Rangers Land Keith Yandle in Trade with Coyotes

The New York Rangers have been one of the hottest teams in the NHL, going 8-1-1 over their last 10 games. But that’s not stopping Glen Sather from improving the roster with Monday’s NHL trade deadline looming.  

According to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos, the Rangers have swung a deal with the Arizona Coyotes to acquire two-time All-Star defenseman Keith Yandle.      

TSN’s Darren Dreger and ESPN’s Katie Strang provided some extra details:

Alain Vigneault’s squad is third in the NHL in goals per game, and this gives them an added offensive punch. Yandle has tallied 41 points (four goals, 37 assists) for the Coyotes this season, ranking in the top 10 in the league among defensemen. 

Sportsnet’s Damien Cox offered his thoughts: 

Even if he has his drawbacks, there’s no question that his presence makes this team even more dangerous. 

Of course, not only does this make New York a stronger Stanley Cup contender, but it’s also more than just a half-season rental. The 28-year-old is under contract through the 2015-16 season, and with Arizona paying half his salary, he comes cheap. 

For Arizona, it’s all about the future. Anthony Duclair is a promising 19-year-old wing, while the extra first-round pick should help the Coyotes with their current rebuilding process. 

It’s a steep price to pay for the Rangers, but with the window for a Stanley Cup open, they opted to be aggressive. We’ll see if it pays off in June.    

Five Great College Basketball Games Left This Season

Bryan Altman, CBS Local Sports

As we enter the final week of the NCAA regular season we already know a fair amount about the teams we’ll be cheering for as March creeps closer to April. For example: We know Kentucky is very very good. That isn’t going to change regardless of what happens this final week of the season, especially considering that they probably won’t lose. However, there are some matchups that are as salacious as we could ask for and they could make a huge impact on the NCAA Tournament. With the tournament right around the corner, here are five games this week that are sure please anyone looking for an appetizer to the madness that is coming later in March.

1. (4) Duke @ (15) North Carolina – Saturday, March 7, 9 p.m.

The 240th iteration of the Hatfield’s vs. McCoy’s of the college basketball universe is sure to be a gem if the 239th version was any indication. In case you somehow forgot, Duke pulled off a spectacular comeback at home against the Tar Heels to not only defeat their rivals, but to give their legendary coach Mike Krzyzewsky his 1,000th career win. Both teams will surely be hungry for a victory before heading into the ACC tournament and both would love nothing more than to take their arch-rival to the woodshed as a cherry on top of two respectable seasons for two revered schools.

2. (9) Notre Dame @ (17) Louisville – Wednesday, March 4, 7 p.m.

Notre Dame and Louisville are two teams hoping to make some noise in the NCAA tournament this year and there’s no better way to alert the world to their presence than by beating up on the other. Louisville may finally be finding their footing again after the shocking news surrounding guard Chris Jones and his dismissal from the team after an impressive romp of Florida State on the road. Meanwhile Notre Dame will be looking to prevent a late-season slide after unceremoniously losing to Syracuse at home this past week. A two-game losing streak could spell trouble for the Irish, a winning streak for Louisville could make them a dangerous team in the ACC tournament and beyond.

3. (2) Virginia @ Syracuse – Monday, March 2, 7 p.m.

While Syracuse may be sitting on the sidelines on their own accord for this year’s tourney they have still taken kindly to the task of slaying some giants as the season has gone on. With a win over Louisville at home and one on the road over Notre Dame within five days of each other they will surely be able to give Virginia all they can handle when they show up at the Carrier Dome this weekend. Without Justin Anderson, Malcolm Brogdon has led the charge for the Cavaliers and he’ll have to do so if Virginia want to avoid the same fate as the Cardinals and Irish.

4. (2) Virginia @ (17) Louisville – Saturday, March 7, 6:30 p.m.

Both these teams have been mentioned above and clearly have a huge week ahead. Seeding position is at stake and so is confidence heading into the NCAA Tournament. If Virginia can go on the road and come out with a win that would make them 2-0 against Louisville on the season and give them a big edge of the Cardinals should the two teams meet in the ACC tournament. For a slightly rattled Louisville program, this would be their signature win this season and the timing couldn’t be better. 

5. (8) Kansas @ (16) Oklahoma – Saturday, March 7, 4 p.m.

For Kansas and Oklahoma it’s a Big 12-filled finale. Kansas’s week consists of games against West Virginia and Oklahoma on the horizon as they set their sights on a Big 12 tournament victory. They have been an up-and-down team for most of the year but a run through the Big 12, especially through West Virginia and Oklahoma this coming week can set them on a nice path for the NCAA Tournament. The Sooners will be looking to avenge a loss to Kansas earlier in the season and stake their claim as a team to be aware of coming into the Big 12 tournament. If they can beat Kansas and Iowa State they’ll certainly have the rest of the Big 12 looking at Oklahoma as a serious contender this March. 

While we all can’t wait for Selection Sunday and the NCAA Tournament there’s plenty to look forward this coming week. Nobody wants to limp into their conference tournaments or the Big Dance so these teams will be out looking to win these critical matchups at all costs.

Ludacris and His Wife Eudoxie Are Expecting Their First Child

Beautiful day on the beach ☀️☀️

A photo posted by eudoxiee (Eh-dox-ee) (@eudoxiee) on

After recently getting married in December, Ludacris and his new wife Eudoxie Agnan have informally announced they are expecting their first child together. Earlier today, Eudoxie took to Instagram and posted a shot of her and Luda on the beach at an undisclosed location with the caption, “Beautiful day on the beach.” The eye-popping aspect to the photo, though, is the Atlanta rapper placing a gentle kiss on Agnan’s obviously pregnant belly. The Disturbing Tha Peace head later reposted the photo to his Instagram account with the caption, “Repost @eudoxiee Beautiful day on the beach. Beautiful day indeed.”

The announcement of the upcoming new addition comes just a few months after the couple were wed in a private ceremony back in December. Luda reportedly asked for Eudoxie’s hand in marriage and exchanged vows the same day. After an epic proposal, Ludacris took Agnan to dinner, and upon their arrival home, Agnan found a wedding dress selected by the rapper’s mother. On hand were a select few family members and friends. The happy couple jetted off to Costa Rica a day or two after their whirlwind engagement/marriage.

Ludacris has two daughters from previous relationships, Karma (14) and Cai (1), so we’re guessing he’s shooting for a boy this time.

Congratulations to Luda and Eudoxie!

Check out the picture of the tender moment, above.
