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.

Kimmo Timonen had just finished an interview with a Finnish television crew last week and was in a pensive but happy mood. The Flyers' sturdy little defenseman was asked if it gave him more motivation to play in the Stanley Cup playoffs because he may retire after they end. "It does," he said. "But I haven't decided anything yet. I want to play these playoffs and see how I feel. I just want to put that decision behind me and focus on the games we have here. " Starting Thursday in New York, the Flyers face the Rangers in an intriguing opening-round series.

PITTSBURGH - Flyers and Lightning fans were playfully chanting back and forth during Thursday's game in Tampa Bay, Fla., trying to out-insult each other. At one point, Lightning fans started a mocking chant: "1975! 1975!" That, of course, was the last time the Flyers won the Stanley Cup. The drought figures to be extended, because even if the Flyers get past the Rangers in the opening round, and even if they win in the second round against (in all probability) the Penguins, they are no match for the Bruins.

TAMPA, Fla. - Down the palm tree-lined street across from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the road-weary Columbus Blue Jackets were watching the Flyers' every move. Already in town ahead of their own meeting with the Lightning tonight, the Blue Jackets' hopes of climbing in the Metropolitan Division rose with every blaring goal horn - which they could probably hear from their balconies on a gorgeous Florida spring night.

TAMPA, Fla. - Wiping the perspiration from preparation for Game 80 from his brow, Kimmo Timonen was asked by a reporter yesterday how he was feeling when a familiar voice piped up from an adjacent stall. "Old," best friend Scott Hartnell answered for him. Timonen laughed. But even he, one of the fiercest competitors, could not deny the ill effects of Father Time. "Once you get to 39, you do feel old sometimes," Timonen said. "But that's the truth. It's been a long year, with the Olympics and the travel and the time changes and everything, but that's passed.

Hal Gill has played in just four games this season and has been a healthy scratch since Dec. 21, but the veteran defenseman has been an important part of the Flyers, coach Craig Berube said after the team practiced Friday in Voorhees. Gill, who turns 39 on Sunday, was named the Philadelphia Hockey Writers Association's nominee for the Masterton Award, given annually to the player who demonstrates perseverance and dedication to hockey. Berube called him a "great leader" and role model, adding that Gill has had a big effect on the younger players "because he's played a long time, won a Cup, done that, done this.

ST. LOUIS - Ken Hitchcock can still remember the first time he got a glimpse of Craig Berube. It was the summer of 1984. Berube arrived in Kamloops, British Columbia, for a camp before the start of the Western Hockey League season - Hitchcock's first year as a big-time junior coach. Berube, then 18, had just wrapped up a 104-penalty-minute campaign with the New Westminster Bruins of the same league. Some 30 years gone, the sight still haunts Hitchcock. "He got off this bus from Williams Lake with the toughest group of guys I've ever seen," Hitchcock said.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

SINCE 2008, exactly 28 of the NHL's 30 franchises - every one except Edmonton and Atlanta/Winnipeg - have qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs at least once. Luke Schenn made his NHL debut as a wide-eyed 18-year-old on Oct. 9, 2008, with the Maple Leafs. Toronto didn't qualify for the playoffs from 2005-06 until last spring, Schenn's first season with the Flyers - who coincidentally missed out on a run at Lord Stanley's chalice for just the second time since 1994. Schenn has played for two of the game's proudest franchises and has never had a crack at the ultimate prize.

PATRICK KANE couldn't help himself. He had been back to the Wells Fargo Center once - more than 2 years ago - since the shot that changed his life on June 9, 2010, back when the place was still called the Wachovia Center. "I know it was a long time ago," Kane said. "But it feels like it was just yesterday. " Late on that warm summer night, Kane snuck a shot through Michael Leighton's pads that stretched Philadelphia's Stanley Cup drought to 35 years just 4:06 into overtime of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.
