    EDMONTON—Milan Lucic and Zack Kassian each scored a pair of goals as the Edmonton Oilers came away with a 7-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl also scored for the Oilers (22-21-3), who have won two of their last three. Casey Mittelstadt and Evan Rodrigues replied for the Sabres (23-17-6), who have lost three

  • Leafs turn in stinker against the previously struggling Avalanche

    January 15, 2019 2:46 AM 6

    And then the Avalanche played downhill. Gabriel Landeskog on a deflection at the 6:33 mark; a Nathan MacKinnon breakaway that was stopped a minute later; Mikko Rantanen stripping Nazem Kadri to end a two-turnover Toronto shift with a goal. Carl Soderberg then outbattled Jake Gardiner for a puck that had been knocked loose on a Toronto power play and scored

  • Avalanche fortunate not to have been buried in the West during slide

    January 15, 2019 12:26 AM 5

    “It’s a tough test for us right now, what we’re going through,” Landeskog said. “A lot of guys in this dressing room haven’t gone through things like this at this level. Last year, we didn’t have a stretch like this of six weeks without a whole lot of wins. We have to stick together.” The Leafs, by comparison, had earned 12 points since Dec. 19. If they had earned

  • Saints squeak past Eagles into NFC championship game

    Brees had 2-yard touchdown passes to rookie Keith Kirkwood and all-pro wideout Michael Thomas, who had 12 receptions for 171 yards. Philadelphia had ball for more than nine minutes in the first quarter, after which the Eagles had the ball about 13 minutes and never scored. New Orleans, which routed Philadelphia 48-7 in November, gambled on its first

    LOS ANGELES—C.J. Anderson rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns, and Todd Gurley rushed for 115 more and another TD in the Los Angeles Rams’ first playoff victory in 14 years, 30-22 over the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round on Saturday night. Gurley and Anderson punished the Cowboys’ normally sturdy run defence and sent the second-seeded Rams (14-3) to the NFC championship

  • Raptors’ reserves are finally settling into their roles

    January 12, 2019 11:07 PM 8

    It was a stellar night that included 22-of-44 shooting from the field, six three-pointers in 15 attempts, 16 rebounds and only two combined turnovers. The combination of VanVleet and Wright seems to be rounding into the same form that made them so dangerous last season. They had 22 points and eight assists between them but, most important, they were flying

  • New Toronto Raptor Patrick McCaw keeping things in perspective

    January 12, 2019 12:59 AM 13

    Patrick McCaw, the free-agent guard who officially signed with the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, knows that better than most. The 23-year-old former Golden State Warrior suffered a particularly scary bone bruise when he was undercut by Vince Carter in a game against the Sacramento Kings last April. McCaw landed hard on his back and was stretchered

  • New York Yankees agree to deal with Gold Glover D.J. LeMahieu

    January 11, 2019 10:21 PM 12

    The 30-year-old LeMahieu spent the previous eight seasons with Colorado at hitter-friendly Coors Field and won the NL batting title in 2016 with a .348 average. He hit .276 last year with 15 homers and 62 RBIs, and he won his second straight Gold Glove and third overall. New York was seeking infielders in the absence of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who is recovering

  • Oilers forward Draisaitl voted in to all-star game, Leafs defenceman Rielly out

    January 11, 2019 6:10 PM 10

    Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl was among the last additions for the upcoming NHL all-star game, while Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly was one of a few high-profile players to be left out. The NHL released the final four additions to the all-star weekend Friday. Draisaitl (Pacific), Buffalo Sabres left wing Jeff Skinner (Atlantic)

  • Tavares leads Maple Leafs to victory in Jersey

    January 11, 2019 3:02 AM 12

    Whatever was wrong with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the New Jersey Devils have often provided the cure. The Leafs were the better team from the drop of the puck and — despite stubbing their toe with some a sloppy five minutes in the second period — skated off with a 4-2 win in New Jersey on Thursday night. The Leafs had won both previous meetings by lopsided
