Gingrich calls on GOP to 'abolish' Trump-Russia probe

Asked by a reporter if he had told Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Flynn, Trump said, "I didn't say that". More troubling than Comey's testimony , they argued, was Trump's own admittance on the now-infamous 2005 Access Hollywood tape when he bragged: "I just start kissing them". Read More »

A little good fortune also benefited Murray, particularly on Sunday night when Nashville was counting on goalie Pekka Rinne to be his usual dominating self at home . In doing so, the Predators became the first eighth-seeded team to sweep a first-round series since the current playoff format was introduced in 1994. Read More »

Predators 2-0 deficit with Penguins not encouraging for Rinne

perth_map

Penguins C Evgeni Malkin and Nashville D P.K. Subban - two of the biggest names in the game - fought at 12:14 of the third, with Malkin picking up an extra roughing penalty. If Game 1 was an unfortunate showing due to some extremely wacky circumstances, Game 2 was the complete opposite for the Predators. Why give the Penguins the added benefit of knowing, for sure, which of these two very different goalies they'll face as the series shifts to Nashville? "At the end of the day, every time ...

LeBron says he'd want Magic, Jordan as his 3-on-3 teammates

I stay out of the 1-on-1 matchups during our practice, the 2-on-2 and the 3-on-3s. A 3-on-3 team of LeBron, Jordan and Magic is downright scary right now, let alone when all three players were in their primes. The 3-on-3 format gives fans another version of the game to watch, in addition to regular basketball. I'm not quite sure. "I'm more of a 5-on-5 guy", LeBron told the AP . Read More »

Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

The parallels between this Game 4 - with the Warriors losing their composure and picking up several technicals as a team, not to mention Green's weird moment where he briefly expected to be ejected - and the one these teams played a year ago were unmistakable. Read More »

Cup repeat for Penguins

perth_map

It was their third cup in the " Sidney Crosby era" - 2009, 2016 and 17 - and the franchise's fifth championship. The referee thought Penguins goalie Matt Murray had the puck but it had actually trickled just behind him and into the crease where Sissons had what should have been the opening goal. Read More »

Chris Coleman praises Welsh players after draw in Serbia

Aaron Ramsey's penalty helped Wales to a precious 1-1 draw in Serbia in World Cup qualifying on Sunday as they kept their hopes of a place at the finals in Russian Federation alive. "We had a game plan and the players stuck to that, I'm really proud of them". "There's nothing wrong with it at all - he's called a foul on Shane Duffy and I can't see it", said O'Neill. Read More »

Lions captain Warburton casts doubt over role in opening All Blacks Test

The Lions appeared dominant at the coal face, save for one scrum where the hosts got the edge, resulting in an extended bout of jostling between the two packs. "The law says there must be a small gap; they don't play to the law of the game". But Gatland rejected those suggestions, emphasizing the Lions' ability to shut down a team that had averaged five tries per game in Super Rugby this season. Read More »

Bryan Robson has urged Jose Mourinho to sign "a few flair players" to enable Manchester United to challenge for the Premier League title next season. Smalling was reduced to 29 starts across United's various competitions, with the most injury-hit campaign of his career leading to frustration both on the part of the player and his manager.

Bacsinszky, Ostapenko advance to French Open semis

She has yet to win a WTA title and her best run at a Grand Slam before arriving in Paris was reaching the third round at this year's Australian Open . Next came perhaps the game of the match, a 12-minute triumph of quality and touch over adversity. When they returned, Mladenovic raced into a 3-2 lead, but was unable to back it up and Bacsinszky took the next four games to stretch to what proved to be a crucial 5-3 lead. Read More »

The Stanley Cup is returning to Pittsburgh after Patric Hornqvist scored the go-ahead goal on a bad-angle shot with 95 seconds left in a 2-0 win over the Nashville Predators in Game 6.

Ireland's victory - temporarily at least - lifted them top of Group D, with 12 points from their six games. "It was very disappointing". And O'Neill could not hide his irritation, particularly in relation to Duffy's disallowed goal , after the defender collided with Lainer on the Austrian goalline. Read More »

La Decima - The Story: The final preparation

Telling Words: "For the first time, I cried after winning a match". Fortunately, that was not the case as Raonic cruised in his first three rounds, only dropping one set. "He's playing the best he's ever played". He was suitably dominant in Sunday's final. Nadal, however, is just hoping his knees hold out at Wimbledon next month. Read More »

The Cup rookie is no stranger to Pocono Raceway , winning everything except a race at the Tricky Triangle. "I think it exceeds the dream a little bit", he said. Despite a third speeding penalty between the second and third stages, Wallace lined up at the tail end of the field for the final 55-lap run. A lap later, Harvick passed Busch and closed within a car-length of Blaney, who drove flawlessly for the final eight laps to keep Harvick at bay. Read More »

Watch the best plays from LeBron James' 9 NBA Finals triple-doubles

At Sunday's practice, the prevailing talk among many media members in attendance shifted from the Warriors' seeming invincibility to: "The Warriors better win this or this series is going to seven games". "We weren't coming to blows". There's no other option. We don't look forward to Game 6. Has "Elimination Game Kyrie" officially reached the point of a trend? The Warriors had 13 less made threes with 11 for a whopping differential of 39 points in that category alone. Read More »

Then, under three and a half minutes later, Frederick Gaudreau tied the game up at three. But for Pittsburgh this isn't Columbus, the victim of a gentleman's sweep despite outshooting Pittsburgh ; this isn't Washington, which eventually succumbed to its own internal demons in Game 7; it's not Ottawa, which Pittsburgh solved as the series went on.
