury only needed to stop 18 shots for the shutout in Saturdays 5-0 rout of the visiting Buffalo Sabres. As a team, I think weve been pretty solid and not giving up much, said Fleury. Fleury could start in net tonight, but he has never beaten the Wild in his career, going 0-5-0 with a 3.74 goals against average versus Minnesota. Chris Kunitz scored twice and notched an assist in Saturdays easy win and has four goals and seven points over his last three games. Evgeni Malkin finished with a goal and two assists, Blake Comeau and Patric Hornqvist also scored and Sidney Crosby supplied three assists for Pittsburgh. Crosby was named the NHLs Second Star of the Month for October, and he is leading the league with 18 points on seven goals and 11 asssists.dddddddddddd Pittsburgh is opening a five-game road trip tonight and is 2-0-1 as the guest this season. The Wild posted their third straight win Saturday against visiting Dallas, with Kuemper making 19 saves in the 4-1 victory over the Stars. Minnesota failed to score on its first power play of the game, moving them to 0-for-28 on the season. But Thomas Vanek scored at 19:03 of the second period with Jamie Benn off for holding to end the drought and pick up his first goal with Minnesota. The Wild had been the only team without a power-play goal entering Saturday, but went 2-for-4 on the man advantage. Nino Niederreiter scored 5:03 into the third period with Benn off for slashing, giving the Wild their 4-1 lead. It was a good feeling to kind of get the monkey off our back, said Wild defenseman Matt Dumba. I dont think we were feeling it that much. We were just sticking with our game. We knew it was going to come eventually. It was just one of those things where we werent getting the bounces but hopefully now we can get it going. Mikael Granlund and Matt Dumba also scored for the Wild, who are aiming for their first four-game winning streak since April 5-10 of last season. Minnesota has gotten the better of the Pens over the years, going 10-4-0 with a tie in the 15 all-time meetings between the clubs. The Wild have claimed five of the last seven encounters overall and two of the past three tests in St. Paul. Former Penguins forward Matt Cooke is expected to miss tonights game with a lower-body injury.
