It takes all kinds of players to make a well-rounded hockey team, and nowhere on the Flyers can a more striking contrast be found than the one between centers Pelle Eklund and Ron Sutter. Eklund, once named the athlete of the year in his native country of Sweden, performs ballet on the ice, pirouetting around defenders and jetting through openings like a Formula One race car. Sutter, on the other hand, prefers the slam-dance approach. He'll go through a defender rather than around him. His game is spelled D-E-F-E-N-S-E, and he hassles opposing forwards like an irritated terrier snapping at your heels.

Now I understand why Fire Commissioner Hairston is always wearing a hat - it's to cover that enormous head and ego! It sickens me to think that he has betrayed his fellow firefighters in such a manner. He might be smug and laughing all the way to the bank, but I don't know how he can honestly look at himself in the mirror. He went from doing the job along side fellow firefighters to looking down his nose at them as if he were better. He has traded the selfless patch of courage worn by every firefighter and replaced it with a self-serving patch of deplorable distinction.

Jockey Carl Rafter crossed the finish line on Saluda Sam in the finale at Saturday's Radnor Hunt Races and couldn't help himself. He stood tall in the stirrups and launched his whip into the infield - a souvenir for a fan. Winning three steeplechase races in a day will do that to you. Based in Virginia, Rafter started by steering Meet At Eleven home in the $40,000 Radnor Hunt Cup timber stakes, the day's third race; added the $50,000 National...

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jeff Carter scored three goals, Jonathan Quick stopped 24 shots and the Los Angeles Kings matched an NHL record with their seventh straight road playoff victory, beating the Phoenix Coyotes Tuesday night, 4-0, to take control of the Western Conference finals. Los Angeles dominated the opener and was even better in Game 2, withstanding Phoenix's initial push and string of penalties for a 2-0 series lead. "I've been working hard in practice to get my game where I wanted it," Carter said.

THE TOUGHEST part of Tyson Chandler's night was the postgame interview. The California native and San Francisco 49ers fan, who had just tied a franchise record with his third straight 20-rebound game, was forced to face the media wearing a Ravens Super Bowl champion hat, payment of a lost bet with Baltimore fan Carmelo Anthony. "That made my day. You just don't know," said Anthony, who stood across the locker room and watched Chandler's interview with a smile. "It was a good day for me, it just was a coincidence that he had three games with 20 rebounds.

The Phantoms wasted a hat trick by Eric Chouinard in a 4-3 loss to the Syracuse Crunch last night in the AHL. Chouinard scored twice in the first period, giving the Phantoms a 2-0 lead, and again in the second period to give the team a 3-2 lead. But Mark Hartigan scored a power-play goal midway through the final period (with A.J. Abel off for hooking) and the 3-3 tie stood up through the overtime. It took seven rounds of the shoot-out for the Crunch to prevail, but a miss by Tony Voce set up the winning goal by Syracuse's Joe Motzko.

It was the kind of day you could hang your hat on. At least that's how actor Robert Cristophe saw it as he tried to work out a physical-comedy routine with a bowler on Rittenhouse Square. Despite forecasts of doom and gloom, yesterday was rather nice, with a high of 74 - straw-hat weather, as they used to say.

  For the second time in six days, Emily Santana netted five goals for the Springfield (Delco) girls' lacrosse team.

Holding onto a one-run lead entering the final inning of Gloucester Catholic's third game of the day, Marissa Cappello finished what she started. Cappello was a force in the circle, pitching a three-hit shutout and striking out seven in the Rams' 1-0 win over GCIT in the third round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Softball Tournament at Triton. Some heads-up baserunning on a grounder led to the Rams' run in the top of the fifth. A fielder's choice on a ground ball hit by the Rams' Maria Petrongolo scored Annie Robinson, who had tripled to get into scoring position.

THE PUCK traveled no more than 10 feet combined on Wayne Simmonds' three goals. Fourteen garbage bags later, filled with 639 hats and one pair of sneakers celebrating Simmonds' first career playoff hat trick, the team that has always believed once again captured the imagination of this playoff-starved city. There was no need to cancel the Flyers' pending Amtrak reservation at 30th Street Station last night. On the back of the Wayne Train, the Flyers staved off elimination and improbably got back to level ground in their best-of-seven, Metropolitan Division semifinal with a 5-2 thrashing of the Rangers to force a deciding Game 7. "He was all over the puck," captain Claude Giroux said of Simmonds.

SWEET BABY JESUS, it's Holy Thursday! The end of Lent is upon us, and so is your 40-day fast of beer, chocolate and/or peanut butter. What better way to celebrate your penance than with, yup, a chocolate-and-peanut-butter beer? I'm talking about one of the hottest brands on shelves right now: Sweet Baby Jesus from Baltimore's DuClaw Brewing. Store owners can barely keep sixpacks in stock, and the unusual brew has suddenly and surprisingly become 18-year-old DuClaw's top-selling brand.
