The Rage couldn't say "good-bye, Columbus" fast enough after the defending ABL champions won again, this time by 74-68 at the Palestra last night. The Quest (31-7) finished the eight-game season series with the Rage with a seventh straight win. After losing Saturday in a 100-64 blowout in Columbus, the Rage (12-25) succumbed last night to a defensive shutdown in which they failed to hit a field goal in the last 6 minutes, 23 seconds. That occurred after rookie Beth Morgan's three-pointer had given the Rage a 65-61 lead.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded center Jeff Carter to the Los Angeles Kings for defenseman Jack Johnson and a first-round draft pick in either 2012 or 2013. Carter is expected to supply some offense for the goal-starved Kings. Acquired in a blockbuster deal with the Flyers last summer, Carter was expected to center the top line for Columbus with captain Rick Nash. But Carter missed 20 games with a broken foot and a separated shoulder. He had three goals in the Blue Jackets' last game and has 15 goals and 10 assists in 39 games.

The Union's 2-1 win on Wednesday at Columbus was not only a much-needed victory in their Major League Soccer playoff quest but an affirmation on this year's MLS SuperDraft. For the second time all season the Union's three first-round draft choices - No. 2 selection, defender Josh Yaro; No. 3, defender Keegan Rosenberry; and No. 6, midfielder/forward Fabian Herbers - were in the starting lineup. And all three played an integral part in the win. Herbers scored the first goal, and, after Columbus tied the score, Rosenberry got the game-winner.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rookies Keegan Rosenberry and Fabian Herbers scored to help the Union beat the Columbus Crew, 2-1, on Wednesday night. Rosenberry gave the Union (10-9-7) a 2-1 lead in the 74th minute. Tranquillo Barnetta one-timed a feed to Rosenberry, who trapped it with his right foot and blasted a left-footer through a pair of defenders and past goalkeeper Steve Clark. Herbers, making his fifth start of the season, opened the scoring in the 60th. Chris Pontius tapped it to Herbers who, from the top of the box, had a shot blocked by Hector Jimenez before side-netting the rebound.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Flyers' last 10 games will determine the magnitude of Tuesday's hard-to-believe loss in Columbus. If they overcome that 3-2 shootout defeat and earn a playoff berth, it will be mentioned as just another hurdle that the resilient team cleared. If it costs them a playoff spot, it will be remembered as the most devastating loss of the season, a meltdown for the ages.  With its goalie pulled, Columbus scored two goals in the final 64 seconds of regulation and won in the dreaded shootout.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - After serving a two-game suspension for an illegal hit, Flyers winger Chris VandeVelde remained sidelined Tuesday against Columbus. Part of a strong fourth line and penalty-killing unit, VandeVelde was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. Coach Dave Hakstol waited until after pregame warm-ups before deciding if VandeVelde would return to the lineup. Because several players were playing well, "we have tough decisions up and down the lineup, particularly in that spot," Hakstol said.
