Lots of action in the world of sports this past weekend. Here are three big highlights from three big events.

Back-to-back OT for Bruins and Blackhawks

The Bruins and Blackhawks met for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday, and once again the two teams needed extra time to decide on a winner. The teams needed only one OT (Game 1 went 3 overtime periods), but this time the Bruins found the net first. Boston heads up with the series tied 1-1.

Spurs take 3-2 lead in NBA Finals

In the NBA, the Spurs and Heat were tied 2-2 going in to Sunday's Game 5. Both teams have won close games, both have won blow outs. But no team has won two in a row. There was a lot on the line in Game 5. The winner would be one win away from the NBA Championship, the loser would need to play with desperation. At the final buzzer, the Spurs were on top 114-104 to send the series back to Miami for the crucial Game 6. In the win, Spurs forward Danny Green set a Finals record for three-pointers, hitting 25-38 from downtown. 

Historic hole-in-one at U.S. Open

The top golfers in the world hit the links at Merion in Ardmore, PA,  this weekend for the U.S. Open. Justin Rose topped the field, winning his fifth PGA Tour event. Phil Mickelson hoped to celebrate his birthday with his first U.S. Open victory, but he finished in second. For the fourth time. Nearly everyone's play was rough throughout the Open, but there was one bright spot: A hole-in-one. And it was a weird one, hitting the rough and slow-rolling back right to the hole. It was the first hole-in-one at a U.S. Open played at Merion.
