Devils' Shootout Woes

by Tara Sledjeski

A lot has happened in the National Hockey League since March 10, 2013.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup, and so have the Los Angeles Kings. The New York Rangers made the Stanley Cup Finals after trading away their captain in 2014. TJ Oshie of the St. Louis Blues went from a little known right winger to a national superstar. The success of the Winter Classic led to the Stadium Series and more outdoor hockey and Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player in league history to score 700 goals.

One thing that hasn’t happened since March 10, 2013? The New Jersey Devils have not won in the shootout in a regular season game.

BOSTON -- There is positive news regarding communication between Yankees GM Brian Cashman and Alex Rodriguez, for a change.

While the team says goodbye to longtime Shortstop Derek Jeter, it prepares to welcome back A-Rod, who's suspension will come to an end after the Yankees' final game Sunday, with open arms.

“I’ve already been talking to A-Rod personally," said Cashman. "I reached out to Alex about ten days ago. I talked to him trying to get his thought process on what’s the best way to come back."

Well, it's the worst time of the season for every fantasy football owner out there: the start of the bye weeks. You know what's even worse? There's SIX teams out this week, and it's only week 4. SIX! It's like the fantasy football gods said to themselves "Hey, let's have some fun and put an absurd amount of teams on the bye just to mess with some managers." Not to mention, basically everybody is going down with some injury or another. As you can tell, I've had some (scratch that, A LOT) of frustation these past couple weeks.

Ranger fans were worried about Derek Stepan when he wasn’t able to go in the team’s first preseason game against the Devils on Monday night. Stepan had a leg injury, but the one he sustained Wednesday afternoon at practice was far more severe.

For the Jets, the Pressure’s On

Let’s be honest. Calvin Johnson is the best wide receiver in the game. He’s got the height (6’5), the speed (runs 4.35 40-yard dash), and of course his insane numbers in the NFL (68 TDs, 9,657 yards in 7+ seasons) that prove he is the best. Week in and week out we see him make spectacular catches in double, triple coverage that would be unimaginable for anyone else. Even Rex Ryan, the coach who adores the “island” corner or man-to-man press coverage on the outside knows that isn’t possible against this Lion.
