Sports Roundup – May 30

The Canadiens and Maple Leafs are going the distance. Jesperi Kotkaniemi scored in overtime and Montreal defeated Toronto 3-2 to force a winner-take-all Game 7 in their first-round N-H-L- playoff series. The game was played in front of 25-hundred fans at the Bell Centre _ the first Canadian hockey crowd since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Three goals by David Pastrnak gave the Boston Bruins a 5-2 win over the New York Islanders in Game 1 of their second-round series. It was Pastrnak’s second career playoff hat trick. David Krejci added four assists for Boston. The Bruins host Game 2 on Monday night.


The top-seeded Utah Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies 121-111 to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Donovan Mitchell scored 10 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter for Utah. Canadian Dillon Brooks, of Mississauga, Ontario, had 27 points before fouling out for the Grizzlies. Game 4 is Monday night in Memphis.


The San Francisco Giants combined for 16 hits to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-6. The Giants have won consecutive games at Dodger Stadium after losing the first four in the season series. Pitcher Logan Webb held the Dodgers to just one hit and one earned run over five innings.


The Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 6-2 on a 3-for-3 night by Luis Urias. Milwaukee swept the day-night doubleheader and is two games over 500 for the first time since May 13. The Nationals are last in the N-L East following a three-game losing streak.


Keegan Rosenberry scored his first goal of the Major League Soccer season and the Colorado Rapids beat F-C Dallas 3-0. William Yarbrough had a season-high six saves for the clean sheet. Dallas has lost four straight regular-season away matches.
