USC basketball looks to snap another skid – this one to Arizona

LOS ANGELES — Enough time has passed since the USC basketball team last beat Arizona that only one player is left on the roster who was a part of the victory. Bennie Boatwright, the Trojans’ sharp-shooting senior forward, was a freshman in 2016 when the Wildcats were toppled in a quadruple-overtime thriller, scoring 15 points in 41 minutes as one of USC’s five players in double figures in the upset. After one practice earlier this week, Boatwright recalled the lively home crowd that, for at leas...

Trump tells Pelosi he plans to deliver State of Union next week in House chamber as planned

By JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump made clear Wednesday that he intends to deliver his State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress next week, telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a letter that there are no security concerns stemming from the government shutdown and “therefore I will be honoring your invitation.” Pelosi had asked Trump to postpone the Jan. 29 address. But Trump wrote back: “It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not de...

Player and Puck Tracking in the NHL

Mark Giordano and John Tavares are keen to see what player and puck tracking brings to the NHL. They're just not exactly sure how all the data — the new technology is expected to provide as many as 10,000 statistical categories compared to the hundreds the league now has — will impact the on-ice product, if at all. "A lot of analytics have come into the game in recent years, but I still believe you really have to watch the game and the eye test is the best one," said Giordano, captain of t...

Struggling Oilers fire GM Peter Chiarelli

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Edmonton Oilers have fired president of hockey operations and general manager Peter Chiarelli amid another season that has failed to live up to expectations. The team announced Chiarelli’s abrupt dismissal Wednesday in the aftermath of its third consecutive loss. Edmonton has lost 12 of its past 16 games going into the […]

Trump, others agitated by Giuliani’s uneven response to Russia probe

By JONATHAN LEMIRE and ERIC TUCKER NEW YORK — Rudy Giuliani’s latest media blitz, which was filled with a dizzying array of misstatements and hurried clarifications, agitated President Donald Trump and some of his allies, who have raised the possibility that the outspoken presidential lawyer be at least temporarily sidelined from televised interviews. Trump was frustrated with Giuliani, according to three White House officials and Republicans close to the White House who were not authorized to s...

Way-too-early Pac-12 football predictions: Can Washington rule the North once again?

Unlike last season, there's no clear favorite in the North. The Huskies were hit hard by departures, and Oregon is on the rise again. Is there a shifting of power in the conference's dominant division?

When the Red Wings Defeated the NHL All-Stars

Believe it or not, there was a time when the Detroit Red Wings took on the NHL All-Stars – and defeated them. No, this wasn’t a contest against the rivalry-era Colorado Avalanche or an Edmonton Oilers team from the 1980s. Rather, the Red Wings played against a collection of all-stars from around the NHL. From 1947 through 1968—with the exception of 1951 and 1952 – the defending Stanley Cup champion competed against the league’s top players in the annual NHL All-Star Game. The Red Wings faced off...

In deal between LAUSD and teachers, some parties gained ground while others gave it up

After sighing a breath of relief Tuesday morning on the picket line outside Taft High School, teachers returned to campus in the afternoon to vote on a tentative agreement reached between UTLA and LA Unified School District like UTLA’s other 30,000 members. The ew contract secures a 6 percent wage increase — 3 percent retroactive to the 2017-18 school year and another 3 percent retroactive to July 1, 2018 — and commits to a gradual decrease in class sizes over the coming three years, hiring of m...

Hertl completes hat trick, Sharks beat Caps 7-6 in overtime

WASHINGTON (AP) — Logan Couture needed a new stick for overtime. So convinced the San Jose Sharks were heading toward another loss, Couture went to the bench and broke his stick over the boards. Then he looked up and saw Evander Kane score the tying goal with one second left. Minutes later, Tomas Hertl completed […]

Islanders Getting a Trotz Culture Change

Barry Trotz didn’t scan the rafters for the banner. Back in Washington, he never once looked up for the championship flag hanging high above the home ice of the Capitals. Yet when he turned around for the national anthem, Trotz said he saw the big white letters standing out on the red banner: “STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS 2018” around the Capitals logo. When the anthem was over, he turned back to the visitors’ bench and got back to work on trying to earn some more banners to hang — in New York. New Yo...

Will helping fix the teachers strike help Eric Garcetti become president?

