His last NHL goal was during the 1989-90 season. He is the proud owner of one playoff goal--scored as a Winnipeg Jet in 1984. But the essence of King defenseman Tim Watters is not about scoring. If it was, this would be a very short story. His fortunes have risen with the Kings' playoff successes, and a victory today at the Forum in Game 4 of the Campbell Conference finals against the Toronto Maple Leafs would put them within one victory of the Stanley Cup finals.

It was another reunion between some former Kings and the current Kings. And is often the pattern, the ex-Kings, now Boston Bruins, prevailed, 3-1, on Tuesday night at the Forum before an announced crowd of 9,725 in the Kings' exhibition opener. Steve Kasper, who played part of three seasons with the Kings, was behind the bench as Boston's head coach. Standing next to him was assistant Cap Raeder, who spent seven seasons in the King organization in a similar role.
