Manon Rheaume, pro hockey's only female player, gave up six goals Saturday night in her first start for the Atlanta Knights. Rheaume made 25 saves, but knocked a shot into her own goal in the third period to give Cincinnati a 6-5 lead. After she was pulled for an extra skater, Cincinnati scored two empty-net goals to beat the Knights, 8-6. "I tried my best, but I made a few too many mistakes," Rheaume said. "I'm a little disappointed. . . . I really wanted to win for the guys more than myself."
