The Flyers are two games away from an early summer, trailing their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Pittsburgh Penguins by two games to none. Tonight in Pittsburgh, they will try to get back into the series amid a pair of lineup changes. The biggest change involves dropping center Keith Primeau from the first line to the second and moving Daymond Langkow up one line as Primeau's replacement. The other involves defenseman Adam Burt's entering the lineup in place of Mark Eaton, a rookie.

On a night when the Flyers got balanced production, Hurricane Daymond continued to pile up points. The Flyers scored five consecutive goals and roared past the Florida Panthers, 5-2, last night at the National Car Rental Center. That kept the Flyers unbeaten in eight games - 5-0-3 - under coach Bill Barber as they travel to Tampa Bay tonight to meet the Lightning. "We're confident; we trust everyone on the ice," Jody Hull said. "When you have that, you play loose, but you play confident.

Bill Barber promised a different look in practice. More skating. More emotion. More movement. Four games into his coaching regime, the Flyers' daily drills aren't all that different from those of the past. But the tempo, the lack of downtime, the emphasis on constant movement in practices is very different from the practices of Barber's predecessor, Craig Ramsay. There are no side talks along the boards, no stoppages of play. It's motion, skating, go to the boards for the next drill, then back to skating.

This is the time of the year when Northerners come to Florida to feel the therapeutic effects of the sun on their frostbitten bones. The Flyers experienced none of those feel-good sensations yesterday, though, as their midwinter funk continued with their season-high third straight defeat, a 3-1 loss to the Florida Panthers that left coach Roger Neilson seething. Neilson wasn't mad at the Flyers. He said his club, which has scored just two goals in its last three games, had played well enough to win. What angered Neilson was the penalty that referee Dan Marouelli whistled on Daymond Langkow for holding the stick of Florida defenseman Todd Simpson in front of the Flyers' bench 7 minutes, 43 seconds into the third period.

They've tried just about everyone at the point on the power play, including team captain Eric Lindros. So why not a relative newcomer? That's what the Flyers did last night. Coach Roger Neilson put Daymond Langkow on the point during the second-unit power play, and it resulted in a goal. Langkow played the point on the power play in juniors, which was a while ago. "I didn't mind being up there," Langkow said. "We seemed to work hard to get some chances. " The Flyers got two power-play goals in the 2-2 tie against the Islanders.

Bob Clarke confirmed that he has received the signed Eric Lindros contract for next season and has forwarded it to the league, meaning Lindros does not become a restricted free agent today. Lindros will be paid $8.5 million plus unspecified incentives that are believed to be worth a few hundred thousand dollars at the most. Colorado's Peter Forsberg and Anaheim's Paul Kariya recently have agreed to deals worth $30 million apiece over the next three years, but Carl Lindros, Eric's father and agent, has said that "now is not the time to be thinking about a long-term contract.

Flyers center Daymond Langkow, sidelined since Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final series, estimated there is a "50-50" chance he can play in tonight's Game 5 against the New Jersey Devils. Langkow, leveled by a Scott Stevens check on which he suffered a concussion, said yesterday that he feels "pretty good. Hopefully, I can get back in there. " He said he would have to get a final check-over by a team physician today. Also scheduling a doctor's visit for today was another Flyers center, Eric Lindros.

You can tell fans like Sandy McCarthy, and not just because dropping the gloves has long been popular in Philadelphia. When McCarthy is on the ice, fans see him trying, straining to turn, giving extra effort to line up a hit, using every bit of his concentration to get the puck to stay on his stick. McCarthy doesn't have John LeClair's hands or Eric Lindros's wheels. He has built a seven-year NHL career mostly on being 6-3, 255 pounds, and willing and able to swing his fists.

Bob Clarke has long coveted tough guy Gino Odjick. "When Pat Quinn was [general manager] in Vancouver, he would never trade him," Clarke, the Flyers' general manager, recalled last night. Yesterday, Clarke finally got Odjick, a 29-year-old, 6-3, 227-pound winger, from the New York Islanders, for winger Mikael Andersson and a fifth-round draft pick the Flyers had acquired from Carolina in the Keith Primeau trade. It was a curious move, in that the Flyers already dress Sandy McCarthy and Craig Berube, certified NHL heavyweights.

Chris Therien finally got a goal. It came Saturday on a power play against Montreal. He put a hard slapshot past goalie Jose Theodore high into the net. "I had a couple of good chances to get some goals in that one," Therien said. "I don't know what it's been this season with my scoring. I feel snakebit. " Therien said he was thinking about asking Flyers goalie John Vanbiesbrouck for help in deciding the best place to shoot from when he pinches between the circles, about 30 feet from the net. "Maybe he can tell me what I should be doing in a situation like that," Therien said.

