PHILADELPHIA - To a mixture of boos and cheers, Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin dropped the ceremonial first puck at the Philadelphia Flyers' home opener against the New York Rangers.

The Alaska governor heard a few boos when she walked onto the ice Saturday night. But that soon turned to polite applause as she walked out to centre ice with Mike Richards of the Flyers and Scott Gomez - from Alaska - of the Rangers.

Palin waved to the crowd and smiled as she dropped the puck to applause and cheers.
