    WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin scored his 20th goal of the season and the 750th of his NHL career to help the Washington Capitals beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 Saturday night and snap a two-game skid. Ovechkin became the second-fastest player to reach the 750-goal mark, doing so in his 1,222nd regular-season game. Wayne Gretzky, whose record of 894 Ovechkin is chasing, got to 750 in 1,001 games. Ovechkin joined Marcel Dionne, Jaromir Jagr and Mats Sundin as the only players to score 20 or more goals in each of his first 17 seasons in the NHL. After ending a two-game goal drought, Ovechkin now trails Jagr by 16 goals for third on the career list. Rookie Aliaksei Protas scored his second career goal by following his own rebound in the first. Garnet Hathaway sealed it with an empty-netter with 1:27 remaining in regulation. Eric Robinson scored the only goal of the night for the the Blue Jackets, who lost their fourth in a row in regulation. They have been outscored 18-6 during this losing streak. LIGHTNING 3, BRUINS...
    South Webster 67, Valley 41 SOUTH WEBSTER — The South Webster Lady Jeeps wasted little time in bouncing back on Thursday night. That’s because, following their season-opening and Southern Ohio Conference Division II loss against Wheelersburg on Monday night, the Lady Jeeps jumped all over the visiting Valley Indians —and captured a 67-41 SOC II triumph. While South Webster is now 1-1 both ways, the Lady Indians fell to 1-3 —and 1-2 in the SOC II. The Lady Jeeps jolted Valley early and often — opening up leads of 21-9 after the first quarter, 38-21 at halftime, and a doubled-up 56-28 advantage following three frames. South Webster held a 28-11 advantage in total field goals, including a 9-3 edge in three-pointers made. The Lady Jeeps only attempted three free throws as Skylar Zimmerman made both of hers — while Valley attempted 25 foul shots and meshed 18. After opening the season with 30 points against Wheelersburg, SWHS standout senior scoring machine Bri Claxon went off for 28 against the Lady Indians —on 13 total field goals. She also attempted the...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andrew Mangiapane and Milan Lucic scored on the power play as the Calgary Flames won their fourth straight road game, 3-2 over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Matthew Tkachuk had a goal, Jacob Markstrom made 40 saves and the Flames improved to an NHL-leading 10-2-2 on the road. “Sometimes you need your special teams to produce, and the power play was able to get two and the penalty kill did their job again here tonight,” Lucic said. Alex Edler got his 100th career goal and Alex Iafallo also scored, but the Kings lost for the seventh time in eight games. Cal Petersen made 29 saves. “I think it always comes down to little things, the little details in a game, little mistakes here and there,” Edler said. “Whether it’s getting the puck behind them, turning the puck over here and there. If you do that too many times, eventually you’re going to get punched.” Tkachuk made it 3-1 at 4:54 of the second, with the Flames taking advantage of a turnover in the...
    SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Sam Reinhart scored the winning power-play goal with 14.4 seconds left, capping a furious comeback for the Florida Panthers to beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 on Tuesday night. Trailing 4-1, the Panthers scored four goals on a season-high 26 shots in the third period to snap a two-game skid. Eetu Luostarinen and Ryan Lomberg each had a goal and an assist. Sam Bennett and Joe Thornton also scored goals for the Panthers, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 23 shots. Nick Jensen had a goal and an assist for the Capitals. Lars Eller, Beck Malenstyn and Connor McMichael also scored goals. Ilya Samsonov made 45 saves. NHL teams had lost 303 consecutive games when trailing by three or more goals entering the third. The last team to pull off such a comeback was, ironically, the Capitals — who on Jan. 18, 2020, trailed the New York Islanders 4-1 entering the third and went on to win 6-4. STARS 4, HURRICANES 1 DALLAS (AP) — Roope Hintz scored his first career hat trick on an empty...
    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jordan Binnington was looking for a place to hide. The St. Louis goalie gave up three goals on the first nine shots he faced Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, including an embarrassing miscue on a shot that bounced off the glass and went into the net under his feet. But he stayed the course despite the early struggles, stopping the next 24 shots — plus two in a shootout — as the Blues rallied for a 4-3 win against the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions. “That’s part of the life being a goaltender,” Binnington said. “It’s not always going to go your way. I heard it hit the stanchion and I kind of didn’t see it again. It’s the first time that’s happened to me.” Ryan O’Reilly scored the lone goal in a shootout and St. Louis erased an early three-goal deficit to beat the Lightning for the fifth straight time. “They got some goals early that put us on our heels,” O’Reilly said. “We settled and took a deep breath, all of us....

