Wednesday Sports Notes

The Wheat Kings look to stave off elimination tonight in game four of the WHL's Eastern Conference Semi Final. Brandon trails the Edmonton Oil Kings three-games-to-none in the best-of-seven series following a 5-2 loss at home yesterday. If the Wheat Kings can force a fifth game in the series with a victory at Westman Place tonight, it'll happen Friday in Edmonton.

A five game evening in the NHL with the regular season continuing to wind down. The Montreal Canadiens -- Canada's only playoff-bound team -- travels to Chicago to face the Blackhawks. Also, Calgary hosts Los Angeles, Detroit is in Pittsburgh, Dallas entertains Columbus, San Jose visits Anaheim.

The owners of the Vancouver Canucks will hold a news conference today, where it's assumed they will name a new general manager and team president after firing Mike Gillis yesterday. Many have speculated that former Canucks captain Trevor Linden might be named the new GM.

Snowmelt has damaged the interior at Investors Group Field, the 208-million-dollar new home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Winnipeg Football Club says water has damaged suites and the visitor's dressing room. Stadium chairman Andrew Konowalchuk describes the water damage as an ongoing issue with the facility since it opened in June 2013. He says it won't impact any events scheduled at Investors Group Field, specifically the Canada versus USA women's soccer match on May 8th.

Brandon Morrow takes the mound as the Toronto Blue Jays host the Houston Astros. Toronto won the first game of the series 5-2. Morrow struggled in his first start of the season, giving up four runs in five innings and taking the loss last week against the Tampa Bay Rays. Houston counters with Lucas Harrell.
