Sports Quick Hits: November 22nd, 2021
🏒NHL: The Sens are back, alright!After postponing their last three games due to a COVID-19 outbreak, Ottawa will be returning to the ice against the Colorado Avalanche tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET. Given their rough 4-10-1 (wins, losses, overtime losses) start to the season, hopefully this one ain’t a heartache.
🏒Women’s hockey: Someone call Drake because the Premier Hockey Federation’s (PHF, formerly NWHL) Toronto Six have gone back-to-back. After Saturday’s 5–1 victory (in front of a sold out crowd!) against the Connecticut Whale, the Six struck again on Sunday in a 3–2 win to complete the weekend sweep.
- Moving along to international hockey, the third stop of the My Why Tour took place in Kingston on Sunday. While Canada was victorious in the first two games of the tour, Team USA took a 3–2 overtime win over Canada in the third.
⚽MLS: The Vancouver Whitecaps — Canada’s lone MLS team in the playoffs — were eliminated this weekend with a rough 3–1 loss to Sporting Kansas City. Womp.
🏎F1: The F1 season is going to come down to the wire, with Mercedes’ LewisHamilton notching another dominant win in Qatar yesterday. Following last week’s win in Brazil, Hamilton is now just eight points behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the overall standings with two races to go. The drama.
