Pressure, what pressure? The Sabres trail the Eastern Conference final series, 3-2, to Carolina, but Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff did his best yesterday to gain a psychological edge. "The pressure falls on them," Ruff said of the top-seeded Hurricanes. "Oh, you'd hate to lose Game 6 and have to play Game 7. You'd never want to get in that situation because in one game, anything can happen. " Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette wasn't biting. Carolina can advance to the Stanley Cup finals against Edmonton with a win tonight in Game 6 at Buffalo.

AUSTIN, Texas - Shane Larkin hit a go-ahead three-pointer with a minute left and Miami gained possession on a ball knocked out of bounds that probably should have gone to Illinois, helping the Hurricanes hold on for a 63-59 victory Sunday night to advance to the NCAA round of 16. After Larkin's first field goal in about 9 1/2 minutes, D.J. Richardson missed a three-pointer. In the fight for the rebound, the ball appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami's Kenny Kadji out of bounds.

Villa Maria coach Kathy McCartney had to admit that she didn't think her team was going to win Wednesday night, not after Lansdale Catholic jumped to a 9-2 lead, not after the Crusaders were leading by 11 after one quarter, not after her Hurricanes had shot 4 for 14 in the first 8 minutes. "It looked like we were going to be in for a long night," McCartney said. "It looked like it was going to be a very long night. " Instead, it turned out to be a night to remember for McCartney and her team.

Villa Maria's triangle-and-two defense was like the Bermuda Triangle. Top- seeded Lansdale Catholic's offense disappeared for a half, and the Crusaders were in danger of losing their PIAA Class AAA semifinal playoff game at Conestoga on Wednesday. But the Crusaders found their offense in time to post a 63-42 win over the No. 5-seeded Hurricanes. Villa Maria lost to Unionville, 66-54, in the consolation game Saturday and will meet District 2 champion Honesdale in the first round of the state playoffs tomorrow at Dunmore High School.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes capitalized on their ability to get fortuitous bounces to grab a two-games-to-none advantage over the New Jersey Devils. Defenseman Niclas Wallin scored against Martin Brodeur 3 minutes, 9 seconds into overtime as the Hurricanes posted a 3-2 victory last night over the Devils and opened a commanding lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal. Wallin had the puck knocked off his stick by defenseman Paul Martin during a rush, but it bounced off Wallin's skate and through Brodeur's legs.

The Villa Maria basketball players could have called it a season after an emotional 46-44 loss to arch-rival Merion Mercy in the first round of the Catholic Academies League playoffs Tuesday. Instead, the Hurricanes decided to make their season last a little longer. "No doubt about it, that loss helped us tonight," Villa point guard Helen Hoban said after the Hurricanes beat Pottsgrove, 40-34, in the PIAA Class AAA playoffs Friday night. "We had something to prove. " The Hurricanes proved that they had the emotional fortitude to put their second straight playoff loss to Merion Mercy behind them and became one of the four District 1 teams to qualify for the state playoffs in the process.

Deadly accuracy from the free-throw line and hand-in-the-face defense lifted Gwynedd-Mercy to a 21-point lead after three quarters and a fairly easy 55-42 victory over Villa Maria in the quarterfinal round of PIAA District 1 Class AAA action. The Mustangs (23-0) took control late in the first half Saturday at Methacton High School and did not relinquish it. Trailing 16-13 with two minutes left in the second quarter, Gwynedd-Mercy went on a 13-5 run to take a 26-21 lead at intermission.

The No. 18 Louisville Cardinals drew a flag for excessive celebration in the second quarter, and another in the third. Against Miami, the displays of jubilation were premature. Led by Brock Berlin and Devin Hester, the third-ranked Hurricanes erased a 17-point deficit over the final 20 minutes and came from behind twice in the fourth quarter to beat visiting Louisville, 41-38, last night. Berlin threw three touchdown passes and directed the winning drive, a 56-yard march capped by Frank Gore's 1-yard run with 49 seconds left.

Rating Miami's two wins over St. John's this season wasn't hard at all for Johnny Hemsley. "It was tremendous getting them at home, winning at Miami Arena," he said last night after scoring 29 points in the 25th-ranked Hurricanes' 73-70 victory over No. 9 St. John's. "But this. This was in New York at Madison Square Garden. We came out and did a great job. " The Hurricanes outscored the Red Storm, 14-3, over the final 51/2 minutes for the series sweep. They are the only non-Top 10 team to beat St. John's this season.

