WINNIPEG, Manitoba - The Flyers recalled left winger Harry Zolnierczyk from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms and put him into the lineup Tuesday night in Winnipeg, hoping he can awaken a sleepy offense. Zolnierczyk isn't exactly a prolific scorer, but he brings some much-needed quickness to a team that, entering Tuesday, had produced a total of nine goals in its six road losses. A year ago, Zolnierczyk collected six points in 37 games with the Flyers. He had nine goals and eight assists in 46 games with the Phantoms this season.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Time and Tye McGinn throughout a season, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette is faced with tough lineup decisions - constantly juggling role players and lines in search of a perfect fit. For Monday's matinee on Long Island, that surprisingly meant a seat in the press box for rookie McGinn, who has provided a serious spark for the Flyers in his first 13 NHL games. McGinn, 22, collected three goals, including the game-winner in Winnipeg a week ago, and two assists in the 13 games.

FLYERS GENERAL manager Paul Holmgren locked up two of his own on Wednesday, inking forwards Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill to 2-year contract extensions. Rinaldo, 22, was due to become a restricted free agent in July. Though he's on the shelf for the season with a high ankle sprain, Rinaldo was consistently reliable-and responsible-as a pest for opponents. Rinaldo led the NHL in hits per 60 minutes (14.64) with 143 checks in just 258:06. "I'm just really honored to be a part of the organization for another 2 years," Rinaldo said.

The Phantoms will play Albany, the New Jersey Devils' AHL affiliate, on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. It is open to the public and free. The Phantoms' lineup will include Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo, Eric Wellwood, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Harry Zolnierczyk and Erik Gustafsson, all of whom spent considerable time with the Flyers last season. The Oct. 11 NHL openers and the first few weeks of the season are expected to be canceled later this week.

PITTSBURGH - It was supposed to be a week for the Flyers to get recharged and have three grueling practices that would prime them for a playoff run. Instead, two of their regulars - forward Danny Briere and defenseman Nick Grossmann - were injured during workouts and missed Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh. The injuries were not revealed by general manager Paul Holmgren until Sunday. Holmgren would only say they both had upper-body injuries and were listed as day-to-day. Grossmann, whose 82 blocked shots placed him third in the NHL, took part in Sunday's morning skate.

NEW YORK - Maybe it's partly because of a reputation that started in the 1970s with the Broad Street Bullies. Maybe it's simply because they are too undisciplined. Whatever the reason, the Flyers are the NHL's most penalized team. But their penchant for infractions isn't as damaging as it seems because the Flyers also happen to be one of the NHL's best at drawing penalties. Entering Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers, the Flyers were averaging a league-high 17.2 penalty minutes per game.

Flyers winger Jake Voracek looked outside the locker room and pointed toward the league standings that hung on the opposite wall. The playoffs are still in reach, said Voracek, who noted that the Flyers were just five points out of the Eastern Conference's eighth and final postseason spot Thursday. That's a rather positive outlook for a Flyers team that has dropped five of its last seven games. Three of the losses came to division opponents. In the midst of a five-day break before they face the Penguins Sunday in Pittsburgh, the Flyers displayed a new look at Thursday's two-hour practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

Simon Gagne isn't the only Flyers winger who is back. So is Scott Hartnell. Oh, Hartnell has played three games since returning from a broken left foot, but it wasn't until Wednesday that he started to assert himself, keying the Flyers' 4-1 win over Washington. Hartnell was more physical and quicker than in any of his other games since he returned, and he picked up a pair of primary assists - one in which he won a puck battle in front and, from his knees, sent a pass to Claude Giroux for an easy goal.

For the 0-3 Flyers, the news keeps getting worse. They lost two forwards from their already-depleted lineup Wednesday as Brayden Schenn was suspended for a game and the team announced that Scott Hartnell was out "indefinitely" because of an injured left foot. Both will miss Thursday's game against the visiting New York Rangers. The Flyers were already missing injured forwards Danny Briere and Zac Rinaldo. Schenn was suspended by the NHL for a second-period hit on New Jersey's Anton Volchenkov in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Devils.

