VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Ryan Dzingel might have found a home on the Ottawa Senators second line. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Dalvin-Tomlinson-Jersey/ .The second-year forward had the first two-goal game of his career and Craig Anderson made 22 saves Tuesday night as Ottawa defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-0.Dzingel suited up alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan after spending the first five games of the season on the fourth line, and the speedy wing made the most of his opportunity.It was easy to play with those guys. Theyre great NHLers and great people, Dzingel said. Two good friends, and to be honest I just had a lot of fun out there -- just trying not to get in their way.I was proud to play with those two guys.The 24-year-old split time between Ottawa and the AHL last season, registering three goals and six assists in 30 NHL games. He already has four goals and two assists through six games this season.The whole summer I didnt just focus on just making the team, said the native of Wheaton, Illinois. I came to make a difference. My mindset was not to just be good enough, it was to be better.Dzingel said moving up the lineup would have been more difficult if he didnt already have great relationships off the ice with both Ryan and Brassard. He showed up early to training camp and lived with Ryan for a time before moving into Brassards house once the season started.There arent any nerves when you know how good they are, Dzingel said. I just had to play my game.Anderson entered play with a 3.66 goals-against average and an .866 save percentage but was flawless as Ottawa (4-2-0) opened a three-game road trip through western Canada with a solid defensive effort that was capped by Jean-Gabriel Pageaus empty-net goal.I felt as the game went on I was progressively getting better, said Anderson, who picked up his first shutout of the season and the 34th of his career. The way we played defensively allowed me to only have to make one or two big saves and when thats the case, usually you can have a pretty good game.Ryan Miller made 25 stops for Vancouver (4-2-1), which has lost three straight and lost at home for the first time.They were hard on the puck, Miller said. We started to make some adjustments. You have to be ready for that kind of stuff.After opening the scoring in the first period, Dzingel doubled Ottawas lead at 2:12 of the third, taking a slick no-look feed from Ryan in front and beating Miller.Since Day 1 at every practice and every game hes shown that he wants to be here, that hes ready to survive in the NHL before contributing offensively, first-year Senators head coach Guy Boucher said. He came here with the right attitude of: `Im staying here, Ill block shots, Ill kill penalties, Ill backcheck, Ill do whatever I need to do to be on this team and pay the price. Hes getting all the rewards.Ottawa had surrendered nine goals in third periods coming into Tuesday, and Anderson had to be sharp on a shot off the stick of Bo Horvat from the slot with about 12 minutes left in regulation.Anderson then stopped Sven Baertschi on a breakaway -- one of just three Vancouver shots in the third -- with six minutes to go to preserve the shutout before Pageau scored his first with Miller on the bench for an extra skater.I think our players are absolutely buying in, said Boucher, who is still in the process of implementing his system. I love the willingness to pay attention to small details and how to be unselfish.Ottawa carried the play for much of the first period and led 1-0 on Dzingels third of the season at 7:38 after the Senators jumped on a Canucks turnover in the neutral zone. Miller stopped Brassards initial shot on a 2-on-2 rush with Vancouvers forwards in the middle of a change, but Dzingel was right there for the rebound.Game notes Troy Stecher made his NHL debut for Vancouver after being called up from the AHL on Monday. The 22-year-old signed with the organization as a undrafted college free agent in the offseason, and took the place of Christopher Tanev (lower-body injury) alongside Alexander Edler on Vancouvers top defense pairing. ... Ottawa snapped a seven-game losing streak at Rogers Arena dating to 2004. ... Also missing for Vancouver were Fs Alexandre Burrows (neck) and Derek Dorsett (shoulder). Jayson Megna was recalled from the AHL and suited up for his first game with the club on the fourth line.UP NEXT:Senators: Visit Calgary on Friday.Canucks: host Edmonton on Friday and Washington on Saturday, but after that play just seven of their next 21 at home. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Calvin-Munson-Jersey/ .

