The Golden Knights want a Stanley Cup title to conclude their already amazing inaugural season in the NHL.

Mens Thomas Morstead Jersey Vegas is on its way, beating the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Tuesday night and becoming the first expansion team in league history to sweep its first playoff series.
Youth Mason Foster Elite White Nike Jersey: NFL Washington Redskins #54 Road Vapor Untouchable
All season long, I didn’t know any records about expansion teams, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. We just do what a regular team would, we just play the game and try to win. That’s it.

The Knights became the second team to win their first four playoff games, joining the 1970 Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Capitals won at Nationwide Arena after Columbus won the first two games — both in overtime — in Washington. It was the Capitals’ turn to prevail in OT, this time on the Blue Jackets’ home ice, to pull to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.

That’s the way it stayed until the second overtime.

If they can repeat that formula for one more game, the Sharks will move onto the second round of the playoffs.

Joonas Donskoi scored one goal and set up another to start a four-goal barrage in the second period and the Sharks raced past Anaheim for the third straight game, beating the Ducks 8-1 on Monday night for a 3-0 series lead.

We understand there’s a lot of work to do, captain Joe Pavelski said. Eliminating teams is always tough. That’s kind of where our mindset shifts, I think. We’ll see Jean Segura Youth jersey a few things that we can do better, and a few things we’re doing well. That commitment from us is going to go a long way to stay with what we’re doing.

Right now just about everything is working for the Sharks, who had eight goal-scorers in the highest-scoring playoff game in franchise history and got a 45-savve performance from Martin Jones.

The Tagovailoa-Fromm rivalry continues on recruiting trail

If you see the names Tagovailoa and Fromm pop up on the recruiting trail, it’s not a typo. The true freshmen who took over the College Football Playoff both have younger brothers who figure to keep the rivalry going.

After Jake Fromm led Georgia to an SEC title and berth in the national title game and Tua Tagovailoa won the national title for Alabama with his second-half performance, their younger siblings might have a hard time coming out of their shadows.

Bryant tells Snyder to rewind it again.

“When Chris Paul says, ‘Wait until the game slows down for him,’ that’s what he’s talking about,” Snyder says. “Because when you change speeds, by definition, you see more.”

The Sooners return several rotation players at defensive end but have to replace All-Big 12 defensive end Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, who was a senior last season.

“Like I told Johnnie, I don’t do that on purpose,” Mitchell says.

“But you can train it, though,” Snyder replies. “In fact, one of the things, because you’re getting more curls on the chase, like almost like a skip, you turn and you change speeds with your body even without your feet. That’s why you do all the stuff you’re doing with JB. The sequence is important.”

Bryant wants to note one other thing before they move on to the next clip. When Mitchell caught the inbounds pass as he came off the Gobert screen, he put the ball down with his inside hand, allowing his shoulders to get vertical immediately. It’s something they work on every day, the kind of detail that makes a difference but most casual observers would never notice.

“You’re here, and now you’re downhill,” Bryant says.

He had eight goals and 11 assists in 35 games for the Coyotes.

Max Scherzer said in the spring that he doesn’t think he has reached his peak yet, which was quite the statement from a pitcher who won the 2016 National League Cy Young Award with an impressive season, then posted an ERA almost half a run lower and WAR almost a full win higher in 2017 to win it in a second consecutive season. In his past three starts, Scherzer has posted the three highest miss rates on his fastball at any point since the start of 2017. Maybe he has a point. — Langsjets_060

Christian Yelich returns from DL after oblique injury

Outfielder Christian Yelich was activated from the 10-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday after recovering from a strained right oblique, and right-handed reliever Jorge Lopez was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League.
Limited William Perry Youth Black Nike Jersey - #72 NFL Chicago Bears 2016 Salute to Service
Yelich was available off the bench Tuesday night, but didn’t see action in the Brewers’ 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Yelich probably will start in Wednesday’s series finale.

Getting Christian back is really important, Counsell said. Yesterday was a day when we probably had four guys out of the lineup that were in our planned lineup for the first day. But that’s a baseball season. It’s going to happen.

Just last year and how it all unfolded — obviously it was pretty different but pretty special, Wentz said. He and I — we’ve been so close ever since he first got here and just developed a real friendship, a real relationship, more than just a working relationship, a true friendship between me and him and really Nate [Sudfeld] as well. A really special room. So to go through that experience last year was pretty cool.

Boston (14-2) added to its best start in franchise history with its 14th win in the past 15 games, became the first team to start 14-2 since the San Francisco Giants in 2003, and ended a seven-game winning streak by the Angels (13-4), who are also off to their best start in club history.

