THE STATISTICS and analytics matched what Dean Lombardi's eyes were witnessing. He could see the drop-off in Mike Richards like everyone else, but didn't want to believe it. Managing a dynastic Stanley Cup enterprise isn't always black and white, after all. Not when people are involved. Lombardi had one final opportunity last June to buy out Richards' contract, but was swayed by the conversation he had with the player who made the Los Angeles Kings' 2012 Cup possible. He decided against it. It was a decision the general manager clearly regrets now, after placing the former Flyers captain on waivers yesterday.

If you didn't know better, you would have thought the team wearing orange and black Monday night was the one that had the most points in the Eastern Conference - and not the visiting team from Tampa Bay. For one night, at least, the Flyers were dominating. They made things easy for 33-year-old rookie goalie Rob Zepp, equaling a season-high for goals this season, as they spanked the best-in-the-East Lightning, 7-3, before 19,598 amused fans at the Wells Fargo Center. "All four lines were going well, and our [defensemen]

FOR ONE night, at least, up was down. Black was white. A dim-looking matchup was made bright. The Flyers, who hadn't scored more than three goals in eight straight games, played, well, like they caught Lightning in a bottle. The Eastern Conference-leading Lightning looked like the Sabres. Role player Chris VandeVelde netted his first multipoint game in 79 career NHL contests. Brayden Schenn broke a 15-game scoring slump. Andrew MacDonald fought for the second time in his 345-game career.

The Flyers' sleepy offense woke up Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare ended a 28-game scoreless streak, Brayden Schenn snapped a 15-game drought, and Michael Raffl's eight-game run without a goal was halted as the Flyers posted a 7-3 win against the Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Entering Monday, the Flyers were averaging 2.64 goals per game, 18th in the 30-team NHL. Aside from the top line - and Wayne Simmonds' power-play scoring - the Flyers had not gotten much production before Monday's breakout.

After being away from the Wells Fargo Center for 19 days, the Flyers returned home Tuesday night and ended their five-game losing streak in dramatic fashion. Wayne Simmonds scored the game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout as the Flyers outlasted Ottawa, 2-1, at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason was brilliant in the shootout (four stops on five shots) and the 65 minutes as the Flyers snapped a 10-game, two-year losing streak in shootouts. They had been 0-5 in shootouts this season, and are now 28-56 since the breakaway competition started in 2005-06.

After taking part in pregame warm-ups, Flyers captain Claude Giroux decided he could be effective enough to play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. Giroux, who began the night tied for fourth in the NHL with 43 points, centered a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek. Earlier in the day, Giroux skated gingerly and did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate in Voorhees. Coach Craig Berube said that Giroux - who suffered a severe skate cut near his left ankle in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Friday and missed the next game - had been cleared by doctors to play, but that it depended on his comfort level.

Captain Claude Giroux, one of the NHL's leading scorers with 43 points, missed practice Monday because of an injury near his left ankle, but the Flyers are hopeful he can play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. "It's possible he plays, but that's about the most information I can give you," general manager Ron Hextall said. Giroux was injured Friday in the third period of a 2-1 loss in Carolina when he was accidentally cut by the skate of the Hurricanes' Justin Faulk. At the time, the Flyers said he probably would play Saturday, but he sat out the 5-2 loss in New Jersey.

RALEIGH, N.C. - For the Flyers, what had the makings of an excellent eight-game road trip has quickly turned mediocre. The Flyers, again let down by their penalty-killing unit and a poor second period, wasted a third-period comeback and dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to Colorado on Wednesday for their third straight loss on the trip, one that started with three wins. "I thought we played a pretty good game, but we're finding ways to lose games," said coach Craig Berube, whose team will play lowly Carolina on Friday and will finish the grueling trip in New Jersey on Saturday.

NASHVILLE - The situation is deliciously ironic. Flyers coach Craig Berube, a one-time NHL bad boy who finished his career with the seventh-highest penalty-minutes total in league history, steadfastly insists his team does not need an enforcer. The subject came up again after Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien threw his 6-foot-5, 260-pound frame at Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, Brayden Schenn, et al in the Flyers' 4-3 overtime win last Sunday. Giroux, a 5-foot-11, 172-pound center who has been the NHL's leading scorer over the last four-plus seasons, absorbed at least a half-dozen hits from Byfuglien, who weighs 88 pounds more than the Flyers' captain.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Flyers go into their three-day holiday break in good spirits. They are 3-0 on their critical eight-game road trip after a workmanlike 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night at the Xcel Energy Center. The Flyers (14-14-6) got goals from all four lines, including another tally by the revived Vinny Lecavalier. Lecavalier, playing right wing on the fourth line, tipped in Andrew MacDonald's wrist shot with 14 minutes, 31 seconds left to put the Flyers ahead, 4-2. It was his third goal in the last two games after a 14-game streak without one. "It's a good start; we're looking for each other as a line, looking to make plays at the right time," said Lecavalier, 34, who has played well in all four games since returning from a seven-game benching.
