The Latest on the Miami Dolphins anthem policy (all times local):

10:15 p.m.

The NFL and National Football League Players Association released a joint statement Christian Covington Jersey , saying:

"The NFL and NFLPA, through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue. In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA's grievance and on the NFL's anthem policy. No new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing.

"The NFL and NFLPA reflect the great values of America, which are repeatedly demonstrated by the many players doing extraordinary work in communities across our country to promote equality, fairness and justice.

"Our shared focus will remain on finding a solution to the anthem issue through mutual, good faith commitments, outside of litigation."

7:45 p.m.


Rashad Robinson, executive director of Color of Change, an online civil rights organization that has supported boycotting the NFL Dede Westbrook Jersey , points out that the Dolphins' policy puts protesting the national anthem on the same plane as testing positive for drugs or domestic violence charges.

A positive drug test carries a potential four-game suspension, and domestic violence charges can carry a six-game suspension and even a lifetime ban for a second offense.

"It speaks volumes about what they think about black people," Robinson said. "What the Dolphins and owner Stephen Ross are doing is making a real claim that the injustices that people are speaking out against don't matter."

Robinson said he has been in touch in recent months with Ross' Initiative in Sports for Equality, or RISE, to help find new leadership for the nonprofit. RISE is "dedicated to harnessing the unifying power of sports to improve race relations and drive social progress," according to the organization's website.

"(Ross') idea of harnessing people's political voice is shutting it down," Robinson said.

The Dolphins say "all options are still open" regarding the team's decision to include protesting the anthem on the large list of violations considered conduct detrimental to the club and subject to a suspension of up to four games under a team policy issued this week.

The "Proper Anthem Conduct" section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of "conduct detrimental to the club" that includes gambling, riding motorcycles and more, all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.

COLUMBUS Jermey Parnell Jersey , Ohio — After losing two games to start the postseason, the Washington Capitals stand on the brink of completing a comeback and advancing to the next round in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

A 4-3 overtime victory on Saturday in Washington gave the Capitals a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and put them one win from closing out the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Game 6 will be played Monday night at Nationwide Arena, where the Capitals already have won twice in the playoffs.

“It’s a big win moving forward,” Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin said after the fourth overtime game in the series. “We still have one more game. (We have to) just play our game. It’s simple but it’s hard. They’re not going to give us an easy one. It’s going to be interesting.”

The Capitals keep finding ways to win. Their latest victory came on a goal by Nicklas Backstrom, his second of the game, on a redirection of a shot by Dmitry Orlov at 11:53 of overtime after Washington was outshot 16-1 in the third period.

“We know (in a) best out of seven series we need to be a little better if we’re going to win it,” Backstrom said. “I honestly thought we got a little lucky. But we’ll take it.

“We need be a little more aggressive. We need to be better with the puck.”

The bounces had gone the Blue Jackets’ way in their two overtime wins to start the series, but little has gone right for them since then.

The Blue Jackets were beaten in double overtime in Game 3 at home, struggled in Game 4, also at their own rink Barry Sanders Jersey , and then played possibly their best game of the series on Saturday but weren’t rewarded.

With the Blue Jackets in a must-win predicament, they expect to put forth their best effort on Monday. Coach John Tortorella was confident enough to say after the latest loss in Washington, “I won’t have to say a damn word to them. We’ll be back here for Game 7.”

Ovechkin made a similar prediction after Washington dropped the first two games in the series, saying the team would win the next two in Columbus. The Capitals did just that.

Washington coach Barry Trotz understands that Tortorella is trying to motivate his team with a bold prediction.

“Well, what else are you going to say?” Trotz said. “That’s good. He wants to get it out there (that) he believes in his team, just as I believe in my team. So it’s our job for that not to happen, and we’re going to try to do that.”

Can the Blue Jackets deliver for Tortorella and the Columbus fans, who have yet to see the franchise win a playoff series since its inaugural season in 2000-01?

“Our backs are against the wall, right?” Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said. “If you can’t play your best game come Monday, then that’s disappointing. I don’t have any worries at all about our group going into Monday. If we have the same effort Richard Dent Jersey , the same mentality that we did (Saturday), we should be just fine.”

Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert, who scored two goals (one short-handed), quickly put Game 5 behind him and looked ahead to Monday night.

“I can’t wait to get back in front of fans,” he said. “I think we really owe them one. It’s a great barn. It’s going to be tough for them to come in. We’re excited about it.

“We’ve got an epic game at home to tie this up. … We want to have a dominant effort at home and get back to Washington.”

Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones said, “It’s do or die. Desperation level is at an all-time high. We feel confident going on our home ice.”

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby withstood the Blue Jackets’ third-period attack, finishing with 39 saves and giving Washington a chance to come away with a win in overtime. He expects another nail-biter in the highly competitive matchup between the Metropolitan Division teams.

Washington is 7-8 all time in games when it has a 3-2 series lead.

“It’s going to best game yet of the series,”Holtby said. “Both teams are not giving an inch, fighting for every little inch out there. We know they’re going to come out hard for Game 6.”
