Sean Avery surged past camera crews and reporters yesterday, choosing to save his comments this time for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman during a 3-hour disciplinary hearing. The Dallas forward was suspended indefinitely on Tuesday just hours after he used a crude expression to describe former girlfriends now dating others while speaking to reporters. Hockey's most notorious pest came to league headquarters in midtown Manhattan to give his version of the latest events that landed him in big trouble.

Craig Anderson is making Tomas Vokoun's starting job look tenuous. Anderson got the call over Vokoun for the second straight game and made Florida coach Peter DeBoer's decision pay off with a 37-save shutout in the Panthers' 4-0 victory over the host New York Rangers yesterday. "I thought he would go back to Vokie," Anderson said. "I want the ball, I want to be playing. I enjoy playing for these guys. I'll be ready whenever called upon. " Anderson was steady in his second shutout this season and sixth in the NHL. He stopped 43 shots in Friday's shootout loss to the Rangers, on the heels of a solid relief appearance for Vokoun in another shootout defeat against New Jersey on Wednesday.

Patrick Kane is still a teenager, yet the Chicago Blackhawks are already counting on him to spark their dormant offense for many years to come. His chance could come as early as next season. Kane, taken by the Blackhawks with the first pick of Friday's NHL draft, was introduced to Chicago yesterday. The 18-year-old player came to town with impressive scoring totals in junior hockey and the belief that he can put up similar numbers on the big stage. "He's going to be a great player for a long time in this organization," coach Denis Savard said of Kane, a Buffalo native, who threw out the first ball in last night's Cubs-Rockies game.

The chief executive of the New Jersey Devils wants the state to help build an arena in Newark to keep the Stanley Cup champions in the Garden State after their Meadowlands lease expires in 2007. The request yesterday by Lou Lamoriello came less than 24 hours after the owners of the New Jersey Nets announced they had reached an agreement to sell the NBA franchise and move it to Brooklyn. "I think it is a very positive thing that will result into something extremely positive," Lamoriello said of the Nets' proposed move, which still must be approved by the NBA. The Nets and Devils, co-tenants at the Continental Airlines Arena for more the two decades, had planned to move to Newark but the funding for a planned new arena fell through.

Despite having a patchwork defense in front of him, the Flyers' Steve Mason is quietly having a season that, with better goal support and a stronger October, would have him in the Vezina Trophy conversation as the league's best goalie. As it is, Mason went into Tuesday fourth in the NHL in save percentage (.924) among goalies who have played at least half of their team's games. Only Montreal's Carey Price (.933), Nashville's Pekka Rinne (.931), and Ottawa's Craig Anderson (.927)

OTTAWA - The optimist looks at last night's 5-4 shootout loss and commends the Flyers for battling back from a third-period deficit to grab a point in the standings. "We found a way to get a point," Luke Schenn said. "When you give up two goals in the third period, it's tough to bounce back from that. You've got to give guys credit for the point. " The pessimist looks at last night's shootout loss and says the Flyers never should have blown their 3-2 third-period lead to begin with - especially against a team that was just 2-12-2 this season when trailing entering the final frame.

Since his hiring last summer, Davidson, who rebuilt the St. Louis Blues, has become the man with the most power in the front office.

What do goalies Dominik Hasek, Tim Thomas and Craig Anderson have in common with the Flyers' Michael Leighton? All were late bloomers. Hasek, of course, became one of the NHL's elite netminders during a sensational 16-year career. He didn't become a starter until he was 28. Anderson, 28, never became a No. 1 goalie until this season with Colorado, and Boston's Thomas wasn't a full-time No. 1 goalie until he was 32. And, now, along comes Leighton, 28, who has played beyond expectations ever since the Flyers claimed him off reentry waivers from Carolina on Dec. 15. Pressed into action because of two different injuries to Ray Emery, Leighton is 12-3-1 with a 2.19 goals-against average and .925 save percentage with the Flyers.
