                      • Crosby lifts Pens past Devils in OT
                        March 29, 2018


                        NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Sidney Crosby batted his own rebound out of the air and into the net 19 seconds into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Devils 4-3 on Thursday night, denying New Jersey a sweep of the four-game season series.


                        Kris Letang stole Taylor Hall's pass in the opening seconds in the Pittsburgh zone and sent Crosby on a semi-break the other way. His initial shot hit the goalpost, but then the star center pulled his hands in and swatted the puck out of the air - a fitting move on the opening day of baseball season.


                        Crosby extended his goal-scoring streak to five games, including a similar goal against Montreal last Wednesday in which Crosby juggled the puck once on his stick before smacking it from just below shoulder height.


                        Conor Sheary, Letang and Patric Hornqvist also scored for the Penguins. Matt Murray made 28 saves.


                        Kyle Palmieri, Hall and Blake Coleman scored for the Devils, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Keith Kinkaid had 31 saves in losing for only the fourth time in his past 16 decisions (12-3-1).


                        BRUINS 4, LIGHTNING 2


                        BOSTON (AP) - Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists and Boston took over first place in the Eastern Conference with a win over Tampa Bay.


                        Tim Schaller and David Pastrnak scored goals 32 seconds apart in the final minute of the first period and Brad Marchand added an empty-net goal with 56 seconds left.


                        Torey Krug had two assists, Pastrnak finished with a goal and an assist and Tuukka Rask stopped 26 shots for the Bruins, who have 107 points and lead Tampa Bay by a point.


                        J.T. Miller scored a power-play goal for Tampa Bay in the second and Victor Hedman added a goal in the third. Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 26 saves for the Lightning, who have lost three straight and are 0-3 against the Bruins this season.


                        BLACKHAWKS 6, JETS 2


                        CHICAGO (AP) - Emergency goaltender Scott Foster played the final 14 minutes after Chicago lost Anton Forsberg and Collin Delia to injuries, closing out the Blackhawks' victory over Winnipeg.


                        Forsberg was expected to start, but he was scratched after the team said he got hurt during warmups. Delia, who was just recalled from the minors Wednesday, then stopped 25 of 27 shots in his NHL debut before he was helped off the ice in the third period due to a lower-body injury.


                        Enter Foster, a 36-year-old former goaltender at Western Michigan University. After a short warmup, the game resumed and Foster got a big cheer from the crowd of 21,839 when he denied Tyler Myers for his first save about a minute after he came in.


                        Backed by chants of ''Foster! Foster!'' and more loud ovations down the stretch, he finished with seven stops. Before facing the playoff-bound Jets, winners of six in a row, Foster's last competitive action was 20 minutes in relief for the Broncos during his only game in the 2005-06 season.


                        PREDATORS 5, SHARKS 3


                        NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ryan Ellis scored the go-ahead goal with 9:54 left and Nashville beat San Jose to set a franchise record with 111 points this season.


                        With their 50th victory, the NHL-leading Predators padded their lead to four points over Boston in the chase for their first Presidents' Trophy. Nashville topped the mark of 110 points set in 2006-07 on a night where the franchise also notched its 100th consecutive sellout, a streak that started April 7, 2016, against the Sharks.


                        Craig Smith and Viktor Arvidsson each had a goal and an assist, Kyle Turris had a goal, and Filip Forsberg had three assists. Nick Bonino added an empty-net goal with 17 seconds left for Nashville, which won the season series against San Jose 2-1.


                        Juuse Saros made 39 saves for the win, including stopping Logan Couture on a penalty shot with 1:53 left. The goalie also helped the Predators kill a penalty with 3:10 remaining with a flurry of stops.


                        Couture, Brenden Dillon and Mikkel Boedker scored for the Sharks. San Jose snapped its nine-game point streak.


                        SENATORS 3, PANTHERS 2, OT


                        OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored on a penalty shot in overtime to lift Ottawa over Florida.


