    BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona paid 13. Paul Hornung Jersey .55 million euros (US$18.6 million) to Spanish tax authorities on Monday to cover any potential irregularities in its signing of Neymar, all the while maintaining its innocence of the fraud charges levied against it. The Spanish champion said in a statement it had paid the "complimentary" amount to cover any "eventual interpretations that could come out of the contracts signed relating to the transfer of Neymar. Meanwhile we are convinced of the legality of our initial fulfilment relating to our tax obligations." Barcelonas actions take the price of Neymars transfer to more than 100 million euros ($138 million) after the Catalan club initially said it had paid 57.1 million euros ($74 million) for the Brazil forward. That sum does not include bonus payments made by Barcelona or the 22-year-olds salary, meaning his total cost likely exceeds the record-breaking 100 million euros-plus spent by rival Real Madrid on Gareth Bale last summer. Spanish tax authorities had charged Barcelona with fraud on Thursday, alleging it swindled the state of 9.1 million euros ($12.5 million) through payments to varying companies and false contracts. Barcelona said it had "scrupulously" met its financial obligations in signing the player from Brazilian club Santos and it would continue to work with the state authority in the matter. Neymars signing forced the resignation of Sandro Rosell as president last month, after one club members petition to learn more about the intricate details of what has become a club-record signing were kept in the dark. Rosell has preached financial prudence while signing lucrative sponsorship deals that have put advertising on the front of Barcelonas jersey for the first time in the history of an institution that considers itself "more than a club" and a symbol of Catalan values. Rosell is being investigated by the same Spanish court that laid the fraud charges against the club. Of the initial transfer fee, Brazilian club Santos received 17.1 million euros ($23 million) while Neymars father, who also goes by Neymar, earned 40 million euros ($55 million). Barcelona said the decision to make the payment came after an emergency board meeting on Sunday. Kentrell Brice Jersey .

I see myself as a guy that can compete against the guys that are there. At the same time, theres a lot of guys having a strong season right now. For me, its more important to get the results right now.Chris Kreider scored one goal and set up Martin St. Louis for another for the Rangers, who have 13 wins in 14 games for the first time since 1973.

At the same point, its just three wins.Melker Karlsson joined Jeff Friesen as the only Sharks rookies to score goals in five straight games when he converted on the power play in the third period. Antti Niemi made 28 saves.Even the return of Joe Thornton couldnt help the Sharks, who were coming off a second 7-2 loss to St. Louis in a six-day span.

Boyle got a bloody nose on his opening shift and had to go to the locker room.

It was just a minute long, but thats going to stay with me for a lifetime.The Rangers took nearly 10 minutes to get their first shot on goal, but still ended up ahead 2-0 after the first period when they scored after faceoffs in the offensive zone.Kreider set up the first when he tapped a loose puck to St. Louis, who knocked it in from the slot to make it 1-0.Later in the period, Kreider tipped a shot by Dan Girardi on goal after a faceoff win by Stepan and then tapped in the rebound.NOTES: Nash and Sharks D Brent Burns were picked for the All-Star game. ...
