Dave Poulin's agent said early today that he expected the former Flyer to sign a contract extension with the Boston Bruins later in the day. Steve Mountain said he was awaiting the arrival of Harry Sinden, the Bruins' general manager, in Boston to resume discussions that began when Poulin was traded from Philadelphia to Boston in exchange for Ken Linseman on Tuesday. Sinden and Mountain both attended yesterday's NHL All-Star Game in Pittsburgh, and Sinden flew back to Boston late last night.

The Flyers will use prayers instead of right wings when they attempt to stretch their unbeaten streak to five games tonight against Boston at the Spectrum. Ilkka Sinisalo, who has been bothered by back problems for about a week, probably won't play. And Rick Tocchet, who suffered a five-stitch cut on a knuckle on his right hand in a fight with the Devils' Brendan Shanahan Sunday night, is questionable. "I'd be surprised if I could hold a stick well enough to play," said Tocchet, who didn't practice yesterday.

It still seems likely Dave Poulin will become a Boston Bruin rather than a full-time stockbroker, probably no later than Monday. And yet . . . Poulin still didn't report to Boston yesterday, where the Bruins skated to a 2-2 tie with the visiting Calgary Flames in their second game since trading Ken Linseman to the Flyers for Poulin in a swap of 31-year-old centers. Bruins general manager Harry Sinden had expected to talk to Poulin's agent, Steve Mountain, yesterday, to get the particulars on Poulin's reluctance to report.

Dave Poulin, the former Flyers center, ended a six-day stalemate with the Boston Bruins yesterday when he agreed to contract terms with Harry Sinden, the Bruins' president and general manager. Although the length and terms of the contract were not disclosed, Poulin's agent, Steve Mountain of Philadelphia, had said that Poulin was seeking a 20 to 50 percent increase from his current salary and at least a two-year deal. With the Flyers, Poulin was in the final year of what was believed to have been a three-year contract worth $250,000 annually.

The agent for former Flyers center Dave Poulin said last night that Poulin would report to the Boston Bruins once the two sides had reached an agreement about Poulin's future with the club. Poulin, traded Tuesday by the Flyers for center Ken Linseman, was unavailable for comment. "Dave doesn't want to go up there and get jerked around," said Steve Mountain, Poulin's Philadelphia-based agent. "He doesn't want to go up there for just three months. He wants to know what's going to happen in the future.

Dave Poulin, traded Tuesday by the Flyers to Boston for center Ken Linseman, said yesterday he had not decided whether to report to the Bruins. 'I'm still making evaluations about my situation," said Poulin, 31. "And I can't say when I will come to a decision. This has absolutely nothing to do with Boston as a team. Boston is a great team and a great city. " Poulin has developed so many business and personal ties in the Philadelphia area that a move would affect more than just his hockey career.

The birthday present arrived right on the blade of Brian Propp's stick, passed there by Gord Murphy. Propp, skating alone down the slot, still knew what to do with it, even at age 31, even with his Flyers future hanging by a thin strand of blond hair. Propp wristed the puck past Toronto goalie Allan Bester for a 2-0 Flyers lead 8:52 into the second period. It was Propp's 12th goal of the season and his first since sitting out Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh because coach Paul Holmgren felt Propp wasn't playing up to his potential.

Brian Propp is unhappy. Ken Linseman is embarrassed. And Flyers coach Paul Holmgren is getting desperate. Holmgren raised a lot of eyebrows when he scratched Propp and Linseman before Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Spectrum. Holmgren said he scratched the pair because neither was playing up to his potential. Propp, the second-leading goal scorer in Flyers history (behind Bill Barber), and Linseman, the player received from Boston last month in exchange for a popular center, Dave Poulin, have not been setting the ice on fire.

BEST BET Flyers vs. Canucks, 7:30 p.m. at the Spectrum, On PRISM and WIP Radio How bad are the Vancouver Canucks? Let us count the ways: They have lost twice as many games as they have won (13-26-8). They have won just two of their last 15 games. They are the only team in the Campbell Conference with a losing record at home. At home, they have killed off only 66.3 percent of the opposition's power plays (31 of 92), the worst in the NHL. It's enough to make a grown coach cry, but all Vancouver's Bob McCammon can do is sigh.

What would a Stanley Cup final be without at least a little bit of controversy or one-upmanship? Granted, the games usually begin before words start being tossed around like daggers. However, even before the Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins begin their best-of-seven Stanley Cup final here tonight, there already are hard feelings. The man in question is the Bruins' goaltender - and we're not talking about Rejean Lemelin. Although Lemelin has been the Bruins' main goalie through the first three rounds, Boston coach Terry O'Reilly has decided to switch to backup Andy Moog for tonight's opener.