                        The Panthers dropped three points behind New Jersey with a game in hand for the final wild card in the Eastern Conference. The Devils lost to Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime Thursday.


                        Pageau and Magnus Paajarvi also scored in regulation for the Senators, and Craig Anderson stopped 24 shots.


                        Aaron Ekblad and Evgeni Dadonov scored for the Panthers, and James Reimer made 27 saves.


                        BLUE JACKETS 5, FLAMES 1


                        CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Pierre-Luc Dubois had his first career hat trick and Columbus Blue Jackets stayed hot with a win over Calgary.


                        Columbus earned its sixth straight road victory and 12th win in its past 13 games, and moved past the Philadelphia Flyers and into third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Blue Jackets are one point back of the second place Pittsburgh Penguins.


                        Markus Hannikainen and Markus Nutivaara also scored for Columbus. Dubois' linemates Artemi Panerin and Cam Atkinson each had two assists.


                        Chris Stewart scored for Calgary, ruining Sergei Bobrovky's shutout bid with 22 seconds left in the game.


                        RED WINGS 6, SABRES 3


                        BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Anthony Mantha scored his team-leading 24th goal and Detroit snapped an 11-game road losing streak by beating last-place Buffalo.


                        Dylan Larkin, Darren Helm, Andreas Athanasiou and Danny DeKeyser also scored to help Detroit overcome a 2-0 first-period deficit in a game between teams eliminated from playoff contention. Rookie Evgeny Svechnikov sealed the victory by scoring with 3:01 remaining and added an assist. Jimmy Howard stopped 29 shots.


                        Jack Eichel, Ryan O'Reilly and Evan Rodrigues scored for Buffalo. Rookie first-round draft pick Casey Mittelstadt set up Rodrigues' goal by winning a faceoff in the third period for his first career assist in his NHL debut.


                        WILD 5, STARS 2


                        ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Matt Dumba scored on a power play and had two assists in Minnesota's three-goal second period, and the Wild moved a step closer to a spot in the playoffs with a victory over fading Dallas.


                        Mikael Granlund sparked the Wild with a short-handed goal in the first period, set up by the first of two assists by Ryan Suter. Zach Parise scored 59 seconds after Dumba and tacked on an empty-netter in the waning seconds, and Jason Zucker had a power-play goal with 11 seconds left before the second intermission to give the Wild a bigger cushion at the break.


                        Jamie Benn and Devin Shore scored for the Stars, who have lost eight straight road games, including six in regulation. They're just 1-7-2 in their past 10 games overall, staggering into position for the knockout punch to their postseason hope. They host a rematch with the Wild on Saturday night.


                        CANUCKS 2, OILERS 1


                        VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Defenseman Derrick Pouliot snapped a 1-1 tie with his third goal of the season early in the third period and Vancouver defeated Edmonton for its third consecutive win.


                        Sam Gagner also scored for the Canucks, who have won four of their past five games.


                        Connor McDavid scored for the Oilers, who have lost two in a row. Edmonton is 3-2-1 in its past six games.

                          “It was a great feeling getting out there, didn’t really feel like I missed any time with that injury last year. It was great to go out there and feel the energy that the 7 Line brings and the Mets fans bring. Just propels me to do a better job.”

                          “That had a nice ring to it, Don. I’m not going to lie about it.”
                          Trevor Hoffman, after Padres’ TV guy Don Orsillo introduced him on air Thursday, as “Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman”

                          Florida (2008) was the last college basketball team to repeat as national champs.

                          ****************************

                          Friday’s List of 13: Wrapping up Opening Day and other stuff
                          13) I used to be a minor league official scorer, long time ago (back when I had hair); if I kept score of games today, I’d code the field 3-9 instead of players, to account for shifting in the field.

                          For instance, Houston used four OF’s vs Joey Gallo Thursday; he flied out to 3B Alex Bregman, who was playing in left field. Traditional scoring would say F5, since Bregman plays 3B, but I’d say F7, since Gallo hit the ball to left field.

