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.

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.

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)

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.

STEVE MASON isn't exactly shy. When a New York Islander pulls back to unleash a slap shot tonight, chances are if you're listening close enough, you'll hear Mason barking commands like a platoon sergeant. "I'm pretty vocal," Mason said. "When I don't want someone in my way, I'll be yelling at them to move it. " There are two caveats, though, to what Mason calls the "art of shot-blocking. " He will only ask his teammates to move if there is enough time. And the cardinal rule to defensemen is: If you're going to block it, don't do it halfway.

STATE COLLEGE - Born and raised a mere 45 minutes from the Philadelphia sports complex, Penn State defenseman Connor Varley was surrounded by Flyers fans. He wasn't one of them, though. Varley, like his dad, was raised as a New York Rangers fan. Imagine how well that went growing up. "There was definitely a little animosity," Varley said with a laugh. "And I got a few trips here and there. " Sure, he didn't live and die by the orange and black. But doesn't mean Varley won't cherish coming home this weekend.

THERE ARE only two domains of which to choose from these days for fans of the local hockey team. One is the Land of Hope and Dreams, where impossible or highly improbable are vulgarities better left unspoken, where last night's 4-3 shootout victory over the Arizona Coyotes is viewed as another step in a long climb toward a potential playoff berth. The other is Futureland, occupied by those who see too many flaws in the current team to warrant the optimism needed for that other world.

On Jan. 13, 1968, in what was a more telling indictment of my social life than my taste in sports, I was sitting in the basement TV room of a college dormitory in Wisconsin watching a Saturday night hockey game between the Minnesota North Stars and Oakland Seals. It wasn't by choice. I was 18. It was Saturday night. And if I had to spend it in front of a TV, I'd have preferred the Jackie Gleason Show , Get Smart , or The Dating Game . But I was a freshman, and this was Wisconsin.

THE LITTLE BROTHER wouldn't go away. Mark Holmgren would sneak off to join his friends on the baseball diamond, on the football field, would try to skate his way from the small house in East St. Paul, Minn., to the outdoor rink two blocks away. There, little brother would be, almost always, a step behind. Welcome or not. Almost always, he was not. "We were real competitive with each other," Paul Holmgren, the Flyers president, said this week. "It wasn't the same brother relationship that a lot of people have.
