PHILADELPHIA — When it became a near certainty the Flyers were going to lose Game 3 on Wednesday night, a Philadelphia fan sitting in the stands at the Wachovia Center tied up his orange playoff towel and did what his team had basically done.

When it comes to Milan Lucic, Monday night was the sort of evening Boston hockey fans have dreamed about since the big forward made his initial playoff mark against the Canadiens two years ago.

It is the afternoon on the first of May. The sun is shining, Boston is buzzing with spring and men are waking up on Saturday afternoon to mow their lawns for the first time of the year. So, do you know where you hockey team is?
