PARIS -- The closest thing to intrigue or drama involving Rafael Nadal on Saturday came after his 31st consecutive French Open victory concluded. Thats when the eight-time champion revealed that a painful back is slowing his serves -- and, all in all, giving him more trouble than his opponents so far. For now, leave the on-court theatrics to others. Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, for example, was clutching at aching hamstrings while being taken to 7-all in the fifth set by No. 28 Philipp Kohlschreiber before their third-round match was suspended for fading light. No. 23 Gael Monfils acknowledged tanking a set en route to a 5-7, 6-2, 6-4, 0-6, 6-2 victory over No. 14 Fabio Fognini, who was docked a point for chucking his racket near a ball boy. "They make a good show for the crowd," Nadal said. "Long match. Crowd involved. Good for tennis." Well, aside from the fact that Monfils and Fognini combined for more than twice as many unforced errors, 137, as winners, 66. Nadals play was much, much cleaner: During the entire course of his 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 win against 65th-ranked Leonardo Mayer of Argentina, the No. 1-seeded Spaniard made 10 unforced errors -- two in the first set, three in the second, five in the third. Hes dropped a total of 19 games through three matches. More worrisome would be his back, which also acted up in January during a loss to Stan Wawrinka in the Australian Open final. "During my career, I had (a) few problems. ... Hopefully will not be (the) case" the rest of the way in Paris, Nadal said. Against Mayer, Nadal averaged only 102 mph (165 kph) on first serves, with a top speed of 114 mph (184 kph). That was down from an average of 111 mph (179 kph) and top of 122 mph (197 kph) in the first round last Monday. Through two matches, Nadal faced five break points and lost serve twice. He dealt with eight break points Saturday, losing two. The last time Nadal won 31 matches in a row in Paris, he failed to get No. 32, losing in the fourth round in 2009 to Robin Soderling -- a defeat that later was blamed, in part, on injured knees. That remains the Spaniards lone setback in 63 matches at the tournament. Next for Nadal is 83rd-ranked Dusan Lajovic of Serbia, who beat Jack Sock of the United States 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. Another American, Donald Young, lost in five sets to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain, leaving No. 10 John Isner as the last U.S. man. Before this French Open, Lajovic had a 10-21 career record in tour-level matches, never winning two in a row. "I saw him play a few times on TV. Sure, its great to have new players on tour, young players on the tour that are coming strong. Hopefully not too strong," Nadal said with a smile. "Well see on Monday. I hope to be ready." Asked whether he would seek advice from another Serbian, No. 2 Novak Djokovic, before facing Nadal, Lajovic joked: "Yeah, I will try to ask everybody (for) some tips." That wont help if Nadal produces shots of the sort he did when Mayer served at 5-all in the second set -- a stretching, scooping backhand lob to break. As Mayer watched the shot sail overhead, he waved his left hand to signal to the ball to go out, then rolled his eyes when it curled in. Nadal pumped his fist, ahead 6-5 and on his way to reaching the fourth round for the 10th time in 10 French Opens. Monfils will take on Garcia-Lopez for a quarterfinal berth. Whoever emerges from Murray-Kohlschreiber meets the winner of another suspended match scheduled to resume Sunday: No. 24 Fernando Verdasco led No. 12 Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-2, 2-2. Womens fourth-round matchups set up Saturday were No. 4 Simona Halep against No. 15 Sloane Stephens, 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova against Lucie Safavora, 2012 runner-up Sara Errani against Jelena Jankovic, and Andrea Petkovic against 148th-ranked qualifier Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. As the sun came out and the temperature topped 70 degrees (20 Celsius) after several days of overcast skies and occasional rain, Stephens eliminated No. 22 Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-3, 6-4, while Halep beat 55th-ranked Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor of Spain 6-3, 6-0. Halep is the highest seeded woman left, following losses by No. 1 Serena Williams, No. 2 Li Na and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska. Said Halep: "Thats a surprise for everyone." Marcos Rojo Jersey . However, the intensity and physicality that has characterized the postseason so far has caught Gretzky by surprise. "Its a little bit risqué right now," Gretzky told Philadelphia radio station 97.

PAUL, Minn.DETROIT -- With his team down by a goal after two periods, Philadelphia Flyers coach Craig Berube had a message for his team. "Stay out of the penalty box," Berube said he told his players between the second and third periods. Apparently, they listened. Sean Couturier had two goal and two assists and the Philadelphia Flyers scored four goals in third period to rally for a 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. "I liked our game (after two periods), we were playing a good game," Berube said. "You cant go in the box three or four times period and give them 5-on-3s." The Flyers took five penalties and surrendered a 5-on-3 power-play goal in the second. Couturier got the winner at 8:28 of the third period by tipping in a shot. "Its (his big night) good for the confidence. But this was a team game and team success," Couturier said. "All four lines were rolling. We just wanted to get some chances and capitalize on some chances." Couturiers line had a big night as his linemates, Scott Hartnell and Matt Read, each had a goal and two assists. "They just keep plugging along and doing the right things," Berube said about the group. "They keep back-checking and that puts them in the right position for offence." Steve Downie and Claude Giroux had a goal and an assist each for Philadelphia. Steve Mason stopped 32 shots. Philadelphia finished 3 for 3 on the power play. Tomas Tatar scored twice and centre Johan Franzen also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard made 28 saves. "In the end I thought we had things going pretty good for ourselves through two. The third period wasnt good enough, they were better than us," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "They were better than us because they lit us up on the power play." Giroux tied it at 3, with a power-play goal 5:15 into the third period. He got his fifth goal, on a shot from the top of the left circle. Hartnell maade it 5-3 with a power-play goal 9:58 into the third for his sixth goal.dddddddddddd Couturier added an empty-net goal in the last minute. Read scored from the front of the net with 3:22 remaining in the second to pull the Flyers within 3-2. It was his ninth goal. Detroit scored twice in less than two minutes in the middle of the second period to go up 3-1. Franzen beat Mason with a slap shot from the top of the left circle off the rush to break a tie at 8:24. It was Franzens eighth goal. Tatar got his second goal of the game on a 5-on-3 power play by putting in a loose puck from a goal-mouth scramble with 9:47 left in the middle period. It was Tatars fifth goal. The Red Wings Justin Abdelkader hit the post on a partial breakaway with 1:32 left in the first. Tatars first goal of the game opened the scoring with 9:43 left in the opening period on a one-time shot from the bottom of the left circle. Downies power-play goal tied it with 6:12 remaining in the first period. He beat Howard with a wrist shot from the inside edge of the right circle. It was Downies second goal. NOTE: The Red Wings were without both of their star centres, Pavel Datsyuk and captain Henrik Zetterberg.
