Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and an assist and Jimmy Howard stopped 25 shots to lead the visiting Detroit Red Wings to a 4-1 victory over the injury-depleted Pittsburgh Penguins . Johan Franzen added his team-leading 14th goal for Detroit and Danny Cleary provided some insurance with a pair of late goals as the Red Wings won their third straight. The Penguins played without captain Sidney Crosby, who missed his third straight game and 23d overall this season following a recurrence of concussion-like symptoms.

NEWARK, N.J. - Mike Richards did his best to downplay the situation. But even in his low-key style, the anticipation of playing against the Flyers was inescapable. The center and former captain will make his first appearance against his old team when the Los Angeles Kings visit the Flyers for Saturday night's game at the Wells Fargo Center. Richards was dealt to the Kings over the summer, and Thursday's game at the Prudential Center against the New Jersey Devils was only his third with his new team.

VETERAN CENTER Blair Betts is in Flyers training camp trying to win a roster spot. The fourth-line candidate had six goals in 81 games last year with the Rangers. His first NHL goal was in 2002 with Calgary and came from an accidental and rather eclectic line pairing. "I remember it like it was yesterday," he said, laughing. "Craig Berube, myself and Jarome Iginla ended up being on the ice somehow. "We obviously overlapped [shifts]. " Betts recalled Iginla carrying the puck up ice and sliding a pass to Berube, currently a Flyers assistant coach, but a notorious fighter as a player.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke yesterday signed two players who are expected to add size and depth to his roster and hired former Flyer Dave Brown as an assistant coach. Clarke signed free-agent left winger Scott Daniels and Finnish defenseman Janne Niinimaa to contracts. Terms of the deals were not announced. Daniels, 26, is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound two-year veteran who had three goals and 254 penalty minutes in 53 games for the Hartford Whalers this past season. He was recommended to Clarke by former Hartford coach Paul Holmgren, now director of professional scouting for the Flyers, and is expected to add the toughness up front that the Flyers lacked in the NHL playoffs.

While Flyers captain Eric Lindros missed his fourth game since suffering from headaches caused by another concussion, he was at the First Union Center exercising yesterday. According to team spokesman Zack Hill, Lindros was in the Flyers' training room before the team's victory against the Boston Bruins and did a full weight workout. "He didn't skate, but he did enough of a weight workout to get sweaty," Hill said. Hill said Lindros left before the game began and will fly to Chicago today to be examined by concussion specialist Dr. James Kelly at Northwestern University Medical Center.

Despite a decent road effort by the Flyers last night, the result was the same as in all too many games this season: another loss. This one was a 3-2 defeat to the Ottawa Senators before 19,639 fans at Scotiabank Place. The Flyers have now lost seven of their last eight games away from the Wachovia Center. With the victory, Ottawa swept the four-game regular-season series with the Flyers. Also, the Flyers have won only one of their last nine regular-season games in Ottawa dating back to last season.

Simon Gagne, who is expected back in the Flyers' lineup tonight against Ottawa after missing five games because of a small tear in his right groin, is going back to the Olympics. The Flyers' fleet-footed left winger, who was part of Team Canada at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, last night was named to the roster for Turin in February. "I am looking forward to keeping our No. 1 spot in the Olympics," Gagne said. "On the other side, I am going over there to learn again how to be a leader and a better player.

One more chance, before the playoffs, to beat what Flyers winger John LeClair yesterday called "a team we measure ourselves against. " One more chance to break a chain of swamplands futility that stretches nearly three years (0-6-1 since March 25, 1997) to win in the lair of the New Jersey Devils, a place that was seldom hospitable to the Flyers in the '90s. They went 4-21-2 in the regular season from the start of the 1990-91 campaign through the most recent visit, Dec. 22. The Flyers still are chasing the Devils in the race for first in the Atlantic Division, but facing a 13-point deficit and this being the only remaining head-to-head encounter in the Flyers' final 28 games, overtaking the Devils in the standings might not be realistic.

