CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks felt the repercussions of Brent Seabrook's hit on David Backes again on Sunday.

How it affects the rest of their playoff series against the St. Louis Blues remains to be seen.

Seabrook was suspended for three games by the NHL on his 29th birthday for his elbow to Backes' head late in the third period of St. Louis' 4-3 overtime win in Game 2.

Now Chicago has to dig out of a 2-0 hole without one of its best defensemen in a rocky start to its Stanley Cup title defense.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Matt Kuchar overcame a four-stroke deficit to finally finish on top, when his stunning chip-in on the 18th hole gave him a 64 and a victory at the RBC Heritage on Sunday.

Kuchar was four shots behind Luke Donald at the start but made that up with seven birdies on his first 10 holes. He had a birdie putt of less than eight feet at the par-3 17th, but three-putted for bogey to fall into a tie for first.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Phil Hughes ended a personal losing streak that dated to last July, pitching into the seventh inning Sunday and helping the Twins top the Kansas City Royals 8-3 to avoid a three-game sweep.

Hughes (1-1), who signed a $24 million, three-year deal in December, allowed an RBI single to Omar Infante in the fifth and a two-run homer to Alcides Escobar in the seventh while winning for the first time in 17 appearances. He had lost eight games since that victory on July 2.

Wie finally wins an LPGA event at home

KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) — Michelle Wie began the week reminiscing about the first time she played on the LPGA Tour.

She was 12 and still wore braces when she earned a spot in the 2002 Takefugi Classic through a Monday qualifier. She had a swing so powerfully smooth that only weeks earlier Tom Lehman gave her the nickname "Big Wiesy" because she reminded him of Ernie Els.

"I didn't play very well. I was so star-struck on the range," Wie said Sunday. "I was like, 'This is so cool.' I was thinking I could never go back to junior golf after this."

Stars don't feel like it's an 0-2 series vs. Ducks

DALLAS (AP) — Lindy Ruff figures anyone who has watched the Dallas Stars in their first two playoff games should know they won't quit.

Even in a big hole against top-seeded Anaheim before their first home playoff game in six years.

"It doesn't feel like an 0-2 series. We definitely haven't been dominated," said Ruff, the veteran coach in his first season on the Dallas bench. "In fact, the last game we dominated, we just didn't win. So we've got to clean up some of our mistakes and take advantage of some of those key opportunities."
