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)

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.

For Jordan Weal, the wait finally ended. The rookie forward, acquired from Los Angeles on Jan. 6, made his Flyers debut against visiting Boston on Monday. Sam Gagner, who played one game after being recalled from Lehigh Valley, was a healthy scratch. Weal was part of the deal that sent Vinny Lecavalier (four goals in nine games with the Kings) and Luke Schenn (minus-1 in nine games) to Los Angeles. "Jordan has worked for that opportunity," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game.

The Flyers whiffed on a chance Monday night to sweep the season series from Boston for the first time in franchise history. Brett Connolly tipped in Zdeno Chara's shot with 1 minute, 54 seconds left, lifting Boston to a 3-2 win over the Flyers at the stunned Wells Fargo Center. It was the Flyers' third straight loss, all in regulation, and it pushed them further behind in the wild-card race. The losing streak started when they allowed the winning goal with 7.5 seconds left against Toronto.

PITTSBURGH - The Flyers scored the game's first two goals, both on the power play, and you could almost hear the home fans moaning Thursday night that the Orange and Black were still in the Penguins' collective heads. But a strange thing happened to the Flyers as they aimed for their ninth straight win over their hated archrivals: They found a way to lose. The Flyers' uncanny dominance of the Penguins came to a halt, 4-3, before the 400th straight sellout crowd at the electric Consol Energy Center.

PITTSBURGH - The names were hard to hate, mostly because you'd never heard of them before. It had been 291 days since the Flyers had upped their winning streak against the Penguins to eight, and the indifference that names such as Olli Maatta, Ben Dumoulin and Bryan Rust evoked when the teams finally met Thursday night was not overwhelmed by any plays or shenanigans of their more recognized and despised stars. Yes, Sidney Crosby scored an impossible wide-angle goal that harkened to his Olympic gold-medal winner and Evgeni Malkin did his puck-possession magic at times, despite Scott Laughton and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare doing their best to fill in for injured Sean Couturier - Malkin's regular blanket since these teams last met in a playoff game nearly four years ago. And Phil Kessel, another old Olympic hero, brought Pittsburgh all the way back from a 2-0, first-period hole, knocking in a loose puck during one of an endless string of power plays to grab the lead, scoring an even-strength 2-on-1 in the third period for the deciding goal of a 4-3, defense-to-the-wind Penguins victory.

Henrik Lundqvist remained on one knee for a moment, looking on in almost bewilderment as the Flyers celebrated an early lead. The New York Rangers goaltender was caught on the wrong side of the net as Sean Couturier sent a pass across the crease to Brayden Schenn, who fired it home less than four minutes into the first period. It had all the signs of a long afternoon for Lundqvist, who has long been a thorn in the Flyers' side. Instead, it proved to be a rare miscue. Lundqvist returned to his feet and rallied the Rangers to a 3-2 win. He recorded 34 saves, including a series of key stops late in the third period.

Jake Voracek slowly skated past the visitors' bench on Saturday afternoon while the New York Rangers emptied onto the ice. Voracek's shootout attempt had sailed wide of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, bouncing off of the boards and sending the Rangers into celebration after a 3-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers' valiant effort - which included a tying goal in the third period - was for naught after they were held scoreless in the shootout. Shayne Gostisbehere, Claude Giroux, and Voracek each missed their chances without barely testing Lundqvist.

Now that he has about $4.1 million in salary-cap space and his team is in the playoff hunt, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall is not ruling out adding a forward before the Feb. 29 trade deadline. "If we can improve our team in any way without mortgaging the future, we'll look at it," Hextall said Thursday. "I mean, if young players can make us better, of course we'll look at it. " He is likely looking at Jonathan Drouin, 20, a left winger who is on the trade market. Drouin has great potential but has underachieved in Tampa Bay after being the third overall draft pick in 2013.

If the Flyers are going to make a playoff push, the time has arrived. They started a stretch Saturday afternoon in which they play 10 straight Eastern Conference rivals. Beginning the day three points out of an Eastern Conference wild-card spot, they inched closer with a workmanlike, 4-0 win over the New York Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center. Matt Read recorded a goal and two assists, and Steve Mason notched his third shutout of the season as the Flyers extended their winning streak to three games - one shy of their longest of the season.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - When Paul Holmgren was general manager, he made many strong deals, transforming the Flyers from the worst team in hockey in 2006-07 to a conference finalist the following season. But two moves he made later in his tenure - acquiring stay-at-home defenseman Luke Schenn for blossoming left winger James van Riemsdyk, and signing free-agent Vinny Lecavalier to a five-year, $22.5 million contract - did not work out as planned. Fact is, they set the team back on a number of levels.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - After a West Coast trip that produced three mostly listless losses, the Flyers have regained their mojo. Thanks to defenseman Michael Del Zotto's dramatic goal, they recorded their second straight win Thursday, defeating the Minnesota Wild, 4-3, in overtime at the Excel Energy Center. Del Zotto's second goal of the game won it with 37 seconds left in overtime, enabling the Flyers to snap a five-game road losing streak. But the victory may have been costly.
