"He's our captain, he's our leader," McLellan said of McDavid. "He's, in my opinion, the best player on earth right now and he decided that he was going to will his team to a win." McDavid 5

October 16, 2018 11:37 PM Eight games every Raptors fan should circle on their calendar

Wednesday vs. Cleveland: The season opener will give fans a first glimpse at these new-look Raptors, plus the Cavaliers without LeBron James. Does the rivalry persist without the King on the court? This game could give us an answer. Friday vs. Boston: This could be a preview of next spring’s Eastern Conference final. It will be a good early test for Kawhi 5

October 16, 2018 11:29 PM Raptors’ Bench Mob on verge of getting whacked

“Last year it was like having two separate teams; it was like football almost where you had five in five out. So I think it’ll be a bit more meshed.” But the Bench Mob, RIP, was beloved, even if it turns out to be a one-year wonder. It played more quickly as a group than the first unit did, Siakam’s ability to run the floor was eye-opening and VanVleet 5

October 16, 2018 2:26 AM Kapanen, Sparks help Maple Leafs stretch win streak to five

Offensive stars: Defenceman Jake Gardiner assisted on the Leafs’ first two goals. He has yet to score this season, but he’s still contributing on offence with great stretch passes … Kapanen notched his third goal of the season with a bank shot off Kings goalie Jack Campbell just 46 seconds into the game. Midway through the third period, Kapanen scored 8

October 15, 2018 10:43 PM No deal for Raptors’ Wright by contract extension deadline

It was not a surprising move. Wright is seen as a viable part of the team’s future but not having long-term money tied up leaves the luxury-tax-paying franchise with some measure of flexibility next summer. They retain the right to match any offer Wright gets in July, so it’s not as if they are cutting him totally adrift after the season that begins 6

October 15, 2018 9:34 PM Kings’ Doughty calls Leafs the real deal — but never wanted to play here

The Leafs’ primary measuring stick — after the score, of course — is high-end chances for and against, tracked by the research and development team led by Darryl Metcalf. The stats are largely proprietary and not available publicly unless they feel like sharing. After Saturday night’s 4-2 win in Washington, though, coach Mike Babcock said the Leafs had 12 high-end 7

October 15, 2018 4:39 PM Garret Sparks to start for Maple Leafs against the Kings

Sporting News: How difficult was it to evaluate Garret’s first game, which was that wild offensive affair in Chicago? Babcock: The great thing about it, just like you, get evaluated every day in life. Same in pro hockey. Tonight's game marks the 150th meeting between the Maple Leafs and Kings. ...The Maple Leafs have a record of 62-64-21-2 in the previous 8

October 15, 2018 3:18 AM Monday NHL preview: Los Angeles Kings at Toronto Maple Leafs

The Kings’ Drew Doughty, one of the top three defencemen in the NHL, has yet to score through five games but is a plus-5. The Leafs’ Morgan Rielly, on the other hand, leads all blue-liners with 13 points in six games. The Kings lost 5-1 to the Senators on Saturday in Dion Phaneuf’s return to Ottawa, falling to 2-2-1. They controlled the play early and outshot 9

October 15, 2018 3:17 AM Price didn’t win, but Red Sox did to tie ALCS with Astros

BOSTON—David Price was good enough, the Red Sox bullpen was even better, and Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a go-ahead, three-run double off the Green Monster on Sunday night to lead Boston to a 7-5 victory over the Houston Astros and tie the AL Championship Series at one game apiece. Price fell one out short of his first career post-season win as a starter 10
