Ray Shero knows the pain felt by his father, Flyers coach Fred Shero, when Buffalo's Gerry Meehan scored on a long shot with four seconds left in the last regular-season game of the 1971-72 season, costing the team a Stanley Cup playoff berth in the elder Shero's first season in Philadelphia. The younger Shero, then a fourth grader, felt the same agony. So did his mother, Mariette, as they watched the game on TV in their rented Bala Cynwyd home. "When the goal went in, she kind of screamed, and her coffee cup went up, and coffee went all over the wall," Shero said the other day. "I cried.

So much for talk that a team as young as the Penguins couldn't advance this far in the Stanley Cup playoffs. So much for the speculation Marian Hossa couldn't score big postseason goals. So much for the New York Rangers, too, whose decided edge in experience meant nothing in a five-game series in which the Penguins' superior talent made the difference. Hossa scored his second goal of the game 7 minutes, 10 seconds into overtime yesterday and the Penguins rallied after giving up a two-goal lead to beat the visiting Rangers, 3-2, and advance to the Eastern Conference final against the Flyers.

Cooke gets harsh penalty; Pens win shootout Oft-penalized Matt Cooke received the stiffest sentence of his 12-season NHL career when the Pittsburgh Penguins' left winger was suspended Monday for the remainder of the regular season, and the first round of the playoffs, for elbowing defenseman Ryan McDonagh of the New York Rangers in the head one day earlier. Pittsburgh has nine regular-season games to play after beating Detroit, 5-4, in a shootout on Monday night. They meet the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday and on March 29 in Pittsburgh.

PITTSBURGH - Sidney Crosby knows the Pittsburgh Penguins will be considered Stanley Cup contenders so long as his familiar No. 87 hangs in the dressing room. "We're always in the conversation as far as favorites," Crosby said. At the moment, a case could be made the Penguins are the only ones in it. Already riding a 13-game winning streak behind the typically sublime Crosby and a suddenly responsible defense, Pittsburgh's quest for the franchise's fourth Cup received a rocket-fueled boost late Wednesday night when general manager Ray Shero acquired six-time All-Star forward Jarome Iginla from Calgary.

That's Crosby, with a C. Sidney Crosby, already the youngest player in NHL history to get 100 points in a season and to win a scoring title, is now the youngest to wear the captain's C on his sweater. The Pittsburgh Penguins gave the 19-year-old Crosby the long-anticipated title yesterday, months after they initially wanted to do so. At the All-Star break in January, general manager Ray Shero asked Crosby if he wanted to take on the responsibility of being a team captain while still a teenager.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero , whose deft handling of the salary cap and midseason hiring of coach Dan Bylsma in 2008-09 helped Pittsburgh win its first Stanley Cup in 17 years, has agreed to a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2015-16 season. Shero's current five-year contract, signed at the start of the 2006-07 season, would have expired at the end of this season. The Penguins have twice played for the Stanley Cup and won it once under Shero, an assistant general manager in the NHL for 14 seasons before being hired by the Penguins.

NEARLY 20,000 people were shoehorned into the Wachovia Center for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals last night, but not all of them were Flyers fans. Sure, most were, but there were a few conspicuous exceptions. Including a pair with strong ties to a couple of the Penguins. Parental bonds, actually. The fathers of center Sidney Crosby and defenseman Ryan Whitney attended the game. And while Troy Crosby often follows the Penguins on the road during the regular season, that isn't the case with Whitney's dad, who was attending his first game in Philadelphia.

He might be at the core of a swirl of anxiety and curiosity, but Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has gone about his summer in a calm, routine manner, operating out of his lakeside house in Nova Scotia. "He's got to be himself," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said Monday. "He's got his home. He's back in Halifax. He's on the water. He does a lot of fishing. He hangs out with his friends. He just turned 24. He wants to be a kid and enjoy himself. "He'll be back here soon enough, and we'll be happy when he gets back.

In the salary-cap world of the NHL, patience is not a virtue. An up-and-coming team can be down and going in a blink when a general manager has to shed players to clear cap space on a bloated payroll. With free agency, players change teams like underwear. So when the Stanley Cup seems within reach, you go for it. Now. Penguins general manager Ray Shero, son of Fred Shero, the only coach ever to mold the Flyers into Stanley Cup champions, considers himself a patient man. But when he took the measure of the Eastern Conference and saw the opportunity to nudge his team to the top of it, he made a move that prompted a fair number of hockey people to wonder if he had momentarily lost hold of his senses.

The Flyers teams that won consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 1975 - and became Fred Shero's ticket to the hockey Hall of Fame - were known for their brawling, menacing style. But it's a disservice to Shero to think that his team's highly successful, intimidating play is why the former coach will be inducted posthumously Monday in Toronto. Yes, the Broad Street Bullies became famous, but it was their genius coach - the bespectacled, studious-looking man who got each player to understand his role to the max - who was perhaps the main reason for the team's dominance.

The contrast only makes it worse. A year ago, the Flyers eliminated their bitter rivals from Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs. The year before, the Flyers went one round further than the Penguins. The year before that, the Flyers went all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. On Thursday, Penguins fans woke up to news that their first-place team had acquired future Hall of Famer Jarome Iginla in a late-night trade. Iginla joined winger Brenden Morrow and defenseman Douglas Murray, brought in as Pens general manager Ray Shero loads up for a run at the Cup. Flyers fans?

EVEN WHEN THERE was evidence of it within the walls of his own house, Ray Shero did not immediately perceive that his son, Chris, had a concussion. That is how hard it is for the average person to detect them, and why the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager has been especially cautious with his superstar, Sidney Crosby, who has battled symptoms of concussions for the better part of two seasons. It happened within just a few weeks after Crosby suffered concussive head blows in games against Washington and Tampa Bay in January 2011, which sidelined him through the Stanley Cup playoffs and caused him to miss significant parts of this season.

BUFFALO - Call it the Philly flu. Or, just call it the Penguins handling Sid the Kid with kid gloves. Either way, Sidney Crosby won't make his first pilgrimage of the season to South Philadelphia. He will miss the next two games as a precaution after being run over by teammate Chris Kunitz in an open-ice collision on Monday night. Crosby missed 68 straight games - from Jan. 5 to Nov. 21 - with postconcussion syndrome. The Flyers won't be complaining. Crosby has torched them for 62 points (26 goals, 36 assists)

Penguins center Sidney Crosby has been cleared to return to Pittsburgh's morning skates on gamedays, but he will not participate in full practices, according to general manager Ray Shero. Crosby, the Penguins' captain who has been out since Jan. 5 with a concussion, was expected to travel with the team to Florida and partake in the morning skate today prior to tonight's game against Tampa Bay. "It's a natural return for his progression here. His rehab has been ongoing," Shero said.
