Stanley Cup: Blackhawks-Bruins

The Blackhawks are one win away from a Stanley Cup championship thanks to two goals from Patrick Kane in Game 5. However, injury concerns to a star player on each side -- Patrice Bergeron for Boston and Jonathan Toews for Chicago -- create an interesting sub-story to Game 6. What impact will the injuries have on the series? Will Chicago wrap it up in Game 6 or will the Bruins bounce back and treat sports fans to another Game 7?

If both Bergeron and Toews play, which team wins Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals?

NBA Finals: Game 7

The Miami Heat came back in grand fashion against the San Antonio Spurs in one of the most exciting postseason games in recent memory. LeBron James lost his headband and caught fire (metaphorically), Ray Allen hit another clutch 3-pointer, Chris Bosh had a number of key blocks in overtime, and the Heat are alive for another day. With such a dramatic end to Game 6, it's almost absurd that both teams have to play again -- but play again they must, in Game 7 in Miami.

Broncos release Willis McGahee

The Broncos released Willis McGahee on Thursday, leaving the 31-year-old running back in search of a team as training camp starts up. McGahee rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2011, but injuries limited him to 10 games and a little more than 700 yards last season. There is no shortage of rushers on the Broncos -- they'll have to decide between Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball -- but sending off a veteran like McGahee isn't something a team does lightly.
