Its not often teams buy into trends or history to dictate future performances; just because it happened once - or even twice - doesnt guarantee itll happen again. The Saskatchewan Roughriders however, are likely hoping a recent trend continues for the 2013 season. The past two Grey Cup hosts - the BC Lions in 2011 and Toronto Argonauts in 2012 - have gone on to win the game in front of the home crowd. The 101st Grey Cup will be played in Saskatchewan and the Roughriders will be hoping they dont break the recent trend for host teams. The Riders have stocked up for their inevitable run this year, but will have to find a way past some stiff competition in West Division. The BC Lions had the best regular season record last year and are the oddsmakers favourites to hoist the Grey Cup this year, while the Calgary Stampeders, last years West representative in the championship game, could be even better with a healthy Drew Tate in 2013. Even the Edmonton Eskimos, with new QB Mike Reilly, have hopes of competing this year. Heading East, the defending champion Toronto Argonauts have to be considered the pre-season favourites to advance to a second-straight Grey Cup, but its a fools game to ever count out Anthony Calvillo and the Montreal Alouettes. Chris Williams or not, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have the offence to make some noise so long as they can figure out their defence and get accustomed to playing in Guelph for the year. And if Buck Pierce can stay healthy, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers could have an outside shot as well. Your! Call: On the eve of the regular season opener, who is the favourite to win the 2013 Grey Cup?

Marie-Philip Poulin scored the winner on a power play at 8:10 of overtime for her second of the game. She had tied it up with 55 seconds remaining in regulation.

Canadas Brianne Jenner halved the deficit at 16:34 of the third with a shot that deflected off of U.S. defender Kacey Bellamys knee and over goalie Jesse Vetter. With Shannon Szabados pulled from Canadas net for an extra attacker, forward Kelli Stacks attempted empty-netter that would have sealed the gold for the Americans hit the post. In overtime, Canadian deefender Catherine Ward was serving a cross-checking minor and American forward Jocelyne Lamoureux a slashing minor when Canadas Hayley Wickenheiser took off on a breakaway.dddddddddddd She was hauled down by Hilary Knight and Poulin scored on the ensuing four-on-three.
