Amare Stoudemire


On the ice, the Rangers beat the Islanders 6-5, Calgary bested Boston in overtime 4-3, Montreal blanked Detroit 2-0, Winnipeg edged Edmonton in a shootout 5-4, Colorado defeated Arizona 5-2, Vancouver topped Minnesota 3-2, Carolina doubled up Ottawa 6-3, and it was Los Angeles over Tampa Bay 3-2.

For the first time since they left Lake Placid with their Olympic gold medals, all 19 surviving members of the 1980 USA Hockey Team are returning to relive their "Miracle on Ice" moment.

Groups of players have gathered in Lake Placid or other parts of the country over the last 35 years. But the Olympic Regional Development Authority says the anniversary celebration Saturday will be the first time the entire squad will be together in the host village of 1980 Winter Games.

The event will be in the arena where the team beat the odds and defeated the Soviet Union 4-3.

The evening will conclude with the raising of fallen teammate Bob Suter's jersey to the rafters. Suter is the first member of the team to die, suffering a heart attack last September at age 57.

In the NBA, Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points, J.R. Smith added 18 and the New York Knicks overcame a 22-point deficit without All-Star Carmelo Anthony to beat the Cavaliers 102-97 last night.

The Knicks trailed 52-30 in the second quarter of this one when Anthony injured his right knee. He stumbled and fell awkwardly after catching a pass and did not return.

The Miami Heat set a franchise record with their 15th consecutive victory.
