Flyers center Jeff Carter was among the 60,000-plus sun-baked fans who were treated to a rare NASCAR doubleheader at Dover International Speedway yesterday, with enough on-track skirmishes to mangle a garage full of sheet metal and strain at least one team's camaraderie. "This is wild, this is the best," Carter said from a suite above the start/finish line. Even the sight of Brian Keselowski's No. 26 black Dodge Charger - carrying the Detroit Red Wings logo on the hood, "Go Wings" on the rear quarterpanels, and "Hockeytown" across the back bumper - couldn't put a damper on Carter's enthusiasm.

Brad Keselowski had hardly won the 2012 Sprint Cup Series championship when he started putting together a plan to win in 2013. With a giant celebratory beer in hand, Keselowski announced on ESPN's SportsCenter that he'd have the outline ready for team owner Roger Penske by Christmas. In an appearance Thursday, Keselowski said that agenda has steadily grown since the start of the 2013 season, perhaps more than he'd like. Keselowski's team hasn't been able to get out of its own way. Last weekend at Dover, Keselowski finally seemed ready to move on from the suspension of his crew chief and a damaging 25-point penalty.

LOUDON, N.H. - Tony Stewart made it 2-for-2 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, pulling ahead when Clint Bowyer ran out of gas with two laps left to win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway yesterday. Stewart is on a roll when the season matters most, following last week's Chase opening victory at Chicagoland Speedway with another strong performance at New Hampshire. Both of his victories this season have come in the Chase and have propelled him to the top of the points standings.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - That'll teach everyone to count out Jimmie Johnson. The five-time defending Cup champion dominated yesterday at Kansas Speedway, weathering a series of late cautions and holding off Kasey Kahne to win for the first time since April. Johnson stumbled through the first two races in NASCAR's version of a postseason, and was 10th in the standings heading to Dover. A second-place finish last weekend gave Johnson confidence, and his first win since Talladega moved him into third in the Chase behind Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick.

LONG POND, Pa. - Brad Keselowski led the most laps by far in yesterday's Pocono 400. Then, with five laps remaining in the 160-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup race, Keselowski suddenly backed off the pace between Turns 1 and 2, allowing Dale Earnhardt Jr. to lead. Keselowski was hoping to clear the paper off the grill of his red No. 2 Ford by drafting Earnhardt, then surge back in front. It didn't happen. Earnhardt kept his No. 88 Chevrolet ahead of Keselowski and gained his first Pocono Raceway victory in 29 starts.

FOR THOSE of us eagerly awaiting an influx of young racing talent in NASCAR to stimulate interest, it appears our wish is coming true. Thank you, Kyle Larson, Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott and others. Larson, 21, finished second in the California Sprint Cup race March 23 after winning the Nationwide Series race the day before. He finished fifth at Texas in Monday's rain-delayed Cup race. Dillon, 23, is 12th in points with an average finish of 15.2 in the season's first seven races.

FIVE RACES into the new NASCAR Sprint Cup season and, to use a popular term, here's what is trending: For openers, there are five different race winners: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch. That's good for the series. Last year, five different drivers also won the first five races: Jimmie Johnson, Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch. In the 10-year history of the Chase, there have not been six different winners beginning a season.

A NEW YEAR means fresh story lines for NASCAR. This racing series has more story lines than "Downton Abbey," except these drivers don't wear tuxedos to dinner. They probably wear firesuits decorated with sponsors' logos. Here are a few major themes: * Jimmie Johnson is seeking his record-tying seventh Sprint Cup series championships. After winning a record five consecutive titles from 2006 through '10, Johnson yielded the throne to Tony Stewart in 2011 and Brad Keselowski in 2012.

BRACE YOURSELVES, racin' fans, for another Jimmie Johnson reign. Johnson carries a substantial, 28-point lead over Matt Kenseth into the Sprint Cup season finale Sunday in Homestead, Fla. All Johnson has to do to gain his sixth title is finish 23rd or better. He should be able to do that while sipping an energy drink and driving with one hand on the steering wheel. Another championship is a nightmare for those in the Anybody But Jimmie Johnson Club. It's understandable why some fans dislike Johnson as a racer: He wins too often.

FOUR RACES into the Chase is enough time to get a sense of which drivers are title contenders and which are not. Put the 10th through 13th place drivers in the fuhgeddaboudit file: Joey Logano, Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman and Kasey Kahne. Longshots (sixth through ninth) are Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer. Which leaves the top five. Matt Kenseth's lead has been shaved from 14 points, after two races, to only three ahead of Jimmie Johnson. Johnson, the five-time Cup titlist, hasn't won the Chase the past 2 years.

WITH the turmoil of the Richmond race presumably in our rearview mirrors, it's time to focus on the 10th Chase that begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. This Chase features major turnover: Five drivers weren't in last year's Chase: Kyle and Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Ryan Newman. They replace champion Brad Keselowski, Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. Keselowski's missing the Chase will make many question whether he's a 1-year wonder as a champion.

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron signed an eight-year extension through the 2021-22 season. The contract worth $52 million begins after next season, the last of Bergeron's current three-year deal with Boston. The signing of their alternate captain on Friday comes two days after the Bruins signed goalie Tuukka Rask to an eight-year, $56 million deal. Rask had been a restricted free agent. Bergeron tied for the team lead with nine postseason goals. He played the last game of the Stanley Cup Finals with a broken rib and separated shoulder.
