Ed Snider, who brought hockey to Philadelphia in 1967 as founder of the Flyers, is battling an unspecified cancer and completed chemotherapy this week, according to several sources. "He's going to work every day and it's treatable," a source in the organization said. The condition is "non-life-threatening" and Snider is "doing well," said Ike Richman, a spokesman for Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers' parent company. "He is happy and healthy. " Snider's involvement with the team and the company was not affected by his condition or treatment, Richman said.

Shutouts have been rare for the Flyers in the playoffs, but not against the Sabres this year. Consider: The 1-0 shutout Wednesday was the first time in franchise history that the Flyers have been shut out, 1-0, twice in the same series. The two shutouts are just the third and fourth 1-0 shutout losses in the playoffs in franchise history. The Flyers had not been shut out twice in a series since the 2002 Eastern Conference quarterfinals, when they were shut out in Games 2, 3 and 4 by Ottawa.

Game 4 can be summarized in three words: Marc-Andre Fleury. This was a classic case of a hot goalie stealing his team a game. The Pens goalkeeper was phenomenal, making 45 saves in Pittsburgh's 3-1 win. After a shaky performance in Game Three, Fleury was clearly the difference in sending the Penguins home with a three-games-to-one series lead. The Flyers came out hard in the first ten minutes of the game and had three power plays and plenty of quality scoring chances, in the first period, but could not crack the former No. 1 overall pick.

Nashville, the NHL's hottest team with 10 wins in its last 11 games, will try to continue the Flyers' home struggles on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Once upon a time, opponents feared facing the Flyers in their South Philly rink, and it wasn't uncommon for foes to mysteriously come down with what was known as the "Philadelphia flu" because they knew a physical, punishing game was ahead of them. Not anymore. The Flyers have won just half of their 22 home games (11-7-4)

It was one timeout that Peter Laviolette, the master of such things, actually regretted. Never mind that Laviolette's team scored just 55 seconds after he whistled them together, providing a last-minute reminder for the pending five-on-three advantage the Flyers were about to enjoy. Game 3 against Pittsburgh was tied at that point Sunday afternoon. Danny Briere scored to make it 2-1. Less than four minutes later, Briere piled on to make it 3-1. The Flyers never looked back.

The Flyers agreed to terms with defenseman Robert Hagg, their second-round pick last June, to an entry-level contract Friday, and there are indications they are in the hunt for free-agent defenseman Christian Folin of UMass-Lowell. Hagg, 19, who was the youngest regular defenseman in the Sweden Hockey League, will report to the Phantoms on Tuesday, and his three-year entry-level deal will start next season. If Kimmo Timonen retires, Hagg could be in the discussion for a spot with the Flyers next season - though he likely will need a full year of AHL seasoning.

WASHINGTON - The Flyers got closer to the 23-player limit by sending left winger Michael Raffl and defenseman Oliver Lauridsen to the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms on Friday. The moves left the team with 25 players in training camp. Raffl's demotion was a bit surprising because the Austrian had impressed the Flyers' brass during the preseason. The 24-year-old forward was trying to make a gargantuan leap from a lower-level Sweden league to the NHL. In four preseason games, Raffl was scoreless but was one of the Flyers' most active forwards.

Four players who are viewed as the future of the Flyers' defense - Shayne Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg, Sam Morin, and Travis Sanheim - will be among the prospects on display Friday when the club opens rookie camp at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The five-day camp will end with a rookie game Tuesday at 3 p.m. against the Washington Capitals in Voorhees. All of the promising defensemen figure to start the season with the AHL Lehigh Valley Phantoms or in juniors, but general manager Ron Hextall said he has no preconceived notions.

The NHL made 10 rule changes Thursday, but Flyers captain Claude Giroux daydreamed about a couple of others he wished the league had implemented. "Smaller equipment for goalies and bigger nets," he cracked after working out at the Skate Zone Friday with the other Flyers veterans. Increasing the trapezoid two feet on each side was one of the rule changes; it will give goalies like Steve Mason more room to make plays and trigger the attack. "I think it's probably going to help goalies who are good with the stick," defenseman Nick Grossmann said.

Center Scott Laughton, the Flyers' No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft, dominated the Ontario Hockey League last season. He even had a brief-but-successful stint with the AHL Phantoms the previous year. But at 20, is he ready to make the quantum leap to the NHL? That's one of the most intriguing questions that will be answered at the Flyers' training camps. When rookies report to camp Friday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, Laughton will be regarded as the player with the best chance of sticking with the big-league team.

Even though the Flyers' veteran camp doesn't start until Sept. 19, several of the players have already started skating and working out at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "I got here yesterday and thought I'd be one of the first ones here," defenseman Andrew MacDonald said after skating Tuesday, "and it turns out I was one of the last ones. The boys are eager to get going. " The Flyers' rookie camp starts Friday in Voorhees, and Scott Laughton is among the numerous prospects who have also been skating at the team's practice facility in Voorhees.

Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who will miss at least part of the season as he recovers from blood clots, apparently is making progress.

"We got the good news this week - that he is able to play," said Scott Tharp, president of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation.

Flyers fourth-line winger Zac Rinaldo, caught off guard by the offer, signed a two-year contract extension Tuesday. "I'm surprised we'd even started to talk about it so early, but I'm thrilled," said Rinaldo, who added: "This definitely gives me a lot of confidence. " Rinaldo, 24, had two goals, two assists and 153 penalty minutes in 67 games last season, his third with the Flyers. He will earn $750,000 this season, and reportedly will be paid a total of $1.7 million over the next two years.
