Detroit Red Wings end historic run, will miss playoffs for first time in 25 years

Posted on by

Hockey fans saw this coming for months (if not years) now, but it’s official: the Detroit Red Wings’ historic 25-year playoff appearance streak is over.

Three things had to happen for that inevitability to occur. The Red Wings had to lose to the Carolina Hurricanes. They did. The Toronto Maple Leafs had to beat the Florida Panthers. They did. And the Boston Bruins had to beat the streaking Nashville Predators. They did.

It’s somewhat fitting that it took so much to end such a long streak.

Ian Kennedy Womens Jersey The Red Wings’ streak lasted from 1991-2017. Along the way, Detroit visited the Stanley Cup Finals six times and paraded through downtown Detroit with the most hallowed trophy in sports four times. Those 25 years of success turned the Red Wings into one of the most iconic franchises in American pro sports, let alone hockey.

Authentic Kids Nat Moore Jersey But the fall from grace was inevitable for a while now, as aging veterans like Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Pavel Datsyuk all retired or saw significant decline in their play. The Red Wings relied on savvy drafting to keep the streak alive, but the prospect pool has dried up as their Eastern Conference rivals leapt ahead.

A rebuild is past due, but 25 years is a heck of an accomplishment. The streak’s end finishes off a truly transitional year for the franchise. The Red Wings are moving out of Joe Louis Arena after the season, and long-time owner Mike Ilitch passed away earlier this year.

John Fox released from hospital, Doug Martin to injured reserve

Posted on by

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox is out of the hospital and back at home recovering from heart surgery he underwent earlier in the week. With Jack Del Rio serving as the team’s interim head coach, Fox released a statement on Friday to tell fans that he’s recovering smoothly from the surgery:

“My recovery is progressing well — I am feeling better and getting stronger each day. I will begin the next phase of my recovery in Charlotte and continue outpatient appointments with doctors, who will clear me to return to Denver when the time is right.

“Although I’m eager to return to coaching, my No. 1 focus is my health. I believe in our players and have full confidence in Jack Del Rio and our staff.

“While it’s extremely difficult to be away from the team on Sunday in San Diego, I’ll be cheering them on from home just like the many Broncos fans who have supported me throughout this process.”

The Bears and Lions are fighting for both the NFC North lead as well as the final spot in the NFC playoff race, in one of the bigger games of the week when it comes to postseason implications. The Lions won in a shootout back on Sept. 29 against the Bears, 40-32, and look to build off a stunning last-second victory in Dallas last week.

I want to be able to tell people that the Bucs are going to the Super Bowl just win a game and not have it be an exercise in self-delusion.

I won’t tell anyone they’re not a real fan for feeling any way about their team’s performance. I’m just saying this for my own sake: I can’t stand the losses. I will not be happy when the Bucs lose, and I will continue to celebrate any victory that comes the Bucs’ way. Because I’m a Bucs fan, dammit, and I want the Bucs to win.

Jay Cutler injury: Bears QB hurts ankle late vs. Lions

Posted on by

Authentic Mens David Savard Jersey
The Jaguars are riding a one-game win streak. They are hot, hot, HOT! Florida’s most functional team — seriously — got some help from the Titans. The Cardinals are prone to turnovers themselves. Carson Palmer has 15 interceptions, at least one in every game this season.

The problem here is the Cardinals defense. It’s very good, and capable of swallowing up offenses led by the likes of Chad Henne. It was nice to see the Jags get the win last week and save themselves from the indignity of 0-16, but here we are again forced to side with the rational instinct.

Jay Cutler left Sunday’s game between the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions late in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Backup quarterback Josh McCown entered the game on the Bears’ next offensive possession and led the team on a touchdown drive that ended with a failed two-point conversion attempt.

Karl-Anthony Towns Womens Jersey Needing those two points to tie the game, Chicago went on to lose at home, 21-19.

Cutler had reportedly been dealing with the injury since the first half of the game. He was taped up at halftime, according to ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson, but the injury still worsened and affected his mobility in the pocket. An MRI came back negative, and Cutler said after the game that he is walking, but the quarterback also added that he is unsure whether he will suit up next week against the Baltimore Ravens.

The injury was reportedly unrelated to the groin injury that held him out of last week’s win against the Green Bay Packers. Cutler finished Sunday’s game 21-for-40 passing for 250 yards, one touchdown and one interception. McCown went 6-for-9 for 62 yards and a touchdown in relief.

Donald Fehr: Players won’t concede in Olympic stalemate

Posted on by

The NHL should not be waiting for the players to give up something in return for Olympic participation, National Hockey League Players’ Association executive director Donald Fehr told ESPN on Thursday.

Worth noting of Sanchez, his most successful seasons with the New York Jets involved game plans that plotted to feature a power-running game and minimize Sanchez’s role. With comparisons to Arian Foster, who played for Kubiak, and Terrell, the former and Broncos running back whose career ended because of knee problems only after a 2-yard, there is much to like about. The Broncos habitually score big with overlooked running backs, a lineage that includes, Olandis, and current starter C.J., who was undrafted out of Cal but went to the Pro Bowl and helped Denver to a Lombardi Trophy Super Bowl 50.

Brandon Dubinsky Authentic Jersey Last year鈥檚 Ohio preview talked about a team that was supposed to have an interesting backfield of quarterback JD Sprague and running back A.J. Ouellette. But Sprague left the team in August due to thoracic outlet syndrome, and Ouellette injured his foot three carries into the season and was lost for the year.

Although their postseason situation remains undetermined, the Redskins find themselves unfamiliar territory. As said, he and his teammates are playing meaningful December for the second straight year, which is something this franchise hasn’t experienced 19 seasons when that squad followed up a 9 1996 campaign with an ’97. That was the last time Washington posted back-to-back winning seasons.

