University of Maryland basketball star Len Bias smoked free-based cocaine in the seconds before he collapsed and died, the state medical examiner's office reported today. Dr. Dennis Smyth, an assistant medical examiner, said the redness of Bias' windpipe and the congestion in the mucous membrane in his throat indicated that Bias had been smoking cocaine. Bias collapsed in his dormitory room about 6:30 a.m. on June 19 and died about two hours later.

If the gay-themed "Tennessee Queer" came out 20 years ago - or was at least a more deftly made film - perhaps it wouldn't seem so desperately past its sell-by date. But this unevenly acted yuckfest, which is as unsubtle as its title, has all the pizazz of a bad sitcom episode. When Jason Potts (Christian Walker), a New York City librarian living in domestic bliss with his idyllic boyfriend (Jerre Dye), is summoned back to his native Smyth, Tenn., under false pretenses (long story)

Here at this fancy resort (La Costa in Carlsbad), I've seen two gas-guzzlers with "No Offshore Drilling" bumper stickers. I hope to see one that adds the words ". . .if your car runs on saltwater." What are my chances? L. SMYTH, Houston, Tex.

It is a tale of two former Conn Smythe winners, and center Colin Fraser had a front seat for both performances. In one corner, Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, the most valuable player of last season's playoffs. Then there's the winner from three years ago, center Jonathan Toews, Chicago's captain. Fraser won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010 and the Kings in 2012. The Kings like to talk about how Quick despises giving up goals even in a run-of-the-mill practice. It doesn't matter if he had almost no chance on the play.

Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan Smyth has a broken right ankle and will miss up to eight weeks, the latest blow to a team that already lost captain Joe Sakic to injury. Smyth was hurt Monday during Colorado's 4-3 overtime loss at Phoenix. The club said Thursday the fracture was discovered during a follow-up MRI. Smyth has 28 points, third-best on the team, with 11 goals and 17 assists in 36 games. Sakic, who underwent hernia surgery last Friday, is expected to be out at least eight weeks.

Playing in front of only 6,083 fans at the 21,000-seat Greensboro Coliseum did not surprise the Kings' Brad Smyth on Tuesday. That's because Smyth is a minor legend to hockey fans in the area after playing a season with the Carolina Monarchs in the team's first American Hockey League season in Greensboro, N.C., two years ago. Smyth, who had an assist in the Kings' 3-3 tie, led the league in goals with 68 and points with 126 to earn most valuable player honors playing for the Monarchs.

EDMONTON, Canada - Greetings from the great white north. There have been snow flurries most of the day but no accumulation of snow, which is always good news for travel concerns. The media turnout for the Oilers' and Kings' morning skates at Rexall Place on Tuesday was astonishingly high for a regular-season game. It's always fun to come up here and see the level of interest. Jonathan Quick was the first goaltender off the ice for the Kings, meaning he's expected to start against the Oilers on Tuesday night.

Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell put it best during the long-and-winding Stanley Cup run when he was pondering the race for the Conn Smythe Trophy. "They're thinking about the other big trophy," he said of his teammates. True enough. But Kings goalie Jonathan Quick would get to hold two big trophies — the Stanley Cup and the Conn Smythe, becoming the third American-born winner of the trophy awarded to the player judged most valuable to his team during the playoffs.

On the day after the Kings' improbable Stanley Cup victory, President and General Manager Dean Lombardi was juggling the past, the present and the future. That's what you have to do in the NHL these days. The time to celebrate championships is incredibly short. The NHL entry draft is just over a week away in Pittsburgh, and from there Lombardi will be doing his utmost to get goaltender Jonathan Quick signed to a lengthy contract extension. Quick won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs' most valuable player and he will be in Las Vegas next week as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL's best goaltender.

They weren't exactly getting their hate on for Ryan Smyth when he took the Staples Center ice wearing an Oilers uniform. More like a faint dislike. The boos came later, and it had nothing to do with the old-school mullet sported by the former King. Smyth turned into Benedict Ryan when he scored in the second period. His goal turned out to be the game-winner as the Oilers beat the Kings, 3-0, on Thursday night. Not only was it the winner, but it also was the first goal given up by the Kings' Jonathan Quick at Staples Center this season.

After contentious negotiations, the Kings on Sunday traded Ryan Smyth to Edmonton for center Colin Fraser and a seventh-round pick in the 2012 entry draft, making the deal only after the Oilers removed oft-injured forward Gilbert Brule from consideration. Fraser, a member of the Chicago Blackhawks' 2010 Stanley Cup team, has a manageable $825,000 cap hit and will get a chance to win a job in training camp. The Kings planned to waive or buy out Brule, who hasn't been procedurally cleared to play after suffering a concussion.

The Kings hit a snag while trying to grant Ryan Smyth's wish to return home to Western Canada when a tentative trade with the Oilers was derailed by concerns related to the post-concussion status of Edmonton forward Gilbert Brule. The Kings, surprised when Smyth asked out for family reasons, agreed to take a late draft pick and Brule's $1.85-million salary-cap hit to offset the Oilers' accepting Smyth's $6.25-million cap hit. The Kings planned to quickly trade, waive or buy out Brule to regain cap space to acquire a replacement for Smyth, who scored 23 goals last season.
