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.

Nicklas Lidstrom had three assists and Chris Osgood made 25 saves to help Detroit beat visiting Anaheim last night, 3-1. Henrik Zetterberg, Mathieu Schneider and Kris Draper scored for the Red Wings, who have won four straight and six of seven. Osgood, who has been Manny Legace's backup this season, got his second straight win in his second consecutive start. Teemu Selanne scored for Anaheim, which had its three-game winning streak snapped. Zetterberg scored on the Red Wings' first shot just a minute into the game, when he beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere with a low wrist shot for his 34th goal.

The Flyers yesterday signed right wing Brian Wesenberg, whom they acquired in a March trade with Anaheim. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Wesenberg, 19, scored 25 goals and added 33 assists for 58 points and 161 penalty minutes in 66 regular-season games with the Guelph Storm, of the Ontario Hockey League last season.

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.

NEW YORK - As he mindlessly shagged balls in the vast Yankee Stadium outfield Monday afternoon, that recent rumor about Mike Trout didn't seem so crazy at all. Three weeks ago, a Boston newspaper suggested the scuffling Los Angeles Angels were considering moving their Roy Hobbs-ian centerfielder. If they did, it said, the Yankees would be the most logical destination. Now, on this blue-sky afternoon, as he stood where Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle had become Yankee legends - center field in the Bronx - Trout was framed by the magnitude of that pin-striped possibility.

A year ago, I (somehow) correctly predicted 14 of the 15 playoff series, so it will be virtually impossible to come close to that. But here's my first-round try: EASTERN CONFERENCE Washington over the Flyers in six: Talent trumps emotion. The Capitals are on a mission. Florida over the Islanders in six: The Panthers are better than people think, and they were insulted by the Isles' tank job in order to face them. Pittsburgh over the Rangers in seven: The Penguins, despite goalie injuries, will beat the team that eliminated them in the last two years.

The Flyers, coming off one-goal weekend losses to the Rangers and Washington, will try to rebound Tuesday against the rejuvenated Anaheim Ducks at the Wells Fargo Center. After a miserable 1-7-2 October, Anaheim has been one of the NHL's best teams. The Ducks were on a 24-11-5 run heading into Monday's game in Pittsburgh, the start of a grueling seven-game, 13-day trip that will encompass more than 7,300 miles. The Flyers, after playing three games in four days, had an off day Monday and will try to get their offense back on track against the Ducks.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was sidelined by an undisclosed upper-body injury Sunday in Anaheim, and Brandon Manning took his place in the Flyers' lineup. The injury is not believed to be severe, and Del Zotto is listed as day-to-day. Del Zotto, who has eight points and a minus-8 rating in 34 games, had been paired with Evgeny Medvedev lately. Manning had been a healthy scratch the previous two games. He entered the night with three points and a plus-2 rating in 26 games.

Together, they formed the Flyers' top defensive pairing for most of their seasons in Philadelphia. Now, in a twist of fate, Tampa Bay's Braydon Coburn and Chicago's Kimmo Timonen - good friends dealt by the Flyers before the trade deadline - will oppose each other in the Stanley Cup Finals, which start Wednesday in Tampa. Both have had major medical problems this season but find themselves within four victories of winning their first Stanley Cup. "It's great. After everything I went through, this is the reason - and the only reason - that I came back," said Timonen, 40, who missed most of the season with blood clots.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Flyers' road losing streak continues, but they managed to salvage a point Wednesday night. Somehow. The Flyers were about to be 5-3 losers as Devante Smith-Pelly had a 20-foot shot for an empty-net goal that would close out an Anaheim victory at the Honda Center. But Smith-Pelly lost control of the puck, the Flyers raced down the other end, and Wayne Simmonds scored on his own rebound with 2.6 seconds remaining to knot the score at 4. No matter. Anaheim won in a shootout, 5-4, with Corey Perry scoring the game-winner against Steve Mason.

Maybe they'll recover, like last season, and become a very good hockey team. But right now, the Flyers are going through a frustrating period and are off to another dismal start. They dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to Anaheim on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center, slipping to 0-2-2, which gives them the same point total they had at this time last year (1-3). William Karlsson scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout. The Flyers have lost seven straight shootouts, and are a league-worst 27-53 lifetime in the penalty-shot showcase.

THE OPTIMIST rolled out of the Flyers' dressing room last night feeling confident, knowing that his team erased not one but two daunting deficits against a clear-cut Stanley Cup contender before falling in a skills competition. "I think this was our most competitive, for me, of the four ," coach Craig Berube said. "I think for an overall 60 minutes, this was the best one. The result wasn't what we wanted. " The pessimist trudged out of the Wells Fargo Center after last night's 4-3 shootout loss to Anaheim feeling the loneliness of a zero in the win column, knowing the Flyers still have to face six of the last eight Stanley Cup winners to close out October.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Even though the Flyers opened their ultra-challenging California trip with a 5-3 defeat in Anaheim on Thursday, coach Craig Berube saw positives. The Flyers, who play in San Jose on Monday night, outshot the powerful Ducks and had a 4-1 edge in power plays. They matched Anaheim's physical style and were hard on the puck. "We lost, but I really liked our competitiveness," Berube said. "I liked the way we played. " He was even more satisfied with the team's performance Saturday, a hard-fought 2-0 win over the offensively challenged Kings in Los Angeles.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Throughout Thursday night's game, the chants that echoed around the Honda Center made you feel as if your were in South Philly, not Southern California: "Let's Go Flyers!" The Flyers attracted their fans, played hard, but made too many mistakes in front of goalie Steve Mason. And that doesn't work too well when you face the NHL's best team, the Anaheim (mighty) Ducks. Ryan Getzlaf had his second career Gordie Howe hat trick _ a goal, assist, and fight _ as the Ducks outlasted the Flyers, 5-3. The Ducks, a physical team, had traffic in front of Mason for most of the game and that contributed to a few of their goals.
