Ron Hextall scored the first legitimate goal by a goaltender in National Hockey League history Tuesday night at Philadelphia in the Flyers' 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins. With the Flyers holding a 4-2 lead and time running out, the Bruins removed their goaltender for a sixth attacker. Hextall, often criticized for coming too far out of the crease, retrieved the puck near the right faceoff circle. He shot the puck down the ice and into the empty net.

Sick, in this case, was not a bad thing. The Kings were giving kudos Monday to a former teammate, Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier , who was the man of the hour after his spirited fight against goalie Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night. "Sick," said Kings left wing Kyle Clifford , with the knowing smile of an enforcer. Said Kings defenseman Drew Doughty : "That was awesome. I texted him after and told him it was pretty sick. I always knew he [Bernier]

Ron Hextall, the colorful and controversial goaltender for the Philadelphia Flyers, subscribes to the theory that it's better to burn out than it is to rust. "I'd rather have 10 great years than 15 good years," he has said. "I'll go all out the next few years and if I burn out, then I'll burn out. That's our whole team. That's the way we are."

Flip-flopping more often than a fish out of water or a goaltender out of position, Philadelphia Flyer Coach Terry Murray will go back to goalie Ron Hextall tonight in an effort to keep the Detroit Red Wings from turning the Stanley Cup finals into a rout. In the latest of a bizarre series of goaltending switches, lineup changes and altered line combinations, Murray said Wednesday he will start Hextall "for the duration. . . . We're going to settle it down."

Exactly 10 years ago Saturday, Philadelphia Flyer goaltender Ron Hextall gave one of the most valiant performances of his career, losing the decisive game of the Stanley Cup finals but affirming his worthiness as the most valuable player in the playoffs. Back in the finals after a decade-long wait, Hextall was the most vulnerable player in the Detroit Red Wings' 4-2 victory in the series opener.

Bad time for a defection. Just at a juncture when the Americans were becoming blood brothers with the Soviets, and just as the Soviets were sitting down to smoke a peace pipe with the Chinese, the last thing the world needed was an international incident, particularly one instigated by some guy who makes his living playing ice hockey. Talk about your cold wars. We could understand a breaking of diplomatic relations between two superpowers over, oh, a spy who has been selling top-secret weapon blueprints, or over another of those FBI agents who gets romanced by a Moscow Mata Hari into turning over his top-secret bureau handbook.

How many replays are we going to have to see? How many times are we going to have to watch Ron Hextall flip the bloody puck into the air and follow it sliding down the ice into the Capitals' empty net? How many times are we going to have to listen to some bonehead gleefully exclaim that in the whole history of the NHL playoffs -- all 10,000 games' worth -- this was THE FIRST GOAL EVER BY A GOALIE!! I got up early Wednesday morning, turned on the TV and, no matter where I went, I couldn't get away from the replay.

A pre-game scuffle, some shoving at the end of periods, Ron Hextall's vicious chop to the legs of Oiler Kent Nilsson--these were all the byproducts of the bile and frustration the Philadelphia Flyers felt as they watched the disciplined Edmonton Oilers outskate and outshoot them, again Sunday night and take a commanding 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. The Oilers' 4-1 playoff victory in front of a sellout crowd was a dramatic fall from grace for the Flyers.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed goaltender Ron Hextall to a new multi-year contract. Terms of the agreement were not released by the team Tuesday. Hextall, 23, is struggling in his second National Hockey League season after winning the Vezina Trophy as the league's top goalie last season and recognitions as the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup finals, which the Flyers lost to the Edmonton Oilers. He has a 2-7-2 record with a 3.

They lost the chance to pick up two points in the standings but will the Kings lose a key member of their front office? Not yet. Reports trickled out late Saturday night that the Columbus Blue Jackets were interested in hiring Kings Assistant General Manager Ron Hextall , a highly regarded executive around the league. These rumors ranged from faintly credible to faintly ludicrous. Hextall was leaving the press box at Staples Center shortly after the Kings lost to Pittsburgh, 3-2, in a shootout, and was his usual accommodating self.
