    LOS ANGELES — Hooray for Hockeywood.

    The Los Angeles Kings’ 45-year quest for an NHL title ended Monday night with an early flurry of power-play goals, followed by two periods of unbearable anticipation — right up to the moment when Dustin Brown snatched the Stanley Cup from Commissioner Gary Bettman.

  • Hot start for ‘Topes vs. Express

    Feasting on Round Rock pitching by cranking out extra base hits, the Albuquerque Isotopes took a 12-5 win over the visiting Express on Monday night to open a three-game series.

    While none of the ‘Topes homered in the game, they combined for 17 hits, including five doubles and a triple.

    Albuquerque (37-28 as of Monday night) got off to a quick start, scoring five in the bottom of the first against Round Rock starter Zach Jackson.

    OKLAHOMA CITY — LeBron James is quickly racking up MVP awards while Kevin Durant is collecting scoring titles at the same pace.

    Either could make a case as the best player in the NBA.

    Neither is interested in anything beyond team accomplishments.

    One of them is about to get the only crown he craves, their head-to-head duel the leading story line of the NBA finals that were to begin Tuesday night when Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder host James and the Miami Heat.

    LAS VEGAS  — Timothy Bradley promised to shock, though the biggest shock in his fight with Manny Pacquiao came from the judges’ scorecards.

    In a fight Pacquiao seemed to have in hand, two judges decided otherwise, giving Bradley a split decision Saturday night and ending the Filipino fighter’s remarkable seven-year unbeaten run.

  • WLV softball players shine in...

    Montanna Martinez’s two-out grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning played like a Hollywood script during the North-South All-Star softball games over the weekend.

    It also helped secure the West Las Vegas graduate the coveted Most Valuable Player honors for the event, which was held in Bayard.

  • Isotopes strand Memphis runners...

    By some measures, Isotopes pitcher Will Savage didn’t have a fantastic game Saturday.

    Savage allowed eight hits — one a home run — and gave up four walks, striking out just a couple Memphis batters.

    But that six-inning performance by Savage plus one inning apiece of shutout ball by relievers Derrick Loop, Scott Rice and Josh Wall was critical in Albuquerque’s 2-1 defense-heavy victory at Isotopes Park.
