Still trying to get the full story. I was just kind of looking over at our bench, and guys started throwing their sticks up in the air.” The Staples Center crowd howled in disbelief, and Quick hung his head. He didn’t stay down for long — and when the Los Angeles crowd gave him a Bronx cheer when he stopped the Rangers’ next dump-in shot, he waved his glove at the fans. “You play 60 minutes and you try to stop the puck for your teammates, that’s the thought process,” Quick said. “Everyone gives up that goal, and it’s part of the game.” Rick Nash assisted on both of Richards’ goals for the Rangers (1-1), who are opening the season on a nine-game road trip. New York had three days off after losing the season opener at Phoenix. With Madison Square Garden getting extensive renovations, New York is on the road until Oct. 28, facing all three California clubs this week. Vigneault is using the time away as a test for the Rangers. “I really liked the way we responded after they scored,” Vigneault said. “We came right back at them and we kept pushing the pace. Obviously, we got a little bit lucky on the third goal, but part of this game. You need a little bit of luck, and we got it there.” Jake Muzzin scored for the Kings (1-2), who have scored only six goals this season after splitting the first two games in the Upper Midwest. The sellout crowd didn’t see much excitement from the Kings, who won their first Stanley Cup title and six playoff rounds in the past two seasons. Los Angeles reached the Western Conference finals last June before losing to eventual champion Chicago, raising expectations for this winter in a hockey town not familiar with consistent success.

If he believes Sabathia can get back to ace status, then bringing back Kuroda becomes less of a priority. If not, then he’ll have to try to retain him. Kuroda shouldn’t make more than $15 million next seasonbut he might. Assess Rotation Following Kuroda Decision Hannah Foslien/Getty Images If Kuroda returns, then the Bombers will only need one starter to replace Pettitte. If they aren’t set on Phelps or Pineda at the No. 5 spot, then they’ll need two. That is much easier to work with than having to replace three members of a rotation. Assessing the rotation prior to signing free agents is the key to putting together a successful offseason. By only addressing areas of need (and making sure that they actually address those areas), the Yankees can have a successful offseason. Expect the first two steps of the process to be resolved within the first two weeks of free agency. John Sommers II/Getty Images There are several options for one-year deals that could interest the Yankees. Bronson Arroyo, Tim Hudson and Jake Westbrook would be worth one-year fliers, though each player is over the age of 35.

New York AG subpoenas Airbnb in ‘bad actors’ battle
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has subpoenaed data on all Airbnb users in New York who have offered to rent out their homes to customers. According to a person familiar with the investigation, Schneiderman’s effort stems from a New York state law signed in 2010 that places limits on residents’ ability to rent out their homes to others. Airbnb, which helps people rent out their houses or apartments for a period of time, said last week that it has 225,000 community members in New York. The Attorney General’s office has been investigating Airbnb for more than a month, a person familiar with the investigation told CNET. The investigation stemmed from complaints by lawmakers and housing advocates. Related stories Tampa is the nicest city in America, says Airbnb The crux of the issue appears to be so-called “bad actors” who find short-term rentals and run amok, according to a person familiar with the investigation. Some of those renters could be sidestepping paying taxes, the person indicated. In addition, the attorney general’s office wants to target those who are renting out multiple units in violation of state law or who are renting out their properties for longer than expressly allowed under the state’s tax laws, a person familiar with the investigation said. A person who is simply trying to rent out their units every now and then — a so-called “casual user” — will not be targeted in the investigation, according to the person. In its statement on the matter, Airbnb said that it agrees that “bad actors” are an issue, and indicated that it believes the attorney general’s office “is only seeking to target an incredibly small number of bad actors who abuse the Airbnb platform.” Despite that cooperation, Airbnb bristled a bit at the subpoena, indicating that the attorney general’s office wants access to all New York-based short-term renters on the company’s service, despite plans to go after those bad actors. Airbnb wants to work with the attorney general to weed out the troublesome renters and keep the rest of its data secure and outside the prying eyes of lawmakers. “We are confident we can reach a solution that protects your personal information and cracks down on people who abuse the system,” Airbnb said today in a statement. The Attorney General’s legal action is just the latest issue Airbnb has faced over the last year . The company has been targeted by governments far and wide over its service, which some say, hurts the hotel business.
