NHL Playoffs: Ducks Edge Blackhawks, Take 2-1 Series Lead

Bill Smith/NHLI via Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- The Anaheim Ducks edged the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 Thursday night to take a one-game lead in the NHL’s Western Conference Final.

The Ducks’ first goal came from Patrick Maroon 12:55 into the first period. Chicago tied things up minutes later with a goal from Patrick Kane.

But it was a second period goal from Anaheim’s Simon Despres that would be the ultimate difference-maker; that goal gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead they would hold on to for the win.

Anaheim got 27 saves from goaltender Frederik Andersen.

The Ducks lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is Saturday in Chicago.

NBA Playoffs: Warriors Beat Rockets 99-98, Take 2-0 Series Lead

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- The Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets 99-98 Thursday night to take a 2-0 series lead in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 33 points and six assists on the night.

For the Rockets, James Harden had a game-high 38 points, as well as 10 rebounds and nine assists, but it wasn’t enough to fend off Golden State.

“We’re really confident about what we have going on,” Harden said after the loss. “We let two slip away, but now we go back to Houston.”

The series continues with Game 3 on Saturday.

Buffalo Bills Marcell Darues Suspended 1 Game Over Violating Drug Policy

Photo by Phil Ellsworth / ESPN(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- The defensive tackle of the Buffalo Bills, Marcell Dareus, has been suspended for the first game of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Dareus' suspension comes from a May 2014 arrest after a traffic stop in Alabama, where he was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, and later entered a pretrial intervention program that allows the charges to be dropped, ESPN reports.

Dareus' attorney, Rod Giddens, told ESPN on Thursday that Dareus is still on track to complete the intervention program and hasn't faced any setbacks in the process.

"Last year, I made a mistake involving possession of a banned substance," Dareus said in a statement obtained by ESPN. "The NFL's discipline for this conduct is part of the drug policy, and I apologize to my family, my teammates, the entire Bills organization and Bills fans that I will miss one game as a result of my mistake. I will work intensely that week and will be extremely happy to contribute to a win in week two for the Bills."

This will be the second consecutive season that a Bills defensive starter will miss the opener for disciplinary reasons.

Antonio Smith Under Investigation Over “Sexual” Allegation in Texas

Photo by Allen Kee / ESPN Images(RICHMOND, Texas) -- Denver Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith is currently under investigation in Texas over an allegation described by a local sheriff as “sexual in nature.”

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office confirmed on Thursday an investigation into Smith over alleged child abuse allegations.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said a complaint was made against Smith in November and it was "sexual in nature."

"Last night, we became aware for the first time of an allegation involving Antonio Smith," the Broncos said in a statement. "We are now in the process of gathering more information."

Smith has not been arrested, and no charges have been filed.

The 33-year-old defensive end signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Broncos in April. Smith started 16 games last year for the Oakland Raiders, but was released this spring.

Aaron Hernandez Sports New Neck Tattoo That Reads ‘Lifetime’

Joe Faraoni/ESPN Images(BOSTON) -- Former NFL standout Aaron Hernandez is commemorating his life sentence with a new neck tattoo that reads “Lifetime” and another on his hand that prison officials confirmed is gang-related.

Hernandez, 25, who is serving a life sentence after he was convicted in the 2013 killing of his friend Odin Lloyd last month, faced a judge again Thursday in connection with a separate double slaying he is accused of committing in July 2012.

Hernandez is accused of intimidating a witness to that drive-by execution-style slaying.

During his Boston court appearance on Thursday, Hernandez was photographed with the new ink, which several sources said was one of two tattoos he got from jailhouse artists at MCI-Shirley’s Souza Baranowski Correction Center. The tattoos were spotted after a “two-on-one fight” involving Hernandez that the sources called gang related.

The fight landed Hernandez in a segregated cell at the prison’s Special Management Unit, authorities said.

Hernandez was arraigned Thursday on witness intimidation charges connected to the allegation that he shot a former bodyguard, Alexander Bradley, in the head after a night out in Florida and rolled him out of a moving car in an industrial park.

Bradley later told a grand jury that Hernandez shot him to keep him quiet about the July 2012 shooting, sparked when the then Patriots tight end was angry about a spilled drink on the dance floor at a Boston nightclub and he retaliated by waiting for the men to leave the club. He then ambushed them at a red light and opened fire, Suffolk County prosecutors said.

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(TAMPA, Fla.) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning beat the New York Rangers 6-5 in overtime Wednesday night to take a 2-1 series lead in the NHL’s Eastern Conference finals.

Nikita Kucherov was the difference-maker, scoring 3:33 into overtime to give Tampa Bay the win.

NBA Playoffs: Cavs Beat Hawks 97-89, Take Early Series Lead

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers downed the Atlanta Hawks 97-89 in Game 1 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night.

The Cavs’ LeBron James scored 31 points, but after the game James gave a tip of the hat to teammate J.R. Smith, who drained eight 3-pointers – part of a 28-point performance that helped Cleveland take an early series lead.

“You get a guy like J.R. Smith who’s able just to shoot the ball and have the extreme confidence that every time they let it go, it’s going in,” James said.

Game 2 is Friday night in Atlanta.
