How would the NHL respond to such a matchup?

If things remain the same in the second half of the 2017-18 NHL season—which is asking a lot, we know—we could be considering a Stanley Cup Final between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Vegas Golden Knights.

Before Porter had back surgery, he’d hinted to local media that he wasn’t a sure thing to go one and done. But if he were to stay, he either really loves college or is getting terrible advice.

While Porter comes with an estimable injury risk, he’s still tracking as a top five selection, probably top seven at worst barring serious medical red flags. With that noted, putting himself through another year of college hoops, re-risking injury and forgoing a year of earning potential at minimum makes next to no business sense. We’d all have loved to see him play college ball, but it’s a pipe dream at this point.

No one suggested the Sounders were better off without Dempsey last fall.

They managed. But when you’re that competitive, that driven, the joy in seeing your teammates succeed is always going to be tempered by the disappointment that you weren’t there to help—that you didn’t play your part and may never again have the chance to do so. Now he’s got that chance.

Dempsey has an eye on returning to the Sounders next season. He’s been negotiating with the club. But finals aren’t guaranteed, and with the U.S. national team facing a barren stretch and his international career likely at or near its end, Saturday’s game very well could be last big one he plays.

“I’ve just been lucky to get in opportunities to play in big games,” he said in a recent interview posted by the Sounders. “A big thing for me, losing my sister at a young age, that was real tough and [it helps you] not take things for granted and to work and and try to make the most of everything. When you’ve got the opportunity, you have to make it happen or maybe you don’t ever get [another] chance.

“We’ve done some good things here,” he continued. “We won a Supporters’ Shield. We’ve won an Open Cup. I wasn’t able to be a part of the MLS Cup, but in a small way, I was, in terms of playing half the season. But hopefully there’s more to be written.”

Aaron Rodgers condemns Thomas Davis’ hit on Davante Adams: ‘He’s a repeat offender’

Adams, who required medical attention on the field after the hit before he was helped off, later was ruled out with a concussion. When asked about Adams’ condition, Rodgers said he had not spoken to the wide receiver, but said, “I’m obviously concerned when he’s not out there.”

“I’ll never understand it,” Adams wrote. “Game is already dangerous enough and we got Pro Bowl players out here head hunting and saying they ‘didn’t mean to harm me’ … Somebody please explain to me what I wasnt trying to hurt him means when we nowhere near the play and u lead with ya head and ear hole a defenseless player …

“Look it’s football but no room for s— like that. We supposed to be in this together n look out for one another not mess with a mans livelihood and hand out unnecessary concussions. We all got mouths to feed what if I did that to him and his kids cant eat … Not the type to rant but when u go through this s— twice in a year it takes a lil toll on u so excuse me.”

I understand your frustration and I do apologize for the hit! In no way was I trying to hurt you. My first instinct was turn and make a block. In all sincerity I do apologize. I truly respect you as a player and I made a mistake!

the Kansas City defense can be lethal, where they can get exposed as they did by the likes of the Jets and Raiders. This won’t be one of those weeks, though … not by the Titans.

Credit the Tennessee defense for paving the way to the playoffs, especially in the finale over the Jaguars that broke their late three-game losing streak. Marcus Mariota regressed throughout the second half of the season, the two-headed rushing attack did not pick up where it left off last year, and DeMarco Murray’s status for this game (knee) is up in the air.

Robert Thomas, Sam Steel, Cale Makar, Alex Formenton, Michael McLeod and Drake Batherson also scored and Carter Hart made 18 saves for Canada, which was coming off a 4-3 shootout loss to the Americans on Friday in an outdoor game at the Buffalo Bills’ New Era Field.

Miller’s assist extended his points streak to five games. …

A career-long backup until then, Hoyer had played well to start that season. The following year, the Browns drafted Johnny Manziel; Hoyer held him off until December, when they lost two straight after reaching 7-4 in his comeback season. Hoyer is now on his fourth team since then, including Houston, where he hit his low point when he threw four interceptions in a shutout playoff loss to the Chiefs in the 2015 season.

“I don’t have anything to say about any of the appeal or anything about that issue, today,” Jones said via the team’s website. “But certainly I’ll be visiting with you guys about it in the future. Right now, today, is just not the time for me to talk about it.”

Marcus Mariota suffered a knee injury on the second drive of the game of the Tennessee Titans’ 12-7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The injury limited his mobility but he was able to finish the game.

It was another rough note in a rocky third season for Mariota. After the game, Mariota said he was fine and did not have a visible limp or wrapping on his knee.

Mariota finished the day 16-of-31 for 159 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. He has a career-high 14 interceptions this season.ny_rangers_043

He has a variety of weapons in receivers Nacarius Fant and Lucky Jackson and tight end Deon Yelder.

“We’re going into this game looking at it as a postseason opportunity,” Western Kentucky first-year coach Mike Sanford told reporters. “(It’s) a true one-game season. It’s the postseason.”

The Hilltoppers are led by quarterback Mike White. The 6-4, 225-pound senior threw for 3,826 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

Notre Dame (offensive linemen Mike McGlinchey and Quenton Nelson), Ohio State (center Billy Price and cornerback Denzel Ward), Iowa (linebacker Josey Jewell and cornerback Josh Jackson) and Texas (safety DeShon Elliott and punter Michael Dickson) each have two players on the first team.

