    Quote of the Day
    “In all honesty, Jon’s got final say, if it ever comes to that, and I’ve got zero problems with that. Now, having said that, I think we’re going to come to a consensus, and I like a little yelling, a little screaming, a little fighting for what players you believe in. But at the end of the day, I guarantee you, Jon Gruden and I are going to know what a Raider looks like and smells like. I don’t think we’re going to have any issues.”
    Raiders’ new GM Mike Mayock


    Wednesday’s quiz
    In the movie Draft Day, where Kevin Costner plays GM of the Cleveland Browns, who plays the Browns’ head coach?

    Tuesday’s quiz

    Rams haven’t won a playoff game since January 8, 2005 when they beat Seattle 27-20; Marc Bulger was the Rams’ quarterback that day.


    Monday’s quiz
    Troy Aikman played at Oklahoma before he transferred to UCLA.


    **************************


    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…….


    13) Green Bay Packers hired Titans’ OC Matt LaFleur as their new head coach. In 2017, LaFleur served as OC under Sean McVay in Los Angeles in a season where the Rams finished the year ranked as the NFL’s 10th best offense.


    LaFleur also spent three seasons on the same coaching staff with McVay in Washington (2011-13) with LaFleur serving as QB coach and McVay serving as tight ends coach.


    12) Atlanta Falcons fortified their coaching staff by adding two former head coaches as assistants; Dirk Koetter as OC, Mike Mularkey as tight ends’ coach. Koetter is an upgrade at OC over Steve Sarkisian.


    11) Since 1994, Kansas City Chiefs are 0-6 in home playoff games; last time they won a home playoff game, 27-24 over the Steelers in ‘94, their QB was Joe Montana.


    This year’s Chiefs are first-ever NFL team to score 26+ points in every game of a season.


    10) From Josh Dubow of AP: Last time Nick Saban lost a game by more than 14 points was December 17, 2006, when Buffalo beat Saban’s Miami Dolphins 21-0 behind three TD passes from JP Losman.


    Lot of water under the bridge since then.


    9) Arizona Cardinals parted ways wth coach Bruce Arians after LY, then drafted a young QB and hired a new coach who is defense-oriented, who they then fired after one year.


    Meanwhile, Arians is about to resurface as the coach in Tampa Bay, while young QB Rosen didn’t have a great year. I’m not sure what the Cardinals were thinking when they cut Arians loose, but hiring Kliff Kingsbury at least makes some sense for them- it should be good for Rosen’s career.


    8) On the flip side of that argument is this: Texas Tech fired Kingsbury Nov 26; 43 days later, he’s an NFL head coach? Thats a career move that hasn’t happened very often, if ever.


    7) In each of last ten years, Miami Dolphins’ record has ranged from 6-10 to 10-6; they’re only team in NFL that can say that. Dolphins have made the playoffs twice in last 17 years. Last time Miami won or lost more than 10 games in a season was their 11-5 season in 2008.


    6) Underrated coach: Kenny Atkinson of the Brooklyn Nets, who has led his team to a 20-22 record this season. Nets last finished over .500 five years ago; they won less than 30 games the last three years, so Atkinson is doing good work with a roster full of guys lot of other teams didn’t want. Nets right now hold the 8th and final playoff spot in the East.


    5) With Titans’ OC Matt LaFleur being hired as head coach in Green Bay, that means Marcus Mariota will have his 4th OC in five years with Tennessee next season. Not good.


    Meanwhile, Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins tweeted that he “didn’t want to go back to the crib.” Haskins is from New Jersey; he posted a pic of him in a Giants’ uniform, but then the tweet was quickly deleted. His agent probably had a heart attack when he saw the tweet.


    4) If you’re betting on the Sony Open golf tournament this weekend, keep in mind that the last five Sony Open champs also played in Kapalua the week before.


    3) Mike McKenna became the 7th different goalie to start for the Philadelphia Flyers this year, tying the 1989-90 Quebec Nordiques for the most goalies ever used in one season.


    2) In the last 27 years, Washington Redskins are only NFL team that hasn’t had at least one season when they went 11-5 or better; even the Browns and Lions had one. New England has had 16 of them.


    1) Dueling trends: Patriots covered 12 of their last 15 home games; Chargers are 9-0 SU outside of Los Angeles this season.

