Directed by Guy Maddin. With Darcy Fehr, Ann Savage and Amy Stewart. Distributed by IFC Films. 1 hour, 20 mins. No MPAA rating (creepy imagery, profanity, adult themes). Playing at: Ritz at the Bourse. Fans of Guy Maddin, the Canadian purveyor of irreverently surreal little pictures that look and feel as if they sprang from a forgotten era, a parallel universe, just need to know that My Winnipeg is here - and they're there. For the uninitiated, however, I heartily recommend this free-associative, autobiographical gem. Commissioned by Canadian TV's Documentary Channel, the film is what Maddin calls a "docu-fantasia" - a skewed memory piece about the town where Maddin grew up, a Winnipeg with real street names and real edifices, but melded with a dreamscape of jarring images (dead horses trapped in the frozen river for an entire winter)

The NHL returned to Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a cold reminder of the challenge that lies ahead. Carey Price stopped 30 shots and the Montreal Canadiens put a damper on a massive civic celebration with a 5-1 victory over the Jets on Sunday. The return of big-league hockey to the city had fans celebrating in the streets hours before the puck was dropped and horns honking outside the MTS Centre throughout the afternoon. Virtually everyone was decked out in Jets gear - both new and old. With so much of the focus on the anticipation surrounding the NHL's return after 15 years, the performance of the team itself almost seemed secondary.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Toward the end of the American national anthem on Tuesday night, there was a smattering of boos echoing throughout the cozy MTS Centre. No, Jets fans were not expressing their satisfaction with their less hockey-mad neighbors to the south. The video board, instead, was showing Ilya Bryzgalov standing in the Flyers' crease. Bryzgalov is still Public Enemy No. 1 in Winnipeg for the disparaging remarks he made about hockey's smallest market nearly 3 years ago. His Phoenix Coyotes, long in financial straits, were rumored to be returning back to the city from which they came in 1996.

When the trade was announced last August, it hardly shook the hockey world to its foundation. After all, Montreal's dealing goalie Steve Penney to Winnipeg for goalie Brian Hayward looked like a fair exchange of sieves. At the time, the trade appeared to be little more than an obscure item on that day's list of sports transactions. "I remember reading in the Montreal newspapers that the Canadiens had just gotten a backup goalie who would play maybe 15, 20 games at the most.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - The Flyers, their patchwork lineup held together by minor-league call-ups, adhesive tape and (waiver) wire, have overcome a slew of injuries and are on their longest winning streak of the season. Somehow. Winners of four straight, the Flyers (17-17-3) can climb over .500 for the first time this year with a victory over the free-falling Jets (18-19-2 ) in Winnipeg on Saturday afternoon. The Flyers are three points out of an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Winnipeg-bound? The Ice Edge group is back in the picture as a potential buyer for the Phoenix Coyotes. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Ice Edge has resumed talks with the city of Glendale, Ariz., over a lease agreement. The Glendale City Council had rejected Ice Edge's proposal and approved an agreement with a group headed by Chicago sports mogul Jerry Reinsdorf. Daly would not comment on reports that the NHL was preparing to possibly move the team back to Winnipeg.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Flyers goalie Steve Mason, unable to start Thursday because he was ill, took part in a full practice Friday, but hinted he won't be ready for Saturday's game in Winnipeg. Mason said it would have been "tough" if he had to play Thursday - the Flyers lost in overtime in Calgary, 2-1 - and that he was feeling a little better, but he left doubts about facing the Jets. "I'd like to play . . . but at the same time, I haven't really played a lot of hockey in the last little while and it might be good to get some practice time under my belt as well," he said.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Rick Rypien was scheduled to fly to Winnipeg on Sunday night to have his knee checked out. He left a message for a Jets official that morning asking whether there was ice he could skate on. But he never boarded the flight. Rypien had been dealing with depression for at least a decade, said Jets assistant general manager Craig Heisinger, who was the GM of the Manitoba Moose when Rypien played for the AHL team. The 27-year-old former Vancouver Canuck was found dead in his Alberta home Monday.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov hurt his glove hand while making a save during the morning skate, but X-rays found no problems and he was able to start Tuesday night's game in Winnipeg. Bryzgalov left the ice when the puck struck his hand, which became red. Later, he was back in the net and serenaded with mocking Illllllyaaaaaa chants by Winnipeg fans. They are still upset about the negative comments Bryzgalov made about their city when it appeared that his former team, Phoenix, might move to Winnipeg.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Funny how timing can mean everything to a hockey team. If the Flyers had started their five-game road trip by beating Buffalo and then lost four straight, it would have been perceived as a disastrous journey. But as it turned out, the Flyers lost their first four games and ended the grueling trip with their best effort since they defeated the powerful Rangers two weeks ago. They received a lights-out performance from Michal Neuvirth (again) on Saturday and defeated a good Winnipeg team, 3-0, at the earsplitting MTS Centre.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Michal Neuvirth is making a strong bid to be the Flyers' No. 1 goaltender. Neuvirth made 28 saves and collected his third shutout - tops in the NHL - as the Flyers blanked Winnipeg, 3-0, at the MTS Centre on Saturday night. He became the first goalie in franchise history with three shutouts in his first seven starts of a season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. "We played a real solid game, and it started with the goaltender," said winger Wayne Simmonds, who scored the second goal, helping the Flyers end a six-game losing streak.

