ST. LOUIS—Rams’ players saw the signs, heard the chanting, noticed the volume was turned up.
The effort was inspired on what could have been the final home game for the franchise in St. Louis.
“It was a great atmosphere,” quarterback Case Keenum said after the Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23 last night.
TORONTO—Things are going so poorly for Jonathan Bernier that even the shots that should sail wide are beating him.
This time it was a puck off the shin of teammate Peter Holland that went past Bernier as the Toronto Maple Leafs lost to the San Jose Sharks 5-4 in overtime last night at Air Canada Centre.
CLEVELAND—The wife of U.S. PGA champion Jason Day was treated and released from a hospital after LeBron James crashed into her during an NBA game last night.

She was released early today, according to hospital spokeswoman Tina Shaerban Arundel.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Jeremy Lin finally got a chance to show the Charlotte Hornets what “Linsanity” is all about.

OAKLAND, Calif.—Luke Walton nearly had finished drawing up a play when Stephen Curry chimed in: run one for Klay.
Walton obliged—and so did Klay Thompson.
“I stepped in. I need to be a little quicker,” Curry noted. “I raised my hand.
“We got a bucket on it, too. It worked.”
There were so many buckets, in fact, Thompson couldn’t remember that exact one.
WASHINGTON—Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals patiently turned away the Ottawa Senators last night.
Holtby made 26 saves in Washington’s 2-1 victory—lowering his NHL-best GAA to 1.83 and improving to 20-4-1.
“He’s an eraser,” said Capitals’ coach Barry Trotz. “Good goaltending erases a lot of mistakes.
MIAMI—With the score tied in the fourth quarter, Odell Beckham Jr. somehow slipped five yards behind the secondary.
That turned out to be the winning margin for the N.Y. Giants.
Beckham’s 84-yard touchdown reception put the Giants ahead to stay with 11 minutes to go as they forged a three-way tie atop the NFC East by beating the Miami Dolphins 31-24 last night.
INDIANAPOLIS—Jordan Hill and Monta Ellis helped Indiana pull off a big come-from-behind win with hopes of getting the Pacers back to their winning ways.
Hill had season highs of 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Ellis added 18 points, as the Pacers beat the Raptors 106-90 last night to snap Toronto’s four-game winning streak.
“We have our ups-and-downs sometimes,” Hill noted.
BOSTON—The Edmonton Oilers weren’t trying to hide it.
They knew they were lucky to get out of town with a victory.

It was Edmonton’s sixth-straight win.
