Justify Wins Preakness, Vegas Eliminates Jets, Cavs Break Deficit, Warriors Retake Series Lead and Harvick Wins NASCAR All-Star Race
Justify won the 143rd Preakness Stakes on Saturday on a foggy track at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Leading for most of the race, Justify fought off tough competition flanked by Good Magic and Bravazo to win by a half-length. This follows Justify's win at the Kentucky Derby and represents the second leg of the Triple Crown. The final race to secure the Triple Crown will be the Belmont Stakes on June 9 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Only 12 horses have won the Triple Crown in its 99-year history, the last being American Pharoah in 2015.
Over the weekend the Las Vegas Golden Knights made short work of the Winnipeg Jets, routing them on Friday and taking the Western Conference Finals last night. In Game Five in Winnipeg last night, both teams made 32 shots but the Jets could only muster one goal falling short to the Golden Knights in a 2-1 loss. In only letting in a single goal last night, many attribute Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury's performance for much of the team's success. NHL.com quotes Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt:
"He's showing us the way home," said defenseman Nate Schmidt, who called Fleury the "line leader" of the team. "Hey, the guy has won a couple of Stanley Cups, but it may not have been the way he wanted to do it the last couple of years. For him to be back here, it shows how great of a teammate he is and why our guys love playing in front of him."
On Saturday the Tampa Bay Lightning took the series lead with a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals. Washington faces a possible elimination in their hometown game tonight, which would pit the Lightning against the Knights for the Stanley Cup final.
In NBA news, the Cavs broke out of their two-game deficit with a 116-86 victory over the Celtics on Saturday in Cleveland. Cleveland has a chance to tie the series up 2-2 tonight. Golden State regained the series dominance over the Houston Rockets with a 126-85 in Oakland.
Kevin Harvick won the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race on Saturday. NASCAR Wire Service reports:
"Harvick's No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford was still the strongest car in the field, and the driver who already has five points wins this season added another in the marquee exhibition race, taking control of the event with an overtime surge at the end of the 20-lap third stage and sealing the victory by outrunning Daniel Suarez in the final two-lap drag race to the finish."
