Two suspects from Azerbaijan have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of Olympic swimming gold medalist Alexander Popov in Moscow, but the knife-wielder is still at large, police said today. The 25-year-old Popov, whose sprint freestyle victories in Atlanta gave him recognition as the world's fastest swimmer, was stabbed when a group he was with got into a fight with watermelon vendors in Moscow on Saturday. He is hospitalized in stable condition.

The Kings had arranged for them to see "Out of Africa," but the Soviet players were holding out for "Rocky IV." The Soviets are scheduled to practice today at the Forum (the Kings have Christmas off) and they were pressuring the Kings to arrange a trip to Disneyland for this afternoon.

After making a 23-point improvement in the National Hockey League standings last season, the No. 1 turnaround in the league, the Kings' 1985-86 season has been one to forget.

They have the worst home record in the NHL and have been shut out four times.
