St. Louis Blues Hockey Schedule

St. Louis Blues Hockey Schedule

Entering Game 6 of their second-round playoff matchup with the Dallas Stars on Monday, the St. Louis Blues find themselves in a situation similar to the one they were in during the first round against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Only this time, a loss at the Scottrade Center would send the series back to Dallas for a deciding Game 7 on Wednesday.

NHL Hockey: Monday, May 9, 2016 at 8:00 pm (Scottrade Center)

St. Louis is coming off a 4-1 road victory in Game 5 on Saturday behind a goal and an assist from rookie forward Robby Fabbri, who has been one of the keys to the series so far. When the 20-year-old Fabbri has notched a point against the Stars, the Blues have won. When he has not, they have lost.

The Stars have their backs against the wall heading into St. Louis on Monday as they spoiled a glorious opportunity on home ice on Saturday afternoon and now they have no room for error as they are in a win or go home mode for the next two games.

Dallas has a ton of offensive weapons but the absence of Tyler Seguin has certainly been felt and he is likely out for the remainder of this series and could be even longer if the Stars somehow play their way out of this one. Dallas has had a lot of difficulty keeping the puck of their net in this series as they have been woeful in the defensive zone and neither Kari Lehtonen nor Antii Niemi has played well enough to cease the starting job and both have been yanked from games in this series.

Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks Game 3

Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks Game 3

The Cleveland Cavaliers made 25 threes, on game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks, the most in NBA history for a game, playoff or regular-season.

The Cavaliers broke several long distance records during the contest. The Cavs made 18 3-pointers in the first half and added seven more after halftime to embarrass the Hawks, who have lost 10 straight postseason games to Cleveland.

It was inevitable that The Cavaliers would be making history on this night. It was just a matter of when. The postseason record was eclipsed after Kyrie Irving hit back-to-back threes with 5:06 remaining in the third quarter, giving his team 22. They went into the final quarter with that amount.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks meet Friday night for game 3 at the Phillips Arena.

The Cleveland Cavaliers can pretty much put this series to bed by winning here and taking a 3-0 lead. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 106.8 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 95.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting.

The Atlanta Hawks need a victory here in order to have any shot of getting back in this series. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 99.3 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 98.8 points on 40.2 percent shooting.

Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks 2016 NBA Playoffs

 Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks 2016 NBA Playoffs

 

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking for sixth straight playoffs win at tonight’s Game #2 against the Atlanta Hawks.

Atlanta Hawks (52-37) at Cleveland Cavaliers (62-25)
NBA Basketball: Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 8:00 pm (Quicken Loans Arena)The Line: Cleveland Cavaliers -7.5

The Cavaliers jumped out to a big lead in Game 1 and needed a late surge to hold off the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA Eastern Conference semifinal.

The Cleveland Cavs have not dominated opponents from beginning to end in most of their playoff games this year, but their finishing ability has been stronger than any team in the East so far.

The Atlanta Hawks found that out the hard way Monday in a 104-93 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 1 of their second-round NBA playoff series. The Cavs covered as a 7.5-point home favorite and is listed as seven-point chalk for Game 2.

Miami Heat (52-37) at Toronto Raptors (60-29)

NBA Basketball: Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 8:00 pm (Air Canada Centre)

The Toronto Raptors and the Miami Heat collide in Game 1 at the Air Canada Center on Tuesday.

The Heat looked down and out after falling behind by 3-2 in the first series against the Hornets, but they regrouped in time and got the job done in a dominant 106-73 Game 7 win to book them a ticket into the second round. Dwyane Wade led from the front with averages of 19.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game for the series, Hassan Whiteside averaged 13.1 points, 11.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game, while Goran Dragic averaged 14.1 points and 4.3 assists per game and had himself a game-high 25 points in Game 7 on Sunday. As a team, the Heat averaged 99.1 points per game while allowing just 90.3 points per game in the first round.

The Raptors will also be entering this series fresh off a Game 7 victory, beating the Pacers by 89-84 in a thriller on Sunday. DeMar DeRozan shot just 31.9 percent from the field for the seriers, but he came good when it really mattered as he led the team with 30 points on Sunday, but the same can’t be said for Kyle Lowry who averaged 13.9 points and 7.6 assists per game but shot just 31.6 percent for the series. Jonas Valanciunas found himself in foul trouble in almost every game of the series, but he still managed to put up solid averages of 13.6 points and 11.9 rebounds per game and he’ll be required to do the same when he’s matched up with the Heat’s Whiteside.

