    JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — Parties to the peace deal ending South Sudan’s devastating civil war have again delayed the country’s first elections since independence by extending the transitional period by two years. The vote meant for early next year has been pushed to December 2024. The United States, Britain and Norway shortly before Thursday’s announcement in the capital, Juba, warned in a letter to President Salva Kiir they wouldn’t send their top diplomats because they believed that not all parties to the peace deal had been consulted. The countries are known as the Troika for South Sudan. The new plan “must demonstrate how another extension would differ from the previous ones and include steps for clear progress in setting up the institutions and mechanisms necessary to hold elections,” said the letter seen by The Associated Press. In explaining the latest delay, South Sudan’s president said he wanted to avoid creating conditions for more bloodshed. “I am not extending the transitional period because I want to stay in the government longer. I do not want to rush you into an...
    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Ondrej Palat scored with 42 seconds left and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Sunday to cut their deficit in the Eastern Conference finals to 2-1. Palat’s goal, off a nifty pass from Nikita Kucherov, capped a comeback that began after Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider scored power-play goals in a span of just over two minutes in the second period to put the Rangers up 2-0. Facing the prospect of falling behind 3-0 in a series that began with a pair of losses on the road, the Lightning rallied with Kucherov scoring on the power play in the second period and Steven Stamkos blistering a shot past goalie Igor Shesterkin from the left circle early in the third. Game 4 is Tuesday night, with New York still in a position to move within one victory of its first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals since 2014. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 28 saves for the Lightning. Artemi Panarin had two assists for the Rangers, and Adam Fox...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Danton Heinen’s first playoff goal in three years just past the midway point of the third period broke a tie to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 7-4 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference series. Pittsburgh blew a three-goal first-period lead but recovered behind the play of third-string goaltender Louis Domingue and Heinen, who jumped on a loose puck near the New York goal line and flicked a shot by Alexandar Georgiev 11:02 into the third to put the Penguins in front to stay. Game 4 is Monday night in Pittsburgh. Evan Rodrigues had two goals and assisted on another for the Penguins, who won despite any member of the top line of Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust not recording a point until Guentzel’s empty-netter with 2:14 to play sealed it. Jeff Carter also scored twice for the Penguins while Brock McGinn started the scoring on a wild night with his first goal of the playoffs. Domingue made 32 saves and even...
    MONTREAL (AP) — Erik Haula scored twice and the Boston Bruins beat Montreal 5-3 Sunday night as the Canadiens paid tribute to the late Guy Lafleur. The Canadiens celebrated the Hall of Famer, who died Friday at age 70, with a ceremony before the game. A video of Lafleur’s goals and of him lifting the Stanley Cup played at the Bell Centre before fans gave him a standing ovation that lasted more than 10 minutes. Canadiens players saluted Lafleur’s retired No. 10 following the final buzzer. On the boards, the usual ads were replaced by a simple tribute to Lafleur — listing his name, his number, his signature and the years of life: 1951 to 2022. Boston’s Patrice Bergeron had two goals, including an empty-netter, and an assist. Charlie McAvoy scored the eventual winner. Jeremy Swayman made 23 saves. Josh Anderson, Mike Hoffman and Nick Suzuki scored for Montreal. Jeff Petry had two assists and Samuel Montembeault made 37 saves. Bergeron opened the scoring for Boston by tapping a loose puck into an open net. He passed Raymond Bourque and...
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Justin Danforth scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period, Elvis Merzlikins stopped 47 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 Tuesday night to end a seven-game skid. Sean Kuraly added an empty-netter for Columbus in the final seconds. The Blue Jackets last won March 19 and let their playoff hopes all but disappear over the last three weeks. The game was full of firsts for two teams who have gone with a youth movement as they play out the string and wait for the season to mercifully end. Brendan Gaunce scored his fifth goal of the season thanks to Carson Meyer’s first NHL assist. Meyer then beat Carter Hart off a 2-on-1 rush for his first career goal with 6:37 left in the first period. Meyer grew up in suburban Columbus, played at Ohio State and skated in his first NHL game a night earlier in an overtime loss against Boston. He was the eighth Blue Jacket to make his NHL debut this season. “Just the chance to put on that...
    SAN JOSE – Goalie Kaapo Kahkonen got an opportunity to start his first career game at home on Saturday as a member of the Sharks, a chance to pick up his victory in teal after a mostly solid outing two days earlier. Kahkonen’s night lasted 20 minutes, as he was the victim of some shoddy defensive play in front of him and perhaps his own momentary lapse in concentration in a four-goal first period for the Dallas Stars. James Reimer came on in relief of Kahkonen to start the second period but the damage had been done, as the Sharks were unable to overcome a three-goal deficit in what became a 5-4 loss to the Stars at SAP Center. Nick Bonino, Brent Burns, John Leonard and Sasha Chmelevski all scored and Reimer finished with 14 saves as the Sharks lost their third straight game. Leonard and Chmelevski scored 3:14 apart late in the third period to draw the Sharks to within one goal, but they could not get any closer. Kahkonen allowed four goals on 14 shots in the opening...
    DENVER (AP) — Devon Toews scored with 4:26 remaining, Darcy Kuemper stopped 38 shots and the Colorado Avalanche tied the franchise record for most home wins in a season with a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. It was win No. 28 at Ball Arena, matching Colorado’s marks from 2000-01 and 2017-18. At 28-4-3, Colorado possesses the league’s top home record. Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Mikko Rantanen also scored for Colorado in a fast-paced game that had just one penalty and featured two of the best scorers in the business, Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon. Mike Matheson and Crosby had goals for the Penguins. Crosby’s goal gave him 1,397 career points — one point away from joining Jari Kurri and Alex Ovechkin in a three-way tie for 21st-most in NHL history. Toews knocked in a shot 27 seconds after Matheson tied it up at two. Soon after, Darren Helm drew a holding penalty but the Avalanche were able to weather the Penguins’ power play. They also withstood a final push when the Penguins pulled goaltender Tristan Jarry...
    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Brock Nelson scored his career-high 32nd goal, Semyon Varlamov made 42 saves and the New York Islanders held off the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 on Tuesday night. Josh Bailey, Anthony Beauvillier and Zach Parise also scored as the Islanders snapped a two-game skid. New York moved within two points of Columbus in the standings, but both teams are well behind Washington for the last Eastern Conference wild-card spot. Vladimir Gavrikov scored twice for Columbus, which lost its fourth straight. Oliver Bjorkstrand also scored and Elvis Merzlikins stopped 25 shots. The Blue Jackets played without coach Brad Larsen, who went into COVID-19 protocol earlier Tuesday, along with assistant Steve McCarthy.

