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.

A replica of the Stanley Cup made from 6,000 Lego bricks that was stolen from a Las Vegas show earlier this week has been found. Brian Copp, of Tucson, Ariz., told police he was working in Las Vegas when he bought the cup for $50. He contacted police when he saw an article about the stolen model in a newspaper. "He was being a good Samaritan," Tucson police spokeswoman Kathy Wendling said yesterday. "He was being a good kid, doing the right thing. " Copp could not immediately be reached for comment yesterday.

Because of its sports teams' futility in the early 1970s, Philadelphia was known as the City of Losers. Rick MacLeish and the Flyers helped change that image and started a renaissance on the Philly sports scene with their unexpected march to the 1974 Stanley Cup. MacLeish, 66, died Monday after battling numerous medical problems that hospitalized him for about nine weeks. In Flyers history, the magnitude of MacLeish's impact is not appreciated until you talk to his teammates.

They came from all over, young and old, rich and poor, and paid tribute to Ed Snider, the man who gambled 50 years ago that Philadelphia would become attracted to hockey. Snider, the Flyers' chairman and cofounder, died at 83 on April 11 after a two-year battle with bladder cancer, and a celebration of his life was held Thursday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, home of the team he loved like one of his six children and 15 grandchildren. In a heartfelt 1-hour, 50-minute ceremony that included speeches from three of his children, business associates, friends, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, Mayor Kenney and former Flyers great Bob Clarke, Snider was remembered as a man of passion and wisdom.

IT WAS the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was a decision of confirmation for the Washington Capitals; it was a decision of desperation for the Flyers. No one would have faulted Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby if he had sat out Game 4 of the Stanley Cup first-round series with the Flyers on Wednesday. Washington had a commanding 3-0 lead and, after Holtby had an injury scare in practice on Tuesday when he collided with a teammate, a risk-reward situation was at hand.

SINCE ED SNIDER'S death, a lot has been written about him, Philadelphia, and Flyers Nation. I could not let the opportunity pass without adding my insight. As I thought about what to write someone from 6ABC came into my office to capture my reaction and showed me an article I wrote in June 2011, titled, "Ed Snider and Philly have been perfect together. " I reread it and was shocked to find how well it encapsulated a lot of what I want to say now. Let me quote from a few sections: "Ed Snider might not be the easiest guy to love - he's too rich, too handsome, too self-assured, too stubborn, too Republican (although he has been a significant contributor to my campaigns)

ARLINGTON, Va. - His early years with the Flyers showed promise, but few could have forecast that Justin Williams would become one of the most clutch NHL postseason performers. The Washington Capitals right winger, who began his career in 2000 with the Flyers and stayed with them until being traded to Carolina in January 2004, has been a major part of three Stanley Cup winners. He helped Carolina win a Stanley Cup in 2006 and was on Los Angeles Kings championship teams in 2012 and 2014.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Mike Richards once was among the bright young athletes in Philadelphia, a Stanley Cup finalist with the Flyers in 2010, an Olympic gold medalist with Canada earlier that year. After a trade and Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014 with the Los Angeles Kings, Richards saw his life unravel last year, first with a demotion to the minor leagues and then an arrest at a Canadian border stop in June, after which he was charged with possession of the controlled substance oxycodone.

Even in his failing days as he battled bladder cancer, Ed Snider had the urge to let general manager Ron Hextall know how much a Stanley Cup playoff run would mean to him - and to subtly suggest that maybe, just maybe, it might be a good idea to make a deal. Snider, who died at his California home Monday at 83, was known for being impatient and signing high-priced free agents during many of his years as the Flyer chairman. However, after Hextall became the GM two years ago, Snider was on board with his plans to rebuild the team through the draft.

With five weeks left in the regular season, the Flyers have 18 games to show whether they belong in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Those 18 games will also help determine the team's MVP, which is too close to call at the moment. Below are my leading candidates, in order. But, remember, things could change dramatically by the time the regular season ends April 10 against the New York Islanders in Brooklyn.

Former Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen received some personal attention Thursday from President Obama at the White House. Timonen, who is retired and living in Haddonfield, and his Chicago Blackhawks teammates, coaches and club personnel were honored for winning last year's Stanley Cup. Obama called Timonen and goalie Scott Darling "two unsung heroes. " He praised Timonen for his great career and overcoming blood clots before joining the Hawks last season. He had kind words for Darling, praising his act of kindness to a homeless man during a recent Chicago road trip.

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.
