It almost seems like yesterday that the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers to win the 2014 Stanley Cup.

Devils' Shootout Woes

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."
