Brian Propp, a longtime Flyer and five-time NHL all-star, is entering a new arena: state politics. Propp, a left winger in hockey, is running from the right for state assembly as a Republican, with lawyer Nancy Whatley Griffin as his running mate. They are seeking to turn back a Democratic incursion into Burlington County. Propp, 48, said watching the Trenton political game for the past five years made him want to grab his stick and run for state office. "I've seen what's been going on, especially over the last five years," he said.

Flyers defenseman Brad McCrimmon and winger Derrick Smith were among six players released by Team Canada yesterday in preparation for the upcoming Canada Cup. Also released were left wing Wendel Clark, of Toronto, defenseman Rob Ramage, of St. Louis, goaltender Patrick Roy, of Montreal, and forward Cam Neely, of Boston. The cuts were made by Flyers coach Mike Keenan, who is coaching the team, and his staff. Roy was upset by his dismissal and refused to discuss it. His departure leaves three remaining goalies - the Flyers' Ron Hextall, Edmonton's Grant Fuhr and the Islanders' Kelly Hrudey.

The wallet-sized photo is tucked into a lower corner of Brian Propp's bedroom mirror, where it has sat for a decade and a half. Every day, Propp gets out of bed, looks in the mirror, and sees the picture there, the smiling face of former Flyers teammate Pelle Lindbergh, who died after driving his Porsche 930 Turbo into the wall of Somerdale (N.J.) Elementary School at a very high speed, 15 years ago today. "It was really devastating," said Propp, now a Flyers radio announcer.

Brian Propp held a bottle of water Wednesday morning, standing on the back dock of the Bachelors Barge Club on Boathouse Row. His daughter Paige asked, "Are you hydrating?" "I had my coffee," replied the former Flyers star. Propp, 56, had skipped his usual early-morning skate because he was taking part in a little warm-up media event for this weekend's Dad Vail Regatta. Propp was about to compete on an ergometer, an indoor rowing machine, with former Eagles receiver Fred Barnett, former Sixers star World B. Free, and what turned out to be a ringer - Franklin, the Sixers mascot.

The doctor says Brian Propp didn't know the name of his roommate, and barely remembered that he was playing hockey when the lights went out rather abruptly in the second period. Other than that, though, everything's fine. You can't call it a happy ending, but it was a relief when the Flyers were able to announce after their 3-1 victory over Montreal that Propp - who was knocked out by a combination of an elbow thrown by the Canadiens' Chris Chelios, followed by Propp's head smacking the glass at the Forum, followed by his head smacking the ice - only suffered a concussion.

The trade antennae were twitching among reporters after Dave Brown was scratched for yesterday's Flyers-Capitals game. Brown, who has zero goals and three assists in 50 games, has been rumored packing for Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver. The Flyers usually like having Brown's toughness in the lineup against the Capitals. But instead, they promoted right winger Brian Dobbin from Hershey. Dobbin didn't play much early in the game, but later took a regular shift with Mike Bullard and Brian Propp.

Last call for Tim Kerr likely will go unanswered. Kerr, who near the end of the Montreal series was optimistic about his chances of playing sometime during the final, shook his head without comment when asked if he would try it tonight in Game 5. The Flyers have had little reason to be encouraged about their top goal scorer's left shoulder, which will need two separate rotator cuff repairs as soon as the playoffs are over. Every time he has tried to shoot in practice, his arm has gone dead on him again.

On the Flyers, Dave Poulin is a necessity. To Team Canada, he had become a luxury. He could have been valuable to Team Canada coach Mike Keenan in many of the same ways he is when Keenan is behind the Flyers' bench. But when the time came yesterday to declare the 23-man roster for the Canada Cup tournament, the people who made the decisions couldn't justify keeping Poulin over players who had had better camps and offered more talent to the cause. He and defenseman Scott Stevens, of Washington, were the final two cuts.

If Danny Briere is emotional about possibly playing his last home game in a Flyers uniform, he isn't showing it. Because of his high cap hit - $6.5 million per year - the Flyers' 35-year-old forward is expected to be bought out or traded after the season. If that happens, that would make Thursday's game against the New York Islanders his finale at the Wells Fargo Center as a member of the Flyers. "I'm not thinking about that. . . . Things change fast in the hockey world," the always-classy Briere said after Wednesday's practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

As the Chicago Blackhawks try to surpass a record unbeaten streak set by the 1979-80 Flyers, Bob Clarke wishes them no ill will. "Not at all," Clarke, the onetime Flyers star who is now the organization's senior vice president, said the other day. "The way I feel, I hope the young people do more than what the athletes in my generation did.

NICK COUSINS laughed. Surely, the Flyers' third-round pick in 2011 thought his new coach was joking when Sheldon Keefe challenged him in December to lead the OHL in scoring this season. It was Keefe's first day on the job as coach of the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, brought in to replace Mike Stapleton midway through the season. His first objective was to meet with Cousins, a player he inherited with plenty of potential but a poor reputation. "He was a guy I'd heard a lot about, from a lot of different people," Keefe said.

At 68, Joe Watson is the oldest player competing in the Winter Classic alumni game between the Flyers and New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The oldest doesn't necessarily mean he is the most out of shape. Watson organizes and plays in about 10 Flyers alumni games each year. "It makes me feel young," said Watson, a defenseman who played on the Flyers' only two Stanley Cup champions, in 1974 and 1975, "The way I feel about life is, if I feel good, who cares what the [age]

TORONTO - When Mark Howe finally joined his famous father in the Hockey Hall of Fame, he concluded his speech by pulling a No. 9 Detroit Red Wings jersey over his tuxedo. But he made it clear his heart will always lie elsewhere. "In 1982, Ed Snider, Keith Allen and Bob McCammon brought me to Philadelphia," Howe said after being inducted last night. "From the beginning, it was as if I was born to be a Flyer. And although I wanted to slash him a few times, I want to thank [then-coach]

Brad McCrimmon's death Wednesday in a plane crash that killed most members of his Russian professional hockey team sent shock waves throughout the Flyers organization. Perhaps no one felt the impact more than two of his former Flyers teammates, Mark Howe and Brian Propp. Both stayed close with McCrimmon throughout the years, and both called him and wished him well when he traveled to Russia last month to prepare for the season with the KHL team he was going to coach, Lokomotiv.
