Anaheim showed the hockeyworld the Red Wings are beatable.Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf shareswhat he thinks the Blackhawksmust do to beat the defendingchamps in the Western Conferencefinals, which start today:
1. Play with more energy:
“Chicago, they’re a young energeticteam. That’s what they have to bring. They’re two opposite ends. Detroit isan older, experienced team. Chicagois going to have to use that to itsadvantage and come out hard.”
2. Win the puck-possession battle:
 “It’s all about puck possession andcontrolling that puck against theseguys. If they have the puck all night,(Chicago) is going to be tired out ina hurry chasing them around.”
3. Understand the task:
 “(The Red Wings) are a great team,there’s no doubt about it. Theyprove it every year. … It’s a matterof them staying healthy and doingwhat they want to do.”
— Craig Custance

What it means if theLakers win:
It means, firstof all, that the team willhave avoided anembarrassing collapseagainst the under-manned Rockets. But itwill also mean that theLakers will need toaddress some of theobvious problems thathave sprung up in thisHouston series—thesporadic shooting, thelack of focus andintensity—before theytake on the very hotNuggets.
What it means if theLakers lose:
Disaster.The Lakers haven’t been as deep asexpected, and thatfigures to worsennext season if LamarOdom leaves via freeagency. WithoutOdom, this is prob-ably not a roster thatcan win 60-plusgames, and won’t bethe hands-downfavorite in the West.And, of course, thisquestion will persist:Can Kobe Bryant leadthis team to achampionship?

The pressure’s on
What it means if theCeltics win:
The longerBoston stays alive, thelonger Celtics fans cankeep hope that injuredforward Kevin Garnettwill hobble off theinactive list in time toface Cleveland. It’s aslim chance, and for theguys in green, it doesn’tmatter. “We have a belief in each other,”forward Glen Davissaid. “With Kevin orwithout Kevin, we wantanother championship.
What it means if theCeltics lose:
G.M. DannyAinge starts thinkingabout the future. The big three—Garnett, PaulPierce and Ray Allen—are not getting younger,and injuries will onlycome more frequently. Itwas about 20 years agothat the Celtics had astar trio—KevinMcHale, Larry Bird andRobert Parish—that gotold, and the franchisehit rock bottom in theirwake. These Celticshave more young talent, but it might be time tostart piling up draftpicks.

And don’t be afraid of failure.”

NBA
Magic at Celtics
8 p.m., TNT
A Game 7 win tonight gets either team tothe next round, but the reward is an EasternConference finals matchup against the well-restedCavaliers, who haven’t played since last Monday. The formula is simple for both teams. For Orlando,it’s get the ball to Dwight Howard and get out of the way (as his 23 points and 22 rebounds in Game6 attest). For Boston, it’s let the two healthy mem-bers of the Big Three (Paul Pierce and Ray Allen) dotheir thing and feed off what always is a raucousBoston crowd.
NHL
Blackhawks atRed Wings
3 p.m., NBC
 The Winter Classic at Wrigley Field playedbetween these two teams on Jan. 1 seems solong ago. Detroit was in firm control all gamebefore winning 6-4, and won four of the six gamesbetween the rivals this season. However, Chicagowon the home-and-home set that ended theregular season for both teams, and its young stars,Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Kris Versteegwill give the defending champions as much tocontend with as Anaheim.
BASEBALL
Mets at Giants
8 p.m., ESPN
Matt Cain is a young workhorse who reallyhasn’t gotten his due because of poor run support. Though he’s 3-1 to start this season, you wonderif it’s a matter of time before the Giants’ offenselets him down again. San Francisco is among theleague’s bottom feeders in offense, with BengieMolina accounting for eight of the team’s 20 homeruns (San Diego’s Adrian Gonzalez has 15 by him-self). Cain will have his hands full with the Mets andstarter Mike Pelfrey, who is 4-0 through six starts.
