DALLAS - Goaltender Jonas Hiller tried to make the best of the bad situation he had helped create through his shaky play in the last weeks of the regular season, but there were times uncertainty overtook him and despair crept in. He lost his starting job to rookie Frederik Andersen and for a while appeared to have dropped to third on the depth chart behind another rookie, John Gibson. He was the Ducks' forgotten man, left by the wayside as the Ducks forged to the top of the Western Conference and designated Andersen their playoff starter against the Dallas Stars.

SOCHI, Russia -- Finland's men's hockey team had a hard time finding replacements when standout NHL forwards Mikko Koivu of the Minnesota Wild and Valtteri Filppula of the Tampa Bay Lightning had to withdraw because of injuries. The team's first choice as an alternate, Florida Panthers forward Sean Bergenheim, declined the invitation even though it would have been his first Olympic appearance. He told the Miami Herald he thought he'd be better off using the NHL's Olympic break to rest and undergo rehabilitation on an abdominal injury.

NEW YORK - The Angels did not require the services of a closer Friday night. An offense that administered a rare beatdown of starter Hiroki Kuroda and pounded reliever Bruce Billings into submission in a 13-1 shellacking of the New York Yankees - the largest-ever margin of victory for the Angels in Yankee Stadium - made sure of that. The Angels crushed four home runs - a two-run shot to center field by Ian Stewart, a solo shot to left by Albert Pujols, a three-run shot to right-center by Erick Aybar and a solo shot to left by Collin Cowgill - to increase their major league-leading total to 35. With five more games this month, the Angels have broken the franchise record of 34 homers in April, set in 2000.

And on this week's episode of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival ... As attendees happily filed into the Empire Polo Club in Indio on Friday for the second and final weekend of the Goldenvoice-promoted Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, there were a few cliff-hangers left over from last weekend. Among them: Will Pharrell Williams bring out another all-star parade of guest stars? Will every artist on Saturday be in a significantly better mood without the threat of a dust storm?

The NFL is a week away from the start of the regular season, and already the league has blown a major call. It will open the season with replacement officials. League executive Ray Anderson has informed all 32 teams that stand-ins will be on the field starting Sept. 5 when the Dallas Cowboys open at the New York Giants, according to multiple reports. The regular officials have been locked out since June, and negotiations between the NFL and NFL Referees Assn. have stalled.

"We're the world's greatest Replacements cover band," Paul Westerberg cracked as his band took the stage Friday night at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. He may have been joking, but there was more than a little truth to his remark, in part because Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong would arrive a few songs later and take over vocal duties.  On the first day of the second weekend of the desert festival, a number of the marquee acts were seeking to recapture the magic of days gone by, including headliners Outkast.

Join Times staff writers Seema Mehta and Mark Z. Barabak at 9 a.m. Friday to discuss the retirement of Rep. Henry A. Waxman and the political implications of the move as others consider running for his seat. Waxman's retirement creates an exceedingly rare opportunity for politicians to secure an open congressional seat in a strongly Democratic and affluent area. Former Los Angeles Controller Wendy Greuel  has declared her candidacy for the seat and more than half a dozen others are considering bids, with some possibly making their announcements Friday.

Writers from around Tribune Co. discuss how games might be affected if the NFL referee lockout extends into the regular season. Check back throughout the day for their responses and join the conversation with a comment of your own. Matt Vensel, Baltimore Sun As is the case in any profession, you can expect a drop-off when the best in the business are sitting on the sidelines. This applies to NFL referees as much as it does to its starting quarterbacks and skilled workers away from the gridiron - surgeons, master chefs and hair stylists too. But even though the replacement officials aren't likely to butcher the rules like that woman at the hair salon chain at the mall did to my hair last time around, there will be differences - some subtle and some not. The expansion of replay may prevent game-changing missed calls, but veteran NFL official Ed Hochuli says  that replacement officials threw between one and five penalty flags a game in 2001, the last time replacements were used.

There were several mundane but pressing questions facing Paul Westerberg as he sat in a hotel room in Phoenix earlier this week. What was he going to do about the headache that had been bothering him since he got up? And where was he going to get a clean shirt to wear, now that everything he had packed for the road was all grubby? And would either of the above be resolved before he had to go off with the three other members of the Replacements for a promotional visit to a local radio station?

A consultant hired by Los Angeles County to develop a long term plan for the county's aging jail facilities laid out options for a roughly $2-billion proposed overhaul of the county's jail system in a report released Wednesday. Concerned about deteriorating facilities and poor living conditions for inmates with mental health issues, county supervisors want the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles torn down and replaced. Officials are also contemplating creating a new 1,600-bed women's jail at the now-vacant Mira Loma Detention Center in Lancaster, to replace the overcrowded women's jail in Lynwood.

TEHRAN - Iran replaced its top prison administrator Wednesday after public protests alleging excessive violence against inmates at a prison that holds inmates detained for political crimes. The semiofficial Fars News Agency reported that Gholam Hosein Esmaeli was removed from his position as director of the nation's penal system and appointed as head of an appeals court  branch in Tehran. Esmaeli told local media that the change was a promotion and was in no way related to last week's disturbances at the capital's Evin Prison.

Centinela school district officials Tuesday appointed a veteran administrator as interim leader, pending an investigation of Supt. Jose Fernandez, who was paid $674,559 last year. Fernandez was placed on paid leave last week. For now, the Centinela Valley Union High School District will be managed by Bob Cox, who had been serving as the assistant superintendent for human resources. The board announced its action after meeting nearly three hours in closed session. Fernandez's earnings last year to manage a school system of 6,600 students spread across three high schools and two small alternative programs surpassed the compensation of those leading the nation's three largest school systems.

All I heard during the strike was Todd Christensen saying we were watching amateurs. If what I saw last Sunday was the "professional" Raiders, then my early Christmas wish is for the return of the scabs. Maybe if Todd and his friends would watch reruns of the replacement games, it might remind them of what it's like to play with Raider intensity. DEL FREITAS Tulare

The Replacements have matured to the point where their live shows hardly ever collapse into drunken tantrums anymore, but that doesn't mean they have outgrown their capacity for chaos. There were times during their concert Saturday night at UC Irvine's Crawford Hall when the rock band from Minneapolis sounded like a loud, formless, lurching ball of confusion--drums thumping stiffly, guitars scraping and blaring at cross purposes and singer Paul Westerberg barking with all the melodiousness of an overexcited basset hound.

Now the Hollywood Reporter says Sony Pictures is looking to replace Fincher at the helm of its highly anticipated Jobs biopic, based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography "Steve Jobs" with a script by "Social Network" scribe Aaron Sorkin.

At the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department headquarters, a winding hallway leads to an unexpected oasis. Surrounded by trees, with a built-in grill and tables, the patio is an ideal place for a barbecue. Until recently, though, only a select few enjoyed it, smoking cigars and fashioning it into their own private hangout. In his first week as interim sheriff, John Scott announced that the cigar patio, as it was called, would be open to all employees. A contest would be held to choose a new name and smoking would no longer be allowed.
