BOSTON -- Boston winger Milan Lucic didnt hide the thoughts many of his teammates may have had in the Bruins locker room following a fairly easy win over Carolina. Retro Jordans Australia . "I just hope were not peaking right now and keep wanting more," Lucic said after the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins beat the Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday afternoon for their eighth straight victory. "Weve done a good job of staying focused and keeping on the task at hand," he said. "It seems like were playing at our highest level of the season so far. It seems to have gotten better since the start of February and Olympic break." Jarome Iginla scored a pair of goals and backup goaltender Chad Johnson made 29 saves, helping extend the Bruins longest winning streak since a 10-game stretch in November 2011. Lucic had a goal and two assists, Torey Krug and Chris Kelly each scored a goal and David Krejci added three assists, his first coming as he was falling to the ice on Lucics score. Bruins coach Claude Julien wasnt about to say his team is playing its best. "If he thinks were peaking too soon I can show him areas where we can play better," he said, breaking into a grin. "Were playing well and working hard." Alexander Semin had the goal and Cam Ward made 36 saves for the Hurricanes, who lost for the eighth time in 11 games. Johnson, playing with regular goalie Tuukka Rask getting the day off, is 8-0-1 in his past nine starts. Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk had to be helped off the ice favouring his right leg after going off-balance into the boards midway into the third period. He was back about a minute later and ended up blocking a shot before limping off on his next shift. Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead on Lucics goal 15:28 into the opening period. Krejci was falling after being tripped on what would have been a penalty on Eric Staal, but he pushed the puck ahead to Lucic. The winger then snapped off a quick shot inside the right post into a wide-open area with Ward over near the other post. "Its funny. I was talking to him after the play," Lucic said, smiling. "He said he was going to shoot it. Its a bit of a lucky play to come back to me. Again, youve gotta be lucky to be good sometimes. Thats what happened there. Thats how it goes sometimes. You can be working hard and playing well and things dont go your way." Lucic then set up Iginla to make it 2-0 at 17:24 of the second. The Bruins rugged winger outworked defenceman Jay Harrison for the puck in the corner, hustled to it behind the net and sent a pass out front to Iginla, who fired a wrist shot inside the far post over Wards glove. Semin ended Johnsons shutout bid 3:53 into the third when his shot caromed off the stick of Boychuk and bounced into the net. Boston broke it open with two goals later in the period before Krug scored in the final seconds. "Yeah, you know what, theyre a good hockey team, theyre physical," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "It was disappointing for us because weve been playing pretty good hockey recently. Usually, as the game goes on we get stronger and stronger, but I dont think we pushed back well enough tonight after they came out hard in the first. They set the tone and I dont think we really responded -- even though the game was a 2-1 game for the most part." Kellys score made it 3-1 at 12:49 and Iginla scored his team-leading 23rd goal 13 seconds later, firing a wrister past Ward from the slot. Johnson had a key save late in the second after Boston made it 2-0 when he made a right pad stop on Staal at the end of a 2-on-1 break. "I thought we didnt capitalize on opportunities, and that always hurts us obviously early in the game, and then they just kept coming," Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe said.

A.J. Griffin grabbed anybody he could to dance with in the middle of the room. Manager Bob Melvin stood in the hallway and stayed dry for a while, just smiling and soaking up the scene. His T-shirt said it all: "We Own The West." Coco Crisp hit a three-run homer, Daric Barton and Jed Lowrie each had a solo shot and the As wrapped up their second straight AL West title while overpowering the Minnesota Twins 11-7 Sunday. "The only bad part about this is our clubhouse is going to stink for about two weeks," Reddick said. Oswaldo Arcia homered and drove in six runs for Minnesota. But the Twins were just the latest team the As turned into a footnote during another scintillating September run. The As clinched their 16th division crown and 25th post-season appearance when Texas lost 4-0 at Kansas City during the game. Sonny Gray (4-3) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings for Oakland, calling it "one of the most nerve-racking starts Ive ever had." The As scored six runs in the second inning and one in each of the next five to set the stage for their own celebration. Evan Scribner struck out Josmil Pinto swinging for the final out. The As sprinted out of the dugout, jumping around in their gold uniforms to turn the infield into a blur. For the As, it was a far-less dramatic scene than a year ago, when they won the AL West on the final day of the regular season by beating Texas to complete a series sweep. "I think last year we surprised a lot of people," third baseman Josh Donaldson said. "I think this year were an all-around better team and we feel like we belong." This years post-season push -- sealed with a week to spare -- was less surprising but equally remarkable. The As had the fourth-lowest opening day payroll at about $65 million. They have a roster full of mostly anonymous and up-and-coming players. And their home is an old, dual-sport stadium where sewage has leaked in the clubhouses and the dugouts in one sickening scene after another. Still, the As emerged as the team to watch this October in the Bay Area while the San Francisco Giants -- winners of two of the last three World Series titles -- sank out of the post-season picture. Oakland has won four straight and 13 of 16 to move a season-high 30 games over .500. "I dont know how anybody could be surprised this year," outfielder Brandon Moss said. The As, who lost in five games to the eventual AL champion Detroit Tigers in the division series last season, are still trying to get home-field advantage. Wholesale Jordan Australia. AL East champion Boston (95-62) currently holds the top spot and AL Central-leading Detroit (91-65) is trying to overtake Oakland (93-63) with six games left. "Last year, it was euphoria at the end," Melvin said. "We were happy to be there. Didnt mean that we didnt go into the Detroit series with some tenacity and expectations to win. But this is just a whole different feel this year. We really did expected to be here as a team." Melvin had refused to talk about anything related to the playoffs until his team sealed a spot. Even after guiding Oakland to consecutive division crowns in his first two full seasons, he deflected the attention to his players and let general manager Billy Beane bask in his "Moneyball" fame again. "Its been a relatively smooth year," Beane said. "We havent had a lot of crises, which means you dont have to see me a lot, which is perfect." After tearing down the plastic sheets and putting away the bubbly in the clubhouse when the Rangers won Saturday night, the As left nothing to chance. In the second, Cole De Vries (0-1) walked three straight batters with two outs before Oaklands outburst. Eric Sogard blooped a two-run single, Crisp hit his 22nd home run and Donaldson doubled to put the Athletics ahead 6-1 and whip the green-and-gold clad crowd into a frenzy. With the Twins batting in the third, word started to circulate around the Coliseum of Justin Maxwells two-out grand slam that beat the Rangers in the 10th inning to seal the division title for the As. Some players, noticing the high-fives and hollers in the stands, kept glancing at the manual scoreboard in left field. The excitement subsided briefly when Arcia hit a three-run homer in the third to slice Oaklands lead to 6-4. Then Maxwells slam was shown on the video board between innings, setting off chants of "Lets go, Oakland!" from the announced crowd of 30,589. Players shared subtle hugs in the dugout, saving the celebration till the end. NOTES: Only the Yankees (51) and Dodgers (27) have more post-season appearances than the As. ... Crisp joined the 20-20 club for the first time when he stole his 20th base in the sixth inning. ... RHP Mike Pelfrey (5-13, 5.34) starts for the Twins in their series opener with the Detroit Tigers on Monday night, while A.J.
