The Philadelphia Phillies offense was dormant until the 6th inning when a Furcal error and the classic Derek Lowe meltdown rulted in HRs by Chase Utley (yes Phillies Fever Cowbell Remix was playing in Matty's home when Utley hit his HR) and Pat Burrell to give the Philles all they need to overcome Manny and the Dodgers in Game 1. The Phillies win 3 - 2. Remember today's game is at 4:30 p.m. on Fox.
All of New England GASPED when Mike Timlin was added to the playoff roster(They must have thought he was closing). Game 1 tonight at or around 8 PM from The Trop in Tampa.
#21 Wake Forest outduels the Clemson Tigers 12 - 7.
The NHL Season opened up on North American soil last night, as the Detroit Red Wings hoisted the Stanley Cup banner. The Toronto Maple Leafs had ideas of crashing the party and did so as Nikolai Kulemin scored at the 7:25 mark of the 3rd period to give the Leafs a 2 goal lead and the game winner. Toronto won 3 - 2.
The Boston Bruins won their opener against the Colorado Avalance 5 - 4. Tim Thomas has 35 save, standing on his head at times making huge stop after huge stop, none bigger than a flurry with 10 seconds left in the game.
Joe Thornton and his San Jose Sharks got off to a strong start, beating up on the rival Anaheim Ducks 4 - 1.
The Vancouver Canucks used an emotional tribute of Luc Bourdon, who was killed in a motorcycle accident in New Brunswick in May, to extinguish the Calgary Flames 6 - 0.
