Champions! Panthers capture team’s first Stanley Cup with Game 7 win over Oilers

SUNRISE — In 1996, the Panthers introduced South Florida to the “rat trick” during their first Stanley Cup Final run. In 2023, Florida showed off a new generation of stars like Aleksander Barkov, Matthew Tkachuk and Carter Verhaeghe before losing to Vegas in the Final. But 2024 is when the Panthers reached the summit of the hockey world, lifting the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. They needed to get past rival Tampa Bay, which held its three Stanley Cup titles over their little brothers’ heads for years. They needed to beat Boston and New York, whose fans frequently filled...

Dave Hyde: A Game 7 like no other as Panthers try to make history — and avoid some, too

It keeps building. Everything around this game that wasn’t supposed to happen. The fun, the stakes, the interest, the nervousness — certainly the nervousness, locally, as the Florida Panthers play Edmonton in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night in Sunrise. Hockey hasn’t had a championship night like this in South Florida, not ever, not in a market that gave away tickets for years and began play just three decades ago under the localized marketing campaign, “Good hockey, great air conditioning.” It wasn’t supposed to have this night, either, after the Panthers won the first three...

System in Gulf likely to bring heavy rain, flooding to Mexico and Texas

An area of stormy weather in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico could still become a tropical depression this weekend before reaching the coast of northeastern Mexico on Sunday night, forecasters said. The large area of showers and thunderstorms over the southwestern Gulf lacked a well-defined center by Saturday evening and its odds of developing have decreased since earlier in the week. However, heavy rain is likely to cause flooding in parts of southeastern Mexico and southern Texas regardless through the end of the weekend, the National Hurricane Center said Saturday. It is expected to drift...

Marlins no match for Mariners as Gilbert pitches eight scoreless innings for second start in row

MIAMI (AP) — Logan Gilbert pitched eight scoreless innings for the second straight start and the Seattle Mariners beat the Miami Marlins 9-0 on Saturday. Gilbert (5-4) scattered four hits, struck out six and was aided by three double-play grounders, lowering his ERA to 2.71. The 27-year-old right-hander walked one, ending a string of three straight outings without allowing a base on balls. With 92 pitches, Gilbert felt strong enough to pitch the ninth for his second career complete game but accepted the decision to lift him. “I understand they have our best interests in mind,” Gilbert said....

Israeli Airstrikes Hit Gaza City; Casualties Are Reported

Israel said Saturday it was investigating an airstrike in Muwasi, in the southern Gaza Strip, after the International Committee of the Red Cross said that “heavy-caliber” projectiles fell meters away from an office and residences for the aid group.

William Schomburg, leader of the Red Cross operation in Gaza, did not blame the Israeli military or Hamas but said all parties to the conflict were aware of the Red Cross’ buildings south of a zone designated as “safer”...

Oilers tie Stanley Cup Final, force Game 7 with 5-1 win over Panthers

The Panthers are on the verge of making history, but it is not the kind of historic accomplishment they were hoping to achieve. After taking a 3-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final, Florida has lost three straight games, setting up a decisive Game 7 in Sunrise after it lost 5-1 to Edmonton at Rogers Place on Friday. The Panthers are now at risk of becoming only the second team to lose the Stanley Cup Final after taking a 3-0 lead in the series. The 1942 Detroit Red Wings are the only NHL team to lose a Final after taking a 3-0 lead. The Toronto Maple Leafs, who won that series, are one of...
