NATIONAL SPORTS

A six-game losing streak has come to an end for the Vancouver Canucks. Quinn Hughes, Tyler Myers and Brandon Sutter each scored one goal in a 3-1 Vancouver Canucks win over the Calgary Flames last night. This comes after owner Francesco Aquillini took to Twitter to voice his disappointment over his team’s start. But he says he doesn’t plan on making changes.


The Montreal Canadiens needed two third period goals to edge their rival Toronto Maple Leafs. Tyler Toffoli and Brendan Gallagher each scored in the final frame to give their team a win. Mitch Marner scored the only goal for Toronto.


Brady Tkachuk scored the game-winning goal for the Ottawa Senators in the dying seconds of a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. Tkachuk’s goal came with a little over eight seconds to play. Evgenii Dadonov also scored for Ottawa. Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets.


A heartbreaking way to go out for Felix Auger-Aliassime. The 20-year-old Montrealer lost to Russian qualifier Aslan Karatsev in five sets in his fourth-round match at the Australian Open. Auger-Aliassime had a two sets-to-none advantage before the Russian came back and won the match.


Canadian Rebecca Marino defeated German Mona Barthel in the Phillip Island Trophy’s opening round match earlier today. Marino hit eight aces through two sets and won nearly 78 per cent of her first service points while defeating the German in 57 minutes. Last week, Marino won in her first Grand Slam match since 2013.


Canadian James Paxton is returning to Seattle. The Ladner, B-C native has reportedly signed a one-year, eight point five million dollars. Paxton spent the last two seasons with the New York Yankees but missed time during the 2020 season due to injury. He has a lifetime record of 57-33 with a 3.58 E-R-A.
