- Jarret Stoll has been snatched off waivers by the Minnesota Wild. Stoll, who had three points to his name this season with the Rangers, is still looking to bounce back after some trouble with the law earlier in 2015. The Wild are banking on his veteran presence, Stanley Cup rings and penalty killing acumen to improve their odds in the very competitive Central division. At the moment, Minnesota is a 14/1 shot on a number of Futures boards to lift the Stanley Cup this summer.
- King James scored 24 points and Kevin Love provided 20 to lead Cleveland to victory on Tuesday night. The Cavs (a -120 road favourite) stomped out the Celtics 89-77 at TD Garden to collect their third straight win and add to their lead over Chicago in the Eastern Conference standings. Avery Bradley put 17 points on the scoreboard for Boston who drop to 7-6 at home on the season.
- The Baltimore Ravens are looking to Ryan Mallett to help fix their QB depth issues. The 27-year-old Razorbacks alum started the season with the Houston Texans before being released later in the year. The Ravens are hurting in the pivot spot with Joe Flacco and Matt Schaub out with injury and Jimmy Clausen didn’t exactly set the world on fire when his side was blown out by Seattle 35-6 last weekend. The 4-9 Ravens are considered a seven point home underdog for Sunday’s clash with Kansas City.
