Mashup: Eli 'excited' to host 'SNL' May 5

Giants quarterback Eli Manning will host "Saturday Night Live" on May 5 after turning down the offer a few times before. He follows in the footsteps of his brother, Peyton, who hosted the show five years ago.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Eli said Monday, as the Giants gathered for their first offseason workout program. “It’s something that’s been offered a few times and I’ve turned it down. But it seemed like the right time. I felt ready to do it and I’m excited about that opportunity.”

Eli said he has no stage experience, although he has appeared in a few commercials since arriving in New York.

“Not much Broadway or acting, so this will be a new experience for me,” he said. “I’m a little nervous about it, but excited also. It should be a lot of fun. It will take some work, but it should be something I’ll always remember.”

Lucic on Alzner: 'I'm not a crybaby'
By: DJ Bean

WASHINGTON -- Milan Lucic has been called a lot of things before, but Monday brought an accusation with which he feels unfamiliar. 

With the Bruins on the power play late in the third period of Game 3 against the Capitals, Lucic was cross-checked by Washington defenseman Dennis Wideman. That led to Lucic scrapping with forward Matt Hendricks before defenseman Karl Alzner jumped in to take on Lucic. After the scrum was broken up by officials, Alzner made a crying gesture at Lucic.

"Well, there's a lot of [proof] on my side to show that I'm not a crybaby," Lucic said after the game. "That's a lot coming from a guy I think who's got two roughing penalties in three years, so there you go. 

Asked whether he felt Alzner was the third man in, an offense that is punishable by a game misconduct, Lucic grinned and chose his words carefully before answering, "Yup."

Backstrom faces suspension for penalty

At the end of Boston's 4-3 win over the Capitals that gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead in their best-of-7 Eastern quarterfinal series, Capitals star Nicklas Backstrom was given a 10-minute match penalty, which carries with it an automatic one-game suspension, pending league review. 

In the closing moments, Alex Ovechkin took a run Rich Peverley along the corner boards in the Washington zone and hit him into the boards. Moments later in the same scrum, Backstrom, who scored the game-winner in double overtime on Saturday, was cited for cross-checking Peverley in the face and given a match penalty. The series, which had been relatively mellow so far, turned nasty with several altercations involving Milan Lucic in the second and third periods and Brad Marchand in the third. Lucic and Brooks Laich were given unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the second while Lucic and Matt Hendricks were called for roughing at 17:34 of the third.

Dirty work: Chara slapper beats Caps

Zdeno Chara's slap shot with 1:53 left in regulation beat Braden Holtby and lifted the Bruins to a thrilling 4-3 win over the Capitals in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at the Verizon Center Monday night. The Bruins lead the series, 2-1, with Game 4 Thursday night in Washington before the series shifts back to Boston for Game 5 in Boston. 

A fairly mild series in the first two games, the Bruins and Captials joined the Flyers and Penguins and the Rangers and Senators in turning up the intensity with on-ice brawls. It was an on-ice confrontation between Milan Lucic and Washington's Matt Hendricks and Karl Alzner that led to a 4-on-4 situation when Chara took a pass from Dennis Seidenberg and fired the game-winning goal, which deflected off the stick of Roman Hamrlik.

The Bruins fell behind when Alexander Semin fired a shot from the high slot that made its way through a screen and past Tim Thomas for a power play goal with...
