We start off in the NBA where the regular season comes to an end tonight.

The last games of the season take place later with several playoff seedings still up in the air.

The LA Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder are fighting it out for the number 2 seed in the East, while the Brooklyn Nets will be desperately looking to lose their game today in order to avoid the in-form Chicago Bulls in the first round.

To Major League Baseball where the Chicago White Sox beat American League rivals the Boston Red Sox thanks to a throwing error.

Alexei Ramirez grabbed the winning run in the 9th inning to take a 2-1 home victory.

Things went from bad to worse for Boston as Mike Napoli dislocated a finger, joining an already stacked injury list.

And finally to the NHL where the Florida Panthers upset the odds by getting the number one pick in this years draft ahead of the Buffalo Sabres.

Defenseman Aaron Ekblad is expected to be taken first overall.
