Pluses There might be playoff games in The Center of the Hockey Universe for the first time since 2004, with the Toronto Maple Leafs having won three straight games and earned points in eight straight. Nazem Kadri and linemate Joffrey Lupul have played big roles, with Lupul collecting five goals and nine points in his last four games and Kadri scoring six goals and 14 points in his last eight. For that, Kadri was rewarded - or should that be punished? - by a kiss on the cheek from Don Cherry on Saturday.

The Ducks joined the rapidly growing list of teams testing the early resolve of the NHL's new discipline czar, Brendan Shanahan . Shanahan, the league's senior vice president of player safety, on Tuesday suspended Ducks winger J.F. Jacques for the remainder of the preseason and five regular-season games as a result of the incident with Canucks forward Mike Duco on Saturday at Vancouver. Though Jacques left the bench on a legal line change late in the third period, it was noted he went straight to Duco to start a fight, making no effort to join the play.

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers forward Sean Avery, 28, will spend the next few days in the hospital after lacerating his spleen during Tuesday night's loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Avery was injured during the 5-3 loss from a hit, possibly in the first period, but played throughout the game despite worsening pain. Avery was evaluated at the arena and was "never in a life-threatening situation," team spokesman John Rosasco said. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Sean Avery, the 26-year-old forward whom the Kings removed from their dressing room last week, will be covering the Stanley Cup playoffs as a commentator for Sportsnet, a Canadian cable network. Avery will provide in-studio commentary for the first week of the playoffs, and his contract could be extended. That might hinge on his being able to curtail his shoot-from-the-lip personality.

The rift between Coach Andy Murray and forward Sean Avery seemed to grow Thursday, the day after the Kings' losing streak reached seven games. Avery was benched the last two games and suggested that his relationship with Murray had deteriorated after a loss Wednesday to Columbus. Murray said he was using the players "that give us the best chance to win." Murray responded Thursday, saying, "I don't know if there has been a bigger supporter of Sean Avery than me.

If Bob Hope were alive, he'd be making an appearance at Staples Center tonight. The retiring Luc Robitaille, Jeremy Roenick, Sean Avery, John Torchetti, maybe Dave Taylor and many more personnel collecting paychecks from the Kings will be told, "Thanks for the memories," in a matter of days. ERIK SCHUMAN Fountain Valley Just out of curiosity, how many incriminating photos of Times personnel does AEG possess? How else can you explain why King owner Philip Anschutz and CEO Tim Leiweke continue to escape the harsh treatment that the Dodgers' Frank McCourt and Clippers' Donald Sterling have routinely received in the past for poor team performances?

Left wing Sean Avery's controversy-filled three-plus seasons with the Kings ended Monday when the team traded him to the New York Rangers in a five-player deal. In return, the Kings received forward Jason Ward and two prospects, forwards Marc-Andre Cliche and Jan Marek. The Kings also included forward John Seymour, an eighth-round pick in the 2005 draft. By trading the 26-year-old Avery, the Kings removed a potentially negative influence on players who are part of the team's youth movement.

Two days after several Ohio State freshmen proudly displayed wristbands supporting deposed football coach Jim Tressel , the university took them away and refunded the players' money. Jerry Emig , a spokesman for the school, said officials were looking into whether players' wearing the wristbands — which carried the initials "JT" — could be an NCAA violation. He added that Ohio State decided to take a cautionary approach after the wristbands, which were sold by an Ohio State employee, were mentioned prominently in media reports.

The Dallas Stars said they are parting ways with forward Sean Avery, who was eligible to return Sunday from a six-game suspension. "You have to do what's right for both parties, and that's what we're really trying to do," said Brett Hull, the club's co-general manager. Avery was only 23 games into a four-year, $15.5-million deal when NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman suspended him for a crude remark about ex-girlfriends dating other hockey players.

While the sports world was busy trashing the trash talking of hockey's Sean Avery this week, there was something more compelling to note beyond his potty mouth: The muzzling of trash talking. Or maybe it's what in this Jerry Springer world constitutes an attempt for "clean trash talking," a sporting oxymoron along the lines of "fun run" and "draft expert." There's a line being drawn out there, somewhere, and it began before Avery's tasteless comments regarding a former girlfriend dating an opponent.

Dustin Brown can leave an impression. That was clear early in his Kings career. As a 20-year-old forward with fewer than 40 NHL games on his resume, he went to work. In one week, he clobbered three future Hall of Famers -- Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom, the Ducks' Chris Pronger and Colorado's Joe Sakic -- to start the 2005-06 season. Some remember. "I recall that. I had the puck, then I was on the ice," Lidstrom said. Some don't. "Nope, don't remember it," Pronger said. "Who can Brown hit for you?"

The Kings and forward Sean Avery have agreed on a one-year contract that will pay him $1.1 million next season and allow them to avoid arbitration. The deal probably will include a short leash, which Kings officials hope will put an end to Avery's off-ice incidents. "This isn't like he's getting a clean slate with a new general manager and a new coach," said Dean Lombardi, the Kings' first-year GM. "He's still on double-secret probation."

Sean Avery came up with both the backbreaker and the heartbreaker. Avery scored a short-handed goal in the second period that keyed a four-goal rally and added the game-winner in the third period as the Kings held off the Colorado Avalanche, 6-5, Tuesday night. "We just are all trying to get goals and win games," Avery said. "We have been playing hard and the bounces haven't been going our way." Avery's first goal broke a 2-2 tie in the second period, and his second made it 6-4.

Things you felt confident in saying about Sean Avery, New York Rangers forward and oddity: He will never be vague. He will never be working for Vogue. Well, strike that last one. Avery has applied to be an intern at Vogue this summer, Page Six Magazine reported, saying the former Kings player personally wrote a letter to Vogue's editor. Still, Avery has played the dedicated follower of fashion in the past.
