On the surface George Kittle Jersey , they’re relatively indistinguishable. One was the defensive player of the year in 2016, the other won the award in 2017.
Both arrived via round one of the 2014 draft. Both are entering the fifth year of their rookie contracts.
Neither has gotten the long-term deal he deserves.
But there’s a difference between Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, when it comes to a potential training-camp holdout.
Last year, Mack showed up. Donald didn’t. And Donald’s holdout kept him from getting a fourth year of credit toward free agency. Which means that, if he does it again (specifically, if he holds out and doesn’t show up at least 30 days before the start of the regular season), he’ll still be stuck on three accrued seasons — and he wouldn’t be eligible for unrestricted free agency next year.
That means he wouldn’t necessarily receive the franchise tag in 2019. While the Rams could still use it if they want, the Rams could instead tender him at the highest restricted free agency level, which would give the Rams the right to match an offer sheet from another team and first-round compensation if they don’t.
Donald may welcome that William Gholston Jersey , since someone would surely make a run at him if the compensation is only a first-round pick. And if in the end the Rams realize that the safest course would be application of the exclusive franchise tag despite Donald having only three accrued years (even with the non-exclusive franchise tag, another team may happily surrender two first-round picks), Donald would be in the same place he would have been even if he shows up.
The only downside for Donald comes from a possible injury that would impair his market value and potentially prompt the Rams to roll the dice with the RFA tender, securing his rights for 2019 by putting millions less on the table. That dynamic would/could (should) make Donald more likely to carry a holdout deep into the regular season, in order to ensure that, come 2019, he’ll be getting the exclusive franchise tender.
By rule, he can show up as late as the Tuesday after Week 10 and get credit for the contract year. While few players ever do that, the sheer volume of disgruntled players in 2018 raises the odds that one of them will.
The Pittsburgh Penguins could lug a briefcase full of grudges into Game 3 of their second-round playoff series Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals at PPG Paints Arena.
They swear they won’t do that.
The Capitals won 4-1 Sunday in Game 2 to give the teams a split of the first two games in Washington.
In that game P. J. Williams Jersey , the Penguins thought a Capitals goal could have been waved off because of what they thought was interference by Brett Connolly on Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray; thought they should have been awarded a goal after a review; and were upset about a hit by Tom Wilson to the head of Pittsburgh’s Brian Dumoulin that knocked the defenseman out of the game and into the NHL’s concussion protocol.
By the end of practice Monday, the Penguins were ready to push ahead.
“It doesn’t do us any good moving forward,” Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said of holding onto the anger. “That’s the motivation to move on. We did some good things, especially in the second and third (periods) and we’ll build off of that, but worrying about the other stuff isn’t going to help us. We have a lot of good things to take away from that game.”
Dumoulin practiced Monday and is considered a game-time decision in terms of Tuesday’s lineup. He declined to comment on the fact that there was no penalty in the game for the hit and will be no supplemental punishment from the NHL, which did not set a hearing for Wilson.
“The league is a neutral party,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said when asked about Wilson’s hit before the Capitals flew to Pittsburgh on Monday.
“They look at it. Each organization, each fan base will have their own opinions. That’s why there’s a neutral party in this.”
Trotz pronounced his club healthy and ready to dress the same lineup for Game 3.
Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said Dumoulin and two other prominent players are game-time decisions: center Evgeni Malkin, who was close to returning Sunday from a lower-body injury he suffered in Game 5 in the first round Joe Berger Jersey , and winger Carl Hagelin, who sustained a facial injury in Game 6 of the first round. Both practiced Monday, Hagelin with full face and jaw protection.
Regardless of those players’ status, the Capitals are wary of Pittsburgh despite their win Sunday. In Game 1, the Penguins overcame a two-goal deficit with three quick goals in the third period for a 3-2 win.
“We know what they’re about, and we know that they’ve got guys that can hurt you,” Connolly said. “In Game 1, that was tough. We played a really good game, I think Doug Martin Jersey , and they just kind of found a way to get some breaks and score some timely goals. I think we learned from that (in Game 2). We weren’t as loose; I think we were a little more solid as the game went on.”
Trotz hopes that carries over.
“You can never take your foot off the gas,” he said.
Washington dominated play early and scored first in both games. The Capitals have potted the first goal in seven of their eight postseason games and are outscoring opponents 10-2 in the first period.
Pittsburgh is bracing for a similar onslaught but hopes to match or top it this time.
“You expect them to come out hard. That’s pretty standard,” Crosby said. “You have to find a way to either counter that or weather it. The first two games, we gave up a goal pretty early to give them some momentum. I think we just need to make sure that we’re on our toes, and that we have that mentality of playing with that same desperation.”

Germain Ifedi was back with the first unit in training camp Monday Brooks Reed Jersey , two days after Seattle coach Pete Carroll yanked the starting right tackle from the lineup during the Seahawks' scrimmage.
The embattled offensive lineman is hoping to keep his starting spot, but didn't help his cause in Saturday's scrimmage when he was flagged for a false start and a holding penalty. Carroll had seen enough.
"Yeah, I was real disappointed in that," Carroll said. "Real disappointed."
