  • The Devils dropped their home opener to the Dallas Stars on an overtime goal by Loui Eriksson, 4-3. The Devils jumped ahead and took a 2-0 early lead on goals by Travis Zajac and Zach Parise (both directly set up by Ilya Kovalchuk). Jason Arnott also scored for the Devils. It was Eriksson's second goal of the game, while Brad Richards and Brendan Morrow also connected for the Stars. Kari Lehtonen stopped 27 Devils shots, while Martin Brodeur made 24 saves. The Devils, having gotten a point, head to the nation's capital to take on Washington tonight. For more, check out In Lou We Trust.

  • In the MLB Playoffs, the Cincinnati Reds decided to implode after taking an early lead by making errors and hitting Phillies. The Phillies scored six times in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to beat the Reds, 7-4, and take a 2-0 series lead. The Reds made four errors, and hit three Philadelphia batters. Chase Utley, Jason Werth and Raul Ibanez drove in two for the Phils. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Rick Ankiel hit a ball harder than he will ever hit it, taking a seemingly perfect swing and knocking a Ramon Ramirez fastball into McCovey Cove, as the Braves came back from four down to win in 11 innings, 5-4, to tie their division series at 1. Its the only DS to currently be tied.
