Rangers’ Vigneault On WFAN: We Will Get Through This Heartbreak

CBS New York

NEW YORK (WFAN) — In the four days since the Rangers’ season ended with a crushing loss in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, the players have really been at a loss for words to explain what happened.

There really isn’t a simple explanation why the Blueshirts lost 2-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deciding game, but during an interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday, head coach Alain Vigneault tried his best to make sense of it all.

“When you are one period away from getting another opportunity to challenge for the Stanley Cup … it’s going to take some time,” Vigneault said.

“You get so emotionally involved – yourself, your family members and friends and your team – when you get so close you can’t just from one day to the next turn the switch to something. We’ll get through it, but it will…

NYC Woman Cleared Of Charges In Bronx Balcony Death

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New York City woman accused of chasing a woman to her death from a 14th floor balcony has been acquitted of all charges.

A jury in the Bronx failed to convict Kenya Edmonds Monday in the 2012 death of 30-year-old Sienna Edwards.

According to police, Edmonds was attending her daughter’s third birthday party at the Clinton Towers apartments in 2012 when Edwards showed up with a gift from the girl’s dad against whom Edmonds had a restraining order.

Police said that at some point, Edwards made a call to 911 seeking help. The 911 operator had already sent a squad car to the nearest cell tower where Edwards secretly called 911 and picked up the women allegedly threatening her.

Prosecutors alleged Edmonds then threatened Edwards with a knife during an argument. Edwards fled to the balcony, where she fell or was pushed, prosecutors said.

Edmonds’ attorney said no DNA evidence supported the knife claim.

Story of the Day from CBS New York.

CBS New York

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Politicians weren’t the only big winners on Election Day.

One lucky person holds the winning ticket for Tuesday night’s $321 million Mega Millions jackpot.

The ticket was purchased in Middletown in Orange County, CBS2 reported.

The single ticket matched all six numbers: 9, 15, 24, 39 and 41, plus the Mega Ball of 1.

Tickets sold in California, New Jersey and Texas, which matched five numbers, but missed the Mega Ball number, are worth $1 million each. One ticket sold in New York also matched five numbers, but is worth $4 million because the person played the optional Megaplier.

The jackpot has been rolling since late August. It’s the eighth largest in Mega Millions history.

Report: Girl Falls Asleep Up To 30 Times A Day After Getting Flu Shot

CBS Atlanta

EDINBURGH, U.K. (CBS Atlanta) — A 15-year-old girl is reportedly falling asleep up to 30 times a day after getting a flu shot.

Australia’s News Limited reports Chloe Glasson began suffering from narcolepsy four months after being injected with Pandemrix, a vaccine to combat against swine flu, in November 2009. She is one of at least 100 people to suffer from the sleeping disorder after getting vaccinated with Pandemrix.

“She has gone from being a bright, outgoing girl to one who cannot go out on her own,” Rebecca Glasson, Chloe’s mother, told News Limited. “She doesn’t doze for more than a couple of hours at a time, but she can have disturbing dreams.”

Chloe Glasson will begin a new treatment of the specialist drug sodium oxybate at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, U.K., in hopes to get back to a normal sleeping pattern.

No Surgery — Yet? Jets’ Sanchez Reportedly Plans To Rehab Shoulder

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez plans to continue to rehab his injured right shoulder, though season-ending surgery is still on the table, according to multiple reports.

Sanchez was “likely to have surgery” after Dr. James Andrews found a tear in the labrum, ESPN reported late Thursday night.

However, Sanchez disputed the account in a text message to the network: “If I needed surgery right now, I never would have left Andrews’ office. I would’ve stayed and got the surgery.”

“There’s nothing to report,” he added. “It’s reckless.”

Sanchez was hurt after a controversial decision by head coach Rex Ryan to insert the quarterback late in New York’s third preseason game against the Giants. The 26-year-old was crushed behind the Jets’ backups on the offensive line, the injury effectively ending his competition for the starting job with rookie Geno Smith.

“We’re getting every opinion possible,” Sanchez said this…

Girl’s Hair Gets Caught In Handheld Fan Handed Out By CPS

CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago Public Schools has 36,000 solutions to help its kids deal with the terrible heat: tiny portable fans.

And a first-grader who used one of the handheld fans ended up with a haircut, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Shortly after the fans were distributed at Smyser Elementary School, where only the upper grades have air conditioning, a 6-year-old’s hair got caught in her fan and her teacher had to cut it out, according to the girl’s mother, Suzanne Kusar.

Not every CPS school is fully air-conditioned, so as this week’s temps tied record highs, the district amassed 36,000 personal fans and handed them out to at least 33 schools that requested them, according to district spokeswoman Keiana Barrett.

The foam-bladed fans, 17,200 of which were distributed, were donated, according to Barrett. She could not immediately name the donor.

Smyser received about 480 fans and handed them out…
