STAR

STAYING ALIVE

Minnesota avoided a four-game sweep by Anaheim with a 4-1 victory on Tuesday night. Only two teams in NHL history have come back from 3-0 deficits to advance in the playoffs, the 1975 New York Islanders and the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs.

ONE-SIDED SERIES

The New York Rangers took a three games to none lead in their quarterfinal series with Atlanta after a 7-0 rout on Tuesday night. The win was also the first for the Rangers in a home playoff game since 1997.

HOME WOES

Dallas has lost six straight home games - covering its last three postseasons - after a 2-1 defeat to Vancouver on Tuesday night.

UNLIKELY HERO

Ottawa defenseman Anton Volchenkov, who scored only once in 78 games during the regular season, got the game-winning goal midway through the third period to help the Senators edge Pittsburgh 2-1 on Tuesday night. Volchenkov had only one previous playoff goal, four years and a day before scoring his second. He has only nine goals in 229 career regular-season games.

STRONG IN DEFEAT

Kris Draper scored both Detroit goals in Tuesday night's 3-2 loss at Calgary.

JIM DANDY

Carolina signed general manager Jim Rutherford to a five-year contract extension on Tuesday. Rutherford recently completed his 13th season as the franchise's general manager and is the only person to hold that job since the team moved from Hartford, Conn., in 1997. Among current GMs, only New Jersey's Lou Lamoriello has a longer tenure with his team.

SPEAKING

''It shows that a guy like Brad May has no respect, so he deserves no respect from anybody. And that's how he's going to get treated.'' - Minnesota enforcer Derek Boogaard on Anaheim's Brad May, who received a match penalty and a game misconduct for decking Wild defenseman Kim Johnsson with less than two minutes left in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Minnesota won 4-1 to avoid getting swept in the quarterfinal series.
