“To be honest ... I think that was an opportunity where maybe he wasn’t his sharpest, and we scored four on him – we need to win that game. He’s probably not going to let four in again,” Brind'Amour said.
Caufield put up five points in his first 10 NHL games and has four important assists in the playoffs, but the 5-foot-7 dynamo showing he could hang in the pros was about more than producing offensively. Former NHL scout Dave Starman said Caufield is more confident than ever handling the puck in his own zone, and the commitment to becoming an all-around player hasn't gone unnoticed by his coaching staff.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, last season's champs, advanced past the Carolina Hurricanes with a win on Tuesday night. That coupled with the Golden Knights' win pushed Tampa Bay to the pole position in the Stanley Cup odds, with Vegas just behind.
During a power play, a team can press a goalie who isn’t 100-percent. If this affects Rask’s lateral movement, there’s no better time for the Islanders to exploit the occasional cross-seam pass. Maybe Rask will be just a smidge less crisp in fighting to see around screens?Edmonton Oilers Custom Logo Face Coverings
Karlsson snapped a one-timer between Grubauer’s skate and the post for his third goal and seventh point in the series to give Vegas a 2-1 lead. From there the teams exchanged goals until the game was tied at 3-all before the Golden Knights took charge in the final period to close the game out.Minnesota Wild Custom Logo Face Coverings
Some of the reasons Dillard, 25, gave for the move were relatable: He'd open his phone and start browsing through videos and whatnot, and the next thing he knew an hour had flown by and he had nothing productive to show for it. He wanted to block out the "general negativity in the world" that social media can bring. He learned of the dangers and behavior manipulation associated with social media, brought to the fore by documentaries such as "The Social Dilemma" on Netflix.Cincinnati Bengals Face masks

"There are athletes who social media actually fuels them, right? They actually enjoy the engagement," Newman said.

As for Gray, the fifth-rounder is acclimating himself well to Kansas City’s exotic attack. The former Duke star checks in at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, and alongside star Travis Kelce, could finally be a quality second option in a two-tight end set. The Chiefs have been searching for Kelce’s running mate for years, and the buzz early is Gray could be the answer.
"Once they are able to go through a full season, they have an understanding of the landscape, the expectation, what is expected of them, and then you get to a full offseason," McCarthy said. "I always thought that second-year players, you get to see that jump from their initial start line, and that's something I have paid close attention to. If you don't see it by the third year, it's probably an uphill climb for that particular player. To answer your question, I see CeeDee making that jump. You can see he is very comfortable.

Again, less than a week ago, many hockey observers were wondering if Colorado could be stopped.

Why keep DeBrusk in the lineup when he hasn't scored a goal since Game 2 of the first round? Sure, he's been cold of late, but taking a guy who scored 62 goals in his first three pro seasons off the ice and keeping in a fourth-liner such as Wagner or Kuraly doesn't solve the Bruins' problems.

They could trade him before the trade deadline in early November, but it seems unlikely the Texans would get as much value than if they waited until the end of the season. If Texans general manager Nick Caserio does decide to trade Watson, he'd rather know what pick he's trading for, instead of making a deal in the middle of the season and hoping for the trade partner to lose. It's the same reason some felt if the Texans were going to trade Watson before this season, they would do it before the start of the draft.New Orleans Saints Face masks

This isn't the first time James has shelved No. 23 for No. 6.

To date, only two teams have done so: the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, who have Jordan's 23 hanging on the wall of their arena (Pat Riley retired it in Jordan's honor for his contributions to the game), which helped force James' original jersey number switch.Milwaukee Bucks face coverings

Furkan Korkmaz, who scored a combined seven points in the first two games of the series, scored 11 points in the opening period while making two 3s. He added another 3 in the fourth for 14 points.
Brooklyn also executed the textbook defensive plan on Giannis Antetokounmpo, backing off to entice him to take outside shots and baiting him into charges when he came into the lane. The Nets aren't getting the charges, but the contact seems to be making Antetokounmpo more cautious; he is just 2-of-10 at the foul line in the series.
