It would have been too depressing for Toronto coach Pat Quinn to take a head count of his healthy players before yesterday's practice at the First Union Center. But it wouldn't have taken long. Basically, the Maple Leafs began the first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Flyers Wednesday night a physical mess. Then they grabbed a 5-3 victory in Game 1. It was a victory that was tough for them to savor as they watched Nik Antropov hobble out of their dressing room on crutches, followed closely by a gimpy Darcy Tucker.

Ales Kotalik scored a power-play goal with 4 seconds left in overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 5-4 come-from-behind win over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs last night.

Jason Pominville and Jochen Hecht had a goal and an assist each, and Adam Mair and Thomas Vanek also scored for Buffalo, which won its third straight game.

Phoenix Coyotes general manager Cliff Fletcher said yesterday that the Flyers were out of the Keith Tkachuk sweepstakes for now. As the NHL general managers' meetings in La Quinta, Calif., broke up yesterday, Fletcher said, "As of now, there doesn't seem to be anything possible in a trade between us and Philadelphia before the trade deadline. " He said that if a deal with the Flyers was to be made, it would not happen until the NHL draft in June or during summer free agency.

The Toronto Maple Leafs didn't get much time to celebrate their small winning streak. Within minutes of their 2-1 victory over the visiting New Jersey Devils last night that gave the Maple Leafs consecutive wins for the first time since Nov. 26-28, Toronto found out Jason Allison fractured a finger. And the Maple Leafs could be without Darcy Tucker as well when they try to make it three straight wins tonight in Pittsburgh. The forward got a 5-minute match penalty for ripping the helmet off Cam Janssen in a fight and twice hitting him in the face with it. That will warrant an automatic review from NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell.

The Toronto Maple Leafs face elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs when they take on the Flyers tonight at the Air Canada Centre in Game 6 of a best-of-seven series. They know the feeling well. When they ground their way into the Eastern Conference finals last spring, the Leafs played elimination games in the first and second rounds, both of which went the maximum seven games. In the first round, they beat the New York Islanders, 4-2, in Game 7. In the second round, they knocked off Ottawa, 3-0, in Game 7 after falling behind by three games to two. But both seventh games were played in Toronto.

Thomas Vanek, the league leader in goals, scored the decisive shootout goal and Ryan Miller stopped four of five chances to cap the Buffalo Sabres' come-from-behind, 3-2 victory over visiting Boston last night. Drew Stafford and Clarke MacArthur had scored in regulation in helping Buffalo improve to 5-0-1. After Stafford and Boston's David Krejci traded shootout goals, Vanek scored with a nifty move. Driving to the net, he faked a shot and let the puck float at his skates before beating Manny Fernandez on the glove side.

Dany Heatley scored his second goal of the game 2 minutes, 57 seconds into overtime to give the visiting Ottawa Senators a 4-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, after he agreed to a 6-year, $45-million deal with the Senators 2 hours before the opening faceoff. Heatley, who had tied the game at 3-3 late in the third period, buried a wrist shot from the middle of Toronto's zone between the legs of goaltender Andrew Raycroft for the game-winner. Antoine Vermette and Daniel Alfredsson also scored for the Senators in former Flyer John Paddock's first game as head coach.

Flyers center Mike Richards admits to getting a little extra incentive when playing on Hockey Night in Canada. So it wasn't surprising that the team captain scored two goals - one shorthanded - and played one of his strongest games of the season last night in front of 19,387 fans at the Air Canada Centre and a nationally televised audience in his homeland. But it wasn't enough as the Flyers dropped a 4-2 decision to the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flyers, playing their sixth game in nine nights, suffered their first regulation loss in three weeks.

For the first time this season, the Flyers won when they didn't have a lead heading into the third period. Winger Wayne Simmonds completed his second Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, assist, and fight - in the last three games as he scored on the power play with 11 minutes, 3 seconds left, keying the Flyers' 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. Skating by the crease, Simmonds took a slick backhand pass from Brayden Schenn (two goals) and rammed in his seventh goal of the season.

THE HOCKEY GODS must be peering down from Canada and snickering at Philadelphia. The Flyers, who have desperately fought and clawed for the No. 1 seed and the accompanying home-ice advantage in the first three rounds of the playoffs, have not won in South Philadelphia in nearly a month. The Flyers, who had won 14 straight against lowly Atlanta at one point, have beaten the Thrashers just once in their last eight tries. And for having the third-best goals-for, goals-against ratio in the NHL, the Flyers have outlasted all 29 other teams to be the only one without a shutout to their credit.

The Flyers came close to ending their season-long streak without a shutout by one of their goalies. Yet they found a way to lose at home. Again. Nik Antropov scored with 9 minutes, 38 seconds left to snap a scoreless tie and spark Atlanta to a hard-fought 1-0 win at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. Evander Kane skated behind the goal line, and his pass appeared to bounce off Antropov's skate and past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. The play was reviewed by NHL officials in Toronto, and it was ruled that Antropov did not direct it in with a distinct kicking motion, so the goal was allowed.

Antero Niittymaki says teams are shooting high on him these days. He thinks maybe the Flyers should do the same. "You can only shoot pucks so many times at the crest," the goalie observed. "It won't go through. " His teammates launched a season-high 41 shots at goalie Andrew Raycroft last night at the Air Canada Centre, but came away with only one goal in a 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The critical difference? The Flyers' hideous power play, which is 7 for 87 this season.
