DENVER -- It was a heck of a drive for a plate of pasta. Visiting friends in Colorado for the holidays, Mike Watts and his father decided on a whim to take a spin to the mountains for lunch. They made it to a Ruby Tuesday's about 60 miles west of Denver. Then the winds kicked up. Twenty-four hours later, they were still stranded. "It's a mess," groaned Watts, 20, speaking by phone from a shelter in the town of Silverthorne. Nearly 3,000 travelers were trapped in the high country from early Sunday evening through late yesterday after gusting winds - and the threat of avalanches - forced authorities to close a 70-mile stretch of the Interstate 70 highway.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils fired coach Kevin Constantine yesterday and replaced him with Pat Burns. Burns will be coaching his fourth NHL team. He said the Devils signed him to a long-term agreement, but wouldn't be specific on the contract's length. "I was wondering if I'd get back in the league," said Burns, who has also coached Montreal, Toronto and Boston. "I wish we were starting tomorrow morning, it will be a great challenge." Burns, 51, was fired by the Bruins in October 2000 and replaced with Mike Keenan.

It was June 30, 1992, when the Philadelphia Flyers gave up a bus-load of players, the Liberty Bell, draft choices, $15 million and a dozen full memberships to the Merion Country Club to the Quebec Nordiques for the rights to Eric Lindros.Ask anyone and they'll tell you it was a dynamite deal for the Flyers, with the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Lindros, in three seasons, scoring 1.4 points per game, winning MVP and All-Star plaudits and leading his team back into the playoffs after an absence of five years.