    Thursday’s 6-pack


    Early over/under baseball totals for 2019:
    — Houston Astros 97.5
    — Bronx Bombers 96.5
    — Boston Red Sox 95.5
    — Los Angeles Dodgers 95
    — Cleveland Indians 91.5
    — Chicago Cubs 89


    Quote of the Day
    “I saw some of the best leaders I’ve ever been around check out, because it was ridiculous. Our assistant head coach [Joe Vitt] was suspended for six weeks. We had a new D-coordinator in [Steve] Spagnuolo. His scheme didn’t fit our personnel at all, so we were the worst defense in NFL history. We tried to hold it together . . . but there was a point in the season where it’s just, like, everybody for themselves.”
    Eagles’ safety Malcolm Jenkins, on the 2012 Saints


    Thursday’s quiz
    In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, where did the Saints play most of their home games?


    Wednesday’s quiz
    In the movie Draft Day, where Kevin Costner plays GM of the Cleveland Browns, Denis Leary plays the Browns’ head coach.


    Tuesday’s quiz
    Rams haven’t won a playoff game since January 8, 2005 when they beat Seattle 27-20; Marc Bulger was the Rams’ quarterback that day.


    ***********************


    Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud…….


    13) USC’s AD Lynn Swann is taking grief in Los Angeles over the Kliff Kingsbury fiasco, where the Trojans hired Kingsbury as their new OC, then 34 days later, watched Kingsbury run off to be head coach of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.


    Had Swann waited until the eight NFL head coach openings were filled, he would’ve been spared the embarrassment of hiring a guy who didn’t want to be there. Now he has to hire another OC, and it is less than a month until Signing Day for recruits. Not good.


    12) Kliff Kingsbury said couple of months ago that he would take Kyler Murray with the first pick in the draft, if he could. Well……..now he can, since Arizona has the first pick in the draft.


    Would another team trade for Josh Rosen and open the door for that to happen?


    11) Denver Broncos hired Bears’ DC Vic Fangio as their new head coach, beating out Steelers’ OL coach Mike Munchak- those two coaches were born about five miles apart near Scranton, PA.


    10) Jets signed Adam Gase as coach; Gase went 23-26 as the Dolphins’ coach, losing his only playoff game 30-12 at Pittsburgh in 2016. Gase went 5-1 against the Jets with Miami.


    Everyone except Denver is anxious to sign offense-geared head coaches.


    9) Tennessee Vols hired OC Jim Chaney away from Georgia; he will be Tennessee’s 4th OC the last four years- he was make $950,000 a year in Athens, so safe to say he got a hefty raise to move to Knoxville.


    8) Cleveland Browns hired OC Freddie Kitchens as its new HC, based on his development of rookie QB Baker Mayfield. Most assistant coaches were fired, including DC Gregg Williams, who was interim coach when the Browns won five of their last seven games.


    This is similar reasoning that Tampa Bay used a few years ago when Buccaneers fired HC Lovie Smith and promoted Dirk Koetter to HC, figuring that Koetter was instrumental in the development of QB Jameis Winston— how did that turn out for them?


    Kitchens is the 6th former Alabama football player to become an NFL head coach, last one being Mike Riley with the Chargers.


    7) Usually, sign-up for the Westgate SuperBook’s NFL handicapping contest starts in July; this year, they’re hoping to start signing people up on March 1. Over 3,000 people were in this year’s contest; the champ won over $1.4M.


    6) New Mexico Lobos basketball player Corey Manigault is the nephew of playground legend Earl (the Goat) Manigault, a famous New York City ballplayer from a long time ago whose career was derailed by off-court issues.


    5) Trivia you get from the movies: When Jesse Owens won the gold medal in the 200-meter sprint in the 1936 Olympics. he won by :00.4 seconds over a guy named Mack Robinson.


    You may have heard of Mack’s younger brother, Jackie Robinson. Pretty good baseball player.


    4) Saben Lee, who plays basketball for Vanderbilt, is the son of former Florida State/NFL running back Amp Lee, who played nine years in the NFL for four teams.


    Amp Lee caught the last TD pass Joe Montana threw for the 49ers; later on, he won a Super Bowl ring with the 1999 Rams.


    3) Milwaukee Brewers signed C Yasmani Grandal to a one-year contract for $18.25M.


    2) Tuesday, four armed guards entered the New Orleans Saints’ locker room, with Coach Sean Payton wheeling the Lombardi Trophy in, on top of $225k in cash.


