LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings came out swinging like a veteran boxer determined to salvage his pride. But in the end, it was the San Jose Sharks that delivered the knock-out punch. Not just in the game, but likely in the series. Patrick Marleau's backhand winner 6 minutes, 20 seconds into overtime capped a thrilling 4-3 win Tuesday night, San Jose now up three-nil in the series. "Just a huge, huge win for us,'" said Sharks captain Joe Thornton, who was a beast all night long. "Patty Marleau, to come up with that goal was just huge for us." Not that you would know walking into the visitors' dressing room at Staples Center that the Sharks now have the Kings on the ropes. Perhaps telling of the long journey that this deep and talented Sharks team believes is ahead this spring, it was business as usual in that room after the game. Just another day at the office for a team that has the 2012 Stanley Cup champs one game away...
WASHINGTON -- Albert Pujols reached 500 homers in a hurry. The Angels first baseman became the first major leaguer to hit his 499th and 500th homers in the same game, driving in five runs to help Los Angeles beat the Washington Nationals 7-2 Tuesday night. The three-time NL MVP connected twice off Taylor Jordan (0-3) -- a three-run homer in the first inning and two-run drive in the fifth -- to become the 26th player in big league history to reach the milestone. "It tastes better with a win," Pujols said. "I knew this year, it was going to happen, whether it was tonight, tomorrow, two months from now. So my goal was just to prepare myself every day to try to help this organization win." Pujols is the first player to collect his 499th and 500th homers in the same game, according to STATS. About three months past his 34th birthday, he's also the third-youngest to get to 500; ...
DETROIT -- This was the game in which the Boston Bruins established their dominance. If you watched only the first period of Boston's 3-0 win over Detroit on Tuesday night, you'd have a hard time imagining the Bruins losing another game in this postseason. They came out flying, got pucks deep and kept them there with relentless physical pressure, overwhelming the Red Wings and immediately taking the crowd out of it. The Joe Louis Arena crowd so disgusted that boos filled the building as the first period ended. The other two periods weren't so bad for the Bruins, either, with Tuukka Rask earning his fourth career playoff shutout. Instead of the home team coming out charging in the first home game of its 23rd consecutive playoff appearance, it was the visiting Bruins who dominated a Red Wings team whose youth is showing. Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton scored his first career playoff goal in the opening period, skating nearly untouched from his...
