'Genie' goes on bet date

NEW YORK—Eugenie Bouchard is not one to welch on a bet.

The tennis star from Westmount, Que. went on a date with New England Patriots' fan John Goehrke last night after the two agreed to a bet over Twitter during Super Bowl 51.

Bouchard had tweeted that she “knew Atlanta would win” with the Falcons holding a big lead over the Patriots during the NFL's championship game.

Sanchez set to lead Jays' rotation

DUNEDIN, Fla.—Aaron Sanchez came into spring training this year with a different mentality than in the past.

For the first time in his major-league career, the 24-year-old right-hander doesn't have to prove he's worthy of a spot in the Blue Jays' starting rotation after his dominant season last year.

And he's using that lack of pressure to sharpen his arsenal.

Jackets dump Leafs

COLUMBUS, Ohio—Joonas Korpisalo has been shuttled between Columbus and the Blue Jackets' AHL affiliate in Cleveland quite a bit this season.

Maybe now, coach John Tortorella will let him stick around.

The back-up goalie made 31 saves, and Nick Foligno and Boone Jenner had a goal each, as the Blue Jackets dumped the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 last night.
