Bobrovsky is expected to start his fifth consecutive game Tuesday.

It came on the first shot Vancouver had generated in four power-play chances. Up until that point, Calgary had done an excellent job stifling the Canucks’ ninth-ranked power play. Calgary tied it when Garnet Hathaway’s alert pass found Tkachuk in the slot and the 19-year-old sent a backhander into the top corner. Tkachuk was back... Read More »

Derek Carr threw for 300 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders

Jay Cutler, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams provided a much-needed spark for Adam Gase’s offense, but the defense is starting to crumble on every level beyond the bad secondary. That’s bad news before facing the Panthers’ now-more-run-heavy attack. Cam Newton will complete a few needed deep shots while Christian McCaffrey helps by shooting past Miami’s... Read More »

The IR moves end a disappointing season for Pryor and a breakthrough year for Thompson.

The Braves said in a statement they “understand and accept the decision regarding the penalties that have been handed down.

Former Atlanta special assistant Gordon Blakeley, who was the team’s international scouting chief, was suspended from baseball for one year by commissioner Rob Manfred. “As... Read More »

Just how good is Shohei Ohtani, anyway?

He’s also allowed just 24 home runs (0.4 per nine) and a mere 384 hits, an impressive 6.4 per nine innings. In other words, Ohtani has the profile you’d expect from an accomplished young star with a triple-digit fastball. As a hitter, he has a career .286/.358/.500 slash line and has played a good deal...

2017 NFL trade deadline tracker: Latest deals, reaction

Benjamin will be reunited with Bills coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane, both of whom used to work in Carolina.

This was supposed to be a happy story.

To come out to Vegas and cover the first home game of the city’s first major league sports team. Inaugural games are often fraught with mixed feelings. It’s hard to watch the L.A. Chargers without thinking of the fans left behind in San Diego. It will feel the same way when the Raiders eventually kick... Read More »

Marlins Man is everywhere, so it’s only right that he should make an appearance at your Halloween party.

Has there ever been a 6-2 team heading into its bye with three legitimate possibilities to start at quarterback the rest of the way? You could make the case that it’s crazy to take Case Keenum out while the Vikings are winning, but he’s 25th in the league in touchdown passes and 22nd in yards... Read More »
