GLENDALE – Martin Hanzal scored the winning goal in the Phoenix Coyotes’ 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

The Coyotes, seeking to play playoff spoiler, kept the Oilers from gaining critical points in their chase of a Western Conference playoff spot. Edmonton lost its third straight while Phoenix won for the third time in five games.

Matthew Lombardi had a goal and an assist, and Ken Klee also scored for Phoenix. Hanzal’s second-period tally stood up as the game-winner.

Sheridan breaks leg

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan quarterback Nick Sheridan will miss the rest of spring drills with a broken leg.

Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez said on Thursday that Sheridan was injured during a scrimmage on Tuesday.

Sheridan is expected to be out for four to six weeks and should be able to work out with his teammates this summer.

Clijsters will return

BREE, Belgium – Kim Clijsters will return to professional tennis after two years in retirement, saying she has regained the competitive hunger that led to the No. 1 ranking.

“I still have that craving,” the 25-year-old Belgian said Thursday. “I look forward to the challenge.”

Clijsters, who retired in May 2007 to get married and start a family, announced her comeback at the tennis facility where she has been practicing.

She plans to enter the U.S. Open, which begins Aug. 31.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
