Knowing that defenseman Donald Dufresne needed to play at least one game in the finals to get his name on the Stanley Cup, Canadien Coach Jacques Demers inserted Dufresne into Wednesday's lineup and took out Kevin Haller. "My biggest worry was that I didn't want the Kings to get the impression that we thought we had won the series and so were making changes," he said.

The Kings began searching for defensive help after losing defenseman Donald Dufresne to the St. Louis Blues in Wednesday's NHL waiver draft. Dufresne, who was acquired from Tampa Bay for a sixth-round draft pick last March, was scoreless in nine games last season. He would have been the Kings' seventh defenseman, and his departure leaves them with no spares.

The rift between New York Islander General Manager Mike Milbury and holdout center Travis Green is near the point of no return. After Tuesday night's 2-0 exhibition loss to the New Jersey Devils in Uniondale, N.Y., Milbury, who had offered Green a three-year deal averaging $1.2 million, said Green requested a trade, something the player denies. "I never asked to be traded," Green, 25, said. "It's obvious that Mike's playing hardball. He's not telling the truth.

King Coach Larry Robinson has run out of ways to express his exasperation, but his team apparently hasn't run out of ways to squander leads and rack up dismal road losses. Unaccountably deflated by a short-handed goal by Edmonton Oiler center Todd Marchant that tied the game at 1 in the first period, the Kings gave an ugly display of ineptitude Wednesday in a 7-2 loss before 13,537 at the Edmonton Coliseum.

There is no Bryan Harvey in this expansion draft. There isn't even a Dmitri Kvartalnov, a late-breaking development that had the hallways of the Loews Concorde buzzing Wednesday afternoon, which tells you everything you need to know about this expansion draft. When the National Hockey League expands, every three months or so, it throws all the big names on the table. Kvartalnov. Suomalainen. Cheveldayoff. Big names, long names, names with many vowels. More vowels than goals, in most cases.

So what if he missed scoring on a breakaway, and later shot wide of an empty net with 12 seconds to play? Wayne Gretzky isn't pursuing only Gordie Howe's all-time goal record of 801. San Jose is in front of him, too, and Gretzky isn't about to let the Sharks escape. The record will fall, eventually. But catching the Sharks is Gretzky's priority, and he helped the Kings take a big step forward with two assists in their 2-1 victory over San Jose on Saturday at the Forum.
