The Flyers got some positive news on the injury front Monday: Andrew MacDonald and Luke Schenn, defensemen who will help their sagging penalty-killing unit, were upgraded to "day to day," and there is a possibility they will play Wednesday against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Both practiced Monday in Voorhees. If they don't play Wednesday, they could return Thursday against visiting Minnesota. "They need practice," coach Craig Berube said. Schenn, who injured his left shoulder when hit by Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon on Nov. 8, said "every day is getting a lot better.

MONTREAL - The Flyers' inability to defend power plays recently has masked the fact that prolific-scoring winger Jake Voracek has become one of the NHL's feel-good stories this season. There have been many players struggling on the penalty kill, including defenseman Braydon Coburn, who has not played well since returning from a foot injury Nov. 8. But Coburn is not alone. "It comes down to details, and every guy has to do his part - and we're not doing it now," defenseman Nick Grossmann said after the Flyers dropped a 6-3 decision Saturday in Montreal.

MONTREAL - The Flyers' penalty-killing unit is, well, killing them. It happened for the second straight night, this time in a 6-3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at the earsplitting Bell Centre on Saturday. Montreal scored on its only three power plays as it built a 3-0 lead en route to its fifth straight victory. "Simple things" are costing the Flyers on the penalty kill, winger Matt Read said after the loss. "We have opportunities to clear pucks, and we don't; we're not blocking shots, not moving the puck well, not reading [plays]

Flyers goalie Steve Mason handed Jackie Lithgow his stick Tuesday. Wayne Simmonds wrapped his arm around the 19-year-old and gave him encouraging words. Several players, including Mark Streit, Brayden Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto, and coach Craig Berube told Lithgow he was welcome to visit the locker room anytime. "Epic," Lithgow said in a low, barely audible tone while sitting in a wheelchair in the middle of the locker room at the team's Voorhees practice facility. Lithgow was attending Bloomsburg University when he was assaulted almost nine months ago. He left the hospital Tuesday for the first time since his grueling rehabilitation began.

The Flyers continued their winning ways during their homestand, but it wasn't easy in their 4-3 win Saturday over the Colorado Avalanche at the Wells Fargo Center. The power-play unit scored three times and looked healthy, which is more than can be said about the organization's defensemen. A 4-0 lead, with three goals coming on the power play, also looked healthy before Colorado scored three unanswered goals and put some serious late-game pressure on goalie Steve Mason. It was the Flyers' third straight win, all at home.

Flyers coach Craig Berube said he will decide after Saturday's morning skate if veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn returns to the lineup that night against visiting Colorado. On one hand, Berube knows Coburn would give the Flyers a defenseman who can keep up with the speedy Avs. On the other hand, if Coburn sits, he will have six more days before the Flyers play again, giving him more time to make sure his injured left foot is ready. Decisions, decisions. "Part of it will be his decision, too," Berube said after three Flyers - Coburn, Andrew MacDonald and Blair Jones - took part in an optional skate Friday at the team's Voorhees practice facility.

BRAYDEN SCHENN blasted down the boards and pickpocketed Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell, giving Campbell a shove on his way toward the slot. Gliding toward the left, Schenn cradled the puck and deftly dished right, in the direction of Sean Couturier's outstretched stick. Panthers netminder Roberto Luongo, sprawled on the still-fresh first-period ice, had little chance as the puck curled around the back of the net smoother than a new stick of deodorant. It was the first glimpse of Schenn's most inspired period of hockey this season.

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was an unwanted free agent most of the summer, and he finally signed a one-year deal with the Flyers when Kimmo Timonen was sidelined with career-threatening blood clots. It's beginning to look like the best $1.3 million the Flyers have spent in a long time. After a shaky start to the season, Del Zotto has steadied himself, and he continued his strong all-around play Thursday night, helping the Flyers dominate Florida, 4-1, at the Wells Fargo Center.

EVEN CHRIS VANDEVELDE was mildly surprised when he strolled into the Flyers' dressing room yesterday morning before practice and found his name slotted next to Claude Giroux's and Jake Voracek's on the top line. With co-leading goal-scorer Michael Raffl out for the next 6 weeks with a "lower-body" injury after blocking a shot Tuesday against Edmonton, coach Craig Berube chose VandeVelde to fill the void. It's an awfully big jump for VandeVelde, who began the season on the Phantoms' second line, and has never played full time on an NHL top line.

The Flyers received crushing news Wednesday: Michael Raffl, the emerging top-line left winger who shares the team lead with six goals, will miss six weeks because of an apparent foot injury he suffered blocking a third-period shot Tuesday in a 4-1 win over Edmonton. "He's been a huge part of our line and our team," right winger Jake Voracek said Wednesday after practice in Voorhees. "It's tough to see him go down, especially after the start he's had . . . but like I said, hockey injuries happen.
