Sheahan, Jarry Lead Penguins Past Columbus
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Riley Sheahan scored two goals in the first period, rookie Tristan Jarry had 35 saves and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2 on Sunday night. Jake Guentzel had a goal and two assists, and Brian Dumoulin and Zach Aston-Reese also scored for the Penguins. They have won five straight and 10 of their last 12. The win in front of a sellout crowd at Nationwide Arena moved them past Washington into first place in the Metropolitan Division. The 22-year-old Jarry played well standing in for starter Matt Murray, who got a rest as Pittsburgh played the second leg of a back-to-back and its third game in four days. It was Jarry's first NHL action in a month after going 3-0 in three starts for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL.

Dillon Drives No. 3 to Victory Lane at Daytona 500
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The No. 3 car found its way to victory lane at the Daytona 500, 20 years after Dale Earnhardt's only victory in "The Great American Race." Austin Dillon grabbed the lead on the final lap in overtime and took the checkered flag, 17 years to the day Earnhardt was killed in an accident on the final lap at Daytona. Dillon got a push from teammate Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. that helped him get to leader Aric Almirola. Dillon spun Almirola then whizzed on by to give his grandfather, owner Richard Childress, an iconic victory in that beloved No. 3. Wallace finished second after becoming the first black driver in the Daytona field since 1969. Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Joey Logano and Chris Buscher.

Bubba Wins At Riviera

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bubba Watson has ended a two-year victory drought by earning his third triumph at Riviera. He closed with a 2-under 69 for a two-stroke win against Kevin Na and Tony Finau. Watson seized control with two par putts and a bunker shot he holed for birdie on the par-3 14th hole. It was Watson's first victory since Riviera in 2016 and puts him into the top 50, making him eligible for the World Golf Championship next weekend in Mexico. He also reached double digits in PGA titles.

LeBron Tops Stephen In NBA All-Star Game
LOS ANGELES (AP) - LeBron James got the better of Stephen Curry in the NBA All-Star game at Los Angeles. James scored 10 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter, including a go-ahead, finger-roll layup with 34.5 seconds left to lead Team LeBron to a 148-145 win over Team Stephen. James was named the game MVP for the third time, and the first since the league broke with tradition by having the team captains select their rosters. Russell Westbrook hit a layup to put Team LeBron ahead by three in the closing seconds. Team Stephen couldn't get a good look for a tying three at the buzzer. Damian Lillard and DeMar DeRozan each had 21 points to lead Team Stephen.
