  1. I find it fascinating that none of the teams that set the regular season wins records in the NHL, NBA, NFL, or MLB went on to win their respective league championships that year:

     

    • 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings won 62 games and lost in the conference finals
    • 2015-16 Golden State Warriors won 73 games and lost in the NBA Finals
    • 2007 New England Patriots won 16 games and lost in the Super Bowl
    • 1906 Chicago Cubs won 116 games and lost in the World Series; 2001 Seattle Mariners won 116 games and lost in the ALCS

      Some close ones...

       

      The '72 Dolphins won every game that was available to them and won the Super Bowl.  Not their fault they had 2 fewer regular season games.

       

      The '76-'77 Canadiens only lost 8 games on an 80 game schedule (60 wins) and went on to win the Stanley Cup.

    Zverev has developed a bit of reputation as a grand slam underachiever. I'd say Raonic's 2nd biggest career win came against Wawrinka in the fourth round at the 2016 AO, who was also world #4 at the time but had won 2 grand slams up to that point.

    Zverev beat himself today but Raonic certainly helped him by continuously feeding him slice backhands and serve & volleys. Didn't allow him to get comfortable at all with his groundstrokes. Zverev actually seemed to play better after his racket massacre, but it was too late by that point.

    They're 10 points behind 3rd place Vegas with the same number of games played. I'd be pretty impressed if the Canucks could make up that deficit. Pushing for the 1st wild card spot is more realistic.

    Bertuzzi and Athanasiou apparently laughed at Roussel after his missed breakaway chance, so of course he scored the next shift: https://streamable.com/af29x

    Take note Matheson, this is what a real hockey player does after he delivers a dirty hit:

    Maybe because they're watching the game on Shaw's currently broken feed.

    *UPDATE* Elias Pettersson Has Slight MCL Sprain

    I've seen material that says anything from one to six weeks. Here's one that says a grade 1 sprain can heal in as little as one to three weeks: Pettersson will also have access to better rehabilitation resources than the average person, so it's entirely reasonable that one to two weeks is accurate. Of course, every injury is different so no one will really know until it plays itself out.

    Not the result she wanted, but by reaching the final, Andreescu will reach a career high ranking of 107.

    Toni Utunen | D

    One of six guys from last year's U18 gold-medal winning team to win gold with the U20 team. There's a calm presence to his game, which is probably why the coaches trusted him specifically to take on bigger minutes after Heinola was injured. Will be intriguing to see if he can add some offense to his game as he continues develop.
