Oddity is commonplace at Union College. The tiny liberal-arts school in Schenectady, N.Y., has a bizarre motto - "We All Become Brothers Under the Laws of Minerva. " Its campus contains one of the world's only 16-sided buildings. And it has had not one but two presidents with the first name Eliphalet. So no one should be shocked if, odd as it sounds, this college of 2,100 students, with no athletic scholarships and a sports budget comparable to what its three Frozen Four rivals spend on hockey alone, departs Philadelphia this weekend as the 2014 NCAA men's ice hockey champion.

This Friday, when the Hobey Baker Award is presented to 2014's top NCAA hockey player, the ceremony at the Loews Hotel in Center City should be more poignant than usual. For a first time, it will happen in the hometown and final resting place of the award's namesake, an early 20th-century hero whose astonishing legend spanned sports, war, and literature. Hobart Amory Hare Baker was a flesh-and-blood Philadelphia Main Liner whose accomplishments were as fantastic as any in fiction.

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?

Joe Paul played ice hockey in the Wintersports organization and for La Salle High School 17 years ago, but even all that did not quench his thirst for participation. So Paul, a resident of Warminster, decided to help the resurrected team at William Tennent High School by taking on the coaching job. "I've been involved with hockey since I was 8 years old," Paul said. "I like the opportunities that sports give the kids to compete and I love the sport of hockey itself. I'll do almost anything I can to help the kids.

GOING into last night's Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, the Flyers' critical playoff statistics included: 14 wins. 73 goals scored. 195 points. 622 shots on goal. But the most stunning was the number of fights: One. The Flyers are brawling less and winning more. And while I'm not arguing cause-and-effect, I believe the caliber of the game gets better with less fighting. Go ahead and call me a middle-aged wimp. And yes, I was here in the early 1970s.

Top-flight college hockey doesn't exist in the Philadelphia area. Yet, the new award presented to the NCAA's top goaltender is named for a Montgomery County native, one whose geographical disadvantage was overcome by a will as unyielding as his glove hand. Mike Richter, back in Philadelphia on Friday to present the first Mike Richter Award to UMass Lowell goalie Connor Hellebuyck on a Frozen Four off-day, was as much a hockey anomaly as his Flourtown roots. He preferred orange juice and vegetables to beer and sandwiches.

Before Joe Logue traded in his skates for track spikes, his primary craft involved a sheet of ice and a hockey puck. While getting cut from the ice hockey team at Pennridge in his freshman year was a major emotional setback, Logue said it opened the door to reach his potential on the track. "When I first joined track, I was only out there to stay in shape for ice hockey," Logue said. "Then I got cut from the hockey team, I focused on track, and things really took off. "I guess it was a blessing that I got cut from the hockey team, because if I hadn't, I wouldn't be where I am today.

THE SEASON was still young. Vincent Lecavalier returned to the Flyers' lineup from a fracture in his lower back on Dec. 21 in Columbus and was moved to the wing for the first time in his 15-year career. It was Game No. 36. Steve Downie sat out that game and sliding Lecavalier to the wing was a cut-and-paste move for Craig Berube. Lecavalier, 33, was still new to the Flyers. He talked about the move with Berube at the time, but didn't voice his displeasure for the seemingly temporary transition.

NEW YORK - For years, Bob Clarke has been one of many Flyers executives to lobby for superstar Eric Lindros to be included in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Now, Clarke will have his say - and not just on Lindros. The Hockey Hall of Fame announced today that Clarke was appointed as one of three new members of the 18-person selection committee - which votes in secret. He will join Nashville GM David Poile and Los Angeles president of business operations, Luc Robitaille, to serve under new selection committee chairman John Davidson.

MONTREAL - Just as the sun crackled over the Mount Royal summit yesterday, throngs of people made their usual weekend pilgrimage downtown. The route and ritual was familiar, if not the time of day. Fans clad in red and white streamed past Bell Centre, hockey's current cathedral, and packed bars - before liquor was even allowed to be served - to share in the camaraderie of this country's golden hockey generation. When the final horn sounded in Sochi and all of Canada erupted, the bright lights were once again shining on former Flyers forward Simon Gagne.

SOCHI - Let's face it, Americans don't usually give much thought to Canadian borders. You flash a smile, and you're through. We're neighbors, eh? Not enemies. But Friday night, in an Olympic hockey semifinal, Canada threw up an impenetrable wall around its net and its national game, defeating the United States, 1-0, in a contest that, depending on your national allegiance, was either wildly entertaining or maddeningly frustrating. "They kept us out of their zone," said New Jersey native James van Riemsdyk, his succinct assessment of the intense 60 minutes as good as any. The only goal came on a Jamie Benn deflection of a point shot early in the second period.

Shea Weber scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 6 minutes, 54 seconds to play, and Canada survived a scare from Latvia to advance to the Olympic men's hockey semifinals with a 2-1 win Wednesday night. Carey Price made 15 saves for the Canadians, who were stretched to the limit by Latvia goalie Kristers Gudlevskis. The 21-year-old Tampa Bay prospect, who has played mostly for the Lightning's AHL affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y., made 55 saves in a spectacular performance, nearly pulling off one of the biggest upsets in hockey history largely by himself.
