A MAN whose 2012 tangle with police led to a grand-jury investigation of two high-ranking cops is back in the authorities' crosshairs. Police obtained a search warrant Saturday on the Oak Lane home of Rodney Handy Jr., 25, police sources said. Earlier in the day, cops had found Handy inside his white Toyota Avalon with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to his left foot and he was "uncooperative" with investigators, prompting police to seek the search warrant, the sources said.

* LAST MAN STANDING. 8 tonight, 6ABC. SOMETIMES MY body betrays me. I'm not oversharing here, I promise. I'm talking about the laughter that bubbled up two or three times while I watched the pilot for Tim Allen's new sitcom, "Last Man Standing," which premieres tonight in two back-to-back episodes on ABC. Two or three laughs might not seem like a lot, but when they're in reaction to something my conscious brain insists isn't funny,...

Camden Catholic, arguably South Jersey's most explosive baseball team, met one of the region's premier pitchers, Deptford senior righthander Sheldon Johnson, in yesterday's intriguing nonleague matchup. Advantage, Johnson. With a handful of major-league scouts watching, the hard-throwing Johnson limited Camden Catholic to three hits and one run while striking out 10 in six innings, leading host Deptford to a 5-3 victory. "I like the way he challenges hitters, the way he goes right after you and says, 'Here it is, try to hit it,' " Camden Catholic coach Bob Moffett said.

On the verge of giving away a big lead in what would have been a fifth consecutive loss, Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Tortorella called a timeout and gathered his players for a pep talk. The gist of his message? "We're playing well," center Tim Taylor recounted. "Control yourselves. " Tortorella then sent his club back onto the ice to finish off a victory. Vincent Lecavalier scored his 200th career goal and assisted on Martin St. Louis' 21st and 22nd of the season, helping the visiting Lightning build a big lead it nearly gave away before beating the Washington Capitals, 5-4, last night.

Dave Andreychuk has waited 22 years and labored through 1,759 games for this moment - a chance to win the Stanley Cup. Tonight, the Tampa Bay Lightning captain finally has a chance in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals at the St. Pete Times Forum. "I've been trying to stay composed through the whole thing," Andreychuk said after Saturday's 3-2 double-overtime win over the Flames in Calgary. "Deep down inside, there's a lot of emotion. A lot of emotion with the wins, the losses and overtimes.

Quite often during the playoffs, special teams are either the great equalizer or the decisive difference in a close series where neither team is truly in charge. Last night at the St. Pete Times Forum, special teams were the decisive difference between the Flyers being within one game of going to the Stanley Cup Finals and one game from elimination in the Eastern Conference finals. Three power-play goals catapulted the Lightning to a 4-2 victory in Game 5. Tampa can advance to its first-ever Cup final with a victory tomorrow night at the Wachovia Center.

Outside the Wachovia Center, Flyers fans were fueling up on expensive beer at the free block party, anticipating taking another step closer to the Stanley Cup Finals. A couple hours later, when the puck was dropped for the opening face-off for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, they were in full throat, confident they could rattle the team with virtually no playoff pedigree, the team still stewing in the juices of Monday's 6-2 blowout loss in Game 2. Actually, it was exactly the kind of atmosphere the Tampa Bay Lightning seem to relish these days.

A 13-goal game is fun only if you win. Both the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings agreed on that point, and only the host Rangers were smiling after they won a wide-open shootout, 7-6, last night. Mike York scored twice and Adam Graves had a goal and an assist, his first points after a 10-game drought, as the Rangers scored all of their goals in the first 17 shots they took at goalies Jamie Storr and Travis Scott. Theo Fleury scored his league co-leading 17th goal, Tim Taylor had a goal and an assist, and Brian Leetch had three assists for the Rangers, who have won two straight after alternating wins and losses in their last nine.

With only four games left and the playoffs all but out of reach for the third consecutive season, the New York Rangers fired general manager Neil Smith and coach John Muckler yesterday. Smith, in his 11th year as GM and president, was in charge when the Rangers won the 1994 Stanley Cup - ending a 54-year drought. But he has not come close to matching that success. The Rangers, who have the NHL's highest payroll at $61 million, are five points behind Buffalo in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Two coaches with Bishop Eustace roots have been named baseball coaches at Gloucester County high schools. Tim Taylor, a former third baseman at Eustace and Princeton University, is the new coach at Deptford. Marc Varalli has been named the coach at Clayton. Taylor, a 1994 graduate and former all-Ivy League baseball selection at Princeton, was the junior-varsity coach last year at Deptford. The year before, he served as an assistant to John Bush at Washington Township. He replaces Bill Hoskins, who had planned to take over the job for only last season to help the program in a transition year.
