Blackhawks one win away from Cup

The Chicago Blackhawks raced out to a 3-0 first-period lead and didn't look back in a 7-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals at the United Center in Chicago. Brent Seabrook, Dave Bolland and Kris Versteeg scored in the opening 20 minutes, forcing the Flyers to pull Michael Leighton in favor of Brian Boucher.

 

The Flyers cut the lead to 5-3 in the third period, but the Hawks responded with a goal with just over five minutes remaining to seal the victory and a 3-2 series lead. The Hawks are one win away from their first Stanley Cup championship since 1961 and their fourth overall.

 

Game 6 is Wednesday night in Philadelphia. If the Flyers win, they will force a seventh and deciding game Friday night back in Chicago.

Ray Allen has record-breaking night

In the greatest display of long-range perimeter shooting in NBA finals history, Ray Allen made his first seven 3-point field goal attempts in a blazing first half and set a new NBA finals single-game record with his eighth trey midway through the third quarter. Allen had 27 first-half points and made 7-of-8 from long range. He finished the game with 32 points and 8-of-11 treys.

 

Both the seven 3's in the first half and the eight for a game are new NBA finals single-game records. Michael Jordan and Kenny Smith held the previous record with six 3's in a half while Scottie Pippen and Smith held the mark for a game with seven before Sunday night. Allen finished 11-for-20 from the field, including 8-for-11 from long distance, and a game-high 32 points.

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said that he was sore but fine after being hit on the back of the left hand by a pitch from Orioles reliever Mark Hendrickson in Boston's 4-3 loss in Baltimore. The slugger did not leave the game after the stray pitch in the seventh inning, and ended up lining out to right field in his final at-bat of the contest.
