Whenever and however it began, Mighty Duck goaltender Guy Hebert is in the throes of a crisis. One night after an ugly three-goal first period against San Jose earned Hebert a seat on the bench for the rest of the game, Duck Coach Ron Wilson sent him out again Wednesday against Detroit. And incredibly, Hebert gave up three goals in the first again, then another three in the second and the Ducks lost to the red-hot Red Wings, 6-1, in front of 17,174 at The Pond.

The United States crushed Norway, 7-2, with a four-goal second period for its second victory at the World Hockey Championships in Alba di Canazei, Italy. The Mighty Ducks' Tim Sweeney scored a third-period goal in the victory that puts the U.S. team at the top of the Pool B standings. Guy Hebert, another Duck, had 23 saves.

Mighty Ducks goalie Guy Hebert will go to arbitration, according to agent Dennis Cook. The arbitration hearing is scheduled for Monday. It will result in one-year deal. Cook said he made a counter proposal two weeks ago, but the Ducks have not improved on their most recent offer. Hebert, 30, is coming of his best season. He had a 2.67 goals-against average.

How hot is goalie Guy Hebert? No, he didn't record three consecutive shutouts like Phoenix's Nikolai Khabibulin. But over a longer stretch, it's hard to beat Hebert, who cracked the NHL leaderboard for save percentage Monday, making his season debut in a tie for fifth at .921. Chicago's Jeff Hackett leads the NHL with a .931 mark. Throw out the first month of the season--the Ducks still wish they could--and nobody has a higher save percentage than Hebert.

Duck goalie Guy Hebert never played for Mike Keenan in St. Louis, but he joined the chorus of players who weren't sad to see him go after Keenan was fired as coach and general manager. "I'm kind of interested to see how many messages are on my machine when I get home," said Hebert, who played for the Blues for two seasons before the Ducks claimed him in the 1993 expansion draft. "I still have a soft spot in my heart for the organization. It's definitely a step in the right direction."

The name should be a dead giveaway. Guy Hebert just sounds French-Canadian. He could be from Montreal. Or maybe Quebec City. He must be another of those Quebecois goaltenders playing so well in the NHL, that's for sure. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Hebert is a regular guy from Troy, N.Y., who has settled comfortably into the good life in Orange County. He happens to be the only one on his block who tends goal for the Mighty Ducks.
