COLUMBUS - Backup goalie Ray Emery tried to take the blame for the Flyers' latest loss. "Any time we're giving up goals like we are, I look no further than myself," he said Thursday night after the Flyers dropped a 5-2 decision to streaking Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Truth be told, Emery played admirably. The veteran goalie, starting because Steve Mason had played the previous night, faced a shooting gallery and received little defensive support. Columbus, outworking the Flyers to loose pucks throughout the game, fired 39 shots and registered its eighth straight victory, a franchise record.

The Flyers looked as if they lost their game in a snow drift Wednesday night. They played listlessly, had little attack time, and dropped a 3-2 decision to Carolina at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers seemed a step behind the Hurricanes all night, and they suffered their third one-goal loss in three games against Carolina this season. Jiri Tlusty knocked in a juicy rebound with 6 minutes, 10 seconds left, snapping a 2-2 tie and giving Carolina the victory. The game was pushed to Wednesday because Tuesday's contest was postponed by the snow.

The Flyers continued their comeback ways on Saturday night and tied a team record in the process. Michael Raffl's goal from close range on a back pass from Claude Giroux with 4 minutes, 15 seconds left provided the game-winner in a 6-4 win over the New York Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center. Matt Read's empty-netter ended the scoring. Giroux had two spectacular third-period assists. "I don't know how he saw me, but he put it right on my blade," Raffl said. The Flyers entered the third period trailing by 4-3, but they tied the score on Jake Voracek's one-timer from the right circle off a backhand feed from Giroux with 12:46 to play.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS coach Barry Trotz was out of options. His team had not won a shootout this season (0-5). The traditionally low-scoring Predators had produced just one goal on 19 shootout attempts. And after Sean Couturier beat Carter Hutton for his first career shootout goal in an all-hands-on-deck skills competition, Trotz turned to a defenseman to keep Nashville alive. It worked. Both Couturier and Brayden Schenn gave the Flyers an opportunity to grab two full points, to walk away with their ninth third-period comeback win of the season, and their second in as many nights.

FOR A MOMENT in Buffalo on Tuesday night, Wayne Simmonds cheered when Scott Hartnell blocked a vicious slap shot. Hartnell's willingness to sacrifice his body prevented a scoring chance. It wasn't until Hartnell limped back to the bench and down the tunnel to the locker room that it hit Simmonds: That one shot could have cost him one-third of his red-hot line. "I was a little worried there," Simmonds said. "We've been thriving. The last thing you want is for one of the guys to go down.

BUFFALO - Jhonas Enroth stood in his crease in disbelief. With his stick laying on the ice to his right, he stared intently at the First Niagara Center video board, trying to get some glimpse as to how the Flyers finally solved him. Until that point, with 6:32 to play in the third period last night, he was single-handedly willing his team to two points. That's when Brayden Schenn was the recipient of a fortunate bounce. Andrej Meszaros' point shot bounced off the boards to Enroth's right, took a strange angle and found Schenn at the far post with a wide-open net. It was an especially auspicious angle for the Flyers, one that you would have tested out in geometry class using a mirror.

IT HAS BEEN 65 days since an NHL team not from Pennsylvania won inside the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. That date? Nov. 7 - when the Devils shut out the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center. It was the Flyers, who are shooting for their 11th consecutive regulation win at home this afternoon against Tampa Bay, who last beat the Penguins in Pittsburgh on Nov. 13. The Penguins have won 12 straight at home since their loss to the Flyers. They have lost only three times in Pittsburgh (19-3-0)

It wasn't too long ago that Flyers fans were routinely booing the home team and chanting for the general manager to be fired. Remember? Ah, that was in October and early November, back when the Flyers won just two of their first nine games at the mostly quiet Wells Fargo Center. Since then, they are 10-0 at home, with all of the victories in regulation. The fans are cheering again. "The energy at home is unbelievable right now," winger Zac Rinaldo said. "We're just taking advantage of an intimidating building to play in," said goalie Steve Mason, whose team will host dangerous Tampa Bay at 1 p.m. Saturday.

ZAC RINALDO crossed the top of the Canadiens' circle and let a wrist shot go. Rinaldo said his initial thought was: "I was praying that puck came back to me. " His second thought was: "Sometimes, I watch clips of myself and I think, 'Why didn't you hold onto the puck more?' or 'Why didn't you shoot it there?' Watching myself makes me realize I can hold onto the puck a lot more than I think and shoot. " Rinaldo got his second chance. He wasn't about to squander it. Rinaldo crammed his first career game-winning goal, a game-high four shots, a crowd-captivating fight and two hits into just 4 minutes and 53 seconds of ice time, powering the Flyers to a rather easy 3-1 victory over the visiting Canadiens last night.

You know things are going well when winger Zac Rinaldo - who is known for his feistiness, not his goal-scoring ability - backhands a shot that caroms off an opponent's stick and into the net. You know things are going well when one of your defensemen, Andrej Meszaros, collects his third assist of the night before the game is half over. You know things are going well when your team hasn't lost at home in more than two months. Welcome to Flyers hockey. The Flyers won their 10th straight home game Wednesday night, defeating the Montreal Canadiens, 3-1, and continuing their amazing climb from the abyss.
