• MLB: Mets 1, Padres 2, 14 innings. There were no Julio Franco heroics last night, as a 14 inning game cuts into his ability to watch Murder, She Wrote and yell at his kids for never calling.

• NHL Playoffs: Edmonton 2, Detroit 3. Kirk Maltby scores an accidental goal in the 2nd overtime to give the Wings a 1-0 series lead.

• NHL Playoffs: Tampa Bay 1, Ottawa 4. The Sens bumrush the Lightning in the third. Attendance, says ESPN.com, was 19,660, which they list as "106.3% full." I'm calling the fire marshall.

• NHL Playoffs: San Jose 3, Nashville 4. Two cities steeped in rich hockey tradition play some ol' time hockey. Paul Kariya assists on all four Nashville goals.

• NHL Playoffs: Anahaiem 1, Calgary 2.. Big ugly mucker/grinder Darren McCarty scored the game winner, and I'm officially out of things to say about hockey.
