The line of Mike Richards (two goals), Jeff Carter and Mark Cullen (three assists) accounted for all of the Flyers scoring in a 5-4 exhibition loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. Robert Esche started in goal and allowed three goals in the first two periods. Rookie Martin Houle took over in the third period, and gave up goals to Sidney Crosby and Colby Armstrong. Penguins rooke Evgeni Malkin was injured early in the second period after colliding with teammate John LeClair behind the Flyers' net. The Russian, who had an assist on a first-perid goal by Sergei Gonchar, catapulted over LeClair and lay on the ice for several minutes.

Shane Endicott's shorthanded goal with 3 minutes, 37 seconds remaining gave the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins a 3-2 win over the Phantoms last night in an AHL game at the Wachovia Spectrum. The Phantoms had rallied to tie the score after beginning the third period with a 2-0 deficit. Freddy Meyer and Ben Stafford scored 2:18 apart early in the period to spur the Phantoms' comeback. Penguins center Erik Christensen was sent off for tripping at 14:47, and the Phantoms pressured the Penguins, but Colby Armstrong and Ryan Whitney were able to clear the zone and find Endicott.

It was the second multi-goal game of the season for the rookie from Northeast Philadelphia.

The start was everything the Phantoms hoped for last night. The finish, however, was a nightmare. Kris Beech snapped a 4-4 tie with 4 minutes, 21 seconds left in the third period to lift the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to 5-4 victory over the Phantoms at the Wachovia Center. The Penguins trailed, 4-1, early in the second period but rallied to win Game 1 of the Calder Cup East Division finals. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is set for 7:05 p.m. tomorrow. "We had some major-league breakdowns, and there's no excuse for it," Phantoms coach John Stevens said.

The Phantoms rallied for three goals in the final period but fell to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 4-3, last night when Penguins center Shane Endicott scored with 2.4 seconds remaining in the AHL game. Matt Hussey's second goal of the night at 2 minutes, 32 seconds of the third period gave the Penguins a 3-0 lead before the Phantoms began their comeback in front of a crowd of 9,874 at the Wachovia Spectrum. "My team really showed me something by coming back and tying the game," Phantoms coach John Stevens said.

Peter Forsberg says he's always wanted to do something special for his godson, Nicklas Gradin. Something a little out of the ordinary. Forsberg thinks he has the answer. He's arranged a trip to Philadelphia for Nicklas' hockey team, Modo, which happens to be the same team he played for when he was younger. This season, the Modo squad, made up of players born in 1996, will come to Philadelphia, where they will be treated to a Flyers game and get to play against some teams in similar age groups in the Philadelphia area.

Marian Gaborik snapped a third-period tie with the first of his two goals and then sealed the win with an empty-netter as the visiting New York Rangers beat the New Jersey Devils , 4-1, on Tuesday night. Gaborik, who reached 600 NHL points with his first goal, also helped set up Artem Anisimov's second-period tally that tied the game 1-1. New York (20-9-4) won its second straight and broke the Devils' four-game winning streak in the first of six meetings between the Atlantic Division rivals.

If you think the Pittsburgh Penguins are staring at the injured list more than the standings, think again. They know Sidney Crosby won't be around for another month or so and that top goalie Marc-Andre Fleury isn't ready to return yet from a similar high ankle sprain. Throw in the absences of Colby Armstrong (flu) and Tyler Kennedy (mononucleosis) and a pair of one-goal deficits, and it didn't seem likely the visiting Penguins would have much of a chance to rally against the New Jersey Devils last night.

Johan Hedberg was so busy during the game, he deserved the break he got in the shootout. Hedberg made a career-best 46 saves and then was perfect in two shootout rounds to lift the visiting Atlanta Thrashers to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers last night. Captain Ilya Kovalchuk and Vyacheslav Kozlov scored on the Thrashers' only shootout shots against Henrik Lundqvist. Hedberg made a pad save on NHL-leading goal scorer Marian Gaborik in the first round, then watched the puck slide off the stick of Ales Kotalik before he could muster an attempt.

The Flyers continued a disturbing trend last night at Philips Arena - playing down to their competition. Defensive lapses proved to be their downfall in a 5-2 loss to lowly Atlanta, a team fighting for its playoff life in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers, looking listless and managing just 12 shots in the first two periods, finished their four-game trip 1-2-1. That's not exactly a charge toward the playoffs. The Thrashers have nine more losses than wins, yet they are 3-0 against the Flyers, whose resum? includes losses to bottom-feeders Edmonton and Toronto.

When you last saw the Flyers (remember them?), they were one of the NHL's hottest teams. They had won four straight, climbed into the Eastern Conference's sixth spot, and started to show why they were expected to be strong Stanley Cup contenders. Then came the Olympic break, which means when they resume play Tuesday in Tampa Bay, the Flyers will be playing for the first time in 17 days. The layoff has left a host of questions: It shouldn't. For one, the schedule is favorable - five of their next six games are against teams that have more losses than wins.

For the last four years, the Atlanta Thrashers have been to the Flyers what the Washington Generals are to the Harlem Globetrotters: A punching bag. That ended last night. The punching bag fought back. Atlanta ended a 14-game losing streak against the fading Flyers, getting outstanding goaltending from Johan Hedberg as it registered a hard-earned 1-0 victory in front of 16,018 at Philips Arena. It was Atlanta's first win over the Flyers since a 6-5 overtime triumph on Nov. 18, 2005.

Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists in his first game back from a foot injury and Rich Peverley scored once and set up two goals last night as visiting Atlanta beat the New York Rangers, 5-3. Atlanta got a big boost from Kovalchuk, who had missed six games and had been ruled out of this one as late as Wednesday. But the team captain got on the team flight, took part in yesterday morning's skate, and was fine following pregame warmups. He helped set up Peverley's power-play goal in the second period and then scored to put Atlanta back in front after the Rangers tied it a second time.

Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for his first shutout of the season and Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and an assist as the Atlanta Thrashers' dumped the New Jersey Devils 4-0 in Newark, N.J. last night. Colby Armstrong, Jim Slater and Marty Reasoner also scored for the Thrashers, who won their first shutout of the season. For Lehtonen, it was his 12th career shutout and first against the Devils. Kovalchuk, added yesterday to the Eastern Conference team for the NHL All-Star game, lived up to the billing with key contributions in Atlanta's three-goal second period.

Could the Flyers be facing a double dagger from the Pittsburgh Penguins? The Pens clinched the Atlantic Division crown on Wednesday with a 4-2 victory over the Flyers. Today, Pittsburgh could clinch the No. 1 overall playoff seed in the Eastern Conference with another victory over the Flyers. Given the nastiness shown on both sides of the puck this season, the latter figures to be a motivating factor for Michel Therrien's Pittsburgh club, which has played outstanding hockey in the second half of the season and gone 7-2-1 in its last 10 games.
