During a lull on a train from Amsterdam to Paris, it hit me. A group of Canadian backpackers was chatting with the Belgian conductor, and inevitably the subject of Canada's southern neighbor arose. The predictable sighs about American foreign policy were balanced by compliments about Americans' general good-heartedness -- until one of the Canadians offered a scalding criticism of American tourists' wardrobes. "Oh, please," I thought. "As if Winnipeg's such a fashion capital. " Then I looked down.

VANCOUVER, Canada - It was a bold stroke by Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau, putting 20-year-old John Gibson in goal for his NHL debut Monday night with a division title in the balance. Sixty complete minutes of hockey later by Gibson and his teammates, Boudreau's move looked like his most brilliant of the season as the Ducks defeated the Vancouver Canucks, 3-0, at Rogers Arena. Gibson, with 18 saves, became the youngest goalie since Daren Puppa 29 years ago to post a shutout in his NHL debut, as a Ducks' defense Boudreau referred to as "spotty" during Monday's morning skate rose up to protect the youngster with 22 blocked shots.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Three games remaining in the regular season on the yellow brick road to the playoffs, and the Kings finally catch a break in the schedule. They don't play again until Wednesday. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is always mulling schedules and timetables - maybe it's the lasting influence of his early farm years - and he pondered what to do during the three days between games. One consideration was having a mini-camp in scenic Banff, Alberta, before Wednesday's game at Calgary.

VANCOUVER, Canada - This had the feel of a nicely paced scrimmage between the Kings and the Canucks with not much on the line. Then came the third period and an intense hockey game suddenly erupted on Saturday night at Rogers Arena. Kings defenseman Matt Greene got hit with a puck and his skate was soon bloodied. He left the game, came back to play and watched his team lose it with 1:23 remaining as Brad Richardson, the former King, gave the Canucks a 2-1 win and helped Vancouver avoid official playoff elimination.

NHL trade deadline day was widely expected to be busy. The day before might prove to be even wilder. Several big-name hockey players were on the move Tuesday, 24 hours before time for dealing runs out, including star goalie Roberto Luongo , who was ushered out of Vancouver and sent back to Florida eight years after he was sent packing. The Panthers, on their way to missing the playoffs for the 13th time in 14 seasons, dealt goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias to the Canucks for Luongo and forward Steven Anthony . "We're getting a great goaltender, a proven commodity," Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon said.
