In the first bracket of the Women’s College World Series, UCLA and Georgia have been eliminated. The second bracket saw losses from Oklahoma State and Arizona that caused them to be eliminated.
Today’s games will decide which two teams will compete in the championship finals beginning tomorrow.
Steady Start for Oklahoma and Florida State
On Sunday, Oklahoma faced James Madison and showed promise early on. Leading Oklahoma was 2nd baseman, Tiare Jennings. Jennings hit a home run in the top of the 1st inning, which set the tone for the rest of the game.
Jennings had four AB, as well as two runs, two hits and two RBIs. Jennings hit a .
Shortstop Sara Jubas led James Madison with four AB, one run, two hits and three RBIs. Jubas hit .408 in the game.

Alabama’s pitcher, Lexi Kilfoyl, struck out nine but walked with the bases loaded in the fifth inning. Alabama only had two hits the entire game and had only one runner reach second.
Another Matchup for the Semifinals
Tonight, Florida State will face Alabama again for game 14. Since the winner of game 10 (Florida State) defeated the winner of game six (Alabama), the teams are forced to play another game to conclude the semifinals. Likewise, Oklahoma and James Madison will meet again due to the winner of game nine (Oklahoma) defeating the winner of game five (James Madison). This game will begin at 4 p.m. on Monday, June 7 followed by FSU versus Alabama at 7 p.m.
The winners of these two games will play in the championship finals, which are best 2-out-of-3. The first game will begin on June 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Mt. Lebanon boys lacrosse featured on ESPN’s ‘Senior Night’ segment

The 2020 Mt. Lebanon boys lacrosse team features 13 senior players.
The Mt. Lebanon boys lacrosse team has yet to play an official game this spring but received recognition on national television Wednesday night.
ESPN’s SportsCenter featured the Blue Devils’ 13 seniors as part of Scott Van Pelt’s nightly “Senior Night” series that is recognizing senior high school and college athletes who have been kept off the field because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Shoutout @mtlebolax and #ManzosBoots for making an appearance on #SeniorNight tonight! pic.twitter.com/mWd02G1BCj

Mt. Lebanon’s portion of the segment highlighted “Manzo’s boots,” which are awarded to the team’s MVP after each game.
“It was great (to be featured),” said Mt. Lebanon coach Mike Ermer, whose team was 14-8 last season, finishing as WPIAL runner-up and a PIAA quarterfinalist. “I’d prefer to be handing the boots out in person, but it’s a consolation. It also gives the guys a little light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a pretty bleak time right now.”
There’s quite a story behind the boots, which belonged to longtime Mt. Lebanon youth lacrosse coach Mike Manzo.
Manzo was a partner in the Downtown law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney and legal counsel to the WPIAL. He died in his sleep May 30, 2011 at age 62.
According to Ermer, Manzo would leave work around 5:30 or 6 p. m. each day, stop home to see his wife and children, then head to the muddy lacrosse fields where he would coach the youth teams while wearing an old pair of duck boots.
Then, he would head home for dinner before going back to work at the office.
He was a man known for dedication to his family, his work and lacrosse.
While at a lacrosse coaching convention in Baltimore in 2014, the Mt. Lebanon coaches were learning about motivational tactics, using items like a sledgehammer or hard hat to instill the ideals of hard work to players.
That same day, they encountered longtime Cornell University coach Richie Moran, one of the most successful college lacrosse coaches in history. When they shared that they were from Mt. Lebanon, he immediately asked about Manzo.
He remembered Manzo from a game he coached against Princeton, where Manzo was a midfielder in the late 1960s.
Triggered by Moran’s recollection, Ermer and the other coaches thought Manzo’s story would be perfect motivation for the Blue Devils players.
Ever since, Mt. Lebanon players have been striving to replicate Manzo’s work ethic, dedication and passion each game.
“It means a lot to the program and the boys,” Ermer said.
Too many pics to choose from. So we will go with the very first #ManzosBoots winner Beanie Wells from 3/28/15. #Missinglacrosse pic.twitter.com/0nCGwy07vo

NYSportsJournalism.com – ESPN, NLL Sign ‘Landmark’ Media Rights Deal
NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service
October 26, 2021: Calling it an “unprecedented, landmark” deal, National Lacrosse League today unveiled a multi-year media agreement giving ESPN and ESPN+ exclusive rights in the U.S. and the rest of the world outside Canada for live NLL games.
Financial terms of the pact were not shared.
Under the deal, all NLL games will be carried on an ESPN network or platform. ESPN linear networks — with a minimum of ten live games annually — and ESPN+ will combine to carry up to 139 games exclusively each year.
The NLL said this would be the largest number of live televised games in the league’s history.
The agreement with ESPN follows an earlier alliance with TSN in Canada for both linear television and live-streaming coverage of NLL games, the first broadcast deal for the NLL in Canada since 2016.
“Never before in the 35-year history of the league have fans, sponsors, teams and players had this type of access and exposure across the United States,” NLL commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said via the league.
“While we, our sport and the industry continue to focus on digital native fans, we will also have the benefit of expanded reach through live distribution on ESPN linear networks.”
According to Sakiewicz, “We’ve been steadily building on our media strategy and towards this kind of distribution over the last few years and are excited about the momentum an announcement like this generates heading into NLL Faceoff Weekend, Dec. 3-4.”
Rival Premiere Lacrosse League powered by Ticketmaster has a multi-year deal with NBC Sports.
Founded in 1986, the NLL is comprised of 15 franchises across the U.S. and Canada.
The broadcast schedule for the 2021-22 season on ESPN’s linear networks will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
“We’re thrilled to reach this new multi-year rights agreement with the National Lacrosse League, adding to our already extensive commitment to the sport of lacrosse on ESPN platforms,” Dan Margulis, ESPN senior director, programming and acquisitions, said via the network.
