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.

At the top of Flyers general manager Ron Hextall's summer to-do list: upgrading an offense that struggled this season, especially in the playoffs. Truth is, the Flyers could use two new scorers, but that will happen only if Hextall can make a trade because, as it stands, cap restraints will probably allow him to add only one free-agent forward. During the regular season, the Flyers averaged 2.57 goals per game, 22nd in the NHL. In the six-game playoff series against Washington, they managed a total of six goals - and one was an empty-netter, and another was a shot that was going wide but deflected into the net off a Capitals defenseman.

Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev was charged last week with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance and use or possession of drug paraphernalia. Medvedev, 33, is charged with having a blood alcohol content of more than .16 percent - more than double the legal limit for drivers - when he was stopped by Lower Moreland police last month, according to court documents. Medvedev is a Russian national who signed a one-year contract with the Flyers last May. Police said he was driving on Byberry Road in Lower Moreland Township early one morning last month when he was stopped by police.

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.

Larry Zeidel, a rugged former Flyers defenseman who became infamous for a bloody, stick-swinging incident in 1968, died Tuesday morning at Pennsylvania Hospital. He was 86 and had been battling congestive heart failure and kidney problems. "He was as tough as they come on the ice, but off it, he was a total gentleman," said Joe Inemer, one of Mr. Zeidel's close friends. "He'd give you the shirt off his back. " Mr. Zeidel, regarded as one of the game's best fighters, spent most of his career in the minors, playing parts of five seasons in the NHL. He finished his career at age 39, playing nine games with the Flyers in 1968-69.

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.

Rick MacLeish, the smooth-skating center who scored the goal that gave the Flyers their first Stanley Cup championship in 1974, is battling multiple medical problems in a Philadelphia hospital. MacLeish, 66, has been hospitalized for six weeks. "We deeply appreciate all the support that's been given to our dad," said Brianna MacLeish, one of Rick's two daughters. "At this time, we want to spend time with our dad, and the family asks for our privacy. " Brianna MacLeish did not want to specify her father's medical problems.

R.J. Umberger's days with the Flyers appear numbered, but the veteran winger still believes he can contribute to an NHL team. "I know I can play a third-line role," Umberger, 34, said when the Flyers cleared out their lockers last month. "I know I can play a fourth-line role if a team wants me to do that. I know I can do it. No problem. I can accept it. " With the Flyers, he was a healthy scratch in 23 of the last 24 games, playing only in the meaningless season finale in Brooklyn.

Next month's draft is critical for the offensively challenged Flyers. They are loaded with promising defensive prospects but thin on up-and-coming forwards. For that reason, they are expected to go heavy on forwards - particularly those with good size - in the first few rounds. In the last three years, the Flyers have selected a defenseman with their first overall draft pick. Look for that trend to change when they make the 17th or 18th overall selection in the first round on June 24. The Flyers will pick 18th if Nashville loses its playoff series to San Jose.

Drake Caggiula turned down many offers, including one from the Flyers, and signed with Edmonton on Friday night, according to numerous reports. Caggiula led North Dakota to the NCAA championship, and since he played three collegiate seasons under Dave Hakstol, the Flyers seemed like one of the favorites to sign the left winger/center. Instead, he opted for Edmonton, where he may play alongside Connor McDavid. The best undrafted college free agent this year, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior isn't big, but he brings tenacity and dynamic offensive skills - witness his 25 goals and 51 points in 39 games this season.

Ivan Provorov, the Flyers' No. 1 selection in the draft last year, was named the Western Hockey League's top defenseman Wednesday. Provorov, 19, of the Brandon Wheat Kings, led WHL defensemen with 73 points (21 goals, 52 assists), and he topped the league with a plus-64 rating in 62 games. Selected seventh overall last June, he finished the season second in points per game (1.18) for a defenseman. Calgary's Travis Sanheim, another Flyers prospect, finished first by averaging 1.31 points per game.

The Flyers' playoff run is over, but Ivan Provorov, the ultra-promising defenseman who could make the team in training camp, is putting the finishing touches on a superb season. Provorov, 19, selected seventh overall in last year's draft, has helped the Brandon Wheat Kings reach the Western Hockey League finals that start Friday against Seattle. Brandon dropped a 7-2 decision to Seattle in the teams' lone regular-season meeting. "We didn't have our best game," Provorov said in a phone interview from Brandon earlier in the week.
