One more victory and the St. Louis Blues are in the conference finals for the first time in 15 years. One more loss and the Dallas Stars' drive for a third consecutive Stanley Cup final is history. Cory Stillman scored at 9:26 of the second overtime as the Blues overcame a two-goal deficit to win, 3-2, Tuesday night in the Western Conference semifinal series at St. Louis. The Blues lead the best-of-seven series, three games to none. Game 4 is Thursday night at St. Louis.

Last season, Scott Hamilton missed the final 10 performances of "Stars on Ice," the show he co-created, when his testicular cancer was diagnosed. This season, with the cancer in remission, Hamilton intends to skate every performance on the show's 57-city tour. Presumably, the 1984 Olympic champion is taking it easy, right? Wrong. In this year's 12th edition, which stops at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim on Saturday, Hamilton skates more than he has in any previous show.

Though he's not retiring from the profession, Olympic champion skater Scott Hamilton is leaving the popular figure skating production "Stars on Ice" after the tour is completed in April. Hamilton, who won an Olympic gold medal in 1984, founded the "Stars on Ice" tour in 1986 and has co-headlined and co-produced the tour for 15 years. The show will visit Staples Center on Jan. 17 and the Arrowhead Pond on Jan. 20.

Call it the season of the teenager and the teen idol for Discover Stars on Ice. The teenager is Tara Lipinski, now 16, who was 15 when she became figure skating's youngest-ever women's Olympic gold medalist last February. The teen idol is 1998 Olympic men's champion Ilia Kulik, 21, who resembles actor Leonardo DiCaprio and has been affecting arena audiences in much the same way.

Last year's edition of Stars on Ice welcomed five new cast members to its roster of figure skating champions, including current Olympic gold medalists Tara Lipinski and Ilia Kulik. The changes to this year's production, which plays San Diego, Anaheim and Los Angeles this weekend, involve what is being performed, not who is doing the performing. It's part of the show's continuing artistic evolution, according to Scott Hamilton, the 1984 Olympic skating champion.

During one particularly busy month in the preparation period for this year's edition of Stars on Ice, the full 14-member cast was available to rehearse for a grand total of three days. "That was because of all the competitions," says director-choreographer Sandra Bezic. "It's a credit to our organizational skills that we have a show." That show goes on tonight at the Pond of Anaheim. It's no secret that figure skating is hot.

Some time today, Ekaterina Gordeeva will skate onto the ice at a practice rink in Lake Placid, N.Y., bringing the most painful year of her life full circle. On this same rink one year ago today--Nov. 20, 1995--Gordeeva lost her skating partner, best friend, teenage sweetheart, husband and the father of her now 4-year-old daughter when Sergei Grinkov suffered a heart attack during a routine workout, collapsed on the ice and never regained consciousness. Grinkov was 28 at the time.

Why in the world was dance reviewer Jennifer Fisher assigned to Target Stars on Ice ("Glitzy Star Turns Make for Slick Ice-Show Fun," Jan. 17)? Competitive figure skating is covered by the Sports section, and although exhibition-style skating shows can be critiqued, it should be as entertainment. Figure skating does contain elements of artistry and choreographic interpretation, but it is not dance and should not be reviewed as such. Surely Angelenos are sophisticated enough to know the difference.

Last year at this time, the skaters of Stars on Ice were mourning the death of cast member Sergei Grinkov, who collapsed and died of a heart attack at age 28 in 1995 while rehearsing for the show's opening night. This season, troupe members--among them co-founder Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, Paul Wylie and Kurt Browning--are welcoming back Grinkov's widow, Ekaterina "Katia" Gordeeva.
