The Canadiens won't be able to manage 58 shots in Game 3 in NY, so that should lead to fewer goals, as Lundqvist is still playing quite well.

In this "Last time they met" series, we're going to look at the current National Basketball Association playoff matchups and review the last time these two teams met in the playoffs. A Toronto win could give them some added confidence heading into the postseason, but I still like the Cavs at home. "My cousin drove me to Applebee's last night", he said.
The Cavs , who went 10-14 over March and April and ended the regular season on a four-game losing streak, are wiping the slate clean as they enter the postseason. "We had some key injuries that set us back, but for the most part, it's pretty much the same". A third straight NBA Finals matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers is still considered the most likely outcome according to the sportsbooks.
The series starts with that first game on ESPN at 5:30 PM Eastern. Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been led by DeMar DeRozan who had a great season with averages of 27.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game while Kyle Lowry was averaging 22.4 points and 7.0 assists per game before his injury late in the season kept him to just 60 games on the season.
Leicester thought they had a tough night tonight, it will be a lot tougher next week. And you would be foolish ever to write off Leicester after last season's title fairytale, even if overcoming Atletico would surely represent their biggest scalp to date.
That pressure might change on Saturday, knowing what the Senators now know: with a bit more pressure, they could have been the ones to exit on top. It was the first time the Senators had held an opponent without a shot in an entire period in their history, and the first time the Bruins went shot-less for an entire period in a playoff game since 1939.
Westbrook might be an incrementally better offensive player than Leonard but he's not almost as efficient, while the Spurs star is miles ahead of Russell defensively. Harden did the unexpected. Harden is having an unbelievable season for Mike Dantoni and the Rockets, but when that offense is clicking, the point guard should put up wonderful stats.
After Round 1 on Thursday, it didn't look promising for American golf phenom Jordan Spieth to win his second Green Jacket in three tries. "I'm certainly looking for my first Masters and my first green jacket". "I certainly know anything can happen on Sunday", said Spieth , referring to his collapse previous year. This was the first major playoff for Rose while Garcia had lost his only prior major playoff to Ireland's Padraig Harrington in the 2007 Open.
Griezmann was the standout performer and almost added an assist to the only goal but Angel Correa couldn't quite stretch to reach his risky low cross 17 minutes from time . "We're kind of thriving at the minute", Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater said. "It was definitely a foul, but it was outside the box". In the home game the Spanish team was unable to score, but she did not miss.
Will it be Rose or Garcia take home the Green Jacket? This was the first major playoff for Rose while Garcia had lost his only prior major playoff to Ireland's Padraig Harrington in the 2007 Open. "There's nothing that says I'm going to play bad or that I should play bad". Then chipping and putting kind of went sideways on me.

When asked about the Grand Slam, Garcia said , "You can't win them all if you don't win the first one". "It's a great time in my life". I felt cool, calm and collected. "But, at the same time, it is all a learning process". I just want to win here. "Just go out there and have fun, simple as that". Sergio Garcia has been through the mill, but his playoff triumph over Justin Rose to clinch the Masters on Sunday released a torrent of relief and 18 years of pent-up angst.
One could easily make an argument that Kevin Durant deserves to be higher on this list than Thomas. Skal Labissiere played an awesome game scoring 32 points and chipping in 11 rebounds and 2 steals . He's also averaging 1.5 steals per game while going to the foul line more than anyone else in the league - almost 11 times per game. The 28-year-old plays like a man who won't be denied, so it's fitting he's put together a tour de force season that makes it hard to deny him the MVP either.

AB went on one knee and nailed a slower ball over the cover fence and ended the innings with a six that cleared the roof for the 2nd time .

Two days earlier, the Bulldogs stunned four-time defending national champion CT - which was riding a 111-game winning streak that included multiple wins over Staley's teams.

Un-clutch could have been the best way to describe Justin Jackson's performance for much of the night. Williams-Goss paced the Bulldogs with 15 points despite missing 12 of his 17 attempts. The possession arrow gave the ball to the Tar Heels, but UNC's Kennedy Meeks had his hand out-of-bounds while holding the ball, so Gonzaga should have been given possession.
