Monday, June 4
Anaheim at Ottawa (8 p.m. EST). The Senators can get even with the Ducks with a win at home in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger became the third player to be suspended in the finals, receiving a one-game suspension Sunday by NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell. Campbell had previously suspended Detroit defensmen Jiri Fischer one game in 2002 for cross-checking Carolina forward Tommy Westlund and Calgary forward Ville Nieminen one game for a hit from behind on Tampa Bay center Vincent Lecavalier in 2004. Pronger is also the third to be banished twice in one playoff year.
The NHL Players' Association named Dallas center Eric Lindros, Edmonton forward Shawn Horcoff and Washington defensman Bryan Muir to an advisory committee to begin the search for a leader to replace the fired Ted Saskin. The players will meet with heads of unions and corporations for ideas on the qualities they should look for in candidates for the union's top job and then present their findings at an executive board meeting in June.
``You can't get this far unless you're able to take a game - whether it's a win or a loss - and just shove it aside. We'll be OK.'' - Anaheim defenseman Sean O'Donnell. The Ducks, who have yet to lose consecutive games this postseason, look to rebound following a 5-3 loss to Ottawa in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday night. Anaheim holds a 2-1 series lead.
