THE ICE IS FINALLY MELTING. Here it is, the seventh of June, and the ice hockey season is about to end. The Stanley Cup will be settled tonight, in Tampa, (Tampa??) even if it takes a count, a recount, a second recount, and a Supreme Court ruling to settle it. In the north country, the Milwaukee Admirals completed a sweep of the Wilkes-Barre Penguins to win the American Hockey League's Calder Cup, which looks like a hockey trophy, not like something that ought to be placed in the lobby of an office building, its name notwithstanding.
