NEW YORK - Justin Williams remembered pretty well the first time he was spectacular in an important playoff game. Yes, all playoff games are important, but some are more important than others, and this was one of those. This was in April 2003, a first-round Game 7 between the Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Williams passed to Simon Gagne 31/2 minutes in for the Flyers' first goal, then scored with 51 seconds left in the first period for their second, and they were on their way to a 6-1 rout.

Despite their legacy as Broad Street Bullies, the Flyers yesterday drafted one forward who was voted most gentlemanly player in his league and another whose weight is 17 times his total penalty minutes. General manager Bob Clarke apparently meant it when he said that, beginning with the drafting of Simon Gagne in 1998, the Flyers were trying to find young, swift forwards with either a deft scoring touch or innate playmaking ability, regardless of their size. The Flyers found two such forwards yesterday in the 37th NHL amateur draft in the form of Canadian right winger Justin Williams, taken 28th overall in the first round and Russian right winger Alexander Drozdetsky, selected 94th overall in the third round.

Authorities are investigating allegations that Sacramento Kings player Justin Williams sexually assaulted a female acquaintance, a Sacramento Police Department spokesman said yesterday. Team spokesman Troy Hanson said Williams has been given an indefinite leave of absence and returned to Sacramento from a road trip to New Mexico to obtain a lawyer, a step recommended by team officials. Hanson would not say whether the team planned to suspend Williams. "We recently became aware of a complaint involving Justin Williams that apparently is being investigated by the Sacramento police," Hanson said.

THERE IS no player offensively skilled like Sidney Crosby in this weekend's NHL draft. There is no player as defensively stout as the Kings' Drew Doughty. So says Flyers general manager Ron Hextall. Nevertheless, there are reasons to be optimistic about the Flyers adding productive talent, starting with tonight's first round at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have the 17th pick, which Hextall does not believe is high enough to draft an immediate impact player. He characterized the draft as good but not great.

Justin Williams prides himself on doing the "little things" for the Eastern boys' basketball team. On Thursday, those small contibutions added up to a big victory. Williams scored 12 points, grabbed five rebounds, and joined several of his teammates on the floor in scrambling for loose balls in Eastern's 37-35 win over Cherry Hill East in an Olympic Conference American Division clash of Top 10 teams. "I don't care about stats," Williams said after the hard-fought game in the Cougars' gymnasium.

It would be correct to say Darren Gibson rose to the moment. It would also be correct to say he fell back. Gibson, a junior swingman at Eastern High School, specializes in taking charges. He is a master at the dirty job of drawing offensive fouls. "I think he has 34 of them," Eastern coach Kevin Crawford said. "I've had some kids that we good at taking charges. I've never had a kid with 34 of them. " Gibson's 34th was his most important of the season, the "play of the game," in Eastern's 45-43 win over archrival Cherry Hill East in the South Jersey Group 4 quarterfinals, according to Crawford.

The Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes signed Justin Williams to a long-term deal yesterday. The Hurricanes reached agreement with Williams - a key contributor during the run to the title - on a 5-year, $17.5 million contract, keeping the 30-goal scorer among the franchise's core young players. They also announced deals with defensemen Niclas Wallin and Andrew Hutchinson and right wing Craig Adams. The Hurricanes hope to reach a deal with second-year star Eric Staal over the weekend when the free-agent signing period begins.

ARLINGTON, Va. - His early years with the Flyers showed promise, but few could have forecast that Justin Williams would become one of the most clutch NHL postseason performers. The Washington Capitals right winger, who began his career in 2000 with the Flyers and stayed with them until being traded to Carolina in January 2004, has been a major part of three Stanley Cup winners. He helped Carolina win a Stanley Cup in 2006 and was on Los Angeles Kings championship teams in 2012 and 2014.

Justin Williams celebrated his 20th birthday in style last night. The speedy Flyers right winger played alongside fiery center Jeremy Roenick in the team's home opener against the Florida Panthers and contributed a pair of goals. "This is where I wanted to be at the beginning of the season," Williams said. "That was one of my goals - to play with him. " Williams also had an assist on a first-period goal by Eric Weinrich. Roenick had one piece of advice for his line before the game.

NEWARK, N.J. - Winning Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals did more than keep the New Jersey Devils alive. It gave them a sniff, a scent, a feeling. Call it momentum if you want. For one game, Martin Brodeur and the Eastern Conference champions showed they could not only play with the Los Angeles Kings, they could beat them, too. The 3-1 win in Los Angeles on Wednesday prevented the Kings' coronation ceremony and forced the NHL to pack the Cup and ship it back to New Jersey for Game 5 Saturday night.

NEW YORK - Justin Williams views himself more as the butt of a joke than the answer to a trivia question. Which NHL player holds the record for most points in Stanley Cup playoff Game 7s? Williams set the new mark earlier this month with his 14th career point in seven Game 7 situations, in which he is now 7-0. The two previous recordholders: Wayne Gretzky and Doug Gilmour. "It's kind of more like which name doesn't belong?" Williams said with a smile on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

ALEX STEEN stole the puck from goalie Jonathan Quick behind the net and scored a shorthanded goal to give the Blues a 2-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night in St. Louis in the opening game of their Western Conference playoff series. Steen scored unassisted on a backhander at 13:26 of overtime less than a minute after Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk was whistled for double-minor high sticking when he cut Dustin Penner. Steen also scored on a power play in the first period for the Blues, who ended an eight-game losing streak against the team that swept them in the second round last spring.

NEWARK, N.J. - Eventually, the Los Angeles Kings would give up a power-play goal, their goalie Jonathan Quick would commit a gaffe and the Kings would lose a playoff game on the road. The first two happened on the same play in the first period, leading to the third and fateful event and the pressure on the Kings' psyche was turned up a few more notches. For the second time in four days, the Stanley Cup was not far away from the Kings, ready to be held high and passed from player to player.
