A celebration following the Boston Bruins' 1-0 overtime win over the Washington Capitals on Thursday evening took a turn for the rowdy. As Bruins fans celebrated their team's dramatic win, they pushed out a pane of glass that encircles the ice and it fell on David Krejci's head. Each pane reportedly weighs about 125 pounds. Krejci remained on his hands and knees for a few moments before standing up. He did not participate in Friday's practice. "I got a little sore neck but other than that I am good and I'll play tomorrow," Krejci told reporters on Friday.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Clippers' Game 7 celebration started in bits and pieces on the court Sunday as the clock wound closer and closer to zero. Chris Paul barked "Let's go! We goin' finish it!" with 30.2 seconds left in the game. Caron Butler screamed "Yes, yes, yes!" as the final ticks ticked away. And when it was finally over, Mo Williams walked by the scorer's table, muttering "Big win right here, man," immensely pleased that the Clippers had won their first Game 7 in franchise history.

Each year before the Persian New Year of Nowruz, Iranians gather on Southern California beaches to celebrate a festival of fire. It's part party, part cathartic ritual. Participants build small bonfires -- meant to represent all the bad of the previous year -- and then leap over the flames. But on Tuesday night at Dockweiler State Beach, some of them didn't quite clear the fires. Los Angeles Fire Department medics were called out several times to treat people who got burned.

Downtown Los Angeles could really use more public dance sequences. Typically the stuff of choreographed big-screen fantasies that probably haven't been seen in this part of town since Joseph Gordon-Levitt's giddy turn in"(500) Days of Summer,"synchronized public movements just don't pair well with traffic, crowded streets and concrete. Yet there many Angelenos were on Saturday afternoon, twisting to perky instructions from "So You Think You Can Dance" judge Mary Murphy on a broad, inviting chunk of grass that now resides between Grand Avenue and Hill Street.
