DENVER (AP) — The puck hasn't even dropped in the playoff series against Colorado and the St. Louis Blues have already gotten what captain Ryan O'Reilly labeled a “bad bounce.” For a second straight day, their leading scorer, David Perron, appeared on the NHL's “players unavailable due to COVID protocol” list. His status for Game 1 of the first-round series against the top-seeded Avalanche on Monday remains uncertain. His status moving forward, too. Perron's absence would be a big blow for the Blues, who also have two other players on the list in forward Nathan Walker and defenseman Jake Walman. Perron led the Blues with 58 points — 19 goals and 39 assists in 56 games. “Phenomenal player," O'Reilly said. “It’s just such a bad bounce. There’s not much you can do about it and we have to stick with it and get through this while he’s gone." On the other side of the ice, the Avalanche are getting back one of their top scorers in Nathan MacKinnon, who's rested and ready to go. He missed four of the last five regular season games with a lower-body injury. The speedy forward watched last week as his team clinched the Presidents' Trophy for the best regular season record. This from a squad that in 2016-17 — coach Jared Bednar's first season in charge — finished last with 48 points over 82 games. The Avs had 82 points in 56 contests this season. “We’ve put ourselves in a good spot and we’re excited to go out and play,” Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said. O’Reilly, who was drafted by Colorado and spent six seasons with the team, raised a few eyebrows with a recent comment. “We’re going to have some fun and we’re going to beat them,” boasted O’Reilly, whose team won the Cup in 2019. It certainly didn't bother MacKinnon. “We think we can beat them, too, so it’s all good," MacKinnon said. This marks the first time Colorado and St. Louis have met in the postseason since 2001, when the Avs beat the Blues in the Western Conference final on their way to hoisting the Stanley Cup. That Avalanche squad was led by Joe Sakic, who’s now the general manager and responsible for assembling this roster. “Every year it feels like we’re a little bit closer, getting better and better as a team," said MacKinnon, whose team was besieged by injuries in the playoffs last season and lost to Dallas in Game 7 of the second round. “I felt like last year was the first year we had a really, really good chance ... and this year it feels the same. Obviously it doesn’t mean anything — we’re playing an amazing team.” SEASON SERIES The Avalanche went 5-3 against St. Louis in the regular season, outscoring the Blues by a 26-21 margin. They outshot them 259-219. “We have a familiarity with them, but I think they can say the same,” MacKinnon said. TARASENKO UPDATE The Blues may be moving closer to having back forward Vladimir Tarasenko, who’s been recently sidelined by a lower-body injury. Coach Craig Berube planned to talk to Tarasenko heading into Monday’s playoff opener to see how he’s feeling. “It would be nice to have him back, just the presence of him,” O’Reilly said. “He’s a huge piece of this team.” THE GOALIES Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer is coming off a sensational regular season that figures to put in the conversation for the Vezina Trophy. He had a career-best 30 wins and a 1.95 goals-against average. Grubauer's been tough to beat at home, too, with a 13-0-1 mark in his last 14 appearances at Ball Arena. Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington will try to return to the form that helped the team win the Cup in '19 (16-10, 2.46 GAA) and forget about his shaky performance last postseason (0-5, 4.72 GAA). BRING THE NOISE Both Colorado and St. Louis recently received authorization to increase attendance at home games in time for the postseason. The Avalanche will welcome 7,750 fans per game at Ball Arena, which is 42.3% of the overall venue capacity. The Blues have been approved for 9,000 fans — nearly 50 percent of Enterprise Center. CUP EXPERIENCE Of the 17 players on the Blues' roster who've won the Cup, 16 are from the ‘19 title team, according to the NHL. The other player is left wing Kyle Clifford, who won the championship with the Los Angeles Kings in ’12 and '14. The Avs have three players who've won: Brandon Saad with the Chicago Blackhawks (2013, ’15), along with Andre Burakovsky and Grubauer, who earned the Cup with Washington in ’18. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Pat Graham, The Associated Press
RADNOR, Pa., May 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Peloton Interactive, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON) (“Peloton”) on behalf of those who purchased or acquired Peloton securities between September 11, 2020 and May 5, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 28, 2021 Website: https://www.ktmc.com/peloton-interactive-class-action-lawsuit?utm_source=PR&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=peloton Contact: James Maro, Esq.

