NHL Playoffs & NBA scores & Kentucky starting five says goodbye: 4/18, Vol. 123, 1st Edition

I’m carrying a load that’s too heavy for me, have nowhere to go so I’m down on my knees, I’m trying to see the forest but there’s this one tree. Can’t understand why I’m sinking so deep, I need an angel, I’m calling on an angel, send me an angel….right now! 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!  Let’s Get It Started!
There were two game three’s and one game four in the National Hockey League last night as the Florida Panthers eked out a one goal win over the New Jersey Devils 4-3 as the Panthers stormed back after being down by three goals to take a 2-1 series lead, the Nashville Predators skated past the Detroit Red Wings 3-1 as three Predators scored the goals to take a commanding 3-1 series lead and the Phoenix Coyotes needed overtime to get past the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 as Rostislav Klesa handed out two assist to help his Predators lead the series 2-1.

After a slew of games Monday night in the National Basketball Association, there were only five games on the hard court, but we had some good ones as the Indiana Pacers pulled away from the Philadelphia 76er’s in 4th quarter to get the win 102-97 with 24 points from Danny Granger, the Cleveland Cavaliers were literally spanked, simply befuddled and just plain ole embarrassed by the Detroit Pistons 116-77 as rookie Brandon Knight had a game high of 28 points, while the first nationally televised pitted the Boston Celtics against the New York Knicks and  the Knicks was manhandling the Celtics early on, but the Celtics stormed back but came up a weee bit short as the Knicks get past the Celtics 118-110 with a triple double from Carmelo Anthony as he poured in 35 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and handed out 10 assists, the Memphis Grizzlies handled the Minnesota Timberwolves 91-84 with 28 points from Rudy Gay and in the second nationally televised game, the San Antonio Spurs avenged an crushing lost to the LA Lakers and manhandled the Lake Show 112-91 with a double-double from Tony Parker with a game high of 28 points and dished out 13 dimes.

In sporting news, after a phenomenal year that concluded with a national championship, University of Kentucky five starting players announced all together in a nationally televised news conference, they were declaring for the NBA draft.  Freshmen Anthony Davis, MVP of the Final Four, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague and sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb will leave the program and a coach that provided them with opportunity to win at the highest level in college basketball.  The five starters combined for 62 of Kentucky’s 67 points in the title game and the program will lose 93.3% of points, 94.5% of individual rebounds and 96.2% of assists with the players leaving, but Calipari is already loading up for next season with top prospects committing to the program.

The National Football League released the 2012 schedule with some notable Week 1 matchups as the Dallas Cowboys will help kick off the season on Wednesday, September 5 against the defending champion New York Giants, the Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against Payton Manning’s new in the Denver Broncos in the Sunday Night matchup and Monday Night Football will feature a double header as the Cincinnati Bengals go up against the Baltimore Ravens and the San Diego Chargers play the Oakland Raiders.
