COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Flyers' last 10 games will determine the magnitude of Tuesday's hard-to-believe loss in Columbus. If they overcome that 3-2 shootout defeat and earn a playoff berth, it will be mentioned as just another hurdle that the resilient team cleared. If it costs them a playoff spot, it will be remembered as the most devastating loss of the season, a meltdown for the ages. With its goalie pulled, Columbus scored two goals in the final 64 seconds of regulation and won in the dreaded shootout.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - After serving a two-game suspension for an illegal hit, Flyers winger Chris VandeVelde remained sidelined Tuesday against Columbus. Part of a strong fourth line and penalty-killing unit, VandeVelde was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. Coach Dave Hakstol waited until after pregame warm-ups before deciding if VandeVelde would return to the lineup. Because several players were playing well, "we have tough decisions up and down the lineup, particularly in that spot," Hakstol said.

Steve Mason, the Flyers' onetime No. 1 goalie who has become a forgotten man recently, is expected to make his first start in two weeks Saturday night against his former team, Columbus. Michal Neuvirth started the last five games - and seven of the last eight - and has become rookie coach Dave Hakstol's go-to goalie. "I'm not sure what kind of title you want to put on it, but I've been counted out a lot during my career, so this is nothing new to me," Mason said after an optional practice Friday in Voorhees.
