Paul Kariya's first game at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim since he left the Mighty Ducks as a free agent last summer was the perfect occasion for fans to vent 51 games' worth of frustration. Fans booed the Colorado Avalanche's team bus when it pulled into the parking lot Friday. They booed Kariya when he skated toward the bench during warmups. They booed Kariya and Teemu Selanne each time either winger touched the puck during the game.

DETROIT -- Joe Louis Arena isn't the haunted house in which the Ducks have spent many a torturous night. They've got four wins against the Detroit Red Wings in their last five playoff games there, and since the perennially strong Red Wings can't sell out any home playoff games, much less their season opener Wednesday night, the Ducks might as well feel downright comfortable in what were once hostile surroundings. Not so fast.

The hockey world was in shock when eighth-seeded Vancouver took a 2-0 lead over Detroit in their best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series. Watching the Canucks win consecutive games at Joe Louis Arena was especially tough on Red Wing fans, who booed or jeered Scotty Bowman's team throughout the last period of Detroit's 5-2 Game 2 loss last week. Detroit's fans shouldn't be so fickle. The Red Wings won this season's President's Trophy because they were the league's best team.

If no one outside the Kings' locker room believed they could upset the Detroit Red Wings and win their first-round playoff series, they didn't care. "We're the only ones that matter. We've got to play the games," defenseman Aaron Miller said. "After the first two games, we knew we couldn't win playing that way. We made some changes, and they've worked. "I'm sure there are still people out there who don't think we can win. There's still a lot of work to do, but I like the way we're playing."

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.
