The Oilers out-possessed the Sharks at even strength (52.40 corsi-for percentage, score and venue adjusted) and played better hockey over the course of the series. The Oilers will now play Anaheim in the second round. Talbot led the league in minutes played (4294) by almost 500 more than his closest competitor Martin Jones (3800) and was stellar for much of the season.
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. Zinedine Zidane's side do have a game in hand with six matches to play, but Barcelona will be hoping for a momentum shift after Messi ended his run of six Clasico games without a goal.
Her impending return has caused a divide in the tennis world with certain players and ex players ready to welcome her back while others believe she does not deserve the wild cards and should work her way back. "This kind of entry (wild cards) into the tournament should apply to players who dropped in the ranking because of injury, illness or some other random event".
Harden put on a virtuoso performance with 37 points, nine assists and seven rebounds with only two turnovers to make an emphatic statement to open the series.

Game 4 is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Sunday in Oklahoma City . Beverley will not suspended for the incident, the source said. Beverley hit the ground in the first half after attempting a layup and landed at the feet of a fan in the first row.
Give Russ Westbrook credit for his regular-season fete, but LeBron could easily average a triple-double per night if he had to. Three nights after the Pacers lost a 25-point halftime lead, they erased a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit Sunday before falling short in the end.
He was acquitted Friday in a 2012 double killing in the South End that prosecutors said Hernandez committed after one of the men allegedly spilled a drink on him. The Medical Examiner's office released a statement saying the brain was being kept because it was part of the investigation into Hernandez's death and could require further analysis.
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. Some tough calls that we didn't get down the stretch. In Game 1, James Harden has scored 37 points on 13-28 shooting with seven rebounds and nine assists.
The result left Manchester United fifth in the Premier League table but just a point behind fourth-placed Manchester City heading into the crunch clash against Pep Guardiola's side at The Etihad on Thursday night. Ibrahimovic suffered a suspected ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee after landing awkwardly during United's Europa League victory over Anderlecht last Thursday, with the initial prognosis ruling the striker out until January.
Every game in the series was close. James was the ideal candidate to do it. "Competition is very hard", James said. "Tough team, we knew that coming into the series", James told ESPN in the aftermath. James' teams are now 12-0 in the first round, and he hasn't lost a first-round game since 2012. Kyrie Irving scored 28 points on 10-of-25 shooting.
Branden Grace, playing the final group with Chappell, managed only one birdie in a 73 as he finished alongside Villegas in a tie for 10th, while big-hitting Scot Martin Laird endured another frustrating final round after starting the day just two behind the leader.
They also struggle with man-to-man defense. Cleveland went 5-for-8 during the spurt while IN was 0-for-4 with two turnovers. "He's got to learn to control himself and be in the moment", George said. Shumpert picked up a foul guarding George in his first 30 seconds on the floor before knocking down a 3-pointer from the corner, forcing in coach Nate McMillan to call time.
Also causing an upset today was 16 seed Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay, a 6-4, 6-4 victor over 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland. The second-seeded Serb outlasted Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals.
The last time the World Cup was in North America was in 1994, when the US was the lone host. Federation Internationale de Football Association rules now prevent 2026 bidders from Europe and Asia because Russia is staging the World Cup in 2018 and Qatar has the showpiece in 2022.
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. "The game was totally controlled with 11 players, only the decision that made us play with 10 men for the second half and 10 minutes in the first half gave Chelsea a chance to be dominant".
Apologies if this sounds familiar, but Blake Griffin is out for the postseason. This is now the second consecutive year in which Griffin was injured in the first round of the playoffs. Heading into the London Olympics, many were jumping at the chance to see a young star like Griffin take part in the festivities. Paul had broken a bone in his finger, while Griffin had reaggravated his quad injury.
Keitany broke Paula Radcliffe's 12-year women's only marathon record to post two hours and 17 minutes. The 35-year-old, who also has three New York Marathon victories, beat Ethiopian track great Tirunesh Dibaba by nearly a minute. "The last four months have been hell for me - mentally and stuff". "I've also received lots of advice and encouragement from Mary and Florence, so I thank them for that", she said.
That last game was eating away at us and we just tried to get back out there and redeem ourselves. "He does it every day in practice and in the game". Serge Ibaka excelled at center, and his strong defensive first half was a big reason the Raptors stayed in the game. "We have to do a better job with the ball".
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. Zidane's men will be full of confidence after their win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League. He would be the first player to reach that mark with the club.
