Three coyotes snuck through a gate that a Los Angeles Zoo animal keeper failed to latch and killed more than a third of the zoo's flamingo population. At least 48 of the 86 Chilean and American greater flamingos kept in the zoo's exhibit near the main entrance were killed in the attack early yesterday. Five birds were missing and feared dead. Fifty 50 flamingos housed in other exhibits were not harmed. Officials said the animal keeper, who was new to his assignment, thought another worker had fastened it shut.

Scratch those visions of Rick Tocchet wearing a Flyers uniform next season. The Phoenix Coyotes yesterday signed the free-agent right wing to a three-year contract. "This guy has been a captain, this guy has won the Stanley Cup," Coyotes general manager Bobby Smith said. "He's a big-time player, no question about it. I've never been his teammate, but from what I hear he's the type of guy who admonishes players for not putting out in practice and admonishes coaches for not being prepared.

The Phoenix Coyotes yesterday fired general manager John Paddock and consolidated his duties with those of the team's top officer for player and hockey decisions. Bobby Smith, a 15-year NHL star hired May 21 as executive vice president for hockey operations, pulled the trigger on Paddock and will be responsible for the Coyotes' on-ice product. "We had to come to one structure," Smith said late yesterday from the team hotel in Ottawa, where the Coyotes play tonight. "What we had with two bosses did not lead to good management," Smith continued.

The Phoenix Coyotes, who struggled through their first season in Arizona, fired coach Don Hay and assistant Paul MacLean yesterday. Only assistant coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov was retained and offered another job in the organization. The moves came one week after Phoenix was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Anaheim, which won Game 6 in overtime and Game 7 by a shutout. The Coyotes were 38-37-7 during the regular season. "This was my decision," Coyotes general manager Bobby Smith said.

The lonely, mournful sound of a coyote howling at the stars has long been a staple of movies and literature about the American West. But to an increasing number of campers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, it has become a familiar refrain as the animal has expanded its range in recent decades throughout much of the northeastern United States. Wildlife biologists say that the eastern coyote - a heavier, bushier-coated version of the coyote of Western lore - has slowly moved into woodland habitats throughout much of the Northeast, filling a niche once held by wolves and bobcats.

The Phoenix Coyotes took a page from the visiting New Jersey Devils to beat them at their own game. The Coyotes killed six of seven power plays and rode Greg Adams's offense to a 3-2 victory over the NHL's best-known defensive team last night. Adams doubled his season scoring in one game with two goals and one assist as the Coyotes kept three league-best streaks alive. "I finally started getting some breaks, I guess," Adams said. "I'd been fighting it a little bit, squeezing the stick a little too hard at times, but I'm getting some breaks.

Another victory for the Dallas Stars in Phoenix, and another third-period collapse for the Coyotes. Aaron Gavey and Jamie Langenbrunner had a goal and an assist each as Dallas scored four goals in a 10-minute span of the third period last night to beat shorthanded Phoenix 4-1. "We were hunkered down so hard defensively that we weren't creating any offense," Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Once we started to create, we started to have fun with the game again. " With the come-from-behind victory, the Stars lengthened their Pacific Division lead to seven points over the second-place Coyotes, who were without four of their top players, including leading scorer Jeremy Roenick.

Mike Gambardello, a construction worker from Pennsauken, has been hunting for 17 of his 25 years. He recalls clearly and with pride taking down his first deer, a four-point buck, in the Pine Barrens at age 15. His father was there to see it. "It's the biggest high you can ever get in your life," he said. But in the last several years, Gambardello has become increasingly aware of other hunters in the woods: Coyotes. "Eight years ago, it was very, very rare," he said. "Now walk down the road, and you see more coyote tracks than deer tracks.

The Phoenix Coyotes traded veteran right wing Claude Lemieux to the Dallas Stars yesterday for left wing Scott Pellerin and a conditional pick in the 2004 draft. Lemieux, 37, had just six goals and eight assists in 36 games this season but missed nine games with a fractured foot. Lemieux signed with the Coyotes as a free agent in December 2000 after stops in Montreal, New Jersey and Colorado - playing on four Stanley Cup championship teams along the way. "Claude adds experience, depth and versatility to our forward group," Dallas general manager Doug Armstrong said.

After a hot start, the New Jersey Devils have cooled off quickly. Phoenix's Keith Tkachuk extended the visiting Devils' recent woes by completing his third career hat trick with a goal at 4 minutes, 8 seconds of overtime last night as the Coyotes beat New Jersey, 4-3. The Devils are winless in their last four games (0-3-1) and 12-9-1 for the season, tied with the Flyers and Capitals, all with 25 points, for second place in the Atlantic Division. Chad Kilger added a goal and former Flyer Brad McCrimmon recorded his 400th career point for Phoenix, which won for the second time in its last 11 games (2-6-3)

An extra-inning rematch of last year's Public League softball final led to a clash at the plate in the top of the eighth inning during Franklin Towne Charter's 10-8 win against Philadelphia Academy Charter on Wednesday at La Salle University, according to Franklin Towne Charter coach Jennifer Daley. A scuffle between several girls led to the ejection of multiple players, including Coyotes starting pitcher Michelle Slaughter. Second-seeded Philadelphia Academy Charter rallied from an 8-5 deficit in the bottom of the eighth to tie the score at 8. Skyler Petroski, filling in on the mound for Franklin Towne Charter, went 4 for 5 including a double in the top of the ninth.

