  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

  • Sprint Cup drivers long for Indianapolis short track race

    Former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Matt Kenseth doesn’t tweet much, but when he does, he often has something to say. During Saturday’s Xfinity race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Kenseth posted just his fourth tweet in the last three weeks. He lamented that the Xfinity Series does not race at Lucas Oil Raceway, formerly known as Indianapolis Raceway Park (IRP). Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Chase Elliott quickly showed they agreed with Kenseth. The Xfinity Series raced there from 1992-2011 before the event was moved to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The last Xfinity race there was won by Brad Keselowski. Other former winners there include Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Greg

  • Ranieri on Leicester post-Kante: “Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going”

    Claudio Ranieri hasn’t lost his way with words over the summer. The Leicester City boss who famously refused to admit his team was in a title race for most of the Premier League season is keeping it cool in the wake of N'Golo Kante signing for Chelsea. Simply put, Ranieri says everything’s going to be fine. From Sky Sports: “Last season we lost Esteban Cambiasso and everybody was crying,” Ranieri said, after his side drew 1-1 with Celtic in a pre-season friendly. “Now we are crying because we lost Kante. Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going.” Kante was probably the most important part of Leicester’s title capture last season, but Ranieri’s system was also critical. The follow-up

He was faster, more accurate, hit harder and controlled the bout from start to finish to add Postol’s WBC belt to his collection. Crawford now has the WBO and WBC super lightweight belts and possibly a Nov. 5 date with Manny Pacquiao if the Filipino senator decides to fight again.

    It sounds like the Philadelphia Flyers have some work to do if they hope to avoid an arbitration hearing with Brayden Schenn. The session would take place on Monday, so the clock is ticking. While the differences in opinion aren’t outright enormous, the Flyers still need to clean up their cap situation, so every $1 million counts. That – plus the length of a deal – seem to be the issue for the 24-year-old forward and the Flyers, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman: With the Flyers aiming for a two-year agreement while Schenn just wants one, it’s not quite as simple as merely saying “split the difference.” Then again, that general logic could prove helpful. Perhaps the best path to a deal

    Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “expected a bit more” than fourth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull moved to within a point of the Italian marque in the Formula 1 constructors’ championship. Vettel claimed his second race win for Ferrari in Hungary last year, but was left to settle for P4 this time around after failing to pass Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo for third in the closing stages. The result extended Ferrari’s winless run in 2016, and allowed Red Bull to pull up just a point behind in the constructors’ championship. When asked by NBCSN if Ferrari now how to admit it was in a battle for second, Vettel said: “We never denied it! We have to fight Red Bull. “Our target is always

  • DeMarcus Cousins looks to make most of chance with US basketball team

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — DeMarcus Cousins considers the thought, and one of the NBA’s most recognizable scowls quickly turns into a bright smile. Without saying a word, it’s clear he agrees: For the first time under Mike Krzyzewski, the U.S. Olympic basketball team has a genuine offensive weapon in the middle. The Americans might even have the best center in the world. Cousins had 14 points and 15 rebounds in just 16 minutes of the Americans’ exhibition opener, a 111-74 victory over Argentina. The Sacramento Kings star can score inside and out, and gives the U.S. a dimension it hasn’t had while winning the last two gold medals. “DeMarcus is going to be a force in Rio,” teammate Klay Thompson said.

Things really heated up with talks of moving next to the New York Mets with a new arena in Queens, but apparently that’s not all. New York Newsday reports that the Islanders have met “several times” with the New York Racing Association to build a new arena in Belmont. This would mean that the Islanders would (wait for it) bring the team back to the Nassau area. It was emphasized that such talks were in early stages and that the ownership group is “weighing multiple options, including remaining in Brooklyn.” When it came to the rumors

Rosberg’s final Q3 lap saw him edge out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton for pole position by 0.143 seconds, but was partially completed under double-waved yellow flags shown following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Rosberg was adamant after the session that he lifted enough, and the stewards did not initially investigate it. However, over three-and-a-half hours after qualifying was completed, Rosberg has now been called in over a possible failure to slow for yellow flags during his Q3 lap. Rosberg will meet with the stewards at 19:45 local time in Hungary

    Meyers Leonard could be poised for a big season in Portland. His minutes jumped last season because he provided spacing. With Portland adding Evan Turner on the wing to go with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, any big who can stretch the floor is going to get run, and Leonard has turned himself into a stretch four. Leonard just hopes he can show what he can do at the start of the season — he’s still recovering from shoulder surgery. Here is what he told the Associated Press. “My hope is to be ready right around the start of the season,” he said. “It’s a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court.
