Mashup: NFL ripped for Cushing controversy

Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing again was selected NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, despite his pending suspension after testing positive for banned drugs last season. Writers who again voted for Cushing, anti-doping experts and pundits with advice all seem to come to the same conclusion: It's the NFL's fault. Read about that, plus get caught up on the Ken Griffey napping controversy in Seattle, and find out how former Mariner Eric Byrnes -- dismissed after stunning his teammates by pulling back on a suicide squeeze bunt -- is enjoying life as an $11 million recreational softball player. It's all at Thursday's Morning Mashup, along with videos, trivia and more.

Thornton on Game 7: 'Just drink it in'

PHILADELPHIA -- Only minutes after losing their third straight in the series to the Flyers, 2-1, many Bruins attempted to put on a brave face as they now face a do-or-die Game 7 at TD Garden on Friday night. 

 

“Like my buddy once said, ‘Pressure is five kids, no job.’ This is just fun," Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said. "Game 7. Enjoy it. Just drink it in, as they say.”

 

Milan Lucic, who scored Boston's only goal and the first by the Bruins in nearly 135 minutes of play in the series, also attempted to put things in perspective. "We're just looking forward to the challenge ahead of us," Lucic said. "We know it's going to be an exciting game. I'm not nervous. I think you have to embrace the struggle, embrace the challenge and have fun with it."

Flyers force Game 7 with 2-1 win over B's

PHILADELPHIA -- Mike Richards scored in the first period and Daniel Briere followed with a second-period tally, while Michael Leighton stopped 31 shots as the Flyers beat the Bruins 2-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night at the Wachovia Center to force a Game 7 at TD Garden in Boston Friday night. 

 

Milan Lucic scored with one minute left to make it a one-goal game, but the Bruins could not get the equalizer and have lost three straight after leading the series 3-0. It is the first time since 1975 that an NHL series has gone to a Game 7 and the first time in North American professional sports that any team has forced a seventh game after trailing a best-of-seven series 3-0 since the 2004 Red Sox.

 

The Bruins will try to avoid the fate of the 1942 Detroit Red Wings, the 1975 Pittsburgh Penguins and the 2004 New York Yankees when they host Game 7 Friday, with the winner getting home-ice advantage against the Montreal...

Wakefield records strikeout No. 2,000

Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield recorded his 2,000th career strikeout when he punched out Blue Jays outfielder Vernon Wells to conclude the fourth inning. Wakefield became one of just four active pitchers to reach the milestone, joining Phillies left-hander Jamie Moyer and Yankees starters Javier Vazquez and Andy Pettitte.

  

"I’m very proud of that," Wakefield said after the game. "It’s a tribute to longevity and I feel very blessed I’ve been able to wear this uniform for a long time and I’ve been able to accomplish 2,000 strikeouts."

 

Wakefield concluded his outing with five strikeouts, and now has 2,002 in his career. In his first start since April 25, he allowed three runs on five hits in seven innings, suffering a hard-luck loss in Boston's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Jays.

 

The pitcher will now wait to find out whether he will get another start...
