The rift between the Kings and Rob Blake has gotten so bad that the star defenseman has voluntarily relinquished his captaincy. Dave Taylor, the Kings' general manager, said Blake approached club officials prior to the Kings' first exhibition game a week ago in Phoenix and his request was honored. "The Kings' first priority is to keep Rob Blake in a King uniform for the foreseeable future," said Taylor in a statement.

Codiglia, a deputy inspector for the New York Police Department and their guide for the day, detailed the events of Sept. 11 and the aftermath. He told them of the recent discovery of the badly decomposed body of a fallen comrade.

Andy Murray, who never met a saying, motto, slogan or mantra he didn't like, draws the line at one used by every incoming leader since Joshua fought the battle of Jericho: "All jobs are open." As bad as the Kings were last season, and at 32-45-5 they were bad enough to get Larry Robinson fired and Murray hired as coach, some jobs already will be filled when training camp begins with physical examinations today and skating Sunday at Iceoplex in North Hills.

Coach Larry Robinson declared it was his fault the Kings left the FleetCenter on Monday with a 4-4 tie against the Boston Bruins instead of a victory, but goaltender Stephane Fiset insisted he should be blamed for not stopping Boston's last two goals. Although there was blame to share, there were also several praiseworthy moments in a performance that enabled the Kings (6-6-3) to complete a 2-0-2 trip and extend their unbeaten streak to 2-0-3 overall.

"I think just making the playoffs this year, we can't be satisfied with that," King Coach Larry Robinson says. "We've got to set our goals higher.
