Pens top Wings and talent rules in the NBA

Breathing again

The Penguins are happy to be home. Maxime Talbot scores two goals as Pittsburgh tops Detroit 4-2 to trim the Finals lead to 2-1. Crosby and Co. catch the right breaks and avoid a huge hole, Wes Goldstein says.

Saga coaches?

The role of an NBA head coach is to get outta the way, Gregg Doyel says. 'Get outta here,' is the response from Ken Berger, who says the men with clipboards are vital, and this year's Finals will be no exception.

Numbers don't lie

Of football's 22 positions, four are most vital. Find somebody to throw the ball, protect him, pressure the other team's quarterback and knock down his passes, and you have Pete Prisco's formula for success. Full story

Final tasks

The Lakers are back in the Western finals once again. Will home court be enough to nip the Nuggets? In the East, LeBron's Cavaliers are hungry for a title but first they must stop the Magic. Previews: LAL-DEN | CLE-ORL

Good grief

Nobody comes out clean this postseason, Ray Ratto says, excluding the Cavaliers and Nuggets. Oh, and the story that players need some time in college to develop for the pro game? Pure garbage, blogs Gary Parrish.

Nuggets advance and the Braves get a great arm

Capital collapse

Sidney moves on. Alex does not. Crosby marches his Penguins into D.C. and humiliates Ovechkin's Capitals 6-2 in Game 7. Wes Goldstein says it was such a one-sided affair, they should have invoked the mercy rule.

Special kind of Jair

Jair Jurrjens is used to being overlooked. It's always been the same story for the 23-year-old right-hander. But there's plenty of evidence proving that the Braves' 'best pitcher' is no fluke, Danny Knobler says. Column

Lakers drop Game 1 and Ovechkin lifts Capitals

The rust of the story

Remain calm. All is well. The Lakers sleepwalk through Game 1 and lose to the Rockets 100-92, but they're not fretting. In fact, they seem to relish this challenge after coasting for six months, Ramona Shelburne says.

Cap trick

The Alexander Ovechkin-Sidney Crosby duel is not disappointing. Both stars tally hat tricks in Game 2, but it is Ovechkin's Capitals who prevail 4-3. Crosby does his part, but he needs help, Wes Goldstein says.

On point

Orlando nearly blows a 28-point lead to Boston but the Magic hold off the Celtics 95-90 in Game 1 of their series. The key to advancing rests on the decision making of Rafer Alston and Rajon Rondo, Ken Berger says.
