Anybody who wants to know how Tim Kerr really felt about coming back from his latest shoulder operation will have to wait until the Flyers win, or something else happens to put Kerr in a better mood. Led out to face the press last night with his left shoulder bright red from the postgame ministrations of the training crew, Kerr was less than expansive. His answers tended to alternate between monosyllables and sarcasm. To virtually every question about his first game since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Nov. 21, Kerr responded that his shoulder "felt great.

Lanny McDonald, a bellwether of some good Toronto teams in the '70s, has lived to be the last leaf on the tree. In his final spring. From an old, forsaken bough, the Calgary right wing has clung to a 16th NHL season in order to accomplish three things: 500 goals, 1,000 points and one Stanley Cup. With final pushes from his 36-year-old legs, he squeezed out the required 11 goals and the 12 points by mid-March. Much more impressively, he managed to do it without busying the talk-show lines.

The Flyers welcomed Fred Shero home last night. Shero, who said yesterday at a media luncheon that he regretted ever leaving Philadelphia, was inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame in an emotional ceremony before the Flyers' 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Also inducted last night was Rick MacLeish, Shero's flashy center from the Broad Street Bullies era. But Shero wasn't just visiting the site of his greatest coaching glories, the home ice of the 1974 and '75 Stanley Cup champions.

DEEP IN the orange belly of the beast, Broad Street Bully joined 20,000 fellow-diehards at the Wachovia Center last night, hoping to power our desperate Flyers to victory by shrieking our crazed heads off. A MAN & HIS CUP: Bully will never forget seeing Fritz Schoeninger, 58 - who has seen more than 1,000 Flyers games since 1967 and says that his hometown is "Flyerdelphia" - hoisting his homemade Stanley Cup seconds after the Flyers beat Montreal...

It is fitting, since Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent led the Flyers to their two Stanley Cups, that they should be the first two inductees into the Flyers' Hall of Fame. Neither Clarke nor Parent are strangers to halls of fame. They are the only two players from NHL expansion teams in the Hockey Hall of Fame. While membership in the Hockey Hall of Fame carries more notoriety, being the original inductees into the new Flyers' Hall is a tribute to the respect that Clarke and Parent have brought to the franchise.

Two key members of the Flyers' 1974 and 1975 Stanley Cup championship teams were inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame last night at the Spectrum. Former coach Fred Shero and high-scoring center Rick MacLeish joined Bob Clarke, Bernie Parent, Keith Allen, Bill Barber and Ed Snider in the three- year-old shrine. Shero coached the Flyers from 1971-72 through 1977-78 - the longest tenure of any Flyers coach to date. He compiled a 308-151-95 regular-season record and a 48-35 playoff mark.

Bill Barber, perhaps the best left winger of his era and the Flyers' all- time leading goal-scorer, yesterday was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Barber, the Flyers' director of pro scouting, scored 420 goals in his 13 seasons with the Flyers and was named to the club's own Hall of Fame in 1989. In addition to Barber, former Buffalo Sabres center Gilbert Perreault was elected in the players' category. Former Boston and Toronto defenseman Fern Flaman was elected in the veterans' category.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero , whose deft handling of the salary cap and midseason hiring of coach Dan Bylsma in 2008-09 helped Pittsburgh win its first Stanley Cup in 17 years, has agreed to a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2015-16 season. Shero's current five-year contract, signed at the start of the 2006-07 season, would have expired at the end of this season. The Penguins have twice played for the Stanley Cup and won it once under Shero, an assistant general manager in the NHL for 14 seasons before being hired by the Penguins.

The Flyers called down the ghosts from their illustrious past last night. Fred Shero was there, and Rick MacLeish, and thanks to the magic of videotape, Kate Smith flickered to life, booming "God Bless America," proud and strong. Maybe it was all just a big coincidence that the current Flyers, skating in front of a crowd whipped to a fever pitch by the Flyers Hall of Fame inductions of Shero and MacLeish, went out and laid a 5-3 back-alley whipping on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Maybe.

DETROIT - The Flyers tried to protect a special segment in the franchise's history Sunday night. But despite the first two-goal game of Brayden Schenn's young career, it didn't happen. The Detroit Red Wings tied an NHL record with their 20th consecutive home win, 4-3, at the reverberating Joe Louis Arena. They equaled the record shared by the 1975-76 Flyers and 1929-30 Boston Bruins. Johan Franzen snapped a 3-3 tie just 52 seconds into the third period, taking a touch pass from Nicklas Lidstrom in front and tapping it past Sergei Bobrovsky.
