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.

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.

Phil Myers probably would have been a first-round pick in next month's NHL draft if the Flyers didn't have the foresight to sign the 6-foot-5, 208-pound free agent during last year's training camp. Since then, the junior-level defenseman has blossomed faster than anyone could have expected, strengthening the Flyers' already-deep group of up-and-coming blue liners. "There's no question" he would have been a first-round selection if he was in this year's draft, said Craig Button, the highly respected draft guru for TSN in Canada.

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.

Google "well-traveled" and don't be surprised if T.J. Brennan's name pops up. At 27, he already has been with seven NHL organizations, and he is hoping he has made his final stop. In his backyard, of all places. Brennan is living the dream. He has signed a contract with the Flyers, the team he idolized while growing up in nearby Moorestown. "The Flyers," Brennan said after working out at their Voorhees practice facility the other day, "are the closest team to my heart. I grew up right cross the bridge and I was very fortunate to be able to go see games.

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.

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.

Who will emerge as the Flyers' No. 1 goalie? That's one of the more interesting questions that will be answered at the Flyers' main training camp, which opens Friday at 9:45 a.m. in Voorhees. A year ago, Steve Mason was clearly No. 1 when camp started, but Michal Neuvirth had such a strong 2015-16 season - and a remarkable playoff performance - that he has emerged as a candidate to win the majority of starts. Mason was superb down the stretch last season and steered the Flyers into the playoffs.

Ever since the Flyers selected Radel Fazleev in the sixth round of the 2014 draft, the sturdy center/left winger has made marked improvement each season. Now Fazleev, after a Western Hockey League season in which he collected 71 points in 59 games, is preparing to make the leap from juniors to Lehigh Valley in the AHL. If he continues making strides, he may one day be viewed as a sixth-round steal. The 6-foot, 199-pound Fazleev has adequate (and getting better) speed and is regarded as a strong two-way player who does a lot of little things to win games.

The Flyers finished 22nd in the NHL in scoring last season, and they managed a total of just six goals - one of them was an empty-netter - in six playoff games against Washington. In short, their forwards lacked creativity, speed and natural scoring ability - three areas that are part of young right winger Travis Konecny's resume. Training camp will determine if he is ready to make the huge leap from the Ontario Hockey League, which he has dominated, to the NHL. "I think I just need to use my speed and play my game," Konecny said after the Flyers opened their rookie camp in Voorhees on Tuesday.

Many Flyers fans want the team to continue injecting young defensemen into the lineup. Last Nov. 14, after an injury to Mark Streit, Shayne Gostisbehere was promoted from the AHL's Phantoms, and he jump-started the team. Gostisbehere scored 17 goals - a rookie record for a Flyers defenseman - and finished second in the race for rookie of the year. Now it could be Ivan Provorov's turn to be a rookie defenseman in the spotlight. But first he must prove to cautious general manager Ron Hextall and his staff that he deserves a roster spot.

Radko Gudas, who will miss the World Cup because of an injured right wrist, was among a handful of Flyers veterans skating at the team's practice facility in Voorhees on Monday - 12 days before they are required to be on the ice. But while Gudas said the wrist has been slow to heal - he can't shoot because of the pain - the burly defenseman is confident he will be ready when the Flyers open the season Oct. 14 in Los Angeles. Gudas, along with Flyers teammates Jake Voracek and Michal Neuvirth, had been among the players selected for Team Czech Republic, but he had to bypass the upcoming tournament because of the wrist injury.

Even though the World Cup of Hockey doesn't start until next week, the Czech Republic team has been hit hard by injuries. That means players like the Flyers' Jake Voracek and Michal Neuvirth need to have strong showings if the Czechs are going to be a factor in the eight-team field. Key forwards David Krejci of Boston and Tomas Hertl of San Jose, along with rugged Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas, will miss the tourney because of various injuries. They have been replaced by non-NHL players - two who play in Russia's KHL (forward Michal Birner and defenseman Tomas Kundratek)

Happy birthday, Flyers The Broad Street Bullies are celebrating a half century of existence this year with a commemorative jersey that has a bit of extra flair. The traditional orange, white, and black are still present, but the jersey has some snazzy gold accents for that extra oomph . According to the organization, Flyers owner Ed Snider approved the new look before his death earlier this year. Some teams that do commemorative anniversary jerseys opt for a throwback look, but the Flyers jerseys haven't changed all that much since the hockey team was founded in 1967.

Bob Dailey, 63, a two-time all-star who twice won the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the Flyers' best defenseman, died Wednesday after a long battle with cancer. Nicknamed "The Count," Mr. Dailey was a member of the Flyers team that posted an NHL-record 35-game unbeaten streak in the 1979-80 season. "Bob was an integral part" of that team, said club president Paul Holmgren, noting that the Flyers reached the Stanley Cup Finals that season. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