STAFF WRITER Flyers fans can exhale. Claude Giroux, the team's captain and leading scorer, was not seriously injured Saturday in a 2-1 loss in Arizona. Giroux is "fine," general manager Ron Hextall said Sunday, meaning he will play in Monday's game against Winnipeg at the Wells Fargo Center. After Saturday's loss, Giroux said he felt "pretty good" and was not having ill effects from hitting his head late in the game. The Flyers can recover from the defeat. They probably can't make the playoffs if Giroux is sidelined.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - With a chance to move two points ahead in the wildcard race, the Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision to Arizona at the Gila River Arena on Saturday night. They also lost their captain, Claude Giroux, to an injury late in the game. Mike Smith made 34 saves to lead Arizona, which was aided by a controversial goal that just beat the buzzer at the end of the second period. Smith was the difference as the Flyers outshot the Coyotes, 35-17. With their goalie pulled and the Flyers having a six-on-four advantage, Sean Couturier's goal cut the deficit to 2-1 with 40 seconds left.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Even though his left knee took a beating from a few collisions Thursday in a 4-2 comeback win in Colorado, Flyers goalie Steve Mason says he is healthy and that he wants to play as much as possible. "He's 100 percent fine," coach Dave Hakstol said Friday after an optional practice at the Gila River Arena. That's one of the many reasons the locked-in Mason is expected to get the call, again, when the Flyers play in Arizona on Saturday night, the latest in a long list of critical games during their playoff push.

If the Flyers have a chance to make a playoff run, the return of Claude Giroux may have come just in time. After missing three consecutive games with an "upper-body injury," believed to be a concussion, Giroux returned Saturday afternoon as the Flyers beat the Arizona Coyotes, 4-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. With the victory, the Flyers (28-22-11) are one spot, and three points, out of a playoff berth. "It's fun [to be back]," Giroux said. "When you don't do anything for a week it gets pretty long, but to be back on the ice and battle with your teammates to get a win - there's nothing better than that.

Philadelphia is home to some great rivalries. The Big Five schools. Pat's and Geno's. And, of course, the Franklin Towne Charter and Central girls' soccer teams. For the better part of a decade, the two programs have met in the Public League Class AAA final. Franklin Towne won the rivalry's latest chapter Monday, when Caitlin Hammerstein knocked in Gwyneth Welsh's corner kick to complete a comeback and give the Coyotes a 2-1 win at Northeast. It was the fifth straight title for the Coyotes, who have not been defeated in their last 63 Public League contests.

Sometimes even superheroes need pep talks. That's why Franklin Towne Charter sophomore catcher Jason Santiago walked out to the mound in the seventh inning of the Public League championship game Tuesday night at Campbell's Field. His senior ace was one strike away from making history, and Santiago had a question for him. "I asked him, 'How do you want to be remembered?' " Santiago recalled. Steve Callahan didn't need to hear much else. With a man on first and the Coyotes clinging to a 9-7 lead, Callahan's next pitch got Giovanni Ortega to line out, and the Coyotes became the first charter school to win the Public League title.

Without any full practices since he injured his right knee on Jan. 10, goalie Steve Mason relieved shaky Ray Emery and keyed the Flyers' 4-3 shootout win over lowly Arizona on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Mason stopped 22 of 23 shots and Wayne Simmonds won the shootout after a pretty deke on goalie Mike Smith as the Flyers won their second straight shootout and handed Arizona its seventh consecutive defeat. "He's been working hard to get back, and he was the best player for us on the ice," winger Jake Voracek said after the Flyers overcame an early 2-0 deficit.

When the Flyers resume action Tuesday against Arizona at the Wells Fargo Center, they will try to avoid the same letdown that followed their last lengthy break. The Flyers are 12 points out of the Eastern Conference's last playoff spot with 34 games left, and they have little margin for error if they hope to play in the postseason. "We've got to bear down, see what's at stake, and make a strong push here," said defenseman Andrew MacDonald, who got married in the Bahamas during the all-star break.

THE PHONE BUZZED, lit up with a 610 number - not exactly the area code you'd expect of the majority owner of the Arizona Coyotes. Then again, few things about the Coyotes or their ownership observes hockey tradition. Meet Andy Barroway: the 49-year-old hedge-fund manager and lifelong Philadelphian who is now a member of one of the most elite clubs on the planet. He is not a hockey purist. He didn't grow up playing the game. He has no connection to Arizona. When he visits the Valley of the Sun, he stays in a hotel, because he has not yet had a chance to scout out a secondary residence.
