The clock showed eight-tenths of a second left to play when Brent Fedyk shoved the puck past Tim Cheveldae. That's how close the Flyers came to losing last night. Trailing the Detroit Red Wings by a goal, the Flyers escaped with a 5-5 tie when Fedyk punched a loose puck in the crease past the startled Wings goaltender. The Flyers erupted in joy. The Wings were stunned. Somehow, the Flyers had flicked on the intensity at just the right moment. Playing with the desperation that comes from seeing another season slip away, the Flyers matched the mighty Wings goal for goal through the first 14 minutes at Richfield Coliseum.

Brent Fedyk's playoffs ended abruptly Friday night, with 9:26 left in the first period of the Flyers' series-clinching victory over the host New York Rangers. While his teammates celebrated gaining a berth in the Stanley Cup semifinals, Fedyk was undergoing tests in a New York hospital, tests that would reveal a crack or chip in his uppermost vertebra, putting him in a neck brace, and keeping him off the ice until training camp in September. "(Rangers forward Alexei) Kovalev hit my left skate," Fedyk said yesterday.

Brent Fedyk has played in 196 games as a Flyer. For about two-thirds of those games, Fedyk has been considered a valuable, two-way presence, a versatile winger who can play either side, score the odd goal, kill penalties and play strong overall defense. For the other third of Fedyk's Flyers tenure, he has been on the bubble - coaches have found him too streaky a scorer, not strong enough on the boards, not tough enough in general. Last night, in a 3-2 victory over visiting Toronto, Fedyk scored the third- period goal that got the Flyers even - the second night in a row he'd done that.

The opponent (Tampa Bay) was the same as the last time Brent Fedyk played. But everything else felt different. "When you're out for a month, nothing seems familiar out there," Flyers winger Fedyk said after contributing a goal and an assist to a 5-4 victory over the visiting Lightning last night. "The rink seems shorter, smaller and everything. The net seems smaller, too . . . The first half of the game, it seemed like the play was moving so much quicker than it actually was. You're thinking too much, is what you're doing.

The Flyers signed left winger Brent Fedyk to a new contract yesterday, the terms of which were not disclosed. Fedyk said after the season ended this month that he expected to sign for a little under the NHL average salary of about $500,000 per season. An occasional favorite of Flyers coach Terry Murray, Fedyk ended his season on May 26 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers when he was sandwiched between two players and sustained a fracture of the first cervical vertebra.

Flyers goalie Stephane Beauregard, one of the stars in Thursday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Quebec Nordiques, will make his third consecutive start tonight against the expansion Senators in Ottawa. Beauregard, pressed into continuous service because Dominic Roussel is out with a groin pull, came up with 23 saves Thursday night and lowered his goals- against average to 4.12. "It's a funny thing, being a goaltender," said Beauregard, who allowed nine goals in a 9-3 loss to the New York Islanders last Saturday.

Eric Lindros may miss his second straight game tonight when the slumping Flyers play the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. After just 20 minutes of practice, Lindros was treated yesterday for what Flyers spokesman Mark Piazza called back spasms. He had been ejected early in Saturday's 6-4 loss in St. Louis after cross-checking Nelson Emerson into the boards. Piazza said that Lindros' injury was not serious, and that he was expected to play in Saturday's game against the Blues at the Spectrum.

Trent Klatt was so excited about scoring his first goal of 1996, he fell down celebrating it. Klatt quickly regained his balance, in time to accept the hugs of teammates. "It's a great relief," Klatt said after a 5-3 victory over Washington, cradling his 18-month-old son, Trevor, who was trying to sleep. "It feels like a piano's off my back. " When Klatt expertly drilled a backhander past Washington goalie Jim Carey 4:36 into the third period, it seemed to be just one more boulder in an avalanche.

When Flyers general manager Russ Farwell began his luncheon remarks yesterday with, "I don't have a great deal of things to talk about right now," listeners at Downey's restaurant had to resist blurting, "So what's new?" Farwell's first year as GM last season was not exactly littered with deals as the Flyers were excluded from the playoff party for the second consecutive season. But when he added that the Flyers "are not prepared to go into training camp the way we are right now," the trade antennae started twitching.

The Flyers will attempt to find their missing offense tonight when they play the Ottawa Senators at the Spectrum. But they probably won't be doing it with forwards Viacheslav Butsayev, Pelle Eklund and Jim Cummins in the lineup. Coach Terry Simpson said yesterday that Butsayev would serve a one-game suspension tonight for having collected his second stick-related game misconduct penalty this season. Butsayev, a center, was ejected from Saturday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay for spearing.

IT WASN'T Mikael Renberg, or Karl Dykhuis or even Brent Fedyk. But it was a blast from the past. And that blast ended up being one of the biggest splashes on a Free Agency Friday Frenzy that saw nearly $300 million doled out to more than 60 players as the Flyers continued to revamp their drastically different roster. Yesterday, the Flyers signed former Hart Trophy winner Jaromir Jagr to a 1-year, $3.3 million deal, snatching the right winger out from under the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings, who were long thought to be the front-runners for his services.

