Va., won the Canada Cup handicap tournament with a 36-hole net score of 129 yesterday at the Pine Valley Golf Club in Clementon. Greenwood and Campbell were in second place after Saturday's opening round.

He had just been through perhaps the most emotionally draining experience of his life, a loss in the seventh game of the Stanley Cup finals to the Edmonton Oilers. For Flyers captain Dave Poulin, the season had been a 106-game odyssey, and his body and spirit hurt. Poulin craved a large tub of ice. What he got was the postgame interview room. And the question. Hey, Dave, what about the Canada Cup? "I kind of passed it off," Poulin said. "I mean, the last thing I was thinking about was the Canada Cup, especially after all we had been through.

You probably didn't see either of the first two games of the Canada Cup championship competition between the Soviet Union and Canada, unless you hopped a quick flight to Montreal for Game 1, or to Hamilton, Ontario, for Game 2. That's because not many cable services in the area have picked up the games. That's also a shame, because by all accounts, those first two games have been good examples of ice hockey at its highest level. Both games ended 6-5, the Soviets winning the first one in overtime on Friday night, and the Canadians winning on Sunday, in double overtime.

Team USA put an end to 15 years of second-class citizenship in the Canada Cup hockey tournament last night, as its impressive contingent of NHL stars hammered Team Finland, 7-3, to move into the finals. Entering the tournament, Team USA officials crowed that they had assembled the finest group of players the country had ever sent into a major international tournament. And last night's performance, capping as it did a strong run through the preliminary round, seemed proof that that was so. Led by Joe Mullen's two goals and some spectacular goaltending by Flourtown native Mike Richter, the United States swept into the finals with a full head of steam.

It is almost August, three short months after Edmonton outlasted the Flyers in a grueling seven-game Stanley Cup playoff finale, a little more than a month before training camps open for the new season. In other words, if you are a Flyer, it is a perfect time to play hockey for Team Canada in the Canada Cup. At least that is how Mike Keenan and Dave Poulin see it, two members of the Flyers family who have chucked a few weeks of vacation to participate in the six-nation competition.

George McElveen and George Hauptfuhrer scored a 9-under-par net of 33-28-61 to finish in a tie for first with Richard Bean and John Murray at the halfway mark of the 36-hole Canada Cup handicap better-ball-of-partners' tournament yesterday at the Pine Valley Golf Club. McElveen, of Charlotte, N.C., had magic going for him on three birdies scored with the help of recovery shots curved around and over trees and retrieved from bunkers, and a 70-foot putt on the 18th green. Hauptfuhrer, of Huntingdon Valley, aided the cause on five holes.

Team USA broke a nine-game winless streak against Finland with a 4-1 victory, and Canada and Czechoslovakia fought to a 4-4 tie in the opening round of the Canada Cup hockey tournament last night. Pat LaFontaine scored two goals, and John Vanbiesbrouck made 22 saves behind a strong defense to lead Team USA past Team Finland in Hartford, Conn. Team USA will play its second game in the round-robin portion of the tournament Monday night against Sweden in Hamilton, Ontario, while Finland will face Team Canada tomorrow night, also in Hamilton.

Mike Keenan walked into his office at the Copps Coliseum for the start of Team Canada practice and reached for his long-sleeved blue turtleneck T-shirt. Uh, make that his short-sleeved blue turtleneck T-shirt. Shortly before the Team Canada coach arrived in his office to start Saturday's practice, someone had taken a pair of scissors and raggedly cut the arms off Keenan's shirt around the elbows. But did the Flyers' head coach, known for a tough, disciplined style, do his "Mike Fright" impression and make his players skate enough laps to cover a distance from Hamilton to Vancouver?

BACK IN August, with hockey training camps and the buzz of the season still too far away to grasp, NHL Network re-aired the clinching game of the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. There was John LeClair, named to the all-tournament team, going up against a young Eric Lindros in his prime. The pre-high-definition footage seemed almost grainy compared to today's standards. But when the horn sounded in a stunned Molson Centre in Montreal, with the United States erasing a 2-0 deficit late in the third period against Canada, the cameras caught an unforgettable image.

