    BOSTON (CBS) — Jeremy Swayman is on quite the roll in net for the Boston Bruins, putting him in the upper echelon of NHL goaltenders. He was rewarded for his stellar month of February on Tuesday. Swayman has been named the NHL’s Rookie of the Month, the league announced Tuesday. The 23-year-old finished February with a 5-1-1 record in his seven appearances, with his .960 save percentage and 1.13 goals against average over that stretch the best in the NHL. Those numbers were so stellar thanks to a pair of shutouts by Swayman, including a 7-0 win against the Los Angeles Kings to close the month Monday night. He also kept the Ottawa Senators off the board on Feb. 12, with Swayman stopping all 30 shots that he saw in a 2-0 Boston win. In 24 games this season, Swayman owns a 13-7-3 record and his 1.95 goals against average is tied for first in the league. He is tied for fourth with a .929 save percentage, and his three shutouts are good for sixth in the NHL.
    Getty Russell Westbrook did not take kindly to being compared to Allen Iverson. Both players may be considered all-time greats, but Russell Westbrook is not digging the comparison made between himself and Allen Iverson. According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, an anonymous executive made the comparison between Westbrook and Iverson because both players want to win on their own terms. While speaking to McMenamin, Westbrook didn’t take too kindly to the comparison. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar says he’s “not comparable” to Iverson by any means. “No. 1, I believe that I am a one-of-a-kind player, and I respect Allen and respect everything he’s done for the game, but I’m not comparable to Allen Iverson by any means,” says Westbrook. “No. 2, is that I’ve been probably—I feel, myself—always trying to fit in to do the best for the betterment of the team. And I’ve always done that in my career, and I’ll continue to do that and whatever happens, happens. If we win a championship, cool. If we don’t, I’m OK with that too and life goes on.”...
    OLE GUNNAR Solskjaer was sacked by Manchester United after a horror run of five defeats in seven games. He becomes the FOURTH manager to try - and fail - to replace Sir Alex Ferguson after his retirement in 2013. 5 5Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked after losing 4-1 to WatfordCredit: PA David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho were all sacked in the past eight years, and now Solskjaer joins the gang. The bottom line is that he won no trophies, unlike his more recent predecessors Mourinho led United to a Europa League and EFL Cup double in 2017, while Van Gaal lifted the FA Cup in 2016 just days before he was sacked. However Solskjaer's win percentage was surprisingly good. Solskjaer has the third-highest win percentage of ANY manager in United’s history. His record of 91 wins from his 168 games in charge across all competitions is second best in the post-Fergie era - behind only Mourinho. The Norwegian achieved a win rate of 54.2 per cent, behind Mourinho's 58.3 per cent from 144 matches. Most read in...

    In Tuesday's New Jersey and Virginia governor races, Republicans massively outperformed nearly all expectations in results that would have been dismissed as nearly impossible by most observers just a few months ago.  Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin beat former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, after President Biden won there by more than 10 percentage points in 2020.  GOP candidate Jack Ciattarelli early Wednesday morning was leading incumbent Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy by about 1,000 votes with 88% reporting. Biden won that state by nearly 16 percentage points.  "No takes from me tonight about why we lost a Biden +10 state a year after the election - I want to wait for more data and be open to explanations that may not confirm my priors," Democrat activist and "Pod Save America" host Jon Favreau tweeted Tuesday. "But, wow. Not great! We got some real work to do before ‘22 (understatement)."

    NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO's reign at Tottenham came to an end on Monday after just four months. The Portuguese boss was sacked after Saturday's 3-0 drubbing by Manchester United. 2 2Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked by Tottenham this weekCredit: Getty Spurs were booed off the pitch by their own fans and Nuno ultimately paid the price for a shocking start to the season. Nuno left Tottenham with the worst win rate under Daniel Levy since Juande Ramos' poor reign in 2007-08. Espirito Santo won just 47 per cent of his games as Tottenham manager to start the season. That's less than Jose Mourinho (51%), Mauricio Pochettino (54%) and Tim Sherwood (50%) managed before him. And Tim Sherwood won 50% of his games in charge while Andre Villas-Boas had a 55% win rate. The last Spurs boss with a win rate of less than 50% was Harry Redknapp - who won 49% of games in charge from 2008-12.

