The sight of Scott Niedermayer holding Lord Stanley's Cup high into the air was nothing new, especially to his younger brother. Before this week, Scott had done it three times, each time becoming a brighter star, and Rob each time returning to his own NHL career, forging his own reputation as a gritty player. "I've played for it three times and, you know, I wasn't able to touch it," said Rob, a forward who in his 13-year career had chased the Cup with the Florida Panthers and the Ducks in 2003.

What began as the germ of an idea, two brothers pursuing a jointly held dream of winning the Stanley Cup together, took a firmer grip overseas in an unlikely spot, the Czech Republic. It was 2004. Scott and Rob Niedermayer were far away from their roots in British Columbia, helping lead Canada to a gold medal at the world championships. This represented a rare, treasured opportunity for the brothers to play together. They relished those games in Prague and so the Niedermayers started discussing an extended partnership.

ST. LOUIS -- It was all quiet in the dressing room of the Ducks on Tuesday night, but it wasn't necessarily a place of solitude. Not only did the Ducks get blitzed by Paul Kariya, their onetime franchise player, in a 4-2 victory by the St. Louis Blues, but they continued to feel the pain beyond the scoreboard at Scottrade Center.

DALLAS -- Ducks right wing Rob Niedermayer did not play in Tuesday night's Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series against Dallas because of concussion-like symptoms that put his status in doubt for the rest of the series. The symptoms resulted from a hit Niedermayer took at the 12-minute 22-second mark of the third period of the Ducks' 5-2 loss in Game 2 on Saturday.

Rob Niedermayer, a restricted free-agent center, re-signed with the Florida Panthers, agreeing to a three-year contract. . . . The Pittsburgh Penguins remain at least $3 million shy of the demands of forward Petr Nedved, who is threatening to play in the Czech Elite League. Nedved is seeking $18.5 million to $19 million over five years.

Scott and Rob Niedermayer may be Anaheim's feel-good story of the playoffs, but a couple of Red Wings players feel less than warm and fuzzy about the brothers. Detroit's veteran goaltender Dominik Hasek, for example, made it clear Monday that he thought Rob Niedermayer shoved him across the goal line and into the net in the third period of Game 2 on Sunday. The problem, from Hasek's point of view, was that the puck -- shot by the Ducks' Travis Moen -- was lodged in his equipment at the time.

Because the Mighty Ducks have made payroll reduction a priority, forward Rob Niedermayer easily could have thought he would be one of the odd men out this off-season. But the Ducks consider Niedermayer a keeper and they signed him on Saturday to a one-year contract reportedly worth $2.1 million. "Rob Niedermayer is the classic example of how we want to play," said interim General Manager Al Coates. "He is a physical forward with size who really can skate and forecheck."

Forward Rob Niedermayer was direct and to the point. "You don't have to come and talk to me about this anymore," Niedermayer said as reporters approached him after Tuesday's practice. Translation: Niedermayer's groin injury was fine and he will be in the lineup tonight, when the Ducks play Minnesota in the Arrowhead Pond. Niedermayer pronounced himself fit after waiting a few extra days to make sure his leg had completely healed.

Rob Niedermayer isn't sure where he plays on the second line for the Mighty Ducks. And that is just fine with him. The veteran forward came up as a center 11 years ago with the Florida Panthers and he spent the majority of training camp at that spot after playing right wing under former coach Mike Babcock. But there he was back on the wing Wednesday in the third period of the Ducks' season-opening 5-3 win over Chicago.

Fans at the Honda Center on Friday night got to see something out of Samuel Pahlsson and Rob Niedermayer that hasn't happened in months. Normally counted on to prevent the league's top forwards from scoring, Pahlsson and Niedermayer were the ones that delivered in the clutch as they teamed on Pahlsson's overtime goal in the Ducks' 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues.

If Rob and Scott Niedermayer didn't get along so well, if they had developed a sibling rivalry while growing up in Cranbrook, Canada, Scott wouldn't have packed his three Stanley Cup rings and left New Jersey to share a locker room and a car pool with the brother who is 16 months his junior. That they like each other might be the luckiest break the Ducks have ever gotten.

In a split second, on the unlikeliest of shots, a long night of frustration for the Ducks instantly turned into elation. Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo had stopped nearly every kind of shot imaginable in more than 80 minutes Thursday night. But it was a long, unscreened shot from the blue line by Scott Niedermayer, a shot that Luongo usually eats up without much effort, that propelled the Ducks into the Western Conference finals.

Scott Niedermayer leaned over the boards while sitting on the Mighty Ducks' bench Wednesday night. Jeff Friesen had scored an empty-net goal seconds before to cap a 3-0 victory over Calgary that pushed the Ducks into the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. On the bench, players were celebrating. Not Niedermayer, who had a look of an adult trying to remember how to do algebra. "I was happy," Niedermayer said Thursday, smiling. "That's just my makeup. I don't get too excited either way.

Mighty Duck General Manager Brian Burke vowed that the team would be aggressive on the ice. In an unprecedented time of NHL free agency, he showed it would be just as active off of it by landing the game's best defenseman. The Ducks were bystanders in this week's shopping frenzy until they signed former New Jersey Devil star Scott Niedermayer to a four-year, $27-million contract Thursday and pried the reigning Norris Trophy winner away from a team he helped lead to three Stanley Cup titles.

Many of the faces have changed in the four years since the last playoff series between the Ducks and the Minnesota Wild, but the reality is that nothing has changed. When it comes to the postseason, the Ducks seem to own the Wild, and they're on the verge of digging the broom out of the closet.
