 SCOREBOARD
Wednesday, May 16
Buffalo at Ottawa (7 p.m. EDT). The Senators can advance to their first Stanley Cup finals with a victory.

STAR
Tuesday
- Tomas Holmstrom, Red Wings, scored twice and added an assist as Detroit blanked Anaheim 5-0 to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.

SHUTOUTS
Detroit's Dominik Hasek made 29 saves for his second shutout of this year's playoffs and 14th of his career, a 5-0 victory over Anaheim on Tuesday night. His eight during this regular season give him a combined 90 in regular-season and postseason play.

HELPER
Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom had two assists in Tuesday night's 5-0 victory over Anaheim, tying Ottawa's Dany Heatley for the postseason lead with 13 assists. The Red Wings lead the Ducks 2-1 in the Western Conference finals.

DEBUTS
Detroit right wing Tomas Kopecky played in his first career postseason game Tuesday night and got called for the first two penalties of the 5-0 victory over Anaheim.

SNAPPED
Tomas Holmstrom's power-play goal in the first period of Detroit's 5-0 victory Tuesday night was the first the Ducks have allowed at home in these playoffs after killing off their previous 33 short-handed situations.

CHARMED?
The Senators are trying to become the third straight Canadian team to reach the Stanley Cup finals and first to win the title since Montreal in 1993. Ottawa leads Buffalo 3-0 in the Eastern Conference finals with Game 4 at home Wednesday night.

POWER OUTAGE
Anaheim is 0-for-31 on the power play over its last five games, including 0-for-4 in a 5-0 loss to Detroit on Tuesday night that left the Ducks trailing the Western Conference finals 2-1.

BANGED UP
Detroit forward Tomas Holmstrom needed 13 stitches to his forehead Tuesday night after he was slammed into the glass by Anaheim's Rob Niedermayer and Chris Pronger during the second period of Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. Holmstrom, who scored in the first and second periods of the 5-0 victory, took stitches to close two cuts and returned for the start of the third period.

SPEAKING
``We could curl up and cry about it and go home. Or we could fight like dogs.'' - Buffalo co-captain Chris Drury on being down 3-0 to Ottawa in the Eastern Conference finals.
