The NHL’s Music Man

from Carol Schram at Forbes, Imagine a job where you're required to mount a series of world-class concerts designed galvanize live audiences while also looking and sounding great on television. And by the way — you don't know when or where those events will happen. With just over three weeks until the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs kick off on April 10, that's the task charged to the National Hockey League's Chief Content Officer, Steve Mayer.... Mayer joined the NH...

WASHINGTON (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the decision says the Washington Capitals will go to the White House on Monday to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship.

Can blazing Washington wideout Andre Baccellia improve on a breakout Rose Bowl in 2019?

Wide receiver Andre Baccellia ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash (4.38 seconds) at the Husky Combine last Friday. But can the speedy redshirt senior make another leap after turning in an impressive end to the 2018 season?

Red Wings’ Defense Needs Islanders’ Treatment

There’s not much left in the 2018-19 season for the Detroit Red Wings. But as the organization prepares for the 2019-20 campaign, they could learn a thing or two from the team they just beat: the New York Islanders. After allowing the more goals during the 2017-18 season than any team over the past 10 seasons, new head coach Barry Trotz refined his team’s defensive approach. It’s already paying off – they’ve allowed the fewest goals so far this season. The Red Wings would greatly benefit from t...

USC men’s basketball season in review: Trojans never took flight in 2019

USC basketball coach Andy Enfield was already a little irritated. It was mid-October, three weeks before the Trojans were to play their first game. About half of the team’s scholarship players were sidelined for practices. Their 5-on-5 workouts were postponed. “It’s been the most unusual preseason in our coaching careers,” Enfield lamented at the time. A critical period for a reworked roster to jell was lost. The early setbacks were signs the Trojans’ season was poised for trouble. They never se...

Is Trump really about to attack Venezuela?

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the U...

Carson refinery fire will likely fuel price hikes at gas pump

The Marathon Petroleum refinery looms in the background behind a Shell and Chevron gas station in Carson on Monday, Mar. 18, 2019. Gas prices will probably rise following the fire at the nearby Phillips 66 refinery on Friday. (Photo by Scott Varley, Daily Breeze/SCNG) A partial shutdown of the Phillips 66 refinery in Carson — when combined with temporary closures of two other facilities on the West Coast — began driving up pump prices Monday in Southern California, according to oil industry e...

Giants draft bust Ereck Flowers gets a second chance with division rival

Former New York Giants offensive lineman Ereck Flowers might go from hurting the Giants in 2018 to helping them in 2019. After getting cut last season, Flowers agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Washington Redskins on Monday. The 24-year-old Flowers will look to re-establish himself in Washington, D.C. Flowers hasn't lived up to expectations after being selected No. 9 overall by the Giants in the 2015 NFL draft.

Rangers Are This Season’s Unluckiest Team

The New York Rangers have had a season like no other in the team’s recent history. As a club that used to be a perennial Stanley Cup contender, the Rangers are used to getting good breaks and lucky rewards. That is seemingly the nature of the playoffs. One bounce here and one tip there, the team that takes advantage of the lucky breaks usually wins. But now the Rangers are experiencing the other side, the unlucky one. They’re a team that puts forth a plentiful amount of effort night in and night...

WTF: An ‘Alien vs Predator’ Football Video Game Was Once in Development for SEGA Genesis

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was ...

Islanders Survive Wild – Nelson Scores OT Winner

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Brock Nelson scored 1:04 into overtime and the New York Islanders beat Minnesota 3-2 Sunday to move into a tie atop the Metropolitan Division. Anders Lee scored for the fourth straight game and Jordan Eberle added a goal for New York, which has won five of seven. Thomas Greiss made 32 saves. The Islanders are tied with Washington with 91 points with 10 games remaining, but currently hold the tiebreaker with a greater scoring differential. In the extra session, Nelson converted ...

10 hours that changed the NFL: Inside the Odell Beckham Jr. trade

The Giants wanted two first-round picks for Beckham, but I believe Gettleman knew that bounty might be tough to get because Beckham had proven himself a difficult player to handle. The Browns discussed some other players. But Gettleman, smarting from the prospect of losing safety Landon Collins in free agency to Washington (still hard to fathom why the Giants didn't franchise their unquestioned defensive leader, Collins, at $11 million for 2019), had studied one Cleveland player he wanted: ...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament Midwest Region breakdown

North Carolina was the third team from the ACC to receive a No. 1 seed, following Duke and Virginia. Its selection is slightly more controversial. The two best wins on the Tar Heels’ resume came against the Blue Devils when they were without their best player. In both instances, their archrivals did not have their star freshman Zion Williamson on the floor. Williamson suffered a mild knee sprain in the early minutes during their first meeting in late February when his shoe split and later was ou...

UCLA men’s basketball kept out of postseason tournaments on Selection Sunday

The inevitable is now official as UCLA will miss the postseason for the second time in four years. The Bruins did not make the NCAA Tournament field announced Sunday and didn’t make the cut for the NIT. The Pac-12 sent three teams to the NCAA Tournament, with conference tournament champion Oregon earning the automatic bid and regular-season champ Washington and Arizona State earning at-large bids. Colorado, which finished with the fourth-best overall record in the Pac-12, was the only team in th...

No NCAA Tournament, NIT for USC basketball

Last year on Selection Sunday, USC’s basketball team met at a banquet hall at the Galen Center in anticipation of receiving an at-large berth for the NCAA Tournament. There was no suspense this time. The Trojans were not selected for the NCAA Tournament, nor did they receive an at-large berth for the NIT, officially ending their season. Following a loss to Washington in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament last Thursday, the Trojans ended with a 16-17 overall record. It was the first time ...

Bargain shopping: Ten remaining NFL free agents who could intrigue Vikings

It's no coincidence three of the remaining NFL free agent offensive linemen you've seen the Vikings connected to through the past week — ex-Titans guard Josh Kline, ex-Falcons tackle Ryan Schraeder and ex-Vikings guard Nick Easton — would not mess up the Vikings' positioning for a possible 2020 third-round draft pick through the league's compensatory formula. Kline was recently cut by Tennessee; Schraeder, too, in Atlanta. Easton is the Vikings' own free agent. Those designations mean no signing...

Birmingham baseball feels absence of Erik Rivas, Johnny Tincher in loss to Arcadia

ARCADIA >> Arcadia sophomore first baseman Mikey Easter has an I.Q. for baseball that is well above average. A level of sophistication that continues to be noticed as he shifts his 6-foot frame around the batter’s box and turning contact into runs. Easter went 2-for-3 with a two-run RBI triple in the third inning as Arcadia earned a signature win over defending L.A. City Section champion Birmingham 4-1 in the first round of the Babe Herman Tournament Saturday night. “For me it’s just about comin...
