Curry has missed 13 straight games since suffering from a Grade 2 left MCL sprain on March 23.

As much as Nazem Kadri wanted badly to be in the Maple Leafs lineup for Games 2 through 4, he took a keen interest in what he was watching as the Leafs and Boston Bruins clashed without him. The Maple Leafs had a solid season, but I feel that it will come to an end in this one. But the Bruins managed to grind through some of the more hard points of the game while keeping it a low-scoring affair, and then gashed the Leafs defense in the final 25 minutes of the game for a 3-1 win at Air ...

It should be noted that 16-time Grand Slam champion Nadal is bidding for an 11th Monte Carlo title and a record 31st Masters title. That excites me to get out on Saturday and play my match, simple as that. "Ideally I'd want to be playing the way I played for so many years", the former world number one, now ranked 13, said.

If they feel they want the first pick of all the quarterbacks - they can try to trade up. Benjamin Albright , an analyst I trust more than most, has linked the Jets to Mayfield often. 9, a pick after the Bears took Smith. Could Darnold fall to the Jets? Wouldn't that be something? If Josh Allen goes first, the guess here is the Giants take Sam Darnold at No.
The 26-year-old, who won the Cincinnati Masters and the ATP Tour Finals last season, threw away an early break in the third set, but quickly refocused to finish off the spirited Herbert.

That is largely because of a plethora of draws: Arsenal drew 12 games and won 26, finishing with 90 points. Guardiola himself said last week that repeating this season's achievements would be "impossible". "It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season".

A surfer mauled by a shark Monday off southwestern Australia managed to swim to shore despite serious injuries to both of his legs, an official and a witness said. So while time will tell exactly what happens with the Margaret River Pro, something worth thinking about for the WSL is to maybe, just maybe, not run a surfing event when shark activity is highest?

NEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Apr 16- Arsene Wenger admits he finds Arsenal's away form "baffling" after they suffered yet another defeat on the road at Newcastle United . Fatalism. Futility.
