KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia - Michael Janyk's last World Cup race went so well, he almost had to postpone his retirement for a week.
The Canadian slalom skier was 2.67 seconds off on Sunday before clocking the fastest second-run time and finishing in 15th.
The result left him seven slalom ranking points short of qualifying for the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, where only the top-25 racers of each discipline are allowed to start.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - When Tommy Wingels scored a fluky, short-handed goal in the opening minutes, it was clear this was going to be San Jose's night.
Wingels scored two goals and Antti Niemi shut Montreal out for the second time this season in the Sharks' 4-0 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night.
Wingels opened the scoring with a short-handed goal after Peter Budaj misplayed a shot from centre ice and added another on a deflection to lead the way for the Sharks.

FRISCO, Texas - Even without its offensive centrepiece, the Montreal Impact's offence seemed quite healthy in its MLS season opener.
The defence, however, was another matter.
Though they generating scoring chances in bunches — even with 2013 leading scorer Marco Di Vaio watching from a box — the Impact couldn't overcome its shaky defence in a 3-2 loss to FC Dallas on Saturday night at Toyota Stadium.
