Red Wings announce that forward Thomas Vanek won't return for the rest of today's game against the Rangers after getting hit by a shot at the end of the first period. He's been their best offensive player for stretches this season and also a trade option before the deadline. Pretty significant for Detroit if he's out any length of time.

It's also the third time since 1970 that three Super Bowl-winning starting QBs will play in the conference championships in a single season.

Yordano Ventura was part of an impressive run of starts by Kansas City Royals pitchers in an improbable ALDS series win over the Houston Astros in 2015. Ventura, Edinson Vólquez and Johnny Cueto each struck out eight batters in Games 3, 4 and 5 of that series, one off the franchise record for a postseason game (Dennis Leonard). The Royals faced elimination in Games 4 and 5 of the ALDS, and went on to win the World Series over the New York Mets.

Chelsea lead Hull City after 45 minutes at Stamford Bridge and, inevitably, Diego Costa is the difference on his return to the starting XI. The Spain international swept in Victor Moses' low cross to score his 15th Premier League goal of the season.

Draymond Green talked a lot about the verticality JaVale McGee gives the Warriors. At first I thought he meant defensively, but Draymond insisted that offensive verticality is just as important to creating space. You saw examples of that this morning as Curry and Draymond found JaVale in traffic for dunks.