                          I’d supplement my scorebook with written notes on who actually caught the ball, but thats how I’d score a game now. Just think it would be more accurate.

                          12) Rays 6, Red Sox 4— Chris Sale allowed no runs, one hit in six IP (92 PT), then the Boston bullpen blew the lead in the 8th inning, allowing four walks, two hits, with Denard Span’s 3-run triple the big hit.

                          11) Dodger TV guy Joe Davis said there were 90 mound visits (90!!!) in Game 7 of the World Series last year. the limit this year will be six per team; ummm, thats a little different.

                          10) Cubs 8, Marlins 4- Roof was open at Marlins’ Park Thursday; it was open for six home games out of 78 LY and Miami was 0-6 in those games. Marlins are not a MLB-quality team right now- they’re going to lose a lot of games.

                          For the record, Ian Happ was the first batter this season and he hit a home run.

                          9) If you care about such things, Josh Donaldson led MLB last year, 15 1st-inning homers. Giancarlo Stanton was next, with 14. Stanton hit one in the first inning in Toronto Thursday, and then he hit another one in the 9th inning.

                          8) Astros 4, Rangers 1— When Joey Gallo batted with bases empty, Houston played four guys in OF with no fielders on left side of the infield. Actually, Altuve was in the OF too, in short RF, so they had five guys in the outfield.

                          7) McDonald’s All-American Darius Bazley decommitted from Syracuse, becoming the first top high school prospect to choose turning pro in the G League, where he’ll make $26,000, instead of spending a few months in college. Maybe he’ll get a small shoe contract.

                          Bazley is a 6-9 kid from the Cincinnati area; he’ll sign a pro contract when he turns 18 in June. Big gamble on his part— if he were to get hurt, then what? If he gets hurt in college, he’s still in college and has the school’s resources at his disposal. He won’t be property of an NBA team next year, just the G-League team. He’ll be eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft.

                          6) White Sox 11, Royals 4— Matt Davidson hit three homers for Chicago; maybe I should’ve picked him up in my fantasy league, back when he was available. Whoops.

                          5) RIP Rusty Staub 73, who played 23 years in the big leagues, breaking in with the Houston Colt .45’s in 1963. Le Grand Orange, as he was known in Montreal, made six All-Star teams and had a career OB% of .362 with 292 career homers. He owned a popular restaurant in Manhattan for years after he retired from playing.

                          Think about how times have changed; in 1963, there was a baseball team named after a gun and an NBA team called the Baltimore Bullets.

                          4) Braves 8, Phillies 5— Phils led this game 5-2 in 8th, but Atlanta rallied, and Nick Markakis hit a walk-off homer to send Braves fans home happy.

                          Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers is the first player this season to leave a game with an injury— he suffered an oblique injury in the second inning.

                          3) Orioles 3, Twins 2 (11)— Not 100% sure, but Zach Duke may very well be the first pitcher ever to strike out four batters in an inning on Opening Day- he struck out four Orioles in the 7th inning.

                          Adam Jones hit a walk-off homer in the 11th inning to send everyone home happy, after Orioles blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning.

                          2) Brewers 2, Padres 1 (12)— Bill Schroeder is a former big league catcher who is a really good analyst; Padres had two on, one out in the 7th inning Thursday with Milwaukee leading 1-0, and Schroeder says more than once (three times??) that reliever Josh Hader can get Austin Hedges out with a slider, almost like he is trying to use telepathy to get him to throw it.

                          Eventually, Hader throws the slider and strikes Hedges out.

                          1— Louisville QB Lamar Jackson threw 59 passes, took snaps under center in front of reps from all 32 NFL teams Thursday, but he wouldn’t run a 40-yard dash, because everyone knows he is fast enough to play QB and he ain’t interested in being a wide receiver. Good for him.
