Pastrnak scores twice, Bruins beat Maple Leafs to tie series

Westlake Legal Group pastrnak-scores-twice-bruins-beat-maple-leafs-to-tie-series Pastrnak scores twice, Bruins beat Maple Leafs to tie series fox-news/sports/stanley-cup-playoffs fox-news/sports/nhl/toronto-maple-leafs fox-news/sports/nhl/boston-bruins fox-news/sports/nhl fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 4e47bbdd-8368-5f8c-ae2e-fa18ddb7d508

With the Maple Leafs buzzing and Scotiabank Arena rocking after Toronto tied it early in second period, the Boston Bruins needed a push from their dormant stars.

David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand delivered.

Pastrnak scored twice in quick succession, Marchand had a goal and two assists and the Bruins held off the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-4 on Wednesday night to tie the first-round series 2-2.

“It’s not easy to win in this building,” Pastrnak said. “A hell of a win.”

Game 5 is Friday night in Boston.

Charlie McAvoy had a goal and an assist for Boston, Zdeno Chara and Joakim Nordstrom also scored and Tuukka Rask made 38 saves.

At 42 years, 30 days, the 6-foot-9 Chara became the second-oldest defenseman in NHL history to score a playoff goal. Chris Chelios holds the record at 45 years, 86 days.

“If I contribute something offensively, it’s always a plus,” Chara said. “But my focus is always playing well defensively. I take a lot of pride in playing well defensively.”

Auston Matthews scored twice for Toronto. Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott also scored and Frederik Andersen stopped 25 shots.

“We had real good energy,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “I didn’t think we had the kind of brain all that time that we wanted. Turned the puck over, two real big mistakes on the penalty kill. Just got in our own way a little bit.”

After the Maple Leafs overcame a 2-0 deficit to tie it early in the second period, Pastrnak put Boston back in front at 3:16 when he redirected a pass from Marchand on a 2-on-1. The Bruins then got a power play when Matthews went off for roughing, and Marchand whipped a backhand pass to a wide-open Pastrnak, who snapped the puck short-side on Andersen for his second goal in 1:35.

Chara made it 5-2 at 5:39 of the third.

“He’s a true professional. He’s a great leader,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “Still a really solid hockey player. They’re trying to find ways to expose him and he’s trying to adapt to the new NHL and has. There’s a reason why he’s still playing and still effective. Not only is he hard, but he’s smart. He’s a very intelligent man and has been able to figure out a way to keep playing this game and be effective.”

Matthews scored on the power play with 8:08 left, and Dermott made it 5-4 through traffic with 6:33 remaining. Nordstrom scored into an empty net with two seconds to go.

“We did a lot of good things,” Toronto center John Tavares said. “We generated a lot of chances, got a lot of pucks to the net. We didn’t have our best start tonight, but we gave ourselves a good chance.”

NOTES: Boston was 2 for 2 on the power play. Toronto went 1 for 3. … Canadian hip hop artist Drake and Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse attended the game.

Japan’s top court has rejected an appeal by former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn’s lawyers against his extended detention after his fourth arrest on allegations of financial misconduct.

The decision Wednesday, conveyed to foreign media on Thursday, turns down the appeal by Ghosn’s lawyers against an extension of his detention through April 22 that was approved Monday by the Tokyo District Court.

Ghosn, first arrested in November, was released March 6 on bail, but was arrested again on April 4.

He is charged with under-reporting his retirement compensation and with breach of trust. He denies any wrongdoing.

Ghosn led Nissan for two decades, turning around the company from near-bankruptcy. Last week, Nissan’s shareholders voted to remove him from Nissan’s board.

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang promoted his ‘Freedom Dividend’ plan while appearing on “Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream” Thursday and revealed that tech companies like Amazon would fund his proposed program which aims to give American adults $1,000 dollars monthly.
 
“We all can see that Amazon paid zero in federal taxes last year despite record revenues. And so, ff we know that the big winners in the new technology age are going to be paying zero taxes then of course were not going to have enough money to go around,” Yang told Bream when pressed about how he would fund Universal Basic Income plan.
 
