The Flyers have found the replacement for television analyst Bill Clement during the Winter Olympics. The Daily News has learned that former Flyers winger Gary Dornhoefer will be their TV analyst for nine games during February while Clement is working as an Olympic hockey analyst for the TNT cable network and for CBS Radio.

Flyers play-by-play announcer Jim Jackson will make the move from radio to television next season, the team said yesterday. Jackson, 32, will succeed Gene Hart, who was reassigned last week after serving for 28 years as the television play-by-play announcer. The Flyers said Jackson's replacement as the play-by-play announcer on radio would be named within a few weeks. "It was an easy decision for me to make," said Jackson, who served as the Flyers' radio play-by-play announcer for the last two seasons.

Ken Hitchcock called it the new Gordie Howe hat trick. There were 12 seconds left in Tuesday's 2-1 Flyers win over the New Jersey Devils. John Madden, who had won 6 of 7 face-offs with the Flyers' Peter Forsberg, was lining up against him for another. "Peter is playing against one of the best face-off guys in the world," the Flyers' coach said. But on this draw in front of the Flyers' net, Forsberg won. The puck squirted toward the left boards. Forsberg made a mad dash, got the puck and cleared it out of the zone.

Cheer up, Flyers fans. Flyers games will be back on the tube when the long- delayed NHL season begins. The NHL is expected to announce a slashed, 48-game schedule today. PRISM will carry all Flyers home games. Road games will be on Channel 17, PRISM or SportsChannel. The NHL shutdown and the major league baseball players strike that abruptly halted the 1994 season last August has not been good for PRISM's business. PRISM never reveals its number of lost subscribers. The response to such inquiries is a reminder that 80 percent of PRISM's programming is movies and other entertainment.

Flyers fans without cable television should start bracing themselves for fewer games. The Flyers' contract with WPHL-TV (Channel 17) expired after this NHL season. Both sides are talking about a new contract, but with Channel 17's WB network programming commitments increasing Sundays through Wednesdays, it is more difficult for the station to carry Flyers games. Ron Ryan, the Flyers' chief operating officer, said yesterday that the team has been pleased with its relationship with Channel 17 since the 1991-92 season.

Anyone saying "Yo, Steve" in the Flyers' radio booth this season will get a dual response. Holdover analyst Steve Coates will be working with new play-by-play man Steve Carroll. Carroll yesterday was named as Jim Jackson's radio successor. Jackson has moved to Flyers television, where he will join veteran analyst Gary Dornhoefer. Jackson replaces longtime Flyers voice Gene Hart, who's now involved in public and community relations for the team. For the past five years, Carroll, 40, broadcast the Nashville Sounds, the Triple A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox in the American Association.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said last night that "several" clubs had responded to his queries about acquiring Flyers center Alexandre Daigle. One of those clubs, the Edmonton Oilers, has shown extra interest in follow-up phone calls. But a source close to the negotiations said late last night that the Oilers want Daigle, a restricted free agent after the season, to commit to a new deal, something he is reluctant to do. Reports out of Edmonton say that the Flyers would trade their problem - Daigle has just three goals and can't get more than four minutes of ice time per game - for the Oilers' problem.

ROSS LONSBERRY arrived in Philadelphia from sunny California on Jan. 28, 1972, as part of a seven-player deal from the Kings, the largest trade in NHL history at the time. He wasn't all that thrilled with the trade. "The travel is brutal for any player in LA, but other than that, I loved the West Coast," Lonsberry told reporters then. "I'd be lying if I said the weather didn't make me lose interest at times - not during a game, but maybe at 8 in the morning when I had to get up for practice.

Its developers call Xfinity Live the "fourth stadium experience" - a wave of sight, sound, and smell including a 32-foot-long Sony LED high-definition television, a phalanx of smaller monitors, and the aroma of dishes emanating from diverse eateries coming together at the heart of the city's stadium complex.

Left winger Simon Gagne's days as a member of the Flyers could be numbered. Gagne, 30, the longest-tenured current Flyer, has waived his no-trade clause, an NHL source confirmed Friday night. The Flyers and Los Angeles have been talking about a deal, but the Kings have said they want to keep Jonathan Bernier and Jonathan Quick, two goalies that interest the Flyers. If the Flyers sweetened the deal, they might convince the Kings to trade one of the goaltenders. Goalies Marty Turco and Evgeni Nabokov are still available in the free-agent market, but the Flyers would need to trade a huge salary - such as Gagne's - to fit one of them under the $59.4 million cap. Gagne could not be reached for comment.

The Flyers faced a possible Stanley Cup elimination game Wednesday night, a familiar scenario this postseason but one that nonetheless filled their fans with angst, anticipation, and alcohol. The steady rain cut down on the pregame parking lot activity outside the Wachovia Center. But 90 minutes before Game 6, the orange-flavored main concourse was swirling like Tang in a blender. Long-ago-Flyers Bernie Parent, Gary Dornhoefer, and Bob Kelly appeared to be hiding between a pillar and a corridor booth.

BARRY ASHBEE was standing in the Spectrum locker room after the Flyers upset the Bobby Orr-led Boston Bruins to win their first Stanley Cup in 1974. Ashbee, a ramrod straight defenseman, wore sunglasses to protect his right eye, damaged when a puck shot by Dale Rolfe of the New York Rangers struck him in a semifinal game. As his perspiration- and champagne-soaked teammates celebrated, Ashbee said softly, "You might never see another bunch like this. " Pausing, Ashbee said, "I don't cry much, but I was in tears the last minute-and-a-half.
