EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils, playing stunning team hockey, destroyed the talented Detroit Red Wings last night, 5-2, and are one victory away from winning their first NHL Stanley Cup championship.It was a performance that devasted Detroit coach Scotty Bowman, who has coached five Stanley Cup champions."I was embarrassed and humilitated," Bowman said of his Red Wings, who did not score until late in the third period. "I told my guys at the end of the second period. I told them it starts with the coach and we don't have many answers at this time."

COLLEGE PARK - There are no commemorative T-shirts worn at practice to remind Sasho Cirovski and his Maryland men's soccer team of their controversial loss to Notre Dame in the final of last year's College Cup. There is no new slogan etched onto the walls or scrawled across a whiteboard in the The memory of what happened last December - and the seemingly obvious Fighting Irish hand ball that was missed early in what turned out to be a gut-wrenching, 2-1...

The Washington Capitals awoke yesterday with mixed emotions. It was the day after they had seen their dream of a Stanley Cup championship cut short by the Detroit Red Wings. They found themselves filled with a mingling of disappointment, pride and even compassion for their conquerors.Peter Bondra, the NHL's leading goal-scorer over the past three years, was at home like most of his teammates, sorting out the positives and negatives following a 4-1 loss Tuesday that completed Detroit's four-game sweep.

Yesterday in one sentence: World Cup officiating is probably going to be brutal and will ruin the tournament for some, no matter how deserved Brazil's 3-1 win was . What's on tap today: Mexico vs. Cameroon, noon, ESPN2; Spain vs. Netherlands, 3 p.m., ESPN; Chile vs Australia, 6 p.m., ESPN2. What you'll see: All eyes are on the Spain-Netherlands game, a rematch of the 2010 final. Spain has only reloaded since then, while the Dutch find themselves in something of a transitional phase.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals may want to study the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and emulate them from here on in this Stanley Cup Finals against the Detroit Red Wings.Those Maple Leafs lost the first three games of that series to the Red Wings and came back to win the Cup.So far, only those Maple Leafs pulled off such a feat in the Finals.If the Caps are to win this series, they will have to be the duplicate that accomplishment.Last night, they lost Game 3, when Sergei Fedorov held off Caps defenseman Calle Johansson and got off a shot with 4: 51 remaining in the game that left goalie Olie Kolzig shaking his head.

Are you paying attention to the Stanley Cup Finals? You couldn't write a better script. Bone-jarring checks, fast, wide-open scoring, a game-changing penalty-shot goal. It had it all. Even a fan named Stanley Cup! Neil Riordan Timonium I have paid even less attention to the Stanley Cup than I will to the FIFA World Cup. That would be none. Jim Kirby Columbia Sure, as long as it doesn't conflict with something more important, such as Deal or No Deal or one of those classic O's-Devil Rays matchups.

SAN DIEGO -- Things were looking bleak for Dennis Conner. He lost the first two races of the America's Cup defender finals by a combined 3 minutes 56 seconds and would have lost a third race had it not been abandoned because of a lack of wind.And things got worse. Wednesday, Conner lost to Bill Koch's America3 by 4 minutes 20 seconds to fall into an 0-3 hole in the best-of-13 series."At one point, it looked like we were going to need binoculars to see them," Conner said of America3, which led on 23 of 24 legs in the finals' first three races.

DENVER - Larry Robinson was grilled over the past two days about potential line changes and whether or not it would benefit his New Jersey Devils if he shortened his bench and threw his stars on the ice a little more often. Robinson said he was a true believer in rolling four lines and that in the long run, playing his full lineup would benefit his team most. They'll be no second-guessing now, not when a couple unpredictable defensive-minded heroes emerged for New Jersey during a 2-1 victory over Colorado in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals last night at the Pepsi Center.

DETROIT -- Adam Oates had just been high-sticked near his eye. He was leaning over at mid-ice, not feeling very happy, and all at once he hears someone screaming at him."Bleed, Oatsy, bleed," yelled the voice in the middle of an NHL Eastern Conference playoff game. "I got mad and looked up, and it was Ron [coach Ron Wilson] yelling at me," Oates said. "It was a very stressful situation and there he is yelling and laughing. Heck, it was funny, and I laughed, too."The Washington Capitals never used to laugh.

Legendary Annapolis-based sailor Gary Jobson played a key role as the tactician on Ted Turner's Courageous, which won the America's Cup in 1977. The Baltimore Sun recently interviewed Jobson, now the president of U.S. Sailing and a member of its Hall of Fame, about this year's America's Cup finals, which begin Saturday in San Francisco. Jobson is serving as a television commentator on NBC.   Having been a part of so many past America's Cup races as a competitor, can you ever see yourself trying to compete in the America's Cup again - or has sailing, like other sports, become a younger man's game as the boats get much faster?

The senior shortstop-outfielder led the Greyhounds (12-4) to a 4-1 record last week. Tilley came through offensively and defensively late in a dramatic 9-8 win over No. 14 Mount St. Joseph in the President's Cup semifinal game Saturday. He hit a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to give the Greyhounds the lead and then helped end the game in the bottom of the frame when he turned a double play at shortstop. Tilley batted .436 in the five games, including two home runs, two doubles, eight RBIs, eight runs scored, two stolen bases and a sacrifice fly. Gilman also had wins over Georgetown Prep, McDonogh and St. Paul's early in the week before losing to Archbishop Spalding.

Feeling a little blue Gary R. Blockus The Morning Call In a severely shortened season, health will be more important than ever in the quest to hoist Lord Stanley's Cup. Look for the Blueshirts and Blue Notes to tangle in the final games for hockey's Holy Grail. The Rangers, with newly acquired Rick Nash ready to ride shotgun for Brad Richards, have to be considered the team to beat in the Eastern Conference. With Henrik Lundqvist in goal, there could be no stopping the Broadway Blueshirts.

As the Indiana players hooted and hollered at midfield, celebrating a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday for their eighth NCAA men's soccer championship, the Hoyas began to come to terms with the end of a wondrous season. Goalkeeper Tomas Gomez fell face-first, not a soul within 30 yards. Defender Tommy Muller sat on the field, running through his mind the last-minute header that had struck the intersection of the crossbar and right post. Brian Wiese, who had guided a middling program to a record number of victories and its first College Cup appearance, consoled his players, one by one, from sideline to penalty area.

Players for both Gilman and Mount St. Joseph will be trying to control their emotions Saturday when they meet in a rematch of the inaugural President's Cup final Saturday at Camden Yards. The two long-time Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference rivals will be trying to take in the scene and dwell on the moment at the second-annual event. But the teams will be approaching the game differently. A year ago, Gilman won the President's Cup title but turned around a week later and lost to the Gaels in an MIAA A Conference game.
