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.

RUMORS HAD been swirling during recent months, and the Flyers finally confirmed that a trade was happening. After spending the last 16 years on the team's Comcast SportsNet television broadcast crew - with much of that time spent wedged between the players' benches - Steve Coates will be heading back to the radio booth. The Flyers announced in a press release yesterday that "Coatesy" would be trading places with radio color commentator and longtime Flyers defenseman Chris Therien.

LONDON, Ontario - One year ago, Anthony Stolarz made his NHL exhibition debut with the Flyers at Budweiser Gardens, the same arena he's called home for the last two seasons with the OHL's Knights. He split the game with Steve Mason, stopping 14 of 15 shots. Except after the game, as the rest of the Flyers were packing their bags for a 2-hour bus ride across Ontario, goaltending coach Jeff Reese was waiting for Stolarz at his locker. Reese congratulated Stolarz, the Flyers' second-round pick in 2012, then quietly broke the news that he would not be accompanying the team on the rest of the trip.

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, is a big, small town. The type of town where everyone knows everyone - even more so among the small fraternity of hockey players from the prairie lucky enough to make it to the NHL. Journeyman forward Blair Jones is 3 years older than Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn, a bit older still than Brayden Schenn. Their paths never would have crossed in minor hockey circuits or junior hockey. But when Jones signed with the Flyers after the free-agency period opened on July 1, his phone lit up with text messages from the Saskatoon connection.

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.

Granted, it was against weak competition, but the Flyers have put together back-to-back strong defensive efforts for one of the few times this season. They scored 4-1 and 5-1 wins over New Jersey and Carolina, respectively, and allowed an average of just 22 shots per game. In those two wins, Luke Schenn - who has looked revived after being a healthy scratch for two games - had a total of 10 blocked shots, Braydon Coburn was a combined plus-5, and Nick Schultz was a combined plus-6.

IT WAS DURING the Flyers' three-game California trip 2 weeks ago, Sean Couturier said, when the team's checking line began to uncover some chemistry. The trio started to better find each other on the ice, force more turnovers on the forecheck and create more scoring opportunities. The line's improved play, the 22-year-old center reasoned, is the most prominent reason for his personal offensive surge of late, three goals and four assists over the last seven games. On a six-game point streak, a mark that ties his career high, he entered this week in the midst of his best scoring stretch of the season.

Sean Couturier tied a personal milestone on Saturday, and Scott Laughton created one. Together, these two young Flyers centers and former first-round draft choices have given the team a spark. Couturier scored just 53 seconds into the game, and Laughton, making his 18th NHL appearance, scored his first goal as the Flyers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-1, in a matinee at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have earned points in five consecutive games and are 2-0 in a four-game homestand that continues Tuesday against Tampa Bay. Couturier tied a career high by scoring a point in his sixth straight game.

THE FLYERS have yet to win a game this season in which neither Claude Giroux nor Jake Voracek tallied at least a point. But throughout the team's improved play over its last five games, it has started to get more secondary scoring. "It's huge. We can't rely on just one line all year," said Sean Couturier, who carries a five-game point streak into today's 1 p.m. home game against the last-place Hurricanes. "They're one of the best [lines] in the league, but they need some help some nights.

So who are the 2014-15 Flyers, anyway? Come to think of it, that's one of their many problems: They don't have an identity. They aren't an offensively explosive team like Tampa Bay or Toronto. They don't play suffocating, in-your-face defense like Los Angeles or Chicago. They aren't speedy like the Rangers or Montreal, and they don't play a physical, hard-on-the-puck game like Boston or Columbus. What they are is nondescript. When last season started and Peter Laviolette was still the coach, the Flyers were known as a hell-bent, attacking team - which, besides a five-year, $22.5 million contract, was one of the reasons Vinny Lecavalier came here.

With lowly Carolina visiting the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon, the Flyers have a juicy opportunity to increase their points streak to five games and pick up ground in the Metropolitan Division. No NHL team has fewer points than the Hurricanes (19), who have lost four straight and slipped to 8-17-3. The Flyers (10-13-5) are coming off one of their better all-around performances of the season, a 4-1 win over New Jersey on Thursday that started a four-game homestand.

The spread of mumps around the NHL has concerned Flyers general manager Ron Hextall so much that some of his players have recently had vaccines. "We've addressed some things," Hextall said after the Flyers' win over New Jersey on Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. "We've got it covered as much as we can. Clean buildings and wash your hands and vaccines and everything else you can do. We've done everything we can do to protect our players and our staff. " Two Devils - center Travis Zajac and defenseman Adam Larsson - missed Thursday's game with the mumps.

In the Flyers' 28th game, there was a Matt Read sighting at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. Read had his first goal in 11 games - and his first multi-point performance of the season - as he sparked the Flyers to a 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils. "I wouldn't say I was losing confidence, but getting frustrated a little bit," said Read, who had just one goal in his previous 20 games. ". . . Things just bounced my way tonight. " The Flyers, opening a four-game homestand, have a modest four-game points streak, during which they are 2-0-2.

Defenseman Luke Schenn returned to the Flyers lineup Thursday against New Jersey, replacing Michael Del Zotto after being a healthy scratch the previous two games. "You keep a good attitude, and whether you get taken out or not, you don't let things get to you and take it personally," Schenn said before the game. "At the end of your career, there's always going to be bumps in the road and ups and downs. You always continue to fight through it, and this year is no different. . . . I think it probably makes you stronger at the end. " Schenn, who started the night with a team-worst minus-12 rating this year, was paired with Andrew MacDonald for just the fourth time this season.

ABOUT A THIRD of the way through their season, the Flyers' woeful record in road games in rivaled by only a select few of the NHL's other 29 teams. Only three wins in 15 games away from the Wells Fargo Center plays a big part in their sixth-place Metropolitan Division standing. And so these next four games, each against Eastern Conference teams and, more important, each at home in South Philly, are crucial for the Flyers (9-13-5). A chunk of points over the next 8 days is much-needed, especially considering another long road trip looms, this one of the seasonlong, eight-game variety.
