Henrik Sedin is the latest star to pull out of the Sochi Olympics. Sedin confirmed on Thursday he will not join his brother Daniel and the rest of Team Sweden at next weeks Olympics. The former Hart Trophy winner recently missed six games with bruised ribs. He incurred the injury during a January 17 game with the Phoenix Coyotes when he was crosschecked by Martin Hanzal. "Im disappointed not to be physically able to represent my country at the Winter Olympic Games." Sedin said in a statement. "This is a difficult decision but ultimately the best decision for me personally, Team Sweden and the Vancouver Canucks. I wish my teammates the best and look forward to returning to play." Sedin returned to action on Monday night against the Detroit Red Wings and played again on Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins, but did not register a shot on goal in either game. The Canucks had previously announced plans to pull Sedin from the clubs two remaining games before the Olympic break, Thursday against the Montreal Canadiens and Saturday nights visit to Toronto for a game with the Maple Leafs. In 52 games this season, Sedin has nine goals and 31 assists. Team Sweden, who has yet to name Sedins replacement, first sees action in Sochi on February 12 when they meet the Czech Republic.

The U.BOSTON -- Jon Lester just wants to put up impressive numbers on the mound. He will worry about the figures on his next contract later. Red Sox fans showed appreciation for his latest brilliant outing with loud applause as he walked to the dugout after his eighth and final inning Sunday. "I hope people are more pleased with how Im pitching and not how Im handling contract stuff," the All-Star left-hander said after a 6-0 win that gave Boston a three-game sweep over the Kansas City Royals. Lester, who can become a free agent after the season, allowed no earned runs for the third time in four starts. He struck out eight and gave up two walks and four hits. Only one Royals player reached third base. Clearly, he hasnt let the uncertainty over where he will be pitching next season hurt his pitching this season. "Hes been a model for others to witness as players get to that stage of their career," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Hes been able to handle it, I think, in a professional manner." Lester (10-7) is 4-0 with a 0.85 ERA over his last seven starts with 47 strikeouts and eight walks in a span of 52 2-3 innings. He has yielded just one earned run in 31 innings. "Youve got to take each one as an individual," Lester said. "If Im out there thinking about what I did last time, Im not worried about the right things." Lester extended his scoreless streak to 14 innings before Junichi Tazawa got the first out of the ninth. Edward Mujica retired the next two batters. "We matched up against an All-Star pitcher today and he was on top of his game," Royals manager Ned Yost said. Yordano Ventura (7-8) gave up all six runs. The first scored on Dustin Pedroias forceout at second base in the first, Daniel Nava hit a two-run double in the third, and Boston added three in the fourth on David Ross two-run homer and Navas sacrifice fly. That was more than enough support for Lester as he keeps building a case for a lucrative contract. "If these guys are happy with the way Im throwing and how Im going about my business, then thats all I care about," he said. "The other stuff will take care of itself when the right time comes." Boston entered the game in last place in the AL Eastt, percentage points behind Tampa Bay, but won for the seventh time in eight games.dddddddddddd Kansas City went scoreless after losing 2-1 Saturday night. The Royals have lost nine of 12, are 9-17 since a 10-game winning streak, and have scored less than two runs in four of their last six games. They open a three-game series at the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. "You basically just shake it off and get right back out there," designated hitter Billy Butler said. "We faced a tough left-hander today and it doesnt get any easier. We face Chris Sale tomorrow." The Royals put runners at first and second in the first when Eric Hosmer was hit by a pitch with two outs, and Danny Valencia singled. But Alex Gordon flied to left. Alcides Escobar was left on base after a one-out single in the second, and Lester retired eight consecutive batters before Escobar led off the fifth with a double. He reached third on a one-out groundout, but the threat ended when Lorenzo Cain flied out, leaving him hitless in 22 at bats. Hosmer singled with one out in the sixth to extend his hitting streak to 16 games. After Valencia struck out, Gordon drew a walk, the first issued by Lester in three starts. But Butler grounded out. Cain walked leading off the eighth, but Lester finished his outing by getting Omar Infante to ground into a double play before fanning Hosmer. "Jon Lester did a really nice job of holding us down," Yost said, "mixed in his curveball effectively, spotted his fastball well and used his cutter really well." Brock Holt scored Bostons first run after he and Nava singled. Navas double in the third came after a walk to Ross and a single by Jackie Bradley Jr. In the fourth, Shane Victorino doubled and scored on Ross sixth homer. Navas sacrifice fly drove in Bradley, who had singled. NOTES: Boston 1B Mike Napoli had the day off after hitting the go-ahead solo homer in the sixth inning Saturday. ... SS Escobar made an error in each of the three games. ... Jeremy Guthrie (5-8) pitches for Kansas City against Sale (8-1) on Monday night.
