A light night in N-H-L action, Roberto Luongo made his first start in eight games, and he held the fort during a difficult first period as the Vancouver Canucks beat Calgary 5-1. They were the only Canadian teams on the ice last night.
Elsewhere, Colorado doubled Detroit 4-2 and Minnesota beat Anaheim 5-3.
The Georgian Bay Mid-Ontario Junior ‘C’ all-stars were out in full force yesterday in Hanover against the Western Junior ‘C’ league. In the Prospects game, Georgian Mid-Ontario defeated Western 7-4, and walked away with a 5-2 victory in the all-star game afterwards. As a result of the game, the winner of the Georgian Mid-Ontario Junior ‘C’ Playoff title will have home ice against the Western Junior ‘C’ Champions in the O-H-A Quarterfinals.
In N-F-L action, Green Bay continued its perfect season with a 38-35 win over the New York Giants that helped the 12-and-0 Packers clinch a playoff spot along with the N-F-C North title. The division title didn't come until a few hours later, when division rival Detroit lost 31-17 at New Orleans.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers were actually the first team to clinch a division title in a 26-nothing win over St. Louis. And, the Denver Broncos won their fifth in a row, 35-32 at Minnesota.
Expectations will likely be soaring next year now that Tiger Woods has ended a two-year victory drought. Woods birdied the last two holes to defeat Zach Johnson by one shot at the Chevron World Challenge in California. Woods doesn't play his next tournament until the end of January in Abu Dhabi.