SAN DIEGO -- After 15 years of working to get a stadium built here, the?Chargers?finally found out from San Diego city voters whether they want to build a new stadium that keeps the team in town.The answer, at least for the project as it currently stands, was a resounding no.With 100 percent of precincts reporting, the Chargers received only 43 percent approval on Measure C, the teams $1.8 billion downtown stadium and convention center annex that proposed raising hotel taxes from 12.5 percent to 16.5 percent to secure $1.15 billion in bonds to help pay for the project.The citizens ballot initiative required two-thirds of the voting public within city limits to approve the project, a high bar for the team to reach.In a letter sent late Tuesday night, Chargers chairman Dean Spanos thanked season-ticket holders and fans for their support but offered no insight into his intentions moving forward.?In terms of what comes next for the Chargers, its just too early to give you an answer, Spanos wrote. We are going to diligently explore and weigh our options, and do what is needed to maintain our options, but no decision will be announced until after the football season concludes, and no decision will be made in haste.On Wednesday, Spanos issued a statement that echoed that sentiment and reiterated that he didnt intend to make any decisions until after the regular season ends.Im eager -- as Im sure you all are -- to give the stadium debate a rest and enjoy some Chargers football, the statement read.The Chargers still have the option of being a tenant in the stadium project in Inglewood, California, which is headed up by?Rams?owner Stan Kroenke.As part of the Rams relocation agreement approved earlier this year by NFL owners, the Chargers have until Jan. 15 to decide whether they want to join the Rams in Los Angeles. The two sides agreed to terms on a deal that would bring the Chargers to Los Angeles as the second NFL team earlier this year.If the Chargers decide to stay in San Diego, the?Raiders?will have the opportunity to move south and join the Rams.However, with the Raiders focused on potentially relocating to Las Vegas, it could buy some time for the Chargers to continue to work on getting something done in San Diego.Spanos said last week that he has no meeting scheduled with Kroenke and that the NFL is supportive of whatever direction the Chargers would like to go.Theyve been great, Spanos said about the league.Last yearr, as the team partnered with the Raiders in an attempt to develop and fund a new stadium in Carson, California, the Chargers conducted what many in the city view as a scorched-earth policy that put them at odds with San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer over the location and financing of a new facility. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Aldrick-Rosas-Jersey/. However, this year, the Chargers committed to getting something done in San Diego after losing the race to Los Angeles to the Rams, which included Spanos working to create a better relationship with Faulconer.Spanos also changed his approach locally, getting out front more and interacting with fans and city leaders.After months of negotiations with the team, Faulconer announced three weeks ago his endorsement of the teams stadium proposal. Faulconer and the Chargers agreed to eight concessions to protect the citys financial interests and strengthen the teams ballot initiative.Its very important to work together, thats how you achieve success, Faulconer said. And as Ive said on numerous occasions, keeping the team here is in the best interest of the city.The Chargers have been here for 50 years. Part of a great American city is professional sports, just like are arts, culture and some of the other things that make us who we are. And so its worth doing, and its worth keeping focus to achieve success.Now that Faulconer and Spanos are on the same page, even with a loss at the polls, the Chargers could continue to work on improving the stadium plan, now that there appears to be some momentum toward building a new facility.It was never bad to begin with, Spanos said about his relationship with Faulconer. We had opposing views last year. Thats just part of doing business. Hes been great. Hes been supportive, and hes a very decent individual to deal with.City Councilman Chris Cate, who was called out by the Chargers because he opposed the measure, said he hopes Spanos comes to the table sooner rather than later.I understand the value of the Chargers. I was born and raised here, Cate said. I dont want them to leave. But it cant be a one-sided affair. People have to be at the table to hammer out a deal that works.Chargers quarterback?Philip Rivers?said hes trying to stay optimistic.I cant see us not here, Rivers said after practice on Wednesday.The Associated Press contributed to this report.?
