There is nothing poetic or necessarily pretty about the way the New York Rangers play, particularly on the road. It's a formula that led New York to the league's best record, one they returned to while restoring order in their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Choking off the passing lanes and the open ice where Penguins' stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin thrive, New York built an early lead behind goals from Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider then held on for a 2-1 win in Game 3 on Monday night to take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

African marathoners top at Boston two years after bombingPominville, Parise give Wild 3-0 win over Blues (Yahoo Sports)

Rotich of Kenya crosses the finish line to win the women's division of the 119th Boston Marathon in BostonBy Scott Malone and Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Ethiopian runner Lelisa Desisa finished first in the Boston Marathon on Monday, reclaiming the top spot in a race he last won two years ago when it was struck by a deadly bombing attack. Caroline Rotich of Kenya led the women's field, affirming African athletes' dominance at the race. "Strong Boston!" Desisa shouted after he crossed the finish line, in a version of the "Boston Strong" motto that became the city's rallying cry after the April 15, 2013, attack that killed three and injured 264. Security was high near the start line in Hopkinton, along the 26.2 mile (42.16 km) course and around the finish line in Boston, in recognition of the bombing, one of the most visible attacks on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001.

The St. Louis Blues have been busy trying to agitate the Minnesota Wild into costly mistakes. With a sarcastic smile here and a timely goal there, the Wild have kept their cool and taken the series lead. Devan Dubnyk made 17 saves, Jason Pominville and Zach Parise scored in the second period and the Wild cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Blues in Game 3 on Monday. ''That stuff after the whistle doesn't win you games, so we're just focused on playing our game and playing it smart.'' Mikael Granlund had two assists, Nino Niederreiter added an empty-netter and the Wild had the edge in every way, without being drawn into a single trip to the penalty box.


Baltimore police vow full probe of black man's death while in custodyEli Manning comfortable playing last year of Giants contract (Yahoo Sports)
Baltimore police vowed on Monday to make a full and swift probe of the death of a black suspect who suffered spinal injuries after white officers arrested him, the latest incident to raise questions about the treatment of minorities by U.S. police. Freddie Gray, 27, of Baltimore, was arrested on April 12 and died on Sunday from a spinal injury after slipping into a coma, officials said. Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said officers had arrested Gray without using force after he fled when they approached him. Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said a wide-ranging and transparent department investigation would be concluded by the end of next week and the results forwarded to state prosecutors.

Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning believes current work rules that force him to work out with his receivers away from the New York Giants' training facilities are absurd. Speaking Monday as the team started voluntary offseason workouts, Manning said the collective bargaining agreement makes it difficult for him to work out with teammates without violating league rules. Earlier this month, Manning went to Duke with NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle for three days of throwing, going over the offense with the receivers and getting a jump start on organized team activities.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
