  • Brad Marchand coy about playing with Sidney Crosby on Penguins

    TORONTO – Brad Marchand might not be “Brad Marchand” anymore. There was a time his name carried an undeniable connotation. He was a pest. He was a injurious sneak. The President of the United States called him a “little ball of hate.” Not so much now,

  • Matt Kenseth OK with inspection rules change but wishes it was made earlier

    Matt Kenseth finished 9th at Chicago on Sunday (Getty). Matt Kenseth sees why NASCAR made the changes it did to the penalty structure surrounding laser inspection but would have liked to see the change made before the Chase began. NASCAR said Wednesday there would be no more minor penalties for teams whose cars fail laser inspection on the rear of the car. Both Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr.’s cars failed inspection by a slight amount after Sunday’s race at Chicago and NASCAR made the decision to penalize neither team after coming to the realization Johnson’s penalty would be much more impactful than Truex’s because Truex won the race.

  • Manchester United’s Mourinho: Dropped Rooney still “happy. He is my man, I trust him completely”

    Wayne Rooney was the subject of much drama from social media on Saturday after the Manchester United captain was dropped in favor of Juan Mata. Of course, that drama was quickly subdued when United rolled through Leicester City with four first half goals en route to a 4-1 win at Old Trafford. Mata had a goal and an assist, leading to several questions for manager Jose Mourinho after the match. He answered them. That’s not always a given. From the BBC: “Wayne Rooney is a big player for me, United and this country. he is my man, I trust him completely. He is happy.” “We have lost six points in the Premier League. We have four victories which is really important. Today it is about the security and

  • Mets must take path of least resistance to postseason

    By the way, you can stream Sunday’s game at Yahoo’s Sports Home, MLB index and video home beginning at 1:10 p.m. Once loaded with arms like Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler, New York is currently down to Noah Syndergaard, who’s currently battling strep throat, and Bartolo Colon, who is officially its steadiest and healthiest rotation option. Therein lies the problem for the Mets.

  • YamatoCannon on Splyce’s chances at League of Legends Worlds: 'We can definitely do some damage'

    At the beginning of 2016, they had just qualified for the EU LCS and were considered by many to be one of weaker teams in the region. Through much of Spring Split 2016, Splyce didn’t do much to change that perception. Splyce came out swinging in Summer.

  • Barclays adapts to fan base, announces changes for upcoming season

    At a media luncheon hosted by new Islanders owner Jonathan Ledecky over the summer, he made it a point at each table visited to mention how Barclays Center was the Islanders home for the future and how he was working tirelessly hand-in-hand with Brett Yormark to make the experience a winning one for players, their families and last, but never least, the fans. Then came the rumblings, whether they were leaked intentionally or unintentionally, of the team looking for a permanent home that was not in Brooklyn, a facility they can call their own. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but the feasibility of that is slim, at best. So we are back to improving the conditions of the facility the Islanders currently

  • Ben Rhodes leads first Truck practice at New Hampshire

    Richard Childress Racing’s director of competition says NASCAR made the right decision in altering its penalty for a laser inspection violation and adds that the team can’t look back on what such a penalty did for Ryan Newman’s Chase hopes. NASCAR penalized Newman 15 points for failing the Laser Inspection Station after the Southern 500 earlier this month. Newman failed to advance. The cars of Martin Truex Jr., who won the opening Chase race, and Jimmie Johnson both failed the Laser Inspection Station two weeks later after the Chicagoland race.

  • Report: John Farrell won’t rule out a postseason return for Pablo Sandoval

    It’s been a strange season for Red Sox’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who lost his starting role in spring training, went 0-for-6 in three regular season appearances, and underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in May. That was the last the Red Sox were supposed to hear about Sandoval until spring 2017, when he was expected to rejoin the team after a lengthy rehab stint in Florida. On Saturday, manager John Farrell was telling a different story. Per MLB.com’s Sam Blum, Farrell hinted that Sandoval could return to the team as soon as October, albeit in a very limited capacity. At the time of the surgery, it was all looking at the start of next Spring Training,”

  • Dan Girardi isn’t worried about ‘doubters’

    Hopefully, for the sake of Dan Girardi‘s sanity, he doesn’t hear all of the heckling. The often-criticized New York Rangers defenseman is aware that he has plenty of critics, however, and hopes to bounce back in 2016-17. That doesn’t mean he necessarily loses sleep about it, as the New York Daily News reports. “I want to come out here and prove I can play,” Girardi said. “I know I’ve got a lot of doubters out there, but I’m not really worried about what’s getting said around here or anywhere else. I’m worried about myself, the team and what I can do to help the team. Just play the best I can and not worry about anything else.” In some quarters, Marc Staal also absorbs at least a portion of the

  • Doc Rivers calls anthem protests “the most patriotic thing we can do”

    With the NBA season around the corner, there are a lot of eyes on how teams and players will handle the national anthem protests that have become prominent in the NFL. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers wholeheartedly supports the notion of his players participating, and hopes the whole team can figure out a statement to make together. If anyone wants to deny that, they just need to study the history of our country,” he told the Southern California News Group on Friday.

  • James Franklin’s Penn State teams now 0-7 vs. B1G East’s Big Three

    If you’re listening closely, you can hear the heat underneath James Franklin‘s seat warming ever so slightly.  Still. Saturday afternoon, Penn State never had a chance against Michigan in Ann Arbor, falling behind 28-0 in the first half before the Wolverines hit cruise control to ease into an embarrassingly easy 49-10 win in the Big House.  The Nittany Lions, with a rash of injuries up front, were outgained 298-40 in rushing yards, a microcosm of how dominated the visiting team was on the day. Even more disturbing is this game merely continued a trend under Franklin. Franklin-led Penn State teams have faced the Big Ten East’s heavyweights Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State seven times.  Not

  • Islanders have big expectations entering 2016-17

    There has been a metric ton of speculation around the Islanders since the summer, mostly around one central question: Are they any better today than they were at the final buzzer of the five-game loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning? ''[The Lightning series] was frustrating, but you learn from it and you move on,'' Travis Hamonic told reporters at media day on Thursday. Whether this club that lost their best two-way forward, Frans Nielsen, one-third of their vaunted fourth line in Matt Martin, and their top line right winger Kyle Okposo, is actually closer to bringing a fifth Stanley Cup to Long Island is up for debate. For players like Johnny Boychuk and Andrew Ladd, they're probably on their last contracts of their career, with one more window of opportunity to get themselves another ring.

  • No Wild training camp for Fleischmann after failed physical

    Tomas Fleischmann won’t take part in the Minnesota Wild’s training camp after all. As the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports, the team didn’t reveal details of his failed physical, although it’s worth mentioning that Fleischmann has been dealing with blood clot issues for some time. One cannot help but wonder if this is it for Fleischmann’s career.

  • Vacc's 3 Keys: Giants clash with defending division champs

    Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Three weeks into the season, the New York Giants have a golden chance to bury the defending NFC East champions. Right? "I wouldn't say that," Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. "It's a divisional opponent and these wins are huge. But what people aren't really saying, they are the defending champs. They are the NFC East champs. We have to dethrone them. We have to go through them because they have that title." Maybe that's true, but the Redskins are 0-2 and the Giants are 2-0, and a Giants win on Sunday afternoon could put Washington in such a deep hole from which it might never be able to recover. As early as it is,