    SAN JOSE – Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson was in the offensive zone in the second period when he saw winger Rudolfs Balcers streaking toward the Colorado Avalanche net. Karlsson then hit him with a tape-to-tape pass, but the redirection by Balcers bounced harmlessly off the post. Later in the period, Karlsson sprung Alexander Barabanov for a breakaway chance. Barabanov, though, flat out missed the net from about 15 feet away. The missed chances proved costly, as the Sharks rallied back from a four-goal deficit with goals Jeffrey Viel, Balcers and Karlsson, but lost 5-3 at SAP Center Jeffrey Viel’s second-period goal snapped a 146:32 goalless drought for the Sharks, and Balcers and Karlsson both scored in the third The Sharks allowed a power-play goal to Nazem Kadri and even strength markers to Darren Helm, Cale Makar and Valeri Nichushkin in what became their third straight loss.

Unless forward Jonathan Dahlen gets hot, it appears the Sharks will only have three 20-goal scorers this season in Timo Meier and Tomas...
    The Miami Heat took the middle ground Saturday night at FTX Arena. They gave Jimmy Butler the night off to rest a chronically sore toe. But they also pushed as if it was a game with significant stakes. Ultimately, the Heat’s offense failed them in the second half, as they fell 113-104 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. From a 42-point second quarter, the Heat dropped off to a 19-point third quarter and an 18-point fourth. Against a surging opponent, that rarely is going to get it done. No, a loss to a Western Conference opponent is not as costly when it comes to playoff tiebreakers. And yes, Butler now has until Tuesday night’s visit by the Detroit Pistons to regain his needed footing. But, still, there rarely is comfort when a 17-point lead is squandered, taking much of the edge off Markieff Morris’ long-awaited return. “They made more plays down the stretch,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Unable to make needed plays late, the Heat lost for the second time in three games. While there were 30 points from Tyler Herro...

But they also pushed as if it was a game with significant stakes. Ultimately, it went to the wire, before falling 113-104 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. No, a loss to a Western Conference opponent is not as costly when it comes to playoff tiebreakers. And yes, Butler now has until Tuesday night’s visit by the Detroit Pistons to regain his needed footing.

Unable to make needed plays late, the Heat lost for the second time in three games. While there were 30 points from Tyler Herro and a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double from Bam Adebayo, as well as 19 points from Max Strus, it was a night when the Heat needed more than 4-of-12 shooting from point guard Kyle Lowry.