Peloton also provides connected fitness subscriptions and access to all live and on-demand classes. Peloton launched the Tread+ treadmill in 2018. At that time, it was called the “Tread.” Peloton renamed its signature treadmill in September 2020 to “Tread +.” On Wednesday, May 5, 2021, Peloton announced voluntary recalls of both its Tread+ and Tread treadmill machines over safety concerns. Peloton also advised customers who have the products to immediately stop using them and contact Peloton for a full refund. Peloton’s Chief Executive Officer, John Foley said in a statement, “I want to be clear, Peloton made a mistake in our initial response to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s request that we recall the Tread+.” The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) in addition to the tragic death of a child, Peloton’s Tread+ had caused a serious safety threat to children and pets as there were multiple incidents of injury to both; (2) safety was not a priority to Peloton as the defendants were aware of serious injuries and death resulting from the Tread+ yet did not recall or suggest a halt of the use of the Tread+; (3) as a result of the safety concerns, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) declared the Tread+ posed a serious risk to public health and safety resulting in its urgent recommendation for consumers with small children to cease using the Tread+; (4) the CPSC also found a safety threat to Tread+ users if they lost their balance; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ statements about Peloton’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. Peloton investors may, no later than June 28, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class.

The European Union needs to dramatically toughen weak CO2 targets for commercial vans to spur a shift to electric models and phase out fossil-fuel sales entirely by 2035, European campaign group Transport and Environment (T&E) said on Monday. T&E said an analysis of van sales in 2020 showed no change in CO2 emissions from 2017 and found the EU's CO2 targets are so weak that most manufacturers can meet them without selling a single zero-emission van. But electric van sales have languished at about 2% of the market.
The U.N. Security Council and Muslim nations convened emergency meetings Sunday to demand a stop to civilian bloodshed as Israeli warplanes carried out the deadliest single attacks in nearly a week of unrelenting Hamas rocket barrages and Israeli airstrikes. President Joe Biden gave no signs of pressuring Israel to agree to an immediate cease-fire despite new calls from some Democrats for the Biden administration to get more involved. His ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told an emergency high-level meeting of the Security Council that the United States was “working tirelessly through diplomatic channels" to stop the fighting. But as fighting in Israel and Gaza surged to its worst levels since 2014 and the international outcry grew, the Biden administration — determined to wrench U.S. foreign policy focus away from the Middle East and Afghanistan — showed no immediate sign of deepening its involvement. Diplomatic appeals by other countries for Hamas and Israel to stop their fire showed no sign of progress. Thomas-Greenfield warned that the return to armed conflict would only put a negotiated two-state solution to the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict even further out of reach. And in Israel, Hady Amr, a deputy assistant dispatched by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken to try to de-escalate the crisis, met with Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who thanked the U.S. for its support. Blinken himself headed out Sunday on an unrelated tour of Nordic countries. He made calls from the plane to Egypt and other nations working to broker a cease-fire, telling Egypt that all parties “should de-escalate tensions and bring a halt to the violence.” Rep. Adam Schiff, Democratic chairman of the House intelligence committee, on Sunday joined Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, in calling on Biden to step up pressure on both sides to end current fighting and revive talks to resolve Israel's conflicts and flashpoints with the Palestinians. “I think the administration needs to push harder on Israel and the Palestinian Authority to stop the violence, bring about a cease-fire, end these hostilities, and get back to a process of trying to resolve this long-standing conflict,” Schiff, a California Democrat, told CBS's “Face the Nation.” Biden administration officials have urged calm but said nothing publicly about prodding Israel immediately to go along with a push by Egypt and others for a cease-fire. Thomas-Greenfield said U.S. diplomats were engaging with Israel, Egypt and Qatar, along with the U.N. Israeli airstrikes on Gaza City flattened three buildings and killed at least 42 people Sunday, medics said, bringing the toll since Hamas and Israel opened their air and artillery battles to at least 188 killed in Gaza and eight in Israel. Some 55 children in Gaza and a 5-year-old boy in Israel were among the dead. