Sidney Crosby did a little bit of everything tonight at the World Cup of Hockey. He scored once and assisted on two others as Canada beat Russia 5-3 to advance to the tournament's best-of-three final. Brad Marchand scored twice for the Canadians with Corey Perry and John Tavares also chipping in. Carey Price made 31 saves for the win in net.


Jacob Trouba wants out of Winnipeg. The Jets defenceman has requested a trade from the team and doesn't plan to attend training camp. Trouba's agent cited Winnipeg's logjam of defenceman as one of the reasons for the request. The two sides have been working since May to facilitate a deal for Trouba's rights.


Jason Grilli got the Rogers Centre crowd fired up and Jose Bautista kept the party going Saturday afternoon. Bautista provided the offence with a three-run shot in the eighth inning as Toronto blanked the Yankees 3-0. Grilli snuffed out a threat in the top half of the inning by striking out pinch-hitter Billy Butler.


The Boston Red Sox are playoff bound. With the complicated math of baseball in the wild-card era, Boston clinched a post-season berth after beating the Rays 6-4. The Red Sox maintained a 5-and-a-half game lead over Toronto for the division title and ensured no worse than the A-L's second wild card. Dustin Pedroia hit his fourth career grand slam in the win.


Bo Levi Mitchell continues to get it done for the Stampeders. Both his personal unbeaten streak and Calgary's were extended to 12-straight games after a 36-34 win over the Blue Bombers. Mitchell is one game shy of the C-F-L unbeaten record held by former Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Warren Moon. Moon went 12-0-and-1 over two seasons in 1981-82.


Tyler Crapigna kicked a 29-yard field goal as time expired to give the Saskatchewan Roughriders a 20-18 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Mosaic Stadium.