If the Flyers have any chance to make a nearly impossible climb to a playoff spot, they need Steve Mason to be his healthy, reliable self. That's what made the 26-year-old goalie's return so encouraging Tuesday. Mason, who missed the previous six games with an injured right knee, relieved a shaky Ray Emery and stopped 22 of 23 shots - and was successful on all three shootout attempts - as the Flyers overcame a two-goal deficit and outlasted Arizona, 4-3, at the Wells Fargo Center.

IF CRAIG BERUBE'S lack of confidence in backup Ray Emery was not on full display last week, when Steve Mason injured and reinjured himself in three consecutive games and did not receive any relief, it reached a new low last night. With Mason likely sidelined until after the All-Star break, Berube opted not for Emery but journeyman Rob Zepp to make his second career start against the Eastern Conference-leading Lightning. "I liked [Zepp's] energy and we're going to need energy tonight," Berube said after the team's morning skate.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - As Rob Zepp packed his bags and prepared to leave the Flyers yesterday in the desert, he did so with the ability to finally answer a few questions: Will I ever make it to the NHL? Am I good enough to get there? No question was as satisfying to answer, though, as the one that came repeatedly from his 5-year-old son Gavin since the Zepp family relocated to Lansdale, Pa., this fall after a decade chasing pucks in Europe: "Daddy, when are you going to play for the Flyers?"

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Michael Del Zotto, one of the Flyers' best defensemen earlier in the season, was a healthy scratch for the sixth consecutive game Sunday in Winnipeg. Coach Craig Berube said he doesn't want Del Zotto to get down on himself; last year, he was a healthy scratch at times with the New York Rangers and Nashville. "It's hard. I talked to him a few times," Berube said before the Flyers faced the Jets. "He's worked really hard, though, which is a real good sign. I do worry about it. I've got to try to keep him mentally focused.

SCOTT HARTNELL'S alarm went off at 7:15 a.m., setting off a mad dash to the Wells Fargo Center. He was a tad late getting to the arena, compared with his normal arrival time, since he said he had to pack a few last-minute items for the Flyers' 6,881-mile road trip, which won't bring them back to Philadelphia until Dec. 12. "It was a little bit hectic," Hartnell with a smile. Before leaving his house, Hartnell stopped on his Old City balcony to snap a picture of the sun glistening off the Delaware River and Ben Franklin Bridge on a brisk November morning.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Craig Berube held his breath. Even after toppling Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Berube knew the real test of the Flyers' road trip was still to come. "It's just a game, boys," Berube said that night. "We've got a long way to go. " It's easy to get geared up for the hated Penguins in a nationally televised grudge match. It's another thing entirely to get juiced for a mediocre Jets team, playing your third road game in four nights in the middle of the Canadian prairies.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Flyers coach Craig Berube is gaining trust in winger Zac Rinaldo. That was evident when Berube, for the first time this season, used Rinaldo on the penalty kill during a critical time in a game Wednesday. "I'm excited about it," Rinaldo said, before playing a career-high on the penalty kill in Friday's game in Winnipeg. "The more responsibility, the better for me. " Rinaldo was used for 1 minute, 9 seconds on the penalty kill in Wednesday's 2-1 win in Pittsburgh.
