Here's hoping the National Hockey League continues to experiment with miked officials during its games. The third such test came during Wednesday's Flyers-Rangers game from New York. In conjunction with the NHL office, Madison Square Garden Network attached a microphone to referee Kerry Fraser - Channel 57 carried the feed locally - and kept the line open throughout the game. The microphone literally took viewers onto the ice for live dialogue between players and officials.

After 1,901 games, the most ever by a National Hockey League referee, Kerry Fraser retired after yesterday's game between the Flyers and the Rangers. The man has worked a dozen Stanley Cup Final series, the World Cup of Hockey in 2004 and the Winter Olympics in 1998, but he had never been a part of anything like this: Flyers 2, Rangers 1, shootout, postseason on the line. "It was a Hollywood script," he said. "Games like that, somebody has to lose, unfortunately. Down to a shootout with the same teams, where one of them comes in [to the playoffs]

Now that Jay Pandolfo has found his scoring touch, it's time to work on his celebration technique. The New Jersey Devils overcame the strangest no-goal of the playoffs to grab the lead in the Eastern Conference finals. The Ottawa Senators had top defenseman Wade Redden in the lineup and some luck on their side, but that wasn't enough as they lost, 1-0, last night. Sergei Brylin scored on a masterful deflection, his first goal of the playoffs for the Devils, who lead the best-of-seven series, 2-1. Game 4 is tomorrow afternoon in New Jersey.

Pittsburgh Penguins star Mario Lemieux, who once called the National Hockey League a "garage league," said he's fed up that the league hasn't progressed in 10 years and he no longer will promote it. "I'm done with that kind of stuff," Lemieux said. "They can promote the marginal players if they want. " Lemieux yesterday was fined $500 and warned for his outburst against referee Kerry Fraser in Monday's game against Tampa Bay. The incident earned him 22 penalty minutes, including his third career game misconduct.

The Florida Panthers don't change. They came into last night's game at the CoreStates Center as the NHL's only unbeaten team. They came out of it the same way. In fact, at 7-0-3 after a 3-2 decision over the Flyers that was not as close as the final score, the Panthers are the only NHL team without at least two losses. The main reason can be found in the "goals against" column of the standings, where their total of 17 in 10 games is the league's lowest. Defense, they say, is the one thing you can always rely on - scoring luck comes and goes, but strong defense gives you a chance to win every night.

Let the record show that the first player to get a game misconduct at the Spectrum because of the NHL's latest crackdown on high sticking was New Jersey's John MacLean. It will not surprise you then that the record also shows the first coach to complain was the Devils' Jim Schoenfeld. "It was not called the way I was told in Chicago (at an August NHL seminar)," Schoenfeld said after the Devils' 4-1 opening-night loss to the Flyers. Schoenfeld thought that referee Kerry Fraser is not required to give the five-minute major - which makes the game misconduct automatic - if an injury to the face and head is an accident.

He was trying to look happy, but when you've just been pounded, 9-4, by the Pittsburgh Penguins, it's hard to look that way. So Flyers winger Kent Manderville offered a tepid smile and explained, "I'm just relieved. " Manderville's long scoring drought finally ended Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. He had gone 122 games and fired 181 shots on net before tallying the goal, his first as a Flyer. Fittingly, it was a shorthanded attempt, with Manderville taking Paul Ranheim's outlet pass through the neutral zone for a breakaway against Garth Snow.

Pittsburgh Penguins star Mario Lemieux was fined $500 yesterday and warned for charging at referee Kerry Fraser in an NHL game Monday. Lemieux said he was fed up with the league and would no longer promote it. "I'm done with that kind of stuff," Lemieux said. "They can promote the marginal players if they want. " In his most critical remarks since he ridiculed the NHL in 1992 as being a glorified minor league, Lemieux said the league's reluctance to enforce its interference rules has him reconsidering whether to retire.

Offensive tackle Eric Moore of the New York Giants, who had visited the Eagles on his free-agent tour, signed yesterday with the Cincinnati Bengals. The offensive line was one of the weak spots on Cincinnati's 3-13 team last season. Moore, 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, has played six seasons for the Giants since he was drafted in the first round from Indiana in 1988. He started five of New York's last seven regular-season games at left tackle, and also started at that position in both of the Giants' playoff games.

The second-longest Stanley Cup final game in history ended at the wee, happy hour of 12:16 a.m. for the Montreal Canadiens. For the Calgary Flames, the morning was still young, because it promised to be sleepless. Game 3 tossed on Brad McCrimmon's giveaway that enabled the Canadiens' Mats Naslund to send the game into overtime with only 41 seconds remaining, then turned on a controversial penalty call by referee Kerry Fraser in the sudden death. Like sheep jumping one by one over a fence, 38-plus minutes of overtime went by before Ryan Walter poked Stephane Richer's rebound past Calgary goalie Mike Vernon with only 1:52 remaining until a third sudden-death period.

Kerry Fraser thrust his arms outward Sunday afternoon to signal Brian Boucher's playoff-clinching save against the New York Rangers. As the crowd erupted, exultant Flyers poured onto the ice. And Fraser headed off to a small dressing room in the bowels of the Wachovia Center to pack up his skates one last time. After 30 years as an NHL referee, he was hanging it up. "What a hockey game," said the Hammonton, N.J., resident, wiping the sweat from his face with a towel. "What a finish.

A disputed call led to a two-goal swing in the New York Islanders' favor yesterday, but it couldn't prevent the Isles from being the Flyers' proverbial punching bag. Again. Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell ended scoring droughts as the Flyers outlasted the Islanders, 2-1, and snapped a two-game losing streak at the Wachovia Center. It was the Flyers' 14th straight win over the Islanders, the longest current streak by any NHL team over an opponent. The victory also equaled the Flyers' longest winning streak against any team.

The Flyers almost gave in to human nature last night. After a series of intense matchups against Eastern Conference rivals, followed by four days off during a weekend break for the All-Star Game, the Flyers might have been a little too happy to have the bottom-dwelling Los Angeles Kings come to town looking like a soft spot on their schedule. So things were in place for the Flyers to be caught off guard. But teams on a roll often find ways to win on nights when the gears aren't meshing.

Reporters stepped a bit gingerly into the cramped coaching office at the Flyers' practice facility yesterday afternoon, until they determined Roger Neilson was unarmed. The Flyers' coach was his old, genial self, even though he awaits a conference call this morning with NHL discipline czar Colin Campbell that could result in his suspension, even though his team just set a franchise record by going 12 successive games without a victory, even though unemployed coach Barry Melrose went on ESPN Tuesday night and hinted darkly at Neilson's demise, with barely concealed glee.

The Flyers trailed by only a goal last night when referee Kerry Fraser handed them a get-well-soon card, and a nicely wrapped gift with it. He gave them a two-man advantage for one minute and 20 seconds. For the first two games, the Flyers had lamented bad bounces as much as their bad play. After their second loss, their coach started complaining about obstruction penalties. Terry Murray's complaints seemed to be mostly baseless, coming a day after the second loss, but Fraser acted in the first period as if he had listened.

Cocky Flyers fans who claim they want the New York Rangers in the next round of the playoffs might want to rethink that position. To hear the New Jersey Devils tell it, fighting it out with New York is like fighting city hall. The Rangers have these players, see, whose stuff already makes up about half of hockey's Hall of Fame. And that status, say the Devils, gives them privileges mere muck-and-grinders, like Bill Guerin, wouldn't even dream of. Last night at Madison Square Garden, the Devils lost a game-tying, third-period goal when a replay showed Guerin's skate to be just inside the crease as Doug Gilmour scored.
