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.

I WON'T exaggerate and claim that if the Union beats Seattle tonight at PPL Park and captures the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, it will be as big as if it makes the playoffs and wins the MLS championship. The MLS Cup is the ultimate goal of professional soccer in the United States. It is this sport's equivalent of winning the Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup or NBA Finals. In comparison, winning the Open Cup would be like winning the . . . well, there is no real equivalent in any other U.S. professional sport.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - The Stanley Cup arrived Thursday morning in the back of John Stevens' truck. The Cup had flown into Philadelphia International Airport the night before from its previous stop in Russia. By 11 a.m., the Cup was at Sea Isle's 57th Street beach, a day-tripper (no beach tag required), causing a scene as it rested for a couple of hours on a lifeguard boat. Since every player and coach who wins the Stanley Cup gets possession of the trophy for a day, this was Stevens' time.

CHRIS GRAMLICH has seen some cool things while delivering pizza to the beach, including dolphins (the kind that swim) and Ravens (the kind that play football). The 23-year-old West Chester native, who works for Uncle Oogie's restaurant in Sea Isle City, N.J., said he often sees bottlenose acrobats leaping in the surf, and occasionally runs into quarterback Joe Flacco lounging on the sand. But yesterday he saw something truly unique: The Stanley Cup! It's a tradition that each member of a Cup-winning team gets to take the trophy anywhere for a day. Former Flyers coach John Stevens - now an assistant with the NHL champion Los Angeles Kings, decided to bring it to Sea Isle, where he owns a home.

MOST ATHLETES try to stay out of hot water. Titans safety Bernard Pollard would welcome it. Pollard told "ESPN The Magazine" that the Broncos purposely turned off the hot water to the showers in the visiting locker room after last year's Week 14 matchup in Denver. The Broncos won, 51-28, in a game played in freezing temperatures that included an NFL-record 64-yard field goal by Denver's Matt Prater. The Titans undoubtedly were looking to wash away the embarrassing loss with a long, hot shower, but Pollard said someone at the stadium made sure that didn't happen.

Larry Zeidel, a rugged former Flyers defenseman who became infamous for a bloody, stick-swinging incident in 1968, died Tuesday morning at Pennsylvania Hospital. He was 86 and had been battling congestive heart failure and kidney problems. "He was as tough as they come on the ice, but off it, he was a total gentleman," said Joe Inemer, one of Mr. Zeidel's close friends. "He'd give you the shirt off his back. " Mr. Zeidel, regarded as one of the game's best fighters, spent most of his career in the minors, playing parts of five seasons in the NHL. He finished his career at age 39, playing nine games with the Flyers in 1968-69.

NEW YORK - Shown on the Madison Square Garden scoreboard during first-period stoppages Wednesday night, former New York Ranger Mark Messier, actor Michael J. Fox, and tennis legend John McEnroe each held up four fingers, apparently their way of saying that the Blueshirts had that many more Stanley Cup playoff victories in them. A couple of hours later, they needed only three. The Rangers delayed their funeral for another time, getting outstanding goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist en route to a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings, who have a three-games-to-one lead in the Finals.

NEW YORK - Justin Williams views himself more as the butt of a joke than the answer to a trivia question. Which NHL player holds the record for most points in Stanley Cup playoff Game 7s? Williams set the new mark earlier this month with his 14th career point in seven Game 7 situations, in which he is now 7-0. The two previous recordholders: Wayne Gretzky and Doug Gilmour. "It's kind of more like which name doesn't belong?" Williams said with a smile on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

For Flyers fans, it is their worst nightmare: a Stanley Cup Final matching the hated New York Rangers against a Los Angeles Kings team that has several key players who used to play for the Orange and Black. The Rangers, who eliminated the Flyers in seven opening-round games, will be aiming for their first title since 1994, while the Kings will be trying to capture their second championship in three years. The Big Market Series marks just the third time the teams are meeting in the playoffs, and the first time since 1981.

Win or lose at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, Triple Crown hopeful California Chrome will be racing with the weight of a TV network and a beleaguered horse-racing industry on his powerful shoulders. NBC expects to more than double the TV audience of a typical Belmont to 17 million viewers because of Chrome's story and his chance for the coveted Triple Crown - the last one was Affirmed in 1978. Over the last dozen years, four horses raced for the Triple Crown in the Belmont without winning: War Emblem in 2002, Funny Cide in 2003, Smarty Jones in 2004, and Big Brown in 2008.
