Can you believe this! The Mighty Ducks won again on Saturday, to take a 2-0 lead in games against the Dallas Stars in the second round of the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It seemed highly unlikely that the Mighty Ducks, who finished seventh in Western conference, would be able to make it out of the first round. Not only did the team sweep the defending Stanley Cup champions in the first round, they have given the Anaheim fans a reason to dig their brooms out of the closet and place them by the front door just in case.

Well, we should not really be surprised at what we witnessed Monday night. Yes, it was just another ho-hum victory for the Mighty Ducks, their 10th victory in 12 post-season games. I have to admit that I have had to pinch myself on occasion to make sure that this is really happening.

It seems only appropriate that the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim face off against the Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. This appears to be a date with destiny. How else can one explain that in the team's third trip to the post season, they will face the same opponent for the third time? As the saying goes, the third time is the charm. In looking at these two teams on paper the edge certainly must go to Detroit. The great thing about sports is that fortunately games are played on the ice and really in the end, the winner is determined by which team makes fewer mistakes.

The Mighty Ducks won again on Saturday and showed their resiliency as they came back against the Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings to take a 2-0 lead into Monday night's first home game. Down a goal with six minutes to play, Jason Krog took a great pass from Rob Niedermayer and walked in alone on goalie Curtis Joseph. Krog went forehand to backhand and lifted one top shelf for the game tying goal. Just as everyone was preparing for another overtime game, the Ducks struck again for the go-ahead goal.

Michael Schulman dons a title most tax attorneys could never dream of: CEO of a National Hockey League franchise. After Henry and Susan Samueli of Broadcom Corp. purchased the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim from Disney Corp. in June, Schulman, the family's tax attorney and overall right-hand man, found himself placed at the helm of the enigmatic hockey franchise. "Am I qualified?" he asked himself with a grin. "Probably not." Of course, Schulman is not in charge of the hockey decisions.

It was a magical year for your Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and in the end I can find no disappointment. The Ducks lost the winner-take-all Game 7 in New Jersey to the Devils, 3-0, and ended the Ducks' improbable run at earning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. The Devils continued the home-ice advantage winning streak, and for the first time in years the home team won all seven games of the series. Next time you hear someone say that it doesn't matter where you finish -- as long as you get into the playoffs you have a chance -- well, the Ducks and their fans will know that in the playoffs, there is no place like home.

There is something special about home ice advantage, isn't there? I had alluded to that earlier on, during the playoffs, and it has certainly come to light here in the Stanley Cup finals. Both teams have played their best games of the series at home, and this has resulted in the home team winning all five of the games to this point.

If there were any doubters of the resiliency of the Mighty Ducks, their questions were answered emphatically in Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals. Believe me, there were and still are many skeptics scattered around North America and Europe who simply don't believe that this is possible. However, these players have shown their mettle time and again, and at this point, nothing will surprise me or those who question this team's destiny. This is quite a statement after witnessing all the moments they have provided me and all of their fans during these last two months of hockey.

The Mighty Ducks are in unfamiliar territory and will have a battle just to get themselves back into this series. The Ducks have had the luxury of gaining early leads in the previous series and were able to capitalize on their momentum.

They will be the top seed and will entertain home ice advantage with game one on Today at the Continental Airlines Arena. The Devils will bring a playoff savvy veteran team, led by defensemen Scott Stevens, Vezina candidate goaltender Marty Brodeur and goal scorers such as Patrick Elias and Joe Niewendyk.
