LONDON -- Tottenham fans pelted Arsenal forward Theo Walcott with coins as their team was overpowered 2-0 in a hotly-contested London derby in the FA Cup on Saturday. Arsenal had already scored its goals in the third round fixture when the fierce rivalry turned ugly in the final ten minutes as Walcott was being carried off on a stretcher. Despite his knee injury, Walcott used his predicament as a chance to taunt the Tottenham fans, signalling the 2-0 score with his fingers as he was carried around the Emirates Stadium pitch. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisted that the gesture came after -- not before -- Tottenham fans hurled coins and bottles at Walcott and the medics carrying him. "The doctors said to me that the coins had been raining over (Walcotts) head and they had to protect him, maybe that is why he did that (gesture)," Wenger said. "After that, what he did is not offensive. You look for every single incident, I can understand that, but it is an action that didnt offend anybody." Arsenal had already done enough to book its place in the fourth round by that stage, seeing out the final minutes with 10 men as its three substitutes had been used before Walcott was injured. Santi Cazorla swept in the opener in the 31st minute, and the second goal came after a further 31 minutes when Tomas Rosicky charged forward from the halfway line before lifting the ball into the net. "We played very collectively and tactically very well," Rosicky said. "We always have the quality to score goals." The victory maintained Arsenals bright start to 2014, a year when Wenger will hope to produce the teams first trophy since the 2005 FA Cup. The Gunners are also top of the Premier League they havent won since 2004 and in the last 16 of the Champions League. Tottenham, though, has only one realistic chance of ending the season with silverware in the second-tier Europa League. In the three weeks since managerial novice Tim Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas, Spurs have been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions. But Sherwood has overseen a Premier League revival, collecting 10 out of a possible 12 points as Tottenham has climbed to within two points of the top four, in sixth place. Looking to maintain that momentum, Sherwood made only one change from the side that won at Manchester United on Wednesday, with 19-year-old midfielder Nabil Bentaleb making his first Tottenham start. Wenger, though, had the luxury of making five switches from the side that beat Cardiff 2-0 on New Years Day and Arsenal still was in the ascendancy throughout. "We had good discipline and were tight at the back," Wenger said. "With quick, sharp passing we looked dangerous." Tottenhams best chance was squandered 10 minutes into the second half, as former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who was jeered throughout, struggled to make a clean connection with Aaron Lennons cross. As Tottenhams back-line continued to crumble, Walcott was unfortunate not to score, curling a low shot wide before being forced off when he was having a great impact leading the attack. "He had a fighting attitude," Wenger said. Vans Old Skool Baratas España . Just ask Arsenal fans.

Vans Old Skool Rebajas . -- Creighton apparently has Villanovas number.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Roberto Luongo prevented the San Jose Sharks from moving into sole possession of first place. Luongo made 28 of his 52 saves in a frenzied third period to help the Florida Panthers snap San Joses six-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night. "We gave them the two points there," Sharks defenceman Jason Demers said. "Thats unacceptable." Marty Havlat and Brent Burns scored, but the Sharks were lackadaisical on defence in the second period and came up empty on four power plays in the third period to lose the game. That cost San Jose a chance to move past Anaheim for first place in the Pacific Division. The teams are tied with 97 points heading into Thursdays showdown at the Shark Tank, but the Ducks have a game in hand. The Sharks came in with the best home winning percentage in the NHL, but four of their nine losses at home have come against the bottom four teams in the inferior Eastern Conference -- Carolina, the Islanders, Florida and Buffalo. "Weve talked about this lesson a lot of times this year already with teams that are maybe not in the playoffs and we keep shooting ourselves in the foot," coach Todd McLellan said. "Until we fix that, well probably end up with the same results." Brandon Pirri scored one goal and set up Quinton Howden for another in a 17-second span of the second period and Scottie Upshall also scored for the Panthers, who had lost seven of their previous eight road games. But Luongo was the biggest reason for the win, especially in the third period when Florida was outshot 29-2 had to kill off four power plays, including 51 seconds of a two-man advantage. San Jose had the extra skater for all but 27 seconds in a span of 7:36 during the middle of the period but couldnt get anything by Luongo. "I havent seen a performance like that in a while," Howden said. "That was impressive. It was tough taking those penalties but you have confidence with the guy back there. He was our best penalty killer tonight." Burns finally broke through on San Joses 26th shot of the period when he knocked a puck past Luongo aftter a faceoff win by Joe Thornton with 3:03 remaining.dddddddddddd. But Luongo robbed Joe Pavelski in the final minute to preserve the win. San Jose has failed to score on 34 of its past 35 power plays at home since Feb. 3, with the only goal coming early in the second period when Havlat beat Luongo with a slap shot from the high slot. "Its not good enough, simple as that," Sharks forward Logan Couture said. "Its on us, the players who go out there and play the big power play minutes, myself included. It needs to be better, it needs to help win us games." The Panthers took over the game after Havlats goal and led 3-1 heading into the third. Pirri changed the tenor of the game on one shift. It started when he raced past Jason Demers and put a shot on goal that Niemi initially saved. But the puck popped in the air and landed behind Niemi, hit his skate and trickled into the net. "Its an opportunity here and, when you get those opportunities, you have to make them count," Pirri said. "We created some speed down the wings and maybe they didnt cover the gap as well as they would have liked. I just shot it." Just seconds later, Pirri got another shot on goal that trickled through Niemi and was sitting in the crease where Howden knocked it in for his third goal in four games this season. The Sharks put on heavy pressure in the closing minutes of the period, but Luongo was up to the task and the Panthers added an insurance goal with 14.8 seconds to play when Pavelski lost the puck near the boards and Joey Crabb slid a pass to Upshall, who beat Niemi with a one-timer. "In the second period, I dont think we used our head," Demers said. "We were working hard, but werent working smart." NOTES: F Jonathan Huberdeau (upper body) did not make the trip for the Panthers. ... Sam Tageson, a teenage hockey player with a life-threatening heart condition, practiced with the Sharks, skated through the shark head before the game and was introduced to a loud ovation before the game as part of a day arranged through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Sharks Foundation.
