GiveMeSport US Report: 17th April

Published Add your comment

We start with the NHL, and the Montreal Canadiens scored late in overtime to secure a game one win over the Tampa Bay Lightning last night.

Dale Weise netted in the extra period to seal the 5-4 home victory. There were also game one wins for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks.

In the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers on the final day of the regular season.

The defeat means that the Nets will now play the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the playoffs, which start on Saturday.

In the NFL, the New York Jets have agreed to a two-year deal with free-agent running back Chris Johnson.

Johnson rushed for almost 8,000 yards during his six year career with the Tennessee Titans.