    Payton asked the team: “Y’all want this??? Win 3 F’n games.”


    The locker room erupted. $225k is each player’s Super Bowl bonus.


    1) Last time Cowboys/Rams met in the playoffs was in January of ’86, when the Dieter Brock-led Rams shut Dallas out 20-0 in Anaheim. That was 20 days before current Rams’ coach Sean McVay was born.


    Dallas’ OC Scott Linehan used to be the Rams’ head coach.
    Rams’ DC Wade Phillips used to be the Cowboys’ head coach.

    In the Crease - Week 16
    Joe Williams





    Vegas, Baby
    If you want to make some bread, slam the Golden Knights and the 'under'. Vegas has won seven in a row, with the 'under' hitting at a solid 5-1-1 clip during the span. Both of those streaks will be put to the test in a key Western Conference showdown when the San Jose Sharks invade the Strip. The Sharks enter on their own four-game winning streak, and they have picked up victories in five of their past six outings. They're also 5-1 in the past six inside the Western Conference. The Golden Knights have won an impressive 50 of their past 70 home games, however, and that includes a 5-1 mark in their past six home meetings against San Jose.


    Fade the Leafs?
    The Toronto Maple Leafs were able to bury the Vancouver Canucks by a 5-0 count on Saturday night at ScotiaBank Arena, but they was a rare victory lately. They're just 1-3-0 across the past four, and right now they're working with goaltender Michael Hutchinson, an import from the Florida Panthers, with the top two netminders in the organization, Frederik Andersen and Garret Sparks, nursing injuries. Toronto goaltenders have allowed at least four goals in three of the past four, and for some reason the offense has had a power outage lately, too, when it matters most. The Leafs have been blanked in two of the past four outings.


    Looking Ahead


    Thursday, Jan. 10


    Nashville-Columbus:
    It's battle between the Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets in the 'Heart of it all', with both hockey clubs playing well lately. The Preds skate in with victories in five of the past six overall, and they're 4-1 in their past five. Nashville has also been victorious in 16 of their past 21 against the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets are no slouch, going 7-3 over the past 10 while cashing in four straight against Central Division foes. And C-Bus has the luxury of a day or rest, while the Preds just played last night. Of course, Smashville is 11-4 in their past 15 in the second end of a back-to-back.


    In Nashville-Columbus, total bettors might want to seriously consider the 'under'. The under is 5-0 in the past five in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation (three games in four games) for the Predators, while going 5-1 in the past six when they're playing in the second end of a back-to-back situation. For The Jackets, the under is 7-1 in the past eight at home, 9-4-1 in the past 14 overall and 5-0 in the past five against winning teams. The under is also 9-1-1 in their past 11 tries against Western Conference clubs.

    Washington-Boston:
    The Capitals have won six consecutive trips to Boston, while winning 22 of their past 28 meetings against the Bruins. The 'under' is also 21-6 in the past 27 meetings in Beantown. However, the B's enter on a heater, winning five in a row and 38 of their past 51 at home. Of course, the Caps are 28-11 in the past 39 on the road, and they're 19-7 in the past 26 overall.

    Winnipeg-Minnesota:
    The Jets head to the Twin Cities with victories in eight of the past 10 games on the road, and they're 14-5 across their past 19 contests overall. They'll be facing a Wild team which has come up short in four consecutive home games while registering just one win in the past seven against Western Conference foes. However, the home team has cashed in seven of the past nine in this series, with the Jets just 2-5 in the past seven trips to St. Paul.


    Friday, Jan. 11


    Buffalo-Carolina:
    The Sabres travel to battle the Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh. Buffalo will be rested, and they're 6-2 in the past eight working on two or more days of rest. However, they're also just 3-10 in the past 13 tries against Eastern Conference squads. Carolina will be playing their third game in four days, and they're just 5-15 in the past 20 in the third game of a 3-in-4. The Sabres have won just two of their past 10 in Raleigh, however, and they have dropped six straight in this series. Perhaps they'll snap that as Jeff Skinner returns to North Carolina for the first time since his offseason trade. The 'over' is also 8-1-1 in the past 10 meetings in Raleigh, and 9-3-4 in the past 16 overall in this series.

