We congratulate them and now we try to fight for the Premier League, to try to catch them. "Now we will try to be calm, watch the game again and try to improve".

Every game could have went either way. Game 5 between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins saw the two teams go to double overtime. After winning Game 1, Boston lost three in a row before forcing a fifth game with a double-overtime victory on Friday night.
But their profligacy proved their undoing and Palace punished them, with Benteke providing Jurgen Klopp a costly reminder of his talents with the winning goal 16 minutes from time, giving Allardyce's side a huge boost and leaving Liverpool's top four hopes a little less certain.
Yohan Cabaye laid the ball on a plate for Benteke and the Belgian smashed home from close range. Benteke spared his blushes, and embarrassed his former employers, by stooping to head in a corner - needlessly conceded when Lovren gave away possession on halfway - five yards out with 16 minutes to go.

No, the Senators weren't ideal by any stretch of the imagination in Game 2 when they erased a two-goal deficit to help set up defenceman Dion Phaneuf's game-winning goal, but they took steps in the right direction and the message from coach Guy Boucher on Sunday was that there are still areas the club needs to work on.
The hot-headed Los Blancos captain lumbered in from nowhere with a two-footed lunge at Lionel Messi 13 minutes from time with Real Madrid 2-1 down.

It had scored 65 points by Friday's halftime a game after going for 68 by the break. I see Harden and the Rockets taking it in five games due to the strength that Houston has compared to OKC.

Chelsea , on the other hand, just need to forget that this afternoon ever happened. Ashley Young believes that Manchester United's dominant win against Premier League leaders Chelsea had been coming but now wants more of the same.

Messi's double took his goals in this fixture to 22 and set a new El Clasico LaLiga record of 16, eclipsing the mark of former Real great Alfredo Di Stefano.
