    PHILADELPHIA -- All Keenan Reynolds wanted was to beat Army. Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Reynolds ran for 136 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Midshipmen to a 34-7 victory Saturday, their 12th straight in the series. "Its hard to beat anybody 12 times in a row," coach Ken Niumatalolo said. "But to beat your rivals, Im very proud of them." Reynolds scored on runs of 47 yards, 11 yards and 1 yard. The sophomore has 29 rushing touchdowns, breaking the single-season mark for a quarterback previously held by Ricky Dobbs (Navy, 2009) and Collin Klein (Kansas State, 2011), both of whom had 27. "Coming into the game, I wasnt too concerned about the record. If I broke it, I broke it. If not, oh well," Reynolds said. "My main concern was trying to get the W. If that involved me getting zero touchdowns and everyone else having a field day, I was good with that." It didnt work that way at all. Reynolds ran 30 times for on a frozen, snow-covered field. He also caught a 2-point conversion pass on a trick play following his second touchdown. His third score -- with 46 seconds left in a lopsided game -- gave him 176 points for the season, breaking the school record of 174 set by Bill Ingram in 1917. "The thought did come across my mind to take a knee," Niumatalolo said. "But then my thoughts went to, I have a kid that has a chance to break a record thats hard to come by." Navy (8-4) won the Commander-In-Chiefs Trophy for the second consecutive season and ninth time in 11 years. The trophy is awarded to the service academy with the most victories in games between Navy, Army and Air Force. The Midshipmen havent lost to Army since 2001 and lead the series 58-49-7. Navys 12-game run is the longest in the history of the rivalry that began in 1890. "Ive got a lot of good friends on that side," Niumatalolo said. "Theyve got great kids over there. They go through what our kids go through. But ultimately, Ive got to think about our team." Niumatalolo became the second coach in Navy history to start his coaching career 6-0 against Army, matching Paul Johnson (2002-07). The Midshipmen will conclude their season in the Armed Forces Bowl against Middle Tennessee State on Dec. 30. Army (3-9) fumbled five times and was intercepted once in its fifth straight defeat. Embattled coach Rich Ellerson fell to 0-5 against the Midshipmen and 20-41 overall since taking the job in December 2008. "You turn the ball over against a good football team, you give up big plays on defence, you take some big hits in the penalty game against a good football team, dont be surprised if the score gets upside down," Ellerson said. Ellersons job could be in jeopardy, and he knows it. "Thats not my call," Ellerson said. "Obviously, in the body of work, weve made some progress. But I wasnt brought in to make progress. I was brought in to win some football games and beat Navy. Ive lost to our rival five times." The snow that was forecast in the morning hours began during the pregame pageantry that makes this game a one-of-a-kind spectacle. The snow, along with the freezing temperatures, created an uncomfortable setting for those in the packed stadium. Many of them left after the first half, which ended with Navy up 17-0. Making his first college start, Army quarterback A.J. Schurr lost the handle on the wet football with his arm cocked to throw. Teammate Larry Dixon recovered, but the 20-yard loss doomed the Black Knights to end their first possession with a punt. Schurr fumbled on the next drive, too, and this time Navy recovered at its own 38. That ended his day. "If youre struggling to hold onto the ball, that will get you out of there," Ellerson said. Following the turnover, Quinton Singleton burst through a hole in the middle and ran 58 yards to the Army 4, setting up a field goal for a 3-0 lead late in the first quarter. Angel Santiago came in at quarterback for the Black Knights at just about the same time the intensity of the snow increased. On fourth-and-3 at the Navy 33, Terry Baggett lost three yards. Midway through the second period, Noah Copeland ran 39 yards for a touchdown to make it 10-0. With 2:38 left in the half, Reynolds gingerly picked his way through the Army defence on his record-tying touchdown run. In the third quarter, the snow turned to rain and Santiago did his best to make a game of it. After throwing a 29-yard pass to Xavier Moss, the junior quarterback scored on a 4-yard run to get the Black Knights to 17-7. Reynolds answered with an 11-play drive that produced a field goal. Army then failed to convert a fourth-and-3 from its own 42, a futile gamble that all but assured the Black Knights another frustrating loss against their far more successful service academy rivals. Reynolds scored his record-breaking touchdown with 6:22 