HOURS AFTER trading Scott Hartnell to Columbus yesterday for R.J. Umberger, the Flyers announced they agreed to terms on a 2-year contract extension with Brayden Schenn. The team, per its policy, did not disclose financial terms of the deal, but according to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the extension is worth an average of $2.5 million per year. Earlier in the offseason, general manager Ron Hextall said he regarded re-signing Schenn as a top priority. The 22-year-old center was set to become a restricted free agent when free agency begins on July 1. "I'm happy with the deal I got," Schenn said yesterday evening on a conference call with reporters.

BORN IN Canada three years and four days apart, traded from the Kings to the Flyers on the same day this June, new-to-us Brayden Schenn (left), a center, and Wayne Simmonds (right), a winger, celebrate their b-days this week. Today Schenn slap-shots 20 (no Molson for you!). On Friday "Simmer" hat-tricks 23. The two still may be making their way to town - training camp starts in three weeks. But soon the former Kings will be princes of Philly, or at least studs of South Jersey. High above the ice, next year's stars will shine bright for Schenn, who'll dig his new home - and a certain lady friend.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - In the first three-plus weeks of the season, the Flyers have been maddeningly inconsistent and have rarely put together three strong periods. Tuesday was an exception. The Flyers finally played well in all three zones in each period, and the result was a much-needed, 3-2 win over Winnipeg, a victory that ended their four-game road losing streak. "What I liked about it was it was 60 minutes of a committed hockey team that went out to win a game to keep us moving in the right direction," coach Peter Laviolette said after the Flyers improved to 2-6 on the road.

UNDER THE television and near where the Flyers' resident DJ selects tunes to be blared in the dressing room, there is a conspicuous sign posted to the right of the smart board where Craig Berube draws up plays. It reads: "No one is bigger than the team. If you can't do things our way, you won't get time here. AND WE DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE. " In a seemingly lost season, even after the Flyers won their third game in a row last night, few players have embodied that "team" mentality more than Brayden Schenn.

TURNS OUT, the chain around Brayden Schenn's neck was more choker collar than leash - given how quickly and how hard it was yanked by Craig Berube last week. Schenn's experiment on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek did not last five full periods during the regular season. He was pulled from the line during the second period of last Thursday's loss to New Jersey. It wasn't just a momentary shake-up, either. When the puck dropped on Saturday night against Montreal, it was Michael Raffl flanked to Giroux's left for the opening draw.

On their car rides to the hockey rink earlier this season, forward Brayden Schenn tried to keep his brother, Luke, in a positive mind-set after the defenseman was a healthy scratch for three straight games. Now it's Luke's turn to pump up his brother. Entering Tuesday's matchup against visiting Washington, Brayden Schenn had been held without a goal in his last 11 games. "We've always had each other's backs," Luke Schenn said Tuesday after the morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center.

The stars seemed aligned for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn this season. He was healthy after an injury-plagued 2011-12 season and was ecstatic to be reunited with his older brother, Luke. In addition, he figured to have a carryover effect from a strong second half of his rookie year. The NHL lockout, however, has Schenn's projected breakout season on hold. Schenn, 21, is one of several Flyers who are in training camp with the AHL Adirondack Phantoms because of the lockout.

Flyers center Brayden Schenn was relieved Wednesday after surviving a nasty hit from Washington's Tom Wilson during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the visiting Capitals. Skating at full speed, Wilson hit Schenn, whose head crashed into the boards. Schenn needed to be helped off the ice. He said he has a stiff upper back and neck from the incident. "I feel good, better than I thought," Schenn said after he sat out Wednesday's optional practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. According to general manager Paul Holmgren, a formal concussion test was not needed after a preliminary evaluation.

EDMONTON, Alberta - Just when it seemed the Flyers' season couldn't possibly get any worse . . . They blew a two-goal lead and lost to one of the NHL's bottom-feeders, Edmonton, Saturday night at Rexall Place. Ryan-Nugent Hopkins knocked in a juicy rebound allowed by backup goalie Ray Emery - the emergency starter because Steve Mason was ill - with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left in overtime, giving the Oilers a 5-4 victory. If the NHL had a mercy rule, surely the Flyers would be declared losers and the rest of their season canceled.

