The Stanley Cup hangover continues. On the day after the Rangers broke their 54-year date with dismay, a hockey halftime broke out at the basketball game. Mark Messier, the Rangers' team captain, did an encore performance with his sport's most precious trophy. One night after Messier and his teammates did the traditional victory celebration in some New York drinking establishment - sipping from the Cup, kissing the Cup, the whole deal - the captain came back to the Garden and raised high his prize.

BOSTON - Eleven goals. Evaporating two-goal leads. Thunderous hits. One raucous arena, filled with frenzied black-and-gold-clad fans. Even one goal scored from a rocketed ricochet off the glass behind the net. If you didn't know any better, you'd think you were watching the Battle of Pennsylvania all over again - with the Flyers and Penguins trading tallies at will - instead of the defensive deadlock we've witnessed between the Bruins and...

The Stanley Cup Finals lost nearly a quarter of what already was a small television audience. Anaheim's 1-0 win over Ottawa in Game 2 on Wednesday night got a 0.6 cable rating on Versus and was watched in 446,000 homes in the United States. The rating was down 33 percent from last year's second game, a 5-0 victory for Carolina over Edmonton, which received a 0.9 cable rating (600,000 homes) on OLN, as Versus was then known. The Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby, at 19 the youngest player in NHL history to get 100 points in a season and to win a scoring title, is now the youngest to wear the captain's C. The youngest previous captain was Tampa Bay's Vincent Lecavalier.

To appreciate the best of what the NHL has to offer - the speed, skill and exquisite timing that attract the game's purists - it's necessary to gaze toward the Western Conference, where the power and entertainment are monopolized by four teams. In St. Louis, Colorado, Detroit and Dallas, the game is played at its highest and most enjoyable levels. So it will be surprising if the Stanley Cup is not hoisted by the Blues, Avalanche, Red Wings or Stars when the most grueling tournament in professional sports ends in the heat of mid-June.

For the next two months inside NHL dressing rooms stretching from Buffalo to Anaheim, the demand for painkillers, sutures, face shields, bandages and vials of ginseng extract will become more frequent. On the periphery of the games, the howls for justice and the accusations of foul play will grow louder, and the secrecy surrounding injuries to key players will be tightened. The Stanley Cup playoffs, the sporting world's most physically demanding tournament, begin tonight with the openers of four Western Conference series.

Please welcome the 2012-13 Stanley Cup champion Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs? If a member of the Canadian parliament gets his way, it might happen in June. Brent Rathgeber, a lawyer and Conservative Party MP who represents Edmonton-St. Albert, Alberta, says Lord Stanley's Cup should be awarded to a Canadian amateur team such as the senior-level Chinook Hockey League's Chiefs if the NHL labor fight isn't settled in time to save the season. Rathgeber suggested in a blog post last week that the Cup could be the prize in a national competition to determine the best non-pro team in Canada.

Jonathan Quick remembers eating ice pops with his friends and watching their beloved New York Rangers win the Stanley Cup on television in 1994. Dustin Brown vaguely recalls Joe Nieuwendyk's bringing the Cup to Ithaca, N.Y., but can't remember if he got to see it up close. With just one more win by their Los Angeles Kings, the star goalie and the captain will have the Stanley Cup in their hands, above their head - even in the Pacific Ocean, if they choose. The stage is set for a California coronation in Game 4 on Wednesday night.

BACK WHEN they were finishing in first or second perennially during the Lindros era, the Flyers would often drive their fans crazy by dropping games against second-division clubs. Those teams would treat the game as a barometer to their progress or potential. The Flyers would see it not necessarily as a night off, but one that did not require maximum effort. Sometimes they were wrong, leaving the false impression that something was lacking in their mettle. More often, they were right, although sometimes not without a frantic finish.

Though Philadelphia hasn't witnessed a Stanley Cup parade in four decades and this year's Flyers have been lifeless, the Wells Fargo Center was filled and alive for a recent game with San Jose. Many of the fans had been going since they were youngsters. They proudly wore team gear and followed the action as knowingly as they might a football game. And while the home team lost again, its loyal supporters will return. Two years from now, the Flyers will celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Rod Brind'Amour spent parts of nine seasons with the Flyers, including six years with defenseman Chris Therien as his teammate. Make that his appreciative teammate. Therien watched Brind'Amour's fanatical devotion to fitness with wide eyes. "Nobody worked harder," said Therien, now a Flyers broadcaster. "When I think of Roddy Brind'Amour, the first thing I think of is dedication and work. I know he has a lot of accolades - the Stanley Cup, captain of a team - but to me, the work and the professionalism he brought to the rink every day is what stands out. He was committed to helping his team and committed to himself.

LAST WEEK, when Kimmo Timonen went to Chicago to take part in the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup celebration leading up to the new season, the 40-year-old was not simply taking part in the festivities. Sure, he went to a ring ceremony, then he was at United Center last Wednesday watching the team's banner unveiling and saw his name on the Cup. But he was also testing himself. When he went to Chicago's morning skate that day, he walked around the locker room for about 10 minutes. "I wanted to see if I got any kind of itch to put my gear on and go out there, but I didn't," Timonen said on a conference call over the weekend.

WAYNE SIMMONDS said he tried not to watch much hockey when the Flyers' season ended nearly six months ago. But sometimes you can't help it. So he watched, like many others, as the Chicago Blackhawks topped the Tampa Bay Lightning and hoisted the Stanley Cup in June. "It feels like it's been an eternity," Simmonds said after yesterday's practice. "Going home early, not making the playoffs, you sit on your couch and try not to watch the other teams play. You end up watching them play.

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.

IT'S BEEN a crazy month in Flyerland. Kimmo Timonen finally won his Stanley Cup, albeit with another team. Chris Pronger, who hasn't laced 'em up since the Phillies were good and still has a couple of years left on his gaudy contract, was traded, at least technically. And then, a few days later, he was named to the Hall of Fame. Up until now, the only current players who received such an honor had names like McCartney, Dylan, Jagger and, of course, Springsteen. But the craziest chapter of the month in Flyerland involves, sadly, the Flyers captain who preceded Pronger.

After his team's 2-0, title-clinching win over Tampa Bay on Monday night, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews could have handed the Stanley Cup to one of his many longtime teammates. Instead, in a classy move, he gave the iconic trophy to a defenseman who had played for Chicago for all of 31/2 months. Kimmo Timonen, 40, had waited his whole life for that moment. Timonen, the ex-Flyer whom Chicago acquired just before the trade deadline, raised the Cup triumphantly and skated around the ice while the red-clad Blackhawks fans let out a roar that lived up to the United Center's nickname: Madhouse on Madison.
