MORE: NHL playoff scores, TV schedule, live updates Receiving a pinpoint pass from teammate Mark Scheifele, Wheeler made no mistake from point-blank range, one-timing the puck over Blues goalie Jordan Binnington’s left shoulder.Wheeler went 13 games (12 regular-season, one playoff) without scoring, an uncharacteristic dry spell for a player who has reached the 20-goal plateau in six consecutive seasons (seven total). Unfortunately for the Jets, Wheeler’s return to goal-scoring form wasn’t enough to overcome a Blues team that took a 2-0 first-round series lead with the victory. Blake Wheeler avoided a monthlong goal drought by a single day.The Jets’ captain hadn’t scored since March 14, but on Friday night Wheeler finally got himself back on the scoresheet with Winnipeg’s opening goal in a 4-3 Game 2 loss to the St. Louis Blues. It was also Wheeler’s first point of the playoffs; the 32-year-old had no goals or assists in 17:03 of ice time in Game 1, a 2-1 St. Louis victory on Wednesday.
NORTHWOOD — A St. Paul man arrested after a pursuit that started in Albert Lea and ended in Worth County has reached an agreement to plead guilty. 30-year-old Ryan Amabile was accused of speeding away from 1619 Main Street West in Albert Lea at about 4 o’clock on the afternoon of September 25th. Authorities say they clocked Amabile driving at speeds of over 100 miles per hour as he eventually made his way onto US Highway 69, driving into Iowa through Lake Mills, eastbound on Worth County Road 105 towards Interstate 35, where he allegedly displayed a handgun from the vehicle. He allegedly tried to carjack another vehicle about a mile from Wheelerwood Road. A Freeborn County deputy fired three rounds from his vehicle to stop the carjacking, with the suspect then being taken into custody. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, he pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of first-degree theft. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in Worth County District Court on December 9th.
DAMBULLA, Sri Lanka (CMC):West Indies A made a stuttering start to the opening unofficial one-day international (ODI) against Sri Lanka A before rain intervened to end play prematurely at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium here yesterday.Opting to bat first, the Caribbean side had reached 69 for two in the 13th over, with opener Kyle Hope unbeaten on 28 and Andre Fletcher on seven. The game will be concluded on today’s reserve day.Head coach Graeme West rued the weather interruption and said West Indies A would need to find their momentum again on what was a good batting track, if they were to put Sri Lanka A under pressure.”We got ourselves into a good position with some positive batting, and we’ll certainly need more of the same tomorrow,” West said afterwards.”It looks a good wicket, (there’s) not much happening for the spinners and it’s pretty slow for the quicks, so we need to build around Kyle Hope and Andre Fletcher … and set something up for some of the positive players to come later on in the innings and try and post something that will put the Sri Lankans under pressure.”They’ve certainly got an experienced and powerful top six themselves so we’ll certainly need a big score to put them under pressure.”The right-handed Hope put on 40 for the first wicket with Chadwick Walton, who made 16 from 12 balls with two fours and a six, before falling in the sixth over.Hope, who has counted four boundaries in a 39-ball innings, then added a further 23 with left-hander Assad Fudadin, who scored 14 off 10 deliveries with two fours and a six, before perishing in the eighth over.The game is the first of a three-match series against the hosts, with Jason Mohammed leading the unit.West Indies A, under the leadership of Shamarh Brooks, suffered a 2-1 defeat in the three-match, four-day Test series, which ended last week.
