Comfortably ensconced in airline-style seats on a new express train, my wife and I sped into downtown Toronto from a futuristic new terminal at the city's international airport. What we saw was promising: dreary outer suburbs gave way to skyscraping forests of gleaming glass condo and office towers. Perhaps, we thought, considering the spectacular airport, the train (which offered the services of an onboard attendant), and all the new construction, everything we'd heard about Toronto's renaissance was true, that it was, indeed, the world's newest great city, having already supplanted Chicago as the third-largest city in the United States and Canada and become the fourth-largest in North America (after Mexico City, New York, and Los Angeles)

Looking to solidify their goaltending, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. Bernier had been stuck behind Jonathan Quick in Los Angeles. The Maple Leafs, according to general manager Dave Nonis, were interested in upgrades at any position. "I think it's incumbent upon every team to look at what's available, and if there is an ability to improve, you look to do it," Nonis said last week after the GMs' meetings in Boston. The Kings had approached the Flyers about Bernier, but the sides never got close to a deal, according to a league source.

James van Riemsdyk scored two goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs past the visiting Buffalo Sabres, 3-1, on Thursday night, spoiling the NHL head coaching debut of Ron Rolston. Rolston, who until Wednesday was the head coach of the AHL's Rochester Americans, was hired as the Sabres interim coach following the club's decision to fire Lindy Ruff. Van Riemsdyk's power-play goal at 14 minutes, 28 seconds of the third - the ex-Flyer's team-leading 11th - gave Toronto breathing room after Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller stopped Van Riemsdyk with a glove save earlier.

A PERSON familiar with the NHL's plan said the Detroit Red Wings will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2013 Winter Classic. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity yesterday because the league isn't expected to announce the matchup until today. Earlier yesterday, the University of Michigan Board of Regents authorized the athletic department to seek a contract with the NHL that would allow the league to hold next year's showcase at Michigan Stadium. The recommendation also said the Winter Classic would be scheduled for Jan. 1, 2013, with an alternate date of Jan. 2. Buffalo, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia have all hosted the Winter Classic, but a game at Michigan Stadium could draw the league's largest crowd.

JAKE VORACEK is trying. Really, really trying. He's trying so hard out there that he's picking up penalties, running himself out of position, forcing out passes that create opportunities for the other team. What's the polar opposite of a Gordie Howe hat trick? That's what Voracek had going in Thursday night's debilitating, 4-3 overtime loss to the NHL's worst team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was part of blown coverage on the Leafs' first goal, leaving William Nylander alone with half a net to shoot at. Later, a flutter shot into traffic sprung Colin Greening for a breakaway and a 2-0, first-period lead.

LOS ANGELES - Vinny Lecavalier has spent the last 17 seasons in the NHL, but when he stepped inside the Los Angeles Kings' practice facility for the first time, he felt as if he was starting over. "I don't know anybody really personally," Lecavalier said Thursday at the Staples Center before the Kings played the Toronto Maple Leafs. "It feels like the first day of school. It's exciting. " Like most trades, the deal that sent Lecavlier and defenseman Brayden Schenn from the Flyers to the Kings brought new faces and different playing styles.

TORONTO - Despite their inexplicable ineptness against teams beneath them in the standings, the Flyers have inched back into the Eastern Conference playoff race by collecting points in 12 of their last 14 games. The team's improved play has coincided with the insertion of Ryan White into the lineup. The big boss, Ed Snider, has noticed. "We've got a lot of nice new pieces. I think this White has added a lot to our team," Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, said last week.

Playing against a team in the midst of another collapsing season, the Flyers were outshot by 12 attempts. All-stars Jake Voracek and Claude Giroux, two of the NHL's top scorers, combined to muster only one shot. But the Flyers exited the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night with their first 1-0 victory of the season because of Steve Mason. The 26-year-old goaltender turned away each of the Toronto Maple Leafs' 30 shots en route to his 25th NHL shutout. "Without him, I don't think we would've won the game," defenseman Luke Schenn said.

TORONTO - The Flyers started an eight-game road trip with an inspiring comeback and their best offensive performance of the season Saturday night. Claude Giroux had two goals and a pair of assists, Jake Voracek dealt four assists and took over the NHL scoring lead, and the Flyers overcame an early 2-0 deficit and defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs, 7-4, at the Air Canada Centre. "It was fun because we were playing the right way the whole game, and we played 60 minutes," said Giroux, whose team had a 42-25 advantage in shots.

Veteran defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, who signed with the Flyers on Friday, says he feels well prepared to make his debut with his latest team on Tuesday against the visiting Edmonton Oilers. During practice Monday at the Skate Zone, Colaiacovo was paired with Luke Schenn, a former Toronto Maple Leafs teammate for part of the 2008-09 season. Colaiacovo also worked on the second power-play unit. "I have been putting in a lot of work the last few days, making sure my legs feel good, my body feels good," Colaiacovo, 31, said after practice.

BOSTON - He has a seat on the Flyers' chartered plane. He attends every practice - even the two in Cape Cod last weekend - and usually sits alone. He doesn't spend much time around the locker room. He is always sharply dressed, wearing a suit, and his strawberry blond hair is neatly coiffed. He is not a coach. He is not part of the medical or public relations staff. He does not carry equipment bags or massage players' sore shoulders. In fact, the only hint that he works for the team is that he carries a computer bag emblazoned with the Flyers logo.

WAYNE SIMMONDS could tell something was a different with Claude Giroux yesterday. He was a little more quiet than usual. After being conspicuously absent during Wednesday's romp by the Rangers, save for a last-minute assist that only prevented another Henrik Lundqvist shutout, Giroux was just a tad more focused than he's been during this concentrated turnaround. With the Toronto Maple Leafs as a perfect reminder of what could happen when two losses turns to three, Giroux wanted to right the ship.