Game Kids Josh Sitton Jersey On Wednesday, the Red Spencer Long Jersey Sox will give the ball to right-hander Rick Porcello (3-0, 1.83 ERA), the 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner.

He pitched seven scoreless innings Thursday night against the visiting New York Yankees, and Betts also hit two home runs in the game to lead the Red Sox to a 6-3 win. Porcello did not allow a hit until Aaron Judge led off the seventh with a double, and that came after a 45-minute rain delay.

Porcello is happy to get off to a good start after opening 1-4 last season en route to an 11-17 mark.

It feels good, Porcello told ESPN after beating the Yankees. I’m contributing to the team in a positive way. That’s the biggest thing. I’m three starts in. … a lot of baseball to be played, but definitely want to continue to build off this start.

Porcello has struggled in his career against Los Angeles, however.

Jordan Reed had toe surgery, hopes to be ready by camp

Washington coach Jay Gruden knows his team is better when Jordan Reed is on the field.
Men's Majestic Colorado Rockies #8 Gerardo Parra Replica Green Salute to Service MLB Jersey
Keeping him there remains the issue.

Via John Keim of, Gruden said that he hopes a recent surgery gets the tight end back on his feet by the start of the season, after he played just six games last year.

As a practical matter, the ultimate deadline arrives in Week One, when Bryant’s $12.5 million salary becomes as a practical matter guaranteed. But the Cowboys also assume the risk of owing Bryant his full pay for the year the moment he shows up for the offseason program, since that’s when any season-ending injury occurring on team premises would guarantee his pay.
Mitchell Stephens Jersey
So the sooner they make a decision, the better. It could be that they’re going to wait and see who they may be able to get in the draft before Shon Coleman Jersey making a final decision on whether to seek a pay cut, how much of a cut they want, and whether they’re willing to cut him if he says no.

Really, QB isn’t as pressing for the Giants, and unlike many teams picking this high, they aren’t starving at too many positions in the short term. Barkley would bring the element that could help push New York back to the playoff status they enjoyed in 2016 while running behind a much-improved line with Nate Solder at left tackle.

If the Browns take Darnold, and the Giants (or another team at No. 2) select one Josh and the Jets go for another Josh, then the Broncos are unlikely to reach for Mayfield. That’s because, for now, with Case Keenum in the fold, running back is a more glaring offensive weakness with fading C.J. Anderson as the top option.

Tim Tebow hits home run in first Double-A at bat

Regardless of the sport, Tim Tebow has a flair for the dramatic.
Women's Majestic Miami Marlins #8 Andre Dawson Replica Pink Fashion Cool Base MLB Jersey
The 2010 first-round pick whose NFL career ended despite a memorable Jabari Parker Authentic Jersey playoff run and postseason victory in 2011 continues to make the climb toward the Major Leagues. Despite batting 0.056 in spring training with the Mets, Tebow hit a home run in his first Double-A at bat.

Thibodeau, who spoke before the Nuggets game was over, said he didn’t care how the playoff spot was clinched — just that they got the job done.
Limited Mens Randy Gregory Jersey
I don’t care. I just want to clinch it. Thibodeau said. If it’s tonight, Wednesday, whenever it is, just get it done. We talked about finishing. That’s been our theme. Whether it’s practice, film session, a closeout, a drive, a quarter — just finish. Whatever way we have to get there, let’s get there.

The good news for the Timberwolves is they found a way to win Monday’s game after losing to the Grizzlies at home just two weeks ago. The bad news is they still looked uneven against a tanking Grizzlies team playing without Marc Gasol (rest) and a slew of other regular contributors.

For Beckham, he’ll have more than $8.5 million in free insurance by showing up and working out with his teammates. It’s also the kind of good-faith gesture that could go a long way toward getting the powers-that-be to forget about that bizarre maybe-a-blunt-and-maybe-some-coke-and-definitely-an-uneaten-pizza video that surfaced last month.

If Beckham isn’t going to be traded, the Giants and Beckham need to come to terms on a long-term deal. Otherwise, Beckham may indeed choose only to do strength and conditioning work at the team facility, but to refuse to lace up his cleats and risk injury during practice or games until he gets the kind of contract that he earned in his rookie year.

It’s unclear whether the Jaguars had offered Griffin a contract, or whether they planned to do so.

Limited Mens Zaza Pachulia Jersey Jacksonville currently has only two quarterbacks on the roster 鈥?Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler, who recently arrived from the Browns for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Phillip Gaines signs with Bills

Phillip Gaines has a new home. The cornerback is joining the Bills, the team announced Thursday.

Gaines, 27, joins projected starters Vontae Davis and Tre’Davious White, solidifying the Bills at the position.

