NATIONAL SPORTS

Tanner Pearson scored the game winner as the Vancouver Canucks edged the Ottawa Senators 4-2 last night. Braden Holtby put up another solid performance for Vancouver, stopping 26-of-28 shots, including a penalty attempt. The result snapped a three-game win streak for Ottawa, who remain at the bottom of the all-Canadian North Division.


Forty-one-year-old Joe Thornton set a Toronto Maple Leafs franchise record in the team’s 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets last night. Thornton became the oldest player to ever score in a Toronto jersey. He broke the previous record set by Allan Stanley in 1967.


Canada’s Rachel Homan advanced to the final of the Princess Auto Players’ Championship with a 5-3 win over Switzerland’s Silvana Tirinzoni in the semifinals. Homan also beat Tirinzoni in the Humpty’s Champions Cup final in the same venue last week. She will now face Kerri Einarson of Gimli, Manitoba, in today’s women’s final.


Athletics Canada will not send a team to the World Athletics Relays next month in Poland because of COVID-19 concerns. The organization says the decision to skip the key Olympic qualifier was made in light of the COVID-19 situation in Poland, Canada and around the world.


The newcomers in Major League Soccer are off and running. In their second-ever M-L-S game, Austin FC earned a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over the Colorado Rapids last night. Diego Fagundez scored the franchise’s first goal in the 60th minute. Cecilio Dominguez added a pair of his own in the 67th and 71st.