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis in a televised address Sunday that Israel “wants to levy a heavy price” on Gaza's militant Hamas rulers. That will “take time,” Netanyahu said, signaling the war would rage on for now. Representatives of Muslim nations met to demand Israel halt attacks that are killing Palestinian civilians in the crowded Gaza strip. The meeting of the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation also saw Turkey and some others criticize a U.S.-backed push under which the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and other Islamic nations signed bilateral deals with Israel to normalize their relations, stepping over the wreckage of moribund international efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians long-term. “The massacre of Palestinian children today follows the purported normalization,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said. At the virtual meeting of the Security Council, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the U.N. was actively engaging all parties for an immediate cease-fire. Returning to the scenes of Palestinian militant rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes in the fourth such war between Israel and Hamas, “only perpetuates the cycles of death, destruction and despair, and pushes farther to the horizon any hopes of coexistence and peace,” Guterres said. Eight foreign ministers spoke at the Security Council session, reflecting the seriousness of the conflict, with almost all urging an end to the fighting. Efforts by China, Norway and Tunisia to get the U.N.’s most powerful body to issue a statement, including a call for the cessation of hostilities, have been blocked so far by the United States, Israel's closest ally. Diplomats say the U.S. is concerned it could interfere with diplomatic efforts to stop the violence Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, had thrown U.S. support solidly behind Israel, enthusiastically welcoming Netanyahu as an ally in Trump's focus on confronting Iran. Trump gave little time to efforts by past U.S. administrations to push peace accords between Israel and the Palestinians, instead encouraging and rewarding Arab nations that signed two-country normalizations deals with Israel. Biden, instead, calls Middle East and Central Asia conflicts a distraction from U.S. foreign policy priorities, including competition with China. He's sought to calm some conflicts and extricate the U.S. from others, including ending U.S. military support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen, planning to pull U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and trying to return to a nuclear deal with Iran. Biden officials haven't listed deeper Israel-Palestinian peace efforts at the top of their agenda. The problem won't go away, said Tamara Cofman Wittes, a former deputy assistant secretary of state for the Middle East in the Obama administration. Current fighting “reveals how deeply unstable is the ‘status quo’ between Israelis and Palestinians, and how urgently a new political path is needed to move this conflict toward negotiated resolution,” she said. ___ Knickmeyer reported from Oklahoma City and Lederer from New York.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Alex Bowman parked the No. 48 Chevrolet in its familiar spot in victory lane at Dover International Speedway, leading a dominant outing for Hendrick Motorsports on Sunday. Bowman led Hendrick Motorsports to a sensational 1-2-3-4 finish in the NASCAR Cup Series races. Kyle Larson was second, Chase Elliott third and William Byron fourth. How hot was Bowman? His Chevy caught fire after the race. “Help me Tom Cruise, I’m on fire,” he said, channeling Ricky Bobby. Bowman won his second race of the season and passed 1,000 laps led in his career. But the victory celebration at the Monster Mile had to seem familiar for Hendrick Motorsports. Jimmie Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion now in IndyCar, won a track-record 11 times at Dover in the 48. Turns out, Johnson’s successor is just as adept at handling the rigors of the concrete mile track. “Best race track on the schedule,” Bowman said. Bowman has followed two of NASCAR’s biggest superstars, first taking the wheel of the No. 88 after Dale Earnhardt Jr. retired and made the move to the 48 this season. He’s tried to escape their large shadows -- but will gladly take the checkered flag. Bowman came from nowhere with 10 laps to go to win in April at Richmond and stole his first win of the season. Bowman joined Martin Truex Jr. as the only