The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks scored four times in the second period and coasted to a 5-0 AHL win over the Phantoms last night, ending Philadelphia's four-game winning streak. Phantoms goalie Antero Niittymaki, coming off back-to-back shutouts, had his scoreless streak end at 153 minutes, 45 seconds. His streak dated back to Feb. 12.

TIRED AT THE end of a lengthy shift, Anaheim's Matt Beleskey saw a familiar No. 8 out of the corner of his eye, flipped the puck in that general direction and hoped for the best. When it comes to Teemu Selanne, the best tends to happen. Selanne took Beleskey's feed and beat Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury with a nifty backhand midway through the third period to lift the surging Ducks over the host Penguins, 2-1, last night. "There's a reason he's got a jillion goals in this league," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said.

Although they managed a season-high 42 shots Thursday night, the Flyers continued to stumble at the Wells Fargo Center. They were frustrated by their anemic power play - and by Anaheim's backup goalie Curtis McElhinney. Oh, and by Ryan Getzlaf. Taking a crossing pass from Matt Beleskey, Getzlaf poked in a goal during a goalmouth scramble with 1 minute, 46 seconds left, snapping a 2-2 tie and sparking the Ducks to a 3-2 win. The Flyers have lost three straight - all at home, and all to teams that were playing the second game on back-to-back nights.

QUICK STORY: When we were 10 or so, we visited a neighbor kid. Many children were romping in the back yard, all young and carefree. We had been to that yard often, blissfully ignorant of the true cruelties of life. And then we met . . . the ducks. We knew nothing more of ducks than what we'd seen on TV. Donald, Huey, Dewey. You know them. Wouldn't hurt a fly. And then . . . the real ducks attacked. Quack. Quack. Bite. Quack. Quack. Bite. And they attacked only us. The other kids, hooligans one and all, stood and laughed as we tried to climb a clothesline pole.

SO THE BIG news in the second week of the BCS standings, or probably the only real noteworthy item, was that Oregon dropped for the second week despite a 43-21 win at 5-2 Arizona State that wasn't nearly as close as that score suggests. Guess a 52-14 win at West Virginia, which was coming off a 49-14 loss at Texas Tech, was more head-turning, because Kansas State moved past the Ducks, from No. 3 to 4. Defending national champion Alabama and Florida, not shockingly, continued to be first and second, respectively.

It was the kind of game only a coach could find exciting, and sure enough, Terry Murray loved it. "We emphasized the defensive part of the game," Murray said after the Flyers allowed the not-so-Mighty Ducks of Anaheim all of 12 shots on net in a 3-0 Flyers victory. It was the Flyers' third successive win - two of them coming against the Ducks - and it raised their record to 5-4, without team captain Eric Lindros. Lindros appears likely to miss at least a few more weeks with a right groin pull.

The tragic duck-boat accident near Penn's Landing should prompt officials to consider changes in the safety guidelines for these amphibious craft. Two people are feared dead and 35 were rescued after one of the popular tour boats was struck by a barge and capsized Wednesday in the Delaware River. The duck boat had developed engine trouble and was floating without power when the collision occurred. The owner of the tour boats, Ride the Ducks, on Thursday took the only sensible action by suspending operations in Philadelphia and at its five other locations nationwide.

When he ran for district attorney in 1985, Ronald D. Castille made a big deal of the fact that his Democratic opponent, Robert W. Williams Jr., refused to debate him and virtually hid from the voters because he was black. So as an incumbent, Mr. Castille is taking some deserved ribbing for his own reluctance to spend more prime time with Democratic challenger Walter M. Phillips Jr. Mr. Phillips wants more than one debate, but the district attorney says one is "plenty to air any issues we have.

The Coast Guard yesterday released recordings of radio communications from the fatal Duck-boat crash in Philadelphia. The recordings were taken from the emergency channel recorded by the Coast Guard. A Duck boat with 37 people aboard became disabled in the Delaware River on July 7 and was struck by an unmanned city-owned barge being pushed by a tug. The Duck boat capsized and sank, killing two Hungarian tourists. Shortly before the crash, an unidentified man can be heard yelling for a boat to watch out. A few minutes later, the tug boat Caribbean Sea is heard telling the Coast Guard, "we are the ones that, I guess, capsized the Duck boat.

The president of the United States lands with all the majesty of Air Force One, waiting to exit the front door and stride down the rolling staircase to the red-carpeted tarmac. Except that there is no rolling staircase. He is forced to exit - as one China expert put it rather undiplomatically - through "the ass" of the plane. This happened Sept. 3 at Hangzhou airport. Yes, in China. If the Chinese didn't invent diplomatic protocol, they surely are its most venerable and experienced practitioners.

