The Buffalo Sabres yesterday traded defenseman Cale Johansson to the Washington Capitals for goalie Clint Malarchuk and defenseman Grant Ledyard. The teams also will exchange undisclosed draft choices. Malarchuk spent five seasons with the Quebec Nordiques before being traded to Washington in 1987. Last season, he played in 54 games and compiled a 3.16 goals-against average. Ledyard had four goals and three assists in 21 games. Johansson, a native of Sweden, played in 71 games with the Sabres last season, collecting 42 points.

The Buffalo Sabres offered Dominik Hasek a long-term contract that would make the Olympic gold medalist the NHL's highest-paid goaltender. Hasek is being offered between $7.5 million and $8.5 million a season, starting with the 1998-99 season, people familiar with the negotiations told Bloomberg News. The contract would replace the $4 million he was scheduled to make after the Sabres exercised an option on his current contract. "We are encouraged by the team's offer," said agent Rich Winter.

Few will fess up, but every team in this mad dash to the Stanley Cup had a favorite first-round foe. The Rangers wanted the untested Flyers. The Flyers would have liked the Capitals, dreaded the possibility of the Rangers, and will take the Sabres as a consolation. The Sabres got what they wanted. At least they got what Dominik Hasek, their standout goaltender, wanted. And that's really all that matters. For without him, the only request these guys would be making right now is for a tee time.

Maybe what Dominik Hasek and Buffalo needed in the last couple of weeks were more divisional games. The Dominator made 33 saves, while Brian Holzinger and Curtis Brown added offensive support with goals, as the Sabres defeated visiting Boston last night, 2-1, in a Northeast Division matchup. Buffalo, playing its first division contest since a 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa Dec. 30, snapped a four-game winless streak (0-3-1) and inched closer in the division race. The Sabres' 50 points are just one behind division co-leaders Toronto and Ottawa.

The Buffalo Sabres are still without a victory and goaltender Dominik Hasek is without a starting job - at least for now. The 0-5-2 Sabres sent their struggling goaltender to the bench after one period in a loss to Nashville and have decided to leave him there a while. Third-string goalie Martin Biron will start against Carolina tonight as the desperate Sabres try to stave off the worst start in team history. How long Hasek remains idle depends on 22-year-old Biron. "If Marty plays unbelievable and wins games, he's going to play," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said yesterday.

The Buffalo Sabres were more than a bit miffed after their Game 2 Stanley Cup finals loss to Dallas, and not just because the Sabres had come infuriatingly close to taking a commanding 2-0 series lead. The Sabres were concerned about the half-dozen or so times Dallas players made contact with Buffalo goalie Dominik Hasek during the Stars' 4-2 series-evening victory. Everybody on both sides undertands Hasek, the NHL's two-time defending MVP, is the key player in this series.

Disappointed in letting the Sabres off the hook once, Ray Emery and the Ottawa Senators arrived in Buffalo yesterday confident they won't let that happen again. "Not to take anything away from them, they had their backs against the wall and performed," the Senators goaltender said. "But we still believe we control our own destiny. And if we play our game, we're a very tough team to beat, and we'll win more often than not. " The Senators, with a 3-1 lead on the Sabres in the Eastern Conference finals, will get their second crack at clinching their first Stanley Cup finals berth in Game 5 at Buffalo this afternoon.

The Buffalo Sabres filed for bankruptcy protection yesterday, becoming the second NHL team in a week to seek relief from creditors. Commissioner Gary Bettman said the Chapter 11 filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Buffalo is a step toward resolving the financial problems that put the Sabres under league control in June. The team is for sale, and the filing could be a step toward a possible move. "It will enable the Sabres to secure financing that will allow them to continue to operate in the ordinary course, subject to league supervision, while the sale process is completed," said Bettman, who addressed Sabres employees and the media.

The only thing we can really say for sure is that this alley fight of a Stanley Cup final series isn't over. The Buffalo Sabres are down, 3-2, to the Dallas Stars, but they're headed home to Marine Midland Arena for tonight's Game 6. They are 8-1 at home in the playoffs, their only loss there coming a week ago in Game 3 of this series. "We're pretty positive," Sabres captain Michael Peca said after a gut-wrenching 2-0 loss Thursday in Dallas. "We just fell a couple of bounces s short.

It was happening to Dominik Hasek again. The Buffalo Sabres had lost three successive playoff games, and somehow, in Buffalo, it was all Hasek's fault, just as it had been a year earlier, when Hasek exited the playoffs with a knee injury and the Sabres soon followed. A column in yesterday's Buffalo News referred to "a now obvious lack of mental toughness" on the part of the NHL's reigning most valuable player, who almost certainly will win that award again this season. So Hasek skated onto the hostile MCI Center ice last night needing to prove something, and never mind that he'd stolen the gold medal for the Czech Republic in the Nagano Olympics, or that he'd led a team that lacks even a 25-goal scorer into the Stanley Cup semifinals, where the Sabres had last ventured in 1980.

