Shaded games at Miamj Arena; All times EDT Jagr Conference standings EASTERN CONFERENCE Palm Beach Post Wire Services MONTREAL Jaromir Jagr's goal at 4:02 of the third period sent Pittsburgh to a 1-0 victory against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night, extending the Penguins' unbeaten streak to eight games. The win allowed Pittsburgh to move ahead of Montreal into first place in the Northeast Division. The Penguins, who beat Montreal 6-3 in Pittsburgh on Saturday, are 7-0-1 in their past eight games. The Canadiens have lost three straight for the first time this season and are 1-5-1 in their last seven. Pittsburgh goalie Tom Barrasso stopped 25 shots for his fourth shutout this season. Barrasso stopped a 2-on-l break by Marc Bureau and Stephane Richer in the second period to keep the game scoreless. In the third, Montreal defenseman Patrice Brisebois misplayed a puck at the point, allowing Alexei Morozov and Jagr to come in on Canadiens goalie Jocelyn Thibault. Dave Manson broke up a pass, but Morozov slipped the loose puck out to Jagr in front for his 11th goal. The Canadiens played their 5,000th regular-season game since the NHL began in 1917. The Toronto Maple Leafs, another original NHL club, play their 5,000th game Saturday. B Flames 3, Sharks 2 (OT): German Titov scored 1:22 into overtime, giving host Calgary over San Jose. Michael Nylander intercepted a clearing attempt along the San Jose boards and found Titov uncovered in the slot, where he beat goaltender Mike Vernon between the pads. The loss spoiled the return to Calgary for Vernon, who made his first start in his hometown since being traded from the Flames to Detroit on June 29, 1994. Vernon, who played nine seasons for Calgary, finished with 25 saves. Jarome Iginla and Jamie Allison also scored for the Flames, who are unbeaten in four games (2-0-2). B Sabres 1, Flyers 1 (OT): Brian Hol-zinger scored a third-period goal and Dominik Hasek made 25 saves to give Buffalo its tie at Philadelphia. , Eric Lindros scored for the Flyers, who got ' 16 saves from Garth Snow to remain undefeat-1 ed in their past four games (2-0-2). The Sabres ! are undefeated in eight overtime games this ; season (2-0-6). Philadelphia picked up a penalty for too ! many men on the ice with 50 seconds left in the ', third period, but was able to kill it. Buffalo got the only shot in overtime. ' Holzinger tied the game with a goal 4:34 1 into the third period. ! B Hurricanes 3, Bruins 1: Defenseman , Glen Wesley scored two goals against his old i team to lead Carolina past Boston in Greens- ' boro, N.C. ; Wesley's goal at 2:09 of the second period j was his third this season and proved to be the game-winner against Boston, which traded him ! to the then-Hartford Whalers in 1994. !

The Sirotas are at Gulfstream Park for the 1998 season with six horses, most of them routed to Keith through contacts made on the Internet. His horses have won 10-of-66 races this year, Steve Richardson, the owner of a detective agency in Tampa, is another Internet prize. A $16,000 claimer picked out for Richardson by Sirota won a $24,000 race and paid $23 the first time she ran under the new management team. The unconventional has always appealed to Sirota. B He went to college in Indiana, far from his New Jersey home, because he had a chance to be a varsity wrestler there. B He took a summer job at the track for $75 a week as a teen-age stablehand. He liked it so well that he moved in at Monmouth, sleeping in an empty stall. B He met his wife-to-be in the track kitchen at Hialeah Park. An exercise rider from Argentina, she spoke no English. His Spanish was just as limited. "Now we're a team," he said. "The computer gave me a life," said Sirota. "Without the computer I would have nothing. Td be off the track." By Brian Biggane Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Florida Panthers left winger Kirk Muller received an indefinite suspension which both he and coach Bryan Murray hope will amount to one game Monday for high-sticking in Sunday's game at New York. Muller got tangled up with New York forward Niklas Sund-strom in front of the Rangers' net late in the first period. Muller then responded to an apparent Sundstrom hook by wildly swinging his stick, connecting with Sundstrom's head. "The only thing I can say is we were battling for the 20 seconds before that, Muller said as he sat out Monday's game. "I was trying to break free and he was holding me. The last thing I wanted to do was hit him in the head." Referee Kerry Fraser gave