The Boston Red Sox have been clicking on all cylinders with the pitching and hitting both contributing to wins in eight of ten which has them atop the AL East. The Red Sox come off of a three game sweep of the Yankees following an 8-7 win on Sunday where the offense saved the day. Boston ace David Price gave up six runs on eight hits over seven frames which was good enough to get the win. The Red Sox amassed 14 hits and walked three times with  Travis Shaw and Christian Vasquez slamming two run jacks while Hanley Ramirez drove in two and scored. The Boston Red Sox send Steven Wright to the bump in search of his third straight victory. Wright defeated the Braves 9-4 last time out with two runs plated (one earned) on three hits and three BB in seven frames.

The Chicago White Sox showed some resiliency in Baltimore this past weekend to earn a split of their four game series after dropping the first two.  Overall the Pale Hose have won eight of ten after dominating the Orioles 7-1 on Sunday. White Sox starter Chris Sale was stingy as usual with the lone run allowed on five hits and four free passes through 5.1 innings while four relievers held Baltimore scoreless. The CWS attack consisted of 13 hits and six walks with Brett Lawrie going 3-3 with a solo homer while Jerry Sands knocked in two runs as every starter but one scored or drove in runs. Left hander Jose Quintana toes the rubber for the White Sox with his third straight shutout on his mind. Quintana is coming off of a 4-0 win at Toronto with six scoreless innings while striking out ten.

Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners

The Kansas City look to reverse their fortunes at Safeco against the Seattle Mariners.

The Kansas City Royals suffered an uncharacteristic sweep at the Angels capped off by a 4-2 loss on Wednesday. The Royals began well enough with a 2-0 first inning lead but the offense was held in check after that and the pitching needed more help. KC starter Chris Young gave up three runs on three hits including a pair of long balls over 5.1 frames to fall to 1-4. Kansas City mustered ten hits and walked three times with Eric Hosmer blasting a two run bomb that scored Mike Moustakas. Kansas City sends Kris Medlen to the hill to face the Mariners for the first time in his career. Medlen is coming off of an 8-3 loss to the Orioles where he was charged with seven runs on 9 hits and three BB in 3.2 innings.

The Seattle Mariners have been playing their best baseball of the season with both the arms and bats generally on the same page. The Mariners had won six of seven before falling to Houston by a 7-4 count on Wednesday. M’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma had a rare off night with five runs allowed on seven hits and two walks while whiffing seven through five innings to remain winless at 0-3. The Mariners totaled ten hits and walked three times with Robinson Cano going 2-5 with a homer and three RBI’s while Adam Lind was 2-4 with a solo blast. Felix Hernandez toes the rubber hoping for some support from the Mariners offense when he opposes the Royals on Friday. Hernandez took a 4-2 loss at the Angels last time out with three runs scored on five hits including two homers in seven frames.

Atlanta Hawks (51-36) at Boston Celtics (50-37)
NBA Basketball: Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 8:00 pm (TD Garden)
The Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics collide in Game 6 tonight at the TD Garden.

The Boston Celtics have lost all three of their away games to the Atlanta Hawks in their first-round playoff series and will try to return the favor by winning their third straight at home in Game 6 on Thursday.

Are you looking for the best Poker tips?, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

Despite the fact that the Celtics won Games 3 and 4 by a combined 17 points, they are still listed as two-point underdogs for Game 6 at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark after a 110-83 defeat in Game 5 at Atlanta.

The Celtics looked to have all of the momentum after levelling the series in Game 4, but the Celtics just couldn’t get it going at all in Game 5 and suffered a 110-83 defeat to the Hawks. Evan Turner scored 15 points while Jae Crowder, Jared Sullinger and Marcus Smart all chipped in with 10 points each, but what the Celtics desperately needed was one more big game from Isaiah Thomas who scored just seven points in the game before leaving with a mild ankle sprain. Initially it was thought that Thomas would miss this game but the word is that he will indeed suit up tonight for the Celtics in this must-win game.

The Hawks have covered the spread just twice in the series so far, with both times coming in easy double-digit wins at home. The latest came Tuesday, as they trailed Boston 20-15 at the end of the first quarter but outscored the team 74-42 over the second and third to take control.

The Hawks must have been a little worried after squandering their 2-0 series lead, but in the comfort of their own building they regrouped to put together one of their best shooting displays to blow away the Celtics in the second and third quarters where they outscored them by an amazing 74-42. Mike Scott led the scoring with 17 points off the bench while Kent Bazemore and Jeff Teague chipped in with 16 points each. Paul Millsap scored just 10 points after pouring in 45 in Game 4 while Al Horford finished with just six points, but neither player was required to play their usual minutes as this game was over before the fourth quarter.

J Niese (3-0) (4.24) vs. Jon Gray (0-0) (9.00)
The Line: Colorado Rockies +120 / Pittsburgh Pirates -130
The Pittsburgh Pirates look to exploit the confines of Coors Field on Wednesday as they continue their series with the Colorado Rockies.

