The Colorado Avalanche can finally exhale after taking care of the Los Angeles Kings. Chris Drury and Ville Nieminen scored two of Colorado's four third-period goals as the Avalanche advanced to the Western Conference finals with a 5-1 victory over Los Angeles in Game7 last night. Rob Blake, traded from Los Angeles to Colorado in February, also scored for the Avs, who are heading to the conference finals for the third straight year. They will face the St. Louis Blues at home in Game1 on Saturday.

When Colorado's winning streak hit a franchise-record nine, it finally included a victory over a team with a winning record. The visiting Avalanche held Boston to only three shots on net in the third period last night while getting goals from Milan Hejduk and Adam Deadmarsh to beat the Bruins, 3-2, snapping a three-year losing streak in Boston. "This was a nice way to start out our road trip," said Joe Sakic, who had an assist on the game-winner. Trailing 2-1, the Avalanche scored two goals in the game's final five minutes.

Joe Sakic isn't going anywhere. The Colorado Avalanche confirmed yesterday the team has matched the three-year, $21 million offer the New York Rangers made to their star center and captain, who was a restricted free agent. "We intended to match it from the moment the offer sheet came in," said Charlie Lyons, CEO of Ascent Entertainment Group, owner of the Avalanche and Denver Nuggets. "We were never going to lose our captain. " Rangers general manager Neil Smith said his team deliberately frontloaded their offer to Sakic with a $15 million signing bonus, hoping it would discourage Colorado from matching it. Smith said Colorado's decision to match sent a message.

The Colorado Avalanche sent center Mike Ricci to the San Jose Sharks for right wing Shean Donovan and a first-round pick in next year's draft in a trade announced last night. The Sharks also receive a second-round pick in 1998 from Colorado. Ricci, 26, played six games with the Avalanche this season, after missing the first 16 games recovering from shoulder surgery. He has had four points, all assists. He said he knew that the talent-laden Avalanche, who won the Stanley Cup in 1996, would have to let some players go sooner or later.

Patrick Roy, whose goaltending helped take the Stanley Cup to Colorado, signed a multiyear contract with the Avalanche yesterday. Financial terms weren't announced, but the pact was said to be worth about $3 million. Roy was acquired by the Avalanche on Dec. 6 in a trade that sent Jocelyn Thibault, Martin Rucinsky and Andrei Kovalenko to Montreal for the all-star goaltender and Mike Keane. Roy played 39 games with the Avalanche in the regular season, with a 22-15-1 record and 2.68 goals-against average.

KATHMANDU, Nepal - Mountaineers who survived a pre-dawn avalanche high on the world's eighth-tallest peak say they waited an hour for the sun to come up and then saw pieces of tents and bodies of victims strewn around them on the snow. Italian climber Silvio Mondinelli said he and a fellow mountaineer were asleep when they heard a violent sound and felt their tent start to slide. "It was only a few seconds and we did not know what happened, but we had slid more than 200 meters [650 feet]

The knee injury to Colorado center Stephane Yelle will mean more playing time for veteran Dale Hunter when the Avalanche entertain the Detroit Red Wings, the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, in their second-round NHL playoff series. The Western Conference series opens tomorrow night in Denver. Yelle, the Avalanche's third-line center and the team's best penalty killer, is sidelined indefinitely with a badly sprained left knee. He suffered it in Colorado's 3-2 overtime win over San Jose on Monday night, which clinched the first-round series, four games to two. Detroit wrapped up its opening-round series six days earlier, dispatching Anaheim in four games.

STEVENS PASS, WASH. - Three skiers were killed yesterday when an avalanche swept them about a quarter-mile down an out-of-bounds canyon at a popular resort. A fourth skier caught up in the slide was saved by a safety device, authorities said. The four were among three groups of skiers - about a dozen people in all - making their way through a foot and a half of fresh snow on the back side of Stevens Pass when the avalanche hit. Stevens Pass is in the Cascade Mountains, about 80 miles northeast of Seattle.

