Habs blanked by Bruins

MONTREAL—Carey Price didn't want to make excuses after an uninspiring performance by the Montreal Canadiens against a division rival.

The Boston Bruins blanked Montreal 4-0 last night on a 22-save effort by former Canadiens' goalie Jaroslav Halak.

With the win, Boston (18-12-4) leapfrogged the Canadiens (17-12-5) for the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

T'wolves romp over Kings

MINNEAPOLIS—Karl-Anthony Towns got the Minnesota Timberwolves started and then enjoyed watching rookie Josh Okogie and the bench deliver the big blow.

Towns had 14 points and 14 assists in just 21 minutes, and Andrew Wiggins scored 17, as the Timberwolves beat the road-weary Sacramento Kings 132-105 last night.

Jets pull out OT win

WINNIPEG—Mark Scheifele was in a joking mood after setting up the tying goal and then scoring the winner 4:18 into overtime as the Winnipeg Jets topped the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning 5-4 last night.

Scheifele was asked how he was feeling about his scoring touch of late, which includes a five-game point streak of five goals and nine assists.

OAKLAND, Calif.—Minus their top player and with their coach still mourning his mother's death two days earlier, the Toronto Raptors put an emphatic stamp on a season sweep of Golden State.

They did it with the two-time defending NBA champion Warriors nearly at full strength, too—a very different scenario from when the teams played in Toronto less than two weeks ago.
