Seguin OT Goal Keeps Dallas Alive In The Playoff Chase

Follow The Fan: Facebook | Twitter

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The Dallas Stars know they are going to be eliminated from playoff contention in the next couple of days, so being on the ice now is about playing for each other.

Tyler Seguin scored on a power play 20 seconds into overtime, and the Stars staved off elimination by rallying to beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Sunday.

“Every day, we’re going to come in, work hard, and play with pride and play for each other,” Seguin said. “We had a time period there we just weren’t being professionals. We didn’t have enough effort out there and didn’t play for each other. But we want to play with pride and want to finish off the rest of the year work hard and try to win every night.”

A loss to the Devils would have ended the Stars’ playoff chances. But they found a way to win.

Ales Hemsky also scored a power-play goal with 6:36 left in regulation to tie the game and Kari Lehtonen made 20 saves for Dallas, including a stop on a short-handed breakaway attempt by Blake Pietila about a minute before Hemsky tied the game.

“We have to give Kari a lot of credit for covering that one up because if Kari doesn’t make that save, probably the game is over,” Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. “That was big at a big time in the game.”

Seguin got his 25th goal after Devils defenseman Steven Santini was called for cross-checking with 54 seconds left in regulation. New Jersey killed off the 5-on-4 power play, but the Stars scored in OT on Seguin’s shot from between the circles that beat Keith Kinkaid, who made 30 saves in an outstanding effort.

Jamie Benn and defenseman John Klingberg worked the puck along the boards in front of the Dallas bench before Klingberg made a no-look pass to Seguin cutting down the middle for the game winner.

“They were really pressuring Jamie and Klinger and I just tried to find a soft spot skating in,” Seguin said.

The loss was the second in as many nights for the Devils and their 13th in 17 games (2-13-2). It also came just one night after New Jersey’s playoff hopes were extinguished for the fifth straight year in a loss to Carolina.

“We took two penalties there and they capitalized on both of them,” Devils captain Andy Greene said. “We have to do a better job in the offensive zone, create more and get that second goal and work harder. We just can’t hope we get that second one. We have to make sure we will it into the net.”

Blake Coleman , who was born in Plano, Texas, scored his first NHL goal for New Jersey, beating Lehtonen at 11:02 of the first period after blocking a pass by Klingberg.

“I am pretty familiar with a lot of guys in that locker room,” Coleman said. “So guys like Jamie Benn coming up and saying: ‘Congrats’ is pretty special and I will be able to remember that and share with friends and family back home.”

Hemsky tied the game after Devils defenseman Ben Lovejoy couldn’t get the puck out of the zone. Dallas defenseman Stephen Johns found Hemsky in the right circle. His initial shot was blocked by Greene, but the puck came right back to him and he beat Kinkaid between the pads for his fourth of the season.

“I don’t know if they were contained for 55 minutes, they had their fair share of opportunities,” Kinkaid said. “I felt good and we have to be able to get that dagger goal and finish our opportunities.”

NOTES: Greene played in his 700th game, all with the Devils. … Dallas F Curtis McKenzie and Devils D Damon Severson had a short fight late in the second period. … The Devils beat the Stars in overtime earlier this season.

UP NEXT

Stars: At Montreal on Tuesday night for the second-game of five-game road trip, their final games away from home.

Devils: Host the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night in a makeup of a game postponed by snow on March 14.

Friends, Family Grieve Loss Of Arlington High School Baseball Player

Follow CBSDFW.COM: Facebook | Twitter

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Friends and family are grieving the loss of an Arlington high school student and baseball player who was killed in a single-vehicle accident.

As a pitcher for Arlington High School’s baseball team, 18-year-old Clayton Winkles was a popular student looking forward to wrapping up his senior year.

Family friend Walker Johnson couldn’t believe it when he got the news that Winkles crashed his car while driving home.

Johnson believes Winkles fell asleep at the wheel.

“He had a long day. He started the day with a bass fishing tournament and I think he hung out with friends, and then he was just headed home,” said Johnson.

Police say the teen was the only one in his car when he crossed into the opposite lanes and crashed into a tree.

Arlington ISD made counselors available to students before honoring Winkles with a memorial of flowers and his number 11 on the school’s baseball mound.

Johnson and members of Winkles’s church then brought young friends together to comfort each other.

“That sort of loss is heartbreaking, but when you get to see something like this as a product of that it kind of makes the sting a little easier to take,” said Johnson.

A spokesperson for Arlington ISD said counselors will be back on campus when school opens to help students cope with the loss.

WATCH: Chris Chiozza Buries Wisconsin With Three In OT

Ryan Mayer

The final game of Sweet 16 action has given us as college basketball fans pretty much all we could ever ask for in terms of late game drama. It all started with 4:15 left with Wisconsin trailing Florida by 12. The Badgers were able to close the gap down to three with just 6.4 seconds left. Senior guard Zak Showalter decided that he wanted to keep playing just a bit longer and knocked down a three to send the game into overtime.

