TORONTO - Nearly 2 years younger, Flyers forward Brayden Schenn has relied on his older brother, Luke, to help navigate the ropes of the NHL. Luke Schenn had nearly 150 NHL games under his belt by the time Brayden finally got his chance with the Flyers last season. This year, the protégé has guided the veteran. "He's got a little seniority with the Flyers," Luke Schenn said with a smile. "He's showed me the ways a little bit. " Brayden was traded to the Flyers from Los Angeles in 2011.

For the first time this season, the Flyers won when they didn't have a lead heading into the third period. Winger Wayne Simmonds completed his second Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, assist, and fight - in the last three games as he scored on the power play with 11 minutes, 3 seconds left, keying the Flyers' 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. Skating by the crease, Simmonds took a slick backhand pass from Brayden Schenn (two goals) and rammed in his seventh goal of the season.

PITTSBURGH - Brayden Schenn enjoyed his coming-out party in the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs against the Penguins, making a name for himself with six points in six games as the Flyers ousted their most hated rival. Today, he awakes as the Flyers' leading scorer with 12 points. And, thanks to a two-goal effort from Schenn, which delivered a nail-biting 2-1 win last night over those same Penguins, the Flyers finally have the statement victory needed to declare they've officially turned the corner they've been talking about the last 2 weeks.

The Schenn brothers - Luke and Brayden - played a major role in the Flyers' 4-3 overtime win over Carolina on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. Luke Schenn, a bruising defenseman, had eight hits and six blocked shots in a team-high 24 minutes, 50 seconds, while Brayden had a goal and two assists as the Flyers concluded a 3-0-1 homestand. "Seven of eight points. We'll take it," said Luke Schenn, who will face his former Toronto teammates Monday. "It was good to get back on track a little bit, but we have to be a lot better on the road.

For the 0-3 Flyers, the news keeps getting worse. They lost two forwards from their already-depleted lineup Wednesday as Brayden Schenn was suspended for a game and the team announced that Scott Hartnell was out "indefinitely" because of an injured left foot. Both will miss Thursday's game against the visiting New York Rangers. The Flyers were already missing injured forwards Danny Briere and Zac Rinaldo. Schenn was suspended by the NHL for a second-period hit on New Jersey's Anton Volchenkov in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Devils.

Peter Laviolette is excited to put the puzzle (read: his new team) together. "This camp," the Flyers coach said the other day, "has a lot of value. " More so than in past years because the Flyers are coming off a summer makeover in which they dramatically changed the team's core. "Should be a very interesting camp," Laviolette said. Rookie camp, which will feature centers Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier, opens Monday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees at 10 a.m. The players will be on the ice at 9 a.m. on Tuesday and 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

IT'S JUST SHORT of a declarative statement, but the Flyers expect Brayden Schenn to play for the big club all of next season - and maybe play big for it, too. Yes, Wayne Simmonds also will be a valuable piece, and yes, they still expect to come to terms with him on a new contract, but if the kid is toiling with the Phantoms in Glens Falls in October and Mike Richards is pumping them in on the Left Coast, there will be quite the queasy feeling around...

DALLAS - For Michael Raffl, life in the NHL has been, well, a little bit of a raffle. There have been lots of chances, but little scoring. Raffl, 25, has played 16 games since joining the Flyers as a free agent from Sweden's second-tier league. He has yet to score a goal - and has done very little around the net to think he might be close. Yet, when the Flyers take the ice this afternoon at American Airlines Center against the Stars, Raffl will be in the lineup. He will even be playing alongside two capable linemates in Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.

Here is staff writer Sam Carchidi's key to the game: For the Flyers, containing the Jordan Staal line - which has been more effective than the heralded Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby units - and getting better production from Danny Briere and his linemates. Briere, Brayden Schenn, and Wayne Simmonds are a combined minus-16 in the last two games.
