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.

DeMar DeRozan scored 23 for the Raptors, who have not won back-to-back games since road wins over Phoenix and Utah on Jan. 24 and 25. Toronto has gone 6-13 since. 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.

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.

BOSTON - The 76ers endured a 26-game losing streak and tied the longest skid in major professional sports history. They have lost 28 of their last 29 games. However, the tanking Sixers (16-59) remain a long shot to finish with the NBA's worst record. The Milwaukee Bucks have all but locked up the best chance for the top pick in the draft lottery. Milwaukee (14-61) has a two-loss cushion over the Sixers with seven games remaining. And the Bucks will be hard-pressed to win two of those games.

It appears Ervin Santana's willingness to lower his asking price has pushed him closer to signing with a new team, and it seems the Blue Jays and Orioles are the favorites to land the veteran righty. ESPN Deportes reported Saturday that Santana, the top remaining free-agent pitcher on the market, has agreed to a one-year deal worth about $14 million with Toronto. The Baltimore Sun said Santana has received similar offers from the Blue Jays and Orioles, with Toronto's proposal considered more attractive.

TORONTO - Life is good for former Flyer James van Riemsdyk. He loves playing in the "fishbowl" - his word - of Toronto. Fact is, he is thriving in it. The 24-year-old Maple Leafs left winger, acquired for defenseman Luke Schenn in 2012, has set career highs in goals (26) and assists (26) and has been a part of one of the NHL's most dynamic lines, with center Tyler Bozak and explosive right winger Phil Kessel. "It's always a challenge and always makes it a little more fun against a team you have history with," van Riemsdyk said after the morning skate and before Saturday's game against the Flyers.

TORONTO - Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen has been in the NHL for 15 seasons, but he had never scored against Toronto. Until Saturday night. Timonen, who will turn 39 later this month, scored two goals to dramatically tie the score at 2, but it wasn't enough. Former Flyer Joffrey Lupul won it with 2 minutes, 39 seconds left in overtime, tapping in Dion Phaneuf's pass to give Toronto a riveting, 4-3 victory at the Air Canada Centre. The Flyers, who nearly earned their 12th win after trailing in the third period this season, salvaged a point and are on a 3-0-1 run. "The point is huge.

There is nothing that energizes a soccer team more than a keeper figuratively standing on his head, making one big save after another. That was the situation last Friday when Zac MacMath had his best Major League Soccer game of the season - and possibly his career - in a 1-0 win at Sporting Kansas City. Don't take our word for it, just listen to Conor Casey, who scored the game's lone goal to snap a five-game winless streak and suddenly put the Union in control of their own postseason destiny with four games left.

The Flyers generated a lot more scoring chances than Toronto in their season opener Wednesday, but they didn't supply the finishing touches and dropped a 3-1 decision. The Flyers fired 73 shots (32 on goal), compared with Toronto's 42 (25 on goal). "We did have the opportunities, and we didn't get it to drop," coach Peter Laviolette said after Thursday's practice in Voorhees. "It's like pitching a two-run game or a one-run game in baseball and not winning the game. " The Flyers lost because Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier was outstanding, making 31 saves.

THE UNION has four games remaining. They currently are in possession of the last playoff spot in the MLS Eastern Conference. Both the Columbus Crew and New England Revolution are nipping at their heels for the spot, which is why the team knows the importance of the final stretch. Manager John Hackworth has his own formula for what he believes will get the Union into the playoffs. He believes that after their upset win last week over Sporting Kansas City, they need six or seven points over their next four games to secure a spot.