Penalties plagued Ifedi last season when he was flagged 20 times Jahleel Addae Jersey , the most penalties for any player in the NFL. New offensive line coach Mike Solari had a long conversation with Ifedi on the sidelines after he was pulled from the scrimmage.
"We want Germain to be disciplined," Solari said Monday. "It was unacceptable. Just unacceptable and he knows it. We want to give him immediate feedback. It's just concentration."
Ifedi was a first-round draft choice out of Texas A&M in 2016, but has yet to live up to the lofty expectations. The offensive line overall struggled most of the 2017 season, but Ifedi received most of the ire from the fans for his inconsistent play.
Ifedi knows his must eliminate the same mistakes that resurfaced Saturday.
"It was a learning experience Anthony Sherman Jersey ," Ifedi said. "We know that pre-snap penalties are unacceptable. It's a lesson. You take the good things you did and move on."
Ifedi said Solari told him he has to stay calm in every situation and that composure will be key.
"Coach saw something on the field and he thought it was a good time to take me out and let me cool off. I was fine with it," Ifedi said.
Ifedi was replaced by Isaiah Battle in the scrimmage. Battle is a fourth-year player from Clemson who was acquired in a trade with Kansas City last season. The Seahawks could also opt to move George Fant to right tackle. Fant missed all last season after suffering a major knee injury in the preseason and is backing up Duane Brown at left tackle.
Solari said last week that the best five players will start on the offensive line. He told Ifedi what he expects of him if Ifedi hopes to remain the starter.
"Germain's a good football. He's working on his technique. For a coach, it's never quick enough, but we are demanding that he do it right Earl Thomas III Jersey ," Solari said.
Solari is expected to use more man-on-man blocking and less of the zone-blocking concept that predecessor Tom Cable employed. The Seahawks want to return to being more of the power-running team they were with Marshawn Lynch.
The Seahawks signed veteran guard D.J. Fluker to improve their run blocking. The other expected starters are Brown, second-year player Ethan Pocic at left guard and Justin Britt at center. Seattle also signed veteran guard J.R. Sweezy last week. Sweezy began his career with the Seahawks in 2012 and started on the Super Bowls teams in the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
The unit's first test will come Thursday night when Seattle opens the preseason against Indianapolis. And there will be plenty of attention on Ifedi.
"It's a big week for me with a new coach," Ifedi said. "Mike is a great coach and you can tell he really cares about us. There's pressure every year to get better and step up your game. You have to constantly evolve."

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler has been suspended without pay for the season opener against the New York Giants for attacking a man in a parking lot a year ago.
Fowler was arrested last July after confronting a man who made a comment about his driving in a parking lot. Authorities say Fowler exchanged words with the man before hitting him. Police say the man’s glasses were knocked off and Fowler stepped on them before taking a grocery bag from the man and tossing it in a lake.
Fowler pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery Matt Haack Jersey , criminal mischief and petty theft. He was sentenced in March to a year of probation and 75 hours of community service.
Fowler played for Florida and was the Jaguars’ first-round draft pick in 2015. The NFL said Friday he is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
President Donald Trump on Monday praised two African-American athletes after they recently defended him in public.
Trump's public praise comes amid his continued disapproval of NFL players, most of them African-American, who kneel during the national anthem to protest police treatment of black men. It also follows his recent criticism of NBA star LeBron James.
Tiger Woods, a friend and sometime golf partner of Trump, called Sunday for respect for the office of the president.
Asked how he'd respond to people who are intrigued by his "friendly relationship" with Trump Alex Cappa Jersey , Woods told reporters: "He's the president of the United States and you have to respect the office. And no matter who's in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office."
Trump responded Monday by praising Woods and criticizing journalists. "The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn't want to say. Tiger wouldn't play the game - he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!" Trump said on Twitter.
The president also expressed gratitude to former NFL player Jim Brown Ted Ginn Jr Jersey , who defended Trump after the Hall of Famer was asked if he is concerned with the message coming from the White House against the league.
"I should be criticizing Trump on every level because he does certain things that call for criticism. But when I look at television and I see all of these announcers become experts and they're pointing their fingers, and they're not doing a doggone thing but pointing their fingers, I find myself really pulling for the president," Brown said last week during an appearance on "The JT The Brick Show" on Fox Sports Radio.
Brown acknowledged that his comment "will make me very unpopular in the black community, very unpopular with a lot of Americans. But I think there are certain good things that are coming out of this presidency because we've never seen anything like it."
Trump tweeted Monday: "Thank you to the great @JimBrownNFL32 Tom Brady Jersey , perhaps the greatest running back of all time, for your wonderful words and support. Since our meeting in New York, African-American UNEMPLOYMENT has reached the LOWEST LEVEL IN HISTORY. You get it!"
The connection between Brown and African-American unemployment was unclear. And, while black unemployment did hit a record low of 5.9 percent in May, the rate has since risen to 6.6 percent in July.
Trump and Brown met in New York after the 2016 presidential election.

P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst wasted little time providing the inside pass rush that Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden wanted when he used two draft picks on the defensive tackles.
Hall delivered on his first snap as a pro Lawrence Guy Jersey , bringing down Detroit's Matt Cassel in the exhibition opener. Hurst got pressure twice with one of those leading to Hall deflecting a pass by Cassel.
