BARCELONA, Spain -- Cristiano Ronaldo scored deep in injury time to cap Real Madrids incredible 3-2 comeback victory at Levante on Saturday, when his team went from losing, to drawing, and finally to winning in the last five minutes. Spanish leader Barcelona, meanwhile, didnt miss the injured Lionel Messi as it cruised by Valladolid 4-1 at home with Neymar scoring once and setting up one of Alexis Sanchezs two goals. At 1-1, Levantes Nabil El Zhar grabbed what looked to be the winner in the 86th, but Madrid substitute Alvaro Morata stepped up to level in the 90th. Still facing what would have been a costly draw, Ronaldos last-gasp strike hit both a defender and the post before settling into the net to crush the hosts hopes of taking a point. "When Madrid plays football, it only needs five minutes to win a game," Madrid first-year coach Carlo Ancelotti said. This was Ronaldos second winner for Madrid on the last shot of the game in the last seven days after he netted a penalty six minutes after fulltime to grab a 2-1 win at Elche last Saturday. The Portugal forward has seven goals in league play - one less than Messi and Atletico Madrids Diego Costa - and 12 goals in 10 games in all competitions this season. The victory put Madrid back in third place, five points behind Barcelona and two points behind Atletico before it hosts Celta Vigo on Sunday. It also saved Ancelotti from even more pressure following the loss to Atletico last weekend. Although his teams lacklustre performance through most of the game will likely earn him more criticism. "People need to be patient," Morata said about the Madrid supporters who jeered Ancelotti in the last two home games. "There have been a lot of changes recently. We will play better, for sure." Barcelona extended its club record with an eighth win in as many games to start the league under new coach Gerardo Martino. Madrid holds the league milestone of nine wins to start the season in 1968. Alexis long blast in the 14th cancelled out Javi Guerras 10th-minute opener for Valladolid. Xavi Hernandez slotted in Barcelonas second in the 52nd before Neymar set up Alexis in the 64th. Alexis then returned the favour by generously passing back for Neymar to net his goal in the 70th. "Neymar didnt put on a Messi mask, each one plays his own game," Alexis told GOL TV. "I dont think that the fact Messi isnt here gives us more freedom. Without Leo we have more work because with him everything is easier." Elsewhere, Real Sociedad lost its second game this week in agonizing fashion, when Rayo Vallecano substitute Jonathan Viera won and converted an 89th-minute penalty. Sociedad lost in injury time at Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday. Elche got its second straight victory thanks to forward Ferran "Coro" Corominas two goals in a 2-1 win over visiting Espanyol. Without the injured Gareth Bale, Madrid could do very little to disarm Levantes stingy defence in the first half at a Ciutat de Valencia Stadium where it had lost in two of its previous three visits. Since suffering a 7-0 thrashing at Barcelona in the league opener, new coach Joaquin Caparros - known for his focus on defence - had steered Levante to a six-game undefeated streak that it almost kept going considering it never trailed Madrid until stoppage time. "It hurts to lose like this," Caparros said. "Its a pity. We did everything we could to win and the game lasted four minutes too long. We should have known how to manage the situation. El Zhars goal should have given us more oxygen but that didnt happen. Some of my players showed their lack of experience." After a foul-ridden first 45 minutes, Levante opened through striker Babacar "Baba" Diawara in the 57th. Madrid was caught pressing forward when Levante got a three-on-two breakaway, and midfielder Jordi Xumetra floated a cross for Baba to beat goalkeeper Diego Lopez with a right-footed volley. Sergio Ramos levelled four minutes later when the Madrid centre back raced in at the second post and slammed in Angel Di Marias corner kick. Madrid was again caught looking to score late when El Zhar did well to fend off Ramos in the area before he spun and fired in the ball. But Morata, who scored a late winner for Madrid here last season, coolly drove in his goal to finish a move started by fellow youngster Jese Rodriguez before Ronaldo pulled out his late heroics. On Sunday, its: Sevilla vs. Almeria, Getafe vs. Real Betis, and Athletic Bilbao vs. Valencia. Dwight Howard Rockets Jersey .

