OF COURSE, the Flyers should do whatever they can to win the Presidents' Trophy. Not because it's the most prestigious regular-season team award in the NHL. Not because the winning team gets a $350,000 bonus for the players to split, although something like that never hurts. Not because it's a trophy the Flyers have never won. Not even because doing so would clinch home ice for the Flyers for as long as they are in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers should do whatever they can to win the trophy awarded to the team with the most regular-season points because doing so would be a natural extension of what they've already done during the first half of the season.

Joe Sakic scored three goals, including the game-winner late in the second period, and the Colorado Avalanche clinched the Presidents' Trophy with a 5-3 victory over visiting Edmonton last night. Colorado assured itself of having the league's best regular-season record and home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. The Avalanche, who lead Detroit by eight points (115-107) with three games remaining for each team, also won the Presidents' Trophy in 1996-97. Sakic, the NHL's second-leading scorer, pushed his goals total to 49 and points total to 112. It was his second hat trick of the season and 11th of his career.

The Dallas Stars, No. 1 overall in the NHL this season, have been through some bad spells, too, just like the Flyers. Let's see here. They've lost as many as - hold on while we look this up - well, two games in succession. And their worst stretch of the season was . . . Hmmm, 2-4-2, just after a 15-game unbeaten streak. Well, OK, may they haven't been much like the Flyers. "The lesson that we've all learned in this process is, the thing that has to stay consistent is your defensive base," Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said before last night's 1-1 tie with the Flyers, for whom he once was an assistant coach.

The bill collectors are not the only ones lined up at the door of the bankrupt Ottawa Senators, the Flyers' opponent when their Eastern Conference semifinal series begins tonight at the Corel Centre. As they point to the Senators' history of failed playoff performances, the followers of the team that represents the capital city of Canada also are looking to collect on a debt. Will this be the spring the Senators make it to hockey's final four for the first time in the club's 11-year history?

Sixteen minutes. That's all the time Peter Forsberg needed to bolster the Colorado Avalanche's hopes of repeating as Stanley Cup champions. Forsberg was expected to be out for four months after surgery to repair tendons in his left foot on Jan. 10. He returned to the ice ahead of schedule yesterday, skating with injured teammate Dan Hinote at Colorado's practice facility. "It's great to be back on the ice - it's been a long time," Forsberg said. "There's been a lot of setbacks this year and I'm just happy to be on the ice again.

On the play that gave Alex Ovechkin his 50th goal, overtaking Sidney Crosby for the NHL lead, Washington Capitals linemate Nicklas Backstrom collected his 100th point of the season with an assist. Ovechkin and Backstrom are the eighth set of teammates to reach those milestones in the same game, and first duo to do it since 1988. So who gets to keep the puck? "We're going to split it," Ovechkin said after his two goals and assist in Washington's 5-2 victory over the visiting Atlanta Thrashers also gave him the league lead with 109 points.

TAMPA, Fla. - Steven Stamkos and Ryan Malone scored 24 seconds apart in the third period, and the streaking Tampa Bay Lightning beat Washington, 4-3, to push the top-seeded Capitals to the brink of elimination in the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday night. After winning twice in Washington, the Lightning returned home and rallied to take a commanding three-games-to-none series lead. Tampa Bay can advance to the conference finals with a victory at home on Wednesday night in Game 4. Vincent Lecavalier and Sean Bergenheim also scored for the fifth-seeded Lightning, whose sixth straight postseason win gave them a commanding lead in the best-of-seven series.

The streets lining Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena are draped with banners celebrating the Penguins' first playoff appearance in 6 years. The Buffalo Sabres gave the home team a reminder of what it takes to win in the postseason. The Sabres clinched the Northeast Division and wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in 27 years, slowing Pittsburgh's rush to the postseason with a 4-1 win last night. In a possible playoff preview, Thomas Vanek scored his 40th and Jason Pominville scored slightly more than a minute later in the third period to put the Sabres up by three in only their fourth victory in Pittsburgh in 10 years.

Tomas Vokoun won't call his first postseason shutout his most satisfying victory. The Nashville goalie will admit he's having lots of fun at the Detroit Red Wings' expense. Vokoun continued his suffocating play by stopping 41 shots and shutting out the Red Wings last night, 3-0, as the Predators evened their first-round series, 2-2. Steve Sullivan, Vladimir Orszagh and Greg Johnson each scored and Dan Hamhuis had two assists. The sixth-year franchise ensured a return visit to Music City for Game 6 on Saturday against the 10-time Stanley Cup winners.

Magnus Arvedson couldn't have asked for a better way to hit a career milestone. He picked up his 200th career point by scoring at 2 minutes, 24 seconds of overtime, and the host Ottawa Senators took over the NHL points lead with a 3-2 win last night over the Dallas Stars. "I should have saved the puck," Arvedson said. "Getting 200 points for a guy who never really scored is pretty good. I was just trying to work hard. I'm pretty satisfied with 200 points. " Heading into the game, the teams were tied in the race for the Presidents' Trophy with 86 points.

The Phoenix Coyotes went through a brutal stretch in the schedule that sent them roughly 125,000 miles across North America in six weeks. They battled injuries, inconsistent stretches, some bad bounces. Oh, yeah, they still don't have an owner yet, either. But when the final horn of the regular season sounded, the Coyotes had closed out what might have been the most impressive of 33 years as an NHL franchise. After so many near misses, a big move from Canada to the desert and an ongoing ownership saga, the Coyotes were division champions for the first time - and, yeah, it was a sweet feeling.

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars got nearly everything they were seeking when the Western Conference finals shifted back to Texas on Monday. The fact that Detroit won, 5-2, suggests that maybe the Stars are looking for something that isn't out there. They got the better scoring chances early, outshooting the Red Wings, 5-0, in the first few minutes. They got the Red Wings to take penalties, giving Dallas a 7-minute edge in power-play time. They won 43 percent of the faceoffs, which may sound awful given that they were at home, but after winning 38 percent and 29 percent in Games 1 and 2, at least the Stars got to play with the puck a little more frequently.

This no-goal got the New York Rangers even with the Buffalo Sabres in more ways than one. Henrik Lundqvist stopped Daniel Briere's shot just short of fully crossing the goal line with 17 seconds left, and the Rangers hung on for a 2-1 victory over the visiting Sabres last night to square the Eastern Conference semifinal series after four games. Both teams had to wait out a lengthy video review for the second straight game. On Sunday, Rangers defenseman Karel Rachunek lost a goal when league officials in Toronto used a replay to determine he kicked the puck in. The game went to double overtime, but a major controversy was avoided when the Rangers eventually won. This time the call went New York's way. "I guess it was really close," Briere said.