driver this season with multiple victories. A year after fans were not allowed to attend and Dover held two Cup races on the same weekend, a sellout crowd of 20,000 fans was announced at the Monster Mile and they were ready to bust loose. Going mostly maskless — though Miles the Monster wore his — fans formed a deep line at the Chase Elliott souvenir hauler inside the fan zone. Dover also partnered with the Delaware Division of Public Health and about 100 fans received the one-shot Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine on Sunday and another 50 or so did the same a day earlier during the Xfinity race. While 20,000 fans were certainly dwarfed by the six-figure crowds that jammed Dover in the early aughts, this crowd was more festive compared to recent years. At least one fan in the grandstands dressed as Kyle Busch, others hugged and chugged beers, and some were comfortable asking strangers to snap photos as they posed for pictures in front of the 46-foot, car-crushing Monster statue. They watched Larson lead a parade for all but a handful of laps into the third stage. Larson, who on Saturday made a virtual visit with students at the Urban Youth Racing School in Philadelphia, won the first two stages of the race and seemed poised to turn this race into a rout. Bowman spoiled the run when he beat the No. 5 off pit road and led the final 98 laps. Larson led a race-high 263 laps. “Their team just did a good job on getting control on the pit stop,” Larson said. “I feel like I did everything I could.” WHO’S HOT Hendrick Motorsports is the first team to finish 1-2-3-4 since Jack Roush in 2005. HMS led 382 of the 400 laps. WHO’S NOT Aric Almirola’s woeful season continued at Dover when his No. 10 Ford slammed into the wall with less than 100 laps left in the race. Almirola crashed out for the second straight week and the Stewart-Haas Racing driver has only one top-10 finish in 2021. “My body’s hurting,” Almirola said. “It doesn’t want to take any more hard hits like that.” DOVER AND OUT Dover wrapped its only NASCAR weekend of the season. The track traditionally held two NASCAR weekends but moved one race date to Nashville Superspeedway. Nashville will have a Cup race on June 20. The 1.33-mile concrete track was built in 2001 by Dover Motorsports and hosted NASCAR and IndyCar events until 2011. Nashville Superspeedway held Xfinity and Truck events, as well as IndyCar races from 2001 until 2011. Dover hosted one race weekend in 1969 and 1970 and then held two races every season from 1971 to 2020. UP NEXT NASCAR heads to Texas and the Circuit of the Americas for a road course race. COTA joined Indianapolis and Road America in rural Wisconsin as new road course events on a 2021 schedule that already included Sonoma Raceway, Watkins Glen and the Charlotte Roval. _____ More AP auto racing: https://apnews.com/hub/auto-racing and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dan Gelston, The Associated Press

Montrealers are heading to public parks in massive numbers as the pandemic restrictions prohibit home gatherings. But once they are out getting some fresh air with friends and family, there are limited places to go to the bathroom. By Saturday evening, Jarry Park was brimming with more than a thousand people, but there was one only one building open with bathrooms as well as six chemical toilets. While some people were willing to stand in line and wait for at least 30 minutes, others went off to find an inconspicuous spot to relieve themselves. "With friends, we went to pee in nature," Sarah Denchetri told Radio-Canada while she was in Jarry Park on Saturday. Things weren't much better at parks like Jeanne-Mance or Laurier, where demand for public bathrooms also outstripped supply. Montreal spokesperson Philippe Sabourin said 140 portable chemical toilets have been added to parks around the city. He estimated parks are getting between seven and10 times the usual amount of visitors. "We are still in the red zone. There are not many activities to do. We know that Montrealers like to go to their parks," Sabourin said. Montreal spokesperson Philippe Sabourin said 140 portable chemical toilets have been added to parks around the city.(Radio-Canada) "Certainly there will be adjustments to be made in the coming weeks," he added, but things may change if the provincial government scales back restrictions. "We will see how it will unfold in terms of the reopening of non-essential businesses, especially restaurants," he said. In Quebec's red zones, outdoor gatherings of a maximum of eight people are allowed on condition that a mask is worn when the distance of two metres cannot be respected. Gatherings on private property, be it inside or outside, remain prohibited. Police fined 75 people, for a total of $135,000, after breaking-up an illegal house party this weekend in Sainte-Beatrix, about 100 kilometres north of Montreal.
