BOSTON - One of the Schenn brothers returned to the lineup Wednesday and the other missed the game against the Bruins because of an undisclosed injury. Defenseman Luke Schenn, a healthy scratch the previous three games, replaced Brandon Manning (minus-2 over five games). His brother, Brayden, was sidelined by an apparent shoulder injury and is listed as day-to-day. Brayden Schenn was in a violent second-period collision with Dallas' Antoine Roussel on Tuesday, but he returned to the game and took part Wednesday in the morning skate.

Coming off a five-day layoff, the Flyers will try to slow down the NHL's highest-scoring team, Dallas, when they meet Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Stars (4-1), led by linemates Jamie Benn and Tyler Sequin, are averaging a league-best 3.80 goals per game. Seguin centers left winger Benn and right winger Patrick Sharp, a former Flyer who won three Stanley Cups with Chicago. "It's probably the best offensive line in the league," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

THOUGH DAVE Hakstol wouldn't confirm specifics on exactly who will be in Tuesday's lineup, observing practice provided all the necessary confirmation that need not be released from the lips of the reticent first-year NHL coach. When the Flyers finally return to the ice following a five-day break from game action, a fully healthy R.J. Umberger appears destined to be a healthy scratch against Dallas. Umberger missed time last week with an undisclosed upper-body injury and returned to the ice Friday, participating in about half of the day's practice.

EVEN WHILE the Flyers were preparing to take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at home Wednesday night, some players found a few moments to get in front of a television to see the tail end of a wild seventh inning going on in Toronto. Brayden Schenn said he was watching with Wayne Simmonds and Jason LaBarbera. There were also a group of Flyers players not watching, warming up in the open area on the event-level of Wells Fargo Center, kicking a soccer ball around.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, in their only Wells Fargo appearance of the season, will provide a major challenge for the Flyers on Wednesday. "They have great skills, great players and a very good power play," goalie Michal Neuvirth said after taking part in an optional practice Tuesday in Voorhees. "We have to make sure we don't spend too much time in the penalty box. " Starting goalie Steve Mason, who missed Monday's 1-0 win over Florida because of a family matter, will take part in Wednesday's morning skate, but the Flyers wouldn't say if we would play in the game.

When retired defenseman Kimmo Timonen is honored before Wednesday's game against Chicago at the Wells Fargo Center, the players on the Flyers bench can be excused if they nearly pound holes in the sideboards with their heartfelt stick-tap salute. Timonen, a longtime Flyers defenseman before being dealt to Chicago last February and winning his first Stanley Cup, was not only a terrific player and leader, but he defined perseverance during an exceptional 16-year career. "He played through so many injuries and was just a warrior out there," winger Matt Read said after Tuesday's optional practice in Voorhees.

IT WAS a game that general manager Ron Hextall called "critical" seven hours before the puck dropped, a strong statement given the infancy of the 82-game season. But coming off Saturday's embarrassing loss in South Florida, the Flyers needed to treat game No. 3 of the year - a rematch against the Florida Panthers - almost like a must-win. For a team that has started slow the last two seasons, a loss in last night's home opener - and with the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks coming to town tomorrow - would have been a downer.

Different lineup, different result. Way different. Two nights after they suffered a six-goal loss in Florida, the Flyers rebounded Monday and defeated the same Panthers, 1-0, in their home opener at the loud, sold-out Wells Fargo Center. Emergency starter Michal Neuvirth, in his first career start for the Flyers, made 31 saves and recorded his first shutout since 2012, giving Dave Hakstol his first NHL coaching victory. "I was feeling good the whole day, and the guys did an outstanding job - they had great sticks and so many blocked shots," Neuvirth said.

TAMPA, Fla. - To get a break from hockey, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper spent the night before Thursday's season opener going to the movies to watch The Martian. Thursday, on a more familiar planet, the hockey universe saw the Flyers skate stride for stride with the defending Eastern Conference champion Lightning at sold-out Amalie Arena. But it wasn't enough. Tampa Bay 3, Flyers 2. In overtime. Defenseman Jason Garrison scored on a breakaway with 2 minutes, 43 seconds left in overtime to give Tampa Bay the win. It was his second goal of the game and it ruined the NHL coaching debut of the Flyers' Dave Hakstol.

Much-maligned defenseman Luke Schenn will be in the Flyers' starting lineup Thursday for their opener in Tampa. Schenn was with the since-demoted Andrew MacDonald on the fourth pairing for most of training camp, but he beat out Radko Gudas for the last defensive spot. A stay-at-home defender, Schenn, 25, will be paired with the puck-moving Evgeny Medvedev, the Flyers' best defenseman in training camp. "Pretty much all week long, Luke's been in that position - he's been rock-solid from the start of camp," rookie coach Dave Hakstol said after practice Wednesday in Voorhees.
