The Chicago Blackhawks were sued yesterday by a season ticketholder who claims the team violated the Consumer Fraud Act by failing to give full refunds to fans after the NHL lockout. Darryl Taggart claims that at the time the Blackhawks were selling season tickets, team officials knew reaching a collective bargaining agreement with players was unlikely. The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, contends the Blackhawks have not refunded the $1,000 premium paid by season ticketholders in the "club section.

Doug Gilmour scored two third-period goals, and goaltender Mike Vernon stopped 21 shots last night to help the Calgary Flames defeat the Los Angeles Kings, 5-2, and take a 3-0 lead in the Smythe Division final. Calgary can sweep the Kings tomorrow night, when the best-of-seven series resumes at the Forum. After Los Angeles closed to within 2-1 on Tom Laidlaw's goal 47 seconds into the final period, Gilmour - who won Game 1 with an overtime goal - made it 3-1 with 6 minutes, 16 seconds to go when he backhanded a shot past Los Angeles goalie Kelly Hrudey.

Say it ain't so, Joe He may not be Joltin' personality-wise, but Joe knows how to make an electrifying fashion statement. Rays manager Joe Maddon proved he was ahead of his time in hoodie-gate when MLB relented. We've had the Elmer Fudd hat, the Elvis Costello/Kurt Rambis X-ray specs. Somehow it all made him seem more cool. But now he has committed the Mother of all Faux Pas. The Rays wore Blackhawks jerseys on their flight to Toronto for Monday's game. Maddon received a replica of Chicago forward John Madden's uniform.

THE CHICAGO Blackhawks used a strong start against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday to keep their strong start to the season on a roll. Brent Seabrook and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and an assist to help the Blackhawks beat the visiting Kings, 3-2, extending their season-opening points streak to 15 games. Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks (12-0-3), who matched the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers for the second-longest, season-opening points streak in NHL history. Chicago is one away from the tying the league record set by Anaheim in 2006-07 and will try to match the mark on Tuesday when it hosts Vancouver.

LOS ANGELES -     Kings center Mike Richards missed the game with an apparent head injury. It was the second consecutive game the former Flyer missed. Richards received a big hit from Chicago's Dave Bolland late in Game 1, and didn't play in Game 2 on Sunday despite participating in pregame warmups. Richards hadn't missed a game all season. Richards has 10 points in the playoffs.

THE PICK Blackhawks in 6 The reason: This is an incredibly difficult series to predict. All along, my gut has told me Chicago is the league's best overall team - which would make me lean toward them in this matchup. But I never imagined the Bruins would have swept such a deep Penguins team out of the playoffs in the fashion they did last week. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jarome Iginla and Kris Letang were all muzzled so cleanly. Boston's road has been rather easy, though, when you consider the Bruins faced rather mediocre Maple Leaf and Ranger clubs, before dismantling the Pens.

Call them the Chicago Clutchhawks. Including the first two Finals escapes against the Flyers, Chicago has won 10 straight playoff games in which it was tied or separated by one goal during the third period. "No matter what situation we're in, we're not going to get overwhelmed," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. Flyers left winger/agitator Dan Carcillo, who took an ill-advised early penalty Monday but recovered and played well is his Finals debut, has become Public Enemy No. 1 in Chicago.

COREY CRAWFORD came away with the shutout in this one, not Brian Elliott. Chicago's goalie stopped 30 shots and Bryan Bickell and Marian Hossa scored to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a 2-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday, ending Elliott's bid for a fourth straight shutout. "I felt good today, but I think the main thing is everyone is playing well," Crawford said after his third shutout of the season. "We need everyone to play well every night and so far this year it's been pretty much that for every game.

