Sports Roundup – August 2

Game 1 between the Jets and Flames went to Calgary. The Flames rode superior special teams to a 4-1 win over the demoralized Jets to start their qualifying-round series. Winnipeg forward Mark Scheifele left early in the first period favouring his left leg, and his team never bounced back.


Defenceman Jeff Petry scored the winner in overtime as the Canadiens beat the Penguins 3-2 in Game 1 of their qualifying series at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena. Montreal’s backbone Carey Price was at his best. He stopped 39-of-41 Pittsburgh shots.


The Oilers find themselves down against the Blackhawks despite home-ice advantage. Dominik Kubalik scored two goals and added three assists, leading Chicago to a 6-4 win over Edmonton at Rogers Place in the opener of their best-of-five qualifying round series.


Kyle Lowry poured in 33 points and a career-high 14 rebounds to lead the Raptors to a 107-92 victory over the L-A Lakers in their opening game of the N-B-A restart in the Disney bubble. Toronto’s O-G Anunoby had 23 points and was a perfect three for three from beyond the arc.


Aaron Judge homered for a career-high fourth straight game, and the New York Yankees extended their winning streak to five with a 5-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Gio Urshela was the difference for the Yankees as he hit his first big league grand slam.


Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the U-S Open because of concerns over COVID-19. Kyrgios said in an Instagram post that he had no problem with the United States Tennis Association proceeding with its plans to hold the tournament. But he cited health and safety concerns amid the pandemic as he joined fellow Australian Ash Barty in opting out of the Flushing Meadows Grand Slam.
