Observations heading into Game 4 at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, with the New York Rangers holding a two-games-to-one series lead over the Flyers. Much has been made about Claude Giroux's struggles in the first three games of the playoffs, but the fact is, the intense center has been one of the Flyers' best players. To be fair, Giroux - whom the Rangers are double-teaming and hitting at every opportunity _ has been one of the Flyers' best players. He has drawn penalties, won a series-high 61.1 percent of his face-offs, collected a pair of assists, and posted a team-best plus-3 rating.

The Flyers' power play struggled at the Wells Fargo Center all season, and that puzzling pattern continued in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers. While on the power play, they managed just four shots on goal, had 10 shots blocked, and went 0 for 5. That will have to change if the Flyers are going to even the series - which the Rangers lead, two games to one - on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. Coach Craig Berube was satisfied with the amount of zone time the Flyers had during their power plays, but not with the puck movement.

RULE NO. 76: "No excuses. Play like a champion. " For Claude Giroux, that principle from the "Wedding Crashers" rule book is not just a saying, but a way of life. For four games this season, and three more in the playoffs, Giroux has barely been able to wake up without a Rangers defender breathing all over him. No shift has gone unnoticed. No inch of ice has gone uncontested. The Flyers' captain has not scored against New York in more than 2 years, or 13 straight games.

Looking to boost the offense, Flyers coach Craig Berube made significant changes for Game 3 Tuesday night against the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center. Vinny Lecavalier moved from fourth-line to second-line center, and Brayden Schenn shifted from center to left wing on the second unit. The move pushed Michael Raffl from second-line left wing to fourth-line center. Berube said he liked the way Lecavalier played when he moved to the second line in Sunday's third period.

Because the Flyers will get the last line change at home, the top unit of Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Scott Hartnell won't face the New York Rangers' standout defensive pairing - Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - as often when the series switches to the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. "They'll get those guys out there enough," Flyers coach Craig Berube said of the Rangers duo. Berube said the Flyers' No. 1 line "just has to keep competing the way they are. I thought they did a better job last game being competitive, supporting each other better, using their speed.

NEW YORK - Typically, NHL players playing their fourth career game do not get much attention, nor is there much pressure on them to make a significant impact. That is not the case for Jason Akeson. With 14:15 left in the second period yesterday, and the Flyers trailing the Rangers by a goal, the rookie came up big. After Vinny Lecavalier's shot from the point was brushed aside, and Brayden Schenn deflected it to the left of the goal, Akeson found himself all alone with the puck, and an open net. Akeson buried the shot, tying the game at 2 and giving the Flyers some tangible confidence for the rest of the game, a 4-2 win that evened their series against the Rangers.

BEFORE Andrew MacDonald was even traded to the Flyers on March 4, he identified Philadelphia as a destination he wanted to look into if he ever made it to free agency in July. Turns out, his 6-week peek at life in a Flyers uniform was enough to make him want to stay here for the considerable future. On the eve of the Stanley Cup playoffs, MacDonald and the Flyers agreed to a whopping 6-year, $30 million contract extension yesterday. In total terms, the deal will make him the 21st-highest paid defenseman in the NHL, according to CapGeek.com.

FIVE YEARS AGO, a wrecking ball tore a hole through the brick and mortar of the Spectrum - tearing down nearly 40 years worth of dusty Flyers and Sixers memories. On the periphery, the demolition of America's Showplace left the Flyers' top minor league affiliate in need of a new home after an impressive 13-year run across the street from the big club. That wrecking ball left the Phantoms' franchise in shambles. They've yet to recover. The Phantoms will play their final home game in Glens Falls, N.Y., this Friday to mercifully end the most embarrassing era of minor league production in the Flyers' 47-year history.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Scott Hartnell is one of just four Flyers remaining from Steve Downie's first run with the club in 2008. To him, and others, it's been obvious that Downie wasn't himself the last month - or even the better part of this season. Normally outgoing as a practical joker in the dressing room, Downie has been quiet and reserved, bogged down by injuries contributing to a career-worst year. "He's usually a treat to be around, for sure," Hartnell said. "He's had some good days and bad days.

FOR ABOUT a week in consecutive summers, Michael Parks found himself at a Flyers' prospect development camp in Voorhees, N.J. There, at the Skate Zone, he went through drills alongside other NHL hopefuls like Sean Couturier, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn, guys who these days don the orange and black at the Wells Fargo Center. Parks got a brief tour but never the opportunity to skate at the Flyers' arena. Until this week, that is, when he takes the ice for the University of North Dakota on college hockey's premier stage.
