After trailing 2-0 to the Washington Capitals early in the third period, the Pittsburgh Penguins fought back to take a 3-2 lead. Late in Game 1, Pittsburgh netminder Matt Murray made a massive stop to keep the Penguins ahead.


After stopping the initial Matt Niskanen point shot, Murray dove across the crease to stop Brett Connolly with the inner part of his blocker.

Murray’s performance in the first game of this series was truly sensational. He was able to turn aside 30 of the 32 shots he faced. But it wasn’t just the number of shots, it was the quality of shots. Adding to his demo reel, Murray also made a similarly spectacular save in the second period.


The Capitals offense is going to be in tough if Murray continues to play like he did in Game 1. Despite letting in a goal on the first shot he faced, the two-time Stanley Cup Champion battled back and was Pittsburgh’s best player on Thursday night.

    EU summit: No breakthrough but new Brexit headache for Theresa May

    Theresa May has seen an EU summit pass with no Brexit breakthrough as she was hit by a growing backlash over plans to lengthen the UK's transition period. There had been hopes this week's gathering of EU leaders in Brussels - previously dubbed the "moment of truth" for Brexit - could overcome the impasse in negotiations. French President Emmanuel Macron told Mrs May to "come back with a solution based on the necessary political compromise on the UK side" in order to achieve a deal.

    Brexit's 'doom loop': the 'blood red lines' that drive May's DUP allies

    The DUP was the only major Northern Ireland party to campaign for Brexit in the 2016 referendum. When the Democratic Unionist party this week threatened to paralyse the government’s domestic agenda over Brexit, some Conservatives felt enough was enough and it was time to call the DUP’s bluff. Who exactly are these Northern Ireland unionists that prop up – and menace – Theresa May’s government?

    Indonesia using helicopters to spray disinfectant over areas with dead bodies from earthquake and tsunami

    Helicopters are spraying disinfectant on neighbourhoods in Palu, a city in Indonesia that was devastated by September's earthquake and tsunami, in a bid to combat disease risks from the thousands of bodies which are thought to still be buried in the worst hit areas. The country's disaster agency spokesperson, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, said it was necessary because of the large number of victims not recovered by the rescue operation that ended on 12 October. "Bombing and spraying of disinfectants is an effort to anticipate the spread of diseases through vectors such as flies, cockroaches, or mice," he said, adding that three neighbourhoods would be covered.

    Total ban on new petrol and diesel cars should be brought forward to 2032, MPs say

    A total ban on new petrol and diesel cars and vans should be brought forward to 2032 to boost sales of electric vehicles, MPs have urged. Ministers must "get a grip" and tackle a lack of charging points, one of the main barriers to people buying electric cars, the parliamentary Business Committee warned. The Government outlined a goal for an end to sales of new "conventional" petrol and diesel cars by 2040 as part of efforts to clean up transport which causes air pollution.

    French foie gras makers say they are ready if bird flu returns

    French foie gras makers, still recovering from two severe bird flu crises that ravaged flocks, said on Thursday they would be able to face any new outbreak thanks to strict security measures but prices will remain high to make up for increased costs. France, which has one of the largest poultry flocks in the European Union, is one of the countries that was most affected by the H5N8 bird flu virus that spread through wild birds across the continent last year. Of course some cases may break out at any time but by no means we will be in the same situation, we'll be able to deal with it very quickly," Marie-Pierre Pe, director of French foie gras makers group CIFOG, told reporters.

The clean-up operation is taking place on beaches in the glitzy resort of Saint-Tropez and nearby Ramatuelle, where pristine waters and mountainous backdrops draw tycoons and A-list celebrities. "Last year it was forest fires, now the pollution is coming from the sea," said Roland Bruno, mayor of Ramatuelle.

    The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday it will allow U.S. airlines and code-share partners to resume flights at three Ukrainian airports and over parts of the Black Sea, citing improved safety and security in parts of Ukraine. The FAA had barred flights over the war zones of the Crimea and Ukraine in April 2014, and expanded prohibitions after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down while it flew over eastern Ukraine, killing nearly 300 people on board.

    U.S. stocks are falling Thursday morning as interest rates resume their upward climb and several industrial companies post disappointing third-quarter results. Interest rates started rising a day ago after the Federal Reserve released minutes showing that a minority of its leaders think interest rates will need to keep rising to a level that slightly restricts economic growth. Slower economic growth would affect stocks because it means smaller corporate profits and less spending by consumers.

    Moment youth in South London pulls massive knife during altercation

    This is the moment a youth on a bike pulls a massive knife on a motorist in South London in the middle of the day. Footage captured yesterday (October 18) on Greyhound Lane in Streatham shows two men exiting a black Volkswagen that has pulled up to a side road. The men appear to catch the attention of two youths on bicycles, who stop in the middle of the road. It appears the group has an off-screen argument before one of the cyclists pulls a large knife from a sheath and chases the motorists. A standoff occurs as stunned bystanders witness the scene, which occurred at 4 pm. Another man intervenes in the heated moment and separates the group. The owner of the CCTV writes: "I heard a lot of shouting and was unaware as to what exactly was happening. "Playing back the CCTV, I could see two lads on bikes, one of which pulls out a knife in a sheath and chases off the two guy who got out of the car. "It was a 5th guy from across the road that broke up the fight and sent them on their way."

    Exclusive: U.S. sports leagues could see $4.2 billion annually from legal betting

    The four major U.S. professional sports leagues could reap a combined $4.2 billion annually as a result of legal sports betting, most of it indirectly from increased fan engagement, according to a casino industry survey to be released later on Thursday. The National Football League stands to make the most, with a projected $2.33 billion of additional annual revenue, according to the study seen by Reuters. Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League would account for the rest.