That's an ingredient that has been sorely missing in Oakland for years and will go a long way toward upgrading a defense that hopes to be much improved in the first year under Gruden and coordinator Paul Guenther.
"I was pleased with it," Gruden said Monday. "I think it's an area that we've gone out to try to improve and we have a long way to go. But, there were some good signs."
The Raiders drafted Hall in the second round after he recorded 42 sacks in his college career at FCS-level Sam Houston State. Oakland then was able to add another potential impact rusher in the fifth round when Hurst fell from a projected first-round pick because of a heart issue that led him to be sent home from the combine.
Hurst was one of the most productive defensive players in the country last season at Michigan. He had 5陆 sacks as an interior rusher and led all nose tackles and defensive tackles with 49 total quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.
Hurst has had no health issues since being drafted and delivered just what the Raiders expected.
"He's going to continue to get better," Gruden said. "I think going up against (Kelechi) Osemele and Gabe Jackson and (Rodney) Hudson all camp has made him better. It's made him stronger. It's made him play with better technique and leverage. He still has a ways to go but he and P.J. Hall both give us an element that we need here."
The Raiders have the second-fewest sacks in the NFL the past two seasons with just 56 鈥?one more than the last-place New York Jets. Nearly two-thirds of those sacks have come from Khalil Mack (21 1/2) and Bruce Irvin (15) Terence Newman Jersey , as the edge players have gotten almost no help from the inside rushers.
Oakland had just 1 1/2 sacks last year from players playing inside full-time, making the performance in the preseason opener so encouraging.
Hall's sack came on the opening drive when Cassel was forced to step up in the pocket because of outside pressure by Irvin and Fadol Brown. Hall figures more of those opportunities will come, especially once Mack ends his holdout and rejoins the team.
"I definitely feel that will help a lot," he said. "He's a great edge rusher. He will make the quarterbacks step up in the pocket so I need to make sure I get a good interior rush."
The interior rush is a key part of Guenther's defense. He had one of the best in the game at it during his time in Cincinnati when Geno Atkins anchored the Bengals defense.
Hurst said he has tried to model his game after Atkins and embraces the challenge of trying to fill that role in Oakland.
"Definitely gets me amped up," he said. "The Bengals Kam Chancellor Jersey , their best player was their 3-technique, so that's the focal point of their defense and that's what Coach Guenther is used to getting. That's what he's got his whole time in the NFL. He drafted Geno, so I think it says something to him for drafting me and P.J. I think he definitely expects a lot from us and expects us to fill that role that he had while he was with the Bengals."
NOTES: CB Gareon Conley returned to practice for the first time since injuring his hip on the first day of training camp. ... CB Daryl Worley left practice after colliding with teammate Rashaan Melvin.
Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice for Game 5 of Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Bergeron missed the Bruins’ 3-1 Game 4 victory Thursday with an undisclosed injury. The Bruins lead the series 3-1 lead and can advance with a victory. If Toronto wins, Game 6 is Monday at Air Canada Centre.
Bergeron participated in the morning skate at Warrior Ice Arena and said he was optimistic, but had to sell it to the medical staff. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy thought Bergeron ”looked good” during the skate.
After totaling 30 goals and 33 assists during the season Nick Vannett Jersey , Bergeron had five assists in the first three games of this series. Bergeron is impressed with how his team played during his absence.
”It speaks a lot to both the depth that we have and guys always find a way to step up,” he said. ”It’s something we’ve been through many times this year, so I was definitely confident. But, at the same time, you’re always a lot nervous when you’re not playing.”

Andrew Weibrecht’s wait for another top-three result in a super-G reached the two-year mark on Friday.
But struggling with persistent knee problems and finishing 24th in the last World Cup race before the Pyeongchang Olympics haven’t dashed the American’s hopes for the games.
The racer nicknamed ”The Warhorse” has twice before won a medal in an Olympic super-G after less than impressive results on the World Cup circuit.
Weibrecht was yet to score a notable result in the World Cup when he took bronze at the Vancouver Games in 2010. And he had just one top-10 finish to his account when he sped to silver and could call himself a two-time Olympic medalist in Sochi four years later.
So can he turn the tide once again and finally get a podium again in South Korea next month?
”I think it’s possible Terence Newman Jersey ,” Weibrecht told The Associated Press. ”Especially if I take the downhills off to preserve my knee. That gives me a lot of time to get good training.”
The Lake Placid, New York native, who turns 32 five days before the Feb. 15 Olympic super-G, had his best spell in the two years following the Sochi Games.
He racked up nine top-10 results in World Cup speed races, including a third place in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in December 2015 and his career-best second place at Kitzbuehel the following month.
But 12th place in a race in Santa Caterina Kyle Rudolph Jersey , Italy, last season has been his best result in 11 super-G races since March 2016.
”It’s been a little bit of a struggle,” Weibrecht said about his season so far. ”My knee has been tough so I’ve not been able to train as much as I would have liked. I am just taking it one race at a time.”
Placing 24th and trailing winner Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway by 2.38 seconds upon his return to the Austrian resort on Friday didn’t do his performance justice, Weibrecht said.