“The NLL features elite players competing in an exciting and fast-paced game that we look forward to showcasing across ESPN and ESPN+ in the years ahead.”

Saniya Rivers, Teonni Key named top 10 nationally by ESPN; two others make top 100
By Joel Bryant, HighSchoolOT reporter
North Carolina — Two North Carolina players have been ranked in the top 10 of ESPN’s 2021 HoopGurlz national rankings. The list, which names the top 100 recruits in the country, was updated this morning. The four North Carolina players that appear in the rankings are Saniya Rivers, Teonni Key, Reigan Richardson, and Mallorie Haines.
Ashley High School’s Saniya Rivers is listed at No. 3 in the country. Rivers has already won an HSOT Honors Girls Basketball Player of the Year award and led her team to at least the fourth round of the NCHSAA 4A playoffs in each of her first three seasons. In the 2019-2020 season, Rivers averaged 25 points per game, 11.7 rebounds per game, 6.3 steals per game, and 4.2 assists per game. Rivers is committed to play at South Carolina.
Teonni Key, a 6-foot-3 wing out of Cary High School, is slotted at No. 9 nationally by ESPN. Over her three-year varsity career, Key has averaged 15.5 ppg, 9.5 rpg, and 2.3 blocks per game. Last season, Key averaged 20.6 points and 13.6 rebounds. Key is committed to play at the University of North Carolina.
The next player from N. C. on the ESPN list is Cannon School guard Reigan Richardson, who comes in at No. 34 in the country. Over Richardson’s career, she has averaged 22.1 ppg, 8.8 rpg, and 3.5 spg. In the 2019-2020 season, Cannon went 17-9 overall. It went 15-8 the season before. Richardson is pledged to Georgia and is the top commit for the Bulldogs.
Mallorie Haines from Davidson Day comes in at No. 96 nationally. Haines is rated as a 4-star prospect, along with Richardson. The 5-foo-10 guard will be staying home and playing basketball at the collegiate level for Davidson College. As a junior, Haines scored 26.15 points per game in 27 contests. She shot at a remarkable rate of 51% from outside. Haines also boasts a 4.67 GPA.
Brown Scores Last To Claim Shootout Win In Football, 49-45ITHACA, N. Y. — For the second straight meeting, the team that had the ball last between Cornell and Brown seemed destined to win. The Bears scored with 29 seconds remaining and didn’t give the Big Red enough time to counter in claiming a 49-45 shootout victory on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field. The Bears improved to 2-4 (1-2 Ivy), while the Big Red slipped to 1-5 (0-3 Ivy).
In a game that featured 94 points, 1,088 yards of offense and dramatic plays on both sides, including touchdowns on five consecutive fourth quarter drives as the lead see-sawed back and forth, Brown senior quarterback EJ Perry was the difference maker. The Ivy League Player of the Year candidate tossed for 275 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 7:34 to rally the Bears to victory. He also ran for 80 yards and a score and shook off three first half interceptions for a Brown offense that piled up 573 yards of offense.
Freshman Jameson Wang, the reigning Ivy League Rookie of the Week, ran for 101 yards and a score and tossed for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Cornell threw for 312 yards between four quarterbacks that threw passes, completing 19-of-40 passes with the top recipient being Thomas Glover with seven catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns. Curtis Raymond added four catches for 77 yards and senior Ryan Fitton had his first career receiving touchdown, a highlight catch off the back of a defender in the third. Freshman Eddy Tillman ran for his first career touchdown, while Wang, Kenney and Ben Mays all threw for scores.
The defense, which has been Cornell’s calling card all year, forced four turnovers and blocked a punt through the end zone for a safety less than a minute into the game to set the tone for a high-scoring contest.Jake Stebbins notched a game-high 12 tackles, while Demetrius Harris had eight stops and recovered a fumble. Interceptions were credited to Isiah Hogan, Kenan Clarke and Jack Muench, while Jalyx Hunt blocked a punt that was nearly recovered in the end zone for a touchdown, but instead went for a safety.
Gallery: (10-23-2021) Football vs Brown, 10.23.21First Quarter • Cornell wasted little time setting the tone, though its quick three-and-out on defense ultimately turned into a mirage in a game played on rollerskates.
• Three straight incomplete passes by Perry led to a fourth down punt, and Jalyx Hunt broke through to block it at the 18 and wasn’t able to corral it as it sped through the end zone for a safety.
• Cornell punted the ball back on the ensuing drive, and on the Bears’ first play, Isaiah Hogan jumped a route and intercepted the pass, returning it to the Brown 46.
• Eight plays later, Cornell led 9-0.
• A 15-yard run by Devon Brewer and a 20-yard pass from Ben Mays to Alex Kuzy moved the Big Red inside the red zone, and Eddy Tillman ran it in from the 8 for his first career touchdown.
• Brown answered right back, making it 9-7 when Perry completed three straight passes for 55 yards, then ran it in himself from 4 yards away with 5:16 left.
• Cornell went back to work, and its 10-play, 75-yard drive continued its early success.
• Cornell looked as though it would have to punt on 4th-and-6 from its own 39, but a running into the kicker penalty gave the team five yards to work with.
• The Big Red brought the offense back on the field and Wang found 2 yards to move the chains, and three plays later Mays hit Glover for a 43-yard touchdown.
Second Quarter • Cornell opened the second quarter with a Kenan Clarke interception of Perry in the end zone, followed by the home team turning the ball over on downs when it couldn’t convert on a fourth-and-1 from the home 43.
• Brown took advantage of its momentum, with Ian Franzoni scoring from 18 yards to cut the Cornell lead to 16-14 with 11:48 before half.
• After a Cornell punt, the Bears took their first lead of the game after an 11-play, 70-yard drive.
• The end result was a 9-yard touchdown pass from Perry to Hayes Sutton, the first of his three touchdown receptions on the day, the last of three third-down conversions on the drive for Brown.
