MONTREAL (AP) — Columbus was a little faster to the puck than Montreal all night. The Blue Jackets, though, couldn’t take advantage of their opportunities until late in the third period.
Ryan Johansen scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:01 remaining to give Columbus a 3-2 victory over Montreal on Thursday night, ending the Canadiens’ three-game winning streak.
“They were first on the puck, making us react to them, putting us on our heels a bit,” Montreal’s Lars Eller said of the young and energized Columbus team in the heart of a heated playoff race. “When they do that, we take penalties.”

Bengals sign QB Jason Campbell to be backup PDF Print E-mail

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals have signed quarterback Jason Campbell to be Andy Dalton's backup, a move that brings the franchise full-circle in several ways.

Campbell has played for Washington, Oakland, Chicago and Cleveland. He started eight of the Browns' last nine games last season.

The nine-year veteran was the starter in Oakland in 2010 and 2011, when he broke his collarbone midway through the season. At the urging of coach Hue Jackson, the Raiders traded two draft picks to get Carson Palmer from the Bengals, opening the way for Dalton.

Jackson is Cincinnati's new offensive coordinator.

Josh Johnson was Dalton's backup last season, but wasn't needed. He finished off two lopsided wins and didn't throw a pass.

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Cincinnati Reds' closer Aroldis Chapman broke bones above his left eye and nose when he was hit by a line drive Wednesday night, the latest frightening injury to a pitcher struck in the head by a batted ball.
Chapman was undergoing further testing at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, where he was set to spend the night for observation, according to a statement from the Reds.
First-year manager Bryan Price said Chapman was conscious and talking as he was taken off the field during Cincinnati’s spring training game against the Kansas City Royals.
The exhibition was called after an 8-minute delay with Kansas City leading 6-3.
“Not good,” Price said. “He left the field on a stretcher, took a line drive just above his left eye is what it looks like — a contusion, a laceration, and certainly needs to be taken to the hospital and checked. We’ve got Tomas Vera, an assistant trainer, is going to be with him. And then we’ll get our updates from there.”
