What Did You Miss on Saturday?

--The small town of Lafleche (pop 406) is hoping to be Kraft Hockeyville.  The town, near Gravelbourg, in Saskatchewan's southwest is one of four finalists. Voting goes on March 31.  Winning the distinction of Kraft Hockeyville would give Lafleche 100,000 dollars for arena upgrades and the opportunity to host an NHL pre-season game.

--The WHL regular season is over for the Regina Pats. Tyler Steenburgen's 47th goal of the year in overtime gave Swift Current a 3-2 win over Regina ending a seven-game win streak.  Regina ends the year with a record of 40-25-6-1. They will be back in Swift Current Friday for Game 1 of their WHL Eastern Conference first round series.  The Moose Jaw Warriors were beaten 5-4 in a shootout by Brandon.  The Warriors will play Prince Albert in Round 1 with the Wheat Kings going to Medicine Hat

--The Leafs beat the Canadiens 4-0 in Saturday NHL play. Montreal has been shut out a league leading 11 times this season. The win was Toronto's 12th straight at home this year which is a league high this season.

--The New York Jets shook up the top of the NFL draft on Saturday morning, completing a blockbuster trade with the Indianapolis Colts that will put them in better position to select a potential franchise quarterback.

The Jets moved up three spots to No. 3, while sending the No. 6 overall pick, two second-round choices this year (Nos. 37 and 49) and their second-rounder in 2019 to the Colts.

--Jennifer Jones opened up the World Women's Curling Championship with a pair of wins. Jones and her rink consisting of Kaitlyn Lawes, Jill Officer and Dawn McEwen defeated the Czechs 11-5 and Switzerland 10-5

I watched curling yesterday. Kaitlyn Lawes didn't look near as contented as she did while playing Mixed Doubles at the Olympics. Hmmmmm. Way to go John Morris.

Curling is not a sport! Its a lazy a** version of bowling. Bowling is truly athletic to play. Wonder when bowling will get Olympic games credited status? Hopefully soon. Its a very enduring game to play, you have to be world top athletic shape.