Game 1: Tonight at 7 The Goalies It took the Flyers' Marty Biron until he was 30 years old for the chance to compete in the playoffs, and he's likely full of confidence now after stopping 39 of 41 shots in Game 7 against Washington. Coach John Stevens called it Biron's best game as a Flyer. He lost to the Canadiens, 5-2, in his only start against them, on Nov. 1, but he's 12-7 with a 2.17 goals-against average against them during his career. The Canadiens felt so strongly about 20-year-old rookie Carey Price that they dealt Cristobal Huet to the Capitals three weeks after they recalled Price from the AHL. Price became the fourth rookie goalie to get a Game 7 shutout in the 5-0 win over Boston.

Though much of the attention during Flyers training camp has centered on the newcomers, there has been a noticeable difference in left winger Simon Gagne. He has been quiet on the ice. You don't notice him. He is not taking hits, and he still seems tentative going into the corner. He also doesn't seem to be winning any battles for the puck. Yesterday, Gagne acknowledged that his left shoulder - surgically repaired in May for a partial dislocation - is bothering him. "My shoulder is OK, but I don't feel at my best," Gagne said.

WHEN CRAIG BERUBE was tabbed to replace Peter Laviolette as the Flyers head coach in October of 2013, he vowed to make them a more responsible bunch, one that would compete hard every night, one that would never take a shift or a game off, one that would become more consistent. Now, as his second season and first full one as their coach has been completed, Berube's future as that coach may be determined by the execution of those principles, and not the way he imagined back on that day. Because the perception of the 2014-2015 Flyers is that they did not compete hard every night, that shifts and games were taken off, and that they were anything but consistent.

One day into Craig Berube's minor-league hockey career, John Paddock sat him down for the kind of cold-truth conversation that a coach sometimes has to have with a player on the margin. This was the fall of 1986, and Berube had been a point-per-game forward the previous two years in major juniors, a 6-foot, 205-pound left winger who was beginning to learn that he didn't have the requisite speed and skill to be the same kind of scorer for the Hershey Bears, then the Flyers' affiliate in the American Hockey League - let alone in the NHL. "I was in between, thinking I could play a little bit, not knowing what I was going to do," Berube, now the Flyers head coach, said in an interview last week.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Even before he was promoted from a Flyers assistant to their 18th head coach in franchise history, Craig Berube would run several miles a few times each week, especially when the team was on the road. The pattern continues. "I like doing it. It helps relieve stress," Berube said the other day. With his new position, and with the Flyers struggling for wins and goals, the stress has intensified. There are a lot more duties, a lot more headaches. And, he hopes, a lot more satisfaction.

Exactly 1 year ago, Andreas Nodl was toiling in anonymity with the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms in the small town of Glens Falls, N.Y. Nodl had made his mark under John Stevens, appearing in 43 games with the former Flyers head coach. Under Peter Laviolette, Nodl, 23, had lasted just five games, averaging less than 8 minutes per game in ice time, before being sent back to Adirondack. He was unsure what Laviolette had in store for him. "It was pretty tough," Nodl recalled. "You're not that familiar with the guys.

Flyers coach John Stevens yesterday juggled three of his four lines and promised to give his third defensive pairing more minutes to take some strain off his top two blue line duos. The Flyers' No. 1 and No. 2 defensive pairings - Chris Pronger and Matt Carle, along with Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn - have been logging an inordinate number of minutes. All four, who are also used on special teams, are in the NHL's top 5 percent in time on ice. The 35-year-old Pronger leads the league with an average of 28 minutes, 13 seconds per game.

The Flyers gave coach John Stevens a one-year contract extension worth $650,000 yesterday. In expressing his enthusiasm for the job, Stevens cited Comcast-Spectacor chairman Ed Snider and president Peter Luukko, and Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. Comcast-Spectator owns the team. "It's obviously exciting for me to continue on with this group," the coach said last night. "I can continue to build my relationship with Homer, Snider and Peter Luukko.
