FLIP SERVICE Vancouver defenseman Dan Hamhuis upended Bruins forward Milan Lucic with a spectacular check during the second period of the Canucks' 1--0 Game 1 victory in the Stanley Cup finals on June 1 (page 58). Hamhuis, however, came out worse for wear—he left the game with a lower-body injury and missed Games 2 and 3 as well; as of Monday his status for the remainder of the series was uncertain. Lucic was uninjured.

FLOOR POLISH Dwyane Wade drove the lane against the Mavericks in the Heat's 92--84 victory in Game 1 of the NBA Finals in Miami on May 31. Wade, and not LeBron James, emerged as the Heat's floor leader during the first three games of the series, over which he averaged 29 points, nine rebounds and five assists as Miami took a 2--1 series lead (page 34).

ARCH BUNKER Padraig Harrington played a ceremonial first wedge out of the newly christened Sarazen Bunker at Prince's Golf Club in Sandwich, England, on June 1. The greenside trap on the 9th hole of the Himalayas course is named in honor of Gene Sarazen, who famously hit out of the hazard with his newly invented sand wedge on the way to victory in the British Open in 1932.
