REGINA -- "Struggling" is an adjective that is not generally applied to the Montreal Alouettes, but there is no doubt the perennial powerhouse has fallen on hard times this CFL season. The Alouettes are off to a 2-4 start, and now go on the road to face a Saskatchewan Roughrider team looking to avenge its first loss of the season. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 4pm et/1pm pt. "It doesnt sit well with anybody," veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo told reporters Friday. "We are just not accustomed to being 2-4. Its very disturbing." Normally, this is the time of year when general manager Jim Popp would be touring NFL camps in search of import talent. Instead, he is on the sidelines as a replacement for fired head coach Dan Hawkins, trying to return the team to its former winning ways. "Its an evaluation as much as anything," said Popp, who considers himself a "transition" coach. "And it seems like its going in the right direction." Calvillo is convinced that the talent is there and he says the players have confidence in the coaching staff. "Its part of the cycle, part of football life," he said of the teams current woes, adding that he, personally, is determined to fight his way through it. "Im not a quitter." As scenarios go, Mosaic Stadium is not the ideal environment for a team that is sputtering as opposed to streaking. Popp knows that road games are a challenge at the best of times, and Ridervile in particular is "a very tough place" to play. The Roughriders announced a sellout crowd of 40,637 will take in Saturdays game. Calvillo has always loved competing in Saskatchewan, owing to the energized and energizing atmosphere created by the hometown fans. "At the same time," he said, "we have a job to do." For their part, the Roughriders are downplaying last weeks 42-27 loss to the Stampeders that ended their bid at a perfect season. "On defence, we could have done a lot more things, we know that," linebacker Craig Butler said. "This defence takes a lot of pride in everything we do. Well bounce back." Added defensive back Dwight Anderson: "This has been a great week in practice. Im looking forward to (Saturdays) game." Slotback Geroy Simon says he holds the Alouettes defence in high regard, particularly the teams secondary. "Theyre a veteran group and they play aggressively," he said. "I think weve just got to execute, thats all. We have to keep the ball out of (Calvillos) hands. We need to come up with first downs." Quarterback Darian Durant says the Roughriders are ready to move on from last weeks loss. "Definitely, the guys are a lot more motivated," he said. "(Last week) was a wake-up call for us and wake-up calls are good. We have to make sure we dont look behind us. We have to look ahead." By "looking ahead," Durant does not mean looking past the Alouettes. Indeed, he has been cautioning his teammates not to judge Montreal on its record. "We cant take them lightly," he said. "They have weapons all over the place." Although they have never been teammates, Durant has always admired Calvillo, for his ability to read defences and his penchant for building close relationships with his receivers. By observing Calvillo, he has also learned "how to be a pro." As recently as Friday, Saskatchewan head coach Corey Chamblin discussed with his players the importance of regaining that "winning attitude." He has dismissed the loss in Calgary as simply being one of those things. "It wasnt our night," he said. Nike LunarGlide 4 Pink UK . There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal.

Conditions were cool and overcast for both runs, although the rain stayed away on the 7-kilometre (4.3-mile) Spa track -- the longest on the calendar. Times were faster in the afternoon, with Hamilton completing 26 laps and clocking a best lap of 1 minute, 49.189 seconds -- more than half a second faster than Rosberg, who stayed out for two laps longer. The F1 championship resumed this weekend following a summer break, with Rosberg leading Hamilton by just 11 points. The Briton leads Rosberg 5-4 in race wins this season, but has retired from two races. Two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso was third quickest both times in his Ferrari. Four-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel sat out the second session because of a power unit failure due to an electrical probllem in the morning, where he finished nearly two seconds behind Rosberg in 11th.dddddddddddd The red flag came up twice in the afternoon session. Venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado lost control of his Lotus and Mexican Esteban Gutierrez stalled his Sauber. Vettel, who finished second in qualifying at the Hungarian GP last month, could not even get his Red Bull out of the garage. It has been a miserable season so far for the German driver, with only two podium finishes and no pole positions. He has retired from three races and is down in sixth place overall. Quite a contrast to last year, when his victory in Spa was the first of nine straight wins. But this campaign has seen him lag behind teammate Daniel Ricciardo, who has won two races since switching from Toro Rosso in the off-season and is third in the standings -- although he trails Hamilton by 60 points. Rosberg clocked 1:51.577 seconds in the morning and Hamilton, the 2008 champion, managed a best of 1:51.674.
