Thursday was another slow day for live sports, with the NBA off for the second time this week and just one-third of Major League Baseball taking the field.

Thankfully, three thrilling NHL playoff games were more than enough to keep fans on their toes, as the Rangers avoided a sweep with an overtime win at home and the Wings beat Chicago, while the Kings topped San Jose to move to within a game of a conference finals matchup out west.

On the basketball court, LeBron and Kobe both made made the All-NBA First Team (surprise!), along with Kevin Durant, Tim Duncan and Chris Paul, and the Zen Master said he’d start a team with Bill Russell over MJ.

As for the rest of the news, here are a few other items you may have missed:

— Did EA Sports violate NCAA rules when it used Tim Tebow's name in a video game while Tebow was still at Florida?

— Three Oklahoma universities teamed up in the name of tornado relief.

— Kate Upton turned down a teenager's prom invite, but no worries. Nina Agdal filled in.

— A Pittsburgh Pirates player showed up to work yesterday dressed in full Penguins gear:

— Celtics coach Doc Rivers was denied permission to speak with the Nets about their coaching vacancy.

— Fan on field at Royals game jukes cop right off his feet, swipes rosin bag from mound.

— What would five-base baseball, look like?

— Snoop Dogg's son is a top-100 football prospect.

— A Philadelphia cyclist has become a hit (and earned himself a GoPro commercial) for riding around the city with his cat on his shoulders:

— The 404 error at MLB.com is fantastic. (And make sure you refresh the page a few times, because there are eight different ones.)

— These bodybuilding grandpas are more ripped than most of us will ever be.

— The University of New Hampshire paid more than $100k for new logos that its students don't like.

— He's already bad enough in post-game press conferences. Someone should probably stop putting live microphones near John Tortorella during games. (WARNING: NSFW language):

— An Oregon high school girl has minded the net for her school's boys lacrosse team for the last two seasons.