In some potentially important ways, Eric Garcetti’s presidential hopes got a lift Tuesday morning when the Los Angeles mayor helped end the teachers strike in the nation’s second-largest school district. But Garcetti’s role in the settlement between officials of Los Angeles Unified and the teachers union is hardly a springboard to the White House — and it might even have a downside, political observers said in interviews. The pluses are clear for Garcetti, who is thought to be preparing to launc...

Despite Pelosi request to delay, Trump moves ahead with State of the Union

By JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON — The White House is moving forward with plans for President Donald Trump to deliver his State of the Union speech next week in front of a joint session of Congress — despite a letter from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requesting he delay it. The White House sent an email to the House Sergeant-at-Arms asking to schedule a walk-through in anticipation of a Jan. 29 address, according to a White House official who, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity because they wer...

“Expect The Unexpected” From Evgeny Kuznetsov

from Alex Prewitt of Sports Illustrated, Beyond the overarching cultural shock of moving halfway around the world, Evgeny Kuznetsov was struck by a few smaller unfamiliarities upon finally joining the NHL in March 2014. Receiving per diem on road trips, for instance, was an entirely foreign concept in his native Russia. Ditto for dining alongside coaches at team meals and dumping the puck into the offensive zone. But nothing—absolutely nothing—bothered the Washington Capitals center more ...

Addressing The Five Game Losing Streak For The Washington Capitals

from Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post, “For the last two years or so ... things haven’t come easy," goaltender Braden Holtby said. "That’s something that can be lost in the fact of winning. Because things weren’t easy last year. We had to grind our way through to get where we were, and that’s going to be what we have to do this year. We’re in one of those little lulls where we’re going to make sure that we come to work with the right mindset of putting it all out there and gett...

Supreme Court takes up gun rights for 1st time in 9 years

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Tuesday it will take up its first gun rights case in nine years, a challenge to New York City’s prohibition on carrying a licensed, locked and unloaded handgun outside the city limits. The court’s decision to hear the appeal filed by three New York residents and New York’s National Rifle Association affiliate could signal a revived interest in gun rights by a more conservative court. The case won’t be argued until October. The challengers are r...

Blues’ Jaden Schwartz: Time to Panic?

It was a microcosm of the entire season: Jaden Schwartz of the St. Louis Blues sprinted away from his defensive zone towards a loose puck in front of an empty net. He got there first and attempted to chip the puck over Ottawa Senators defenseman Christian Wolanin, whose last resort was to dive to make the play. The puck, however, had other ideas and caromed off Wolanin’s stick behind the net. As the clock ticked down to zero, Schwartz lifted his eyes to the sky, wondering when his run of b...

Matthews & Marner Paired as Maple Leafs Search for Answers

TORONTO — Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner are the last players off the ice at the conclusion of every Toronto Maple Leafs’ pre-game warmup. As the in-arena music blares and fans press against the glass looking for a souvenir, the talented duo flings pucks back and forth, attempting trick shots and high-wire moves with youthful exuberance. They’ve rarely skated on the same line in their careers, but the struggling Leafs seem willing to push that button in hopes of shaking their recent 3-7-0 tail...

Alex Smith takes in Wizards game with large apparatus on injured leg

Updates on Washington quarterback Alex Smith's condition since having surgery on his injured leg in November and part of that has been Smith's low public profile since getting out of the hospital. Smith reportedly suffered compound and spiral fractures in his leg and dealt with a post-surgical infection that added further complications to an already serious injury. There have been scattered reports about the team's hope that he'll be able to play during the 2019 season, but t...

4 Questions the Penguins Will Face After the All-Star Break

The Pittsburgh Penguins will head into the 2019 All-Star break with a 26-16-6 record, good for 58 points and fourth place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The team is holding on to the second wild-card spot for dear life despite having the fourth-best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. There’s still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the Penguins though, especially for a team that was tied for the fewest points in the East on Nov. 20. Pittsburgh is home to multiple all-time...

Is Hockey Living Dr. King’s Dream?

On Monday, Jan 21, much of the United States will enjoy a holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Many will celebrate the legacy of the slain civil rights leader in parades. Some will attend services commemorating Dr. King and his work. Others will ponder “the dream” that still resonates from his famous speech given at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. Who Broke Hockey’s Color Barrier? Sports has been an arena in which there have been many strides made in seeing Dr. King’s speech come to l...
