Steve Kasper was fired Friday as coach of the Boston Bruins after two years of what assistant general manager Mike O'Connell termed "disastrous results." "[Kasper] did an all right job," O'Connell said. "The fact of the matter is, we didn't win, and a coach's mandate is to win. When you fall the way we have so quickly, something definitely was wrong." The 35-year-old Kasper, who has a year left on his contract, was offered a position in the organization but declined.

As part of a checking line assigned to stop Wayne Gretzky, Boston's Randy Burridge put on a memorable offensive show. Burridge scored three goals for his first National Hockey League hat trick and assisted on another Thursday night as the Bruins beat the slumping Kings, 4-1, for Coach Terry O'Reilly's 100th career victory.

General Manager Rogie Vachon, acting like a man who believes the Kings have a shot at winning the Stanley Cup this spring--a laughable notion in the pre-Gretzky era--made another deal Monday, sending forward Bobby Carpenter to the Boston Bruins for center Steve Kasper. In trading Carpenter, Vachon gave up the player who cost the Kings center Marcel Dionne 2 years ago but never regained his scoring touch, even with the advantage of playing left wing with Wayne Gretzky.

It's early. That's what the Kings say. That's what the NHL schedule shows. That's what history proves. Teams that struggle in November shouldn't necessarily be ruled out of Stanley Cup contention. Ask the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Minnesota North Stars. But all that said, it is also true that the Kings recently skated past the quarter-pole in the marathon 80-game regular season looking like a team in trouble.

Gretzky and Kurri. With the Edmonton Oilers, they made sweet music together on the ice and history in the NHL. With Wayne Gretzky at center and Jari Kurri as his right wing, the Oilers dominated the league, winning four consecutive Stanley Cups, and Gretzky established offensive standards. Now, after a three-year separation, they are united on the Kings, after Thursday's three-team, nine-player trade.

It took three years of waiting, a season in Italy, months of haggling and hours of sweating, but Jari Kurri finally has his wish: a reunion with Wayne Gretzky. And Bruce McNall hopes he finally has his Stanley Cup. In a blockbuster three-team, nine-player trade involving Steve Duchesne and Steve Kasper, Kurri became a King Thursday after McNall signed him to a four-year (three and an option), $3.75-million contract. But the cost was high.

His absence resulted in a power failure for the Kings. His return proved electrifying. When an injury knocked him out of action, it nearly brought the Kings down with him. When he skated down the Forum ice Friday night, he brought 16,005 fans to their feet. He is . . . Tomas Sandstrom? Right idea. Wrong answer. Sandstrom and his celebrated return despite a small fracture in his right leg grabbed the spotlight in Game 5 of the Smythe Division finals Friday and rightfully so.

Maybe Wayne Gretzky didn't want to leave the Oilers, after all. He just didn't want to live in Edmonton. Yet another former Oiler was reunited with Gretzky Saturday when the Kings obtained defenseman Charlie Huddy along with center Randy Gilhen, right wing Jim Thomson and a fourth-round draft pick from the Minnesota North Stars in exchange for center Todd Elik. Both Huddy and Gilhen are free agents, but the Kings don't expect to have a problem signing them.

Boston Bruin Coach Butch Goring criticized his team after it beat the Kings, 7-4, Thursday night before 10,214 fans at the Boston Garden. It was the second time that the Bruins (7-2-1) had beaten the Kings (2-9) in nine days. Boston handed the Kings a 5-2 loss Oct. 22 at the Forum. "I thought L.A. played a lot better than they did when we were out there last week," Goring said. "I don't think we played with much intensity. I don't think we played with any kind of hockey savvy.