    Pittsburgh-Anaheim:
    The Penguins have gobbled up two points in five consecutive road games, and they're 9-1 in the past 10 games overall. They've been picking off the dregs of the league, winning eight of the past nine against teams with a losing overall record. The Pens have been hot against the West, too, cashing in 10 of the past 12 against Pacific Division teams and 20-6 in the past 26 against Western Conference foes. The 'over' is 3-1-2 in the past six battles in this series.


    Saturday, Jan. 12


    Boston-Toronto:
    The Maple Leafs will be looking to return the favor of a 6-3 beatdown in Beantown on Dec. 8 in the most recent meeting in this series. Toronto won the last battle in Ontario on Nov. 26, but in each of those games they had Andersen in the crease. When each of those games took place, Hutchinson was still a member of the Florida Panthers organization. In the only game this season against the B's, Sparks took it on the chin 5-1 back on Nov. 10 in Boston.

    St. Louis-Dallas:
    The studs for the Stars, particularly Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, might not have cared for the profanity-laced tirade from CEO Jim Lites, but it appears to have lit a fire under the dynamic duo and the team as a whole. Since returning from the holiday break the Stars are an impressive 5-1-1 in the past seven heading into play on Thursday. They'll host the Blues on Saturday night, a team they just pushed aside 3-1 in the Lou on Tuesday night. That was the first meeting of the season, and these teams will see each other again Feb. 21 in Dallas and March 2 in St. Louis.

    Arizona-Edmonton:
    The Oilers offense has been rather erratic lately, prompting bench boss Ken Hitchcock to shake up his lines. And boy aren't Edmonton fans pleased to see superstar Connor McDavid skating alongside the likes of Zack Kassian and Jujhar Khaira. Anyway, the previous lines worked Jan. 2 in the desert against the Coyotes, as the Oilers came away with a 3-1 win behind Mikko Koskinen. The Oil won both meetings last season in Edmonton in overtime, and they have won four straight at home vs. Arizona dating back to Nov. 27, 2016.

    John Tavares scores 300, Maple Leafs beat Devils
    January 10, 2019
    By The Associated Press



    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) John Tavares scored twice and hit the 300-goal mark in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.


    Defenseman Ron Hainsey also scored in Toronto's three-goal first period and third-string goaltender Michael Hutchinson made 27 saves. Mitch Marner added an empty-net goal.


    Blake Coleman and Brian Boyle scored in a 26-second span for the Devils late in the second period to get New Jersey within a goal. Keith Kinkaid made 39 saves, including two on Tavares that prevented his hat trick and 30th goal of the season.


    Acquired from Florida on Dec. 29, Hutchinson made his fourth straight start with Frederik Anderson and Garret Sparks out with injuries.


    CAPITALS 4, BRUINS 2


    BOSTON (AP) - Nicklas Backstrom scored in the third period after missing a game with an illness, helping Washington beat Boston for the 14th straight time.


    Backstrom ripped a left-circle wrister past Jaroslav Halak for the go-ahead goal with 14:14 remaining.


    Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-leading 31st and 32nd goals, and also had the highlight hit of the game when he sent Zdeno Chara - the NHL's tallest player ever at 6-foot-9 - flipping head over heels into the Capitals' bench on a shove late in the first period.


    Braden Holtby made 39 saves, improving to 12-0-0 against Boston during the Capitals' streak, and 16-2 in his career against the Bruins. Jakub Vrana also had a goal for Washington.


    Ryan Donato and David Krejci scored for Boston.


    LIGHTNING 3, HURRICANES 1


    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Brayden Point had a tiebreaking power-play goal in the third period and added a late empty-netter in NHL-leading Tampa Bay's comeback victory over Carolina.


    After Point scored from in-close with 3:15 left, he got his 28th goal into the empty net during the final minute. Ondrej Palat also scored, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 26 saves. Point also had an assist. The Lightning, 17-1-1 over the last 19 games, tied a team mark with their ninth consecutive home win.


    Justin Williams picked up his 300th NHL goal for the Hurricanes, who had a five-game winning streak end. Petr Mzarek 27 stopped shots.


    ISLANDERS 4, RANGERS 3


    NEW YORK (AP) - Josh Bailey scored with 1:26 remaining to lift the New York Islanders over the Rangers 4-3 at Madison Square Garden.


    Cal Clutterbuck found Bailey cutting to the back post, and he beat Henrik Lundqvist to help the Islanders improve to 13-2-0 in the last 15 meetings between the Big Apple rivals.


