May 20, 2023 | Sports

The list of departed Toronto Maple Leafs executives is growing. Former Ottawa Senator Jason Spezza — who worked as a special assistant to Leafs G-M Kyle Dubas resigned from his role yesterday morning. It came before Toronto announced that Dubas had been fired.

Brett Howden scored from behind the net off Dallas Stars goalie Jake Oettinger 1:35 into overtime to give the Vegas Golden Knights a 4-3 victory in Game 1 of their Western Conference final. William Karlsson scored two goals for Vegas, giving him seven this postseason and extending his point streak to three games.

Jimmy Butler scored 27 points, hitting a pair of buckets to give the Heat the lead after they erased a double-digit, fourth-quarter deficit and Miami beat Boston 111-105 to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Toronto Blue Jays’ high powered offence has been sputtering against divisional rivals this week but management is preaching patience in the clubhouse and to media. Despite the appeals, Ryan Mountcastle’s three-run homer lifted the Baltimore Orioles over the Blue Jays 6-2 as Toronto lost its second straight and dropped into fourth in the American League East. The Blue Jays runs came from Danny Jansen’s RBI single and Bo Bichette’s groundout.

Aaron Judge is on seventh heaven. The slugger hit his seventh home run in seven games as the New York Yankees beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-2. The hit was his fifth homer in the last seven games. Anthony Rizzo also homered to help lift the Yankees to 9-3 in their last 12 games.
