Players to watch FLYERS: Scott Hartnell The Flyers' leading scorer through the regular season with 37 goals has just two tallies in seven playoff games this spring. Hartnell's tireless work in the helped produce Claude Giroux's 15-point run, but it's time for Hartnell to get back on the score sheet. DEVILS: Ilya Kovalchuk He was held without a shot in Game 1 for the first time since Nov. 23, 2011. Kovalchuk was not available to meet the media on Monday.

THE NHL is not expected to release a full schedule until the players ratify the new collective bargaining agreement. A simple majority vote is required of the NHLPA's 740 members. Voting began Thursday evening and will wrap up on Saturday. The Flyers officially will open a 6-day training camp on Sunday with physicals. It remains unclear as to whether the team will also practice on-ice that day. The home opener will be next Saturday at 3 o'clock against Pittsburgh, as previously reported.

EVEN AFTER 80 games, the Flyers' playoff picture remains ridiculously convoluted. Just about the only things we know are that the Flyers have clinched a berth - and that they will be opening on the road. Where? Your guess is as good as anyone. There are still 270 possible outcomes to determine the Flyers' first-round opponent. Out of those 270, approximately 105 scenarios have them opening at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers. The rest are split: 83 for Pittsburgh and 82 for Boston.

NEWARK, N.J. -  Midway through the third period, with the Devils sitting on a comfortable lead that the Flyers barely threatened, the Prudential Center staff played a video montage of Rocky's most painful beatdowns. Unlike their favorite mythical character, Philadelphia's hockey team appears to be down for the count. Thanks to a late second-period goal by Dainius Zubrus, the Devils now have the Flyers on the ropes after a 4-2 win in Game 4 that was one of the most lopsided, yet deceivingly close, games of the season.

ONE DAY after losing defenseman Andrej Meszaros to a possible season-ending injury, the Flyers locked up one candidate to replace him in the lineup. The Flyers announced Wednesday that they have signed defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to a multiyear contract extension, in addition to signing first-round pick Scott Laughton to a 3-year entry-level deal. Bourdon, 22, appeared in 45 games for the Flyers last season. He was a restricted free agent this summer, after earning a prorated share of his $875,000 contract last season.

ZAC RINALDO is a valuable player for the Flyers, his reputation to the contrary. When he is good - drawing penalties, creating hesitancy - they are usually good as well. Not to put too fine a point on this - he is usually a fourth-line guy, after all, and the minutes will never be big - but if the Flyers are to make a serious run this spring, Rinaldo could potentially play a meaningful part in it. But then games like last night's happen - and, well, now what? With the playoffs still not clinched and only four games remaining in the season, what do they do about Zac?

FORWARDS   Flyers: It is impossible to overestimate how much the Flyers miss having Jeff Carter - their leading goal scorer in the regular season. Still, the Flyers have plenty of depth to outlast the Bruins. Against Buffalo, Ville Leino netted three goals, including one game-winner in OT, but had a relatively quiet series along with Scott Hartnell (four points). The Flyers scored 22 goals against Buffalo and 10 of them came from Danny Briere and James van Riemsdyk.

Brad Marsh says that even though the tide already has begun to turn, plenty of seats on the Flyers' bandwagon still are available. "I think most people in Canada are rooting for us," the Flyers' defenseman said. "The Oilers are looked at kind of like the Dallas Cowboys. People root for them to lose. " But the Flyers, the People's Team? What kind of people? The Palestine Liberation Front? In light of Ron Hextall's whack of Kent Nilsson, the pregame Montreal brawl and Mike Keenan's less-than-subtle use of his heavyweights when his team has fallen behind, Flyer hating and baiting is back almost to 1974-75 levels.

PETER LAVIOLETTE loved his team's jump in the first period. Jaromir Jagr said the Flyers played the way they wanted. Rookie Eric Wellwood said they generated enough quality chances to win the game. Last night, the Flyers' locker room seemed to admire their shot total (36) and total attempts at the net (68) more than the final score. Unfortunately, the Flyers didn't really make Panthers backup goalie Scott Clemmensen sweat until Ilya Bryzgalov was safely on the bench in the final minute.
