So this is what it's like to make a film "based on a true story." How Lifetime of us.

CSNNE.com Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty lost his passport in Ottawa over All-Star Weekend, placing him in limbo for a few hours before matters could be sorted out. The story took life on twitter with the hashtag: freejoehaggerty.

Ever ready to hit the big time, The Great American Hockey Show seized the moment, producing a dramatized trailer to entice Hollywood into making a feature-length film.

Haggerty gives a synopsis of the true story at the beginning of this video, leading into the trailer. A more detailed account can be found in print.

Chris Sale strikes out 11 in 4-0 win over Mariners

SEATTLE - Chris Sale pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, top prospect Rafael Devers became the youngest Boston player to hit a home run in more than 50 years, and the Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Wednesday to salvage the final game of the series.

Barely 12 hours after the clubs wrapped up a five-hour, 13-inning marathon, the Red Sox got exactly what they needed from their ace to avoid being swept. The left-hander was masterful, striking out 11, the 14th time this season he had at least 10 strikeouts in a game. He allowed doubles to Jean Segura and Guillermo Heredia, and a broken-bat single to Ben Gamel, but none of the three to reach base via hit ever advanced.

Sale (13-4) has struck out at least nine batters in each of his 12 road starts this season, the longest streak dating to 1913.
