Pulis happy to discuss Cardiff row - Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is willing to discuss Cardiff's claims over team-sheet leaking with the Premier League. Changes 'against Paralympic values' - Hamilton top in second practice - Stastny leads Avs to 5-4 OT win over Wild (Yahoo Sports) - Paul Stastny scored 7:27 into overtime after tying the game with 13.4 seconds remaining in regulation, lifting the Colorado Avalanche to a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild in the opener of the Western Conference quarterfinals on Thursday night. Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O'Reilly and Jamie McGinn also added goals for Colorado in Patrick Roy's postseason debut behind the bench. The Hall of Fame goaltender led the Avalanche to two Stanley Cup titles as a player. Erik Haula, Charlie Coyle, Ryan Suter and Kyle Brodziak scored for the Wild. Blues beat Blackhawks 4-3 in 3 OTs (Yahoo Sports) - Alexander Steen scored at 26 seconds of the third overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Thursday night. Steen beat Corey Crawford off a pair of short passes from Steve Ott and David Backes to cap the longest overtime game in franchise history. ''Especially at home in front of our fans.'' Ryan Miller blanked the Blackhawks after Patrick Kane scored on a breakaway to put Chicago up 3-2 late in the first period and Jaden Schwartz tied it with 1:45 to go in regulation. Alonso quickest in China practice - Ferrari's Fernando Alonso welcomes his new team principal to Formula 1 by setting the pace in first practice at the Chinese Grand Prix. Nationals make 4 errors in 8-0 loss to Cardinals (Yahoo Sports) - The Cardinals' first batter sent a seemingly routine grounder to Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond, who failed to field the ball cleanly for one of his two errors on the evening. The next hitter's swinging bunt was grabbed by pitcher Taylor Jordan, but he could not manage to get the ball out of his glove. And so began the latest disastrous defensive showing by Washington, whose rookie manager, Matt Williams, made better fielding a point of emphasis this spring. The Nationals finished with four errors - raising their total to 20 in 16 games - and that was the last thing they needed Thursday, because Adam Wainwright was dominant while throwing a two-hitter to lead St. Louis to a 7-0 victory. Dodgers' Puig focuses on baseball despite issues (Yahoo Sports) - Yasiel Puig believes he has the support from his Los Angeles Dodgers teammates and the club to help him keep his focus on baseball despite challenges off the field. Puig returned to the starting lineup in right field for Thursday's series finale against the Giants amid reports that smugglers who helped him defect from Cuba had threatened his life. ''I'm only concentrating on the season and being the best teammate and helping my teammates,'' Puig said, speaking in Spanish during an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday morning at his locker in AT&T Park. While Puig won't address the details specifically because of a pending legal case, he said he will focus on baseball and on helping the defending NL West champion Dodgers keep winning. Wainwright's 2-hitter leads Cards past Nats 8-0 (Yahoo Sports) - Adam Wainwright threw a two-hitter Thursday night for his seventh career shutout, chipped in at the plate with a double and single, and St. Louis benefited from four errors by Washington in the Cardinals' 8-0 victory. Wainwright (3-1) allowed Ian Desmond's infield single in the second inning and Adam LaRoche's single to right in the ninth. Desmond, Washington's shortstop, made a pair of errors, raising his season total to seven. The Nationals have 20 through 16 games, an average of 1.25. Rangers score 3 in 3rd, top Flyers in opener 4-1 (Yahoo Sports) - Brad Richards and Derek Stepan scored power-play goals 47 seconds apart in the third period, and the New York Rangers beat Philadelphia 4-1 in the playoff opener on Thursday night to stretch their home-winning streak over the rival Flyers to nine games. The teams were locked in a 1-1 tie when Jason Akeson - playing in just his third career NHL game - was given a double high-sticking penalty for clipping Rangers forward Carl Hagelin with 7:35 remaining. New York quickly took advantage. Richards gave the Rangers their first lead of the night when a rebound of Martin St. Louis' shot came to him, and he fired it in from the right circle, punctuating the moment with an emphatic fist pump at 8:22.
