OWINGS MILLS, Md. Nikola Vucevic Jersey . -- Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension from the NFL on Thursday following his off-season arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The six-year veteran was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer. The 27-year-old Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged. Rice met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last month after joining the diversion program. Goodell ultimately decided to suspend the running back for two games without pay and fine him an additional game check "for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the leagues Personal Conduct Policy." Despite the courts decision not to impose criminal punishment, "the Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action." In a letter to Rice, Goodell wrote: "As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behaviour required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against women." Rices suspension will begin on Aug. 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement Sept. 12 after the Pittsburgh game. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games. "It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but thats my fault," Rice said in a statement issued by the Ravens. "As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counselling has helped tremendously." Rice is the teams career leader in total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing. Bernard Pierce is expected to start for Rice in Baltimores first two games. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement: "We appreciate the thorough process the league office used to evaluate the incident with Ray Rice. The time the Commissioner spent with Ray and Janay is typical of the extra steps the NFL takes when making decisions regarding discipline issues. While not having Ray for the first two games is significant to our team, we respect the leagues decision and believe it is fair." He added, "We also respect the efforts Ray has made to become the best partner and father he can be. That night was not typical of the Ray Rice we know and respect. We believe that he will not let that one night define who he is, and he is determined to make sure something like this never happens again." Rices teammates were not stunned by the news of the suspension. "You knew something was going to happen," wide receiver Torrey Smith said. "Ill be glad when those two games are up." Coach John Harbaugh said, "Its part of the process. There are consequences when you make a mistake; well move forward." Rice participated Thursday in Baltimores first full-squad practice. Before that session began, the Ravens lost cornerback Aaron Ross for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, a mishap that occurred during his conditioning test. Terrence Ross Jersey .

Just two minutes into the second period, St. Louis had matched the club mark with four goals on the game. The Lightning had the lead, but it wouldnt last. Joe Pavelski scored three straight goals of his own in the second period to help the San Jose Sharks rally for a 5-4 victory on Saturday. Pavelski beat goalie Ben Bishop twice in a span of 21 seconds midway through the period, and then added the winner a minute before the intermission. St. Louis struck three times against goalie Antti Niemi in a span of 7:34 in the first period for his eighth NHL hat trick. His fourth goal early in the second equaled the team mark set by Chris Kontos against Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Ed Belfour and the Chicago Blackhawks in Tampa Bays inaugural game on Oct. 7, 1992. St. Louis scored twice on the power play against a penalty-killing unit that hadnt allowed a goal in six consecutive games. His four goals were one more than San Jose had allowed in its previous four games combined. "I did appreciate them, until we were down and the game was over," St. Louis said. "Its tough to really be happy about it (when) at the end of the day you lose the game." Tampa Bay sustained its fifth straight one-goal loss at home. "Spotting him with four goals, its lucky we won the game," Sharks captain Joe Thornton said. "Hes been a great player for a lot of years. He knows whhat to do when he gets the puck. Aaron Gordon Jersey. " Thornton also reached a milestone, joining Hall of Famer Bobby Hull in 48th place on the NHL career list with 1,170 points with his assist on Pavelskis winner.

Matt Nieto and Patrick Marleau put San Jose ahead 2-1 with goals three minutes apart midway through the first period. St. Louis scored his first goal in between, then struck twice more before the intermission. His record-tying score 2:09 into the second period gave him eight goals and 11 points in the NHLs longest current point streak at seven games. "I thought we put ourselves in a good spot, up 4-2 against a pretty good San Jose team," St. Louis said. "We didnt keep pushing, we took penalties, and next thing you know, we are down a goal, so its deflating. We just didnt get it done." NOTES: San Jose has won eight of 10 in the series. .
