By then they should have starting goaltender Frederik Andersen back in the crease, which will provide a huge boost. Asked on Sunday if Andersen had any concussion symptoms, Babcock said: "No symptoms". Not much changed during the early parts of the second period. "You want to gain home ice and match up who you play best against". Toronto's weakest position all season has been defence, and losing Zaitsev for even one playoff game would be devastating, but Babcock said he was "not" concerned ...

The win at Augusta did not come easy for Garcia. That's why I don't want to spend too much time on Garcia. "I thought I had it on 18 (in regulation)". "Obviously I'm 37. I'm not 22 or 25 any more, but I feel I still have a lot of great years in me and I'm excited for those", he told Golf Digest. "If there was anyone to lose to it would be Sergio".

After Vettel won the first race in Australia and Lewis Hamilton the second in China, it became clear to everyone that the two would fight it out for drivers' championship. Vettel was braver on the brakes and passed Hamilton around the outside. One explanation was high tire pressures at the start of the race, with a generator failure causing Bottas to start with the wrong pressures, but the Finn says that problem only hurt him until his first pit stop.

It also helped end Bayern's 16-match winning streak at home. "I hope there is another double in the Bernabeu". "However, we're happy and satisfied to have got a win here, which is always very important". But the reality of this Real Madrid team is that they've always been about seizing the moment more than dominating games. "I thought it was going to be a difficult match before going on the pitch, that Bayern would go hard in the game", the forward said.

His foot speed and the quickness of his changes of direction enabled Wall to create layups, open pull-ups, and wide-open treys (although one of his misses from beyond the arc was a 35-foot heave to beat the shot clock). Note that charting a game is as much of an art as is a science, so it may not perfectly reflect some stats you might see at or, but my intention was to take the most objective approach I could in my effort.

With the Rangers' J.T. Miller off on a delay of game penalty for a faceoff infraction, the Canadiens started pressing on their first power play of the game. So yeah, there's obvious some concern with the officiating in this game and series overall. Few aspects are black and white. To make matters worse, they've been outscored 18-3 during that stretch.

The Senators should have put it away long before it got to that stage, but neither team could get the victor in the third so they were forced to do the extra work for the second straight game to determine which team would take advantage in the series .

Zidane declined to say whether he had any favoured opponent in Friday's semifinal draw, when his side are in the pot alongside local rivals Atletico Madrid and either Barcelona or Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund or Monaco. Ramos almost put the hosts ahead after the otherwise superb Manuel Neuer spilled a shot, but Boateng somehow blocked his effort on the line. The half-time whistle brought some respite to proceedings on the field, although the Bayern fans were involved in a minor clash with ...

Every year for the last five years, Thompson has expended the team's No. 1 draft pick on a defensive player. Sitting slumped in a chair at Toronto's practice facility on Sunday, still dealing with flu-like symptoms, a despondent-looking Lowry said he was struggling to ditch the disappointment of his latest playoff stinker.

After each Raptors playoff game, Mitch Robson will take you through a pivotal moment on which the game hinged. Antetokounmpo scored seven points for Milwaukee .

Henrik Lundqvist made 54 saves and was stellar in defeat. Outside of that one blemish, it was a suffocating performance from the Canadiens. "We can't afford any weak links and we didn't have any tonight". With Montreal leading 1-0, the Rangers' Mats Zuccarello was whistled for a double-minor for high-sticking 4:07 into the third. The trio was especially effective against the Rangers' third line of Michael Grabner , Kevin Hayes , and J.T.

Obviously, Edmonton Oilers fans are great. While Eberle is a goal-scorer first, the Oilers are going to need him to continue playing hard at both ends of the rink. "We really locked it down once we got that first goal". "I don't even think we led for more than five minutes in that whole series". David Schlemko committed a costly turnover in front of the net to give Zack Kassian the easy goal for the Oilers.

However, this year's Golden State team is different. It's Playoff SZN, everybody-LET'S GET TO IT. Second round I feel much better about. Winning an NBA-record 73 games during the regular season previous year was basically rendered irrelevant in the wake of the stunning playoff collapse, and several Warriors players are still reeling from the defeat.

