  • Top Shelf: Josefson delivers on ‘Devil’s Night’

    Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) – In a fitting twist of fate, the New Jersey Devils finally ended their NHL record run of shootout losses on Oct. 30, or as some folks call it, “Devil’s Night.” One night before Halloween, Jacob Josefson ended the Devils’ string of 18 consecutive shootout losses, beating Winnipeg’s Ondrej Pavelec with a head fake for New Jersey’s first SO win since March 10, 2013, also against the Jets. The Devils always tried to downplay the shootout skid, but it was obvious a weight was lifted off their shoulders on Thursday. Besides, New Jersey knows first-hand how important…

  • Red Wings put Weiss on IR

    Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – Forward Stephen Weiss will remain out of the Detroit Red Wings’ lineup for at least another week after suffering a groin injury during a minor league conditioning assignment. Weiss exited Wednesday’s contest for Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League after two periods and was subsequently placed on injured reserve by the Red Wings on Friday. The 31-year-old played in just 26 games last season, the first of a five-year, $24.5 million contract Weiss signed with Detroit during the summer of 2013, before undergoing hernia surgery in December. Weiss has dressed for only one game for…

  • Sabres send Reinhart back to junior

    Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – The Buffalo Sabres have returned forward Sam Reinhart, the second overall pick of this year’s NHL Entry Draft, to his junior team at Friday’s deadline to do so. The current Collective Bargaining Agreement allows NHL teams nine games to evaluate players still eligible to play in the junior leagues without it counting as a year accrued on their entry-level contracts. Reinhart appeared in his ninth game in the Sabres’ overtime loss to Boston on Thursday. Buffalo’s decision to send Reinhart back to Kootenay of the Western Hockey League was not unexpected, as the 18-year-old had averaged…

  • Ducks hope to regain scoring touch in Dallas

    (SportsNetwork.com) – The Anaheim Ducks will try to get their struggling offense on track Friday night as they visit a Dallas Stars club that has given up its fair share of goals this season. The Ducks have lost two of three since winning seven in a row, held to just two goals over that span. They shut out the Chicago Blackhawks 1-0 on Tuesday, but were then blanked 2-0 by the St. Louis Blues two nights later. Jake Allen made 24 saves for the Blues, while John Gibson came up with 27 saves in the loss. Gibson was coming off…

Jameis Winston picks up first save for Florida State baseball

Mar 15, 2012

He wasn’t playing for the national championship this time, but Jameis Winston came through in another pressure situation for the Florida State Seminoles. Winston, who won the the Heisman Trophy on the gridiron this past season, also plays baseball for the Seminoles. On Saturay, coach Mike Martin brought him in to pitch in the eighth inning vs. Niagara with two on, no one outs and the go-ahead run at the plate, the Tallahassee Democrat reports . Jameis Winston (AP Photo) “I wanted to see how he would react in a game of this magnitude,” Martin said, tongue firmly in cheek….

2014 Sochi Olympics: Canada needs Drew Doughty OT goal to beat Finland

Feb 14, 2011

Doughty broke a scoreless tie midway through the first period and scored the game-winning goal with 2:28 left in overtime, giving the Canadians a 2-1 win over Finland on Sunday. “I don’t know what’s going on,” said Doughty, who has four goals in three Olympic games after scoring just eight times in 59 NHL games this season. “I don’t score like this in L.A. at all. A lot of it is just my teammates. They’re doing a great job getting me the puck.” Canada closed the preliminary round of the tournament with a win that would’ve been more helpful had…

UConn’s Shabazz Napier shows All-Americans can come in all sizes

Feb 14, 2011

The midseason stuff is for amusement purposes only, though. Teams’ schedules vary so widely it can be a challenge to compile a definitive list. When we compose the real Sporting News All-America team at the end of the regular season, we have a full complement of performances and data upon which to draw. No striking out then. After what we’ve witnessed over the ensuing month, it is fair to say we shall not repeat our misstep regarding Napier. He has been so routinely terrific he is a much greater threat to make the first team than to be excluded from…
