Because of its sports teams' futility in the early 1970s, Philadelphia was known as the City of Losers. Rick MacLeish and the Flyers helped change that image and started a renaissance on the Philly sports scene with their unexpected march to the 1974 Stanley Cup. MacLeish, 66, died Monday after battling numerous medical problems that hospitalized him for about nine weeks. In Flyers history, the magnitude of MacLeish's impact is not appreciated until you talk to his teammates.

Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky was fined $10,000, the maximum allowed under the new NHL collective bargaining agreement, for boarding Los Angeles' Rob Scuderi in Columbus' 4-2 home loss to the Kings on Tuesday. Bruins edge the Canadiens Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2 minutes, 5 seconds of the third period, lifting the visiting Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. The victory moved the Bruins into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal from taking over the division lead.

Wayne Simmonds has blossomed into one of the league's most consistent right wingers, but if it wasn't for a trailblazer named Willie O'Ree, the Flyers forward might never have dreamed of reaching the NHL. O'Ree, who in 1958 became the NHL's first black player, made Simmonds believe at a young age that playing pro hockey was a possibility. "He had an effect on every single player of color coming into this league," Simmonds said before a recent game. "Without him, we wouldn't even be in this league . . . so there's a lot of respect I have for Mr. O'Ree.

Mats Zuccarello scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the host New York Rangers overcame another two-goal performance by Toronto's Phil Kessel to beat the Maple Leafs, 3-2, on Wednesday night. The Rangers moved back into a tie for seventh in the Eastern Conference. Zuccarello, called out before the game by coach John Tortorella to score more, connected in the second round of the tiebreaker against James Reimer. Henrik Lundqvist turned aside all three Toronto shooters.   Bruins edge Devils Gregory Campbell scored twice in a three-goal first period, and the visiting Boston Bruins regained first place in the Northeast Division with a 5-4 victory over the reeling New Jersey Devils.

Brenden Morrow scored two goals for the second straight game as the host Penguins beat the Montreal Canadiens, 6-4, Wednesday night to move closer to clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Brandon Sutter added two goals for Pittsburgh, and newly acquired Jarome Iginla and Doug Murray also scored for the Penguins, who had little trouble with Montreal despite playing without injured stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 31 shots, and Pittsburgh dominated in racing to a quick 4-0 lead.

Brandon Dubinsky scored shortly after a fight-filled opening faceoff, and the host New York Rangers became the first Eastern Conference team to earn a playoff spot by beating the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, on Monday night. Three fights broke out at the outset and that seemed to jump-start the Rangers, who had lost two straight and five of seven as their once commanding lead in the East dwindled to almost nothing.   Bruins shut out Leafs Benoit Pouliot scored two goals, Brian Rolston had a goal and three assists and the host Boston Bruins completed a six-game season sweep of the Toronto Maple Leafs with a 8-0 win. The Bruins' superiority was so complete that after two periods they had as many goals as the Maple Leafs had shots.

Fifty years ago Tuesday, Ed Snider, Jerry Wolman and others brought an NHL expansion team to Philadelphia. The Snider-Wolman relationship didn't last long. The Flyers? Their relationship with fans grew as they became one of the league's elite franchises. You could look it up. Since their first season in 1967-68 - a year after the franchise was awarded - the Flyers have a 1,877-1,304-588 record, a winning percentage of .576. Only the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins have a better winning percentage in that span (both at .601)

For the Flyers, Operation Playoff Push is gaining momentum.

The win moved them within two points of Boston in the crowded race for an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The most alluring reason to watch the Flyers this season, the player who represents the best-case glimpse at their future, took the ice with his teammates at the Skate Zone for practice Tuesday. Seeing rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere skate during a brief and light workout was an indication that maybe his mysterious "lower-body injury" had healed enough for him to play Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins. As it turned out, it had not. General manager Ron Hextall announced after practice that Gostisbehere - who has seven goals, including three in overtime, and 16 points in 23 games - would be out of the lineup against the Bruins.

THE TWO lasting memories of being a Flyer, in Simon Gagne's mind, are pretty fitting ones, mostly because of the way they bookend his significant time in Philadelphia. The first, he told reporters on a conference call Friday, was his rookie season. The 1999-2000 season, a year after the Flyers selected the Quebec native 22nd overall, saw the Flyers fall one game short of reaching the Stanley Cup Final. But Gagne scored 20 goals and tallied 28 assists that season, turning 20 in February.

FOR ALL intents and purposes, Simon Gagne's career was over in December, when he left the Boston Bruins to care for his late father, Pierre, who was losing his battle with liver cancer. His last game with the Bruins was Dec. 6. Fittingly, he scored a goal, one of just three he scored in his 23 games last season. He took a leave of absence following that game in Arizona and never returned to the Bruins after his father passed away the day after Christmas. Yesterday morning, Gagne officially decided to call it a career.

The Flyers might have trouble beating sub-.500 teams, but they continue to be competitive against playoff-bound squads. For the third game in a row, the Flyers earned points against a team in line for the postseason with a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers are four points behind the Boston Bruins for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. That brings added significance to Saturday's game in Boston. After falling to subpar teams Carolina and Toronto, the Flyers beat the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers, on Saturday, suffered an overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday and beat the Blues, who are third in the Western Conference.

The Flyers lost more than a hockey game Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. A lot more. They lost the services of talented goalie Steve Mason for an undetermined amount of time. Mason, who took the league's fourth-best save percentage (.933) in even-strength situations into the game, suffered an apparent injury to his right knee in the opening period of the Flyers' 3-1 loss to the tight-checking Boston Bruins. The Flyers would say only that Mason suffered a lower-body injury and would be reevaluated Sunday.
