On Oct. 8, the night of Dave Hakstol's first regular-season game as the Flyers' head coach, Nate Ewell and two other men settled at a second-floor corner table at Rivalries Sports Pub and Grill in Portland, Maine, and commandeered a television. Portland is Boston Bruins country, and since there are exactly 32 TVs at Rivalries, it's safe to assume 31 of them were tuned to the Bruins' game against the Winnipeg Jets. But Ewell, who is the deputy executive director of the nonprofit organization College Hockey Inc., and his companions - a video coordinator for the University of North Dakota men's hockey team and a reporter who covered UND - wanted to watch the Flyers play the Tampa Bay Lightning instead.

Danny Briere received several standing ovations Tuesday night, some when he was introduced before the opening faceoff and others when videos of the retired Flyers center were shown during the game. The Wells Fargo crowd didn't have many other reasons to cheer - until the hectic final minute of regulation. With goalie Steve Mason pulled for an extra attacker, Brayden Schenn tipped in Claude Giroux's shot from the top of the left circle, tying the score at 3-3 with 53.2 seconds left in the third period.

PLAYING JUNIOR hockey in Canada doesn't usually provide the typical college experience during the ages of 18 to 20. That's not to say what Daniel Briere - who played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League - is doing now is any different, really. Consider Briere's new business school training more of an apprenticeship than a traditional college. He's getting a crash course in the business of hockey. After the Gatineau, Quebec, native retired from a 17-season NHL career over the summer, Briere, 38, was approached by Flyers president Paul Holmgren, who asked the six-year Flyers forward whether he wanted the opportunity to learn.

Danny Briere, the undersized center who led the Flyers to the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, announced his retirement from hockey on Monday after a 17-year NHL career. "After taking a few weeks to think about it, it's time to hang them up and spend a little more time at home with the family," said Briere, 37, who lives in Haddonfield. ". . . The Flyers are where I played the bulk of my career. I've had a great time in Philadelphia and have been very, very fortunate to have the chance to play here.

WHEN THE season ended and the Flyers had a vacancy at head coach, general manager Ron Hextall took a ride to the Lehigh Valley to meet with Phantoms coach Terry Murray. The meeting in Allentown wasn't to let Murray know he was being considered as a replacement to Craig Berube, but rather the opposite. Hextall told Murray, a former player and head coach in the organization, who also worked with Hextall in Los Angeles, he was not being tabbed as a candidate. Murray didn't expect to be, but he told Hextall he wanted to finish his career in the NHL. So once Hextall brought in Dave Hakstol from the University of North Dakota to be the Flyers' next head coach, many thought Murray would be the perfect fit to work alongside a guy with zero NHL coaching experience.

The Flyers can exhale. Finally. Sparked by Brayden Schenn's two goals and Mark Streit's three assists, they ended a four-game losing streak Sunday by cruising past the woeful Buffalo Sabres, 5-2, at the Wells Fargo Center and moving to within two points of the second-place New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers, who stayed two points ahead of fourth-place Columbus, have four games left; the Rangers have three. "The big thing is we stuck to team defense, especially the first two periods, and didn't give them much," Schenn said after he became the team's sixth 20-goal scorer.

It was a game the Flyers could not afford to lose, and a lot of people dressed in orange and black left the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday convinced that they had not lost it. That didn't matter, of course, because referee Tom Kowal was convinced something was not kosher about what looked like Scott Hartnell's game-tying goal with 40 seconds remaining. The men behind the replay curtains up in Toronto washed their hands of the entire issue, claiming what Kowal called on the ice is not reviewable in Canada or any other country.

Third-year center Sean Couturier is known as a solid two-way player, but for the longest time, he was having trouble finding one of those ways. During a 5-2 Flyers win over the visiting Ottawa Senators on Tuesday, Couturier scored his first goal of the season, ending a 25-game scoreless streak. His last goal had come April 15 against Montreal. Couturier is among the top defensive players on the Flyers. In the plus/minus category, he leads the forwards at plus-2. Only defenseman Kimmo Timonen (plus-3)

THE FLYERS have a full-blown identity crisis. For the first time in a long time, the Flyers are stuck in neutral: Not only are they not exactly sure what kind of team they are as currently assembled, but they don't seem to be quite sure of where they are going. That is unusual. Think about it. If nothing else, the Flyers always could rely on being one of the toughest teams to play against in the NHL. But the days of the Broad Street Bullies are over. The Flyers are eighth in the NHL in fighting majors with six. They are also eighth in the league in hits with 223. They aren't going to intimidate anyone.

The offensive-challenged Flyers need to add a sniper. Badly. Paging Thomas Vanek. Paging Thomas Vanek. The Buffalo Sabres winger and the Flyers seem like a perfect match. The Flyers have scored a total of 10 goals - their lowest seven-game total to begin a season in franchise history - and they are off to an unsightly 1-6 start. Their general manager's fate may be hanging in the balance. Make a move that triggers a turnaround and Paul Holmgren's job could be secure.
