Lundqvist made 30 saves in shutting out the Red Wings for the second time this season, as New York completed a three-game season-series sweep of its Original Six rival. The Swedish goalie is one win shy of tying Mike Richter’s franchise record of 301. He caught Rangers great Ed Giacomin for the club mark in shutouts.

The Utes, who will also face No. 8 UCLA in the meet, traditionally have struggled at Michigan where they are just 3-6. The meet also represents Utah’s closest competition based on rankings since their 197.0-196.3 loss at Stanford in which the Utes ha...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The junior forward surged up through the contact and got the ball to fall through the net. Pollard spun and took long strides to the free-throw line. He threw his fist through the air three times in quick succession, unleashing aggression that had been bubbling for nearly four quarters of basketball.

He stood two feet behind the arc, and the play had not been drawn up for him, but the clock was running thin. So he lifted and fired Monday night at the Huntsman Center. The ball went through the hoop. The Bruins’ bench erupted, swarming Young near the top of the key. Logan players sauntered to their bench, stunned, and protested that there still was time on the clock.

But like a lot of circumstances the Utes experienced this year, Sunday’s contest didn’t go as planned as they fell to the Bruins 62-52 in front of 934 at the Huntsman Center. Seniors Michelle Plouffe, Ariel Reynolds and Ciera Dunbar were honored before the game, but they would’ve rather had a post-game celebration.
