The faint smell of smoke hangs in the air--traces of wildfires in the mountains to the west--and wisps form a fuzzy halo around the football stadium lights. As the West Rowan Falcons prepare to take the field in a high-stakes game against Central Cabarrus--a victory will give them their first conference championship--senior linebacker James Francis carries more on his shoulders than just his shoulder pads.

Scott Young, acquired this week in a trade with Colorado, has a simple explanation for his lack of production last season with the Avalanche: reduced playing time. "I wasn't prepared to be in that role," said Young, who had 21 goals and 60 points in Colorado's Stanley Cup-winning 1995-96 season but only 18 goals and 37 points last season. "Maybe there's a point where you're willing to accept a lesser role, but it's not right now for me," Young said.

Duck right wing Scott Young has a simple explanation why he scored three goals in the last two games before Monday: His right wrist stopped hurting so much. "It's still not 100%, but it's felt a lot better the last few games," said Young, suffering from tendinitis since Oct. 23. "It was real weak for a while. I'm starting to see some progress with the treatments."

Any time Scott Young forgets about how fun this game can be, he can look at the wall across from his locker stall at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim. There hangs a photo of the Stanley Cup. Around the Cup are four players--all of whom began the season in Anaheim--who were on Cup-winning teams. In the lower right corner is Young, posed with one hand on the Cup and a bottle of champagne in the other. Young knows those days are long gone. His just wants to make things fun again.

Improbable playoff comebacks are becoming a rite of spring for the St. Louis Blues. Scott Young scored three times Sunday and the Blues, trying to match last year's feat of rallying from a 3-1 deficit to win a first-round series, defeated the San Jose Sharks, 6-2, to even their series at 3-3. Game 7 is Tuesday night at St. Louis. Young, who has five goals in the series, opened the scoring in the first period and added two more goals as the Blues took a 6-0 lead midway through the second.
