Rangers nip Sabres

NEW YORK—J.T. Miller was in the perfect spot in front of the goal to take advantage of a rebound in overtime and keep the N.Y. Rangers perfect in four regular-season outdoor games.

Miller scored a power-play goal 2:43 into the extra period to lift the Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres yesterday in the NHL's 10th Winter Classic at Citi Field.

Vikings chasing first-round bye

MINNEAPOLIS—The Minnesota Vikings have won a whole bunch of games since their previous matchup with Chicago—a steady march to become NFC North champions that has put plenty of distance between the playoffs they're about to enter and that ugly first half they played against the Bears.

That's precisely where their path to the post-season began to straighten out.

Jets win the game but lose Scheifele

WINNIPEG—Concern and uncertainty clouded the Winnipeg Jets' celebration after a tough 4-3 victory over the surging Edmonton Oilers last night.

Mark Scheifele, Winnipeg's top-line centre and second-leading scorer behind linemate Blake Wheeler, left the game 7:37 into the second period after a hit by Oilers' defenceman Brandon Davidson sent him sliding hard into the boards.

Big run for Raptors goes all for nought

OKLAHOMA CITY—The Oklahoma City Thunder are having fun playing basketball—and that's translating into a long winning streak.

Paul George went 7-of-10 from three-point range, tying the Thunder record for “threes” in a game, and scored 33 points as Oklahoma City won its sixth-straight game with a 124-107 thumping of the Toronto Raptors last night.
