LOS ANGELES — U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter called in 28 players Friday for three critical World Cup qualifiers and among those summoned were Sergiño Dest, Weston McKennie, Miles Robinson and Jordan Morris, who are all returning to the national team following injuries or suspensions.

TAMPA, Fla. — As the Lightning reach the midway point of the regular season, defenseman Victor Hedman is in a familiar place: the middle of the Norris Trophy conversation. Hedman has been a finalist for the Norris, given to the league’s top defenseman, for five straight years. He will probably make it six in a few months. “When you’re filling out those ballots, he should be on it every year,” ...

The Florida Panthers knew the good times couldn’t last forever — at least not in the way they went for the last three weeks. They knew they couldn’t average six goals per game for the rest of the season or threaten 10-goal outbursts every time they take the ice. The last three weeks were something of a miracle — a legitimately historic scoring binge, which vaulted the Panthers to the top of ...

A 44-year-old woman in a golf cart drove through a police barricade set up for a street art show in Naples, Fla., running over the foot of a police lieutenant, because it was “the only way to get to the parking garage.” She failed a field sobriety test, WBBH-TV reported, and is facing a DUI charge.

SEATTLE — At his first weekly news conference of 2021 in early September, Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner preempted the first question with an announcement. “I thought about doing something different this year,” Wagner said.

TAMPA, Fla. — The Lightning knew they would see a motivated Stars team on Saturday night at Amalie Arena following Dallas’ 7-1 blowout loss to the Panthers on Friday. Dallas, which entered on a six-game road losing streak, put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to get past Tampa Bay, which won its third straight with a 3-1 victory over the Stars. The first 14 minutes of the game were quiet, but ...

SUNRISE, Fla. — It has become a familiar sound in Sunrise since the NHL season restarted last month following an uptick in COVID-19 cases around the league: The Florida Panthers pile up goals and creep their way toward history, and the crowd rewards them with a simple chant. “We want 10! We want 10!” On some nights, it takes until the third period. Sometimes, it pops up in the second. In the ...

FORT WORTH, Texas — As a result of playing football, Ralph Neely had dementia, a bad back, a bad neck, replaced knees, a hip and a shoulder, scoliosis of the spine, and by the end he was in so much pain he told his wife he no longer wanted to live. "He said he would do it all over again," said Neely's widow, Janis, in a phone interview. Last week, one of the greatest players in the history of ...

LOS ANGELES — Natalie Simon has spent much of her life on a soccer field, yet in those 32 years she's rarely seen another person who looks like her. "I haven't had anyone to really identify with," said Simon, who is Black and Native American. "I was always the only Black person on every team I played on. I was always the token Black girl." It was that way in high school in Fort Lauderdale, ...
