Hockey stars spanning generations came together to honor Montreal Canadiens great Maurice "Rocket" Richard yesterday. "Maurice Richard was an intense man, passionate, true to his values and convictions," Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte, archbishop of Montreal, told mourners in Notre-Dame Basilica.

Fifty years ago Tuesday, Ed Snider, Jerry Wolman and others brought an NHL expansion team to Philadelphia. The Snider-Wolman relationship didn't last long. The Flyers? Their relationship with fans grew as they became one of the league's elite franchises. You could look it up. Since their first season in 1967-68 - a year after the franchise was awarded - the Flyers have a 1,877-1,304-588 record, a winning percentage of .576. Only the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins have a better winning percentage in that span (both at .601)

What good would it do the Tampa Bay Lightning to beat the Flyers? They can't win the Stanley Cup because they've come under the (cue the spooky music) Hex of the Habs, a phenomenon discovered by David Bontempo. Bontempo, 62, a retired social worker from West Springfield, Mass., has noticed a peculiarity about the NHL playoffs over the years: Since the league expanded in 1968-69, 19 teams have beaten the Montreal Canadiens in a playoff round before the finals, and none of those teams has gone on to win a Stanley Cup. The Lightning swept Montreal in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

MONTREAL - Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere has a special bond with his grandfather, Denis Brodeur, a Montreal native who moved to Florida when he was younger. It was his grandfather who bought him his first pair of skates when he was 3 years old, coached one of his youth teams, and used to bring him to the Florida Panthers games with his season tickets. So you could understand why "Ghost" felt a little nostalgic Friday to play his first NHL game in the city where his grandfather grew up. "I know he'll be watching [on TV]

Radko Gudas represents everything that the Flyers once were and should no longer aspire to be. He is supposed to be their intimidator, a defenseman who provides an all-important physical presence to a lineup that otherwise lacks it, someone who gives opponents pause before they consider coming after Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek or another of the team's truly indispensable members. He is supposed to be all those things. He has proved to be something else entirely: a cheap-shot aficionado, reckless, careless, damaging to the Flyers' chances of winning and to other athletes' health and safety, a player who can't be trusted by either his teammates or his opponents to play a tough, clean game.

THE FIRST game won't make or break what the Flyers concede is their most important month of the season. The Flyers have their busiest month of the season with 15 games - the final being on Feb. 29 at home against the Calgary Flames. It is complicated by the fact that they'll have five straight games away from home from Feb. 14-23 because ventriloquist/standup comedian Jeff Dunham and then the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will play the Wells Fargo Center. That a ventriloquist with a bunch of puppets needs a venue the size of Wells Fargo is beyond me, but the lowest-priced ticket is $27. Nevertheless, the Flyers play at the New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes.

The Flyers' slumping special teams regrouped and played a major role in snapping a three-game losing streak Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Brayden Schenn had three points, and Shayne Gostisbehere and the sizzling Sean Couturier each contributed a goal and an assist as the Flyers outlasted the Montreal Canadiens, 4-3. The Flyers' much-maligned penalty kill was 4 for 4. The PK allowed six goals on 12 chances during the 0-3 West Coast trip. The power play, which has struggled recently, also got a goal from Wayne Simmonds.

The Flyers went to the film room Monday and predictably did not enjoy what they saw from an 0-3 West Coast trip. In losses to Anaheim, San Jose and Los Angeles, the Flyers allowed six power-play goals. Their work on special teams, especially with the recent slump of the penalty killing unit, needs major improvement. The Flyers entered Monday ranked 26th in penalty kill percentage.

MONTREAL - The Flyers' penalty-killing unit is, well, killing them. It happened for the second straight night, this time in a 6-3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at the earsplitting Bell Centre on Saturday. Montreal scored on its only three power plays as it built a 3-0 lead en route to its fifth straight victory.

NEW YORK - The New York Rangers, a team that looked beatable before outlasting the Flyers in the opening round, continued their improbable journey Thursday night at frenzied Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts, sparked by Dominic Moore's goal and Henrik Lundqvist's goaltending, defeated the Montreal Canadiens, 1-0, and won the Eastern Conference finals, four games to two. The victory sends New York to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since Mark Messier and Co. won the crown in 1994, ending the Rangers' 54-year drought.
