Don't get him wrong. Scott Gomez appreciates the attention he gets from being the first Latino to play in the 83-year-old National Hockey League, he truly does. It's just that when his name is tossed around with the likes of Jackie Robinson and Willie O'Ree, the New Jersey Devil center gets a tad uncomfortable. "It was a pretty big deal," Gomez said of last year's media frenzy surrounding his ethnicity. "It was bigger than it should have been, maybe."

With a decisive playoff Game 7 between the Kings and San Jose Sharks just a few hours away and the winner getting a spot in the Western Conference finals, talk after the morning skates Tuesday at Staples Center centered on the drama of the situation and how players had envisioned performing in those big games when they were kids. The lone dissenter was Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, who said none of the Game 7s he played in or coached had made strong impressions in his memory and that “either you win four games or you lose four games.” He added: “Game 7s are not that big a deal when you look at it. It's winning the fourth game” that matters.

"We're going to look back and say he was something special. It's a lot of wins, but he's the best there is. This guy might go down as the best ever." Scott Gomez, New Jersey center, after Devil goalie Martin Brodeur extended his NHL record to 10 straight seasons with at least 30 victories Saturday

SAN JOSE - Neatly framed but almost forgotten, a front page from the San Jose Mercury News sits against the wall in a room above the Sharks' practice rink. The newspaper photograph depicts a coach and two players, and the headline is bold: "Contenders for the Cup. " The players are goaltender Arturs Irbe and forward Sergei Makarov and the coach is Kevin Constantine. The year was 1994 and the eighth-seeded Sharks, in only their third season, were the darlings of the NHL for upsetting the No. 1 Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs before losing to the No. 2 Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games.

With the NHL just into the post-Wayne Gretzky era, desperately seeking players to fill his incomparable skates as an icon, ambassador and marketing tool, along comes New Jersey Devil rookie Scott Gomez, offering hope that the future may not be all that bleak. The NHL needs Scott Gomez. It needs this grandson of Mexican immigrants and son of a Colombian mother not because his heritage might attract Latino fans and viewers, although it must reach a more diversified audience in order to thrive.

Scoring slumps are funny things. Unless you happen to be mired in one, as New Jersey Devil winger Scott Gomez was until Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday. Gomez went 12 games without a goal until he received a gift from Colorado Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy in Game 4. Roy misplayed the puck behind his net, Devil winger Jay Pandolfo intercepted it and passed out front to an unmarked Gomez, who tucked it into an open net.

Desperate Mighty Duck fans were waving their giveaway towels in a furious fashion early and often Saturday night, imploring their team to turn its fortunes in the Stanley Cup finals while transforming the Pond into a swirling sea of white. Except for one seat -- in section 206, Row R. Dalia Gomez stood defiantly and pulled out her own rally rag, a red number emblazoned with the New Jersey logo, and went to work when her son, Devil center Scott Gomez, took the ice.

Henrik Lundqvist thought the New York Rangers' winning goal was anything but a thing of beauty. The Ducks were not really sure it should have even counted. Despite the varying opinions, Scott Gomez's chip shot from the side of the net found its way past Jonas Hiller, ending a tie and lifting the Rangers to a 4-2 victory Tuesday night. "It didn't look good," Lundqvist, the Rangers' goaltender, said of his team's power play that somehow clicked twice.
