Patrick Kane First American to Lead League in Points

The Art Ross Trophy has gone to the top scorer in the NHL each season since 1947-48, but it wasn't until Sunday that an American won it. Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane, a Buffalo native, finished the season with a career-high 106 points to outpace the Dallas Stars' Jamie Benn (89) for the title. Kane finished with career bests in goals (46) and assists (60). The Blackhawks finished third in the Central Division and will face the St. Louis Blues in the first round of the playoffs starting Wednesday. Chicago will attempt to become the first team to win back-to-back Stanley Cups since the Detroit Red Wings in the 1997 and 1998 seasons. Kane's list of accomplishments this season is long. He became the first Blackhawks player to win the Art Ross since Stan Mikita in 1967-68. Mikita had won it four out of five years, with Chicago's Bobby Hull taking the honors in 1965-66. Kane posted a 26-game point streak (16G, 24A) from Oct. 17 to Dec. 13, the longest run by an American-born player. He had a career-best seven-game goal streak from Nov. 2 to Nov. 15, 27 multipoint games and his first two regular-season hat tricks. All of these numbers came in an era when scoring is down. He became just one of four players to break the 100-point mark in the past five seasons. Kane's linemate Artemi Panarin could be in line for some hardware of his own. He led all rookies in scoring with 77 points and could become the first Blackhawks player to win the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie since Kane in 2007-08.

MU - De Gea hết hợp đồng, Juventus ra tay: Lộ diện 2 “siêu thủ môn” thế chỗ
Năm lần bảy lượt từ chối gia hạn hợp đồng, De Gea có vẻ như đã không còn tâm trí ở MU. Trước hình hình trên, Juventus bắt đầu hành động. Hồi giữa tháng 7, cách đọc kèo châu âu trước khi lên đường tham gia tour du đấu Hè, De Gea và MU về cơ bản đã đạt được các thỏa thuận gia hạn hợp đồng. Theo đó, mức lương mới De Gea sẽ nhận là 375.000 bảng/tuần. Nhưng đã hai tháng trôi qua, mọi thứ vẫn không có gì tiến triển. Truyền thông Anh lại bắt đầu râm ran thông tin thủ môn Tây Ban Nha cương quyết rời MU để tìm kiếm bến đỗ mới tiếp theo. Lý do lớn nhất vì Quỷ đỏ” đang dần đánh mất khả năng cạnh tranh những danh hiệu lớn. Ngoài ra, Juventus cũng là một nguyên nhân đang khiến De Gea dao động. Theo nguồn tin của The Athletic, Juventus hay cụ thể hơn là giám đốc thể thao Fabio Paratici đã âm thầm liên lạc với De Gea suốt 8 tuần qua. Một bản hợp đồng sơ bộ gần như đã trở thành hiện thực, bao gồm việc thuyết phục De Gea chuyển đến Turin ở phiên chợ Đông. Vào thời điểm đó, thủ môn Tây Ban Nha sẽ chỉ còn 6 tháng hợp đồng với MU. Nếu như quyết tâm giữ lại ngôi sao của mình đến kỳ chuyển nhượng Hè 2020, “Quỷ đỏ” sẽ mất trắng và khi đó Juventus vẫn có dịp chứng tỏ mình là chuyên gia săn hàng “chất lượng cao giá 0 đồng” giống như điều họ từng làm với Rabiot, Can, Ramsey. Lúc này, De Gea nhiều khả năng đang không còn tâm trí ở lại MU sau khi chứng kiến những đồng đội cũ lâu năm như Valencia, Smalling, Darmian hoặc mới đây là Lukaku, Sanchez… lần lượt “khăn gói” rời Old Trafford. Hơn thế nữa Juventus đang mở một tương lai đầy hứa hẹn cho thủ thành Tây Ban Nha với mức đãi ngộ xứng đáng, thay vì MU sẽ bị cắt 25% lương do không được dự Champions League. Nếu như đến với “Lão phu nhân”, De Gea chắc chắn sẽ là lựa chọn số 1 bởi Szczesny chưa bao giờ tạo ra sự yên tâm, còn Buffon đã 41 tuổi. Ngoài ra, thủ thành Tây Ban Nha sẽ được thi đấu “Dream-team” với sự hiện diện của Cristiano Ronaldo, De Ligt, Dybala, Higuain cùng vô số những hảo thủ khác trong đội hình và hướng tới những danh hiệu cao quý. Lộ diện 2 “siêu người nhện” sẵn sàng thế chỗ Trong buổi chia sẻ mới đây, link w88 cựu thủ môn của Chelsea - Mark Schwarzer cho rằng việc De Gea ra đi không phải thảm họa. "MU cần phải quyết định tương lai De Gea càng sớm càng tốt. Đôi khi không phải lúc nào cũng nên nhìn vào quá khứ. Nếu như nhìn vào mình trình diễn trong 6 tháng vừa qua, tất cả chỉ đạt mức trung bình và De Gea cần biết mình đang ở đâu.” Không thể phủ nhận, De Gea chính là cầu thủ từng 4 lần giành giải thưởng cầu thủ xuất sắc nhất năm của MU (nhiều nhất lịch sử). Tuy nhiên, phong độ của De Gea kể từ sau World Cup 2018 rõ ràng đã đi xuống rất nhiều. Tờ Manchester Evening News cho biết, MU đang sẵn sàng cho tương lai không có De Gea sau 8 năm làm việc chung. Theo đó, các tuyển trạch viên đang theo sát hai thủ môn là Jan Oblak (Atletico) và Jordan Pickford (Everton).