Kiko Alonso agrees to a 3-year extension with the Dolphins

Posted on by

Jermaine Kearse Youth Jersey
Kiko Alonso has agreed to a three-year extension with the Miami Dolphins, according to several reports. Worth $28.9 million over four years, with $18.5 million guaranteed, it is a three-year deal on top of his $3.9 million restricted free agent tender, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. It keeps Alonso in Miami after a bounce-back season.

In his first year with the Dolphins, Alonso doubled his tackle totals from the previous year and caught two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown. He became a regular starter in the Dolphins’ front seven, after being a part-time player with the Eagles in 2015.
Elite Delino DeShields Jersey
His competitiveness isn’t, though. Players with energy, work ethic, and hockey I.Q. are valuable, and the Bruins would make a good fit while Andersson develops his game. And if he re-finds that scoring touch, all the better.

The only knock on Heiskanen? He is small. That didn’t stop Torey Krug from thriving. It didn’t stop the Stars from drafting Julius Honka. It won’t stop teams from drafting Makar. And it won’t keep the Oilers from jumping at Heiskanen if he falls this far.

Heiskanen disappointed at the World Juniors, but what Finland player didn’t? The Finnish defenseman makes up for his size with an active stick in his own end and can make plays offensively.

The best and worst of everything from March Madness Day 3

Posted on by

Sometimes, non-stop college basketball action featuring the best teams in the country for two days straight isn’t enough to please people. Sometimes people want everything stated above along with results that surprise them and dramatic finishes that make them jump out of their seats.

The first two days of the 2017 NCAA tournament may not have provided that, but Saturday’s slate of second-round action at least gave us one of those things. The third day of the Big Dance gave us our first No. 1 seed going down, our first double-digit seed advancing to week two, and our biggest officiating controversy to date.

As is the case with any day in the Big Dance, there was a lot of good, a lot of bad, and a little bit of weird. Let’s take a look at it all.

There will be a new national champion in college basketball this year, because the reigning king of the sport and the 2017 tournament’s No. 1 overall seed is no more. Villanova was sent home before the Sweet 16 for the seventh time in eight years thanks to a tremendous effort from a Wisconsin team that wanted to remind the country that no team has won more March Madness games since 2014 than the Badgers.

A back-and-forth affair resulted in the contest being tied at 62 in the final seconds. With the game on the line, Wisconsin’s most experienced player, Nigel Hayes, made a tremendous move to score what would prove to be the game-winning basket.

This incredible lumberjack with one arm crushed his wood-chopping competition

Posted on by

Nick Fredriksen may be the most incredible athlete you¡¯ve never heard of. The champion lumberjack crushed his competition in February — and he did it all with one arm.

This photo posted during the first half of OSU¡¯s March Madness game against Michigan, indicating this rattler hunt just could not wait. (These things are usually scheduled in advance, and based on the score as of this exact second, Gundy¡¯s wrangling is good luck for the Pokes.)
Authentic Womens Johnthan Banks Jersey
Even the flyer for the next big rattler event in Okeene is basically just OSU¡¯s mascot:

Other things to keep in mind, regarding Gundy¡¯s Oklahoma cred: he¡¯s a state lifer who was Barry Sanders¡¯ QB at OSU in the 1980s and has coached in Stillwater almost every year since 1989, his boss is an oil and gas billionaire, and he recently showed up ready to grapple in order to promote OSU¡¯s renowned wrestling team.

New Orleans has had a week to stew in its Week 6 loss to the Patriots. The Saints will look to rebound against a banged up Bills squad. Quarterback Drew Brees is likely to spread the ball around and put up tons of points on the Bills.

Elite Kids Devin Street Jersey Right now, this is what we do know about the playoff races. Tiebreakers will factor in for some race at some point, in all likelihood. There will be important games that haven¡¯t been played yet. At this point, what teams have remaining on the schedule matters immensely, since there¡¯s such a small portion of the season left.

Here¡¯s all the information you should know about every team with a chance at making the playoffs ¡ª well, you know, at least a realistic one.

Barcelona completes greatest Champions League comeback ever, beats PSG 6-5

Posted on by

Despite everyone thinking they were done, despite all the odds, despite history being against them, Barcelona found a way. Even coming into this Champions League Round of 16 match four goals down on aggregate to Paris Saint-Germain, even after giving up an away goal, Barcelona found a way. After three goals in the first hour of the match, Barcelona scored three more times in the last seven minutes of the match, including twice in stoppage time, to mount a history-making comeback to beat PSG 6-1 on the day at 6-5 on aggregate, absolutely stunning the world in the process.

Jackson won 11 NBA championships integrating the offense as head coach of the Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls and Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers. But he has been unsuccessful in his three seasons teaching the offense as Knicks president, notably resulting to a franchise-worst 17-65 record two years ago.

Last season, Jackson held “triangle seminars,” according to the New York Daily News’ Frank Isola, where he and assistant coach Kurt Rambis attempted to teach players the offense through watching film. That team finished with a 32-50 record amid reluctance to run the system.

Carmelo Anthony has grown ill talking about the Triangle. Derrick Rose has been openly frustrated with learning the offense, calling it “random basketball,” but he conceded that he had to come to grips with the Triangle if he wanted to remain in New York beyond this season.

Nowitzki had only scored 20 points in five games this season, but he nearly reaches that in the first quarter alone. Dallas keeps running plays for him, and those shots are barely touching the rim. Once, in a rare miss, he rushes a jumper and airballs it. Given how patient Nowitzki is in any other moment, it shows how much he’s gunning for this record, and how he’s getting it tonight.
