Denmark and Australia Tie, Spain Gets First Win, NHL Awards See MVP go to Taylor Hall and Coach of the Year to Golden Knights' Gallant, NY State Fails to Pass Sports Betting Laws
Denmark remains unbeaten in their last 17 games, while Australia have ended a four-game streak of losses in the World Cup as both teams tied 1-1 today, according to FIFA.com. Elsewhere Spain got the better over IR Iran with a 1-0 victory. The close match earned Spain their first win of the 2018 World Cup after tying with Portugal last Friday.
The NHL Awards in Las Vegas last night saw Taylor Hall of the New Jersey Devils taking home the Hart Trophy over Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche. Hall amassed 1264 voting points over MacKinnon's 1194. ESPN quotes Hall on the rivalry:
"I saw Nathan briefly before the awards tonight. We were joking that we're now rivals," Hall said. "The voting was so close that you could make an argument for all three candidates. You could have had all three of us up there and it would have been totally valid. It's an honor to win out of those three guys and to represent the Devils as their first MVP."
The Las Vegas Golden Knights' coach Gerard Gallant won the Jack Adams Award for coach of the year, after leading his team to the Stanley Cup playoffs in their first year in the league. NHL.com has a complete breakdown of the 2017-18 award winners.
New York state legislators adjourned their session yesterday without passing anticipated sports betting bills, according to Legal Sports Report. Both bills on the table contained "integrity fees", essentially royalties from sports betting revenue, which major sports leagues such as the NBA and MLB sought. Betting is still possible under existing law, however, according to executive director of the New York State Gaming Commission, Ron Ochrym.
"Commission staff have long been working on regulations that would effectuate sports gambling under the existing statutory language," Ochrym said. "Staff anticipates being able to provide a draft for your review in the near term."
