Comrie made 33 saves in winning for the seventh time in 10 starts and Kyle Connor scored his team-leading 35th goal late in the second period to lead the Jets to a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. “I think our team did a really good job of just keeping everything the outside,” Comrie said after winning his fourth straight start and improving to 7-2-1. “They did a good job boxing out, collecting rebounds. We have a good team in that locker room and it’s just a pleasure to play behind them.

The Devils will be without a pair of regulars for the final few weeks as the team announced that winger Miles Wood and defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler have been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Wood has missed the majority of the year after undergoing hip surgery following an injury that he suffered in the preseason.  He made his season debut two weeks ago against Montreal and got into two more games after that while spending some time as a healthy scratch as a precautionary measure.  It appears they’re erring on the side of caution with this decision, as the Devils are merely playing out the stretch so there’s no need to risk anything.  Unfortunately for the 26-year-old, he’ll now enter restricted free agency for the final time this summer with not much of a platform year to work off of; he’ll be owed a qualifying offer of $3.5M, which is a high price to pay for someone who maxed out at 25 points in a single season over his current four-year deal.

North Carolina Tar Heels at Duke Blue Devils: Live stream, time, date, betting odds, how to watch

  North Carolina Tar Heels at Duke Blue Devils: Live stream, time, date, betting odds, how to watch Legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski makes his final home appearance as coach of Duke as the ACC champion Blue Devils battle North Carolina on Saturday.Duke (26-4, 16-3 ACC) has already wrapped up the outright ACC title, will be the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament next week and comes into the game having won seven straight.

As for Siegenthaler, his season comes to an end due to a broken hand.  His first full campaign with New Jersey has been a successful one as he has logged more than 20 minutes a game while playing in all but one contest so far.  After being a reserve defender for most of his NHL tenure to this point, this has been a nice turnaround for him.  Siegenthaler would be a strong candidate to play for Switzerland at next month’s World Championships if he is able to recover by then; that tournament begins a little more than a month from now on May 13.

It's Jon Scheyer's time to lead Duke men's basketball. He's ready for the challenge .
Jon Scheyer is the first new Duke men's basketball coach since 1980 with Mike Krzyzewski retiring. It's a job he's ready to handle.“Coach K’s humor sort of surprises people,” said Collins, head coach at Northwestern for the last nine years and a 13-year assistant for Krzyzewski. “He’d always say to players that he was a true inner city Chicagoian, then say about me: ‘He’s not from real Chicago. He’s from the suburbs.’ Then he’d talk about knowing all these city streets and shortcuts. That same joke he’d use with me, he’d use with Jon.
