The New York Rangers have added veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals one day after Marc Staal was struck in the right eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Flyers. Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

After his team's 2-0, title-clinching win over Tampa Bay on Monday night, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews could have handed the Stanley Cup to one of his many longtime teammates. Instead, in a classy move, he gave the iconic trophy to a defenseman who had played for Chicago for all of 31/2 months. Kimmo Timonen, 40, had waited his whole life for that moment. Timonen, the ex-Flyer whom Chicago acquired just before the trade deadline, raised the Cup triumphantly and skated around the ice while the red-clad Blackhawks fans let out a roar that lived up to the United Center's nickname: Madhouse on Madison.

The enigmatic Flyers upstaged Kimmo Timonen's emotional return to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night. Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th goal as a Flyer, Claude Giroux netted his first even-strength home tally of the season, and Steve Mason stopped 34 of 35 shots in a 4-1 victory over the powerful Chicago Blackhawks at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, who snapped a four-game losing streak, are 9-1-4 in their last 14 games against teams in playoff position. Conversely, they are 0-6-3 in their last nine games against teams that were not in playoff position when they met. "At this point, winning still feels good, but it's a sobering feeling where we are in the standings," Mason said.

THE VOICE cracked, and with it the stoicism that defines Finns. Kimmo Timonen had paused and coughed, and coughed and paused again, hoping perhaps that another question would wash over this inquiry about the night that lay ahead, and the emotions it would produce. None came, though, and so he fought through his answer with all the Sisu he could muster. "Sorry," he said, after his first attempt to choke back tears created a long pause. "I'm sure it's going to be good . . . All the things that happened here . . . Happy to be here . . . " His voice trailed off once again, and finally someone - OK, me - bailed him out. "Finns are supposed to be stoic," I said.

When Kimmo Timonen was working out and trying to return to the lineup after being sidelined by blood clots, he dreamed of skating onto the Wells Fargo Center ice this spring and being in the thick of a playoff race. On Wednesday, the veteran defenseman will get that chance. Timonen had hoped to do it for the Flyers. Instead, he and his Chicago Blackhawks will be facing the Orange and Black. The Flyers dealt Timonen, now 40, to Chicago last month for a second-round draft pick in June and a conditional selection that could be a second-rounder in 2016.

EDMONTON, Alberta - Just when it seemed the Flyers' season couldn't possibly get any worse . . . They blew a two-goal lead and lost to one of the NHL's bottom-feeders, Edmonton, Saturday night at Rexall Place. Ryan-Nugent Hopkins knocked in a juicy rebound allowed by backup goalie Ray Emery - the emergency starter because Steve Mason was ill - with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left in overtime, giving the Oilers a 5-4 victory. If the NHL had a mercy rule, surely the Flyers would be declared losers and the rest of their season canceled.

The respect that the Flyers have for former teammate Kimmo Timonen was on display with one laudatory comment after another the morning skate Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. Timonen was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday for a second-round pick in the June draft and a conditional fourth-rounder in 2016 that could be upgraded to as high as the second round, depending on how far the Blackhawks advance in the playoffs and how much Timonen plays. "I am just thankful I got to play with such a great guy and teammate," said Braydon Coburn, Timonen's longtime defensive partner.

THE MOMENT Kimmo Timonen learned his hockey season had been reduced to a couple of months, a few drugs and prayer in a hospital bed in Finland, he reorganized his priorities. "It wasn't about money, it wasn't about anything else," Timonen said. "The only thing I am missing is the Stanley Cup. It became my only goal to return to hockey. If I had won a Stanley Cup before, we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. " That's because Timonen, who turns 40 on March 18, would likely have decided the risk associated with a return with a blood disorder that causes blood clots too great.

Kimmo Timonen, one of the best defensemen in Flyers history, said he wanted a chance to win a Stanley Cup in the final season of his superb NHL career. On Friday night, the Flyers gave him that opportunity, sending him to the powerful Chicago Blackhawks for a second-round pick in the June draft and a conditional fourth-round selection in 2016. "The only thing I'm missing from my hockey career is a Stanley Cup," Timonen, sidelined all season because of blood clots, said in a conference call Friday night.

When NHL commissioner Gary Bettman recently asked Peter Luukko to meet with Florida Panthers owner Vinnie Viola and possibly get involved with their franchise, the former Flyers president was reluctant. Luukko, who 14 months ago abruptly resigned as president of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, was content with his new lifestyle. "I told him I had businesses I was involved with and was having a lot of fun," Luukko said Friday. "I was watching my boys play [hockey]

CHICAGO - The momentum the Flyers built with a dramatic comeback win in Dallas three nights earlier did not carry into Tuesday night at the United Center. Instead, the Flyers looked lost during an uninspired opening period in which they allowed three goals in a 2-minute, 6-second span en route to a 4-0 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Patrick Kane - whose name will live in Flyers infamy because of a certain goal in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals - had a pair of power-play tallies as Chicago (4-0-1)
