OTTAWA - Colin Greening scored 7:39 into double overtime, and the Ottawa Senators rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins that cut their series deficit to 2-1 on Sunday night.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand watches his tee shot during the first round of the British Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake(Reuters) - Big-hitting Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat eagled the penultimate hole to force a playoff and then prevailed over Chinese teen Li Hao-tong at the Shenzhen International to claim his second European Tour title on Sunday. The 19-year-old Chinese golfer signed off with a five-under-par 67 in his regular round to aggregate 12-under, hoping to be the first from his country to win an European Tour event on home soil. Overnight leader Kiradech, however, had other ideas as the Thai, having dropped four bogeys by then, eagled the 17th to draw level before squandering a putt to win the tournament on the final hole. "Special thanks to my caddie, he was always pushing me," the 25-year-old Kiradech, whose only other European Tour victory came at the 2013 Malaysian Open, said.

The sun rises before the 20th Remembrance Ceremony, the anniversary ceremony for victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum in Oklahoma CityBy Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - When Priscilla Salyers attends Sunday's anniversary ceremony for victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, she will be thinking how far she has come in fighting depression and survivor's guilt. She and hundreds of other survivors will bow their heads at the 20th Remembrance Ceremony at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, marking the day a cargo truck with more than two tons of explosives blew up, killing 168 people. Salyers plummeted five floors when the fuel-and-fertilizer bomb detonated at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the bombing, and accomplice Terry Nichols were tried and convicted on federal charges.


Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect in the Boston Marathon explosion, is pictured in this undated FBI handout photoBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is set to return to court on Tuesday for the next phase of his trial, when prosecutors will argue that he should be sentenced to death for his role in the deadly attack in 2013. In sharp contrast to the guilt phase of the trial, when lawyers for the ethnic Chechen defendant did not contest that their client had killed three people and injured 264 in the bombing, the next four weeks are expected to feature emotional testimony from both sides as Tsarnaev fights for his life. The question of whether Tsarnaev, 21, should live or die is highly controversial around Boston. Polls have shown that a plurality of area residents, 49 percent, prefer a life sentence, and family members of two of the people he killed have also spoken out against executing him.


(Reuters) - A fast-moving brush fire east of Los Angeles has forced the evacuation of more than 200 homes just hours after it started, fire department officials said on Sunday.
