"Everyone at the Phillies is saddened by the news of Stan's passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Gloria, his family and his Daily News colleagues. In the early '60s, Stan and his fellow writers made the Daily News sports section a 'must read' for young readers such as myself. Over the next 45 years, it was a pleasure to get to know him on a personal level. "His writing skills and talents allowed him to cover a variety of subjects including restaurant reviews, boxing and other sports, but I believe he always had a special place in his heart for baseball.

THIS MAY HAVE been a disappointing year in Philadelphia sports, but mankind once again came through with plenty of missteps for our annual report on the year in fools. While social media was again a big contributor, there are plenty of other examples of man having the proverbial chair pulled out from under him. From KKK outfits to the stadium design that resembled a toilet, we certainly fumbled our way through these last 365 days. As always, we start with the easiest target in this annual exercise of tossing boulders from the living room of our glass house.

ASIDE FROM battling Sidney Crosby for the Art Ross Trophy, Jake Voracek will have one more thing to play for this spring: a gold medal on home ice at the World Championships. Once the Flyers wrap up their season next Saturday, Voracek and quite a few teammates will have a few weeks to prepare for the 16-team IIHF tournament in Prague and Ostrava, Czech Republic. The tournament runs May 1-17. "Trust me, I'd rather be in a playoff run, battling for the Cup," Voracek said. "But there's an opportunity to play for my country, especially at home.

Even though the Flyers' elimination from playoff contention was inevitable, there was an aura of sadness in coach Craig Berube's voice Monday as he talked about what could have been. "In the back of your head, you always think you have a chance, and when you're officially eliminated, it's not a good feeling," Berube said in a low tone after practice in Voorhees one day after Boston's win knocked the Flyers out of contention. The Flyers have six games left, starting with Wednesday's matchup in Pittsburgh.

WHEN IT was over, the Wells Fargo Center scoreboard stated the Flyers beat the Blackhawks, 4-1, providing the slightest revenge from the 2010 Stanley Cup finals. The "Orange and the Black" roared over the sound system as the Flyers congratulated each other, with most of the 19,831 walking out into the South Philadelphia night happy. Kimmo Timonen's return was about the only thing worth cheering. Because in the grand scheme of the franchise, the Flyers lost last night. That's what the Blackhawks should have taught the Flyers, even if Patrick Kane - the prize of the 2007 NHL draft lottery - was not on the ice. With another two points in an utterly meaningless late March contest, the Flyers only increased the odds they'll be picking at No. 8 this June in South Florida.

THE VOICE cracked, and with it the stoicism that defines Finns. Kimmo Timonen had paused and coughed, and coughed and paused again, hoping perhaps that another question would wash over this inquiry about the night that lay ahead, and the emotions it would produce. None came, though, and so he fought through his answer with all the Sisu he could muster. "Sorry," he said, after his first attempt to choke back tears created a long pause. "I'm sure it's going to be good . . . All the things that happened here . . . Happy to be here . . . " His voice trailed off once again, and finally someone - OK, me - bailed him out. "Finns are supposed to be stoic," I said.

ST. LOUIS - Talk to those closest to Claude Giroux and they'll tell you that the person in front of the camera and front-and-center for questions after a gut-wrenching loss isn't always the same away from the microphones. Like, that time last April, a family member caught a ride home from Giroux after a Stanley Cup playoff loss the Rangers. The entire 15-minute trip, from South Philadelphia to Center City, Giroux slammed his fists on the steering wheel and cursed up a blue streak - in French.

The Flyers picked a good time to be a stumbling hockey team. If they had been entrenched in a playoff spot, first-year general manager Ron Hextall may have been a buyer - in a seller's market. Instead, Hextall made his second move before Monday's trade deadline that conjured memories of the most successful general manager in Flyers history. It was the late Keith "The Thief" Allen whose shrewd moves helped build the Flyers into Stanley Cup champions in 1974 and 1975. Hextall has a while before the Flyers can compete for a Stanley Cup, but his latest moves - getting four draft picks and a serviceable defenseman for an almost-40-year-old defenseman on the verge of retiring, Kimmo Timonen, along with underachieving Braydon Coburn - were a good start.

THE MOMENT Kimmo Timonen learned his hockey season had been reduced to a couple of months, a few drugs and prayer in a hospital bed in Finland, he reorganized his priorities. "It wasn't about money, it wasn't about anything else," Timonen said. "The only thing I am missing is the Stanley Cup. It became my only goal to return to hockey. If I had won a Stanley Cup before, we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. " That's because Timonen, who turns 40 on March 18, would likely have decided the risk associated with a return with a blood disorder that causes blood clots too great.

Kimmo Timonen, one of the best defensemen in Flyers history, said he wanted a chance to win a Stanley Cup in the final season of his superb NHL career. On Friday night, the Flyers gave him that opportunity, sending him to the powerful Chicago Blackhawks for a second-round pick in the June draft and a conditional fourth-round selection in 2016. "The only thing I'm missing from my hockey career is a Stanley Cup," Timonen, sidelined all season because of blood clots, said in a conference call Friday night.
