Broncos welcome Wheat Kings tonight

The Swift Current Broncos play one of only two Tuesday night home games this season when they host the Brandon Wheat Kings tonight at InnovationPlex. 

Swift Current is coming off an overtime win over Regina and a one-goal loss to Lethbridge on the weekend and have won six of their last ten games. Brandon, meanwhile, has only won once in their last eight games. The Broncos and Wheat Kings are currently tied for eighth in the WHL's Eastern Conference standings.

Tonight’s game is on the Eagle 94.1 FM with Living Sky Casino Broncos Hockey starting with the pre-game show at 6:30pm and the face-off at 7:00pm. 

Three other games in the WHL tonight have Moose Jaw hosting Prince Albert, Red Deer visiting Edmonton and Calgary continuing their U-S swing in Portland.

Flames hold off Kings in NHL action

The Calgary Flames held off a late rally by the Los Angeles Kings to win 6-5 at the Saddledome Monday night. Elias Lindholm had a goal and two assists for the Flames, who picked up their second win in a row and snapped the Kings’ four-game winning streak. In other NHL action, Noah Dobson had a goal and a helper as the New York Islanders doubled up the Ottawa Senators 4-2. 

The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to have Matt Murray back in net when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. Murray started the Leafs' season opener but hasn't played since then after suffering an adductor injury.

Meanwhile, the Montreal Canadiens are riding a three-game winning streak when they host the surging New Jersey Devils, who have won their last nine in a row, and the Vancouver Canucks look to end a three-game slide when they visit the Sabres in Buffalo.

Bo a no go for Riders

Any dreams of Bo Levi Mitchell coming to Riderville have been dashed after news on Monday that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats acquired the rights to the veteran quarterback from the Calgary Stampeders in exchange for draft picks.

The move is expected to give the Ti-Cats leverage in negotiating with the pending free agent as they look to load up for a Grey Cup run when Hamilton hosts the game next year.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders were touted to be a landing spot for Mitchell with Cody Fajardo appearing likely to hit the open market in February.

Preparations continue for Sunday's Grey Cup between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts at Regina's Mosaic Stadium. 

In the NFL on Monday night, Joey Slye nailed four field goals as the Washington Commanders knocked off Philadelphia 32-21 to hand the Eagles their first loss of the season.

Raptors depth players edge Pistons to snap losing skid

Dalano Banton scored a career-high 29 points and Chris Boucher added 20 more as the Toronto Raptors gutted out a 115-111 win over the Detroit Pistons. 

The Raptors, who were without stars Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Gary Trent and Precious Achiuwa due to illness or injury, snapped a three-game losing streak with the victory. 

Felix upsets Rafa at ATP Finals

Canada’s Felix Auger Aliassime knocked off the legendary Rafael Nadal at the ATP Finals in Turin, Italy this morning. The Montreal native won in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to pick up his first career win against the 22-time Grand Slam winner and first win in the round-robin tournament 

Felix, the first Canadian to qualify for this event since Milos Raonic in 2016, is now 1-1 after two matches while Nadal is 0-2.
