For the first time since 2003 the Chicago Cubs will play in the National League Championship Series. Yesterday the Cubs won their divisional series against St. Louis three games to one with a 6-4 win. Meanwhile the other National League Divisional Series is going to a fifth and deciding game after L-A tied the series at two apiece with a 3-1 win over the New York Mets. The final game in that match-up goes tomorrow in Los Angeles.
Vancouver shutout the L-A Kings 3-0 in NHL action last night. Other Canadian teams in action saw Winnipeg defeat the New York Rangers 4-1, Montreal edged Pittsburgh, Edmonton dropped a 4-2 decision to Dallas and St. Louis picked up a 4-3 win over Calgary.
