Will center Danny Briere's spot in the Flyers' lineup be taken by Brad Richards? The Flyers plan to buy out Briere, who has a $6.5 million salary-cap hit and two years remaining on his deal. A club source said the Flyers would "absolutely" be interested in Richards if the New York Rangers use a buyout to get his annual $6.67 million cap hit off the books. Richards' contract runs through 2019-20. But he would become an unrestricted free agent, able to sign a new deal, if the Rangers buy him out. Briere, one of the NHL's greatest playoff performers, has been slowed by injuries the last two seasons.

Brad Richards finished what Vincent Lecavalier started and the Tampa Bay Lightning swept its way to the conference finals for the first time. Richards scored his second straight game-winning goal in the second period and the Lightning beat the host Montreal Canadiens, 3-1, last night. Tampa Bay will play the winner of the Flyers-Toronto series in the conference finals. The Lightning never had advanced past the second round in its first 11 seasons. Fredrik Modin scored into an empty net with 55.3 seconds remaining for the Lightning, who have won seven straight playoff games since losing Game 2 to the Islanders in the first round.

Marc Staal scored a power-play goal 1 minute, 35 seconds into overtime after Brad Richards tied it in the dying seconds of regulation to lift the host New York Rangers to a stunning 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night. With goalie Henrik Lundqvist pulled for an extra attacker, Washington's Joel Ward took a four-minute penalty for high-sticking Carl Hagelin with 21.3 seconds left in the third period. Richards tied it on the first half of the power play with just 7.6 seconds to go, and Staal won it with a drive that appeared to deflect off a Washington player before beating goalie Braden Holtby.

Brad Richards scored the go-ahead goal and Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists as the top-seeded New York Rangers staved off elimination with a 3-2 victory against Senators on Monday night in Ottawa. The series heads back to New York Thursday night for the first Game 7 in any sport at Madison Square Garden in 17 years. Not even the return of Daniel Alfredsson, who missed three games with a concussion, in front of the fired-up home crowd at Scotiabank Place could help the eighth-seeded Senators complete the upset.

Matt Cullen scored the only goal in a shoot-out and the Carolina Hurricanes tied Ottawa atop the Eastern Conference with a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning last night. Martin St. Louis, who has yet to put the puck in the net in the NHL's new tiebreaker, hit the post with his attempt in the third and final round to fall to 0 for 3. The Lightning missed a chance to extend their lead even further over Atlanta for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, but did stretch it to three points.

Hockey is back. Now, before you think we're talking about the start of the NHL season, stop dreaming. Friday was the 62d day of the lockout, and there is no end in sight. But a benefit hockey game featuring several NHL players will be played at 7 p.m. next Saturday at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall, with proceeds aiding those affected by Sandy. The game, billed as Operation Hat Trick because it aids three organizations, will feature all-stars Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen of the Flyers and Brad Richards of the New York Rangers.

The Flyers' inability to stop the Rangers line of Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, and Rick Nash has been a story line throughout their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series. It definitely continued during the 4-1 loss to New York on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Rangers have regained home-ice advantage and take a two-games-to-one lead into Game 4 Friday in Philadelphia. The trio has been difficult for the Flyers to contain, at even-strength and on the power play. Stepan scored the first goal Tuesday, less than four minutes into the game, though it came on a gift from goalie Ray Emery.

NEW YORK - On the day before Vinny Lecavalier began his first playoff series with the Flyers, someone reminded him of an anniversary. It had been 10 years, Lecavalier was told, since he, Brad Richards, and Martin St. Louis won the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Those three were a sight to see back then. Lecavalier scored nine goals in those playoffs. Richards piled up 26 points in winning the Conn Smythe Trophy. St. Louis won the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer and the Hart Trophy as its MVP and added 24 points in 23 postseason games.

NEW YORK - For the Flyers, the magnitude of the games has changed, but not the results at Madison Square Garden. It continues to be their Garden of Evil. They managed just 15 shots and dropped their ninth straight at the World's Most Famous Arena, opening the playoffs with a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Brad Richards and Derek Stepan scored power-play goals 47 seconds apart in the third period, snapping a 1-1 tie and keying the Rangers' hard-earned win. The Rangers got a four-minute power play because of a double minor against rookie winger Jason Akeson, who played just one regular-season game and was making his NHL playoff debut.
