The Quebec Nordiques came into the Spectrum having given up more goals than any team in the NHL. Since Chicago, at last glance, still was in the league, this seemed an awfully hard thing to do. On the contrary, the Nordiques showed just how quick and painless true defensive incompetence can be. The Flyers last night scored five goals faster than you can dot all the eyes in Iiro Jarvi, then had all the time in the world to cross all the...

The Quebec Nordiques, already the NHL's second-highest scoring team, got an unexpected gift from Uwe Krupp. Krupp, a 6-foot-6 defenseman who had 47 goals in eight NHL seasons coming into this year, recorded his first hat trick and added an assist last night, pacing Quebec to an easy 8-2 victory over the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning. Krupp, acquired from the Islanders in the offseason for his size and solid defensive ability, became the second defenseman in the Nordiques' 16-year history to record a hat trick.

Eric madness, Phase 2. The scramble for Eric Lindros, franchise heartthrob, has entered a more serious stage. Or maybe just a goofier stage. The Quebec Nordiques are now responding to clubs that have been tendering offers for Lindros, the No. 1 draft pick of 1991. But that does not necessarily mean a deal for the 19-year-old junior superstar is imminent. General managers Russ Farwell of the Flyers and Bryan Murray of the Detroit Red Wings both said yesterday they had spoken with Nordiques officials in the last few days.

Return of the Nords? The mayor of Quebec City has spoken with the NHL about the possible return of the Nordiques to the league. Mayor Regis Labeaume said yesterday that he met with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, along with former Nordiques owner Marcel Aubut. The mayor added that the talks in New York on Friday were "very profitable, very worthwhile. " Bettman said this month he would consider Quebec City as a possible home for an NHL team if it followed through on plans to build an arena and if a team was for sale.

Eric Lindros and his agent, Rick Curran, are expected to testify today as the Lindros arbitration hearing enters its fourth day at a Montreal hotel. Lindros and Curran could be key figures in the proceeding, which is being held to settle competing trade claims by the Flyers and the New York Rangers. Both teams believe they completed deals with Quebec for the rights to Lindros in the hours leading up to the NHL's Saturday entry draft in Montreal. Curran refused comment yesterday and Lindros has been unavailable for comment since the dispute arose.

Encircled by pads and pens and the bright lights of television cameras, Craig MacTavish was preaching education after the Flyers eliminated Buffalo yesterday. The playoffs, he said, are about learning poise, and then practicing it. "You have to do it on the ice," he said. "A lot is made of experience, and maybe too much is made of experience. Experience boils down to patience and discipline. That's what playoff hockey is all about. " A 12-stitch gash ran down his brow, glowing eerily under the camera lights like a horror-movie special effect.

The Quebec Nordiques wanted to strengthen their hold on first place in the NHL's Northeast Division, but waited until the last minute to do it. Alexei Gusarov scored with 58 seconds left in the third period as the visiting Nordiques beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-4, last night. The Nordiques survived losing a 4-2 lead to improve their NHL-best point total to 35, three better than Pittsburgh. The Penguins had beaten the Nordiques in the two previous meetings. They won last Tuesday's game in Quebec, 7-5, with seven goals in the second period.

THE DEATH of Jerome Brown 20 years ago today was a devastating loss in the middle of a unique time in Philadelphia sports involving star athletes. On June 20, the Flyers acquired the rights to Eric Lindros in a blockbuster trade with Quebec. The Flyers sent Ron Hextall, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Chris Simon, first-round picks in the 1993 and 1994 NHL drafts and $15 million to the Nordiques. The deal led to a hearing within days involving the Flyers, Nordiques and Rangers.

Who is Eric Lindros, and is he really worth all this aggravation. Even sports fans who wouldn't know a blue line from a fishing line have heard of Lindros, especially after a bizarre weekend that produced headlines reading "Lindros traded to Flyers and Rangers. " Only in the NHL could this happen, eh? Hockey scouts swear on their numb fingers that the 6-5, 225-pound center is the next Mario Lemieux. Get Lindros, the scouts say, and your team is guaranteed a Stanley Cup. Lindros is a franchise-maker.

Death and taxes are even more inevitable in Quebec City, if only because Anglophone hockey players don't regard playing for the Nordiques as really living. Because of the exchange rate, 20 percent comes off the top of their paychecks, and Revenue Canada deals about 65 percent off the bottom. The wife gets all the rest. She probably deserves it, for having to live in a place where she can't understand anyone. Terry Carkner didn't have a wife, however. And he endured rather gladly the problems that more often than not bring English-speaking Nordiques to their knees begging to get out. "It wasn't that bad," Carkner said, "especially after playing in New York.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. The Flyers had always seemed to play well in Colorado but never well enough to win. Last night at the Pepsi Center, however, the Flyers changed that with a 5-2 victory. They had been 0-2-4 in Denver since 1995-96, when the Quebec Nordiques moved and became the Avalanche. The victory improved the Flyers' record on this five-game road trip to 2-1. They will travel to Vancouver today for a New Year's Eve bash with the Canucks.

So you've got the National Hockey League all figured out this season. You think the Detroit Red Wings will benefit from the crackdown on obstruction fouls and finally win their first Stanley Cup since 1955. You predict that the Hartford Whalers will finally make the playoffs after a three-season drought. And you're positive the New Jersey Devils will be unable to duplicate last season's mastery of the neutral-zone trap and will stumble in the playoffs. Well, think again.

The Quebec Nordiques, an NHL franchise since 1979 and the second-best team in the league during the regular season this year, were sold yesterday to COMSAT Entertainment Group and will be moved to Denver for next season. The sale, which marks the return of an NHL franchise to the Mile High City, is likely to be approved by NHL owners on June 21. Denver lost the Colorado Rockies to New Jersey in 1982. "We think the NHL is going to be great in Denver," Charlie Lyons, president of COMSAT, said yesterday in a telephone conference call from company headquarters in Bethesda, Md. "The Rocky Mountain region is really becoming sort of the center of the universe, and we think our fan base will be considerable.

The desperate Quebec Nordiques needed confidence and they grabbed some from the Stanley Cup champion New York Rangers. Mike Ricci, Wendel Clark and Chris Simon each got his first goal of the series as the Nordiques stayed alive with a 4-2 playoff victory over the visiting Rangers yesterday. "We had to win or there would be no more hockey," said Quebec veteran Wendel Clark, whose team trails the Rangers, 3-2, in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Game 6 is tomorrow night in New York.

Their championship crown was jostled by the hard hits of the desperate, determined Quebec Nordiques and their bearded dive-bomber, Wendel Clark. And as the game wore on, their legs at times showed signs of age. Still, the New York Rangers displayed some of the lessons in fortitude they had learned during their exhilarating Stanley Cup run of a year ago, and held on for a 4-3 victory over the Nordiques last night at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers took a two-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven, first-round Eastern Conference series.
