Corey Chamblin and the Saskatchewan Roughriders are heading into the CFL playoffs on a positive note.The defending Grey Cup champions capped the regular season with a 24-17 home win over Edmonton on Saturday night. The Eskimos had already secured second in the West but Saskatchewan clinched third with the victory, and more importantly snapped an ugly five-game losing streak.The Riders and Eskimos will get to do it all over again, this time at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday in the West semifinal. The winner will travel to Calgary to face the first-place Stampeders on Nov. 23.There are two sets of guys in the locker-room right now, Chamblin said. There is one set of guys who want to defend last years title and theres another set of guys who want this years title to be their first.Theres a healthy blend in there and Im really looking forward to getting back to the drawing board to get ready for another game that we know will be ready for us and that we will be ready for.The big question with the Riders is if incumbent Darian Durant will start Sunday? Durant suffered an elbow injury in a win against Winnipeg on Sept. 7 and recently returned to practice. Veteran Kerry Joseph was Saskatchewans starter in the victory over Edmonton.Edmonton won the season series 2-1.Also on Sunday, the Montreal Alouettes (9-9) will host B.C. (9-9) in the East Division semifinal. The Lions finished fourth in the West but secured the third Eastern playoff seed by posting a better record than the Toronto Argonauts (8-10).The Lions will attempt to become the fourth straight team to win the Grey Cup on home soil. B.C. and Montreal split their season series 1-1.The East Division semifinal winner will face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Tim Hortons Field on Nov. 23. The conference champions square off in the Grey Cup game Nov. 30 at B.C. Place.Ottawa (2-16) ended its inaugural season losing 23-5 in Toronto on Friday night. It was the fifth straight loss for the expansion Redblacks, who became just the third CFL club to suffer 16 losses in a season, joining the 88 Rough Riders and 97 Ticats.When Calgarys Jon Cornish takes to the field Nov. 23, he will do so with a third straight CFL rushing title under his belt. The Stampeders star ran for 1,082 yards despite playing in just nine games this season, becoming the leagues lone 1,000-yard rusher in 2014.Cornish, who averaged 7.8 yards per carry, had six 100-yard games this year and broke the 150-yard mark four times, including a season-high 174 yards against Toronto on Sept. 13. Cornish averaged 120.2 yards per contest, compared to the 114.7 yards Hall of Famer Mike Pringle averaged in 98 when he ran for a league-record 2,065 yards.Cornish joins a very select group of CFL players to have recorded at least three rushing titles. The others include Johnny Bright (57, 58, 59), George Reed (five straight from 1965-69) and Pringle (four consecutive 97-2000).Not surprisingly, Cornish has been nominated for the CFLs outstanding player and Canadian awards, honours he captured last season.But it was B.C. linebacker Solomon Elimimian who had a record-breaking campaign. Elimimian registered a league-record 143 tackles, 54 more than runner-up Bear Woods of Montreal. Elimimian was also the only CFL player to register more than 100 tackles this season.Despite missing Torontos season-ending win over Ottawa with a concussion, Argos quarterback Ricky Ray finished the season as the leagues top passer. Ray threw for 4,595 yards, the only player to crack the 4,000-yard plateau.Ray also led the CFL in touchdown passes (28) and was its most accurate starter (68.5 per cent).Adarius Bowman led the league in receiving (112 catches, 1,456 yards and six TDs) and yards from scrimmage (1,470). Bowman was one of just three players to surpass the 1,000-yard plateau, the others being Winnipegs Clarence Denmark (65 catches, 1,080 yards, three touchdowns) and Montreals Duron Carter (75 receptions, 1,030 yards, seven TDs).Saskatchewans John Chick led the CFL in sacks with 15. He anchored a Riders defence that posted a league-leading 61 sacks, six ahead of second-place Edmonton.Torontos Swayze Waters had two solid accomplishments. He finished the season as the CFL scoring leader with 192 points and connected on 47-of-52 field goals (90.4 per cent). Waters was also the leagues top punter with a 47.7-yard average.

. Golden States second straight road win wasnt painless. David Lee scored a season-high 29 points -- 13 in the fourth quarter -- and Nate Robinson added 17 points, leading the Warriors to a 105-95 win Tuesday night over the road-worn Cleveland Cavaliers.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Ottawa Senators continue a tough stretch before the Olympic break as they visit the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, one night after visiting the leaders of the Eastern Conference. The Senators lost for the fourth time in six games with Mondays 2-1 overtime setback to the Pittsburgh Penguins, though they were able to earn a point following a disappointing 6-3 loss in Toronto on Saturday. Craig Anderson made a season-high 46 saves, but was unable to stop James Neals shot at the 1:55 mark of overtime. Stephane Da Costa scored for the Senators, who had cruised to a 5-0 win on home ice against the Pens back on Dec. 23 and now sit three points behind Detroit for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. "We knew we had to come out hard after the second half of our game in Toronto, which was not up to our liking," said Anderson, who surpassed his previous season high of 35 saves last done on Jan. 30. "We needed to come back and have a good game, and we knew they would want to come back hard at us too after we beat them in our building." Things dont get easier tonight for the Senators as they visit a Blues club that is third overall in the Western Conference with 79 points, three back of the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks. Ottawa will visit the NHL basement-residing Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, but then visit the Atlantic Division-leading Boston Bruins on Saturday. After a heavy workload last night, Robin Lehner is likely to give Anderson a deserved break tonight. Lehner has faceed the Blues just once before, making 30 saves in a 3-2 overtime victory at home on Dec.dddddddddddd 16. The Senators snapped a two-game slide to the Blues and have won six of the last eight meetings. They will visit St. Louis for the first time since a 5-2 loss on Nov. 19, 2010. Defenseman Cody Ceci scored his first NHL goal in the matchup with the Blues and it was the game-winner in overtime. Chris Stewart scored twice for the Blues and Brian Elliott made 29 saves. Derek Roy added two assists for St. Louis and the Ottawa native has 14 goals and 39 points in 45 career games versus the Sens. Elliott made 28 saves as the Blues won the opener of a four-game homestand by besting the Nashville Predators 4-3 in a shootout on Saturday. Vladimir Tarasenko had a game-tying goal in the third period before notching the winner in the tiebreaker. "We needed this game after losing the last game," said Tarasenko, referring to a 3-1 setback in Carolina the previous night. He also had an assist versus the Predators. Jaden Schwartz and David Backers also lit the lamp for the Blues, who won for the fourth time in its last five games and moved to 20-5-2 at home this season. Jaroslav Halak will start tonight for St. Louis, which is 9-0-0 at home versus the Eastern Conference this season. Halak is 3-5-1 with a 2.76 goals against average in his career versus the Senators. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock is one win shy of 110 with the Blues, which would tie Scotty Bowman for fourth on the franchises all-time list.
