The French word is depaysement, and, although it really doesn't translate, it could mean "going to a foreign place without really going all that far. " The best way to understand it is to visit the Canadian city of Quebec, the only walled city in North America. Quebec is as European as Europe, as foreign as France, but the currency is dollars, there's always someone around to comfort you in English, and you can watch football on TV and it won't be soccer. Also, you can drive there.

Those little-town blues were getting them down. A day after blowing a two-goal lead in the final 23 seconds at Quebec City for a tie that felt like a loss, the Flyers took Manhattan, with a snarl and an upraised fist. Maybe they figured that if they could make it here - in front of Madison Square Garden's slobbering maniacs, against the Patrick Division's first-place team - they could make it anywhere. In any case, the Flyers left New York late last night only a point behind the Rangers after their suffocating penalty-killing produced a solid 4-2 victory.

They tried hard to stop me from going to Quebec City that winter, they really did. They said I was crazy to go. They said I might die up there, or even lose my hair. But what did they know about Quebec City in the winter? They didn't know I could ski Christmas week there with no lift lines. Or ride a dogsled. Or walk arm-in-arm down a quiet street plucked straight from Europe. They didn't know I could stay in Chateau Frontenac, one of the top hotels in North America, for less than a room in the Poconos.

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.

Neil Little stopped 37 shots and Jesse Boulerice scored his first goal of the season as the Phantoms shut out the Quebec Citadelles, 2-0, in an American Hockey League game last night at the Colisee in Quebec. Kirby Law scored just 2 minutes, 40 seconds into the game to give Little all the support he needed on a night when the Phantoms produced a franchise-record low of just 14 shots on goal. On Law's goal, Francis Bouillon turned over the puck in the Quebec zone, and Derek Plante chipped the puck ahead to Michel Picard.

THE TWO lasting memories of being a Flyer, in Simon Gagne's mind, are pretty fitting ones, mostly because of the way they bookend his significant time in Philadelphia. The first, he told reporters on a conference call Friday, was his rookie season. The 1999-2000 season, a year after the Flyers selected the Quebec native 22nd overall, saw the Flyers fall one game short of reaching the Stanley Cup Final. But Gagne scored 20 goals and tallied 28 assists that season, turning 20 in February.

Philadelphia, teetering on the edge of the world stage, wants a leading role. Enter the Global Philadelphia Association. GPA, in conjunction with Mayor Nutter's administration, is pressing the city's case that it should be added to the list of World Heritage Cities, a designation seen as a further boost to Philadelphia as an attraction for international tourists. The city's efforts secured a visit last week from Denis Ricard, secretary general of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC)

MONTREAL - Just as the sun crackled over the Mount Royal summit yesterday, throngs of people made their usual weekend pilgrimage downtown. The route and ritual was familiar, if not the time of day. Fans clad in red and white streamed past Bell Centre, hockey's current cathedral, and packed bars - before liquor was even allowed to be served - to share in the camaraderie of this country's golden hockey generation. When the final horn sounded in Sochi and all of Canada erupted, the bright lights were once again shining on former Flyers forward Simon Gagne.

THE FIRST QUESTION Petr Straka gets is usually about his name. Anyone following hockey in the 1990s will remember the name Martin Straka, a former All-Star who racked up 717 points in his career. Petr Straka has the same last name - and shares the same hometown of Plzen, Czech Republic, the birthplace of pilsner beers. But the two have no relation. After signing a 3-year entry-level deal with the Flyers in April, prospect Petr Straka is trying to make a name for himself at hockey's highest level.

BOSTON - Simon Gagne is homeless. Well, not literally. After returning to the Flyers via trade on Feb. 26, Gagne decided to rent a house in South Jersey close to the team's practice facility. His lease expired June 1. So, Gagne packed up his family and moved back home to Quebec City for the summer, where he's waiting to hear where he'll land next. Gagne, 33, hopes it's with the Flyers. But he also hoped to be re-signed by this point in the summer, too. That can't happen, of course, because of the same reason the Flyers' deal with defenseman Mark Streit hasn't been officially announced: The Flyers do not currently have any available salary-cap space.

QUEBEC CITY - A boxing match is a stand-alone event, but it also is like chess in that every move made influences the next. And tonight's Showtime-televised pairing of WBC and Ring magazine light-heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and longtime former middleweight titlist Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins is no different. The 28-year-old Pascal (26-1-0, 16 KOs) hopes to use a victory over Hopkins as a springboard to greater renown, in his home province of Quebec, in all of Canada, and even internationally.
