  • Filip Forberg collected the puck as it bounced off the right boards, and in one fluid motion, as his hips were still turning, he fired a shot toward the Chicago Blackhawks goal. Directly in front of Arvid Soderblom was Luke Evangelista, who screened the Blackhawks goalie, distracting him just enough that he didn’t see Forsberg’s shot come screeching in just over his right shoulder and into the back of the net.

  • Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk of the Boston Bruins has been fined by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for a move he made against Pittsburgh Penguins winger Michael Bunting during Saturday’s game at PPG Paints Arena. [Pittsburgh Penguins]


  • Former Michigan Wolverines football coach Jim Harbaugh has a question that was a family chant and became a rallying cry for the National Champion Wolverines.