Clemson had the most players selected to all three teams with six. Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, linebacker Dorian O’Daniel and offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt made the second team. Defensive end Austin Bryant and guard Tyrone Crowder were third-team picks.

In Dorsey’s introductory press conference Friday, owner Jimmy Haslam made it clear that Dorsey’s primary focus in his new role will be finding a quarterback to lead the team.

“Let me say it this way: The Cleveland Browns are not going to be successful until we get a quarterback,” Haslam said, per “And we obviously have DeShone and two other quarterbacks on the roster. We’re going to look at free agency and the draft. As it was mentioned earlier, we have a substantial amount of capital. We’re going to do whatever it takes to find the quarterback we need to be successful.”

The Browns have started nine quarterbacks over the past four years, but the franchise has not found a leader they can depend on to turn around the team. Cleveland’s current quarterbacks – DeShone Kizer (21), Kevin Hogan (25) and Cody Kessler (24) – are some of the youngest in the NFL, and they have all started for the Browns over the past two seasons. canadiens_1243_c436228869f32e75-140x140

Bills’ Zay Jones appears to levitate after play, Internet goes crazy

Until Sunday, Zay Jones lived a relatively normal existence as a rookie wide receiver with the Bills, best known for setting the NCAA single-season and career reception records while at East Carolina.

But that all changed after one play in Sunday’s Bills-Chiefs game, as Jones will forevermore be known as “The Man Who Levitated.” On a second-quarter play, Jones fell to the ground just out of the end zone trying to make a catch.

Once again, Ngakoue had helped to force the Browns into punting on fourth down. Third-down sacks and pressures are always big time plays, but especially in a game that was within one score almost all the way down to the wire.

Derrick Brooks, an appeals officer appointed by both the NFL and NFLPA, was the one who reduced Iloka’s punishment.

Iloka’s agent, Ron Slavin, released a statement saying thank you to Brooks but reiterated that they felt Iloka did nothing wrong.

“While we still believe George did nothing wrong on the play and the helmet-to-helmet contact was a result of Antonio Brown’s lowering his head as he braced for contact, we felt and argued that a suspension was particularly egregious.

“We thank Derrick for acknowledging our concerns and making the proper decision.”

Hornacek played seldom-used shooting guard Ron Baker to bother Kent Bazemore and Marco Bellineli. He went to a small lineup early in the fourth quarter to counter the Hawks’ center-free starting five as New York built a seven-point lead before the starters returned. And, later, Hornacek decided to foul with the Hawks down three in the final seconds instead of giving them a chance to tie the game — a decision that helped the Knicks walk off the floor with a 111-107 win.canadiens_036_37aa10b69f80e836-140x140

Depleted Spurs beat Suns for 8th win in 9 games

Spurs: Dejounte Murray tied his career high with 14 rebounds. … Brandon Paul and Forbes each got his second start of the season, Rudy Gay his fourth. … Gasol missed his first game of the season after starting the first 26. … San Antonio had an 18-10 advantage in offensive rebounds.

OK, well Mahomes has an excellent arm. It doesn’t surprise me that comes off as unbelievable in practice. However, Mahomes is taking a majority of these reps with the scout team. On the scout team, you just look at a card and run that play. Often as offensive linemen, we’d get in trouble for running our techniques for a play when the defense wants it done differently. You just do what the defense wants. Mahomes is free from reading coverages and free from consequence of mistakes.

“You never want to lose anybody like that,” Heyward said. “We have to compete and keep playing for Ryan.”

Fifteen Steelers players also wore customized Shazier cleats. Those players were Vince Williams, Sean Davis, Stephon Tuitt, Cam Heyward, Arthur Moats, Tyson Alualu, Mike Hilton, T.J. Watt, Javon Hargrave, William Gay, Bud Dupree, Robert Golden, Roosevelt Nix, Anthony Chickillo and Antonio Brown.

“You’re going to go through some ups and downs throughout a season, as a team and individually,” Barberio said. “The key is not to get too high with the highs and too low with the lows. That’s the way hockey goes and I’m just happy to contribute a bit.”

Barberio put the Avalanche ahead to stay 6:17 into the third. His slap shot off the rush hit Pittsburgh forward Riley Sheahan in front and got past goaltender Tristan Jarry.

“That was a huge win that we really needed, especially in our division,” Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau said. “We weren’t very good in the first period, but we came back and played the way we need to play in the second and third.”

Vincent Trocheck also scored for the Panthers, while Henrik Zetterberg scored for the Wings, who are 0-5 in overtime.

“We had a lot of chances throughout the whole game,” Crawford said. “The third was our best period. It was another good win for us at home, something to build off of and keep going with this.”

Ball didn’t seem to mind.

“That’s what the team is for,” he said. “JC came in and he was cooking tonight.”

Brandon Ingram added 18 points and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 15 for the Lakers, who have won two straight after losing five in a row.

“It doesn’t matter who comes in, who finishes the game — we support each other and throughout the game everyone made huge contributions,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “At the end, that group had it rolling. So I was planning on throwing `Zo and Brook (Lopez) back in the game but because of the way the momentum was going, we stuck with the group that was out there and they got the job done for us.”
