Leafs force Game 7 with Bruins

TORONTO—The Toronto Maple Leafs won this one for their city.

Frederik Andersen made 32 saves last night as the Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 to force Game 7 in their first-round playoff series.

The victory came hours after 10 people were killed when a van mounted a sidewalk in Toronto's north end and struck multiple pedestrians in what was described as a “horrific attack.”

Leafs carry on home win streak

TORONTO—Curtis McElhinney was doing the usual work of a back-up goalie at the end of the Toronto Maple Leafs' bench midway through the second period last night.

Moments later, and to almost everyone's surprise, he was in the middle of the action.

“I'm sitting there [charting] face-offs," McElhinney recalled. "Next thing you know, they're handing my gloves to me.”

Two-straight road wins for Jets

VANCOUVER—The Winnipeg Jets are finding their stride following a nightmarish start to the season.

Patrik Laine and Tyler Myers scored 3:13 apart late in the second period last night as Winnipeg doubled the Vancouver Canucks 4-2.

The Jets opened the schedule with an embarrassing 7-2 loss on home ice to the Toronto Maple Leafs before falling 6-3 in Calgary to the Flames.

Late field goal sinks Bombers

VANCOUVER—Ty Long was talking to his dad earlier this week about how quickly momentum can swing in the CFL.

The rookie kicker has another story to tell the next time they speak.

Long booted a 34-yard field goal with 52 seconds left as the B.C. Lions scored 18 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to earn a wild 45-42 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night.
