John LeClair practiced with the Philadelphia Flyers, ending a nine-day holdout without a new deal but with confidence he would get one. "I expect it'll get done as soon as possible," said LeClair, one of the league's most undervalued players after signing a $7-million, five-year contract in 1995. . . .

Ducks tonight VS. DALLAS When: 7. Where: Honda Center. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 830. Records: Ducks 35-31-8, Stars 33-28-14. Record vs. Stars: 1-3-0. Update: The Ducks' pregame tribute to Teemu Selanne's 600th goal will start shortly after 7, with the opening faceoff at 7:12. Center Ryan Getzlaf (ankle sprain) is questionable, as is defenseman Aaron Ward (bruised foot). Dallas, like the Ducks, looks like an also-ran for the postseason but is coming off a 4-1 victory over the Kings.

The U.S. men's hockey team, on home ice for the first time in the Olympics since the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" at Lake Placid, will play the late game tonight, facing off against Finland and Teemu Selanne, the former Ducks' star now with the San Jose Sharks. Herb Brooks, the same U.S. coach as in 1980, will have a vastly different team to send out, all drawn from the professional ranks of the NHL.

Some Dallas Stars will be wearing home uniforms again in Minnesota, this time as NHL All-Stars rather than North Stars. Dallas forwards Mike Modano and Bill Guerin and goaltender Marty Turco were elected Thursday to the starting lineup for the Western Conference. The game will be played Feb. 8 in Minnesota, the former home of the North Stars, who moved to Dallas for the 1993-94 season. They were replaced in 2000 by the Wild, hosts of the league's 54th All-Star game.

DALLAS -- Detroit's goal with a guy barely in the crease, if at all, didn't count. Dallas' goal with a guy clearly in the crease did count. Apparently, that's what it takes to slow the Red Wings. Loui Ericksson's goal about 12 minutes after Detroit's was waved off, and third-period goals from Mike Modano and Brenden Morrow sent the Stars past the Red Wings, 3-1, on Wednesday night, preventing the Western Conference finals from ending in a sweep. Game 5 is Saturday at Detroit.
