NEW FIELD reporter Gregg Murphy won't be the only addition to the Phillies' broadcast experience this season on Comcast SportsNet. CSN, which will air 109 games, is ramping up its coverage by utilizing state-of-the-art video technology, which it calls "Ultra-Mo," to provide clearer slow-motion replays. "It is crystal clear," says Shawn Oleksiak, CSN's senior executive producer of live events. Oleksiak says that normal video is captured at 30 frames per second. Ultra-Mo uses a varied, or adjusted, frame rate, enabling more frames per second, which allows clarity on replays that previously was unavailable.

The buzzer rang Monday on Comcast Corp.'s costly bid to televise Astros baseball and Rockets basketball games in the Houston area. A partnership of DirecTV and AT&T Inc. took possession of CSN Houston's studios near the Toyota Center and laid off 75 of the 141 employees of the bankrupt, Comcast-controlled regional sports network. The legal and financial tussle over the Rockets and Astros games has been watched nationally as evidence of a limit to how much regional sports networks can charge pay-TV distributors.

WHO KEEPS SENDING Comcast SportsNet's Sarah Baicker dinosaur T-shirts? Baicker certainly doesn't know. For the past couple of years, the Flyers reporter has received T-shirts with dinosaurs printed on them from anonymous senders. In the past year, the arrival of T-shirts has ramped up. During her recent birthday week alone, she got two Ts. She estimates she's gotten about 10 since they started arriving in the mail without prompting. The first one had a pink brontosaurus emblazoned on the front, but, for the most part, she receives Tyrannosaurus rex Ts. "People have learned [T-rexes]

WHEN THE buzzer sounded Sunday night in Kansas City, four La Salle media members had a choice to make. They could either watch the Explorers' Sweet 16 game at home, or put in the effort and get themselves to Los Angeles. Effort won out. The group decided to take matters into its own hands after La Salle's 76-74 win in the Round of 32 against Ole Miss. "There was no doubt in my mind that we were going to Los Angeles," La Salle senior Dave Grzybowski said. "We just knew we couldn't do it alone.

NEWARK, N.J. - After dispatching the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 1, the Flyers have captured the city of Philadelphia. Or, at least that's what the ratings say. The NBC ratings for Game 1 against New Jersey on Sunday were up 121 percent from last year's Game 1 against Boston. But the numbers from Game 2 were truly staggering for hockey in Philadelphia. According to the overnight ratings, the Flyers' Game 2 loss on NBC Sports Network on Tuesday night nearly doubled the combined local viewership of both the Sixers' playoff win in Chicago and the Phillies' game in Atlanta.

PLAYERS TO WATCH FLYERS: Scott Hartnell: The Flyers' leading scorer through the regular season with 37 goals, has just two tallies in seven playoff games this spring. Hartnell's tireless work in the corners have helped produce Claude Giroux's 15-point run, but it's time for Hartnell to get back on the scoresheet. DEVILS: Ilya Kovalchuk: He was held without a shot in Game 1 for the first time since Nov. 23, 2011. Kovalchuk was not available to meet the media on Monday, as a team spokesman said he was getting "treatment," furthering injury speculation.
