Martin Brodeur stopped 24 shots for his 100th postseason win, and a three-goal first period was enough to help the visiting New Jersey Devils spoil the Florida Panthers' long-awaited return to the Stanley Cup playoffs in a 3-2 victory Friday night. Brodeur also picked up an assist for his 10th postseason point, and became the second goalie in NHL history to reach triple figures in playoff wins. Only Patrick Roy has more, with 151.   Coyotes howl The everyone-chips-in approach helped the Phoenix Coyotes win their first division crown and, fittingly, led to a victory in the first game of the playoffs as well.

It took only one look for voters to pick this year's class of Hockey Hall of Famers. Former New Jersey Devils great Scott Stevens was elected in his first year of eligibility, along with Mark Messier, Ron Francis and Al MacInnis. Stevens won three Stanley Cup titles with the New Jersey Devils while punishing the opposition as the game's best hitter. In addition to the championships Stevens won with the Devils, he was chosen as playoff MVP in 2000. A fearless player known as much for his leadership as his bone-crunching body checks, Stevens proves there is room in the Hall for more than just offensive players.

NEWARK, N.J. - Superstar forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the sports world Thursday, retiring from the NHL to return to his native Russia. In leaving, the 30-year-old Kovalchuk walked from $77 million left on the 15-year contract that he signed with New Jersey in 2010, including guaranteed annual salaries of at least $11 million over the next four seasons. The Devils announced the stunning news Thursday afternoon, saying that the 30-year-old Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL. "Gentlemen, this wasn't a decision made by the New Jersey Devils," a testy Lamoriello said at the end of a conference call held less than an hour after the retirement was announced.

Playing without suspended star Claude Giroux, the Flyers were trying to stave off elimination against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. "G's been our best player all year. We owe him one," winger Zac Rinaldo said before the game, before he sparked the Flyers with five first-period hits. "This one is for him. " Well, they'll have to pay the debt another time. The New Jersey Devils eliminated the Flyers, 3-1, and won the Eastern Conference semifinal series, four games to one. A Flyers season that had seemed so promising after they jolted the Stanley Cup favorite Pittsburgh Penguins came to a crashing end. The Flyers lost the last four games to the hungrier Devils; they had not lost four straight all season.

The partners are all in to take advantage of what they say could be a potentially lucrative online-gambling market in New Jersey.

Defenseman Kimmo Timonen is undecided about whether this will be the final season of his stellar 15-year NHL career. But he conceded that if the Flyers overcame the odds and won the Stanley Cup, it would be "the perfect way to leave the game. " Timonen will make his decision in the summer, he said before the Flyers hosted the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. "I want to see how we do in the last 18 games. I want to feel the playoff atmosphere. That's a goal where I want to be . . . because once you get in the playoffs, you don't know what's going to happen.

At 42, ageless right winger Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. Fact is, he has been the New Jersey Devils' top forward this season. Jagr will face his former Flyers teammates Tuesday in a key Metropolitan Division matchup at the Wells Fargo Center. "He protects the puck really well and you just have to keep him on the outside," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. Older players like Jagr, Streit said, "take care of their bodies and live a good lifestyle, and it makes a difference.

NEWARK, N.J. In the first partnership of its kind to explore the new frontier of virtual gambling in New Jersey, the owner of the 76ers and the New Jersey Devils has partnered with the online gambling company partypoker to merge customers and expand their reach.

By the time Jakub Voracek was born, his father already had dared to defy an evil regime's reach for the sake of his family's freedom. In 1988, Miloslav Voracek sneaked out of his home in Kladno, Czechoslovakia, and embarked on a treacherous journey, riding a train to the border and hiking for two days through the forests of Austria until he reached a friend and fellow defector in West Germany. He remained there for six weeks, plotting a way for his wife and daughter to join him, until he returned home after coming to a prescient realization - that things would change for the better soon enough, that the Soviet Union's empire and influence were doomed to crumble.

NEWARK, N.J. - Even with several regulars given the night off, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette couldn't have envisioned such a sluggish effort less than a week before Wednesday's regular-season opener against Toronto.

"We are in a training camp and evaluation period, and it is a process for guys to put their cards on the table, and I was disappointed in that tonight," Laviolette said.

Ray Emery, locked in a goalie duel with Steve Mason for the Flyers' starting job, tried to make an impression on coach Peter Laviolette on Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils. Emery made 17 saves and, except for getting caught out of position on the Devils' first goal, played well in the Flyers' 2-1 loss. Emery was sharp early, making six saves while the Devils were on overlapping power plays. Before the game, Laviolette said the final three exhibitions would play a huge role in determining the starter for the Oct. 2 season opener against Toronto.
