Monsters take down Stars in shootout


Alex Broadhurst scored in the shootout to lift the Cleveland Monsters to a 2-1 win over the Texas Stars in an American Hockey League contest at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Saturday night.

Broadhurst’s fourth-round goal proved to be the winner as he beat the Stars’ Maxime Lagace.

Caleb Herbert provided all of the offense for the Stars (16-13-1-2), scoring in regulation and their only goal in the shootout, but it wasn’t enough.

Anton Forsberg made 38 saves on 39 shots to pick up the win for the defending Calder Cup champions, avenging Friday’s loss to Texas.

Lagace made 27 saves on 29 shots for the Stars.

The Stars took a 1-0 lead on Herbert’s backhand goal early in the first period. That made five points in the last six games for Herbert. Ethan Werek assisted on the play.

Cleveland (17-13-1-2) got back in the game when Nick Moutrey scored midway through the middle period to tie the game. It was his fifth goal of the season.

The goaltenders dominated the rest of regulation and overtime.

Lagace saved a third-period penalty shot by Sonny Milano and made four saves in overtime.

Forsberg stopped shots by Brendan Ranford, Brandon DeFazio and Travis Morin in the shootout.

Jordan Maletta converted a shot to tie the shootout before Broadhurst made the game winning shot.

The Stars next go on the road for three games, beginning with a matchup against the Ontario Reign on Wednesday at 9 p.m.

Earnhardt Jr.'s retirement is right for him, not for NASCAR

Regardless of the playing field, regardless of the stature of the champion, it is the last act of a career in professional sports that is most difficult to master. How does an athlete know when to quit? How does he recognize that dreaded sweet spot, just before the joy is lost and before time and age, in their inexorable way, start chipping away at...

This kindergarten is noisy at nap time

It was late Tuesday afternoon at the Pestalozzi Foundation kindergarten, and a few dozen children and their parents were hanging around past the normal pickup hour. There was no rush to get home, really. They were enjoying the view from the kindergarten’s rear veranda: the inside of Millerntor-Stadion, the 29,546-seat stadium that is home to...

Young pole vaulter’s career path looks like his soaring vault

A pole-vaulting runway extends about 125 feet from the side of the Duplantis family’s Acadian-style home, under a gate and into the backyard, where it ends at a foam landing pit, floodlit by a light made for an oil rig. It was, until recently, the training site for the family’s youngest son, Armand. On April 1, at the Texas Relays, he vaulted...

Quarterback might not be top priority in first round of NFL draft

If anyone questions whether the NFL is a quarterback-driven league, consider that many of the worst teams are looking for one. That said, this year's crop of quarterback prospects could have those teams saying pass, pass, pass — at least at the top of this year's three-day draft, which starts Thursday in Philadelphia. "As far as the quarterbacks...

T.J. Watt ready to write own tale in NFL with big brother

Fairly or not, T.J. Watt will draw comparisons to his big brother when he gets to the pros.  Oh sure, he can speed past an offensive tackle and split double teams just like another former Wisconsin star with the same last name and similar skillset as a pass rusher.  But J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans is an NFL star with the ability to change...