THE BEAR has been poked. From the time North American journalists began arriving in Sochi last week, Russia's preparations to host 2,800 athletes and millions of visitors for 98 sporting events have been mocked around the globe. But almost universally, most participants at the Games have lauded the facilities and ease of access. Yet Russians are focused on just one way to measure the true success of the 2014 Winter Olympics: whether its men's hockey team can win gold on home soil in the sport it once dominated.

Michael Phelps won the 100-meter freestyle yesterday at the Canada Cup competition in Montreal to sweep both events he entered. His time of 48.65 seconds improved on the 48.87 he swam one week earlier, when he finished second to Brent Hayden of Canada in Santa Clara, Calif. The 14-time Olympic gold medalist swam a personal best of 50.48 in winning the 100 butterfly Saturday. "I'm sort of everywhere where I want to be, except in the 100 free," Phelps said. "I want to be faster in that.

The moment Team USA's chartered plane landed in Japan, head coach Ron Wilson started talking up the notion that the first three games were just for practice, that the first-ever Olympic hockey tournament contested by NHL players really starts with Wednesday's quarterfinals. Maybe Wilson knew his team wasn't ready to play. The Americans, proud 1996 World Cup champions, ended the first round in disarray, which was pretty much how they had started it. They were dismantled this afternoon (early this morning in Philadelphia)

It happened on Sept. 14, 1996. In Canada, it is a date that will live in infamy. In the final three minutes and 18 seconds of the third period, Team USA scored four times to claim the World Cup of Hockey, winning, 5-2, in the third game of the final series, at Montreal. Canada, which takes its national sport extremely seriously, went into mourning. "Woe, Canada," read the headline in the Montreal Gazette. In the United States, nobody took much notice. But Monday afternoon's rematch (late Sunday night in the United States)

The day before Team USA's astounding, historic victory over Canada in the third and deciding game of the World Cup of Hockey final series, American coach Ron Wilson noted that his team was at a disadvantage in the area of "tribal storytelling" - stirring tales of amazing comebacks and great victories. You only drag out Lake Placid so many times. And that wasn't even done with NHL-level players. Well, America now has some stories to tell, after unleashing a blizzard of four goals in the final 3:18 that ripped the mantle of world hockey dominance away from Canada, 5-2, Saturday night at the Molson Centre.

How worried is Canada that the United States might win the World Cup of Hockey? Team USA coach Ron Wilson feels he got a hint Sunday night in Kanata, Ontario, when the crowd cheered for Russia - yes, Russia, once Canada's most hated hockey rival, the Evil Empire, the Red Menace - and heatedly booed the Americans. Wilson's players didn't seem to mind, winning their semifinal match, 5-2, and setting up tonight's opener of the best-of-three final series between the USA and Canada at the CoreStates Center.

Had Sweden's Daniel Alfredsson, who won the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year last season with Ottawa, found the net with the shot that he banged off the left post, or the one he clanged off the crossbar, Canada would now be a full day and a half into a national nervous breakdown. Volvos and Saabs would be burning in the streets of Toronto. Outraged Manitobans would be flinging Swedish pancakes into the Red River. But Alfredsson failed both times, and when the puck went back up the CoreStates Center ice, Theo Fleury threaded a shot through a Brendan Shanahan screen, winning the World Cup of Hockey semifinal match for Canada, 3-2, with 12.5 seconds left in the second 20-minute overtime period.

He grew up in Flourtown, but goalie Mike Richter has never played to cheers in Philadelphia because of the New York Rangers uniform he wears. That should change tonight when Richter and his U.S. teammates host Canada in the World Cup of Hockey. The game is the first official event at the dazzling CoreStates Center, a $210 million arena. "It's always been a different feeling to come in here as a Ranger and hometown player in front of this crowd," Richter said. "But at this point, I think people will suspend their feelings because we're Team USA. "They might be cheering for Eric Lindros, but I know they'll be cheering for the Americans, and that's going be an awesome feeling for me if I'm out there.

Two decades have passed since a significant international hockey game was played in Philadelphia. On Jan. 11, 1976, the Flyers, two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, defeated the Soviet Red Army, 4-1, in the "Conflict on Ice" at the Spectrum. The Russians walked off the ice to protest the vicious checking of Fred Shero's Broad Street Bullies. On Saturday night, the biggest international game here since then will take place at the opening of the CoreStates Center when the United States hosts Canada in the World Cup of Hockey.
