Rick Tocchet had a goal and two assists, and infrequent scorers Teppo Numminen, Brad Isbister and Dallas Drake netted goals as the Phoenix Coyotes defeated visiting Vancouver last night, 4-2, and ran their unbeaten streak to nine games. The win, the Coyotes' third in a row, left them tied with idle Dallas for leadership of the Pacific Division. It also denied Canucks coach Mike Keenan his 500th career victory. Jeremy Roenick had three assists and Keith Tkachuk two before Keenan pulled goaltender Garth Snow with 15:41 left in the game.

New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro will have surgery to repair a sports hernia, likely sidelining the oft-injured player for most of the rest of the season. DiPietro is scheduled to have surgery Tuesday. Newsday first reported the surgery, saying Islanders general manager Garth Snow said the best-case scenario for DiPietro's return was the beginning of April. The 30-year-old goalie has played eight games this season, going 3-2-3 with a 3.73 goals-against average.

For 40 minutes, this was the return to Philadelphia that Garth Snow had envisioned on that day last March when he stuffed his orange-and-black Abominable Snowman mask into an equipment bag. Snow was beating the Flyers - almost by himself, at times. Traded to Vancouver on March 4 for Sean Burke, a goalie the Flyers never even tried to sign after their disastrous 1997-98 season was complete, Snow had worked his way into the Canucks' starting job this season. Now he was showing the Flyers that he was more than just an oversized set of shoulder pads and an attitude.

The Boston Bruins are still seeking their first victory, but the outlook isn't totally bleak. At least the Bruins picked up a 2-2 road tie with the defending Stanley Cup champion Dallas Stars last night. "We deserved a better fate," said Bruins coach Pat Burns after his team outshot the Stars, 34-23. "That's how things seem to be going for us this season. But our effort was good night and if we continue to do that, we'll win our share of games. " The Bruins are 0-4-3, their worst start since 1964-65 when they opened at 0-8-1.

A week ago, there seemed to be few safer bets than Ron Hextall starting in goal for the Flyers in the playoff opener. But that was a week ago. In a bold move, unparalleled in recent years among serious Stanley Cup hopefuls, Flyers coach Terry Murray will send Garth Snow out to face the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight at the CoreStates Center in Game 1 of the first-round, Eastern Conference series, it has been learned. Snow, who turns 28 in July, has played 10 minutes of Stanley Cup playoff hockey in his life, including just one last spring as Murray maneuvered for extra time in the Flyers' final game.

Vincent Lecavalier gave his a parents a going-away present. The No. 1 overall pick in the June draft, Lecavalier scored his first NHL goal last night as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the visiting Vancouver Canucks, 3-2. "I was very happy to get it in front of them. They're leaving tomorrow," Lecavalier said of his parents, who are returning to their home in Ile Bizard, Quebec. "It took me eight games, but I finally got it. " Lecavalier scored on a low wrist shot while falling backward over goalie Garth Snow to tie it at 1-1 at 9:38 of the first period.

Garth Snow is alive and well in the NHL, thank you. The former Flyers goalie made 34 saves and Adrian Aucoin had a goal and an assist to help visiting Vancouver gain a 2-1 victory over Washington last night, the Canucks' first victory over the Capitals in nearly six years. "It's a big win for us [against] the defending Eastern Conference champions," said Snow, whom the Flyers traded to Vancouver for Sean Burke last March. "I felt good, I wasn't too happy about the goal I let in. But I was glad I contributed at the end. " Snow came up with a number of big saves in the final two periods as Washington continually pressured Vancouver.

Ron Hextall first gave Garth Snow a goaltending lesson through the magic of television. The rangy New England high school star would study the screen and watch Hextall claw and slash his way through another playoff game, springing from the goal to control the puck or sliding out to tap an opponent who camped too near. "I loved the way he played the puck. I loved the way he was emotional. He was someone I always looked up to," said Snow. After years of looking up to Hextall, now Snow can sit down with him. They share locker-room space and playing time with the Flyers, a pair of 6-foot-3 goalies who live to win hockey games.

For 55 minutes, this was a close game. The Flyers toyed with the indignity of losing to the beleaguered Vancouver Canucks, were stunted by a goalie they had traded away, and were wounded by their own mistakes - all of which made for a competitive game against an ailing team. Then - flash, zoom - came the shower of goals, and the game that was once frozen in a 2-2 tie last night at the First Union Center suddenly became the Flyers' 6-2 blowout of the Canucks, a team that has recently perfected the art of self-destructing late.

TO KICK OFF what is expected to be a busy summer for the Flyers, general manager Paul Holmgren brought in a steady defenseman to help shore up a broken blue line. Consider this one, though, a relatively short-term fix, given the player's age. The Flyers yesterday acquired the rights to Islanders defenseman Mark Streit, 35, who was due to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5, in exchange for a fourth-round pick in 2014 and Phantoms winger Shane Harper. "Mark is a player we would have had interest in on July 5," Holmgren said in a statement.

THE ISLANDERS' Garth Snow deserves to be in the running for the NHL's general manager of the year award. Count that among the things I never thought I'd type. Snow's quixotic, 9-year run at the helm of New York's forgotten sports franchise has had plenty of laughs. Remember his first order of business? Goaltender Rick DiPietro's 15-year, $67.5 million contract? Or what about that proposed trade at the 2012 draft, when Snow reportedly offered all seven of his picks (Nos. 4, 34, 65, 103, 125, 155, 185)

THE GOALTENDING market appears to be evaporating before the Flyers' eyes. Veteran Mike Smith inked a 6-year extension with the Phoenix, er, Bettman Coyotes yesterday to avoid hitting the free-agent market on Friday. Nik Backstrom re-signed in Minnesota for $10.25 million last week. Vancouver shipped Cory Schneider to New Jersey as Martin Brodeur's heir apparent, leaving buyout target Roberto Luongo as the Canucks' starter. And two more netminders high on the Flyers' list might not work out, either.

Who's wearing illegally large goalie equipment? Apparently, NHL general managers think it's more goalies than one might imagine. Despite streamlining goalies' equipment with a nearly 15 percent reduction after the lockout, the GMs have formed a large committee - with input from skaters, goalies, and even the players' association - to come up with new shrinkage rules this summer. Don't you wish the Flyers had a goalie who used the large equipment, as they did not long ago when Garth Snow wore oversize shoulder pads?
