The first round of the NFL draft was Thursday night, and if the Ravens made their pick, it didn't happen until after our bedtime. Let me make it up to you. Keep an eye on our website Friday afternoon for my take.
 Ben Roethlisberger was suspended six games by the NFL after a 20-year-old college student accused him of sexual assault in a Georgia nightclub last month.

 After a minor hiccup in Game 1 and a change between the pipes, the Capitals have steamrolled their way to a 3-1 series lead over the Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs. Goalie Semyon Varlamov has stabilized the defensive end for the Caps, but scoring nearly five goals a game makes the goalie's job much easier. Look for the Caps to wrap this one up in Game 5.
