NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Recap. The Blackhawks played their hearts out, but it was not to be. Darren Helm scored the game-winner 3:58 into overtime for Detroit and the Red Wings beat the Blackhawks 2-1 and now advance to the Stanley Cup Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins after defeating Chicago four games to one. Both goaltenders were incredible throughout the game, but Chris Osgood made the key saves when necessary, stopping 30 shots and Cristobal Huet withstood almost everything the Red Wings threw at him, making 44 saves in the loss. The game was scoreless heading into the third period when Dan Cleary scored at the 6:08 mark. Patrick Kane answered six minutes later with an unbelievable backhander to beat Osgood on the glove side. Detroit will now try to be the first team to win back-to-back Stanley Cups since they did after the 1997 and 1998 seasons. [NHL.com]

MLB Roundup. Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano had a meltdown when he was ejected from the Cubs’ 5-2 win over the Pirates, making contact with umpire Mark Carlson and proceeding to throw a ball in the outfield, chucking his glove and taking a bat to a dugout drink dispenser – but hey, Cubbies win! Toronto’s bullpen blew a solid start for Roy Halladay, allowing Baltimore to come back from 5 runs down to beat the Blue Jays 12-10 in extra innings, extending Toronto’s losing streak to nine games.

This guy is such a moron, I’m surprised he didn’t go with the “I could get uromysitisis poisoning and die, that’s why” excuse. Michael Hicks, a contract employee with the IRS has been charged with damaging federal property after it was discovered he had been urinating in a freight elevator at the Internal Revenue Service data center in Detroit. The cost associated with cleaning the elevator was $4,600 which leads me to believe this guy ate a lot of asparagus. Surveillance cameras were used to catch him yellow-handed and when asked why he did it, he said “because he felt he could get away with it.” Bravo, Rebel Pisser: taking the IRS down a notch one bladder-emptying at a time.
