Best cross-country ski races

Cross-country skiing isn’t always about a peaceful Nordic schuss through the woods. The world’s best-known cross-country races have more in common with the New York City Marathon than with a winter jog in a park. They can include thousands of participants and even more spectators. Long and arduous, these races bring together the world’s best cross-country skiers and amateurs behind the same starting line. From Sweden and Japan to the US and Canada, these are the cross-country ski races to hit...

Athanasiou's OT goal give Red Wings 3-2 win over Bruins

DETROIT (AP) -- ��� Andreas Athanasiou has become a more consistent player this season, and the score sheet is starting to reflect it. Athanasiou tied it midway through the third period and scored 49 seconds into overtime to lift the Detroit Red Wings over the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Jack Sears adjusts to being USC’s backup quarterback

LOS ANGELES — Jack Sears remembers the text messages. After Sears replaced JT Daniels as USC’s starting quarterback against Arizona State on Oct. 27, his inspiring performance drew a flood of congratulatory notes from friends and family. It took about a week before Sears managed to respond to everyone. “It was overwhelming at first,” Sears said. Although the Sun Devils dealt the Trojans a 38-35 loss, Sears played well and seemed to give a spark to an offense that had been struggling for most of ...

Josh Rosen returns to L.A. in the midst of ‘frustrating’ rookie season with Arizona Cardinals

Josh Rosen has never shied away from speaking his mind, even when that proclivity might have led prognosticators to question his attitude more than his arm, so when the former Bruin-turned-Cardinals quarterback is asked to describe his first season in the NFL, he’s not about to sugarcoat the situation. The Cardinals are 2-8, fresh off their worst defeat of the season. The rookie took over in Week 4 for Sam Bradford, steepening his learning curve, and, to be quite frank, it’s been a brutal two mo...

Crosby Scores in Return, Penguins Pound Stars 5-1

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby returned from an upper-body injury to pick up a goal and two assists and the Pittsburgh Penguins drilled the Dallas Stars 5-1 on Wednesday night. The Pittsburgh captain missed three games after getting hurt last week, the latest setback during a forgettable early opening quarter of the season for the perennial Stanley Cup contenders. Crosby provided Pittsburgh with a needed spark. He set up Jake Guentzel for a goal less than 4 minutes into the game and provided a highl...

‘Calm’ Cal Petersen a pleasant surprise for Kings

LOS ANGELES — It was hard to guess how Cal Petersen might play in goal for the Kings when he was recalled from the Ontario Reign of the AHL on Nov. 12. Petersen had a good season at Ontario in 2017-18, with a goals-against-average of 2.58 in 41 games. He was at 4.29 in 10 games this season before his recall, but Ontario struggled and a goalie’s numbers are often inflated under those circumstances. Still, it would have been a lot to expect Petersen to come in and play like a veteran. In four game...

Without LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers are riddled with strife

CLEVELAND — For the franchise LeBron James left behind, things are not looking good. The Cleveland Cavaliers are dealing with a plummet back to earth, arguably harder than the first time James left in 2010. In addition to starting out 2-13 in their first 15 games, the Cavs are facing internal issues, as J.R. Smith accused the team of tanking and said he wanted to be traded. A day after Smith and the Cavaliers acknowledged he won’t be with the team as the front office works on a trade, Coach Larr...

MLB notebook: Machado addresses 'Johnny Hustle' flap

Manny Machado is about to break the bank in free agency, but he knows teams will have questions that must be answered first. One of those questions he's looking to address right away is criticism over comments he made during the National League Championship Series, when the then-Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop told The Athletic that being "Johnny Hustle" is not his "cup of tea." "When I was asked that question, I was definitely on the defensive, and I was wrong to answer it the way that I did...
