EDMONTON - Jeff Carter and Mike Richards are one again. After weeks of rumblings, the Blue Jackets finally declared the Carter Experiment in Columbus a failure on the 8-month anniversary of acquiring him. Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson sent Carter to Los Angeles, a team desperately in need of scoring, last night in exchange for defenseman Jack Johnson and a conditional first-round pick. The deal hinges upon both players passing a physical exam within 48 hours.

JEFF CARTER scored twice for the first time since the Stanley Cup clincher, helping the visiting Los Angeles Kings keep the slumping St. Louis Blues down with a 4-1 victory on Monday night. Brian Elliott has been in net the last four games of the Blues' five-game losing streak, during which they've allowed 26 goals. Elliott made 19 saves in a surprise start a day after Jaroslav Halak was activated from injured reserve, led the team onto the ice for the pregame skate and was listed on the game sheet.

FOR MOST OF US, it's a no-brainer. In a few days, either the New Jersey Devils will again be in a Stanley Cup final or the New York Rangers and their Darth Vader coach will be. Either way it doesn't really matter, because we'd pull for a team with Darth, Lord Voldemort, the real Bundy (not Chris Therien) and the real Lucipher before we'd pull for either team. But that still leads to some uneasiness for some Flyers fans, who for most of this season lived with a sense of relief that the trades of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter last June were smart and prudent moves, resulting in benefits both immediate and long term.

The Los Angeles Kings felt they were getting close to a championship and needed a veteran or two to put them over the top. The Flyers wanted to get younger and faster. And, so, the teams pulled the trigger on a blockbuster 2011 deal that sent captain Mike Richards to the Kings for Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and a second-round draft pick that the Flyers later dealt for Nick Grossmann. Ron Hextall, now the Flyers' general manager, was the Kings' assistant GM at the time, and he remembers vividly why the deal was attractive from Los Angeles' perspective.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - When Michael Raffl was bumped from the first to fourth line earlier this week, Flyers coach Craig Berube was careful to point out the move was not a demotion. "He's been a good player," Berube said then. "Wherever he goes, people seem to play good around him. It'll be a better fourth line with him on it. " Raffl, 25, has provided Berube with some unexpected flexibility in his first half season in the NHL. Originally considered a player with a top-end skill set, Raffl has demonstrated an ability to play the all-important "elevator" role - meaning he can move up and down the lineup with ease.

SEASONS CHANGE, the conversation does too, but the topic remains constant. Winter, spring, summer and into early fall, three of our four major professional sports franchises have positioned and decisioned themselves into hard-choice narratives about what to do next, and how to do it. That's the common thread: a gap between where they have put themselves and where they want to go. As anyone who follows professional sports in this town can attest, the...

THE SCARS have healed. They don't always, you know. Not in Philadelphia. Former Flyers captain Mike Richards returned with the Los Angeles Kings for the third time since the colossal trades in the summer of 2011 that subtracted him and his buddy, sniper Jeff Carter, from the roster. They, of course, won the Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2012 and 2014. Last night, Richards endured a smattering of obligatory boos when he was announced before the game, but he was not subjected to derision every shift.

NEW YORK - If the Los Angeles Kings win their second Stanley Cup in three seasons, a major assist could be given to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Kings acquired key players in late-season trades with Columbus in 2012 when they won their first Stanley Cup and again this season. They took a two-games-to-none lead into Monday's Game 3 of the finals against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. In 2012, Los Angeles acquired former Flyers center Jeff Carter from Columbus for Jack Johnson and a first-round draft choice.

Besides acquiring Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and Jake Voracek, there was another reason the Flyers made the stunning 2011 trades of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards: They wanted to make Claude Giroux the team's centerpiece. Given more ice time and more responsibility, Giroux has flourished in that role. Entering Monday's game against Richards, Carter and the visiting Los Angeles Kings, Giroux was fourth in the NHL with 74 points. He established a career high in points (93) and goals (28)

A BROKEN FOOT sustained while blocking a shot robbed Jeff Carter of what should have been his first game in Philadelphia as an opposing player. It was November 2011, about 5 months after the Flyers traded him to the Columbus Blue Jackets, and while he made the trip to his former home arena, Carter did not play. So last night, 33 months after he and Mike Richards were dealt on the same June day, Carter, in his third season with the Los Angeles Kings, made his return to the Wells Fargo Center ice. It marked the first time both he and Richards, who teamed up to help the Kings win the 2012 Stanley Cup, played together as visitors in Philadelphia.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

For the first time since they have been with the Los Angeles Kings, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards - forwards who used to be the faces of the Flyers - will play together as visitors at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday. "You see them off the ice in the summer, and it's almost like you want to get ready together for the season," Flyers winger Scott Hartnell said. Carter was sent to Columbus and Richards was traded to Los Angeles in bombshell 2011 deals. The Kings later acquired Carter, reuniting him with his close friend, Richards.