• Two plays later, Cornell was back on top.
• A 49-yard kickoff return by Javonni Cunningham set up a short field, and Jameson Wang had runs of 18 and 28 yards, the second going to paydirt.
• The Big Red picked off Perry again with just over a minute to play in the half, with Jack Muench on the receiving end for his first pick. just outside the red zone.
Third Quarter • Brown and Cornell traded touchdowns in the third quarter, with the Bears regaining the lead on a quick drive with a short field and the Big Red answering moments later.
• A 13-yard strike from Perry to Sutton put the Bears back in the lead at 28-23 with 11:29 on the clock as the visitors took just 1:29 to go 42 yards to the end zone.
• Cornell went 75 yards on seven plays to answer back, with Wang running for 28 yards, finding Thomas Glover (19 yards) and Matt Robbert (15 yards) for big gains into the red zone.
• Facing a third-and-7 from the 11, Wang found Ryan Fitton for the senior’s first touchdown, an acrobatic play with a defender draped on him midway through the quarter to go back up 30-28.
• A defensive stop on fourth-and-1 by a line charged up by Maxton Edgerly and Max Lundeen forced the Bears to give it up on downs, but Wang was picked off just inside the red one on the home team’s ensuing drive.
• A Bears’ punt set up a Big Red drive stymied by penalties entering the fourth quarter.
Fourth Quarter • If there was any doubt the final 15 minutes would be wild, the opening play of the fourth quarter answered it.
• Cornell’s routine punt to midfield turned into Brown’s fourth miscue, as longsnapper Thomas Ferrara separated Wes Rockett from the ball and Demetrius Harris hopped on it.
• Though no points came out of the turnover, it set in motion the wild final 10 minutes.
• Brown took over at its own 20 with 12:50 left and methodically marched off 80 yards on 15 plays, with six of the last seven involving Perry.
• The senior quarterback found Sutton for his third score of the day, this time from 19 yards out, to make it 35-30.
• Six plays later, Wang completed a 22-yard scoring strike to Raymond and it was back to a three-point lead (38-35) after Glover caught a two-point conversion pass.
• Not to be outdone, the Bears answered back with the scoring play a 56-yard run by Jordan DeLucia.
• With just 2:27 remaining, the Big Red offense came back on the field and 28 seconds later it was celebrating in the end zone.
• Richie Kenney connected on passes for 50 yards to Raymond and 25 to Glover for the score and it was a 45-42 lead for the home team with 1L59 on the clock.
• Perry went to work for Brown, convering three third-downs on the way to the end zone and retaking the lead with a perfect 30-yard strike to Graham Walker oer the outstretched arms of a defender with 29 ticks remaining.
• The Big Red was able to run five plays, but needing a touchdown, couldn’t get closer than its own 42.
• A last-ditch Hail Mary pass by Kenney fell short of the end zone and the Bears celebrated the last-minute victory.
Next Up • Cornell and Princeton renew one of college football’s spookiest rivalries when the teams meet in a pre-Halloween thriller on Friday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. on Schoellkopf Field.
• The game will be broadcast to a nationwide audience on ESPNU.
• Peppered with last-second finishes, crazy endings and upsets galore, nine of the last 16 contests have been decided by a touchdown or less, with that stretching to 12 of the last 20 meetings and 19 of the last 30.
Who Could Replace Eamon McAnaney As ESPN’s Top Lacrosse Play-By-Play Guy?
We learned yesterday of the departure of Eamon McAnaney from ESPN to becoming a full-time anchor at SportsNet New York, more commonly known as SNY.
Steady rocking @EamonMcAnaney moving into full-time anchor role at SNY. He will not continue in his ESPN p-b-p roles including lacrosse.— bob raissman (@nydnraiss) January 10, 2017
With less than a month to go until the 2017 college lacrosse season gets underway, we get our first big surprise question of the season, and it doesn’t involve any teams, coaches, or players.
I look at ESPN as the top dog in televising college lacrosse games. Sure you have others such as CBS Sports Network and (when they feel like it) FS1 and FS2 on cable, as well as online-only sites such as the Patriot League Network (who takes the cake in that category), and most recently Lax Sports Network. But if people will want to get exposed to lacrosse for the first time ever, more than likely it will be either on ESPNU during the regular season or ESPN2 (or ESPN) during Championship Weekend.
McAnaney has been covering lacrosse at ESPN since 2007, first as a reporter before moving up to the booth to call the games alongside numerous color commentators, including Quint Kessenich and Paul Carcaterra.
With the loss of McAnaney, there are plenty of names that could take over the top play-by-play lacrosse spot at the network. Here’s some that stick out:
If you follow some of our staff (and I highly suggest you do), it appears our consensus is to see the Syracuse graduate (!!!) be the new number one after doing plenty of studio work during telecasts for the past few seasons. He was on the call for plenty of games in the North Carolina area, since ESPNU’s headquarters are located in Charlotte, and provided plenty of excitement and creativity to the broadcasts, along with Carc. The best example is when he made last year’s Notre Dame-North Carolina regular season game around a Game of Thrones theme. Shroff also calls college football and basketball games during the year. If he gets the top spot, ESPN might have to fill Shroff’s old role as studio host as well. Or they could hire us.
Corey has been the number two play-by-play guy for a few years now, and he’s been heard covering the first day of the NCAA Quarterfinals for the past two seasons. The veteran broadcaster has done a ton of work in his eighteen-year career, including calling field hockey for NBC during the last three Summer Olympic games. Currently, he’s the lead play-by-play voice for NBCSN’s college basketball coverage, mainly for Atlantic 10 hoops, which includes the conference’s tournament in March. He called the Albany-Maryland midweek showdown in mid-March, but also called Virginia’s home win over Johns Hopkins a couple of weeks later. Running into him a few times when I was at Brown, he was a nice guy to talk to. Similar to Shroff, I would be perfect with Corey as the new number one.
