DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Soaked in booze but drinking a Coke, Joey Logano fretted over how he and his new bride would celebrate his most significant victory.
"I don't know how to party," the 24-year-old said with a sheepish grin.
Winning the Daytona 500 will provide him the ultimate chance to unleash.
UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Eddie Lack didn't expect to share a shutout with Ryan Miller.
But Lack's 27 saves in relief proved to be exactly what the Vancouver Canucks needed on Sunday night.
Lack was perfect after Miller went down with an apparent leg injury early in the second period and the Canucks blanked the New York Islanders 4-0 to keep pace in the tight Western Conference playoff race.
BERLIN - Police say a fourth person has died from injuries suffered in an avalanche that struck five Italian skiers Saturday near the Great St. Bernhard Pass in the Swiss Alps.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Kyle Busch was taken to a hospital following a scary crash late in the Xfinity Series race on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway.
Busch's No. 54 Toyota shot straight through the frontstretch and slammed head-first into an interior wall. He could not get out of the car and pointed to his right leg. He was on the ground for several minutes and was in visible pain as he grabbed his leg.
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Forward Evander Kane had a difficult time adjusting to playing in what he called "a fishbowl" of a hockey-mad city like Winnipeg, and felt a change of scenery was long overdue.
The fourth player selected in the 2009 draft will get the opportunity to enjoy a "fresh start" — a phrase Kane repeated three times during his introductory news conference Saturday — in Buffalo as a key piece on a Sabres team rebuilding from scratch.
MIAMI - Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat underwent testing at a hospital Thursday to assess a medical issue related to the area around his lungs, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Playing without three of their top defenceman, the Vancouver Canucks had one of those character games that might help them get back to the playoffs.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Henrik Lundqvist has been among the NHL's best goalies lately. Ottawa's Craig Anderson won't be joining his New York Rangers counterpart at the all-star game, but he sure is making a good case that he should be.
Anderson made 34 saves for his first shutout of the season, Jason Spezza scored twice and the Senators beat the surging Rangers 3-0 on Thursday night.
BOSTON - The Montreal Canadiens have struggled so much this season that even the Boston fans couldn't muster much of a hatred for their Original Six rivals.
So the crowd yelled derogatory cheers about Tim Tebow instead.
"They've got a lot going on right now, and I think their situation is a little bit different," Bruins coach Claude Julien said Thursday night after Boston beat the embattled Canadiens 2-1.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - New York forward Carmelo Anthony left the Knicks' game against Memphis on Thursday night after spraining his right ankle early in the second half.
Knicks officials said Anthony wouldn't return and that X-rays were negative.
Anthony, the Knicks' leading scorer at 26.6 points a game, injured the ankle on New York's end of the floor and immediately limped to the bench. He was taken to the locker room moments later.
He had 14 points and three rebounds when he left the game.
