There was a time when Ron Hextall would have made sure he was right in the middle of all the extracurriculars that made Game 5 such a crowd-pleaser. But Hextall, who logged more than 100 penalty minutes in each of three successive seasons, back in the old days, is nearly 32 now. And there was only one moment when he seemed close to joining the fun. It came with 9 minutes, 21 seconds left in the third period, the Flyers killing an unbelievable 8:38 Lightning power play. At least, it would have been an 8:38 power play had Tampa defenseman David Shaw not pancaked Hextall behind the net, dislodging his mask.

The Super Bowl took on a distinct Southern flavor yesterday as Miami, Atlanta and Tampa walked away with the NFL's title game for 1999 to 2001. NFL owners agreed that Miami will be the site of the 1999 game. Atlanta will have the 2000 game and Tampa, which had essentially been promised a Super Bowl by commissioner Paul Tagliabue after agreeing to build a stadium, will get the 2001 game. "I think Tampa made the owners aware that the city had made a great commitment to the NFL," Tagliabue said after the decision to award a third Super Bowl.

Bo knows enough about baseball to realize he's beating the odds. After all, products of lower-level Public League programs do not routinely earn starring roles for college teams with a national profile. Ernest "Bo" Donaldson left Simon Gratz High in 1991 as a righthanded pitcher with raw potential and much to learn. Now, he boasts a 7-2 record, a 1.41 earned run average and 98 strikeouts in 63 2/5 innings for the fifth-ranked Division II school in the country, the University of Tampa.

On Tuesday, Kelley's attorney Abbe Lowell released emails, telephone recordings and other material that he and Kelley say proves she never tried to exploit her friendship with Petraeus.

TAMPA, Fla. - For the first time in his young NHL career, Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere played a game in his home state of Florida on Friday night, facing the Lightning in Tampa. But Gostisbehere's real homecoming will take place Saturday night in Sunrise, Fla., where he will play against the team he grew up idolizing, the Panthers. Gostisbehere, one of the NHL's top rookies, grew up in Margate, Fla., about 10 minutes from the Panthers' arena, and he and his grandfather went to games with season tickets.

TAMPA, Fla. - The Flyers' much-maligned second power-play unit produced two goals Friday night to help end five years of frustration in Tampa. Flyers 3, Tampa 1. Sam Gagner, Matt Read, and Brayden Schenn scored goals and goalie Steve Mason played solidly as the surging Flyers ended an eight-game losing streak in Tampa since 2011. Claude Giroux was the only player in Friday's lineup who was with the team the last time it had beaten the Lightning on their home ice. The Flyers have won six of their last seven games, and they moved to within two points of Detroit for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

For the first time since he was dealt by Tampa Bay to the Flyers last year, rugged defenseman Radko Gudas faced the Lightning on Monday night. "I'm really excited about it," Gudas said before the 4-2 victory, adding that he needed to play controlled and, even after erupting for a career-best four points Saturday against Columbus, have a defense-first mentality. In reference to his offensive outburst, a smiling Gudas, who will never be compared to Bobby Orr for his skating or scoring ability, said, "The guys gave me a hard time for it, that's for sure.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On Sunday, the Phillies seek revenge. They will play the University of Tampa, a Division II school, in baseball's first exhibition game of the spring. And this time, the Phillies hope to win. They will start veteran Jeremy Hellickson - not a young pitcher - against the college kids. Tampa beat the Phillies, 6-2, last March. "We think he can handle the pressure," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin deadpanned. "We have to beat them. " All joking aside, it would not be a great look to lose to amateurs in two straight springs.

SAM BRADFORD watched Eagles practice Tuesday, wearing his red practice jersey over a black hooded sweatshirt. There was no word from the team about where the quarterback stands in relation to the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, but teammates said Bradford seemed fine to them. The NFL Network has reported that Bradford likely will miss Sunday's game against Tampa and the short-week Thanksgiving game in Detroit. Dennis Kelly, the right tackle who set too far upfield, allowing Miami linebacker Chris McCain to get inside him and slam Bradford to the turf Sunday, said he apologized to Bradford for what happened.

Bryan Robinson shot through the Tampa Bay offensive line just as quickly as it took quarterback Jason Boltus to take his second snap of the third quarter. With the Soul defensive lineman bearing down on him, Boltus kept his eyes downfield and shuffled backward to avoid the pursuit. But like all night, he had little to see. This time, he ran out of space, too. Robinson tackled him for a safety, highlighting a stellar defensive effort in Philadelphia's 64-42 win Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

MAYBE IT'S a good thing the Lightning didn't win the Stanley Cup. The Flyers would have had a firsthand, excruciating view of them raising the championship banner. While the full schedule is due out at 10 a.m. today, home openers were released yesterday and the Flyers' first regular-season game will be in Tampa on Thursday, Oct. 8. After a game at Florida two nights later, the Flyers will have their own home opener on Monday, Oct. 12 against the Panthers (7 p.m.). Florida, which is hosting this weekend's draft, is one of the rising teams in the NHL. It improved from 66 points in 2013-14 to 91 last season.

THE SOUL'S game next Friday at Tampa Bay has been pushed back a day because of an NHL playoff game. The NHL Lightning share the Amalie Arena with the Tampa Bay Storm and the hockey league has scheduled Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals for next Friday. It means an extra off day for the Soul, which are busing to Tampa following tomorrow night's game at Jacksonville. Lightning ownership, which also owns the Storm, will pick up an approximate $15,000 tab for the Soul having to change flights and stay another night in a hotel.

The Flyers will find out just how much progress they have made when they play host Tuesday to Steven Stamkos-led Tampa Bay, a team with legitimate Stanley Cup hopes. "They play a very fast game, maybe one of the fastest in the league," Flyers coach Craig Berube said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. "Stamkos is a huge threat, and they have good goaltending. . . . They're solid all around. " The Flyers have a five-game points streak (3-0-2), including wins over New Jersey and Carolina in their last two matchups.
