The Quebec Citadelles broke a 1-1 tie in the second period when defenseman Miloslav Guren beat Phantoms goaltender Neil Little, then held on for a 3-1 victory at the First Union Spectrum last night. Xavier Delisle added an empty-net goal with three seconds left. The Citadelles took a 1-0 lead in the first period when Marc Beaucage scored his 17th goal of the season. But the Phantoms evened it late in the period on a power-play goal by Tomas Divisek. Little finished with 20 saves.

Tonight, finally, Eric Lindros will play an NHL game in the city of Quebec. A year ago, that would have been a joyous occasion, the cause of celebrations big enough to shake the old stone walls that jut out over the St. Lawrence River. Back then, people in Quebec still held out hope that Lindros would put on the blue jersey with the fleur-de-lis that he so self-consciously stuffed under his arm after the Nordiques made him the first player chosen in the 1991 entry draft. Lindros never wore that jersey.

For Ron Hextall, Kerry Huffman and Mike Ricci, the last few years with the Flyers weren't much fun. They played for a plodding, low-scoring team that didn't make the playoffs and didn't generate much excitement. Some NHL players think of being sent to tiny, French-speaking Quebec as some sort of exile, but it hasn't been that way for Hextall, Huffman and Ricci; well past the halfway point of the season, they're playing for a team that wins much more often than it loses (28-16-7)

New York state and the province of Quebec have agreed to work on a joint bid to host a Winter Olympics. New York Gov. George Pataki announced the agreement yesterday to a joint session of the state Legislature. Which Olympics New York and Quebec will try to attract has yet to be determined. Venues around Lake Placid, site of the 1932 and '80 Winter Games, would be used, as would those near Montreal, officials said. Lake Placid and Montreal are about 140 miles apart. New York City is the United States' official candidate to host the 2012 Summer Olympics.

They skate atop polished metal blades and shave the ice, swinging their taped-up sticks and throwing their plastic-shielded arms into the air as the puck skids and sputters into the net. Just like the big boys of the National Hockey League. Only these big boys of Team Philadelphia still have bedtimes - and complete sets of their original teeth. This morning in King of Prussia, 19 of the area's top 13- and 14-year-old players, with backpacks, birth certificates and pillows in tow, will board a charter bus bound for the 38th annual Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament in hopes of winning their version of the Stanley Cup. They will open the 10-day tournament, which attracts more than 150,000 spectators and 110 teams, tomorrow against a team from Edmonton, Alberta.

Dominic Roussel has spent the first three games of Ron Hextall's six-game suspension watching Ken Wregget play goal, but Flyers coach Paul Holmgren says that probably will change, either Thursday at the Spectrum against Quebec or Saturday against visiting Montreal. Even though Wregget played well in Sunday's victory over New Jersey, Holmgren wants to use the suspension to get a better look at the rookie some people in the organization feel is the Flyers' goalie of the future. Roussel, 21, turned pro last season and spent the year at Hershey, where he was 20-14-7 with a 3.61 goals-against average.

The explorer whose journey becomes one of self-discovery is hardly unknown terrain in movies. Nor, for that matter, are politically correct outcries against the history of European expansion and resulting defilement of native cultures. But with the 500th anniversary of Columbus' arrival in the New World looming, and the widespread argument over whether the occasion should be celebrated with red, white and blue bunting or guiltily marked with sackcloth and ashes, now is an apt time for further exploration of these rich themes.

Do my ears deceive me, or can I actually hear the sounds of worms turning? You say a turning worm makes no sound? Maybe not. But how about a chorus of turning worms? That's what's happening these days. Not long ago, for instance, some Russian reformer said that what the people really wanted was democracy and freedom and "Reaganism. " Reaganism! In Moscow, the world headquarters for gray bureaucrats and watery soup, the forces of enlightenment and progress are yearning for Reaganism!

Craig MacTavish, his scarred, weathered face reflecting both the wars of 164 Stanley Cup playoff games and the joy of performing for four Cup winners, was discussing the wild, white-knuckle ride he and the New York Rangers took to the NHL championship last spring. While recalling the Rangers' 3-2 victory over Vancouver in Game 7 of the finals at Madison Square Garden, MacTavish was nudged by the burly man sitting next to him in the Flyers' dressing room. Shawn Antoski had heard enough.

Hello there Miriam met Morton at her family's vacation home in Canada's Laurentian Mountains in the summer of 1933. Several years before, while visiting her Aunt Bea in Philadelphia, Miriam's oldest sister, Dorothy, had met Morton's older brother, Harry. They had been writing letters, and Harry had traveled to the mountains of Quebec to see Dorothy again. Morton came with him. "Right away, I knew he was meant for me," Miriam said of Morton. Morton did not know this.

QUEBEC - The happy group of 15 came pouring around the bend; men and women, some young, some older, dressed in boots, hats, gloves - and bathing suits. Walking single file through the snow, they approached a small mound and were greeted by the famous master of ceremonies, Bonhomme, as Quebec City's annual Winter Carnival's Snow Bath officially opened. The huge audience, suitably dressed for the minus-4-degree C weather, began taunting and laughing at the would-be "snow bathers. " Playful snowballs immediately began to fly between the audience, participants, and even Bonhomme.

Benoit Richard said Monday eight more bodies had been found in the wreckage, after conditions improved enough for inspectors to get better access to the charred site two days after the disaster. Police would not say where the bodies were located for fear of upsetting families.

DERBY LINE, VT. - A minivan with California license plates and a dozen passengers zipped across the border between Vermont and Quebec in October, heading north in a southbound lane unblocked by traffic. Border agents could only watch as the Dodge Caravan sped off into Quebec. But the vehicle and its occupants didn't try to disappear. About 22 miles later, they stopped in a Walmart parking lot in Magog, Quebec, and asked someone to call the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. After the Mounties arrived, the Gypsies in the vehicle applied for political asylum.

NEW YORK - As hockey prepared for its first work stoppage since the 2004-05 season was wiped out, the NHL Players Association planned to challenge a lockout before labor boards in Quebec and Alberta. The moves, if successful, could force teams to pay players on the Montreal Canadiens, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers during a work stoppage. The sport's labor contract expires at midnight Saturday night, and a lockout appears certain. It would be the league's fourth work stoppage since 1992.
