The Anaheim Mighty Ducks cleared another difficult barrier in their brief history as they finally defeated the Detroit Red Wings on the 13th try. Teemu Selanne and Garry Valk scored the tying and go-ahead goals 22 seconds apart midway through the second period of a 3-1 victory last night in Anaheim. It gave Valk, Bobby Dollas, Joe Sacco and Guy Hebert particular satisfaction, because they have been Mighty Ducks from the team's beginning in 1993. "I know it means a lot for the team and it means a lot for me personally," said Dollas, whom the Ducks selected from Detroit's roster in the 1993 expansion draft.

This was a big deal to Dominic Roussel, starting in goal for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim against the Flyers. The day before the game, he laughed it off, told California reporters he "got my revenge a couple of years ago," in 1996, when Roussel started for Winnipeg against his old Flyers teammates and won, 4-1. "Got that out of my system," Roussel said Tuesday. But last night, a few hours before the game, Roussel acknowledged 1996 wasn't the end of the story. "It's a pretty big deal," Roussel said.

" The Storm took the early lead in the first quarter with a goal by Chris Panos.

These Disney scripts just keep getting more and more unbelievable. First, they gave us Angels in the Outfield, the 1994 movie (a remake of a 1951 film) about heavenly beings providing divine intervention for the California Angels. Now, the folks at Disney - which owns the Anaheim team - have given us Angels in the World Series, the 2002 edge-of-your-seat thriller that stars a different player every day. In Game 5 of the American League Championship Series yesterday, the man of the hour was Adam Kennedy, a 26-year-old second baseman who did an uncanny impersonation of Reggie Jackson and triggered Anaheim's series-clinching 13-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

Pat Maroon finally breathed a sigh of relief yesterday. His pro career will continue in the Anaheim organization. More than 3 weeks after being sent home from the Phantoms because of "behavioral" and "attitude" issues, Maroon was traded. The Flyers sent him and forward David Laliberte to Anaheim for former Flyer Danny Syvret and prospect Rob Bordson. "I am looking forward to putting this behind me," said Maroon, a forward. "I don't have any hard feelings. I'm excited for a fresh, new start.

Instead of campaigning to ban South Park for young children, maybe all these parent groups ought to consider banning games in which the Flyers have to play the dregs of the NHL. That kind of contest consistently seems to bring out the worst in the Flyers. Such as last night's 3-3 overtime tie against the not-so-Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The game was so bad that the Ducks were icing the puck early in the final period. That may have been because they don't have a defense in front of the net. Several things haunted the Flyers.

You could see the look of relief on many of the Flyers' faces yesterday during their afternoon skate at Oceanside Arena in Tempe. Their 4-3 victory late Wednesday over the lowly Mighty Ducks of Anaheim might not have registered as an NHL classic, but it snapped a three-game losing streak. "It was a huge, huge win, and I don't know if people realize that," said center Joel Otto, who expects to return to the lineup tonight when the Flyers face Keith Tkachuk, Jeremy Roenick and the Phoenix Coyotes.

Good things came in bunches for the Flyers last night at Arrowhead Pond against Disney's Mighty Ducks. They actually won a road game, 4-3. They also scored a power-play goal. Better yet, John LeClair and Mikael Renberg finally got their first goals of the season. Oh, did was it mentioned that the Flyers broke a three-game losing streak and even had to come from behind? Yep, they trailed by 3-2 going into the final period. Kjell Samuelsson, who scored against the Kings on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, nearly tied the game in the opening minutes of the third period, but the puck was spinning on the goal line, not across it. No problem.
