Lady Antebellum performed the National Anthem prior to the start of the Nashville Predators vs. St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup Playoffs game at Bridgestone Arena on Sunday afternoon (May 7). And now for the first time this postseason, the pressure is squarely on them. It was the most physical game they had played in the series and the Predators could not overcome.
It was feisty, a Friday feist-night summed up in one first-half statistic: West Ham attempted no fewer than 16 tackles and succeeded in just one of them. We felt that tonight, we felt that against Everton, we felt it against Chelsea in [the 2-1 win in] the EFL Cup in October but you need time to do it week-in-week-out as we used to do at Upton Park".
Curry scored 22 points in three quarters of work as the top-seeded Warriors warmed up in a hurry after a week-long layoff between playoff games, beating the Jazz 106-94 on Tuesday.

As is so often the way in modern football, if a belting goal goes in from a set piece, we can be certain there will be fan footage of the event. Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho (R) talks with Manchester United's English striker Marcus Rashford (L) as they leave the pitch at the end of the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Swansea City at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on April 30, 2017.
The last time the Blues came back to win a series down 3-1 was in 1999. Minus his top two defencemen with Oscar Klefbom and Andrej Sekera out of the line-up, Talbot bounced back after choking away a three-goal lead in 3:16 during game five.

EDMONTON, Alberta Kevin Bieksa and Ondrej Kase appeared back on the Ducks' radar for Game 6 but neither saw the ice when the final lineup decisions were made. Three six-on-five goals. "As we know, sometimes things don't go your way but tonight they went our way". Controversy has followed the Ducks in their last two wins, with goaltending interference calls being at the root of comebacks in those wild contests.
That the Blues were in position for a decisive game in the second round was a bit of a surprise to some who didn't see the club as a playoff contender a couple of months ago. Dmitrij Jaskin scored in his first playoff game this season and Jaden Schwartz got the game-winner, helping the St. Louis Blues stay alive against the Nashville Predators with a 2-1 victory in Game 5 of their second-round series.
And Saturday, Staal and Brendan Smith were on when Brassard tied it as the extra attacker at 18:34. Forty-eight hours later, head coach Guy Boucher and his staff had plenty of tape to go over with their players in preparation for Game 4.
Irving scored 11 straight fourth-quarter points to put the Cavaliers back in front for good. The Raptors shot 47 per cent on the night, and, after connecting on just two three-pointers in Game 3 , went 10-of-29 from long range. Korver, who did not play in the first quarter, was 6 of 8 in the second quarter, including his four 3-pointers. NOTES: Toronto activated C Lucas Nogueira for Game 4 after PG Kyle Lowry (sprained left ankle) was scratched from the lineup.
The Washington Capitals will keep Vezina Trophy victor Braden Holtby as the starter in net when they face the Pittsburgh Penguins for Monday's Game 3, coach Barry Trotz announced Sunday. It's an admirable trait of Holtby's, and the Capitals won't advance if Holtby continues to get outplayed by Fleury in goal. After a Fleury save, the rebound went to T.J.
The victory at the Emirates Stadium keeps sixth-placed Arsenal's hopes of a top-four finish alive, but they remain six points adrift of Manchester City, who now occupy the final Champions League qualifying slot, with one game in hand. I am not enjoying that. "So it's not normal and I really don't care about it". But the best chance of the half fell to Wayne Rooney, who pounced on a defensive error before being denied by Petr Cech .
Tommy Pham's two-run homer in the top of the 14th lifted the Cardinals to a 6-4 win to complete a sweep in Atlanta . Stanton hit a three-run homer off the facade in the second deck in left field in the first inning and hit the windows on the suites in left field with a solo shot in the third.
Louis Blues in game four of the second round of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Bridgestone Arena. He had just one goal in 51 games this season. "He got me into a position where I could be alone with the goalie", Johansen said of Weber.
Yet things would have been a lot closer without Bairstow's late blitz, the Yorkshireman bludgeoning 72 from just 44 balls helping England smash 61 runs from the final four overs and compile what proved to be a match-winning total. Bairstow's hopes of staying in England's one-day team could actually be boosted by the bowling performances of Root, who returned 3-52 as he bowled 10 overs in an ODI for the first time.
The expectation in pre-season was for a sophisticated coach from Europe to arrive at his new Premier League club and drive them to the title. Ancelotti has already wrapped up this season's Bundesliga title for Bayern Munich, while Conte pointed out that his former assistant with the Italy national team, Massimo Carrera, has Spartak Moscow clear at the top of the Russian league.
Oubre said Saturday that he reached out to McCutchen to apologize. Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall, 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a loss of more than 10 points.
The shot he played at Eden Gardens (against Kolkata Knight Riders) wasn't a great shot. The normally flamboyant Manan Vohra (25, 28 balls) also played a subdued knock hitting a six and a four. It was deja vu for Kings XI Punjab, as yet another 60-ball 104 from Hashim Amla went in vain as it slumped to a six-wicket loss to Gujarat Lions.
Hence, it looks like the Browns have opted to keep their first overall selection come draft day where Garrett will be their obvious pick. The two quarterbacks speculatively "traded" most often to Cleveland for some combination of the Browns' draft picks have been backups Jimmy Garoppolo of the New England Patriots and AJ McCarron of the Cincinnati Bengals.
The draw saw Liverpool's top-four hopes briefly slip out of its hands but Manchester United's defeat at Arsenal meant Klopp's side again control their destiny. "So, hard to manage it but I think, in principle, the team was good, was organised, played to win and defended well". For Arsenal , they remain in sixth but will still harbour hopes of closing an eight-point gap on Manchester City in fourth with four games of the league season to play for Wenger's men.
Kisner pitched in for eagle at the 18th during the final round to join Brown and Blixt on 27 under and take the tournament to extra holes, with the play-off beginning at the par-five last. As impressive as Smith's partnership was with Blixt, his composure, team ethos and super short game stood out even more . Seeing how he plays golf, the sky is the limit for him.
United still had a strong side despite making eight changes from their Europa League semi-final first leg against Celta Vigo but Mourinho's unblemished record against Wenger never looked like remaining intact. Because I don't think the others, playing one match per week and being in a great situation, are going to blow it. It's a confidence-boosting win for Arsenal , who were demoralized by Tottenham in the North London Derby last time out.
The 51-year-old Daly had not won on tour since the PGA Tour's 2004 Buick Invitational. "It's not a familiar place I'm in". Walking up the final hole, Daly had a two-shot lead and could win with a two-putt from 60 feet. Daly had the 36 hole lead after firing a 65 on Saturday. "It was a good battle", Perry said. Jerry Smith was another stroke behind after a 66. Daly, who finished Sunday's final round with three straight bogeys, held on to his 54-hole lead over Kenny Perry, who owns ...
Granada interim manager Tony Adams says he "will not go away" after failing to keep his side in the top flight this season.

