NJN/am for Thursday, June 5


Sports: Bonus hockey. Sudden-death overtime games have occurred frequently in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the first game of the Cup finals continued the trend. Justin Williams' snap shot almost five minutes into the extra period won the game for the Los Angeles Kings by a 3-2 score. The Kings came back after the New York Rangers scored twice in the first 15 minutes. Game 2 is Saturday (6 p.m., NBC)... Baseball: So long, Zim. Don Zimmer, who was a part of organized pro baseball for parts of eight different decades as a player, coach and manager, died Wednesday in Tampa, where had served as a senior adviser to the Rays for the last 10 years. One of the true characters of the game, Zimmer started out in the minor leagues in 1949, and played 12 seasons in the majors. He managed four different teams and was an assistant for several more. An injury he suffered when he was beaned by a pitch in the minors led to the adoption of batting helmets. “Zim” bumped his uniform number up annually to match his tenure in baseball, finishing with 66. Zimmer died of heart and kidney problems; he was 83.
