PARAMUS, N.J. -- Now that the majors are over, Adam Scott is going after the only big prize left this year -- a shot at the $10 million FedEx Cup title. Scott ran off four straight birdies in the middle of his round Friday, and then closed with an approach that settled a foot from the cup for a tap-in birdie and a 6-under 65. That gave him a share of the 36-hole lead with Cameron Tringale at The Barclays. Three dozen players were within five shots of the lead, a group that includes British Open and PGA champion Rory McIlroy. The worlds No. 1 player, going after his fourth straight victory, shook off some rust on the range and was nine shots better than his opening round with a 65. Scott won The Barclays a year ago at Liberty National, and it felt like a bonus in a year in which he won his first major at the Masters. He never had a serious chance at any of the majors this year, and he is looking at the FedEx Cup playoffs differently. "Theres so much to play for, and for me to be satisfied with the year, I need four really great weeks," Scott said. Scott and Tringale were at 8-under 134. Kevin Chappell (67), Brendon Todd (69) and Jim Furyk (69) were one shot behind. The group two shots back included Henrik Stenson (64), Jason Day (64) and Ernie Els, who is playing his sixth straight tournament and shot a 68. Some scorecards needed more than just numbers, starting with Phil Mickelson. Lefty took a bogey on the "five-and-dime" fifth hole, thusly named because Byron Nelson always used a 5-iron and a wedge. Mickelson, like so many other players, tried to drive the green and took a wild detour. His shot bounced into the grandstand, behind a row of seats on the thin carpet of the hospitality area. Instead of dropping into deep grass, he chose to play it out of the bleachers, right next to a half-filled glass of beer on a table. It went too long, over the green and into a bunker, though it gave the crowd a thrill. "It wasnt hard to make contact. It was hard to hit it on that skinny little green and get it to stop," Mickelson said. He compared it with trying to hit a shot off the cart path, except the carpet "doesnt scrape up your club as much." Mickelson birdied his last hole for a 72 to make the cut on the number. Seung-yul Noh made a bogey by playing off the wrong green -- except it turned into a triple bogey because he didnt know that he wasnt allowed to hit off the putting surface from a different hole. His tee shot on No. 11 was so far right that it landed on the third green. Noh took a divot off the green, and a rules official drove up and told him the rule, which comes with a two-shot penalty. McIlroy kept his excitement to birdies. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland said he took a week away from golf to celebrate his big summer -- two majors and his first World Golf Championship -- and paid for it with an opening 74. But the range session Thursday afternoon did wonders, and he went from below the cut line to within five shots of the lead. He also made those "Freaky Friday" rounds that ruined so many tournaments a distant memory. His last four second rounds have been 66, 64, 67 and 65. Thats more like "Fun Friday," and theyve put the No. 1 player back in the mix. "Its a very bunched leaderboard," McIlroy said. "Im still five shots behind, but theres a lot of players between me and the leaders -- obviously, a few quality guys at the top, Adam being one of them. So Im going to have to shoot a couple of rounds similar to today to maybe win this thing." Scott was so clean from tee-to-green that he shot 65 and walked away lamenting a pedestrian effort with his putter. He missed six putts inside 12 feet and played the par 5s in 1 over. No wonder he called that "some of the best golf Ive played all year." "It just wasnt my day today on the greens," he said. The top 100 from the FedEx Cup advance to the second playoff event next week outside Boston, with the top 70 advancing to third event in Denver and the top 30 going to East Lake in Atlanta for the Tour Championship and a shot at the $10 million prize. Lee Westwood kept his PGA Tour season going -- barely. He shot a 73 and made the cut on the number at 1-over 143. Because 79 players made the cut, there will be a 54-hole cut Saturday, only the second such cut in the playoffs since the new policy began in 2008.

HABS HEADED TO CONFERENCE FINAL The Montreal Canadiens scored early in Game Seven, built a lead and protected it well on their way to a 3-1 series-clinching win over the Boston Bruins. While this game or series isnt necessarily a referendum on the value of fourth lines, the Canadiens certainly benefitted from production lower down their forward depth chart. Mariners Jerseys 2019 . - A Tuesday funeral is planned in Toronto for 20-year-old Saginaw Spirit forward Terry Trafford.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The Colorado Avalanche were deflated after their blowout loss in the season opener.Their egos, especially. And maybe not a bad thing, either.Coach Patrick Roy thinks maybe the success of last season went straight to their heads, as did all the preseason hype proclaiming them contenders again in the Western Conference.The Avs didnt play with their usual chip on the shoulder throughout the preseason, and it carried over when they were outhustled and outshot in a 5-0 loss at Minnesota on Thursday.Roy is hoping to see a different team a€” one resembling the squad that captured the Central Division last season a€” on the ice Saturday night for the home-opener against the Wild.All summer long, everybody said how nice we were, how good we were, how special we were, how everybody was excited about the team, how everybody was excited about this year, said Roy, whose team tied a franchise record with 52 wins. We forgot how hard we worked last year to be the team we were. Thats what we have to do.This is a wake-up call.The Wild had a franchise-record 48 shots on goal and chased goaltender Semyon Varlamov from the game. When asked if Varlamov would be in net again Saturday, Roy chuckled. Not because his goaltenders performance was laughable, but because Varlamov was actually solid in spite of the score.Hes the reason why it was only 5-0, Roy said.Just like last season, Roys trying to keep an even-keel approach. No highs after big wins and no eruptions after losses like this one. The team was scheduled to have a day off the ice on Friday, so Roy kept it that way. The players worked out, watched film and then went home.However, Roy will alter his lineup. Hes pairing Jarome Iginla with Matt Duchene and Ryan OReilly on one line. The second line will feature Alex Tanguay, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog.Simply trying to find a spark just as Roy did all during the preseason when his team went 1-5-2.dddddddddddd.Its only one game, but we have to learn from that game, Roy said. We cannot push it aside and say, Hey, lets forget about it.Roys coaching debut last season was quite memorable a€” he tried to push through a glass partition to get to Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau. And that was after a 6-1 win.The team took on the persona of their fiery coach and got off to a sizzling 14-2 start.But the way they lost this opener a€” struggling with possession and outraced down the ice a€” made for a long plane ride back to Denver.Its always quiet after a loss, but last night guys were kind of talking to each other on the plane and chit-chatting about what really happened and what are we going to do to get better, Landeskog said. Everybody has a right to be (mad) and disappointed, but everybodys got to be able to step back and look at what we really did and what we didnt do and what we have to do to be a better team.Like putting the past behind.We have to know that we cant just show up and put the gear on and were going to be a good team, said Duchene, whose team was knocked out of the post-season by the Wild by an overtime goal in Game 7. We have to do what we did last year a€” come to every game with enthusiasm and hard work and excitement. Last night, we almost seemed a little tentative.This team is a trendy pick to possibly make an even deeper post-season run. The Avs brought in veterans like Brad Stuart, Daniel Briere and Iginla to not only improve the roster, but help in tough situations like this.A lot of us didnt want the puck last night, Duchene said. There were times when we tried to pass the problem off to someone else. We just have to take control and be loose and just play. Theres no reason to be nervous or uptight about trying to duplicate what we did last year.We just have to relax and play hockey, work hard and have fun. Thats what we did last year. ' ' '
