NHL Stanley Cup Finals. Jordan Stall’s short-handed goal opened the floodgates in the second period, as the Penguins scored three goals in less than six minutes as Pittsburgh evened up the series 2-2 with a convincing 4-2 victory over Detroit, who appeared tired after the fourth game in six nights. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin each had a goal and an assist and Marc-Andre Fleury was great between the pipes, making 37 saves. [NHL.com]

NBA Finals. Kobe Bryant led the way with 40 points and the Lakers defense smothered Josh Howard, holding him to a paltry 12 points on 1-6 shooting, as the Los Angeles Lakers took a 1-0 lead series, burying the Orlando Magic 100-75. Also not good for the Magic: Phil Jackson-coached teams are an astounding 43-0 in playoff series in which they win the first game. Yikes. [NBA.com]

MLB Scoreboard. After getting his first opportunity to get his 300th win, Randy Johnson had to wait an additional 36 minutes past the time of the scheduled first pitch, but the waiting paid off as he pitched an effective six innings and the Giants beat the Nationals 5-1. Congrats. In other games, Chris Carpenter pitched a a three-hit shutout in St. Louis’ 3-0 win over Cincinnati, Jason Giambi (!) hit a three-run homer as Oakland blanked Chicago 7-0 and Jason Kubel hit two three-run homers in Minnesota’s 11-3 pounding of the Cleveland Indians.

This is why we can’t have nice things. Some people can’t mind their business and leave well-enough alone, can they? Arson is suspected in a fire that burned down the Grand View Coffee Shop (nice name!) in Vassalboro, Maine on Wednesday. Before Wednesday’s fire, coffee and donuts were served by topless men and women at the Grand View Coffee Shop and I think that’s the tits. The blaze may have been related to the owner discussing the possibility of extending the coffee shop’s hours and turning it into a strip club just hours earlier. Owner Donald Crabtree vows to open the business up again despite the fact that many people in town appeared quite pleased about the fire. Good for you, Mr. Crabtree. Fight the power! [AOL News/AP]