    Matt Barzal had a goal and two assists, and Robin Lehner made 27 saves. Jordan Eberle and Anders Lee also scored for the Islanders, and Johnny Boychuk had two assists.


    Ryan Strome, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jesper Fast scored for the Rangers. They dropped their fifth straight to open 2019.


    OILERS 4, PANTHERS 3, SO

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Connor McDavid had two goals - including the tying score with 8 seconds left in regulation - and also scored in the shootout, helping Edmonton beat Florida.


    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored in the shootout, and Darnell Nurse had the other goal in regulation for the Oilers, They have won three of their last five on the heels of a six-game losing streak.


    Frank Vatrano, Denis Malgin and Henrik Borgstrom scored for the Panthers. They have lost four in a row.

    BLUE JACKETS 4, PREDATORS 3, OT



    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Artemi Panarin scored his second goal of the night 1:22 into overtime to lift Columbus past Nashville.


    Panarin won it on a 4-on-3 power play. Boone Jenner also had two goals, and Zach Werenski had a pair of assists for the Blue Jackets in the 600th career coaching win for John Tortorella.


    Joonas Korpisalo had 32 saves for Columbus. He got the start because Sergei Bobrovsky was scratched because of an unspecified ''incident,'' according to the team, with no clear idea of when the Vezina Trophy-winner might be back. Mattias Ekholm had a goal and an assist, and Nick Bonino and Viktor Arvidsson also scored in the third period for the Predators.


    WILD 3, JETS 2


    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Jason Zucker scored twice, giving Minnesota's lagging power play a lift with his first goal and getting one later just after leaving the penalty box, and the Wild beat Winnipeg.


    Jordan Greenway also scored and Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves. The Wild have won all three games against the Jets so far this season by a combined 10-5 score after losing to their Central Division rival in five games in the first round of the playoffs last spring.


    Brandon Tanev and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets.


    BLUES 4, CANADIENS 1


    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Oskar Sundqvist had a goal and an assist and rookie Jordan Binnington made 28 saves to lead St. Louis past Montreal.


    Robert Thomas, Jay Bouwmeester and Sammy Blais also scored for St. Louis. Binnington improved to 2-0 after becoming the 35th goalie in NHL history to record a shutout in his first career start on Monday night at Philadelphia. Brendan Gallagher scored for the Canadiens.


    FLYERS 2, STARS 1


    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Carter Hart stopped 37 shots and Philadelphia beat Dallas to end an eight-game losing streak.

    Quote of the Day
    “We’ll look at all the options. We’re not going to release him, that’s not on the table. But I will say all other options are on the table. Whether the situation can be reconciled and [we] have him back on the team next year, we’re a long way from thinking that can happen. We’re not closing the door on anything at this point.”
    Steelers’ president Art Rooney II, talking about Antonio Brown


    Friday’s quiz
    Where did Kawhi Leonard play his college basketball?


    Thursday’s quiz
    In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Saints played most of their home games in the Alamodome in San Antonio.


    Wednesday’s quiz
    In the movie Draft Day, where Kevin Costner plays GM of the Cleveland Browns, Denis Leary plays the Browns’ head coach.


    *************************


    Friday’s List of 13: Basketball notes from this week……


    13) Marquette 106, Creighton 104 OT— Bluejays totally butchered game management at end of regulation; they had ball out of bounds with 0:00.8 left, up 3 points- they throw the ball the length of the court, but it goes out of bounds without being touched, then Marquette drains a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer to force OT.


    All they had to do was flip the ball to a Marquette player inside the arc and the game was over, but thats not what happened.


    Marquette’s Markus Howard scored 53 points, most ever in a Big East game; he nailed 10-14 treys, 13-15 on foul line. Horrific home loss for Creighton.


    12) Virginia Tech 52, Georgia Tech 49— Look at this score, then you remember that Markus Howard scored 53 by himself at Creighton. Different styles of play, for sure.


    11) UCLA 87, Oregon 84 OT— Staggering collapse by the Ducks, who led 76-68 with 0:44 left in regulation- it was 72-59 with 2:30 left. Bruins are 3-0 under interim coach Murry Bartow.


    10) Villanova 76, St John’s 71— Red Storm led by 13 early, by 5 with 3:48 left, but faded badly down stretch and lost for second time in four Big East games. Villanova ended the game on a decisive 14-4 run.