”I feel like I am skiing well, like there’s definitely good parts. I am just not really putting runs together,” he said. ”I felt like I skied pretty decently, I just got out of the track on the flats and the snow is so slow and sticky that it’s kind of game over.”
After the race Deion Sanders Jersey , Weibrecht sat together with the U.S. men’s ski team’s head coach, Sasha Rearick, to compile a two-week schedule which should give him the best possible preparation ahead of the Olympics.
That schedule is totally focusing on super-G, and means Weibrecht will be skipping Saturday’s downhill on the Streif, just as he sat out another classic downhill race in Switzerland last week.
”We just skipped Wengen to focus on super-G here,” Rearick said. ”It didn’t quite go as well as we hoped. But he is in good spirits to fight on.”
Rearick, who was also in charge of the American team at the last two Olympics Mike Williams Jersey , is not worried about Weibrecht’s recent lack of results.
”We have been through this with Andrew over the past nine years a few times,” the coach said. ”These big waves, the waves are not short with Andrew, they are kind of long. We have managed to have fun at the Olympic Games with him. Even when he’s been at the bottom of the wave.”
Rearick said there are ”no expectations he can do it a third time,” but immediately added the question: ”Why not?”
”There is nothing to lose in the Olympic Games,” he said. ”It’s just to go out and express yourself and have fun going down the mountain. And Andrew’s done that well over the years.”
Thanks to Qatar, hockey fans in the U.S. capital get an extra hour of subway service on the night of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning.
It costs $100 William Gholston Jersey ,000 to keep the Metrorail system open for an additional 60 minutes past midnight. Metro eliminated late-night operating hours because of budget constraints.
Hours before the scheduled start of Thursday’s game, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted that Qatar and the Downtown D.C. Business Improvement District are ”doing it again to deliver late night Metro service to Caps fans.”
The Qatar Embassy also touted the arrangement, saying via Twitter: ”We believe in bringing communities closer together through sports.”
Qatar has mounted an aggressive and well-funded campaign to rehabilitate its image in the U.S. since President Donald Trump chided the country last year for funding terrorism. Qatar’s ruling emir visited the White House last month.
Jack Evans, the chairman of Metro’s board of directors and a D.C. Council member, said the Capitals declined to pay to keep the subway system open in the event of an overtime game.

The Chicago Bears have agreed to one-year contracts with punter Pat O'Donnell Chris Conte Jersey , tight end Daniel Brown and quarterback Tyler Bray.
A sixth-round draft pick by the Bears in 2014, O'Donnell is their all-time leader with a 44.9-yard career gross average. He averaged a franchise-record 47 yards per punt last season, with 27 of 87 inside the 20.
Brown has 29 catches for 253 yards since joining the Bears in October 2016. Bray figures to back up Mitchell Trubisky and newcomer Chase Daniel after spending five seasons in Kansas City. New Bears coach Matt Nagy was his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator with the Chiefs.
The Bears announced the moves Friday.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Still in bed when his girlfriend told him the Chicago Bears made a huge trade for two-time All-Pro Khalil Mack, left tackle Charles Leno Jr. didn’t quite believe it at first.
Once it sunk in, he ran down to the basement.
Leno turned on the camera Tyreek Hill Jersey , cranked up Mark Morrison’s “Return of the Mack” and started dancing. The video he posted on social media of himself pretty much sums up the mood around the Bears.
“We’re trying to win,” Leno said Monday. “We’re not settling to be last in the pack. We’re trying to win and win games here, change the culture of the organization.”
The Bears drove that point home Saturday with a blockbuster trade for one of the NFL’s best pass rushers. Chicago also made him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history with a six-year, $141 million extension that guarantees $90 million.
Mack practiced for the first time Monday after holding out the entire offseason and preseason trying to get a new deal with Oakland rather than play under the final year of his rookie contract.
Coach Matt Nagy said the Bears will monitor his conditioning this week before deciding whether he plays in the opener.
Chicago visits Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. And that primetime matchup sure has some added intrigue.
“I hope that everyone’s excited, our fan base is excited,” general manager Ryan Pace said. “I know our organization is excited.”
The trade for Mack finished off a busy offseason in which Chicago changed coaches and gave quarterback Mitchell Trubisky some new playmakers Caleb Sturgis Jersey , including former Jacksonville Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson.
Adding the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year to an already solid defense ratcheted up a building buzz around a team with four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North. Whether the Bears can leap to a playoff spot, they are at least in the conversation.
“There’s certain moves that are power moves and there’s certain moves that say ‘hey, we’re all in,'” defensive end Akiem Hicks said. “And I think that’s one of those moves.”
With 40½ sacks in four seasons, Mack figures to have a huge impact on a defense that ranked 10th overall last season.
Hicks had visions of “a lot more one on ones” with teams doubling up on the Bears’ new star pass rusher. And cornerback Prince Amukamara was seeing more opportunities for interceptions with quarterbacks under pressure.
“I would say the clock in the quarterback’s head is I’m sure going to be a lot shorter,” he said.
He also praised the front office for a “great job of due diligence.”
And guard Kyle Long said: “Our defense just got a lot tougher. And we get to practice against a tougher defense now Marshall Newhouse Jersey , and that’s going to be great for us.”
