Goaltender Ed Belfour, third in career victories with 484 and twice a winner of the Vezina trophy as the NHL's top goalie, was elected in his first year of eligibility and said he was "just flabbergasted. " He began his career with the Blackhawks and called his trade from Chicago to San Jose after a contract dispute "the worst day of my career," yet went on to win the Stanley Cup with Dallas in 1999.

Perhaps playing a hunch, Coach Pat Burns put Oleg Tverdovsky back into the New Jersey Devils' lineup Tuesday night. "It's a challenge for him, I think, with his ex-teammates," Burns said of the former Mighty Duck defenseman, acquired last summer in the trade that also brought Jeff Friesen to the Devils and sent Petr Sykora to the Ducks. Tverdovsky was grateful for the chance to play in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time.

Joe Nieuwendyk scored three goals as the Dallas Stars sent the New York Rangers to their longest road winless streak in 16 seasons with a 6-1 victory Sunday at Dallas. Ranger Coach Ron Low shuffled lines in an effort to spark his reeling team, but the changes had little effect as New York fell to 1-8-1 in its last 10 games.
