ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jordan Binnington made 27 saves and the St. Louis Blues scored on all three of their power plays Wednesday night in a 3-2 victory over the skidding Anaheim Ducks. Oskar Sundqvist, Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford each had a goal for St. Louis, which is 6 for 10 with the man advantage against Anaheim this season. Overall, the Blues have converted on just 17.1% of their power plays — which ranks 24th in the NHL. St. Louis has won all four meetings against the Ducks this year and six of their last seven dating to last season. Max Comtois and Rickard Rakell scored for Anaheim, which is 0-6-2 in its last eight games. John Gibson stopped 18 shots. Torey Krug assisted on the first two goals, and Sundqvist also had an assist. Binnington returned to the Blues’ net after giving up four goals in 31 minutes last Saturday at San Jose. When he was pulled, he lost his composure and went after three San Jose players before leaving the ice. Sundqvist took a pass from David Perron in front, spun around and put in a wrist shot with 5:15 remaining in the first period for his fourth goal of the season. Schenn extended St. Louis' lead to 2-0 midway through the second period with a shot from the top of the left faceoff circle that beat Gibson while he was being screened. Schenn leads the Blues with 11 goals, including three against the Ducks. Comtois got Anaheim on the board with less than six minutes remaining in the second. Binnington got a glove on Troy Terry's shot, but the puck remained loose in the crease, allowing Comtois to crash the net and pounce on the rebound. Comtois has six of his team-leading nine goals in the last 12 games. Sanford put St. Louis back on top by two with 6:52 left after a scramble in front for his seventh of the season. Rakell brought the Ducks to 3-2 with nine seconds to go. The left wing has five points, including two goals, in his last three games. UP NEXT Both teams hit the road for games on Friday. The Blues remain in Southern California to face the Los Angeles Kings, while the Ducks visit the Colorado Avalanche. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Buddy Hield shook off a sore ankle to score 29 points and the Sacramento Kings beat the short-handed Los Angeles Lakers 123-120 on Wednesday night. Hield’s status for the game was in doubt because of a sprained right ankle but he decided to play through it and helped the Kings win for just the second time in the past 12 games. They took advantage of a banged-up Lakers team missing LeBron James and Anthony Davis to bounce back from Sunday’s late-game collapse against Charlotte when they missed five foul shots in the final 69 seconds to blow an eight-point lead. Sacramento held on at the end to win this one with Harrison Barnes’ layup giving the Kings a 121-120 lead with 30.1 seconds remaining after De’Aaron Fox had just fouled out. Dennis Schröder and Montrezl Harrell then both missed short shots at the other end and Sacramento got the ball back with 3.0 seconds to play. Barnes made two free throws and Kyle Kuzma's desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer was off target to seal the win for the Kings. Fox finished with 23 points and Barnes had 20 for Sacramento. Schröder scored 28 to lead Los Angeles, Harrell added 26 and Kuzma scored 25. But it wasn’t enough for the Lakers, who lost for the sixth time in eight games to fall into a tie for third place in the Western Conference. INJURY REPORT James missed his first game of the season for the Lakers with a sore left ankle. James is still expected to play in the All-Star Game Sunday but the Lakers decided to give him a day off. “He’s pretty banged up right now, so we took this opportunity to keep him home for this game,” coach Frank Vogel said. The Lakers were also missing Davis (right calf strain), Marc Gasol (health and safety protocols) and Alex Caruso (neck spasms). The Kings were also short-handed with rookie Tyrese Haliburton missing his second straight game with an injured left calf. Haliburton is expected to miss one more game before returning after the break. TIP-INS Lakers: Los Angeles made 12 of its first 18 shots. ... Harrell was called for a technical foul after yelling “And 1!” after scoring a basket early in the second quarter. Kings: Hield scored eight straight points in a span of 50 seconds in the second quarter to help the Kings erase a 14-point first-quarter deficit to take a 45-43 lead. UP NEXT Lakers: Host Indiana on March 12. Kings: Visit Portland on Thursday night. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Josh Dubow, The Associated Press

