STREAKS STOPPED
Detroit's nine-game playoff winning streak was halted with a 3-1 loss to Dallas in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday night. The Red Wings lost for the first time since April 16, ending the streak that was the franchise's longest in a single postseason. Goalie Chris Osgood allowed one goal less than he had in the previous three games combined.

LONG TIME COMING
Loui Eriksson's goal during the second period of Wednesday night's 3-1 win over Detroit gave Dallas its first lead in 219 minutes, 37.3 seconds.

DISCLOSED
Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday that the contract extension given to forward Chuck Kobasew on Tuesday was for three years. Kobasew had career highs of 22 goals, 17 assists and 39 points in 73 regular-season games this season, but missed the playoffs with a broken left leg.

ANTOHER DISAPPOINTMENT
Sami Lepisto's goal at 3:59 of overtime led Finland to a 3-2 victory over the United States on Wednesday night in the world hockey quarterfinals. The loss marked the seventh time in the last nine years the U.S. team failed to advance past the quarterfinals. Buffalo's Derek Roy scored three goals and added an assist to help defending-champion Canada rout Norway 8-2.

SPEAKING
``That's a reputation call, totally. Kelly (Sutherland) is a good referee. He just blew the call. That's life.'' - Detroit coach Mike Babcock after an apparent goal by Pavel Datsyuk was disallowed goal during the first period of Wednesday night's 3-1 loss to Dallas in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. It was ruled that Tomas Holmstrom's backside interfered with Stars goalie Marty Turco in the crease.