At 68, Joe Watson is the oldest player competing in the Winter Classic alumni game between the Flyers and New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The oldest doesn't necessarily mean he is the most out of shape. Watson organizes and plays in about 10 Flyers alumni games each year. "It makes me feel young," said Watson, a defenseman who played on the Flyers' only two Stanley Cup champions, in 1974 and 1975, "The way I feel about life is, if I feel good, who cares what the [age]

IT'S ONE thing to achieve greatness in life. But to watch your child walk among legends must be a whole other story. When former Flyers defenseman Mark Howe steps onto the Hall of Fame stage in Toronto on Monday, he will have his dad by his side. The 975 professional goals Gordie Howe scored never made him beam this much. "I am thrilled beyond belief. I am so proud of him," Gordie Howe said before joking, "but like Eddie Shore once said, 'What took him so long?' " Mark Howe played 22 professional seasons, including 10 with the Flyers from 1982-92.

Looking ahead to Monday's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the seventh-seeded Flyers and sixth-seeded Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Boston leads the series, three games to one.   Oldies but goodies The oldest forwards who are playing for the Flyers and Boston Bruins happen to be the leading goal scorers in the series. That would be Danny Briere, 32, who has three goals for the Flyers in the first four games, and Boston's Mark Recchi, 42, who has three goals and is tied with Miroslav Satan for the team lead.

When the Flyers cleaned out their lockers last April after missing the playoffs for the first time in 18 years, Keith Acton was one of several guys who seemed to take that extra, lingering glance across the room. Acton was a couple of weeks shy of his 32nd birthday. He was playing for his fourth NHL team, and had been used sparingly as a fourth-line center and penalty killer in his 10th full NHL season. He had been scratched from the lineup several times. He had totaled just 13 goals and 14 assists in the 69 games he had played.

Ken Linseman presumably was in Edmonton last night, preparing to start the season with the Oilers. Bob Clarke probably was in Minnesota, with his North Stars. Dave Poulin? He was camped out at the left of the Flyers' goal, waiting for a Don Sweeney point drive to boom off the back boards and appear magically on his stick before Ron Hextall could even blink. Somehow, it had to be Poulin scoring the goal that broke a 0-0 deadlock 13:26 into the first period. It couldn't have been Wes Walz or Craig Janney or Dave Christian.

It seems that Mats Sundin, the 19-year-old center who was selected first overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1989 draft, has re-evaluated his readiness for the NHL. And perhaps he has discovered the lure of big money. Sundin, the first European to be drafted first in an NHL entry draft, said last month that he wasn't quite ready to compete in the NHL and that he wanted to play one more year with Djurgarden of the Swedish Elite League. Sundin said he needed time to mature both physically and socially.

Jari Kurri, star right winger for the Edmonton Oilers, became a free agent with compensation yesterday, but it is doubtful whether any other NHL club will pay the price to sign him. Kurri, who became the league's all-time playoff goal-scoring leader and sparked the Oilers to their fifth Stanley Cup this past spring, has said he expects to sign a contract to play in Italy. "It should be done by the first or second week of July for sure," Kurri said last week, discussing his negotiations with club officials in Milan.

Dave Poulin, once the classiest of Flyers, hasn't bothered to send a thank- you note to his former team for dealing him to the Boston Bruins. No doubt, though, Poulin is grateful. On Jan. 16, the Flyers traded the 31-year-old center to the Bruins for Ken Linseman and explained the move as a boost to their offense. Without the popular and highly respected Poulin, the Flyers played with heavy hearts, and they're still waiting for that offensive boost Linseman was supposed to give them.

It was Jan. 30, and the Flyers, on the way toward their worst season in 18 years, were in the process of beating the Pittsburgh Penguins on goals by veterans Tim Kerr, Brian Propp and Mike Bullard. Despite the victory, the Flyers were mired in last place in the Patrick Division with a 20-26-7 record. And in between the first and second periods of that game at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena, Flyers president Jay Snider expressed his concern about the lackluster performances the team was receiving from most of its veteran forwards.

It had been 45 days since the Flyers won back-to-back games. And with forwards Tim Kerr and Ilkka Sinisalo sidelined because of injuries, it didn't seem likely that the sixth-place Flyers would break that string last night against the second-place New Jersey Devils. But using an invigorated power play, pushy defense and another outstanding goaltending job by Ken Wregget, the Flyers outplayed the Devils and won, 3-2, at the Meadowlands. The victory, which followed Sunday's triumph over the Los Angeles Kings, gave the Flyers their first winning streak since they won three straight between Jan. 30 and Feb. 3. It also pulled them to within one point of the fifth-place New York Islanders and three points of the fourth-place Pittsburgh Penguins, who hold down the final playoff spot in the Patrick Division.
