The Flyers have reportedly acquired their second defenseman in three days. Pavel Kubina, the righthanded shooting defenseman from the Tampa Bay Lightning, was acquired by the Flyers on Saturday evening for two draft picks. As of Saturday evening the Flyers hadn't confirmed the news, first reported by Bob McKenzie of TSN. One reason the Flyers likely aren't making any comment that they could be awaiting league approval. In addition, the Flyers must make corresponding moves to get under the NHL's salary cap. The 6-foot-4, 258-pound Kubina is in the final year of a two-year $7.7 million contract that has a cap hit of $3.85 million this season, according to Capgeek.com.

Flyers Notes Chris Pronger is getting close to returning to the Flyers' lineup. For the first time since he injured his right eye Oct. 24, Pronger took part in drills during Friday's optional practice in Voorhees. Wearing a visor, he was on the ice with six other players. The Flyers have gone 2-2-1 in the five full games Pronger has missed since getting hit with an inadvertent stick by Toronto's Mikhail Grabovsky. General manager Paul Holmgren said Pronger will miss Saturday night's game against visiting Columbus, but he didn't rule out the possibility of his star defenseman playing Wednesday against Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Fla. Pronger will take part in Saturday's morning skate.

A 40-year-old winger coming off an injury in his previous game is not supposed to make a quick recovery. Then again, the Flyers' Jaromir Jagr is not your typical 40-year-old. On Wednesday, general manager Paul Holmgren said he didn't expect Jagr to play Thursday because of a hip injury suffered against Detroit Tuesday. But Jagr, a future Hall of Famer, was in the lineup against visiting Florida on Thursday. Because the Flyers didn't want him to overdo it, he began the night on the fourth line with Eric Wellwood and Jody Shelley.

For the Flyers, there is a sliver of good news if the NHL lockout lasts for a significant amount of time: Several of their promising young players will get a chance to stay sharp by playing for their American Hockey League affiliate. Players who are exempt from waivers can be sent to the AHL, and Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn, Erik Gustafsson, Zac Rinaldo, and Eric Wellwood were among the Flyers assigned to the Adirondack Phantoms on Saturday night. In addition, defenseman Danny Syvret and forward Matt Ford cleared waivers Friday and will attend the Phantoms' camp - which starts Sept.

It was an unofficial practice because the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement still has to be signed, but the Flyers who skated in Voorhees on Monday seemed to have some extra zip during the one-hour session. It had everything to do with the tentative agreement that was forged between the league and the players' union on Sunday, ending the 113-day lockout. "It's been a long four months," said defensemen Kimmo Timonen, one of five Flyers who practiced Monday. "You kind of have to try to be in shape just in case this happens.

Rookie Scott Laughton is sticking with the Flyers. As expected, the Flyers kept Laughton - the team's first-round pick last June - on their Opening Day 23-man, thanks to extra roster space provided by Danny Briere's wrist injury. According to reports, Laughton will be one of 10 junior players to make the Opening Day cut. Seven other underage players were sent back to their junior teams earlier in the week. "With Danny's situation being as it is, it just gives us a few days to give him a bit longer look," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said.

MARCH YOUR Penguins back home, Pittsburgh, and from your series loss to Philadelphia, take this lesson: Flightless birds shouldn't puck with the Flyers. From Claude Giroux's first goal just 32 seconds into the game to Brayden Schenn's final tally just seconds from the end, the orange and black clicked like clockwork on Sunday, even if the old ultraviolence seen earlier in the series was lacking. Flyers fans at the Wells Fargo Center worked like a well-oiled machine, too - pulsing in unison, chanting as one and blowing their lids when the team finally secured the opening round of the Eastern Conference in Game 6. "I am awesome!"

Driving from his home in Maine to South Jersey earlier this week, Terry Murray noted a strange coincidence involving the NHL's latest labor dispute. "Three times there's been a lockout - and all three times I've been with the Flyers when it happened," said Murray, who is getting ready to start his first year as head coach of Philadelphia's top minor-league affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. This lockout will benefit Murray and all the AHL teams, because they will have an influx of NHL talent.
