What Did You Miss on Sunday?

--We know the Pats and Broncos will finish off their best of 7 first round matchup tonight.  We also know now that Prince Albert and Moose Jaw will go the distance with Game 7 at Mosaic Place. Cole Fonstad's 2nd goal of the game at the 11:34 mark of the 3rd was the winner as the Raiders stayed alive for the second straight game with a 5-4 win.

--No surprise here.  Connor McDavid was named the NHL's first star of the month for March. All the Oilers superstar did was rack up 13 goals and 28 points in 16 games.  The 2nd and 3rd star were Brad Marchand and John Gibson.

-- Alexandre Ovechkin played in career game 1000 on Sunday versus Pittsburgh. In 13 seasons, Ovechkin has missed more than four games only once and never missed more than 10. Take out the eight games for suspensions and the Russian winger has only sat out for injury 21 times out of a possible 1,028.

-- The main event of UFC 223 is undergoing a radical change as UFC president Dana White announced Sunday that Tony Ferguson recently tore his LCL and has been pulled from the main event against Khabib Nurmagomedov. White has named featherweight champion Max Holloway as Ferguson's replacement for Saturday's blockbuster fight, which will be contested in Brooklyn, New York, for the official lightweight title.This marks the fourth time in the last two years that a fight between Ferguson and Nurmagomedov has been canceled for one reason or another.

This PA-MJ series should have been over already. The big high flying Warriors are falling apart just like last year. Without having Sawchenko stay as a 20 year old has hurt this team, along as their big boys not doing much in this series, except for Howden. PA has nothing to loose in game 7, if I was MJ I would be sweating bullets. I’m not from MJ or PA, but hope PA can pull off the biggest upset the CHL will likely see in these playoffs.
I hope the Pats can pull off the win in Swift, it’s going to be a battle. A Pats-PA playoff who would have thunk it? I have nothing bad to say about Swift, if they win they will likely win the East. They have a very high skilled talented team, but would like the Pats season to keep going. I don’t live in Regina, just been a pats fan for a number of years.