President Joe Biden and Democrats agreed to tighten eligibility limits for stimulus checks, bowing to party moderates as leaders prepared to move their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill through the Senate. At the same time, the White House and top Democrats stood by progressives and agreed that the Senate package would retain the $400 weekly emergency unemployment benefits included in the House-passed pandemic legislation. Moderates have wanted to trim those payments to $300 after Republicans have called the bill so heedlessly generous that it would prompt some people to not return to work.
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic sat out a victory over Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, sidelined by lower back tightness that coach Rick Carlisle said shouldn't cost him his second All-Star appearance this weekend. Doncic showed up on the injury report Tuesday, a day after scoring 33 points in a 130-124 victory at Orlando. It was the sixth game of the season of at least 30 points for Doncic, who turned 22 on Sunday. The second missed game of the season for Doncic was Dallas' last before the All-Star Game on Sunday in Atlanta. Carlisle said he expects Doncic to participate. Doncic was voted an All-Star starter and also is in the skills competition, which will be before the game in a schedule streamlined by the pandemic. Carlisle said Doncic has been battling a back issue recently and has worn a heat massage belt in two recent practices. Doncic sat at the recommendation of athletic trainer Casey Smith. “It's something he needs to take a game,” Carlisle said. “He wants to play, but Casey felt this is something we need to do.” European sidekick Kristaps Porzingis had 19 points and 13 rebounds in Dallas; 87-78 victory over Oklahoma City. The absence of Doncic came less than a week since Porzingis returned after missing three games because of back stiffness. Doncic missed a 118-108 loss at Chicago on Jan. 3 after injuring his left quadriceps in the previous game against Miami. Doncic is sixth in the NBA in scoring at 28.6 points per game and fifth in assists at 9.0 per game. He and Brooklyn's James Harden are tied for third in triple-doubles with seven. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California will begin setting aside 40% of all vaccine doses for the state’s most vulnerable neighbourhoods in an effort to inoculate people most at risk from the coronavirus and get the state’s economy open more quickly. Two officials in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration shared details Wednesday on condition of anonymity. The doses will be spread out among 400 ZIP codes with about 8 million people eligible for shots. Many of the neighbourhoods are concentrated in Los Angeles County and the Central Valley. The areas are considered most vulnerable based on metrics such as household income, education level, housing status and access to transportation. Once 2 million vaccine doses are given out in those neighbourhoods, the state will make it easier for counties to move through reopening tiers that dictate business and school reopenings. Right now, a county can move from the most restrictive purple tier to the lower red tier based on several metrics, including having 7 or fewer new COVID cases per 100,000 people per day over a period of several weeks. That metric will change to 10 new cases or fewer. In the red tier, businesses such as restaurants and gyms can open for indoor services at limited capacity. Also in the red tier, schools that want to access new state funding must provide in-person learning for students in transitional kindergarten through grade 6 and at least one grade each in middle and high school. About 1.6 million vaccine doses already have been given to people in those 400 ZIP codes, and the state will hit the 2 million mark in the next week or two, officials said. Once the state gives out 4 million doses in those neighbourhoods, it will revise the metrics for getting into the even less restrictive orange and yellow tiers. Newsom has called equity the state's “North Star." Yet community health clinics focused on serving low-income and vulnerable Californians say they haven't been getting enough doses. The changes mark a fresh round of twists in California’s vaccination and reopening plans. Now half of California’s vaccine doses will be reserved for specific groups, as educators get a guaranteed 10%. People age 65 and over, farmworkers and emergency service workers are also eligible for shots. More counties have already been moving into the red tier as caseloads, hospitalizations and deaths drop. The state’s average 2.2% test positivity rate over 7 days is a record low. Officials are making it easier to move through reopening tiers, arguing the likelihood of widespread transmission that can overwhelm hospitals will decrease as more people are vaccinated. That’s particularly true as the most vulnerable populations that are more likely to get seriously ill receive the shots. While race and ethnicity are not explicit factors in designating vaccinations, the 400 vulnerable ZIP codes overlap heavily with neighbourhoods with higher populations of Blacks, Latinos and Asian and Pacific Islanders, officials said. Los Angeles County could move into the next phase of reopening with fewer restrictions as early as next week, though any actual lifting of coronavirus-related constraints would not happen immediately, county officials said earlier Wednesday. Most San Francisco Bay Area counties have advanced to the next phase, which allows restaurants and movie theatres to open indoors at 25% capacity and gyms to operate at 10% capacity.

Capitol Police say they have uncovered intelligence of a “possible plot” by a militia group to breach the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, nearly two months after a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the iconic building to try to stop Congress from certifying now-President Joe Biden's victory. The threat appears to be connected to a far-right conspiracy theory, mainly promoted by supporters of QAnon, that Trump will rise again to power on March 4. Online chatter identified by authorities included discussions among members of the Three Percenters, an anti-government militia group, concerning possible plots against the Capitol on Thursday, according to two law enforcement officials who were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The U.S. House of Representatives canceled its session planned for Thursday, after Washington D.C. Police warned that a militia group could be plotting to attack the Capitol.The latest warning comes amid heightened security at the Capitol building, spurred by January's deadly attack there by supporters of former President Donald Trump.The House had scheduled for Thursday to debate and vote on a police reform bill, but a Democratic aide said plans changed after intelligence that "an identified militia group" could present a security threat.Some right-wing conspiracy theorists have falsely claimed that Trump, who lost the election to President Joe Biden, should be sworn in for a second term on Thursday on a day some have described as quote "true Inauguration Day."Before 1937, some U.S. Presidents had been inaugurated on March 4, but ever since, the official day has remained Jan. 20.Earlier this week, a House official notified lawmakers of a possible security threat spanning Thursday through Saturday.The Justice Department has so far charged over 300 people who took part in January's siege of the Capitol, including members of right-wing extremist groups the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys.In a statement, it said the United States Capitol Police Department is quote "aware of and prepared for any potential threats," and working with local, state and federal agencies to prevent them.Meanwhile, the Senate will convene as planned on Thursday to debate Biden's $1.9 trillion economic relief bill.

POCHEON, South Korea (AP) — “It’s a world of lawlessness,” Rev. Kim Dal-sung muttered over the phone as he drove his tiny KIA over narrow dirt paths zigzagging through greenhouses made of plastic sheets and tubes. In the bleak landscape of dull blue and gray in Pocheon, a town near South Korea’s ultra-modern capital, hundreds of migrant workers from across Asia toil in harsh conditions, unprotected by labor laws while doing the hardest, lowest-paid farm work most Koreans avoid. The death of a 31-year-old Cambodian woman worker at one of the farms in December has revived decades-long criticism over South Korean exploitation of some of the poorest, most vulnerable people in Asia.
