BOSTON — Mika Zibanejad scored two of New York’s four third-period goals, and the Rangers ended their season with a 5-4 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday to halt a five-game losing streak. Alexis Lafrenière and Vitali Kravtsov also scored in a wild third when the Rangers turned a 2-1 deficit to a 4-2 edge. K’Andre Miller added a goal for the Rangers, and Keith Kinkaid made 28 saves before leaving with an injury midway into the third. Igor Shesterkin finished up in net with seven saves. New York, which was eliminated from the playoffs, will finish in fifth in the NHL’s East division. It ended a strange week for the Rangers, who fired their president and general manager and were fined by the NHL. “The last 10 days or so have been kind of crazy," said Zibanejad, who finished up with 24 goals and 26 assists. “We got the win and got to finish up the season in somewhat of a nice way.” David Pastrnak scored his 200th career goal, Brad Marchand had his team-leading 28th, and Patrice Bergeron and Nick Ritchie also scored for the Bruins, who had earned at least a point in their previous six games (5-0-1). Tuukka Rask stopped 18 shots. “They definitely came up hard and I felt like we weren't ready,” Pastrnak said. “We've got to learn and move on.” Boston can clinch third in the East if the New York Islanders lose Saturday night or by earning two points in its final two games. The Bruins host the Islanders on Monday night. Zibanejad tied it 2-2 with a wrister from the slot 5:01 after Pastrnak scored on a one-timer from the right circle 21 seconds into the third. “It’s just perplexing how it all happened at once,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said of the Bruins falling apart. Lafrenière cut in alone and slipped a backhander over Rask at 7:26. Kravtsov then one-timed in a shot in at 9:36. Marchand’s power-play goal sliced it to 4-3 with 5:52 left in the third, but Zibanejad’s second of the game and 200th of his career made it 5-3. Bergeron scored with Rask pulled for an extra skater, but the Rangers held on. “You're talking about an elite hockey player,” Rangers coach David Quinn said of Zibanejad. “To finish with 50 points after the start he had shows the type of player he is.” Ritchie, voted the club’s Seventh Player Award by the fans for someone who “exceeded expectations,” tied it after Miller had moved New York ahead 6:21 into the second. “I think we can learn from that,” Ritchie said. “You never give up in a hockey game or get complacent.” Kinkaid was solid through two periods, stopping 27 shots — 18 in the second — and even had a little luck when Pastrnak fired a shot off the crossbar. A WEEK TO FORGET The Rangers closed their final week of the season with the firing of the team’s president and general manager, a night filled with fights against Washington in response to the Capitals’ Tom Wilson not being suspended and a $250,000 fine from the NHL for the club’s public criticism of the league’s head of player safety George Parros about Wilson’s punishment of only a fine for his actions during a melee on Monday. Associate general manager Chris Drury became the new president and GM after owner James Dolan fired president John Davidson and GM Jeff Gorton on Wednesday. “It's been difficult, but it was great to finish the way we did,” Quinn said. “It's exciting for us to get Chris's first win as a general manager.” DECISION TO MAKE The Bruins will have to decide who backs up No. 1 goalie Rask in the playoffs. Rookie Jeremy Swayman has been outstanding, going 7-2 with a 1.44 goals-against-average in nine starts, and veteran Jarsolav Halak has playoff experience. “It’s Tuukka first, we know that,” Cassidy said before the game. “Certainly, Swayman has done everything we’ve asked. A good problem to have when you have three capable goaltenders.” NOTES: Pastrnak’s goal was his 20th, the fifth straight season he’s reached that mark. … Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich returned to the lineup after serving a one-game suspension for high-sticking Washington’s Anthony Mantha on Wednesday. … Cassidy said forward Ondrej Kase, out since Jan. 16 with an upper-body injury, had a good practice Friday with “a little more exertion” and that it “bodes well” for him possibly playing in one of the final two games. UP NEXT Rangers: Training camp next season. Bruins: Host the Islanders on Monday in their penultimate regular-season game. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL Ken Powtak, The Associated Press

