MARIO LEMIEUX, in the third game of his comeback, opened the scoring off
a pass from Jaromir Jagr and returned the favour in the third period to lift Pittsburgh to a 3-2 NHL victory over Washington.
And although the captain departed without scoring off
the 19 balls he faced, Darren Maddy and Mal Loye made amends by steering the total to 78 for one in 26 overs by lunch, with Maddyon 44 and Loye on 32.
Freshman Michelle Somers helped the Conquistadores exceed that total in the 76th minute, scoring off
a pass from Michelle Oakes.
