The Boston Bruins are on the brink of the NHL's Eastern Conference final, and they got there on the backs of their suddenly offensive defencemen and a potent fourth line of forwards.
They have outclassed the New York Rangers all over the ice in surging to a 3-0 lead in a series that could be over Thursday.
If the Bruins start firing on all cylinders, the Rangers will have little hope of even forcing a Game 5 let alone entertaining thoughts of matching the greatest comeback in sports.
Sergio Garcia has said sorry after being at the centre of a race storm following an insulting comment about Tiger Woods at the European Tour Player of the Year awards.
The Spaniard was on stage with the rest of his Ryder Cup team-mates when he was light-heartedly asked by the evening’s host, American Steve Sands, if he would be inviting Woods — with whom Garcia has had a long-running feud — for dinner at next month’s US Open in Merion.
Garcia replied: ‘We’ll be having him round eve
(UPI) -- Wilin Rosario's walk-off single in the 10th inning lifted the Colorado Rockies to a 5-4 win over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday.
Rosario, who had two hits in the game, delivered the game-winner off Matt Reynolds (0-2) after Arizona gave up a one-out double to Carlos Gonzalez and then intentionally walked Troy Tulowitzki, who had smacked a solo home run earlier in the game.

(UPI) -- Brandon Belt went 4-for-4 with a solo homer and Ryan Vogelsong earned a win but was injured Monday in San Francisco's 8-0 rout of Washington.
Belt scored four times and his blast in the fifth inning handed a 6-0 lead to San Francisco, which opened a homestand by snapping a three-game skid.

Vogelsong (2-4) allowed just three hits over five shutout innings, walking one
(UPI) -- Patrick Corbin fired a complete-game three-hitter Monday and the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks cruised to a 5-1 victory over Colorado.
Corbin (7-0) turned in his ninth straight start of allowing two or fewer earned runs with the dominating performance while lowering his ERA to 1.44.
The left-hander allowed only one run and struck out 10 in the 97-pitch gem, which boosted the National League West-leading D-backs to a fifth win six games.

(UPI) -- David Murphy launched a go-ahead, three-run shot in the sixth inning Sunday and Texas overcame three Miguel Cabrera homers to outlast Detroit 11-8.

(UPI) -- Colin Greening scored 7:39 into the second overtime Sunday and Ottawa bounced back in its second-round playoff series with a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh.
The Senators, trailing 2-0 in the Western Conference semifinal series, seemed destined to fall again, trailing 1-0 with less than a minute remaining in regulation and Pittsburgh on a power play.
Ottawa Coach Paul MacLean then pulled goalie Craig Anderson to add an attacker for a 5-on-5 situation, and the move paid off.
(UPI) -- Marvin Chavez popped in a goal in the 78th minute Saturday, drawing the San Jose Earthquake into a 1-1 draw with Colorado.
Chavez, who was playing after the MLS upheld his appeal of a two-game suspension, scored the equalizer on a free kick that cleanly beat Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin.
San Jose (3-4-6) extended its home unbeaten streak to seven games with the result.
Nathan Sturgis tallied in the 26th minute for the Rapids (4-4-4).

The Sharks started overtime with a 5-on-3 advantage thanks to penalties late in regulation handed out to Robin Regehr and Trevor Lewis.
Regehr had just gotten back on the ice when Patrick Marleau corralled Joe Thornton's feed behind the net and sent a touch-pass to Couture in the slot, who put a shot over the left arm of Jonatha
