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.

FIGURE THIS one out: Brayden Schenn has accumulated nearly 15 percent of his entire season's point total in the last three games. In the penultimate week of a non-playoff season. Add his recent performance to the list of perplexing items about this Flyers team, up there with the disparaging road record (10-20-11), Steve Mason's win total (17) despite a franchise-record save percentage (.929), and Craig Berube's depth charts. Schenn, 23, tied for the league lead in scoring last week with six points - three goals and three assists - in the Flyers' three games (2-0-1)

Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn are more than brothers. They are best friends, and both say they miss being Flyers teammates. Funny thing is, they have elevated their play - especially Brayden - since being separated Jan. 6, the day the Flyers dealt Luke Schenn to Los Angeles. In the 23 games since the trade, Brayden Schenn has looked noticeably more confident and had nine goals and 10 assists - his best streak of the season. Brayden Schenn was asked if he was more productive because he was taking on more responsibility with his brother not around.

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.

A green Flyers jersey hung in Brayden Schenn's locker stall on Monday morning. The forward had been benched just two days earlier. But on Monday he was assigned the color that is worn at practice by the team's top line. It was quite a turnaround for Schenn, who was a healthy scratch on Saturday night. He will likely be on the first line Tuesday when the team hosts the Los Angeles Kings. Schenn admitted that he did not expect to spend practice alongside fellow green jerseys Jake Voracek and Claude Giroux.

BOSTON - One of the Schenn brothers returned to the lineup Wednesday and the other missed the game against the Bruins because of an undisclosed injury. Defenseman Luke Schenn, a healthy scratch the previous three games, replaced Brandon Manning (minus-2 over five games). His brother, Brayden, was sidelined by an apparent shoulder injury and is listed as day-to-day. Brayden Schenn was in a violent second-period collision with Dallas' Antoine Roussel on Tuesday, but he returned to the game and took part Wednesday in the morning skate.

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.

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.

Alex Ovechkin is the most feared goal scorer in the NHL, and although he scored in Washington's 4-1 win on Saturday over the Flyers, he has made his biggest contribution in their playoff series by literally throwing his weight around. A major reason the Capitals hold a two-games-to-none lead in their best-of-seven series is that the 6-foot-3, 239-pound Ovechkin has been pounding the Flyers with some killer checks. Ovechkin knocked Sean Couturier out of the series with a clean but hard hit Thursday in the Caps' opening, 2-0 win over the Flyers.

WASHINGTON - For the Flyers, it was a goal that will live in infamy. Goalie Steve Mason, whose superb play carried the team into the playoffs, allowed a Jason Chimera goal from beyond center ice that gave Washington a 2-0 second-period lead, keying the Capitals' 4-1 victory Saturday night before a raucous crowd at the Verizon Center. The Capitals, outshot by a 42-23 margin but getting another stellar performance from goalie Braden Holtby, have a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven series, which resumes Monday at the Wells Fargo Center.

WASHINGTON - After it was over and the Flyers had dropped a 4-1 decision to Washington on Saturday night, captain Claude Giroux looked and sounded stunned. "I'm not too sure what to say, to be honest," he said softly. "I think we played a good game, but at the end of the day, we have to win the game. " The Flyers outshot the Capitals, 42-23, after managing just 19 shots in their 2-0 loss in Game 1. Now they head home for Games 3 and 4. "We've been playing well at home this year," Giroux said.

WASHINGTON - The Flyers believe the blueprint for tying their first-round playoff series with Washington is simple: more discipline, more offensive creativity, more traffic in front of Capitals goalie Braden Holtby. The teams will meet in Game 2 at the Verizon Center on Saturday night. The Flyers managed just eight shots over the last two periods in their 2-0 loss in Thursday's opener. They also allowed Washington six of the last seven power-play chances. That has to change if the Flyers are going to return home with a split of the first two games.

WASHINGTON - If the Flyers are going to have any chance to upset top-seeded Washington, they need to jump-start their power play. Excluding the meaningless season finale against the Islanders - both lineups included several players who usually sit in the press box - the Flyers' power play is 0 for 17 in the last five games. In the series-opening 2-0 loss Thursday in Washington, the Flyers were 0 for 4 on the power play, including three failed opportunities in a scoreless opening first period.

WASHINGTON - The seminal moment occurred in a press box in Raleigh, N.C. In mid-November, with nary a bruise to complain about, Brayden Schenn found himself with a bird's-eye view of his teammates as they played the Carolina Hurricanes. Five goals in his first 16 games, too many nights in which he mustered a shot or two, a hit or two, a stretch of eight games before that night in which he mustered only a single goal - all had conspired to bounce him so far down the depth chart that new coach Dave Hakstol thought his new team had a better chance with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Chris Vandevelde, Ryan White or Scott Laughton on the ice than the former fifth overall draft pick.

WASHINGTON - Flyers center Sean Couturier could do nothing but attempt to brace himself when he saw Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin barreling toward him. The 6-foot-3, 239-pound Ovechkin, a seven-time 50-goal scorer, can also pack some pop, and he leveled Couturier into the boards at the red line with 8 minutes, 49 seconds left in the second period. No penalty was called on what appeared to be a clean but awfully hard hit. That ended the evening for Couturier, who appeared to be seriously injured and went right to the dressing room.

Here is a look at the Flyers-Capitals NHL first-round playoff series that starts on Thursday: Flyers keys The Flyers have not had much offense against the Capitals, scoring a total of nine goals in the four regular-season meetings. Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek each had two goals. More overall production will be needed if the Flyers are going to pull off a monumental upset. The Flyers must also neutralize the Caps' explosive top line of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie and getting off to better starts so they are not chasing the game.

If the Flyers want to shock the hockey world and knock off Washington in the opening round of the NHL playoffs, it's advisable they stick to Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin like his favorite deodorant. Ovechkin led the NHL this season with 50 goals - including a league-best 19 on the power play - and how the Flyers defend him and his dangerous linemates, center Nicklas Backstrom and right winger T.J. Oshie, will play a major role in determining the seven-game series. "They have everything - skill, speed and size," left winger Michael Raffl said after practice Wednesday in Voorhees, where the Flyers prepared for Thursday's series opener in Washington.

WASHINGTON - There is a fine line between, "Hey we were in front of the net all game" and, "We were in the guy's grill all game. " It is a line that separates how a game is characterized and how it is often won. "I think sometimes we go to the net, and we just cruise by it," Wayne Simmonds was saying before Thursday night's 2-0 loss to Washington. "We don't stop. You can flash by the net as much as you want, but if you don't stop you're not going to get that second or even third opportunity.