Brickley is an interesting, and new name, to the college lacrosse scene, and the broadcasting scene in general. He joined ESPN on their radio side in 2011 as a SportsCenter update anchor before eventually moving up to do some TV work beginning back in 2015, mainly on college basketball telecasts. He called last year’s regular season meeting between North Carolina and Syracuse (aka UNC’s kryptonite), as well as the NCAA First Round matchup between North Carolina and Marquette. He was on the call for the Women’s Division I National Championship game as well, when North Carolina beat Maryland, and by my surprise, the PIAA Boys’ and Girls’ Lacrosse Championships this past summer. I was walking toward the press box end at the site of the games and saw a glance at him and was shocked (and happy) to kind of see him (great pick, PCN). I forgot to DVR the boys’ game and get a chance to listen to his call, but I’m pretty sure he was solid. He also does some studio work on college basketball telecasts. I think you continue to see more of him, whether it’s play-by-play or studio work, this year. Know his name.
THE RACE TO NIFTY ON THE U???!!! It could be possible! Just listen to his calls.
The most creative broadcaster that I can name off the top of my head has to at least be considered. But unlike the other three play-by-play guys mentioned, Corrigan (from what we know) has only done lacrosse broadcasting. He’s mainly a fixture in the high school game around the Baltimore area, and does a handful of college lacrosse throughout the season, including last year’s Maryland-Johns Hopkins matchup. He also does some stuff with Corrigan Sports Enterprises throughout the year, which could also be somewhat difficult for him to the top play-by-play man. He’s an underdog indeed, but just imagine him calling a Chris Cloutier goal and hearing this:
- Mark Dixon (More of an analyst, but is able to call games, like Cuse-Hopkins last year)
- Joe Beninati (although him calling Washington Capitals games are tough already, as well as doing Big Ten lacrosse for BTN)
- Dave Ryan (was at ESPN for some time, currently the top play-by-play man at CBSSN for lacrosse as well as college football)
- Quint Kessenich (Top ESPN analyst, ain’t gonna happen)
Ridiculous Dark Horse, But He’s Done It Before
It was discussed and kicked around on Twitter a little bit, but would Sean McDonough be a good fit? He’s done the NCAA Lacrosse Championships before, notably in 2010.
I don’t believe he is a lacrosse fan (though I may be wrong), but I do know he’s a Syracuse graduate, so I’m automatically down with that. But would ESPN let him call lacrosse as the play-by-play man of Monday Night Football and some other events, such as college basketball and probably Monday Night Baseball? Probably not, but if he wants to do it, I would think they would let him?
He probably won’t get it, but if I had one suggestion for ESPN, it would be to have this pairing for one game.Scott Clarke / ESPN Images
Just imagine Jon Gruden having a Gruden Grinder for ONE LACROSSE GAME! I don’t care if he does or doesn’t know lacrosse, this would be great entertainment for the lacrosse fan and the non-lacrosse fan/Gruden lover. Imagine this call by McAnaney, but with a McDonough-Gruden dialogue:
McDonough: “Cloutier, SCORES!!!! THE CURSE IS OVER!! THE TAR HEELS ARE BACK ON TOP, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS! JOE BRESCHI’S FEEL GOOD STORY IS COMPLETE!
Gruden: “I’ll tell ya what man, I don’t know anything about lacrosse, but that was one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my life. I love lacrosse so much, I might start a Gruden camp soon for quarterbacks of an offense. I love Carson Wentz, man.”
It’d be beautiful. And I’d want it as soon as possible. Make it work, ESPN.90,000 6 sports apps you need for your Apple Watch The

The first line of the Oshi-Backes-Steen team looks scary and cool, but have you also noticed that the heyday of the Blues coincided with the return of Jaden Schworz, who has not played for several weeks due to an injury? His appearance allowed Hitchcock to stabilize the lineup, get an additional option when playing in the majority and use all his ideas.The Sharks and Coyotes were crumpled and forechecked by the Blues, and the encounter with the Caroline was so difficult because of Elliott’s nervousness. The Hurricanes were leading 3-1 after the first period, but there was little doubt that St. Louis would catch up and win.
Washington have lost points in only one match out of five, beating Chicago, Florida, Detroit and Toronto. It was possible and necessary to take more than one point in the meeting with Philadelphia, but at some point the team got up, and in overtime Niskanen earned an effective removal.Trots grumbled and complained that the Capitals had too many passengers in these games, although from the match against the Red Wings it did not appear that Washington had any significant problems at all. Ovechkin scores? Scoring. Does the majority work? Yes. Backstrom and Johansson look great, Kuznetsov finds himself, there is something to praise Brower, Burakovsky and Ward for. Holtby is helping out, and Fehr’s performance is a welcome surprise.
Colorado is returning to the fight for a place in the playoffs or is it a short-term surge associated with the super game of Semyon Varlamov, the amazing performance of Eric Johnson, the awakening of Macinnon with Iginla and the calendar that gave them five home matches and only one on New Year’s Eve going to Chicago? Let’s see what Patrick Roy’s team brings from the tour Washington – Raleigh – Miami – Tampa Bay – St. Louis.In the game against Chicago, she proved that she can cling to the result with her teeth and dry out any opponent, and the match against Dallas showed her character. With the score 0: 2 and the advantage of “Stars” it seemed that the avalanches were out of the blue, and they won 4: 3
3 teams that went on winter holidays
Minnesota have lost five out of six games in 2015 and, given the team’s poor performance in December, they have 11 defeats in their last 13 meetings. And this is with Parise, Koivu, Suter, Vanek and Niederreiter in the lineup.Wilde goalkeepers Kümper and Backström go the most, either sick or not helping out, but are they the only ones to blame for the failure? With an excellent selection of players in the top 6, the attack of the “wilds” scores negligible and unsuccessfully implements the majority, and mistakes made by the team’s defense can knock any goalkeeper off balance. Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo tried to stir up his players with a strong word, but it seems that this has made them even more limp. In such cases, management either conducts a couple of major exchanges or reports a coaching resignation.The second option is more likely.