    Stars without makeup in 2021 15 Highest-Paying Jobs in Construction © Provided by CBS Sports Tom Brady was the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, which has been repeated millions of times over the course of the past 21 years. Brady, who we all know was a former sixth-round pick, devalued the importance of selecting a franchise quarterback in the first round.  Chances are a team will find a more talented quarterback in the first round -- and a much better shot at finding a franchise signal-caller. Thanks to Brady, teams can find that franchise quarterback in the later rounds (even though the chances are slim). Brady isn't the only sixth-round quarterback that has found success in the NFL -- or made a Pro Bowl. Matt Hasselbeck, Marc Bulger, and Tyrod Taylor have carved out nice careers in the league despite their draft status.  These four players have skewed the quarterback win-loss record to new heights, as sixth-round picks in the salary cap era (which started in 1994) have a better win percentage than first-round quarterbacks during...
    MIKEL ARTETA will take on his predecessor Unai Emery for a place in the Europa Leauge final. Arsenal dispatched Slavia Prague 4-0 in their quarter-final second leg while Villarreal saw off Tottenham's conquerors Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 on aggregate. 4 And that set up a mouth-watering semi-final clash between the last two Gunners managers. Villarreal host the first leg on April 29 before Emery heads back to the Emirates a week later. The three-time Europa League winner replaced Arsene Wenger in 2018 but only lasted until November 2019 before getting his marching orders. Arteta, 39, was lured back to North London to take over, leaving his role as Pep Guardiola's assistant at Manchester City while Emery returned to their homeland by landing the Villarreal job. But how are the two Spaniards faring in their roles this season - and who is doing better? On the face of it, the stats are pretty even - both have picked up 26 victories in all competitions. However, Emery, 49, boats a slightly better win percentage at 55 per cent from 47 matches...

