Team co-owner and former star forward Mario Lemieux won an NHL award Saturday for having the greatest moment in the history of the league. 

Lemieux’s five goals in five different ways against the New Jersey Devils in 1988 beat out Bobby Orr’s game-winning goal to win the 1970 Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins. 

The contest was voted on by fans to commemorate the NHL’s first 100 years. Fans voted on the bracket-style format to determine which moment was the greatest. 

On Dec. 31, 1988, Lemieux scored an even-strength goal, a power-play goal, a short-handed goal, a penalty shot goal and an empty net goal. It was the only time in NHL history that a player had scored in five different ways.

‘SNL’ crew trims Christmas tree with Trump’s ‘haters and losers’

“War is over, if you want it,” John Lennon sang in “Happy Christmas.”

Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump character had a new twist to an old song.

“The war on Christmas is over,” Baldwin’s character said to open “Saturday Night Live” on NBC. “It will soon be replaced by the war with North Korea.”

The crew of SNL continued its biting sarcasm of the president, as Baldwin stood with Cecily Strong, who played Melania Trump. 

“It's Christmas time. Soon white Santa will be coming from house to house, taking presents from Muslims and illegals and giving them to American children,” Baldwin said.

He then said he was going to decorate his “tree of shame,” with ornaments that depicted this year’s “haters and losers.”

White House staffers were invited to trim the tree with ornaments, and Kate McKinnon kicked things off as Kellyanne Conway, who chose former FBI Director James Comey.

“Thank you Kellyanne,” Baldwin said. “What would you like to have for Christmas.”

“I want out,” she said.

Aidy Bryant's, playing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was next. She hung two ornaments on the tree. One had the face of former Press Secretary Sean Spicer and of former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. She chose them because they were “the mangled corpses” she had to step over to get her job.

Scarlett Johansson, playing Ivanka Trump, was asked by Baldwin about the whereabouts of her husband, Jared Kushner.

“He's packing a go bag before the FBI arrives,” she said.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for humor. 

Here’s the entire sketch:

'A Prairie Home Companion' name becomes 'Live from Here'

"A Prairie Home Companion" has been given a new name — "Live from Here" — in the wake of creator Garrison Keillor's acrimonious split with Minnesota Public Radio.

Chris Thile, the mandolin virtuoso who has hosted the weekly variety show since Keillor's retirement last year, announced the new name Saturday evening as the show opened a live performance in New York City.

MPR terminated its contracts with Keillor after it said it had received multiple allegations of improper conduct by Keillor. MPR has declined to give any details except to say the allegations involved treatment of one woman who had worked with Keillor when he was still with the show.

Keillor has said he accidentally touched a woman's bare back while trying to console her.

Mario Batali gives holiday recipe in same email as apology

Celebrity chef Mario Batali has issued an apology to his newsletter subscribers for his sexual misconduct against women, but he confounded some by ending his message with a recipe for a "holiday-inspired breakfast."

Batali was immediately blasted on social media for including in the Friday email the "Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls" recipe after his apology for making "many mistakes."

Several women have made allegations that he touched them inappropriately. Batali admitted his behavior and first apologized in a statement Monday.

He has stepped down from his restaurant empire and was kicked off the ABC cooking show, "The Chew." The Food Network also scrapped plans to air new episodes of his hit '90s cooking show, "Molto Mario."

An email sent to Batali's media team Saturday seeking comment was not immediately returned.

Massive California wildfire triggers new wave of evacuations

New evacuations were called on Saturday as surging winds drove an enormous wildfire toward a wealthy enclave in the coastal foothills northwest of Los Angeles.

The mandatory evacuations around Montecito and neighboring Summerland came as winds that had eased a day earlier raged back at around 30 mph (48 kph) with gusts to about 60 mph (97 kph). A portion of Santa Barbara city also is under mandatory evacuation.

The northerly "sundowner" wind was driving the fire south and west.

"When the sundowners surface in that area and the fire starts running down slopes, you are not going to stop it," Mark Brown with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said at a news conference. "And we are not going to stand in front of it and put firefighters in untenable situations."

For the 13th straight day, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning of extreme fire danger because of hot, dry, windy conditions.

The 404-square-mile Thomas Fire was moving rapidly westward and crested Montecito Peak, just north of Montecito. Known for its star power, the enclave boasts the mansions of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and many other celebrities.

"It is right above the homes," fire spokesman Jude Olivas said.

Winfrey expressed her dismay at the latest development on her Twitter account.

"Still praying for our little town. Winds picked up this morning creating a perfect storm of bad for firefighters," Winfrey tweeted. It was not clear if the former talk show host was in Montecito.

The fire is now the third-largest in California history. It has burned more than 700 homes and killed a state firefighter.

Cory Iverson, 32, died Thursday from burns and smoke inhalation, according to autopsy results announced Saturday by the Ventura County medical examiner's office. Details of his death were not released.

Since the fire began on Dec. 4, about 95,000 people have been placed under mandatory evacuation. The evacuation zone is now 17 miles long and up to 5 miles wide. It extends from the mountains to the sea.

In the Montecito area, freeway off-ramps leading into the community were closed and residents were seen piling into cars and leaving, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Santa Barbara Zoo, which is near the mandatory evacuation zone, announced it was putting some animals in crates to prepare for possible evacuation. The zoo has about 150 species of animals, including a pair of Amur leopards, a critically endangered species.

Everything about the fire has been massive, from the sheer scale of destruction that cremated entire neighborhoods to the legions attacking it: about 8,300 firefighters from nearly a dozen states, aided by 78 bulldozers and 29 helicopters.

The cause remains under investigation. So far, firefighting costs have surpassed $100 million.
