NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Dan Cleary scored with three minutes left in the third period to lead the Red Wings to a 4-3 victory over the Ducks after Detroit squandered a two-goal lead. Detroit now moves on to the Western Conference Finals against the Chicago Blackhawks. It took overtime, but the Hurricanes dispatched the Bruins with a 3-2 win in Boston. Scott Walker, who was fined $25,000 earlier in the series for punching Aaron Ward, scored with 1:14 left in overtime, so Carolina now advances to the Eastern Conference Finals and will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

NBA Playoffs. Josh Dwight (gah!) Howard walked the walk after criticizing Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy’s offensive strategies earlier this week, scoring 23 points and adding 22 rebounds as the Magic defeated the Boston Celtics 83-75 to force a Game Seven. The Lakers continue to be horribly inconsistent, losing to the Houston Rockets by 15, 95-80. L.A. was blown out in Game 4, recovered and blew out the Rockets by 40 in Game 5 and now this. Maybe Phil Jackson is right and we should start giving the injury-depleted Rockets some fucking credit. [NBA.com Scoreboard]

MLB Scoreboard. Shin-soo Choo and Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits apiece as Cleveland beat Tampa Bay 11-5. Joe Crede was the hero for the second consecutive night, following up his walkoff grand slam Wednesday night with a two-run bloop single which was part of a six-run 7th as the Twins stormed back from four down to beat the Tigers 6-5 despite Detroit starter Justin Verlander fanning 13. Los Angeles blew a lead but still managed to win, beating Philadelphia 5-3 in 10 innings. [MLB.com Scoreboard]

Not The Sharpest Bulbs In The Drawer. Two suspected pot dealers were arrested in Framingham, Massachussetts after police claim they tailgated an unmarked police car. When cops pulled them over and asked for license and registration, the glove box was opened and five individually-wrapped bags of weed were in plain view. Also, when one of them got out of the car, he dropped a baggie of coke on the ground, but he denied it, saying, “The weed is mine, but I didn’t drop the coke.” Riiiiiight.
