Toronto is about to finally pull back the curtains on the first NBA all-star game ever to be played outside of the United States—an idea that had its beginnings with a pencil and a blank sheet of paper more than 20 years ago.

EDMONTON—Connor McDavid continues to show why he has been labelled as a potential generational talent.
McDavid had two goals and three assists as the Edmonton Oilers came away with a 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs yesterday in a battle between the NHL’s two lowest-ranked teams.
“We needed this,” McDavid said.
OTTAWA—Lebanon and Jordan are at a critical “tipping point” and need more Canadian help in order to survive the pressure of the Syrian civil war, says Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—When Andre Drummond’s shot from about 80 feet dropped straight through the net to end the third quarter, Toronto’s lead was down to five points and it looked like this game against the Detroit Pistons might come down to the wire.
Instead, Kyle Lowry and the Raptors put it out of reach pretty quickly.
OTTAWA—For the first time in a long time, the Ottawa Senators are feeling good about themselves.
The Senators beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 last night, with Mark Stone leading the way with two goals and an assist.
Stone now has five goals and three assists in his past four games after having gone eight-straight without a point.
ST. LOUIS—“Big Buff” is off the NHL free-agent market.
NHL teams looking to add a rental defenceman before the trade deadline will have to look elsewhere as the Winnipeg Jets signed Dustin Byfuglien to a five-year, $38 million (U.S.) extension.
Carolina and New England are the early favourites at Nevada sportsbooks to win the 2017 Super Bowl, followed by the Seahawks, Packers and Steelers.
The Panthers were listed Monday at 7-1 and the Patriots 8-1 at the William Hill Race & Sports Book, while Pregame.com set the line for New England at 9-1 and Carolina 10-1.
SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Peyton Manning gave himself a chance to have “Super” ending to his career, and Von Miller and the Denver defence made the plays to secure the title for the Broncos.
Manning and Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton were harassed all game yesterday, but the Broncos made enough big plays for the 24-10 victory—Manning’s 200th and perhaps his last before retirement.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. Peyton Manning gave himself a chance to have a Super ending to his career. Von Miller and the Denver defence made the plays to secure the title for the Broncos.
Manning and Panthers quarterback Cam Newton were harassed all game Sunday, and the Broncos made enough big plays for the 24-10 victory, Manning’s 200th and perhaps his last before retirement.
TORONTO—Moments after his 1,000th NHL game and 546th win, Maple Leafs’ coach Mike Babcock laid out his long-range blueprint.
Asked if he had another 1,000 games in him, Babcock cited his contract with Toronto.
“Well, I’ve got this year and seven more here,” he noted.
“And then I’m going to stay for two more because the team’s going to be that good.”
