MISSISSAUGA, ONT. - It wasn't clean, but Patrick Chan is still the Canadian king.

The two-time world figure skating champ won his sixth straight national title –- tying Toller Cranston for third-longest run all-time -- with a 273.75 total score Saturday night at the Hershey Centre.

But everyone is still waiting for a season-defining performance from Chan and there are only two big events left this season –- the Four Continents championship next month and the worlds in London, Ont., in March.