The trade also emphasizes just how serious management is about turning around a struggling franchise.
The Bears have just one playoff appearance since the 2006 team reached the Super Bowl, and the most recent time they had a winning record was in 2012. Chicago fired coach Lovie Smith after that season, replaced him with Marc Trestman and went 8-8 the following year.
Since then, it’s been nothing but last-place finishes in the division and frustration for the fan base. But the past few days?
“It’s been very exciting,” Nagy said. “Probably the time I think about it the most is when I’m in my car, driving home. That’s really when you can just get away from everybody and everything and you can just kinda sit back and realize where you’re at. Collectively Evan Engram Jersey , it’s everybody. It’s an exciting situation for us as a team, as a city, as an organization.”
NOTES: Nagy said there’s a “good chance” LG Eric Kush starts over James Daniels against Green Bay. … Nagy expects OLB Leonard Floyd — who practiced Monday with a club on his broken right hand — to play in the opener. Floyd broke his hand at Denver on Aug. 18. “I feel good that he’ll be playing,” Nagy said. … QB Tyler Bray and WR Tanner Gentry were among the 10 players signed to the practice squad. Both were let go by Chicago on Saturday.

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed cornerback Terence Newman Alex Collins Jersey , bringing the NFL's oldest active defensive player back for a 16th season that will begin five days after he turns 40.
Newman, who has played the last three years with the Vikings, has 42 career interceptions to lead all active players in the league. With Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes the starters on the outside, Newman and Mackensie Alexander remain the primary options to play the slot in the nickel defense. The Vikings also drafted Mike Hughes out of Central Florida in the first round Thursday.
The Vikings exercised the fifth-year contract option on Waynes , too, on a busy Monday.
The NFL announced that practice squad wide receiver Cayleb Jones has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the performance-enhancing substances policy, the second Vikings player to do so this month. Backup linebacker Kentrell Brothers also got a four-game ban.
Finally, the Vikings signed 17 college free agents, including South Dakota State wide receiver Jake Wieneke, a Minnesota native.
Wieneke, who played at Maple Grove High School Trey Hendrickson Jersey , is the sixth Minnesotan on the roster, joining wide receivers Adam Thielen and Brandon Zylstra, guard Tom Compton, punt returner Marcus Sherels and fullback C.J. Ham.
George Parros is a busy man early in the Stanley Cup playoffs thanks to a rash of questionable hits around the NHL.
The vice president of player safety’s department suspended Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri three games for boarding Boston forward Tommy Wingels in what the league called a hit made in the name of retribution and Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty one game for an illegal check to the head on Vegas forward William Carrier.
With two suspensions, two misconduct ejections for boarding that resulted in injuries, plus Capitals winger Tom Wilson’s hit to the head that knocked Columbus center Alexander Wennberg out of the game, it has been a rough start to the playoffs – and there have only been eight games played. In 1,271 regular-season games, there were a total of 37 game misconducts and 22 suspensions.
The NHL has made a concerted effort to rid its game of fighting and questionable hits, wanting to keep skilled players on the ice and boost scoring. In the postseason, goals are usually harder to come by and the adrenaline of the moment brings hard hits that cross the line; a year ago John Randle Jersey , Penguins star Sidney Crosby missed a game with a concussion after a cross-check to the head from the Capitals’ Matt Niskanen.
Kadri was tossed from Toronto’s Game 1 loss at Boston for boarding Wingels, and Blue Jackets winger Josh Anderson was thrown out of their overtime victory at Washington for a hit from behind that injured Capitals defenseman Michal Kempny.
A game misconduct will likely suffice for Anderson, but Kadri wasn’t as fortunate and will miss Games 2, 3 and 4.
”I certainly wasn’t trying to hit him when he was down like that,” Kadri said after Thursday night’s game. ”Obviously, if he’s still standing up, I think there’s nothing wrong with that, but he ended up falling and reaching for the puck, and I’m not sure what happened after that.”
What happened was another Bruins goal on the ensuing power play that made it 5-1 in the first game between the bitter rivals. Down the East Coast, Wilson’s hit on Wennberg allowed the Blue Jackets to tie the score in a game they won in overtime. Wilson blamed himself for costing Washington Game 1 by taking a bad penalty at a critical moment.
”I’ve got to be better and maybe pass up on that hit,” Wilson said. ”We’ve got the lead there so maybe a big hit’s not needed. It’s the playoffs. Trying to finish your checks Willie Brown Jersey , and unfortunately I took a penalty.”
Wilson was suspended two preseason games for interference and then for the first four regular-season games for boarding but had cleaned up his game since. Part of that stemmed from meeting with Parros in Calgary in the fall and educating himself on what’s acceptable and what the NHL looks for.
”We had a meeting, me, him and Parros, and went over videos and just what they were looking at when he was being considered for suspensions and fines and other examples throughout the league,” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said.
Parros spent almost a decade as an NHL enforcer and finished his career with 159 fights and 1,127 penalty minutes. When he took over the league’s player safety department last September, he said he intended to crack down on ”non-hockey plays” that have nothing to do with affecting the course of the game.
Some of the hits may alter series because of the resulting injuries.
