Nigel Dawes and Markus Naslund wiped out a two-goal deficit in the closing minutes before Chris Drury scored the lone goal in the shootout for the New York Rangers to edge the Boston Bruins 3-2 in the NHL on Saturday.
The Rangers snapped the Bruins’ five-game winning streak.
It wasn’t in hand for the Rangers until a video review showed Patrice Bergeron’s shot in the last round hit the post and didn’t cross the line even though the red light flashed. Dawes’ attempt in the tiebreaker also faced a review to show that no-goal.
DEVILS 6, CAPITALS 5, SO
At Newark, New Jersey, Zach Parise scored the only goal in the shootout and Scott Clemmensen stopped all three Washington shooters to end New Jersey’s four-game losing streak and snap Washington’s five-game winning streak.

FLYERS 2, CANADIENS 1

The only man to beat Djokovic this year is Djokovic after the Serb’s hair-trigger temper prompted a sensational disqualification from the US Open. The 33-year-old arrives in the French capital with a 31-1 record this year after his New York brain-fade was followed by a record 36th Masters title in Rome. Djokovic’s 2016 triumph at Roland Garros allowed him to
Taiwan’s Jason Jung was knocked out of the first round of the French Open in straight sets on Sunday, while Andy Murray said it was going to be “difficult” for the former world No. 1 to reach his level of old after he also fell to a lopsided defeat by fellow three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka. Jung fell to a 7-5, 7-6 (8/6), 7-6 (7/3) defeat to Argentina’s Federico Coria in 3 hours, 19 minutes at Roland Garros, despite hitting 55 winners. Jung served for both the first and second sets, then failed to convert two set points at 5-4 in
Michael Schumacher’s son Mick said that the prospect of Lewis Hamilton equaling the Ferrari great’s all-time record of 91 wins has given him something to aim for when he gets to Formula One. Hamilton, who replaced Michael Schumacher at Mercedes in 2013, can take his 91st victory in today’s Russian Grand Prix in Sochi — a race he has won four times previously. “One sentence my dad always used to say was: ‘Records are there to be broken.’ It’s everybody’s aim in this sport to do that,” Formula Two championship leader Mick Schumacher said on Friday. “I think Lewis had a very, very