MONTREAL — Restaurants and bars staged a symbolic reopening Saturday, seeking to remind patrons and politicians alike of the dining experience after 14 months dominated by COVID-19 shutdowns.The faux reopening — no food was served on site — came after Quebec bar owners called on the government last month to allow them to unlock their doors for patrons who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine."The goal is to make the government aware that eventually we will die if we continue to close," Pierre Lévêque, owner of Chez Lévêque in Outremont, said of the staged reopening.Founded in 1972, the Parisian-style brasserie employed up to 50 people before first shutting its doors on March 17, 2020.Sous vide dishes like coq au vin and boeuf bourguignon adorn the blackboard menu above a row of tables draped in white cloths. In the window, bottles of chardonnay and shiraz bracket a vase overflowing with corks and capped with plastic pears and peppers."People can come in and visit us like an old piece of art, because people have tended to almost forget what it's like to go into a restaurant," said manager Yann Nkanko."At this rate, we could almost tell people, 'Hey, look, this used to be a table. People used to come in and sit down.'"Two associations representing bar owners wrote to Premier Francois Legault in a letter dated April 29 to say modifying the public health order that has closed bars since October would bring some much-needed reprieve for the hard-hit sector.Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante on Thursday asked the provincial government to open restaurant and bar terraces on June 1. But Health Minister Christian Dubé told reporters that officials must "be prudent about making commitments."Legault has said Quebec will unveil a "reopening roadmap" within weeks.Quebec's overall health situation remains relatively stable, with the number of new COVID-19 cases remaining below 1,000 and hospitalizations on the decline, despite an impending lockdown in one region.The province said the Estrie region will see its alert level rise from orange to red — the maximum — on Monday, resulting in tighter restrictions after its case numbers jumped by 83 per cent over the past week.The new classification means restaurants and gyms must close and places of worship will cap capacity at 25 people.Health authorities say schools will remain open, but students in their third, fourth and final year of high school will attend class every other day, starting May 12.Outdoor sports are limited to groups of eight or those who live at the same address. Indoor sports can be done solo, in pairs or among residents of the same home at swimming pools, stating rinks and tennis and badminton courts. Training gyms will be closed.New cases in Estrie climbed to 86 from 47 over the past six days.Health officials reported 958 new COVID-19 infections and seven deaths across Quebec on Saturday, marking the sixth consecutive day new cases have fallen short of 1,000. Hospitalizations fell by 27 to 547, while the number of patients in intensive care declined by nine to 130.Active cases dropped to 8,655 from 8,737, officials said.Montreal reported the most new cases with 204; followed by Montérégie, south of Montreal, with 131; and Chaudière-Appalaches with 123 cases.Officials lowered the vaccine eligibility age on Thursday to residents 35 and up. The government has said all adults will be able to book an appointment by mid-May.The province says it administered just over 91,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine for a total of more than 4.1 million doses injected across the province so far.Slightly more than 40 per cent of Quebec's population has received at least one dose of vaccine.This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 8, 2021.

