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.

Coach Ken Hitchcock signed a 3-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets yesterday, saying he welcomes the chance to turn the only NHL team not to make the playoffs into winners. "This is a challenge I want badly," said Hitchcock, whose new deal will keep him behind the bench through the 2011-12 season. "I want to be the coach that takes this team to the highest level. " Hitchcock, 56, has a career NHL record of 470-314-117 with the Flyers, Dallas and Columbus. His Stars won the Stanley Cup in 1999.

After playing arguably their worst game of the season in a 4-1 loss at Columbus on April 25, the Union put together their most impressive performance against the same team Wednesday night and continued to show signs that this disappointing season could be turning around. Goals by C.J. Sapong, Vincent Nogueira, and Sebastien Le Toux powered the Union to a 3-0 win over the Columbus Crew before 15,374 fans at PPL Park. The Union (4-8-3) are 3-1 in their last four games and look like a far different team from the one that floundered five weeks ago in Columbus.

SHEANON WILLIAMS took a pass from fellow defender Maurice Edu in his own half and raced up the right side of the PPL Park field. Williams turned on the boosters and danced by two defenders, getting all the way into the box to find Sebastien Le Toux with a quick crossing pass, and the Frenchman found the back of the net. It was Le Toux's second game in a row with a goal after not scoring in the team's first 13. It was the 58th minute. And the remaining 32-plus didn't matter. The Union had just scored its second goal in seven minutes to take a 3-0 lead over a Columbus Crew team that pounded the Union, 4-1, on April 25. The 3-0 score held final.

In a Major League Soccer season when little has gone right for the 1-5-3 Union, coach Jim Curtin pulled no punches this week when discussing the team's deficiencies. First and foremost, this is a team that does not challenge defenses enough and also makes too many errant passes. "Possession-wise we've been a disaster this year," Curtin said. "Confidence goes the longest way. " This is not a confident team. "When you have confident players, they want the ball in tight spots, and right now we would rather shy away from moving an extra yard or two to keep possession," Curtin said.

R.J. UMBERGER ran his fingers through his hair and sighed. After he had struggled through 67 games this season, coach Craig Berube's patience ran out. He was a healthy scratch last night for the first time this season. That it's been a tough year is an understatement, Umberger saying he's been bothered "more than anyone knows. " Umberger, 32, has nine goals and six assists for a career-worst 15 points. He collected more points than that (18) in a subpar, 48-game, lockout-shortened season in 2012-13.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - With their next four games against NHL lightweights Columbus and Buffalo, the Flyers have a chance to inch closer toward the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. Columbus (23-26-3), which is 14th in the 16-team Eastern Conference, will be the tougher opponent. The Flyers are 1-1-1 against the Blue Jackets this season, and 1-0 against the Sabres (16-36-3), who are last in the NHL with 35 points. "We can't worry about who we're playing or who other teams are playing," said captain Claude Giroux, whose team plays in Columbus on Friday and in Buffalo on Sunday.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Flyers' Steve Mason, R. J. Umberger, and Jake Voracek had different reactions to returning to Columbus, the city where their careers either started or blossomed. Mason, who on Tuesday played his first game in Columbus since the Flyers acquired him late in the 2011-12 season, said he was past being a member of the Blue Jackets. Voracek, with the Flyers since the start of the 2011-12 season, said his Columbus days were ancient history. Umberger, however, said it would be emotional when he skated onto the ice where he became a Columbus fixture - he is second in franchise history in goals (120)

COLUMBUS - Both times the Flyers played the Blue Jackets in Columbus last season, Ray Emery got the start in net for Philadelphia. The teams didn't meet at all during the locket-shortened 2012-13 campaign. So it wasn't until last night, 20 months after he was dealt to the orange and black, when Steve Mason made his first start at Nationwide Arena as an opponent. It was in Columbus where he began his NHL career, where he helped the franchise to its first playoff berth and won the Calder Trophy, and where he fell out of favor over the three seasons that followed.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Considering they managed little offensive-zone time and had just 19 shots in regulation, the Flyers should feel fortunate to get one point with a 3-2 overtime loss to Columbus Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.   "It's a satisfying point, but it's a lucky point, too," said Brayden Schenn, who tied the game with 55.5 seconds remaining in regulation by scoring his second goal of the night. "It was a tough game from our standpoint. We didn't generate a whole lot. We weren't great in our own end, and we were lucky to squeeze it into overtime.

COLUMBUS - Less than a minute on the game clock separated the Flyers from another loss devoid of consistent offensive production. Worse yet for the orange and black, if the score through 59 minutes had stood, the decisive goal would have belonged to former Flyer Scott Hartnell. But with 55.3 seconds left, the puck squirted through the pads of Sergei Bobrovsky. Brayden Schenn was rewarded his second goal of the evening. The Flyers ensured themselves that they would steal at least a point.
