Injuries hitting Knights, Red Wings

“I assume he might be out for a little bit but I don’t know that answer,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said after the game.

It was announced on Wednesday that Backes has been suspended for three games by the NHL for the hit. He received a roughing penalty on the play.

To replace Nielsen on the roster, the Red Wings announced they will recall forward Evgeny Svechnikov from their American Hockey League affiliate in Grand Rapids on Thursday. He is expected to be in the lineup against Vegas.

Svechnikov, 21, has seven goals and 22 points in 52 games with Grand Rapids this season. He appeared in two games with Detroit late last season and did not record a point. But he scored the winning goal in the shootout in a 5-4 win over the Ottawa Senators on April 3.

The arena was decorated for them, with the scoreboard showing the school’s mascot, an eagle, and banners celebrating “Stoneman Douglas state champions.”

Then the Stanley Cup came out, and the players got a chance to hold it aloft.

“Their jaws dropped,” Howie Borrow, one of the Keepers of the Cup who works with the NHL Hall of Fame, told the Miami Herald. “There was kind of a bit of disbelief. Really a thrilling moment for them to see it.”

On Feb. 25, Stoneman Douglas won the state championship of the Statewide Amateur Hockey of Florida league. Less than two weeks earlier, 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at Douglas, including 14 students. One of the victims was Jaime Guttenberg, the sister of junior varsity member Jesse Guttenberg.

After the championship game, the players returned to the school and placed their medals on memorials to those who were slain on Feb. 14.

Washington captain Alex Ovechkin is closing in on a major milestone as he enters the contest just two goals short of 600 career goals and will be just the 20th player in NHL history to achieve that total. In addition, Ovechkin would become the NHL’s first player to join the 600 goals club since Jarome Iginla on Jan. 4, 2016 and the only player to make his NHL debut after the 1996-97 season.

If C.J. McCollum finds a shot he likes, he won’t hesitate to take it.

McCollum proved it Monday night when he scored 25 of his 32 points after halftime, including the tiebreaking basket with 56.5 seconds remaining in overtime, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Chicago Bulls 124-120.

It was almost a replay of the most recent home loss for the Stars, when they went up 3-2 on Washington late in the third only to give up the tying goal less than a minute later and lose in overtime.

“I didn’t think we played great, but we had a 1-0 lead in the third period,” coach Ken Hitchcock said. “This is disappointing. Some days are perfect, and some days aren’t. To have a 1-0 lead in your own building and give up the two goals in your own building is disappointing.”

The Stars went ahead when Tyler Seguin got his stick caught up with Boone Jenner but managed to get the puck across the ice to Klingberg. The defenseman’s wrist shot was tipped by Shore and trickled past Bobrovsky.

Steelers’ time off due to regular-season success is good problem to have

Terrell Owens, wide receiver (1996-2003 San Francisco 49ers, 2004-05 Philadelphia Eagles, 2006-08 Dallas Cowboys, 2009 Buffalo Bills, 2010 Cincinnati Bengals) Owens is fifth on the NFL’s all-time touchdown list, with 156 scores. He was a five-time First-Team All-Pro and had 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards.

Brian Urlacher, linebacker (2000-2012 Chicago Bears) The NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2005, Urlacher was selected to eight Pro Bowls and the NFL’s 2000s All-Decade team.

The Falcons are better equipped to hold leads and make game-changing sacks and takeaways than they were a year ago.

The Giants will look to do better with their next hire, finding a coach who can lead them to more consistent success on the sidelines.

Last year, the Falcons went to Super Bowl LI as the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. This year, they fell to third place in the NFC South and the last wild-card spot.

But now that Atlanta has survived the proverbial hangover — it’s the only repeat playoff team in the conference — the Falcons can’t be counted out to advance to another conference championship.

The Super Bowl hangover is gone.

And now the party might just be getting started again.

Atlanta’s third straight win, a 34-20 humbling of visiting Tampa Bay, kept the Falcons (7-4) on track for a playoff berth while serving as a reminder of just how dangerous this team will be if it gets there.

Reason for pessimism: The Falcons face a rough remaining schedule. Home-and-away matchups against New Orleans (9-3) are sandwiched around a Monday night road game vs. Tampa Bay (4-8). The season finale is against visiting Carolina (8-4), which beat Atlanta earlier this season.

Biggest remaining game: In a conference where 10 wins might be needed for a wild-card spot, the Falcons probably need to upend the Saints at home Thursday night for their best chance of hitting that target.

If they fall short …: Blame an early-season three-game losing streak that included home losses to Buffalo and Miami for putting Atlanta in a tough spot heading into December.

Riley Reiff, OT, Minnesota Vikings: Reiff was injured during the second half against the Panthers and had to be helped off the field. He was declared questionable to return because of an ankle injury. Reiff was spotted in a walking boot after the game.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on Gabbert as next year’s starter if Palmer retires: “The way he’s playing right now, I’d be very, very comfortable. I think it’s a possibility.”

