You win a few, lose a few and blow a few - such as Saturday's 2-2 tie with San Jose. The Flyers went into the third period with a 2-0 lead over the Sharks. They had been 4-0 this season when leading after two periods. Failing to win was a new wrinkle for a tired, struggling hockey team that has four days to recover before Eddie Johnston's Pittsburgh Penguins - a team in worse shape than Terry Murray's Flyers - limp into the CoreStates Center on Thursday night. Perhaps a trade is coming soon, too. Flyers general manager Bob Clarke has delayed making any "panic" deals, as he calls them, until he is confident that Eric Lindros will come back healthy.

They were terrific. They were terrible. They were terrific again. Good thing they didn't play a fourth period. The Flyers couldn't seem to make up their minds last night. After playing a strong, aggressive first period, the Flyers, except for goaltender Ron Hextall, went to sleep in the second period. Then they stormed back in the third and used a big goal by leftwinger Shjon Podein at 4 minutes, 43 seconds to beat the Washington Capitals, 4-2, at the Spectrum. The victory, their second straight and fifth in their last seven games, lifted the 8-8-2 Flyers to .500 for the first time this season.

Shjon Podein hasn't had the best of seasons for the Flyers. His goal production is down, his point production (16) is about half of what it was last season, and his ice time has dipped to as low as seven minutes a game. Last night, though, Podein made the difference. His second game-winner and ninth goal overall let the Flyers nip the New York Rangers, 5-4, in overtime at the CoreStates Center. "It's been a frustrating year . . . offensively," said Podein, who has played on the second, third and fourth lines this season.

Shjon Podein didn't mind playing an ugly hockey game against the Ottawa Senators last night. Ugly is his style. The Flyers winger committed an ugly penalty that led to a Senators goal in the second period. But he scored an ugly goal at 11 minutes, 44 seconds of the third period, which turned out to be the difference in the Flyers' 3-2 victory at the Corel Center. "It's nice, especially tonight," said Podein, who also scored the Flyers' first goal, in the second period.

You can argue that it was a game the Flyers should have won anyway. You can argue that they were due to win no matter whom they played. You certainly can't argue with how they did it. The Flyers broke their four-game winless streak last night with an impressive 3-0 blanking of the Winnipeg Jets at the Spectrum, and they did it by the numbers. Players who should score goals - John LeClair, Pat Falloon - did. A player they need to score goals - Shjon Podein - did. And goaltender Ron Hextall picked up his second shutout of the season, his seventh as a Flyer and the 12th of his career.

There are eight regular-season games remaining before the Stanley Cup playoffs, and Flyers coach Roger Neilson wants Sean Burke or Ron Hextall to make the decision for him when it comes time to choose a goalie. With Hextall nursing tendinitis in his left hip - his return is likely Wednesday - Burke has had the stage to himself this week in the audition to become the main stopper. Well, Burke took a step forward last night, pitching an unspectacular but solid shutout while the Flyers upped their modest winning streak to three games with a 3-0 decision over the Los Angeles Kings at the CoreStates Center.

Left winger Trent Klatt is expected to sign a new contract with the Flyers, possibly today. "We're close to signing," Klatt's agent, Jeff Solomon, said yesterday from Carlsbad, Calif. Solomon could have filed for arbitration Monday, but general manager Bob Clarke said yesterday that he thought Klatt would accept the new deal. Klatt earned $437,500 last season. Acquired in a mid-December trade with Dallas for Brent Fedyk, Klatt saw a lot of time on the club's third line with center Joel Otto and left wing Shjon Podein.

The New York Rangers dropped two straight on the road, but at home they remain unbeatable. Mark Messier had two goals and an assist last night as the Rangers defeated the Washington Capitals, 3-0, to extend their home unbeaten streak to 15 games. New York lost at Washington on Saturday. "You can see them feed off the fans and feed off each other. We didn't play badly, they just played better," Caps defenseman Sylvain Cote said. Messier's assist was the 901st of his career, tying him for seventh on the all-time list.

