There are some people in the world who just don't get it. In their desire to be clever, they don't look at the big picture. The Toronto Maple Leafs have one such fan. Several hundred Maple Leafs fans gathered at Maple Leaf Square outside the Leafs' home arena Monday night as their favorite team took on the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. Most fans were wearing Maple Leafs jerseys and carrying handmade signs supporting their team. But one sign stood out in particular: a sign that said "Toronto Stronger," a play on words off the “Boston Strong” motto that has been used in Boston as a rallying cry after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Pluses Teams across the NHL paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in many ways, including holding a moment of silence, players writing "Pray for Boston" on a stick or skate, and the Bruins and Buffalo Sabres joining to salute the crowd with raised sticks on Wednesday. In a touching gesture, Phoenix defenseman Keith Yandle - a Boston native - wore a jersey in warmups Saturday with the name of 8-year-old bombing casualty Martin Richard on the back. Calgary goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff, expected to retire after the season, was serenaded by fans after the Flames' home finale Friday.

Boston Bruins broadcaster Jack Edwards was not just critical of Penguins left wing Matt Cooke, he went so far as to compare him to an assassin. While it's true that Cooke had a reputation as a player who took cheap shots at opponents and has been blamed for ruining the career of Marc Savard with a blindside hit that gave him a concussion, he was neither penalized nor fined for that hit. Savard, who played for several seasons with the Bruins, has struggled with concussions since Cooke's hit and has not played since 2011 because of post-concussion syndrome.

The Bruins and the Red Sox, Boston-based professional sports teams with home games that had been scheduled for Friday, postponed competition as authorities searched for and apprehended a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. Regional rail and bus systems were closed part of the day after Gov. Deval Patrick urged residents of Boston and nearby areas to avoid going out in public. Many fans use mass transit to attend hockey games at TD Garden and watch the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

BOSTON -- Hockey fans filled the streets around TD Garden, streaming into the athletic complex as they passed vendors selling T-shirts that read "Boston Strong Never Forget" with the date of the bombings. Half a dozen Homeland Security vehicles lined the front of the adjacent federal building and a handful of U.S Air Force personnel patrolled the grounds. Police were stationed at multiple street corners across the street. An American flag was wedged in the skate of the Bobby Orr statue out front of the arena.

BOSTON -- With a defiant and colorful cry, a Red Sox slugger sparked a cathartic release from Boston baseball fans after emotional pregame tributes to the victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings Saturday at Fenway Park. For a sports-mad city trying to regain its sense of normalcy, the mantra “Boston Strong” was necessarily joined with another familiar refrain, “Play ball,” as the Red Sox played their first home game since the marathon attacks. A commemoration before the Royals took on the Sox began with a montage of images of the week's events set to Jeff Buckley's somber rendition of "Hallelujah.

The Red Sox return to play Saturday at Fenway Park in Boston with a day game against the Kansas City Royals, one day after the capture of the second suspect in the bombings at the marathon Monday. The Red Sox's home uniforms will feature the city's name instead of their nickname across their chests. The famed Green Monster, Fenway Park's 37-foot-high wall in left field, is emblazoned with the "B Strong" logo that stands for Boston Strong. Players will wear a B Strong patch on the front of their jersey just above their hearts.

The New York Rangers' success has been the big story in the East, and rightfully so. The Philadelphia Flyers draw attention thanks to quirky goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov , who can be riveting or terrifying. And most hockey observers have narrowed the most-valuable-player contenders to Flyers winger Claude Giroux , Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist and Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin . In the meantime, another East team has been positioning itself for a strong playoff run. The defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, almost written off after a 3-7 start and later plagued by inconsistency, have quietly won four of five games and solidified their hold on the No. 2 seeding.

Calculating the number of points between the Ducks and playoff elimination has been overheating the NHL's computers, which must account for dozens of possible scenarios that can be spawned by three-point games. But it's clear the end is near for the Ducks, a fate hastened by their 3-2 loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins at Honda Center. Their performance on Sunday was much like their season: moments of brilliance mixed with costly errors they couldn't overcome.
