BRAYDON COBURN first got a glimpse of current teammate Shayne Gostisbehere in 2012, before the Flyers even drafted "Ghost," when he was the defensive partner of Coburn's younger brother, Greg, at Union College. Coburn, the longest-tenured Flyer, would take a ride to see Union whenever time permitted in his busy NHL schedule, especially if the Flying Dutchmen dipped through Princeton. Last night, Coburn had a front-row ticket to watch the future of the Flyers' blue line - alternating shifts between the pairing of Gostisbehere and Samuel Morin.

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.

CHICAGO - Claude Giroux picked up where he left off last season. His linemate, Jake Voracek, has at least one point in all five games this season, the only Flyer to do so. The last Flyer with points in at least five straight games to start a season was Chris Pronger, back in 2011. Only one player in the NHL - the Rangers' Rick Nash (six) - has more goals than Wayne Simmonds (five). Giroux, Voracek and Simmonds each have seven points on the young season and all three rank in the top 20 in league scoring, despite the fact that Simmonds was held off the scoresheet Saturday night in Dallas.

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.

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.

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.

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)

THE MYSTERY surrounding Claude Giroux took another strange turn yesterday when he did not report for practice. After general manager Ron Hextall declared Giroux to be "fine" on Monday night, Giroux will likely miss at least the next two games with what the team is calling a "lower-body" injury. Tonight will be Giroux's first game missed because of injury since Dec. 19, 2011, breaking a streak of 197 consecutive games healthy. To help pick up the slack, the Flyers recalled first-round pick Scott Laughton last night.

The Flyers have lost eight straight regular-season games at Madison Square Garden, and if they hope to end that streak Wednesday night they'll have to do it without star center Claude Giroux. Giroux, who was tied for sixth in the NHL with 21 points entering Tuesday, probably will be sidelined for two games with an unspecified lower-body injury, general manager Ron Hextall announced. He said the Flyers captain suffered the injury Monday at practice. "I can't give a definitive time line, but I don't expect it to be long," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters late Tuesday afternoon.

The Flyers got some positive news on the injury front Monday: Andrew MacDonald and Luke Schenn, defensemen who will help their sagging penalty-killing unit, were upgraded to "day to day," and there is a possibility they will play Wednesday against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Both practiced Monday in Voorhees. If they don't play Wednesday, they could return Thursday against visiting Minnesota. "They need practice," coach Craig Berube said. Schenn, who injured his left shoulder when hit by Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon on Nov. 8, said "every day is getting a lot better.

Eric Lindros and John LeClair, two-thirds of the Flyers' famed Legion of Doom line, will enter the team's Hall of Fame before Thursday's game against Minnesota at the Wells Fargo Center. "Eric has been such a big part of my career, and to have him standing right there next to me will be quite immense," LeClair, who lives in Haverford, said in a conference call with Lindros and reporters Monday. "Philadelphia is where I played my best hockey," said Lindros, whose long feud with the organization ended a few years ago. "The fans in Philadelphia are extremely passionate.

MONTREAL - The Flyers' inability to defend power plays recently has masked the fact that prolific-scoring winger Jake Voracek has become one of the NHL's feel-good stories this season. There have been many players struggling on the penalty kill, including defenseman Braydon Coburn, who has not played well since returning from a foot injury Nov. 8. But Coburn is not alone. "It comes down to details, and every guy has to do his part - and we're not doing it now," defenseman Nick Grossmann said after the Flyers dropped a 6-3 decision Saturday in Montreal.

EVER THE PEST, Scott Hartnell glided up the red line during warmups and playfully stole the puck from former teammate Claude Giroux. He also lofted a shot toward Steve Mason - which in the old days might have sparked an Ed Hospodar-style pregame donnybrook. Anything goes, Hartnell figured, if his antics could take the Flyers off their game and help Columbus rewrite a franchise record book filled with dubious marks. Whatever Hartnell did, it worked. The sluggish Flyers were held without an even-strength goal and fell to a Columbus roster littered with AHL fill-ins by a 4-3 score last night.

WHEN THE Wild come to town later this week, the Flyers and Wells Fargo Center staff will be taking extra precautions against the spread of germs after multiple Minnesota players were diagnosed with the mumps. Although it's an illness most often associated with children, it's vicious for adults. The illness recently has ravaged players from Minnesota, Anaheim and St. Louis. Wild defensemen Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin were the latest to fall ill last week, following Keith Ballard, who was the first player diagnosed.

MONTREAL - Shayne Gostisbehere's surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee could not have gone better, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. Hextall said it was "only the ACL" that was affected. "Sometimes there are other elements involved, but there was nothing else," Hextall said before Saturday's game in Montreal. "The information was as good as we could have gotten. " Gostisbehere, 21, a heralded defensive prospect who played two games with the Flyers before being sent back to the AHL Phantoms, will probably resume playing in three to three and a half months, Hextall said.

Surprises have marked the first five-plus weeks of the Flyers' season, topped by winger Jake Voracek's emergence as one of the NHL's top scorers. But an under-the-radar development has helped keep the injury-plagued team afloat: the steady play of Nick Schultz, who signed as a free agent in July and figured to be the Flyers' seventh defenseman. At least he figured to be No. 7 to most observers. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, however, was not one of them. "I said at the time, we have seven defensemen who are good defensemen," Hextall said the other day. "I've seen Nick Schultz play since he was 19. I was scouting in those years.

Columbus left winger Scott Hartnell returned to the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night, and he and his teammates interrupted the good mojo the Flyers had built recently in his old home. Blue Jackets 4, Flyers 3. To borrow a Richie Ashburn-ism: "Hard to believe, Harry. " Columbus was missing eight regulars - including goalie Sergei Bobrovsky - and had entered the night on a franchise-record-tying nine-game losing skid. But Nick Foligno and James Wisniewski each scored a pair of goals, and Ryan Johansen had four assists as Columbus snapped the Flyers' three-game winning streak.
