INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The left knee of Knicks guard Iman Shumpert doesn't appear to be getting any better and it could keep him out of tonight's Game 4 of the playoff series against Indiana. Coach Mike Woodson told reporters that the team was bringing in a doctor to examine Shumpert's sore, swollen knee, the same one that required surgery last May after he tore a ligament during the playoffs. The Knicks trail in the series two-games-to-one.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb says he will officially retire with the Philadelphia Eagles this fall. McNabb led the Eagles to four NFC championship games and a Super Bowl loss in 11 seasons before he was traded to Washington in 2010. He hasn't played since 2011. McNabb holds a number of franchise passing records.

DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars have fired coach Glen Gulutzan, whose two seasons behind the bench extended the team's missed playoff streak to a franchise-record five straight seasons. The Stars were 64-57-9 under Gulutzan, including 22-22-4 in the lockout-shortened 2013 season.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh is sticking with goaltender Tomas Vokoun (voh-KOON') for Game 1 of their second-round playoff series against Ottawa tonight, after he led the Penguins to a first-round win over the Islanders. The 36-year-old Vokoun replaced struggling starter Marc-Andre Fleury (marhk-ahn-dray FLOOR'-ee) and won Games 5 and 6 of the opening-round series, stopping 66 of the 69 shots he faced against the Islanders.

NEW YORK (AP) — Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby, Wild goaltender Josh Harding and Boston defenseman Adam McQuaid are the nominees for the NHL's Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy. The award is presented to "the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."
