The NHL suspended Flyers left wing Donald Brashear one game without pay for instigating an altercation with New York Rangers defenseman Darius Kasparaitis on Thursday night. Coach Ken Hitchcock was fined $10,000. After Kasparaitis drew the ire of the Flyers early in their eventual 6-1 setback, he was hunted down by Brashear and attacked with less than 2 minutes to go in the third period. Instead of dropping the gloves to fight, Kasparaitis elected to cover up, and Brashear received 29 minutes in penalties.

There's something about the Boston Bruins that brings out the best in Michal Grosek. Grosek scored two goals as host Buffalo defeated the Bruins last night, 5-1, to extend its unbeaten streak to 12 games. It marked left winger Grosek's third multiple-goal game of the season. Two of those games have come against the Bruins. "I always play well against Boston," said Grosek, who has 14 goals this season. "I don't know why I have five goals in three games against them. " Maybe part of it is the forecasting skills of right wing Matthew Barnaby.

It appears there was a method to Donald Brashear's years of bedlam after all. According to Yahoo Sports and other websites, the former Flyers goon joined the world of mixed martial arts, signing with Canadian-based fight outfit Ringside. Brashear, 39, who is playing semi-pro hockey in Quebec, has yet to file for his license to fight in the province. According to multiple reports, the delay could be from Brashear's current legal battle involving a postgame fight on March 25, for which he was charged with assault and suspended for five games.

Flyers coach Bill Barber likes to mix up his lines, making sure no one can say he is predictable. And he likes to find out who can play with whom. Sometimes there is another motive behind the line shuffling. In recent weeks, Barber has flip-flopped right wingers Mark Recchi and Justin Williams on the top two lines. He also has taken left winger John LeClair off Keith Primeau's line and put him on Jeremy Roenick's. Although Barber wants to find out whether these players are interchangeable, he also is trying to get Primeau, Recchi and LeClair out of slumps.

In the aftermath of their humiliating 6-1 loss to the Rangers on Thursday night at the Wachovia Center, coach Ken Hitchcock told the Flyers not to bother showing up yesterday for practice because there would be none. The more cynical among the booing crowd at the game might be thinking that makes it two straight off days for the Flyers, who go against the Islanders tonight in Uniondale, N.Y. The Flyers are in desperate need of a win after fumbling a chance to tie the Rangers for first place in the Atlantic Division with one of their poorest performances of the season.

Donald Brashear says he understands Todd Bertuzzi's intent when Bertuzzi attacked Colorado rookie Steve Moore and broke his neck Monday night in Vancouver. "It's a game of intimidation," the Flyers' winger said. Bertuzzi ambushed Moore from behind, striking him in the head with a gloved hand, then pile-driving him into the ice. Moore's head whiplashed violently off the ice, and he lay amid a puddle of blood before being carried off on a stretcher. Colorado won the game, 9-2. Bertuzzi was retaliating for Moore's questionable hit on Markus Naslund last month that caused the Canucks' captain to miss three games with a concussion.

Every time Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock looked back toward his own net, all he could see were giveaways, soft defensive play, and Lightning goals. While the disgust registered on his face, the final score was etched into the Flyers' minds after a humiliating 6-1 loss to the Bolts at the St. Pete Times Forum last night. Fredrik Modin scored a natural hat trick and the Lightning checked the living daylights out of the Flyers while handing them their worst defeat of the season.
