Former NHL goalie John Vanbiesbrouck quit as coach and general manager of a junior league hockey team Monday after using a racial slur to describe a black player. "My comments were inappropriate and out of character and I deeply regret my actions," he said. Vanbiesbrouck will keep his 25% ownership stake in the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, team spokesman Gino Cavallo said.

Florida Panther owner H. Wayne Huizenga, draft veteran, witnessed the birth of his second professional team within an eight-month span and it was not much different than the first time around with baseball's Florida Marlins. Once again, his new family--the 24 players selected by the Panthers in Thursday's NHL expansion draft--were, with a couple exceptions, like anonymous orphans thrown together.

Team USA closed out the preliminary round of the World Hockey Championships with a 6-1 victory over Poland today, but possibly lost its goaltender for the rest of the tourney with an injury. John Vanbiesbrouck, who plays for the New York Rangers, was removed to a hospital with a suspected broken jaw after being hit by the puck early in the second period. Vanbiesbrouck was struck in the lower part of his face mask when a Polish shot deflected off his stick. The accident occurred about six minutes into the second period during a Polish power play.

Florida's first win of the series was a fluke, which was demonstrated by the loss in Game 2. A three-year-old franchise beating the team with the best record in the East in a playoff series? The sign at the Miami Arena said it all: "Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming." Wake up, you dirty rat.

The Kings could easily blame Wednesday night's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on an early-season schedule that included 13 road games and three trips to the East Coast. Instead, the Kings credited the Panthers and goalie John Vanbiesbrouck for simply outplaying them before a sellout crowd of 14,703 at the Miami Arena. "I think they are the best team in the league," defenseman Rob Blake said about the Panthers, who improved to 12-3-5.

It took 12 years in the NHL for goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck to achieve the balance of personal and professional contentment that helped him carry the Florida Panthers to unprecedented heights this season. "You have to have the peace within yourself in order to play at the top of your game and fulfill yourself. It's a matter of being able to understand yourself," said Vanbiesbrouck, the Panthers' first pick in the 1993 expansion draft. "The No.

They aren't Jaromir Jagr or Mario Lemieux . . . name guys. Well, one name guy.

Vanbiesbrouck turned away 32 of 33 shots in beating the Pittsburgh Penguins for the first time in six playoff tries. Tom Fitzgerald scored twice in the Panthers' 5-1 victory.

John Vanbiesbrouck, alone, was almost enough. But even at his best, the New York Ranger goalie couldn't single-handedly stop the Boston Bruins. Though Vanbiesbrouck's 35 saves kept the Rangers in the game, the Bruins got too many chances at him, winning, 3-1, over the Rangers at New York Monday night. At one point in the second period Boston had outshot New York, 13-0, to little avail. "John was playing so well, he just stoned us," said Boston goaltender Andy Moog of Vanbiesbrouck.
