What: National Lacrosse League, Wings (5-10) at Toronto Rock (6-9) When: Saturday at 7 p.m. Where: Air Canada Centre, Toronto. Outlook: The Wings, winners of two straight, need a win to tie Toronto for the third and final playoff spot in the East Division. A loss to the Rock would eliminate the Wings from playoff contention. A victory would give them the tie-breaker over Toronto, should the teams end up tied for third place. The Wings and Rock have two games remaining after Saturday.

It's now or never for the Wings. With just three weeks left in the regular season, the Wings (5-10) are facing elimination from the National Lacrosse League playoffs Saturday when they visit the Toronto Rock (6-9) at the Air Canada Centre. "There is no question it is a playoff game," Wings coach Blane Harrison said. "We seem to have been in this situation since the last time we played Toronto in Philadelphia. If we play our game and stick to the things that we want to do, starting with an athletic defense, we can break some windows of our own. " The Rock have added incentive in that if they duplicate their win over the Wings from earlier this season - they routed them 20-10 at the Air Canada Centre on Feb. 7 - they can clinch a playoff berth.

Ron Francis said goodbye to Maple Leaf Gardens in his own special way, with a five-point performance. The 35-year-old native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, who grew up a Maple Leafs fan, had two goals and three assists in his final game at the 67-year-old arena as the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Maple Leafs last night, 6-5. It was the next-to-last NHL game to be played at Maple Leaf Gardens. The Maple Leafs will play their final game at the Gardens on Saturday against Chicago before opening their new Air Canada Centre on Feb. 20 against Montreal.

Praised for his work on the basketball court, Toronto Raptors head coach Butch Carter was fired yesterday for his actions off it. Raptors general manager Glen Grunwald commended Carter for his work in turning around the team but said ultimately the coach was paying the price for the cloud of controversy that has swirled around the team in recent months. There was no immediate word on Carter's successor. Carter's comments and actions have resulted in criticism from the team's veterans and perhaps cost the club a chance to re-sign coveted young forward Tracy McGrady.

TORONTO - The 76ers are saying Tony Wroten's return from a sprained right knee "is still a work in progress. " "He plays with such reckless abandon and that kamikaze-type of approach . . . that, especially with his style, you have to be careful," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre. "It's still being looked at and smarter people than me will come up with a decision really soon on what his best path is. " The reserve point guard missed the trip to Canada after spraining his right knee for the third time in less than two months.

TORONTO - Soon the creative ways to convey just how awful the 76ers' health has been this season will run out. Sunday night, the Sixers were again without post players Nerlens Noel and Malcolm Thomas in their 120-88 loss to the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre. This marked their worst loss since a 43-point defeat by the Golden State Warriors on Feb. 10. "That was not us," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "We came in here and we got manhandled. . . . We got jumped, and we didn't have any answers.

TORONTO - Scott Laughton stood alone during the national anthem at Air Canada Centre, spread out from the rest of his linemates, along the Flyers' blue line. Always serious and sincere by nature, his eyes were intently focused on the preseason task ahead. To his right, above the Flyers bench, a humongous Canadian flag spanning 15 rows of people was passed along the lower bowl. The familiar Maple Leaf flag probably passed not all that far from Laughton's parents and older brother, who made the quick, 35-minute drive from his hometown, the Toronto suburb of Oakville.

TORONTO - For the last five seasons, Flyers goaltending coach Jeff Reese has carefully tracked Steve Mason. Poring over hours of highlights, Reese broke down a good portion of Mason's starts with the Blue Jackets, beginning with his Calder Trophy season in 2008-09. Mason, 24, was acquired from Columbus before Wednesday's trade deadline in exchange for Michael Leighton and a third-round pick. Reese had a lot to do with that. Mason has fallen so far from that rookie of the year season that it's easy to forget that he was one of only five goalies invited to Canada's Olympic tryout camp in 2010, when he was 21. Martin Brodeur, Marc-Andre Fleury, Roberto Luongo and Cam Ward were the others, even leaving the Canadiens' Carey Price off the list.