Rod Brind'Amour thinks the subject is just plain silly. Why make a big deal of the fact Brind'Amour has played in 430 successive games, the NHL's longest current iron-man streak? You might as well congratulate him for breathing, or for not walking around barefoot in wintertime. He's supposed to play. He's getting paid $3.5 million this season to play. He enjoys playing. So he plays. "That's what they pay you for; they don't pay you to practice, they pay you to play," Brind'Amour pointed out the other day. "This, to me, isn't all that big a deal . . . You guys ask the same questions, everywhere I go. It's more a pain in the [butt]

Flyers defenseman Eric Desjardins, marooned in a desolate locker room with a few dozen reporters who wanted to go over every detail of the Flyers' season-opening victory, broke into a broad grin. He had just seen the man of the hour, new goalie John Vanbiesbrouck, padding resolutely toward the throng. "Oh, boy," Desjardins sighed. "A savior. " That certainly is the idea. We'll need several dozen more games to know for sure. The Beezer era opened with a shutout in Madison Square Garden, an intense if fumble-fingered 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers.

They have speed and an abundance of size to go with it. They can finesse or fight or grind the opposition down. They have the third-period grit they so sorely lacked a season ago. Yet the one tangible element that makes the Flyers a legitimate Stanley Cup contender was never more evident than it was over the weekend when they undressed the star-studded Pittsburgh Penguins - depth. The Flyers exposed the Penguins' lack of depth while humiliating them with their own. Playing without five regulars, including their top two centers, Eric Lindros and Dale Hawerchuk, the Flyers outscored the highest-scoring team in hockey by 11-3 with guys like Trent Klatt, John Druce and Pat Falloon, none of whom is a household name around the NHL. "Clarkie has put together an organization with trades, free agency and drafting that speaks very loudly of the job he's done," Flyers coach Terry Murray said of his boss, general manager Bob Clarke.

Less than five months ago, Trent Klatt was available in the NHL waiver draft. Nobody took him. The Flyers, who had the richest unprotected list in the league, lost forwards Rob DiMaio and Bob Corkum that day in late September. But not one NHL team thought it needed Klatt, a banging winger who had scored just three goals in 49 Flyers games last season after coming from Dallas in a trade for Brent Fedyk. This morning, Klatt has 17 goals, to go with his 17 assists. On the Flyers this season, only John LeClair (35)

The way Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock figures, the Flyers got the best of the Trent Klatt for Brent Fedyk trade. Even though Hitchcock doesn't remember much about Klatt as a player in the Dallas system, he does know that he is having the best year of his career and that Fedyk, mostly because of injuries, hasn't played at all for Dallas. "It's been a big disappointment for us," Hitchcock said of Fedyk. For the Flyers, Klatt has been the opposite. In his second season since arriving in the December 1995 trade, Klatt has earned a permanent spot among the Flyers regulars.

Flyers left winger Trent Klatt signed a two-year contract yesterday believed to be worth about $962,000. Acquired in a mid-December trade with Dallas for Brent Fedyk, Klatt saw a lot of time on the club's third line with center Joel Otto and left wing Shjon Podein last season. He finished with three goals and 11 points in 49 games as a Flyer during the regular season and had four goals and one assist in the playoffs. "Trent made it clear Philadelphia is where he wanted to play," said Jeff Solomon, the agent who negotiated the deal.

The bristly, reddish playoff beard suits Trent Klatt's face, gives it character and definition. Likewise, the playoffs have brought Klatt's game into focus. He was just another anonymous grinder through most of the regular season, scoring three goals in 49 Flyers games after coming from Dallas in a December trade for Brent Fedyk. Last night, Klatt scored his fourth goal in nine playoff games, surpassing his Flyers regular-season total. It was a huge one, too, the third-period tally that set the final score, just when the host Florida Panthers were pressing to tie. Dan Quinn passed from the right circle to Klatt in the slot, where he was posted up strong, Panthers forward Radek Dvorak clinging to his back.

There was a time during the 1995-96 season when Bob Clarke appeared to be trying to corner the market on hard-working, no-finesse forwards. The Flyers had never seemed exactly short in this area, so as the team struggled through a midseason slump, in which nobody seemed able to put the puck in the net, fans got a bit grumbly. Enough with the role players. How about adding some skill? Clarke, the Flyers' president and general manager, eventually did get around to a "skill" deal, nabbing Dale Hawerchuk from St. Louis for Craig MacTavish, an acquisition that fueled the Flyers' late run to the Eastern Conference regular-season championship.

The NHL playoffs agree with Trent Klatt. After taking 49 regular-season games to score three goals for the Flyers this season, Klatt picked up his third goal in just six playoff games in the first period last night against Tampa Bay at the ThunderDome. "It's important for everyone to step their game up," Klatt said after the Flyers had wrapped up their series with the Lightning with a 6-1 victory. "It's an urgent time of the season. I also was getting a few lucky bounces I wasn't getting in the regular season.
