• Sabres 5 Rangers 4: In the end they just didn’t have enough to win. That’s not an indictment of the Rangers, far from it since Buffalo is the best team in the league, just the reality.

    They gave their all on Sunday, but couldn’t come up with an answer to the Sabres’ speed. Now they face a huge offseason. They are close to being in the elite of the NHL and with some minor tweaks, they should be contending for the cup next year.

  • Cleveland 81 Nets 77: New Jersey fought hard, but could not overcome a fourth quarter slump and dropped game one.

  • Yankees 5 Seattle 0: The big story may be the return of the rocket, but the important thing is that the Yankees got a quality start for the second day in a row. Darrell Rasner wasn’t perfect, but he was very good and the Yankees scored when needed.
  • Arizona 3 Mets 1: Mike Pelfry was ok, but Livan Hernandez was better shutting down the Mets’ offense over seven innings.