This was a huge win for Boston , not just because any win in a playoff series is important, but also because a whole bunch of Bruins were playing in their first-ever post-season game, and didn't let the moment overwhelm them. He's played in 90 career playoff games - winning a Stanley Cup with Boston in 2011 - and was signed for his experience and leadership. The New York Rangers spent the last month or so of the season, how shall we say, attempting to massage their record so they could ...

In the first inning alone, Wright gave up six runs and two homers. Manager Buck Showalter knew the Orioles were disappointed in their 8-1 loss in the first game of the series April 11. "Not at all.

Games 3 and 4 at the Air Canada Centre start at $199 - and those are standing room only. "It's usually Morgan [Rielly]", Matthews said. Also, Columbus' recent struggles have me thinking they're a lot closer to a 40-win team than they are to a 50-win team.

It was only five years ago when Sergio Garcia stood outside the clubhouse at the Augusta National Golf Club after shooting a third-round 75 and told Spanish-speaking reporters he didn't have the game to win a major championship. "The emotion when the putt went in on the extra hole was hard to describe", added Garcia. "But you know, I was like, well, if that's what's supposed to happen, let it happen", he said.

Yoenis Cespedes became the first member of the Mets to have multiple three-homer games for the team. He gave up six runs on eight hits before a visit from the Phillies trainer with one out in the third and a 3-2 count on Travis d'Arnaud. The Mets have won 28 of 40 games against the Phillies since the start of the 2015 season. "It's satisfying to keep the team in the ballgame and win, but you don't want first innings (like that)".

In Mike D'Antoni's high-octane offense, Harden's assists skyrocketed from 7.5 per game last season to 11.2 this year. The Westbrook supporters point to the box score and the point guard's incredible triple-double average , something that hasn't been done in 50 years.

But Garcia didn't need to two-putt his final hole. What he did not have, after two decades of trying, was a major title to show for it. Up until then, the long-running duel between Garcia and Rose seemed bound to end badly for the Spaniard.

Most notably the Senators will likely be without star defenceman Erik Karlsson, who suffered a foot injury Tuesday and missed Thursday's game. Both Boucher and Cassidy have limited postseason coaching experience. “Once the playoff starts its a new series and a new season, ” captain Erik Karlsson said about the possibility of facing Boston on Saturday. Anderson stopped Drew Stafford , who scored Boston's only regulation goal, and Ryan Spooner before straddling the goalpost to turn away ...

A month later he finished second in the US PGA Championship at the age of 19, but had since recorded a further 21 top-10 finishes without claiming a maiden major title. Tied going to the back nine, Garcia immediately fell two shots behind with wild shots into the pine straw bed under the trees. Or perhaps he was thinking of the 7-footer at the 17th, the one he just didn't hit hard enough, resulting in a bogey that sent him to the 72nd hole tied with Garcia.

Per Basketball Reference, he's the first player ever listed under 6-foot-7 to average double-digit rebounds. The Nuggets offense has been one of the league's most potent since after their game against the Thunder in January. Last year Mark Cuban even went as far to say that Russell Westbrook is not a superstar. While Westbrook may be essential to his team, deeming the sixth seed successful is a stretch.

You're going to have to settle for bogeys here and there. That s what it takes to win. "You don't need to come out and shoot 65 the first day but you're better off shooting something under par". "There would be nothing better than winning a green jacket", McGirt told The Robesonian. Day broke down in tears on the 18th green following his victory at Whistling Straits and predicted an even more intense reaction if he can follow in the footsteps of compatriot Adam Scott and claim a green jacket.

I understand the challenges aheadI also understand that it can be pretty fun trying to attack something and do something at a high level. It's easily Romo, just like he will be a better broadcaster than the aforementioned quarterback. All anybody could think was, "Where is Romo? ". Another one to keep an eye on is Jerry Jones himself with the family making the push to do it now that he's in the Hall of Fame.

Carolina shot 35 percent from the field, a percentage point worse than it did in Saturday's semifinal win over OR, which stood, for two days, as their worst shooting night in a tournament win since 1967. This time, there was no last-second heartbreak for North Carolina. SC almost managed to complete a legendary comeback, but fell short in a close four-point loss to send Mark Few and Gonzaga to the national championship game.
