Game 1: Tonight at 7 The Goalies It took the Flyers' Marty Biron until he was 30 years old for the chance to compete in the playoffs, and he's likely full of confidence now after stopping 39 of 41 shots in Game 7 against Washington. Coach John Stevens called it Biron's best game as a Flyer. He lost to the Canadiens, 5-2, in his only start against them, on Nov. 1, but he's 12-7 with a 2.17 goals-against average against them during his career. The Canadiens felt so strongly about 20-year-old rookie Carey Price that they dealt Cristobal Huet to the Capitals three weeks after they recalled Price from the AHL. Price became the fourth rookie goalie to get a Game 7 shutout in the 5-0 win over Boston.

MICHAL NEUVIRTH made 31 saves for his second shutout of the season and Alex Ovechkin scored his 19th goal on a power play midway through the second period to lift the visiting Capitals to a 3-0 victory over the Canadiens last night. Mathieu Perreault and Marcus Johansson scored first-period goals for Washington, which bounced back from a 3-0 home loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday to win for the third time in four games. Price stopped 13 shots for Montreal, 4-10-1 in its past 15 games - the last 14 under interim coach Randy Cunneyworth.

He had yielded four goals while facing only 18 shots in Game 3 of the Prince of Wales Conference final, which prompted his removal from the starting lineup for Game 4. And when he got into that contest, less than a minute into the third period, he allowed two more goals in seven shots, the sort of relief effort you would expect more from the Phillies' bullpen than from the goaltender of the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Montreal Canadiens lost both of those games - home games, to boot - to the Flyers, and more than a few observers suggested that goalie Brian Hayward had been as accommodating as a Welcome Wagon hostess.

The word "perspective" is not a part of the French-Canadian dialect. An Anglophone would define the term as the empty space between the 23 Stanley Cup banners hanging from the rafters of the Forum. Thus, on Tuesday, there wasn't a rue here where they didn't rue the day Patrick Roy was born. The sky fell. The Canadiens lost the first game of a playoff series. The Flyers reached up with their sticks and brought the wild bleu yonder crashing down on a city of 2.8 million Petit Poulets, all of whom saw this disaster pending as long as 11 days ago. That was when Nos Glorieux lost - gasp - an entire game of the Boston series.

Flyers reserve defenseman Ed Hospodar was suspended from the Stanley Cup playoffs yesterday by the National Hockey League as a result of the brawl he instigated before Thursday night's game against Montreal. Along with the suspension, the NHL levied $24,500 in fines. Every player who left the locker room to join the fray was fined $500. Hospodar, Dave Brown, Rick Tocchet, Don Nachbaur and Daryl Stanley of the Flyers were fined an additional $500 for fighting, as were Shayne Corson, Chris Nilan, Larry Robinson and Mike McPhee of the Canadiens.

MONTREAL - All is not well in the hockey capital of the NHL, but it got a little better for Montreal after it rallied past the Flyers and ended a three-game losing streak Friday night. Paul Byron scored the winner in the fifth round of the shootout as the Canadiens outlasted the Flyers, 3-2, at the Bell Centre. Nick Cousins scored for the Flyers to give them a 1-0 shootout lead, but it didn't hold up. The Flyers fell to 2-6 in shootouts. Montreal is 5-1. "It's hard to swallow right now," losing goalie Michal Neuvirth said.

The Rangers went out the way they were supposed to go out. Facing elimination and down by one goal, they managed only two third- period shots. Their one sniper, Pierre Larouche, had been shut down. Their excellent goalie, John Vanbiesbrouck, had been left with no margin for error. Their defense, crippled by injuries, was short of major league bodies. The fact that this happened two rounds later than expected was not of much consolation to the Rangers, nor should it delude the people who put this team together into thinking that their real selves had stood up in the victories against the Flyers and Capitals.

The Flyers have forced Game 7. I know Fitz is super excited about that and probably couldn't sleep at all last night. Who will win the final game of the series up in Boston? The Flyers certainly have momentum on their side. Talk of a Game 7 in Boston, however, gives me agita. It dredges up all those painful memories of Wilt's Warriors and 76ers having their hopes crushed in Beantown. I can see it now.