    FULHAM are making a big push for Angers No 10 Angelo Fulgini and could meet the £18million price. The Cottagers know they will be losing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to either Napoli or even Crystal Palace at the end of the season. 1Angers midfielder Angelo Fulgini is being chased by Championship side FulhamCredit: Getty Eagles boss Patrick Vieira is a huge fan of the Cameroon international, who has been starring during his loan spell for the Napes outfit.

    CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Kyle Connor scored twice, including the game-winner with five minutes left, as the Winnipeg Jets snapped a five-game skid with a 4-2 comeback victory over the Calgary Flames. Set up on a cross-ice pass from Blake Wheeler, Connor sent a one-timer into the top corner inside the near post before Jacob Markstrom could get across. Connor’s 14 goals ties him for fifth in the NHL. Paul Stastny and Andrew Copp also scored for Winnipeg, which salvaged the final game of its three-game road trip.

But Calgary prevented the Jets...

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Garrett Urban made all five of his field goal attempts and his 25-yarder with two seconds left sent Grambling to a 29-26 win over Southern on Saturday in the 48th annual Bayou Classic.

    Diogo Jota celebrated his early goal by sitting on the Anfield turf, crossing his legs and pretending to play on a gaming console. Liverpool simply toyed with Southampton in the English Premier League on Saturday. In another masterful display by the best attack in the league, Liverpool swept to a 4-0 win. It has scored at least two goals in its last 17 games in all competitions. Needless to say, Jürgen Klopp’s ruthless team is comfortably the top scorer in the Premier League with 39 — no other side is within eight — and the latest victory pulled Liverpool to within a point of leader Chelsea, which doesn’t play until Sunday against Manchester United. Jota led Liverpool with two goals — the first coming inside two minutes, with his celebration perhaps a nod to his off-field penchant for gaming. Indeed, he won a FIFA 20 tournament played by Premier League players while soccer was suspended last year following the coronavirus outbreak. Thiago Alcantara’s deflected strike and Virgil van Dijk’s volley completed the scoring against a Southampton team whose bold approach...
    SARINA WIEGMAN hopes Ellen White will ‘have fun’ when she makes her landmark 100th senior England appearance.   But the Lionesses boss warned helping the striker break Kelly Smith's all-time scoring record will not be the team’s priority against Austria.  2Ellen White is in line to make her 100th senior appearance for England when they play AustriaCredit: Reuters England face their sternest World Cup qualifier test against their rivals at the Stadium of Light with both sides unbeaten in Group D after four games. And their upcoming clashes in Sunderland and Doncaster could see White surpass Smith’s tally of 46 goals with the Manchester City ace, 32, just three short of equalling this figure. On whether the Lionesses will be looking to help White break the record, Wiegman, 52, said: “It doesn't matter who scores, we just have to score goals as a team.  “We’ll be really happy when she breaks the record, but it’s not our main point to have Ellen score. We (as a team) have to score the goals. “Ellen is focusing on the game and it is...
    After being forced to sell two of its top players because of financial constraints, Inter Milan now faces the prospect of losing another on a free transfer. Inter Milan winger Ivan Perišić is driving the Nerazzurri forward in Europe and in Serie A, where it is launching a stern defense of its league title despite the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi, as well as coach Antonio Conte. But the 32-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the season and he seems to already have made up his mind about leaving, reportedly saying he feels the need for a change. “Ivan is doing extraordinary things. The club knows my thoughts on him renewing his contract,” said Simone Inzaghi, who took over from Conte in the offseason. Perišić was already a key player under Conte but has become vital under Inzaghi this season, featuring in 16 of Inter’s 18 matches and weighing in with three goals and two assists. His latest goal helped Inter beat Napoli 3-2, inflicting a first loss onto Luciano Spalletti’s team and reducing the Serie...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Jack Roslovic had two goals and an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Buffalo Sabres 7-4 on Monday night.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Barrett Hayton scored twice and Scott Wedgewood made 33 saves as the Arizona Coyotes downed the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Tuesday.

    GARETH SOUTHGATE can live with the yapping from his two Harrys. Stars Harry Kane and Harry Maguire telling him how much they want to play against San Marino will be music to the ears of a manager who prides himself on the Three Lions culture he has built. 4Gareth Southgate steps off the plane as the the squad land in ItalyCredit: Getty But what really gets Southgate annoyed is the sniping about a team that has cleared more obstacles than any England side of the past 50 years. Statistics can always be used to bolster a case, often by a manager seeking a way out of a hole. But Southgate is not in any sort of strife. So as the England boss, ready to put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him in the hotseat until Euro 2024, laid out his own demands ahead of the game where his side will surely clinch their spot in Qatar, there was an underlying message to any remaining critics. While it has taken until the last game of the...

