Blackhawks end 49-year Stanley Cup drought

PHILADELPHIA -- Patrick Kane scored at 4:10 of overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-3, Thursday night in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals to claim their title since 1961. The Blackhawks won in a surreal ending as Kane took a shot that was lost by the officials and nearly everyone in the building as it was lost momentarily underneath the goal. After a review, the goal was awarded to Kane and the Cup belonged to Chicago. 

 

Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd scored in the second period to erase a one-goal deficit and give Chicago a 3-2 lead, which the Hawks enjoyed until Scott Hartnell's second goal of the game with just 3:59 left in regulation. 

 

The Flyers took a 2-1 lead on Danny Briere's goal at 8:00 of the second period before Chicago responded on a 4-on-4 situation. In addition to breaking a 49-year drought, the Blackhawks claimed their fourth Stanley Cup championship franchise...

Ellsbury needs 'a little more' rest

CLEVELAND -- According to Red Sox manager Terry Francona the report from Dr. Lewis Yocum in regards to Jacoby Ellsbury's injured ribs suggested "he needs a little bit more rest." Francona couldn't give the complete evaluation since he hadn't gotten the opportunity to fully debrief with both Yocum and the team's medical director, Dr. Thomas Gill. "We want to talk through it," Francona said. "I think Tom and Yocum have talked since I heard about it, but we'll probably stay here a while and try to get some information tonight." Ellsbury was in Los Angeles being examined by Yocum Wednesday. For more information on the Red Sox see the team page by clicking here.

Beckett to throw Saturday; Lat the problem

CLEVELAND -- Speaking before the Red Sox ' Wednesday night game against the Indians at Progressive Field, Josh Beckett explained that it is his right latissimus muscle that has been the problem, and was the deciding factor when the team decided to shut down the pitcher's throwing. Beckett said that if he passes the physical tests, scheduled to administered either Thursday or Friday, he will throw for the first time since the 25-pitch bullpen session he was forced to cut short May 28.

 

"Whenever I hurt my lat that's when they said, 'You know what, see the doctor, let's do the tests. Let's do whatever we need to do,'" explained Beckett. 

 

"I wasn't throwing normal. When you don't throw normal that's when muscles aren't used to being like that. There are certain days I still feel it, but I'm having a really good day today. Today is one of those days where I get in and think, 'Why can't I play catch today...

Ainge on Big Show: Celtics 'not in sync'
By: DJ Bean

Celtics president Danny Ainge joined The Big Show on Wednesday and spoke about the number of fouls that have been called, the need for the Celtics to play like they did in the previous two rounds, and the lack of worry with just one day between games.

 

"Some of our fouls just aren't smart," Ainge said. "We're wasting our fouls doing silly things and you can't do that. When you're a team player on a team, you've got be able to use your fouls wisely and I don't think we're doing a good enough job doing that. We're getting out of position, which is causing us to react, and we're just not in sync.

 

"For whatever reason offensively and defensively, we're not playing like the team that won six games in a row against Cleveland and Orlando, and if we're going to win this series, we have to get back to playing like that team." 

 

Ainge also pointed to an ability to defend and rebound...
