UNDATED (AP)— In the Eastern Conference, the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers will meet in the second round starting Sunday in New York. The Knicks eliminated Boston in six games, 88-80, and Indiana held Atlanta to just nine points in the second quarter to also dispatch the Hawks in six games, 81-73.

PITTSBURGH (AP)— Sidney Crosby scored twice in his return to the ice from a broken jaw but the Pittsburgh Penguins squandered a two-goal lead. Kyle Okposo scored his first career playoff goal with 7:37 left and the New York Islanders beat the Penguins 4-3 to head back home for Game 3 on Sunday with the series even at a game apiece.

MONTREAL (AP) — Ryan White started a three-goal second period and goalie Carey Price was back in top form with 29 saves and the Montreal Canadiens downed the Ottawa Senators 3-1 to even their playoff series at a game apiece. There was some rough play after Eric Gryba's hit that saw Montreal's Lars Eller carried off the Bell Centre ice on a stretcher in the series opener Thursday night. Gryba drew a two-game suspension.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)— The 139th Kentucky Derby will be run today over a mile and a-quarter at Churchill Downs. A field of 19 is topped by morning-line favorite Orb with the undefeated Verrazano also expected to get plenty of wagering action in the first leg of the Triple Crown.
