The way Peter Forsberg played against the Kings in Colorado's 5-3 victory Saturday, one would think he was the best player in the history of hockey. Forsberg finished with one goal and two assists, giving him five points over the first two games of the best-of-seven series. Not bad for a player who sat out nearly a year because of various injuries before rejoining the Avalanche for their Western Conference first-round matchup against the Kings. "My legs were going a little better [than they did in Game 1]

Several classic feature films such as 1961's "Breakfast at Tiffany's," 1950's "Born Yesterday" and 1983's "A Christmas Story" were among the 25 motion pictures selected last December for inclusion in the prestigious National Film Registry of the Library of Congress because they represent important achievements in filmmaking. But not every film was a familiar title. Also making the list was "Parable," a 20-minute religious allegorical silent short with music. "Parable" was the main attraction of the Protestant and Orthodox Center at the 1964 New York World's Fair.

The Colorado Avalanche certainly did not have the look of a champion. With a chance to send the Kings packing for vacation, Coach Bob Hartley's bunch seemed to fall apart before Saturday's Game 6 began after learning that Peter Forsberg would not be in the lineup because of a leg injury. Although the Avalanche played the regular season without Forsberg and finished with the second-best record in the Western Conference, it didn't have the same spark without him in a 3-1 defeat to the Kings in front of a boisterous sellout crowd at Staples Center.

When the basketball court at the Staples Center turns into a Rocky Mountain wilderness, chaos ensues. In this case, that chaos is called Moto X Enduro X, the final event of X Games 17. Both the men's and the women's races went to riders who simply knew how to not fall. Both Taddy Blazusiak and Maria Forsberg took the lead for good when the initial frontrunners hit the dirt. "I was driving on the limit all the time," the Polish Blazusiak said. "Just trying to push as hard as I could.

When Marko Tuomainen took on Colorado's Peter Forsberg in the first period Sunday, it was a reunion of sorts. That's probably why Forsberg was so angry. "When you get slashed . . . and they don't call it, it's frustrating," said Forsberg, who took two penalties, including a first-period roughing call that the Kings turned into a power-play goal and their first score in a 3-2 victory at Staples Center. "That's great, when he pays more attention to me than to his game," Tuomainen said.

Although Forsberg was limited to only one shot on goal and recorded only one hit, he made a key play that led to Colorado's 1-0 victory over the Kings on Tuesday night in Game 4 of their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series.

Marcia and Richard Forsberg had the appearance of the perfect couple — holding hands, stealing kisses and still joking around after 39 years of marriage. The Rancho Santa Margarita couple met in a journalism class at Ventura College. She became a newspaper features writer and editor, while he went to work for a community college. They were active in their homeowners association and always seemed to be in a good mood. They were the kind of people who stayed in touch with old friends.

Flyer center Peter Forsberg needs surgery to repair ligament problems in both of his ankles, injuries that will force him to miss the start of the season and could sideline him until January.
