He got squirted, and then he got socked. Chris Falcone, 36, a Havertown concrete worker who mixed it up Thursday night with Tie Domi of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the penalty box at a Flyers game, said it was all a big mistake. Early in the game's third period, Domi was sent to the penalty box for roughing. Falcone, who was seated two rows behind the box, said fans began taunting Domi. The player responded by reaching over the glass partition with a water bottle and spraying the fans.

Tie Domi, the Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer who once plied his trade on, among others, a Flyers fan, retired yesterday. "I love hockey, I love the Toronto Maple Leafs, this is my home," Domi said, his voice cracking with emotion during a packed news conference at the Air Canada Centre. "There were other interests, but I couldn't see myself wearing another jersey other than the blue and white. " Domi said he has taken a job with The Sports Network, Canada's version of ESPN. "I may be leaving the ice, but I'm not leaving hockey," Domi said.

CHICAGO - Before the puck dropped on the regular season, new Flyers general manager Ron Hextall held a meeting with his team. His message, among others, was simple: "Penalties are killing us," Zac Rinaldo recalled. Hextall pointed out the statistics. The Flyers have finished either last or second-to-last in fewest minor penalties in six of the nine seasons since the game changed after the 2004-05 lockout. He even held a meeting with Rinaldo during the offseason to drive home his point.

TAMPA, Fla. - A parade down Broad Street will be a pipe dream if the Flyers' parade to the penalty box perpetuates. The Flyers, far and away the NHL's least disciplined team, found out the hard way with a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of a potent Lightning attack on Sunday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum. Penalties were bound to catch up with them at some point. Tampa Bay scored three times - twice on the power play - in a span of 4:21 in the first period to erase a 1-0 lead Sean Couturier built for the Flyers in the opening minute.

When Montreal's Lyle Odelein clubbed Rod Brind'Amour over the head and Flyers winger Josef Beranek stepped in the scuffle to lend his linemate an ungloved hand, Beranek just assumed he would be assessed the customary five minutes for fighting and headed to the penalty box. There, he swallowed some water from a squeeze bottle, spit between his skates and was quietly cursing to himself when Frank Waters, the home team penalty box attendant at...

Unionville senior Charlie Gerbron is the first ice hockey player in his family, but nobody spent more time in the Philadelphia Flyers' penalty box than his grandfather, Jack Maurer. The Flyers' penalty-box timekeeper for 24 years - from their second year in existence in 1968 until 1991 - Maurer introduced his grandson to the sport when Gerbron was 7. "He always gave us tickets," Gerbron said. "It was great for a 7-year-old kid. I got to go down to the locker room and the press area.

The American Hockey League yesterday announced that Phantoms forward Stefan Ruzicka has been suspended for five regular-season games as a result of his actions during a game at Bridgeport on Wednesday. Ruzicka, the Phantoms' third-leading scorer with 28 points on 11 goals and 17 assists, had an altercation with a Bridgeport player while both were in the penalty box at 18 minutes, 3 seconds of the second period. Ruzicka missed last night's game against visiting Hershey and will miss tonight's game at Bridgeport, Friday's game against Worcester, next Saturday's game at Binghamton, and the Feb. 6 game at Binghamton.

Vancouver Canucks coach Bob McCammon watched from the press box at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday, sitting out the first game of a five-game suspension, as his team lost to the Red Wings, 5-2. The suspension had been imposed by the NHL for an incident that occurred in the Canucks' game against the New York Islanders on Tuesday. In that game, Vancouver's Dave Richter left the penalty box at the end of the second period to engage in a shouting match with New York goalie Billy Smith.

Offensive tackle Eric Moore of the New York Giants, who had visited the Eagles on his free-agent tour, signed yesterday with the Cincinnati Bengals. The offensive line was one of the weak spots on Cincinnati's 3-13 team last season. Moore, 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, has played six seasons for the Giants since he was drafted in the first round from Indiana in 1988. He started five of New York's last seven regular-season games at left tackle, and also started at that position in both of the Giants' playoff games.

This is not a story for anyone with a (obscene adjective) weak heart. It is a story of crime and punishment, of assaults and batterings, of bodily fluids and blood, of aggression and ear-curling language, of knuckles and more blood. It is a story of men who blatantly break rules and pay for their antisocial behavior with time. In case you couldn't guess, it is a (obscene adjective) hockey story. You didn't know that? You (obscene adjective) moron! It is a story about a night in the penalty box. Hockey is the only major sport with a penalty box. It is the adult version of being sent to your room.

None of the Flyers has come down with the mumps, but it's too soon to breathe a sigh of relief. So far, about 20 players on six NHL teams definitely or probably have gotten the viral illness, despite a flurry of vaccinations throughout the league. Among those afflicted is the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby, the league's most valuable player, who tested positive for the disease Dec. 13. The Flyers have played three affected teams - the New York Rangers, Anaheim Ducks, and New Jersey Devils - within the incubation period of 16 to 18 days.

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. - Saturday was almost a frustrating night of close calls and near misses for the Union. The normally potent offense could not take advantage of several chances in the first half and allowed a defensive miscue in the second half, but a late penalty kick by Sebastien Le Toux allowed them to escape with a 1-1 draw. Le Toux drilled home a penalty kick past Chicago goalie Sean Johnson in stoppage time after Fire defender Gonzalo Segares was called for a handball in the box. Le Toux scored his team-leading eighth goal of the year.

NEW YORK - This was not how Jason Akeson had envisioned his Stanley Cup debut would end up - in frustration. He was the center of attention, drew his share of reporters, and while painful, he went through the play that turned around the Flyers' opening playoff game in a negative way. Akeson's third-period double minor for high sticking led to two power play goals as the New York Rangers opened their first-round series with a 4-1 win over the Flyers...

UNIONDALE, N.Y - The Flyers' penchant for third-period comebacks has masked the fact that they have been playing without discipline. On Monday afternoon, it cost them at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The New York Islanders took advantage of two third-period power plays to overcome a 3-1 deficit and rally past the Flyers, 4-3, in a shootout. It was just the seventh win for the Isles against the Flyers in the last 40 meetings between the teams. Kyle Okposo scored the game-winner in the fourth round of the shootout.

Parent, 67, made an appearance before signing his recently released book, Unmasked: Bernie Parent and the Broad Street Bullies, which he wrote with Stan Hochman.

THE CITY OF Clearwater plans to roll out the red carpet today for . . . the Phillie Phanatic. Mayor George N. Creketos will give the cuddly green monster a key to the city, 10:30 this morning at Pier 60, culminating a whirlwind weekend tour in Phillies baseball heaven. Yesterday, the Phanatic made stops at famed breakfast spot Lenny's, took a stroll down the beach, took a ride on the Jolly Trolley and - if you can picture it - rode a segway down Mandalay Avenue. Before accepting the key, the Phanatic will make a stop at the Marine Museum at 9 a.m. to visit "Winter," the famous Dolphin without a flipper and star of the Disney movie "Dolphin Tale.

Jason Chimera scored a shorthanded goal 2 minutes, 27 seconds into the third period and Marcus Johansson added an insurance tally eight minutes later, leading the visiting Washington Capitals to a 3-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils Friday night. The Capitals (10-4) snapped a two-game losing streak and broke a three-game winning run for the Devils (7-6-1). The teams will meet again Saturday night in Washington, and the Capitals will be looking for their sixth win in seven games over New Jersey.
