Sharks' Thornton played through ACL, MCL tears

Here's the way I see it: the Sharks can bring back Thornton and Marleau to two-year deals and promote players like Timo Meier and Kevin Labanc to permanent players. "We played every kind of game in that series", said Talbot. "But no excuses. They played a great series and hats off to them". The Sharks will formally provide an update later today. Read More

Genie Bouchard slams 'cheater' Maria Sharapova, who should be banned for life

Sharapova finished the first set with 24 winners to just six for Vinci. "I spent a long time without hitting any balls". As a result of the suspension, Sharapova lost her ranking. Sharapova's return isn't without controversy. She was understandably rusty but brushed off a nervous start to break Vinci at the first opportunity after losing her first service game, showing ominous signs with a string of big winners.

Instant analysis: Bears trade up, draft North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky

Trubisky projects as a good starting quarterback with a high floor and the potential to be great. All of the mock drafts in the world could not have predicted this. "You get yourself into trouble if you're not sticking with our philosophy of best player available", Pace said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. During those drives, Trubisky completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Read More

NHL Playoffs: Crosby, Bonino lead Penguins to Game 1 win over Caps

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby (87) celebrates his goal with the bench during the second period of Game 1 of the team's NHL hockey Stanley Cup second-round playoff series against the Washington Capitals, Thursday, April. Washington would have the first period's best chance with T.J. Oshie following an Ovechkin shot to the crease and hopping on the rebound. The Penguins are rolling again after eliminating Columbus, but the absence of Letang is significant after he logged 31:36 of ... Read More

National Basketball Association fines Oubre Jr. for kicking ball into stands

Wall , however, had to perform alone. Dennis Schroder is averaging 25 points and eight assists Paul Millsap is averaging 25 points and 8.7 rebounds. The team was completely unable to stop John Wall and Bradley Beal , for example, and struggled to score as well. Earlier in the series, the Hawks had strategized to limit Wall and Beal and make other Wizards the primary scorers - a plan that irked Morris. Read More

Thames, who returned to the majors this season after playing in South Korea for three years, felt the tug on his left hamstring five days ago, but played through the discomfort.

National Football League draft set to begin in Philadelphia

The report could have been a case of posturing by the Browns or factual information that was being leaked out. Now the Browns are a candidate to make a move Thursday - up from the No. That is unless there are any truths to the National Football League rumors about the Jaguars thinking about taking a quarterback , as explained by Jaguars Wire , at No. Read More

How to watch the 2017 NFL Draft

I think the top three players on the Bears' board might be Solomon Thomas, Jamal Adams and Malik Hooker , and I think it's most likely all three will be available when the third pick comes around. But with glaring needs at safety, cornerback, five-technique and tight end, and possibly a serious need at left tackle and wide receiver, I believe he has deemed Watson a luxury at No. Read More

Messi leads Barcelona to 7-1 victory; Real Madrid wins 6-2

It was the former who emerged triumphant on Sunday as the Argentine scored a stunning last minute goal that won the important tie for Barc, humiliated Dani Carvajal and - understandably - sent his great rival into an apocalyptic rage probably not seen last since CR7 confronted his manager after the unveiling of his statue in the Maderia islands.

Karlsson helps Senators edge Rangers 2-1 in Game 1

There have been moments in Sudarshan Maharaj's hockey career when he's had to deal with racial intolerance - including a time when he was playing in Sweden and had a Molotov cocktail thrown at his vehicle. Karlsson appears to be on another level despite playing with two small fractures in his left foot these last few weeks. Defenseman Ryan McDonagh led the Rangers with three points vs. Read More

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby (87) celebrates his goal with the bench during the second period of Game 1 of the team's NHL hockey Stanley Cup second-round playoff series against the Washington Capitals , Thursday, April.

Man United loss a wake-up call for Chelsea, says Cahill

I certainly think we can win our last six league games. "We are not going to get the trophy just because we have done well for the majority of the season". "Are Tottenham now favourites?" In Chelsea's previous game against Manchester United a warm-up injury for Marcos Alonso forced him off the starting eleven, and people might have expected his absence be one reason for the defeat at Old Trafford.

Fellaini flashpoint sole spark as Man United, City play out drab draw

City substitute Gabriel Jesus , returning after more than two months out injured, thought he had scored a dramatic late victor but his header was ruled out for offside.

Packers deal No. 29 pick, stock up for rest of draft

The Browns selected Miami tight end David Njoku. One pick later, the Pittsburgh Steelers took University of Wisconsin outside linebacker T.J.

Yet as Thompson stood in front of reporters after the first round, he claimed he didn't know who he was going to pick or whether he would even pick at No. Read More

The Chicago Bulls Are Who We Thought They Were

Even better for Boston is that they only were outrebounded by Chicago 44-41, basically negating what has to date been their lone kryptonite in this series. "And with guys like Gerald (Green ) out there and Avery (Bradley) and guys that can shoot the ball, you've got to pick your poison". "But when you're allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he's impossible to guard", Hoiberg said ". Read More

Hawks deliver early playoff KO, romp past Wizards 116-98

Millsap also had 14 rebounds, while rookie Taurean Prince chipped in with 16 points. John Wall almost recorded his third straight 30 point game, going 10 of 12 from the field and finishing with 29 points. Wall sparked the Wizards to a second-quarter comeback and helped them get within 15 points. Like the final scene in Christopher Nolan's Inception, it is up to Wall , their totem, their spinning top point guard, to just keep on spinning. Read More

After all the speculation that the Cleveland Browns would pass up on consensus No. 1 prospect Myles Garrett , it now looks like the team will ultimately take the former Texas A&M defensive end No. "I can actually know where I am going, know who I am going up against and know the schedule".

I know there wasn't too long left but when six minutes go up it's an very bad long time to see out.

Chiefs pull off huge trade with Bills to draft Mahomes

Chiefs pull off huge trade with Bills to draft Mahomes

At 32, Smith can not be seen as the long-term answer for the Chiefs , who will hope the move to get to Mahomes provides them with their quarterback of the future. And if Mahomes proves to be a quick study, Smith can be released after next season with a relatively minimal impact on the salary cap. The Chiefs , if they found their guy, would likely make the move believing they could keep him as an understudy for the next year under Alex Smith and then move on from Smith in 2018 when the ...

Browns will pick Myles Garrett first overall

The Bears, slated to draft third behind the 49ers, sent three other picks to San Francisco to swap first-round places and leapfrog them to select the North Carolina quarterback. The Browns also pick at No. 12 in Round 1, and it's possible Trubisky will be available at that time. And he said exactly the right thing to long-suffering Browns fans, saying he was targeting Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, one of the team's biggest rivals. Read More
