Homepage, Sports - For the second consecutive week, the New England Patriots played like the 2007 squad. The Pats held veteran QB Kurt Warner to just 30 passing yards (186 total yards for the team) while racking up 514 yards of their own. Matt Cassell had another impressive outing, going 20-36 for 345 yards and 3 touchdowns. Randy Moss, Wess Welker, and Kevin Fault all caught TD’s, while LaMont Jordan had both of New England’s rushing TD’s.
The Patriots playoff hopes are still alive. If the Patriots can win their final game of the season, here are the playoff scenarios:
If the Ravens lose in week 17, the Patriots would take the AFC Wild Card.
If the Jets beat the Dolphins next week, the Patriots would win the hotly-contested AFC East.

Homepage, Sports - David Krejci picked a good time to pick up his first NHL hat trick. His three goals were the difference in a very high-scoring game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs gave B’s tender Tim Thomas a lot of trouble. Though the Bruins were up 5-1 by the early 2nd period, thomas got rocked for 4 more goals in rapid succession. He was swapped out for batterymate Manny Fernandez, who stopped all 13 shots he faced.
With a goal in the second period, Phil Kessel not only hit the 100 career point mark, but he also extended his point streak to 16 games. The Bruins are now 9-1-0 in the last ten games, and are comfortably leading the Northeast division.
Marco Sturm, Marc Savard, and rookie Michael Ryder also contributed goals for Boston.

Concerts, Ticket Sales - After months of speculation about a release date and album title, U2 has finally announced the release of its 12th studio album entitled ‘No Line On the Horizon’. The new U2 album will drop on March 2, 2009. The album features the services of some familiar faces for U2 including Brino Eno and Daniel Lanois.
With the album release date no longer a mystery the next question on fans’ minds is, ‘when can we expect a U2 tour’? While 2009 U2 tour rumors have been floating around no official plans have been revealed and no U2 tickets have gone on sale yet. There is no doubt that a U2 tour will follow the new album. Expect U2 to play some familiar stops including the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, and Madison Square Garden in New York. U2 is also expected to play the new O2 Arena in Dublin.
Homepage, Sports - The Atlanta Hawks seemed to be in control when the 4th Quarter started last night. Kevin Garnett had other plans. KG was only 2-10 shooting from the floor in the first three quarters, but exploded with a dominant 5-5 fourth. In a low-scoring, high-defense game, the C’s managed to drop 29 on the Hawks in the final quarter to seal a 88-85 win. Many sports writers had this game picked out as the most possible streak-ender for the C’s – The Hawks held Boston winless in Atlanta last year in the playoffs.
The win puts the Celtics in a great position to make a run for not only the longest NBA winning streak, but also the best record in NBA history.

Sports - The New York Rangers improved to 22-11-2 last night with a 3-2 overtime win over the Los Angeles Kings. The Rangers win was their 6th OT win out of their last 7 victories. New York held a 2-1 lead before a Kings goal by Dustin Brown sent the game to OT.
Michael Rozsival gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period and would eventually net the game winner in OT as well. Chris Drury opened the scoring for the Rangers with a first period goal.
The Rangers will travel to San Jose to face the Sharks on Saturday 12/20 before returning home to host the Washington Capitals on 12/23 and the New Jersey Devils on 12/27. Rangers tickets are available for all games.
