THE ODDSMAKERS say that Craig Berube is most likely to be the next NHL coach fired and that his team is among the least likely to make the playoffs, even after last night's thrilling, 3-2 overtime victory over a weary Washington team pushed their point total to 39. But that didn't deter some on-the-spot ciphering by the game-winner, Jake Voracek, or some of the other boys after last night's hard-earned victory, which pulled the Flyers to within nine...

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.

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.

After taking part in pregame warm-ups, Flyers captain Claude Giroux decided he could be effective enough to play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. Giroux, who began the night tied for fourth in the NHL with 43 points, centered a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek. Earlier in the day, Giroux skated gingerly and did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate in Voorhees. Coach Craig Berube said that Giroux - who suffered a severe skate cut near his left ankle in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Friday and missed the next game - had been cleared by doctors to play, but that it depended on his comfort level.

WITH RANDY CARLYLE jettisoned in Toronto, Craig Berube was installed as the odds-on favorite yesterday by a Las Vegas oddsmaker to be the next NHL coach fired. You wouldn't get even money on that bet, coming in at 4-11. Peter Laviolette was once held in equally high regard by the bookmakers and, well, those tickets were cashed three games into last season. Ho-hum. For Berube, it was just another Wednesday. He has heard all the rumors before. He's been around the Flyers since 1986 and witnessed six head-coaching regimes take hold.

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.

Ed Snider, who brought hockey to Philadelphia in 1967 as founder of the Flyers, is battling an unspecified cancer and completed chemotherapy this week, according to several sources. "He's going to work every day and it's treatable," a source in the organization said. The condition is "non-life-threatening" and Snider is "doing well," said Ike Richman, a spokesman for Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers' parent company. "He is happy and healthy. " Snider's involvement with the team and the company was not affected by his condition or treatment, Richman said.
