Shattenkirk’s No. 1 reason for signing with the Rangers?

Putting the fact of playing at home aside, it came down to which team is ready to win, that was the biggest priority on my list, explained Shattenkirk. When you are with the New York Rangers, they’re in the business to win every year. They’re not a team looking to go through a rebuild. It seems like every year they are making the moves necessary to make their team a championship team. I think we are right on the cusp of making something big happen here.

The Rangers won 48 games a year ago and finished with 102 points, good for fourth place in the ultra-competitive Metropolitan Division, fifth in the Eastern Conference. It was the third straight season the Rangers earned at least 100 points; and since 2011-12 New York appeared in three conference finals, won a President’s Trophy and played in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.

If you can bring it home in New York, it’s something you can’t replicate anywhere else, the New York-born and bred Shattenkirk said of winning the Cup.

A pinpoint shot from the blue line by Predators defenseman P.K. Subban beat Penguins goalie Matt Murray 7:13 into the first period. On the surface, it appeared Nashville was off to an early lead. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan felt otherwise and challenged whether Filip Forsberg was offside as the Predators gained the attacking zone.

Upon further video review, officials ruled that was in fact the case.

As Forsberg corralled the pass, his left foot crossed into the Penguins zone while the puck remained on the blue line, negating the goal by a matter of inches, and seconds. Under strict interpretation of offside, it’s the correct call, but that won’t stop the debate over the coach’s challenge to spill out on the NHL’s biggest stage.

In facing his greatest challenge, LeBron James learns the limits of his powers

CLEVELAND There was a metaphor for the Cavaliers situation here in the NBA Finals, and it came in the first quarter of Game 3.

It was almost exactly at the midway point of the first quarter, and LeBron James was caught out of position after a Warriors offensive rebound. James scurried out toward the 3-point line to catch up with his defensive assignment just as Cavs big man Tristan Thompson was crossing the lane. Thompson wasn’t looking and didn’t see his hefty shoulder smack straight into James jaw.

They used that to keep Golden State out of striking distance. The Warriors cut the lead to 37-27 before Draymond Green was called for a technical foul (or so we thought), and that’s when Love put the finishing touches on that first-quarter run with a free throw and one more 3-pointer with 1:02 remaining.
Love finished with a team-high 14 points in a dazzling 49-point quarter. Cleveland shot 14 of 22 from the free-throw line and prompted 12 first-quarter fouls from the Warriors.

After that first quarter, they were only up, what, four points? From the second to the fourth, they only beat us by four points the last three quarters, Durant said. So that first quarter they came out and hit us with that amazing punch; 49 points in the first quarter is way too much.

That first quarter had an outside-in effect. From there, Cleveland set a physical tone, which became one of the leading topics of conversation in the postgame.
