This isn't Philadelphia, Roman Cechmanek realizes, as Superman brushes by him to talk with an armor-clad storm trooper from "Star Wars." It's a picturesque mid-October day in Los Angeles, and people are snapping photos with awe and excitement as the new King goaltender arrives at Mann's Chinese Theater. Only, nobody recognizes the most important addition to the Kings as he shows up for a promotional photo shoot.

The puck hadn't even been dropped for this weekend's back-to-back games between local rivals, and already there was discussion of which team was more desperate -- the Mighty Ducks or the Kings. The Ducks, nine points behind the Kings for eighth place in the Western Conference, need to do well against the Kings today and Sunday to stoke the fire of playoff possibilities. Underachieving and underwhelming so far, the Ducks could see their playoff hopes fade to black with poor showings.

The daily meeting with reporters was close to its half-life, Coach Andy Murray having already discussed an improved effort against the San Jose Sharks and the unimproved condition of goaltender Roman Cechmanek. Then he was handed a single sheet of paper by trainer Pete Demers. His eyes lighted up briefly, enough to signify positive injury news. Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky and forwards Ian Laperriere and Esa Pirnes have received doctors' clearance to practice with the rest of the team and will begin doing so today.

Friday was the first day of training camp for the Kings and the highest point of optimism for them. For King goaltender Roman Cechmanek, Friday was merely the first day of reshaping a career that has followed the same enigmatic formula -- impeccable during the regular season, imperfect during the playoffs. Acquired from Philadelphia for a second-round draft pick, Cechmanek is 92-43-22 in three seasons with a 1.

Often criticized for his unconventional style, Roman Cechmanek again made all the saves in a crucial game. Cechmanek stopped 28 shots and Michal Handzus scored the only goal as the Philadelphia Flyers evened their series with a 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. Game 5 of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals is Saturday in Ottawa. "It doesn't matter if it's a shutout or 5-4, it's the playoffs and we need to win," Cechmanek said.

Philadelphia Flyer goaltender Roman Cechmanek probably will not return to the team after a disappointing finish in the playoffs. "I think it'll be very difficult to bring Roman back," General Manager Bob Clarke said Monday. "I don't think he wants to come back. I think he feels it's not a good place for him." Cechmanek, 32, signed a three-year contract extension worth $3 million a season in January 2002. Clarke said he'll try to trade the goalie.

Rooting through the NHL bargain bin Wednesday, the Kings believe they unearthed an undervalued gem. By sending only a second-round pick in the 2004 draft to the Philadelphia Flyers, they picked up Czech goaltender Roman Cechmanek, who in each of his three seasons has finished second in the league in goals-against average and no worse than tied for fourth in save percentage.