Los Angeles no one else dares to call a boring and uninteresting team, but Darrill Sutter is not happy about it. It’s great that his Kings can score three goals in a couple of minutes and save a match in which they were down 1-5 and 3-6 (Nashville). It’s great that the “kings” do not give up, losing 0: 2 in the away meeting (“Vancouver”) or 0: 3 by the 7th minute (“Winnipeg”). But it is completely unhealthy that the “kings” began to constantly find themselves in such situations, and although they managed to score some points, such hockey will not bring them to their best.More is expected from the Quick / Jones goalkeeping duo, whose reliability factor has dropped below 92%. Below the usual level is the general play of the team in defense and in the middle zone, it enters the games unassembled, which leads to such troubles as in the matches with the Jets and Predators. Sutter’s problems are Pearson’s injury and Toffoli’s disease. For a while, the Kings coach won’t be able to count on the 70s.
Buffalo was remembered only for Nikita Zadorov’s statements about the softness of the Tampa players and Neuwirth’s cool save in the match with the same Lightning.And so, everything is sad – 7 defeats in a row.
“When I left the ice in Winnipeg, I thought that this game might be my last with Toronto,” admitted Randy Carlisle after being fired. He was forgiven – albeit with great difficulty – for the 2-9 defeat by Nashville, but when the Maple Leafs were mocked by a team that played without half of the main defenders and Evander Kane, there could be no “buts” anymore. Only resignation. Although technically Carlisle was right when he pointed to Toronto’s complicated calendar of games.The match with the Jets was the seventh straight away for the Leaves, and the players’ fatigue affected the result.
Toronto were in the wild card at the time of Carlisle’s retirement, but the indistinct play of the leaves at the end of the year and the instability that had been the team’s trademark throughout the season, along with the defensive failures, pitted against Randy. They say that one of the reasons for the dismissal could be his composition, which were sent to the Maple Leafs management, but who will tell the whole truth now.One thing is clear – this is not the end of the changes in the club. Shanahan and Nonis will be rebuilding everything, and no player can be calm about their future at Toronto.

The happiest person in the first weeks of January
David Perron . If at the same time as Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford received a call from the US National Lottery office and informed him of the jackpot win, the hockey player would put the guys from Mega Millions on hold and forget about them in 10 seconds.He was traded from Edmonton! He was traded from Edmonton to Pittsburgh! From the worst team in the West to one of the favorites in the East! From the third line of Oilers to the top 6 Penguins! To Crosby and Malkin, in a winger’s paradise. It is a pity that no one took a picture of David when he was informed about the transition. That would be a moment for history.
Perron scored in the first leg against Montreal and was very active in the team’s next two games. If the attacker can do without injury, then the exchange will be successful.
Pittsburgh sent Rob Klinkhammer to Edmonton to sweep everyone away with his power moves, as well as the first pick in the 2015 draft.For the sake of curiosity, who could be exchanged for Ray Shero for such compensation?
“Unlike Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby, who had Chris Kunitz and now David Perron and Patrick Hernqvist coming soon, Malkin hasn’t had wingers of this level this season. Let’s say Nick Spaling and Bo Bennett played next to Boston on Wednesday. Evgeniy scored himself and passed the ball. This was the Pittsburgh attack. Spaling – Rutherford’s summer acquisition – shouldn’t even be considered a top 6 player.Bennett, who has healed all his many ailments, is not drawn to the ideal partner for Malkin.
Malkin needs a good winger. Rutherford owes his rookie coach Johnston a debt. He owes it to Marc-André Fleury, who is having a brilliant season. He owes it to Crosby, who does not perform at his best (probably due to an aching hand). He owed it to himself to put an intermediate point in the work to improve the Pittsburgh, begun in the summer.
Yes, there is a ceiling on salaries, and perhaps the “penguins” will have to part with one of the players.Perhaps even good players like Paul Martin. And one of the talented juniors (better, of course, not Derrick Pulio). But action must be taken, Mr. Rutherford. Malkin’s season like this cannot be wasted. He is 28, and who knows how many more of these seasons he can give out. Eugene is finally completely healthy, he caught the courage, he likes Johnston’s scheme, he listens and hears all those who give him advice in Pittsburgh.
Now listen to who Malkin needs to get the team farther into the playoffs than they’ve done in recent years.
– I like it when my link partner is faster than me. And he must be smart. And love to shoot at goal, – said Malkin, noting that he prefers right-handed wingers.
Bennett, as we can see, is not suitable for this role. Yes, he improved his shot, but that’s not what Malkin needs. Think at Petre Sikore. Think about James Neal. Remember how they opened up, playing in the same link with Evgeny, and how hard it was to defend against his troika.
And, Mr. Rutherford, think also of these words of Malkin.
“I really like our team,” says Eugene. – I feel good. Perhaps this has not happened for a very long time. I think I can do a lot of good for the team this year.
And that’s what Pittsburgh wants from Malkin. He’s done a lot already, but he can’t do it all alone (Rob Rossi, Tribune Live).
They say Stamkos is having a bad season.
10 most important numbers of the first weeks of 2015
New Jersey’s Patrick Eliash made it to 1000 points in the NHL.He spent his entire overseas career in one club, and a Czech trip to Europe in 2004 would have gladly forgotten forever.
Of the active players, San Jose’s captain Patrick Marlo is closest to 1000 points, but has scored only 90,057 3 goals in his last 33 matches , and since December 9, he has earned one assist in 13 games. Joe Thornton’s injury is completely out of place.
