The Viral Roundup – Smoked By Montreal Edition

The Viral Roundup – Smoked By Montreal Edition
Montreal wins big at MSG but loses Price, Toronto tops King James and the Cavs and Baylor gets more bad news at quarterback. Here's the minty fresh world of sports you're waking up to on November 26, 2015.

Did You Hear?

A big 5-1 Habs win on the road should be a cause for celebration in Montreal, but the second period exit of Carey Price has fans biting their nails. It’s unclear what had the reigning MVP leaving the ice, although there will be no shortage of sleuths looking into the matter. Devante Smith-Pelly scored his second and third markers of the season and Tomas Plekanec provided three assists in the victory. Montreal’s W busts up New York’s nine game home winning streak. The Canadiens now reign as the franchise with the best record in the National Hockey League.

Before the UFC kicks off a massive December, there’s still one more card of note on the horizon for November. UFC Fight Night Seoul is the organization’s first proper card in South Korea and it features a headline welterweight tilt between former lightweight champ Benson Henderson and Jorge Masvidal. Henderson is pegged as a -260 favourite by oddsmakers. Get hyped for this UFC card by checking out this Henderson profile piece that’s bubbled up on YouTube.

 

Did You Know?

- Toronto went into Wednesday night’s hardwood action as a three point home favourite and exited with a 103-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kyle Lowry scored 27 for the Raps and DeMar DeRozan provided 20 points of his own in the win. LeBron James put 24 on the scoreboard for Cleveland in a losing cause. The Cavs haven’t seemed to click on the road this year going 3-4 away from home. Toronto will host another Raptors/Cavaliers showdown in February.

- Are Columbus considering parting ways with Ryan Johansen? The 23-year-old forward has been the subject of trade rumours of late with TSN reporting that the franchise is listening to offers for their young star. Johansen has been a bright spot for a CBJ outfit that’s seem some bleak times in the past few seasons and has racked up 16 points already this season.

- Baylor’s hopes of sneaking into the College Football Playoff have taken another big hit. Freshman QB Jarrett Stidham is done for the year after suffering a broken bone in his ankle in the Bears’ 45-35 win over Oklahoma State. Baylor, currently ranked #7 in the nation, will rely on sophomore Chris Johnson. Johnson was previously in the third spot on the Baylor pivot depth chart, but injuries to Stidham and original starter Seth Russell has plunked Johnson into this high profile substitute position. Baylor are currently a one-and-a-half point road favourite for their crucial Big 12 clash with TCU.
