The Stanley Cup is within the Canucks' reach as Game 6 of the series final goes tonight in Boston. Vancouver leads the series 3 games to 2 and can hoist its first trophy in franchise history with a victory at T-D Gardens. If necessary, a Game 7 would be Wednesday in Vancouver.
Vancouver defenceman Aaron Rome says he wouldn't change much about the hit on Boston's Nathan Horton that got him suspended for the rest of the Stanley Cup. Speaking for the first time about his suspension, Rome says the hit, which gave the Bruins forward a severe concussion, was barely illegal.
The Dallas Mavericks won their first N-B-A title after a 105-95 victory over the Miami Heat. Miami were the favourites in the championship series, which Dallas finished in 6 games.
In Major League Baseball, the Toronto Blue Jays wrapped up an embarrassing weekend series against the Boston Red Sox losing 14-1. The Jays’ lone run was scored by Jose Bautista who snapped a homerun drought with his 21st of the season. The Red Sox outscored Toronto 35-6 over the 3-game series.
Locally, the Barrie Baycats won easily over the Panthers in Kitchener yesterday 17-7. Adam Reynolds earned the win for the Baycats, going five innings and allowing all seven Kitchener runs, none earned, on only four hits. Up next for the Baycats is a trip to Brantford Thursday to visit the Red Sox.
