Defending Brier champion Brad Gushue gained an express ticket to Sunday night’s championship game with a 7-3 playoff win over Brendan Bottcher of Alberta. Bottcher, the tournament’s top seed, dropped to Sunday’s semifinal to face Saskatchewan’s Mike McEwen, who was a 6-5 winner over Manitoba’s Matt Dunstone. Gushue could become the first man to skip a team to six national titles.

Elias Pettersson, Nils Hoglander and Pius Suter each had a goal and assist as the Vancouver Canucks whipped the visiting Winnipeg Jets 5-0. Quinn Hughes contributed a pair of assists for the Western Conference-leading Canucks, who lost all-star netminder Thatcher Demko midway through the game with an undisclosed injury. J-T Miller and Phillip Di Giuseppe also scored for the Canucks.

Thomas Bordeleau scored two power-play goals as the San Jose Sharks defeated the visiting Ottawa Senators 2-1. The win snapped the Sharks’ nine-game losing skid. Tim Stutzle scored a power-play goal for the Senators, who lost their seventh straight. In Montreal, John Tavares’s goal at 13:14 of the third period snapped a 2-2 deadlock and lifted the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Portland Trail Blazers outscored the visiting Toronto Raptors 15-5 in overtime to record a 128-118 victory. Deandre Ayton led the Trail Blazers with 30 points and 19 rebounds. Dalano Banton chipped in with 25 points. Immanuel Quickley led the Raptors with 29 points, while Gary Trent Junior had 23 points.

Luka Doncic became the first N-B-A player to record six consecutive 30-point triple-doubles as the Dallas Mavericks pulled away in the second half and beat the Detroit Pistons 142-124. Doncic finished with 39 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, eclipsing Russell Westbrook’s mark of five straight 30-point triple-doubles. Cade Cunningham had 33 points for the Pistons, who have lost 10 of their past 12.

Alessandro Schopf connected for a goal in the 74th minute of a scoreless match and Ali Ahmed added one in the 86th minute as the visiting Vancouver Whitecaps beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 in Major League Soccer action at PayPal Park. The win improves the Whitecaps record to a win and draw in two regular-season games. San Jose has lost three in a row to start the season.
