Man City crowned Premier League champions after United defeat

  Man City crowned Premier League champions after United defeat Manchester City have been crowned as the winners of the 2017-18 Premier League after rivals Man United slumped to defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Pep Guardiola's men now hold an unassailable 16-point lead at the top of the table, meaning that with just five games to play nobody can catch the side which has led the league uninterruptedl since the fifth round of fixtures. City could have sealed the title last week, but a spirited comeback from United in the Manchester derby to win 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium put celebrations on ice.

New Jersey Devils : Marcus Johansson ’s Season Could Be Over After Dirty Hit by Nick Villano. Schneider was injured on the Bruins second goal while trying to stretch across the crease. Hopefully we see Schneider back right after the All-Star break. If not, then the Devils need to brace for this

Taylor Hall and Keith Kinkaid both returned to Devils practice out of the All-Star break. Back to Main Menu. Entertainment Home. N.J.'s Best. If Kinkaid is cleared to play, he will start in goal on Tuesday in Buffalo. However, goalie Cory Schneider (groin) and forward Marcus Johansson (concussion) did not return to practice.

NEWARK, N.J. — Cory Schneider is replacing Keith Kinkaid in goal for the New Jersey Devils in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Coach John Hynes decided to make the move with New Jersey trailing 2-0 in the best-of-7 series.

Monday night's game will mark the return of forward Marcus Johansson to the lineup. He has been sidelined since late January with a concussion.

Johansson skated on the left wing with Pavel Zacha at center and Patrick Maroon on the right side in Monday's morning skate.

Miles Wood was dropped to the fourth line, where he will skate with Brian Boyle and Drew Stafford. Michael Grabner, who was acquired in mid-February from the Rangers, is not in the lineup.

Hynes also elected to go with six defensemen instead of the seven he used in Game 2. Mirco Mueller is a healthy scratch.

They were standing along the entrance tunnel at Prudential Center, moments after the Devils’ first postseason victory in almost six years, a 5-2 triumph over Tampa Bay. Before their names were announced as the stars of Game 3, Hall atop the leaderboard with three points and Schneider right behind with 34 saves, Hall wrapped an arm around his goalie’s sweaty shoulders and whispered into Schneider’s ear.
