Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid celebrates after scoring against the Anaheim Ducks during the second period in Game 5 of a second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in Anaheim, Calif., Friday, May 5, 2017. Draisaitl whiffed on breakaway, but the puck had enough forward momentum to slide under Gibson 2:45 into the game. Then his no-look backhand, off a feed from Milan Lucic, fooled Gibson at 7:22.
Washington's Braden Holtby allowed three goals on 14 shots on Saturday, meaning he's now allowed six goals on 35 shots this series. It was Karlsson's first goal and seventh point of the playoffs. Last we saw these two together, they were chumming it up at the NHL All-Star game , but we should have known whatever weird friendship that was formed that weekend wouldn't last long.
It would shatter the "non-aggression pact" that has been in place between the clubs in recent years. However, that has not stopped interest in his services and there have been strong reports recently that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool have been keen on signing him up.
The 91-run stand finally ended when T Natarajan (1-32) had Kishan caught at deep midwicket and in the next 10 deliveries, both Smith and Suresh Raina (39) smashed two sixes and three boundaries combined to ease the required run rate. The left-hander did not score a boundary until he had faced 15 balls, but once he had gauged the conditions, he upped the tempo. At the half-way stage, KXIP were 81 for one.
While former club Chelsea , who originally sold Lukaku to Everton in 2014 for £28 million, are now the favourites for his signature this summer, United are also believed to be interested following Zlatan Ibrahimovic's knee ligament injury.

Things had looked extremely rosy for Blackburn early on as they stormed into a 2-0 lead - Scottish global midfielder Charlie Mulgrew's goal, a delightful free-kick, the pick of the two.
Beal, who was 11 of 16 from the floor, said the conversation at halftime revolved around knowing the defense wasn't up to Washington's standards. "For us, our Bible begins with transition defense, and if it's not there we're just not ready to go", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the game.
We're very happy with our performance, the three goals and, above all, to have kept a clean sheet here at home. "We're going to try and do something practically impossible next week", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "Tomorrow we'll turn our attention to what is an important game on Saturday". In Carvajal's absence, manager Zinedine Zidane will nearly certainly lean on 27-year-old versatile Spanish defender Nacho, who's stepped in a right back more than a few times this season.
The Spanish National High Court has confirmed that Neymar , his parents, the Barcelona president and his predecessor will all stand trial on allegations of fraud and corruption. Neymar is not the first Barcelona player to get into trouble with the Spanish authorities. The two clubs, Barcelona and Brazil's Santos , were also ordered to stand trial.
The Ducks want to get out of rabid pro-Oilers environment in Edmonton during the break in the series. The guys on the ice did a terrific job, not only battling for the puck, but creating a screen, creating a scramble. "That's what we've got to do from the start". It wasn't a bad game by us. The puck goes to Ryan Ellis at the left center point and Ryan Ellis takes a low shot that goes through traffic and into the net.

Mladenovic beat former top-ranked Sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. That trend continued as she took the first set easily against her unseeded opponent and when Sharapova broke right at the start of the second, a comfortable victory and a place in the final seemed an inevitability.
The speculations make sense because teams like the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans, New York Giants, and Detroit Lions are said to be trying to move up the draft to ensure that they get their target prospects. Evans (6'0/199) spent his junior and senior seasons in College Station after transferring from community college, starting both years and tallying six tackles for loss with five interceptions.

The organisation has its presidential election on May 6, and the 27-year tenure of long-serving AOC president John Coates is under serious threat for the first time. Tancred has denied all allegations made against him, with De Jong now also alleging an incident involving Coates himself. In a subsequent email, which was also sent to senior managers, he wrote: [The woman] is a solicitor, hardly a junior member of staff.
No Oriole poking his nose out of his dugout hole did anything other than mill around the infield. Barnes threw at Machado in apparent retaliation for Machado spiking Dustin Pedroia in the calf on Friday night. "I think we've all been around Pedey long enough to know that there's going to be games where he doesn't feel physically 100 per cent, but he's played a high number of them", Farrell said.
The reporting officer said he tried to follow up with the alleged victim at the hospital but she "just kept saying she wanted to go home and that her dignity was stripped from her in a manner of minutes".

Slaven Bilic's side have a patched-up defence, and are unlikely to be able to field New Zealand worldwide centre-back Winston Reid, and Ronald Koeman's men will hope to extend a record that has seen them lose just once in their last 17 matches against this weekend's opposition.
Until then the veteran striker had struggled to make much of an impression in the second leg of the semi-final against a determined and well-organised Belgian side. United's victory may have come at a cost for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But Nick Viergever quickly levelled on aggregate before Amin Younes hit a last-minute goal for the Dutch who finished the game with 10 men after Joel Veltman had been red-carded in the 80th minute.
However, the two London sides will put Premier League affairs to one side on Saturday evening when they do battle in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

The Liverpool manager has called for the Anfield crowd to be at its most vociferous and wants a similar approach from his players.

Ottawa defenceman Cody Ceci was still marvelling about captain Erik Karlsson's "saucer pass" to Mike Hoffman for Monday's first goal. Boston's Tuuka Rask and Ottawa's Craig Anderson have been disappointing in net. "We were allowed to play in the second and third (periods), we were a better team", Pastrnak said. The Bruins had just 10 shots through two periods.
Chicago are the first No. 8 seed to take a 2-0 lead in a first-round series - and even better, they did it on the road. "We don't win a lot of these games without "Do" out there, " All-Star Jimmy Butler said of Rondo. "As I told him, 'Way to run your team.' He did an incredible job with that". "I could hear Rondo, 'Yeah, they gave up". "You get three or four days of prep on a team, lock into their gameplan".
If Buffalo fails to match, the Pats will have two new running backs in Gillislee and Rex Burkhead and likely won't be bringing back LeGarrette Blount or signing Adrian Peterson. "The thing is, with us, we're all close enough that we don't have to tell anybody we want them back", McCourty said .

The. With Bottas splitting the two former Red Bull teammates, the Finn played down the threat from Ricciardo as he feels there is more performance to come from Mercedes and Ferrari on Saturday.

After winning last weekend's Chinese Grand Prix, where Vettel finished second, Hamilton could be seen driving up alongside the German's auto and giving him ...
This was the first time Jackson addressed reporters since September 23, and he had plenty to cover after the Knicks went 31-51 - the team's third straight season of at least 50 losses.
