What did the Detroit Red Wings ever do to Ron Wilson? Well, they fired his father, Larry Wilson, as coach in 1977. They fired his Uncle Johnny too, in 1973. Then there was the time they told Ron's father he'd be playing in the minors for a few games. "Two weeks of conditioning," Ron remembers, still incredulous. "It ended up being 13 years." And all that was long before the Red Wings beat the Mighty Ducks in the first game in franchise history--smoking the Ducks, 7-2, on Oct.

Trey Wilson can't hear the crowd applaud when he scores a goal, and he has scored quite a few since he discovered hockey was a perfect outlet for his energy. The 25-year-old left wing from Riverside was born deaf, which means he can't hear the crunch of skates on ice or the shrill tweet of a referee's whistle, sounds as integral to hockey as pucks and sticks. To Wilson, not being able to hear isn't a problem. It certainly hasn't prevented him from excelling at the sport he took to naturally and without fear of being at a disadvantage.

DALLAS -- Two days of the Ducks' answering questions about the horrid performances in their first two games of the Western Conference quarterfinals was too much to take without some kind of retort. The emphatic answer was on the ice in Game 3. Shaking off blowout losses to the Dallas Stars at home, the Ducks showed they would not let their defense of the Stanley Cup end without a fight in a 4-2 victory that pulled them back into the best-of-seven series at the American Airlines Center.

Brett Hull, one foot in the crease and the other lodged in his mouth, repeatedly called the Ducks "terrible" while they were defeating the Red Wings on Sunday and moving into position to win the Western Conference championship tonight at the Honda Center. Let's analyze this. How is it terrible to pull your goalie for an extra skater late in a game when you have a power play and can create a six-on-four advantage, as Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle did?

In addition, their owner, Bruce McNall, threatened to relinquish control of the team and their star player, Wayne Gretzky, hinted at retirement. And that was only the regular season for the Kings. Well forget all that. They plan to.
