New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 1, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B — Herald-Zeitung — Thursday, June I, 2000 STARS/From 1B Belfour’s chaotic play in net. “I think we learned that when Ed Belfour is average or below average, we are not a very good team,” Hitchcock said. “We’ve made mistakes before in games, and he always saved our bacon. For the first time, maybe he did not do those things. But he will be back on course.” And guess who won’t be on medication Thursday night? “I’ve been told to get off that,” Belfour said. “It throws your balance off, and your equilibrium.” It also clearly upset the Stars’ steady-as-you-go approach, one that carried them through seven rounds of the playoffs the last two seasons. The difference is, for the first time since 1995, they don’t have home ice advantage, thanks to the Devils’ 103-102 edge in regu-lar-season points. The Stars have a history of coming back from Game I losses, having done so against Colorado in the last two Western finals and in the Stanley Cup finals against Buffalo last year. They lost to the Sabres 3-2 in overtime in Game I, then rallied to win four of the next five. But... “This is a little different — this is on the road,” Hitchcock said. “We know the pressure is on us. We know we’ve got to win. When you don’t have home ice, you know you need to win on the road, and if it goes too long, you run out of games. When you lose at home, you’ve got a cushion. When you lose on the road, there is no cushion.” Lose today, and the Stars understand they might never regain their edge against the Devils.

Sports BriefsDiscus thrower breaks record DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Auburn discus thrower Gabor Mate continually watches films of 1976 Olympic champion Mac Wilkins. On Wednesday, Mate won a gold medal for the second straight year at the NCAA Track and Field Championships at Duke’s Wallace Wade Stadium. To cap his performance, the sophomore from Hungary smashed Wilkins’ 18-year-old stadium record with a toss of 215 feet, 8 inches on his final throw. Wilkins had set the mark of 212-6 in 1982.Grieving Van Roost triumphs at French PARIS (AP) — Lindsay Davenport, wincing from pain and moving stiffly from back spasms, was eliminated at the French Open Wednesday with a first-round loss to a grieving Dominique Van Roost. Van Roost, mourning the death of her mother, outlasted the second-seeded Davenport 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3. The match was Davenport’s first since a back injury forced her to withdraw from a tournament at Rome two weeks ago.Richard inspires • applause at funeral MONTREAL (AP) — Even in death, Maurice Richard, 78, inspired outbursts of admiring applause from the thousands who came Wednesday to say goodbye at an emotional funeral service. The funeral for Richard, who died Saturday at 78 after a long battle with abdominal cancer and Parkinson’s disease, attracted a who’s who of hockey and politics rarely seen together in one setting. Prime ministers, Quebec pre miers past and present, as well as hockey stars from at least seven decades were among those who paid tribute to the man whose on-ice exploits thrilled all of Canada from 1942 until 1960.Penn State baseball coach ill STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State baseball coach Joe Hindelang will miss a super-regional championship series in Texas this weekend after suffering a mild heart attack early Wednesday. Joe Hindelang, 54, was in stable condition after being transferred to the Hershey Medical Center, sports information director Jeff Nelson said. Assistant coach Randy Ford will fill in for Hindelang in the best-of-three series against Texas that begins Friday night. The winner goes to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Major League BriefsRockets, Authority close to arena deal HOUSTON (AP) — The chair-man of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority said Wednesday it is only a matter of time before the authority and the Houston Rockets reach an agreement for a downtown arena for pro basketball and hockey. The deal is 75-80 percent done, chairman Billy Burge said. Any agreement reached between the authority and the Rockets would have to be approved by voters in a November referendum. Voters turned down a proposal for a $160 million arena proposal by a 55 percent margin last November.White Sox 4, Mariners 3 SEATTLE (AP) — Herbert Perry hit a tiebreaking double in the ninth inning Wednesday, leading the Chicago White Sox over the Seattle Mariners 4-3. Carlos Lee reached second with one out in the ninth when third baseman John Mabry allowed the ball to go under his glove for a two-base error. Perry followed with a ground-rule double to right off Kazuhiro Sazaki.Pirates 5, Marlins 2 PITTSBURGH (AP) — WH Cordero and Jason Kendall homered as the Pittsburgh Pirates completed a three-game sweep of the Florida Marlins with a 5-2 victory Wednesday night. Francisco Cordova (3-4) pitched 6 2-3 innings, allowed two runs, IO hits, struck out five and walked one. Mike Williams got the last out for his eighth save. Both of Pittsburgh's homers came off Florida starter Jesus Sanchez (4-4).Blue Jays 4, Twins 2 TORONTO (AP) — David Wells got his 150th career win, matching his season high with IO strikeouts as the Toronto Blue Jays stopped the Minnesota Twins’ four-game winning streak, 4-2 Wednesday night. Wells (9-2) allowed eight hits in eight-plus innings and walked none. Cristian Guzman’s two-out homer in the eighth drove in Minnesota’s first run.