54 Semyon Varlamov’s saves in the game against Chicago allowed him to set a league record for goalkeepers who played clean in away matches.
Jaromir Jagr scored three goals against Philadelphia, scoring the oldest hat-trick in NHL history, . On the league’s best snipers list of all history, he is only three paces from Phil Esposito (# 5) and 27 goals from Brett Hull (# 3).
Martin Broder’s 125th shutout fell on Colorado, led by his eternal rival Patrick Roy. The Avalanche head coach after the match was angry not so much because of this, but because his team threw at the opponent’s goal only 16 times.
Czech Republic and Boston youth team forward David Pastrnjak scored his first NHL goals against Philadelphia. Colorado rookie Croat Borna Rendulic also made his league debut.
Patrick Kane became the first American ice hockey player to score at least 20 goals in his first eight seasons in the NHL. Just in case, we remind you that he is a compatriot of Modano, Tkachak, Carson and Brett Hull.
Philip Forsberg scored 38th point of the season and improved Alexander Radulov’s record for Nashville newcomers.It was installed back in the spring of 2006.
Carey Price has his 200th career win and it would be strange if he wasn’t nominated for the Vezina Trophy. Do you remember how your goalkeeper career began at Montreal?
Rangers have won 13 of their last 14 matches but are only sixth in the East. What was Vigneau’s team doing until December?
Contracts and transfers
Dani Heatley finished badly (healed) to the point that Anaheim was put up for draft refusals.Of course, no one took the striker, who scored 50 goals twice per season, and the “ducks” with a clear conscience sent him to the farm club. Hitley’s performance in the AHL is not impressive – 2 goals in 6 games. Agent Dani can start calling German and Swiss clubs.
Edmonton took the Boston forward Matt Fraser from Waver, who had a hard time showing himself in the previous team due to lack of playing time. In the Oilers, he has already scored two goals. Nice move, Maktevish! But this does not compensate for the squandering of one year from Leon Dreiseitl’s contract.The third draft pick was still sent to the junior league, but they did it too late.
Calgary put one of the most terrible, according to The Hockey News, fighters of the modern NHL Brian McGrattan on the waver. After the 2004 lockout, he spent four seasons with 10 or more fights each, but in this championship Bolling and Engelland are taking over his duties at the Flames.
The first points for the oilmen were scored by Derek Roy , for which Edmonton gave Mark Arcobello to Nashville.Ok, the exchange might work, but the Predators were ready to part with Roy without compensation, and playmaker Arcobello is both younger and no less effective, judging by the current season. And Derek’s salary is not such that, because of his exchange, it was necessary to release the payment.
Dallas took advantage of the fact that defender David Shlemko was no longer needed by the Coyotes and took him back. God knows not what in terms of attack, but for a team that allows even more Arizona to pass, it will do quite well. Klingberg cannot yet defend at the NHL level, Oleksyak lacks stability.
Nick Foligno did not wait to enter the free agent market and extended his contract with Columbus for another 6 years (33 million). What is embarrassing. Nick has never scored 20 goals in a season before, and his current 18 can be attributed to a number of factors. Second, he implements shots with an exorbitant percentage (above 20). Someday this luck must stop.
To the contract Bobrovsky (29.7 million in 4 years), on the contrary, do not find fault. He earned a high salary, the term of the agreement is ideal for both parties.If Columbus do not progress, Sergei will be able to leave the team at the ideal age for the goalkeeper, and if the uniforms continue to improve, he will be able to renew the agreement on more favorable terms in just 4 years.
For 6 years with an average salary of 4.1 million signed with Florida 22-year-old Nick Bugstead , who in the second full season in the NHL leads the team with 15 goals. The American has enough talent to grow into a strong center, and can join the large list of young players who got a big contract early and quit playing.
Exchange Drew Shore for Korban Knight – a chance for two young centers to prove themselves in new places. Shore didn’t have a place at Florida’s base, but he played impressively at the college level and has shown himself in the AHL. Corban is another former student who was acquired by Calgary as a result of the exchange with the Panthers. Both are tall guys with a throw and a vision of the site. You just need to cling to the chance.
Andrey Pedan knocked out Jarred Tinordi from the Canadiens farm club.Uf-f-f.
Swedish “Vekshe” signed Jeff Tambellini and Joshua Hennessy – the 27th and 43rd numbers of the cool 2003 draft within a week. Corey Perry left on the 28th, Patrice Bergeron left on the 45th.
Todd Bertuzzi , who will soon turn 40, has signed a viewing contract with the Ottawa farm club for 25 matches. It is possible that the veteran will have a chance to play in the NHL. The Senators may start a sale ahead of the deadline, and someone will have to swap out players traded for draft picks or prospectuses.In any case, from that Bertuzzi, who scored 40 goals in the link with Näslund and Morisson, there is only a name.

Axel Holmström, selected by the Red Wings in Round 7 of the 2014 Draft, has 7 points (1 goals, 6 assists) in the World Youth Championship.In the Swedish league he has 12 points (5 + 7), which is not bad at all for a player born in June 1996.

Ottawa defender Mark Borovetsky injured his leg during a pre-match warm-up while playing football. It’s about a deep cut. A regiment of hockey players arrived with ridiculous injuries. Let’s say his teammate Craig Anderson missed several matches at one time due to a cut in his hand, which he received while cutting a chicken leg.

Colorado is offering center forward Ryan O’Reilly to the Eastern Conference clubs, but so far no one has offered them the strong defender the avalanches are looking for, former Denver Post journalist Adrian Dayter said.According to ESPN, it is possible that O’Reilly will be traded for Arizona defender Keith Yandle, and believe me, the Coyotes will be delighted if this happens. Provided that Ryan himself will play for them, and not serve out the number, as he does now in Denver.
