Honolulu, HI ( - Justin Thomas exploded up the leaderboard with a second-round, 9-under 61 on Friday, while Matt Kuchar carded a 7-under 63 and they both joined Webb Simpson in the lead at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Simpson, who finished round one tied for first with Paul Casey, carded a 4- under 66. Thomas and Kuchar joined Simpson at 12-under-par 128 and they hold a 2-shot lead heading into the weekend at Waialae Country Club. Kuchar has seven career victories on the PGA Tour, while Simpson has four wins, including the 2012 U.S. Open title. Thomas, a rookie, has never won on tour. Troy Merritt (64) and Tim Clark (65) are both tied for third at 10-under 130. Right behind them are Russell Knox (65) and Rory Sabbatini (67) at minus-9. Casey managed to shoot an even-par 70 and he is tied for eighth with defending champion Jimmy Walker (66), Marc Leishman (62), Ryan Palmer (63), J.J. Henry (67) and Robert Streb (69) at 8-under 132. Thomas, already playing in his sixth event of the season, made the biggest jump up the leaderboard Friday, a round that featured a spectacular finish. Playing the back nine first, Thomas started off with six straight pars before the birdies started to fall. The 21-year-old then rattled off three straight gains from No. 16 and he made the turn at minus-3. Thomas drained two more birdies on two and five, putting him at 5-under for the day and 8-under for the week heading to the par-3 seventh. Still four shots behind the leaders, Thomas finished on fire. After rolling in a 12-foot birdie putt on seven, Thomas poured in another gain on eight, getting him to within two of Kuchar and Simpson. Thomas then hit the green in two on the par-5 ninth and made a 17-foot eagle putt to complete an incredible round and vault him into a tie for the lead. Im excited. Its a position I havent been in before and I think that kind of comes with the territory being a rookie, said Thomas. Im going to hopefully find myself in a lot of positions this year ... Im just really excited about the opportunity. Kuchar, playing alongside Simpson for the second straight day, was very consistent on Friday. The No. 11 player in the world made three birdies on the front nine at two, five and nine, making the turn at minus-3. Kuchar then rolled in three more birdies on 10, 12 and 13. The 36-year-old then sandwiched a birdie on 16 in between four pars to finish up his round. I drove it really well and when you drive it well the course becomes much more attackable, said Kuchar. It was a much better ball-striking round for me and Ive continued two days of really good putting. Simpson, who ditched the belly putter and is using a conventional putter for the first time as a professional this week, had another good day on the greens. Following four straight pars to start the day, Simpson tripped to his only bogey on No. 5. He responded with birdies on six and nine, putting Simpson at minus-1 as he made the turn. Like the start of the front nine, Simpson made four straight pars from No. 10 to begin the back side. The U.S. Open champion finished strong with three birdies over his final five holes on 14, 15 and 18. Its felt good, Simpson said about using the new putter. Ive been nervous to get started this season using a short putter, but just thankful ... Thankfully Im 12-under and have had a good start. NOTES: Thomas finished one shot off the course record of 60, which was set by Davis Love III in 1994. Love went on to finish runner-up that year ... Thomas won the Nationwide Childrens Hospital Championship in the Tour Finals Series last season ... Kuchars last win came at the RBC Heritage last season ... Simpson last won at last seasons Shriners Hospitals for Children Open ... Matt Every was disqualified for using a non-conforming club ... With the cut falling at 2-under 138, 85 players advanced to the weekend. Jake Bischoff Jersey . Atletico Madrid made it three wins from three thanks to a double from in-form striker Diego Costa in a 3-0 victory at Austria Vienna, leaving the Spanish side on the brink of the last 16 already to continue its brilliant start to the season. Jonathan Marchessault Jersey . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. . The Tiger-Cats announced on Friday the linebacker has signed a new contract with the team through the 2016 season. Maxime Lagace Jersey . Not Peyton Manning. Hes holding on to the heartache to stoke his competitive fire. James Neal Jersey . A spokeswoman for the NLRB says its "a very incremental move" and does not necessarily indicate the board is close to a finding in the case. NFL owners filed an unfair labour charge against the players union in February, arguing that the union was not negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement in good faith.ANAHEIM, Calif. - The width of Alec Martinezs shin guard was the difference between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks in their playoff series opener. Corey Perry had the puck on his stick with a nearly open net early in overtime, but Martinez managed to block the shot by the Ducks best goal-scorer. It happened in an instant, but both players were still thinking about the pivotal play a day later as they prepared for Game 2 on Monday night. "I guess I channeled my inner goalie, playing in the driveway when I was younger," Martinez said Sunday after the latest round of congratulations for his game-saving block. "I just tried to get in front of it, and maybe got a little bit lucky, too." No hockey game turns on one play, and the Kings wouldnt have even made it to overtime without Marian Gaboriks tying goal with 7 seconds left in regulation in their 3-2 win. Several minutes after Martinezs big save, Gaboriks game-winner put the Kings up 1-0 in the second round with their fifth consecutive playoff victory. Both teams expect a long, taxing series between evenly matched opponents with a thorough mutual familiarity. They wont be surprised if more games in the series come down to one blocked shot, one extra pass or one big save. Perry still wont soon forget his missed opportunity to put the Ducks in front in the series. "Ive seen it a few times," said a grimacing Perry, who scored 43 goals in the regular season and two more in the first round against Dallas. "I was up for a while. You think about what it could have been. "He made a great play," Perry added. "I thought I had an open net, and obviously I tried to put it in, but he just got his leg on it, and I missed the rebound. Hopefully its a different bounce next time." Even before the late theatrics, the Southern California rivals first playoff meeting was every bit as entertaining as expected. The Kings have little trouble winning on the road, while the Ducks were a dominant home team this season — but neither team is likely to have a distinct hoome-ice advantage.dddddddddddd "I thought the atmosphere was great," Kings forward Justin Williams said. "A lot of times when youre on the road, all you want to hear is silence. But there wasnt even much silence when we scored. There was a lot of Kings fans there and a lot of support for us, so that was the extra added element to the game. Usually when you score an overtime goal, its crickets in the building, and we heard a little something, so Kings fans are making their way down the freeway." Perry, Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne all had big moments for the Ducks, who controlled play for long stretches and got a strong performance from new starting goalie Jonas Hiller. Anaheim still couldnt capitalize on its opportunities to pull away, failing to crack the NHLs best defence with its habitually struggling power play. The Ducks might have more offensive ability than the Kings, but they also know it wont matter unless it leads to goals. "We didnt bury our few chances," Getzlaf said. "I dont think theyve changed much. Theyre still the team we know. Theyve just upped their intensity, and weve got to match it." The defence-minded Kings have been impressive offensively during their playoff winning streak. Los Angeles has 21 goals in its last five games, and Anze Kopitar has become the post-seasons leading scorer so far. The Kings are scoring well, but their defensive depth became even shallower in victory: Veteran defenceman Jeff Schultz could make his debut for Los Angeles in Game 2 if injured Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr must sit out. Down to five healthy defencemen for much of Game 1 at Honda Center, the Kings still managed to limit the Ducks to two goals. "I had a little chat with (coach Darryl Sutter), and he said, Just go out there and play," said Schultz, who played for Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau in Washington during his 399 games of NHL experience. "Its hard to replace a guy like Robyn, but I feel like Im capable of doing a similar job to what he can do."
