An NHL arbitrator in Toronto yesterday awarded Mark Recchi of the Montreal Canadiens a one-year contract worth $4.5 million. This could directly affect Flyers center Rod Brind'Amour, whose salary-arbitration hearing is Friday in Toronto. Although the ruling makes Recchi the highest-paid Canadien in team history, the right winger had been seeking a four-year contract worth $24 million, or a one-year arbitration award of at least $6 million. Brind'Amour's agent, Ron Perrick, is using Recchi as one of his "comparison" players.

He still disdains making trades, Flyers general manager Bob Clarke says, because "in too many cases, it messes up peoples' lives, at least temporarily. " "Maybe if I hadn't been a player, I wouldn't feel that way," he said. "But I do. " So, on the morning of Feb. 9, when he made the deal that would shape the Flyers' season, the one that would propel them to the Atlantic Division championship and help push them into the Eastern Conference playoff finals, Clarke couldn't help but feel trepidation.

They fell behind twice. They trailed by two goals late. They had terrible penalty-killing. And they lost their best defenseman to injury. In the last month, the Flyers have wilted in the face of adversity, compiling a record of 0-8-4. Yesterday, skating with fresh legs and clear heads after four days off, the Flyers faced repeated hardship and didn't wilt, didn't buckle. Instead, they put together a furious third-period rally against the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings, coming back from a two-goal deficit to win, 5-4, and end their 12-game winless streak.

Mark Recchi was the hit man, Kevin Dineen took care of the goals and the Flyers prefaced this afternoon's game at the Spectrum against the Tampa Bay Lightning with a 9-2 rout Wednesday night of the defending Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens. Recchi threw a thunderous check in the first period to inspire his teammates and Dineen had his second hat trick of the season as the Flyers handed the Canadiens their second straight defeat and one of their worst ever. The victory was a big one for the Flyers.

One by one, they took the ice yesterday for an informal workout at the Flyers' practice rink at the Coliseum with springs in their skates and bounce in their step, looking forward to the afternoon when surely the NHL lockout would end and hockey finally would be played. But the noon deadline passed without a word from the negotiations in New York. The 15 or so players, including Eric Lindros, finished their two-hour practice a short time later and left the Voorhees facility in limbo, not knowing whether the regular season would start or be canceled.

Eric Lindros grabbed the St. Louis Blues by the throat, shook them bug-eyed and silly, and scored three goals in the first period last night to lead the Flyers to a rollicking 8-3 victory at the Spectrum. In addition to scoring his first hat trick of the season and the fourth of his two-year NHL career, Lindros bounced the Blues off the boards, scared them off the puck and nearly came to blows with St. Louis left winger Brendan Shanahan. Afterward, Lindros said he wasn't all that thrilled with his performance.

All his life people have been telling him the same thing. Too small. Didn't matter what he did to prove them wrong. Score a hundred goals a game, skate faster than a prairie wind, play meaner than a rabid dog. Didn't matter. Too small. Scouts would fly into his home town in western Canada to watch other young players and Mark Recchi would usually outplay them all and the scouts would do the same thing: Give him a pat on the back - Nice game, kid - and then they would mutter that it was too bad about the kid, all that talent and just not NHL material, too bad. "Everybody else got scouted," Recchi said, "and I was always one of the better players on the team.

Mark Recchi was given medical clearance yesterday to begin practicing with the Flyers today and will be in the lineup Thursday night in Game 1 of the team's Stanley Cup playoff series against Toronto. Recchi missed the final two games of the regular season and was thought to be suffering from post-concussion symptoms. But yesterday, team physician Jeff Hartzell said weekend tests had revealed that Recchi's headaches and other concussion-like symptoms were caused by a "vascular spasm.

BOB CLARKE has been Eric Lindros' biggest advocate for an invitation to the Hockey Hall of Fame for years. But even Clarke, now part of the Hall's 18-member selection committee for the first time, might not be able to swing enough votes to avoid his controversial former superstar being passed over for the fifth straight summer. The Hockey Hall of Fame will announce its induction class of 2014 this afternoon in Toronto. This year's first-ballot group - full of Philadelphia connections - may be powerful enough to bump Lindros again.

Mark Recchi has 576 goals, 956 assists and one more objective before he retires. "I'm hoping we get on a long run, it'll be real easy for me," the 43-year-old Recchi said after moving into 12th place on the NHL's career scoring list and leading the Boston Bruins to a 3-0 victory over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks last night. "If we win a championship, I'm gone. " Tim Thomas stopped 32 shots for his ninth shutout of the season, and Recchi had an assist to give him 1,532 points, one more than Paul Coffey.

Mark Recchi hears the old-guy jokes all the time. He is, after all, the most senior player in the NHL at 42 years old. "Every day, it's old man this and old man that," Recchi said after playing his 158th career playoff game Saturday afternoon. "It gets really bad when I fall asleep on the plane. " It's all in fun. Recchi can still play, and his teammates know it. Since coming to Boston in a trade with Tampa Bay in March 2009, the two-time former Flyer has had an impact on his most recent team - he has played for seven NHL teams, including three stints with the Pittsburgh Penguins, in a 21-year career - and is playing a key role in the Bruins' playoff run. In 81 regular-season games this year, Recchi had 18 goals and 25 assists; in seven playoff games, he has three goals and three assists.

Mark Recchi decided he'd had enough of Chris Pronger. So midway through the third period of the Bruins' 5-4 overtime win against the Flyers in Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Boston's 42-year-old winger went nose-to-nose with the Flyers defenseman. Quite an accomplishment, considering that Recchi is generously listed at 5-foot-10 and Pronger is 6-6. What unfolded was something to see: The oldest in the playoffs and one of the smaller players in the NHL refusing to give an inch against one of the league's most feared defenders.

The Boston Bruins chose not to worry about how they almost blew a three-goal lead. Instead, they celebrated the way they regained control of the game. Mark Recchi scored twice in the final 3 minutes, and Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots as Boston squandered most of a three-goal lead and held on to beat visiting Toronto, 5-2, last night. "Three-goal leads are the worst," Recchi said. "We were OK for two periods. In the third they came out and we weren't ready for it. It's nice that we responded after they did come back.

Mark Recchi joined the Boston Bruins hoping to win his fourth Stanley Cup ring. He decided to stay to take another shot at it. The NHL's sixth-leading active goal scorer signed a 1-year deal yesterday to return to the Bruins. Recchi, 41, obtained in a March 4 trade from Tampa Bay, said 4 days after the Bruins were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs that he might retire if they didn't offer him a contract. "He was of the mind that he had such a wonderful experience that if the club would like him to come back, he'd consider it," Recchi's agent, Richard Curran, told the Associated Press.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Scott Hartnell was tired. He couldn't catch Tampa Bay's Ryan Malone, who was closing in on Flyers goalie Marty Biron. So he did the first thing that came to mind. He threw his glove at Malone, giving the Lightning veteran a penalty shot with 16 seconds remaining in a tie game. The one-glove look was silly on Michael Jackson. It was positively stupefying in that situation. But, hey, everybody enjoys a good glove story, right? The difference between laughing and crying was the fraction of an inch of puck that clipped Biron's right skate.