left, and the conversion pass from wide receiver Brendan Dudeck made it 28-7. Chris Archer Jersey Trevor Plouffe Jersey .28 for a combined time of 1:14.70, also an Olympic record. Lee won the gold medal, defending her title from the Vancouver Games.DALLAS -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff was thinking about a shootout even before his club faced the undefeated San Jose Sharks. Ruff had the idea that if the game was forced to a tiebreaker, he would use rookie Alex Chiassson as one of his first three shooters. The opportunity presented itself and paid off immediately as Chiasson was the only player to score in the shootout, lifting the Stars to a 4-3 victory on Thursday night. "Before the game we knew he was going to be number two or three," Ruff said. "He had a goal in the shootout during the preseason (against Florida). "Chaisser took me off the hook with that one." The Sharks are no longer perfect, but with the Colorado Avalanche losing at home to Detroit, San Jose is the only NHL team without a regulation defeat this season. The Stars improved to 3-3, and the Sharks fell to 6-0-1, one game shy of tying their best mark of 7-0, established last season. "Its not about the streak," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "Its about living for today. Were disappointed we didnt get the two points. We probably didnt play well enough." Chiasson was the only one of the six skaters to score in the shootout, beating Antti Niemi by firing a shot just inside the right post. "I always like to come with speed," Chiasson said. "I think it shows the goalie youve got a couple moves if youre coming fast. I just got my head up and let it go." Chiasson is Dallas leader with four goals in six games this season. He has 10 goals in 13 career NHL games. The Stars outshot San Jose 31-29 in regulation. The Sharks took all five shots in overtime but couldnt beat Dan Ellis even though Dallas was short-handed for the final 1:02 of overtime. "You had to make a good read and try to stay big, try to stay patient and force them to shoot," Ellis said of his shootout strategy. San Jose, which scored eight power-play goals in its first six games, was 0 for 5 against Dallas. The game hadnt started anywhere near as well for the Stars, who came back from one-goal deficits three times. San Jose took a 1-0 lead just 9 seconds into the game. Off the opening faceoff, Tyler Kennedy skated along the right wing and shot the puck past Ellis for his first goal this season. "Its a tough start," Ruff said. "I lliked the fact that we dug in and were able to keep coming at them. Ben Zobrist Jersey. Its a sign of a team with a will to win." Ellis took the blame for the quick strike. "Its not a goal that you want to let in," he said. "I need to be a little sharper in those first few minutes to give ourselves a chance to get our feet under us." Dallas tied it on Tyler Seguins rebound goal at 16:44. His third goal extended his point streak to five games. The tie lasted barely a minute as the Sharks took a 2-1 lead when Matthew Nieto skated to the top of the slot and fired a shot off the right post and in at 17:52. The Stars Cody Eakin and his line with Chiasson and Ray Whitney tied it for the second and third times, in the second period. At 1:53, Trevor Daley scored his first goal this season on a rebound of Eakins shot. Eakin scored his second goal to make it 3-3 at 12:58. "Its tough," Sharks captain Joe Thornton said, "especially when you score a goal and they come back and score on the next shift. Just try to continue the momentum, and we didnt do that." Daley was involved in another goal at 12:31 of the period when San Joses Patrick Marleau attempted a wraparound. The play was first ruled a save by Ellis. A review showed that the puck had gone off Daleys skate and across the goal line. The goal was the sixth this season for Marleau. He and Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby are the only NHL players with at least one point in all seven games played. The Sharks had entered the game averaging better than 41 shots per game and allowing fewer than 24. "This is great for us," Chiasson said of the victory. "Weve been playing up and down throughout the year. Hopefully we can keep that momentum going into this weekend." Niemi has played every minute in goal for the Sharks this season. NOTES: Kennedys goal was the fastest recorded against the Stars franchise during its 47 seasons in Minnesota and Dallas. The earliest goal in San Joses 22 seasons was by Stephane Matteau 8 seconds into a game against St. Louis on Jan. 11, 2000. ... Sharks RW Adam Burish, a seven-year NHL veteran, had back surgery in Los Angeles to correct a disc problem. ... Ray Whitneys two second-period assists gave him nine during a six-game point streak (all assists) against the Sharks.
