Steve Yzerman Is Coming Back To Detroit, And It's About Friggin' Time! Steve Yzerman Is Coming Back To Detroit, And It's About Friggin' Time!

It’s finally happening! Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman is spurning that lame expansion team in Seattle, and he’s ignoring lost franchises like the Rangers, and—of course—he kicked the Tampa Bay Chokemeisters to the curb, all so he could come home to Detroit. Yes, that thing that I knew in my heart of hearts was…

Another Coach Rejects The Disaster Area That Is Now St. John's Another Coach Rejects The Disaster Area That Is Now St. John's

A month after St. John’s snuck into its first NCAA Tournament in four years, the program is once again an absolute mess. Their coach, an iconic and beloved figure at the school, is gone; they have struck out repeatedly in searching for his replacement. A bunch of players are leaving, and the program literally has no…

While hitting for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Wednesday night, Vlad Guerrero Jr. crushed a poor baseball all the way out of a minor league ballpark in Pawtucket. And if the Toronto Blue Jays have any sense, Guerrero himself will also be exiting minor league parks very soon.

The Lightning Should Spend The Entire Summer With Paper Bags On Their Heads The Lightning Should Spend The Entire Summer With Paper Bags On Their Heads

Never has an NHL team had more reason to be embarrassed. First period of Game 1 aside, the Tampa Bay Lightning who won 62 games in the regular season failed to show up in their first-round series against the tremendously underestimated Columbus Blue Jackets, and they paid the price. As the Lightning’s biggest stars…

The L.A. Clippers pulled off an absurd comeback victory against the Golden State Warriors on Monday night, tying the first-round series at one-all by winning 135-131 after being down 94-63 in the third quarter. They were aided by a DeMarcus Cousins injury and a late Kevin Durant foul out, but the Clippers couldn’t…

Nathan MacKinnon's Wrist Is Trying To Kill The Flames All By Itself Nathan MacKinnon's Wrist Is Trying To Kill The Flames All By Itself

The Flames had one of those nights on Monday, going down 4-0 in 28 minutes before an eventual 6-2 Avalanche win to give Colorado a 2-1 series lead. They picked up two simultaneous penalties—including too many men on the ice—to give up the Avs’ first goal on a 5-on-3. They got outshot 56-29. They even let UMass product…

Joel Embiid Couldn't Keep A Straight Face While Apologizing For His Elbow On Jarrett Allen Joel Embiid Couldn't Keep A Straight Face While Apologizing For His Elbow On Jarrett Allen

Joel Embiid got hit with a flagrant foul late in the first half of his Sixers’ eventual series-tying 145-123 win over the Nets on Monday night when he unleashed the full force of his elbow into Jarrett Allen’s neck while trying to beat him in the paint. Allen got up right away, but my goodness, that elbow looks like…

Yasiel Puig Dingered Off Clayton Kershaw In His First At-Bat Against The Dodgers Yasiel Puig Dingered Off Clayton Kershaw In His First At-Bat Against The Dodgers

Yasiel Puig wasn’t exactly overflowing with love for his old club when he returned to Los Angeles on Monday as a Cincinnati Red. When talking about the crowds at Dodger Stadium, he said, “I’m sure that when I played here, there were more fans.” He also showed how little he cared for the past by showing up too late to…

DeMarcus Cousins Limps Out Of Game With Non-Contact Leg Injury DeMarcus Cousins Limps Out Of Game With Non-Contact Leg Injury

The Warriors are facing a scary situation early in their Game 2 battle against the Clippers, because DeMarcus Cousins had to head back through the tunnel after injuring his left leg while trying to make a steal.

Mitch Marner Is Everything For The Leafs Mitch Marner Is Everything For The Leafs

Probably the biggest story out of Monday night’s 3-2 Leafs win over the Bruins is the resurrection of Auston Matthews, who in the second period scored his first goal in the month of April to put Toronto in the lead for good. But if there’s an enduring image of this game for Leafs’ fans—particularly if they can hold…

Alex Ovechkin Just Dropped Andrei Svechnikov Alex Ovechkin Just Dropped Andrei Svechnikov

The Carolina Hurricanes scored the first blow of their Game 3 matchup with the Capitals, getting a goal from Warren Foegele to go up 1-0. But Alex Ovechkin responded with a literal counterpunch—a whole bunch of them, in fact—to knock down Andrei Svechnikov.

Nazem Kadri Is Done For The Rest Of The First Round Nazem Kadri Is Done For The Rest Of The First Round

The Braves Just Got Nine Years Of Ozzie Albies At An Insultingly Low Price The Braves Just Got Nine Years Of Ozzie Albies At An Insultingly Low Price

After signing Ronald Acuña to a team-friendly deal worth at most $12.4 million annually over the next decade, the Atlanta Braves have locked up another one of their young players with a dirt-cheap extension that’ll last beyond arbitration and through his entire 20s. Second baseman Ozzie Albies, currently at the…

Jordan Binnington Would Not Be Rattled Jordan Binnington Would Not Be Rattled

The unlikely savior of the St. Louis Blues’ season came through again in Game 1 of their first-round fight with the Winnipeg Jets. Rookie goalie Jordan Binnington, who showed up midseason to go 24-5-1 and pilot the Blues from last place to the playoffs, didn’t get overwhelmed by a sellout crowd in Manitoba and stopped…

The Columbus Blue Jackets Are Not Here To Get Steamrolled The Columbus Blue Jackets Are Not Here To Get Steamrolled

Some fans say that the 3-0 lead when you’re the Presidents’ Trophy winners playing Game 1 at home in the first round against an eight seed from Ohio is the most dangerous lead in hockey, and the Tampa Bay Lightning found that out the hard way in their 4-3 upset loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night.

Annoying Refs Bust Up A Party On Long Island, But Jordan Eberle Restarts It Annoying Refs Bust Up A Party On Long Island, But Jordan Eberle Restarts It

Nassau Coliseum was so frickin’ loud at the start of Game 1 in this first-round series between the Penguins and Islanders, and it somehow got even more deafening 30 seconds into the game. Tom Kuhnhackl came right off the bench for the Isles and set off an explosion in the arena, as he fired a wrister past Matt Murray…