LAS VEGAS - In October, when hockey becomes a blip on the Philadelphia sports radar again, the Flyers will see a familiar name on their Opening Night roster: Ian Laperriere. But it's highly unlikely that Laperriere will be on the ice in uniform. Multiple neurologists and concussion experts have advised Laperriere, 37, to hang up his skates for good. He has not played since the Flyers were eliminated in the Stanley Cup finals by Chicago last June. Laperriere sat out last season, which he called the toughest of his 16-year career, with post-concussion symptoms and an eye injury sustained when blocking a puck with his face earlier in the 2010 playoff run. But it's accurate to say that the Flyers will not have a bigger supporter - or more dedicated teammate - than Laperriere in their locker room next season.

Ian Laperriere has not played a single game for the Flyers this season, yet he might be the only one to win an individual award at the NHL's annual awards show in Las Vegas on June 22. Laperriere, 37, has been named a finalist - with former Flyers Ray Emery and Daymond Langkow - for the 2011 Bill Masterton Trophy, which is awarded "to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. " Laperriere has missed the entire season due to postconcussion symptoms and eye problems stemming from a shot he blocked with his face last April in the Flyers' first-round playoff series against New Jersey.

The Flyers began planning for tomorrow's NHL draft in Nashville two years ago. Back then, scouts throughout the league were urging their personnel directors and general managers to stockpile picks. Don't waste them on 2002, they said. That was a weak draft with a drop-off in the second round. Wait for 2003, when there would be an abundance of 18-year-old prospects with size and speed. Some scouts say this is the deepest draft since the league began conducting them in 1963.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Ed Jovanovski will be sidelined 4 to 6 weeks with a broken foot. He was on crutches at practice yesterday. Jovanovski, a member of Canada's Olympic champion hockey team, left Vancouver's 7-3 victory over Anaheim on Saturday night 2 minutes into the third period. "It's not good news, it's a fracture and it's tough," Jovanovski said. "Four to 6 weeks is the long end, but hopefully, I'll be back in 2 to 3. "My foot planted and I got twisted around.

Who would have thought Daymond Langkow could make such a transformation in the desert? During the 2 1/2 years the 5-foot-8 center was a Flyer, people kept waiting for him to blossom into a 20- or 25-goal scorer. The most he ever got in a season was 18 goals, in 2000-01. Langkow was traded to Phoenix in the summer of 2001 for a draft pick. In essence, he was compensation to the Coyotes for allowing the Flyers the right to sign free agent Jeremy Roenick ahead of the July 1 deadline.

It wasn't just Halloween last night at the First Union Center. It was also Homecoming. At one end of the players' benches were Brian Boucher and Daymond Langkow, back in Philadelphia as Phoenix Coyotes for the first time. At the other end were former Coyotes Michal Handzus and Robert Esche. Handzus scored the key goal and Esche gained his third win after making 18 saves. All four figured in the scoring one way or another as the Flyers carved up the Coyotes like pumpkins, 6-2, to remain in first place in the Atlantic Division, with 16 points.

The Flyers came to the NHL entry draft looking to add depth at defense, grab a goalie or two, and maybe get a center. They didn't think they had a prayer to move up in the first round. But, amid gasps from other general managers, they managed to convince Tampa Bay's rookie GM into giving them his fourth overall pick on Friday night. After two days of drafting at Air Canada Centre, the Flyers went home with seven prospects: four defensemen, two forwards and one goalie. "We had a good draft.

Phoenix Coyotes forward Daymond Langkow and Anaheim Mighty Ducks defenseman Vitaly Vishnevski were suspended by the NHL yesterday for their roles in an altercation during a Sept. 21 preseason game. Langkow was suspended for four preseason games and fined $1,000, while Vishnevski got a one-game suspension and a $1,000 fine. The league suspended Langkow, a former Flyer, for his cross-check to the back of Vishnevski's neck. Vishnevski was disciplined for elbowing Langkow. Toronto Maple Leafs left winger Gary Roberts was suspended for three preseason games by the NHL for abusing an official during a game against the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.

An arbitrator yesterday awarded Phoenix Coyotes center Daymond Langkow a two-year, $4.2 million contract. The 25-year-old Langkow will earn $1.95 million for the 2001-02 season and $2.25 million for 2002-03. The Coyotes acquired the 5-foot-11, 180-pound center from the Flyers on July 2 for two draft picks. The Coyotes lost free-agent center Jeremy Roenick to the Flyers. Langkow played 71 games last season for the Flyers. He was fourth in scoring with 13 goals and 41 assists, his second consecutive 50-plus-point season.

The Flyers dealt underachieving center Daymond Langkow to Phoenix yesterday for two draft picks. The acquisition of free agent Jeremy Roenick, plus the acquisition of center Jiri Dopita last month, made the 24-year-old Langkow the odd man out. General manager Bob Clarke insisted that trading him to the center-less Coyotes was not quid pro quo for Phoenix allowing the Flyers to negotiate early with Roenick and announce that agreement last...
