Blackhawks Fall at Detroit, Down 2-1

In the NHL Playoffs Detroit has a 2-1 lead over Chicago, winning last night at home 3-1. The Blackhawks are two more losses from having dreams of a Stanley Cup vanish, the offense will be to blame; suddenly silent.

New York Rangers actually are below .500 after falling twice to Boston and playing at home tonight is “a must win situation.”  San Jose was in danger of going down 3-0 against the visiting Kings, winning Game-3 in overtime 2-1. The same kind of low scoring affair is expected tonight.  Pittsburgh, trailing Ottawa 2-1, faces the Senators again on the road tomorrow night.

Pacers-Spurs Due for Closer Contest than Opening Rout

There were no games scheduled last night in the NBA and pro basketball is biding its time until the Spurs and Heat decide the NBA championship. Miami has been the team to beat since the start of the year and has lost just once in the post-season, a first round home opener against the Bulls.

San Antonio expects to handle Indiana again in what most expect will be closer than the first Western Conference contest that saw reserves play the final five minutes as San Antonio won 105-83.  In their last five meetings, the Spurs are 5-0 but only twice has the winning margin been double figures.  The Pacers lost the remaining three games by a combined total of just eight points.
