Cardinals' dramatic rallies force Game 7

Down to the final strike in both the ninth and 10th innings, the Cardinals rallied twice before David Freese homered leading off the 11th inning in a dramatic 10-9 victory over the Rangers that forced a deciding Game 7 of the World Series.

It was the second time Freese had delivered in the game. His two-run triple in the ninth forced extra innings, and then St. Louis scored two more in the 10th after Josh Hamilton's home run had given the Rangers a 9-7 lead in the top of the inning.

Game 7 is Friday night. The Rangers will start Matt Harrison. The Cardinals did not immediately announce a starter, with Tony La Russa having to choose between Kyle Lohse, Edwin Jackson or even possibly Chris Carpenter on three days' rest.

Julien: Bruins' struggles nightmarish
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Thursday's loss to the Canadiens that the idea of being in last place in the Eastern Conference isn't nearly as troubling to him as the team's play. 

“I’d probably get nightmares thinking about how we’re playing right now more than anything else,” Julien said. “It’s more about our team right now. I don’t care where we are in the standings. What I care about is how we play, and right now we’re not playing at all to the level we should be.”

The Bruins are 3-6-0, with the Blue Jackets (three points) the only team with fewer points than the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Bruins have scored one goal or less in four of their nine games this season, something they never did once in October last season. 

“Unfortunately, we’re not sitting here looking at one or two players you can move around,” Julien said. “You’re...

NBA labor deal 'within striking distance'

After meetings lasted deep into the early morning hours on Thursday, the NBA and NBPA had a much shorter meeting later in the day. Although talks lasted only seven hours, there were more than a few hints of optimism that a deal for a new collective bargaining agreement could be struck this weekend, and perhaps as early as Friday.

"I think we're within striking distance of getting a deal," union chief Billy Hunter said.

There was a symbolic moment when someone asked when the union expected a big move to be made. NBA commissioner David Stern, who was sitting in the back of the room, called out, "Tomorrow."

"There's no guarantee that we're going to get a deal done, but we're going to give it a heck of a shot," said Stern, who also answered, "Yes," when asked if he knew what a new deal would look like. Although the two sides have not discussed the basketball-related income split, Stern said,...

B's fall to last in Eastern conference
By: DJ Bean

Tomas Plekanec scored for both teams Thursday at TD Garden, but it was his tally for his own team that secured a victory for the Canadiens over the Bruins. The Habs came out of the first game of the home-and-home series with a 2-1 victory, while the Bruins fell to last place in the Eastern conference.

Plekanec accidentally drew a puck past Carey Price and into his own net (the goal was credited to Patrice Bergeron) to give the B's a 1-0 lead in the first period, but Erik Cole tied it in the second before Plekanec atoned for his error by beating Tim Thomas in the third period for his third goal of the season. 

The game featured perhaps a long overdue fight between youngsters Brad Marchand and P.K. Subban, who fought in the second period after two unsuccessful attempts at squaring off.

The two tried going at 13:47 of the second period but were sent off for holding. On their second attempt, they dropped the gloves at 15:43 of the second,...
