ASIDE FROM the chewing gum and timely timeouts, it is the indelible image of Peter Laviolette's tenure with the Flyers. April 1, 2012. Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh. Game No. 79. Laviolette, walking the tightrope that is the dasherboards between benches, climbed past the protective Plexiglas separating the Flyers and Penguins and shattered Max Talbot's stick in frustration in the direction of Penguins coach Dan Bylsma - on national television. Standing in the way was Penguins assistant coach Tony Granato.

PITTSBURGH - The Penguins had 25 games to establish an identity under interim coach Dan Bylsma. The Flyers have seemingly been honing theirs since 1967. "They've always tried to bring a physical element," Bylsma said yesterday. Bylsma and the Pens can expect more of the same in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Penguins have long been recognized for their collection of skilled players, led this season by centers Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby, who finished first and third, respectively, in the NHL scoring race.

Maybe everyone needs a day off now and then. The Pittsburgh Penguins' Evgeny Malkin did not participate in Saturday's team skate, prompting questions from the media to coach Dan Bylsma. "Just a maintenance day," Bylsma reassured reporters. "He's obviously been playing a lot of hockey. " On Sunday, Malkin scored a natural hat trick and added two assists in Pittsburgh's 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Malkin scored twice in a stretch of 1 minute, 49 seconds in the third period to put Pittsburgh ahead, 5-3, after the Penguins had squandered a 3-0 edge earlier in the period.

The Red Wings' chances to challenge Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin improved greatly the day before tonight's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals when their battered blue line got good news. Six-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom said he will play in the series opener after missing two games with a lower-body injury, and Detroit coach Mike Babcock declared another defenseman, Jonathan Ericsson, fit to play. Ericsson, though, wasn't 100 percent certain. The rookie can be cut some slack about playing just 3 days after his appendix was removed.

Welcome to the NHL, Dan Bylsma. His Penguins remain locked in an increasingly competitive Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Flyers, who staved off elimination with a 3-0 win last night at Mellon Arena. But Bylsma arrived as the man in charge hours before the puck dropped for Game 5 when he announced yesterday morning he was benching forward Petr Sykora. Bylsma hasn't had a more difficult decision since taking over as the Penguins' coach on an interim basis Feb. 15. That he was willing to make it suggests the "interim" tag need no longer apply.

THE PITTSBURGH Penguins have no plans to make a splashy trade before today's deadline, figuring the possible return of Sidney Crosby before the playoffs far outweighs anything they could get in a cluttered market. And considering the way they're playing, the Penguins look formidable even without their captain. Evgeni Malkin scored his 37th goal of the season, Brad Thiessen made 21 saves in his NHL debut and the Penguins beat the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-2, yesterday.

Michel Therrien, his team fading in the Eastern Conference playoff race less than a year after making the Stanley Cup finals, was fired as the Pittsburgh Penguins' coach last night and replaced by minor league coach Dan Bylsma. General manager Ray Shero decided to fire Therrien after a 6-2 loss in Toronto on Saturday in which the Penguins led 2-1 going into the third period. The Penguins are 27-25-5 after winning 47 games each of the last two seasons. "I didn't like the way, the direction the team was headed," Shero said on a conference call not long after giving Therrien the news.

RICK TOCCHET'S glimpse of hockey's best rivalry over the past few years has been no different than that of just about anyone in the general public. He offered commentary on the Flyers' games with the Penguins as an analyst for Comcast SportsNet, but was really stuck watching the blood baths from afar as an outsider. On the inside now as Penguins assistant coach to Mike Johnston, Tocchet can appreciate the view. "You could feel the hate just boarding the bus to come to the rink," Tocchet said.

PITTSBURGH - For the Pittsburgh Penguins, there is one player - more than any other - vital to their on-ice success against the Flyers. He is a 24-year-old Canadian with a sparkling resume, stacked with a Stanley Cup, multiple all-star appearances, and statistics that stack up with the best at his position in the NHL. He missed a significant chunk of this season with post-concussion symptoms. He returned for a bit, dazzled to pull the Penguins out of a funk, then was forced to sit out again later because of fogginess.

PITTSBURGH - It ended with Peter Laviolette and Penguins assistant coach Tony Granato face-to-face, standing on top of the boards with Laviolette holding a freshly broken stick he just smashed on the glass partition separating the two teams. On the ice in front of them, Wayne Simmonds was busy tangling with Derek Engelland, despite a black eye swollen to the size of a grapefruit, which forced him to wear a visor. Twenty feet away, Pavel Kubina was chucking knuckles with Matt Niskanen.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Peter Laviolette has his name engraved on the Stanley Cup. He is the second winningest American-born coach in NHL history. He was the head coach of the 2006 U.S. Olympic team in Turin, Italy. He is a two-time Olympian as a player. Laviolette served as the captain of Team USA in 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway, and skated alongside Brian Leetch in Calgary in 1988. Yet, if you ask Laviolette about one of his fondest hockey memories - through his 11-year player career and 389 wins as an NHL coach - he will tell you about leading a group of misfit Americans to a bronze medal at the 2004 World Championships.

Something bizarre happened to the Penguins Sunday, long before they turned into the Philadelphia Flyers - whom they claim to hate so much because of their dirty play - and shamelessly tried to beat the Flyers with cheap shots when it was obvious they couldn't beat them fair and square on the ice. Marc-Andre Fleury turned into a mediocre goaltender, even worse than the Flyers' Ilya Bryzgalov, hard as that is to believe. That isn't to say Fleury is solely responsible for the unimaginable 0-3 hole the Penguins find themselves in after losing Game 3 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, 8-4. The defense in front of him has been horrendous.
