On the scoresheet Saturday

A most entertaining contest last night at the arena in downtown La-La Land. Chicagoland’s Patrick Kane (pictured) opened the scoring with his eighth goal of the season at 11:21 of Period 1. The Kings equalized early in the second, and the game stayed tied until 1:06 of overtime, when Jeff Carter’s 10th goal of the season gave La-La Land the 2-1 win. Fine game.

The Chicagoland fans were in good voice until the end. Someone brought a Blue-W (‘Cubs win! Cubs win!’) banner to display during the warmups. There were even a few forlorn Notre Dotre supporters who trudged in from the Coliseum. Chicagoland!

Yesterday’s Activity:

Aqueduct (2/0) — Knickerbockers lose at Charlotte, 107-102; Kristaps Porzingis had 25 pts. for Nueva Jork.

Churchill (2/1) — Race 9 was contentious, but only High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads had a chance to be happy with Farrell, a good 86 on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis; she went gate-to-wire to win by 6 at $23-even. Good work.

Calder (0/0) — Panthers edge Columbus, 2-1, in shootout; Jaro Jagr, still in the league, had Fla.’s regulation-time goal.

Chas. Town (1/0) — Victim identified in Friday Shepherdstown car accident.

Delta (3/0) — Low turnout for first day of early voting in Calcasieu Parish.

Del Mar (0/0) — Band of storms drenches San Diego Co.

Fair Grounds (4/2) — Race 1 was not contentious, but High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads were taken in by the field-best 89 on Quiet Seduction, who went gate-to-wire to win by 1¾ at $22.80. Race 9 was contentious, and only High-Octane Chancers and Progressive Minded Eggheads were eligible to have a good time with Guess Who Charlie, a good-enough prospect on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis; he went gate-to-wire to win by 3 at $23-straight. Good work.

Retama (2/1) — Race 4 was contentious, but Dual Qualifier Uncle Ron (99, 82) proved a good relative only to the High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads; he was a stalking-horse throughout before opening up inside the furlong-grounds to a 2¾-length win at $48.60. Good work.

Remington (2/1) — Race 7 was contentious, and High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads were hearing only good things from Suite Gossip, a fine 85 on the LifeLiner Speed Column analysis; he rallied like the champion he’s on his way to becoming, winning by 6¾ at $35.80. Good work.
