STOCKHOLM - Elena Radionova led a Russian sweep of the top three in the short program at the European figure skating championships on Thursday, in a performance she said was something of an emotional watershed.I really had fun. It was the first time I really had so much fun with what I was doing, she said.Elizaveta Tuktamysheva trailed by less than 1.5 points, and Anna Pogorilaya was another three points back.All were well ahead of fourth-place Kiira Korpi of Finland.Frances Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron won the ice dancing with a free dance program to a Mozart piano concerto. Last years champions, Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, won silver and Russias Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin were third.Radionova, the Grand Prix Final silver medallist last month, landed the opening part of her triple lutz-triple toeloop combination uncertainly, but the rest of her program featured light landings and ended with a fast and flexible layback spin to lively, syncopated Spanish dance music.All three Russians completed three triples.Tuktamysheva, the Grand Prix Final champion, did her triple-triple combination as two toeloops, with a lower base value than Radionovas combo, but she added value by doing a double axel with one arm raised toward the rafters.Unlike Radionova, Tuktamysheva said she wasnt quite in the zone psychologically for her skate to Ravels Bolero.Emotionally, I dont know how much it was visible, but I felt like I wasnt as emotional as I could have been. Maybe the music was a little quiet, so I didnt have so much fun, she said. Spectators see if youre just working.Pogorilaya, however, said she was surprisingly relaxed for her first appearance in the European champs. It was like it all went by in one breath, she said.Radionova had a more sober-sided view: This is my first European championships ... I approach it with a lot of responsibility, she said.Tuktamysheva has been landing a triple axel in practice, but doesnt appear ready to try it in competition during the free skate on Saturday.Its a very difficult jump, technically and emotionally, she said.Papadakis and Cizerons free dance was both precise and romantic, ending as a long rotational lift segued into choreographed spins, the couple going around and around as if dizzied with desire.The gold in Stockholm comes after three Grand Prix wins, a record that Cizeron said has been a big surprise to us. Our goals were a lot less than what we did this season.Cappellini and Lanotte skated to Camille Saint-Saens Danse Macabre, and captured its airs both of comic mischief and elegance. Their straight line lift saw Cappellini jutting off Lanottes leg like a ships figurehead.After a season troubled by uncertainty and program changes, the Italian couples silver is really worth gold, Cappellini said. We really had a period of self-doubt.Stepanova and Bukin, in their first European championships, skated to an extended improvisation of Eleanor Rigby that went from melancholy to jazzy. They benefited from the troubles of compatriots Elena Ilinykh and Ruslan Zhiganshin, who dropped to fourth after placing second in the short dance.

DETROIT -- Mike Babcock insisted being a lame-duck coach next season for the Detroit Red Wings would not be a problem for him. Babcock has one year left on his contract, and told reporters on Tuesday that getting a new deal this off-season is not a priority. "When youre at the stage of my career that I am, Im real comfortable with whatever they want," he said. "I want them to be happy. If theyre not happy, then Im not happy. "I can go year to year." Babcock finished his ninth season as Detroits coach on Saturday at Boston, where the Bruins eliminated the Red Wings in Game 5 of their first-round series. He has won a franchise-record 415 games, a Stanley Cup and a pair of conference championships. He led Canada to a second straight Olympic gold medal earlier this year. "If you put down a list of the best coaches in the National Hockey League, hes on that short list," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. Holland said he has not begun talking to Babcock about negotiating a long-term deal. The Red Wings have Holland under contract for one more year with a team option for another year, and he is "assuming" to have talks with ownership about his future with the franchise this summer. Detroits decision-makers will also have some other topics to ponder, heading into the NHL draft in June and free agency in July. Daniel Alfredsson might be the only unrestricted free agent the team wants to re-sign. TThe 41-year-old forward chose to chase a Stanley Cup with a one-year deal after spending his entire career with the Ottawa Senators.dddddddddddd Alfredsson, though, is not sure if he wants to return or retire. "Its going to be at least a few weeks," he said. "You need time to get away from it. Ill talk to Kenny and Babcock later this week. Both sides want to know what the other side is thinking." Unrestricted free agents David Legwand, Dan Cleary, Mikael Samuelsson, Jonas Gustavsson, Kyle Quincey and Todd Bertuzzi may have to continue their careers elsewhere. The 39-year-old Bertuzzi said he definitely does not want to retire if Detroit decides to let him hit the market. "Id like to keep playing," he said. "I still feel like I can contribute." The Red Wings are counting on their two stars, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk, to contribute more than they did during injury-shortened seasons. Zetterberg expects to return 100-per cent healthy after having back surgery two months ago. Datsyuk said he will soon find out if he needs to have surgery on his left knee. "A healthy Pav and Z makes everyone else score more," Babcock said. "Z came back for two games (in the playoffs) and suddenly we have a power play. We didnt have a power play till that. To me those are the guys capable if healthy that can make everyone else around them better." ' ' '
