  Gerrit Cole pulled after just six outs as Red Sox stun Yankees early in AL wild card game In a stunning outcome, Gerrit Cole was hit hard by the Red Sox in the AL Wild Card game. Manager Aaron Bone pulled the ace in the third inning.Thus, we all witnessed something no one could've predicted in the American League wild card game: In the bottom of the third inning, with the Yankees trailing 3-0 and two men on base with no outs, Cole walked off the mound and into the dugout. His night ended after 50 pitches — only 30 were strikes.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Marcus Foligno scored with 7.2 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Minnesota Wild a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Foligno beat Anthony Stolarz between his legs from the slot off a rebound to give the Wild a win in their season opener after dramatically remaking their roster, including buying out franchise stalwarts Ryan Suter and Zach Parise.

“I just got lucky,” Foligno said. “It went through Stolarz’s legs, and it got us the win”

Kevin Fiala had a power-play goal and Cam Talbot made 28 saves for Minnesota.

Jakob Silfverberg scored on the power play for the Ducks, and Stolarz made 41 saves.

Canadiens' Jonathan Drouin out with non-COVID illness

  Canadiens' Jonathan Drouin out with non-COVID illness A non-COVID-related illness will prevent Jonathan Drouin from playing in Thursday's preseason game.While the team hasn’t given any further information on Drouin’s health, a preseason absence from a guaranteed roster player usually isn’t too much to worry about. With the Habs already entering the season with a depleted roster, the full health of their players is of utmost priority right now, so Drouin’s absence can best be predicted as precautionary.

Foligno registered his first OHL point, an assist, in a 6– 1 win over the Erie Otters on September 26, 2004. Nick Foligno ' s younger brother, Marcus, was drafted by the Sabres in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He currently plays for the Minnesota Wild . The two brothers also have two sisters, Lisa and Cara. In the summer of 2009, Foligno lost his mother, Janis, to breast cancer.[19] He is an avid supporter of cancer patient care and research at Roger's House, the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and the Ottawa Hospital Foundation.[20]

Foligno is perhaps best known for his trademark jump, dubbed the " Foligno Leap", after scoring a goal . Foligno has worked as an assistant coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche, Anaheim Ducks ^ "Senators rookie brings back father' s ' Foligno Leap' in 4-3 win over Canadiens".

“Obviously a super tough loss,” Silfverberg said. “It’s going to sting tonight, for sure. Not the way you want the game to end. I think we fought all throughout the game, maybe not our best game, but (Stolarz) was coming up huge for us in the net.”

Fiala tied it up 1-1 at 17:35 of the second period, chipping in Mats Zuccarello’s pass through the crease. Zuccarello took over on the top power-play unit because Joel Eriksson Ek briefly went back to the dressing room.

“If we come out of that game and we have looks and stuff, maybe we say the same things we did in Game 1 and 2 last year, where, yeah, we had looks but you got to score,” Wild coach Dean Evason said. “The power play’s job is to score goals. We scored one, we had great looks.”

Silfverberg scored on a wraparound 17 seconds into the second to put the Ducks ahead 1-0, continuing Anaheim’s early turnaround on the power play. After scoring just three goals with the man advantage in 28 home games during the abbreviated 2020-21 campaign, the Ducks are 3 for 9 on the power play in their first two games on home ice this season.

Jets assign 2020 first-round pick Cole Perfetti to AHL

  Jets assign 2020 first-round pick Cole Perfetti to AHL Perfetti played in 32 games with Manitoba last season when the OHL campaign was canceled and actually did quite well. Despite being younger than almost all of his opponents, the 2020 first-round pick racked up 26 points in 32 games for the Moose. Now he’ll get the chance to build on that performance and continue his professional career, instead of returning to the OHL where he had already proved his dominance. Perfetti made the Jets lineup out of camp but was a healthy scratch on Tuesday night as Winnipeg decided to go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen against the Minnesota Wild.

Their latest win came against an Anaheim Ducks team that had handed them one of their two regulation losses this season. T. Brown scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period, leading the Lightning to a 2 - 1 victory Sunday night for their fourth straight win . Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for Tampa Bay and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 shots. "It was definitely a goaltending duel tonight," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. Anaheim goalie John Gibson had 35 saves and was put under almost constant pressure, particularly in the first two periods when the Lightning outshot the Ducks

But Anaheim failed to take advantage of opportunities on special teams in the third period, and Silfverberg said it came back to haunt them.

“We had some chances at the end, especially in the power play with a couple empty nets, but we couldn’t seem to find the back of the net,” Silfverberg said. “Then that happens with 7 seconds left. That’s obviously nothing that we wanted, and that’s obviously really tough right now.”

The Ducks’ lone goal came after Foligno and Ducks winger Max Jones got into a scrap late in the first period. Both players received fighting penalties and a 10-minute misconduct, but Foligno was also assessed a minor for interference to give Anaheim the valuable man-advantage.

“I could have had a bucket of popcorn and sat with you guys (in the press box) and watched the second period, and came back down for the third,” said Foligno, who had 17 penalty minutes and played 13:11.

Ducks' Max Jones to undergo surgery on torn pec, expected to miss four to six months

  Ducks' Max Jones to undergo surgery on torn pec, expected to miss four to six months Four months would have Jones returning near the end of February, but that potential six-month timeline could keep him out basically the whole season. It’s a brutal situation for the 23-year-old former first-round pick, who has had trouble establishing himself at the NHL level but had arguably his best stretch of hockey at the end of last season. He ended the year with seven goals and 11 points in 46 games, reaching 100 hits for the first time and leaning into his role in the bottom-six.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores late as Manchester United edge Villarreal 2 - 1 in their Champions League group stage match.

It was the first goal in eight games as a Duck for Fleury, who was acquired from Carolina at the trade deadline, and he has points in consecutive games after picking up an assist in the 3- 2 win over the Kings on Wednesday. Both teams created plenty of chances as they picked up where they left off from a compelling 3- 2 late win by the Ducks on Wednesday, but Gibson I love talking to my girlfriends about our wildest sexual fantasies. For example, one of my closest friends told me she has a fantasy about Albert Einstein going down on her… And my neighbor told me she'd love to sleep with Bill Gates.

GIBSON OUT

Ducks G John Gibson did not play after sustaining a lower-body injury in the season opener on Wednesday. Gibson was hurt in a collision with Winnipeg Jets forward Andrew Copp in the third period of Anaheim’s 4-1 win. With Gibson unavailable, Lukas Dostal was recalled from the AHL to back up Stolarz.

GOOD START

Wild F Brandon Duhaime, a fourth-round draft pick in 2016, had three shots and played 9:01 in his NHL debut. Evason noted that Duhaime’s only slip-up came when he stepped on a puck and stumbled during his solo lap in warmups. “He played terrific and just goes about his business,” Evason said.

GAME NOTES

Kings reportedly seeking trade for depth right-shot defender .
With Drew Doughty out for at least the next eight weeks due to a knee contusion and Sean Walker out for the rest of the season after tearing his ACL and MCL, the defensive depth for the Kings has certainly taken a hit, particularly on the right side.  To that end, Pierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic reports in the latest TSN "Insider Trading" segment that Los Angeles is looking to add a depth right-shot defender at a minimum.
