Accompanying your report of the recent trades made by the Kings were pictures of the principals involved. One only needs to look at the pictures to know the story: First there's goalie Roland Melanson and below we find new defenseman Grant Ledyard. Both are wearing bright, enthusiastic smiles. Then there is Brian MacLellan, who looks like he's trying to wake up! Coach Pat Quinn and GM Rogie Vachon would do well to peer into the eyes of their remaining players to see who's still sleeping.

Goalie Roland Melanson will join the Kings tonight when they play the Toronto Maple Leafs in the opener of a five-game trip. King Coach Pat Quinn said Melanson probably won't start tonight's game, however. Melanson was traded to the Kings last month in a three-way deal with the New York Rangers and Minnesota North Stars. He had been out since suffering a groin injury while with the North Stars Nov. 19.

Luc Robitaille stole a clearing pass and scored an unassisted goal, then set up Paul Fenton for the tying goal in a 3-3 tie with the Winnipeg Jets in an exhibition game here Sunday night. Ron Duguay scored the first goal for the Kings, who have yet to win an exhibition. They are now 0-2-2. They played here without four regulars, including Wayne Gretzky and Dave Taylor, who went to Ontario along with Mike Krushelnyski for the funeral of Marty McSorley's mother.

Maybe Minnesota General Manager Lou Nanne knew something when he traded goalie Roland Melanson to the Kings last month. Melanson had been out since he injured his groin Nov. 19 against the Calgary Flames. In his first game back last week, Melanson was beaten by the Pittsburgh Penguins, 7-3, and now he is sidelined again after aggravating the injury Wednesday night in the second period of the Kings' 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

The Kings, winners of two straight and looking to drop one of three goaltenders before returning home, meet the New Jersey Devils tonight at Brendan Byrne Arena (delayed, KGIL 6 p.m. and KMNY 10 p.m.) in the opener of a five-game trip. A win by the Kings (12-24-4, 28 points) coupled with a loss by the Vancouver Canucks (29 points) at Toronto would move Los Angeles out of the cellar in the Smythe Division for the first time since Nov. 26.

Buffalo Sabre goaltender Jacques Cloutier joked that he hadn't played in so long that he "didn't know where (the) crease was for a while." Sunday, he looked right at home, posting a strong performance in helping the Sabres to a 6-1 victory over the Kings. Cloutier hadn't played in Buffalo's last 11 games, but Sabre Coach Scotty Bowman said his 24-save performance was outstanding. "The guys wanted to play for him," said Bowman.