Carrier, Kempny, Wennberg and Wingels are all day-to-day with ”upper-body” injuries – the customarily vague description in the NHL – with their statuses legitimately uncertain moving forward. Columbus general manager Jermo Kekalainen called Wennberg ”doubtful” for Game 2 Sunday at Washington and considered it a ”dangerous hit” by Wilson that the league deemed wasn’t worthy of further punishment.
Doughty, a Norris Trophy contender and Los Angeles’ top defender, was suspended for Friday night’s Game 2 against Vegas for what the league called an avoidable hit to Carrier’s head. Kadri’s hit came after Wingels crushed Toronto forward Mitch Marner Trent Murphy Jersey , but the timing and force of the hit made it worse.
”The bottom line is, you always have to be disciplined at all times and emotions are a part of the game, but it’s got to be controlled,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said.
Kekalainen disagreed with officials giving Anderson a five-minute major and a game misconduct for his hit on Kempny, which was definitely a minor penalty but seemed less egregious than Wilson’s later. That didn’t stop Capitals coach Barry Trotz from voicing his displeasure with Anderson’s play.
”I thought there’s clearly numbers there,” Trotz said. ”Trying to get that out of the game.”

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is expressing sympathy for the families and friends of those killed at the office of the Capital Gazette Matt Bosher Jersey , which he called his ”hometown newspaper.”
Though born in Tennessee, Belichick was raised in Annapolis, where his father was an assistant football coach at the U.S. Naval Academy. Belichick graduated from Annapolis High School in 1970.
On Thursday, five employees of The Capital were killed by a gunman who broke into the building, opened fire and was subsequently arrested.
In a statement, Belichick says: ”For my entire life, The Capital has been my hometown newspaper. My family and I have enjoyed special relationships with many great people who have worked for the newspaper.
”My heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire Annapolis community for this terrible and senseless tragedy.”
The Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans did their best to protect their starters for the regular season Thomas Morstead Jersey , letting Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota lead the cheers from the sidelines.
Rookie Daniel Carlson kicked field goals of 39 and 22 yards, and Kyle Sloter added a 24-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter as the Vikings beat the Tennessee Titans 13-3 on Thursday night as the teams wrapped up the preseason.
"We're excited to get the preseason over with and start focusing on somebody else and game planning," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.
Titans three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker did not play a snap this preseason and said he's ready for the regular season. He then shared a quote from linebacker Brian Orakpo.
"The varsity is taking the field now," Walker said.
Carlson rebounded from missing a pair of 42-yarders wide left a week ago after beating out Kai Forbath for the job. Carlson connected from 39 yards late in the first half, tying it 3-3. He added a 22-yarder midway through the third quarter, giving the Vikings (3-1) a 6-3 lead.
The Titans finished first-year coach Mike Vrabel's first preseason winless, though he made clear protecting starters for the regular season mattered more than notching an exhibition victory. Vrabel said he feels much better about the health of his roster than two weeks ago, and that he focused on coaching the Titans who've worked hard for the team against the Vikings.
What does Vrabel know about the Titans after his first preseason?
"We'll find that out when we go to Miami Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey ," Vrabel said. "We'll really find out what kind of team we've got, how conditioned we are and how talented we are and what kind of coaches when we get done with Miami."
The starters who did play were the kickers, and the Titans kept Pro Bowl punter Brett Kern very busy. He punted five times before his backup took over.
In the battle of the backups, the Titans dominated the first quarter, outgaining Minnesota 77-8 and holding the ball for more than 12 minutes. Rookie Luke Falk, a sixth-round draft pick out of Washington State, played the whole game. Falk outplayed Cousins' backup Trevor Siemian at least in the first quarter, when the Vikings went three-and-out twice.
The Vikings sacked Falk four times Cris Carter Jersey , and he threw for 114 yards. Siemian lasted the first half and was 6 of 11 for 55 yards. Zimmer said he thought Siemian played better and helped out the Vikings' young receivers. Siemian said it was a slow first quarter.
"You get a small sample size and you'd like to keep playing, but that's kind of how it goes," Siemian said.
POSITION BATTLES
Vikings undrafted rookie Mike Boone had 15 carries for 56 yards. He also caught two passes for 53 yards. Roc Thomas, fighting Boone for the third running back slot, hurt his left ankle when tackled at the end of a screen pass early in the second quarter, and finished with four carries for 12 yards.
INJURIES
Minnesota linebacker Kentrell Brothers, suspended for the first four games of the season , suffered a concussion in the first half. Cornerbacks Horace Richardson and Craig James each hurt hamstrings.
Devin Ross Otis Sistrunk Jersey , who started with a chance to push for one of the last wide receiver slots, hurt his right ankle on the first play of the Titans' second series.
ANTHEM WATCH
No protests were seen by either the Vikings or the Titans. Even Tennessee wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who stayed in the tunnel last season after comments by President Trump in September, was on the sideline during the anthem. He was just removed last weekend from the physically unable to perform list.
UP NEXT
Vikings: Host San Francisco on Sept. 9.
Titans: Open season Sept. 9 at Miami.

The Colorado Avalanche players were supposed to be cleaning out their lockers this weekend Vonn Bell Jersey , talking about their return to the playoffs and speaking optimistically of next season.
