Glen Murray scored three goals in a game for the fifth time in his NHL career, to lead the Boston Bruins over the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1, Sunday at Boston. All of his goals came in the third period. Murray has scored six of the Bruins' last seven goals and has come up with the game-winning goal in each of their last three games. Before that, he had gone 15 games with only three goals. "You ask anyone, when you get a couple of goals in a row it seems like you find the right spot," Murray said.

The Boston Bruins' top line has been without Sergei Samsonov nearly all season, but there has been no shortage of production. Glen Murray scored the fourth hat trick of his career, Brian Rolston scored two goals and John Grahame stopped 29 shots, and the streaking Bruins defeated the Calgary Flames, 7-2, Tuesday night. The Bruins won their third consecutive game and seventh in a row at home. Boston is 8-1-1-0 at the FleetCenter this season. The Flames lost for the seventh time in eight games.

Andy Murray is aware of the hockey axiom that says a coaching honeymoon in the NHL lasts no longer than three seasons.

Ziggy Palffy and Aaron Miller, who returned to the lineup after sitting out because of back injuries, earned high marks from Coach Andy Murray for their work in Saturday night's 3-2 overtime victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Palffy, who had sat out four games, made the more obvious contribution, scoring the winner and assisting on a third-period goal by Adam Deadmarsh. "He certainly looked better than he did before he went out," Murray said. "He had more jump in his stride.

Some day, somehow, the management of the Kings will realize, as do the majority of King fans, that its continual mismanagement limits the success of the team and that the next level remains beyond accomplishment. After last season, they chose to wave goodbye to Luc Robitaille. Now they have chosen to say goodbye to Jozef Stumpel and Glen Murray. For months we have been told that the ceiling of $40 million was imposed by the owner, and now in a state of panic after nine games, management somehow seems to find $20 million.

Dave Taylor declined comment Thursday when asked about reports that the Boston Bruins wanted Adam Deadmarsh to be included in the Jason Allison trade before Taylor told them that Deadmarsh was untouchable. "We talked about a lot of players," said Taylor, who is said to have tried to package a defenseman and a forward before agreeing to send forwards Jozef Stumpel and Glen Murray to the Bruins. "I don't want to talk about specific guys." Is Deadmarsh untouchable?