    Stretched too thin: With staff exhausted, schools cancel class or return to remote learning 2 Iowa teens formally charged in death of Iowa teacher It’s considered one of the best football rivalries in the world today and with good reason: the U.S. men’s national team and Mexico simply don’t like each other as they do battle every year for regional supremacy. But critical World Cup qualifying points are also on the line on Friday. For many years Mexico was the undisputed leader of the CONCACAF region, but since the turn of the century the USA has made a legitimate case to unseat El Tri. Just this past summer, the USA beat Mexico in two finals — the Nations League and the CONCACAF Gold Cup — and now they get to try it again in a CONCACAF World Cup qualifier in Cincinnati, Ohio. The match means so much that the USA once again selected the state of Ohio as host in order to guarantee a home-field advantage. Mexico sits in first place (14 points) and the USA in second place...

    Glasgow, Scotland (CNN)The US and China surprised the COP26 climate summit on Wednesday when representatives of the countries announced an agreement to ramp up their climate ambitions, just days before the end of the conference in Glasgow. "There is more agreement between the US and China than divergence, making it an area of huge potential for cooperation," China climate envoy Xie Zhenhua said at a news conference. "The release of this joint statement shows again that cooperation is the only choice for both China and the United States. By working together our two countries can achieve many important things that are beneficial not only to our two countries but the world as a whole." US vs. China: How the worlds two biggest emitters stack up on climateXie did not commit China to the Global Methane Pledge, which has been spearheaded by the US and EU and obliges signatories to slash methane emissions by around a third.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Jeremy Swayman has started seven games in his young career on home ice. He’s won seven times … and he’s allowed just eight goals. That is a fairly decent start to a netminder’s career at home. The goaltender, now officially in his rookie season, backstopped the Bruins in a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. The win improved the Bruins to 6-4-0 on the season and helped alleviate some of the sting of Saturday’s 5-2 loss in Toronto. Swayman stopped 25 of 27 Ottawa shots, stopping three of four high danger shots and all three medium danger shots faced, per Natural Stat Trick. That included a stone-cold denial on a point-blank shot from Matthew Tkachuk in the third period, as well as five saves in the final 4:30 of regulation to secure the tight win. Though he tied a career high for goals allowed on home ice with two, neither was the result of bad goaltending. The first came after some pinballing of the puck in close, and the second was a harmless...
    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Mackenzie Blackwood made 34 saves and the New Jersey Devils beat the Panthers 7-3 Tuesday night, handing Florida a second-straight regulation loss after it went 11 games without one. Andreas Johnsson scored twice and defenseman P.K. Subban had the go-ahead goal as the Devils had their biggest offensive output of the season.

    Hopi at crossroads of maintaining language for elected posts Sununu announcement hands Democrats lifeline Over two months removed from choosing to represent the U.S. over Mexico, the forward, 18, finds himself at the center of a World Cup qualifier between the two. View the original article to see embedded media.If the U.S.-Mexico men’s soccer rivalry has ever had a face, it was almost certainly furious, anguished, sneering or smug. It probably was one of antagonism. For all the blending and bonds that exist between the two countries, those ties rarely were evident on the field.  On the lists of all-time goals and appearances for the U.S., for example, there’s only one player of Mexican descent in the top 20: Carlos Bocanegra. And the former captain wasn’t someone whose life story or career embodied all those complex cross-border connections, at least publicly. Playing for Mexico wasn’t really an option. Bocanegra didn’t master Spanish until adulthood. The U.S. certainly has featured multiple men with Mexican roots. It was Michael Orozco who scored the only goal in that friendly win at the...
    Pfizer asks for FDA authorization for booster for everyone 18 and up Pelosi, AOC tell COP26 America is back on climate Hey everyone, it's Chris Bengel here on a glorious Tuesday -- one we've all been waiting for. College basketball is finally back. College basketball season has always been one of my favorites times of the year. My childhood was filled up with memories of University of Maryland basketball and the friendly confines of Cole Field House. I will never forget the image of Juan Dixon tossing the basketball to the top of the Georgia Dome and hearing Terps legendary announcer Johnny Holliday say, "The kids have done it." College hoops has always been a sport that has been a lot of fun to watch and even more fun to bet on. Sure, you've got your marquee matchups featuring the Dukes, North Carolinas and Gonzagas of the world. But for me, there's nothing that beats sweating out a good spread bet of a mid-major school like Davidson or Drake. Hopefully we'll have more success than pain as the 2021-22...
    Ricardo Pepi sat down with his family to discuss his big decision: whether to play for the United States or for Mexico. “I was just bringing everything to the table to them,” he recalled. “I was talking about what it would be like walking out, playing in a game versus Mexico. We’ve talked about how special that would be and how motivating that would be for me.” He committed in August to the red, white and blue, the land of his upbringing, rather than El Tri, the team of his parents’ nation, and the 18-year-old striker became one of soccer’s most sought-after prospects when he scored three goals in his first two international appearances. Pepi figures to face Mexico for the first time in the crucible of World Cup qualifying, when the region’s top two teams play Friday night at Cincinnati’s new TQL Stadium. All 25 players on the U.S. roster practiced Tuesday at Mercy Health Training Center in Milford, Ohio. Pepi scored a go-ahead goal in September at Honduras in his international debut, then had both goals in last...