Muller only a two-minute mi nor, but Rangers coach Colin Campbell said he would submit tape of the incident to the league. The NHL issued an indefinite suspension; Vice Presi dent of Operations Brian Burke will conduct a hearing today. It does look like a big-time hit on the tape," Murray said. Tkachuk does PANTHERS From 1C have chances, but we don't have anyone scoring on a .regular basis like that. That's why they pay those guys a lot of money." Ihe guys a superstar, added Fitzpatrick, who had no chance on the game-winner when Tkachuk deflected Teppo Numminen's long shot from the blueline past him. Tkachuk gave Phoenix leads of 1-0 and 2-1 early in the first and second periods, respectively, but Florida came back to tie both times. Despite a 11W advantage in shots m the third, however, the Panthers were unable to do it a third time. The loss leaves the Pan thers winless in three straight and 1-2-1 in four games under Murray. Of the Coyotes eight shots in the first period, Tkachuk had half of them, including the one that gave Phoenix a short-lived 1-0 lead at 7:18. Craig Janney, the Coyotes' assist leader with 17, set up a la Wayne Gretzky behind the net and, given room to operate by Murphy, patiently waited for Tkachuk to get into position to ine ngni oi r itzpatnck. lie then flipped a pass over Ed Jovanovs-ki's stick that Tkachuk shot home to the far side. Florida, whose power play came into the game a promisine 2-for-8 under Murray, got a pair Panthers notebook "But I didn't think from watching that it was what it appears to be." "I know you've got to be in control of your stick, and of that I was in violation," Muller admitted. "But I didn't even try to hit him." Muller had never been suspended in a 14-year NHL career that has comprised 988 games and five different teams. He's struggled through a difficult season so far, totaling no goals and seven assists. The last Panthers player to be suspended was Ed Jovan-ovski, who got three games early last season for leaving the penalty box. DNHL meets in Palm Beach: The NHL Board of Governors will hold its annual meeting today and Wednesday at The Breakers in Palm Beach. Panthers owner Wayne Hui-zenga and President Bill Torrey will represent the team. The possible move of Toronto to the Eastern Conference next season instead of the 2003-04 season as now scheduled tops the agenda. in Panthers of power-play opportunities eight seconds apart and converted the second. The Panthers worked the puck around the offensive zone until it wound up on the stick of Ray Whitney, who let go a hard shot from the high slot that goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin stopped but couldn't cover. Scott Melianby slipped the rebound through Khabibulin's pads, and Washburn whipped it the final 18 inches into the net at 16:22. Tkachuk put Phoenix back on top at 1:43 of the second, slipping the rebound of a Dallas Drake shot into a small hole between Fitzpatrick's skates and the left post. But rather than discouraging the Panthers, that goal seemed to energize them. Robert Svehla and Johan Garpenlov both had good chances around the four-minute mark, but Svehla put the rebound of a Fitzgerald shot over the net and Garpenlov was stopped by Khabibulin off a nice pass byjody Hull. But Hull set up Garpenlov again moments later, and this time he scored. Hull pulled a puck off the boards and got it to David Ne-mirovsky at the right faceoff circle. Nemirovsky got it to Garpenlov, and his quick shot went through both defenseman Gerald Diduck and the legs of Khabibulin, trickling across the line just inside the far post.

Islanders, and goalie Guy Hebert' of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. , - Those selections meant that all but three members of the Olympic roster were holdovers from the U.S. team that upset Canada to win the World Cup last year. Berard and Carney are new, as is goalie John Vanbiesbrouck of the Florida Panthers, who was chosen in the initial phase last month. ; All 23 players have represented the United States in international competition, and LaFon-taine, a member of the 1984 Olympic team, was the fifth U.S. player with Olympic experience chosen to the Nagano roster. "You can never, ever de-emphasize the importance of experience," Lamoriello said. "It's not only talent. There's a certain chemistry, too." There's plenty of talent, though. The U.S. squad, led by Brett Hull of St. Louis and Tony Amonte of Chicago, is full of speed, scoring and size, and tailored for the bigger ice sheets of international play.
