Flyers call up top goaltending prospect Carter Hart for first time
12/17/2018 2:16pm

The Philadelphia Flyers have called up top goaltending prospect Carter Hart for the first time. The Flyers, who at 12-15-4 have the worst record in the Eastern Conference, are also bottom in the league in goaltending. Philadelphia has already used five goaltenders this season Brian Elliott, Calvin Pickard, Anthony Stolarz, Alex Lyon and Michal Neuvirth. The group has combined for a league-low .874 save percentage. In a corresponding move, Stolarz was put on injury reserve with a lower-body injury. He is expected to be sidelined two to four weeks. Hart, 20, is in his first season as a pro. Over four-plus seasons with the WHL Everett Silvertips, Hart compiled one of the greatest junior hockey careers ever for a goalie. He is the only player ever to win the CHL Goaltender of the Year Award twice. With the Flyers top AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, Hart is 9-5-2 with a 3.05 GAA and .901 save...

Justin Timberlake is just warming up, and so, it turns out, is Dolan, who is about to commit two hours to an examination -- his critics might call it an autopsy -- of his two decades as the most powerful and polarizing sports figure in the worlds most talked-about town. Bruised vocal cords would actually prevent JT from performing on this night, not that JD, the bandleader of JD & The Straight Shot, planned to stay for the show. Dolan is engaged in too many projects and...

Inside how sports betting went mainstream
12/17/2018 2:16pm

The sports betting landscape in America shifted forever on a Monday morning in May, when the U.S. Supreme Court released a game-changing ruling that put the nation on a path toward widespread legal sports betting. Shortly after 10 a.m. ET, on May 14, the Supreme Court struck down the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which for 26 years had limited legal sports betting to primarily Las Vegas. The interest in the decision was remarkable. SCOTUS had already decided cases on terrorism, immigration and human rights violations in the term, but none of those hot-button issues generated near the public interest that the New Jersey sports betting case did. At SCOTUSBlog.com, the preeminent site covering the Supreme Court, the post announcing the sports betting decision drew nearly double the page views of any other post since last June. As soon as the ruling was released, social media lit up with a mix of excitement and concern....