It is a trip the Senators would rather not have made, but it has to be done and they will get their second opportunity to put away the Bruins after the tough 3-2 double overtime loss on Friday night. CAPITALS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2, OT: Justin Williams scored the overtime victor as Washington beat Toronto in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series.
Initially, Brantley told law enforcement that he was the victim and that the woman had hit him in the face, and that he had simply shoved her, according to 247Sports' Thomas Goldkamp .

The Celtics locked up the number one seed in the NBA's Eastern Conference on Wednesday night defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 112-94 in a gritty, hard-fought game. He will see a lot of resistance in the paint from both Al Horford and Kelly Olynk. The Bulls have been massively unimpressive all season long. Bulls star Jimmy Butler averaged 20.3 points per game in the four games versus Boston but he only shot 36 percent from the field.
Arsenal go up against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday with a chance to book a place in the finals of the FA Cup , with the victor to go up against Chelsea. "I am happy that we have made some progress this season but I can not expect the owners to feel the same way", the City manager says with disarming frankness.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expects a number of clubs to be monitoring Alexis Sanchez's contract situation at Arsenal , while adding the attacker is just one step below Barcelona's Lionel Messi. "It was a very tight game but overall I think we deserved to win the game. With better players. So of course big clubs around the world are going to know his situation", he told United Kingdom newspapers.
After facing the Toffees the Blues host Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge, they beat them 1-0 at the Riverside. Both sides will now turn their attention to the FA Cup - with either Arsenal or Manchester City waiting in the final - and Kane has said that winning the match could also boost Tottenham's chances of winning a first ever Premier League title.
Boston maintained a comfortable edge after that. It was just Thursday afternoon that the Bulls seemed in full control of this first-round series with the Celtics , not only due to their 2-0 lead at the time but also because of how that advantage had been achieved.
However, they almost blew an 18-point lead in the fourth as the Pacers got within four before Cleveland closed it out at the line. The series now moves to Memphis for Game 3 on Thursday. The Pacers are looking to avoid the sweep , as they host the defending champions for Game 3 and 4 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana. "To go up 3-0, makes things a lot more hard for those guys".
The Wild looked as if they pulled the game within one when Martin Hanzal passed a puck to the front of the net and eventually the puck bounced in off St. While Allen was the story, Paajarvi was the hero, scoring his goal in overtime of Game 5 after the Wild twice overcame two-goal deficits to force the extra session.
Certainly Talbot does not bear sole responsibility for the loss because he had no appreciable defensive help. Either way, I'm siding with the Edmonton Oilers simply because they've lost just one home game over the last month and the Sharks aren't exactly the most turstworthy team on the road.
Monaco would win a highly entertaining encounter 3-2 at the Westfalenstadion, but many critics slammed UEFA's approval for the contest to go ahead on such short notice . We are outside of the bus, Marc (Bartra) gets driven away in an ambulance, and we are informed about the decision. Dortmund defiantly vowed not to "give in to terror" after Tuesday's harrowing events, but the home side struggled early and fell behind on 19 minutes, although only after Fabinho missed a rare penalty.
In the battle of the Gasol brothers, Marc is averaging 21.7 points and 5.7 rebounds on 48.9 percent shooting during the series , while Pau is averaging 7.3 points and 5.7 rebounds on 36.4 percent shooting. "We got stops when we needed to, were aggressive when we needed to be and we kept it up for 48 minutes". He's also hitting 100% of his free throws, which is remarkable considering his suspect shooting coming into the league at in the 15 in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft.
That lack of cutting edge is something normally associated with United - an issue they did not have to worry about in the first half at Turf Moor, extending their lead in the 39th minute. Returning captain Wayne Rooney complemented Anthony Martial's 10 million euro strike as Manchester United secured a much-needed victory at Burnley , moving Jose Mourinho's men within a point of Manchester City ahead of this week's derby.
Russell Westbrook notched his second consecutive triple-double to lift the Thunder to a 115-113 win over the Rockets on Friday night. Semaj Christon was used as Russell Westbrook's backup at point guard. "It was a little bit short". But we've got to step up for him. "We'll address it and try to get it better , because we've got to play the whole 48 (minutes) like we did the last 24, and the last two games we have not done that".
His ability to press the opposition defenders, link up the attacking play and create space for his teammates sees him now leading the Reds to next season's Champions League . Joe Gomez could make his first Premier League appearance of the season, having fully recovered from cruciate knee ligament damage suffered in October 2015.
