Mike Woodson had the Knicks on top of their division and in the second round of the playoffs, destinations that had become unreachable and practically unimaginable in New York. Phil Jackson fired Woodson and the entire coaching staff on Monday, making his first big move since becoming team president in March and saying in a statement that ''the time has come for change throughout the franchise.'' The dismissal comes shortly after the Knicks completed a 37-45 season that began with their belief they were a serious contender. It was a stunningly swift fall for Woodson, whose .580 winning percentage with the Knicks ranks behind only Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy, and who finished third in the NBA's Coach of the Year voting after going 54-28 last season. He and the staff were informed of the decision Monday morning by Jackson, the man the Knicks originally wanted to replace Woodson as coach but preferred to run the team's front office.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild have switched goalies for Game 3 of their playoff series against the Colorado Avalanche, giving Darcy Kuemper the start instead of Ilya Bryzgalov. Coach Mike Yeo confirmed the change after the pre-game morning skate on Monday. The Avalanche won the first two games of the series, and Bryzgalov gave up eight goals on 45 shots. Kyle Brodziak was taken out of the lineup.
The Baltimore Orioles scored six runs off Clay Buchholz in the third inning then held on to spoil Boston's Patriots' Day morning game a year after the Boston Marathon bombings with a 7-6 win over the Red Sox on Monday. The Red Sox had a chance to win in the ninth when they loaded the bases with one out on a single by Brock Holt, a double by Dustin Pedroia and an intentional walk to David Ortiz. One run scored on Mike Napoli's groundout to second, but Mike Carp grounded out to first as Tommy Hunter escaped with his fifth save.
