Addition by subtraction. That's how you might interpret the Flyers' loss of centers Rob DiMaio and Bob Corkum in yesterday's NHL waiver draft. Their departure virtually guarantees that rookie right winger Dainius Zubrus will play with the club at some point this season, if not immediately. Barely 12 hours after Flyers coach Terry Murray said that the team's first-round pick in the NHL entry draft hadn't won a spot on the final roster, three things occurred: DiMaio was chosen by San Jose, then traded immediately to Boston for a 1997 fifth-round draft pick, while Corkum went to Phoenix, which was looking for another center because negotiations with Jeremy Roenick were at a standoff.

They are supposed to represent the future of the Flyers, but rookies Janne Niinimaa, Dainius Zubrus and Vinny Prospal got busy ahead of schedule. As the Flyers wind down the regular season - they have just six games left - the three rookies from Europe are looking back on a campaign in which they put their tomorrows on hold and made the most of today. "They're at the top of the list as far as I'm concerned," Flyers coach Terry Murray said. Murray was discussing the NHL's top rookies this season.

These are the hockey games in which the sage's stick is supposed to have the advantage. Those Flyers who have been to the Stanley Cup finals talk about this series with reverence. They have played long enough to respect the silver chalice and to have come close but never sipped from its lips. Then there are the youthfully ambitious, the rookies - Dainius Zubrus, 18, and Janne Niinimaa, 22. They open their eyes wide when they talk about playing in the finals. They imagine winning, remember their dreams from their too-recent childhood, quickly glance around the locker room at players much older, and try to metamorphose into grizzled veterans.

The Legion of Doom is being shelved - temporarily. Terry Murray's decision to move all four right wingers to new lines seems to have ignited the slumping Flyers in their last two games, both of which were victories. The biggest change involved moving Mikael Renberg off Eric Lindros' Doom line in favor of rookie Dainius Zubrus. "I'm pleased with the way Mikael has approached this," Murray said. "The puck is not going in for him. I figure a change may be good for Mikael.

After conferring yesterday with Brian Burke, the NHL's director of operations, the Flyers expected forward Dainius Zubrus to be suspended for two games for high-sticking Chicago's Chris Chelios on Tuesday night. Burke did not return phone calls seeking comment yesterday. His decision was expected today. Coach Roger Neilson said that Burke had not seen the tape of the incident but that he wanted to hear the Flyers' side of the story. Zubrus, who high-sticked Chelios in the face, was ejected with a match penalty.

While Ilya Kovalchuk refuses to take credit for the New Jersey Devils' surge since the all-star break, his teammates can see that the forward has elevated his game. Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists, and the Devils extended their winning streak to four games with a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. Anton Volchenkov, Dainius Zubrus, Zach Parise and David Clarkson also scored for the Devils, who remained perfect since the all-star break while equaling their season-best win streak.

Adam Oates considered his 1,000th career assist a family milestone. Dainius Zubrus scored 13 seconds into overtime on a play set up by Oates, leading the Washington Capitals to a 1-0 victory over the visiting Boston Bruins last night. "I talked to my mom and dad all in the last couple weeks, and for our family it really means a lot," Oates said. "They have been watching me for 35 years, and that's a lot of hockey games. It's very special for them and I owe it all to them. " Olaf Kolzig made 30 saves for his third shutout of the season and 24th of his career for the Capitals, who are unbeaten in their last four games.

For the second time in two weeks, Flyers rookie Dainius Zubrus was forced to hit the road yesterday to get a visa. Last week, he had to fly to Lithuania to get a U.S. worker's visa. Yesterday, Zubrus had to travel to the Canadian Consulate in Washington, D.C., to obtain a Canadian visitor's visa so he could enter Canada for tonight's Flyers game against Ottawa. Yesterday afternoon, coach Terry Murray and general manager Bob Clarke were informed by executive secretary Dianna Taylor that Zubrus' Canadian visa was invalid because it had been processed through Ukraine under his old Russian worker's visa and not through Lithuania under his current U.S. worker's visa.

NEWARK, N.J. — Dainius Zubrus is 15 years removed from his first trip to the Stanley Cup finals, though he still feels the pain and heartache from that sweep in Detroit. He can recite the Flyers' route to the finals that spring, knocking off Pittsburgh, Buffalo and the Rangers in succession on their way to the Red Wings. He still gushes about beating the Rangers in the Eastern Conference finals as a star-struck 18-year-old, just as his Devils did this year. "Mark Messier was there, Wayne Gretzky, Mike Richter, the list goes on and on," Zubrus said of that New York team the Flyers defeated in five games.

New Jersey Devils winger Dainius Zubrus won't be providing the Flyers any bulletin board material about the hit he took from Claude Giroux, who is suspended for tonight's Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semifinal at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers face elimination, trailing this best-of-seven series 3-1. Giroux was suspended after a high hit on Zubrus late during the second period of Game 4's 4-2 loss to the Devils. NHL vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan said in an online video explanation that Giroux "delivered an illegal check to the head.

It is story time for the Flyers. They have to tell themselves tales of gritty comebacks and overcoming long odds. They have to believe those stories. Only then can the Flyers hope to write a story of their own. If they do, it will go something like this: There was a team that played as if under a spell for the first four games of a best-of-seven series. The guys skated hard, but their legs just wouldn't move. They knew just what to do, but they couldn't do it. They fell behind three games to one and faced a do-or-die situation.

NEWARK, N.J. - It's hard to say which is worse, that Claude Giroux could be suspended for an elimination game or that the way the Flyers are playing, it barely seems to matter. You kept waiting for Giroux to make his mark on this second-round series, to take out his frustration on the New Jersey Devils. But an indefensible cheap shot from behind was not exactly what anyone had in mind. Giroux's sneak attack on Dainius Zubrus pretty much summed up where the Flyers are in this series.

NEWARK, N.J. - The joy that Danny Briere showed after scoring the game-winning goal to open this series is long gone. He's angry now. Angry at himself. Angry at his fellow teammates on the power-play units. The headlines will say that Alex Ponikarovsky scored in overtime to give the Devils a 4-3 victory and a 2-1 series lead over the Flyers. Briere will say the game was decided before Ponikarovsky's goal. The Flyers were given two power-play chances in overtime and (obviously)

Zach Parise notched a hat trick before a crunching hit from two players sent him to the locker room midway through the second period, and the New Jersey Devils snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Washington Capitals, 5-0, in Washington Friday night. Parise raised his total to a team-high 27 goals - including pairing with a somersaulting Dainius Zubrus for two that came 29 seconds apart - but left the game at 9 minutes, 40 seconds of the second period after being sandwiched between Washington forwards Matt Hendricks and Brooks Laich near the boards.
