Penguins Snap Losing Streak
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Conor Sheary scored 34 seconds into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins ended the Washington Capitals' nine-game winning streak with a wild 8-7 victory Monday night that included nine second-period goals. Sheary had two goals and an assist for the Penguins, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Evgeni Malkin picked up his 11th career hat trick during a frenetic second period, and Sidney Crosby collected his NHL-leading 27th goal to go with three assists. Bryan Rust and Nick Bonino also scored for Pittsburgh, and Matt Murray got the win despite allowing seven goals on 28 shots. The Penguins trailed 3-0 before scoring six goals in less than 11 minutes in the second period, more goals than the Capitals had allowed in a game all season. Pittsburgh led 6-5 after 40 minutes. Lars Eller scored twice for Washington, and T.J. Oshie, Brett Connolly, Nicklas Backstrom, Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky also found the net. Philipp Grubauer made eight saves after coming on in relief of Braden Holtby, who was pulled during Pittsburgh's second-period deluge.

Chiefs Coach Disagrees With Holding Call
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs coach Andy Reid doesn't believe the holding penalty on left tackle Eric Fisher that cost Kansas City a tying 2-point conversion against Pittsburgh on Sunday night should have been called. After watching film of the decisive play in the Steelers' 18-16 playoff victory, Reid said Monday that "I don't want to be fined any money, but I'd lean a different way." Fisher appeared to hook Steelers pass rusher James Harrison on the conversion attempt with less than 3 minutes left in the game. But the play was not cut-and-dried: Harrison dipped especially low and may have been losing his balance, and he likely would not have gotten to the quarterback anyway. Still, the flag negated the successful 2-point conversion. And when the Chiefs tried again from the 12-yard line, Alex Smith's throw fell incomplete and the Steelers were able to run out the clock.

Playoff TV Ratings Soar
NEW YORK (AP) - Green Bay's 34-31 win over Dallas was seen by an average of 48.5 million on Fox, the most-viewed NFL divisional playoff game ever. The game Sunday had a 26.1 rating and 46 share, the network said Monday, the highest-rated NFC divisional game since 1997. The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a program, and the share is the percentage watching a telecast among those homes with TVs on at the time. Pittsburgh's 18-16 victory over Kansas City, shifted to prime time Sunday night because of bad weather, was seen by 37.4 million people on NBC and its digital platform, including 37.1 million on the network.

Rebellion Out Of Fastpitch League
The National Pro Fastpitch League announced on Monday that the Pennsylvania Rebellion ownership has decided to forego franchise purchase and any continuation as an affiliate team in the NPF. The Rebellion have participated in NPF action since 2014, with their home stadium located in Washington, PA. Over that period of time, the Rebellion had a combined record of 42-104. They competed in the Championship Series of 2014, but failed to qualify for post season play the subsequent two seasons of 2015 and 2016. "We appreciate the participation of the Rebellion over the past three seasons of NPF action", commented league Commissioner, Cheri Kempf. "Women's professional sports remains a pioneering endeavor that includes challenges, and we understand the Rebellion ownership's decision to not pursue a franchise purchase at this time." "On that same note, the league is grateful for the owners and teams that continue to forge the path of securing this sport at the professional level," continued Kempf. "We are making positive gains and are confident of the difference this will make in the future careers of young softball players throughout the world." Pennsylvania Rebellion players who were currently under contract with the team became free agents upon the announcement of the dissolution.
