SPORTLIGHT

May 18

1957–Bold Ruler, ridden by Eddie Arcaro, wins the Preakness Stakes by two lengths over Iron Liege.

1971–The Montreal Canadiens beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in the seventh game to win the Stanley Cup.

1985–Patricia Cooksey becomes the first female jockey to compete in the Preakness Stakes. Tank’s Prospect wins the race and Cooksey’s mount, Tajawa, finishes sixth in the field of 11.

1990–Edmonton’s Jari Kurri becomes the leading goal scorer in Stanley Cup history when he scores his 90th postseason goal in the first period of Game 2 of the finals against Boston. Kurri adds two more goals as the Oilers beat the Bruins 7-2.

1997–Chris Johnson makes an 8-foot par putt on the second playoff hole to win the LPGA championship over Leta Lindley. It’s the third playoff in the championship since the tournament began in 1955, and the first since 1970.

2002–War Emblem, ridden by Victor Espinoza, holds off fast-closing long shot Magic Weisner by three-quarters of a length to win the Preakness Stakes and set up a shot at the Triple Crown. Trainer Bob Baffert gets a third shot at a Triple Crown in the last six years.

2008–Boston’s Paul Pierce and Cleveland’s LeBron James combine for 81 points, 36 in the fourth quarter of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Boston remains unbeaten in the playoffs at home with a 97-92 win. James outscores Pierce 45-41 in the shootout.
