For example, Sidney Crosby , who did significant damage against the Capitals in Game 1, had too much space and freedom against the Capitals, and he made them pay. That's where your goalie needs to come up with a save, and I just didn't. "It's fun to win". Backstrom's rebound goal 3:44 into the third period cut the Penguins' lead to 4-2, but Malkin tipped a shot by Ian Cole past Grubauer at 5:31 on a play that was called goaltender interference on the ice and reversed on a successful coach's ...

Not only did they prove us wrong, the Saints traded a second-round pick next year to San Francisco in order to move into the third round for former Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara. 7 overall pick Mike Williams may not fill a glaring need for the Chargers, but it will make quarterback Philip Rivers a happy man. But the one he chose warrants questions, and for reasons beyond his coming off a broken leg of last October or that he was playing behind a defense that had six players taken in ...
