During the final minutes of the Eastern High School Hockey League championship game Monday, in which Malvern Prep defeated Monsignor Bonner 8-3, a chant rose among the Malvern fans. "Flyers Cup!

Next comes the Flyers' Cup, which begins Tuesday. The winner of that tournament plays the best teams in Pennsylvania for a state title.

The Germantown Academy ice hockey team enters the Suburban League playoffs tonight at Face-Off Circle in Warminster against one of the best teams in the Philadelphia area, Cherry Hill East. "They are the defending league champions and the defending Flyers Cup champions," said GA coach John Ioia. "However, I feel the teams are relatively equal. They have a stronger forward line, but we have superior defense and goalkeeping. They beat us twice during the season, but we can beat them.

If William Tennent defeats Malvern Prep in the final of the Flyers Cup tournament at 7:30 tonight at the Skatium in Havertown, the Panthers will get their long-awaited rematch with Meadville, the team that defeated them last year for the state ice hockey championship. The operative word in that sentence, Tennent coach Joe Paul said, is if. "I've played them 100 times in my mind," Paul said of Malvern Prep, "but we've never played them on the ice. It's going to be a wide-open game.

The Phillies-Chicago Cubs game is, without question, the best thing on the tube tonight. Heck, the way some players are talking about the lack of prepartion time, the game might be the comedy special of the year. Overshadowed by the beginning of baseball, however, is the end of the Flyers Cup scholastic hockey tournament. You can read all you want about the Phillies and other teams in today's Daily News baseball guide, but the Flyers Cup comes around only once a year. Tonight, the 11th annual title game pits Malvern against William Tennent at the Havertown Skatium.

It is the goal of every area scholastic ice hockey team to make it to the Flyers Cup, a postseason tournament touted by some as the Stanley Cup of Delaware Valley high school hockey. To be invited to the esteemed tournament - whose winner advances to the state championship - a team must win the title in its league, of which there are six in the area. But after a long season's struggle in which Downingtown seesawed its way past Conestoga in its final game of the regular season to capture first place by one point in the Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League, the team will not be in the Flyers Cup tourney.

The William Tennent High ice hockey team made its inaugural appearance in the Flyers Cup final a memorable one, riding the brilliant goaltending of senior Scott Shaw to a 3-1 victory over Conestoga for the title last night at the Haverford Skatium. Shaw, who had stopped 44 of 47 shots in a 4-3 victory over Malvern in the semifinals, saved his best game for last, stopping 40 of 41 shots to almost single-handedly give the Panthers the victory. "I wanted the Flyers Cup bad," he said after extricating himself from a pile of joyful teammates in front of his net after the final buzzer.

Brett Christie might have taken three strides before he was surrounded by 11 teammates at center ice during the Flyers Cup Class A division final Monday night. The dozen players from West Chester Rustin's hockey team converged, arms up, between the two penalty boxes and against the boards, yelling and screaming in celebration. The scene looked and felt like a championship celebration, and for all intents and purposes it might have been. They rejoiced because Christie's slapshot from just inside blue line sneaked past the West Chester Henderson goalie's five-hole, as well as the first-period buzzer, and gave Rustin a 3-0 lead.

Pennsbury's ice hockey team lacked the luxury of waiting to kill a penalty before beginning its comeback on Tuesday night. The sixth-seeded Falcons were shorthanded and staring at a three-goal deficit with 13 minutes left in the second period.

Philadelphia has become a big player on the national hockey stage. With the NHL draft at the Wells Fargo Center this weekend, it caps a four-year span in which the city has also hosted the Stanley Cup Finals, the Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, and the NCAA's Frozen Four. In other words, Philly has come a long way since it held a parade to welcome an NHL expansion team in 1967 and about 25 people showed up. "It's obvious we are one of the top hockey cities in America," said Larry Needle, executive director of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, "and this is another in a long line of hockey events in the city.

THERE WAS a great goaltender, and an underappreciated amount of skill, and it was all cradled lovingly in a clenched fist. Those were the Flyers who won the Stanley Cup, 40 years ago. They won, and they won again, and they might have won a third consecutive time if the goaltender, Bernie Parent, had not been injured. And then, well, you know. The Parent injury, Leon Stickle, the Edmonton dynasty, the choking situation, the Lindros controversy, Michael Leighton apparently missing the lesson about acute angles in geometry class - to repeat, you know.

Natalie Alvaro and Victoria Barretta hopped along the boards from inside Downingtown East's bench. They then stuck their heads over the ice to free up their sightlines just a little bit more. Katie Stueve jumped on a loose puck, and they couldn't miss what Stueve was going to do next. The junior defenseman went in alone on a breakaway, swooping from right to left across the crease, before she tucked a backhander into an open net. Her third of four goals gave Downingtown East a one-goal lead in the third period Wednesday night at IceLine in West Chester, and the Cougars went on to beat Unionville, 6-4, and end the Indians' string of four straight girls' Flyers Cups.

Up against a hungry St. Joseph's Prep team, La Salle boys' hockey squad followed the blueprint that served it so well over the years. Find a way to win.
