Flyers fans feel frustrated, feel empty, as they watch the New York Rangers - the beatable team that eliminated the Orange and Black - face the beatable Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers, without a Stanley Cup since 1975, feel the same way after losing to the Rangers in seven opening-round games. "I still don't think they were the better team," winger Wayne Simmonds said. The Flyers, of course, have no one to blame but themselves.

NEW YORK - Steve Mason could barely stand up to skate off the ice to rest up for the final period of the Flyers' season. He had faced 28 shots, virtually nonstop, in the game's first 40 minutes. He had faced 18 shots in the past 20 minutes. He allowed two past him, two he had no chance of stopping. He stopped 26 of them, many of which he had no business stopping. He had given everything. So had his defense, and his forwards, and his coach. They played to the extent of their abilities, and it ended this way, in a haze of exhaustion and frustration.

Be in attack mode. Set the tone early. Shoot more often. That, veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen said, should be the plan as the Flyers face a win-or-stay-home Game 6 against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Timonen, whose team faces a three-games-to-two deficit in the Metropolitan Division semifinals, said the Flyers have been too passive. "We have to be more aggressive. We have to get more shots, and when we are more aggressive, I think we create more turnovers, we score more, we get more shots on the net," Timonen, 39, who hasn't decided if he will retire after the playoffs, said after taking part in the team's optional skate Monday in Voorhees.

From his first playoff game as an NHL head coach through his fifth, Craig Berube has made a succession of decisions that have defied the stability he had cultivated within weeks of his ascension to the job. This does not make him a poor coach. It makes him a desperate one, and it speaks to the task before him and the Flyers ahead of Tuesday's Game 6 against the Rangers. After he replaced Peter Laviolette in early October, Berube didn't need much time to reverse the course of the Flyers' season.

The New York Rangers have the upper hand in their playoff series with the Flyers because they have dominated even-strength play. New York, which can wrap up the series in six games with a win at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, has outscored the Flyers, 11-6, in even-strength situations, excluding empty-net goals. The Flyers are giving the Rangers too much space, forward Brayden Schenn said. "When we have that support, that's when you can make those little plays and have two guys in the battle instead of one guy battling," Schenn said.

TO TINKER or not to tinker? That is the question for Craig Berube. To begin the third period Sunday afternoon, the Flyers coach shifted Brayden Schenn to skate with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. It was the first time in months Scott Hartnell was not flanked to Giroux's left. Yet, when Giroux scored his first goal at Madison Square Garden in more than 450 days, Schenn was on the bench with Steve Mason. Hartnell was in the middle of the ice, pulling Rangers defenders away from the Flyers' captain.

Flyers forward Brayden Schenn has struggled against the New York Rangers in their first-round playoff series, but that doesn't exactly leave him in select company. Only the Detroit Red Wings have scored fewer goals than the 10 the Flyers have totaled in their five games with the New York Rangers. The Flyers trail the series by three games to two. To even it up in Game 6, Schenn and the rest of the forwards will have to start producing. The 22-year-old Schenn has no goals and two assists this series and is a minus-3.

NEW YORK - Claude Giroux got off his first shot on goal at Madison Square Garden in four games. He scored his first goal at MSG in more than 3 years, and his first goal of the playoffs. Clearly, the Flyers' captain must have played very well. Certainly, he led his team to a playoff win. Right? Wrong. The Flyers lost Game 5, 4-2. Giroux' goal came with the Flyers' net desperately empty, the team trailing, 3-1, inside of 2 minutes. The goal cut the deficit to one, but with the net empty again the Rangers scored and took a 3-2 series lead.

NEW YORK - Trailing by two goals and searching for a spark, Craig Berube sent Brayden Schenn over the boards with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek on the second shift of the third period. For Giroux and Voracek, it marked the first time in months they had skated a regular shift with anyone other than Scott Hartnell. "I switched it up just to try to get something going," Berube reasoned postgame. "I'm not sure if I'll stick with that or not. I just made a switch there. " The switch seemed inevitable, just based on the Rangers' ability to shut down the Flyers' top line through the first four games and two periods.

NEW YORK - Let's dispense with the time-tattered banalities at the start. If the Flyers lose this first-round series - and after the Rangers' 4-2 victory in Sunday's Game 5, it's likely they will - it won't be because they didn't play with enough effort or tenacity or aggressiveness. It won't be because their goaltending was somewhere between squirrelly and god-awful, or because their coach had them so unprepared for the playoffs that the team captain was willing to spearhead a locker-room mutiny for the sake of a change behind the bench.
