This is not a recording: The Flyers lost in a shootout. The Flyers almost always lose when the game goes into a glorified breakaway contest. This time, they dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Florida, as the Panthers' Dave Bolland scored the winner at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. It was the Flyers' 10th straight shootout loss, including 0-5 this season. "Some guys are good at shootouts, and some guys aren't," said coach Craig Berube, whose team had four shooters lose control of the puck in the shootout.

STEVE MASON tomahawked his stick over the bench on his way off the ice, splintering it into pieces in pure frustration. Florida's Dave Bolland slipped a puck through his five-hole seconds earlier to hand the Flyers their 10th consecutive shootout loss. Even stopping five out of seven Panthers shooters in the breakaway competition wasn't good enough, given his teammates' brain scramble at the other end of the ice. The lost extracurricular point was the most tangible example of one of many games-within-the-game last night, with Mason's anger seeping through in his words for more than 5 minutes.

THE FLYERS have yet to win a game this season in which neither Claude Giroux nor Jake Voracek tallied at least a point. But throughout the team's improved play over its last five games, it has started to get more secondary scoring. "It's huge. We can't rely on just one line all year," said Sean Couturier, who carries a five-game point streak into today's 1 p.m. home game against the last-place Hurricanes. "They're one of the best [lines] in the league, but they need some help some nights.

Sean Couturier tied a personal milestone on Saturday, and Scott Laughton created one. Together, these two young Flyers centers and former first-round draft choices have given the team a spark. Couturier scored just 53 seconds into the game, and Laughton, making his 18th NHL appearance, scored his first goal as the Flyers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-1, in a matinee at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have earned points in five consecutive games and are 2-0 in a four-game homestand that continues Tuesday against Tampa Bay. Couturier tied a career high by scoring a point in his sixth straight game.

COLUMBUS - Less than a minute on the game clock separated the Flyers from another loss devoid of consistent offensive production. Worse yet for the orange and black, if the score through 59 minutes had stood, the decisive goal would have belonged to former Flyer Scott Hartnell. But with 55.3 seconds left, the puck squirted through the pads of Sergei Bobrovsky. Brayden Schenn was rewarded his second goal of the evening. The Flyers ensured themselves that they would steal at least a point.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Considering they managed little offensive-zone time and had just 19 shots in regulation, the Flyers should feel fortunate to get one point with a 3-2 overtime loss to Columbus Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.   "It's a satisfying point, but it's a lucky point, too," said Brayden Schenn, who tied the game with 55.5 seconds remaining in regulation by scoring his second goal of the night. "It was a tough game from our standpoint. We didn't generate a whole lot. We weren't great in our own end, and we were lucky to squeeze it into overtime.

Flyers rookie Scott Laughton is a different player than the skinny 18-year-old center who made a brief NHL stop two years ago. He's bigger, more confident, more comfortable with his surroundings. And based on the way coach Craig Berube talks about him, he may be here to stay. "I like the way he's competed," Berube said the other day. "He has a heavy stick and he's done some good things. " When the Flyers finish an 11-day, five-game road trip in Columbus on Tuesday night, the 6-foot-1, 177-pound Laughton will play in his 11th game since being recalled from Lehigh Valley on Nov. 18. "I'm feeling better every game," said Laughton, the Flyers' first-round pick (20th overall)

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Flyers' road misery continued Tuesday night, this time at the SAP Center. San Jose registered a stunning 2-1 win when Matt Nieto scored on a rebound with 11.5 seconds left after the Sharks' Tommy Wingels and Braydon Coburn collided with goalie Steve Mason. The goal handed the Flyers their eighth straight road loss (0-7-1). That's the longest they have gone without a road win since an 0-7-2 streak in 1999. Sean Couturier scored his first goal in 11 games - appeasing Flyers chairman Ed Snider, who pleaded for some secondary scoring the other day - and rookie Scott Laughton recorded the first point of his NHL career.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Flyers cofounder Ed Snider is miffed by his team's lack of secondary scoring. "Never seen anything like it in all the years I've been in hockey," Snider said in a telephone interview from his Montecito, Calif., home on Monday afternoon. "Even when we were an expansion team" in 1967-68, "somebody chipped in here and there. " In their last nine games, the Flyers have gotten just two goals from forwards who were not on their first line. The lack of secondary scoring helps explain why they are in a 1-7-1 slump and have fallen to sixth place in the eight-team Metropolitan Division.

DETROIT - The Flyers need to get their road act together if they want this season to have much meaning. Maybe the expected return of Michael Raffl later this week will help. The left winger had six goals in 12 games before he injured his right foot on Nov. 4. After a 1-0 shootout loss to the upstart New York Islanders on Monday in Uniondale, N.Y., the Flyers slipped to 2-6-1 on the road, where they have been shut out three times. They have not scored the first goal in any of their nine road games.
