Dota 2 publisher Valve released a new hero, Valora the Dawnbreaker, along with the 7.29 gameplay update last week. Dawnbreaker is a melee strength hero that can deal a lot of burst damage to enemies while healing and reinforcing her allies. In our reviewer's experience, she is best played in a core role, preferably as the safelane carry or the midlaner. Her primary contribution in fights is a ton of burst damage, both physical and magical, to a small area of enemies, though she also provides a considerable amount of healing and some crowd control. To find out what abilities to focus on and what items work well for Valora the Dawnbreaker, read our quick guide to playing the character here: Quick guide to playing Dawnbreaker For more on the 7.29 patch changes, read: Dota 2's 7.29 update adds new hero, reshapes the map, and more For more gaming news updates, visit https://yhoo.it/YahooGamingSEA

Sixty years after he became the first person in space, there are few figures more universally admired in Russia today than Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.
Winners of six consecutive games, the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs will look to extend their hot streak against the slumping Montreal Canadiens on Monday. The Leafs are 9-0-1 over their last 10 games and are one victory away from matching the franchise's longest winning streak since an eight-game run during the 2003-04 season. The last-place Ottawa Senators threatened to spoil Toronto's fun last Saturday, but the Leafs held on for a 6-5 victory thanks to another huge performance from Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner.
The Minnesota Wild will try to regain traction Monday night when they host the St. Louis Blues to complete a three-game set between the teams. The Blues defeated the Wild 9-1 Friday and 3-2 in overtime Saturday in St. Louis. The Wild got back into their tight-checking game Saturday but failed to hang onto a 2-1 lead in the final minute of regulation.
Russians on Monday celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight to space carried out by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin as the Soviet hero remains one of the most admired figures in the country.
There have been few causes for celebration this season for the Ottawa Senators, who sit at the bottom of the North Division standings. Connor Brown's franchise-record goal-scoring run is an exception. When the Senators host the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, Brown will look to extend his seven-game goal spree for a Senators team that is slogging through a four-game losing skid and have just one win in their last seven games (1-5-1).
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday’s series premiere of HBO’s “The Nevers.”) HBO’s “The Nevers” debuted Sunday with an episode that, in typical fantasy-series fashion, gave viewers many more questions than answers by its end. But not to worry, because Laura Donnelly, who stars on the Joss Whedon-created series as quick-fisted, future-seeing widow Amalia True, told TheWrap that all will be revealed in due time. Actually, she promised the biggest explainers will come by Episode 6, which is the end of Part 1 of Season 1 of “The Nevers,” though it wasn’t initially intended to serve as any kind of finale. (The pandemic determined that stopping point in production for the show, which also marks the last of the Whedon-crafted episodes, as he exited the show last fall and has since been replaced by new showrunner Philippa Goslett.) “I can tell you that it certainly all gets explained. But the question is, what am I allowed to tell you?” Donnelly told TheWrap. “When it comes to these spoilers, there is no point in me telling you what happens in Episode 6, right? That has to be experienced. But what I will say is that when I read Episode 6, it blew my mind. I think that whatever anybody thinks they know about this show come the end of Episode 5, that’s going to be completely turned on its head right from the start of Episode 6.” Also Read: 'The Nevers' Star Laura Donnelly Explains What a 'Never' Is - and Why It's Never Said in the Show OK, obviously readers have only seen through Episode 1 at this point, so that’s all still a ways off. But Donnelly did speak specifically to the mystery set up at the end of Sunday’s series premiere, which is how and why Amalia, her dear friend Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) and the rest of “The Touched” of Victorian England got their supernatural abilities during that strange event. And it’s why Amalia — who, just moments before that unidentified flying object sprinkled some kind of substance over London, was trying to drown herself in the River Thames — decided not to end her life once she was Touched. “With [Episode 6] comes all the answers about exactly what was going on with Amalia in that moment while she was in the Thames,” the “Outlander” alum said. “And yes, exactly in that moment she’s ‘touched’ and she comes back up from the water and into, essentially, a new life. It’s something that will be much better to be experienced than talking about it. So even for your sake, I don’t want to tell you.” Throughout “The Nevers” series premiere, we learn little bits and pieces about the mysterious Amalia, including that she is a widow. But that’s literally the only bit of information we get about her having a late husband, as he’s not mentioned directly at any point. Also Read: 'The Nevers' Star Laura Donnelly Was 'Gutted' by Joss Whedon's Exit: 'I Had a Wonderful Experience Working With Him' “Yeah, there’s a very good reason why we’re not talking about that,” Donnelly said. “Again, something that very much gets dealt with before the end of this first half of this season. The only thing I can say is that Penance knows everything. Penance is fully up to date with everything that Amalia has been through in her past and none of the rest of the Touched, none of the other orphans, know anything about that. So she doesn’t talk about any of it on purpose.” Amalia and Penance’s bond as the leaders of this outlier community is apparent from the first scene of “The Nevers,” even though their “mission” is not, adding one more question to the pile for viewers trying to dissect the show. But just so you know, Amalia and Penance don’t really know what they’re supposed to be doing yet either. “It’s really to do with a mission that Amalia is aware that she has, and that she’s essentially recruited Penance for,” Donnelly said. “She’s not entirely clear herself on what that is, but she does know that it means bringing everyone together, keeping them safe. As time goes on, that becomes more apparent. And as we watch the episodes, we learned what they’re being kept safe from and who the dangers are to them in society. This idea that they have to try to live in this society and be seen as equals, to have their voices heard — I think at the beginning and through the first half of this season, it is more of a protective role than a proactive one. That they don’t yet know why they need to go out there into the world do something, it’s more of a how do we exist in this world? How do we stay alive in this world? And that’s what Amalia and Penance are just trying to help them with.” “The Nevers” airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.

With an eye on the future, both the Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets continue to fight in the present. Both clubs are outside of the top four playoff spots in the Central Division, but Chicago sits fifth, just two points behind fourth-place Nashville. The seventh-place Blue Jackets are five points behind the Blackhawks.
Jayson Tatum tallied 28 points and 10 rebounds as the Boston Celtics snapped the Denver Nuggets' eight-game NBA winning streak with a 105-87 come-from-behind victory on Sunday.
The Utah Jazz continue to surge at Vivint Arena, where they have not lost a game since New Year's Eve. With Saturday's win over Sacramento the Jazz have now won 24 games in a row at home. Though the Washington Wizards enter Monday night's game in Salt Lake City near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings and not in a playoff position, they are one of the few teams in the NBA that have beaten the league-leading Jazz this season.
Thrilled Japanese fans welcomed Hideki Matsuyama's historic Masters victory on Monday, with broadcasters close to tears and the country's prime minister hailing the win as a bright spot during the pandemic.
One night after winning one statement game against the Utah Jazz, the Phoenix Suns stumbled in another, to the Los Angeles Clippers. Perhaps more integral to the Suns' climb into contention in the Western Conference is how they handle the vagaries of the NBA schedule. For every high-profile contest against the Jazz and Clippers, Phoenix has to maintain its consistency against the likes of the Washington Wizards, which Phoenix beat 134-106 Saturday, and Houston Rockets, whom the Suns will host Monday.