"We still haven't won anything", Zidane said.
Arsenal's win has seen them remain in sixth place in the Premier League table, but they are still 14 points and four places below Tottenham.

Arsenal moved two points behind fifth-place United with a game in hand, and is seven points behind third-placed Liverpool having played two games fewer and six behind fourth-placed Manchester City having played one game fewer.

The Portugal forward again proved the man for the big occasion yesterday morning as holders Real moved within touching distance of another Champions League final appearance. We are very motivated and want to go the final.

Louis Blues put the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final for the first time in their 18-year franchise history. "You still don't trust me?" "Bad", Kuznetsov said of his angle on the shot. So when Getzlaf found the puck and a sliver of space on the boards in the second overtime of a crucial playoff game Friday night, Perry's feet moved before his thoughts.
Sano and Boyd both were ejected . Jimenez made five relief appearances for Toledo this season before his call-up and did not allow a run in five innings of work.

Manchester City rising-star Kelechi Iheanacho must leave the north west giants this summer if he is to further his career after being mistreated by Pep Guardiola, according to his agent. "What he does to keep the ball means there is nearly no chance to get the ball from him". So too young frontmen Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus , who punished the Palace defence with their pace and trickery.
Arsenal were the better side and fully deserved the three points. "So, we have to be human with the players, we have to be sensible and common sense in relation to our situation in the Premier League, and I think the last match against Swansea was last our last chance to fight for top four, so I am going to rest players, sure".
As Jamie McMurray charged up the middle to take second place from Busch, Stenhouse held the top spot through the final two corners and the tri-oval to beat McMurray to the checkered flag by.095 seconds. The nose of Allmendinger's auto launched Elliott's into the air, and his vehicle landed on the hood of Joey Logano's Ford. Elliott rode along the wall pinned to Logano while Almendinger shot out of the mess and began tumbling down the track .
Not getting out of here. But you just have people, and everybody is not the same. The pitch from Sale was low, around Machado's knees, certainly a factor in MLB's decision. "Go look at my home runs", Machado said, per ESPN . That prompted an epic and totally not-suitable-for-work postgame rant from Machado, who dropped 12 F-bombs in about 90 seconds.
