Jeff Carter doesn't possess the flair of Evgeni Malkin and he doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve quite like Sidney Crosby, the two high-profile centers for Pittsburgh. He is loath to talk about himself, and gives the impression he would rather blend into the woodwork than become the center of attention. If so, the 24-year-old Flyers center is hurting his own cause, because guys who score 46 goals are difficult to ignore. The Penguins certainly won't, unless they have figured out some other way to get past the Flyers in the first-round playoff series that begins tonight in Pittsburgh.

Losing to Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference finals, the Flyers realized, in the words of coach John Stevens, that they have to "close the gap" between themselves and others. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said yesterday that he wants to see what the Penguins do in the Stanley Cup Finals and in their bid to re-sign 12 unrestricted free agents this summer. Pittsburgh will look very different next fall. The gap between the Penguins and Flyers could shrink between July 1, when free agency begins, and early October, when the season starts.

Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin picked up his Art Ross Trophy on Tuesday for being the NHL's MVP last season. Fresh off a working vacation back in his native Russia during the four-month lockout, Malkin is eager to pick up a different piece of hardware this spring.

Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Richard Park also had goals for the Penguins, who are off to their best start in 17 seasons despite playing without captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Crosby remains sidelined while he recovers from concussion-like symptoms, but Pittsburgh hasn't needed him during the season's first week, improving to 3-0-1.

Evgeni Malkin can't really explain what's going on with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He'd rather just enjoy the ride. Malkin pounded home a rebound 1 minute, 31 seconds into overtime to lift the streaking Penguins to their sixth straight win, a 4-3 triumph over the visiting Washington Capitals on Sunday. "I have great confidence now, you know?" Malkin said. "You win six games, I think everyone has great confidence now. "I just am enjoying the game, you know? And having fun. " Considering the way things have been going for Pittsburgh, it's kind of hard not to. Malkin has now scored in six straight games, matching the longest streak in the league this year.

Two weeks after Pittsburgh's season seemed on the brink of unraveling with a six-game slide, the Penguins have turned things around. Pittsburgh enters the all-star break riding a seven-game winning streak, the franchise's longest since ripping off 12 straight in November-December 2010. Yet that run came with the team nearly at full strength, before Sidney Crosby's odyssey to recover from concussion symptoms began, before Evgeni Malkin's season ended abruptly with knee issues. This run has come with Crosby out indefinitely - again.

PITTSBURGH - You could excuse the Flyers if they consider the Consol Energy Center their favorite NHL arena. They own the building. R.J. Umberger, a 32-year-year-old winger who grew up in suburban Pittsburgh, scored his first goal in his second stint with the Flyers, sparking a 5-3 win over the Penguins on Wednesday night. Since the arena opened in 2010-11, the Flyers are an amazing 10-1-1 in regular-season games here. Umberger, who also contributed an assist and a first-period fight, snapped a 2-2 tie with 13 minutes left as he converted a pass from Claude Giroux (two assists)

Goalie Steve Mason has been with the Flyers less than a year, but he has a pretty good feel for the bitterness between his club and the Sidney Crosby-led Penguins. The teams will meet in a home-and-home series this weekend, starting with the matchup at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. "I got a chance to play them earlier in the season," Mason said of a 4-1 loss that included an empty-net Penguins goal. "You can just see the way the fans interact during the game. There's not a lot of love for the team over there, so you get a grasp for it. "But I don't think you should approach a game any differently just because it's a certain opponent.

Back in 2012, in a moment of postgame euphoria, then-Flyers coach Peter Laviolette called Claude Giroux the "best player in the world" after the center helped eliminate heavily favored Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Since then, Laviolette has taken lots of criticism for that statement, especially from those who believe the Penguins' Sidney Crosby is head and shoulders the class of the NHL. Fast-forward to this season. Crosby - whose Penguins visit the Flyers in a Saturday matinee - leads the NHL with 88 points, while Giroux entered Thursday tied for 10th with 65 points.

OUT OF ALL the decisions Craig Berube will be forced to make on the fly this weekend in back-to-back games against the Penguins, perhaps his toughest choice will be one of the few that he actually can plan ahead: his starting goaltenders. Ray Emery, who hasn't dressed since pulling himself from the loss to San Jose on Feb. 27, skated for more than 90 minutes yesterday in practice - adding an interesting wrinkle to Berube's decision. Emery saw most of the work in practice while spare Cal Heeter, the Phantoms goaltender who has served as Steve Mason's backup for the past 2 weeks, largely stood to the side.

While the Flyers were getting goalie Ray Emery for a bargain-basement price - a one-year deal for $1.65 million - they opened up the vault Friday and gave star center Claude Giroux an eight-year extension that totals $66.2 million. "It's a great honor to be able to have that kind of contract," said Giroux, the Flyers' 25-year-old captain, in a conference call with reporters. "It just shows the trust they have in me, and I'm going to do my best to not let them down. A little bit of pressure like that never hurts.

Though negotiations haven't started yet between the Flyers and star center Claude Giroux, look for them to begin in the coming weeks, a source close to the situation said. Giroux, 25, will make $5 million next season, but his cap hit is $3.75 million because most of the money was backloaded in a three-year, $11.25 million contract. He can become a restricted free agent after the 2013-14 season, meaning the Flyers can match another team's offer and keep him in the fold. But they want to lock him up with a long-term deal.

THE CHICAGO Blackhawks know all about Andrew Shaw's reputation around the league. They also know the pesky little forward is so much more than just another irritant for opposing players. The diminutive Shaw sparred with Zdeno Chara, dished out nine hits and was in the right place when his team needed him the most Wednesday night in a thrilling start to the Stanley Cup finals. Shaw popped back up after he was knocked down and skated to the front of the goal to get a deflection on Dave Bolland's tip for the winning score in the Blackhawks' 4-3, triple-overtime victory over the Boston Bruins in the fifth-longest game in the history of the NHL's biggest series.

A future Hall of Famer who established his credentials in the open ice, Jaromir Jagr was mucking it up along the boards for a loose puck. The 41-year-old former Pittsburgh great and onetime Flyer outdueled Evgeni Malkin for the puck and pushed it ahead to Brad Marchand, who took it over the blue line and flipped it to Patrice Bergeron for the winning goal. "Everyone is doing everything in order to get the success and to get the wins, and it doesn't matter what it is and who it is," Bergeron said early Thursday after his goal at 15 minutes, 19 seconds of the second overtime period gave the Bruins a 2-1 victory over the Penguins in Boston and a three-games-to-none lead in the Eastern Conference finals.
