On one hand, the Flyers have shown amazing resiliency as they have won eight games - seven since Dec. 4 - with comebacks that have erased third-period deficits. On the other hand . . . They are living too much on the edge and need to play better early in games so that the late heroics aren't needed. "Sooner or later, you're not going to win every game in the third," Brayden Schenn said after the Flyers escaped with a dramatic 4-3 win in Buffalo on Tuesday, using Vinny Lecavalier's goal with 14.8 seconds left to end a two-game losing streak.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS coach Barry Trotz was out of options. His team had not won a shootout this season (0-5). The traditionally low-scoring Predators had produced just one goal on 19 shootout attempts. And after Sean Couturier beat Carter Hutton for his first career shootout goal in an all-hands-on-deck skills competition, Trotz turned to a defenseman to keep Nashville alive. It worked. Both Couturier and Brayden Schenn gave the Flyers an opportunity to grab two full points, to walk away with their ninth third-period comeback win of the season, and their second in as many nights.

FOR A MOMENT in Buffalo on Tuesday night, Wayne Simmonds cheered when Scott Hartnell blocked a vicious slap shot. Hartnell's willingness to sacrifice his body prevented a scoring chance. It wasn't until Hartnell limped back to the bench and down the tunnel to the locker room that it hit Simmonds: That one shot could have cost him one-third of his red-hot line. "I was a little worried there," Simmonds said. "We've been thriving. The last thing you want is for one of the guys to go down.

BUFFALO - Jhonas Enroth stood in his crease in disbelief. With his stick laying on the ice to his right, he stared intently at the First Niagara Center video board, trying to get some glimpse as to how the Flyers finally solved him. Until that point, with 6:32 to play in the third period last night, he was single-handedly willing his team to two points. That's when Brayden Schenn was the recipient of a fortunate bounce. Andrej Meszaros' point shot bounced off the boards to Enroth's right, took a strange angle and found Schenn at the far post with a wide-open net. It was an especially auspicious angle for the Flyers, one that you would have tested out in geometry class using a mirror.

NEW YORK - Flyers forward Steve Downie didn't hide his disappointment over being a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the New York Rangers. It was the first time he was a healthy scratch since the Oct. 31 trade with Colorado that returned him to the Flyers for Max Talbot. Downie began his career with the Flyers after being selected in the first round of the 2005 draft. "It wasn't my decision," Downie said after Sunday's morning skate at Madison Square Garden. "I want to play.

It wasn't too long ago that Flyers fans were routinely booing the home team and chanting for the general manager to be fired. Remember? Ah, that was in October and early November, back when the Flyers won just two of their first nine games at the mostly quiet Wells Fargo Center. Since then, they are 10-0 at home, with all of the victories in regulation. The fans are cheering again. "The energy at home is unbelievable right now," winger Zac Rinaldo said. "We're just taking advantage of an intimidating building to play in," said goalie Steve Mason, whose team will host dangerous Tampa Bay at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Flyers winger Matt Read has concussion symptoms and will be sidelined through the weekend and perhaps longer, general manager Paul Holmgren said before Wednesday's game against Montreal. Read appeared to take an elbow to the head in a 4-1 win in Calgary on Dec. 31. At the time, he passed all baseline tests, Holmgren said. That seemed to rule out a concussion. But Read's eye problems continued, and Holmgren said he probably has a concussion. "Initially, we didn't think that.

NEWARK, N.J. - For most players, an important divisional game less than 9 hours after your childhood dreams were shattered would require some sort of medication to keep the emotional roller coaster on the tracks. But not for Claude Giroux. Minutes after he was notified by Steve Yzerman that he would not be a member of Team Canada, he said, "It's a good thing we have a game tonight. " His teammates, Jake Voracek and Wayne Simmonds, had a simple message for the Devils - and any team the Flyers play in the next few weeks: Watch out. "He's not a guy to sit in the corner and cry," Voracek said.

NEWARK, N.J. - Flyers center Claude Giroux, disappointed earlier in the day when he was left off the Canadian Olympic team, took out his frustration on the New Jersey Devils, while Scott Hartnell continued a scoring streak that capped off an impressive road trip. But it was Brayden Schenn, injured earlier in the game, who put the Flyers over the top. Schenn scored on a close-range shot with 3 minutes, 10 seconds left in overtime Tuesday night as the Flyers defeated the New Jersey Devils, 3-2, at the Prudential Center.

NEWARK, N.J. - After 5 months of holding his breath, Claude Giroux admitted it would be difficult to sleep last night. The day he'd been waiting for - his Christmas for a hockey player growing up in Hearst, Ontario - was yesterday. His childhood dream instead turned into a nightmare that won't soon leave him. The Flyers' captain is not going to Sochi, Russia, to help Team Canada defend its magical gold medal from Vancouver 4 years ago. Giroux, 25, was left off Canada's Olympic roster when it was announced yesterday morning in Toronto.