At least that was the assumption when their first-round series with the Predators, the NHL’s top seed, shifted to Nashville for Game 5 on Friday.
The Predators took a 3-1 series lead into their home game and were expected to close out Colorado, but the Avalanche proved to be a tough out by rallying in the final five minutes to win 2-1 and send the series to Denver for Game 6 on Sunday night.
“We’ve got a series again going home, and it’s going to be exciting,” Colorado captain Gabe Landeskog said after the win Friday.
Landeskog scored the equalizer with 4:11 left and Sven Andrighetto won it with an odd-man rush with 1:28 remaining. The late rally was made possible by the play of Andrew Hammond, the Avalanche’s No. 3 goaltender who was thrust into the spotlight after injuries to Semyon Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier.
Hammond made a career-high 44 saves and outplayed Nashville’s Vezina Trophy favorite, Pekka Rinne, in stunning the Predators.
It was the first time in four tries Nashville has failed to win a game with a chance to end the series dating to last year. But don’t expect the President’s Trophy winners to hang their heads.
“We can’t be depressed in here and sit and stew,” Colton Sissons told The Tennessean after Friday’s game. “We’ve got to move on and be professionals. We’ve been here before and we’ll be ready for Game 6, that’s for sure.”
Nashville still leads the series 3-2 and has already won a game on the road. It was that Game 4 victory that had everyone thinking Game 5 was a formality, but the gritty Avalanche proved to be resilient.
Colorado has made it a series despite mounting injuries. Varlamov’s season ended before the start of the playoffs with a lower-body injury Jordan Phillips Jersey , top defenseman Erik Johnson was lost to a knee injury with a week left in the season and Bernier went down in the second period of Game 4.
Defenseman Samuel Girard, acquired from Nashville in November as part of the three-team deal that sent Matt Duchene to Ottawa, missed the games in Denver with an upper-body injury but returned for Game 5.
Still, the Avalanche have pressed on, are playing loose hockey and have the Predators’ attention.
“It’s hockey,” Predators forward Austin Watson told The Tennessean. “There’s another team out there. I don’t know if you guys see that. They’re playing pretty well.”
Nashville will get back forward Ryan Hartman after he served a one-game suspension for his hit on Colorado center Carl Soderberg in Game 4. His return will bolster an already deep lineup that has scored 17 goals in the five-game series.
But Colorado has shown it won’t go away. The Avalanche scored the first goal in the first three games and their three losses were close. Another close game in the third period Sunday could play in their favor.
“I’ve said it all year long, haven’t I? This is a special group,” Landeskog said. “It’s too early to have the season end. We have way too much hockey in us left, and way too much fight. We’re not going to let this go easy. So we keep working.”
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The end is near.
No, not for the season, although for the Kansas City Royals Drew Brees Jersey , it can’t come soon enough. Shortstop Alcides Escobar’s string of starting 406 consecutive games at shortstop might be coming to an end.
Escobar may or may not be at shortstop Wednesday night when the Royals close out a three-game series against the Texas Rangers. It will also be the finale of an eight-game homestand with the Royals failing to collect a victory in the first seven.
The Royals are in a full-fledged youth movement with a 22-51 record. Escobar, 31, is not part of the future. The Royals are optimistic Adalberto Mondesi, 22, will be.
“Esky’s been our shortstop for a long time,” Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday. “It’s a pretty big change, seeing somebody different at short, but it’s exciting, too because now you’re starting to give other younger players opportunities to see what they can do.”
Escobar has been the Royals starting shortstop since he arrived in 2011 from the Milwaukee Brewers as part of the Zack Greinke deal. He started for the American League in the 2015 All-Star game, claimed a Gold Glove that year and the Royals won the World Series.
The Royal re-signed him to a one-year contract during the winter after he declared for free agency.
“It’s a good chance to experiment right now,” Yost said. “There’s nothing that is going to make or break us. You can start looking at thing a little bit differently and start experimenting with some things.”
He said he plans to play Mondesi a couple of games a week at shortstop, which is his natural position. Meanwhile Jim Otto Jersey , he said he would use Escobar in different positions, including center field, second base and third base.
While the Rangers have won a season-high four straight, the Royals have lost eight in a row — equaling their season-high — and 14 of 15.
They managed a mere four singles in a 4-1 loss on Tuesday night to the Rangers’ Cole Hamels and relievers Jake Diekman and Keone Kela. In June, the Royals are hitting .186 and averaging 2.2 runs per game. They have scored 36 runs in 17 June games. They went 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position on Tuesday and are batting .196 with RISP this month.
Left-hander Yohander Mendez was scheduled to start Wednesday for the Rangers, but instead he was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock for violating team rules. The incident occurred away from Kauffman Stadium and after the Monday night game.
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the violation did not involve the police, was criminal or involve Major League Baseball.
The Rangers recalled right-hander Austin Bibens-Dirkx from Triple-A Round Rock and he will make the start Wednesday. He had a 2-3 record with a 4.47 ERA in 11 starts in the Pacific Coast League. He made two starts earlier this season for Texas, going 0-2 with a 6.55 ERA.
Bibens-Dirkx spent 12 seasons in the minors before making his big-league debut last season. He went 5-2 with a 4.67 ERA in 24 games, including six starts, for the Rangers as a rookie in 2017.
