Action: Hockey fans complain they can't see Games1-2 of the Stanley Cup Finals because they can't get OLN. Reaction: Brian Burke, Mighty Ducks general manager, doesn't have it on his regular cable package in Yorba Linda and pays for an upgrade. "But I'm with the commissioner (Gary Bettman) on this," Burke said. "When the NHL signed up with The Deuce (ESPN2) everyone wanted to know why we were on this dinky network. The NHL wound up making The Deuce what it is. This is a good partner for us." A: Burke will meet with goalies Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Ilya Bryzgalov before he decides whether to trade one. R: If the Ducks' Stanley Cup hopes are real, it's hard to see them giving the keys to Bryzgalov. The complication is Giguere's contract. It expires after 2007.
