[ Editor's note: This is IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay's second blog for The Baltimore Sun. It was written before he won the pole for Sunday's race in Edmonton. To see his introductory post, click here. ]   Welcome back, everyone. It's been a great run lately, three consecutive wins and going for four this weekend in Edmonton. I think the reason behind it is that our team is reaching its potential, to be honest. Early in the season, we knew we were a threat to win races, but we just didn't quite get it done.

The Carolina Hurricanes finished off a stirring comeback with the easiest of goals. Now things really get tough for the Edmonton Oilers. Rod Brind'Amour scored off a flukey mistake with 31.1 seconds remaining when Edmonton's backup goalie botched an exchange behind the net, and the Hurricanes rallied to beat the visiting Oilers, 5-4, in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals last night. The upstart Oilers received grim news after the game: Starting goalie Dwayne Roloson - who had played every minute of the playoffs until he went down with just under six minutes remaining - is done for the series.

Doris Alcarese, a Canadian farm girl who became a Baltimore man's bride with the help of an Army mix-up, died of pancreatic cancer Saturday at Gilchrist Hospice Center in Towson. Mrs. Alcarese, a retired property manager and a resident of Parkville, was 77. Born Doris Duggan outside Edmonton, Alberta, she spent her early years on a farm without electricity and indoor plumbing. She received her early education in a one-room schoolhouse. She was attending business college in Edmonton when she met Andrew A. Alcarese, an Army Air Corps traffic engineer who was stranded in the city - then a way station for U.S. servicemen heading for duty in Alaska - because the Army lost his papers, according to their son William F. Alcarese of Carney.

The National Professional Soccer League has ceased operations of the Edmonton Drillers, a franchise in the league since 1988, effective immediately, according to commissioner Steve Ryan. The league, which took over operations of the franchise on Nov. 15 on an interim basis after Edmonton ownership failed to meet payroll obligations, was unable to find new local ownership. The league is now working on revising the remainder of the 2000-2001 schedule. It will also conduct a re-entry draft for the Edmonton players on Monday afternoon, providing them with an opportunity to finish the season with other teams in the league.

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Seven points in a 43-second span of the fourth quarter gave the Blast all the lead it needed yesterday. The 16-8 win over the Edmonton Drillers solidified the team's lead in the NPSL's American Conference standings, moving it 3 1/2 games up on idle Philadelphia in the East Division. Denison Cabral, the Blast's leading scorer, started the burst with a three-point goal. He one-timed a long pass from Erik Rasmussen past Drillers goalkeeper Paul Shepherd. It was Cabral's first three-pointer of the season.

Coach Kevin Healey won't deny that his team has more talent than last season's, which finished with one fewer win than the Blast now has this winter. But when it comes to the real difference between the teams, he pointed to the fourth period and the Blast's recent dominating performances at game's end. "It's about conditioning and a championship mentality," said Healey, whose team outscored Edmonton 13-4 in the final quarter en route to a 22-12 win last night before 3,711 at Baltimore Arena.
