What a difference a nonleague game makes for Bishop McDevitt. "It was unbelievable," Lancers assistant coach Brian Duross said. "The guys were smiling at the foul line and joking around on the bench. We were so loose nothing bothered us. I hope we play that way Friday against North Catholic. " Losers of five previous Catholic League Northern Divison games, McDevitt (4-12) found a way to win Monday's nonleaguer, although it took four overtimes. Led by three double-digit scorers, the Lancers defeated Germantown Academy (7-6)

Ryan Potulny scored 2:58 into the fifth overtime as the Phantoms defeated the Albany River Rats last night, 3-2, to take a 3-2 lead in the AHL's best-of-seven Eastern Division semifinals. At 142 minutes and 58 seconds, it was the longest game in Phantoms history, eclipsing 113:02 in Game 4 of the 2004 East Division semifinals against Norfolk. It was also the longest in league history, beating out Hamilton's win over Houston in the 2003 Calder Cup finals that lasted 134.56. The game, which lasted 4 hours and 38 minutes, was reminiscent of the Flyers' 2-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 4 of the 2000 Eastern Conference semifinals, which went five overtimes.

The puck was hanging in the air like a beach ball, and Stephane Richer had just enough left. Adam Graves was nearby, but the rest of the New York Rangers were off somewhere else, apparently pinching too tightly at the other end. So Richer took matters into his own hands. The right winger for the New Jersey Devils gathered up the puck, charged down the left side of the rink and swatted a shot past Rangers goalie Mike Richter. That heads-up play, which came at 15 minutes, 23 seconds of the second overtime last night, gave the Devils a 4-3 victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals and a head full of steam for tomorrow night's Game 2 here at Madison Square Garden.

Goalie Pietro Berghella's punch gave Germantown Friends a chance on Thursday. A.J. Mowafi's kick provided the knockout blow.

Two shooters later, Mowafi left-footed it past the goalie to complete a perfect round of PKs, and the 10th-seeded Tigers advanced, 5-3, in the first round of the PAISAA state boys' soccer tournament.
