NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Rehash: The Columbus Blue Jackets gave it their best effort in Game 4, but still lost and were swept out of the playoffs by the Detroit Red Wings 6-5; Martin Brodeur overcame a cut on his ankle and tied Patrick Roy’s playoff shutout record (23) by leading the New Jersey Devils to a 1-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes (New Jersey leads the series 3-2); Philadelphia blanked Pittsburgh 3-0 to stay alive in their series but are still down 3 games to 2 to the Penguins; and a minor earthquake in Orange County during the first intermission that registered 4.0 shook up the San Jose Sharks as they fell to the Anaheim Ducks 4-0, putting the Sharks, the number one seed in the Western Conference, one game away from elimination heading into Game 6.

Teacher Bores The Shit Out Of Students, Literally. A 5-year old kindergartner in Washington was sent home with feces wrapped in a paper towel in his backpack, along with a note that read, “This little turd was on the floor in my room.” The father of the child suspects the teacher placed the poopy package in his son’s backpack – this story has kind of a Stand and Deliver-esque quality to it, except on this occasion, squatting was involved.
