And how did the Kings respond to the trade of popular right wing Rick Tocchet? In losing, 8-2, to the Hartford Whalers on Thursday at the Civic Arena, it was their most one-sided defeat of the season, and certainly the most embarrassing. They had not yielded eight goals in a game since losing, 8-2, at Dallas on March 6, 1995. Now, the Kings are winless in their last eight games, going 0-6-2, and have only one road victory in the last 17 games.

But now that the season is past its midpoint, they are a team on the move.
