Eric Bertrand's overtime goal lifted the Phantoms to a 5-4 win last night over the Hershey Bears in an American Hockey League game at the First Union Spectrum. Serge Aubin, the league's top scorer, had a hat trick for the Bears, but the Phantoms rallied in front of a sellout crowd of 17,380 for their sixth consecutive victory. The Phantoms' net was empty when Andy Delmore scored with one minute remaining in regulation to tie it, 4-4. Bertrand scored 2 minutes, 15 seconds into OT. After controlling play for most of the first two periods, the Phantoms had only a one-goal lead.

John Slaney scored on the only shot in overtime to lift the Phantoms past Milwaukee, 4-3, yesterday in front of the AHL's biggest crowd of the season. The Phantoms came from behind to force overtime for the second straight game in front of 15,603 at the Wachovia Center. The Phantoms trailed three times in the game until defenseman Kirk Furey evened the score at 3-3 with seven minutes to go in the third period. Just six seconds after Milwaukee's Greg Classen was sent off for cross-checking, Kirby Law and Peter White worked the puck to Furey, who launched a long slapshot over the shoulder of Admirals goaltender Wade Flaherty.

The Spirit (12-2) had a chance to win the game with four seconds remaining, but Michael Anderson missed the first of two foul shots.

Coach Kaitlyn Battiste had been saying it to her Pennsbury girls' soccer team throughout the first half. Assistant coach Kim Voorhees mentioned it, too. At halftime, the officials even got in on the topic of conversation. "There haven't been many shots," one referee said to the other. "You're right," was the reply. "And you can't score if you don't shoot. " For the first 40 minutes Thursday, the Falcons weren't shooting. Possessing? Yes. Passing? Yes. But shooting was another thing entirely as Pennsbury put only two shots on goal at the break.

Sometimes all it takes is a look. Quality defense helps, too. La Salle High had it all working Wednesday in a boys' lacrosse thriller against Bishop Shanahan. The PIAA first-round playoff game at Plymouth Whitemarsh needed extra time to decide a winner. Fortunately for the Catholic League champion Explorers, Brett Baskin netted the game-winner with 2 minutes, 29 seconds left in overtime to give La Salle an 8-7 victory. The goal was set up by a defensive deflection by senior long-pole Matt Webster, which allowed fellow senior Jared Walls to scoop the loose ball, find Baskin, and head for glory.

Chris Cloutier's heart sank. His potential championship-winning shot was stuffed in the crease. So before he shot a second time, Cloutier was nervous. The North Carolina attack shot again anyway and wouldn't be denied twice. The ball got by Maryland goalie Kyle Bernlohr and the game that repeatedly seemed out of the Tar Heels' reach was firmly in their grasp, the same way the NCAA men's lacrosse championship trophy was after a 14-13 overtime win Monday at Lincoln Financial Field.

By Aparna Mathur The new overtime rule announced by President Obama last week extends overtime pay protections to more than four million workers by raising the salary threshold to $47,476. The intent of the rule is to boost wages for low- and middle-income workers by requiring that employers provide additional compensation for every hour worked beyond the traditional full-time, 40-hour workweek. However, economic theory suggests that employers may respond to this new rule by cutting employees' hours or even their base pay rates in order to keep their costs from increasing.

It was as if the disappointments of years passed echoed in the air Wednesday night after Central Bucks West senior Will Ross ripped a shot that pinged off the post in double overtime against rival Central Bucks East. Less than two minutes later, however, Ross, who had continually watched his older brother Jake lose to the Patriots, heard only the raucous screams of his teammates after he whipped the game-winning goal. "Biggest game any of us have played our whole lives," Ross said, tears still fresh in his eyes.

On this day, the basketball game was far from important. The 76ers introduced Bryan Colangelo as their new president of basketball operations Sunday before their matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center. At the conclusion of the first quarter, the Sixers honored Philadelphia native and retiring NBA referee Joey Crawford. Allen Iverson was presented with an honorary resolution from the city at halftime. And the NCAA champion Villanova basketball team was honored at the end of the third quarter.

It wasn't the result the Flyers wanted or needed, but they were able to scramble to earn one point when none seemed likely Thursday in their 4-3 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers still control their playoff fate. If they win their next two games, Saturday at home against Pittsburgh and Sunday at the New York Islanders, they will clinch a spot, regardless of what other teams do. "The point is huge, but it would be better if we had two," said winger Jake Voracek, summing up the feeling of the Flyers.

 Less than 24 hours after a disheartening showdown defeat in Detroit, the Flyers lost to the NHL's worst team Thursday and damaged their playoff hopes.  Toronto 4, Flyers 3.  In overtime.  Jake Gardiner scored on a power-play blast with 2 minutes, 9 seconds left to give the Maple Leafs the win.  The Flyers suffered their third straight loss and their playoff chances took a hit - after the team entered the week in the driver's seat.  The Flyers had a second-period goal negated because of incidental contact, ruled because a sliding Claude Giroux brushed into goalie Jonathan Bernier.

With the final frantic seconds in overtime disappearing Monday and the Flyers in the offensive zone, rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere made a play for the ages, diving and poking the puck away from center Mark Scheifele - who would have had a three-on-one the other way - and then popping to his feet and tapping a pass to an all-alone Claude Giroux. Giroux, who was injured late in the previous game, fired a shot off goalie Ondrej Pavelec's left arm and into the net with 13.6 seconds left at the joy-struck Wells Fargo Center.
