If the Vancouver Canucks are going to overcome a 2-1 deficit and defeat the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup finals, Vancouver winger Pavel Bure must be what he was in the first three rounds of the playoffs - the best forward on the ice. Just as the fog pressed down on the snow-capped mountains above Vancouver yesterday, that burden is pressing down on Bure's shoulders, with Game 4 scheduled for tonight at Pacific Coliseum. Bure, a 23-year-old Russian, shrugged his way through several questions at a media inquisition, giving no insight into how he will find the open ice and avoid dumb penalties such as the major plus a game misconduct he took in Game 3 for high-sticking Jay Wells.

Ulf Dahlen picked the right time to score his first career hat trick. Dahlen's three goals complemented San Jose's stifling defense as the Sharks beat the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-2, last night to take a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series. The teams meet again tomorrow in Game 4 of their best-of-seven series. Using an aggressive checking defense in the neutral zone, the Sharks kept Toronto's scoring opportunities to a minimum and made the most of their own. Dahlen capped the scoring with 2:22 remaining after taking a lead pass from Tom Pederson.

The line you had to stand in to walk past the roped-off Stanley Cup, on display at a downtown hotel, snaked out the door and around the corner. Maybe Vancouver Canucks coach Pat Quinn should have nabbed a spot in that line for his team yesterday. The championship finals are slipping away from the Canucks, who stole Game 1 in overtime but have lost Game 2 and Game 3, making Game 4 tomorrow night at Pacific Coliseum almost a must-win for them. The Canucks, a 1970 expansion team, never have won the Cup. In fact, none of Vancouver's stars ever has been in the finals.

The Flyers' current joy ride through the NHL hit a speed bump when all-star defenseman Mark Howe returned home from Los Angeles yesterday with a lower back strain. Howe, who has five goals and eight assists in the last nine games, wrenched his back during the Flyers' 8-6 victory over the Kings on Saturday night at the Forum. He will miss tonight's game against Vancouver at the Pacific Coliseum (Channel 57, 10:35 p.m.), Thursday's contest in Calgary and Friday's game in Edmonton, but he may return when the Flyers end their six-game road trip Sunday in New Jersey.

The Canucks' Rich Sutter escaped serious injury when he was dangerously crosschecked into the boards by the Flyers' Craig Berube late in the second period of Vancouver's 5-3 victory last night. Sutter was thrust headfirst into the boards while chasing down a deflected dump-in to the corner. The blow, delivered in the back, produced a frightening whiplash effect. Sutter rolled over kicking his legs and was removed from the ice on a gurney as a precaution. Incredibly, he suffered only a hyperextension of the back and walked out of the Pacific Coliseum after the game.

The Streak meets The Surprise tonight as the energized Flyers take on the Vancouver Canucks and find out if their winning ways will continue. The Canucks raced onto the ice this season and right to the top of the Smythe Division. The Canucks have won 20 games and opened up a six-point lead over equally surprising Winnipeg and nine over third-place Edmonton in the division standings. A win would be a major boost for the Flyers, who go into the game with a three-game winning streak, their longest of this unpredictable season.

Pavel Bure scored two goals as the host Vancouver Canucks beat the Dallas Stars last night, 4-2, and advanced to the Western Conference finals. The Canucks won for the seventh time in eight games as they closed out the Western Conference semifinal series, 4-1. Vancouver returned to the conference final for the first time since 1982. The Canucks meet the winner of the Toronto-San Jose semifinal that the underdog Sharks lead, 3-2. Nathan La Fayette and Bure scored in the first period, Murray Craven in the second and Bure again the third.

The sudden, exhilarating bursts of speed that make Vancouver's Pavel Bure the most entertaining player in hockey have been sporadic in the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals. But that has not been such terrible news for the Western Conference champions. The Canucks still were able to get a split of the first two games at Madison Square Garden, even though the 23-year-old Bure - nicknamed the Russian Rocket - was held without a goal in New York and had his playoff scoring streak stopped at 16 games in Thursday's 3-1 Rangers victory, which tied the series at 1-1. So look out for Bure tonight.

