Surprise scorer wins it for Flyers

PHILADELPHIA — Dan Carcillo, who had 12 goals and 207 penalty minutes during the regular season, scored 3:35 into overtime Sunday to give the Flyers a 3-2 victory over the Devils and 2-1 series lead.

Carcillo knocked a rebound of Mike Richards' shot past Martin Brodeur five seconds after a power play expired.

"I'm still kind of shaking," Carcillo said. "Everybody dreams of a goal like that."

Brodeur, who has won three Cups and four Vezinas, fell to 12-21 in overtime playoff games.

Modano undecided about retirement

FORT WORTH, Texas — The Stars' Mike Modano said he will take some time before deciding whether to retire. The center, who turns 40 in June, just completed his 20th season.

"It's really hard," said Modano, the top U.S.-born goal-scorer in league history. "I'm really kind of on the fence right now. It's tough. And then you watch some of the playoffs, watch some of those games, and it's like those are the things that you miss."
