Matthews scores in OT, Maple Leafs rally to beat Blackhawks

Auston Matthews had his own goalie taking pity on their opponent after his latest timely goal.

Matthews beat Anton Forsberg 3:43 into overtime to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-3 comeback win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

The 20-year-old Matthews had very little space to work with but ripped a wrist shot over Forsberg’s glove for his second goal of the season.

“We didn’t do anything on offense to give us a chance,” California coach Justin Wilcox said. “We’re going to have to re-evaluate some things.”

California: The Bears brutal schedule has caught up with them. After starting 3-0, the Bears have dropped three straight to Southern California, Oregon and Washington. The Bears were thoroughly dominated along the line of scrimmage by the Huskies and it doesn’t get easier next week with undefeated Washington State visiting. “I think we’re going to find out more about our team in the next 48 hours than any time since I’ve been here,” Wilcox said.

Washington: If there was one complaint it would be the Huskies downfield passing game. Aside Wholesale Jerseys Paypal from Bryant, Washington had only four pass plays of 10 or more yards and none longer than 13.

Letang may not have found the scoresheet yet, but he’s playing big minutes on a powerful offense and generating a ton of chances on goal. Don’t overreact when you see Letang has a goose egg in the UK Cheap Jerseys points column and a minus-5 rating. Even though they aren’t ranked in that order yet here, I think Pietrangelo and Letang will end up rounding out your top-six fantasy defensemen before long.

Rays offer support for Chris Archer in his feud with Astros mascot

Baseball feuds are nothing new, but the rift between Rays pitcher Chris Archer and the Astros mascot reached a new level on Monday.

The Rays responded by lending their full support behind Archer, saying the team would give the 28-year-old North Carolina native “all the water balloons and silly string he requires” to combat Orbit.

Analysis: The Dodgers went for it this trade deadline, acquiring three pitchers. The biggest deal was for Rangers ace Darvish, who had been on the trade block for several days.

Darvish, 30, is 6-9 with a 4.01 ERA in 22 starts for the Rangers this season. He UK Cheap Jerseys can become a free agent at the end of the season.
