TORONTO - DeMar DeRozan is feeling like himself again.

DeRozan scored 25 points with six rebounds and four assists as the Toronto Raptors held off a late charge by the Detroit Pistons for a 114-110 victory on Sunday.

DeRozan missed 21 games between Nov. 30 and Jan. 12 with a torn left adductor tendon. Although he'd played in six games before Sunday's win, he finally felt 100 per cent against the Pistons.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - By the time players finished scoring a record 29 goals at the NHL all-star game, they agreed that there was one loud, ear-piercing negative: the cannon at Nationwide Arena.

"I hate the cannon," Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux said.

Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo added that the cannon wasn't his favourite part of the weekend either.

Former skaters fondly remember Cranston

Former skaters fondly remember Toller Cranston as a "man of extremes"
Lori Ewing, The Canadian Press

KINGSTON, Ont. - At the 1976 Olympics, on the way to his bronze medal, Toller Cranston marched to the river and threw his skates in it.

Cranston had done poorly in the compulsory figures, and launched his skates in frustration.

"Then he turned and said 'I will never skate on those again,'" said Olympic teammate Debbi Wilkes, with a laugh.

"He was a man of extremes. Either totally into it, or totally out of it."

Toronto FC adds more marquee talent but says stability is key this season
Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press

TORONTO - As always, the one thing that never changes at Toronto FC is change. But the revolving door seems to be swinging a little slower going into the 2015 season.

Rather than radical surgery, head coach Greg Vanney and GM Tim Bezbatchenko have targeted key areas for improvement. And while there is more work to be done on defence, a franchise known for past failures looks like it will be worth watching this season.

This year is about executing their vision.

Giovinco is scheduled to arrive in July once his contract with Juventus expires. But there have been rumblings the Italian star could come sooner.

Three-time world champion Patrick Chan says he'd love to do another Olympics
Lori Ewing, The Canadian Press

KINGSTON, Ont. - Patrick Chan was a spectator at the Canadian championships this past week for the first time in his career, and noticed something funny from his vantage point in the stands at the Rogers K-Rock Centre.

People were talking during performances. Or tapping away on their cellphones.

The 24-year-old from Toronto is taking this season off to kick back and contemplate his future, and said the biggest thing he's learned thus far is perspective.
