The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the hip hotel that claims to foster "just the right amount of wrong," is giving away free Wednesday night stays -- for those who act fast. The online flash sale started about five minutes ago (as in 6 a.m. Wednesday -- that's today) and ends in 24 hours. So ask yourself: Could Wednesday be the new Friday? The deal: Wednesdays on Us is just that, a free night's stay at the Cosmopolitan with the purchase of a room on Tuesday or Thursday. Guests must pay in full and in advance, and no refunds if you change your mind.

DALLAS - It's not just about getting under the Ducks' skin with the Dallas Stars, it's about penetrating their minds. The evidence includes Antoine Roussel's Game 3 punch directed at Ryan Getzlaf's cut-up face, Ryan Garbutt's slide that broke the right leg of Ducks defenseman Stephane Robidas, and Stars Coach Lindy Ruff's endorsement of the roughness. “A couple of scrums that, I'm pretty sure if you watch, our guys got punched in the face a few times … when you're getting punched in the face, you're going to punch back … playoff hockey's emotional,” Ruff said after Dallas' 3-0 victory that cut the Ducks' Western Conference first-round best-of-seven series lead to 2-1. After losing the first two games, the Stars clearly displayed their desperation mode in a 17-penalty battle, and now it's the Ducks' turn to answer in Game 4 on Wednesday at American Airlines Center.

It's been a rough week. A few days ago, at UCLA's Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, 6-year-old Jani toppled a food cart and was confined to her room. She slammed her head against the floor, opening a bloody cut that sent her into hysterics. Later, she kicked the hospital therapy dog. Jani normally likes animals. But most of her animal friends -- cats, rats, dogs and birds -- are phantoms that only she can see. January Schofield has schizophrenia. Potent psychiatric drugs -- in doses that would stagger most adults -- seem to skip off her. She is among the rarest of the rare: a child seemingly born mentally ill. She suffers from delusions, hallucinations and paroxysms of rage so severe that not even her parents feel safe.

You'd think giving away books would be an easy thing to do, but Melissa Eggerling tries to put a lot of creativity and a bit of theater into the act. On Wednesday, Eggerling will be one of 800 Southern Californians participating as "givers" in World Book Night, a program designed to distribute free books to people who might not read them otherwise. Last year Eggerling and her two young sons took boxes filled with the novel "Fahrenheit 451" and distributed them from a Los Angeles city fire truck in Eagle Rock.

CLIPPERS AT PORTLAND Where: Moda Center. When: 7:30. On the air: TV: ESPN, Prime Ticket; Radio: 980. Records: Clippers 56-24; Trail Blazers 53-28. Update: Portland is locked in as the fifth-seeded team in the Western Conference and will open the playoffs on the road against the Houston Rockets. The Trail Blazers have gone 8-1 since LaMarcus Aldridge returned from a back injury. They could rest several starters against the Clippers in a game that will not affect their playoff positioning.

Blake Griffin might have made one decision unnecessary for Clippers Coach Doc Rivers. Griffin picked up his 16th technical foul late in the second quarter of a 117-105 win over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday when he aggressively swiped at Timofey Mozgov, hitting the center in the head as he drove toward the basket. NBA rules stipulate that players are suspended for one game after collecting 16 technical fouls, meaning that Griffin would be forced to sit out the Clippers' regular-season finale against Portland on Wednesday unless his latest technical is rescinded.

Among the three goalies the Western Conference top-seeded Ducks can choose to start Wednesday in their Stanley Cup playoff opener against the Dallas Stars, the one with the most wins doesn't expect to be in net. Jonas Hiller, who went 29-13-7 for the Ducks (54-20-8) but lost his final three games, was last off the ice at Monday's practice and was passed over in favor of 20-year-old rookie John Gibson on Sunday in what was a meaningless game in the standings. “I've had some sleepless nights … I've not been the happiest guy in the world to be around lately.

Eleven months and one unusual surgery later, it's the return of Josh Beckett. Barring something unexpected, Beckett will make his season debut Wednesday night against the Detroit Tigers. No small order -- he is essentially replacing Clayton Kershaw in the rotation. “He looks like the guy,” said Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly. Beckett has seen his comeback from summer surgery to remove a rib that was pressuring a nerve and causing finger numbness pushed back by a pair of recent injuries.