    Sign of times; there were 67 3-pointers taken in this game, 48 2-pointers, 30 foul shots. Red Storm basically played only six guys (a 7th guy played 5:00). 67 possessions; slow tempo, lot of jump shots late in the shot clock.


    9) Hofstra 93, William & Mary 90, 3OT—Visiting Pride led by 10 at the half, survived in triple OT— four Hofstra kids played 42:00+, with Wright-Foreman playing whole 55:00. Four guys on W&M played 44:00.


    Bad beat of the night: Northeastern (-9) won/covered 81-70 at Elon, but in OT. If you have the underdog +9 and the game goes overtime, you’re supposed to win.


    8) ESPN has obviously told his game analysts to hype up Zion Williamson at every chance, the way they did with Trey Young LY and Ben Simmons the year he was at LSU.


    Williamson doesn’t need the hype, he is really good, but ESPN has this new thing where they seem to choose one player a year and they hype him up so much that you wind up rooting against him.


    7) Warriors 122, Knicks 95— Klay Thompson scored 43 points for the Warriors Tuesday, on 29 shots. On the 29 touches where he shot, Thompson dribbled a total of four times. Four.


    6) Pitt 89, Louisville 86 OT— Panthers end a 23-game ACC regular season losing streak. Jeff Capel has Pitt heading in the right direction, and he’s done it quickly.


    5) Eastern Michigan 84, Ball State 82, 2OT— Ball’s Trey Moses had 16 points, 10 assists, but he was 4-15 on the foul line in a game the Cardinals led by 3 in the last minute of regulation. Tough way to lose; Ball State was 15-30 on foul line in a 2-point loss.


    4) Ole Miss 82, Auburn 67— Rebels outscored Auburn 27-9 on foul line, never trailed in moving to 12-2 under new coach Kermit Davis, who built a mid-major power at Middle Tennessee the last few years.


    3) Quinnipiac 89, Monmouth 83, 2OT— Bobcats led 63-49 with 1:36 to play, blew the lead, as Monmouth somehow scored 34 points in last 11:36 of this game, but still lost. Quinnipiac was -8 (22-14) in turnovers, but still got the win.


    2) Kansas State 71, West Virginia 69— Wildcats trailed 20-3 early, by 21 with 17:46 left, but rallied to hand the Mountaineers their third straight Big X loss. West Virginia is 0-3 in its conference for first time since an 0-6 start in the ’02 Big East.


    1) There were 32 games in the Las Vegas rotation Wednesday night; in 8 of the 32 games, the team that lost had a lead of 10+ points at some point in the game; five of those teams led by 14+ points at one point. Lot of runs/droughts in college games these days.

    Guentzel's trick rallies Pens past Ducks
    January 12, 2019
    By The Associated Press



    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Jake Guentzel scored three times, Phil Kessel got the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied from an early three-goal deficit for a 7-4 victory over the Ducks on Friday night, sending Anaheim to its 10th consecutive loss.
    Pearson scored the tying goal midway through the third and added another with 3:25 left for the Penguins, who roared back for their 10th win in 11 games with a four-goal third period.


    Evgeni Malkin had a goal and three assists, while Guentzel scored two goals in the second period and added an empty-netter to wrap up his second hat trick of the season in a wild opener to Pittsburgh's five-game West Coast trip.


    Jakob Silfverberg scored a go-ahead, short-handed goal late in the second period, but the Ducks are 0-7-3 since winning on Dec. 17 at Pittsburgh, going 0-7-3.


    John Gibson made 29 saves against his hometown team, but was shredded in the third period along with Anaheim's struggling defense.


    Matt Murray stopped 21 shots for Pittsburgh.


    Nick Ritchie, Ryan Getzlaf and Daniel Sprong scored in the first period, but the Ducks couldn't maintain their start.


    HURRICANES 4, SABRES 3


    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Sebastian Aho scored two goals off the skates of Buffalo defensemen, and Carolina held on to spoil Jeff Skinner's return to Raleigh.


    Micheal Ferland had a deflected goal and two assists, Justin Williams also scored and Teuvo Teravainen added two assists. The Hurricanes scored three goals in 7:27 of the second period and have won five of six for the first time this season to move within five points of a playoff spot.


    Skinner scored his 30th goal in his first game against Carolina since he was traded to the Sabres. Jason Pominville also scored and Kyle Okposo pulled Buffalo within one with a deflected goal of his own with 3:12 remaining.


