The 107th Grey Cup is set to kick off from Calgary tonight between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Ticats head into the C-F-L’s title game as four-point favourites. That’s not really a surprise considering Hamilton posted a league-best 15-3 regular-season record and swept the season series against the Bombers. Winnipeg is chasing their first Grey Cup title since 1990, while Hamilton hasn’t won a C-F-L championship in 20 years.

Last night in the N-H-L, the Toronto Maple Leafs won their second straight game with Sheldon Keefe behind the bench – defeating the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 in Denver. The New York Rangers overcame a four-goal deficit in Montreal to stun the Canadiens 6-5. In Winnipeg, Andrew Copp’s late-goal lifted the Jets to a 4-3 victory over the Blue Jackets. And Connor McDavid scored twice as Edmonton downed the Golden Knights 4-2 in Las Vegas.

Last night in the N-B-A, Pascal Siakam registered 34 points and VanVleet added 25 of his own, as the Raptors beat the Hawks 119-116 in Atlanta. Toronto will now travel home and prepare to face the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers on Monday. It will mark the first time the two teams meet since the Raptors knocked out the Sixers in last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinals.
