It occurred to Drew Doughty soon after he slammed himself against the glass to exult over the decisive goal in a 3-2 victory for the Kings over Columbus on Wednesday that maybe he hadn't beaten the clock, and that he'd have a red face when the puck was dropped for overtime at Staples Center. "I didn't know how much time was left. I was sneaking in there and I knew there wasn't a lot of time," Doughty said of the frantic scramble during a power play in the Blue Jackets' zone. "I didn't hear the buzzer, so I assumed it was a goal and after we celebrated the goal I was skating back and realized there wasn't a lot of time left.

Less than an hour after being introduced as the Kings' newest acquisition at a Forum press conference Friday, left wing Luc Robitaille was sharing the spotlight. That's because General Manager Dave Taylor had already made another deal, trading goaltender Byron Dafoe and forward Dimitri Khristich to the Boston Bruins for center Jozef Stumpel, right wing Sandy Moger and a 1998 fourth-round draft choice.

Luc Robitaille keeps going and going, but his team might be going, going, gone. Robitaille set an NHL record for career points by a left wing Monday night, but the Kings lost to the Edmonton Oilers, 2-1, before a dismayed sellout crowd of 18,118 at Staples Center that might have witnessed the Kings' last stand at a playoff spot.

The wheels began turning to get Jozef Stumpel back into the Kings' lineup when winger Dan Bylsma cleared waivers Saturday and stood at the front of the line to go to Long Beach. That would clear a spot on the 23-player roster for Stumpel to come back as early as Wednesday night in San Jose.

First Jozef Stumpel put his foot into a skate Saturday morning. "It hurt," he said. Then he pulled his foot out of the skate. "That was worse," he said. Stumpel, who suffered a broken small toe on his right foot Thursday when he was hit by a shot launched by teammate Mathieu Schneider was scratched for Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay. "I could have played if they 'froze' it," he said, referring to a procedure in which the injured body part is numbed to allow the player on the ice.

With at least one point in 13 of the Kings' 18 games, center Jozef Stumpel has been the team's most consistent offensive player this season. Stumpel, who scored the Kings' lone goal in a 4-1 loss to Montreal on Saturday, has seven points in his last six games. If he stays injury-free, he should pass the career-high 76 points he scored last season with the Boston Bruins.

In his first game back in Boston since being traded from the Bruins, King center Jozef Stumpel had a goal and an assist in the Kings' 6-5 loss Thursday night. Coach Larry Robinson, however, feels that Stumpel is still struggling because he is not in shape. "He can play better," Robinson said. "I don't think that he's in top form yet because he has to get in better condition. He needs to be fresher because when you're tired, you make mistakes."

The Kings, winless in their last three games, received more bad news Friday when they discovered that center Jozef Stumpel suffered a bruised kidney in the team's 2-1 loss to Carolina on Thursday. Stumpel, the team's leading scorer with 63 points, played nearly 20 minutes but was sent to Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood after the game because he had blood in his urine.

King center Jozef Stumpel suffered a broken small toe on his right foot when he was hit by a shot in the second period of Thursday night's game against the New York Rangers. Stumpel skated off the ice with a noticeable limp, and his spot on a line with Ziggy Palffy and Bryan Smolinski was taken by fourth-line center Eric Belanger. Smolinski moved in at center on the power play, with Palffy and Luc Robitaille. Stumpel's status is being called day to day and he will be examined again today.

To the casual fan with TV remote in hand, Jozef Stumpel contributed to the Kings' failure to extend a once-large lead in Thursday's 4-4 tie with the Phoenix Coyotes. Stumpel missed an open net with 20 seconds left in the second period and failed to convert on a Phoenix turnover that could have put the Kings ahead, 4-1. It's tough to defend a player who missed hockey's equivalent of a layup, but King Coach Andy Murray praised Stumpel on Friday morning for "being our best forward" Thursday.

Meanwhile, in El Segundo, where memories of a Stanley Cup finals run are not as fresh as they are in Anaheim, the Kings plot their next move. They addressed one of their most pressing needs Friday night when they reacquired center Jozef Stumpel in a trade with the Boston Bruins.

The holdout over, Jozef Stumpel skated in a Kings' uniform Thursday morning on one hour of sleep. Forget about playing Thursday night. "We skated him hard today and we will again tomorrow," King Coach Andy Murray said. "We'll probably play him in Dallas on Saturday." That's the easy part, being on ice. That's where it's a game. Stumpel found out that off the ice, hockey is a serious business.

Jozef Stumpel got his three seasons. He didn't get his $3 million a season. He did get a lesson in the NHL's new economics. A process that began two months ago ended Wednesday when the Kings signed their holdout center to a bonus-laden contract. They would not reveal the terms, but the deal was well below the $9 million Stumpel sought when the two sides first talked contract in August.

Jozef Stumpel hit the wall Saturday afternoon. Stumpel, a King center and their top assist man, opted to have surgery on his abdomen to repair a sports hernia doctors found in an MRI two days earlier. The operation will be Monday, and Stumpel will be out from eight to 10 weeks and perhaps as many as 12. Rehabilitation begins in about three weeks. "It's hard to tell," Stumpel said, concerning how and when he was injured. "The last couple of weeks it's gotten worse and worse.

The once and future King skated alone at noon Wednesday, after his once and future teammates had gone home to get ready to play St. Louis later that evening at Staples Center. Yes, Jozef Stumpel is in town. Though he remains unsigned, Stumpel acceded to the wishes of Kings' management to come to Southern California from his native Slovakia after scouts had seen him leave his final game for Bratislava on Oct. 3 after one period. Back problems were feared, but a battery of tests revealed none.

Some of the verdict is in, based on training camp and eight exhibition games, but the sentence remains to be rendered for at least three Kings. One defenseman and two forwards will have to go to bring the roster down to the league-mandated 23, and as of Sunday, those decisions had yet to be completed. The reason is a hope that Jozef Stumpel will call.
