Don't blame me for Arsenal missing Top 4 spot - Wenger

Wenger said earlier this year that he would make an announcement about his future before the end of the season, but he has repeatedly ducked opportunities to reveal his intentions. Perhaps only a victory over Chelsea now can save their season, and Arsene Wenger his job. Hector Bellerin put Arsenal ahead in the eighth minute, but when Laurent Koscielny was sent off six minutes later for a reckless challenge on Enner Valencia, Wenger must have feared the worst.

NBA Finals: Warriors strong favorite over Cavs (latest odds, schedule)

But for the third year in a row, the Cavs enter the NBA Finals as the underdog. There was nearly too much historical context to dissect, and so James did what his instincts told him to do.

There's also the caveat that any one of the three posts the Pens hit could have completely changed the outcome of Saturday's game.

NHL nearing record for one-goal games this postseason

Washington is also 9-2 in its last 11 road games. The TV cameras caught a frustrated Karlsson upset with centre Kyle Turris after a power play in the second.
