    With a nod to the two dominant personas of Mr. Hockey, his family was joined by hundreds of friends and acquaintances Wednesday for a funeral service to bid farewell to one of the NHL’s greatest players.

  • Isotopes split with Chihuahuas

    Stephen Cardullo smashed his team-leading ninth home run Wednesday night to lead off the Isotopes’ scoring, but El Paso went on to a 6-3 win in the third of a four-game set.

    The series was to conclude on Thursday evening.

    Cardullo’s solo homer with two out in the first gave Albuquerque a 1-0 edge held until the bottom of the third.

    That’s when Manuel Margot scored on a Carlos Asuaje single and Asuaje made it home on Hunter Renfroe’s line-drive hit to grab a 2-1 lead. Both runs were scored with two outs.
