Penguins’ All-Star goalie Jarry to miss start of playoffs

UNDATED (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers without Tristan Jarry, though they haven’t ruled out the All-Star’s return before the end of the series.

Head coach Mike Sullivan characterized Jarry as “day to day” but indicated Jarry would not be available when the best-of-seven series opens in New York on Tuesday. Jarry hasn’t played since being diagnosed with a lower-body injury following a victory over the New York Islanders on April 14.

Casey DeSmith will get the nod when the Penguins head to Madison Square Garden.

— Alex Ovechkin and Aaron Ekblad both practiced on Sunday. Those are excellent developments for the Washington Capitals and Florida Panthers. All signs point to Ovechkin being in the lineup for Game 1 of an Eastern Conference first-round series against the Panthers on Tuesday night after missing the final three games of the regular season with what the team is calling an upper-body injury. And Ekblad, who missed Florida’s final 21 games with a knee injury, seems like he could be back for Game 1 as well.


Former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles gets released by Bears

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have released veteran quarterback Nick Foles.

Foles had one year left on his contract. New general manager Ryan Poles had told reporters he hoped to trade Foles after signing Trevor Siemian to back up Justin Fields.

Foles was third string last year behind Fields and Andy Dalton. He started one game with the other two quarterbacks injured, and threw for 250 yards in a win at Seattle in late December.

Foles was MVP of Super Bowl 52 when he was with Philadelphia. The Bears acquired him from Jacksonville in March of 2020.


Nadal, Djokovic slam Wimbledon ban on Russian players

MADRID (AP) — Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have criticized Wimbledon’s decision to exclude Russian and Belarus players from this year’s tournament following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The two tennis greats said Sunday that Wimbledon had acted unfairly.

Prominent players affected include reigning U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev and French Open runner-up Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who are all from Russia. Nadal says “it’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment with the war.”


104 and no more: Amputee wraps up marathon record quest

UNDATED (AP) — An amputee athlete who inspired people worldwide with her push to set a new world record for daily consecutive marathons has wrapped up her quest. South Africa native Jacky Hunt-Broersma completed her 104th marathon in 104 days on Saturday near her home in suburban Phoenix.

She needed to run at least 102 marathons in 102 days to set an unofficial record. Britain-based Guinness World Records says it’s aware of her attempt and will review the paperwork over the next few months.

The 46-year-old lost her left leg below the knee to a rare cancer. She raised more than $67,000 to help fellow amputees get expensive prostheses.
