McLaughlin won't return as coach of Methuen field hockey, basketball

(Continued)

NCAA rules prohibit dunking within the 20:00 mark before a game. Just seconds before the clock struck 20:00, one of Rohleder’s teammates dunked.

Rohleder appears to be going places. He’s an extremely smart young man.

The 6-3, 215-pounder graduated in the top 10 percent of his high school class, is president of Kansas State’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, majors in mechanical engineering and spent the summer interning with G.E. Johnson and working on the new West Stadium Center, according to his KSU athletic site profile.

CANADIENS IN TOWN

The Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins will play a 7:30 p.m. game today at the TD Garden. The Bruins are trying for their 13th straight victory.

How good has Boston backup goalie Chad Johnson been? Before this season, the 27-year-old had played in just 10 NHL games. He is 16-3-1 with a 2.04 goals against average and a .925 save percentage this winter.

MAKING STRONG CASE

The Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles today at 1:05 p.m. on MLB Network (delay broadcast). Red Sox probable pitchers are LHP Drake Britton, LHP Andrew Miller, RHP Francisco Cordero and LHP Tommy Layne.

Cordero, a 38-year-old who has 329 career saves but hasn’t pitched since 2012, has hurled 8.0 scoreless innings this spring and scattered five hits and one walk while striking eight.

Layne, a 29-year-old, also has hurled 8.0 scoreless frames, squandering two hits and three walks while striking out seven.

Both are making solid cases for belonging on the Red Sox’ Opening Day roster.

NHL’S BEST MASK

Have you seen Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury’s mask. It might just be the coolest mask in the NHL.

“Painted again by Fleury’s long-time artist Stephane Bergeron of Griff Airbrush, the new CCM mask features a flower wearing an old-school goalie mask on the forehead, with the eyes glowing blue through the mask and the petals flowing out from the middle like hair,” according to ingoalmag.com.

Fleury is nicknamed “Flower.”