According to the Boston Globe, it is possible with the trade of Bostonian Tory Krug to Yendla. The Bruins will also have to send a young player to Arizona and clear the payment.
New Jersey may trade Jaromir Jagr, believes Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.Yaro was dissatisfied with DeBour’s resignation, he did not like the current position of the team, and it was almost impossible to fix it.

“Now Kuznetsov earns 900 thousand a year, and so far he has not managed to reveal his full potential. Most likely, the Capitals will offer him a short-term agreement – say, 1.5 million a year, and Evgeny needs to make a decision. What to do next – stay in the NHL or return to the KHL, where he will earn more? Kuznetsov will make good money in Washington, but on condition that he shows himself in the position of the second center of the team.Most likely, the club will not rush to re-sign the contract, but will wait until summer to assess the value of Kuznetsov ” (Chuck Gormley, Capitals Insider).
“A Buffalo News journalist writes that the Sabers are ditching the season. I want to clarify that the players themselves will never merge matches, and this is especially true of today’s Buffalo. Understand that 90 percent of these “blades” will benefit from McDavid’s appearance and future success. They play for themselves, for their future work.The same applies to the coaching staff. They want to win. They do everything for this. Management is another matter. He’ll be here when the Sabers draft Connor. Of course, management cannot order a team to lose on purpose. But he can put together a team that cannot win. ” (Matthew Burnaby, Twitter).

The all-star match is no longer an indicator of a hockey player’s toughness, and Boudreau, Babcock and Desjardins are only glad that there will be few players from their teams in Columbus. Datsyuk, Zeterberg and other veterans are more excited about the extra weekend than being invited to the show. Have you missed the All Star game?

Dickinson College is a private liberal arts college in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1773 as Carlisle Grammar School, Dickinson was chartered on September 9, 1783, six days after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, making it the first college to be founded after the founding of the United States. Dickinson was founded by Benjamin Rush, signer of the United States’ Declaration of Independence, and is named John and Mary College after Constitutionally signed John Dickinson, later Governor of Pennsylvania, and his wife, Mary Norris Dickinson.They donated most of their extensive personal libraries to the new college.
In addition to offering either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in 22 disciplinary majors and 20 interdisciplinary majors, Dickinson offers an engineering option through his 3-2 program, which consists of three years at Dickinson and two years at Columbia University School of Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, or Case Western Reserve University. Upon successful completion of both parts of the program, students receive a bachelor’s degree from Dickinson in their chosen field and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the school of engineering.
Dickinson Law School is located adjacent to the college campus and was founded in 1834 as its law school. He received an independent charter in 1890 and terminated all college membership in 1917. In 2000, the School of Law merged with Pennsylvania State University.
Carlisle Grammar School was founded in 1773 as a frontier Latin school for young men in Western Pennsylvania.Over the years, Carlisle’s elites such as James Wilson and John Montgomery have been instrumental in the development of the school as a college. In 1782, Benjamin Rush, a physician who was a prominent leader during and after the American Revolution, met in Philadelphia with Montgomery and William Bingham, a prominent businessman and politician. Since their conversation about founding Frontier College in Carlisle took place on his porch, “Bingham Porch” was a long rally cry in Dickinson.
Dickinson College was commissioned by the Pennsylvania Legislature on September 9, 1783, six days after the signing of the Treaty of Paris (1783 BC).) that ended the American Revolution, it was the first college to be founded in a newly independent country. Rush intended to name the college after Pennsylvania President John Dickinson and his wife Mary Norris Dickinson, suggesting “John and Mary College.” The Dickinsons donated an extensive library, which they jointly owned, to the new college, one of the largest libraries in the colonies. Instead, the name Dickinson College was chosen. When it was founded, its location west of the Susquehanna River made it the westernmost college in the United States.For the first meeting of trustees, held in April 1784, Rush made his first trip to Carlisle. The Trustees selected Charles Nisbet, a Scottish minister and scholar, as the college’s first president. He arrived and began serving on July 4, 1785, serving until his unexpected death in 1804.
A combination of financial problems and disagreements among faculty led to the closure of the college from 1816 to 1821. In 1832, when the trustees were unable to resolve the dispute over the teaching plan, they again ordered the temporary closure of Dickinson.
Law School dates from 1833. It became a separate school in 1890, although law school and college continued to divide the president until 1912. The School of Law is currently a branch of Pennsylvania State University.
Dickinson’s 18th century alumni included Robert Cooper Grier and Roger Brooke Thani, who later became U.S. Supreme Court justices and served together in court for 18 years.
lasted nearly four decades.
During the 19th century, two prominent Dickinson College alumni played prominent roles in the lead-up to the Civil War.They were James Buchanan, 15th President of the United States, and Roger Brooke Taney, 5th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Dickinson is one of three liberal arts colleges that the president and chief justice graduated from (Bowdoin and Amherst et al.). Taney chaired the Supreme Court in Dred Scott v. Sandford, which ruled that Congress could not outlaw slavery in the Federal Territories by overturning the Missouri Compromise. Buchanan gave up all the prestige of his administration for congressional approval of the Lecompton Constitution in Kansas.During the Civil War, the campus and town of Carlisle were occupied twice by Confederate troops in 1863.
When George Metzger, a 1798 graduate, died in 1879, he left his land and $ 25,000 to the city of Carlisle to found a college for women. In 1881, the Metzger Institute was opened. The college operated independently until 1913, when its building was leased to Dickinson College to educate women. Until 1963, the building served as a women’s hostel.
In 1887, Zatae Longsdorf became the first woman to envelop Dickinson.In 1901, John Robert Paul Brock became the first black man to graduate from Dickinson in 1919, Esther Popel Shaw was the first black woman to graduate from high school.
Henry Clark, the graduate who turned the Klondike bar into a national ice cream brand, founded the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues at Dickinson College and founded the Clarke Center in 1994.
