Michael J. Fox drew a standing ovation in Worchester, Mass., yesterday, when he took to the ice and participated in a benefit hockey game in honor of six firefighters killed last Dec. 3 in a warehouse fire. Comedian-actor Denis Leary, whose cousin, Jeremiah Lucey, was one of those lost in the blaze, organized the event, which raised $200,000 and pitted the Hollywood Hockey Team against the Boston Bruins Alumni. (Boston took the game, 15-14.) Besides Fox, who is battling Parkinson's disease and reportedly only played for brief periods at a time, the celebs included Elizabeth Hurley, "Party of Five" actor Scot Wolf, Tim Robbins, "Cheers" star George Wendt and onetime Boston Bruins star Bobby Orr. Hurley, a hockey neophyte, took to the ice in a purple outfit that got a rise from the crowd. "I feel guilty I didn't study more," Hurley, who also acted as assistant coach, told the Associated Press. "Next time, I may even learn to skate."