NEW YORK, May 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Ebang International Holdings Inc. (“Ebang” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EBON) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, and docketed under 21-cv-09859, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Ebang securities between June 26, 2020 and April 5, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Plaintiff pursues claims against the Defendants under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). If you are a shareholder who purchased Ebang securities during the Class Period, you have until June 7, 2021 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 7980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and the number of shares purchased. [Click here for information about joining the class action] Ebang purports to be a leading application-specific integrated circuit (“ASIC”) chip design company and a leading manufacturer of Bitcoin mining machines. The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) that the proceeds from Ebang’s public offerings had been directed to an low yield, long term bonds to an underwriter and to related parties rather than used to develop the Company’s operations; (2) that Ebang’s sales were declining and the Company had inflated reported sales, including through the sale of defective units; (3) that Ebang’s attempts to go public in Hong Kong had failed due to allegations of embezzling investor funds and inflated sales figures; (4) that Ebang’s purported cryptocurrency exchange was merely the purchase of an out-of-the-box crypto exchange; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. On April 6, 2021, before the market opened, Hindenburg Research published a report alleging, among other things, that Ebang is directing proceeds from its IPO last year into a “series of opaque deals with insiders and questionable counterparties.” According to the report, Ebang raised $21 million in November 2020, claiming the proceeds would go “primarily for development,” and that instead the funds were directed to repay related-party loans to a relative of the Ebang’s Chief Executive Officer, Dong Hu. The report also noted that Ebang’s earlier efforts to go public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange had failed due to widespread media coverage of a sales inflation scheme with Yindou, a Chinese peer-to-peer online lending platform that defrauded 20,000 retail investors in 2018, with $655 million “vanish[ing] into thin air.” On this news, the Company’s share price fell $0.82, or approximately 13%, to close at $5.53 per share on April 6, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume. On April 6, 2021, after the market closed, Ebang issued a statement stating that, though it believed the report “contain[ed] many errors, unsupported speculations and inaccurate interpretations of events,” the “Board, together with its Audit Committee, intends to further review and examine the allegations and misinformation therein and will take whatever necessary and appropriate actions may be required to protect the interest of its shareholders.” On this news, the Company’s share price fell $0.12, or 2.17%, to close at $5.41 per share on April 7, 2021. The stock price continued to decline over the next trading session by $0.38, or 7%, to close at $5.03 per share on April 8, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.

Hundreds of Manchester City fans gathered outside the Etihand Stadium for a Premier League title celebration that proved premature as Chelsea ruined the script with a last-minute 2-1 victory on Saturday. City manager Pep Guardiola left out a host of first-team regulars for a game regarded as a dress rehearsal for the Champions League final and paid the price as he was made to wait a little longer to seal his third title in four seasons. Raheem Sterling gave City the lead in the 44th minute and Sergio Aguero had the chance to double their lead before halftime but his attempted Panenka penalty misfired and Edouard Mendy made a simple catch.

NEW YORK, May 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Kadmon Holdings, Inc. (“Kadmon” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: KDMN) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and docketed under 21-cv-01797, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Kadmon securities between October 1, 2020 and March 10, 2021, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its top officials. If you are a shareholder who purchased Kadmon securities during the Class Period, you have until June 2, 2021 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 7980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and the number of shares purchased. [Click here for information about joining the class action] Kadmon is a biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, and commercializes small molecules and biologics primarily for the treatment of inflammatory and fibrotic diseases. The Company’s lead product candidates include, among others, belumosudil (KD025), an orally administered selective inhibitor of the rho-associated coiled-coil kinase 2 (“ROCK2”), which is in Phase II clinical development for the treatment of chronic graft-versus-host disease (“cGVHD”). On September 30, 2020, post-market, Kadmon announced the submission of a New Drug Application (“NDA”) for belumosudil for the treatment of cGVHD (the “Belumosudil NDA”) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). Then, on November 30, 2020, Kadmon announced the FDA’s acceptance of the Belumosudil NDA, and that the FDA had assigned the NDA a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (“PDUFA”) target action date of May 30, 2021. The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Belumosudil NDA was incomplete and/or deficient; (ii) the additional new data that the Company submitted in support of the Belumosudil NDA in response to an information request from the FDA materially altered the NDA submission; (iii) accordingly, the initial Belumosudil NDA submission lacked the degree of support that the Company had led investors to believe; (iv) accordingly, the FDA was likely to extend the PDUFA target action date to review the Belumosudil NDA; and (v) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 10, 2021, Kadmon issued a press release “announc[ing] that the [FDA] has extended the review period” for the Belumosudil NDA and that, “[i]n a notice received from the FDA on March 9, 2021, the Company was informed that the [PDUFA] goal date for its Priority Review of belumosudil has been extended to August 30, 2021.” Kadmon advised investors that “[t]he FDA extended the PDUFA date to allow time to review additional information submitted by Kadmon in response to a recent FDA information request,” and that “[t]he submission of the additional information has been determined by the FDA to constitute a major amendment to the NDA, resulting in an extension of the PDUFA date by three months.” On this news, Kadmon’s stock price fell $0.52 per share, or 10.57%, to close at $4.40 per share on March 11, 2021.
