  Penguins extend offer to Matt Murray, let Dominik Simon hit free agency Though there was some speculation that the team could leave Murray unqualified, it never did seem very likely.

When the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays face off in the World Series, beginning with Game 1 on Tuesday night (8 p.m. ET, Fox), it will mark a one-of-a-kind oddity in the world of sports.

For the first time (since professional basketball debuted in the 1946-47 season), the cities that won the NBA championship and the Stanley Cup will compete against each other for Major League Baseball supremacy.

Tampa Bay became NHL champions for the second time when the Lightning defeated the Dallas Stars 2-0 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup on Sept. 28. Thirteen days later, on Oct. 11, Los Angeles celebrated the Lakers' 17th NBA championship with a 106-93 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Essentially, the World Series will provide the tiebreaker in crowning 2020's best sports city.

Casting happens all over the world for all different competitions, national and international. And even that is not enouigh and this isnt first time something like this happens. Where do you go from here as a whole team? And the LPL would dominate the World Championship two times in a row.

In fact, only one city has ever won a World Series title plus either an NBA championship or Stanley Cup title in the same year. That city was Los Angeles, which accomplished the feat in 1988 when Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the "Showtime" Lakers won their fifth and final NBA title together before Kirk Gibson memorably helped the Dodgers win their most recent baseball championship.

Former All-Star Wayne Simmonds drawing interest ahead of free agency

  Former All-Star Wayne Simmonds drawing interest ahead of free agency The 32-year-old scored just eight goals in 68 games this past season playing for the New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres after an extremely disappointing finish to the 2018-19 season with the Nashville Predators. Once one of the best power forwards in the entire league, Simmonds was a perennial 30-goal candidate with oodles of physicality and leadership. In 2015-16 he reached a career-high with 32 goals and 60 points, while also racking up 192 hits for the Philadelphia Flyers. That kind of player is difficult to find in today’s game, but even in the case of Simmonds himself, it may no longer exist.

And you could conceivably give Los Angeles the honor twice if you expand your criteria to its immediate metro area. In this case, go back 18 years to 2002 when the Lakers won the NBA championship with Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, and Mike Scioscia managed Tim Salmon, Troy Glaus, Garret Anderson and the Anaheim (now Los Angeles) Angels to their lone World Series title.

Here are some other NBA, NHL and MLB championship rarities:

Canada wins two

1993 remains the only year the country won two of the three championships:

  • Montreal won the Stanley Cup with the Canadiens, and Toronto won the World Series with the Blue Jays.

Same state wins two

On seven different occasions, one state has captured two of the three championships. California did it four times:

  Blackhawks core not happy with Chicago's rebuilding plan Recent moves by the Blackhawks have the teams' core — represented by Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith — unhappy at the squad's potential for contention.The 32-year-old was a key element to the Blackhawks’ advancement into the round of 16 when the team eliminated the Edmonton Oilers in four games two months ago. He tallied four goals and seven points in that series before Chicago fell to the Vegas Golden Knights in the following round.

Quebec City has a venue in the the Videotron Centre, but is the market too small for the NHL ? Ever since the Nordiques left in 1995, Quebec City has been hounding the NHL to get back on its radar. Cavernous BC Place, which hosted the Women's World Cup Final in 2015, would lack something in

Not all sports teams, of course, remain in their original cities, but that doesn't mean some residents of those cities don't maintain allegiances to their former teams even if they are in new locations.

NBA Power Rankings: The way, way too early offseason edition

  NBA Power Rankings: The way, way too early offseason edition Of course the Lakers start on top, but after that things get unpredictable. 1. Lakers (52-19 last season). LeBron James and Anthony Davis won the Lakers one title, and as long as those two are on the roster L.A. is a contender for another. This summer, Davis will opt-out then re-sign, but the challenge is the roster around Davis and LeBron. Markieff Morris and Dwight Howard are free agents; meanwhile, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Rajon Rondo will opt out looking for the bigger payday. Kyle Kuzma is extension eligible.
