SUNDAY SPORTS

The Regina Pats broke out of their slump in a big way, pasting the Wheat Kings in Brandon 7-3 Saturday night.  Braden Christopher and Lane Scheidl led the way with a pair of goals each for the Queen City Kids while Dyson Stevenson, Morgan Klimchuk and Adam Brooks added singles.  Matt Hewitt picked up the win in the Pats' net.  Regina (20-30-6) hosts the Medicine Hat Tigers Tuesday night at 7 pm on 620 CKRM.

Henrik Sedin is a point away from making history in Vancouver. The Canucks captain had two assists in a 5-1 win over Calgary. That gives Sedin 755 career points, just one behind former Vancouver captain Markus Naslund for the franchise-best mark. Sedin has no goals and eight assists so far this season.

---

The Toronto Maple Leafs won a chippy game in Montreal. Leo Komarov scored in the opening minute of the game and the rout was on from there as the Leafs beat the Canadiens 6-0. The third period was a mess with more fighting than hockey.

---

Al Montoya stepped in for a sick Ondrej Pavelec to help the Winnipeg Jets get a little revenge against Ottawa. Montoya made 33 saves in a 1-0 victory over the Senators. The Jets had previously lost their season opener at home to Ottawa last month. In Detroit, Niklas Kronwall scored to give the Red Wings a 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

---

Ryan Miller made 41 saves and Alexander Sulzer scored the decisive goal as the Buffalo Sabres beat the New York Islanders 3-2. Elsewhere in the NHL, the Washington Capitals cruised to a rare 5-0 victory over the Florida Panthers. Phoenix shut out San Jose 1-0, Philadelphia edged Carolina 4-3 and New Jersey defeated Pittsburgh 3-1.

---

The Denver Nuggets are on a nine-game winning streak. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points as the Nuggets beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 111-103. The loss ended the Cavs' three-game winning streak. Cleveland hasn't won four in a row since 2010 when they still had LeBron James.

Manitoba's Matt Dunstone has captured the Canadian junior men's curling championship. Dunstone won gold with a 4-3 victory over Alberta's Thomas Scoffin. It's the first time Manitoba has won gold since 2002. Manitoba has a shot at double gold with Shannon Birchard competing in the women's playoffs tomorrow.

---

The new managers of the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC made their debuts in an exhibition tournament ahead of the MLS season. Marco Schallibaum was a victor in his first appearance as Montreal beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1. Ryan Nelsen wasn't so lucky with TFC, which fell 1-nil to the Columbus Crew.

" GO PATS GO "

It's great to see the Pats get a win last night and finally stop the hemorrhaging. It would now be nice if they could win a couple home games for the fans. This season has been tough on everyone, including those who pay the freight.

Speaking of junior hockey, Saskatoon had a crowd of 12,500 for their game last night. Sure it was a special promo for the 25th anniversary but I don't remember the Pats getting a big crowd celebrating the Brandt Centre a few years ago.
I don't think the Pats could ever get that size of crowd even if they had as big a rink. Only way the Pats could pull that off would be an outdoor game at Taylor Field and it only would happen because of the novelty.

The third period of the Toronto/Montreal game was amazing. Good on Toronto for standing up for each other and giving those Habs the beating they deserve. This goes back to last year with Gionta running Reimer.

Loved Toronto feeding it to the Habs. They deserve everything they got and more. They should learn, if they want to run goalies (Gionta running Reimer last season), then it will come back to haunt them. Loved it!

Only way Pats could get a crowd like that (if they even had a stadium that large) would be new ownership.

Congrats to the Blades on getting a great crowd (with discount tickets, mind you) to celebrate the 25tj anniversary of CUC. I live in S'toon and there was an all-out media blitz last week to pack the arena. Wasn't SRO but 12,500 is great.

Too bad you can't just celebrate that without running down Pats fans at the same time.

I am loving it that the Leafs have not won a cup that I can recall in my lifetime and I am 45 yrs old

You do realize that Patrick Roy no longer plays for the Habs right?

What does anon #10's comment have to do with anything? We also realize that Sittler,LaFleur,Bower,Plante, Gilmour,Domi....don't still play either. Go Jets.

You do realize that your Patty Roy comment doesn't make much sense right?

The Eagles in Saskatoon were great!

Saskatoon is a better city than Regina, but Regina is narrowing the gap.

Well you can't top this one. We're the city that rhymes with fun.

The point is, your precious habs haven't won anything in 20 years. This is the year 2013. What have you done for me lately Montreal?

Who cares about the Montreal Canadians or the Toronto Maple Leafs (losers). The Detroit Red Wings are the only team anyone ever needs, join the fan club, cheer them on, watch them win another exciting Stanley Cup Championship, 2013, you'll be glad you did.

Let me guess...you're that guy who cheers for the New England Patriots, New York Yankees, and LA Lakers, and Detroit Red Wings?