The Wild welcomed Parise back with a video tribute during the first period after he spent the previous nine seasons as a member of the Wild. He and Ryan Suter signed matching 13-year, $97 million contracts in free agency prior to the 2011-12 season but were both bought out by the team this past offseason, making them unrestricted free agents.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Nick Bjugstad scored the deciding goal in a shootout that came after the Minnesota Wild erased two-goal deficit in the final five minutes of regulation, eventually beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Saturday night. Bjugstad, who had 16 points in 45 games during parts of two seasons with Pittsburgh, beat Tristan Jarry with a wrist shot in the shootout. Kirill Kaprizov and Kevin Fiala also scored in the shootout for the Wild, who won for the third time in five games. The Wild pulled Cam Talbot and got a goal from Jared Spurgeon (his second of the game) with about 4:20 left in the third period. Ryan Hartman tied the game with 1.1 seconds to play in regulation after a net-mouth scramble. Kaprizov also scored in regulation and Talbot made 35 saves. Pittsburgh’s Kasperi Kapanen scored his first career hat trick in regulation, but he was stopped in the shootout.

    SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Panthers matched the best 11-game start in NHL history and denied the Carolina Hurricanes what would have been a league record-tying start of their own, with Anthony Duclair getting two goals and two assists in a 5-2 victory on Saturday night. Spencer Knight made 28 saves for Florida (10-0-1), which tied the 1994-95 Pittsburgh Penguins and 2006-07 Buffalo Sabres as the only NHL teams to reach 21 points after 11 games. Carolina (9-1-0) was bidding to join the 1993-94 Toronto Maple Leafs and those ’06-07 Sabres as the lone teams to start a season 10-0-0. The Hurricanes hadn’t trailed by more than two goals in any of their first nine games, but were down 4-0 in the first period against Florida and couldn’t pull off a comeback.

And while Ronaldo has typically struggled against Guardiola teams - winning just FOUR of 16 games against the Spanish chief - the City manager was full of praise for the Portuguese forward. Guardiola told Sky Sports: "Ronaldo will score goals all his life. "He will be 75 years old, maybe retired, but he would be at his own BBQ playing a game and he'll score goals.

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool eased into the Champions League knockout rounds Wednesday after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s assists cut through the Atlético Madrid defense in a 2-0 win at Anfield. Precision passes from Alexander-Arnold into the heart of the goalmouth set up Diogo Jota and Sadio Mané for simply taken goals in the first 21 minutes. Atlético looked beaten even before going down to 10 men in the 36th when defender Felipe was shown a straight red card for tripping Mané and his subsequent petulant reaction to the referee. Liverpool’s fourth straight win to open the group stage lifted the 2019 champion seven points clear of second-place Porto with two rounds remaining. Liverpool will be seeded as a group winner in the round of 16 draw on Dec. 13. The loss for Atlético, which was beaten 3-2 by Liverpool in Madrid two weeks ago, also helped last-place AC Milan, which got its first point in a 1-1 draw at home to Porto. Atlético hosts Milan, which can still finish runner-up in Group B, in three weeks’ time. Liverpool next welcomes...

    Plan Your Winter TV Schedules With This Guide to All the Premiere Dates The Most Fascinating Things You Never Knew You Could Invest In By Jan Levine, RotoWire Special to Yahoo Sports This week's article includes the new No. 2 pivotman in Boston, the Duke racking up goals, ADA succeeding with the Canes, Sid the Kid back, a much-hyped rookie sent to the minors and a veteran center turning back the clock. First Liners (Risers) Charlie Coyle, C, BOS The departure of David Krejci left a major hole at second-line center for the Bruins. Stepping in — at least initially — to try and fill the breach is Coyle. The early returns have been relatively solid, as Coyle has five points and 15 shots on goal in his first seven games, though the points have come in just three contests. If Coyle does not prove up to the task, Boston might explore the trade market or try either Erik Haula or Jack Studnicka in that spot. But for now, the position is Coyle's.
