He was not so presumptuous as to be certain he was going to win, but Bob Froese knew exactly what he was going to say if he did. "I remember Pelle thanking Bernie Parent when he won the Vezina a year ago," Froese said. "I was going to thank Pelle Lindbergh for setting a standard for me. " Despite the blindness of five National Hockey League general managers, Froese lived up to that standard this season, too. Though he tied for the league lead in victories (31) and recorded far and away the league's best goals against average (2.55)

Joel Ward slammed home a rebound at the 2 minutes, 57 seconds of overtime to give the Capitals a 2-1 victory over the host Boston Bruins on Wednesday night as Washington advanced to the second round of the playoffs and ended the defending Stanley Cup champions' hopes of a repeat. Rookie Braden Holtby stopped 31 shots for Washington in Game 7 - the seventh one-goal game of the series. It was the first time in NHL history that a playoff series had seven games determined by one goal.

The nominees for various NHL awards, announced yesterday, leave little doubt about what kind of season the Flyers had. Eric Lindros was nominated for the league MVP award, the Hart Trophy, and coach Terry Murray is up for the Adams Trophy, which goes to the NHL's top coach. Lindros's competition will be Pittsburgh's Jaromir Jagr, the league's top scorer, and Buffalo goaltender Dominik Hasek. Murray, in his first year as Flyers coach, has some stiff competition: Detroit's Scotty Bowman and Quebec's Marc Crawford.

Nobody has ever denied that Flyers goalie Bob Froese has great statistics, but people handing out awards don't always base their votes on statistics. So Froese, despite having the best goals-against average in the NHL this season, may not win the Vezina Trophy, which will be awarded June 10 to the league's top goalie, as voted by the 21 general managers. However, there are some awards that are based on the unbiased statistics, and that is why there was no question that Froese would be here yesterday to receive the Jennings Trophy, which is awarded to the goalies on the NHL club finishing the regular season with the best goals-against average.

The NHL will hold a hearing next week to decide whether to take disciplinary action against Flyers goaltender Ron Hextall, a league spokeswoman said yesterday. Hextall left his goal crease in the Flyers' game against Montreal Thursday night and attacked Canadiens defenseman Chris Chelios, sparking a brawl in the closing minutes of the Wales Conference final game. Hextall was given a major and a match penalty by referee Don Koharski. NHL vice-president Brian O'Neill discussed the incident yesterday with officials and was waiting to receive videotape of the game, the spokeswoman said.

Flyers captain Mike Richards will be in Las Vegas tonight for the NHL awards ceremony. Richards is a finalist for the Selke Trophy, given to the top defensive forward. Richards was a plus-22 this season and led the league with seven shorthanded goals. The other finalists are Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk, who was last year's winner, and Vancouver's Ryan Kesler. Datsyuk is also a finalist for the Hart Trophy, given to the NHL's most valuable player. Washington's Alexander Ovechkin is attempting to become the first repeat MVP since Dominik Hasek in 1997-98.

Dusting off my crystal ball to help give the NHL season some perspective, here are some predictions: Champions Atlantic Division: Pittsburgh (Even if Sidney Crosby is in and out of the lineup.) Northeast: Buffalo (Even though it grossly overpaid for talented forward Ville Leino.) Southeast: Washington (Even though Tampa Bay is formidable.) Central: Chicago (Even though Detroit is, well, Detroit.) Northwest: Vancouver (Even the, um, worst prognosticators would get this one right.)

BOB CLARKE has been Eric Lindros' biggest advocate for an invitation to the Hockey Hall of Fame for years. But even Clarke, now part of the Hall's 18-member selection committee for the first time, might not be able to swing enough votes to avoid his controversial former superstar being passed over for the fifth straight summer. The Hockey Hall of Fame will announce its induction class of 2014 this afternoon in Toronto. This year's first-ballot group - full of Philadelphia connections - may be powerful enough to bump Lindros again.

Craig Berube did not have a plan with respect to his two goaltenders, Steve Mason and Ray Emery, as much as he had a philosophy. It is good that he did. Emery appeared in two games for the Flyers in February and two in March. Thursday night's playoff opener against the Rangers, when he starts in place of Mason, will be Emery's fifth game already in April, and the month will be just 17 days old. Part of this escalation was because in March, Emery suffered a lower-body injury (not to be confused with the mysterious "upper-body injury" that will keep Mason out of the lineup)

CLAUDE GIROUX remembers his first goal against Martin Brodeur as a little different than the 113 others he has scored in his 398-game NHL career. The date was Dec. 12, 2009 - part of his first full season in the league - and he used a power-play pass from one future Hall of Famer, Chris Pronger, to beat another in Brodeur. "I think I was a little bit more proud," Giroux said. "He is one of the best goalies I've ever played. " Giroux and the rest of the Flyers are running out of chances to beat him again.

OVER THE NEXT 2 days, the NHL will hand out its regular-season award winners for this season. Flyers beat writer Frank Seravalli, as a member of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, votes on all of the top awards. Here are his nominees and who he picked, in order: HART MEMORIAL TROPHY (Most valuable player to his team) 1. Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh 2. John Tavares, N.Y. Islanders 3. Jonathan Toews, Chicago The reason: By the letter of the award, it should probably go to Tavares, since the Islanders didn't have a prayer for the playoffs without him. But the Hart has always been about the league's top player, and it is tough to argue that anyone other than Crosby should win it. He played 12 fewer games than everyone else and finished just four points back of the scoring lead.

HENRIK LUNDQVIST slammed his stick in disgust when an overtime loss in Washington put the New York Rangers on the brink of elimination. Two days later, the star goalie pumped his arm and let out an emphatic yell when his shutout kept the Rangers alive and set up a Game 7 in the nation's capital. Lundqvist was the difference yesterday in stopping 27 shots for his seventh NHL playoff shutout. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner was perfect in making Derick Brassard's second-period goal stand up in a 1-0 victory over the visiting Capitals that forced a deciding game tonight in the first-round, Eastern Conference series.
