SUNRISE, Fla. - The first NHL-mandated three-on-three overtime in history - it produced Tampa Bay's 3-2 win over the Flyers on Thursday - looked more like an out-of control video game than anything else. Blink and you missed an odd-man rush. Blink again and you missed an eye-opening save by the Flyers' Steve Mason or the Lightning's Ben Bishop.

Megan Vermeil said she prefers playing field hockey in warm weather. Abby Siana said she likes it better when it's cold.

But this year, this fall, is different for Bernardini, the school's girls' athletic director, who also coaches basketball and varsity lacrosse. After taking seven years off, she has returned to coach the school's varsity field hockey team, reclaiming her post in a sport that has driven her life from the beginning.
