Tampa Bay laid one in Montreal and the New York Rangers produced one after taking a 2-0 lead in a loss to Philadelphia. Sunday was probably the least memorable day of the playoffs thus far -- unless you're Brent Seabrook -- but the Flyers, Bruins, Canadiens...

Why 'Baylor sucks' is a big problem for Texas

Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford likes to tell a story. It most often comes out when he glances down and sees a $200 pair of Nikes on his players' feet. Back in the 1960s, Converses were America's must-have shoe. That included Bedford's hometown of Beaumont, Texas. Converses--Chuck Taylors, to be specific--cost $12. Half a century ago, that was a lot more than...

Flash Points: Lightning pushed to brink with Game 3 loss to Canadiens

The Bolts are on the brink. Are the officials to blame? It will be convenient for some to point to a disallowed goal from winger Ryan Callahan in the second period Sunday as the reason the Tampa Bay Lightning lost 3-2 and fell behind 3-0 in their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series against the Montreal Canadiens. In front of a charged crowd at Bell Centre, Callahan appeared to...

Minnesota Vikings: Three players that need to have career seasons

The Vikings will be a long-shot to win the brutal NFC North Division in 2014, but possess the talent to do some damage if all of the pieces fall into place under the new coaching regime. Minnesota will be learning hard-nosed defensive that corresponds with a run-and-gun type offense. Typically it takes a team under a new system at least a season to adapt, but the Vikings have young...

The NFL draft prospect that will help the Minnesota Vikings the most

It’s seriously up in the air as to which player the Minnesota Vikings will select with the 8th pick in the NFL draft. The team has many needs on defense and offense, especially at the quarterback position.

Speedy Billy Hamilton beats out a grounder, to first base

Hamilton hit a ground ball off pitcher Carlos Villanueva that first baseman Anthony Rizzo fielded cleanly approximately 7 steps behind the bag. Hamilton raced down the line and beat both Villanueva and Rizzo to the base.

Holding the hot hand, James Jones makes the most of his Game 1 chance

MIAMI -- James Jones' most important work during the regular season often occurred before Miami Heat road games. That's when the veteran swingman would arrive at the arena early to shoot around with teammate and fellow health nut Ray Allen. He then would take food orders for Heat players' postgame meals.

Mavericks blow lead in final minutes to Spurs

My theory is there is probably no one way to lose a playoff game that is more of a 'downer' than another. But in Sunday's first-round Game 1 at San Antonio, when the Mavs held a late 10-point lead but then went almost six minutes without scoring to cough up a 90-85 loss? This tests the theory - and the limits of 'downer.' The good news: The Dallas Mavericks were...
