The New York Rangers have added veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals one day after Marc Staal was struck in the right eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Flyers. Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

After the most frustrating season of his NHL career, defenseman Michael Del Zotto will bring a resolute attitude to the Flyers. "It was a bit of a humbling season," Del Zotto said Wednesday. Traded from the New York Rangers to Nashville in January, he was spurned in the free-agent market until the Flyers signed him to a one-year, $1.3 million deal on Tuesday. "This offseason is the most motivated I've ever been to get back and prove people wrong - and get back to where I was before.

Seeking help for their defense, the Flyers agreed to terms Tuesday with veteran free agent Michael Del Zotto on a one-year deal. The team announced earlier in the day that defenseman Kimmo Timonen was hospitalized in Finland with blood clots in his lungs and his leg. Del Zotto, 24, had a goal and four assists in 25 games for Nashville last season after notching two goals and nine assists in 42 games for the New York Rangers. Del Zotto had 26 goals and 95 assists in 292 games over five seasons with New York.

By the midpoint of the first period Tuesday night, Steve Mason could have ripped off his goalie mask and dared the New York Rangers to shoot, and he would have caught the puck in his teeth with a smile. This was always going to be how the Flyers would survive to reach a Game 7, and here they are now after their 5-2 victory: one game in Madison Square Garden, one chance to win a playoff series they probably should have lost by now, carried there on Mason's broad and sturdy shoulders. That Game 6 score testifies to the Flyers' finest performance of the series, to the way they came at the Rangers in waves over the final 45 minutes Tuesday.

Sid the Kid is back. Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins star, plans to play against the New York Rangers on Thursday, his first game in more than three months following a second lengthy bout with concussion-like symptoms. On Tuesday, the 24-year-old center worked out with teammates and got bumped around enough that he feels prepared for the grind of the final month of the regular season and the playoffs. "I'm just trying to make sure I progress and remain symptom-free," he said.
