CLEVELAND - LeBron James has a blunt assessment for where the Cavaliers stand after 12 games.

"We're a very fragile team right now, we were a fragile team from the beginning," James said after Cleveland squandered an early 18-point lead and lost 110-93 to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday for its fourth straight loss. "Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up."

Cherry: Leafs will "pay the price" for not saluting fans after Thursday's win
The Canadian Press

TORONTO - Don Cherry says he can't believe the Toronto Maple Leafs would be "dumb enough" to not salute fans at Air Canada Centre following their win on Thursday.

The Leafs, who broke an ugly three-game losing streak by downing the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2, didn't raise their sticks to the crowd as they left the ice — a move the popular hockey commentator called "unbelievable" during his Coach's Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday.

BOSTON - Montreal winger Max Pacioretty had a simple explanation for why the Canadiens have had so much success lately against the Boston Bruins.

The Canadiens improved to 9-1 in their last 10 regular-season games against the Bruins. That doesn't include ousting them from last year's Stanley Cup playoffs.

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Roman Polak left Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings after suffering a lower-body injury and will not return.

Tatar got up first while Polak stayed down on the ice in pain.

Stamps look to get over division final hump

Stampeders put successful season to the test in division final against Eskimos
Donna Spencer, The Canadian Press

CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders' regular-season record in seven seasons under head coach and general manager John Hufnagel is 88-37-1 for a winning percentage of almost 70.

They've posted the best record in the CFL or tied for it five times.

Calgary's playoff record to date is 5-5, which includes its Grey Cup victory in 2008.

Upset losses in the West Division final to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2010 and 2013 — when Calgary's records were 13-5 and 14-4 respectively — kept the Stampeders from backing up dominant regular seasons with a championship.
