As it has so often in the past, the Purple and Gold faded quietly into the off-season Tuesday night. This time, it won't be back. Playing for the last time in their now outdated uniforms, the Kings were eliminated from the National Hockey League playoffs by the Calgary Flames, who wrapped up their Smythe Division semifinal series with a 6-4 victory before a sellout crowd of 19,626 at the Olympic Saddledome. Calgary won the best-of-seven series, 4-1.

The Edmonton Oilers have returned to their familiar spring surroundings--the Stanley Cup finals. The Oilers, getting two goals each from Craig Simpson and Mike Krushelnyski, reached the championship round for the fifth time in six years with an 8-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night. "Since the Winnipeg series (in the Smythe Division final), we've played well in key situations," said Oiler captain Wayne Gretzky, who had a goal and two assists.

Mark Johnson played a key role when the United States hockey team won the gold medal in the 1980 Winter Olympics, but he hasn't had many big moments since then. He certainly had one Friday night at East Rutherford, N.J., scoring four goals to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 10-4 victory over Washington and a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup quarterfinal-round playoff series. Johnson and linemate Patrick Sundstrom both gave the Capitals problems.
