The Devils are one win away from a playoff berth thanks to Taylor Hall and his 93 points. Those 93 points are 42 points ahead of Nico Hischier, who ranks second on the Devils with 51 points. That gap is the largest among the top two scorers on an NHL team this season. Talk about carrying a team.
Reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton is already a persona non grata in the Bronx as Yankees fans reacted to the slugger’s five-strikeout day against the Rays with a chorus of boos. Stanton, a four-time All-Star who led the league in homers and R.B.I. last season, was New York’s high-profile signing of the offseason. But in true Yankees fashion, the new arrival took less than one home game for the fans to turn on him like the listless, ungrateful a-holes they can often be.
The much talked about Odell Beckham isn’t yet as much of a headache for the Giants as he is for all the other teams in the NFL who have to cover him. But he is getting there, as fast as he can go, which means as fast as a streak of light. Problem is, will they be able to get him on the field this season, or will the headaches continue.
In a game loaded with playoff and seeding implications, Predators-Panthers had an ending that should terrify everyone that a rough goaltender interference call could fuck over any team at any time. Isn’t hockey great?!
If David Price, who backed Chris Sale’s six shutout innings on Opening Day with seven shutout innings of his own last Friday night, is going to pitch like this again, Red Sox vs. Yankees really is going to be big fun this season.
Matt Harvey allowed just one hit over five scoreless innings, leading the Mets to a 2-0 victory over the Phillies at Citi Field. If that was the real Matt Harvey, the Mets are going to be better than anyone ever imagined.
