Mark Kiszla, sports columnist : The Avs are the team with more talent. The Lightning is the team with more belief. So what wins out? Talent, provided it steps up for Colorado. I’m not pointing a finger of blame here. But defenseman Cale Makar has done everything coach Jared Bednar could ask. And more. Nathan MacKinnon, who has tallied only a single goal in this series, needs to take on a heavier burden. The Lightning has gotten in his grill (here’s looking at you, Patrick Maroon). My concern? The pounding has started to get inside MacK’s head. There’s no time to be flustered now. Ryan O’Halloran, sports reporter : Through five games, Mikko Rantanen leads the Avalanche with eight points so you’re probably asking, “Hey, genius, No. 96 is doing his job.” Kind of, sort of. Eight Avs players have scored at least one goal in the series and Rantanen isn’t one of them. For the playoffs, he has five goals among his 25 points. He is a natural goal scorer and does terrific work on the … [Read more...] about Game 6 debate: Which Avs player needs to step up for Colorado to stave off Tampa Bay?

Eight people who took care of football legend Diego Maradona will be tried in Argentina courts for homicide, according to a ruling released on Wednesday following an investigation into his November 2020 death due to cardiac arrest . In the 236-page document seen by Reuters , the judge in charge of the case questioned "the behaviors — active or by omission — of each of the accused which led to and contributed to the realization of the harmful result." Simple homicide The ruling said that eight people including doctors, nurses and a psychologist who cared for Maradona at the time of his death are accused of "simple homicide," a serious charge that means taking a life with intent. A medical board appointed to investigate Maradona's death concluded in 2021 that the soccer star's medical team acted in an "inappropriate, deficient and reckless manner."
