Ravens wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Rams cornerback Aqib Talib aren’t scheduled to face each other in the regular season, but they will have a chance to catch up with one another over the summer.
According to multiple reports, the Ravens and Rams have agreed to hold joint practices this summer before they play a preseason game in Baltimore on August 9. It will be the first preseason game for the Rams while the Ravens will be playing in the Hall of Fame Game against the Bears in the league’s first exhibition game of the summer.
The Bruins’ power play -5 for 10 in the first two games — got its first opportunity early in the third only to see Pastrnak hit the post.
The Maple Leafs sealed it with 3:35 left when Marleau scored his second of the night on a 2-on-1 rush for his 70th career playoff goal.
We were on it all game, Marleau said. We had our legs, we were playing the right way.
It just kind of never happened, Gettleman said. There was nothing ever meaningful enough that would keep me from a player that was our first take. You can out-smart yourself. In Carolina, nobody ever made us a meaningful enough offer to trade back.
Here is what three longtime NFL executives with extensive scouting experience, including one ex-general manager, said the Giants should do about fielding trade-down offers.
Beal deflected any excuses for his Game 2 performance, which certainly got off to a bad start after he picked up his second personal foul with 3:59 remaining in the first quarter. Wall already had been whistled for his second foul with 7:42 left in the first quarter, when the Wizards were down by 11. Without those two All-Stars, Washington would fall behind 37-15 before entering the second quarter trailing 44-27.
Not really, Beal said when asked if averaging the most minutes of his career and carrying more responsibility with Wall out has caught up to him. I mean John’s back, so it would be totally different if he wasn’t, then it would be a different story. Even if he wasn’t, I still wouldn’t make an excuse for it.
Everybody has played 82 games this year, that is how many you are supposed to play; but at the same time, it does wear on you, you do get tired. But it’s a mental thing, that is not an excuse for me.