By winning Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, the Vancouver Canucks either performed a cruel act of spite or took a giant step toward dealing the Rangers the most bitter playoff defeat in their 68-year history. Tonight we will learn more about that. Tonight when the Rangers and Canucks meet in Game 6 at the Pacific Coliseum, we will get a better idea of whether to toss that "1940" chant away for good or just put it in the closet until next season.

Despite their success in getting to the Stanley Cup finals, the Vancouver Canucks still have to convince some people that they belong there. Among those remaining unconvinced, apparently, are the Canucks themselves. Coach Pat Quinn said yesterday that the Canucks had fallen behind the New York Rangers in this best-of-seven series, two games to one, partly because they were still "in awe of the Rangers. " "We have to convince our guys we ought to be here," Quinn said. "I think there is still a learning curve that we're going through, and hopefully we can learn fast.

VANCOUVER - Andrej Meszaros had not been to Vancouver in more than 5 years before arriving in Canada's Pacific Northwest on Sunday morning with the Flyers. On Monday night, as he dropped a ceremonial first puck and watched his name be unfurled in the Vancouver Giants' Ring of Honour at the Pacific Coliseum, Meszaros felt like he was back home. Meszaros spent just 1 year skating in juniors with the Giants, so he was surprised to receive the call, but he says Vancouver is where he became a man. "It was a very nice moment, I was really honored that the organization did that for me," Meszaros said.

It was the type of goal that you remember for a season, if not a lifetime. One that can make a season, if not a spring. One that sent the Flyers into a tizzy deep into a foggy night. It came at the 2-minute, 34-second mark of overtime, of course, and it came to defeat the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2, and make this two-game trip through northwest Canada a fulfilling one. And it came, from all people, Adam Burt, the burly defenseman who had not scored this season. The Flyers, who tied the game at 2 midway through the third period on a goal by rookie Simon Gagne, had been stoned for most of the night by ex-teammate Garth Snow.

All but dead and buried just four days ago, the amazing Vancouver Canucks stalked back from the graveyard last night and kicked dirt in the stunned faces of the New York Rangers. The favored Rangers were supposed to give the upstart Canucks an indecent and quick sendoff in these Stanley Cup finals. And last night, they were expected to pound that final nail into the cofffin. But defenseman Jeff Brown and winger Geoff Courtnall scored two goals each, and the never-say-die Canucks defeated the staggering Rangers, 4-1, at rowdy, tumultuous Pacific Coliseum.

The Vancouver Canucks arrived at Madison Square Garden last night with a police escort. They left on top of the world, dragging the broken hearts of thousands of New Yorkers behind them. After one of the most electrifying and nerve-racking third periods in the history of the Stanley Cup finals, the Canucks survived elimination by defeating the New York Rangers, 6-3, in Game 5 at Madison Square Garden. In a stirring display of desperate hockey played by men on separate but interwoven missions, the teams combined for eight goals in the third period to tie a league record.

New York Rangers center Mark Messier says that winning games in the Stanley Cup finals is like taking "baby steps" - one game, one goal, one shift at a time. Last night, the Rangers took a giant step. After a power-play goal by Alexei Kovalev with 4 minutes, 55 seconds left in a rollicking third period, the Rangers slipped past the Vancouver Canucks, 4-2, in Game 4 at the rocking Pacific Coliseum. The victory gave the Rangers a three-games-to-one edge in this best-of- seven series.

When the Stanley Cup finals resume tonight at the Pacific Coliseum, the Vancouver Canucks will face two big chores: putting the wraps on Brian Leetch and shooting some pucks past Mike Richter. So far, they've been unable to do either with much consistency. The New York Rangers lead the best-of-seven finals by two games to one primarily because Leetch and Richter have been two of the brightest stars in the series. Leetch, a defenseman, skates up and down the ice, scoring goals and knocking the other team's forwards off-balance and into the corners.