After taking a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, Simon Gagne missed the Flyers' morning skate Wednesday because he needed to catch up on sleep. Now he hopes to wake up the Flyers' offense. He got off to a good start, scoring a power-play goal, his first tally of the season, in the Flyers' 4-1 win over Washington. Acquired Tuesday from the Kings for a conditional fourth-round pick, the veteran winger began the night on a line with Sean Couturier and Max Talbot. Gagne received a rousing ovation, and he waved to the home crowd as a video of his career was shown on the scoreboard during a first-period stoppage.

TORONTO - Centers Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier have suffered through sophomore slumps, but they played major roles Thursday as the resilient Flyers outlasted the Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-3, at the Air Canada Centre and increased their season-best winning streak to four games. "We're both trying to step up," Schenn said after the Flyers climbed to within two points of the eighth-place Rangers in the Eastern Conference. "We're getting the opportunity, playing on the power play and playing with good players.

PAUL HOLMGREN is not very fond of the NHL's trade deadline. Last year, on Feb. 27, hockey's annual frenzy came and went without the Flyers actively participating. The Flyers general manager made his moves in the weeks prior, adding Nick Grossmann and Pavel Kubina. The year before last, on Feb. 28, 2011, the Flyers barely snuck a trade under the 3 o'clock wire with Tom Sestito joining the crew from Columbus. For as much as there is a perception of the Flyers making franchise-altering trades at the deadline, there have only been two since 2000: Dan Carcillo for Scottie Upshall in 2009 and nearly an entire draft's worth of picks in 2002 for playoff rental Adam Oates.

For the Flyers, Operation Playoff Push needs to go into overdrive. They have 13 games to climb over five teams in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. Physical left winger Jay Rosehill, acquired from Anaheim on Monday for speedy winger Harry Zolnierczyk, figures to play in some of those games, giving the Flyers their first heavyweight enforcer in nearly two months. "He's a player you hate to play against," captain Claude Giroux said after the Flyers practiced in Voorhees on Tuesday, preparing for Wednesday's game against visiting Montreal.

Max Talbot's injury and the team's mini-surge apparently have changed the Flyers' plans: They now could be a buyer as Wednesday's 3 p.m. trade deadline approaches. They made a minor move Monday, acquiring enforcer Jay Rosehill from Anaheim for speedy winger Harry Zolnierczyk. Rosehill, a left winger, is expected to be at the Flyers' practice Tuesday in Voorhees. The Flyers announced that Talbot suffered a broken left leg in Sunday's wild 5-4 overtime win over Washington and that he would be sidelined indefinitely.

PITTSBURGH - The last time the Flyers took the ice at Consol Energy Center, Matt Read skated to the left of Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek to form one of the hottest lines in hockey. Read helped ignite a spark in Giroux that had been missing for a good portion of the season. The trio combined for 17 points in their four games together, including a 10-point outburst on Long Island on Feb. 18. The only problem was that Read didn't make it out of his Feb. 20 appearance here healthy.

PITTSBURGH - During each of the previous two seasons, the Flyers ended long winning streaks by the Pittsburgh Penguins. On Sunday night, however, they couldn't complete the trifecta. Tyler Kennedy, who had missed the previous game because of an illness, scored on a tracer from the left circle with 2 minutes, 27 seconds remaining in overtime, lifting the Penguins to their 12th consecutive victory, a 2-1 win over the Flyers at Consol Energy Center. Kennedy fired his shot high and to the short side as goalie Ilya Bryzgalov appeared to be screened.

NEW YORK - Mike Knuble has played 1,058 games in the NHL. Even after finding himself on the wrong side of Peter Laviolette's lineup card for the Flyers' previous two games, Knuble didn't see any reason to change what worked in his first 1,057 before Tuesday night's contest at Madison Square Garden. No professional athlete wants to be a healthy scratch - but especially not a 40-year-old veteran trying to make one more go of it at the game's highest level. "I'm not going to beat myself up. I am what I am," Knuble said, humbly.
