DETROIT -- Bryan Murray can't win for losing, especially this time of year.At least that's the reputation he brings to the Stanley Cup playoffs in his first season as Detroit Red Wings coach and general manager.Though his career winning percentage ranks among the best in NHL history, Murray's teams are known for falling short of playoff expectations. In seven springs with the Washington Capitals, Murray's teams never finished lower than third, never totaled fewer than 85 points and never got out of their division in the playoffs.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Bryan Murray, who has been general manager in Anaheim two years, calls Paul Kariya "a Mighty Ducks lifer." Drafted fourth overall in 1993, Kariya has traveled through the good times and the bad and has experienced Anaheim's entire history. He's previously had chances to bail out on the organization and go to a winning team, but he always has decided to stay. Kariya's been the catalyst and poster boy for a franchise that was built from the ground up, a team that came into the league with the Florida Panthers and had to watch them go to the Stanley Cup Finals after just three years.

When the National Hockey League schedule came out a couple of months ago, Bryan Murray took a peek and noticed his Detroit Red Wings would be on the road for the first three games, then return home for their opener against Calgary.Tough schedule, he thought, especially for an inexperienced team coming off a last-place finish in the Norris Division.Upon closer inspection, he noted after facing New Jersey (a 3-3 tie last night), the Washington Capitals would be next up (tomorrow). It would be strange, going into the Cap Centre for about the millionth time and heading for the visitors' locker room.

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings coach Bryan Murray is sick of watching his team lose on the road, so general manager Bryan Murray is doing something about it."If things don't change, we're going to change faces," he said.He did after the Red Wings lost to the St. Louis Blues, 6-1, in St. Louis.He called up three players from Adirondack: defenseman Yves Racine, center John Chabot and Tom Bissett, a center apprenticing at left wing.And Murray might not be finished yet. He intends to talk with Buffalo general manager Gerry Meehan about acquiring former Red Wing Mike Foligno, the Sabres' captain.

When Bryan Murray got the word to vacate the coach's office of the Washington Capitals midway through the 1989-90 season, he shrugged and said, "It's all part of the game. I'll always have a great feeling for the Caps because they gave me the opportunity to coach in the NHL."Thing is, the man who led the team out of the bondage of a 138-323 record in its first eight seasons to a 318-218 mark over the next eight meant every word he B. Murray said. It may be recalled that his assistant and brother, Terry, took over at USAir Arena, so Bryan latched onto Doug MacLean as his right-hand man.Whereas Murray had made making the playoffs an annual thing for the Caps, he did the same thing in Detroit as coach and general manager of the Red Wings.

Until last week in Calgary, Langway, when healthy, never had missed a game in a Caps uniform. Now, he has sat out two of the last three and will not play this weekend."I discussed his role with the club," said Poile. "I told him he may not be playing every game.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals are not as invincible as it seemed.Last night before 18,130, the first sellout of the season at the Capital Centre, the Detroit Red Wings scored three third-period goals to deal the Capitals a 5-4 loss.The loss ended a three-game Washington winning streak, was only the second loss in seven Capital Centre games and dropped the Capitals out of first place in the Patrick Division, one point behind the New York Rangers, who tied the Toronto Maple Leafs, 3-3, last night.

When he took over from brother Bryan as coach of the Washington Capitals in midseason five years ago, Terry Murray realized almost instant success and the team went further than it ever had in postseason play.Even though the players knew Terry well, his having served as Bryan's assistant for years, a new spirit seemed to infect the club.The next year, pretty much the same thing happened in New Jersey, where Jim Schoenfeld was brought in to handle the Devils. The lads from Exit 16W on the New Jersey Turnpike, a perennial and unnoticed also-ran, not only made the playoffs, they set a team record for advancement, eliminating the Caps in the process.
