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.

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.

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.

FOR ONE night, at least, up was down. Black was white. A dim-looking matchup was made bright. The Flyers, who hadn't scored more than three goals in eight straight games, played, well, like they caught Lightning in a bottle. The Eastern Conference-leading Lightning looked like the Sabres. Role player Chris VandeVelde netted his first multipoint game in 79 career NHL contests. Brayden Schenn broke a 15-game scoring slump. Andrew MacDonald fought for the second time in his 345-game career.

If you didn't know better, you would have thought the team wearing orange and black Monday night was the one that had the most points in the Eastern Conference - and not the visiting team from Tampa Bay. For one night, at least, the Flyers were dominating. They made things easy for 33-year-old rookie goalie Rob Zepp, equaling a season-high for goals this season, as they spanked the best-in-the-East Lightning, 7-3, before 19,598 amused fans at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers' sleepy offense woke up Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare ended a 28-game scoreless streak, Brayden Schenn snapped a 15-game drought, and Michael Raffl's eight-game run without a goal was halted as the Flyers posted a 7-3 win against the Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Entering Monday, the Flyers were averaging 2.64 goals per game, 18th in the 30-team NHL. Aside from the top line - and Wayne Simmonds' power-play scoring - the Flyers had not gotten much production before Monday's breakout.

After being away from the Wells Fargo Center for 19 days, the Flyers returned home Tuesday night and ended their five-game losing streak in dramatic fashion. Wayne Simmonds scored the game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout as the Flyers outlasted Ottawa, 2-1, at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason was brilliant in the shootout (four stops on five shots) and the 65 minutes as the Flyers snapped a 10-game, two-year losing streak in shootouts. They had been 0-5 in shootouts this season, and are now 28-56 since the breakaway competition started in 2005-06.

After taking part in pregame warm-ups, Flyers captain Claude Giroux decided he could be effective enough to play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. Giroux, who began the night tied for fourth in the NHL with 43 points, centered a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek. Earlier in the day, Giroux skated gingerly and did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate in Voorhees. Coach Craig Berube said that Giroux - who suffered a severe skate cut near his left ankle in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Friday and missed the next game - had been cleared by doctors to play, but that it depended on his comfort level.

Captain Claude Giroux, one of the NHL's leading scorers with 43 points, missed practice Monday because of an injury near his left ankle, but the Flyers are hopeful he can play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. "It's possible he plays, but that's about the most information I can give you," general manager Ron Hextall said. Giroux was injured Friday in the third period of a 2-1 loss in Carolina when he was accidentally cut by the skate of the Hurricanes' Justin Faulk. At the time, the Flyers said he probably would play Saturday, but he sat out the 5-2 loss in New Jersey.

RALEIGH, N.C. - For the Flyers, what had the makings of an excellent eight-game road trip has quickly turned mediocre. The Flyers, again let down by their penalty-killing unit and a poor second period, wasted a third-period comeback and dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to Colorado on Wednesday for their third straight loss on the trip, one that started with three wins. "I thought we played a pretty good game, but we're finding ways to lose games," said coach Craig Berube, whose team will play lowly Carolina on Friday and will finish the grueling trip in New Jersey on Saturday.

NASHVILLE - The situation is deliciously ironic. Flyers coach Craig Berube, a one-time NHL bad boy who finished his career with the seventh-highest penalty-minutes total in league history, steadfastly insists his team does not need an enforcer. The subject came up again after Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien threw his 6-foot-5, 260-pound frame at Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, Brayden Schenn, et al in the Flyers' 4-3 overtime win last Sunday. Giroux, a 5-foot-11, 172-pound center who has been the NHL's leading scorer over the last four-plus seasons, absorbed at least a half-dozen hits from Byfuglien, who weighs 88 pounds more than the Flyers' captain.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Flyers goalie Steve Mason will not be sidelined for a long time, general manager Ron Hextall said Tuesday after the team's morning skate. Mason, one of the Flyers' best players this season, has missed the last three games with an apparent back injury. He visited a specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday, and Hextall was pleased with the results. The GM said Mason will not play Saturday in Nashville but will make the trip with the team. Best-case scenario: He returns to play Monday in Arizona.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Flyers go into their three-day holiday break in good spirits. They are 3-0 on their critical eight-game road trip after a workmanlike 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night at the Xcel Energy Center. The Flyers (14-14-6) got goals from all four lines, including another tally by the revived Vinny Lecavalier. Lecavalier, playing right wing on the fourth line, tipped in Andrew MacDonald's wrist shot with 14 minutes, 31 seconds left to put the Flyers ahead, 4-2. It was his third goal in the last two games after a 14-game streak without one. "It's a good start; we're looking for each other as a line, looking to make plays at the right time," said Lecavalier, 34, who has played well in all four games since returning from a seven-game benching.
