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.

Handsome, rich, and a two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Los Angeles Kings, Mike Richards was on top of the world. But Richards, once the face of the Flyers, finds himself out of professional hockey and trying to stay out of jail after allegedly carrying painkilling prescription drugs across the United States/Canadian border in June. He awaits a Dec. 8 hearing in Emerson, Manitoba, about 70 miles from Winnipeg. Richards, 30, has battled concussions throughout his career, and there may be a connection between his injuries and the drugs he is accused of possessing.

LOS ANGELES - Flyers chairman Ed Snider welcomed a large group of visitors to his mansion in Montecito, Calif., on Thursday afternoon. Namely, his entire hockey team, coaches, and assorted club personnel. The entourage arrived by bus after practicing at a Santa Barbara rink that has a connection to Snider, who has been battling cancer for about two years. Snider, 82, shook hands, and hugged his visitors. "It was awesome," defenseman Luke Schenn said of the two-hour visit.

The most alluring reason to watch the Flyers this season, the player who represents the best-case glimpse at their future, took the ice with his teammates at the Skate Zone for practice Tuesday. Seeing rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere skate during a brief and light workout was an indication that maybe his mysterious "lower-body injury" had healed enough for him to play Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins. As it turned out, it had not. General manager Ron Hextall announced after practice that Gostisbehere - who has seven goals, including three in overtime, and 16 points in 23 games - would be out of the lineup against the Bruins.

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.

I DO believe in Ghost. I do believe in Ghost. I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do believe in Ghost. As we enjoy the holidays and brace ourselves for yet another winter of uncertainty - thanks for nothing, Eagles - it would seem a grand idea to grab the end of our collective tails, squeeze them hard and channel those fearful but hopeful words uttered by the Cowardly Lion in "The Wizard of Oz.

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.

NASHVILLE - The new NHL All-Star Game format - a three-on-three mini-tournament - will liven up what has usually been 60 minutes of high-scoring boredom. That's the opinion shared by many of this year's participants, including Flyers captain Claude Giroux. "I think it's going to be more entertaining," Giroux said Friday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. "There's more ice with the three-on-three, and fans want to see players play a little harder, try a little harder. The guys obviously don't want to get hurt [because]

WASHINGTON -- With five days off between games, most of the Flyers will get some rest during the all-star break and can look ahead to their final 35 games of the season. They are five points out of a playoff spot at the break and need to climb over five teams to get the final wild-card berth. The Flyers, who will send center Claude Giroux to Sunday's all-star tournament in Nashville, have games in hand on all five teams. Thanks to a stunning 4-3 overtime win over mighty Washington on Wednesday, they are feeling good about themselves.

ARLINGTON, Va. - He was smiling. He was joking. On the ice, in the dressing room, with teammates, and, yes, even with media - even with me. Mike Richards is happy to be back in hockey, so happy that he could greet an old critic with a welcoming smile and a long conversation about the status of his game, even as he still faces an oh-so-uncertain path to his future. "My legs are good," he said after a brief pregame skate at the Washington Capitals' practice facility before Wednesday night's game against the Flyers.

The Flyers have a problem, and here's the twisted irony of it: If their general manager, Ron Hextall, were more impetuous and less focused on the team's long-term improvement - if the Flyers, that is, were to act more like the Flyers used to act - they might actually solve it. The problem is simple: The Flyers don't score goals. Ahead of their game Wednesday night in Washington against Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals, the Flyers ranked 29th out of the NHL's 30 teams this season in goals per game, at 2.24 - this, after ranking 22nd (2.62)

WASHINGTON - The Flyers go into the all-star break feeling good about themselves. Jake Voracek scored 38 seconds into overtime Wednesday - after goalie Braden Holtby lost his stick when bumped by a teammate - as the Flyers stunned powerful Washington, 4-3, at the Verizon Center. Voracek's second goal of the game ended the Flyers' three-game losing streak and handed the Capitals their first home loss since Nov. 19. They had won 12 in a row at home. "I'm glad we closed it out tonight," said Voracek, whose team had lost two of its previous three games in the last two minutes.

WASHINGTON - The Flyers finally admitted Wednesday that goalie Steve Mason was injured, and then he went out and practiced, making saves during the morning skate at the Verizon Center. The previous day, coach Dave Hakstol vehemently denied that Mason was injured. A "healthy" Mason did not practice Monday or Tuesday.

If the Flyers are going to end a three-game losing streak and go into the all-star break in a positive frame of mind, all they have to do is beat the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night in D.C. The same Capitals that have the NHL's best record (35-8-3) and lead the league in most offensive and defensive categories. Oh, and both Flyers goalies appear to be injured or ill, despite denials from the organization. Michal Neuvirth, who is expected to get Wednesday's start, was limping badly and received medical attention after Monday's 3-2 loss to Boston.

Former Flyers captain Mike Richards downplayed facing his ex-team Wednesday at the Verizon Center. It will be the first time Richards has played against the Flyers since he signed a free-agent contract with Washington earlier this month. Richards spent six seasons with the Flyers before being dealt to Los Angeles in 2011. "It was a long time ago," Richards, Washington's fourth-line center, told reporters after the Capitals' practice Tuesday in Arlington, Va. "Four, five years ago now. There might be one player left on the team that I played with, so it really doesn't make much of a difference to me anymore.

For Jordan Weal, the wait finally ended. The rookie forward, acquired from Los Angeles on Jan. 6, made his Flyers debut against visiting Boston on Monday. Sam Gagner, who played one game after being recalled from Lehigh Valley, was a healthy scratch. Weal was part of the deal that sent Vinny Lecavalier (four goals in nine games with the Kings) and Luke Schenn (minus-1 in nine games) to Los Angeles. "Jordan has worked for that opportunity," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game.

The Flyers whiffed on a chance Monday night to sweep the season series from Boston for the first time in franchise history. Brett Connolly tipped in Zdeno Chara's shot with 1 minute, 54 seconds left, lifting Boston to a 3-2 win over the Flyers at the stunned Wells Fargo Center. It was the Flyers' third straight loss, all in regulation, and it pushed them further behind in the wild-card race. The losing streak started when they allowed the winning goal with 7.5 seconds left against Toronto.
