TAMPA, Fla. - The arena's name seems to change every time the Flyers are in Tampa, but the results are the same. Steven Stamkos scored a pair of goals as the Flyers lost their seventh straight decision in Tampa Bay's home rink since 2011, dropping a 4-3 decision to the Lightning on Thursday night at what is now called Amalie Arena. The defeat ended the Flyers' three-game winning streak, and they will try to rebound Saturday night against the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla. Tampa Bay won the game by going 2 for 5 on the power play, while the Flyers were 0 for 2. The last power-play goal, which gave the Lightning a 4-2 lead with 3 minutes, 12 seconds left, came after a controversial too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty on Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, who thought he got off the ice in time.

MARGATE, N.J. - The old saying that calm seas never made a good sailor may apply to Salvatore Calabrese when it comes to operating his family's bay-front Blue Water Marina, which was nearly washed away by Hurricane Sandy. Two years and more than $1 million later, Calabrese has weathered the storm after the storm: a series of challenges and setbacks including spending $100,000 just to remove debris from the site and finding adequate funding to complete the rebuilding. The marina is set to fully reopen in the spring.

The chatter that Pope Francis will visit the land of cheesesteaks and Tastykakes next year has not been officially confirmed. But members of the DiCocco family, owners of the St. Jude Shop Inc. in Havertown, Delaware County, might be in a position to know. In the 50 years since the Catholic religious store was founded, the DiCoccos have been called on to design chairs for pontiffs, arrange a gift from a president to a pope, and help design the interiors of cathedrals. But as far as Francis' visiting Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, the DiCoccos aren't talking.

On Point Drive at the tip of Longport, where houses were cracked open two years ago by Hurricane Sandy's waves and wind, their multimillion-dollar vulnerability bared to the sea, all is as it was. The Hankins finished a total rebuild. The Tuchmans debated selling, but decided to do the repairs and keep their summer home after all. Marvin Ashner, who never left, not even during the storm, still answers his door beneath whimsical Blues Brothers statues. "Everybody's back," said Steven Hankin, an Atlantic City lawyer who lives on Point Drive, which overlooks the inlet's washing machine currents.

Jeff Stoutland has a name he uses to describe the naysayers of the world. There were quite a few members of this so-called fraternity who predicted doom when the Eagles offensive line lost one starter after another and inexperienced backups were pushed to the fore. "I don't live in a world of the 'Fellowship of the Miserable,' " the Eagles' offensive line coach said Thursday. "I never think that way. I'm always thinking that this group is going to be a solid group. We're going to work our butts off to get them ready to play, and they'll be ready if they're called upon.

The football struck a Roman Catholic defender's hand, ricocheted into the air, and hung over Washington's field on Saturday afternoon for what seemed an eternity. Cahillites coach Joe McCourt watched from the sideline, hoping the fourth-quarter play did not somehow turn into an Archbishop Ryan gain. Tom Stevens ran underneath the ball as it dropped toward the turf. "I hope I don't drop this," the Roman linebacker thought. Stevens grasped the ball and sprinted all alone with the interception for a 35-yard touchdown that sealed visiting Roman's 24-16 win. When the 6-foot-1 junior reached the end zone, he appeared to begin to dive across the goal line before stopping midstride.

Two weeks ago, John Robertson looked like a guy capable of carving up FCS defenses with one hand tied behind his back. On Saturday at Villanova Stadium he basically did just that. With his left arm in a soft cast to immobilize his broken nonthrowing hand, the Villanova quarterback rallied his team to a 49-31 victory over James Madison in their Colonial Athletic Association opener. Robertson, who broke the hand in Week 2, finished 22-for-27 passing for 337 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in front of a crowd of 10,781.

AS OPENING statements go, it certainly was a loud one. If Temple's football team - which was coming off a 2-10 season - had won, 2-0, at Vanderbilt on Thursday night, it would have been a keeper. But the two-touchdown underdog Owls rolled, 37-7. The game in Nashville, Tenn., was supposed to start at 9:15 p.m. Philly time, but was delayed 1 hour, 37 minutes because of lightning and it didn't end until 2:14 a.m. here. Some debut for the SEC Network. For whatever reason, the NFL preseason game between the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings a few miles away wasn't interrupted.

NASHVILLE - A big rig with Jersey plates sat outside Vanderbilt Stadium, out on Natchez Trace. When college football teams go on the road, they take their program with them. Logistics are fine-tuned, contingencies planned for. When the rains came Thursday evening, Temple was ready. "We have a lightning plan that's in place. We bring all the food from the hotel in case we ever hit lightning," Temple football coach Matt Rhule was saying later, early Friday morning. There was no forecast, however, for what happened here.
