first_img headlamp headlamp The fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down; the night can provide just as much of a playground as any afternoon sun. Follow this week’s healthy tip and let your pupils adjust, play under the starlight, and grab a headlamp.Are you afraid of the dark, the mysterious noises and lack of sight? What is it about the darkness that evokes an embedded worry to our hearts? The blindness, the loss of a sense that drums on your ears, that paralyzing uncertainty of the unknown, it all adds up to a lot for just an absence of light.But alas, sometimes to discover new things you have to walk in the dark. So grab a flashlight, find a full-moon to guide your way, and light up those darkened corridors.. Explore what lies out of sight long enough and your eyes will adjust as you start to understand that the only thing hiding in the darkness is the light.Go, shine a flashlight, and explore the unknown.-BDLcenter_img headlamplast_img read more

Rookie Megna lifts Penguins past Canes, 3-1

(AP) — When he eventually tells the story of his first career goal, Pittsburgh rookie Jayson Megna won’t embellish any of the details. Sidney Crosby did set it up, and it did ice a victory that ended a losing streak.That it clicked in off his shin pad? No big deal.Megna scored his first goal on a deflection after he also earned his first assist, helping the Penguins snap a three-game slide by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Monday night.“I told him, ‘That’s not the way you usually dream of scoring your first one,’” Crosby said. “But you take them any way you can get them.”Chris Kunitz and Tanner Glass also scored for the Metropolitan Division-leading Penguins. Brooks Orpik had three assists, Crosby added two and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 20 shots.Pittsburgh ended its longest losing streak since 2011-12 by defeating the Hurricanes for the fourth straight time.“We had some lapses for periods (during the slide) and that hurt us and ended up costing us the game,” Crosby said. “When you do good things, you don’t want to spoil it with some errors that were mental errors, and we bounced back here tonight and got a big win.”Nathan Gerbe scored a power-play goal for Carolina, which lost its third straight. The Hurricanes remained tied with the New York Islanders for second in the division — five points behind the Penguins — after putting just three shots on Fleury in the third period.“We kind of got pushed out of the game. We weren’t able to generate anything in the third period,” coach Kirk Muller said. “Prior to that, they played a heavier game than we did. They won more battles. They grinded it harder, and their big boys at the end of the night were on the scoresheet. … Some of our guys have to start contributing.”Carolina’s Justin Peters made 26 saves in his second straight start in place of the injured Cam Ward.Ward is expected to miss at least two more weeks after sustaining an unspecified lower-body injury during a loss at Minnesota last week, and including that game, the Hurricanes have lost all three games since he was hurt. Carolina has allowed at least three goals in four straight.“He battled. He played hard,” Muller said of Peters. “We broke down on a couple mistakes that cost us goals, and we had opportunities to capitalize almost similar plays and we didn’t capitalize.”Offense had become a bit tougher to find for the Penguins, which scored 13 goals in its previous two victories over the Hurricanes — including a 5-2 win earlier this month in Pittsburgh keyed by a hat trick from former Hurricane Jussi Jokinen.During the losing streak, the Penguins averaged 38 shots but managed four total goals.Kunitz scored the go-ahead goal with 3:36 left in the second, cashing in on some nifty cross-ice passing, taking a feed from Crosby and beating Peters high to make it 2-1.Megna — a 23-year-old undrafted center playing in his second career NHL game — then made it a two-goal game with 12:49 left.A Crosby shot clicked first off a Carolina defender, then off Megna’s right leg and into the net — and the occasion was marked by the inadvertent sounding of the PNC Arena goal horn.“Shot it right off my shin pad,” Megna said. “Not how I dreamed it up, but I’ll take them any way I can get them.”Megna’s first career point came on the Penguins’ first goal. Glass put them up 1-0 at 8:25 of the first off a neutral-zone draw, whipping the rebound of Megna’s shot past Peters. Both of Glass’ goals this season have come against the Hurricanes.Gerbe tied it at 16:03 with a 5-on-3 goal, finishing from point-blank range after some tic-tac-toe passing from Alexander Semin and rookie Elias Lindholm.That came after Pittsburgh had the game’s first nine shots on goal. Carolina didn’t put its first shot on Fleury until Ron Hainsey’s soft backhand with about 8½ minutes left drew some sarcastic cheers from the crowd.The Penguins had a lull of their own in the second, failing to put a shot on Peters until Megna landed one about 8½ minutes in.NOTES: Crosby has at least one point in 10 of Pittsburgh’s 12 games. … Semin has points in four straight games. … The Penguins scratched D Rob Scuderi with a lower-body injury, ending his streak of 276 consecutive regular-season games played — the longest streak on the team.___Follow Joedy McCreary on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joedyaplast_img read more