Chicago's Tony Armonte did a nice job working himself free in the slot before slipping the game-winning shot through the legs of Calgary goalie Trevor Kidd in overtime. But Armonte insisted fancy footwork didn't get the puck in the net. That perfect pass from teammate Jeremy Roenick did. "Jeremy's one of the best passers in the game and it's a pleasure to play with him," Amonte said as the Blackhawks defeated host Calgary last night, 4-3. "We worked hard tonight and it's a great victory.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, in their only Wells Fargo appearance of the season, will provide a major challenge for the Flyers on Wednesday. "They have great skills, great players and a very good power play," goalie Michal Neuvirth said after taking part in an optional practice Tuesday in Voorhees. "We have to make sure we don't spend too much time in the penalty box. " Starting goalie Steve Mason, who missed Monday's 1-0 win over Florida because of a family matter, will take part in Wednesday's morning skate, but the Flyers wouldn't say if we would play in the game.

LAST WEEK, when Kimmo Timonen went to Chicago to take part in the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup celebration leading up to the new season, the 40-year-old was not simply taking part in the festivities. Sure, he went to a ring ceremony, then he was at United Center last Wednesday watching the team's banner unveiling and saw his name on the Cup. But he was also testing himself. When he went to Chicago's morning skate that day, he walked around the locker room for about 10 minutes. "I wanted to see if I got any kind of itch to put my gear on and go out there, but I didn't," Timonen said on a conference call over the weekend.

LIGHTNING CAPTAIN Steven Stamkos, one of the great young players in the game, pointed out that Chicago's experience and familiarity with each other is the primary reason the Blackhawks are gunning for their third title in six years. "It's almost like the Harlem Globetrotters out there at times on the ice, the way they can pass it," Stamkos said. "You can see they've played together for a while. " They split a pair of meetings this season, with the home team winning each. Here are 15 more things to know about the Stanley Cup finals, which begin tonight in Tampa: 1 Four of Tyler Johnson's 12 goals this postseason have been game-winners for the Lightning.

The fact that Chicago will meet Tampa Bay in the Stanley Cup Finals is a mixed bag for the Flyers. The good news: Because the Blackhawks reached the Finals on Saturday with a 5-3 win over Anaheim, the Flyers will receive the maximum return in the Kimmo Timonen trade: second-round draft picks this year and in 2016. The bad news: With Tampa Bay winning the Eastern Conference, the first-round pick the Flyers will receive from the Braydon Coburn trade will be 29th or 30th. It could have been as high as 22d. Timonen, 40, was sidelined by blood clots when he was with the Flyers this season.

Without being a participant, the Flyers are making progress in the Stanley Cup playoffs. That's because Chicago and surprising Detroit are leading their respective series. If both teams advance, it could help the Flyers get better picks in the next two drafts. The Flyers own Tampa Bay's first pick in the draft on June 26, a selection they acquired in the Braydon Coburn deal. Tampa Bay trails Detroit, two games to one, in their best-of-seven series. If the Lightning lose, they could fall as low as No. 22, and the Flyers would get that pick in the first round in addition to their own No. 7 selection.

The enigmatic Flyers upstaged Kimmo Timonen's emotional return to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night. Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th goal as a Flyer, Claude Giroux netted his first even-strength home tally of the season, and Steve Mason stopped 34 of 35 shots in a 4-1 victory over the powerful Chicago Blackhawks at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, who snapped a four-game losing streak, are 9-1-4 in their last 14 games against teams in playoff position. Conversely, they are 0-6-3 in their last nine games against teams that were not in playoff position when they met. "At this point, winning still feels good, but it's a sobering feeling where we are in the standings," Mason said.

When Kimmo Timonen was working out and trying to return to the lineup after being sidelined by blood clots, he dreamed of skating onto the Wells Fargo Center ice this spring and being in the thick of a playoff race. On Wednesday, the veteran defenseman will get that chance. Timonen had hoped to do it for the Flyers. Instead, he and his Chicago Blackhawks will be facing the Orange and Black. The Flyers dealt Timonen, now 40, to Chicago last month for a second-round draft pick in June and a conditional selection that could be a second-rounder in 2016.