[Miracle] Most Inspirational Speech in Sports History
Recently, I wrote a card about an emotional moment that gets me every time I watch the movie Remember the Titans. (If you guys haven't checked it out, you guys can check it out here ---> [Remember the Titans] Brother) And after hearing some feedback from all of you guys, I thought about the most inspirational moment in sports movies and this is what I came up with. Coach Herb Brooks' game speech before the Gold Medal match against the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Soviets undoubtedly had the best hockey team in the world at that time. The Soviet Union had won all the Winter Olympics ice hockey tournaments since 1960. And the 1980 Winter Olympics were to be made even more difficult because the U.S. - Soviet relations were at all-time lows due to the on-going Cold War. And when, the U.S. hockey team were to face the Soviet Union for the gold medal on their home ground (Lake Placid), you probably can imagine what was going through the minds of not only the players, but the entire country! So, in order to prep these college players for the biggest game of their lives, Coach Brooks spoke these words. "Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game; if we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them, and we shut them down because we can. Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players—every one of you, and you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it!" I feel like this is the most inspirational speeches of all time. What are your all-time favorite speeches in sports?
I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Vingle Sports News and Analysis: 11 February 2016
What's up fellow sports vinglers, it's your commentator @KyleBerke aka K-Boss here! Starting today I will be coming out with daily cards for my new Vingle Sports News and Analysis (VSNA for short) series. I'll be discussing the sports results of the day for American football, hockey, basketball, baseball, football, and tennis along with their impact on playoff and draft position. Without further ado, here is the first of many daily VSNA cards! There were only two games in the NBA today as we finally enter the all star break. The under card saw the Milwaukee Bucks handle the Washington Wizards at home 99-92. Milwaukee is currently at the bottom of a scrum of eastern conference teams trying to crack the playoffs and has back to back wins after dropping five straight Ls. Washington is still 2.5 games ahead of Milwaukee but they've struggled to find any consistency lately. They remain in tenth place in the eastern conference. Meanwhile, the Thunder blew out the Pelicans to become the third team this year to reach 40 wins before the all star break. It was an emotionally charged win for the Thunder, after assistant coach Monty Williams wife Ingrid passed away in a car accident on Wednesday. Players and staff around the league have offered support and condolences to Williams and his family. The well-liked assistant coach has five kids, so send thoughts and prayers for him and his family in this tough time. It was a big night in hockey. The Dallas Stars exacted revenge on the Chicago Blackhawks, beating them 4-2. Patrick Eaves had a hat trick and Kari Lehtonen had 44 saves in the road win, while Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane scored for the Blackhawks in the loss. Kane now has 33 goals on the season, but was overtaken by Alexander Ovechkin in the season goal column. Ovechkin had a hat trick to push his total to 34 on the season as the Capitals beat the Wild 4-3. Washington has a big lead in the race for the President's Trophy, with 84 points. Chicago and Dallas lead the west with 75 and 74 points respectively. For the rest of the scores: the Islanders dismantled the LA Kings 5-2, the Flyers blew out the Sabres 5-1, Columbus beat Anaheim in a shootout 4-3, Colorado topped the Ottawa Senators 4-3, Boston cruised past Winnipeg 6-2, and the Oilers bested the Leafs 5-2. The Islanders are currently in third place I in the Metropolitan division, and are trying to put distance between them and the Penguins. LA still has a seven point lead over San Jose for control of the Pacific division. Boston is now tied with Detroit for second in the Atlantic, and bounces back from their crushing 9-2 loss at home to the Kings. In tennis, 1st and 2nd seeds Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer both cruised into the Argentina Open quarterfinals with straight set victories. Nadal is looking to erase his recent struggles and the frustration of his first round exit at the Aussie Open by successfully defending his title in Buenos Aires. Nadal hasn't won a title since August of last year and only won 3 in all of 2015, including the Argentina Open. That's all for today, folks! Let me know in the comments if you want to be tagged in future VSNA cards. Also let me know if you'd like me to include college sports in future cards. I don't really know how many of you are into college basketball, baseball, or hockey but I can definitely cover those if there is interest. Give me feedback so I can improve this series. Thank you and see you tomorrow!
Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx
