The New York Rangers took a double shot in the mouth from their Long Island rivals. If they don't win the Atlantic Division, they might feel the sting well into the playoffs. Miroslav Satan scored two goals, and Rick DiPietro made 22 saves in a frantic third period as the visiting New York Islanders knocked off the playoff-bound Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden, 3-2. If that wasn't bad enough, NHL scoring leader Jaromir Jagr was cut by the stick of Islanders forward Shawn Bates and needed stitches in the third period.

Clearly, this was not a journey John Vanbiesbrouck looked forward to making. The Beezer, all 5 foot, 8 inches and 176 pounds of him, is not looking for goaltending's welterweight title, especially at age 35. But he saw his counterpart, Calgary's Jean-Sebastien Giguere, storm out of the crease to grab angry Flyer Roman Vopat, who was looking for someone to fight after some rough stuff had transpired in the corner. Giguere might have been afraid Vopat would do harm to 35-year-old Calgary defenseman Steve Smith, who came out of retirement this season after serving as an assistant coach last year.

If the regular-season game is any indication, this series is going to be a good one. The Flyers used a furious rally and beat the Blackhawks in their only meeting this season, 3-2, on March 13. A deflating loss seemed inevitable before Scott Hartnell scored with just more than 2 minutes remaining to force a tie. Then, in the waning seconds, Claude Giroux calmly hit Chris Pronger with a hockey equivalent of a backdoor pass. The defenseman directed the puck past Chicago goaltender Cristobal Huet and, with 2.1 seconds left, the Wachovia Center erupted.

In the locker room, Simon Gagne's strong play over the past few weeks has created a perception that Gagne will not be leaving the Flyers for three weeks to play for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships in Sweden. The locker room isn't where the decision will be made, though. In the second-floor general manager's office at the Flyers' practice facility, Bob Clarke sees this thing the same way he saw it a couple of weeks ago, when he first brought up the idea. "If we can't do without a 19-year-old centerman for a few weeks, we're in sad shape," Clarke said yesterday.

Eric Lindros probably isn't a big Franz Kafka fan. Asked recently about books he had read recently, the Flyers' captain said he'd been browsing through a calculus text. Lindros said he's always liked math, because there was just one right answer - no interpretations, no shades of meaning. Math also is pretty much devoid of irony. Hmmm. If Lindros wants to survive the 1996 NHL, he'd better forget the math, and start studying something more appropriate, such as Kafka's surreal fables.

Saying that he had grown up with prejudice in Barrie, Ontario, Flyers winger Sandy McCarthy said yesterday that he didn't have to accept the racial slur he said was directed at him by Toronto's Tie Domi on Monday night. "I've had to battle against it and I think I am in a position now where I shouldn't have to accept that," McCarthy said yesterday after the Flyers practiced. "There is no room for it in sports. " McCarthy, providing a euphemistic description, said that Domi had called him a "big effing N" in the second period of Game 3 when the two were mocking each other before a face-off.

There will be no official repercussions - no review of tape, no suspensions, no fines - from the third-period mayhem of Game 2 in the Eastern Conference finals. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and league disciplinarian Brian Burke both attended Sunday's 5-4 Flyers loss to the New York Rangers at the CoreStates Center. Burke dismissed the stick-swinging, tackling and elbowing - none of which was penalized - by telling the New York Post: "It's a man's game out here. " Burke also told the Post that he'd seen nothing to merit suspensions and did not intend to review tapes unless asked.

Is this how it's going to be for the Flyers down the stretch? Eric Lindros single-handedly hoisting them onto his broad shoulders and muscling them through the playoffs? One line dominating the way no other line in hockey can? Playing before his mother and father, as well as his hometown fans, Lindros grabbed a hat trick-plus one last night as the Flyers rallied to beat Toronto, 6-3, at Maple Leaf Gardens. Those four goals, which gave Lindros 27, are a career-high. The hat trick was his first of the season.

It was an unsavory tie against one of the worst clubs in hockey. And to make it all the more unsettling, an undisciplined penalty cost the Flyers a goal and a victory as the New York Islanders came from behind to tie them, 2-2, last night at the First Union Center. It was the ninth time in the last 15 games that the Flyers scored two goals or fewer. They are 0-6-3 in that two-goal scoring stretch. "It's pretty disappointing with the effort tonight, especially coming after the shellacking we took in New Jersey," said Flyers winger Keith Jones.

Frustration has been the hallmark of this Flyers season, at least the last three months of it, and surely, last night was the zenith. It was the pure, perfect crystallization of why the Flyers are closer this morning to ninth place in the Eastern Conference, and missing the playoffs, than to first place. Even strength, the game was no contest. The Flyers blew away the defending Stanley Cup champion New Jersey Devils, keeping them without a shot on net for more than a full period down the stretch.

The emotion and intensity were still evident, in the second game of the Bill Barber coaching era, but the Flyers also showed a few of the flaws that helped get Craig Ramsay fired. A 2-2 tie with the host Nashville Predators was a point gained on the road, against an underrated opponent. But the Flyers had the lead twice, and really, they could have used two points out of this game with a visit to No. 1 overall Colorado on tap tonight and the Devils lurking on Saturday in Philadelphia.

Eric Lindros took the game on his shoulders early, then had to hoist it again in a frantic third period. That wasn't the real story, though, because Lindros knew this game was too big and too slippery to fit across any one set of shoulders, even the league's broadest. The key for the Flyers, the reason why Lindros seems finally freed from the frustration and futility that bound him for two playoff springs, was that Lindros got help from lots of other shoulders - he knew they would be there, and they were.
