Today's Schedule: NY Mets @ LA Dodgers (Game 5 NLDS) - 8:07 PM (TBS)
Flyers Shutout Blackhawks 3-0!
Sam Gagner opened up the scoring, and he has looked good in the past two games with the team. Michael Del Zotto and Brayden Schenn had the assists. Claude Giroux scored, and IT WASN'T ON THE POWER PLAY! IT WAS EVEN STRENGTH!!!!!! Let me say that again, CLAUDE GIROUX SCORED AN EVEN STRENGTH GOAL!!!!!! You knew then the Flyers would win. Matt Read added a late goal in the third.
The Flyers have a long break ahead, six days long, before hosting the Dallas Stars Tuesday night before heading up to Boston to play the Bruins the following night. So they can't really go with the "hot hand" in goal, since a cool down of six days doesn't really help. But it was great to see Kimmo! (RECAP)
And, he would really like to coach the Flyers in some way and bring a Stanley Cup back to the city. He's William Penn's new favorite great-great-great...grandson.
Okafor to start season slow
Okafor has sat out the last two practices and might even sit out his second straight preseason game in lieu of a sore knee. Time to panic? Maybe not yet Sixers fans! It is still the preseason and more players will probably be sitting out to avoid injury. (Report)

Lamar Odom Found unresponsive, in critical condition
Royals, Blue Jays Advance to ALCS
The Blue Jays also took down the Rangers in Game 5 of the ALDS. In an exciting game, the only highlight you need to watch is the greatest bat flip I have ever seen by Jose Bautista. The three run homer put the Blue Jays up for good in the bottom of the seventh. Take a watch
