Boucher pointed out that one factor in penalty-kill success in the playoffs is that goaltenders are at their best , "their most alert". Hornqvist, who will be a game-time decision for Game 1 while recovering from upper-body injury , gives the Penguins a almost intractable net-front presence.
The Honda teams had a clear horsepower advantage over Chevrolet, but things were dicey in Indy for more than a week and certainly on race day: Before Alonso's failure, 2014 victor Ryan Hunter-Reay lost his Honda and so did Charlie Kimball .
I was a little bit tight. The youngest male player in Paris this year is 18-year-old Alex De Minaur. Karlovic will play in the second round against Argentina's Horacio Zeballos, who opened Day One with a 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 win over Adrian Mannarino of France.
Fresh from securing a record third consecutive league and Cup double, Juventus are looking to complete a treble this season when they face Real in the Welsh capital. After all, we played two games without conceding against Barcelona (with a 3-0 aggregate in this year's quarter-finals), which is very rare. Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has conceded just one goal in six knockout matches this season, but the Europe's all-time highest scorer believes he can break the wall.
Just as fittingly, Kyrie Irving assisted on the basket - a 3-point shot with 2:41 left in the third quarter to increase the Cavaliers' lead to 103-71. "I don't know", Lue said. The Celtics also managed to overcome a 0-2 deficit to the Bulls and outlasted Washington in a seven-game series, although he had Thomas for those games.
After breezing through the first set winning five games in a row, things became more hard for Nadal in the second set against Paire who threatened to break serve but the Spaniard held firm. However, she made too many unforced errors to sustain any form of challenge. "I think I played very good in the first set. Francesca is a legend", Muguruza said.
The Basildon-born racer was helpless as his wrecked auto careered across the race track and crashed into Scott Dixon , who had started on pole. Miraculously, according to TMZ , both drivers walked away unscathed, and Dixon was in good spirits after the potentially deadly crash at the first turn.
But the picture isn't entirely rosy for the 25-year-old. Nadal dominated the opening set, then recovered from a slight second-set wobble when he dropped serve twice in a row to surge into a round two meeting with Dutchman Robin Haase. "Seven years have gone by?" she began. Muguruza arrived at Roland Garros having won just three times on clay this season, however, she looked much improved on Court Philippe Chatrier .
Monica Puig , who shares an agent with Kvitova , was fighting her way through a three-setter against Roberta Vinci at the same time as the Czech, on the nearby Court 2, and says her mind drifted to Court Philippe Chatrier briefly during her own first round.
The Cavaliers finished the opening quarter with a 16 point lead, up 43 - 27; with 43 being a franchise record in the playoffs for most points in any quarter. The NBA Finals are set to tip off next week. I was watching before tonight's game the game that they played in Golden State (earlier this season).
This flashpoint came in the eighth inning - with two outs, none on and Washington ahead 2-0, Strickland hit Harper with the first pitch, a 98 miles per hour fastball. Harper is a professional baseball player whose job depends on his ability to throw objects accurately, but this throw was-well, just watch it for yourself.
He has scored 955 of those points against Boston , the most for any player against any team. As it is, the closest active players to him - Tony Parker (4,012), Dwyane Wade (3,871), Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) and Manu Ginobili (3,009) - are all nearing the end of their careers, and they aren't all that close to begin with.
But during a recent interview with USA Today Sports , KD talked about what his early days with Golden State were like. Yes, Jordan needed fewer games than James (179 to 212). It took a three-game comeback from the Warriors to overcome the Thunder. Golden State's Kevin Durant opened as the favorite to be named NBA Finals MVP on Wednesday at William Hill, the first Nevada sportsbook to offer odds on the Finals MVP.
Defenseman Kevin Bieksa said the Ducks just have to go out and win. Heading into the game, the question was whether the Predators could win without Ryan Johansen , who had undergone surgery after getting hurt in the previous game. It is impossible to quantify the exact impact, but it seems certain that the Predators have benefited from the rest they got prior to the start of this series with the Anaheim Ducks , which continues - and possibly concludes - Monday at Bridgestone Arena ...
There is not loads and loads to learn. "The great thing about rugby is there is more than one way to win a game". You have to [have that belief], definitely. Additionally, the assistant coach Steve Borthwick confirmed on Sunday night that there are no fresh injury concerns after the Premiership and Pro12 finals as well as Northampton's Champions Cup play-off.
They've been the best team in our league for the last three years, and then they added an MVP. I want the right play, I've always loved the success of my teammates - and so, I'm not a scorer. They've been 9.8 points per 100 possessions better offensively in the playoffs than they were in the regular season. "It has nothing to do with passing him in rings, passing him in points, passing him in MVPs".
He was named first-team All-NFL in 1992, 1993, and 1994, and selected All-Pro twice, All-AFC four times, and was named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 1990s. While he was attending high school, his mother Ruby Harris, made him quit the school football team as he had got poor grades. For many seasons of his career, Mr.
It took just one hole for Horschel to take the crown, giving him the fourth victory of his PGA Tour career and his first since the 2014 Tour Championship . In Gee Chun, playing with Thompson, shot a bogey-free 67, but was no match for the leader, finishing five strokes back. This tournament was the first Tour event named for a specific player and has been a constant on the professional golf circuit since Nelson won the inaugural event in 1944.
The first "threematch" - rematch of a rematch - in league history. Both teams have compared favorably with one another in this postseason. "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west".
The puck bounced out of traffic to defenseman PK Subban, who fooled everyone with a faked point shot before sliding it over to Neal. At 9:24 of overtime, James Neal's one-timer found twine. "We believe that we have a group that obviously we can build with and we can build internally with our young players and we can build internally with the competition of those young players", Yeo said.
