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.

BUFFALO - There is a wall in the Brandon Wheat Kings' weight room at their home rink, Keystone Centre, filled with colorful photos and stats of team alumni. It serves as both a nod to the stars of yesteryear and an ounce of motivation: Put in the work here and you can be on this wall one day. There is a photo of Brian Propp, a message depicting his 194-point season in 1978-79, which still stands as a franchise record. Ivan Provorov has played in Brandon, the only Manitoba-based team in the Western Hockey League, only since committing there last Aug. 14. Yet he became intimately familiar with the wall, absorbing his franchise's 79-year history.

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.

The Flyers' development camp, which ended Sunday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, offered plenty of positives, but none that would make the team stamp any prospects as potential NHL players this fall. That doesn't mean it can't happen, but the Flyers aren't going to say so in July. General manager Ron Hextall "has been preaching patience and that is very important," said Flyers player development coach John Riley, who ran the camp along with Kjell Samuelsson, a former Flyer. "It's a big jump for these guys to think they will go from where they were playing last year, certainly the guys who were all playing amateur last year.

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.

MY SINCERE wish is for Ivan Provorov to blossom into a bona fide NHL star, so successful that he someday wins the trophy awarded by the NHL each season to its most valuable Russian player. I like the Flyers' top pick, like his heady game and grit he displays for an 18-year-old. I like the poise with which he already conducts himself on and off the ice. But that's not really why I want him to win the award. It's the award's name: the Kharlamov Trophy. Yes, that Kharlamov.

GENERAL MANAGERS, no matter the sport, typically keep things close to their vest when talking about the state of their rosters. And for good reason. But when Flyers boss Ron Hextall said in the weeks leading up to the draft that he didn't think there would be much roster turnover this offseason, perhaps all his cards were on the table. The Flyers were around $2 million under the NHL's $71.4 million salary-cap limit going into the offseason. But Hextall was able to work a little magic to improve the roster, even if the result was what he said was about $350,000 in space right now. Hextall was being honest when he spoke in late June, because there hasn't been much roster turnover from last season's team, which finished 33-31-18 and 14 points out of the playoffs.

Andy Dane and Anthony Nelson, two 30-year-olds, took a break last Sunday from their darts game at the Perch Pub on Locust Street to nurse beers and watch some golf on TV - the John Deere Classic in Illinois on CBS Sports. "This is the worst time in Philadelphia sports since I was a kid," Nelson said with a moan. He didn't know or seem to care that Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia was televising the hapless Phils in a game against the San Francisco Giants. Two blocks away at the Misconduct Tavern was Al McLaverty, 49, one of three guys watching the local Comcast SportsNet as the Phils bumbled through the Giants game.

Michael Del Zotto was hoping to avoid arbitration and sign a two-year deal with the Flyers. The 25-year-old defenseman got his wish on both counts. With an arbitration hearing set for Tuesday, Del Zotto agreed to a two-year contract extension worth a reported $7.75 million with the Flyers on Thursday. "We always wanted a two-year deal and didn't want to settle on one," Del Zotto said in a conference call. "I think both sides wanted that. " Del Zotto signed a one-year, $1.3 million free-agent deal with the Flyers last year.

IT TURNS out an arbitration hearing won't be necessary after all when it comes to Michael Del Zotto and the Flyers. Just five days before the 25-year-old defenseman was scheduled to have his salary-arbitration hearing, the two parties agreed on a reported two-year contract worth $7.75 million, $3.875 million against the cap per year. This leaves the Flyers with around $360,000 in cap space, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Signing Del Zotto, a veteran of six NHL seasons, was always on offseason priority for Hextall.

THERE IS a good possibility sometime in the near future that the Flyers have a roster loaded with homegrown talent. The team has a stockpile of defensive prospects after adding seventh overall draft pick Ivan Provorov to the equation. He joins the likes of Travis Sanheim, Samuel Morin, Robert Hagg and Shayne Gostisbehere as the future on the team's blue line. The Flyers added a forward with a second first-round pick last month in Travis Konecny, selected 24th overall. Their captain, Claude Giroux, a first-round pick in 2006, is locked into a contract through 2022.

When Travis Sanheim was chosen 17th overall in the first round of the 2014 draft, eyebrows were raised because many scouts had him projected as a late-second-round selection. But after a breakout season in the Western Hockey League in 2014-15, Sanheim has more than justified the selection and is now among the Flyers' top prospects. The smooth-skating, 6-foot-3, 198-pound defenseman is coming off an outstanding season with the Calgary Hitmen (15 goals, 65 points in 67 games) and is considered one of the Flyers' future cornerstones.

WALKING AROUND Stone Harbor, N.J., at the annual "Trial on the Isle" portion of Flyers prospect development camp, one couldn't help but hear the buzz from fans surrounding the team's future defensive corps. The same could be said of the atmosphere throughout the week at the team's practice facility in Voorhees, N.J., especially considering the Flyers added seventh overall pick Ivan Provorov to a future crop that already was stockpiled with plenty of talent, including Shayne Gostisbehere, Travis Sanheim, Samuel Morin and Robert Hagg - among others.

Center Scott Laughton seemed out of place doing drills with Sam Dove-McFalls, David Kase, and Travis Konecny, among others, during the Flyers' development camp Thursday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The latter three players, all 18 years old, were selected in the NHL draft last month. Laughton, at 21, is in his fourth development camp since he was a first-round pick (20th overall) in 2012. "I feel like the old guy here a little bit," Laughton, who appears more physically fit than last year, said with a smile.
