So it's the Leafs who head to the USA capital while the Bruins travel to Canada's. (Hurts for them, too, not to make light of their injuries.) Two top-four defensemen out to start the playoffs throws a huge wrench into the B's systems play.
This [targeting players] is a thing that takes place in professional football I believe is completely unjust and undeserved. "Obviously we all need to improve but to single out players and blame them for defeats I think is lamentable".

The league put out a statement saying it will not stop the 2017-18 season to allow players to participate in the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The Washington Capitals superstar on Tuesday reiterated his intention to represent Russian Federation next February, calling the league's decision a "bluff".
Juventus right-back Dani Alves should be useful on and off the field against Barcelona, having played for the Spanish giants from 2008 to 2016. And asked if Barca would be able to produce a similar turnaround against Massimiliano Allegri's side, Zoff said: "I don't think so".
United States captain Jim Courier originally nominated Sam Querrey as one of his doubles players but had telegraphed the possibility of a late change, which he made by summoning Sock - the top-ranked player in the tie at No.15 in the world - an hour before play.

Olivier Giroud curled in a fantastic third after being picked out by fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Elneny does not possess the same intelligence in possession but, in tandem with Xhaka, he was able to inject sufficient tempo into this performance to help secure three precious points.
It was a day that saw Rory McIlroy tread water with a 71 and, perhaps most significantly of all, Jordan Spieth continue his recovery from his Thursday calamity on the 15th to lurk just two behind the lead.

Since Molina's major league debut in 2004, St. Louis has made nine playoff appearances and won two World Series titles. Even as Jason Heyward and Chris Coghlan were intentionally walked, I couldn't shake the top of the inning and how the Cubs had lost the lead in such typical Cubs fashion.
Jason Day got some important instructions after his very bad start to the Masters, and he used it to calm himself and play the kind of golf expected from the third-ranked player in the world.

Scherzer (1-0) allowed two runs and four hits, striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings. He held the Cubs to six hits and two walks while allowing just one run - a solo homer to Ben Zobrist in the second inning.

It was certainly competitive, but with both teams' tough defenses locking up the main offensive options, the game turned into a foul-laden slog rather than a shootout. "I felt like Joel was due for something big", Hicks said. In case you missed it (note: you're lucky if you missed the middle 10 minutes of the second half), here's how it all went down in Glendale, Arizona on Monday night.
Manager Craig Shakespeare said: "He won't be ready for Wednesday". Any Barkley admirers would have been encouraged by his performance on Sunday, though he was not alone in impressing in a blue shirt. "We didn't come to try to get a point, the team was picked to try to get three points ". By rotating his team so much, Shakespeare showed he was looking at the bigger picture rather than any personal glory with a midweek trip to Atletico looming.
And what I needed to do. "What he said, he mentioned just that you know what you have to do, just believe in yourself". "I didn't shoot any nine-hole scores that were in the 40s", he said. So I have plenty more looks, and I feel good about it happening. I really stepped up. I felt in control until the end. "I feel motivated for the summer, and I will be moving on and setting goals very quickly after this".

Sunderland manager David Moyes attributed defeat to referee Craig Pawson's controversial decision to send off Black Cats midfielder Sebastian Larsson for a studs-up tackle shortly before half-time. Ibrahimovic, 35, won the Serie A title under Mourinho at Inter Milan in 2009 and says the Portuguese has lost none of his intensity.

Despite having the lion's share of possession, United struggled to create goal-scoring chances early in the match.

Atletico remain in third place after the draw, although just a point ahead of Sevilla in fourth, who beat Deportivo 4-2. In this sense, history dictates that Real will have more than a tough time taking the three points against their stubborn opponents and no doubt Simeone will have a plan up his sleeve.
Asked whether he was anxious about the effect of withdrawing Alexander-Arnold and Woodburn so early on their confidence, Klopp said: Yeah usually I would be but we have such a close relationship. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Liverpool , with this win, remain third in the English Premier League table. "Simon Mignolet saved our life".
Frieder expected to stay with the Wolverines through the NCAA Tournament, but athletic director Bo Schembechler famously proclaimed, "A MI man is going to coach MI", and immediately installed Fisher as the head coach.

Memorable duels between playing partners in the closing round of a major championship don't happen very often. He did it to win the U.S. Open in 2013 and last summer when he captured an Olympic gold medal in Rio. Two holes at Augusta National were key on this Sunday, too.

Sale walked the former and took on the latter. Don't look now, but Boston Red Sox catcher Sandy Leon has delivered in the early part of the 2017 season. It feels good when you're able to do that. Once the festivities are finished, the Cubs will send Jon Lester to the mound against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost to Chicago in the NL Championship Series a year ago.
On Monday night at the team's home opener, they will raise a banner commemorating the 2016 World Series championship.