DENVER - The Flyers' New Year's resolution should be this: Re-think the penalty-killing coverage because the current setup is not working. The Flyers allowed a late Colorado power-play goal to tie the score Wednesday, then got beaten, 4-3, on Ryan O'Reilly's overtime tally with 19.9 seconds left at the Pepsi Center. "I thought we played a pretty good game, but we're finding ways to lose games," coach Craig Berube said after the Flyers' third straight defeat. "I thought we battled hard and had the better of the play.

The Flyers continued their winning ways during their homestand, but it wasn't easy in their 4-3 win Saturday over the Colorado Avalanche at the Wells Fargo Center. The power-play unit scored three times and looked healthy, which is more than can be said about the organization's defensemen. A 4-0 lead, with three goals coming on the power play, also looked healthy before Colorado scored three unanswered goals and put some serious late-game pressure on goalie Steve Mason. It was the Flyers' third straight win, all at home.

Flyers coach Craig Berube said he will decide after Saturday's morning skate if veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn returns to the lineup that night against visiting Colorado. On one hand, Berube knows Coburn would give the Flyers a defenseman who can keep up with the speedy Avs. On the other hand, if Coburn sits, he will have six more days before the Flyers play again, giving him more time to make sure his injured left foot is ready. Decisions, decisions. "Part of it will be his decision, too," Berube said after three Flyers - Coburn, Andrew MacDonald and Blair Jones - took part in an optional skate Friday at the team's Voorhees practice facility.

STEVE MASON sat in his stall, still dripping sweat, with a wet, blue towel draped over the back of his neck to provide some relief. His teammates had long since left the locker room, some had already conducted their postgame interviews. Mason barely had enough energy to untie his skates, his face flushed and pale as the ice on which he just earned the Flyers another two points. Even after taking a second to relax, Mason walked out of the Flyers' training room and said he felt as if his heart was racing "100 miles a minute.

DENVER - In the land of legalized marijuana, the Flyers got stoned by Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov on Thursday night. Varlamov made 29 saves as the Avalanche defeated the Flyers, 2-1, at the Pepsi Center. The 25-year-old goalie was especially effective when his team was shorthanded, making nine saves while the Flyers were on the power play. "Sometimes you run into a hot goalie and can't do anything about it," winger Scott Hartnell said. The Flyers, who lost rookie winger Michael Raffl to a concussion late in the first period, had their season-best four-game winning streak snapped.

DENVER - When the Flyers acquired former first-round pick Steve Downie back from the Avalanche for Max Talbot on Halloween, many around the hockey community threw up their hands in question. Colorado was 10-1-0 at the time. Why did the Avalanche believe that was the time to trade a player skating on its first line for a player best suited for the penalty kill? Soon after, multiple reports surfaced saying that Avalanche brass made the decision to move Downie after a questionable incident in training camp.

The Flyers bolstered their sagging offense and weakened their penalty-killing unit Thursday, reacquiring feisty right winger Steve Downie by sending forward Max Talbot to Colorado. "We needed something to stir the pot," said general manager Paul Holmgren, whose 3-8 team has scored two goals or fewer in 10 of the first 11 games. Downie, 26, likes to stir things. A physical player, he has been suspended twice in his NHL career, and he is known as one of the league's top agitators.

STEVE DOWNIE saw the writing on the wall. Entering training camp, Downie had a feeling he might not make it through training camp with the Avalanche. "You look at Colorado, with how many young players they've got there and a lot of money invested in them, I might be moved just because of my contract situation," Downie said. To be packing 11 games into the season, especially when your team is 10-1 and you're a member of the first line, is still a surprise. But when Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy told Downie he would be heading back to Philadelphia, any lingering shock turned to excitement.

The Panthers, who finished last in the NHL with a 15-27-6 mark, had the best odds of winning the lottery at 25 percent but had to settle for the No. 2 pick.
