Henrik Tallinder knew his goal was important. Little did the Buffalo defenseman realize it would be the first of a seven-goal outburst that sparked the Sabres to an 8-3 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Kings last night. "After that goal we just kept on jumping, we kept on scoring," Tallinder said. "You could feel it just turning around. " Maxim Afinogenov scored twice while Ales Kotalik and Daniel Briere had a goal an assist each as the Sabres overcame a 3-1 deficit by scoring seven times in the final 24 minutes.

Martin Brodeur is closing in on another record. In his first appearance since breaking the NHL career victory record, Brodeur made 35 saves in the New Jersey Devils' 4-0 win last night over the visiting Minnesota Wild for his 101st career shutout, just two behind Terry Sawchuk's mark. "It's a lot of shutouts," Brodeur said. "That record is proof of commitment by an organization to play well defensively. You can't do it by yourself. " Patrik Elias, who became the Devils' all-time leading scorer in the same game in which Brodeur set the wins record, scored twice, giving him 30 goals for the season, and Brian Gionta and Johnny Oduya also scored as the Devils extended their home winning streak to 11 games.

BEDFORD, Mass. - The Boston Bruins thought they excised the specter of last season's postseason collapse when they finished off the Flyers in the Eastern Conference semifinals this year. Yet here they are again, one round later, trying to turn back another comeback. The Bruins will play the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the conference finals on Friday night, with the winner earning a chance to play the Vancouver Canucks for the Stanley Cup. But Boston could have avoided a winner-take-all predicament if it merely had protected a three-goal lead in Game 4; scored more than one power-play goal a week in the playoffs; or kept Tampa Bay from scoring, as often as not, in the first 90 seconds of the game.

Sean Avery's edge, dry sense of humor and even his missing scoring touch came rushing back at once. The timing was perfect, too, because he unleashed it all on the Dallas Stars - the team that dumped him last season. Avery exacted his revenge by scoring a goal and setting up three others in the Rangers' 5-2 victory last night in New York. The four points matched Avery's career high. Avery's stay with the Stars lasted only 23 games into a 4-year, $15.5 million contract.

Someone forgot to tell the New York Rangers that the New York Islanders were favored to win. Theo Fleury, Brian Leetch and Sandy McCarthy scored in a 65-second span in the first period as the visiting Rangers ended the Islanders' Eastern Conference unbeaten streak with a 6-2 victory last night. "Underdogs? Really?" Fleury wondered. "There are a lot of great players in our room. Great old players. Smart old players. "I think our experience was a real benefit to us . . . I think we were the team that was less nervous.

Dallas' Mike Modano is in select company. He became the fourth American-born player to reach 400 goals as the Stars beat the visiting Atlanta Thrashers, 2-1, last night. Modano scored his 18th of the season in the second period. He put in a rebound of Brad Lukowich's shot from the point to tie the score at 1. Joe Nieuwendyk's power-play goal in the third period was the game-winner. Joe Mullen, Pat LaFontaine and the Flyers' Jeremy Roenick are the other American-born players with 400 goals.

With time fleeting in the final frame, Matt Carle rounded the net to set up one last push for points. He just forgot one thing: the puck. And as the puck slipped off his stick, handing Tampa Bay's T.J. Wyman a gift in front of an empty net, so too did the Flyers' chances to catch the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference. For the Flyers, it didn't matter that Scott Hartnell scored with 1 minute, 13 seconds to play - just a few seconds after Carle's slipup.

TAMPA, Fla. - Ilya Bryzgalov was so angry that he was talking to himself. Sitting in his stall with his skates on inside the Flyers' locker room at the St. Pete Times Forum, Bryzgalov was trying to come up with answers for his latest ebb in a season full of ups and downs. This time, it was after perhaps his worst performance as a Flyer, when he allowed four goals on the first 10 shots he saw, en route to a 5-1 hurtin' put on by the Lightning. He didn't know quite how to describe his performance.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger said Thursday that the Tampa Bay Lightning are pushing hockey "into the stone ages. " No word on if he thinks Fred Flintstone should be the Lightning's coach. The reason for Pronger's anger: The first period of the Flyers-Tampa Bay matchup Wednesday was like watching a Princeton-Penn Ivy League basketball game before the shot clock was introduced. The Flyers used the NHL's version of "stall ball" or "keep-away.

TAMPA, Fla. - It began with Braydon Coburn standing just above the faceoff circle in the Flyers' zone, the puck just inches behind his stick, with no real intention to move it up the ice. Peter Laviolette's on-ice chess match with Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher quickly evolved into Chris Pronger gently skating circles in his own zone, with the disciplined Lightning waiting to pounce in their neutral-zone trap. It was jarring, in such a fast-paced sport, to see two teams standing - and not skating - for minutes on end, with the clock ticking, patiently daring the other to make a move.

For a while, it seemed that New York Rangers coach John Tortorella's line-juggling with his two biggest stars would produce his team's first win at refurbished Madison Square Garden. Then in a span of less than eight minutes, nothing worked for the Rangers. First the momentum was gone, then the lead, and then a shot at an important second standings point. Jason Spezza scored twice, Milan Michalek capped the Ottawa Senators' three-goal comeback in the third period by netting the only goal in the shootout, and the Senators beat the Rangers, 5-4, on Saturday to stretch their winning streak to five.
