When the Flyers signed former NHL scoring champion Vinny Lecavalier to a five-year, $22.5 million free-agent contract last summer, they didn't do it because they thought they were getting a power-play specialist and a fourth-line center. But that was Lecavalier's new role Friday night against visiting Toronto. In a stunning move, Flyers coach Craig Berube demoted Lecavalier to the fourth line. Lecavalier had been playing on the second line at left wing, but was back at his natural position - center - for Friday's game.

Shaggy Flyers winger Jake Voracek thrust his arms into the air after tipping in Scott Hartnell's third-period floater from the point, somehow tying a game that seemingly belonged to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. But a little over two minutes later, Dwight King converted a two-on-one with Slava Voynov midway through the final period, giving Los Angeles a 3-2 victory at the Wells Fargo Center and ending the Flyers' season-best five-game winning streak. "We gave ourselves a chance to win the game in the third period, but we didn't play a very good first and second period," said winger Matt Read, who got the Flyers within 2-1 with a goal 29 seconds into the final period.

The goal light flashed red and the horn blew and this was going to be such sweet relief for Vinny Lecavalier, such sweet, sweet relief. He was alone in front of the Los Angeles Kings' goal, the puck on his stick after a slick little backhand pass from Brayden Schenn, his eyes locked on 23 square feet of untended net, and at another time, in another year, this would have been so easy for him. Fifteen seasons in the NHL, 398 career goals, a...

A BROKEN FOOT sustained while blocking a shot robbed Jeff Carter of what should have been his first game in Philadelphia as an opposing player. It was November 2011, about 5 months after the Flyers traded him to the Columbus Blue Jackets, and while he made the trip to his former home arena, Carter did not play. So last night, 33 months after he and Mike Richards were dealt on the same June day, Carter, in his third season with the Los Angeles Kings, made his return to the Wells Fargo Center ice. It marked the first time both he and Richards, who teamed up to help the Kings win the 2012 Stanley Cup, played together as visitors in Philadelphia.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

The Flyers, the team that got its coach fired after three games and had the worst start (1-7) in franchise history, continued their remarkable turnaround Saturday afternoon. They defeated the best-in-the-NHL St. Louis Blues at the Wells Fargo Center, 4-1, and increased their winning streak to a season-high five games. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock is right: The Flyers are a scary opponent these days. "We looked at this four- or five-game stretch as a big measuring stick, to see how we do against some of the best teams in the league," said winger Scott Hartnell, mindful the winning streak includes victories against NHL powers Pittsburgh (twice)

The captain put the Flyers on his back Tuesday night. Claude Giroux, the NHL's leading scorer for the last three-plus months, scored on a drive from the top of the right circle with 4.2 seconds left in overtime, lifting the Flyers to a riveting 3-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. With a sellout crowd watching at the earsplitting Wells Fargo Center, Giroux enabled the Flyers to come all the way back from an early 2-0 deficit. Since Dec. 11, Giroux has 51 points, tops in the NHL, and the Flyers are 18-2-1 this season when he scores a goal.

MICHAEL RAFFL said it Saturday night - and it has become sports cliche. "The point is huge," Raffl said. "Every point is important. " Yet, in the NHL, it is the nightly reality. And the Stanley Cup playoff cut line - the line between making and missing out on millions of dollars in revenue - is razor thin. For the Flyers, who have garnered at least one point in nine of their last 11 games, the playoff picture is becoming more in-focus with each and every game. Their magic number is now in their sights.

TORONTO - Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen has been in the NHL for 15 seasons, but he had never scored against Toronto. Until Saturday night. Timonen, who will turn 39 later this month, scored two goals to dramatically tie the score at 2, but it wasn't enough. Former Flyer Joffrey Lupul won it with 2 minutes, 39 seconds left in overtime, tapping in Dion Phaneuf's pass to give Toronto a riveting, 4-3 victory at the Air Canada Centre. The Flyers, who nearly earned their 12th win after trailing in the third period this season, salvaged a point and are on a 3-0-1 run. "The point is huge.

The Flyers bolstered their defense for the stretch run Tuesday, acquiring defenseman Andrew MacDonald from the New York Islanders for two draft picks and minor-league forward Matt Mangene. MacDonald, 27, a mobile and gritty defenseman, leads the NHL with 198 blocked shots and is eighth in the NHL in average ice time per game, 25 minutes, 25 seconds. The Flyers sent the Islanders a third-round pick in this year's draft and a second-round selection in 2015. MacDonald had four goals, 20 assists, and a minus-19 rating this season with the lowly Islanders.