Carlisle also housed the Carlisle Army Barracks, which were converted in the late 1870s for use as the Carlisle Indian Industrial School.In 1879, Dickinson College and the nearby Carlisle Indian School began a partnership when James Andrew McCauley, the college president, led the first Indian school worship service. Collaboration between institutions lasted nearly four decades, from the opening until the closure of the Indian School in 1918. Dickinson College professors have served as chaplains and special educators for Native American students. Professor Charles Francis Himes, Dr. George Edward Reed, Stephen Byrd, and Joshua Lippincott have fostered institutional relationships through religious services, counseling meetings, lectures and graduation talks.Dickinson College students volunteered for services, observed teaching methods and participated in activities at the Indian school. Dickinson students visited the Indian school to offer their talents and services. On October 24, 1896, Dickinsonian reported that volunteer Sunday School teachers had come from a branch of the YMCA College. It is said that teachers with Indian students “enjoy a rare privilege. The work is doubly interesting because it is possible to study the characteristics of his students while at the same time drawing many valuable lessons on teaching methods. “The college gave Dickinson students half-day leave to attend the annual graduation and “very interesting exercises” at the Indian School. Dickinson College has admitted selected students of the Indian School to the Preparatory School (Conway Hall) and received a college-level education.
Dickinson also hosted Native American students directly – Thomas Marshall was one of the first such students at Dickinson. In 1910, Frank Mount Pleasant was the first Native American to graduate from Dickinson College.
Since 2000, Dickinson’s enrollment has dropped 20%, SAT scores have risen 100 points, and the institutional fund has more than doubled.
In 2000, Dickinson opened a new science building, Tom Hall, a state-of-the-art interdisciplinary institution to house astronomy, computer science, mathematics, and physics. Tom hosts Dickinson’s groundbreaking Physics Workshop program, which was the first stage of a new science complex. Opened in 2008, the rector’s LEED Gold Certified Research Facility serves as a research and learning site in a skillful and sustainable environment.It has laboratories, classrooms and research facilities, as well as departments of biology, chemistry, psychology, and interdisciplinary programs in biochemistry, molecular biology, and neurobiology. It also offers courses in emerging fields of bioinformatics and nanotechnology.
On January 22, 2013, Dickinson announced that it had acquired Allison United Methodist Church to expand the college. The Allison Limestone Building and Property is a longtime landmark in Carlisle, bordering the Benjamin Rush campus in Dickinson.The building, located at 99 Mureland Avenue, provides the college with more than just events, guest speakers, student presentations, meetings, ecumenical worship and additional offices.
Dickinson is committed to campus sustainability through several initiatives. On the 2010 Endowment Sustainable Development Institute green report card, Dickinson was one of 15 US schools to receive the highest possible A- grade. That same year, Dickinson was named the “Classroom School” by Sierra magazine in its comprehensive guide to the greenest colleges in the United States – Live (Green) and Learn.The college’s commitment that learning about the environment and sustainability is a defining characteristic. Dickinson’s education was also voted best in the 2010 Green Honor Roll by the Princeton Review.
In 2008, the college acquired 100% of its energy from wind power, had solar panels on campus, owned and operated an organic garden and farm, and signed a climate commitment agreement with American college presidents. The college’s emphasis on education for sustainability recognizes its importance to innovation and the lives of tomorrow’s graduates.The college is committed to being carbon neutral by 2020. This includes a combination of enhancing energy efficiency on campus, switching energy sources, promoting behavior change and carbon sequestration.
The quiet Dickinson campus is located three blocks from the main square of the historic town of Carlisle, the capital of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and the site of the country’s second oldest military base, Carlisle Barracks, which are now used for military purposes.College. The campus is characterized by buildings lined with limestone and many trees.
Frontier Gymnasium was founded in 1773 and housed in a small two-room brick building on Liberty Avenue, near Bedford and Pomfret Streets. When Dickinson College was founded in 1783, this building was expanded to accommodate all functions. In 1799, the Penn family sold the west end of Carlisle to a new college, which became its campus. On June 20 of that year, Founding Trustee John Montgomery laid the cornerstone of the building on the new land.The twelve-room building burned to the ground on February 3, 1803, five weeks after the doors were opened. The college was temporarily relocated.

A national fundraising campaign was launched a few weeks after the fire, with President Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State James Madison, Chief Justice John Marshall and many others. Benjamin Latrobe, already noted for his design work on the Pennsylvania Shore and Princeton University Nassau Hall, and soon to be named the Capitol Architect, was selected to design the new structure.The Latrobe building design, now known as “Western College” or “Old West”, featured monumental and classical elements in a simple and subdued academic style. The building was to be bounded by a classically inspired dome decorated with a Triton figure. Instead, a local artisan created the mermaid, which has been a symbol of the college ever since. Latrobe, who donated his services to the college, first visited the building in 1813. The total cost of Western College exceeded $ 22,000 and, although classes began in 1805, the work was not completed until 1822.More than 200 years after its doors first opened, the Old West is today the ceremonial heart of the college, as all students march through the open doors during their convocation at the start of their first year, and march from the same doors to receive their degrees and graduate. The Old West, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, also houses the college administration, several classrooms, a computer lab, and a college chapel.
Throughout the 19th century, Dickinson expanded across what is now its main academic quadrangle, officially known as the John Dickinson Campus.Dickinson expanded across College Street to build the Holland Union Building and the Weidner-Spar Library, which, along with several dormitories, makes up the Benjamin Rush campus. Across the High Street (U.S. Route 11) is the Charles Nisbet campus, home to the largest grouping of dorms. Dickinson Law School, part of Pennsylvania, is located immediately south of the Nisbet campus. Together, these three grassy units make up the vast majority of the college campus, although several outlying buildings surround these core areas.In addition, the college owns playgrounds and a large organic farm just a short walk from the main campus.
