Wendel Clark's return to Toronto could hardly have been scripted better. In his first game since being reacquired by the Maple Leafs, Clark scored the first goal and added an assist last night in Toronto's 3-0 victory over the visiting Dallas Stars. The capacity crowd of 15,700 was chanting his name before and after the game, and Clark took a curtain call to a thunderous ovation as the game's No. 1 star. "This is a great bunch of fans here and I'm as happy or happier to see them I think than they are to see me," Clark said.

Canada's Jessica DiMauro and Andrew Slater reached the quarterfinals of the World's Open Mixed Doubles Squash Championship after a closely contested four-game match last night at the Cynwyd Club. The Toronto pair prevailed, 15-9, 7-15, 18-15, 15-14, over Liz Irving of Australia and Rob Hill, a former Princeton player. DiMauro, No. 1 on the Penn varsity, and Slater, a Cynwyd Club pro, rallied from 11-13 to gain a lead of two games to one in overtime. Their lead of 14-12 in the fourth game failed to stand up, and they were tied at 14. Slater gambled and declared "no set" for his team - he could have chosen a three-point playoff.

Alex Rodriguez will be easy to find between the Texas Rangers' three-game series in Toronto that begins tonight. "If you need me, I'll be in my room," Rodriguez said. The All-Star shortstop won't be alone at the team's hotel. "There won't be any going out to dinner or going to the mall this time," catcher Einar Diaz said. Texas players plan to take all necessary precautions during their trip to Toronto because of the dangers of SARS. The Canadian city is dealing with more than 250 cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome and 21 deaths.

Warriors beat up Wizards Monta Ellis scored 25 points and Klay Thompson added 18 to lead the Golden State Warriors in a 120-100 rout of the Wizards in Washington.

Toronto picked the right time for its first victory of the season over the San Jose Sharks. Mark Osborne scored a key shorthanded goal in the second period and the host Maple Leafs routed the Sharks last night, 5-1, to tie their Western Conference semifinal series at a game apiece. "We hadn't even had a lead in a game against them very often," Osborne said. "This was a confidence-booster for us. " Toronto beat San Jose for the first time in six games. The Maple Leafs were 0-2-2 against the Sharks during the regular season.

The 76ers won 54 games last season and came within a jump shot of reaching the playoff semifinals. They examined their personnel, then traded away three players and four draft choices, let three fringe guys drift overseas and let a veteran amble off into retirement. "I hated that," Wilt Chamberlain said yesterday. "When I was with the Lakers, we'd win, we'd change two guys and it could change the harmony, the cohesiveness. We weren't the same. "I think the Celtics proved it - you keep guys, teams together for as long as you can. " Maybe, at 50, Chamberlain can't make the moves he once could, but he still can make news.

Jose Calderon collected 18 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds to lead shorthanded Toronto over the visiting Houston Rockets, 103-96, on Sunday. Calderon started for the third consecutive game in place of Kyle Lowry, who has a tear in his right triceps. Andrea Bargnani also is out with a torn ligament in his right elbow. Calderon held Rockets guard Jeremy Lin to just seven points and two assists the day before Lin faces his former team, the New York Knicks, at Madison Square Garden.

There are few more predictable events than the day-before-the-series media gathering. Canned questions. Trite answers. Hear no evil, speak no evil - especially about your opponent. The Toronto Blue Jays were predictably boring on the eve of tonight's first game of the best-of-seven American League Championship Series (Channel 3, 8 o'clock), and spent the time dealing out the usual platitudes. The Oakland A's, however, were sort of like, well, the old Oakland Raiders. "It's been a team effort," Toronto manager Cito Gaston said when asked to describe how the Blue Jays came from behind to catch and pass the Baltimore Orioles in the stretch to win the Eastern Division.

The Union's offensive struggles continued Saturday, but it wasn't from a lack of chances. Maintaining possession for 65.6 percent of the game and applying plenty of late pressure wasn't enough for the Union in a 1-0 Major League Soccer loss to Toronto FC at PPL Park. All that pressure resulted in only one shot for the Union. "We haven't had the quality we would like on the final ball and the final run in the box to get on the end of something," Union coach Jim Curtin said. The Union (1-6-3)

This season has been one in which the 76ers are looking for keepers. Not surprisingly, there probably aren't a lot on the current roster who should seek long-term mortgages in Philadelphia. With nothing to lose except plenty of games, the last two seasons have been open auditions and as the team's 13-47 record attests, the casting call hasn't been stellar. One player who could fit in the Sixers' future plans, although the body of work consists of just four games, is 6-foot-10 forward Thomas Robinson.

FORMER TORONTO mayor Rob Ford is trying to cash in on the memoribilia market. Ford, who went on well-publicized drug- and alcohol-fueled binges while mayor, is auctioning off the NFL team logos tie he wore when he announced he had smoked crack cocaine in November of 2013. The tie is one of manny items he has posted on eBay. As of last night, the highest bid on the neckwear was $7,772.72 Canadian, or $6,223.15 in U.S. currency. A description of the tie on the website reads: "This is the original piece, not a reproduction - there is only one of these in existence.

TORONTO - The opening appeared, and Gerald Henderson was through it all night at the Air Canada Centre. It's been like that since the Episcopal Academy graduate hit the starting lineup for the Charlotte Hornets. An opening appeared, at midseason, and he's through it. Although Hornets point guard Kemba Walker had 29 points on Thursday, he said after Charlotte got past Toronto, 103-95: "Tonight, it was Gerald. He was unbelievable at the offensive end. " It's always been very tough to keep Henderson from getting to his spots.

TORONTO - The Flyers started an eight-game road trip with an inspiring comeback and their best offensive performance of the season Saturday night. Claude Giroux had two goals and a pair of assists, Jake Voracek dealt four assists and took over the NHL scoring lead, and the Flyers overcame an early 2-0 deficit and defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs, 7-4, at the Air Canada Centre. "It was fun because we were playing the right way the whole game, and we played 60 minutes," said Giroux, whose team had a 42-25 advantage in shots.

TORONTO - The infamous 1972-73 Sixers have company. For the second time in franchise history, the Sixers are winless through seven games. Two days after a one-basket loss to the Chicago Bulls, a trip across the border only amplified the 2014-15 Sixers' futility. The Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors walked all over the shorthanded Sixers last night en route to a 120-88 victory in front of 18,470 at the Air Canada Centre. The 32-point loss is the largest margin of defeat for this listless Sixers squad.

TORONTO - For most, Monday night would have induced a feeling of sheer panic. Jay Rosehill was left to sit in the stands in London, Ontario, for the Flyers' first preseason game. All he could do was watch as bearish newcomer Zack Stortini - a free-agent signee who is the same age, has 140 games more NHL experience and nearly double the penalty minutes - was given a solo shot to steal his meal ticket. Stortini, 29, took on two of Toronto's heavyweights, Frazer McLaren and Troy Bodie, and acquitted himself well.

TORONTO - Friday was Bill Murray Day at the Toronto Film Festival. There were free screenings of Stripes , Ghostbusters , and Groundhog Day . There were props, literal and figurative, for the honoree: adulation galore from Murray devotees, and a plastic gold crown and a red "Happy Bill Murray Day" sash that the actor was gracious enough, and clownish enough, to wear. And in the evening, a sellout crowd at the Princess of Wales Theater was treated to the world premiere of St. Vincent , in which Murray - "disagreeable and lovable at the same moment," per the film's director, Theodore Melfi - plays a hard-drinking, hard-smoking, hard-gambling misanthrope-turned-babysitter to his neighbor's kid.