VANCOUVER - Flyers captain Claude Giroux says shootouts are "mind games" between the shooter and the goalie. If so, perhaps Flyers shooters are overthinking the process and need to start relying on their instincts in the breakaway competition. No matter how much time they spend on it in practices, the Flyers struggle mightily when games reach the dreaded shootout. Sunday night was the latest example. The Flyers played a solid road game but dropped a 2-1 shootout in Ottawa. That made them 3-9 in shootouts this season and an NHL-worst 30-60 since the rule was adopted in 2005-06.

Eleven seconds into the third period, hundreds of hats were thrown onto the ice after Flyers center Brayden Schenn apparently scored the first hat trick of his career. As it turned out, Schenn will have to wait to accomplish the feat. The fans didn't seem to mind. They got to watch the Flyers continue their surprising domination of the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. Flyers 7, Red Wings 2. Seconds after Schenn scored his "third" goal, Lou Nolan announced that his first goal had been changed and was being credited to Wayne Simmonds.

ST. LOUIS - Ron Hextall listened to the question and swallowed hard. Will the Flyers begin to give younger players and unknown commodity prospects a shot at playing in the NHL over the next 31 days? "Our goal is still to make the playoffs," Hextall responded. "Until we're officially out, that will continue to be our goal. " In his heart of hearts, there has to be a difference between what Hextall says publicly and what he truly believes. He is a numbers guy, someone who has studied the analytics.

Defenseman Nick Grossmann, who has missed the last four games with head and shoulder injuries, may return to action Tuesday when the Flyers host his former team, the Dallas Stars. "There's an outside chance," said general manager Ron Hextall, noting that Grossmann skated at the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees on Monday. Before trading Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn, the Flyers were overloaded with defensemen. But their blue line is thin because of injuries to Grossmann and Michael Del Zotto, who will miss about another week.

The Flyers might have trouble beating sub-.500 teams, but they continue to be competitive against playoff-bound squads. For the third game in a row, the Flyers earned points against a team in line for the postseason with a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers are four points behind the Boston Bruins for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. That brings added significance to Saturday's game in Boston. After falling to subpar teams Carolina and Toronto, the Flyers beat the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers, on Saturday, suffered an overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday and beat the Blues, who are third in the Western Conference.

RON HEXTALL said he wouldn't scrap the Flyers' young talent at the trade deadline and he was true to his word. That doesn't mean, however, that all of them will be around when the prospects already in the system and those who will join them via the draft develop into NHL players. In fact, one of the determinations facing Hextall this summer is who qualifies as young and who doesn't. Who still has unrealized potential and who has done as much as they're going to do in an NHL uniform?

TORONTO - The Flyers dominated the game, but couldn't finish enough of their numerous scoring chances Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre. That's the abridged version of the team's latest failure to beat one of the NHL's worst teams. Toronto 3, Flyers 2. The Flyers lost despite having 49 shots on goal to the Maple Leafs' 17. "We did a lot of good things. We put pucks on net," said captain Claude Giroux, who had Jake Voracek back on his line in the second half of the game.

TORONTO - If the death of the Flyers' playoff chances was greatly exaggerated in December, or even at the All-Star break a month ago, it almost surely is not now. Losing back-to-back games to two of the worst teams in hockey - teams that aren't even necessarily trying to win - will do that. The Maple Leafs and Hurricanes are more interested in pingpong balls for draft stud Connor McDavid than meaningless points in the dog days of the season. Last night was a little different than Tuesday in Carolina, or even the two abysmal letdowns last week.

TORONTO - Despite their inexplicable ineptness against teams beneath them in the standings, the Flyers have inched back into the Eastern Conference playoff race by collecting points in 12 of their last 14 games. The team's improved play has coincided with the insertion of Ryan White into the lineup. The big boss, Ed Snider, has noticed. "We've got a lot of nice new pieces. I think this White has added a lot to our team," Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, said last week.