Gibson is right there too, registering a .927 even-strength save percentage this season in 60 starts. In 22 career playoff starts, he has an .842 high-danger save percentage, the best over the past four postseasons. Then there’s Quick. He is notably one of the best active playoff goalies in the NHL (perhaps the best), and to top it all off, he has produced his best statistical season in more than half a decade. Give me one of them and I would feel pretty damn good.

Chris Peters, NHL prospects writer: I’m still a big believer in Rinne as well. He wasn’t amazing in last year’s Stanley Cup Final and he has carried a heavy workload over the past two seasons, but he’s on top of his game right now. Combine that with the way Nashville defends and the layers teams will have to have to cut through to try to score against the Preds and you and you can see why this team keeps opposing coaches up at night. As long as Rinne is healthy, I would definitely want him on my side heading into this postseason.

Butler made only 15 catches in 2017 and has 73 in his five-year career for 1,177 yards and eight touchdowns. He played 261 offensive snaps last season in Dallas.

Shohei Ohtani has captured most of the Los Angeles Angels’ headlines thus far, but it’s the team’s other hitters who stand out in Week 2 — particularly the right-handers. The Angels are slated to face three left-handed starters, plus another four right-handers who possess league-average-at-best strikeout rates, and they’ll play three of their seven games at Texas’ hitting-friendly Globe Life Park. Beyond the obvious trio of Angels hitting options (Mike Trout, Justin Upton and Andrelton Simmons), Albert Pujols (available in roughly 60 percent of ESPN leagues) stands out as a particularly advantageous fantasy option.

As the team’s cleanup hitter with the squad facing a strong week of hitting matchups, Pujols’ runs/RBIs (not to mention plate appearances, since the lineup should turn over more often) should benefit. In addition, keep tabs on Ian Kinsler’s (DL, groin) status heading into Monday’s weekly lineup deadline because if he needs only the minimum, 10-day stay on the disabled list, as expected, he’d be eligible to return Tuesday, would presumably be slotted directly back into the leadoff spot and therefore would warrant instant activation in all leagues.flames_021

Gay, Ginobili lead Spurs over Kings to clinch playoff berth

The Spurs seemed like a perfect free-agent destination as Rudy Gay searched for a guaranteed playoff berth after just one postseason appearance in 11 previous seasons.
Youth Nike Carolina Panthers #74 Daeshon Hall Black Team Color Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
That assurance was eroded by injuries this season, but Gay made sure two decades of success didn’t come to an end in his first year in San Antonio.

Gay scored 18 points, Manu Ginobili had 17 and the Spurs rallied late to beat the Sacramento Kings 98-85 on Monday night and clinch their 21st straight postseason appearance.
Game Womens Corey Peters Jersey
Last season, Yunel Escobar, Marcell Ozuna, Asdrubal Cabrera and Odubel Herrera were all in the mix of early batting leaders at some point during their respective teams’ first eight games. However, when all was said and done, this quartet, who had hit a combined .400 to kick off the season, hit a combined .289 for the season — and .281 if you started counting at Game No. 9.

In other words, a hot streak gets more diluted and means less as the season wears on. However, a slow start remains a batting average albatross the rest of the way. If you know a player’s poor first week is driving down his stats but trust his track record and recent performance, you can use that to your advantage at the trading table in May or June. Keep this in mind when looking at the numbers, because it can help you to spin the statistics in a way to ensure you’re the one coming out ahead in terms of value when making trades going forward.

Duda’s shot off Bauer (0-1) was one of only three hits by Kansas City and a rare highlight as the two teams survived nine innings with the temperature hovering around freezing.

But afterward, Bauer complained that he didn’t have enough Mike Adams Youth jersey time to warm up following the sixth inning. In an attempt to speed up play this season, Major League Baseball has cut the time between innings from 2 minutes, 25 seconds to 2:05.

First pitch of the inning, coming out, I tried to get loose, but with the new [commissioner] Rob Manfred time [nonsense], we have only a certain amount of time between innings, it’s hard to get loose sometimes, especially in conditions like that. It’s not safe, but, whatever.

Authentic Jersey Bauer said at one point plate umpire Will Little told him to speed up and he refused.

I was like, ‘Look, I’ll take the fine if I need to, but I’m not going to put myself at risk and I’m not going to put the team at risk of me having exactly what happened happen,’ Bauer said. Throw a pitch that you’re not ready to compete on because you’re still trying to get loose and it gets hit over the fence, and we lose because of it — not because of it, but it was a contributing factor.

The Nationals stretched the lead in the second.

Nationals: C Matt Wieters was placed on the 10-day DL with a mild left oblique strain to address what is believed to be a short-term injury rather than it becomes a big issue, according to Martinez. He plans to mix and match backups Miguel Montero and Severino, who was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse before the game…. 2B Daniel Murphy, on the DL following right knee surgery, was cleared for the first time to run in the outfield before the game.