    The Sabres have lost five of seven, going 2-4-1 in that stretch. They had Jack Eichel back in the lineup after the center with a team-best 49 points missed three games with an upper-body injury.


    Curtis McElhinney made 30 saves for Carolina. Carter Hutton stopped 26 shots for the Sabres but gave up three fluky goals - including two to Aho.


    FLAMES 4, PANTHERS 3


    CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Michael Frolik had a goal and two assists to lead streaking Calgary to a comeback victory over Florida.


    Frolik has eight points (four goals, four assists) in seven games since coach Bill Peters made the veteran a healthy scratch on Dec. 29.


    Mark Giordano, Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk also scored for the Flames (29-13-4). The Western Conference leaders have won four in a row to improve to 7-1-1 in their last nine.


    Johnny Gaudreau had an assist to extend his point streak to seven games (seven goals, nine assists).


    Mike Hoffman, Jonathan Huberdeau and Evgenii Dadonov scored for Florida. The struggling Panthers are winless in their last five, including an 0-2-1 start to a five-game road trip.


    David Rittich made 24 saves to improve to 17-4-3 for the Flames.


    Roberto Luongo, tested 23 times, dropped to 8-10-1 for the Panthers.

    JETS 4, RED WINGS 2



    WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Kyle Connor had a goal and two assists as Winnipeg defeated Detroit.


    Bryan Little scored the game-winning goal for his 500th career point. Brandon Tanev and Blake Wheeler also scored for the Jets, and Wheeler added an assist.


    Laurent Brossoit made his 10th start of the season and stopped 33 shots for Winnipeg.


    Luke Glendening had a short-handed goal and defenseman Dennis Cholowski scored on the power play for Detroit, which lost its third straight. Jonathan Bernier made 23 saves for the struggling Red Wings, who are 1-7-2 in their last 10 games.

    Saturday’s 6-pack


    More early over/under baseball totals for 2019:


    — Miami Dolphins want Patriots’ DC Brian Flores to be their new head coach.


    — Scottie Pippen Jr committed to play basketball at Vanderbilt next year. He is a 6-foot tall PG.


    — Astros’ 3B Alex Bregman had elbow surgery, should be ready for Opening Day.


    — Mets signed Jacob deGrom to a 1-year, $17M contract.


    — Dodgers acquired Russell Martin from Toronto for two minor leaguers.


    — If Chargers host AFC title game, NFL is looking to move the game to LA Coliseum, because of, well, you know……..money. Chargers’ home stadium holds only 26,000 people.


    Quote of the Day
    “Most quarterbacks are overrated. People think they’re great if they win even if there are a lot of other factors.”
    An anonymous NFL defensive player


    Saturday’s quiz
    Who did the Knicks play the last time they played in the NBA Finals?


    Friday’s quiz
    Kawhi Leonard played his college basketball at San Diego State.


    Thursday’s quiz
    In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Saints played most of their home games in the Alamodome in San Antonio.


    ******************************


    Saturday’s Den: Notes on Las Vegas hotels where I’ve stayed……..


    Places where I’ve stayed the most:


    — Westgate— Best sportsbook in Las Vegas, by far; on NFL Sundays they open the theater to watch all the games, with food/betting right there. Sid’s Cafe is solid dining option and they have fancier eating options also. Rooms are pretty good but not great, but this is a good place.


    International Bar in front of the casino is very good, and the snack bar has superior cherry danish.


    — SouthPoint— Rooms are bigger, pretty nice. Outstanding 24-hour cafe. Also a very good sportsbook, with a hot dog stand right near it during the day and a good bar, snack bar nearby. There is a radio studio in middle of casino, where Brent Musburger has a daily radio show. Bowling alley, movie theater upstairs; away from the Strip, but a very good place.


    — Elara— Behind Planet Hollywood, Elara used to be my go-to place until Hilton bought it and doubled the room prices. Attached to Miracle Mile shops, so in summer can do just about anything you like as far as eating/shopping and never go outside. Excellent place, but out of my price range now, and their rates don’t go down Christmas week.


    Places I like to stay Christmas week, when room rates are lower:


    — Vdara— No casino, but a short walk from the Aria. Great rooms, good bar by the front door, decent Market Cafe with pretty good light food (open till midnight). You can walk to Bellagio without going outside.


