There will be a 14-year-old in the U.S. Open

From Comcast SportsNet
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Paul Casey has withdrawn from the U.S. Open, paving the way for a 14-year-old from China to be what officials believe to be the youngest player in championship history. Andy Zhang lost in a playoff at a sectional qualifier in Florida. He was the second alternate when the week began at Olympic Club. Brandt Snedeker also withdrew Monday. Casey pulled out because of a recurring shoulder injury. Zhang has been part of the IMG Leadbetter Academy in Florida and is based in the Orlando area. Tadd Fujikawa previously was the youngest in the modern era. He was 15 when he qualified for the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

Prediction recap: A rough night for the Caps

Prediction recap: A rough night for the Caps

The Caps suffered a rough loss at the hands of the Penguins on Saturday and now sit just two games away from elimination.

Here’s a recap of the three bold predictions for Game 2.

1. Both teams will get a power play in the first period - Wrong

The referees apparently noticed the discrepancy in penalties from Game 1. The Caps had two power plays in the first period, but Washington did not take a penalty until midway through the second.

2. Washington will get at least 12 shots on goal in the first period - Correct

The first period was indeed the Caps’ best as they poured 16 shots on goal. It could have been even more with 30 total shot attempts. Unfortunately for Washington, they were unable to get any of those 16 shots into the net.

3. Andre Burakovsky, Lars Eller or Tom Wilson will score - Wrong

The third line did just about everything they could but score, especially in the first period. Eller even hit the post, but  Marc-Andre Fleury managed to keep that line out of the net.

2017 Results: This may not have been the worst night in terms of my predictions, but it was perhaps the most disappointing.

Correct: 10
Wrong: 13
Push: 1
