A Bruins fan says he lied when he said Detroit Red Wings center Steve Yzerman struck him with his stick during a brawl after Saturday's game in Boston. Paul Colletti, 20, a Braintree, Mass., sanitation worker who punched Yzerman in the nose, said he made up the story, hoping to get charges against him reduced. "Steve Yzerman did not have a stick," Colletti said. "I got punched. I don't know where the punch came from. I don't really know what happened. He came walking over toward me, so I swung at him. "I feel terrible about pinpointing Steve Yzerman.

Lightning for Yzerman? Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings just seem to fit, don't they? He has been with the team 27 years, after all; 23 as a Hall of Fame center and four as a vice president. But if you listen to rumblings around the league, Yzerman might soon have to decide if it is time to make a break and, perhaps, if a job as the Tampa Bay Lightning's general manager fits into his plans. Who knows how serious Tampa Bay is about Yzerman, but clues are surfacing. To begin: No one has denied a report from Canada that Tampa Bay has permission to speak to Yzerman.

The Chicago Blackhawks fired general manager Mike Smith yesterday, citing differences between him and coach Brian Sutter. Senior vice president Bob Pulford was named interim general manager. There had been reports since last spring that Smith and Sutter have been at odds over philosophy. Smith wanted the team to play more of its young prospects. The Blackhawks, in last place in the Central Division, are off to a disappointing 2-4-1 start. Pulford said the dispute became intolerable last week when Smith told members of the press that Sutter was out to get him. In games last night: At Pittsburgh, Brian Rafalski and Brian Gionta scored their first goals of the season as New Jersey edged the Penguins, 2-1. At Anaheim, Taylor Pyatt scored two goals and Daniel Briere had three assists as Buffalo beat the Mighty Ducks, 5-2. At Detroit, Steve Yzerman scored twice as Dominik Hasek and the Red Wings blanked Dallas, 4-0. At Calgary, Doug Weight scored in the first period and Jeff Heerema's third-period goal won it as St. Louis beat the Flames, 2-1. At Sunrise, Fla., Wes Walz's third-period goal lifted Minnesota over Florida, 4-3.

The Detroit Red Wings easily lead the NHL in scoring, but coach Scotty Bowman has not been happy with his team's pattern of defensive lapses. So last night looked pretty good to him. "We were very committed to defense, and we still got five goals, so that makes this a good game," Bowman said after the Red Wings downed the visiting Edmonton Oilers, 5-1. Ray Sheppard scored the 200th goal of his NHL career and Paul Coffey had three assists...

Nobody says "threepeat" in the Detroit locker room. Still, the Red Wings clearly have another Stanley Cup championship on their minds. Detroit won its first Central Division title in three years and extended its winning streak to eight games last night as Steve Yzerman had two goals and an assist in a 6-1 victory over the visiting Vancouver Canucks. "I didn't even know about the divisional title," said Igor Larionov, who assisted on two of the goals. "Nobody was talking about that.

THE DEAL wasn't yet complete. Ron Hextall and Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman agreed to terms just after dinnertime on Sunday, but Hextall wanted doctors to review medical files. It had been in the works for days, since Yzerman expressed interest. With doctor approval, Hextall and Yzerman needed to wait for league staff to hustle back to the office in Manhattan in the middle of the night to register the trade. Before it was even finalized, Hextall tried to get Braydon Coburn on the phone.

NEARLY A FULL month after Steve Yzerman stood on a podium in Toronto and crushed his lifelong dream of making Canada's Olympic team, Claude Giroux feels a lingering pain. For the most part, it was not a topic of conversation - until he stood at his stall yesterday in the Flyers' locker room and was peppered by questions from reporters. "It upsets me, yeah," Giroux said. "I was disappointed, for sure. It was one of my dreams to make the Olympics. But it's just a detail. I try not to think about it right now. I have no control over it. I'm not going.

EVEN AFTER Steven Stamkos announced Wednesday that his valiant attempt to rehab his fractured tibia in time for the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi had failed, Claude Giroux tried not to pay attention. Giroux was on the short list of replacement candidates for Team Canada, but Giroux had a feeling that Hockey Canada general manager Steve Yzerman could not say no to his own deserving player on the Lightning, Martin St. Louis, for a third time and still maintain any sort of relationship.

NEWARK, N.J. - After 5 months of holding his breath, Claude Giroux admitted it would be difficult to sleep last night. The day he'd been waiting for - his Christmas for a hockey player growing up in Hearst, Ontario - was yesterday. His childhood dream instead turned into a nightmare that won't soon leave him. The Flyers' captain is not going to Sochi, Russia, to help Team Canada defend its magical gold medal from Vancouver 4 years ago. Giroux, 25, was left off Canada's Olympic roster when it was announced yesterday morning in Toronto.

Two years ago, Flyers center Claude Giroux was called the "best player in the world" by then-coach Peter Laviolette. Yet Giroux, stunningly, wasn't one of the 14 forwards selected for Canada's Olympic team Tuesday. Giroux tried to take the high road on being bypassed by Team Canada general manager Steve Yzerman and his staff. "Those questions are for Team Canada," he told reporters in Newark, where the Flyers were preparing to play the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. "I'm the hockey player.

WITH THE FLYERS' pipedream playoff odds dwindling by the day, opportunities will begin to crop up for players to continue playing in May - though it won't be in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Instead, quite a few Flyers likely will receive invitations to represent their countries in the World Championships in Stockholm and Helsinki from May 3-9. According to someone familiar with Hockey Canada executive director Steve Yzerman's thinking, both Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds appear to be high on Canada's wish list.

In the blink of an eye on Feb. 18, Pavel Kubina's chances of hoisting the Stanley Cup for a second time went from impossible to interesting when he was traded from Tampa Bay to Philadelphia. In one day, he went from the league's 24th-place team to the seventh-place squad. And so what if he changed a few latitudes along the way? "That doesn't bother me as much," Kubina said. "Where I'm from in the Czech Republic, we have weather similar to Philadelphia.
