SANDY Burdsall writes that she has learned "to put up with" the Phillies, Eagles and Sixers getting news coverage before the Flyers. She must realize that those are real sports played by real athletes. Hockey is just something for Canadians to do during the winter. If not for the NHL, hockey players would be in some beer league playing softball. Joseph Hammell Lewisville, Texas

Hockey may still lack the necessary popular apppeal to get a network television contract, but the game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils Sunday night had no trouble making the network news. This was thanks mainly to a complex low comedy that started with the alleged assault of an official by the Devils' coach. It eventually involved everyone from a New Jersey Superior Court judge to three hastily rounded-up game officials, who initially skated onto the ice in what appeared to be green-and-yellow clown suits.

Comly Auctioneers on Wednesday will handle a bankruptcy auction that will enrich the lives of hockey fans, on and off the ice. "This will be a sale of quantity and quality, the liquidation of all new equipment, obtained through a store now in bankruptcy," said Dan Comly Jr. "Some lots are so arranged to appeal to dealers, like bundles of sticks or helmets by the dozen," Comly said. "But other lots are small enough to attract the attention of individuals like parents, the non-dealer buyers.

Webster's defines superstition as "a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance or a false conception of causation. " That makes it sound as if superstitions are ridiculous rituals that we perform only because we don't know how else to affect events or other people. Balderdash! Is wearing the same underwear every time you play H-O-R-S-E silly just because you wore them the first time you shut out your fourth-grade son in the driveway?

Conor H. O'Kane, 19, of Haddon Heights, an ice hockey standout who played on the Bishop Eustace Preparatory School varsity team and the La Salle University club team, died after collapsing at his home Saturday, Jan. 15. Doctors have suggested that the cause of death was heart-related, family members said. A final determination is pending. In high school and college, Mr. O'Kane was the team jokester everyone loved. Before games and during practices, he would enter the locker room and turn on an exaggerated Canadian accent.

As with football, the hitting of opponents - both legally and otherwise - is seen as being part of the game in ice hockey. So it comes as no surprise that players suffer concussions, as Flyers Claude Giroux, Chris Pronger, and Brayden Schenn have this season. But head-injury experts suspect that the true number of concussions is far greater than what is reported, both in hockey and other sports, both in professional and youth leagues. And in some respects, hockey players may be at greater risk than athletes in other sports, said Douglas H. Smith, director of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Brain Injury and Repair.

Dwight Maetche's first love may be lacrosse, but it's his second love that has enabled the Philadelphia Wings' goalie to be named "All-World" three times during his nine-year career in Canadian box lacrosse. "Hockey has done a lot for me," said Maetche. "I grew up in Edmonton. When the lacrosse season was over (in July), there wasn't much else to do but hockey. The puck moves faster, but it is actually less accurate than a lacrosse ball. " Maetche, 29, will start in the nets during tomorrow's 2 p.m. Spectrum matinee, when the Wings (2-0)

NEW YORK - I went to Brooklyn to cover a game and ended up covering a practice. I mean, we're talking about a practice.   The original assignment: the Flyers vs. the New York Islanders Saturday night at the Barclays Center. As tasks go, this did not rank up there with covering the America's Cup in Australia, which The Inquirer did once during the golden age of newspapers and United States yacht racing. Still, I was looking forward to seeing Brooklyn's relatively new arena for the first time.

The light drizzle one afternoon last week didn't faze the children rollerblading on the Burke Playground hockey rink, chasing the puck with their sticks. With New Year's approaching, the saloonkeeper up the street was switching his beer inventory from bottles to cans. The South Philadelphia neighborhood hadn't changed that much since the days when one of the kids hitting the puck was Jim Kenney.

Great coaches produce results. This fall, Lindsay Kocher, the head coach of the Haddonfield field hockey team, produced results. Kocher led her team to a 21-2-1 season that culminated in a Central Jersey Group 1 trophy. After losing the championship game last year in a shootout, Kocher said the team was determined not to let this season end the same way. "I think they just came into preseason just really focused. They made the playoffs last year and were left with a bad taste in their mouths," Kocher said.

"She's probably the best player I've ever coached as far as end line to end line, sideline to sideline, offensively, defensively and transitionally. " The senior has not lost in her four years at Eastern.

Center Claude Giroux, who figures to be the Flyers' lone all-star representative this season, likes the new three-on-three format the league has created for the Jan. 31 game in Nashville. Instead of the traditional All-Star Game, players representing the four divisions will have three 20-minute contests in the tournament, which will have two semifinal games followed by the championship. "It's going to be pretty exciting to play and it's going to be pretty exciting for our fans," Giroux said.
