Matt Hendricks scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner, to lead the Hershey Bears to a 3-2 win over the Phantoms in an AHL game last night at the Giant Center. Matt Ellison and Mark Cullen scored for the Phantoms. Cullen tied the game, 2-2, 39 seconds into the third period with a shorthanded goal. But Hershey regained the advantage before that power play ended. Hendricks was chipping at the puck at the top of the Phantoms' crease, and it ended up bouncing off a Philadelphia defenseman and past goalie Scott Munroe 1 minute, 50 seconds into the period.

Rookie Denis Tolpeko scored twice to lead the Phantoms to a 4-2 win over the Binghamton Senators in the AHL last night.

Ryan Bayda's goal less than two minutes into overtime gave the Manitoba Moose a 2-1 win over the Phantoms in the AHL last night. The game at the Wachovia Spectrum was scoreless for more than two periods until the Phantoms finally broke through with 14 minutes, 40 seconds remaining in the third. Matt Ellison got his stick on a rebound of a John Slaney shot, and he slammed it past goalie Sebastien Centomo for a 1-0 lead. But with 2:49 left in regulation and the goalie pulled, Manitoba's Jason Jaffray shoveled one home on the backhand to tie it. Bayda came through for the Moose 1:28 into the extra session when he knocked home a rebound.

Matt Ellison scored his first three goals as a member of the Phantoms last night in a 4-2 AHL victory over the Lowell Lock Monsters at the Wachovia Spectrum. Ellison, 22, was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in a trade for Patrick Sharp and Eric Meloche on Dec. 5. Two of the winger's goals came on the power play. The last one, in the third period, came with the Phantoms shorthanded. Marc Cavosie also scored for the Phantoms. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Phantoms.

Touch 'em all, Patrick Kane, you'll never score a bigger goal in your life. The Blackhawks winger beat Michael Leighton at 4:06 of the first overtime to give Chicago a 4-3 victory and its first Stanley Cup in 49 years. Leighton was hugging the post, but Kane's shot found its way past Leighton's long side from the left wing. There was some question whether it went in, for everybody except Kane. "I knew it was in right away," Kane said, "I can't believe this just happened.

The Flyers and Blackhawks surprisingly swapped part of their futures last night as center Patrick Sharp was sent to Chicago for rookie right winger Matt Ellison. The Hawks also received 29-year-old Phantoms winger Eric Meloche in the deal. The Flyers got a third-round pick in the 2006 draft. Sharp, 23, played in 22 games this season, collecting five goals and three assists, but he was seldom used by coach Ken Hitchcock, who gave him barely eight minutes of ice time a night.

Stafford's game-winner came at 2 minutes, 41 seconds of the extra period, with Mark Murphy and Wade Skolney assisting. Tony Voce snapped a scoreless tie in the second period with a power-play goal at the 18:25 mark with assists from Stafford and R.J. Umberger. The Admirals tied it a minute later on Rene Bourque's score, with an assist from Matt Ellison.

Negotiations between the Flyers and winger Simon Gagne are continuing, with the team responding to Gagne's latest contract proposal yesterday. Gagne, the Flyers' leading scorer last season with 47 goals and 79 points, is thought to be seeking a long-term deal that would pay about $5 million a year. "We're still apart in how much we should pay Simon," general manager Bob Clarke said. "We'll continue to work at it and try and get it done, but right now there is a gap in salary demands.

Flyers Notes COLUMBUS, Ohio - When they have faced the Flyers, opponents haven't had many problems playing their second game in back-to-back nights. Three teams have been in that predicament against the Flyers - Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Anaheim. All three shrugged off the fatigue factor and recorded wins. Now, after a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, it's the Flyers' turn to test their early-season conditioning. On Tuesday, they will play their second game in as many nights when they host well-rested Buffalo (3-5-1)

CHICAGO - Two kids and a cast-off are the keystones of the Chicago Blackhawks. At age 22, Jonathan Toews is the youngest captain in the NHL and in the history of the Hawks. His close friend and first-line mate, Patrick Kane, is a mullet-wearing 21-year-old who looks as if he's 16. And one of the team's elder statesmen, Patrick Sharp, 28, once was a seldom-used Flyer. As the NHL and goalies around the league have found out, Toews and Kane are defined by superior ability - not age. And Blackhawks fans will tell you the overshadowed Sharp has developed into one of the more versatile forwards in the Western Conference.

The Flyers, looking listless after a two-day holiday break, missed a chance to move into a first-place tie in the Atlantic Division last night. In their first stop on a six-game, 12-day trip, the Flyers dropped a 5-1 decision to the streaking Chicago Blackhawks in front of a record sellout crowd at the United Center. Chicago scored two five-on-three power-play goals early in the third period to pull away from a 2-1 lead before the crowd of 22,712, the largest in franchise history to watch a regular-season game.

This is the second time around for Matt Ellison - at least as a Flyer. If the name isn't familiar, you might recall he came here from Chicago last December in the Patrick Sharp deal. Ellison played five games for the Flyers, had one assist, but couldn't crack the lineup, and ended up with the Phantoms. These days, there is little difference between being a Phantom and being a Flyer, as most of the Phantoms are now wearing orange and black, not purple. Ellison, because of injuries to the Flyers' forwards, is getting a second chance to show the organization something.
