On Headline Sports with Mary Lisa:

#1 Mary Lisa we just wanted to talk to you about Georgia opening up. Atlanta magazine called the idea “a life and death decision” and that “the data to open up doesn’t add up. Georgia governor Brian Kemp is basically opening up because the economic problem is bigger than Coronavirus. The opening means no social distancing and sheltering in is not being forced, gyms, dinning in with others, and retail are all opened up again in Georgia.

#2 NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says games could be held in neutral sites and there would be up to three games a day with fans. Bettman said it was still on the table and that “we don’t live in a world of perfect anymore” also local games are on the table but with no fans.

#3 Nonetheless the Toronto Maple Leafs Auston Matthews and Frederick Anderson are working out at Matthews Arizona home. Anderson is self quarantined in Matthews house and they taking shots and practicing without any ice at the house.

#4 How important is it for the Columbus Blue Jackets to have signed goalie Elvis Merzlinkins to a two year deal

#5 The Pittsburgh Penguins Sydney Crosby express condolences to his hometown Cole Harbour Nova Scotia after 16 people were shot by a man dressed like a Royal Mounted Police officer.
