Martin Brodeur stopped 24 shots for his 100th postseason win, and a three-goal first period was enough to help the visiting New Jersey Devils spoil the Florida Panthers' long-awaited return to the Stanley Cup playoffs in a 3-2 victory Friday night. Brodeur also picked up an assist for his 10th postseason point, and became the second goalie in NHL history to reach triple figures in playoff wins. Only Patrick Roy has more, with 151.   Coyotes howl The everyone-chips-in approach helped the Phoenix Coyotes win their first division crown and, fittingly, led to a victory in the first game of the playoffs as well.

Gord Murphy, who began his NHL career as a Flyers defenseman, is returning to the team as an assistant coach. John Paddock will not return as an assistant next season, general manager Ron Hextall said. Murphy, 47, has been an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers and the Columbus Blue Jackets. He played for the Flyers from 1988 to '92, when he was sent to Boston in a multiplayer trade. He also played with Atlanta and Florida in a career that lasted 14 seasons. "I really look forward to working with and mentoring the defensemen every day by having them continue to improve and get the Flyers to where we all want to be," said Murphy, who had 85 goals and 238 assists in 862 NHL games.

Stars lose, Blackhawks slip into final spot Antti Miettinen's goal early in the third period against his former team gave host Minnesota the lead and kept Dallas out of the playoffs in a 5-3, season-ending win by the Wild over the Stars on Sunday. When the Chicago Blackhawks lost at home to Detroit, 4-3, earlier in the day, Dallas had a chance to grab the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference field that looked like a long shot just a week and a half ago. The Stars had won their last four games and were in position to catch the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks and win the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Sidney Crosby scored in his second straight game and added an assist to help the host Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New Jersey Devils, 5-2, on Sunday night. Crosby, who snapped out of a career-long 12-game goal drought Saturday, gave the Penguins some breathing room with a wrist shot by goalie Martin Brodeur early in the third period. Evgeni Malkin also had a goal and an assist for the Penguins to push his points total to 97, tops in the NHL. Pittsburgh has won 10 straight at Consol Energy Center and moved back within a point of the New York Rangers for the top stop in the Eastern Conference.

An undisclosed family matter kept goalie Steve Mason away from the Flyers on Monday and out of the lineup for the team's home opener against the Florida Panthers. General manager Ron Hextall called it a sensitive issue and asked reporters to respect Mason's privacy. Mason was replaced by Michal Neuvirth. In a 7-1 loss Saturday in Florida, Neuvirth relieved Mason. "I'm happy I'm going to get to start, but obviously it's a very sad issue for a teammate," Neuvirth said before the game.

The legend of the Ghost That Saved the Flyers is growing. It spread north of the border over the weekend, in Montreal and Toronto, as Shayne Gostisbehere extended his NHL record for rookie defensemen by scoring in his 14th and 15th consecutive games. "I'm living the dream," Gostisbehere, a Florida native, said with a smile after scoring 29 seconds into overtime and giving the Flyers a critical 5-4 win Saturday in Toronto. "It's just cool how my teammates have been doing it with me and see how happy they get. It's awesome.

BEFORE THE Flyers' season got underway less than two weeks ago, the talk throughout training camp and the preseason centered on avoiding a slow start for the third straight season. General manager Ron Hextall warned against it. New coach Dave Hakstol was tasked with avoiding it. The players in the seemingly grew tired of hearing the questions about how they could avoid it. So when the Flyers started the year 0-1-1 on a trip to South Florida, including a 7-1 loss to the Florida Panthers, there was a little closed-door meeting with only the players.

IT WAS a game that general manager Ron Hextall called "critical" seven hours before the puck dropped, a strong statement given the infancy of the 82-game season. But coming off Saturday's embarrassing loss in South Florida, the Flyers needed to treat game No. 3 of the year - a rematch against the Florida Panthers - almost like a must-win. For a team that has started slow the last two seasons, a loss in last night's home opener - and with the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks coming to town tomorrow - would have been a downer.

From one end of their dressing room to the other on Monday morning, hours before their home opener, the Flyers insisted that the most striking news from their Florida road trip was nothing more than the media making Alps out of anthills. The words "team meeting" set off sirens in the NHL, suggesting that there's trouble within a club that has to be quelled, and the Flyers' players waited all of two games to call one. For a team coming off a six-goal loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday, with a rookie head coach in Dave Hakstol, this was hardly an encouraging sign.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Sunrise Boulevard isn't quite Packer Avenue, and Panther Parkway is by no means Broad Street. The roads that lead up to BB&T Center are filled with housing developments and a few shopping malls. The streets are lined with palm trees. Just west of the arena that houses the Florida Panthers are miles and miles of swamplands. This is where Peter Luukko chose to take on a challenge. The former president and chief operating officer of the Flyers and Comcast Spectacor was hired by the Panthers in February.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Two nights after an encouraging opener in which they salvaged a point against the defending Eastern Conference champions, the Flyers were overmatched and unready from the outset Saturday. Goalie Steve Mason, in what he called the worst start of his eight-year career, allowed four goals in the first 6 minutes, 46 seconds as the Flyers fell to the Florida Panthers, 7-1, before a sellout crowd at the BB&T Center. "There's nobody to put this game on except myself," Mason said, "and I take full responsibility for it. When your starting goaltender performs like that, it puts everybody behind the eight-ball right away.

The most underrated candidate to become the Flyers' next head coach has never had an NHL team finish better than third in its division, has coached in the postseason once over his seven years in the league, and was fired on the day after Christmas. At first glance, Peter DeBoer's resumé doesn't seem worthy of a spot near the top of the stack on Ron Hextall's desk, as if DeBoer were a second-class contender compared to the bigger names who have or might yet become available: Mike Babcock, Claude Julien, Todd McLellan.
