Sabres acquire defenseman Nathan Beaulieu from Canadiens

Sabres acquire defenseman Nathan Beaulieu from Canadiens

All of a sudden, Montreal's left side defensive depth has taken a major hit with Beaulieu gone as well as top prospect Mikhail Sergachev who was dealt in exchange for Jonathan Drouin back on Thursday. The deal leaves the Sabres with seven picks in the draft, including two in the second round. Buffalo traded its own third-rounder in this transaction, retaining the third-rounder it got a year ago from Washington for defenseman Mike Weber.



Casey overcomes triple-bogey to tie for US Open lead

The biggest jolt of all, however, came watching World No 1 and defending champion Dustin Johnson , No 2 Rory McIlroy and No 3 Jason Day all trudge to the exit after failing to make the halfway cut, which fell at 1-over 145.

Multiple reports via Twitter indicated that Smith will head to the Flames, though details of who the Coyotes will get in return have not been confirmed. Backing up Elliott for the Flames last season was Johnson. The deal is an interesting one for the Flames. The Kingston, ON native has two years remaining on a six-year, $34 million contract in the 2013 offseason, but did not have to waive his modified no-trade clause of eight teams he refused to be traded to in the deal.


Jason Dufner hangs on to win weather-delayed Memorial

Jason Dufner hangs on to win weather-delayed Memorial

Part of this is the insane Sunday weather that prompted a pair of delays, but part of it is that the golfers involved tend to get wildly different results from round to round. Unfortunately, a double bogey on No. 3 and a bogey on No. 4 opened things up for the rest of the field. Ironically, his only birdie on the back nine came via a near-60-foot putt right after the second rain delay.



Rory McIlroy responds to criticism from Australian golfer Steve Elkington

In the second tweet that's an actual response to McIlroy, as the mentions point out, it was Elkington who brought up cash in the first place. He would have expected the criticism to come in from the usual sources but one surprise was a freakish Twitter rant from an Australian professional golfer named Steve Elkington.
