The Dryden GM Ice Dogs won't be bringing home the Bill Salonen Cup this season. They've been eliminated from the SIJHL playoffs after a tough loss to the Red Lake Miners last night. The Dogs hosted the Miners in game six, but ultimately fell 5-1. Dryden came out third in the regular season with a 26-15-3 and 1 record. 

During Saturday's Hockey Night In Canada, residents were glued to their screens to find out if the Under 11 Kenora Thistles would be the winners of the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup. It was the U13 Lloydminister Blazers who ended up with the grand prize of $100,000. The Kenora Thistles entered the contest with the hopes of expanding the sledge hockey program. The team recently were the recipients of $2,000, which will go towards that initiative. 

Three Canadian N-H-L teams are in action tonight. The Pacific Division-leading Calgary Flames are in Chicago, the Ottawa Senators play the Kraken in Seattle and the Vancouver Canucks will be looking to keep their playoff hopes alive as they welcome the Dallas Stars. 

The Toronto Blue Jays have the day off as they travel to Boston for a three-game series with the Red Sox that begins tomorrow. Sadly, Jays broadcaster Buck Martinez won't be calling the game.

The Toronto Raptors will be looking to avoid sinking into an 0-and-2 hole when they resume their first-round series with the 76ers tonight in Philadelphia. The Raps got thumped in Game 1 Saturday, falling 131-111.
