Last Saturday afternoon the Brewers won their second postseason game in 29 years with a 4--1 victory over the Diamondbacks behind Yovani Gallardo (pitching). The next day Milwaukee—which was 57--24 at home during the regular season—thumped Arizona 9--4 to take a 2--0 lead in the NLDS.

Though J.J. Watt was called for roughing the passer on this fourth-quarter play—which also nullified a Houston interception return for a TD—the Pittsburgh QB got the worst of the encounter, suffering a sprained left foot that put him in a walking boot and left his status for this weekend unclear. TWENTY THREE PHOTOSPhotographs by Simon BrutyCLOSE UP AND PERSONAL The mugs of Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin are well known, but there are more than two faces in the NHL—and more than two stars. In early September, as part of the league's preseason media tour, a bounty of hockey's brightest lights dropped by SI's Manhattan offices. Among the players pictured at right are four No. 1 draft picks, six Stanley Cup winners, two playoff MVP's, 10 All-Stars and three Olympic gold medalists.

The photo strip for each player can be viewed in SI's iPad app, free to all print subscribers.