The NFL draft is no time for irony, but if it were Howie Roseman used it to perfection when he took Joe Walker with the Eagles eighth and final pick, the 251st of 253 draft selections, on a middle linebacker - from Oregon. That was a fitting coda to the symphony of ascension Roseman orchestrated with the unseating of Chip Kelly and his return to a pinnacle that includes sitting at the head of the table on the league's most important three days of the year. So, sure, why not? Oregon.

WHAT THEY ARE - Duck Donuts are not doughnuts made for ducks, nor are they made of duck. Instead, they are made from a basic vanilla cake-doughnut batter by people, for people. And they got their name from the North Carolina beach town - Duck - where company founder Russ DiGilio opened his first Duck Donuts store in 2006. The latest Duck Donuts opened in June in Avalon, making it the first of the company's 82 locations to open at the Jersey Shore. The two other New Jersey locations are in Bridgewater, Somerset County, and Middletown, Monmouth County.

Once baby outgrows her initial bathing station and it's time for a transitional - and transportable - mini-tub, why not a duck? It's ideal for bath time inserted into a regular tub, but there's no reason the White Hot Inflatable Safety Duck Tub from Munchkin - designed for the 6- to 24-month-old set - can't go to the beach or other play area. Deflate and fold, and this all-weather fowl can go anywhere. The floor of the cushiony internal tub area has a non-skid, non-abrasive texture, the raised "tail" area of the vinyl duck makes a nice headrest for hair-washing, and the squeezable orange beak will grab your little one's attention.

After the morning skate Tuesday, Flyers captain Claude Giroux started to answer a question this way: "After we win tonight . . . " Bold words when you consider Tuesday night's opponent, Anaheim, has been one of the NHL's best teams since a horrendous October. The Ducks, perhaps using Giroux's words as motivation, continued their torrid pace as they whipped the Flyers, 4-1, and ruined the home team's 50th anniversary party. "We didn't bring our 'A' game," said right winger Wayne Simmonds after his undisciplined team was guilty of six hooking penalties.

The Flyers, coming off one-goal weekend losses to the Rangers and Washington, will try to rebound Tuesday against the rejuvenated Anaheim Ducks at the Wells Fargo Center. After a miserable 1-7-2 October, Anaheim has been one of the NHL's best teams. The Ducks were on a 24-11-5 run heading into Monday's game in Pittsburgh, the start of a grueling seven-game, 13-day trip that will encompass more than 7,300 miles. The Flyers, after playing three games in four days, had an off day Monday and will try to get their offense back on track against the Ducks.

I had come for the smoked mushroom tacos because, well, it had been a vegan kind of week. But then there was duck. And knowing the kind of talent chefs Michael Sultan and Carolyn Nguyen have displayed for the unconventional at their Taco Mondo food truck, it made sense to indulge that instinct in my first visit to Revolution Taco, the brick-and-mortar shop they just launched near Rittenhouse Square with fellow food trucker Alan Krawitz of...

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Flyers were hoping the holiday break didn't stop their momentum Sunday night at the Honda Center. It did. Playing their first game since Monday, the Flyers allowed two power-play goals for the first time since Nov. 12 and dropped a 4-2 decision to the Anaheim Ducks. Corey Perry snapped a 2-2 tie 58 seconds into the third period, going around Evgeny Medvedev and beating Steve Mason from a difficult angle for his second goal of the night. Mason said he should have stopped the game-winner by Perry, who put the shot between his legs.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was sidelined by an undisclosed upper-body injury Sunday in Anaheim, and Brandon Manning took his place in the Flyers' lineup. The injury is not believed to be severe, and Del Zotto is listed as day-to-day. Del Zotto, who has eight points and a minus-8 rating in 34 games, had been paired with Evgeny Medvedev lately. Manning had been a healthy scratch the previous two games. He entered the night with three points and a plus-2 rating in 26 games.

A forlorn urban reservoir that became a migratory oasis for birds, even as people were banned from its banks, will be reborn in a preservation project launched Tuesday by Mayor Nutter in Strawberry Mansion. The $17 million Discovery Center project is to open by early 2017 at the western basin of East Park Reservoir, an enormous lake that was once part of the Philadelphia water-supply system. The basin rises high above 33d Street at Oxford Street, and extends for blocks through the neighborhood where the saxophonist John Coltrane once lived.
