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.

"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.
