NHL Playoffs, NBA & MLB scores & Forbes Most Influential Athletes: 4/26, Vol. 129, 1st Edition

One day an angel said quietly, that soon he would bring something special to me, and of all those wonderful gifts he bring, who could imagine, who would imagine, who could imagine a king! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Le’ Go!

There was only one game on frozen hard court last night in the National Hockey League, but it was a closeout game 7 so winner takes all and moves on to the next round as defending champion Boston Bruins WILL NOT defend their championship as the Washington Capitals slipped past the Bruins 2-1 in overtime as Matt Hendricks and Joel Ward each came up with a goal apiece to the help the Capitals to continue to skate in the playoffs.

Now that all playoff seeds are set in the National Basketball Association, many teams are resting their star players but games march on since some teams are trying to move up in seeding’s and some are playing for pride as the Washington Wizards crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-85 as John Wall continues his hot streak with a game high of 21 points and he handed out 13 dimes, the Chicago Bulls knocked off the Indiana Pacers 92-87 with 20 points from Kyle Kover, the Charlotte Bobcats couldn’t handle J. J. Reddick’s career high of 31 points of the Orlando Magic and lost 102-95 as the Bobcats need to win their last game of the season tomorrow night to avoid having the worst win percentage in NBA history, if you think they can of can’t respond on Twitter @ #justonemoregame, the Philadelphia 76er’s edged out the Milwaukee Bucks 90-85 with a career high in points from Evan Turner to go along with his 13 boards, while the Lob City Clippers came up short against the New York Knicks 99-93 with 21 points from J. R. Smith, the Denver Nuggets outlast the Oklahoma City Thunder 106-101 as Ty Lawson netted 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs got past the Phoenix Suns 110-106 as Shannon Brown poured in 21 points and as Steve Nash potentially played his last game in Phoenix.

There were a plethora of games on the diamond yesterday in Major League Baseball for round one scores as the Chicago White Sox needed 14 innings but still came up a weeee bit short against the Oakland A’s 5-4 as Paul Kernerko homered, the Colorado Rockies knocked off the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 as the Rockies break up a not hit bid, the LA Angels was defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 with a homerun from Ben Zobrist, the Houston Astros muscled past the Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 as Jose Altuve hit a career high of four hits, while the Toronto Blue Jays were SHUT OUT by the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 as Wilson Betemit, the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals blasted the Chicago Cubs 5-1 as David Freese launched a homerun, the Kansas City Royals pounded the Cleveland Indians with 2 homeruns from Billy Butler and the Philadelphia Phillies pummeled the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2 as Cole Hamel went 8 strong innings and struck out 7 to wrap up series one of your MLB scores.

In sporting news, Forbes released their annual Most Influential Athletes and NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson ranks #1 as the guy next door, while one of the most polarizing athlete’s Tim Tebow came in 2nd , while the guy who replaced Tebow in Denver, Payton Manning came in 3rd, Manny Pacquiao 4th, Tom Brady 5th, Aaron Rodgers, 6th, coming in at the 7th spot is Dale Earnhardt , Jr., Drew Brees settles in at #8, Payton’s brother, Eli makes a home at #9 and rounding out the top ten is Linsanity himself, Jeremy Lin.
