The Missouri Tigers men’s basketball team is still firmly in the Associated Press Top 25 and ranked for the fifth straight week, though Mizzou did fall a tad after blowing a second-half lead in a loss at Mississippi State last week.
Mizzou came in at No. 17 in the weekly poll, down from 13th last week. The Tigers played only one game after their LSU game was postponed because of COVID-19 considerations. MU was supposed to play Tuesday against Vanderbilt, but that game was also pushed back as the Tigers are on pause until Wednesday.
The NHL’s return to play is officially a go. On Sunday afternoon, the league made a joint announcement with the players’ union stating that it will play a 56-game season starting Jan. 13, 2021. Obviously, that leaves very little time to kick things into gear and this will be far from a normal season…there are questions about how it’s all going to work and they don’t have all the answers just yet — the league is expected to reveal additional details in the coming days…
We’ve known for some time that the NHL would be looking to temporarily shake up the divisions for this upcoming season. That realignment comes as a method of limiting travel and ensuring that teams will not have to cross the United States-Canada border during the pandemic. As part of the changes, one division will be comprised entirely of the league’s Canadian teams.
Toronto Maple Leafs
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Columbus Blue Jackets
Detroit Red Wings
Tampa Bay Lightning
Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks
St. Louis Blues
Vegas Golden Knights
Every team will only play divisional games this season. Each team in the East, Central and West will play every other team in its division eight times, while the teams in the North division will play every other team in its division nine or 10 times.
In an effort to limit travel and potential COVID-19 exposure, teams will also often play several games in a row against a particular opponent.

THEY WILL BE WITHOUT VLADAMIR TARASENKO….
HE underwent his third surgery in 28 months back in August. While the Blues will be cautious with his return to the lineup, they’re optimistic that he’ll be ready to go at some point in February.
