TURNS OUT, the chain around Brayden Schenn's neck was more choker collar than leash - given how quickly and how hard it was yanked by Craig Berube last week. Schenn's experiment on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek did not last five full periods during the regular season. He was pulled from the line during the second period of last Thursday's loss to New Jersey. It wasn't just a momentary shake-up, either. When the puck dropped on Saturday night against Montreal, it was Michael Raffl flanked to Giroux's left for the opening draw.

Like Domonic Brown, Claude Giroux will benefit from being on a team with a lot of established players who know the ropes. The Flyers have a 25-year-old captain in Mike Richards who will be expected to shoulder the heavy lifting. Giroux has been a big-time point generator at every level. During his rookie season with the Gatineau Olympiques in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he had 39 goals and 103 points in just 69 games. The Flyers drafted him 22nd overall in 2006, and he proceeded to post two more hundred-point seasons in juniors, including 112 points in 63 games in his second season for Gatineau.

Claude Giroux was snubbed. Again. With hockey in a deep freeze, thanks to the NHL's second labor stoppage in 8 years, the Flyers' star - whom many consider to be Philadelphia's most electrifying athlete - dropped to fifth place in the Daily News' annual Sportsperson of the Year balloting. In other words, Giroux finished further back in his own city among sports writers than he did (fourth) in Hart Trophy voting last season for hockey's Most Valuable Player award. Full disclosure: This Flyers beat writer voted for Giroux as No. 1 on his ballot, ahead of Mike Trout, Doug Collins, Carlos Ruiz and Bill O'Brien.

AFTER SUSTAINING a neck injury while playing in Germany on Nov. 17, Flyers star Claude Giroux was back on the ice in Ottawa on Wednesday. Giroux, 24, participated in a 90-minute skate at the Carleton Ice House in Ottawa, where he makes his summer home. "I skated for the first time today," Giroux said in a message to the Daily News. "It was a slow skate. Just trying to get the legs going again. " Giroux is not fully recovered and said he had "no idea" when he would be back at 100 percent.

The concussion changes the perception, just a little. Even if his recovery is complete, it is hard to forget a period of December days when just a slow turn on the ice left him feeling sick. That was Claude Giroux's existence as the year neared its end. That the feeling passed is to be celebrated. He can only hope that that the healing is complete, and that 2011 will be remembered for what it was. That is, the year he became a star. That is the word: star. As he sat down with his concussion, Giroux led the National Hockey League in points.

The player known to his teammates as "G" will wear the "C. " Star center Claude Giroux was named the 19th captain in Flyers history, the club announced Tuesday night. Giroux, 25, replaces the injured Chris Pronger, whose career is likely over because of post-concussion syndrome. All week, players, coaches, and management types took turns praising Giroux's leadership and saying he was ready to assume the captain's role, so it became a foregone conclusion before the team made the announcement.

DALLAS - A few days ago, winger Matt Read predicted that the Flyers' three-game road trip would be the "turnaround of our season" and that the team would "start to learn how to win games. " On Saturday night, after a wild and crazy finish at the stunned American Airlines Center, Read's words looked prophetic. The Flyers made a stirring, late comeback to send the game into overtime, then won it, 6-5, on a power-play goal by Claude Giroux with 2 minutes, 11 seconds left in OT. It was the third straight Flyers (1-2-2)

THE OPTIMIST rolled out of the Flyers' dressing room last night feeling confident, knowing that his team erased not one but two daunting deficits against a clear-cut Stanley Cup contender before falling in a skills competition. "I think this was our most competitive, for me, of the four ," coach Craig Berube said. "I think for an overall 60 minutes, this was the best one. The result wasn't what we wanted. " The pessimist trudged out of the Wells Fargo Center after last night's 4-3 shootout loss to Anaheim feeling the loneliness of a zero in the win column, knowing the Flyers still have to face six of the last eight Stanley Cup winners to close out October.

Wayne Simmonds threw his arms in the air as he embraced Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Vinny Lecavalier while the frenzied sellout crowd stood in disbelief Thursday night. Simmonds knew. The right winger knew his shot had beaten the buzzer to end the astonishing last few minutes of the second period, knew the Flyers had come all the way back from a 3-0 deficit, knew this game suddenly had a different feel to it. But the Flyers couldn't sustain the momentum. Dainius Zubrus scored what proved to be the game-winner as the New Jersey Devils outlasted the Flyers, 6-4, and ruined their home opener.

BOSTON - An ineffective power play and a stagnant attack ruined the Flyers' season opener Wednesday night at TD Garden. So did Chris Kelly. With 1 minute, 51 seconds left in regulation, Kelly's goal gave the Boston Bruins a 2-1 win before a frenzied crowd. Adam McQuaid's shot appeared to graze goalie Steve Mason's blocker and fluttered into the air before dropping near the crease, where Kelly tapped it into the net to snap a 1-1 tie. "He broke his stick," Mason said of McQuaid's shot, "and it threw the timing off. The thing that threw me off the most, two guys skated in front and I lost sight of the puck . . . and it landed right in the crease and they were able to put it home.

LUKE SCHENN laughed. Because, well, there was really nothing else he could do. He was still in a state of disbelief after the Flyers' 6-4 loss to the Devils last night. The only New Jersey goal to which Schenn wasn't either victim or witness was the empty-netter that Mike Cammalleri scored to seal a disheartening home debut. One deflected off his stick past goalie Steve Mason. On another, Mason's line of sight was cut off by Schenn in front. "I'd say some were bad bounces," Schenn said.

BOSTON - The Flyers open their season Wednesday night by playing on the road against a Boston Bruins team that is favored to win the Eastern Conference. "It's a good measuring stick," defenseman Nick Grossmann said after practice Tuesday at TD Garden. The Bruins outscored the Flyers, 14-6, while sweeping all three games last season. "They've been one of the better teams in the league for a good five years now, and they present a good challenge for us," right winger Wayne Simmonds said.

Winger Wayne Simmonds practiced for the second day since he injured his left foot and had no ill effects, increasing the chance that he will play Wednesday for the Flyers in their opener at Boston. "Obviously I hope I can play, but that comes down to the coaches and management," Simmonds said Tuesday. "He looked good, but no reason to make any decisions yet," coach Craig Berube said. Alternate captains As expected, Simmonds and defenseman Mark Streit were named the team's alternate captains, positions held last season by the traded Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen, who is sidelined by blood clots.

BOSTON - Maybe Ed Snider's historically itchy trigger finger is to blame. Maybe the pundits just figure the Flyers won't be a very good team this year. Or, perhaps it's because Craig Berube was hired by Paul Holmgren, meaning he wouldn't necessarily be Ron Hextall's choice to coach the team. Either way, Las Vegas oddsmakers installed Berube with 4-to-1 odds to be the first coach fired in the NHL this season - behind only Toronto's Randy Carlyle and the Islanders' Jack Capuano.

BOSTON - Claude Giroux's last 14 months have included finger surgery after his golf club shattered, an arrest for grabbing a policeman's buttocks in an Ottawa bar - "my misguided attempt at humor," he said - and a lower-body injury suffered 15 minutes into this season's training camp. "Bad luck," Giroux said, "kind of follows me. " Not on the ice. The Flyers captain has blossomed into one of the NHL's elite players. Giroux finished third in the NHL in scoring with 86 points and third in the MVP voting last season.
