Judy Maltz teaches journalism at Pennsylvania State University It's almost a week since we've been back from our camping trip, and I'm still up to my ears in dirty laundry. The fact that the washer and dryer have been operating around the clock doesn't seem to have made a dent in the piles of muddy clothes and wet towels strewn on the basement floor. Seems as if we spend more time packing and unpacking for these trips than we actually spend camping, I remark to my husband as I lug yet another basket of clothes upstairs to be folded.

ROUGHING IT, a surfer takes a ride off the old Central Pier in Atlantic City. The cool, windy weather may have been good for surfers but not for fans of beach and Boardwalk. Today promises more of the same.

If the regular-season game is any indication, this series is going to be a good one. The Flyers used a furious rally and beat the Blackhawks in their only meeting this season, 3-2, on March 13. A deflating loss seemed inevitable before Scott Hartnell scored with just more than 2 minutes remaining to force a tie. Then, in the waning seconds, Claude Giroux calmly hit Chris Pronger with a hockey equivalent of a backdoor pass. The defenseman directed the puck past Chicago goaltender Cristobal Huet and, with 2.1 seconds left, the Wachovia Center erupted.

If you lead with your head, and the quarterback goes down after throwing the ball, you can expect a fine in commissioner Roger Goodell's NFL. Referee Tony Corrente said that was what Eagles corner Sheldon Brown did, late in overtime last Sunday, when Brown launched himself at Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who completed a pass on the play. The 15 yards Corrente added set Cincinnati up for a 47-yard field-goal attempt, which Shayne Graham then missed, ensuring the 13-13 tie. Yet, replays seemed to show Brown making contact with his right shoulder, not his helmet.

While Martin Brodeur kept a close eye on Sean Avery, Henrik Lundqvist focused on a shutout. Avery took everything the visiting New Jersey Devils threw at him in a physical sense, and Lund-qvist turned aside all 38 shots the slumping Atlantic Division leaders fired his way in sending the New York Rangers to a 3-0 victory last night. "I haven't had as many as last year," Lundqvist said of his third shutout of the season. "I'm happy for this one. Guys worked really hard for me. I made up my mind before the third period I wanted this one. "It gives you an extra good feeling to play against the best players in the league," Lundqvist said.

EVGENI MALKIN had five points and a third-period dustup against the Tampa Bay Lightning. And all he wanted to talk about after yesterday's game was the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins' 6-3 win. Malkin had three goals and two assists, and James Neal added two goals for the Penguins, who recovered from a blown three-goal lead. "I didn't think about playing a great game. I know we have two points," Malkin said. Malkin scored twice in a 1-minute, 49-second stretch of the third period to put Pittsburgh ahead 5-3 after the Penguins had squandered a 3-0 lead earlier in the frame.

Zach Eflin reached for his phone last month as the Phillies bus departed Rogers Center and rolled toward Toronto's airport. He had just allowed nine runs in less than three innings. It seemed as if the afternoon - Eflin's major-league debut - could not have gone any worse. But as he sat on the bus, Eflin tweeted that it "was an incredible day. " He thanked his family and friends, writing that "words cannot describe the emotions I felt on the mound. " And that is how Eflin moved on so quickly from a day that could have sent the rookie spiraling down.

DEAR ABBY: After two failed marriages, I married a wonderful man whom I love but am not in love with. He recently had a seizure, after which he was diagnosed with moderate dementia. All I see is a long, dark road ahead. We are senior citizens with not a long time left on this Earth. My health is suffering because of this situation. I am extremely depressed, suffer from panic attacks, and have lost any hope of happiness in the future. I am torn between my responsibility to my husband and leaving to try to find some sort of joy in my life.

DEAR ABBY: I am a grandmother and great-grandmother who is concerned about the behavior of my grandson toward his 7-year-old daughter, "Beth," and her 9-year-old cousin, "Mandy. " When Mandy recently visited me, she told me her uncle crept up behind her, put his hand over her mouth, and then held her nose so she couldn't breathe. She said he has done that to Beth, too. Mandy said he held her like that until she felt faint and then let go, laughing. Apparently, he does this "all in fun," but I see nothing funny about it. What would make someone do something like this?

The Phillies ordered Aaron Nola to stay away from playing catch during the five days leading up to his start on Saturday. They wanted the righthander - who had puzzlingly lost the trademark command of his pitches - to clear his head. It was the equivalent, manager Pete Mackanin said, of telling a slumping hitter to stay out of the batting cages. But a mental respite did not provide the perfect remedy. Nola was tagged for five earned runs, all in the second inning, in a 6-2 loss to Kansas City on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park.

Less than a month ago Aaron Nola was seen as the current and future ace of the Phillies' staff, but that was before the 23-year-old righthander's recent rough stretch. Nola, who takes the mound in Saturday against the defending World Series champion Kansas City Royals, has failed to get through the fourth inning in each of the last four starts. "I hadn't really ever gotten hit around this much ever in my career, but it's going to happen," Nola said before Friday's game against the visiting Royals.

A SEPTA transit police officer caught on a bystander's video throwing a man to the ground June 4 has been investigated and disciplined, but will remain on the force, SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel III said Friday. Matthew Sinkiewicz, who Nestel said has been an officer with the department for about a year, can be seen in the minute-long clip ordering Anthony Barlow to sit down at SEPTA's Frankford Transportation Center. After Barlow verbally declines to sit several times, Sinkiewicz grabs him and forces him to the ground.

In 1967, four black businessmen - real estate broker Al Letson, business owner Maxwell Stanford, motel owner Robert Salsbury, and banker James Blocker - came together to purchase Freeway Golf Course, a sprawling 150-acre property in Sicklerville. An investment of $250,000 made them the first African Americans in the country to own an 18-hole course. In the coming years, it became a model for other black-owned golf courses across the nation and a site for some of the sport's most important competitions, including the first Sammy Davis Jr. Open, now known as the Travelers Insurance Championship.

READING - Wednesday night did not exactly begin the way Vince Velasquez had planned. The Phillies pitcher forgot to retrieve his toll ticket when entering the Pennsylvania Turnpike en route to Reading for a rehab start. He was required upon exiting to pay the maximum fee. Velasquez then allowed a home run to the first batter he faced at double-A Reading's FirstEnergy Stadium. It was a frustrating start, but Velasquez recovered. The righthander gave up just one more hit and threw 76 pitches in five innings of a 4-1 win against Akron.

It was important, Zach Eflin said, to forget his agonizing major-league debut from five days earlier. But the 22-year-old rookie righthander watched video from that afternoon in Toronto when a potent Blue Jays lineup smoked him for nine runs in less than three innings. He found some lessons applied Sunday in a 5-1 loss to Arizona. "I looked at a lot of different things," Eflin said. "I was kind of rushing that day. And I was just really focusing on getting back in my load, and really staying down in the zone, working quick and getting extension.