It was a better third and it was a good response after they got their second goal.” Leon Draisaitl had two goals for the Oilers, who dropped their fourth straight game. “I think the last two games probably could have gone either way,”...
    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Matt Grzelcyk scored his first goal of the season in the final minutes of the third period, and the Boston Bruins snapped a two-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk also scored for the Bruins. Leon Draisaitl had two goals for the Oilers, who dropped their fourth straight game. The Bruins got the game’s first goal with 3:45 left in the first period as Patrice Bergeron sprung Marchand on a short-handed breakaway, and he made no mistake putting his 10th goal of the season past Oilers goalie Stuart Skinner. Boston took a two-goal lead two minutes into the second period on the power play as DeBrusk was left alone in front and scored his fifth. Edmonton fans thought the Bruins should have been assessed a penalty on the play after a trip prevented the Oilers from clearing the zone. Edmonton closed within a goal with just under two minutes to play in the middle period, taking advantage of a man advantage. Draisaitl sent a one-timer...

    SEATTLE (AP) — Marcus Johansson beat Frederik Andersen with a wrist shot with 3:08 remaining, Philipp Grubauer made 35 saves and the Seattle Kraken beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Wednesday night. Seattle won its second straight to close out a six-game homestand and handed the red-hot Hurricanes just their third regulation loss of the season. It was the second straight setback for Carolina after losing to San Jose in overtime Monday night. Seattle’s Jared McCann scored on the power play at 4:16 of the second period and Johansson provided the winner in the closing minutes. Johansson circled the net, and his shot buzzed over Andersen’s left shoulder. It was Johansson’s second goal of the season and gave Seattle its first win this season when trailing after the first period. Brendan Smith gave Carolina an early lead at 18:32 of the first period when his slap shot from the point slipped past Grubauer, who was screened in front by Jordan Staal.

    OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Steven Stamkos scored his sixth goal of the season to break a tie midway through the third period and Ondrej Palat added the game-winner as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Ottawa Senators 5-3 on Saturday. Victor Hedman, Jan Rutta, and Anthony Cirelli also scored for the Lightning and Brian Elliott stopped 24 shots. Connor Brown, newly appointed captain Brady Tkachuk, and Logan Shaw scored for Ottawa and Matt Murray made 29 saves. Stamkos was left alone at the side of the net as Victor Mete had a defensive breakdown and buried the loose puck. Shaw tipped in a goal late in the game, but Cirelli added an empty-net goal to seal it. Trailing 1-0, Brown tied the game for Ottawa early in the second on a fantastic effort at the end of a long shift. Brown forced a turnover inside the zone, drove to the net and beat Elliott up high.

    Spanning the roster to decide which player should be next in rotation during a shootout, Vegas Golden Knights coach Peter DeBoer deferred to assistant Ryan Craig, who suggested Evgenii Dadonov. "Some of the analytics had other guys ahead of him," DeBoer said. "His name came up and Ryan said he scored two games in a row. He has historically been a streaky scorer, so we put him out there." And he delivered. Dadonov’s winner followed Nic Roy’s goal in the shootout and the Golden Knights survived a scare to beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-4. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM It was Vegas’ third straight win after opening the season 1-4-0, including an overtime win at Dallas on Wednesday, when Dadonov also buried the game-winning goal. "I just went in there, try to keep eye on the goalie, what he try to do, and find the hole to shoot," said the 32-year-old Dadonov, who celebrated his first shootout score. Reilly Smith, Nic Hague, Chandler Stephenson and William Carrier scored in regulation for the Golden Knights, who were playing...
    The San Jose Sharks on Tuesday were unable to finish their first long road trip of the season on a positive note. Playing their fifth game in eight days, the Sharks were down a goal after the first 80 seconds of the opening period and were forced to chase the game from there in a 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena. Timo Meier scored his fourth goal of the season at the 11:54 mark of the third period to cut the Predators’ lead to one. But the Sharks were unable to get a second goal against Predators goalie Juuse Saros, who had 28 saves to improve to 5-2-1 in eight career games against San Jose. Six of Saros’ saves came on the penalty kill, as the Sharks are now 1-for-11 on the man advantage over the last four games after they were 4-for-9 in their first two. Filip Forsberg also scored for Nashville on goalie James Reimer as the Sharks finished the five-game road trip with a 3-2-0 record. San Jose started the...
    The Sharks fell from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday after they failed to start on time in a matinee at TD Garden in Boston. Playing their fourth game in six days on a season-opening road trip, the Sharks allowed first-period goals to Brad Marchand, Derek Forbort, and David Pastrnak and never fully recovered in a 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins. Down 4-1 in the third period, Tomas Hertl and Timo Meier both scored in a span of 1:49 to draw the Sharks within one goal with 4:52 left in regulation time. But the Sharks couldn’t get the equalizer as they suffered their first loss in five games this season. Pastrnak’s goal at the 16:12 mark of the first period gave the Bruins a 3-0 lead and marked the first time this season that the Sharks had allowed a power-play goal after killing the first 10 man advantage tries. San Jose (4-1-0) got that one back just 32 seconds later as rookie center Jasper Weatherby beat Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark from a sharp angle for...
