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 - 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.

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.

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.

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.

ORLEANS, Mass. - Ed Snider thinks right winger Jake Voracek is on the verge of NHL stardom. "This kid," Snider said early in training camp, "has a chance to be a superstar. " Is the Flyers' chairman, mindful that Voracek was part of the package the Flyers acquired in 2011 for scoring machine Jeff Carter, overdosing on hyperbole? Or is the 25-year-old Voracek, coming off the best season of his six-year career, ready to take the next step in his development? Relayed Snider's comments, Voracek smiled.

CRAIG BERUBE is in midseason form. This can be a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to an NHL head coach finishing up his first-ever training camp. But when the team in front of you has been notorious for starting poorly over the last couple of seasons, it is, for him, the only way to go. So the quotes keep jumping from the page, as tonight the Flyers finish up a brutal preseason schedule that seems more like an act of revenge than one of negligence. He's "disappointed in our veterans and the way they performed" one night, fried at his shoddy defense the next.

CLAUDE GIROUX took a squirt from a water bottle and looked skyward toward the scoreboard. Only a little more than 100 seconds remained in the third period of the Flyers' utterly inconsequential exhibition against a roster resembling the Rangers in uniform only last night. Giroux had not been on the ice for nearly 8 minutes, part of Craig Berube's plan to manage the captain's workload in his first game of any kind since April 30. But the Flyers were on the power play. And Giroux wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to try to create chemistry with his new unit.

Claude Giroux, playing in his first preseason game, made a solid return Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Sidelined by an undisclosed lower-body injury suffered 15 minutes into the first day of training camp, the Flyers captain made dazzling first-period passes and spent lots of time weaving around New York Rangers defenders. Giroux showed a bit of rust, but he still played 16 minutes, 53 seconds - the most among Flyers forwards - despite getting just five third-period shifts.
