There was a period of time on Sunday afternoon in Boston when it seemed as if Rick Nash was going at a different speed than everyone else, and those moments are exactly why the Rangers brought Nash to Broadway in the first place.Big No. 61 in white was flying around the ice, over the boards for every other shift early in the second period, scoring his first goal in the opening nine games of the ...
Henrik Lundqvist waited just long enough to come onto the ice at the beginning of yesterday’s Rangers practice to put a scare into everybody watching. But eventually he skated out and participated fully with his team, putting to rest any worry that the left shoulder issue that arose at the end of Game 2 on Sunday afternoon in Boston would linger."It’s under control," ...
"I think we can defend. It doesn’t bother me, it just surprises me a little bit, we made some mistakes that we very rarely do on simple coverage," Tortorella said. "The third and fourth goal, they’re simple coverages. We beat ourselves. I’m not disrespecting Boston by any means, but we hurt ourselves on our play away from the puck. I think that’s one of the ...
The Knicks’ lofty regular season - 54 wins, an Atlantic Division title, a second seed - was rendered meaningless by their second-round exit from the playoffs. A team that believed it was better than the Heat - the Knicks beat Miami in three of four regular-season games - never got there to challenge them in the Eastern Conference Finals. There were some nice accomplishments - including ...
BALTIMORE - Buck Showalter hasn’t been as mesmerized by the Yankees’ fast start as have many others around baseball.Instead, the man who used to have Joe Girardi’s job in The Bronx pointed to the ways the team has been able to overcome the injuries to so many of their high-profile players."I’ve got news for you: Travis Hafner and Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay have ...

Le bonheur [DVD]
Much has been made about how shocking Le bonheur (Happiness) was to audiences when it first screened in 1965. However, shocking is not the right word because that implies something sudden and aggressive--an assault on the eyes and the sensibility in the vein of Un chien anda ... ...
BALTIMORE - Phil Hughes and pitching coach Larry Rothschild didn’t make any drastic between-starts changes with tonight’s Yankees starter after he failed to get out of the first inning in his last outing Wednesday against the Mariners at Yankee Stadium."I felt I was a little on the side of the ball. That made my fastball go over the middle of the plate. I tried to find the ...
BALTIMORE - No Yankee is more familiar with Travis Hafner than CC Sabathia, making the ace the resident expert."It looks like he is back,’’ Sabathia said of his former Indians teammate whose career has been derailed by injuries. "He is healthy and happy.’’Last night at Camden Yards, Hafner put a smile on Yankees faces with a game-tying homer in the ninth inning ...
YANKEES: Hughes did not make it out of the first inning in his last start, a 10-batter, six-hit, two-walk, seven-run disaster vs. the Mariners at the Stadium. He has generated just three swinging strikes in 134 pitches covering his past two starts. The 26-year-old has a 6.58 ERA and 5.2 Ks per nine innings in six appearances at Camden Yards. ORIOLES: Gonzalez - who was in line to win the ...
It was intended as a joke."Outfield? What outfield?" Mets general manager Sandy Alderson quipped at the GM meetings in November, referring to the unproven outfielders on the team’s roster.However, Alderson’s joke morphed into reality - the Mets’ outfield has been a revolving door. Perhaps the biggest example of that is Collin Cowgill, who started on Opening Day but ...
BALTIMORE - The Yankees didn’t need to see Orioles closer Jim Johnson implode for a third consecutive appearance to appreciate Mariano Rivera."Believe me, I don’t take it for granted," manager Joe Girardi said after Rivera picked up his 17th save in as many chances in last night’s 6-4, 10-inning win over the Orioles at Camden Yards. "It’s hard to do year ...
Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back.

San Francisco StarSan Francisco Star – San Francisco News Headlines, Local & Global
The San Francisco Star is essentially a local San Francisco newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for San Francisco, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets. The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy. We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding of the news we deliver. Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news. We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of San Francisco, California, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the San Francisco Star.
Authorities have arrested the 12-year-old brother of an 8-year-old girl who was mysteriously stabbed at her home in a rural Northern California community last month.
CBS News quoted Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz, as saying that the boy will be charged with homicide.
The boy had told police last month that he encountered an intruder in the home on the day Leila Fowler was killed. He described the man as being tall with long gray hair.
The April 27 attack shook the tight knit Valley Springs community of about 7,400 people and set off a massive manhunt. Investigators did a door-to-door sweep of houses, storage sheds and horse stables. (ANI)
