BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Wes Hopkins Jersey . -- Will Power and Penske Racing are back in a familiar position at Barber Motorsports Park: Starting in the pole position at a track where they dominated until last year. Power, a two-time winner, came out on top in a Fast Six qualifying Saturday that featured five drivers from IndyCar powerhouse teams Penske, Andretti Autosport and Ganassi Racing. "I was thinking it was going to be very tough to beat the Andretti boys, theyve been so fast around here," Power said. "But I was able to do one lap each time on my tires, so I had two shots at it. It was awfully close. Nothing between everyone. "But very happy to be on pole. It was definitely the aim. Puts you in a much better position to keep out of trouble on the start." There was plenty of trouble at Long Beach two weeks ago, and Scott Dixon was the only Fast Six driver not caught up in it. Most of the drivers have cleared the air, but Simon Pagenaud has said the tone might have been set for the season when he was spun from behind by Power. Ryan Hunter-Reays attempt to pass Josef Newgarden on a tight turn also collected seven drivers, including Andretti teammate James Hinchcliffe of Oakville, Ont. Power expects some clarification of what constitutes "clean racing" at the pre-race drivers meeting with race director Beaux Barfield. "What happened between Pagenaud and myself, I feel bad," the Australian driver said. "He had every right to be really angry. "I think the payback system is not going to work very well for us with these cars and the tracks we go to. It will become dangerous. Well talk about it in the drivers meeting, come up with some compromise." Mike Conway won the tension-filled race at Long Beach but will start in the 21st spot. Hinchcliffe qualified second, as he did at Long Beach, while defending champion Ryan Hunter-Reay starts third. Hinchcliffe was stranded beside the track for most of last years race after damage on the first lap. He also started on the front row in 2012 and finished 12th. "Kind of feels like always the bridesmaid, never the bride," Hinchcliffe said. "Its my sixth front-row start and never had a pole yet." Newgarden is fourth and his team with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing might as well represent the underdogs in the group that also includes Ganassis Scott Dixon and Penskes Helio Castroneves. Power and Castroneves combined to claim the pole and the win in each of the first three years at the track. For Power, thats three pole starts in five years at Barber. Hunter-Reay broke the teams stranglehold last year, starting and finishing first. Much of the weekends buzz has been about the impact of temperatures that have soared since testing in February, making for a slicker track. "Everybody is going to be swatting at flies the whole day in the car," Hunter-Reay said. "Trying to keep it on the racetrack is going to be tough. Were all going to have that. "I think it should be a pretty interesting race because of it. I think its anybodys race. " The only potential drama in qualifying came when Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais lost his fastest two laps for interfering with Hunter-Reay in the second session. Hunter-Reay said Bourdais team didnt alert their driver that he was coming up behind. "He was in the third gear or second gear in a six-gear corner and he was coming in that lap," Hunter-Reay said. "I know Bourdais; hes pretty switched on. So either he did it intentionally or he had no idea I was there, and it was the latter. He said his team didnt tell him. "Its all right. We still ended up in the Fast Six, so no big deal." Dixon was in contention late in Long Beach before he stopped for fuel as a precaution. Now, hes seeking to break through at Barber, where he has been the runner-up in each of the first four races. "I think two of the second-place finishes we had before were hard-earned and we were pretty happy with it," he said. "The other two we lost on a last pit exchange or a strategy issue." Juan Pablo Montoya starts eighth, his best qualifying spot since moving from NASCAR back to open-wheel racing this season. "Were gaining on it," Montoya said. "I think we have a really good race car and its amazing because every practice is better. Every qualifying is better. Its just a matter of getting the hang of it." Stefen Wisniewski Jersey . Blatter also told reporters Saturday after meeting with Qatars emir that the decision to award the tournament to the desert nation is "not reversible." There have been calls to move the tournament because of Qatars intense heat. Jalen Mills Jersey . As deep as their roster is, they need their superstar. Rose scored 23 points in his return from a five-game absence due to back pain, and Chicago hung on to beat the struggling Atlanta Hawks 90-79 on Monday. http://www.theeaglesfootballauthentic.com/eagles-donnel-pumphrey-black-jersey/ . The Big Man finished 3-1 in Week 19, and sits at 53-24 on the season. Now Schultz is ready for more action.