16-Game Streak Ends For Richter

NEW YORK -- Patrick Poulin's goal with 2:44 remaining in the third period gave the Tampa Bay Lightning a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers, snapping goaltender Mike Richter's unbeaten streak at 16 games.

Poulin scored shortly after Rangers forward Luc Robitaille was pulled down from behind on a breakaway by Cory Cross. No penalty was called, and in the ensuing rush Poulin converted Alexander Selivanov's rebound for his eighth goal of the season.

New York's Alexei Kovalev hurt his right knee shortly after scoring in the second period. He will have the knee examined Thursday.

Devils 1, Avalanche 1. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Rene Corbet scored on a third-period breakaway to give Colorado a tie, extending the Avalanche's unbeaten streak to eight.

The tie was the third straight for injury-plagued Colorado (5-0-3), which got 32 saves from backup goalie and former Devil Craig Billington.

Martin Brodeur made 34 saves for New Jersey, which is 1-3-1 in its last five games. Dave Andreychuk scored the Devils' goal in the second period.


Allegations of sexual misconduct have surfaced involving the late Brian Shaw, one of the Western Hockey League's most respected governors.

Shaw, the former owner of the Portland Winter Hawks and the Edmonton Oil Kings, died in 1993. The allegations come on the heels of Graham James' conviction for sexually assaulting two of his players on a total of 350 occasions.

Jim Harrison, who played eight years in the NHL, said Shaw made sexual advances toward him in 1974 while Shaw coached the Edmonton Oilers of the World Hockey Association.

"He used to come in the dressing room all the time when guys were injured,'' Harrison said. "He'd want to rub their legs and that kind of thing.''

Harrison said Shaw, who left the junior Oil Kings for a coaching position with the WHA Oilers in 1973-74, made an advance in the team's dressing room during training for the 1974-75 season.
