Gainey moving aside Bob Gainey is stepping down as general manager of the Montreal Canadiens and is being replaced by Pierre Gauthier, team president Pierre Boivin said yesterday. Gainey will remain with the team as a special counsel. Gauthier was the assistant general manager under Gainey, who starred for the Habs from 1973 to 1989. The Hall of Famer rejoined the team as GM after the 2002-03 season. Montreal made the playoffs in four out of five seasons during Gainey's tenure.

Ville Leino took a devastating midice hip check from Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell only 7 minutes, 16 seconds into the game. He sat out much of the rest of the first period, but recovered well enough to score the game-winner. Would the Blackhawks really have been given a two-man advantage in the third period of a finals game if the score hadn't been 4-1? What would a team leading a finals game 4-1 have to do to get a late power play? Discuss. The Flyers' late sloppiness detracted from Michael Leighton's evening, but he made some big stops, including a deflection when the score was 4-3. Much earlier, with the Flyers leading, just 1-0, Leighton made a pair of strong stops on Tomas Kopecky.

The Chicago Blackhawks are one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1992, thanks to 257-pound playoff dynamo Dustin Byfuglien. Byfuglien scored his seventh goal of this postseason 12:24 into overtime last night and the host Blackhawks beat the San Jose Sharks, 3-2, to take a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals. The Blackhawks can finish the sweep with a victory tomorrow at the United Center. Byfuglien went straight down the middle and took a nice pass from Dave Bolland, who was behind the net, to beat Evgeni Nabokov and set off a deafening roar from the crowd of 22,311.

Television analyst Don Cherry criticized Alex Ovechkin's exuberant goal-scoring celebrations, and Ovechkin fired back yesterday. "He's a funny guy and an old guy," Ovechkin said. "He's not interesting to me, so he can say whatever he wants. I don't care about him. " Cherry came down on the Russian on Saturday during his "Coach's Corner" segment of "Hockey Night in Canada" on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. He was critical of Ovechkin's antics when he scores, callingit "goofy stuff.

BOSTON - Entering Wednesday's game against the Bruins, the Flyers were having the same trouble that plagued them last season: finding the back of the net. They ranked 21st in goals scored last season. They finally began to snap out of it in a come-from-behind, 5-4 overtime win over the Bruins, but in their first five games (2-2-1), they had scored just eight goals. Good goaltending helped earn a pair of wins last week, but the 1.6 goals per game average through five games was an issue.

IT LOOKED exactly like one might expect it to look after a five-day break from game action. At least for the first 40 minutes. The Flyers returned to the ice Tuesday night for a game for the first time since shutting out the defending Stanley Cup champions last Wednesday. And they were sluggish early, in almost a predictable fashion. They started slow, looked out of sorts on their usually sound power play early in the game, and didn't have much jump early, never catching up in a 2-1 loss to the visiting Dallas Stars.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Maybe it's a coincidence, but Steve Mason's game has gotten back on track ever since he had a conversation Sunday with the greatest goalie in Flyers history, Bernie Parent. Mason talked with Parent at length while they were at the Flyers Wives Carnival. At the time, Mason was in the middle of his first slump since he was acquired from Columbus late last season: a 4.56 goals-against average and a .851 save percentage in a six-game stretch. After that tailspin, Mason put together three straight strong efforts - all after he had a talk with Parent and goalie coach Jeff Reese.

COREY CRAWFORD was in the stands when Patrick Kane slammed home the goal that secured the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. A year later, Tuukka Rask was just a practice player when Tim Thomas led the Boston Bruins to the title. Fast forward to tonight at the United Center, and Crawford and Rask will be in goal when the Blackhawks host the Bruins in Game 1 of the Cup finals. It's been a long road, but that little taste of the Stanley Cup turned into much more for two of the most important players for this series.

JUSTIN WILLIAMS scored two goals in the second period, and the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings advanced to the Western Conference finals with a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 last night in Los Angeles. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves as the Kings finished off the agonizingly even series with their 14th consecutive home victory over the past 2 months, including seven straight in the postseason. The home team won all seven games in the thrilling all-California series, and the fifth-seeded Kings barely rode their home-ice advantage to victory in their first potential elimination game in the last 2 years.

IN THE long, storied Original Six history of the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers, the latest chapter will hardly be remembered fondly - by anyone. The Canadiens, however, left Madison Square Garden as the happier of the teams after they rallied to gut out a 3-1 win Tuesday night that stretched Montreal's winning streak to five and ended the Rangers' run at points at five (4-0-1). "I thought it was probably one of the worst hockey games I've been involved in. Both teams," terse Rangers coach John Tortorella said.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Pedestrians in downtown San Jose are greeted by a welcoming recording of a bird's tweet, signifying it's safe to cross the street. San Jose goalie Antti Niemi wasn't as welcoming on Tuesday night. The Flyers, the NHL's highest-scoring team, were shut out for the second time in three games as they fell to the Sharks, 1-0, in front of a sellout crowd at HP Pavilion. In a tight-checking, playoff-type game, Niemi made 26 saves and notched his fifth shutout of the season; it was his first game against the Flyers since he defeated them in the Stanley Cup Finals for Chicago in 2010.

TAMPA, Fla. - Mike Smith has joined Simon Gagne in hurting the Boston Bruins during the postseason. Smith was perfect in relief of goalie Dwayne Roloson, and former Flyer Gagne snapped a tie in the third period for the Tampa Bay Lightning, who erased an early three-goal deficit and evened the Eastern Conference finals with a 5-3 win in Game 4 over the Bruins on Saturday. Roloson was pulled in the first period after he allowed three goals on nine shots. Smith came on and made 21 saves as the Lightning avoided dropping into a big hole against the surging Bruins.
