Surging Blues earn OT win over Leafs

TORONTO—Vladimir Tarasenko strode through the neutral zone, dipped around a Maple Leafs' forward, deked out another, and then fired a shot past Frederik Andersen to clinch another victory for the suddenly red-hot St. Louis Blues.

The Blues improved to 4-1-0 under new head coach Mike Yeo after edging the Leafs 2-1 in overtime at the Air Canada Centre last night.

Canada dominates super-G podium

Erik Guay phoned up the mountain to teammate Manuel Osborne-Paradis after laying down a winning time in the super-G at the world alpine ski championship yesteray.

His scouting report helped put two Canadian men on the world championship podium for the first time in the 44-year history of the biennial event.

At 35, Guay became the oldest skier to win a world alpine title.

Blackhawks pull out OT win against Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Sure, no game is a must-win this time of year.

Still, the Chicago Blackhawks couldn't afford to slip much further behind the Minnesota Wild.

Jonathan Toews scored a power-play goal 3:09 into overtime to lift the Blackhawks over the Western Conference-leading Wild 4-3 last night.

With the win, the Blackhawks closed within five points of Minnesota.

T'wolves stun Raptors

MINNEAPOLIS—That Andrew Wiggins came through with a huge night against his hometown team didn't come as a surprise.

That he did it with Lance Stephenson by his side certainly qualified as one.

Wiggins scored 31 points, and Tyus Jones hit a three-pointer with 19.5 seconds left, as the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Toronto Raptors 112-109 last night.
