    Hossa may catch a break

    By DON BRENNAN -- Ottawa Sun
      Marian Hossa was unable to steer clear of an illegal hit in the Memorial Cup final, but it appears he may have dodged a bullet upon initial examination of his injured left knee.
     An MRI done on the Senators' No. 1 prospect late Sunday night showed that Hossa -- who starred for the Cup-champion Portland Winter Hawks -- tore his medial collateral ligament, but not the anterior cruciate ligament, when he was kneed by Ryan Davis of the Guelph Storm. Davis was given a five-minute major penalty for the infraction.

     SPOKANE, Wash. (CP) -- In time it will mean more to Chris Madden, but not right now.
     The Guelph Storm goaltender made 103 saves in the final two games to be named most valuable player in this year's Memorial Cup.

    Portland wins Memorial Cup

    BY STEPHEN KNIGHT -- SLAM! Sports
     SPOKANE, Wash. -- It took 15 years, but the Memorial Cup is going back to the state of Oregon.
      Bobby Russell scored at 6:21 of overtime Sunday to give the Western Hockey League champion Portland Winter Hawks a 4-3 win over the Guelph Storm and their first Memorial Cup championship since 1983.
      "By far this is the best day of my life," said an elated Russell, a 20-year-old native of Surrey, B.C. "Someone had to score a goal and if it wasn't me, it would have been one of my 20 teammates."

    Madden makes his mark

    By TIM WHARNSBY -- Toronto Sun
      SPOKANE, Wash. -- Chris Madden left Maple Leafs camp after failing to agree on a contract, but nine months later everyone agreed the stellar goalie played like a pro at the Memorial Cup.
     For his efforts, Madden needed an extra equipment bag to carry home his hardware yesterday. The Guelph Storm sophomore won the Smythe Trophy as the tournament MVP, the Emms Trophy as the most outstanding goalie and was named to the tournament all-star team.

    By RYAN PYETTE -- Calgary Sun
      Calgary's Brent Belecki, the goalie no NHL team wanted, pulled off his Portland Winter Hawks jersey for the final time yesterday in Spokane.

    Spokane breaks Memorial Cup attendance record

    BY STEPHEN KNIGHT -- SLAM! Sports
     SPOKANE, Wash. -- The host Spokane Chiefs were knocked out of the 1998 Memorial Cup Saturday by the Guelph Storm, but that didn't stop the team from breaking the Memorial Cup attendance record for an eight-game series.
      A total of 73,013 fans clicked through the turnstiles for the tournament for an average attendance of 9,126 per game, shattering the 1990 record of 8,820 fans per game when the tournament was held in Hamilton.
