Irish alumni continue to flourish in professional sports as Riley Sheahan helped the Red Wings claim yet another Stanley Cup playoff berth with a tally in last night’s game. Riley’s goal tied the game at three with just 1:15 left in the third period, securing the Red Wings 23rd-straight Stanley Cup Playoff appearance.
In other alumni news, John Axford registered his fourth save in as many chances last night in a 2-0 win for his Cleveland Indians over the San Diego Padres.
