Highs and Lows

HIGHS

VINNY LECAVALIER: Suddenly, the Lightning center is playing with vigor and skill. Next season, we hope to see that in the games that matter.

DOC RIVERS: Starting Patrick Ewing in likely his final game in New York was a nice gesture that shows why the Magic coach is beloved by players.

SAKU KOIVU: Diagnosed with stomach cancer in September, the Montreal Canadiens captain (and one their best players) returned Tuesday.

OTTAWA SENATORS: Assistant coach Roger Neilson was two games short of 1,000 victories when cancer forced him to resign as Flyers coach. With the playoffs clinched, Ottawa allowed him to coach the final two regular-season games.

MASTERS: You can rip tournament officials for a number of things, but TV coverage isn't one of them. The tournament has remained steadfastly loyal to golf fans and viewers, demanding the USA and CBS networks show only four minutes of advertising per hour of coverage. Golf clap.

LOWS

SETH GREENBERG: His flirtations with other jobs are less bothersome than his failure to deliver more basketball success at USF.

PHIL GARNER, RANDY SMITH: It's no surprise the Tigers' manager and general manager were fired after an 0-6 start. What's remarkable is each of them, with nine consecutive losing seasons (Garner with Milwaukee and Detroit, Smith with San Diego and Detroit) still had a big-league job at all.

JESUS COLOME: The pitches by the Rays reliever Thursday night at Baltimore were as groovy as Austin Powers, yielding six hits and eight runs (seven earned) in one-third of an inning -- a 189.00 ERA for that performance. Now he knows what it's like to pitch BP.
