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.
