After getting hit in the face by a puck earlier this week, Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin might use a visor when he returns. "Yeah, I think so, I think I've used all my good breaks," Sundin said yesterday, meeting reporters for the first time since getting hit in the left eye seven minutes into Wednesday's season opener. "I've had some close calls with my eyes before. Definitely when I start playing I'm going to have to wear one for sure and hopefully I can continue it. That's my goal, for sure.

Blue Jackets defenseman Bryan Berard apologized to his team and the Columbus fans yesterday, saying he's "embarrassed" he's been suspended from international competition for 2 years after testing positive for a banned steroid. "In life, you learn from your mistakes and accepting it and just going forward," he said. "We'll learn from it . . . it won't happen again. " The test Berard, 28, failed wasn't part of the NHL's new testing program that began Sunday, so he will not be subject to league discipline.

The Florida Panthers failed to take advantage of 10 power play chances. The New York Islanders made the most of their final manpower advantage to gain a point. Bryan Berard scored a power play goal with 26 seconds remaining in regulation to give visiting New York a 2-2 tie with Florida last night. Berard, the Calder Trophy winner last season as the NHL's rookie of the year, scored with Florida's Robert Svehla off for tripping and Islanders goalie Eric Fichaud on the bench for an extra attacker.

This win seemed like the ones the Carolina Hurricanes enjoyed during their run to the Stanley Cup title two seasons ago. After missing the playoffs the year after winning the Cup, the Hurricanes have their sights set on a more successful season. Matt Cullen scored for the first time since returning to the Hurricanes, and six others added goals in Carolina's 7-1 rout of the Maple Leafs last night in Toronto. Cullen, traded back to Carolina during the summer after one season with the New York Rangers, scored a power-play goal that gave the Hurricanes a 3-1 lead in the second period.

Bryan Berard could be on his way back to the NHL, perhaps with a deal in place as early as this week. One of his potential landing spots is Boston. For now, though, Berard's agent emphasized that no one should get carried away about a scenario that only a month ago would have been categorized as sheer fantasy. "Nothing's been done so far - no deal's been made," said agent Tom Laidlaw, the former Rangers defenseman, noting that at least a dozen clubs have called to inquire about Berard in the last two weeks.

Bryan Berard, the 24-year-old defenseman who nearly lost his right eye in a game 1 1/2 years ago, signed an $11.75 million contract yesterday with the New York Rangers. Berard agreed to a one-year deal with three consecutive club-option years. He will make $2 million this season. Berard was accidentally struck in his right eye by a stick March 11, 2000, while he was playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The NHL mandates that a player's vision must be at least 20/400 in each eye. After he was injured, Berard's vision in his right eye was no better than 20/600, but he was given a special contact lens that has improved his eyesight enough for him to receive league approval.

The statutory rape charge against Utah Jazz guard DeShawn Stevenson was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor after a court hearing in which one alleged victim changed her story. Fresno County (Calif.) Superior Court Judge Alan Simpson ordered Stevenson and his friend DeShawn Anderson, both 20, to stand trial on the reduced charges after a 15-year-old girl took the stand yesterday and said she never had sex with Anderson. The 14-year-old girl with whom Stevenson allegedly had consensual sex didn't attend the hearing.

Bryan Berard, blind in one eye but hoping to return to hockey, does not plan to wear a visor if he makes it back to the NHL. "I don't like to wear a visor," said Berard, a red scar snaking below his right eye. The Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman, wearing sunglasses, appeared at a news conference yesterday in his hometown of Cranston, R.I., in his first public remarks since his March 11 injury. He was accidentally hit in the eye with a hockey stick blade by Ottawa's Marian Hossa.

The NHL issued a zero-tolerance policy against irresponsible use of the stick yesterday, suspending New Jersey Devils defenseman Scott Niedermayer for 10 games for hitting Florida's Peter Worrell over the helmet with his stick. The ruling, which will sideline Niedermayer through the Devils' first playoff game, comes a month after Boston defenseman Marty McSorley was suspended for the final 23 games of the regular season for hitting Vancouver's Donald Brashear on the side of the head with a two-handed swing.

It could happen today. Or next week. Or maybe the New York Islanders will string a few wins together, get their confidence back, and start playing well enough that head coach Rick Bowness will last the season. Right now, that third scenario doesn't look likely, and Bowness knows it. He probably will be fired sooner rather than later. The young Isles have plummeted through the standings in the past month or so, for reasons no one can adequately explain, and when players don't progress, coaches pay. General manager Mike Milbury put Bowness "on alert" Jan. 10, a silly, gratuitous gesture.

CHRIS PRONGER'S blood-curdling scream could be heard, loud and clear, throughout the Wells Fargo Center. The piercing yelp, when the stick of Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski connected with Pronger's right eyelid, was plain as day on the Maple Leafs' broadcast fed back to Canada. For that brief second, as the Flyers' captain skated right to the bench and fell over in the hallway on the way to the locker room, time stood still. Stomachs turned over in fans and players alike. Pronger, a 17-year veteran, doesn't often writhe on the ice in pain or exaggerate an injury.

Bryan Berard knows a thing or two about overcoming odds, so it should be no surprise that the 31-year-old defenseman is making a spirited bid to earn a roster spot with the Flyers. After a so-so performance in his first preseason game, Berard - who has recovered from a horrific injury that nearly blinded his right eye in 2000 - has "gotten better and better as we've gone along," Flyers coach John Stevens said. "And his play on the power play has been one of his strengths. " Berard, in camp on a tryout contract, has played in four games and contributed three assists.

Bryan Berard, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 NHL draft, gallantly battled back from a 2000 injury that nearly blinded his right eye. On Sept. 20, he will be among the defensemen competing for a job when the Flyers open training camp, general manager Paul Holmgren said yesterday. "He's been a good player in the league for years, and the fact that he's willing to come here on a tryout is good for us," Holmgren said. "It gives us another experienced guy. " An offensive-minded defenseman known for his work on the power play, Berard, now 31, missed a full season because he was inadvertently hit in the right eye by the stick of Ottawa's Marian Hossa in 2000.

Brian Elliott was ready for this day. He'd been preparing for it since he was 7 years old. Elliott won his NHL debut, stopping 27 shots last night to keep the visiting Ottawa Senators perfect with a 3-1 win over the struggling Atlanta Thrashers. Antoine Vermette scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period and the Senators made it 5-for-5 in the young season, just one win off the franchise record for most consecutive victories at the start of a season. After getting all the way to the Stanley Cup finals last season before losing to Anaheim, the Senators are clearly on a mission.

When Dick Pound, chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency, said in November that perhaps one-third of NHL players were taking performance-enhancing drugs and stimulants, the league and its players' association rejected his contention. Three months later, as the hockey competition at the Winter Olympic Games approaches next week, Pound could be feeling vindicated: Bryan Berard of the Columbus Blue Jackets has failed his Olympic drug test and been banned from international hockey for two years.
