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

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?

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.

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)

IN OCTOBER, hockey great Gordie Howe was so debilitated by a stroke he wanted to die. "He was saying, 'Take me out back and shoot me,' " son Murray Howe told the Associated Press. "He was serious. It wasn't like a joke. I said, 'Dad, let's just see if we can help you first.' " Howe was 86 when he suffered the stroke, which caused slurred speech and loss of use of his right arm and leg. Murray, a diagnostic radiologist, and Howe's other three children, took the Hall of Famer to Mexico where he was injected with donor stem-cells.

YOUR KID plays hockey, so you shell out a little extra and buy a quality helmet to protect his or her noggin. Good idea, right? Yes and no. Any helmet is better than none at all. But, according to a report, over a quarter of the headgear worn by hockey players don't do a good job of protecting against the risk of concussions. ESPN's "Outside the Lines" reported yesterday that researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute will release their findings today after testing 32 helmets that received certification from the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC)

CALGARY - Walk through the double doors with the shiny Flames emblem, down the hall past the 1989 Stanley Cup photo and the list of leaguewide award winners painted on the wall, and there is a room buried in the bowels of the oddly shaped Saddledome. It feels more like a closet, less like a luxurious NHL locker room. In the corner of the cramped Calgary dressing room, a cubby belongs to John Gaudreau - next to a rack of hockey tape and skate laces. It is a true "rookie" stall. No player with any veteran status would ever be shacked up there by the equipment staff.

VANCOUVER - Believing that too many games are decided in shootouts, NHL general managers have recommended that at least part of overtimes feature three-on-three play, a format that would have to be approved by the players association. The Flyers seem to favor the new format, which would create wide-open play and reduce the number of shootouts. The Flyers are 3-9 in shootouts this season and an NHL-worst 30-60 since the rule was adopted in 2005-06. "Considering our shootout record, it might help," Flyers coach Craig Berube said Tuesday after the team's morning skate.

If I could change anything about 11th Hour Theatre Company's world premiere of Michael Ogborn's Field Hockey Hot , I'd have opened it a month ago, in the depths of this winter's merciless ice and cold. Never mind the heat in its title - the musical's sunny, neon-hued, retro-'80s theme paired with the gung-ho cast's calorie-torching exertions alone might have raised the mercury at least a few notches. The production, funded partly by a Kickstarter campaign, represents a real coup for the young company.

A HALF-EATEN bag of Skittles was left on the locker stall labeled No. 13, a sign that the player it belonged to was around somewhere. The Calgary Flames had just returned to Wells Fargo Center in almost full gear from their practice at the University of Pennsylvania. Reporters walked around the room on one of the longest days of the season, for players and coaches alike, the NHL trade deadline. But perhaps the safest guy in the dressing room emerged moments later and walked over to his stall, though he didn't return to the bag of Skittles.

Kaitlin Gaudreau asked of the Gloucester Catholic product who has become known across the continent as "Johnny Hockey.

HIS PHONE buzzed and "Patrick" popped up on the screen. Shawn Cannon already had a pit in his stomach. It was 4:30 last Monday afternoon. It was too early. His son, Patrick, wasn't finished hockey practice for another hour. His fear was confirmed upon answering, when a voice other than his son was on the other end. "It was Shane, my son's teammate, telling me that Patrick got hurt in practice. He didn't say how bad, but I could tell it was serious," Shawn Cannon said. "An ambulance was already at the rink.
