The Danny Markov era was ushered in last night at the Wachovia Center, where the new Flyer missed on a couple of hard shots on net and made a punishing check on Darren Langdon in 25 minutes of ice time. None of that factored into a weak 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens as the Russian defenseman made his Flyers debut after being traded from Carolina earlier in the day for forward Justin Williams. "It takes time - too much info before the game," Markov said of absorbing coach Ken Hitchcock's systems.

You didn't have to be a psychic to know how this game was going to unfold. Two wins over New Jersey, a tie against Dallas . . . yep, the Flyers were ripe for a letdown yesterday against the lowly Pittsburgh Penguins. However, that letdown came during the game, not at the start. Even so, Ken Hitchcock's crew pulled off a 3-3 tie with the Penguins at Mellon Arena and clinched a playoff berth for the 10th consecutive season. "It's been like that some of these games lately," Flyers winger Sami Kapanen said.

The Flyers yesterday re-signed veteran defenseman Mattias Timander to a two-year deal. Terms were not available. Timander, 30, played 34 games for the Flyers last season after the team acquired him from the New York Islanders in January amidst a plague of injuries to other defensemen. He had two goals, five assists and a plus-minus rating of 15 for the season. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Timander was among the NHL players who made plans to play in Europe in anticipation of an NHL work stoppage this fall.

Flyers backup goalie Sean Burke underwent hip surgery yesterday in Pittsburgh, and defenseman Danny Markov was doing well after a shoulder operation Thursday, according to Peter DeLuca, the team's orthopedic surgeon. Burke's surgery, which took about 2 1/2 hours, was performed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center St. Margaret, where starting goalie Robert Esche underwent the same procedure June 1. With both goalies, specialist Mark Phillipone repaired a torn labrum in the left hip. The labrum is a rim of cartilage around the socket.

Justin Williams smiles when former Flyers teammates tell him how much coach Ken Hitchcock liked him as a player - even after he was traded in January to Carolina for defenseman Danny Markov. "I've heard things that Hitch really liked me," Williams said yesterday. "You see the irony of it, because he was really all over me. But he says he liked me as a player. "There are a lot of Flyers now I talk to who tell me Hitch is all over them. But that doesn't mean he doesn't like them as players.

New Jersey Devils forward Bobby Holik was suspended for one game yesterday by the NHL for hitting Carolina's Rod Brind'Amour in the face with his stick. Brind'Amour needed seven stitches for a cut above his left eye after being hit by Holik in the third period of the Hurricanes' 4-2 win over the Devils on Saturday. Holik missed last night's game against Florida and lost $18,041.24 in salary. His penalty looked vicious on replay. After losing a faceoff to Brind'Amour, Holik drilled the former Flyer on the side of the head with the butt end of his stick.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, which is why Flyers general manager Bob Clarke sent promising 22-year-old winger Justin Williams to the Carolina Hurricanes yesterday for 27-year-old defenseman Danny Markov. Forget the age difference. Markov could replace 37-year-old Eric Weinrich, whose contract expires after this season. The contract of Chris Therien, 32, also is up in July. Markov played last night against Montreal. "He's a gritty, real solid defenseman," Clarke said.

Here's our plus/minus on those trades. Dec. 16: Defensive prospect Jeff Woywitka was traded to Edmonton for center Mike Comrie. Comrie was a bad fit and eventually was traded two months later.

TO WANDER around the Flyers' dressing room during their playoff interregnum - no start date for the next round, no opponent yet identified, no questions worth asking after the first day - is to witness the impossible: Defensemen. Lots of them. Seemingly growing healthier. Depth getting deeper. The venerable-and-essential Kimmo Timonen, who has been patched together physically for months now, talks about what could end up being a weeklong layoff and smiles easily and says, "To be honest, I need it. " But to walk among the rest of the defensemen at their locker stalls is to see legitimate hope that Andrej Meszaros and Nicklas Grossmann could be back at some point from their injuries, and legitimate production from Erik Gustafsson as a fill-in at the end of the Pittsburgh series.

A change in philosophy will guide the Flyers next season, and club chairman Ed Snider already has imparted it to general manager Bob Clarke: No more trading youth and draft picks for veteran players. "We're going back to our roots," Snider said yesterday at the Flyers Skate Zone in the Far Northeast, where he and 200 children from the School District of Philadelphia celebrated the successful first year of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation.

They have baked pretzels, rung the opening bell at the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, scooped water ice, and cooked cheesesteaks. The Flyers wanted fans to know they have returned to Philadelphia. Today, they want you to know they're back on the ice after a yearlong lockout as training camp opens with 52 players - including the Phantoms - at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, Camden County. "This is one team where there wasn't a whole lot broken," winger Mike Knuble said. "A few bounces here and there, and they're in the Stanley Cup Finals in '04.

It was a recurring nightmare for several members of the Flyers' brass. Visions of Marian Hossa, Daniel Alfredsson, Joe Thornton, Dany Heatley, Mats Sundin, Vincent Lecavalier and Jaromir Jagr - all coming across the blue line with speed. Who among the Flyers' defense was big enough to stop them? Late Monday night, in a swift assault on free agency, general manager Bob Clarke addressed that concern. He added a hefty dose of fear on defense, signing 6-foot-5, 235-pound twin towers Derian Hatcher and Mike Rathje.

Think about the Eastern Conference, which has Mats Sundin, Jaromir Jagr, Alexei Yashin, Mario Lemieux, Joe Thornton and Vinny Lecavalier. All are big, strong forwards. Whom do the Flyers have on defense to play any of them man-to-man?
