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.

When he was hired by the Flyers and left the University of North Dakota on Monday, Dave Hakstol became just the third coach in NHL history to climb directly from the NCAA ranks to his first head coaching job in the NHL. He hopes to be as successful as one of them, the late Bob Johnson, who directed Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup in 1991. Johnson coached the University of Wisconsin for 16 seasons and won three national titles before being hired by the Calgary Flames in 1982. The Flames made the playoffs in all five of his seasons and reached the Finals in 1986.

THE DARKEST of clouds hovered over the Wells Fargo Center at noon yesterday, threatening a downpour of epic proportions. Inside, though, the sun's high beams were on. Accolades for a coach who has never dipped his toes into the NHL, from a first-year general manager who has never hired a head coach before. Accolades for both from an 82-year-old chairman whose very approval of it clearly indicates a mindset that is now all-in. Give the old man credit for this. Ed Snider defended the hiring of a career college coach yesterday by referencing the humble starts of Fred Shero and Mike Keenan, reminding us not only that his stewardship has not always been about hiring known quantities and former players, but also how long his tenure as head of this team has been.

MIKE BABCOCK promises this will all be over within a week. For the Flyers, the prospects of landing their No. 1 head-coaching candidate must seem at least a little dull, considering the optics of a 25-minute interview with TSN's Darren Dreger on Friday. Babcock thoughtfully answered every question, but the NHL's most sought after free-agent coach in history did so while sitting next to Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland in a hotel room in Prague, where the two are scouting the World Championships.

AFTER A WEEK of contemplation, Mike Babcock wants to see what's on the open market. And despite their interest in keeping Babcock on as head coach, the Detroit Red Wings will give him that opportunity. The Red Wings granted Babcock permission to speak to interested parties beginning at noon yesterday, the team announced. His negotiation window with interested parties will extend through May 25. Babcock, 52, is hockey's most sought-after free agent this summer - including players.

On the days, separated by seven months, that they promoted Craig Berube to head coach and Ron Hextall to general manager, the Flyers framed each announcement in the manner in which they conduct so much of their daily business - with a reverence for their past that bordered on the pathological. Berube and Hextall had been teammates with the Flyers a generation earlier, and both had worked for the organization after their playing careers had ended. Ed Snider, the Flyers' team chairman, and Paul Holmgren, the team's president, flanked Berube at the first news conference and Hextall at the second, and the stories and anecdotes from the old days flowed like foamy Molson from a just-tapped keg. That was the nostalgic veneer and implicit message of each image: that Chief and Hexy were Flyers once and Flyers forever, and they would stay true to the organization's core principles and practices.

There's a fine line between methodical and calculating, and if his stated reasons for leaving Craig Berube twisting in the breeze are true, then Ron Hextall is treading that line now. The Flyers were eliminated from playoff contention in late March. Their regular season ended Saturday. Their exit interviews took place Monday. Yet Hextall, their general manager, ostensibly still hasn't decided whether Berube will return as head coach, and he took pains to paint himself Wednesday as a great deliberator - patient, thoughtful, measured.

THE THEME of Ron Hextall's first season-ending news conference as Flyers general manager was clarity. Reporters wanted clarity on Craig Berube's job status. The GM said he had not decided whether to bring the Chief back for the final season of his contract, extend it, or thank him for his service and move on. "He's our head coach," Hextall said. "And if something changes, I'll let you guys know. " OK, fine. But then Hextall asked for some clarity, about a perceived philosophical rift between his vision going forward and that of team chairman Ed Snider.

RON HEXTALL swallowed hard before the words dribbled out of his mouth. Craig Berube is still the head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, but Hextall isn't sure for how much longer. The Flyers were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs 19 days ago, but Hextall said that wasn't enough time. "The wait is that I'm going to be methodical," Hextall said. "I want to make the right decision. I'm not going to make a quick decision to appease people, or to follow along like it's going like it's supposed to be done.

Thirty-five years ago on tax day, this town was the envy of sports fans across the country. The Flyers, with memories of their consecutive Stanley Cup titles still fresh, were on their way back to the finals after putting together a record 35-game unbeaten streak during the regular season. The 76ers, with Julius Erving in his prime, were a couple of weeks away from ousting the hated Boston Celtics from the Eastern Conference finals and returning to the NBA Finals for the second time in four years.

AS MUCH AS just about anyone, Phantoms coach Terry Murray has a Flyers logo tattooed on his butt. The Flyers' coach in the 1997 Stanley Cup final enjoyed stops in Florida, Washington and Los Angeles, but he's always made it back to his first home as a player - as a scout, assistant coach or minor league mentor. Murray should be forgiven if he is rooting for the Flyers to lose today in their meaningless season finale. That would mean his older brother, Bryan, can officially resume the chase of that elusive first Stanley Cup next week.
