A rematch of last year’s StanleyCup finals is just two wins away.Playing without Nicklas Lidstromand Pavel Datsyuk because of injuries, the Red Wings still routedthe Blackhawks 6-1 Sunday andtook control of the WesternConference finals.Wins by Pittsburgh Tuesday andDetroit Wednesday would giveSidney Crosby and the Penguinsanother shot at the Red Wings, whobeat them in six games last year.Both teams look like they’re ready.

QUICK LINKS:Yankees at Rangers
Based on Alex Rodriguez’s .189 battingaverage, the Yankees’ 12-4 record since hisdebut would seem a coincidence. MarkTeixeira’s numbers say otherwise. In 25games before A-Rod, Teixeira hit .198 withfive homers. With A-Rod behind him,Teixeira is hitting .377 with eight homers.After an 8-2 homestand that includedfour walkoff wins, the Yankees start asix-game trip today at Texas. Thefirst-place Rangers have won eightstraight at home and are ready for NewYork. “Playing good teams steps ourgame up,” catcher Jarrod Saltalamac-chia said. “This could be good for us.”
Cardinals at Brewers
What a difference a week makes.Last Monday, the Brewers werefinishing a three-game sweep at St.Louis and dealing the Cardinals theirthird straight series loss. Now theCardinals are hot, having won five of six going into a three-game set atMilwaukee today.The return of ace Chris Carpenterand their starting pitching righted theCardinals. St. Louis starters haveallowed four earned runs total in theirpast six games. “Spectacular, probablythe best (stretch) I’ve ever been in,”Tony La Russa said.
Dodgers at Cubs
The Cubs so need an offensive jolt thatAlfonso Soriano could be playing second base when L.A. arrives for a four-gameweekend series. Last week Lou Piniellacalled the possibility of moving Sorianofrom left “a last resort” to get rookie MicahHoffpauir in the lineup. But after scoringfive runs total while being swept at St.Louis and San Diego, Piniella may beready to erupt. Regulars Milton Bradley,Mike Fontenot and Geovany Soto all entertoday’s play hitting under .210.There’s no relief in sight for Chicago—L.A. has the majors’ best record andleads the N.L. in scoring and ERA.

So much for the shot of the seasondemoralizing the Orlando Magic. The Magic played throughanother MVP night from LeBronJames to beat the Cavs 99-89and take a 2-1 lead in the EasternConference finals.James’ 41 points weren’t enoughSunday, and this series is beginningto look like the Cavs’ failed Finalsrun two years ago, when it was allJames all the time.

A quick look at the best sports on TV
— all times Eastern
LACROSSE
Men’s NCAA championshipSyracuse vs. Cornell
1 p.m., ESPN
It’s hard to imagine a better fit for background noise at yourMemorial Day barbecue than the NCAA title game—even the mostcasual of lacrosse fans knows that Syracuse is, historically, very, verygood. Jim Brown (yes, that Jim Brown), Gary Gait and Mikey Powellare three of the biggest names in the history of the sport, and all are’Cuse alum. The Orange is making its 16
th
championship appearanceand looking for its 10
th
title, but Cornell and freshman attackman RobPannell are in their way. Check out Page 32 for more on the matchup.
BASEBALL
Pirates at Cubs
1 p.m., WGN
 The Pirates avoided a sweep on the South Side of Chicago with aninth-inning rally on Sunday. Despite the dramatics, the fact remains—Pittsburgh had a dismal offensive series against the White Sox, scoringthree runs in three games and wasting quality starts from Zach Dukeand Ross Ohlendorf. Now, at 20-24, they move across town for a serieswith the team directly ahead of them in the N.L. Central—the 21-20Cubs.
BASKETBALL
Lakers at Nuggets
9 p.m., ESPN
So much for Denver’s homecourt advantage—in Game 3, L.A. gotits offense from Kobe Bryant and its late defense from Trevor Arizona,and that turned out to be more than enough. Tonight, the Lakers willtry to go up 3-1 in the series…right around the time Vince McMahonand the WWE set up shop in the Staples Center for their screw-you toNuggets owner Stan Kroenke for booting them in favor of Game 4.

Daly wears pink for Mickelson;Gisele, Brady expecting a child
 John Daly
wore bright pink trousers during Sunday’sfinal round of the BMW PGA Championship in a gestureof support for
Phil Mickelson
’s wife,
Amy
, after she was diag-nosed with breast cancer.“I had a pair, so I figured I’d do that for her today. Ithought it would be a good gesture,” Daly said. “I knowPhil very well and I know Amy. I’ve known them for along time—we’ve played the Tour together. She’s a greatlady. She has always been a sweetheart to everybody.“I’m sure everybody on Tour and everybody in the world isthinking about her. There’s been some (breast cancer) in thefamily and a lot of friends. It’s just a tough thing women haveto go through. But if they caught it in time, it is curable.”
 
It looks as if Patriots QB
Tom Brady
is having another baby with a supermodel, this time with wife
Gisele Bundchen
,29. Reports of Bundchen’s pregnancy were confirmed overthe weekend by
The
 
 Boston Globe
. Brady and Bundchen weremarried in February. Brady, 31, and supermodel
Bridget Moy-nahan
are the parents of 
 John Edward Moynahan
, who is 2 ½ .NFL teams are lining up to make deals with state lot-tery boards. The Patriots and Redskins were the first tosign contracts, but the Giants, Jets, Lions, Vikings, Ravensand Titans also are negotiating to put their names on lot-tery games of chance.Owners gave their approval for teams to put their logos onlottery tickets, in exchange for a piece of the action. While theNFL has sanctioned one form of gambling, it continues tofight Delaware’s attempt to legalize wagering on games.
 
Former major leaguer
 Jim Leyritz
says he has sold off mem-orabilia because he’s broke, halted charity work because he’s become a social pariah and scattered case files throughout hishouse, intent on defeating a DUI manslaughter charge.All of this, the one-time New York Yankee says, for awoman’s death he never could have prevented.“There was no possibility of me avoiding that crash with allof my senses,” Leyritz told
The Miami Herald 
. “A mother wastaken away from her kids. I can’t change that. But I didn’t doit. The accident did. And that accident wasn’t my fault.”Prosecutors say he’s wrong, though he’ll have a chance toplead his case Sept. 14 when he’s scheduled to face trial inconnection with a fatal December 2007 crash. Police sayLeyritz was drunk when he ran a red light in his SUV andcaused the accident that killed 30-year-old
Fredia Ann Veitch
inFort Lauderdale. Authorities say Veitch also was drunk.
