Lost Weekend For The Penguins
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sean Couturier beat Matt Murray with 3 seconds remaining in overtime and the Philadelphia Flyers put together an improbable rally to edge the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 on Sunday night. James van Riemsdyk tied the score with 18 seconds left in regulation when Murray's glove couldn't quite reach van Riemsdyk's wrist shot from the slot. The team traded a flurry of quality chances in the extra period before Couturier danced around Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby on the rush then sent a shot over Murray's stick to give Philadelphia's fading playoff hopes a needed jolt. Carter Hart finished with 41 saves for his first victory since Feb. 17 as the Flyers put together a comeback that echoed their stunning rally in their stadium series meeting with the Penguins last month. Philadelphia scored twice in the final 3:04 of regulation before winning it in overtime. Teddy Blueger, starting on the second line in place of injured Evgeni Malkin, scored Pittsburgh's lone goal as the Penguins managed just one point out of a pair of home games during the weekend. Murray, who was pulled after allowing four goals on 13 shots in a loss to St. Louis in Saturday, bounced back by stopping 36 shots but couldn't get a handle on Couturier's winner.

NCAA Big Dance Is Set
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - For the second time in NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament history one conference has produced three No. 1 seeds. ACC powerhouses Duke, Virginia and North Carolina join West Coast Conference standing Gonzaga as the top seeds in the tournament. The ACC joins the 2009 Big East as the only conferences with a trio of No. 1s. Duke is No. 1 in the East, followed by Michigan State, LSU and Florida State. The Blue Devils took the top spot after winning the ACC Tournament. Virginia heads the South Regional and is followed by Tennessee, Purdue and Kansas State. The Cavaliers and Volunteers were No. 1 in the AP poll at various points this season. North Carolina heads a Midwest Regional that includes No. 2 Kentucky, No. 3 Houston and No. 4 Kansas. Of the four, the Cougars were the only team to advance to its conference tournament title game. The West is headed by Gonzaga, which is just ahead of Michigan, Texas Tech and Florida State. Bubble teams that made the tournament include St. John's, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Florida and Temple. Georgetown, Xavier, Creighton, and North Carolina State failed to join the 68-team tournament, nor did Clemson, TCU, Texas, Indiana, Alabama and Memphis.
