Winger Joe Mullen, the top U.S.-born scorer in NHL history, doesn't consider himself a role model. But it's impossible to think anything else of the New Yorker who grew up in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and on Monday was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. "I didn't go out and say, 'I paved the way for other Americans,' " said Mullen, who scored 502 goals and 1,063 points in 16 NHL seasons. "But if people say I did, that's fine with me.

Coach Mike Keenan of the Chicago Blackhawks thought that the Calgary Flames simply added insult to injury. Keenan said that the Flames were not satisfied with a 5-2 victory Saturday night, taking a 2-1 lead in their Campbell Conference final series. He said the Flames instigated the fight that took place on the ice after the game. "We had the last line change and went to the (Dennis) Savard line, and they made other (substitutions)," Keenan said. "Draw your own conclusions."

For the longest time Saturday night, the Calgary Flames refused to say what was the matter with Joe Mullen, who was run over late in the first period by King defenseman Ken Baumgartner. Mullen provided the answer in the third period: Not much. Mullen, who spent the second period in the locker room, returned to assist on the fourth goal and score the fifth as the Flames withstood a late rally by the Kings to win, 5-2, at the Forum. "I got my head back together and felt like I could contribute," said Mullen, who complained of dizziness and a sore jaw. Had Baumgartner deliberately tried to injure Mullen?

Oh, the Not Ready for Prime Ticket players did stage a comeback Saturday night, after two terrible periods of hockey, before succumbing to the Calgary Flames, 5-2, in Game 3 of their all-over-but-the-shouting Smythe Division playoff series. There will be another game played here Monday night, and we suppose you could ask the old Al Michaels hockey question: "Do you believe in miracles?"
