STANLEY CUP FINALS
BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Bruins were able to claw back from deficits of 1-0, 4-2, and 5-4 during the most entertaining game of this year's Stanley Cup finals. Brent Seabrook gave Boston no time to mount another comeback.
Seabrook scored at 9:51 of overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 6-5 win over the Bruins, tying the series at two games apiece.
Patrick Sharp put the Hawks ahead 5-4 with a power-play goal midway through the third period, but Boston tied it for the final time when Johnny Boychuk scored 55 seconds later.
Patrick Kane assisted on Seabrook's game-winner after notching his first goal of the finals in the second period. Jonathan Toews (tayvz) also scored his first goal of the series and second of the playoffs to give Chicago its second lead of the night.
The Blackhawks' 4-2 cushion lasted until Patrice Bergeron (pah-TREE'S BEHR'-zhur-ahn) scored two straight goals, cashing in on a power play late in the second period before scoring early in the third.
The two clubs combined for 11 goals after scoring just 12 in the first three games.
Game 5 is Saturday in Chicago.
BOSTON (AP) -- NHL general managers have embraced many changes recommended by the competition committee, including hybrid icing and the mandatory use of visors for all players entering the league.
The group met Wednesday before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.
A blend of touch and no-touch icing that offers referees the discretion to blow a play dead will be in effect during the upcoming preseason. If the experiment is successful, hybrid icing will be implemented for the regular season, pending a vote by the league's board of governors.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Nashville Predators have signed defenseman Victor Bartley to a three-year, $2 million contract. The 25-year-old made his NHL debut this season and played in 24 games for the Predators, ranking fourth in average ice time with 19 minutes, 32 seconds.

Hiroki Kuroda (hih-ROH'-kee kuh-ROH'-dah) carried a shutout into the seventh and Ichiro Suzuki had three RBIs in the Yankees' 6-4 win over the Dodgers in Game 1. Kuroda limited his former team to a pair of runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 as the Yankees spoiled the Dodgers' first game in the Bronx since the 1981 World Series.
Chris Capuano came off the disabled list and led the Dodgers to a 6-0 victory in Game 2, holding the Yankees to three hits and no walks in six innings. Yasiel Puig (YAH'-see-ul pweeg) had five hits in the twinbill, including a solo homer in the nightcap.

Chris Davis leads the majors with 26 home runs after belting two more in Baltimore's 13-3 romp over Detroit. Davis launched a two-run homer and Taylor Teagarden added a three-run blast while Baltimore was scoring six times in the fourth.
Justin Masterson is 9-5 after allowing two runs while pitching into the seventh inning of Cleveland's 6-3 triumph over Kansas City. Michael Brantley hit a pair of solo homers for the Indians, who pulled within 3 1/2 games of the AL Central-leading Tigers.

Ian Desmond hit a grand slam in the 11th inning to complete Washington's rally in a 6-2 win at Philadelphia. The Phillies were one out away from completing a three-game sweep until Jayson Werth hit an RBI single off Jonathan Papelbon (PAP'-ul-bahn).

Madison Bumgarner won his third straight start and improved to 7-4 by limiting the Padres to two runs and three hits in seven innings.
Pinch-hitter Cody Ross smacked a three-run homer in the eighth inning to give Arizona a 3-1 victory over Miami. Marlins starter Jose Fernandez held the Diamondbacks to three hits in 7 1/3 shutout innings but walked two batters just before Ross went deep off reliever Mike Dunn.
Justin Morneau homered for the first time in almost two months, a two-run shot that helped Minnesota beat the White Sox 7-4. Brian Dozier reached base four times for the Twins, including a three-run homer in the second inning.
Mark Trumbo scampered home on Joe Saunders' wild pitch in the sixth inning, the only scoring in the Angels' 1-0 win against Seattle. Saunders went the distance on a six-hitter, but the Mariners could muster just two hits in seven innings against C.J. Wilson.
Rickie Weeks launched a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning before Aramis (ah-RAH'-mihs) Ramirez added a ninth-inning blast in Milwaukee's 3-1 verdict over Houston. Astros starter Erik Bedard left with a 1-0 lead after allowing four hits over a season-high 7 1/3 innings.

Ward would not say how Lloyd knew Hernandez and did not say if police told her how her son died. Earlier, an uncle said Lloyd had a connection to Hernandez but wouldn't elaborate.
Lloyd was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home. Police spent several hours at the home yesterday and returned there today.
Sports Illustrated, citing an unidentified source, reported Tuesday that Hernandez was not believed to be a suspect in what was being treated as a possible homicide.