Game Youth Johan Franzen Jersey Braves: The addition of C Carlos Perez allows manager Brian Snitker to be cautious with C Kurt Suzuki, still recovering from a bruised right hand. With Tyler Flowers (left oblique strain) expected to miss a few weeks, Perez will play behind Chris Stewart, who made his second straight start…. LHP Luiz Gohara (left ankle sprain) threw two innings in a simulated game and had no problems with the ankle, according to Snitker.

The attorney also accused the state wildlife department of ignoring the possibility that 27-year-old Emilio Macias, who was the son of a Miami-Dade Police detective, was operating the vessel at the moment of impact.

Chris Royer, an attorney for the estates of Macias and 25-year-old Eduardo Rivero, says there’s no evidence that either of them was operating the vessel. The state wildlife agency declined to comment on the filing.

When reached by ESPN, Ralph Fernandez said, I’m not going to comment on the motion that I filed due to the pending proceedings. The motion speaks for itself. But I understand that Mr. (Chris) Royer, my worthy Fred Biletnikoff Authentic Jersey adversary, has suggested that I have breached confidentiality rulings. Three matters are confidential; the autopsy photographs, the redacted portion of the investigative report and the specifics of video surveillance. Not a shred of that evidence appears in my filings.

Three and out: Cincinnati Bengals’ 2018 NFL draft needs, prospect fits

In the build-up to the 2018 draft, USA TODAY Sports will take a look at each NFL team’s situation and needs.
MLB Adrian Beltre Replica Men's White Jersey - Majestic Texas Rangers #29 Home Cool Base
1. The Bengals addressed one offensive line need in trading with the Bills for left tackle Cordy Glenn, but Cincinnati’s biggest remaining need is on the interior of the line, particularly at center after the team did not re-sign Russell Bodine when his rookie deal expired. Bodine’s exit came a year after the Bengals lost guard Kevin Zeitler to a hefty deal with the Browns, so this is a unit undergoing major change.

3. Re-signing Tyler Eifert to a one-year looks like a good move 锟紺 but only if the starting tight end can stay healthy, and that’s been a major question in recent years after back surgeries in 2016 and 2017. The Bengals need to find another possible long-term answer.

The Rams began their offseason by acquiring cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters in separate deals with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs, respectively. They announced an agreement with free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh last week.

Cooks has now been traded twice in the past 13 months. New England acquired him from the New Orleans Brandon Crawford Authentic Jersey Saints for two draft picks in March 2017. The 24-year-old finished second on the Patriots with 65 receptions, 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

After winning the NFC West with an 11-5 record in 2017, the Rams are taking significant steps to improve next season by adding impact talent on both sides of the ball. Kenny Britt in 2016 is the only Los Angeles receiver with more than 1,000 yards in a season since 2008.

Marlins add Severino Gonzalez from Triple-A New Orleans

The Marlins have selected right-hander Severino Gonzalez from Triple-A New Orleans.

Gonzalez made 27 appearances for Philadelphia in 2016, the last time he was in the majors. He started seven games with the Phillies in 2015, then worked exclusively out of the bullpen the following season.

Also Sunday, the Marlins optioned outfielder Braxton Lee to New Orleans. He was 0 for 4 with a walk in his five plate appearances with Miami this season, appearing in two of the season’s first three games.

It’s a lazy late-winter morning in Arizona and nothing much is happening. Dodgers camp has been dull. Most of the players in the clubhouse, the ones destined for the 40-man roster, were in the organization at the end of last season. The most notable new face is familiar — outfielder Matt Kemp, a former Dodgers All-Star reacquired for reasons that had little to do with his remaining on-field ability.

The most dramatic thing that had happened in camp to that point had been an outbreak of illness that swept through the team’s facility at Camelback Ranch. Players and staff were sent home early one day when that happened and the entire facility was decontaminated.

But, with agency now two weeks old, it would appear two teams are setting themselves up to be on a collision course with trying to unseat the Philadelphia Eagles as the NFC champion – the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Rams. Other teams have made a splash – Detroit has signed a plenty of players and even the free agent-stingy Packers have broken from tradition with a new general manager, signing defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson and tight end Jimmy Graham and tendering a big-money offer sheet to cornerback Kyle Fuller (only to have the Bears match).

Now we’ve seen it for real: Shohei Ohtani got a hit in his first major league at-bat, and then he got a win in his major league pitching debut. He sat at 98 mph as a pitcher, after rapping grounders 95, 102 and 104 mph as a batter. The extraordinary experiment he and the Los Angeles Angels are embarking on this year — to make him the game’s first two-way superstar in a century — looks credible.patriots_112
