NEW YORK - Daniel Paille broke a tie with 3 minutes 31 seconds left in the third period, and the Boston Bruins put the New York Rangers on the brink of elimination with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night. Boston leads the best-of-seven series 3-0 and can advance to the conference finals as early as Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Only three teams in NHL history have rallied from an 0-3 hole to advance. The Bruins trailed 1-0 heading into the third, but defenseman Johnny Boychuk tied it at 3:10 of the period with his fourth of the playoffs.

A two-out single off the bat of Juan Uribe scored Hanley Ramirez and gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead through four innings over the Diamondbacks Monday night. Through the first four innings, Dodger starter Zack Greinke gave up just one hit - and he did not hit a batter. The latter is significant because tonight marks the first series between the two teams since a June 11 contest that featured a benches-clearing crawl. Greinke also started that night, and was hit up near his head late in the game, the pitch that sparked the melee.

Harris English shot a six-under 64 on Friday to open a two-stroke lead in the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tenn., the final event before the U.S. Open next week at Merion. The 23-year-old former Georgia player had never even had a piece of a lead on the PGA Tour until Thursday when he found himself tied with five others, including Davis Love III , after 18 holes. English used a hot putter to roll in five birdie putts, holed out from 181 yards for eagle on the par-4 fifth and had only one bogey to finish the second round at 10-under 130. Shawn Stefani was second after a 65. Paul Haley II and Scott Stallings each shot 68 to reach five under.

Tiger Woods had the lead and was ready to turn the Tour Championship into a runaway Friday. First came a five-wood up the hill on the par-five 15th that narrowly cleared the bunker, hopped onto the green and rolled toward the flag until it stopped just over four feet away. On the next hole, Woods started walking before his shot began its descent to inside four feet. There were so many fans around the 16th green that it was hard to read the video board showing Woods' PGA Tour ranking on putts between four and five feet.
