 SCOREBOARD
Tuesday, June 5
No games scheduled.

STAR
Monday
-Andy McDonald, Ducks, had two goals and an assist to lead Anaheim to a 3-2 victory over Ottawa and a 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup finals.

SITTING OUT
Ottawa forward Dean McAmmond, knocked out in the third period of Saturday night's 5-3 victory over Anaheim when Chris Pronger flattened him with a straight elbow, was scratched from Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night. The Ducks won 3-2 to take a 3-1 series lead.

GOOD SIGN
Anaheim is 7-0 in clinching games, including 3-0 this year, and 5-0 in the finals at home. The Ducks will attempt to win their first Stanley Cup with a Game 5 victory Wednesday against Ottawa.

TIGHT
Anaheim's 3-2 victory over Ottawa in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night was its 12th one-goal win of the postseason, tying the NHL mark.

SWINGS
Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson, playing in his 98th consecutive playoff contest with the Senators, scored for the second straight game Monday night - his NHL-leading 12th of the playoffs - after being blanked twice in Anaheim. The goal, with less than a second left in the first period, wasn't enough as the Ducks won 3-2 to move within one victory of their first championship.

SLOW START
Anaheim's two shots in the first tied the franchise low for a playoff period, set in the second period of Game 2 of the 2003 finals in New Jersey. The Ducks beat Ottawa 3-2 to take a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals.

DOING FINE
Anaheim is 8-7-3 without defenseman Chris Pronger, including 2-0 in the playoffs after suspensions, following Monday night's 3-2 victory over Ottawa that moved the Ducks within one victory of their first championship.

TUNING OUT
Ottawa's 5-3 victory over Anaheim in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday night received a 1.5 overnight rating and a 3 share on NBC, down 12 percent from the 1.7/3 for Edmonton's 2-1 win over Carolina in Game 3 last year.

COMING BACK
Vancouver re-signed forward Taylor Pyatt to a two-year, $3 million contract Monday. Pyatt, 25, set career highs with 23 goals and 37 points in 76 games while making $700,000 last season and could have become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

SPEAKING
``You can probably figure out what I thought. I wasn't happy. No need to get hit with a puck at that point. I'm not going to say anything more.'' - Anaheim defenseman and captain Scott Niedermayer after being hit by a shot from Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson in the final seconds of the second period Monday night. The Ducks won 3-2 to give them a chance to clinch the Stanley Cup with one more victory.
