There's only one thing in the NHL more certain than referees swallowing their whistles in the third period: the Phoenix Coyotes choking in the playoffs. It's that time again. After taking a 3-1 lead over the St. Louis Blues in their first-round series, the Coyotes lost the next two and can complete their collapse tonight at America West Arena.

Citing uninspired play and the need for "a change of direction," the New Jersey Devils Monday fired Coach Jim Schoenfeld and replaced him with assistant coach John Cunniff. Cunniff was a coach for the Hartford Whalers and Boston Bruins before joining the Devils in May. Details of his contract were not available. Schoenfeld, 37, coached the Devils to the Stanley Cup semifinals two seasons ago, but the team dropped to 27-41-12 last season and failed to make the playoffs.

From reading The Times sports section for the past few months, I get the impression that someone in high places must hate hockey because the sport does not receive the respect it deserves in your section. Why? Hockey is a great game, and we have a soon-to-be great team here in Los Angeles. Hockey is just as exciting as Laker basketball and certainly more exciting than those two old carcasses: Football and baseball. It is a game of skill, quick thinking and rapid action--shooting a small puck past a dexterous goalie at 50 m.p.h.

I read with, first, amusement and then growing anger Scott Ostler's column (May 10) regarding the ugly Jim Schoenfeld and Don Koharski incident during the NHL's semifinals. Schoenfeld's behavior was inexcusable. So was Mr. Ostler's column. The Times knows so little about the game of hockey that I am frequently amazed it even bothers to send reporters to Kings' games. According to Mr. Ostler, he asked Kings beat reporter Jerry Crowe if there were ever hockey games with no fights, and that Mr. Crowe said that all NHL games have fights.

For now, anyway, the Washington Capitals appear to be revitalized under new Coach Jim Schoenfeld. "It's just incredible, the energy we've had these past two days," Washington's Alan May said after the Capitals ended Detroit's nine-game road unbeaten streak with a 6-3 victory Sunday at Landover, Md. Mike Ridley had a goal and two assists for Washington, 2-1 since Schoenfeld replaced the fired Terry Murray on Thursday.

New Jersey Devils' Coach Jim Schoenfeld was suspended for one game and fined $1,000 by the National Hockey League on Tuesday for his run-in last week with referee Don Koharski. The Devils also were fined $10,000. The penalty was announced by NHL President John Ziegler after a 4 1/2-hour hearing at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The suspension was set for 30 minutes before the Devils played the Boston Bruins in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup semifinals Tuesday night.

The beleaguered John Ziegler, president of the National Hockey League, said Thursday that just because he was out of sight during Sunday's Stanley Cup game did not mean the situation was out of control. "If you think my particular whereabouts transcend all the other things that went on that day, you're incorrect," Ziegler said. "The perception may be that, had I been on hand, things would have been handled differently. But that's not the fact."

The hiring of Jim Schoenfeld as coach of the Washington Capitals last week brings to mind his first brush with national fame. It was May 8, 1988, and Schoenfeld was coaching the New Jersey Devils in a playoff game against the Boston Bruins. The Bruins won, 6-1, and Schoenfeld believed that the officiating had something to do with it. He confronted referee Don Koharski in the hallway and yelled, "Have another doughnut, you fat pig."

James Schoenfeld, one of three men who kidnaped a busload of Chowchilla schoolchildren in 1976, was denied parole for the sixth time. Schoenfeld, now 38, his brother, Richard, 35, and Fred Woods, 37, all received life sentences for abducting 26 students and their driver and imprisoning them in a buried moving van in an unsuccessful attempt to collect a $5-million ransom.

James Schoenfeld, one of three men who kidnaped a busload of Chowchilla schoolchildren in 1976 and held them captive in a buried van while demanding a $5-million ransom, was denied parole for a fifth time. Schoenfeld, 37, did not attend his hearing before the three-member parole board, which rejected his bid for freedom despite agreeing that he has been a model prisoner during his 11 years at the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo.

It is too bad that the public impression of New Jersey Coach Jim Schoenfeld must be equated with his postgame denunciation of referee Don Koharski at Brendan Byrne Arena May 8. Schoenfeld actually is a bright young man. When the flames died, Schoenfeld had a most perceptive comment about the officials: "It takes a special person to do that job. Most people work to please others.

The National Hockey League agreed Monday to give New Jersey Devils' Coach Jim Schoenfeld a hearing before passing judgment on his run-in with referee Don Koharski, and also reached an accord with league officials guaranteeing they work the rest of the playoffs. The action came one day after one of the most embarrassing moments in NHL history.
