The Mighty Ducks' most effective line Sunday? Easy. Center Matt Cullen, right wing Marty McInnis and left wing Jim McKenzie. Jim McKenzie? "I've scored more goals back-handed for some reason," McKenzie said after the Ducks dominated Detroit in a 3-1 victory at the Pond. "Maybe it's because I don't know what end of the stick to use." That Jim McKenzie? Strange as it may sound, that line has clicked since McKenzie became part of the trio, making it a trio-and-a-half, three games ago.

The Mighty Ducks went sifting through the rubble Tuesday, a day after a 5-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres, with a rare appearance by General Manager Pierre Gauthier at practice. Left wing Jim McKenzie was put on waivers to make room on the roster for left wing Maxim Balmochnykh and defenseman Vitali Vishnevski, who were called from Cincinnati late Monday night. A players-only team meeting followed practice, which ended with captain Paul Kariya walking briskly out of the dressing room.

Kevin Haller and Wayne Gretzky continued their mutual disregard Friday. Haller, a Duck defenseman, knocked the Ranger center to the ice midway through the first period, drawing an interference penalty. Gretzky retaliated by attempting to spear Haller. Duck left wing Jim McKenzie then fought Ranger enforcer Rumun Ndur. "I try to play physical against him," Haller said. "He doesn't enjoy physical play. I thought it was a clean hit. Besides, he had the puck. That's the way it goes, though.

Left wing Jim McKenzie, sidelined since last Sunday because of a gash near his right eye, worked out for the first time Saturday. He hopes to be cleared by Duck medical personnel to resume skating Monday. McKenzie was injured when he collided with teammate Matt Cullen and Edmonton's Georges Laraque early in Sunday's game. Cullen's stick accidentally struck McKenzie in the face, causing several blood vessels to burst.

When the Mighty Ducks advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs two years ago, they did so with the league's youngest captain. Paul Kariya was only 22. Like his slap shot, Kariya believes he can improve in his role as a team leader. Standing up in front of his teammates before Game 2 of the Ducks' playoff series against Detroit and delivering a pep talk isn't on his to-do list, however. "I don't think it's necessary," he said. "I shouldn't have to at this point. We're excited about our prospects."

Wild Wing did not score the first goal in the Mighty Ducks' home opener Wednesday night, a 3-0 victory over the Boston Bruins. Jim McKenzie did, at only slightly better odds. The Ducks acquired McKenzie to serve and protect Paul Kariya. Five games into the season, McKenzie has no penalty minutes--and one goal, one fewer than Teemu Selanne. "I'm not angling for power-play time or anything like that," McKenzie said with a smile. "I know why I'm here.

Left wing Jim McKenzie returned to the Duck lineup Friday against the Tampa Bay Lightning, four games after he broke the left eye socket of Dallas defenseman Darryl Sydor in a one-sided fight. "It's been a long month," he joked about his four-game suspension, which actually spanned 10 days. "It felt like a month, anyway." McKenzie can live with the suspension, the first of his NHL career. But what angers him is how he was portrayed as a bully in the wake of a violent Oct.

Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals continues to hit missile-like home runs in pursuit of Roger Maris' record of 61 homers in a season. Jayson Stark of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls him the "Slambino." "I think it would be better to get him an aluminum bat and see how far he could hit it," teammate Gary Gaetti told Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Dispatch. "But you'd have to clear everyone off the field. And you'd have to warn the fans: 'He's using an aluminum bat.

DENVER "I like the Denver Buffalo Company. They serve a real buffalo steak, and they're really good. A lot of the places where we eat are dictated by where you stay on the road. Youdon't want to be 30 minutes away from the hotel. And I don't eat pasta." Reported by LON EUBANKS / Los Angeles Times

Tuesday was judgment day for the Mighty Ducks and the suspensions to Ruslan Salei, Pascal Trepanier and Jim McKenzie were severe indeed for their rough play Saturday against the Dallas Stars. Colin Campbell, NHL director of hockey operations, suspended Salei for 10 games for his shove from behind that sent Dallas' Mike Modano crashing headfirst into the boards. Trepanier received a five-game suspension for delivering an elbow to the head of Joe Nieuwendyk on a hard check against the boards.

Stu Grimson once punched another player's head so hard that the guy's leg broke. Must have been some punch. Asked if he'd ever hurt someone during an on-ice fight, Jim McKenzie nodded gravely. "Oh, yeah," he said, whispering so no one else in the Mighty Duck dressing room could hear. "Ever been hurt?" he was asked. McKenzie shook his head slowly, then rapped his huge knuckles on the wooden base of his locker stall. Meet two of the NHL's best, most accomplished enforcers, if you dare.
