The fallout from Saturday's loss to the Boston Bruins continued Monday with Coach Andy Murray saying that defenseman Jaroslav Modry needs to become more physical. "I think there's no question that our fans want to see him get involved physically in battle and he needs to do that on a more consistent basis," Murray said. "He's a smart player and a quality person. He needs to play harder."

Kings defenseman Brad Stuart went to his usual place in the dressing room after practice in El Segundo on Wednesday. One problem. The nameplate above the stall said Peter Harrold. No, Stuart hadn't been traded. But he was headed elsewhere -- to a spot next to Kings defenseman Tom Preissing, a nice location close to the dressing room door. It was where defenseman Jaroslav Modry resided until he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for a third-round draft pick in June.

In the midst of piling up 18 points in the Kings' last 19 games, defenseman Jaroslav Modry at one point was the top scorer in the NHL without a goal. He lost that dubious distinction Thursday night when he scored a second-period power-play goal in the Kings' 4-2 victory over the Senators at Ottawa.

Jaroslav Modry's father supported his family by working in a pub, surrounded by smoke and noise and the smell of the beer that has been brewed in their southern Czech town, Ceske Budejovice, since it was founded in the 13th century. No matter how late the elder Modry worked, no matter how tired he might have been, he was ready the next morning to take his namesake son to play hockey.

From Day 1 of training camp, he skated as half of the top defensive pairing, sharing ice time with King captain Rob Blake. Jaroslav Modry knew it wouldn't last. Mattias Norstrom would eventually sign his contract, but there was an opportunity to be seized, new people to impress, and, at 28 and with a yo-yo career between the NHL and minor leagues, Modry was going to seize it.

His South Bay house is for sale and he thought he was moving twice before, possibly to Dallas or back to New York. Yet the trading deadline passed on Wednesday--a bunch of deals were made--and King goaltender Kelly Hrudey was still standing in the crease after the dust cleared. And, remarkably, he was still upright Wednesday night after the explosive Colorado Avalanche defeated the Kings, 5-2, on the strength of left wing Valeri Kamensky's hat trick before an announced crowd of 11,801.

Understandably, defenseman Jaroslav Modry was disappointed he was scratched from the King lineup for the third and fourth games of their playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings. But Modry didn't sulk, which contributed to Coach Andy Murray's decision to play him Saturday at Detroit and again in Game 6, Monday at Staples Center. "If you get negative, maybe you don't dress for Game 5," Modry said. "You've got to have a positive attitude. I enjoy playing as much as I can."

The Kings played again without leading goal-scorer Alexander Frolov, more this time because of Frolov's tender ankle than a punitive decision by Coach Andy Murray. The same could not be said about defenseman Jaroslav Modry. Modry, who has 30 points and a team-high plus-12 rating, did not play Monday against the Colorado Avalanche because of a recent slump that bottomed out with a careless no-look pass Friday that led to an Edmonton Oiler goal.

Pilot, warm up the plane. File a flight plan for Detroit, if you please. Forget that Colorado business. That's for sixth-place teams. The heavy-hitting Kings got goals from light-scoring Jaroslav Modry, Ian Laperriere and Jere Karalahti and standup goaltending from Jamie Storr in a 3-2 victory over Dallas on Friday night at Staples Center. They also got help from San Jose, whose 3-1 victory at Phoenix enabled the Kings to clinch fifth place in the Western Conference. "Hey, all that means is that we know we have a longer plane flight," said winger Luc Robitaille, who assisted on Laperriere's goal.

The King lineup was shaken up, as promised by Coach Andy Murray, but the results were only partly stirring, enough to show improvement but not nearly enough to entertain thoughts of a playoff-drive rebirth. Despite a tangible boost from a vastly retooled lineup, the Kings lost a seventh consecutive game for the first time since 1987, falling to the Calgary Flames in overtime, 3-2, in front of 18,419 Saturday at Pengrowth Saddledome.

The Mighty Ducks got the bounce. Did the Kings get bounced? Samuel Pahlsson's goal with 2:44 to play Tuesday night, scored after a clearing pass by King defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky caromed into the slot in front of the King net, gave the Ducks a 2-1 victory in front of 18,118 at Staples Center. It sucked the life out of the sellout crowd, and also drained some of the life out of the Kings' playoff aspirations.

Once the Kings got Colorado into overtime, they knew that they had the defending Stanley Cup champions right where they wanted them. Displaying the character that has been a trademark under Coach Andy Murray, the short-handed Kings gutted one out Thursday night with a 1-0 victory over the Avalanche in front of a standing-room only crowd at Pepsi Center. Winger Craig Johnson will go down in the books as the player who scored the winning goal of Game 5, but it was truly a team effort for the Kings, who trail, 3-2, in the best-of-seven series.

Scenarios varied as to where the Kings would land for the opening two games in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, Colorado, San Jose. All were possible destinations. About an hour after the Kings held off the Mighty Ducks, 1-0, at Staples Center Sunday, travel plans were finally in place. The Kings' first-round series would open where their playoff run ended a year ago: Denver.

Jaroslav Modry was supposed to be in the desert this weekend. The King defenseman had planned to spend the All-Star break in Palm Springs with his wife, Jodi, recharging for the final 21/2 months of the season while his father baby-sat the couple's young children, Jacob, 3, and Alexa, 13 months. The thought that he might actually be playing in Saturday's All-Star game at Staples Center never even entered his mind. Three seasons ago, he played for the Long Beach Ice Dogs.
