Crunch Time

Century mark

Rockport senior hockey captain Conor Douglass is closing in on 100 career points. With a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 7-2 win at Nashoba Tech, Douglass moved to 97 career points. He has at least 10 games to notch the three remaining points to get to 100.

Douglass has been a mainstay on the Vikings hockey team since he was an eighth grader, he looks to join Cam Smith as the second Viking in three years to reach the 100 point mark.

Triple double machine

Rajon Rondo has put up triple doubles at an alarming rate, a rate far higher than any player in the NBA. After Monday night’s triple double against Charlotte Rondo has 13 triple doubles since the beginning of last season, no other player has more than two.

Rondo is one of the most unique players in the game and that shows up in his stat lines.

Gronk has surgery

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent surgery on his broken forearm Tuesday. Gronkowski re-injured his forearm diving for a Tom Brady pass in the first quarter Sunday.

According to reports the All Pro tight end’s injury is not in the same spot as a previous forearm injury that kept him out over a month. Gronkowski will miss the remainder of the playoffs.

Chargers hire coach

Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy agreed to become the San Diego Chargers coach on Tuesday. McCoy will replace the abysmal Norv Turner as the head man on the sidelines for the always underachieving Chargers, who are looking to improve upon a 7-9 record in 2012.
