NHL general managers discussed reducing the size of goalie equipment and increasing video review Wednesday in Toronto, and the league and NHL Players' Association expressed a desire to grandfather in mandatory visors. Mathieu Schneider of the NHLPA said about 73 percent of NHL players wear shields. "By the sheer numbers of players wearing them, you're seeing a big change in visors," Schneider said. On the issue of video review, league executive Colin Campbell said there was no move to a so-called coach's challenge.

Bob Clarke watched the Flyers' sloppy first-period performance in a 4-3 loss to New Jersey Thursday night. And the Flyers' president/general manager heard many fans in the CoreStates Spectrum vehemently place all the blame on goalie Ron Hextall. Clarke advises everyone to relax. "We won eight in a row and everybody got real excited, like we were a Stanley Cup-champion team or something," he said yesterday before the Flyers left for today's game in Pittsburgh. "We kept saying let's not overreact to that, and we're not going to overreact to this.

The red line, an NHL staple for 55 years, may be history. Elimination of the red line was among seven rule changes backed by NHL general managers yesterday after three days of meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz., to discuss ways to improve the flow of play, encourage forechecking and create more scoring. The GMs cannot implement changes, only recommend them to owners, who meet in June, possibly in Buffalo, N.Y. In addition, the league will examine three areas after the Olympic break: a second referee, obstruction infractions and goaltenders' equipment, including glove, blocking pad, stick and the leg pads that have grown 2 inches in width in recent seasons.

NHL GENERAL managers discussed reducing the size of goalie equipment and increasing video review Wednesday in Toronto, and the league and NHL Players' Association expressed a desire to grandfather in mandatory visors. Current rules allow goalie pads to go 55 percent of the way between your knee and your pelvis. "The feeling of the managers today was that that seems to be a little bit too generous and if we can find maybe a number that is a little lower that provides adequate protection then we're willing to take a look at that," said Kay Whitmore, the NHL's goalie expert.

It probably won't happen. But even Bob Clarke, among the most circumspect of NHL general managers, had to admit that it was not beyond the realm of possibility. The Dallas Stars have a backup goalie named Roman Turek, who could be a No. 1 goalie. In fact, many people say he could be a very good No. 1 goalie. Had the Stars lost early in the playoffs this season with Ed Belfour, it has been speculated that they would have tossed their 34-year-old starter into next week's expansion draft to stock the Atlanta Thrashers and started over with Turek next season.

New York Islanders defenseman Andy Sutton tore a hamstring and will be sidelined from 4 to 6 weeks. Sutton was injured in the closing seconds of Monday's 3-2 victory over San Jose and was helped off the ice. An MRI taken yesterday revealed a partial tear of the hamstring. It is the latest blow to the Islanders defense already missing Brendan Witt and Bruno Gervais. Witt, who was replaced by Sutton on New York's top defense pairing with Radek Martinek, has missed three games since spraining his knee Feb. 12 and is expected to be out 1 to 2 more weeks.

SIDNEYY CROSBY is ready to give Broadway its latest revival act. The Pittsburgh Penguins star plans to play tomorrow against the New York Rangers, his first game in more than 3 months following a second lengthy bout with concussion-like symptoms. The 24-year-old went through an arduous workout with his teammates yesterday and got bumped around enough that he feels prepared for the grind that awaits over the final month of the regular season and beyond. "You're not going to get hit to the extent that you would in a game," Crosby said.

NHL GENERAL managers ended 3 days of meetings yesterday with little discussion about upcoming collective bargaining negotiations between the league and the NHL Players' Association. The current agreement, that ended the seasonlong lockout in 2005, expires Sept. 15. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told the GMs to conduct "business as usual" according to the current agreement, including working under the salary cap of between $63 million and $64 million. "The update is, there was no update because there's nothing going on," Bettman said.

Jerred Smithson scored 1 minute, 57 seconds into overtime, and the Nashville Predators moved to the brink of winning their first playoff series with a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 5, in Anaheim, last night, taking a 3-2 series lead. Captain Shea Weber tied it on a long slap shot with 35.3 seconds left for the Predators, who had never even won three games in a series before their dramatic comeback stunned the Ducks. Both teams scored two goals apiece in a thrilling third period, with Anaheim blowing two leads.

VANCOUVER - Believing that too many games are decided in shootouts, NHL general managers have recommended that at least part of overtimes feature three-on-three play, a format that would have to be approved by the players association. The Flyers seem to favor the new format, which would create wide-open play and reduce the number of shootouts. The Flyers are 3-9 in shootouts this season and an NHL-worst 30-60 since the rule was adopted in 2005-06. "Considering our shootout record, it might help," Flyers coach Craig Berube said Tuesday after the team's morning skate.

THE FLYERS' five Olympians arrived in Russia this morning with their heads held high. They traded in their Flyers equipment bags for ones adorning the familiar Swiss crest or Finnish flag and didn't hear any snickers or jokes. Once the laughingstock of the NHL, firing their coach three games into this season, the Flyers have been impressive. How impressive? If you were to look at their 30-23-6 record and third seed in the Metropolitan Division, you'd say, 'Eh, not that great.

OTTAWA, Ontario - The NHL is kicking around extending overtime from five minutes to as many as 10 minutes, a sentiment that was discussed Tuesday at the general managers meeting in Toronto. "I think they want to let the players play a little bit more than go to shootouts," Flyers captain Claude Giroux said before the game in Ottawa. From a player's standpoint, would it be exhausting to add more time to tied games? "I'm exhausted after 60 minutes," Giroux replied, laughing.

When the Flyers' Ray Emery raced down the ice and assaulted another goalie, Washington's unwilling Braden Holtby, during the Capitals' recent 7-0 victory, he created a firestorm of controversy. NHL general managers will meet in Toronto on Tuesday and they will discuss adding a rule that gives a goalie a 10-game suspension for leaving his area and instigating a fight. Based on comments made by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the league's dean of discipline, Brendan Shanahan, it seems likely that general managers will feel pressure to do something.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Mike Richards says he is a different player today than he was at this time last year, and it has little to do with his production on the ice. It has everything to do with the bone-rattling hit he laid on Florida Panthers forward David Booth on Oct. 24, 2009. As a result of that hit - which was judged to be not worthy of any supplementary discipline by the NHL but kept Booth off the ice for nearly 3 months - and many others, the NHL decided to crack down on blindside hits to the head after last year's annual general managers meetings.
