Zac Blair leads Web.com Tour Championship (The Associated Press)
Zac Blair topped the Web.com Tour Championship leaderboard at 13 under Friday when second-round play was suspended because of darkness. Blair was 5 under with three holes left in the round that was delayed because of rain. ''It's a little difficult not knowing when you're going to have to stop and come back,'' Blair said. Everyone this afternoon has to.'' After missing the cuts in the first three events in the Web.com Tour Finals, Blair needs to earn about $40,000 in the season finale to earn a PGA Tour card.

LA Kings return to camp eager for title defense (Yahoo Sports)
After a summer crammed with Stanley Cup celebrations across the globe, the Los Angeles Kings are back at work with their eyes on some rarefied goals. The Kings went through their first workouts of training camp Friday as they prepare for their run at a third NHL title in four seasons. ''It was a short summer, but we'll take it like that any time we can get it,'' center Anze Kopitar said. Nearly the entire roster from last summer's championship club is back in black, and the Kings appear to be largely healed from the accumulated aches of their latest trip deep into the postseason.