“But if we follow other countries examples and create a mechanism where we all benefit from these innovations, then we can pay for a $1,000 dividend for every American adult. Our economy is up to a record  $20 trillion. Just the problem is those benefits are not being felt by the average American family,” Yang said.

DEM 2020 CANDIDATE ANDREW YANG STANDS BY ‘FREEDOM DIVIDEND’
 
Yang’s proposal would give every American adult over the age of 18 a monthly payment of $1,000 dollars “independent of one’s work status or any other factor,” according to his website.
 
This wouldn’t be the first time Amazon is dragged into a political conversation.
 
Earlier this year Amazon decided not to build their headquarters in Queens, New York after the company and city were criticized over tax breaks.
 
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was one the most prominent critics of the deal.

OCASIO-CORTEZ CHEERS AS AMAZON REPORTEDLY RECONSIDERS NY HQ AFTER FIERCE OPPOSITION 

The Venture for America founder says his plan would boost the economy and add jobs.
 
“Under my plan, the ‘Freedom Dividend,’ if you put $1,000 a month in the hands of every American consumer, a lot of that money would get circulated through economy over and over again and it would create hundreds of thousands of new jobs in main street economies around the country,” Yang said.

“I am forever grateful to Lenox Hill downtown and @nyphospital for their immediate response and aid,” Mollen wrote, sharing a photo of her holding Sid, his face covered by an emoji. Sid was released from the hospital and is now home “taking things slowly and recovering nicely,” Mollen added that he is, “eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones.”

The 39-year-old actress also thanked her husband for the support. Biggs, 44, married Mollen in 2008, and the couple has two sons, five-year-old Sid and one-year-old Lazo.

“My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone…” Mollen continued. The “My Best Friend’s Girl” co-star has taken to Instagram before to express her scares as a mom. Lazo was bitten by a dog on Thanksgiving but was not seriously injured.

Kamala Harris admits ‘unintended consequences’ in anti-truancy law while she was California AG

Kamala Harris expressed regret this week over a 2011 anti-truancy law she supported that put some parents in jail while she was California’s attorney general.

Speaking on the podcast “Pod Save America,” Sen. Harris said the law was never intended to punish parents for their child’s chronic truancy, but rather to get students on the right track in the classroom. She admitted, however, that it had “unintended consequences.”

KAMALA HARRIS, WHO DEFENDED DEATH PENALTY AS CALIFORNIA AG, NOW CHEERS NEWSOM’S DECISION TO END IT

“My regret is that I have now heard stories where in some jurisdictions, DAs have criminalized the parents. And I regret that that has happened,” she said, which aired Wednesday. It marks the first time Harris has shown remorse over the law, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The law is an example of difficult questions Harris may face from progressive voters concerned with prison reform.

It’s not the first time Harris’ prosecutorial past has come under the microscope. Earlier this month, a New York Times op-ed writer claimed Harris has fought to uphold wrongful convictions as attorney general. She has also been criticized for her defense of the death penalty as attorney general only to say she would call for a federal moratorium of the death penalty if she were elected president.

Harris made it clear that no parents were arrested while she was district attorney in San Francisco and the arrests were in jurisdictions outside of hers.

Arizona police release graphic video of deadly officer-involved shooting

Arizona police released a video Wednesday that showed a man throwing a wrench at deputies before they shot him to death while responding to a call from family members concerned for the man’s mental health on Friday.

Juan Torres, 39, could be seen wielding a wrench in one hand and a hammer in another in a body camera video released by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers, who were called to the home by the man’s sister, told him to drop his weapons before Torres threw a wrench at one of them. Officers then open fired at Torres who was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

PHOENIX MAN WHO SUSPECTED WIFE OF AN AFFAIR KILLS HER AND 2 KIDS, SPARES YOUNGEST: POLICE

Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone defended the actions of his officers who he said were forced to deploy deadly force when Torres escalated the situation. Penzone refuted claims that officers could have used tasers instead of drawing their guns.

“What you don’t want is one of the deputies actually leaving their partners behind knowing that an escalation and the likelihood of an engagement is high,” Penzone said.

