Phoenix’s Montoya stops 40 shots in win

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Al Montoya made 40 saves in the rookie goalie’s third NHL victory, and the last-place Phoenix Coyotes prevented the league-leading San Jose Sharks from clinching the Presidents’ Trophy with an improbable 4-1 victory Thursday night.

Penguins 6, Islanders 1: At Pittsburgh, Evgeni Malkin picked up two assists to lengthen his lead in the NHL scoring race (112 points) and Pittsburgh won.

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.
