TORONTO—The Toronto Argonauts might be finishing their CFL regular season but Aaron Maybin is just starting his.
The former NFL first-round pick will make his CFL debut at defensive end tonight when the Argos host the Montreal Alouettes.
Maybin, 25, signed with Toronto on Sunday and will don pads in his first regular-season contest since being released last November by the N.Y. Jets.
LOS ANGELES—The Clippers finished nine games ahead of second-place Golden State last season to win the franchise’s first division championship.
That margin would have been larger had the Warriors not beaten them three times.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.—With the Miami Dolphins needing any kind of score to end a four-game losing streak, two points were plenty.
Cameron Wake sacked Andy Dalton for a safety with 6:38 left in overtime as Miami edged the Cincinnati Bengals 22-20 last night.
BOSTON—On a night when the World Series trophy was carried onto the ice, the Bruins gave Boston sports fans one more reason to cheer.
Zdeno Chara scored the tying goal on a power play with under three minutes to go in regulation, and Jarome Iginla had the lone goal in a shootout, to rally the Bruins past the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 last night.
SAINT JO, Tex.—An off-road racing enthusiast has survived being struck by lightning twice during the same storm in North Texas.
Casey Wagner said Sunday that doctors told him a tingling feeling would last for about a week.
KTVT-TV reports Wagner was at an off-road competition in Saint Jo, 85 miles northwest of Dallas, when storms arrived.
TORONTO—On a whiteboard in the Toronto Raptors’ locker-room, someone had scribbled “81 more!”
The Raptors ushered in a new NBA season with a victory last night, but nearly squandered a 16-point lead before pulling away in the fourth quarter to beat the Boston Celtics 93-87.
Instead of celebrating their first win, they talked about the work there is to be done.
CALGARY—If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
That was the prevailing sentiment from the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, who in an increasingly familiar storyline, won 4-2 over the Calgary Flames despite being outshot by a wide margin.
BOSTON—The old ballpark was packed for a celebration nearly a century in the making.
Players danced around the infield with their families. Fans remained in the stands—savouring a long-awaited moment generations of New Englanders had never been able to witness.
Turmoil to triumph. Worst to first. A clincher at Fenway Park.
ST. LOUIS—Jon Lester pitched the Boston Red Sox within a whisker of yet another World Series championship.
Now this bearded band goes back to Fenway Park just one win away.
“Pretty special time,” Lester said.
MINNEAPOLIS—Aaron Rodgers has the Green Bay Packers rolling—even without three of his best receivers.
There’s a powerful running game on his side now, as if Rodgers needed any more help.
