Jake Gardiner proves the risk is worth the reward – Sportsnet.ca


Leo Komarov has just finished making fun of the size of Jake Gardiner’s head, and now Gardiner is sitting in his stall after an off-day practice, and he’s thinking. The Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman has been trying to explain what goes through that head of his — which, truth be told, is quite big — when he gets creative on the ice, when he decides to make a move just inside the opposing team’s blue line to evade one player, then bounces the puck off the boards to himself to get past another, instead of going a safer route, like, say, getting the puck in deep.

Taylor Swift May launch her own online music service


Taylor Swift has filed trademarks to launch a service that may offer music downloads and content, EW has learned.

Should the 27-year-old pop star ultimately launch a digital music hub, it could resemble services maintained by the likes of Pearl Jam, Phish, and Bruce Springsteen, which those artists use to distribute their own concert recordings and rarities.

Swift has had a complicated relationship with the music streaming services. When she released her most recent album, 1989, in late 2014, Swift declined to offer it on platforms like Spotify — and went a step further when she subsequently pulled the rest of her catalog from streaming services.

Washington State News | Seattle mayor touts construction milestone


Seattle Mayor Ed Murray says completing a tunnel that will serve as an underground highway was “a major construction milestone in our plan to reclaim Seattle’s waterfront.”

Murray said Tuesday that the city is one step closer to taking down a double-layer waterfront highway to make room for “our vision of a well-connected 21st century city” serving “pedestrians, transit and sensible car trips.”

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says the breakthrough is “a historic moment in our state’s transportation history.”

Critics call it an expensive vanity project, and environmentalists have objected to building another highway in Seattle.