Gronkowski on his touchdown celebration with Cooks: “That was not planned or anything. We got yelled at. We’re not allowed to talk about celebrations. That’s what we got told. But, I kind of want to talk about it, but I kind of don’t because I’ll get in trouble, so I don’t know what to do. So, it just happened on the spot. It wasn’t planned. We’ll just keep it there.”nike_chargers_550-180x180

Tarasenko looked good out there, too.

The Falcons fail to corral a short kickoff by the Seahawks, who recover to regain possession. Seattle will start its drive inside the Atlanta 15 with 8:08 to play in the half.

Seattle nearly picks off a Matt Ryan pass near the goal line, but it can’t secure the ball and it falls incomplete.

Turnover, Seahawks. Seattle fails to take advantage of Lockett’s return as Russell Wilson’s second pass of the game is picked off by Desmond Trufant, who returns it 43 yards to the Seahawks’ 35.

Redskins running back Rob Kelley left Sunday’s 38-30 loss to the Vikings with knee and ankle injuries and did not return.

Saints running back Daniel Lasco was taken off the field by ambulance after suffering a spine injury on a second-quarter kickoff. Saints coach Sean Payton said following the game that all signs were positive with Lasco.

Brayden Schenn also had two goals and two assists, and Jake Allen stopped 26 shots for the NHL-leading Blues (16-5-1).

Tarasenko’s fight came in the second period. In just the third scrap of his six-year career, the skilled forward tangled with Matt Benning and landed a solid right hand much to the crowd’s delight.

It sure sounds like the perfect time to let Jimmy Garoppolo make his San Francisco debut when the 49ers return to action Nov. 26 against Seattle.

It’s also not that simple.

“The more we Hall of Famers talk about this — and we talk about it a lot — we realize we can no longer sit silent,” Morgan wrote. “Many of us have come to think that silence will be considered complicity. nike_steelers_2529

Miami decides to go for it on a fourth-and-1 on its 48.

In addition, the Braves were banned from signing Robert Puason, a 14-year-old Dominican shortstop with whom they had reached a verbal agreement, when he becomes eligible for a contract on July 2, 2019. MLB said Puason agreed to sign with the Braves because the team agreed with his agent to deals with six other players for “inflated” signing bonuses.

Olive Sagapolu, DT, Wisconsin — The massive 6-2, 346-pound Samoan had a great all-around game against Iowa. Sagapolu helped the Badgers hold Iowa to 25 rushing yards and added a sack that was nearly a safety late in the first half of Wisconsin’s 38-14 win.

Touchdown, Carolina. The Panthers are pulling away from Miami and now lead 31-7. Cameron Artis-Payne takes a handoff, runs through an arm tackle at the line of scrimmage and goes into the end zone for the 12-yard score.

Damien Williams is brought down behind the line of scrimmage by Luke Kuechly and the Dolphins turn it over on downs.

Touchdown, Carolina. Two plays after Samuel’s drop, the Panthers punch it in and take a 24-7 lead. Newton throws a screen pass to Devin Funchess, who avoids Miami’s tacklers for a 28-yard touchdown.

“That was good… but I feel as if we’re still scratching the surface with our potential and things we can do as a whole in this offense,” Newton said. “We left a lot of plays out there.

“There’s nothing saying we hit our pinnacle yet and there’s nothing saying we can’t get better. That’s the thing we’ve just got to be optimistic about.”

With less than two minutes left, the Jaguars led 13-7 and those on Cleveland +7 were seconds away from winning their bet. Then, for the third time in three possessions, DeShone Kizer turned the ball over, this time fumbling it away on a sack that resulted in a Telvin Smith touchdown. That score gave Jacksonville a 19-7 lead, which would stand as the final score after a backdoor cover attempt by the Browns came up short.nike_steelers_716

Either way, watch both guys play. They’re a pleasure to see in action.

Matthews is the main attraction, however, and probably the biggest reason I find myself eagerly watching what Toronto does. Everyone loves goals and Matthews scores a lot of them, but what makes him seemingly different is the way he scores them.

While Darnold may need some more seasoning, we’re splitting hairs here. Both quarterbacks have NFL potential, but it appears Rosen will be better out of the gate.That’s not a shot at Darnold, it’s just a compliment to Rosen.

Either way, watch both guys play. They’re a pleasure to see in action.

In a conference where the Patriots, Steelers and Chiefs rule, the Titans have yet to prove they’re up to the same passing pop. Given that their constant pass defense woes leave them prone to getting into higher-scoring affairs than they would like, Mariota has to go from solid to spectacular. That’s not an easy ask.

Thompson, meanwhile, averaged 4.6 yards per carry as the third-down back and rushed for two scores. He is tied for the team lead with 39 catches, good for 510 yards and four touchdowns. Starting running back Rob Kelley is already on IR.