    — Aria— Really good sportsbook, and I changed my mind about the pizza place right near there, it is solid pizza. There is a Starbucks upstairs near the buffet. Problem is, Aria is way too nice for me. You play video poker at the bar, has to be at least $1.25 a hand, which can be expensive if you go on an extended cold streak. Just like Vdara, great rooms; their gift shop is much better, with a wider assortment of junk food available.


    — Mandalay Bay— Great room, with good layout for desk and an odd-shaped couch to relax on. Hot tub in the bathroom never hurts. Pretty good snack bar right near the sportsbook, but the book could use bigger TV screens.


    — Luxor— Room I stayed in was so spacious you could’ve played floor hockey in kitchen area; there was an excellent 24-hour deli in the casino, and the bar area was……how can I say this, full of friendly people. Sportsbook was small but good enough.


    Places I’ve only stayed once or twice…….


    — Planet Hollywood— Smallish rooms, good sportsbook, excellent coffee shops (Planet Dailies); the Dueces Wild game at the machines right near Planet Dailies can be generous. Easy access to Miracle Mile shops, which are good to walk around.


    — Golden Nugget— My only downtown visit; room was kind of average, but rest of hotel was top-flight, with 24-hour coffee shop that is excellent. Pool is tremendous, sports book is small but must be great in summer to watch baseball.


    Downtown Las Vegas has to be seen to be believed; lot of unique sights, just stay on the beaten path after dark. Enjoyed my ten days here.


    — Bally’s— If you go in spring or fall, Bally’s has a great pool area, trust me on this. I didn’t like the layout of their sportsbook that much, but lot of food areas close by, and it is across the street from Battista’s, one of my favorite restaurants. Didn’t spend much time in the casino while I was there, since the sportsbook is off by itself.


    — Mirage— I am almost 60 years old, but was on the young side of guests there— think it was my 4th day there before I was in an elevator without someone else using a cane or a walker.


    I am told the pool there is excellent, but didn’t see it myself; I can attest to fact that The Mirage has great food options— Carnegie Deli (HUGE sandwiches, Dr Brown’s soda), a really good hamburger place and a California Pizza Kitchen. Sportsbook is also pretty good.


    — MGM— Sportsbook area is small but good; very big hotel. My walk from the elevator to my room was pretty long. Food options are solid; my room was smallish, and about 25% of the TV channels were Asian channels. Very close to the adidas outlet store, which cost me more $$$ than video poker. Nice place, just not my thing that much. Not sure the West Wing bar is there anymore, but I liked the West Wing bar.


    — SLS— The old Sahara has the smallest rooms ever; there was a mirror on the ceiling in my room, and mirrors on shower door and bathroom door, to make room look bigger. Last thing I want to see while I’m laying in bed is…….me.


    Room did have a good seating area at foot of the bed; I enjoyed my stay there, but there is only a counter to place sports bets, no real sportsbook. Hamburger place was pretty good, but I’m still waiting to win one hand of video poker— got completely crushed there, to point where I’m not sure those machines ever pay out.


    — Sun Coast— Quietest casino ever; located up in Summerlin, pretty close to where Snoop Dawg lived in the reality show he was in a few years ago. Most of time there were more security guys than customers in Sun Coast. Was told they had an incident just before my stay, which is why the security was enhanced.


    I remember there was group of Toronto Maple Leaf fans there gloating about a playoff win over the Bruins, only Toronto blew the lead late in game and those people wound up drowning their sorrows while I played video poker.


    This place looks just like South Point, just no 24-hour coffee shop; there is a good bar near the sportsbook, and the movie theater serves Orville Redenbacher popcorn, which is important if you’re watching games in the sportsbook.


    — Excalibur— Been long time since I stayed there, am assuming it is lot different now than way back then. If you like watching guys dressed up in medieval outfits juggling or playing a bugle, this is your place. Great spot on the Strip, close to MGM, Luxor and T-Mobile Arena.


    — Rio— Stayed there one night in July 2010, but their Internet wouldn’t support posting my website stuff so I left, which is how I wound up staying at the Elara. This was during the World Series of Poker, which was great fun to walk thru for 20-30 minutes, until I realized that I didn’t come 2,300 miles to watch other people play cards.


    — Stratosphere— Never stayed there, but have to recommend the Italian restaurant downstairs in the casino, Fellini’s; really good place. Old school Italian restaurant.
