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.

LOS ANGELES - Vinny Lecavalier has spent the last 17 seasons in the NHL, but when he stepped inside the Los Angeles Kings' practice facility for the first time, he felt as if he was starting over. "I don't know anybody really personally," Lecavalier said Thursday at the Staples Center before the Kings played the Toronto Maple Leafs. "It feels like the first day of school. It's exciting. " Like most trades, the deal that sent Lecavlier and defenseman Brayden Schenn from the Flyers to the Kings brought new faces and different playing styles.

The Flyers' slumping special teams regrouped and played a major role in snapping a three-game losing streak Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Brayden Schenn had three points, and Shayne Gostisbehere and the sizzling Sean Couturier each contributed a goal and an assist as the Flyers outlasted the Montreal Canadiens, 4-3. The Flyers' much-maligned penalty kill was 4 for 4. The PK allowed six goals on 12 chances during the 0-3 West Coast trip. The power play, which has struggled recently, also got a goal from Wayne Simmonds.

The Flyers went to the film room Monday and predictably did not enjoy what they saw from an 0-3 West Coast trip. In losses to Anaheim, San Jose and Los Angeles, the Flyers allowed six power-play goals. Their work on special teams, especially with the recent slump of the penalty killing unit, needs major improvement. The Flyers entered Monday ranked 26th in penalty kill percentage. They have stopped 77.3 percent of opponents' power play chances. "The last few games we have gotten scored on [killing penalties]

LOS ANGELES - Poor starts contributed significantly to the Flyers' 0-3 West Coast trip, but it isn't a new trend. The Flyers have struggled in the first period all season, getting outscored, 34-15, in the opening 20 minutes of games. They have allowed the first goal in the last five games. Overall, they have surrendered the first goal in 23 of 37 games. The Flyers, who host Montreal on Tuesday, have just six wins in the 23 games in which opponents have scored first, compiling a 6-11-6 record.

LOS ANGELES - The Flyers went 0-for-California. Concluding a three-game West Coast trip Saturday, they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Los Angeles Kings before a sellout crowd at the Staples Center. It marked the first time since 2003-04 that the Flyers failed to win on a West Coast trip. The Flyers had been 5-0-1 in L.A. since a loss in 2003-04. "We can't expect to play 20 minutes and expect to win a hockey game," defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. The Flyers dominated the third period, outshooting the Kings by 16-8 and getting to within 2-1 on Brayden Schenn's power-play goal with 12 minutes, 10 seconds left.

LOS ANGELES - The holiday break was good for the Flyers to get together with family and friends, bad for the momentum they had built with their best hockey of the season. Their 8-2-2 run had put them within three points of a playoff spot, but their miserable West Coast trip - which ended with a 2-1 loss Saturday in Los Angeles - has their season on high alert. The Flyers lacked scoring, discipline, and any semblance of effective penalty-killing during an 0-3 trip whose highlight was a visit to the mansion of club chairman Ed Snider.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Flyers captain Claude Giroux points a finger at himself for the top line's struggles. His linemates say they all need to be better. Whoever deserves the blame, one thing is certain: The Flyers need Giroux and his wingers, Michael Raffl and Brayden Schenn, to regain their mojo if they are going to make a playoff run. The second line, bolstered by the addition of Jake Voracek, has been the Flyers' most effective unit since it was revamped five games ago. Voracek has eight points in the last five games.

ST. LOUIS - The Flyers usually score as many goals in St. Louis as Chris Pronger's bobblehead figurine, which was given to fans who attended Thursday night's game at the Scottrade Center.  Thursday was different. Left winger Matt Read, on a sensational second effort, gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead in the second period en route to their fourth straight road victory, a hard-earned 4-2 win over the Blues. The Flyers scored more goals in the second period (three) than they had in their previous four visits to St. Louis combined (one)
