The British siblings were the guys who lugged speakers into downtown Los Angeles warehouses, collected cash from wild-eyed patrons and watched the door, hoping the cops wouldn't burst in and shut the whole affair down. "It was exhausting," Steve Levy says of those halcyon days when the all-night dance parties were a mysterious and illegal new import. "Crazy and exhausting."

General Manager Sam McMaster said he believed justice was done Thursday when the NHL suspended Philadelphia Flyer winger Daniel Lacroix for two games for "a flagrant elbow" against King left wing Kevin Stevens on Tuesday.