Larry Coker won nearly 80 percent of his games at Miami, got players to graduate, was revered for his classy manner and led the Hurricanes to a national championship. Despite all that, even he acknowledged Miami needed to make a change. Coker's tumultuous and disappointing season got its predictable ending yesterday, when he was fired after 6 years of leading the Hurricanes. The move came a day after Miami finished a 6-6 regular season by beating Boston College, snapping a four-game losing streak and becoming bowl-eligible.

The Flyers continued to play down to their competition Thursday night. They suffered their 12th straight loss in games against teams not in a playoff spot, dropping a sleep-inducing 3-1 decision to Carolina at the Wells Fargo Center. "The intensity is not as high as when we play good teams," said Claude Giroux, who hit the post with 52 seconds left. "Maybe it's preparation. I'm not too sure it is, but we need to figure it out. " They will have all summer to do so. The season ends Saturday afternoon against visiting Ottawa, which needs one point to clinch a playoff spot.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It seemed fitting that a small, somewhat lethargic crowd attended the Flyers' final road game of the season Saturday afternoon. The Flyers, after all, came up small - and played too much listless hockey - in their 41 road games. They dropped a 3-2 decision to Carolina in a shootout at PNC Arena and finished with a 10-20-11 road record. You have to go back to 1971-72 (7-25-7) to find a season in which the Flyers finished with fewer road victories. Chris Terry scored what proved to be the game-winner in the shootout.

The nonprofit Fair Share Housing Center issued a scathing report in January: The state of New Jersey's disbursement of funds for homeowners rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy is far too slow, giving out only a small fraction of the money available. Kristine Pyzyna can vouch firsthand for how painful the process has been. More than two years after the October 2012 storm, her state-appointed contractors still haven't finished. And Pyzyna is lucky: She actually got a grant to rebuild.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It was a routine check, a sequence repeated up to 100 times in any given NHL game, on a dull January night in North Carolina. Claude Giroux closed in on Carolina's Justin Faulk in the corner at PNC Arena and pushed the Hurricanes defenseman toward the boards. On the reverberation, Faulk's right skate inadvertently swung back and caught the Flyers' captain's left leg. One run-of-the-mill hit could have irreversibly altered the Flyers. Giroux buckled and immediately fell to all fours on the ice. The puck had long moved up ice in the opposite direction when referee Ian Walsh halted play and a squirming Giroux, trying desperately to make it back to the Flyers' bench.

Sean Couturier tied a personal milestone on Saturday, and Scott Laughton created one. Together, these two young Flyers centers and former first-round draft choices have given the team a spark. Couturier scored just 53 seconds into the game, and Laughton, making his 18th NHL appearance, scored his first goal as the Flyers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-1, in a matinee at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have earned points in five consecutive games and are 2-0 in a four-game homestand that continues Tuesday against Tampa Bay. Couturier tied a career high by scoring a point in his sixth straight game.

With lowly Carolina visiting the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon, the Flyers have a juicy opportunity to increase their points streak to five games and pick up ground in the Metropolitan Division. No NHL team has fewer points than the Hurricanes (19), who have lost four straight and slipped to 8-17-3. The Flyers (10-13-5) are coming off one of their better all-around performances of the season, a 4-1 win over New Jersey on Thursday that started a four-game homestand.

EMMAUS, Pa. - Someone was missing. During a timeout in the second half Tuesday night, Villa Maria huddled on the field around coach Daan Polders as his team strategized on how to break its scoreless game against Moravian Academy. For the first part of that huddle, however, Lindsay Dickinson was on the sidelines tending to her injured right hand. An opposing player had struck her with a stick, and the inside of her palm was bloody and swollen, but she wouldn't stay on the sideline long.

Three years ago, my family and I drove overnight from Maine to New Jersey, trying to get home ahead of Hurricane Irene. That memory from late August 2011 prompts hurricane-preparation thoughts today. Here are some tips from Ready.gov - some things to do well in advance of landfall: To start, put together an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. Know your surroundings. Learn the elevation level of your property and whether the land is flood-prone. That will help you know how your property might be affected should storm surges or tidal flooding occur.

Those dire warnings that worldwide warming was having an incendiary effect on hurricanes and that ever-more powerful, deadly, and costly tropical storms were inevitable were part of the legacy of Katrina's almost unimaginable devastation. But what followed was shocking for other reasons: After that 2005 season, not a single major hurricane struck U.S. shores, constituting a period of record quiet. Technically, Sandy, as bad as it was, was not a hurricane at landfall. If forecasters can be believed - and last year they whiffed badly - this could be yet another relatively tranquil season in the Atlantic basin, which includes the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.
