    Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

    — Late night Tuesday had a lot of fun baseball stuff; A’s/Angels won wild games out on the west coast.

    — Celtics won the NBA Draft Lottery; Lakers get the 2nd pick.

    — Since 2000, Buffalo Bills have had nine head coaches and seven GMs. That’s a lot.

    — Mets’ SS Asdrubel Cabrera finally goes on the DL with his sprained thumb.

    — Freddie Freeman has 13 hits, four homers in his first seven games in Rogers Centre in Toronto.

    — Miami Marlins are already committed to paying $95.3M to only eight players next season- their payroll is a total mess. They’ve ranked 25th or lower in attendance the last five years. Oy.


    Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Mid-week musings………

    13) Further proof the world is slowly going crazy…..

    “Volunteers at an overdose prevention site in Vancouver say they saved the life of a (pet) rat named Snuggles after the little rodent overdosed on heroin.”

    CNBC reported the pet rat was brought in by a woman who said it had eaten heroin off a table.

    You cannot make this stuff up.

    12) Cosmopolitan Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas started charging customers to park this week, the 23rd Strip property to charge customers to park in visits to resorts. Self-park is $7-10 a day; valet parking is $13-18 a day.

    11) Supposedly, one of the main reasons that Ben Simmons spent his six months of college at LSU is because lot of higher-profile college programs weren’t fond of the idea of having a camera crew following him around all season, for the infomercial his people did on him that aired on Showtime.

    I mean, how do you do a 90-minute “documentary” on a basketball player, but never have either his high school or college coach on to talk? Supposedly Simmons has grown another two inches since we last saw him play– he is now just about 7-feet tall. I’ll be very curious to see him play in NBA games.

    10) Since 2005, there have been 30 games that weren’t played at Coors Field that had a total of 12 or more runs. Under was 17-13 in those games.

    9) Washington Redskins signed free agent LB Nico Marley, grandson of music legend Bob Marley; his dad Rohan Marley played ball at Miami.

    8) 16.9% of Ben Roethlisberger’s passing attempts last year went 20+ yards downfield; the next highest percentage of any NFL QB last year was Cam Newton, at 13.9%.

    7) For the first time in 10 years, the winner of the Main Event at the World Series of Poker will be crowned in July and not November. Wish they would legalize online poker in this country so ESPN would start showing the WSOP the way it used to- enjoyed watching that stuff.

    6) Diamondbacks’ catcher Chris Iannetta was hit in the face by a pitch over the weekend; he broke his nose, a couple teeth and got stitches in his upper lip. Catchers are tough people.

    5) Stanford/Long Beach State will play basketball the next three years; this year in Long Beach, the next two years on the Farm. At least Stanford goes on the road once, more than most Power 5 schools do.

    Tulsa/Oklahoma State will play a home/home series starting this winter, which is very unusual.

    4) Back in late January, Alabama opened as -4.5 over Florida State in the college football season opener this fall. That spread is now Alabama -7.

    3) Alabama hired Yasir Rosemond as an assistant basketball coach; he has extensive recruiting ties in the Atlanta area- he previously was an assistant at Georgia and Oregon.

    2) Old Italian proverb: “When the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.”

    1) Geddy Lee, lead singer of Rush, was at the Braves-Blue Jays game in Toronto Tuesday. Lee is a huge baseball fan and apparently has a great memorabilia collection.

    Wednesday’s Stanley Cup Playoffs betting preview: Penguins at Senators

    Pittsburgh Penguins' captain Sidney Crosby - "We generated a lot of chances, and you don't let the fact that they aren't going in change the way you play."

    Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators (+110, 5)

    Series tied 1-1

    The Pittsburgh Penguins' high-octane offense ran roughshod through the league during the regular season, scoring an NHL-best 3.39 goals per game before marginally increasing that total over the first two rounds of the playoffs (3.42). The high-octane Pittsburgh Penguins, reduced to two tallies while splitting the first two contests of the Eastern Conference final, look to get their offense in gear Wednesday when they visit the Ottawa Senators for Game 3.

    "We generated a lot of chances, and you don't let the fact that they aren't going in change the way you play," captain Sidney Crosby said on the heels of Phil Kessel scoring the lone goal in the third period of Monday's 1-0 victory in Pittsburgh. The Penguins have mustered eight tallies in their last five games after recording 35 in their initial nine of the playoffs, with Ottawa's 1-3-1 defensive alignment serving as quite an obstacle in the conference final. The Senators didn't do much at the other end of the ice - literally - as they failed to record a shot on goal for 18:53 bridging the second and third periods. "We didn't generate a lot of offense," center Tom Pyatt said Tuesday, stating the obvious. "We played a solid, intense game, kept them to the outside, but I think they spent a little too much time in their zone. Obviously we (need) a better offensive effort for Game 3."

    TV: 8 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, CBC, TVAS

    LINE HISTORY: The Penguins opened as -130 road favorites for Game 3 in Ottawa. The total hit the betting board at 5.


    Penguins - RW P. Hornqvist (Questionable, upper body), D T. Daley (Questionable, lower body), RW B. Rust (Questionable, upper body), D J. Schultz (Questionable, upper body), D K. Letang (Out For Season, neck).

    Senators - LW V. Stalberg (Questionable, lower body), D M. Borowiecki (Out Indefinitely, leg).

    ABOUT THE PENGUINS (59-24-8-5, 53-38 O/U): Evgeni Malkin set up Kessel on Monday to increase his point total to an NHL-best 20 (six goals, 14 assists), joining Mario Lemieux as the only players in franchise history to reach that plateau on three occasions. Kessel's sixth tally of the playoffs followed one of his many emotional outbursts on the bench, with a particular one involving assistant coach Rick Tocchet caught on camera about Pittsburgh's need to move the puck. "It tells me he's invested - I love that about the guy," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said of Kessel's fiery nature. "Yeah, he's always like that."

    ABOUT THE SENATORS (53-32-7-4, 37-52 O/U): Ottawa may receive a jolt as the series shifts to Canada's capital in the form of forward Viktor Stalberg and defenseman Mark Borowiecki, who coach Guy Boucher said "could be coming in at any moment." Stalberg has been sidelined since Game 6 of the second-round series versus the New York Rangers with an undisclosed injury while Borowiecki has been out since Game 2 of the first-round set against Boston with a lower-body ailment. Captain Erik Karlsson is playing with two hairline fractures in his foot, but the two-time Norris Trophy recipient still managed to record a team-high 26:59 of ice time in Game 2.


    * Penguins are 39-13 in their last 52 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game.
    * Senators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
    * Under is 6-1 in Penguins last 7 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game.
    * Under is 10-1 in Senators last 11 vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
    * Under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

    CONSENSUS: 55 percent of the public is siding with the road chalk Penguins on the moneyline and 52 percent are on the Over.
