Monday Sports Notes

R-A Dickey looks to start the Blue Jays season on a positive note when he takes the mound in Toronto's Major League Baseball season-opener this afternoon at Tampa Bay. Toronto began last season with so much hope after revamping its roster, but endured an injury-plagued campaign. The Jays wound up last in the division with just 74 wins.

A quiet Monday for local sports. The Dauphin Kings continue to await their opponent for the MJHL Championship Series. The Addison Division Final is going to a fifth game in Steinbach after the Pistons staved off elimination last night in Winnipeg against the Blues. Whoever wins the series will automatically punch their ticket to the Western Canada Cup because the Kings are the hosts. The MJHL Final is expected to begin later this week for the Dauphin Kings, but they won't start the series at home. The Addison Division has home ice this year.

They aren't mathematically eliminated just yet, but all of the remaining games for the Winnipeg Jets this season are must wins. Tonight the Jets play their second to last contest on a five game road trip as they visit Anaheim. They'll wrap the trip up Tuesday in Phoenix. Four other games on the ice in the NHL, Ottawa hosts Carolina, Florida is in New Jersey and Los Angeles entertains Minnesota.

The Buffalo Sabres have signed interim coach Ted Nolan to a three-year contract extension. The Sabres made the announcement via their Twitter account. Nolan took over the team in mid-November when he was hired on an interim basis to replace the fired Ron Rolston.

Calgary's Kevin Koe has improved to 4-1 at the world men's curling championship in Beijing after posting wins over Russia and the Czech Republic. With those decisions, Canada took sole possession of second place. Norway is atop the standings at 5-0.
