INSIDE JAROMIR Jagr's locker stall, in the bowels of the Wells Fargo Center and any arena where the Flyers play, a small memento is wrapped in blue felt. It is a trifold, no more than 6 inches in length. It sits next to Jagr's hockey tape, stick wax, and various weights and braces and training contraptions. It does not stand out, except for the shine reflecting off the gilded hand-painted faces of the Eastern Orthodox Church's Holy Trinity, and the fact that religious icons in hockey dressing rooms are rarer than Stanley Cup-clinching goals.

STEVE MASON tomahawked his stick over the bench on his way off the ice, splintering it into pieces in pure frustration. Florida's Dave Bolland slipped a puck through his five-hole seconds earlier to hand the Flyers their 10th consecutive shootout loss. Even stopping five out of seven Panthers shooters in the breakaway competition wasn't good enough, given his teammates' brain scramble at the other end of the ice. The lost extracurricular point was the most tangible example of one of many games-within-the-game last night, with Mason's anger seeping through in his words for more than 5 minutes.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Flyers general manager Ron Hextall made it clear Thursday that he is not going to trade one of his younger players for a chance to slip into the playoffs this season. "If the right deal comes along for now and for the future, we'll make it. If it doesn't, obviously we won't," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters. "We'll do everything we can to get in the playoffs, short of selling off younger assets. But we have our vision for the future. We're not going to do anything short-term that's going to hurt us long-term.

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.

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.

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.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Long after most of his teammates filed out to the team bus, Mark Streit sat in a stall inside the Flyers' cramped locker room at PNC Arena after his shower. He conversed quietly with Braydon Coburn. Streit paused to knot his tie and tug on his suit jacket, but mostly shook his head in disgust. He was not alone. Two days after whittling the Bruins' edge on the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot down to two points, the bipolar Flyers fell, 4-1, to the 27th-place Hurricanes last night.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Braydon Coburn has heard the whispers for nearly 2 calendar years, but they're growing louder and louder now with the Flyers' glut of defensemen. The clock is ticking. Ron Hextall's first trade deadline as an NHL general manager is only 5 days away - 3 p.m. Monday - and some of his closest advisers have joined him on the road. Former general manager and now senior vice president Bob Clarke is traveling with the Flyers for the first time in seemingly years.

RALEIGH, N.C. - If the Flyers miss the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, their inability to beat NHL lightweights will be a major reason. Maybe the reason. Carolina, the last-place team in the Metropolitan Division, jolted the Flyers, 4-1, at PNC Arena on Tuesday. With a sparse crowd watching because many did not want to travel on the snowy roads, the Flyers continued to struggle against also-rans. They have just five wins in their last 13 games against teams not in a playoff position.

RALEIGH,  N.C. - Goalie Steve Mason took another step Tuesday toward returning to the lineup. For the first time since he had arthroscopic knee surgery on Feb. 10, Mason practiced with the Flyers during their morning skate Tuesday at PNC Arena. Afterward, Mason didn't close the door on returning Thursday in Toronto, but said Saturday against the visiting New York Rangers was a "more realistic" goal. "That was good. I pushed myself as hard as I could today," Mason said after practicing for more than an hour.

RALEIGH, N.C. - April Fools' Day isn't for another month or so, right? Pick up a paper today and flip to the sports section in the Miami Herald or Boston Globe and you're likely to be baffled. In South Florida, the Panthers are talking about the Stanley Cup playoffs. Huh? They've made it just once since 2000. In Beantown, the Bruins are in the middle of a meltdown. There is all sorts of chatter about whether general manager Peter Chiarelli should be fired, or whether coach Claude Julien will survive the summer if the Bruins don't make the playoffs.

RALEIGH, N.C. - As the Flyers continue their spirited playoff run Tuesday in Carolina, only their third- and fourth-string goalies will be available for the matchup with the Hurricanes. Ray Emery suffered an undisclosed lower-body injury Monday at practice in Voorhees, forcing the Flyers to recall Anthony Stolarz from the AHL's Phantoms. That means Rob Zepp, 33, who is in his first NHL season, will make his third consecutive start Tuesday, and Stolarz will be his backup. General manager Ron Hextall, whose team is four points out of a playoff spot, said that Emery had been dealing with a nagging injury before Monday, and that he probably would be sidelined a "few days.

RALEIGH, N.C. - To their credit, the left-for-dead Flyers have climbed back into the Eastern Conference playoff hunt by straightening out their penalty-killing problems and discovering a way to beat some of the NHL's elite teams. But if they really want to show they are worthy contenders - as their recent 8-1-4 run suggests - they need to improve their even-strength play and figure out how to defeat some of the league's bottom-feeders, such as their next two opponents, Carolina and Toronto.

Goalie Steve Mason and defenseman Kimmo Timonen will be with the Flyers for their road trip, but that doesn't necessarily mean they will be in the lineup for those two games. Last week, Mason, who is making a comeback from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, did not rule out playing in Carolina on Tuesday or in Toronto on Thursday. "Tuesday, I would say no, and Thursday is not likely," general manager Ron Hextall said before the Flyers outlasted Washington, 3-2, Sunday afternoon.

IT . . . Is . . . Alive . . . The Skating Dead, the label often attached to this town's hockey team less than a month ago, are not only moving forward, they are poised to climb over a numbed body or even two in the next couple of weeks. Their playoff chances reduced to state lottery-winning percentages just a month ago, the Flyers added four more points to their mounting total over the weekend with victories over two playoff-bound teams, including the NHL's current top team, the Nashville Predators.
