While Fleury struggled for the first time against the Capitals, Vezina Trophy finalist Braden Holtby had his best game of the series, stopping 20 of the 22 shots he faced.

Defensemen Dan Girardi (121) and Marc Staal (103) have both played in more than 100 postseason games, and center Derek Stepan (96) and defenseman Ryan McDonagh (95) in almost 100.
Juventus will be waiting for the victor of the other semi-finals clash between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the grand finale at Cardiff on June 3rd.

Asked if he understood Perez's frustrations during a press conference held before the trip to St Mary's, an apologetic Wenger was quoted as saying by football.london: "Yes of course. I am blamed for decisions I have not made. "All these teams are ready with fantastic managers and great players and none of them are in the second half of the table".
Down but not out, the Washington Capitals pushed anxiety aside. "That was one of those moments where we could have just wilted - even in Game 5 we could have easily just packed it in - and said, 'Man, this ain't going well.' But we just kept playing and kept playing, and here we are".
Make no mistake: James is still That Dude. Wall and Porter each had one steal and Morris had two. The starters could buy a three, and Washington probably shouldn't expect that Bogdanovic hits 4 triples again, so this might be a slight concern going forward.
Game 1: Raptors at Cavaliers, 4 p.m. The Clippers were led by DeAndre Jordan's 24 points and 17 rebounds.

Smelling blood, Klitschko came back with a right hook in the sixth to knock Joshua down for the first time in his career, with the Watford-born fighter struggling to stay in the fight. Klitschko was bidding to become a three-time world heavyweight champion like his older brother, Vitali, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis and Muhammad Ali.

The visitors could manage a modest 138 for seven with skipper Rohit Sharma waging a lone battle with a 45-ball 67 (6x4, 2x6). The 91-run stand for the second wicket - which included 10 fours and 2 sixes - between the two ensured that more than half the job was done for SRH.
Anything Hull did manage to must was denied by the ever impressive Jordan Pickford . "I saw some rubbish figures talked about in the papers today; whoever came up with those is completely wrong". "The manager said exactly that after the Sunderland game was over". Alfred N'Diaye probably should have had the Tigers in front on 51 minutes when he met a Grosicki cross at the far post but with his feet all in a tangle he could only stab an effort wide.
Celtics President Danny Ainge and Stevens both were surprised by a WEEI report Friday that Isaiah Thomas is suffering from a broken jaw. Washington used a 26-0 run in the third quarter to take control of the game, with John Wall and Bradley Beal combining for 56 points.

It underlined how little degradation there was on these tyres at this track, despite some blistering on the front lefts of a number of cars.
We're comfortable in this position, and we understand that they've been here before and have played in these games. Anton Slepyshev got credit. "I thought it was tight all three periods", Eaves said. "And like I tell him all the time, goalies are supposed to stop the puck". Maroon also understands the pressure the Ducks now face, having played five seasons in Anaheim.
The 27-year-old said: "It was a fantastic day for us". With that being the case, it means we'll have to go to Villa and win. "We're thankful for the fans and the way they've turned up in numbers home and away".

The Jazz should be sharper and more in rhythm for Game 2, but the same could be said for the team that ran them out of the building Tuesday night. They've won their first five games of the postseason, and that winning streak should be extended to six when they host the Utah Jazz in Game 2 of their second-round series Thursday night.
Aspas then fired narrowly wide as the home side sought an equaliser but it was Pogba who came closest to scoring when he tried to catch Alvarez out of position with a free-kick from just inside Celta's half although the ball hit the side netting.
I am sure there is going to be a few changes and we'll find out during the summer. "There has been a lot of good managers relegated, and I'll use it as something to motivate myself", said Moyes. I have no sympathy with them - they deserved to do down. It's been a long hard season of not winning games and that drags everyone down. Bournemouth laid siege to the Sunderland goal in the early minutes, with Steve Cook denied a tap-in by a crucial defensive block before King shot tamely at ...

Lawyers for Hernandez had argued that the SJC had applied the legal doctrine without exception, even in cases of suicide. Lloyd's mother has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Hernandez.

"The defendant should not be able to accomplish in death what he could not accomplish in life", Bomberg said .

"As the more experienced guys in the squad it's our duty to help bring through the next generation of Juventus players because it is them that will decide the future of the club".
Bottas's victory, however, has taken him to within 10 points of his team-mate, and in doing so, diminished any suggestion that the Mercedes new boy will simply be an able deputy to Hamilton this year. Raikkonen returned to the podium for the first time since Austria last July, and also set the fastest lap. More worrying was how hard the front-runners found it to lap slower traffic and the pre-season fears that the aerodynamic changes to the cars would make it harder to overtake certainly ...

The first is that neither club played any European football in the season of their triumph and the second relates to their style, which he described as featuring "not big possession". "I don't think we have any chance of finishing top four in the Premier League". Yes, he has built an incredibly talented team at Tottenham but failing to win a trophy with this team for two seasons shows a major flaw in Pochettino.
