  • Sharks show they aren't overmatched
    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- So that's what 11 months of pent-up frustration looks like? The San Jose Sharks delivered some kind of statement Thursday night in Game 1 of their first-round matchup with the rival Los Angeles Kings. A 6-3 victory that checked off about a million things from a wish list they could have only dreamed of accomplishing in the series opener. To wit: • Make Jonathan Quick look human. Check. He was pulled after 40 minutes and victimized for five goals, which is half of what he gave up in the entire seven-game series last spring against San Jose. • Set a physical tone against one of the NHL's heaviest teams. Check. Big time. • As a follow to that, specifically target Kings star blueliner Drew Doughty and pound him at every chance. Check. • Get meaningful contributions from two players just returning to the lineup after missing most of the season recovering from knee injuries/surgeries. Check. Mark that as a goal...
  • Avs go 'all-in' for gutsy Game 1 win
    DENVER -- First he heard his nickname being shouted. Razor! In explaining how that become his nickname, Nathan MacKinnon rubbed his face where a playoff beard has started but needs work. The nickname is a bit of a dig at the inability of the Avalanche's 18-year-old star to grow a thick playoff beard. Regardless of the origin, it got his attention. In the first playoff game of his career -- and at this point the one playoff overtime of his career -- MacKinnon took a pass from Tyson Barrie. He wanted to attract a Wild defenseman behind Ilya Bryzgalov, which he did, and then he heard his name being shouted by Paul Stastny. He looked up. "I saw his big paddle there. The big thick blade he's got," MacKinnon said after the game. He backhanded a pass to Stastny and it was over. The Colorado Avalanche's 5-4 comeback win in overtime was complete, giving the young Avs a 1-0 series lead against a Minnesota Wild team that looked in...
  • First-round storylines
    J.A. Adande and Israel Gutierrez discuss the most intriguing matchups in the opening round of the NBA playoffs. J.A. Adande: How excited am I for the playoffs? I'm even fired up to watch the Eastern Conference. Yeah, the much-maligned Leastern conference. It turned out that seven of the eight teams have winning records, so it's not as littered with sub-.500 squads as we thought it would be. What it does have is a ton of playoff newcomers. Seventeen rotation players (by my count) are making their playoff debut in the East, including the Washington Wizards backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal. I won't hold them to the 36-point, 11-assist standard set by Derrick Rose in his first playoff game, but that does show the ceiling, and it speaks to the wild nature of these playoffs. Be prepared for something you weren't prepared for. Don't take it for granted, for example,...
