MONTREAL -- FC Edmonton had its first Amway Canadian Championship final within its grasp. But then it all slipped away. Edmonton was winning on aggregate after 90 minutes of play on Wednesday, even though the Montreal Impact were winning the match 3-2. But Patrice Bernier scored late in stoppage time on a penalty kick to give Montreal its second consecutive Amway Canadian Championship final berth. "Its sickening," said Frank Jonke, who scored the games two goals for Edmonton three minutes apart in the second half. "It leaves a sick feeling in everybodys stomach on our team. To lose, to not go through on that, is very sickening for us." Having lost the first leg of the home-and-home series 2-1 in Edmonton last week, the Impact needed a two-goal victory for a spot in the next round. Berniers goal five minutes into stoppage time, effectively the last kick of the game, gave Montreal the 5-4 victory on aggregate over the Eddies. In the dying minutes of added time, Montreals Heath Pearce fired a shot into a crowd of Edmonton defenders in the box. Referee Drew Fischer blew his whistle for handball, ran over to Edmontons Kareem Moses, and then pointed to the penalty spot. "I dont think it was a handball," said Jonke. "I dont think it was a penalty, and I think we should be going through." Edmonton coach Colin Miller also thought his team was robbed. "(Two Edmonton players) saw one of our players with his hands behind his back. And the ball hit him here," said Miller, pointing to his shoulder. "The referee then went to the wrong player to tell him it hit him." Miller was livid with Fischer after the game, and confronted the official as he was leaving the pitch. "Our players in the second half didnt deserve to get beaten in the manner that they did," said Miller. "I had a go at the referee after the game, and rightly so. The job that we do as coaches is hard enough without that decision being made." Impact president Joey Saputo then jumped onto the field and got into a screaming match with Miller. "I wished him a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" quipped the Edmonton coach. "Im sure Mr. Saputo will buy me a Guinness afterwards." With the win, Montreal (1-0-1) will play either Toronto FC or the Vancouver Whitecaps in the two-leg final on May 28 and June 4. The winner will advance to the CONCACAF Champions League. The Impact went up 3-0 on Wednesday on two first-half goals by Jack McInerney and a 47th minute strike by Jeb Brovsky. Montreal was all but assured victory before Edmonton clawed back in the second half. Jonke scored his first goal in the 67th minute when his shot from just outside the six-yard box deflected off an Impact defender and beat goalie Evan Bush. The Edmonton striker added what would have been the series-clincher three minutes later from the penalty spot, firing right down the middle for his second of the game. The Eddies were awarded a penalty after Impact defender Karl Ouimette took down Neil Hlavaty in the box. Jonkes goals were the first conceded by the Impact at Saputo Stadium in four Canadian Championship matches dating back to 2012 when the team joined MLS. "The game should have been 5-0," said Impact coach Frank Klopas. "It should have been over. It was a lack of concentration. In five minutes, the game changed. We should have never been in this situation. We crumbled. Our mentality has to be stronger." If not for Berniers stoppage-time goal from the spot, the Eddies would have progressed to the next round. "Some guys took their foot off the gas pedal, and we let them right back into it," said McInerney. "We were fortunate to get a goal at the end. Its about time something goes our way this season." Last week in Edmonton, the Eddies scored a stoppage-time goal for the 2-1 victory. McInerney was the lone goal scorer for Montreal in that game, beating goalkeeper John Smits in the 56th minute. It only took 10 minutes for McInerney to score on the return leg at Saputo Stadium, firing home after a Justin Mapp cross missed Felipe in the box but fell right to the 21-year-old instead. "No disrespect to Edmonton, but theyre a lower-level team," said McInerney. "I would expect from myself to go out there and score every game against them." Mapp fed McInerney again seven minutes later, flicking the ball to the on-rushing striker with his heel at the edge of the 18-yard box. McInerney gave no chance to Smits, beating the Eddies keeper with a quick strike. As winners of last years Canadian Championship, the Impact made it to the CONCACAF Champions League for the second time in the continental tournaments six-year history, where they were eliminated in the group stage.

And the lift he brought, combined with the expected playoff showings from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, have the Heat off and running in these playoffs.NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Pekka Rinne never feared his NHL career might have been ended by an E. coli infection that shut down the Nashville Predators goaltender for 51 games last season.Not knowing when he would be back in net again was another matter.Doctors simply couldnt tell him when he would be healthy enough to play, a scary uncertainty with the goalie left simply waiting for the medicine to work.When you have surgery and youre working your way back you kind of have a timetable, Rinne said. At that time, I didnt have any timetable. That was mentally the hardest part and you just hope the medicine is going to work and eventually youre going to get rid of that illness or bacteria.This time a year ago, Rinne had just been cleared to move from crutches to weight-bearing exercises.Now the 32-year-old Finn has just been selected to his first All-Star game. He leads the NHL in wins and has helped the Predators sit atop the league standings midway through this season.The 6-foot-5 Rinne has played 36 of Nashvilles first 41 games, and he is 28-6-2 putting him five wins ahead of Anaheim goalie Frederik Andersen. Rinne goes into Tuesday nights game with Vancouver not having lost since a 2-0 loss Dec. 13 at San Jose — the span of a month.Coach Peter Laviolette, in his first season as Nashvilles head coach, had only watched Rinne a few times before being hired last spring. Now that hes worked with the goalie for a few months, Laviolette has been impressed most by Rinnes work ethic and competitiveness.No quit in his game in practice or in games I think is a reflection on how he tries on everything, competes on everything, gets mad when he gets beat, and he takes all that competitiveness and brings it on the ice, Laviolette said. You talk to him off the ice, hes one of the nicest men youd ever want to meet.Rinne already was a two-time Vezina Trophy finalist who led the NHL with 43 wins in the 2011-12 season wwhen he played in a franchise-record 73 games.ddddddddddddHis troubles started in May 2013 when the goalie needed arthroscopic surgery on his left hip after playing through discomfort during the season. He recovered in time for the next season and had played nine games when the hip became infected in late October. Rinne needed another surgery, antibiotics and was on crutches for weeks in an ordeal he used to make himself better.Mentally, I got way stronger last year just battling with that and kind of learning not to worry about things, Rinne said.Rinne finally returned to the ice March 4 and wound up playing in 15 games down the stretch. He then went to the World Championship where he was named the MVP leading Finland to a silver medal.The goaltender didnt stop there. Rinne, who turned 32 last November, changed trainers and used a nutritionist to improve his diet last summer to help him be even stronger going into training camp after last season.I have to keep doing that and keep building, Rinne said. But yeah, the major thing is just kind of getting over last years injury and not thinking about it and not worrying about it.No goalie has played more than Rinnes 2,187 minutes so far this season, and he ranks second in goals-against average at 1.98 and third with a .930 save percentage. He also is tied for third with three shutouts.The Predators have turned to his backup Carter Hutton only five games this season, usually for one of a back-to-back set of games. Rinne said winning certainly makes playing even easier.You feel happy. You come to the rink with a smile on your face, and it makes a huge difference, Rinne said.Rinne insists he will let Laviolette when hes tired. Laviolette credits the schedule for allowing him to play the goalie so much, and the coach will try to manage Rinnes schedule going forward.But he wants to play too, Laviolette said.Especially after last season.
