Both semi-final games begin at 10am.


Yanni Gourde scored his sixth goal of the season 49 seconds into the Seattle Kraken’s 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers. Colin Blackwell and Alex Wennberg scored less than two minutes apart in the second period, helping the expansion team win for the fifth time in seven games. Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl scored his league-high 21st goal of the season in the first period.

The Calgary Flames extended their road point streak to eight games with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk scored in the shootout after Sean Monahan furnished a goal and an assist.

Mark Scheifele had a hat trick to snap a personal seven-game goalless skid and lead the Winnipeg Jets to an 8-4 victory over New Jersey. Nikolaj Ehlers also broke out of a five-game goalless streak with two of his own for Winnipeg. Kristian Vesalainen, Josh Morrissey and Adam Lowry also scored for the Jets.

The Phoenix Suns’ team-record winning streak has ended at 18 games. Steph Curry scored 23 points as the Golden State Warriors ripped the Suns, 118-96. Three days after going 4 of 21 in a 104-96 loss in Phoenix, Curry shot 8 of 20 with six 3s, five rebounds and five assists.

The Seattle Seahawks could elevate Adrian Peterson from the practice squad to play against San Francisco on Sunday. Peterson was signed this week by the Seahawks due to concerns about depth at running back.

Vice-skip Darren Moulding has left the curling rink led by Brendan Bottcher. Team Bottcher announced the change in a statement posted to Twitter. The rink says Moulding is taking time away from curling for personal reasons and that it would announce a new player at a later date. Moulding disputed the statement in his own tweet saying people “might have ask whose ‘personal reasons’ those are.”