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes were embarrassed the previous time they played Los Angeles. Their last game wasnt a whole lot better, even if it was a victory. Bouncing back against the Kings and getting back to their defensive mindset should make them feel much better. Mike Smith stopped 41 shots, Kyle Chipchura had a goal and an assist, and the Coyotes rebounded from an ugly loss to Los Angeles by beating the Kings 3-1 Tuesday night. "We needed to play well, not just because it was a big division game and they beat us last week, but we needed to get our game in order," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We still gave up 40 shots, but we competed the way we need to be successful." Smith had a miserable game in California last Thursday, when he was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots in the first period of the Kings 7-4 win. Both he and the Coyotes got off to a much better start in the rematch. Phoenix was sharp early in its own zone and Smith was superb throughout, making numerous tough saves before Jarret Stoll beat him on a power play late in the third period. The Coyotes broke open a tight game in the final 2 minutes of the second period on goals by Derek Morris and Shane Doan. Chipchura, who completed the Gordie Howe hat trick with a fight in the second period, scored his goal in the third, and Andy Miele had two assists for his first NHL points to help Phoenix improve to 5-0-1 at home. "We talked about having a better start," Smith said. "Our start in LA the other day wasnt as close to being where it needed to against a good hockey team. I thought we did a good job tonight from the drop of the puck to respond to a tough loss in their building last time." The Kings had won seven of their previous nine games and were sharp early, creating good chances while Ben Scrivens matched Smith nearly save for save. The game fell apart for them late in the second period, when the Coyotes scored two goals against Scrivens on deflections and Smith kept making saves. Scrivens stopped 30 shots. "They hadnt lost at home, so you knew you were going to need to make some saves in the first period and both goalies did," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "As the game went on, their goalie was on." The Coyotes were trying to find a way to clean things up in their own end after a pair of wide-open games that featured 20 combined goals. Isaac Seumalo Jersey. The latest was against Edmonton on Saturday, when Phoenix took a two-goal lead, lost it when the Oilers scored three straight and won 5-4 with a pair of third-period goals. The one before that was the game in Los Angeles, where the Kings scored four goals in the first period, Phoenix rallied to tie it with four straight goals in 13 minutes and the Kings pulled away by scoring the final three, the last into an empty net to complete Dwight Kings hat trick. The rematch was more like these division rivals are used to playing, marked by solid defence, some big hits, along with plenty of testiness and trash talking. The scoreless first period had plenty of action, featuring 20 minutes of penalties and five players in the box at one point. The tension boiled over early in the second, when LAs Daniel Carcillo and Chipchura dropped the gloves for a fight near mid-ice. Both teams traded good scoring chances in the period and both goalies were superb, turning away a combined 23 shots. The Coyotes called a timeout after a flurry by the Kings late in the period and responded with two goals in the final 1:41. Morris got the first on a shot from the point that caromed off Kings defenceman Robyn Regehrs skate and teammate Drew Doughtys leg. Doan followed with his 100th career power-play goal at 5.9 seconds, redirecting a shot by Oliver Ekman-Larsson from the point. "It was tough, a couple tough bounces out there," Scrivens said. "But thats how you score goals in this league: Throw pucks to the net, get guys in front, get a fortuitous bounce. Weve just got to take what we can from it and move on." Chipchura put it all but out of reach in third period, when a cross by David Moss went off his skate past Scrivens. Smith gave up the power-play goal late in the game, but all that did was spoil the shutout, not the overall performance. NOTES: Martin Hanzal, Phoenixs second-leading scorer, served the first of a two-game suspension for charging Edmontons Jeff Petry on Sunday. Forwards Jeff Halpern and Lauri Korpikoski, along with defenceman Rostislav Klesla, also were out with injuries. ... The Kings scored one goal or fewer for the third time in 13 games this season. ... Miele, called up before the game, had assists on the goals by Morris and Chipchura.
