Denny Hamlin ended two weeks of Team Penske dominance by winning the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

Hamlin set a track record Friday with a lap at 129.991 mph to earn the top starting spot and ensured that neither Brad Keselowski nor Joey Logano won the pole for the first time since NASCAR's new knockout qualifying debuted three weeks ago.

Keselowski came up just short, settling for second at 129.965.

Logano was fourth, behind Hamlin's teammate Matt Kenseth.

The Colorado Avalanche has reached three-year deals with center John Mitchell and goalie Reto Berra. Mitchell signed a $5.4-million extension, and Reto reached a $4.35-million deal, the Avalanche said.
