NEW YORK - For years, Bob Clarke has been one of many Flyers executives to lobby for superstar Eric Lindros to be included in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Now, Clarke will have his say - and not just on Lindros. The Hockey Hall of Fame announced today that Clarke was appointed as one of three new members of the 18-person selection committee - which votes in secret. He will join Nashville GM David Poile and Los Angeles president of business operations, Luc Robitaille, to serve under new selection committee chairman John Davidson.

DETROIT - Luc Robitaille became the most prolific goal-scoring left wing in NHL history and added an assist as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Washington Capitals, 3-1, last night. Robitaille scored his 611th goal 1 minute, 50 seconds into the game when he tipped in a shot from the point by Kirk Maltby. It was Robitaille's 21st goal of the season and broke his tie with Bobby Hull, whose son Brett is Robitaille's teammate. Brett Hull scored with 45.3 seconds left in the first period to break a 1-1 tie. The goal gave Hull a tie for third on the all-time list in game-winning goals with his father.

Scratch New York as Wayne Gretzky's next home. Though a trade is still said to be in the works, the New York Rangers said they aren't getting him. "I don't foresee a trade for the New York Rangers," general manager Neil Smith said last night. The Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues and Toronto Maple Leafs reportedly are interested in acquiring the Great One before the March 20 trading deadline. "He will be traded," one management source told the Associated Press earlier yesterday.

The Los Angeles Kings have given multiyear contract extensions to coach Darryl Sutter, general manager Dean Lombardi, and president of business operations Luc Robitaille. The Stanley Cup champions announced the deals Friday. Sutter took over for the fired Terry Murray in December 2011 and immediately led the Kings to the franchise's first championship. The veteran coach went 25-13-11 in the regular season before eighth-seeded Los Angeles' 16-4 rampage through the playoffs. Last-minute moves The Washington Capitals have recalled defenseman Tom Poti from Hershey of the AHL, bringing back someone who hasn't played in an NHL game in two years because of injuries.

All was quiet on the Wayne Gretzky trade front yesterday, including The Great One himself. Gretzky spent about five minutes on the ice at a practice in Los Angeles and left without talking to reporters. His right hip, which he injured in Detroit on Tuesday, is apparently still bothering him. With the New York Rangers out of the Gretzky chase - at least for the moment - the attention focused on the St. Louis Blues, who have re-entered the competition for the NHL's all-time leading scorer.

Larry Robinson was once again left shaking his head. For the second night in a row, his visiting Los Angeles Kings outshot and outplayed an opponent only to be stymied by a hot goaltender. Wednesday night, it was the Toronto Maple Leafs' Curtis Joseph. Last night, Ottawa's Ron Tugnutt closed the door, stopping 31 shots to lead the Senators to a 3-1 win. "We've got a huge black cloud hanging over our heads right now," the Kings' coach said. "Sooner or later it's going to break.

The NHL season is perched precariously in the back seat, the gas pedal is down to the floor and danger lurks on the road ahead. Labor talks ended abruptly yesterday, even though a collective bargaining agreement probably needs to be in place by mid-December to save the season. "You're saying we have two more weeks, but I'm not quite sure. And even if we did, it goes by awfully quickly," said Cliff Fletcher, the Toronto Maple Leafs' general manager. "It's like driving a car 100 miles an hour, racing toward a cliff.

While Ron Hextall and Luc Robitaille choose their very different weapons tonight at the Spectrum, the apples-vs.-oranges argument over who is the best rookie in the NHL will continue. Hextall, the Flyers' goalie, has a 34-18-6 record and a 2.90 goals-against average. Robitaille, the Los Angeles Kings' left wing, has 37 goals and 33 assists. Robitaille is being credited with the Kings' 10-point improvement over a year ago at this point, a gain that will be enough to get them into the playoffs they missed last season.

