The Anaheim Ducks took a 3 games to 2 lead over Detroit in the NHL Western Conference finals with a 2-1 overtime win  yesterday. Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek was on his way to a shutout when the Senators scored with 47 seconds left in regulation on a power play with a shot that Hasek said deflected off the stick of his own defenseman. The Ducks can end the series at home in Game 6 tomorrow.

This sets up a potential Anaheim-Ottawa Stanley Cup finals, a matchup that's sure to send the TV ratings through the roof. About the only thing interesting about a Ducks-Senators pairing is that if Ottawa were to prevail, the Senators would be the first Canadian team to win Lord Stanley's silver mug since the 1992-93 Montreal Canadiens.