That and some line shuffling by coach Michel Therrien. Strong play at home has been a constant all season for the Canadiens, who look to continue that trend Friday night against the Los Angeles Kings. You can listen to coverage on TSN Radio 690 Montreal beginning at 6pm et. Montreal matched its longest skid of the season with a third straight loss, 4-1 at Dallas on Saturday. That ended a stretch of seven of eight on the road for the Canadiens (18-10-2), who returned to more familiar surroundings with a 3-1 victory over Vancouver on Tuesday in the opener of a five-game homestand. It was far from a perfect win, though, as the Canadiens were held to a season-low 16 shots and needed Thomas Plekanecs tiebreaking goal with 4:16 remaining. We all knew we needed to do more offensively, said Brendan Gallagher, who opened the scoring in the second period. We generated a lot of chances. Every line contributed. With his team struggling, Therrien put Alex Galchenyuk at center with Max Pacioretty and Gallagher on the first line, while David Desharnais played with Michael Bournival on the second. Sven Andrighetto joined Plekanec and fellow rookie Jiri Sekac on the third. Andrighetto has picked up a point in each of his first two NHL games. I dont really focus on goals and points, Andrighetto told the teams official website. Its my job to help the team win games. Thats my primary role on the second line with Plekanec. Defenceman P.K. Subban will play against the Kings after he missed yesterdays practice due to illness. The Canadiens have scored only 15 goals - excluding one into an empty net - during a 2-5-1 stretch. However, they are 10-3-1 at home with an average 3.1 goals compared to 1.8 per game on the road. Part of their offensive woes can be traced to slow starts. Montreal has scored a league-low nine first-period goals and has been outscored 8-2 in the opening 220 minutes over the past nine games.dddddddddddd The Kings gained a split on the first two stops of a five-game trip with a 5-3 victory over Ottawa on Thursday. Jake Muzzin had a career-high three assists, setting up third-period goals by Anze Kopitar and Trevor Lewis to help Los Angeles (15-9-5) avoid a third consecutive loss. Kopitar scored his first goal in 10 games, putting the Kings ahead for good 36 seconds after the Senators made it 2-all. That was big. They had momentum going their way and we kind of shifted it back into our hands, Muzzin said. To come back with a goal right away was huge. The five goals were the most by the Kings since a 5-2 win over Florida on Nov. 18. They totaled eight in the previous four games. After Jonathan Quick made 32 saves to beat the Senators, red-hot Martin Jones could get the nod in the second half of this back-to-back. Jones has lowered his goals-against average to 1.42 with shutouts in his last two starts. He stopped 31 shots in a 6-0 victory at Montreal on Dec. 10, 2013, lifting Los Angeles to its first win there since 1999. The Kings won both meetings against the Canadiens last season after seven straight losses in the series. -- PROJECTED LINES: Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher Andrighetto - Plekanec - Sekac Bournival - Desharnais - Parenteau Prust - Malhotra - Weise Markov - Subban Emelin - Gonchar Beaulieu - Gilbert Price (starter) Tokarski Scratches: Tangradi, Allen Injured: Eller (UBI), Weaver (concussion) TSN Game Notes LAK were 2-0-0 vs MTL last season, outscoring them 8-1 MTL has gone 5-1-0 past 6 at home vs LAK (lost last) MTL (18-10-2): won last game, havent won back to back last 8 games 2-0-1 when scoring first, 0/9 on PK 10-0-0 when scoring first Plekanec (1G, 2A) 3 game PT streak LAK (15-9-5): 4-2-2 past 8 road games, 4GF or more in 5 of the games 12-0-3 when scoring first 1 career GP for Quick (0-1-0) in MTL Jan 31/09 (4GA) Carter (0G, 2A) past 10 games cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys Soni Mustivar Jersey ' ' '
