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.

FIVE YEARS AGO, a wrecking ball tore a hole through the brick and mortar of the Spectrum - tearing down nearly 40 years worth of dusty Flyers and Sixers memories. On the periphery, the demolition of America's Showplace left the Flyers' top minor league affiliate in need of a new home after an impressive 13-year run across the street from the big club. That wrecking ball left the Phantoms' franchise in shambles. They've yet to recover. The Phantoms will play their final home game in Glens Falls, N.Y., this Friday to mercifully end the most embarrassing era of minor league production in the Flyers' 47-year history.

PITTSBURGH — Brayden Schenn was floating on a glass-smooth Shell Lake in Saskatchewan on Saturday afternoon when his phone rang. The Caller ID on his iPhone said it was his older brother, Luke, but Brayden wasn't sure what he could possibly want. But with the excitement in Luke's voice, Brayden knew exactly what was happening. It was something he thought a lot about, especially after watching the NHL draft on Friday night, when he heard the news about Penguins forward Jordan Staal being reunited with his older brother, Eric, in Carolina.

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.

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.

Maybe it's because opponents now have a book on them, or maybe it's because some of the second-year Flyers are pressing. Whatever the reason, Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn are going through sophomore slumps. Ditto Matt Read, who has stumbled after a hot start. Entering Thursday's game against the New York Islanders, all three were in long goal-scoring droughts: Couturier at 24 consecutive games, Schenn at 12, and Read at nine. Coach Peter Laviolette was asked whether he was concerned that the streaks might start weighing on the players.

ONE GAGGLE of cameras and audio recorders surrounded Wayne Simmonds. Another was quickly forming around Danny Briere. Brayden Schenn kept his head down and walked toward his stall in the corner of the Flyers' dressing room, distanced from the bright lights and eager microphones. Schenn, 21, entered Monday's action tied for 29th in NHL scoring with 19 points - ahead of such bigger names as Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Ilya Kovalchuk, Alex Ovechkin and even Simmonds. Yet no player ahead of him on that list - especially no Flyer - has received less attention and fanfare this season.

BEFORE Andrew MacDonald was even traded to the Flyers on March 4, he identified Philadelphia as a destination he wanted to look into if he ever made it to free agency in July. Turns out, his 6-week peek at life in a Flyers uniform was enough to make him want to stay here for the considerable future. On the eve of the Stanley Cup playoffs, MacDonald and the Flyers agreed to a whopping 6-year, $30 million contract extension yesterday. In total terms, the deal will make him the 21st-highest paid defenseman in the NHL, according to CapGeek.com.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Scott Hartnell is one of just four Flyers remaining from Steve Downie's first run with the club in 2008. To him, and others, it's been obvious that Downie wasn't himself the last month - or even the better part of this season. Normally outgoing as a practical joker in the dressing room, Downie has been quiet and reserved, bogged down by injuries contributing to a career-worst year. "He's usually a treat to be around, for sure," Hartnell said. "He's had some good days and bad days.

FOR ABOUT a week in consecutive summers, Michael Parks found himself at a Flyers' prospect development camp in Voorhees, N.J. There, at the Skate Zone, he went through drills alongside other NHL hopefuls like Sean Couturier, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn, guys who these days don the orange and black at the Wells Fargo Center. Parks got a brief tour but never the opportunity to skate at the Flyers' arena. Until this week, that is, when he takes the ice for the University of North Dakota on college hockey's premier stage.

SEAN COUTURIER began growing his caveman-like orange beard back in early December - well before the Flyers had popped up on the playoff radar. Since early December, right around the time he put his razor away, the Flyers have gone on a 28-16-7 run to make believers out of most of the Eastern Conference. Heading into last night's matchup with the Sabres, Couturier thought it was time for a change. The magic in his "playoff" beard - since just about every game for the Flyers since December has had playoff implications after their 4-10-1 start - had apparently run dry. His team was 1-4-2 in the previous seven games.

The Flyers can exhale. Finally. Sparked by Brayden Schenn's two goals and Mark Streit's three assists, they ended a four-game losing streak Sunday by cruising past the woeful Buffalo Sabres, 5-2, at the Wells Fargo Center and moving to within two points of the second-place New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers, who stayed two points ahead of fourth-place Columbus, have four games left; the Rangers have three. "The big thing is we stuck to team defense, especially the first two periods, and didn't give them much," Schenn said after he became the team's sixth 20-goal scorer.

Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo will have a hearing with the NHL and could be suspended for a hit to the head of Buffalo rookie Chad Ruhwedel with 15 minutes, 31 seconds remaining Sunday night. "I shouldn't have done it," Rinaldo said after the Flyers whipped the Sabres, 5-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're up, 4-0, and there was no need for it, but it is what it is. It's part of the game. " Ruhwedel suffered a concussion, which will not help Rinaldo's cause with the league. "I had a lot of speed going at him," said Rinaldo, who scored his second goal of the season earlier in the game.

The Flyers have been at their best lately against the NHL's elite teams, and that's why it's so surprising that they have come up small in pivotal games against division rivals Columbus and the Rangers. They were brushed aside by both teams, getting outscored by a combined 5-1 margin. As a result, the Flyers' chances of catching the Rangers, who are second in the Metropolitan Division, have grown smaller, and they are going to have to fight off pesky Columbus for third place and an automatic playoff spot.

Steve Downie missed his sixth straight game Thursday because of a head injury, but Flyers coach Craig Berube said that when the winger is ready, he wants him back in the lineup. "I think he's close," Berube said before Thursday's key matchup against Columbus. Tye McGinn could soon be the odd man out. "I think he's been fine," Berube said of McGinn. "He's skated well and been involved. " McGinn was on a line Thursday with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds. "That line has been OK," Berube said.

DRENCHED IN sweat, Steve Downie sat in his stall inside the Flyers' empty locker room in St. Louis on Tuesday morning - just staring off into the distance. He had just gone through a grueling pregame skate routine - reserved for the Flyers' scratches - with assistant coach Ian Laperriere, Hal Gill and Steve Mason, and he was exhausted. Yet, he didn't hustle to get his equipment off to get back to the team hotel for lunch. He sat there in all his equipment. Something just didn't look right.
