THE RUMORS are true: North Philly rapper Meek Mill and superstar Nicki Minaj are an item. How do I know? They cuddled up next to each other at Friday night's Wale show at the TLA. Mill 's buddy Rick Ross and his gal pal, Ming Lee, were also there in support of his Maybach Music Group crew, along with local boxer-turned-designer Simon "One Punch" Carr . A spy tells me that Minaj kept a low profile, hanging in...

Flyers linemates Jake Voracek, who leads the NHL with 50 points, and Claude Giroux were named to the league's all-star team Saturday. The game will be played Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio, where Voracek spent the first three seasons of his career. He was dealt to the Flyers in 2011 for Jeff Carter and a first-round draft pick that produced Sean Couturier and a third-rounder that turned out to be Nick Cousins. Voracek, a 25-year-old right winger, will be making his first appearance in an All-Star Game.

The Flyers lost more than a hockey game Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. A lot more. They lost the services of talented goalie Steve Mason for an undetermined amount of time. Mason, who took the league's fourth-best save percentage (.933) in even-strength situations into the game, suffered an apparent injury to his right knee in the opening period of the Flyers' 3-1 loss to the tight-checking Boston Bruins. The Flyers would say only that Mason suffered a lower-body injury and would be reevaluated Sunday.

Claude Giroux said he didn't think about the "little details" that might distract him during the shootout win Tuesday over the Ottawa Senators. "The first few shifts were harder than usual. After that, the adrenaline kind of takes over," Giroux said Wednesday. "You just think about what you have to do on the ice and play the game. " The little details that might have bothered other players or kept them off the ice were the eight stitches required to close a deep, nasty gash on his left leg just above the ankle.

IF RON Hextall's true, no-holds-barred appraisal of the Flyers' roster began last night against Ottawa, consider Wayne Simmonds among the first to make a statement. Simmonds imprinted his intention to remain in Philadelphia in the forehead of Senators forward Colin Greening, his second fight in as many games to spark a team that hasn't had much fight at all in the last 2 weeks. "It was a rather mellow game," Simmonds said. "I was trying to do whatever I could to get the guys going.

After taking part in pregame warm-ups, Flyers captain Claude Giroux decided he could be effective enough to play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. Giroux, who began the night tied for fourth in the NHL with 43 points, centered a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek. Earlier in the day, Giroux skated gingerly and did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate in Voorhees. Coach Craig Berube said that Giroux - who suffered a severe skate cut near his left ankle in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Friday and missed the next game - had been cleared by doctors to play, but that it depended on his comfort level.

After being away from the Wells Fargo Center for 19 days, the Flyers returned home Tuesday night and ended their five-game losing streak in dramatic fashion. Wayne Simmonds scored the game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout as the Flyers outlasted Ottawa, 2-1, at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason was brilliant in the shootout (four stops on five shots) and the 65 minutes as the Flyers snapped a 10-game, two-year losing streak in shootouts. They had been 0-5 in shootouts this season, and are now 28-56 since the breakaway competition started in 2005-06.

RALEIGH, N.C. - No one knows how long it will last, but Vinny Lecavalier has been the Flyers' most productive player recently. The same Vinny Lecavalier whom general manager Ron Hextall tried to trade last summer and probably would still deal if the right opportunity arose. The same Vinny Lecavalier who was embarrassingly banished to the bench for seven games from Dec. 2 to Dec. 16. The same Vinny Lecavalier who has been forced to learn a new position for much of the time since Craig Berube became the head coach early last season.

NEWARK, N.J. - About two hours before the opening faceoff at the Prudential Center on Saturday night, Flyers coach Craig Berube said the availability of Claude Giroux hinged on how the captain felt during warm-ups. Giroux's absence from the 15-minute pregame skate offered a swift answer to that question. With the freaky lower left leg laceration he suffered the prior night keeping Giroux off the ice, the Flyers were tasked with trying to stop the bleeding of a four-game losing streak without their best player.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Exhale, Flyers fans. Claude Giroux's gruesome-looking lower-leg injury Friday night wasn't as bad as it appeared. Giroux was stitched near his left ankle during the third period of the Flyers' 2-1 loss to lowly Carolina at PNC Arena, but the team announced he would probably play Saturday in New Jersey. "I'm not a doctor or anything, but I probably got lucky there," Giroux said. The Flyers' season probably flashed in front of their collective eyes when Giroux, their star center, had to be helped to the locker room early in the third period.
