BOSTON (AP) — Rita Jeptoo of Kenya successfully defended the Boston Marathon title she said she could not enjoy a year ago after the fatal bombings.

Jeptoo finished Monday's race in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. She becomes the seventh three-time Boston Marathon champion.

Jeptoo broke away from a group of five runners at the 23-mile mark. Buzunesh Deba finished second with an unofficial time of 2:19:59.

American Shalane Flanagan finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She took a gamble by setting the early pace. She ran her first mile in 5 minutes, 11 seconds, but fell back on the Newton Hills about 21 miles into the race.

BOSTON — Two power-play goals and stingy penalty killing ended the Boston Bruins’ offensive drought and tied their playoff series.
Reilly Smith and Zdeno Chara scored with a man advantage, the Detroit Red Wings got just one shot on goal on their four power plays and Boston won 4-1 in Game 2 on Sunday.
“We don’t get too many power plays so it was good to be able to get them and be able to capitalize early,” Smith said.
He scored his first career playoff goal 10:35 into the game, just over three minutes after Justin Florek’s fluke goal gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead on their first shot at 7:28.
They finished the first period with 18 shots on goalie Jimmy Howard after managing just 25 in losing Friday night’s opener 1-0.

Pivotal Game 3 awaits with Pens, CBJ tied at 1-1 PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS — Not so long ago, the Columbus Blue Jackets were the worst team in the NHL.
Now they’re heading home for Monday night’s Game 3 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series with the star-studded Pittsburgh Penguins hoping to make even more history.
“For our fans, it’s been 14 years and they haven’t seen a playoff victory,” budding star Ryan Johansen said after Saturday night’s stunning 4-3 win in Pittsburgh in two overtimes. “To be able to go back to Columbus now tied 1-1 with the momentum we have, it’s a great feeling.”
The Blue Jackets, cellar dwellers for most of the franchise’s existence, got the first playoff victory in their 13 seasons when undersized pest Matt Calvert banged in a second-chance rebound 1:10 into the second overtime.
It led to a writhing, laughing pile of humanity on the ice at Consol Energy Center — and also set in motion a lot of doubts and criticism of the mighty Penguins.
Stocked with hockey celebrities such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the Pens have come up short in the last four years since winning the Cup in 2009. Callers to sports-talk shows and those on social media are already questioning the club’s heart and commitment.

CHICAGO — Homer Bailey doesn’t even need to be at his best to win at Wrigley Field.
Bailey pitched six scoreless innings in a friendly ballpark for his first win of the season and Jay Bruce homered and doubled as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 8-2 on Sunday.
“He hasn’t been his normal dominant self, but his slider has gotten a lot better,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “It’s a pitch that he’s worked on for a long time. It seems like that pitch has really turned a corner and got him some big outs today.”
Bailey (1-1) struck out eight while allowing six hits and three walks. He came into the game with 8.16 ERA after signing a big extension in the offseason with Cincinnati.
Zack Cozart hit a two-run homer for Cincinnati, which took two of three this weekend from the Cubs and has won 17 of 19 games at Wrigley Field.
