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.

Because of salary-cap restraints, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall didn't make a big splash in the offseason. That could change Monday, though Hextall faces difficult odds as he tries to sign gifted Harvard left winger Jimmy Vesey. Vesey, the Hobey Baker winner as collegiate hockey's top player last season, becomes an unrestricted free agent Monday, and he has many teams courting him. If the Flyers are able to sign him, he could land a spot in their top six this season.

The Flyers have scored 13 unanswered goals in these playoffs. The last NHL team to do that was the Anaheim Ducks in 2006.

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 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.

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)

It was one timeout that Peter Laviolette, the master of such things, actually regretted. Never mind that Laviolette's team scored just 55 seconds after he whistled them together, providing a last-minute reminder for the pending five-on-three advantage the Flyers were about to enjoy. Game 3 against Pittsburgh was tied at that point Sunday afternoon. Danny Briere scored to make it 2-1. Less than four minutes later, Briere piled on to make it 3-1. The Flyers never looked back.

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.

Lately, anyone who follows Philadelphia sports - the four major pro franchises, that is - has to feel like the last person in line at the DMV. You've taken your number. You're waiting your turn. And you're just hoping that the process, however long it takes, turns out to be less aggravating than the last time you went through it. That's all we're doing now, it seems. We're waiting for the Eagles, the Phillies, the Sixers, and the Flyers to become more competitive, more interesting.

  Les Bowen: Bradford makes more sense Unless you are hatching a NovaCare coup that would oust Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, who plan to start Sam Bradford at quarterback this season, it would make no sense to give the majority of Eagles training-camp reps to Carson Wentz. It might make some sense to give the second overall pick in this year's draft more reps early on than a third quarterback would normally get, but I'm pretty sure the other players want to make sure their starting QB is ready.

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.

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.

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.
