--  There is Stanley Cup Hockey Playoff action tonight on Radio NL as we bring you live coverage of the Vancouver Canucks - Calgary Flames Best of 7 First Round Series. Game 3 is tonight. Game 4 is Tuesday, and both are at the Saddledome. Radio NL's coverage tonight and Tuesday begins at 6pm with the pre-game show followed by the opening faceoff at 7pm.

--  Ottawa has home-ice advantage as its first-round playoff series shifts back to the nation's capital. The Senators are down 2-0 against the Montreal Canadiens heading into Game 3. Ottawa coach Dave Cameron hasn't said yet whether Andrew Hammond or Craig Anderson will start in net. Hammond started the first two games of the series.

--  Elsewhere in NHL playoff action today, the Washington Capitals look to build on their Game 2 victory when they face the New York Islanders in Game 3 at Nassau Coliseum. In Chicago, the Blackhawks will start rookie Scott Darling in net when they host the Nashville Predators. That series is tied at one.

--  Calgary head coach Bob Hartley pocketbook is a little lighter. The NHL fined Hartley 50-thousand dollars U.S. for his responsibility in an incident late in Calgary's 4-1 playoff loss to the Vancouver Canucks Friday night. The altercation with just over a minute remaining resulted in 132 penalty minutes and six game misconducts.

--  The Connor McDavid fever is about to hit Oil Country. Edmonton won the NHL Draft Lottery to earn the first-overall selection at the draft in June. The Oilers could select McDavid who is pegged as the best young talent to come along since Sidney Crosby. General manager Craig MacTavish says there is zero chance Edmonton trades the pick.

--  A rocky start to the playoffs for the Toronto Raptors. Despite overcoming a large deficit, they fell 93-86 in Game 1 against the Washington Wizards. Paul Pierce had 20 points for the Wizards. Washington outscored the Raptors 11-4 in extra time. Amir Johnson led Toronto with 18 points.

--  The Blue Jays are back on track. Toronto used a walkoff home run from Josh Donaldson to edge the Atlanta Braves 6-5 in 10 innings. It was Donaldson's third homer in two days. The final game of the interleague series wraps up this afternoon. Daniel Norris goes to the mound for the Jays. Shelby Miller counters for Atlanta.

--  The TRU WolfPack split a doubleheader Saturday. In the first game, the WolfPack dropped a 5-4 decision to the Okanagan College Coyotes. TRU ended the night with an exciting 8-7 walk-off win against the Vancouver Island Mariners. TRU is back on the field at NorBrock Stadium today for two games. They face the Vancouver Island Mariners at 10 this morning, before taking on the Okanagan Coyotes at 4pm.

--  The Kamloops  RiverDogs will  be on the road  for their  next  action  in the B.C. Midget Baseball League next week.
