MAKING IT to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs is a sweet present for the Flyers’ James Van Riemsdyk, especially after a concussion and a broken foot put a damper on his 2012 season. The forward scores his way to 23 on Friday. The stars say focus on the present, so JVR should keep his mind on the game. He can rest up after the Flyers win the Stanley Cup (wink, wink). Adrian Pasdar of “The Lying Game” bluffs his way to 47 on Monday. He has a reason to smile: ABC Family just picked up his show for another season. Former Flyer Ron Hextall has saved 48 years Thursday. And Phillies colorman Larry Anderson announces 59 on Sunday.
