Bill Plaschke's article about Montreal pitcher Tim Burke should be read by baseball fans across the land and should be presented to athletic figures everywhere. Burke's adoptions of the South Korean girl, Stephanie, and the Guatemalan boy, Ryan, prove that Burke values life more than money and stardom. At the (All-Star) game, he received a small ovation during the introductions, but he received a large one from me. KURT F. HAGIHARA North Hollywood

Playing at home for the first time in three weeks, the Kings on Saturday did little to reward the 16th sellout crowd of what has been, to this point, a season of exceeded expectations. Unable to get their power play going -- and so vulnerable that they surrendered a short-handed goal to the Canadiens in the second period -- the Kings fell to Montreal, 4-2, at Staples Center. Coupled with their loss Thursday at Nashville, the Kings have lost consecutive games in regulation for the first time since Jan. 9-11.

The Montreal Canadiens' best offense Tuesday night came from defenseman Larry Robinson. "I know we're a better club than what we showed in Montreal," Coach Jean Perron said after the Canadiens stayed alive in the National Hockey League semifinals with a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5. "Our defense has carried the club all year, and tonight it carried us again." Robinson, backbone of the NHL's top defense, starred on offense as well.