The Flyers' offense, sleepy for most of the season, awakened Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center, and the surge was triggered by - surprise, surprise - R.J. Umberger. But the veteran winger had company as the Flyers routed the Buffalo Sabres, 5-1, and moved to within four points of a wild-card spot. The Flyers erupted for four second-period goals - including Umberger's first tally in nearly 13 months - as they ended a three-game losing streak. The four goals were the most by the Flyers in any period this season.

BUFFALO - A Flyers season that started so promisingly - including wins over Stanley Cup champion Chicago and the powerful Rangers - has hit a roadblock. A new-look lineup made no difference Friday as the Flyers dropped their third straight, falling to Buffalo, 3-1, before a Halloween-themed crowd at the First Niagara Center. "As a team, we were slower. We were second on the puck, and that's why we took so many penalties," right winger Jake Voracek said. "We got outplayed. " "We haven't been able to get into any kind of rhythm in these last couple games," coach Dave Hakstol said.

BUFFALO - Luke Schenn was probably just looking for a spark. And who could blame him? His team was lifeless and trailing by two midway through the second period. So the burly defenseman dropped his gloves and went to battle with Buffalo's Marcus Foligno. Not even Schenn's fight could stir any fight from the rest of his teammates in the Flyers' 3-1 loss Friday at First Niagara Center. The Flyers took three penalties after his fight and went shotless during a 10-minute, 51-second stretch before getting two late attempts on Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark, who was making his second career NHL start.

BUFFALO - Despite the Flyers' entering Friday night's game with the Sabres ranked 25th out of the 30 NHL teams in goals per game, coach Dave Hakstol said after Friday's morning skate he wasn't that concerned with the 2.11 goals per game they had averaged in their first nine contests. "I don't think it's any different of an outlook than it was two months ago," Hakstol said. "I think we're confident in our group when we're doing things together in the right way. I feel very comfortable saying that we can be a team that's comfortable playing the lower-scoring, close, tight games and being solid and consistent through the 60 minutes.

THE FLYERS swore coming into their game with Buffalo that their history of playing down to opponents after playing well against good teams was just that, the past. History seems to repeat itself sometimes. The Flyers followed up Saturday night's emotional win against the Rangers by limping out of the gate and recovering late in a 4-3 overtime loss to Buffalo, which came into Wells Fargo Center with a 2-6 record. "We got to find a way to be prepared for it," winger Jake Voracek said.

Danny Briere received several standing ovations Tuesday night, some when he was introduced before the opening faceoff and others when videos of the retired Flyers center were shown during the game. The Wells Fargo crowd didn't have many other reasons to cheer - until the hectic final minute of regulation. With goalie Steve Mason pulled for an extra attacker, Brayden Schenn tipped in Claude Giroux's shot from the top of the left circle, tying the score at 3-3 with 53.2 seconds left in the third period.

THIS WEEK'S soaring temps brought to mind some sizzling Philly sports memories. Like the time Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra started to argue with late umpire Eric Gregg during a sweltering exhibition game in Florida. "Lenny, I know exactly what you want me to do," Gregg is reported to have said. "You want me to run you out of this game. If I got to stay in this heat, you got to stay in this heat, so it doesn't matter what you call me, how many times you call me, I'm not running you out of this game.

NEW FLYERS coach Dave Hakstol has yet to fill out his staff. The logical supposition, given Hakstol's college roots, is that at least one member of the staff will be an NHL veteran, possibly with head coaching experience. Phantoms coach Terry Murray, went the speculation, would have fit perfectly, given his head coaching experience with the Capitals, Flyers, Panthers and Kings. But Murray is going to Buffalo instead, joining new coach Dan Bylsma's staff. Buffalo's general manager is Tim Murray, Terry's nephew.

Put a fork in the Flyers. That's what most fans are probably thinking after the Flyers did the inexplicable Thursday night at the stunned Wells Fargo Center: They lost to a woeful Buffalo team that had just three wins in a little more than two months. Buffalo 3. Flyers 2. In a shootout. Brian Flynn scored the game-winner, giving the Sabres a 7-2 record in shootouts. The Flyers fell to 2-7 in shootouts. Buffalo, the NHL's worst team, entered the night with three wins since Dec. 16, going 3-21-2 in 26 games.

BUFFALO - Michael Raffl says that he isn't quite 100 percent and that he is still getting his wind back after a long bout with pneumonia. On Sunday night, however, he breathed life into the Flyers' playoff hopes. Playing in his first game since Jan. 20, Raffl scored on a wraparound with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over hapless Buffalo at the First Niagara Center. The victory moved the Flyers to within five points of idle Boston for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot.
