What Did You Miss Sunday?

--The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League champs from Acadie-Bathurst are 2-0 at the Memorial Cup.  The Titan got two goals and two assists from Noah Dobson in an 8-6 win over Regina. The Pats trailed the game 7-2 in the third before staging a furious comeback that fell short.  Regina is now 1-1.  On Monday, the Swift Current Broncos meet the Hamilton Bulldogs in a battle of 1-1 teams. 

--The Vegas Golden Knights are off to the Stanley Cup final.  The first year team ended the dreams of the Winnipeg Jets with a 2-1 win.  Winnipeg native Ryan Reaves had the winner.  Tampa tries to join them in the final tonight as they lead Washington 3-2. 

--Sweden needed a shootout to beat Switzerland 3-2 to claim the World Hockey Championship. It's Sweden's 11th world title and their third in the last six years.  Canada lost the bronze medal game 4-1 to the United States. 

--Riders training camp is open as are all CFL training camps.  On the first day, Duron Carter held court.  He admitted being in legal trouble is somewhat worrisome and that he is done trying to change people's opinion about him.  Carter added he is also looking for a Humboldt Broncos jersey. 

--In the morning, the Atlanta Braves informed Jose Bautista his services were no longer needed after a 13 game comeback that saw him hit just .143 (5 for 35).  In the afternoon, the Braves were down by 5 going into the bottom of the 9th against Florida, but scored six in the 9th to beat the Marlins 10-9
