SURFING THE TUBE.Byline: Tom Hoffarth
In the spirit of MTV's ``Road Rules,'' which is filled with crazy-named kids driving each other crazy, we give you the Kings' season-opening road trip through the Eastern region featuring the trials and tribulations of Luc, Ziggy, Mattias, Jozef, Aki and Stephane. There will, of course, be a TV crew in tow. But after it's done, this will be a bonding experience the gang will remember for the rest of their hockey lives.

It's like, you know, the start of the second season for ABC's dramedy ``Sports Night.'' But after watching three baseball best-of-five playoff series openers, they'd better be dedicating a bunch of time to highlights and less time on those lame off-camera romances. MLB MLB Major League Baseball

After Saturday's Stars-Ducks game, when Mike Modano and Joey Nieuwendyk were sent head-first into the board, Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock promised payback when they meet again in the Ducks' home opener here. ``I think those two players (Ruslan Salei, who decked Modano, and Pascal Trepanier, called for boarding Nieuwendyk) are either the two stupidest players in the league or they just brought themselves a hell of a war,'' Hitchcock said. Hey, guys, keep it clean. A potential new Ducks owner could be watching. NHL: Dallas at Ducks, FSW2, 6:30 p.m.
