  • Caps get even in the desert

    By Greg Beacham

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Alex Tuch collected the skittering puck with absolutely nothing between him and the tying goal with two minutes left in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.
    Braden Holtby reacted with pure instinct.
    Washington’s goalie stretched back and lunged to his right with his stick, thrusting the paddle into the exact 4-inch slot of air through which Tuch’s shot was headed for the net.
    “Luckily it hit me,” Holtby said with a shrug.

  • Topes fall in 11th

    Fresno’s Jon Kemmer scored on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 11th inning, boosting the Grizzlies to a 12-11 win over Albuquerque on Wednesday night at the Lab.

    That followed a successful road trip for the Isotopes, who won a series in Sacramento for the first time, taking three of five games in the California capital.

    Albuquerque hit four home runs Wednesday and rallied from the 8-3 deficit they faced going into the sixth inning.

    The Associated Press

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — In a single nine-minute stretch of the third period, the Washington Capitals dramatically took the lead before the Vegas Golden Knights replied with two goals of their own. Washington’s Tom Wilson also flattened Vegas forward Jonathan Marchessault with a blindside hit that could reverberate through the Stanley Cup Final.

  • Topes double up on River Cats

    Sam Howard didn’t just pitch a good game Monday to help the Isotopes double up host Sacramento 4-2.

    He also contributed a hit in the top of the third inning and wound up scoring a run off Raimel Tapia’s two-out single to make it 1-1.

    Howard pitched five frames, giving up just one run off seven hits and a walk to even his record to 3-3. More importantly, Albuquerque climbed to 28-24, second in the division and two games out of first.
