Sharks' Thornton, Couture game-time decision

Sharks' Thornton, Couture game-time decision

Logan Couture is trying to recover from a puck to his mouth. Thornton went into the boards awkwardly after taking a hit against Vancouver and gingerly skated to the bench. They are quality, high-end coaches and it's no surprise (the Oilers ) are doing well. Despite the Sharks edge in that category, the Oilers finished the season with the 5th best powerplay (22.9%), while the Sharks powerplay struggled tremendously finishing the regular season with the 5th worst powerplay (16.7%).

Rose and Spieth rise to top at US Masters

Rose and Spieth rise to top at US Masters

He said: "I did what I needed to do today". I have an opportunity. Protecting the lead, you don't want to play aggressive. But other than 2011, when he took a lead into the back nine, McIlory hasn't really been a big threat to win. Perhaps the most daunting name at Augusta National was Spieth, who began this Masters with a quadruple-bogey 9 on the 15th hole of the opening round and was 10 shots out of the lead when he trudged off the course Thursday.

Hull game a 'must-win' for Stoke, says Cameron

With Middlesbrough and Sunderland looking doomed, that has led many to consider the battle to avoid the drop being between Hull and Swansea, but Silva does not necessarily agree. The Tigers have taken just one point from their last 14 games on the road. We will be doing our best to do this on Saturday.

Crosby, Penguins edge Blue Jackets 4-1 for 2-0 series lead

Behind those goals, along with Marc-Andre Fleury's strong goaltending - who stopped 39 of 40 shots - the Penguins took the game.
