Until Saturday, no one had scored a goal in the Class AA state championship game since 1988. With that in mind, Holy Ghost coach Fran Nick and Quaker Valley coach Gene Klein knew the team that took advantage of its opportunities would win. With 4 minutes, 28 seconds left in the third quarter and the teams knotted in a scoreless tie, Ghost stopper Ken Lawson batted the ball away from the net with his hand, and the Quakers, ranked No. 1 in the...

It took Episcopal Academy 44 minutes, 57 seconds to finally pull even with Malvern Prep last night in a semifinal round of a playoff to determine the Tier II Flyers Cup berth out of the Eastern League. With three seconds remaining, Episcopal was awarded a penalty shot, and Dean Boyd made it to tie the game at 3-3. However, Malvern Prep (11-8-1) needed only 85 seconds of sudden-death overtime to connect for the winning goal and put an end to Episcopal's season. Malvern Prep advanced to the final at a date to be determined.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Trailing by a goal, the Florida Panthers had a five-on-three power play after a double-minor penalty to the Flyers' Max Talbot early in Sunday's third period. It turned out to be the game's turning point, but it an unconventional manner. It was the shorthanded Flyers who benefited, en route to a 3-2 victory over Florida at the BankAtlantic Center. After killing a penalty to Jaromir Jagr, the Flyers were still killing Talbot's high-sticking infraction when rookie Matt Read was pulled down by defenseman Jason Garrison on a shorthanded breakaway.

TAMPA, Fla. - To get a break from hockey, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper spent the night before Thursday's season opener going to the movies to watch The Martian. Thursday, on a more familiar planet, the hockey universe saw the Flyers skate stride for stride with the defending Eastern Conference champion Lightning at sold-out Amalie Arena. But it wasn't enough. Tampa Bay 3, Flyers 2. In overtime. Defenseman Jason Garrison scored on a breakaway with 2 minutes, 43 seconds left in overtime to give Tampa Bay the win. It was his second goal of the game and it ruined the NHL coaching debut of the Flyers' Dave Hakstol.

Outside, the unseasonably hot weather Wednesday made it feel like May, the time of the year when NHL teams are deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Inside, in the Flyers' season opener at the energized Wells Fargo Center, the home team was trying to start the long journey back to those playoffs. Things didn't begin on the right skate. Dave Bolland scored a pair of third-period goals as the Toronto Maple Leafs, ignited by goalie Jonathan Bernier's penalty-shot save late in the second period, gained a 3-1 comeback victory.

East goalie Sam Snyder kept the Cougars in the game, saving eight shots, including a penalty shot in the ninth minute.

The fifth annual Winter Classic had a little of everything - snow, controversy, and a loud, lively crowd. But more than anything else, it will be remembered for its theatrical ending. As a national television audience watched and more than 46,967 chilled fans stood at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, crafty Flyers center Danny Briere skated toward one of the NHL's best goaltenders, the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist, for the third penalty shot of his 14-year career. The game's outcome hung in the balance.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Mike Kirby was pretty sure they had looked at the tape. The Holy Ghost Prep soccer forward knew his team had. If the Lancaster Mennonite Blazers did review the video of the Firebirds' PIAA Class AA state semifinal, they would have seen Kirby take a penalty kick. As the senior forward grabbed the ball and rushed to the penalty spot Saturday, that's what he was thinking. That's what he was hoping. Kirby blew the ball by the keeper, converting the penalty shot and putting his team up by a goal.

After the morning skate Tuesday, Flyers captain Claude Giroux started to answer a question this way: "After we win tonight . . . " Bold words when you consider Tuesday night's opponent, Anaheim, has been one of the NHL's best teams since a horrendous October. The Ducks, perhaps using Giroux's words as motivation, continued their torrid pace as they whipped the Flyers, 4-1, and ruined the home team's 50th anniversary party. "We didn't bring our 'A' game," said right winger Wayne Simmonds after his undisciplined team was guilty of six hooking penalties.

TAMPA, Fla. - Against a team that was unveiling an Eastern Conference championship banner on its home ice to kick off a new season, the horn to end the third period with the game tied had to be a welcoming sound for the Flyers. Escaping Tampa Bay with at least a point against a team projected to head back to the Stanley Cup final seemed like a minor victory in itself. But not to anyone in the Flyers' locker room. "I thought we played strong for 60 minutes of hockey," center Scott Laughton said.

The Flyers inability to generate offense continued. Despite a season-high 37 shots, the Flyers were repeatedly denied in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers (1-4) have now scored just six goals in their five games. Phoenix is 3-2. "It is more difficult to see the guys struggling to score now," said goalie Steve Mason, who played another strong game. "Everybody cares so much and to see the guys not having success we want is difficult to see. " Right now watching the offense is difficult to see as well.

DETROIT - The Chicago Blackhawks extended their season for at least one more game, scoring three goals in the first half of the third period to beat the Detroit Red Wings, 4-3, in Game 6 of their second-round series last night. Bryan Bickell had the go-ahead score early in the third and the NHL's top-seeded team earned a shot to advance to the Western Conference finals after trailing the second round-series by 3-1 and beginning the third period of Game 6 down by a goal. "We're doing the right things to score goals and we're confident when we get those chances that they're going to go in somehow," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said.