As the Mikael Renberg abdominal injury saga begins its sixth week, there is a new diagnosis. Renberg, who suffered what was then called a slight muscle strain on Jan. 22 in the Flyers' first game after the All-Star break, today is to see a new sports injury specialist, Dr. John McShane of the Rothman Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital. Renberg and a Flyers spokesman said that Flyers orthopedic surgeon Dr. Art Bartolozzi has determined Renberg has inflammation where the muscle is attached to the pubic bone, possibly caused by scar tissue from the original injury.

The Flyers signed left winger Brent Fedyk to a new contract yesterday, the terms of which were not disclosed. Fedyk said after the season ended this month that he expected to sign for a little under the NHL average salary of about $500,000 per season. An occasional favorite of Flyers coach Terry Murray, Fedyk ended his season on May 26 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers when he was sandwiched between two players and sustained a fracture of the first cervical vertebra.

Bob Clarke could not contain his emotions. It had nothing to do with the Flyers' 3-1 win over the New York Rangers in Saturday's Winter Classic alumni game at Citizens Bank Park. It had everything to do with the loud, sellout crowd that chanted and celebrated seeing Flyers players from every decade of the franchise's existence. Clarke, the onetime star who is now the Flyers senior vice president, was dumbfounded by the crowd's response and became teary-eyed when he talked about it. "You couldn't imagine something like this for an alumni game," he said.

The Flyers are playing the New Jersey Devils tonight to begin the second half of the season. Yet, the hype this week is really about Saturday when Eric Lindros is scheduled to make his first appearance in Philadelphia as a Ranger. Lindros hasn't played on First Union Center ice since May 26, 2000, when the Devils' Scott Stevens knocked him out of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. "It'll be a zoo," Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said yesterday. "When we made this deal with the Rangers, that was one of the things we knew would happen and the Rangers knew would happen.

Mario Lemieux decided just before game time he was healthy enough to play. The rest came naturally. Lemieux scored his first goal of the season and the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins won for the third time in four games, beating the Atlanta Thrashers last night, 4-2. "He doesn't need to touch the puck too often to make something happen," Pittsburgh winger Kevin Stevens said. "He's the best player in the world, and he showed again tonight what he can do on one leg. He's amazing.

On one end of the ice, Patrick Roy is making critical saves. On the other end, Roman Turek is simply becoming a critic. Roy stopped 28 shots, and the Colorado Avalanche got three goals from unlikely offensive sources as they took control of the Western Conference finals with a 4-2 victory over the visiting St. Louis Blues last night. The Avalanche leads the best-of-seven series, 2-0. Game 3 is tomorrow at night at St. Louis. "They scored three goals but they were pretty lucky goals," said Turek, who faced only 15 shots.

Patrick Roy benefited from some good luck as he moved within two wins of Terry Sawchuk's record for victories. Roy made 29 saves last night for his 445th victory as the visiting Colorado Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames, 3-1. "One of the shots in the second, [Valeri] Bure took a wrist shot and I never saw it, it just went straight into my glove," said Roy, who opened the season with two ties. "This was a night where the puck bounced into my glove, on other nights, that would have hit the post and go in. " Adam Deadmarsh, Peter Forsberg, and Shjon Podein scored for the Avalanche, while Ray Bourque and Adam Foote each had a pair of assists.

Goalie Ed Belfour said he simply misplayed the puck. Shjon Podein agreed. Podein stole the puck from Belfour behind the net and scored a shorthanded goal with 47 seconds left in overtime, lifting host Colorado to a 3-2 win over Dallas yesterday. Colorado, posting its fifth straight victory, extended its lead over Edmonton to six points in the Northwest Division, nearly securing the division title. Colorado has three games remaining and Edmonton four. "This was a huge game for us since Edmonton won last night," Avalanche coach Bob Hartley said.

Shjon Podein credited teammate Chris Drury with helping him get his first three-goal game. The ex-Flyer had his first career hat trick, leading visiting Colorado to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers last night. Podein completed the hat trick at 17:23 of the third period with his ninth goal of the season, converting a pass from Drury while being pulled down to make it 4-2. "Chris made a great pass, and fortunately I was able to put it through the five-hole," Podein said.
