Defenseman Dan Girardi scored 3 minutes, 11 seconds into overtime to give the New York Rangers a stirring, 1-0 victory over the host New York Islanders on Saturday night in a game that felt every bit like a playoff matchup between the area rivals. Henrik Lundqvist and Islanders counterpart Evgeni Nabokov staged a classic goalie duel that seemed destined to go to a shootout, but Girardi finished off a rush by flipping a shot over Nabokov's shoulder for just his second goal of the season.

Brad Richards finished what Vincent Lecavalier started and the Tampa Bay Lightning swept its way to the conference finals for the first time. Richards scored his second straight game-winning goal in the second period and the Lightning beat the host Montreal Canadiens, 3-1, last night. Tampa Bay will play the winner of the Flyers-Toronto series in the conference finals. The Lightning never had advanced past the second round in its first 11 seasons. Fredrik Modin scored into an empty net with 55.3 seconds remaining for the Lightning, who have won seven straight playoff games since losing Game 2 to the Islanders in the first round.

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos will not make the trip to the Sochi Olympics to represent Canada, potentially opening a spot for Flyers captain Claude Giroux. Stamkos has not been cleared to return from a broken leg. He was one of 14 forwards selected for the Canadian team ahead of Giroux last month by executive director Steve Yzerman, who is also Tampa Bay's general manager. Giroux reiterated on Wednesday that he was "disappointed" by the decision but that he had moved past the snub.

This was once the place where the who's who of NHL goaltenders resided. Back when Kate Smith was the league's No. 1 anthemist even though she never actually sang the national anthem, the Flyers won consecutive Stanley Cups because Bernie Parent, with a full head of natural hair and an infinite amount of natural talent, was the best in the world at stopping pucks. Shortly after he called it quits, Pelle Lindbergh arrived from Sweden and willed the Flyers to a Stanley Cup Finals they might not otherwise have reached.

THE NHL suspended Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman 20 games on Wednesday for cross-checking a linesman during a game last week, the second-longest suspension in NHL history for abusing an official. Wideman was suspended for violating the league rule on physical abuse of officials after he struck linesman Don Henderson and knocked him down during the Flames' game against Nashville on Jan. 27. The 32-year-old will forfeit $564,516 in salary as a result of the suspension. Only Gordie Dwyer of the Tampa Bay Lightning, who was suspended 23 games in part for abuse of officials during an exhibition game in 2000, was suspended longer for such a violation.

The Flyers have a problem, and here's the twisted irony of it: If their general manager, Ron Hextall, were more impetuous and less focused on the team's long-term improvement - if the Flyers, that is, were to act more like the Flyers used to act - they might actually solve it. The problem is simple: The Flyers don't score goals. Ahead of their game Wednesday night in Washington against Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals, the Flyers ranked 29th out of the NHL's 30 teams this season in goals per game, at 2.24 - this, after ranking 22nd (2.62)

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, in their only Wells Fargo appearance of the season, will provide a major challenge for the Flyers on Wednesday. "They have great skills, great players and a very good power play," goalie Michal Neuvirth said after taking part in an optional practice Tuesday in Voorhees. "We have to make sure we don't spend too much time in the penalty box. " Starting goalie Steve Mason, who missed Monday's 1-0 win over Florida because of a family matter, will take part in Wednesday's morning skate, but the Flyers wouldn't say if we would play in the game.

WAYNE SIMMONDS said he tried not to watch much hockey when the Flyers' season ended nearly six months ago. But sometimes you can't help it. So he watched, like many others, as the Chicago Blackhawks topped the Tampa Bay Lightning and hoisted the Stanley Cup in June. "It feels like it's been an eternity," Simmonds said after yesterday's practice. "Going home early, not making the playoffs, you sit on your couch and try not to watch the other teams play. You end up watching them play.

NEW YORK - Flyers goalie Steve Mason looks ready for the regular season to begin, and he used Monday's exhibition at Madison Square Garden to fine-tune different aspects of his game. "I'm continuing to build on my reads out there, continuing to work on rebounds and puck placement and where you want the puck to go," he said before making his second start of the preseason, facing the New York Rangers. "Overall, I'm working on reading the game. Things happen so quickly, and when you haven't played games for a long time, you forget how quickly things can happen out there.

NEW YORK - Jon Cooper is the head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Jon Marchessault is a 24-year-old center who has appeared in two regular-season games and two postseason games for the Lightning. Jonathan Drouin is a 20-year-old left winger who was Tampa Bay's first-round draft pick in 2013 and scored four goals in 70 games as a rookie this season. Braydon Coburn is around these three men every day, and maybe it speaks to how fully he has assimilated himself into the Lightning's culture and environment since the Flyers traded him 21/2 months ago that, when he was asked Sunday to reflect on that trade, he misidentified the man who made it. "There's a new GM there in Jon Hextall," Coburn said after the Lightning, down one game to none to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference finals, practiced at Madison Square Garden.

CLAUDE GIROUX roared through the neutral zone and dished off to Jake Voracek inside the Tampa Bay Lightning zone. Time was running out - under 2 minutes to play - and the Flyers needed just one goal to remain undefeated in regulation in six straight games. Craig Berube had five forwards and Mark Streit on the ice, with goalie Steve Mason pulled for the extra attacker. Two of those five forwards are in the top five in the NHL in points. Another is in the top 10 in goals. Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri and Mark Messier could have been on the ice. Without execution, without crisp passing, there is no last-minute magic.

Defenseman Anthony DeAngelo said he came to the Wells Fargo Center countless times while he was living in Sewell as a Flyers fan. He moved to Iowa four years ago, and his goal of playing in the NHL only intensified. So it was fitting that he found out about his professional destination while in the Wells Fargo Center for Friday's first round of the NHL draft. DeAngelo was selected in the first round, 19th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning. He had 15 goals and 56 assists in 51 games for the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League this season.

NEW YORK - On the day before Vinny Lecavalier began his first playoff series with the Flyers, someone reminded him of an anniversary. It had been 10 years, Lecavalier was told, since he, Brad Richards, and Martin St. Louis won the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Those three were a sight to see back then. Lecavalier scored nine goals in those playoffs. Richards piled up 26 points in winning the Conn Smythe Trophy. St. Louis won the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer and the Hart Trophy as its MVP and added 24 points in 23 postseason games.
