Jaromir Jagr scored 1:46 into overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 3-2 win over the  Edmonton Oilers  on Wednesday. In the extra session, Jamie Benn blasted a shot  on net  from the high slot that  was stopped and the rebound went to the right  boards. From there, Jagr picked up the puck, skated to the inside right circle  and  beat Devan Dubnyk with  a wrister to  the short side for the win. That  goal  was the 668th of  Jagr's career and moved  him into a tie with Luc Robitaille for 10th place in NHL history.

=== NBA ===

The  Los Angeles  Lakers learned  on Wednesday  that forward  Pau Gasol  has a partial tear of his plantar fascia.  Gasol had an MRI exam in Boston Wednesday after hurting his right foot  during Tuesday's win over the Nets  in Brooklyn. The 32 year-old Spaniard landed on  top of Brook Lopez's foot and  was holding his  right foot  in pain  before walking  off the floor  under his  own power. Reports indicate that Gasol  could opt for rehab,  with an estimated timetable of 6-8 weeks.  On the other hand, surgery would require 10-12 weeks. Gasol  is averaging 13.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 36 games this season.

=== NFL ===

Just  one  day after parting ways  with linebacker Michael Boley, the New York Giants  released running back Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive tackle Chris Canty. Bradshaw,  who had  two years left  on  his contract,  was set  to make  $3.75 million in 2013 and $4 million in 2014. Canty was  due to make $6.5 million in 2013. Bradshaw spent six years with the Giants and rushed for 1,015 yards with six touchdowns  as the team's primary  running back  in 2012.  However, he has been  plagued  by chronic  foot  issues,  leading  to another  procedure  this offseason  to  insert a larger screw  in his twice-fractured right foot. In 84 career  games  with  the  Giants,  Bradshaw rushed  for  4,232  yards  and  32 touchdowns. He also caught 132 passes for 1,087 yards and three scores.

=== COLLEGE FOOTBALL ===

Wednesday was National Signing Day in college football,  and the nation's  top recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, a defensive end from Loganville, GA, announced that he  will play  for the  University of Mississippi. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound 18- year-old,  ranked as the consensus  No. 1 overall prospect  by Rivals.com  and several other  scouting services,  selected  the Rebels  over LSU  and Florida during a press  conference  held  at his  high school auditorium.  Nkemdiche's older brother, Denzel, is a starting linebacker at Ole Miss.

=== SOCCER ===

The  final  round of  World Cup  qualifying got off  to a  shaky start for the United  States  on Wednesday  as  the  Americans  dropped  a 2-1  decision  at Honduras.  Jerry  Bengtson netted the winning  goal in the 79th minute for the home  nation.  Clint Dempsey scored the  lone goal for the Americans, who will next  face  Costa Rica at home  on March 22  before a difficult trip to Mexico four days later.
