Embarrassment turned to anger and aggression, so the New Jersey Devils, the best team in the Eastern Conference during the regular season, get to live at least another day in the Stanley Cup playoffs. For the Ottawa Senators, the scent of their first playoff-series victory since they joined the NHL five years ago may have been as numbing as the bone-jarring hits the Devils were delivering. With defenseman Scott Stevens leading a demolition squad and goalie Martin Brodeur barricading the net, the Devils avoided one of the tournament's most shocking first-round eliminations with a methodical 3-1 win over the Senators last night at the Continental Airlines Arena.

It took only one look for voters to pick this year's class of Hockey Hall of Famers. Former New Jersey Devils great Scott Stevens was elected in his first year of eligibility, along with Mark Messier, Ron Francis and Al MacInnis. Stevens won three Stanley Cup titles with the New Jersey Devils while punishing the opposition as the game's best hitter. In addition to the championships Stevens won with the Devils, he was chosen as playoff MVP in 2000. A fearless player known as much for his leadership as his bone-crunching body checks, Stevens proves there is room in the Hall for more than just offensive players.

The San Jose Sharks needed a rallying point. Scott Stevens gave it to them. The Devils' defenseman angered the visiting Sharks with his mouth as much as his aggressive play in a 3-3 tie last night. After a rough second period, the Devils' defenseman got into a shouting match with a couple of players on the Sharks' bench as the teams left the ice. He irked the Sharks by looking at Brantt Myhres, a former Flyer, and telling him "to go have another beer," several San Jose players said.

When the New Jersey Devils play mistake-free hockey, they are the team most of the NHL has a hard time beating. Patrik Elias and Sergei Brylin scored 1 minute, 21 seconds apart in the first period, and Randy McKay added two goals as the Devils beat host Carolina yesterday, 5-1, to close out the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, four games to two. "This wasn't easy for us," said Scott Stevens, captain of the Stanley Cup champions who...

For the newest Flyer, Radko Gudas, life is good. The rugged defenseman, acquired along with first- and third-round draft picks in the deal that sent Braydon Coburn to Tampa Bay, is healing after knee surgery, is expecting his first child (a girl) in two weeks, and is being reunited with his longtime friend from the Czech Republic, Jake Voracek. "I'm happy to be on a team that wants me," he said Wednesday after arriving at the team's practice facility in Voorhees. "It's always exciting to be a part of something new.

THE FLORIDA Panthers are naming their press box after the late Roger Neilson, the franchise's first coach who also spent parts of three seasons behind the Flyers bench. A dedication will be held at the Panthers' arena on Monday afternoon. The Flyers play at Florida later that night. Neilson was known for his curly hair, loud ties and for occasionally getting lost on the way to the arena. His innovation with game tape earned him the nickname "Captain Video. " Neilson coached eight teams from 1977-02.

With methodical efficiency, the poise of a franchise accustomed to success and the right guess from their coach, the New Jersey Devils continued to lay waste to their reputation as Stanley Cup playoff duds. Nearly counted out of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against Boston a week ago, the Devils moved within one victory of advancing to the National Hockey League's Final Four with a bruising 2-0 win over the Bruins at Meadowlands Arena last night. That gives the Devils a three games to two lead in the best-of-seven series.

He is, quite simply, a defenseman who can control a hockey game. And he is a huge reason the New Jersey Devils are a threat to repeat as Stanley Cup champions. His name isn't Scott Stevens. It's Scott Niedermayer. With Stevens likely sidelined because of post-concussion syndrome, Niedermayer's impact will be felt when the Flyers open the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Devils on Thursday night at the Wachovia Center. "He is always the best player in the game when it's a big game," Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock said.

In addition to Scott Stevens, Martin Brodeur and Scott Gomez, there seems to be a new leader emerging on the Stanley Cup champion New Jersey Devils - Alexander Mogilny. A one-time 76-goal scorer, Mogilny might have been the Devils' best player in training camp and he continued the high level of play as New Jersey opened the season by raising a championship banner and kept the party going against Montreal. Mogilny, who scored 24 goals last season for Vancouver and the Devils, had two in an 8-4 win last night over the Canadiens.

It wasn't just the New Jersey Devils' season-high five goals or their 40 shots that left Bobby Holik smiling yesterday. "It was all the little things, too," Holik said after the visiting Devils took over first place in the NHL's Atlantic Division with a 5-2 victory over the slumping Carolina Hurricanes. "I think it was the best team effort of the year - by far," said Holik, who had a goal and an assist. "Everybody contributed one way or another. " Randy McKay, Jay Pandolfo, Denis Pederson and Scott Stevens added goals for the Devils, who won for the 10th time in 14 games and moved one point ahead of Pittsburgh.

We're at a moment in time in Philadelphia sports. We're at that precious point when it's never better to be a fan here. A year ago Sunday, the Flyers selected defenseman Ivan Provorov with the seventh pick in the NHL draft, the first of the four potentially franchise-shaping high draft picks that the city's major pro teams have made in the last 365 days. First the Flyers and Provorov last year, then the Eagles and quarterback Carson Wentz in April, the Phillies and outfielder Mickey Moniak earlier this month, and the 76ers and Ben Simmons on Thursday night.

LESS THAN a minute into Radko Gudas' first in-person media session, Jake Voracek interrupted Gudas in the middle of a sentence and placed the defenseman's new No. 3 Flyers jersey across Gudas' chest. "It's good to have another 'Czecho' here," Voracek said as he walked away, after yesterday's practice. And the consensus among the players in the Flyers' locker room is that it's good to have Gudas on your team, and not the other way around. The bruising, 6-foot, 204-pound blue-liner was shipped to the Flyers from Tampa Bay, along with a conditional first-round pick and a third-round pick, in exchange for Braydon Coburn at Monday's trade deadline.

Here in Philadelphia, we like our sports villains nasty, arrogant, demonstrative. It makes them easier to dislike. When Michael Irvin strutted out of a Texas Stadium tunnel, when Kobe Bryant promised to rip out the 76ers' hearts, when Scott Stevens went on a search-and-destroy mission in a conference finals' seventh game and found Eric Lindros, they touched something visceral, guttural, within every sports fan in this city. They did something, in its way, unforgivable. They won, and in winning, they knew, or at least acted as if they believed, that they were intrinsically better than Philadelphia and its teams and its people.

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. - Wearing plaid black shorts, a white polo shirt with the "NHL Draft 2013" logo, and white sneaks, Darnell Nurse sat on a stool and answered questions during an outdoor news conference Friday at a North Jersey hotel that overlooked the Hudson River and the majestic New York City skyline. Nurse was relaxed, funny, and cordial, giving little hint that he is going to be a defenseman who will soon create havoc in NHL arenas with his rugged style of play. "I've always compared Darnell to Shea Weber," said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting.

The term is believed to mean black on the outside, white on the inside. Ferdinand's older brother, Rio , who plays for Manchester United, responded to the tweet on Saturday with: "I hear you fella!
