Knoxville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Seeking to improve on a four-game win streak, the 15th-ranked Butler Bulldogs will hit the road to take on the Tennessee Volunteers in a non-conference clash at Thompson-Boling Arena. Butler enters the game sporting an 8-1 record this season, with four straight victories. The Bulldogs are riding a wave of momentum after blowing past Kennesaw State in the most recent contest, 93-51. Tennessee put a stop to a two-game skid with a narrow 65-64 victory over Kansas State last Saturday. The defeat of the Wildcats was the Vols most notable win of the season, having only beaten Texas Southern and Santa Clara otherwise. Butler owns the 2-1 lead in the brief all-time series with Tennessee. The last time these teams met on the court was during the 2008 NCAA Tournament, where the Volunteers came away with a 76-71 victory in overtime. Not only did Butler use a punishing first half that included a 64-percent shooting touch from the field to take a commanding lead into the break, but the Bulldogs 52 points in the opening period was more than Kennesaw State would score in the entire contest. Five players netted double figures for Butler, led by Roosevelt Joness 19-point effort. Kelan Martin came off the bench to score 17 points, Kellen Dunham contributed 13, Kameron Woods chipped in with 11 and Jackson Aldridge added 10 points in the win. The point total disparity between Butler and its opponents this season is an immense one. The Bulldogs enter this clash with Tennessee netting 74.2 ppg on an impressive 46.7 percent shooting, while at the same time the team allows opponents to net just 54.2 ppg. Dunham has picked up where he left off last season, netting a team-leading 16.3 ppg in nine starts. Jones follows that total up with 11.1 ppg and a team-best 5.3 apg, and Martin adds in 10.6 ppg to round out the double-digit scorers. Woods comes into the contest grabbing a team-best 8.3 rpg. Tennessee built up enough of a lead in the first half against Kansas State (25-17) to be able to sustain a second-period comeback attempt from the Wildcats. Kansas State shot just 25 percent from the floor in the first half, and went 0-of-7 from 3-point range to hand Tennessee the early lead. Josh Richardson was the only player for the Volunteers to record a scoring figure in the double digits, netting 17 points in the one-point win. Willie Carmichael chipped in nine points and six rebounds, and Armani Moore dished out a team-best five assists with five blocked shots. Tennessee, just one season after making it to the NCAA Tournament with a pair of victories in the tournament, has started a bit slow on the defensive end of the floor. The Vols are allowing opponents to score 68.8 ppg this season on 43.4 percent shooting. Meanwhile, the team is netting 65.7 ppg on its own, led by 16.0 ppg by Richardson. Moore contributes 11.0 ppg as the only other player averaging double-figure scoring. His 6.7 rpg is a team-best, while Kevin Punter has dished out a Tennessee-high 16 assists with 11 steals.

Through 48 games this season, Hemsky has seven goals and a total of 24 points.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said early Wednesday that theres no need for supplemental discipline for New York defenceman John Moore in the wake of his punishing hit on Montreal forward Dale Weise in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. "It doesnt meet the league standard as far as a late hit," Vigneault told reporters at a Wednesday morning availability in Montreal the day after the Habs 7-4 win. "It was a hit that Johnny caught him a little high in the chest, (the) player didnt see it coming. "It probably warrants the penalty that was given on the ice. Other than that, I dont see what else it could warrant, but Ive been surprised before. Well see what happens." Moore was suspended two games later on Wednesday for an illegal check to the head. Moore was given a major penalty and ejected from Tuesday nights game at Montreals Bell Centre when, at 10:41 of the third period, he nailed Weise with a blindside open-ice hit that was almost identical to Montreal forward Brandon Prusts unpenalized hit on Derek Stepan in Game 3. Prust, who had been suspended once before by the league, was subsequently given a two-game ban for the late check, which the NHL deemed as interference. Vigneault said the two cases were different. "Well, the player didnt see him coming, obviously, but the guy (Weise) was admiring his pass a little bit at the same time. Unfortunately, it was a hit and because of the force of the hit, the head seemed to snap back a litttle bit.dddddddddddd But as far as what I know about league standards and from what I heard from the Prust hit where the dynamics of the hit changed because Stepan was hurt, I dont see that at this time right now." Stepans jaw was broken by Prusts hit but the Rangers centre returned to action Tuesday after undergoing surgery, and scored two goals while wearing a chin guard. Weises helmet was knocked off after Tuesday nights hit and he was wobbly when he got up, with teammate P.K. Subban grabbing him in a bear hug for support. He left for treatment but returned to the bench late in the period. Montreal coach Michel Therrien did not take umbrage at Vigneaults assessment of the play. "What Alain is saying its normal. Hes there to protect his players with his comments, and any coach is going to say those types of things. But we all saw the hit. Its in the leagues hands and Im sure theyre going to take the good decision, so thats the way we see it." Moore plays on New Yorks third defensive pairing with Kevin Klein. Tuesdays win staved off elimination for Montreal, narrowing the Rangers lead in the series to three games to two. Game 6 is Thursday at Madison Square Garden. The series has already seen two suspensions — New Yorks Dan Carcillo was banned for 10 games for jostling a linesman in the wake of the Prust hit. Asked if Raphael Diaz would be the replacement for Moore if suspended, Vigneault replied: "Were not there yet. I dont expect anything."
