WINNIPEG - The B.C. Lions are playoff bound and dodged a big bullet Saturday night, after quarterback Kevin Glenn went down in the fourth quarter and didn't return in a 28-23 come-from-behind win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
"Just a little headache," Glenn said later said of the issue that kept him from completing the game.
Backup Jason Beck filled in admirably, with touchdown throws to Ernest Jackson and former Bomber Kito Poblah.
MONTREAL - Carey Price is doing a fine job impressing his teammates.
Price stopped 34-of-35 shots as the Montreal Canadiens beat the visiting New York Rangers 3-1 Saturday night at the Bell Centre.
The Canadiens netminder has given up just four goals in his last three starts while stopping 93 shots — good for a .959 save percentage. Last Saturday, Price frustrated the Colorado Avalanche with a 32-save performance, and he limited the Detroit Red Wings to one goal on 28 shots on Tuesday.
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. - Canada's world junior champion Nam Nguyen landed a quadruple Salchow and two triple Axels to win a bronze medal at Skate America on Saturday, in his senior Grand Prix debut.
Tatsuki Machida of Japan took the gold medal with 269.09 points, Jason Brown of the U.S. was second with 234.17, while Nguyen scored 232.24 to finish third.
OTTAWA - Jaromir Jagr scored his NHL record 125th game-winning goal Saturday night to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators.
At 42 years of age, Jagr never ceases to impress. But on this night he was overshadowed.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney wanted to find out more about his team's collective character ahead of Saturday's season finale against the Revolution. And he certainly did, but not in the manner he imagined.
After keeping the post-season bound Revolution at bay for much of the first half, Toronto found themselves on the wrong side of a controversial call that allowed Lee Nguyen to score the game-winner and were forced to stomach a 1-0 loss at Gillette Stadium.
TORONTO - Eight games into the season, Toronto is leaking goals at home and searching for answers.
The door to the Maple Leafs' dressing room was closed longer than usual after Saturday night's 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins as the players talked it out.
"Frustration, anger. Those are two things front and centre that were probably from the coaching staff's perspective," head coach Randy Carlyle said when asked for his emotions during the game. "We didn't win too many battles early in the hockey game."
OTTAWA - Players on opposing teams stood shoulder-to-shoulder in a circle at centre ice as hockey made a stirring return to Ottawa on Saturday night.
Fans, many wearing red and waving Canadian flags, paid their respects to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent as part of a poignant ceremony prior to the Senators' game against the New Jersey Devils.
The glow sticks fans received as they entered the arena stood in place of candles, and for almost 10 minutes the Canadian Tire Centre was the scene of a public, national vigil.
OTTAWA - Lewis Ward's kicks carried the Ottawa Gee-Gees to one of the biggest upsets of the Canadian university football season.
Ward had five field goals — including one from 43 yards out — with three conversions as unranked Ottawa stunned the No. 3 McMaster Marauders 38-18 on Saturday in CIS action.
The Gee-Gees came alive in the second half scoring 27 points en route to handing the Marauders their first loss of the year and securing their own spot in the OUA playoffs.
Ottawa's defence held McMaster's offence to just 137 yards and six points in the second half.
TORONTO - It was another nail-biting win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for Scott Milanovich and the Toronto Argonauts.
Mitchell Gale's one-yard TD run with just over five minutes remaining led Toronto to a thrilling 26-24 win over Hamilton on Saturday night. The Argos not only prevented the Ticats from clinching a playoff berth but also kept their hopes alive to finish atop the East Division.
TORONTO - Don Cherry praised Canadians for their outpouring of support following the deaths of two Canadian soldiers this week.
But in his weekly Coach's Corner segment on "Hockey Night in Canada" on Saturday, the outspoken hockey commentator pleaded with people not to forget all Canadian soldiers injured in combat.
"I'm not putting anybody down, but in about two or three weeks, it will be all forgotten, just like the war in Afghanistan, we'll forget about the wounded guys, with no arms, no legs, blinded and stuff like that. We'll go on," Cherry said.