It's no longer just the Wayne Gretzky Show in New York. Goaltender Mike Richter is suddenly shining for the Rangers, not to mention Luc Robitaille. Richter extended his unbeaten streak to nine games and Robitaille scored twice as the Rangers continued their recent surge with a 4-0 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Kings last night. "I feel like I'm playing a little bit sharper now, but the team is playing really well in front of me," Richter said after making 37 saves for his second shutout of the season and 16th of his career.

Kevin Stevens has learned the lesson of being careful about what you wish for because you just might get it. The Pembroke, Mass., native dreamed of playing for the Boston Bruins. When it happened, the dream became a nightmare. The Bruins, feeling they could wait no longer for the left wing to regain his scoring touch, traded him to the Los Angeles Kings yesterday for right wing Rick Tocchet. Both players have been bothered by injuries, Stevens with lower back spasms and Tocchet, a former Flyer, with a bruised left shoulder.

There's a long list of things coach Ken Hitchcock wants to change in the way the Flyers play this season. Hitchcock wants more scoring from his third and fourth lines. He wants more flexibility from his players in doing the odd chore now and then. And he especially wants a team-wide focus on penalty-killing, since the Flyers finished a horrid 27th in the league last season with a 79.1 percent success rate. Randy Robitaille, who was on the ice in last night's home exhibition opener against the New Jersey Devils, was surprised to hear that he had been drafted into the coach's new penalty-killing corps.

Luc Robitaille passed Hull to become the most prolific goal-scoring left wing in NHL history and added an assist as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the visiting Washington Capitals, 3-1, last night. Brett Hull also scored to pass his father and move into third place on the career list of game-winning goals. Robitaille scored his 611th goal 1:50 into the game when he tipped in a shot from the point by Kirk Maltby.

Chris Gratton, the Tampa Bay Lightning captain, was traded to the Buffalo Sabres for centers Brian Holzinger and Wayne Primeau and defenseman Cory Sarich late last night. The teams also exchanged draft picks, with Tampa Bay receiving a third-round choice this year and Buffalo getting a second-round selection in 2001. Gratton, in his sixth season with the Lightning, is third on the team with 41 points. He has 14 goals and 121 penalty minutes in 58 games. Gratton's second stint with Tampa Bay lasted only 110 games.

With great reluctance, the Flyers agreed to come home. They were really starting to like it out here. Going in, the trip looked formidable: three games in California against up-and-coming teams, the last one on the second night of a back-to-back, against the team that has compiled the West's best record in this still very young season. But Saturday's 5-3 blitzing of the Los Angeles Kings wrapped up a 2-0-1 trip and sent the Flyers home yesterday with a solid feeling about how they stack up against some of the quality teams in the speedy West.

The high-powered Los Angeles Kings will be without star left winger Luc Robitaille for two to six weeks because of a broken left foot, the club said yesterday. The 33-year-old Robitaille is tied for the NHL lead with 10 goals, and the team lead with 16 points. Last season, he led the Kings in goals (39), assists (35), and points, and became the 27th NHL player to record 500 goals in a career. Robitaille was hit with a puck in a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh on Oct. 28 but played the next three games after X-rays came up negative.

Dave Andreychuk will remember last night's four-goal game the same way he remembers the five goals he scored in one night almost 14 years ago: It could have been more. "Every chance that I get a shot on goal, I want to get a goal," he said after his outburst tied a Bruins franchise record and led Boston to a 7-3 win over the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning last night. "They don't come around too often, and it could be a long time before the next one comes around, a night like this.

The Flyers paid a final visit to the aging Great Western Forum last night, and instead of coming away with an impressive victory, they blew a two-goal lead and fell to the Los Angeles Kings, 4-3, on a long goal by Jozef Stumpel with three-tenths of a second to play. The Flyers had strong goaltending from Ron Hextall until the final minutes, when he gave up a soft goal that tied the score at 3-3 and a 55-footer from Stumpel to win it. The winning shot beat Hextall, who was far out of the net, after Stumpel took a pass in the neutral zone and unloaded a shot that was similar to several that Hextall was beaten on in the Stanley Cup finals two years ago against Detroit.
