MILAN - Javier Zanettis last home match at the San Siro was celebrated with a win as Inter Milan beat Lazio 4-1 to all but guarantee a Europa League berth from the Serie A on Saturday. Zanetti will retire after 19 seasons at Inter, and the stadium was sold out as fans packed in to bid farewell to their 40-year-old captain. Lazio threatened to spoil the party when Giuseppe Biava scored the opening goal inside two minutes to stun San Siro. However, Rodrigo Palacio scored twice, either side of Mauro Icardis strike, and Hernanes netted against his former club to secure victory. At the end of the match, footage was shown on the big screens of Zanettis greatest Inter moments, and the clearly emotional player was led out by his family, peers and club presidents, with all his teammates wearing shirts with his number four on it. To chants of "theres only one captain," Zanetti took the microphone and thanked the fans and teammates. "I have always tried to honour and defend the Inter shirt in every country in the world," he said. "I learnt to love it thanks to you, I will love you forever. A very lovely career is coming to an end for me. I dont know what I will do but now one thing is certain: I will defend Inter even off the pitch." Players from across the globe also took to Twitter to pay tribute to Zanetti, including former teammate Mario Balotelli, who wrote, "Javier Zanetti is an example of humanity and professionalism for all of us!" Inter has five points more than Torino and six more than Parma and AC Milan, who all have two matches remaining. It is the same number of points above Hellas Verona, which squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Udinese following a superb goal from Antonio Di Natale. Verona and Inter have only one match remaining. Inter coach Walter Mazzarri was resoundly booed before kickoff when it was revealed Zanetti was starting on the bench. The 20-year-old Mateo Kovacic - who was less than four months old when Zanetti made his Inter debut - set up two of the goals with delightful throughballs. The Inter players hugged Zanetti after every goal, and the Argentine was eventually sent on seven minutes into the second half to a raucous standing ovation. Zanetti was wearing a special captains armband for the occasion. It had the words "Zanetti 4 Ever" in large letters over a background with the name of all his Inter teammates past and present. In Verona, substitute Badu came off the bench with minutes left and drilled in a stoppage-time equalizer for Udinese with a low shot into the corner. Luca Toni put Verona in front from the penalty spot in the 14th minute after Alessandro Agostini was tripped by Allan. It was the veteran strikers 20th league goal of the season. Emil Hallfredsson doubled Veronas lead in the 54th before Di Natale pulled one back two minutes later in stunning fashion. The Udinese forward controlled the ball with his back to goal and swiveled to fire a volley under the bar with his second touch for his 190th Serie A goal. Nike Air Max 95 Sale .

Instead, the Canucks will just be trying to string together back-to-back wins when they visit the Kings on Monday night and are expected to have Alexander Edler back in their line-up for the first time since suffering a knee injury on Dec. 3. To make room for Edler, the team optioned Frank Corrado back to the Utica Comets of the AHL. In six games with the Canucks this season, the 20-year-old defenceman is pointless. These two Pacific Division clubs clashed in Los Angeles on Jan. 4, with the Kings beating the Canucks for the third time in as many meetings this season. The 3-1 decision gave Los Angeles a victory in six of the last nine encounters and in seven of the previous nine played in L.A. Roberto Luongo made 46 saves for the Canucks and played the entire game despite getting crashed into by the Kings Dustin Brown. Luongo, though, has not played since due to an ankle injury suffered on the play. While the Canucks were understandably not happy with Browns tactics, coach John Tortorella wants his club to remain focused ahead of tonights rematch. "We need to play our game," Tortorella told Vancouvers website. "L.A. plays in the blue, thats part of hockey. We need to play in the blue. We need to protect our blue." Though Luongo was able to take partt in practice on Sunday, he is not expected to play tonight.dddddddddddd That means Eddie Lack will get the call and he has started eight of Vancouvers last nine games while Luongo has dealt with two different injuries. Lack made 30 saves in Fridays 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues, while Mike Santorelli and Zac Dalpe scored goals to help snap the Canucks losing streak. "Lack was really good tonight. He made key saves. Its a big win for us," said Tortorella. The Kings began a five-game homestand with the win over the Canucks and have gone 2-1-1 on the stay. That regulation loss came on Saturday, a 3-1 setback to the Detroit Red Wings. Drew Doughty scored the lone goal for the Kings in the first period, while Jonathan Quick turned aside 23-of-26 shots. "I think starting the second period we had several opportunities where we didnt shoot the puck," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Those are really 1-1 games so leaving it until the third there is a chance you are not going to get a reward for a great effort." Los Angeles sent 45 shots on net, including a team-high eight by Mike Richards. He had an assist, but saw his stretch of consecutive games without a goal reach 21. Quick made 27 saves in the Jan. 4 win over the Canucks, while Jeff Carter scored twice. Brown also scored. Quick is 8-10-1 with a 1.93 goals against average in his career versus Vancouver. ' ' '
