The approaching winter and longer nights make this an ideal time to head north to visit one of nature's most amazing phenomena: the northern lights. And one of Canada 's national parks provides several ideal viewing locations within striking distance of creature comforts. Jasper National Park , (780) 852-6176, in west-central Alberta, is officially the largest “dark sky preserve” in the world. Such places - well away from urban lights - provide superb opportunities for stargazing and viewing the aurora borealis.

Just returned from Edmonton, Canada, visiting the new mall (817 shops under one roof). You don't have to pay those $100 a night room rental fees. We stayed at the Relax Inn, 18320 Stony Place Road, Edmonton, Alta. T5S 1A7, close by the mall. It was clean and people were helpful and charming. My single room was $32.95 plus $1.65 tax.

Jack Lazorko spends 11 years in the minor leagues, always hoping for a shot at the majors. He pitched pretty well for the Angels last year and was rewarded with a ticket back to Edmonton. This year he was brought up for two starts, came within two outs of earning a win over Toronto and he wound up back on the one-way to Edmonton. When all those other general managers were in collusion, who was Mike Port talking to--General Noriega? PHIL BARTOLI Manhattan Beach

No one is mentioning 1982. No King dares evoke that sacred memory. The Miracle on Manchester has gone unremarked upon. The obvious similarity between this playoff season and the one five years ago, when the Kings knocked the heavily favored Oilers out in the first round, is that, again, the Kings and the Oilers have split the first two games in the first round. And Edmonton is still heavily favored. The similarities end there, though.

EDMONTON, Canada - Wasted days and wasted nights. It could be that mournful country and western song. Any song about a lost dog, a lost love … or a lost hockey team. The early days of the condensed schedule sent the Kings hopscotching through the West, from Los Angeles to Denver to Edmonton to Glendale, Ariz. They weren't able to leave Edmonton until about 1 a.m., hours after losing 2-1 in overtime to the Oilers. This meant the Kings arrived in Phoenix around 5 a.m. Friday and practice was canceled.

CALGARY, Canada -- The Kings turned their season around and launched themselves on the path to the Stanley Cup when they acquired forward Jeff Carter from Columbus last Feb. 23. This season, he's almost singlehandedly sustaining their hopes of making the playoffs and giving them a chance to defend their title. Trevor Lewis scored the Kings' go-ahead goal against the Flames on Wednesday on the rebound of a shot by Carter, and Carter provided an insurance goal with a shot from the high slot off a pass by Mike Richards at 9:27 of the third period, key elements of the Kings' 3-1 victory over the Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The early demise of highly regarded Washington and Edmonton, while sub-.500 St. Louis and Chicago fight for a berth in the Stanley Cup's final four, is likely to stir up the annual cries to change the playoff format. Actually, Wayne Gretzky fired the first salvo last week, when he complained about the fact that either Edmonton or Los Angeles, two of the NHL's top seven teams, was certain to be eliminated in the first round. Washington General Manager David Poile had a ready response to that: "Where was Wayne five years ago when the Washington Capitals (No. 5)