The Royals will counter with right-hander Jakob Junis, who is 5-7 with a 4.43 ERA. He has dropped his past four decisions. He yielded six runs, matching his career high DeForest Buckner Jersey , over 5 1/3 innings in his last start, a loss to the Houston Astros.
Junis is 3-5 with a 4.84 ERA in eight home starts this season. He has allowed 18 home runs, 13 of them at Kauffman Stadium.
This will be Junis’ first appearance against the Rangers.
The Rangers have won 16 of their last 19 games against the Royals, dating to July 23, 2016, including winning four of six this season.
Shin-Soo Choo singled in the sixth inning Tuesday night and has reached base in 33 consecutive games. The Rangers outfielder is hitting .328 during the streak, which is the second longest in the majors this year.

For the first time in more than a month Dwight Clark Jersey , there was music playing in the Baltimore Orioles‘ clubhouse following a game.
The team still faces an uphill battle to turn the season around, but it was admittedly just nice to get a win.
Jace Peterson and Mark Trumbo homered and the Orioles snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 10-4 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Baltimore also ended a string of 11 straight losses at home, which tied a club record. The Orioles last win at Camden Yards came May 13 against Tampa Bay.
”We’re doing what we can, constantly trying to get better,” Trumbo said. ”It doesn’t always show up, but that has to be the goal going forward. It’s going to be a long road for the team, but you want to see improvement in some areas. I think if you can target those and actually do it, we’ll be that much better because of that.”
Dylan Bundy (5-7) allowed four runs and five hits with five strikeouts and two walks over six innings. He has accounted for one-quarter of his team’s victories this season.
Peterson got his first homer of the season with a two-run shot off reliever Merandy Gonzalez in the fifth and matched a career-high with four RBIs. Trumbo went 3 for 5 with a home run off Gonzalez in the seventh.
Miami was 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.
Justin Bour had a pair of homers, including a three-run shot that pulled the Marlins to within 8-4 in the sixth.
”The last couple of days the team has done a good job of picking me up Josh Hill Jersey ,” Bour said. ”It was nice to contribute today.”
Baltimore entered the game as the lowest-scoring team in the American League, but knocked around Miami rookie Trevor Richards (1-4). Fellow rookie Corban Joseph was the only Baltimore starter not to manage a hit off him.
Trumbo led off the second with a single and Jonathan Schoop followed with a double. Peterson cleared the bases with another double that bounced over the center field fence.
Trumbo hit another towering RBI double before Mancini followed with a single that boosted the lead to 4-0 in the third. Mancini had been 4 for 50 with runners in scoring position entering that at-bat.
”This is the first time he’s gone through something like this,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ”You’re trying to be real supportive with not only him, but everybody. We’re going to keep trying to create some positive vibes.”
Bour led off the fourth with a homer to left, snapping a streak 211/3 scoreless innings by Bundy.
”Once we get behind, Bour gets us one back and then gets us three more,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. ”We never really get where we needed to be.”
Baltimore responded in the bottom half on a double by Adam Jones that drove in two more runs and ended the day for Richards, who was charged with a season-high six runs and nine hits.
Manny Machado had two hits, including an RBI single in the eighth that rounded out the scoring for Baltimore.
FISHING
Trumbo has hit safely in 11 of 12 games against the Marlins Larry Warford Jersey , batting .370 (17 for 46) over that stretch.
MOVE
The Orioles optioned catcher Chance Cisco to Triple-A Norfolk following the game.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Marlins: INF Miguel Rojas was held out of the lineup for the second consecutive game after being hit on the left hand by a pitch Friday.
Orioles: RHP Andrew Cashner (back) did not have any setbacks with his bullpen session and will start Wednesday in Washington. He is 2-8 with a 4.98 ERA in 13 starts.
UP NEXT
Marlins: Left-hander Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.75 ERA) will make his second consecutive start against the Giants. On June 13, he allowed three runs and eight hits over 6 1/3 innings and did not get a decision in the Marlins’ 5-4 victory.
Orioles: Rookie David Hess (2-3, 4.13 ERA) will start the opener Tuesday against the Nationals, who handed him a 2-0 loss May 30.
——
The 49ers announced their roster moves, including the release of 21 players.
They also placed defensive lineman Kentavius Street on the reserve/non-football injury list, with receiver Victor Bolden Jr. and linebacker Reuben Foster moving to the reserve/suspended list.
The team’s cuts were: defensive lineman Jeremiah Attaochu, receiver Aaron Burbridge, guard Jonathan Cooper 12th Fan Jersey , receiver Steven Dunbar Jr., tight end Ross Dwelley, defensive back Antone Exum Jr., tight end Cole Hikutini, fullback Malcolm Johnson, offensive lineman Andrew Lauderdale, defensive back Dexter McCoil, cornerback Tarvarus McFadden, running back Jeremy McNichols Stefon Diggs Jersey , cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, quarterback Nick Mullens, defensive back Tyvis Powell, defensive lineman Niles Scott, offensive lineman Coleman Shelton, linebacker Pita Taumoepenu, linebacker Korey Toomer, offensive lineman Najee Toran and running back Jeff Wilson Jr.
