Jones scores twice, surging Blue Jackets beat Canadiens 5-2

Drouin scored on a breakaway — spurned by a blocked shot — at 15:46 of the second with a backhander to pull the Canadiens within two.

Cole capped the scoring with a floating wrister with 2:19 left in the game.

“We just feel good about ourselves and the way we’re playing hockey,” Jenner said. “You can see tonight if we play the way we can, we can kind of dominate teams.”

Capitals fans who have watched Ovechkin shine as the most productive goal scorer of the past decade-plus gave him a standing ovation for almost a minute after he reached the mark. Chants of “Ovi! Ovi!” continued as he waved from the bench in the moments after and during a video montage at the next timeout.

“I’d like to see our guys do a much better job when it comes to fronting pucks,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said. “Lindy had a bit of a tough night, and your best penalty killer can also be your goaltender.”

Early in the second period, not long after Zach Werenski saved a goal by swiping away the puck before it could cross the goal line, Jenner stuffed home his own rebound, the entire play nicely set up by Wennberg.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will not play Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans.

“He’s got to be cleared by his medical staff that he’s seeing. And until he gets cleared, we can’t make a decision on when he’s coming back,” Popovich said. “So once he gets cleared, then he and I can sit down and talk, and see what we think about an appropriate time to come back. But that clearance has to be obtained first.”

Popovich, who said the team will continue to err on the side of caution when it comes to Leonard’s injury, said he has seen the forward work out, but Leonard “needs a little bit more work.”

He joined the National Society of Black Engineers and threw his weight Cheap Bike Jerseys behind, a non-profit that advocates for computer coding in schools. In 2007, Bosh launched his own company, Max Deal Technologies, and rescued 800 domain names of his fellow NBA players Cheap College Basketball Jerseys from a cyber squatter. He had an affinity for numbers, but his love for the game superseded it and sucked up all of his attention.

Forte had some decent production when healthy last season, but he was further hampered by knee injuries and turned 32 in December.

He’s too expensive for the Jets to retain with limited return on investment.

Wyoming’s Josh Allen or USC’s Sam Darnold could end up being a big slider, or Louisville’s Lamar Jackson could become a big riser. Because of that unpredictability, Maccagnan, Bowles and Bates would need to settle on several would-be rookie solutions knowing their top option might not be an option at all.

The long play of drafting the game’s most important position makes more sense for the Jets to get out of the cycle of overspending on veterans. They have to be confident enough in Cousins for them to make the move, because he also could become another expensive mistake that would handcuff them in their relentless pursuit of the Patriots.

The Broncos issued a statement to the Post saying they are monitoring the situation:

We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.

The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, the 25-year-old Gotsis started 13 games last season, compiling 41 tackles and two sacks.

The Broncos selected Gotsis in the second round (No. 63 overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Assignments on bunt plays and shifts are among the tasks that Braun is trying to master.

“I definitely don’t feel comfortable at all,” he said. “I’m doing the best I can with it. Guys have to make sacrifices. I think ultimately if we want to get to where we want to get as a team, based on the roster we’ve put together, it obviously helps make us a better team if I’m able to play multiple positions.”

Braun came up as a third baseman with the Brewers and played Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys there in 2007 before moving Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike to the outfield in 2008. He has primarily played left field since then, except for a two-year stint in right that ended in 2015.

Korpisalo stops 37 shots as Columbus beats Vegas 4-1

Columbus backup goalie Joonas Korpisalo had lost three straight starts since his last victory on Jan. 18. He found out Tuesday morning he’d be playing in place of a sick Sergei Bobrovsky against the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights, and he turned in a gem.

The 23-year-old Finn stopped 37 shots, and the Blue Jackets beat Vegas 4-1 and hung onto the second wild card in the Eastern Conference.

“Listen, no one is under the impression we are going to wipe out disagreement between contestants in a highly competitive environment,” McCutchen said (via the Washington Post). “What we are hoping we can do is move forward in a way in which we find a common language in which we can disagree, which is based on some core principles for what the NBA stands for: integrity, respect, sportsmanship, and in which we can put the focus on the players and the game in a way it is about the game. That’s what we are all drawn to.”

“You’ve got to be out there and coaches trust me with that,” said Point, who has 10 game-winning goals on the season, two shy of the franchise record. “It’s a privilege to play overtime. We’re just trying to work hard, and guys are finding me. It’s not only myself, but our team’s been playing well in overtime.”

Tampa Bay reached overtime for the sixth consecutive game, one shy of tying the NHL record set by Edmonton in 2004 and Toronto in 2009, according Elias Sports Bureau. The Lightning have a 5-0-1 record in that span.

Yanni Gourde finished with two goals and three points for the Lightning, who improved to 7-0-1 in the past eight games.

Nick Bjugstad recorded his first career hat trick and Aleksander Barkov had three assists. The Panthers had their six-game winning streak end but have recorded points in seven consecutive games. Florida trails Columbus by two points for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with three games in hand.

“Since I’ve been here that’s the best game I’ve seen Nick play,” Florida coach Basketball Jerseys Custom Bob Boughner said. “We needed a performance like that and down the stretch here we are Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys going to need different guys step up . and tonight he was that guy.”