The Pirates head into Wednesday night’s game looking to build some momentum after a pretty successful night at the dish last night as they send Jonathan Niese to the bump as he will take on Jonathan Gray who gets the call for Colorado. The Pirates are considered to be legitimate playoff threats in the NL Central this season and with the lineup they have and recent playoff pedigree it is clear to see why as they have some guys who can hit the cover off the ball and with Andrew McCutcheon heating up it is bad news for the rest of the National League.

The Rockies meanwhile are considered to be among the league’s worst and have some serious needs to address before they can be considered a playoff threat once again, and while they have a few nice pieces in the form of Nolan Arenado and Trvor Story they may have to stockpile some prospects with an unload at this year’s trade deadline, much like they did last year with Troy Tulowitzki. Colorado, as mentioned, will send Gray to the hill who hasn’t been factored into a decision yet and has an ERA of 9.00, while Niese is 3-0 with a 4.24 ERA and will look to keep it going against a Rockies side who has some power at the plate.

Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks

In what has become a competitive first-round playoff series in the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Hawks hope to use their home court to regain an edge against the Boston Celtics in Game 5 on Tuesday.

The Boston Celtics can take control of this series by winning their third straight game and taking a 3-2 lead. The Boston Celtics are averaging 97 points on 39.1 percent shooting and allowing 97.3 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Isaiah Thomas is averaging 28.3 points and 4.3 assists while Evan Turner is averaging 14 points and 5.5 rebounds. Jae Crowder is grabbing 7.5 rebounds and Marcus Smart is dishing 3.8 assists. The Boston Celtics are shooting 29.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.1 percent from the free throw line. The Celtics are allowing 27.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.3 rebounds per game. The Boston Celtics have lost five of their last seven road games. Kelly Olynyk is questionable with a shoulder injury.

Boston won Game 4 in overtime 104-95 on Sunday, covering the spread as a one-point home underdog and overcoming a monster 45-point performance from Atlanta power forward Paul Millsap, who connected on 19 of 31 shots from the field and also grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.

Are you looking for the best Poker tips?, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

 Atlanta is a bigger favorite in Game 5 than either Game 1 or Game 2 at Philips Arena, as the team has failed to cover the spread in three of the first four overall. The lone cover for the Hawks came in Game 2 when they won 89-72 as 6.5-point favorites on the NBA betting lines.

The Atlanta Hawks hope to continue the trend of the home team winning every game in this series. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 97.3 points on 40.1 percent shooting and allowing 97 points on 39.1 percent shooting. Paul Millsap is averaging 17.8 points and 9.3 rebounds while Jeff Teague is averaging 18 points and seven assists. Al Horford is grabbing 9.8 rebounds and Kent Bazemore is dishing two assists. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 27.6 percent from beyond the arc and 80 percent from the free throw line. The Hawks are allowing 29.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks have won six of their last seven home games.

Boston Red Sox (9-9) at Atlanta Braves (4-14)
MLB Baseball: Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7:10 pm (Turner Field)
R Porcello (3-0) (4.66) vs. J Teheran (0-2) (5.64)
The Line: Atlanta Braves +126 / Boston Red Sox -136

The Boston Red Sox look for a solid road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Red Sox seem to have found their offense as of late with 16 runs scored against the Astros and six or more runs scored in four of their last five games. The Boston Red Sox are 9-4 this season when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 25 hits, Mookie Betts has 14 RBI and David Ortiz has three home runs. Rick Porcello gets the nod, and he’s 3-0 with a 4.66 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Porcello is 1-1 with a 4.97 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.

No matter the situation, the Boston Red Sox fought back time and time again Sunday to pull out a 12-inning victory.

Despite a short outing by their starter, leaning on the bullpen for more than eight innings and a blown save in the ninth, the Red Sox never caved en route to a 7-5 victory against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

The Atlanta Braves are desperate for a victory after losing their last five games. The Braves simply can’t put runs on the board, as they’ve produced three or less in five straight games and 11 of their 18 games overall this season. The Atlanta Braves four victories this season have come when they’ve scored six or more runs. Nick Markakis leads Atlanta with 20 hits, Adonis Garcia has six RBI and Freddie Freeman has one home run. Julio Teheran takes the hill, and he’s 0-2 with a 5.64 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. This will be Teheran’s second career game against the Red Sox.

Pitching matchups for the Red Sox-Braves series in Atlanta:

Monday: RHP Rick Porcello (3-0, 4.66) vs. RHP Julio Teheran (0-2, 5.64), 7:10 p.m., NESN.
