After a thrilling come-from-behind win over Russia in the gold medal game at the World Junior Championship, there were no shortage of heroes for Team Canada.
Captain Barrett Hayton certainly had a heroic performance, clearly playing in pain with what we later learned was a Grade I separated shoulder. That didn’t stop him from scoring the tying goal in the third period though.
Akil Thomas, a player who was rarely used in the game, scored the biggest goal of his young life. His game-winning goal gave Canada a 4-3 lead with under four minutes to play in the third period and will be replayed on TSN for years to come.
In any other year, Hayton and Thomas would be Canada’s heroes — and they still are. Just not quite as much as TSN’s centre ice camera.
With under two minutes to go and Canada already killing a penalty, things looked like they would go from bad to worse when Aidan Dudas cleared the puck over the glass from his own zone. It would have (and still probably should have) been called a penalty for delay of game. The linesman even signalled it a penalty.
But then it wasn’t, thanks to TSN’s well-placed centre ice camera.
Instead of Canada having to kill a second penalty, giving Russia a 6-on-3 advantage with their goalie pulled, none was called.
The referees appeared to reference a rule that states: “A player who lifts the puck from the defending zone and hits the scoreclock or any structural object above the ice surface, causing a stoppage of play, will not be assessed a penalty.”
Now, the difference there is if the scoreclock wasn’t present, the puck would be in play because it’s above the ice surface. The TSN camera was located just behind the glass, meaning that without its presence, the puck would still be out of play.
Canada got a huge break — the TSN turning point if you will — and everybody knew it. So Canadians did what we do best.
We said thanks, showing appreciation for the real MVP: the TSN camera.

Of course, it has long been said that, without TSN cameras, few would care about the World Juniors…..so, there’s that.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end has spent his entire 11-season career with the Bengals, but seemed to reach his breaking point with the franchise on Sunday.
<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="The Bengals lost a tight game to the rival Cleveland Browns as quarterback Baker Mayfield threw for five touchdowns against the Cincinnati defense.” data-reactid=”14″>The Bengals lost a tight game to the rival Cleveland Browns as quarterback Baker Mayfield threw for five touchdowns against the Cincinnati defense.
As time wound down, cameras caught Dunlap in a sideline argument with the coaching staff.
Dunlap: ‘I don’t got time for this’
Dunlap lost his starting job earlier this season and wrote, via Instagram on Saturday “I don’t got time for this” alongside a whiteboard image of the Bengals depth chart.
That post has since been removed.
House for sale in Cincinnati
The 31-year-old failed to record a tackle in Sunday’s loss. Immediately after the game, he announced on Twitter that his house is for sale. “Serious inquiries only.” They read:
~6000 sqft city view with huge balcony. 4 bedroom. 4.5 bathroom. In one of the best school districts for sale. Do your market analysis and make me offer. Serious inquiries only with proof of funds!
Owner is willing to sell furnished or unfurnished!
— Carlos Dunlap (@Carlos_Dunlap) October 25, 2020
The tweets have since been deleted.
The NFL trade deadline is Nov. 3. Dunlap is making clear that he wants to be a part of it.

Prediction: New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills NFL Picks 10/25/20 Odds – Sports Chat Place
Buffalo Bills (4-2) at New York Jets (0-6)
NFL Football: Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 1:00 pm (MetLife Stadium)
The Line: New York Jets +10 — Over/Under: 48
Click Here for the Latest Odds
The Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets meet in a week 7 AFC East division matchup in NFL action from MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills will try to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 26-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night football. In the loss to Kansas City, Josh Allen threw for 122 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception on 14 of 27 passing, by far his least productive passing game of the year as it was Allen’s first game without at least 24 pass completions. Allen also led the Bills with 42 rushing yards while Devin Singletary and Zack Moss combined for 42 rushing yards as well. Stefon Diggs led Buffalo’s receiving group with 6 grabs for 46 yards and a touchdown while Cole Beasley had 4 receptions for 45 yards and a score. On defense, Tremaine Edmunds led the Bills with 12 total tackles while Jordan Poyer had 10 total tackles with a team-high 9 solo tackles.
The New York Jets will look to pick up their first win of the season after falling to the Miami Dolphins by a final score of 24-0 last time out, stepping back to 0-6. Sam Darnold has thrown for 792 yards, 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions but is currently dealing with an injury, leaving Joe Flacco to throw for 397 yards, a touchdown and a pick on 51.9% passing. Frank Gore leads the Jets in rushing with 250 rushing yards while Jamison Crowder has a team-high 29 grabs on 48 targets for 383 yards and a pair of TDs. Braxton Berrios has 141 receiving yards with a. pair of TDs as well and Chris Hogan and Jeff Smith each have 100+ receiving yards for the Jets this season. Defensively, Neville Hewitt leads New York with 46 total tackles including 26 solo tackles while Avery Williamson has 27 solo tackles. Marcus Maye and Quinnen Williams each have a pair of sacks while Pierre Desir has 26 solo tackles with a team-high 3 interceptions and Brian Poole has a team-high 28 solo tackles with a pair of picks.
Buffalo is 1-3-1 Against the Spread in their last 5 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. New York is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 division games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get that the Bills are playing on a short week, but the New York Jets have been an absolute joke of a football team so far this season. I mean the majority of their losses have come by double-digits and the Jets aren’t just 0-6 SU, they’re 0-6 against the number as well this year. I just think things will get worse for the Jets before they get better, so I’ll lay the points with Buffalo on the road here by default.
Bills' Knox tests positive for COVID-19 – TSN
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss Sunday’s road game against the New York Jets.
The team said Saturday he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list along with three players in close contact with Knox — Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney (on the PUP list) and Nate Becker (on the practice squad). They, too, will miss the game.
This is the first positive coronavirus test for a Bills player since the season began. Each of Buffalo’s previous two games were moved from their initial dates because of the the outbreak in the Tennessee Titans organization.
The Bills will travel as scheduled Saturday afternoon and continue preparations for the Jets.
Buffalo has two remaining tight ends on its roster — Tyler Kroft and Reggie Gilliam.
Four players were promoted from the practice squad to the active roster — wide receiver Duke Williams, offensive lineman Jordan Devey, linebacker Andre Smith and cornerback Dane Jackson.
The team said backup linebacker Tyrel Dodson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve.
The Bills were previously affected by a string of false positive tests in late August. They sent their rookies home in late July to work remotely after five players tested positive.