Torres’ sister, Irma, said the family called 911 so that officers could take their brother to an institution to be evaluated for his mental health issues. The family claims deputies could have used other methods to stop Torres and plans to file a lawsuit against the sheriff’s department, CBS 5 reported.

“I just wish the sheriff’s department, and all police, get more training in situations like this to help people instead of going to this extreme,” Rick Torres, Juan Torres’ father, told CBS 5. “It just shouldn’t have happened, plain and simple, overkill, too much. My son didn’t have to die like that.”

North Korean state media reported Thursday that the regime no longer wants to see Secretary of State Mike Pompeo involved in nuclear talks, urging the U.S. replace the top diplomat with someone “more careful and mature in communicating.”

The KCNA news agency, the official North Korean state television, quoted Kwon Jong Gun, a senior official at the North’s foreign ministry, who claimed that the situation in the Korean peninsula is currently unpredictable.

NORTH KOREA SAYS IT TEST-FIRED TACTICAL GUIDED WEAPON; KIM CALLS IT ‘EVENT OF VERY WEIGHTY SIGNIFICANCE’

He said that “no one can predict” the situation on the Korean Peninsula as long as the U.S. doesn’t address the “root cause” that forced the regime to develop its nuclear weapons, Reuters reported.

The report didn’t elaborate why the decision was made.

The latest message from Pyongyang comes just a day after the country’s dictator Kim Jong Un reportedly watched his country to test-fired a new tactical guided weapon, marking the worsening relations between the regime and the rest of the world following the failed U.S.-North Korea summit in Vietnam earlier this year.

TRUMP RECIPROCATES AFTER NORTH KOREA’S KIM SAYS HE’S OPEN TO THIRD SUMMIT

The White House told Fox News that they were aware of the earlier report of the test but offered no comment. U.S. officials told Fox News that the missile test was likely a “short-range” test of a small guided weapon and not a large ballistic missile.

American intelligence agencies, which normally detect the launch of ballistic missiles worldwide, did not detect any test from North Korea, one official said.

“We’re aware of the reports but I have nothing for you at this time,” said Lt. Col. David Eastburn, a Pentagon spokesman.

Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson, Kristin Brown and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Pope Francis is ushering in the most solemn period in the Catholic liturgical calendar by celebrating a Holy Thursday Mass, made more poignant this year following the devastation of Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral.

The Crism Mass celebrates the unity of priests with their bishops. During Thursday’s service, Francis blesses the holy oils that will be used over the course of the year in the administration of various sacraments.

In his homily, Francis stressed that when priests use the oil, they are distributing their vocation and heart to the people of God.

This year, Holy Week — which for Catholics commemorates Christ’s crucifixion, death and resurrection — has taken on particular meaning following the fire at Notre Dame, a symbol of French Catholicism.

Francis has offered his condolences repeatedly to the French faithful.

A 1,688-pound female great white shark called Miss Costa was spotted this week swimming in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida panhandle, according to researchers

A transmitter on the sub-adult shark “pinged” south of Panama City, Fla., according to OCEARCH, an international great white shark research organization. A “ping” occurs when a tagged shark’s dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water, transmitting a signal to a satellite, the organization told the Pensacola News Journal.

GREAT WHITE SHARKS ARE AFRAID OF ORCAS, STUDY FINDS

While it isn’t unusual for great whites to swim through the Gulf of Mexico, Miss Costa’s cruise through the Florida Panhandle is significant because a ping from a large female that far north into the Gulf is rare, OCEARCH said in a news release Tuesday.

The organization said it hopes that tracking Miss Costa and other great white sharks will help to understand the movement patterns of sharks in the Gulf.

Miss Costa measured 12-feet 6-inches when she was first tagged by researchers on Sept. 23, 2016, in Nantucket, Mass., OCEARCH said. Researchers estimated the great white could be between 14-15 feet long today.

The most recent great white sharks to visit the Gulf Coast include a 1,326-pound male named Hilton and an 8-foot 6-inch, 460-pound female named Savannah, the News Journal reported.
