STONE HARBOR, N.J. - Defenseman Sam Morin knew the answer right away. Who was the first American to score 50 goals as a Flyer? The coaching staff asked and Morin answered, giddily shouting: "John LeClair. " The Flyers prospects participated in the annual Trial on the Isle during development camp Monday. And in the opening part of the day they had to answer a trivia question before beginning a racecourse on the beach in their smaller teams of four. Morin got his team started with the LeClair answer.

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.

The start of summer has not been good to the Flyers. Their captain, Claude Giroux, spent a night in jail last week after a bizarre incident in an Ottawa bar. Their new general manager, Ron Hextall, was hamstrung by the team's salary-cap situation and could not join the free-agent frenzy. And while the Flyers were signing spare parts - some for depth, some for their AHL affiliate - most of their Metropolitan Division opponents made improvements. So where will the Flyers stand when the season starts?

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.

THE SOFT sell when Ron Hextall was promoted to the post of Flyers general manager in early May was that it was a natural evolution. Paul Holmgren repeated that he would not have lured Hextall away from Los Angeles the previous summer if he didn't anticipate this day; Hextall humbly contended that he would lean on Homer's counsel, and work alongside him. And while yesterday's casual interview in his Skate Zone offices contained all those subtexts (and...

In a one-on-one drill on the final day of Flyers development camp Tuesday, 2014 first-round pick Travis Sanheim was matched up against 2014 second-round pick Nicolas Aube-Kubel. Aube-Kubel, a center, reversed direction quickly at the blue line, preparing to make his move toward the net. Sanheim, a defenseman, followed, but instead of clamping down on Aube-Kubel, he fell on his back attempting the about-face. He lifted himself off the ice quickly, scampering to recover. There were other instances during camp when Sanheim, 18, looked anything but foolish, holding his own against top prospect Scott Laughton.

SCOTT LAUGHTON was stuck on the boards, scrambling and looking for a way out. The 2012 first-round draft pick was being defended in a one-on-one situation by 2013 first-rounder Sam Morin. The 6-7 bruiser had already smashed Radel Fazleev against the glass and checked Nick Cousins to the ice but he couldn't trap Laughton for the boom shot. Laughton twisted his skates and did a half-spin that left Morin sliding on the ice. He whipped a puck to the open man who slapped it for a goal past Merrick Madsen.

Flyers defensive prospect Shayne Gostisbehere has seen more hockey success in Philadelphia than any other player at Flyers development camp. Gostisbehere reached the pinnacle of college hockey on April 12 at the Wells Fargo Center, earning most outstanding player honors at the Frozen Four after leading Union College to a national championship. Gostisbehere called it the best month of his life. Now the 21-year-old is trying to get back to Philadelphia as a Flyer. The team's third-round pick in 2012, Gostisbehere decided to forgo his senior season of eligibility at Union in the days following the national title.

THE FLYERS' top four defensive prospects - Sam Morin, Travis Sanheim, Shayne Gostisbehere and Robert Hagg - at a development camp Friday in Voorhees, were noticeably excited when asked about their roles on future Flyers teams. But each was cautious about thinking too far ahead. Ron Hextall told Flyers prospects that the ongoing development camp was not an evaluation process, and the GM said he was not ready to "anoint" any of these kids with an NHL roster spot in his first summer in Philadelphia's front office.

The Flyers have drafted one goalie since 2005 who has appeared in a regular-season game for the team. Jeremy Duchesne, a Flyers third-round draft pick in 2005, played 17 minutes in a 6-4 loss to the Islanders on April 1, 2010, making three saves on four shots. Since then, nothing. In the last 20 years, Brian Boucher, Roman Cechmanek, and Antero Niittymaki are the only Flyers draftees to receive significant time. Anthony Stolarz, the Flyers' 2012 second-round pick, is trying to end the team's futility at developing players at the position.
