PHOENIX - By squeezing a 48-game schedule into 98 days, the NHL effectively erased the idea of a day off this season. Which is just fine with Ducks center Andrew Cogliano, who hasn't taken a day off since making his NHL debut seven years and 430 games ago. But that doesn't mean Cogliano and his teammates don't get tired. And they were exhausted Saturday when, playing their second game in 22 hours and fifth in a week, the Ducks wasted Cogliano's second career hat trick, twice giving up third-period leads before losing to the Phoenix Coyotes, 5-4, in a shootout.

It's amazing what a few days in Scotland can do for a soccer player. Chivas USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan spent the last week in Glasgow on a tryout with Scottish champion Celtic, returning to California only Thursday afternoon. On Saturday, he scored three goals -- achieving a feat not accomplished since 1934 -- as the U.S. defeated Sweden, 3-2, in a lively, entertaining and now historic friendly at the Home Depot Center.

Nas who? That's a question you won't hear too much anymore. The New York rapper, who has a very strong following in the hip-hop underground, has finally made himself a force to be reckoned with on the mainstream pop charts. "It Was Written," his second Columbia album, scores hat tricks on The Times' Southern California chart and on the national sales chart--a No. 1 position on the album, R&B and rap charts.
