"The Mighty Ducks" hews to its formula with such Zen purity it's amazing; indeed, that commitment to unoriginality is the most impressive thing about it.They've been making this one since the mid-'70s, when they called it "The Bad News Bears." This time, they're making it about pee-wee hockey, with a listless subtext involving self-forgiveness and redemption. Yet, as machine-made as it surely is, somehow the thing isn't quite as bad as it should be.Emilio Estevez was born for this role. He's got the natural smugness of a man who absolutely knows he'll never lose his hair.

The moviemakers behind "Crooked Arrows" take square aim at making a "Mighty Ducks with lacrosse. " Is it fair to say a film hits the bull's-eye when the target is so easy? You wish this movie had focused on its fresh material about lacrosse's Native American roots and ditched its dark-horse cliches. Screenwriters Todd Baird and Brad Riddell bank that familiarity will breed affection rather than contempt. They adhere so strictly to the teen-sports genre that audiences can predict every turn as the struggling team from the Sunaquot reservation in upstate New York (a fictional seventh part of the Haudenosaunee, or Iroquois, Nations)

The first exhibition game of the new kids in town, the Baltimore Bandits, will be Wednesday on the road against the vaunted Hershey Bears. Three days later, the teams will do it here. Just like the old days.Two weeks from tomorrow, it's the American Hockey League opener at the Arena against another new AHL entry, the Carolina Monarchs (cue the trumpets).Try as they might, though, the Bandits are having problems thinking about the neutral-zone trap and the power play. No wonder. The first thing resembling a full practice won't be for a couple more days.

The Philadelphia 76ers are named after the year the Americans declared independence, and the San Francisco 49ers are a reminder of the California gold rush. And several German soccer clubs include the year of their founding in their names: TSV 1860 Munich, Hannover 96, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, FC Schalke 04 and FSV Mainz 05. So, what could be wrong with the transplanted San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer adopting the nickname Houston 1836 to honor the year the Texas city was founded?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Throughout this postseason, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks have been on a steep learning curve in playoff hockey. Last night, however, they were taken to school. The New Jersey Devils taught the Ducks a graduate course in defensive hockey in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals with a convincing 3-0 victory. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series will be in New Jersey tomorrow night before the series moves to Anaheim. "You can see [the Ducks] had a little rust on their blades," New Jersey coach Pat Burns said in reference to Anaheim's long layoff after sweeping its Western Conference final series against Minnesota.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - So which team will the New Jersey Devils join in the history books? Will it be the 1965 Montreal Canadiens, who won all four home games in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Chicago Blackhawks and remain the last team to win a Cup without winning a game on the road? Or will it be the 1971 Blackhawks, the only team to win their first three home games of the Finals and then lose Game 7 at home - also against the Canadiens? That question will be answered tonight when the Devils try again to win their third Stanley Cup in nine years when they face the resilient Anaheim Mighty Ducks at Continental Airlines Arena.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - This fairytale season, appropriately produced by Disney, continues for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, and they just might have found the inspiration needed to carry them in Game 7. Anaheim captain Paul Kariya, who was creamed by Scott Stevens' hellacious shoulder check in the second period, astonishingly returned minutes later and essentially put the game away with a goal minutes after that as the Mighty Ducks beat the New Jersey Devils, 5-2,...

ANAHEIM, Calif. - While playing on their home ice at Continental Airlines Arena, the New Jersey Devils look every bit like the Stanley Cup champions they are one victory away from becoming. With Thursday's 6-3 triumph over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in Game 5, the Devils improved their home record this postseason to 11-1. But on the road, the Devils look more like a team hoping to make the playoffs. With losses in games 3 and 4, New Jersey is a very pedestrian 4-6 on the road in the postseason.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - After watching the Anaheim Mighty Ducks sleepwalk through games 1 and 2, most NHL observers felt the New Jersey Devils would fly to Southern California, win two easily and depart with a championship. But, suddenly, the Stanley Cup Finals are a best-of-three series. Steve Thomas, the 39-year-old, 19-year veteran who holds the NHL record with 13 regular-season overtime goals, scored 39 seconds into overtime last night, giving the Mighty Ducks a 1-0 victory to tie the series at two games apiece.
