Is Wayne Gretzky telling the truth about his involvement in the NHL gambling controversy? I'm glad Wayne Gretzky didn't appear on the old TV show, "To Tell the Truth." The celebrity guest had to tell the truth, while two impostors could lie when questioned about their work ethic. Gretzky would have cheated, and lied, just as he's doing now.

Maple Leafs (44-29-11)vs. Kings (39-35-10)Season series: Maple Leafs, 2-1-1Maple Leafs outlook: Toronto is seeking its first Stanley Cup since 1967 and is in its first semifinal since 1978. C Doug Gilmour (six goals, 16 assists in playoffs) has done everything the Maple Leafs possibly could ask -- score, check and lead -- and could spend a lot of time matched up against Wayne Gretzky's line after defusing the Red Wings' Steve Yzerman in the opening round. Rookie G Felix Potvin has played like a veteran and been supported by an unheralded but reliable defense and good checking by the forwards -- a trademark of coach Pat Burns.

Washington has played better in losses to Buffalo and Pittsburgh, but has not put together a solid game. Peter Bondra, the man the Caps are depending on for consistent scoring, has three goals but has been shut out in four of the team's six games. C Joe Juneau (bruised nerve in leg)