    Henry Cavill reveals identity of new beautiful and brilliant love, more celeb romance news Cozy and charming cabins for sale across America Early on Saturday, the Toronto Raptors announced that Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam would join Fred VanVleet on the injury report for their game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The jokes arrived quickly on social media, but it turned out the Raptors weren't starting to tank, they were just giving Gary Trent Jr. center stage. © Provided by CBS Sports The swingman put on a show, pouring in a career-high 44 points on 17 of 19 from the field, as the Raptors cruised to a 135-115 win. Here's everything you need to know about one of the most surprising high-scoring nights of the season. Trent puts on a shot-making clinicTrent burst onto the scene with the Trail Blazers last season in large part because of his ability to shoot the ball. Well against the Cavaliers he put on a shot-making clinic. Obviously he had some easy looks along the way, but you don't go 17 of 19 entirely...
    UCLA has made Final Four history once again — which doesn’t seem particularly fair, considering how often the Bruins have enjoyed making it to the NCAA Tournament’s national semifinal round. This time, however, UCLA isn’t playing the role of unstoppable juggernaut. Mick Cronin’s 2020-21 squad is playing the part of Cinderella. The Bruins are only the second First Four team ever to make the Final Four, and only the fifth 11 seed to accomplish the feat. As we said, it doesn’t seem fair; but the Bruins put the work in to reach this stage of the NCAA Tournament. MORE MARCH MADNESS: Live scores | Updated bracket | TV schedule How did Cronin and Co. get here? Through the NCAA Tournament’s East Region, for starters. First, they overcame a 14-point deficit to fellow First Four opponent Michigan State and beat them 86-80 in overtime. Following that, the Bruins managed to secure an 11-point win over 6-seed BYU, the same team that drove undefeated Gonzaga — whom the Bruins will play next — to the brink in the West Coast Conference...
    Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman. Mandatory Credit: Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The Braves produced an NL MVP in 2020. Could they do it again? There are three extremely promising candidates ready to battle for the award. The 2020 MLB season was as unique as they come, with players rising to meet the challenge of playing during the coronavirus pandemic. For the Braves, it was a season that proved they have some incredible star power to build on over the coming years. Here’s a look at three Braves who have what it takes to compete for the NL MVP award in 2021…Freddie FreemanIt’s been a decade since Albert Pujols won back-to-back NL MVPs, the last time there was a repeat winner. So maybe it’s about time for Freddie Freeman to do it too. Freeman won the NL MVP in 2020 in a landslide over Mookie Betts and Manny Machado. He did it with career-bests in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. He led the NL Braves with 51 runs while adding 13 home runs and 53 RBI. He led baseball...
    Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, Step right up and BET the Mets! That’s what’s been happening regularly at BetMGM sportsbooks this Hot Stove season, as the Mets are the most popular choice to win the 2021 World Series by a wide margin. The Amazin’s account for 24.6 percent of all tickets and 31.2 percent of total money wagered (aka “the handle”) at BetMGM sportsbooks nationwide, more than doubling the runner-up Yankees in both categories. The Yankees have been selected to win the World Series on 12.1 percent of tickets and account for 14.2 percent of the handle. “The Mets are in a big market with lots of fans, and New York made some splashy moves in the offseason by trading for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco,” said Seamus Magee, a sports trader at BetMGM. The Mets opened at 25/1 to win the World Series and their current odds are 12/1. Magee told The Post the Mets have received support at all different odds levels and are still a hot ticket at today’s price. He did say much of the...
    STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Cameron Thomas scored 25 points, Javonte Smart had 22 points and 11 assists, and LSU pulled away down the stretch to beat Mississippi State 94-80 on Wednesday night. Darius Days added 16 points and 11 rebounds and Trendon Watford had 14 points for LSU (12-6, 7-4 Southeastern Conference). Deivon Smith made a layup to cap an 8-2 spurt that trimmed Mississippi State’s deficit to 73-70 with 8 minutes to play.

    January 17, 2021 | 5:00 am In 2020, and in the midst of the full pandemic, the offer of telecommunications services was more attractive to customers than the previous year, mainly in triple play packages, which was reflected in more channels for restricted TV and unlimited calls included. The IFT’s 2020 Comparable Information Report on Plans and Rates for Fixed Telecommunications Services (Double and Triple play) revealed that 60% of the current plans in this modality have more TV channels for users. This percentage represents an advance of five percentage points with respect to the plans of a year before. Likewise, the report reflects that 95% of the packages include unlimited minutes to make calls, a figure that represents an increase of eight percentage points compared to 2019. The report also highlights the advance of six percentage points in the number of fixed internet, fixed telephony and pay television plans in the triple play mode that offer download speeds greater than 50 megabytes. This means that, in 2019, 32% of the plans offered this speed, but in the pandemic...
    (CBSMiami)- As the NFL rolls into its final three weeks of the regular season, the Dolphins remain right in the thick of the playoff picture sitting in the final Wild Card spot with an 8-5 record. The second year for coach Brian Flores and company has been a big step forward and making a playoff appearance for the first time since 2016 would be a great cap to the season. But, the remaining schedule leaves a difficult path for Miami to make the postseason as they face the most difficult final three games of any of their fellow AFC Wild Card hopefuls. First, before we get to the breakdown, let’s acknowledge the fact that it is mathematically still possible for the Dolphins to win the division. However, that is highly unlikely as the Bills would need to lose their final three (@DEN, @NE, vs. MIA) and the Dolphins would need to win their final three (vs. NE, @ LV, @BUF). Now, the Dolphins three remaining opponents have a combined 23-16 record which equates to a .589 winning percentage. The Browns...
