Toro Rosso youngster Carlos Sainz claims he is ready to follow Max Verstappen in making the jump to the senior team. Though both impressed in their rookie F1 season last year, it was Verstappen who stole the plaudits and subsequently got bumped up to Red Bull to replace Daniil Kvyat in 2016.The teenager duly won his first ever race in the RB12 but Sainz, who also shone at the Spanish GP in finishing sixth, says he would be prepared should Red Bull wish to promote him as well. Asked if he was ready for a front-running team, the Spaniard told Sky Sports News HQ: I definitely think so.Mark Hughes: Where next for Sainz?I am here for Red Bull whenever they need me to jump in the top team. I am fully ready. I always say the same that [being] ready is not a problem.My performance in the Spanish GP was good, but it was the same as in all the other grands prix. Its just nothing strange happened to me and finally I managed to pick up a strong result.But, honestly, I did nothing different to any other grand prix, I just had a bit more luck. So very happy, very pleased with that and hopefully this is a bit of a start from zero for me this season and we can keep scoring some results from now on. Sainz has scored 12 points this season while Toro Rosso are lying fifth in the constructors standings, though they may struggle with a lack of upgrades to their 2015-spec Ferrari engine later on in the campaign.The STR11 looked to be strong in practice at the Monaco GP, however, with Kvyat and Sainz respectively finishing sixth and 10th in P1, and fifth and sixth in P2.On a Thursday in Monaco, you have many drivers who maybe sandbag three tenths because they dont want to risk it all out, Sainz added.Red Bull speed in Monaco unbelievableYou have teams like Ferrari that maybe havent got it right for a Thursday. You have traffic for your push laps when 22 cars are out on track.But we are bit better than expected, maybe.

I wondered how NHL coaches would feel about a playoff schedule that allowed them to open a best-of-seven series on the road, which many claim to favour, yet still gave them the precious home-ice edge for a seventh game.

Thurman Munson Away Jersey . -- Patrick Kueng of Switzerland was nearly flawless as he captured his first World Cup and halted Aksel Lund Svindals streak of four straight super-G victories on Saturday.PHILADELPHIA -- From snipers to defencemen, the Boston Bruins are getting plenty of scoring. Jarome Iginla and Zdeno Chara each had two goals, Tuukka Rask made 25 saves and the Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-1 Saturday. Reilly Smith and Patrice Bergeron also had goals for the Bruins. The defending Eastern Conference champions are 3-0-1 since losing five of eight, and trail only Pittsburgh in the conference. "The more you can spread around the scoring, the tougher you are to defend," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "Its important to have. We like the fact that we are well-balanced and our scoring is spread around." Chara became the eighth Bruins player to reach double-digits in goals when he scored in the first period to make it 1-0. He also capped the scoring with another power-play goal. "I think its important we have a lot of contributions," Iginla said. "When you get in tight games, we feel we have a lot of guys who can find goals. You want a lot of different guys who can score and a lot of guys are feeling it." Claude Giroux scored a power-play goal for the slumping Flyers, whove lost four in a row. Theyre 2-5-2 in their last nine games, tumbling from second place in the division to eighth in the East. Its their worst stretch since a 1-7 start that saw coach Peter Laviolette fired three games into the season. "We need to be a consistent team and thats what we strive to be," coach Craig Berube said. "If you want to be a good team, a playoff team, a team that does something in the playoffs, you have to be consistent. You lose a few games and youre fragile. Thats what I see. But we can correct that and go in the right direction. Were a goood team.dddddddddddd Its a confidence thing for us." Steve Mason allowed four goals on 19 shots and was yanked for the second time in three starts since signing a contract extension last Saturday. The Bruins took a 1-0 lead on Charas first power-play goal in the first period. After Sean Couturier failed on a clearing attempt, David Krejci swung the puck around down low. Iginla passed it to Chara, who flipped a shot from a side angle that bounced off defenceman Braydon Coburns skate and went in. Iginla fired a slap shot from the right circle past Mason to make it 2-0 just 17 seconds before the first intermission. A turnover by defenceman Nicklas Grossmann led to Bostons third goal. Smith stepped around Grossmann and swiped at the puck, which hit the post, hit Mason and went in. "Teams cant just rely on shutting down one line when you have a lot of guys scoring," Smith said. "It stifles the defence and changes the game." Rask kept it 3-0 with his toughest save, a sliding glove stab going right to left to rob Jakub Voracek on a one-timer. Bergeron made it 4-0 minutes later, sending Mason to the bench. Giroux and Iginla traded power-play goals in the third. "We have to get better," Giroux said. "Were going away from how we want to be as a team and how we were winning games." NOTES: Rask earned his career-high 23rd win. ... Iginlas first goal was his first since Jan. 2, snapping an eight-game drought. ... Flyers D Andrej Meszaros was a healthy scratch despite his recent offensive production.
