The first work stoppage in the NFL since 1987 started Friday at midnight, as the league decided to institute a lockout of the players after negotiations between players and owners who were searching for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement broke down.
The move came at the end of an eventful 24 hours for the league and players, one that saw the two sides break off talks Friday afternoon after discussing a new proposal from the owners. The brief possibility of a third extension in the talks was raised, but shortly before 5 p.m., DeMaurice Smith of the NFLPA said it first wanted assurances it would get 10 years of audited financial information. Apparently, that was not forthcoming.
“I would dare any one of you to pull out any economic indicator that would suggest that the National Football League is falling on hard times,” Smith said. “The last 14 days, the National Football League has said, ‘Trust us.’ But...
It took exactly six minutes for the Bruins to see a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit against the Islanders Friday night at Nassau Coliseum, and an awarded empty-netter made it a 4-2 Islanders victory. The Bruins remain winless in their last four games (0-2-2).
With the B's leading 2-0 on goals from Nathan Horton and Zdeno Chara, Islanders forward Matt Moulsen scored a timely power-play goal in the final seconds of the second period. Michael Grabner and Jack Hillen would add goals early in the third period to wipe away the Bruins' lead. P.A. Parenteau was awarded an empty net goal with 10 seconds remaining when he was taken down by Milan Lucic.
Friday's regulation loss marked the first of the season in which the B's led after the second period, as they entered the game 25-0-1 in such games. The Bruins have not won since March 3, when they beat the Lightning at TD Garden for what at the time was their seventh...
For the second game in a row the Celtics were shorthanded with just 10 available players, and for the second game in a row they came up short in a close game down the stretch, losing 89-86 in Philadelphia. Unlike their loss to the Clippers earlier this week, the margin against Philadelphia was in single-digits, but the Celtics still trailed for most of the game. They were finally able to get a lead briefly in the fourth quarter, but it was short-lived.
The Celtics trailed 87-84 with 30 seconds left, but Andre Iguodala drove on Sasha Pavlovic and scored with 12.5 seconds left. Pavlovic was in for defense as Paul Pierce had five fouls at the time. It was a decent night offensively for some of the new players as Jeff Green led all Celtics with 18 points and Nenad Krstic added 16 points and 15 rebounds. But Kevin Garnett had another rough shooting night (5-for-13) and Ray Allen missed nine of his 11 shots and didn't score in the first three...