Then, in the extra period, the Badgers were able to take a five point lead, 78-73, with just 1:40 left. The Gators weren’t done just yet. They battled back and tied the game on a Canyon Barry block of a seemingly wide open layup that then turned into a Chris Chiozza layup on the other end.

Chiozza’s dramatics weren’t done just yet. Following two Nigel Hayes free throws, the Gators trailed 83-81 with just 4 seconds left. That was plenty of time for the junior guard from Memphis, Tennessee as he delivered one of those March moments that will be remembered for some time to come.

The Gators win 84-83 and advance to the Elite Eight for the first time under coach Mike White. They’ll face South Carolina on Sunday afternoon.

Second Time In 3 Months Hulen Mall Has Been Locked Down

Follow CBSDFW.COM: Facebook | Twitter

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – For the second time in just three months, Hulen Mall in Fort Worth was forced to lock down. This time due to police chasing down a robbery suspect.

Police say the pursuit started when officers responded to a robbery call at a nearby Loan Star Title Loans Saturday morning.

According to police, the suspect proceeded to carjack a 2017 burgundy Chevy Trax, which was tracked through an app on the owner’s smartphone.

Police ended up at Hulen Mall where the suspect was tracked. Police say the suspect had a gun from the robbery but did not know if he possessed it inside the mall.

Stores were quickly told to lock up, and employees and shoppers were told to evacuate.

One shopper got separated from her daughter who was shopping in another store.

“I feel kind of sick. Only because she’s in there. I know she’s safe. But it’s kind of nerve-wracking that your child is in there and you’re out here, and you can’t get to her,” said Irene Watson.

Police were able to capture the suspect in what police say was the boiler room of the Macy’s.

In December 2016, Hulen Mall was forced to lock down after police received a call about possible shots being fired. The lockdown ended up being a result of a brawl occurring inside the mall.

In a statement, mall management said, “The incident today occurred 5 miles away from Hulen Mall. However, we took proactive measures to ensure the safety of our shoppers would not be jeopardized.”

Harrison Ford Says He Was Distracted When He Flew Over Plane

Follow CBSDFW.COM: Facebook | Twitter

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Harrison Ford said he was distracted and concerned about turbulence from another aircraft last month when he mistakenly landed on a taxiway at a Southern California airport after flying low over an airliner with 116 people aboard, according to an audio recording released Friday.

“I’m the schmuck who landed on the taxiway,” Ford told an air traffic controller shortly after the near-miss on Feb. 13 at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Recordings of Ford’s conversations with air traffic controllers were released Friday by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The 74-year-old actor was told to land his single-engine plane on Runway 20L, but he instead landed on a parallel taxiway. An American Airlines flight was on the same taxiway, waiting to take off.

A video released last month showed Ford’s Aviat Husky plane from behind as it descends toward the airfield where the American Airlines Boeing 737 is slowly taxiing.

“Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?” Ford asked the air traffic control tower as he landed in the wrong spot.

“Oh. I landed on Taxiway Charlie. I understand now. Sorry for that,” Ford said.

In a phone call with an air traffic controller after the incident, Ford said he “got distracted by the airliner” and also mentioned “big turbulence” from another plane that was landing.

The American Airlines flight, with 110 passengers and six crew members, departed safely for Dallas a few minutes later.

When an air traffic controller told the “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” star to take his time getting the number from his pilot’s license, remarking it isn’t a big deal, Ford responded: “It’s a big deal for me.”

After Ford told the employee his name, the man seemed taken aback and assured Ford he won’t share his phone number with anyone.

Landing on a taxiway, instead of a runway, is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration regulations. The agency’s probe of the incident is still underway, spokesman Ian Gregor said Friday.

Ford’s publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday afternoon.

Ford, who collects vintage planes, has a long record as an aviator. He has had several close calls and a serious accident in March 2015 when he was injured in his World War II-era trainer. It crashed on a Los Angeles golf course after engine failure.

De’Aaron Fox Gives Emotional Interview After Loss To UNC

Ryan Mayer

Lost in all of the ecstasy that results from a last-second game winning shot is just how much agony the opposing team endures. For the Kentucky Wildcats, yesterday was one of those days.

The Wildcats thought they had done enough to keep their season alive at least for a potential overtime period when Malik Monk hit a game tying three pointer with just about 10 seconds left in the game. However, the Tar Heels immediately inbounded the ball, raced up court and found sophomore Luke Maye who knocked down the game winning shot with just o.3 left on the clock.

Following the game, the scene in the Kentucky locker room was understandably a somber one. Point guard De’Aaron Fox couldn’t help but get emotional during a postgame interview.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Fox can be heard saying “This isn’t a locker room that looks like guys don’t care. I love my brothers man,” as he struggles to cope with the loss and continue conducting the interview. This is the kind of emotion from players that fans don’t often get to see. It’s heartbreaking to watch and a reminder of just how tough losses in the tournament can be for these kids.
