Starting Five: Sports fans' to-do list for the week of 6/11

June 10, 2012

WATCH

New Jersey vs. Los Angeles

7 p.m. Monday, NBC

Los Angeles—a No. 8 seed, mind you—was cruising through the Stanley Cup finals until the Devils finally offered some resistance. Now, in Game 6, the pressure's REALLY on. Any team that eliminated the hated Vancouver Canucks and Phoenix Coyotes, as the Kings did, should get a Blackhawks fan's vote.

READ

"Off Balance"

Available Tuesday

In this memoir, 1996 American gold medalist Dominique Moceanu "reveals the often dark underbelly of Olympic gymnastics as only an insider can." It's not the image the Olympics want to portray, especially with the London Games around the corner. But if it has a cathartic effect on the Moceanu family, good for them.

ATTEND

Sky vs. Seattle

7 p.m. Wednesday, Allstate Arena

Quick. Guess who the hottest team in Chicago is. If you said the Sky, pat yourself on the back. They're giving fans plenty of reasons to attend games, first and foremost being their five-game winning streak. Seattle's headed the other direction, having lost three in a row. Could be easy pickings for Epiphanny Prince, Sylvia Fowles and Co.

ATTEND

Cubs vs. Boston

Friday-Sunday, Wrigley Field

The team Theo Epstein helped make a powerhouse comes to the Friendly Confines for a three-game interleague series. Will the Cubs make it competitive? Will he change his mind and want his old job back? Will anyone stick around long enough to find out?

ATTEND

Fire vs. New York

4 p.m. Sunday, Toyota Park

The Fire will try to climb above the .500 mark and reel in the Red Bulls, one of the teams they're chasing in the Eastern Conference, at the same time. It's never too early to start thinking about the playoff push, either.
