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.

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.

The Flyers signed 24-year-old forward Roman Lyubimov to a one-year, two-way entry-level contract on Monday. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Lyubimov spent the last six seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League with CSKA Moscow. "He's a big guy. He skates well, plays a solid two-way game," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. "We feel like he adds depth to the organization. We'll see how he does in training camp. " Hextall said the team was aware of Lyubimov for the last couple of years, "but he really popped at the World Championships this past year" when he represented Russia and had four goals and four assists in 10 games.

For the Flyers, the focus of development camp - which started in Voorhees on Thursday - is on fundamentals, nutrition, and conditioning habits that will help the prospects in their pursuit of the NHL. The evaluation will come at a later date. For some, like touted defenseman Ivan Provorov and right winger Travis Konecny, the scrutiny will begin during training camp in September. Both are 19 and have a legitimate shot to earn a roster spot with the Flyers this season. Both have dominated juniors and, because of their ages, would not be permitted to spend this season in the AHL with the Phantoms.

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.

TORONTO - Maybe they should rename Flyers' overtime games Ghosttime . Twenty-nine seconds into overtime, Shayne Gostisbehere's goal lifted the Flyers to an important 5-4 win over Toronto at the Air Canada Center on Saturday night. It was the speedy defenseman's fourth overtime goal this season, the most in NHL history by a rookie. "Ghost," right winger Wayne Simmonds said, "is an overtime killer. " "He's unbelievable. He's extremely confident and he always wants the puck out there," Brayden Schenn said after the Flyers moved to within three points of a playoff spot.

TAMPA, Fla. - As expected, Brandon Manning replaced highly touted Shayne Gostisbehere in the Flyers' ever-revolving defensive lineup Thursday night. After a slow start, Manning played well in the team's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay, but he may not be playing too many games for the Flyers in the coming weeks. After the game, the Flyers announced they had signed 6-foot-1, 200-pound Carlo Colaiacovo, an unrestricted free agent. He played in 25 games with St. Louis last season, collecting four points and a minus-4 rating.

Forward Nick Cousins, a restricted free agent, accepted his qualifying offer for a 2016-17 contract with the Flyers, the team announced Thursday. The 22-year-old Ontario native was selected by the Flyers in the third round of the 2011 NHL draft. He scored six goals and had five assists in 36 games with the Flyers last season and played in all six of the Flyers' Stanley Cup playoff games. Before being called up to the Flyers in February, Cousins led the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, with 38 points on 12 goals and 26 assists in 38 games.

STONE HARBOR, N.J. - Ivan Provorov lifted himself out of the water and several young fans holding a blank poster board larger than their bodies got in his way. They asked him for an autograph as he moved to the next stage of the challenge course. Another fan asked for a photo and another asked him to sign a shirt. As the young defenseman began walking away, an adult whispered to a child, "He's going to be really good. " Provorov, the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NHL draft, and more than 30 other Flyers prospects greeted fans throughout the day Tuesday as part of the team's Trial on the Isle event.

If overcoming adversity leads to success, center Cole Bardreau should have a solid NHL career. Signed by the Flyers as a free agent last year, the 5-foot-10, 193-pound Bardreau - who fractured his neck while playing for Cornell in 2013 and was nearly paralyzed - looks like he has a future as a scrappy third- or fourth-line player. "He's tenacious, irritating, hard-working," general manager Ron Hextall said after watching Bardreau at the Flyers' development camp in Voorhees the other day. "Plays hard and plays physical.

Towering Sam Morin has had a tough offseason. First, he underwent hip and abdominal surgery, and then he battled strep throat, forcing him to miss the first two days of the Flyers' development camp. But the 6-foot-7, 227-pound defenseman was on the ice for drills Saturday during Day 3 of camp in Voorhees. "It was my first time out there in two months since my surgery," said Morin, a first-round draft pick in 2013, "so I was feeling a little tired in the beginning, but I was pretty happy to finish the practice.

German Rubtsov, the shifty center who was the Flyers' top draft pick last month, is not at the team's development camp in Voorhees and hasn't been able to get an early start on what should be a long NHL career. Contractual obligations have him stuck in Russia. Those obligations could have him playing in Russia's KHL for two years before he is competing in North America, whether it's with the Flyers or the AHL's Phantoms. But that may not be such a bad thing. For one, assuming Rubtsov can't get out of his contract (he's trying)

Suddenly, the Flyers are deep in goaltending prospects. In April, they signed touted free-agent Alex Lyon, who starred at Yale, and last month they selected Carter Hart - the first goalie chosen in the draft - in the second round. The Flyers are stockpiling promising goalies in the organization. They drafted three goaltenders in 2015, and Anthony Stolarz, a second-round selection in 2012, is coming off an all-star season with the AHL's Phantoms. Lyon, 23, drew interest from a dozen NHL teams but signed an entry-level deal with the Flyers in early April, thus bypassing his senior season at Yale.

Speedy right winger Nicolas Aube-Kubel, selected by the Flyers in the second round of the 2014 draft, said he benefited from an AHL stint with Lehigh Valley late last season. "The six games I played with the Phantoms helped a lot," Aube-Kubel said after the first day of the Flyers' development camp Friday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "I think I know what to expect for next year, and it also helps me to know what to do this summer. " Playing for Val d'Or in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Aube-Kubel had 38 goals and 84 points in 61 games last season.

Four recent first-round draft picks - Ivan Provorov, Travis Konecny, Travis Sanheim and Sam Morin - will be among the 34 prospects at the Flyers' development camp that starts Thursday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The camp, directed by development coaches Kjell Samuelsson and John Riley, is open to the public and is free to attend. "It's not about evaluating," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. "It's about teaching. " Camp attendees - 16 forwards, 12 defensemen and six goalies - will be on the ice for five days before heading to Stone Harbor for the team's annual Trial on the Isle next Tuesday.
