The Canadiens are on their bye week and return to action against when they host the Winnipeg Jets on February 18.

Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich 2017 online streaming

Although plenty would have sighed when Arsenal and Bayern were paired once again in the draw, there was a sense that this season represented a fine chance for the Gunners to finally get the better of the German champions over two legs. He's the record £42.5 million signing from Real Madrid, and a man whose absence - even if it was made for the right reasons - would spark headlines, especially if he was left out of such a high profile game against the best team in his home country.

Montreal Canadiens fire head coach Michel Therrien, hire Claude Julien

Hired as his replacement over 10 years ago? Julien, the B's all-time winningest coach and 2009 Jack Adams victor, had a 26-23-6 record with the Bruins this season.

Toure wants to give Manchester City fans more trophies

The action should be insane, so don't miss a single second of it! However, it must be noted that Chelsea have so far taken 60 from 25 - at a rate of 2.4 points per game which puts them on track to finish with 91. While Guardiola says he admires Aguero, he is not sure if he can give the Argentina global enough games to stop him leaving at the end of the season. Read More

Century mark: No. 1 UConn wins staggering 100th straight game

Magic Ship Serge Ibaka to Toronto for 1st Rounder

Magic Ship Serge Ibaka to Toronto for 1st Rounder

But with Coach Dwane Casey preferring to have Patterson come off the bench, that's left the Raptors with a rotating cast of bad players at the position as starters. That the Raptors jumped here, before the All-Star break, with the team struggling and its stars calling for help, is nice timing, too. There's also the fact that Ibaka and Lowry are both represented by Andy Miller, which makes their return as a package deal this summer (both are unrestricted free agents) easy to envision. Read More

Robert Saleh will be 49ers defensive coordinator

Saleh spent the last four seasons with Jacksonville working under recently fired coach Gus Bradley. Saleh also is familiar with the NFC West, having served as the Seattle Seahawks defensive quality control coach from 2011-13. Jacksonville operated in a 4-3 base defense last season, so it's feasible Saleh implements the same scheme with the 49ers this season.