Onwuasor and his Ravens are now sitting in a wild card spot and in the AFC with several inconsistent teams fighting for the wild card spots, the Ravens and their 6th-ranked defense are sitting pretty for now.

Each of the four suspension lines goes over a precision pulley and is attached to a computer-controlled spooling mechanism.

Colin Kaepernick’s camp, NFL argue over Roger Goodell meeting invitation

Colin Kaepernick’s attorney on Tuesday refuted the NFL’s claim that the former 49ers quarterback didn’t respond to an invitation to meet individually with commissioner Roger Goodell, Yahoo Sports reported.

The day showed just how fraught the two sides’ ongoing dealings are against a backdrop of Kaepernick’s labor grievance, accusing NFL owners of collusion, and players’ social-issue concerns and the league’s response to them.

Kaepernick remains open to meeting with Goodell individually, the player’s camp told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday, but only to discuss social-justice issues. Lockhart also says Goodell is willing to meet one-on-one to talk about social activism but won’t agree to a mediator being present.

Notes Yahoo Sports: “The back and forth between Kaepernick’s camp and the NFL has provided a window into the frustration that is developing between the league and players in recent weeks.”

The highlight of Sunday’s slate of late games was Cowboys vs. Falcons in Atlanta, where Dallas was forced to operate without running back Ezekiel Elliott for the first time this season. The Falcons were able to use the timing of Zeke’s NFL-imposed suspension as an advantage, beat the Cowboys and keep pace in the NFC wild-card race.

Sunday’s night cap was game that would have been more appealing had the Broncos held up their end of the deal. Denver, playing off a four-game (now five) losing streak and sitting at the bottom of the AFC West, lost to New England, which recently has looked more like the team many expected to see in 2017.

“I’ve had tough games before,” Peterman said following the loss. “I’m going to learn a lot from this and make sure it never happens again.”

Despite the awful performance by Peterman, McDermott wasn’t ready to commit to Taylor for the remainder of the season. broncos_092-500x500

Broncos receiver Isaiah McKenzie also just left the game with an apparent leg injury.

The Giants keep Denver out of the end zone on fourth-and-goal. After a Bennie Fowler catch brought the Broncos to within inches of the goal line, C.J. Anderson took a fourth-down handoff and was met by a group of Giants defenders. He was brought down inches shy of the end zone and Denver turned it over on downs.

Broncos receiver Isaiah McKenzie also just left the game with an apparent leg injury.

The NFL’s game operations manual says during the national anthem, “players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking.”

There will be no changes to the league’s anthem policy, but the league is also not expected to discipline any players who may not follow the manual’s instructions to the letter.

Los Angeles (2-0-0) will be well rested for the matchup with three days off since its convincing 4-1 road victory against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Anze Kopitar registered two goals and Jonathan Quick made 24 saves in the win over their divisional rivals. Coach John Stevens expects his two stars to revert to form after subpar 2016-17 campaigns. Kopitar could never find his stride offensively while Quick was limited to 17 games due to a groin injury. Stevens has installed a new offensive scheme and in the early going the Kings appear to be more aggressive.

Ramirez, who was on the bench to start Game 1, drove in two more runs with a seventh-inning double before Bradley’s homer bounced off Reddick’s glove and into the stands behind the Pesky Pole.

Score, results, highlights from Week 6 game in Kansas City

Touchdown. Another huge mistake by Trevor Siemian, another interception, this time returned for a touchdown. Janoris Jenkins made Denver pay for Siemian’s ill-fated pass and returned the pick 43 yards for a score with just 48 seconds left in the first half. Siemian was injured on the play, and backup QB Brock Osweiler entered the game on the Broncos’ next series. 17-3, Giants

Field goal. The Broncos were able to drive all the way to the Giants’ 10-yard line before their drive stalled, and Brandon McManus made a 28-yard field goal to get Denver on the board with 4:21 left in the first half. The key play of the drive was a 40-yard Trevor Siemian pass to Demaryius Thomas. 10-3, Giants

Turnover. Trevor Siemian overthrew a pass intended for Demaryius Thomas, and the ball landed in the arms of Landon Collins, who returned the interception 21 yards to the Giants’ 35-yard line.

The Giants won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half.

The Broncos took the field for pregame warmups wearing their all-blue uniforms for the first time in 2017. The Giants took the field a few minutes later.

His mobility was quickly on show in Minnesota, with Hundley successful in making a number of throws on the run.

Rodgers’ leadership and composure in the biggest moments, which he showed eight days ago as he led another stunning late game-winning drive to defeat the Cowboys, understandably will be tough for the inexperienced Hundley to replicate.

However, there was reason to be encouraged by the poise Hundley demonstrated against the Vikings, as he showed a willingness to hang in the pocket and the awareness to know when to step up and avoid the pass rush, doing so on his sole touchdown throw to Davante Adams.tigers_069
