The  NHL  playoffs got  underway Tuesday with  a trio of  games in the Western
Conference.  Bryan Bickell's  overtime  tally lifted  the Presidents'  Trophy-
winning Chicago Blackhawks over the Minnesota Wild in the opener, while in St.
Louis,  Alexander  Steen scored twice,  including a short-handed marker in the
extra  session to  boost the  Blues over  the defending  champion Los  Angeles
Kings.  In  the nightcap,  Teemu Selanne  scored the  game-winner early in the
third  period  to lift  the Pacific  Division champion  Anaheim Ducks over the
Detroit Red Wings.

The  chase for  the Stanley  Cup  continues Wednesday  with a  trio of  tilts,
including two from the Eastern Conference. A pair of Original Six teams square
off  in the  opener, as the Toronto  Maple Leafs visit the Boston Bruins at TD
Garden.  The top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins host the New York Islanders in the
second  game,  while the  nightcap comes  from the  Western Conference, as the
Northwest  Division champion  Vancouver Canucks welcome the San Jose Sharks to
Rogers Arena.


Tuesday's  NBA  playoff schedule featured  a pair of  Game 5s from the Western
Conference.  Down 3-1 in the series, the Denver Nuggets forced a Game 6 with a
hard-fought win over the Golden State Warriors. In the nightcap, Zach Randolph
and  Marc Gasol  guided the Memphis Grizzlies past the Los Angeles Clippers to
take a 3-2 lead in the series.

A  trio of  Game 5s are on  tap for Wednesday's NBA playoff slate, including a
pair  from  the Eastern Conference. The  Boston Celtics will look to stave off
elimination  again  after avoiding a  sweep in Game 4  when they visit the New
York  Knicks. Also in the East, the Atlanta Hawks will try to earn their third
straight  victory  and take a  3-2 series  lead as they  take on the Pacers in
Indiana. The nightcap comes from the Western Conference, as Oklahoma City will
take  its  second shot at  closing out the Rockets  after Houston held off the
Thunder in a Game 4 victory.


The  New York  Yankees  have placed  infielder Kevin  Youkilis  on the  15-day
disabled  list with  a lumbar spine sprain. Youkilis had missed six games last
week  battling  the injury,  but did  play on Saturday,  before sitting out on
Sunday  and Monday.  An MRI  on  Monday came  back negative,  but Youkilis  is
scheduled  to receive  an  epidural injection  of a  pain  killer on  Tuesday.
Over  17  games this season,  Youkilis is batting .266  with two home runs and
seven RBI.

Miami  Marlins outfielder  Giancarlo Stanton  has  been placed  on the  15-day
disabled  list because  of a strained right hamstring. Stanton was hurt during
the  10th inning of  Monday's game against the Mets while trying to beat out a
tapper  in  front of the plate.  He pulled up  after he crossed first base and
fell  to the  ground in pain before  walking off under his own power. Stanton,
who  also  missed about a  week with a shoulder  issue earlier this season, is
batting .227 over 20 games with three homers and nine runs batted in.


Jacksonville  Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been suspended without
pay  for the team's  first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating
the  NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Blackmon caught 64 passes
for  865 yards  and five touchdowns during  his rookie season in 2012. The 23-
year-old  Blackmon will be eligible to return to the Jaguars' active roster on
September  30 following  the team's September 29 game against the Indianapolis


PGA  Tour commissioner  Tim Finchem  announced on  Tuesday that  the tour  has
dropped  its  case  against  Vijay  Singh, meaning  the  player  will  not  be
suspended.  Singh  had admitted  to  using  deer  antler  spray in  a  "Sports
Illustrated"  story in January. Deer antler spray is known to contain IGF-1, a
growth  factor listed on both the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and PGA Tour
Prohibitive Lists, which the tour warned players about in August 2011. The PGA
Tour had issued a sanction against Singh, and he later appealed the sanction.


Denny  Hamlin  revealed on  his  Twitter  account  Tuesday  that he  has  been
medically  cleared to  at  least  start Sunday's  Sprint  Cup  Series race  at
Talladega  Superspeedway. Hamlin  has missed the last four Sprint Cup races --
Martinsville,  Texas, Kansas  and Richmond -- due to a compression fracture in
his  lower back, an injury he sustained during an accident on the final lap of
the  March 24 event  in California. He will be able to start the race, thereby
receiving  the  full points  based on  where the  No. 11  Joe Gibbs Racing car
finishes,  but  will be  replaced by a  yet to be  determined driver some time
during the race. He has dropped from 10th to 28th in the point standings.
