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.

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.

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.

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.

After losing two straight home games to NHL lightweights, the Flyers completed a weekend sweep of league powers Sunday, defeating the Washington Capitals, 3-2, at the Wells Fargo Center and keeping pace in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Defenseman Michael Del Zotto broke a 2-2 tie with 4 minutes, 13 seconds left, lifting the Flyers to the victory and giving them points in 12 of their last 13 games. The Flyers remained four points behind Boston, a surprise winner in Chicago on Sunday, for the last playoff spot.

IT . . . Is . . . Alive . . . The Skating Dead, the label often attached to this town's hockey team less than a month ago, are not only moving forward, they are poised to climb over a numbed body or even two in the next couple of weeks. Their playoff chances reduced to state lottery-winning percentages just a month ago, the Flyers added four more points to their mounting total over the weekend with victories over two playoff-bound teams, including the NHL's current top team, the Nashville Predators.

A SLUMP in golf means more times at the tee and putting green. Drop a few passes in football, and you find yourself staring at the massive spinning wheels of a JUGS machine. Baseball players take extra batting practice, watch video to look for blips in their swing, do a hundred other little things. Or they are like former Phillie Matt Stairs, who when asked why he didn't take extra batting practice to break out of a slump, said, "Why practice a bad habit?" That's not exactly Jakub Voracek's philosophy.

For the Flyers, the Great Playoff Push was stalled Tuesday night by an old nemesis, Columbus. Despite getting outshot by 44-25, Columbus ended the Flyers' nine-game points streak with a 5-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the Flyers' first regulation loss since Jan. 9 against the New York Islanders. Columbus, which won four of five games against the Flyers this season, took a 3-2 lead midway through the third period when Matt Calvert finished off a tic-tac-toe passing play after a Vinny Lecavalier turnover.

BUFFALO - The Flyers' top goalie is injured for the third time this season, their best defenseman still hasn't played because of blood clots, and their No. 1 line is in a major funk.   Despite those setbacks, the Flyers, who host Columbus on Tuesday, are in their best stretch since 2011 - and have climbed back into the playoff hunt. "We're playing a good team game now and everybody is contributing," captain Claude Giroux said after the Flyers overcame an awful 15-minute second-period stretch and outlasted sad-sack Buffalo, 2-1, on Sunday.

BUFFALO - Flyers coach Craig Berube kept his first line intact Sunday night in Buffalo, saying he wanted to give Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek a chance to snap out of their slump. The top line entered the night with one even-strength goal since Jan. 19 but had an opportunity for a breakout game against Buffalo, which had allowed a league-high 191 goals entering the contest. Michael Raffl returned to the lineup, and he could have been moved to left wing on Giroux's unit.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Flyers are showing a funny way of trying to sneak closer in the playoff race. For the second straight game, they picked up a point but blew a third-period lead and lost on the road. This time, they coughed up a 3-1 advantage en route to a 4-3 overtime defeat to Columbus at Nationwide Arena on Friday night. Artem Anisimov's first goal in 21 games, scored on a rebound, gave Columbus the win with 2 minutes, 43 seconds left in overtime.  The Flyers had dropped a 2-1 overtime decision in Montreal on Tuesday.

MONTREAL - Braydon Coburn was a little excited. Participating in his first full-contact practice since being cleared to resume all activity, Coburn's emotion got the best of him at the Bell Centre yesterday. After battling with teammate R.J. Umberger in a three-on-three drill, Coburn and Umberger pushed and shoved and their gloves went flying. The two almost came to blows, fists cocked and ready to go, before the scuffle was quickly broken up. The entire sequence lasted 10 seconds, a true non-event.

WASHINGTON - The gloves went flying at nearly the same time the puck hit the ice on a first-period faceoff, which followed a television timeout. Timing included, the bout really didn't make much sense until the jersey numbers spinning around revealed the participants: Scott Laughton vs. Matt Niskanen. Wait, what? A highly touted rookie without a professional fight squaring off against a defenseman who has barely dropped the mitts in 545 career games? Ah, but yes. Less than a month ago, Niskanen knocked Laughton out of the game and out of the lineup with a clean, shoulder-to-chest hit on Jan. 14. Laughton, 20, suffered his first concussion as a pro. Even though Laughton admitted he needed to keep his head up more, he wanted to get that hit out of his system.

Looking rusty from a long layoff, the Flyers were fortunate to get a point Thursday night as their four-game winning streak ended with a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason made 28 saves and was the main reason the Flyers inched to within nine points of the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. "We left the extra point out there," Mason said after the Flyers completed a solid 4-0-1 homestand. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot at the end of the second period, giving up two goals off of mistakes.
