Cristian Ronaldo's header boosts Real Madrid victory, Miami Hurricanes win the ACC title, and Pittsburg Penguins take No. 1 spot in NHL Atlantic Division.

Madrid, Spain: Cristiano Ronaldo’s header was the first of four unanswered goals to spur Real Madrid to a come-from-behind 5-2 against Mallorca last Saturday. This was also Ronaldo’s 350th career goal.

Miami, Fla.: The Miami Hurricanes thundered past North Carolina on Sunday to win the ACC title, 87-77. Miami had already won the regular season before the tourney started, and they are expected to do well in the NCAA championship chase.

Pittsburgh, Pa.: The Pittsburgh Penguins slid into the No.1 spot in the NHL Atlantic Division by beating the New York Rangers last Saturday 3-0. This was the Penguins’ 8th straight win, and they are now contending for the league’s best record with Montreal and Boston.
