Darren Helm scored twice, and Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and an assist in Detroit's 5-2 victory over visiting Nashville last night. Tomas Holmstrom and Henrik Zetterberg also scored, and Jimmy Howard made 20 saves to help the eighth-place Red Wings move within three points of seventh-place Nashville. Detroit was coming off a lethargic, 6-3 home loss to Vancouver on Wednesday night. "I thought we came out as a very determined team," Helm said.

If the Detroit Red Wings complained about the officiating in Sunday night's 4-3 loss at San Jose, they likely did so through former referee Mick McGeough, the NHL's series manager. The NHL has a manager at every playoff game who reports to Terry Gregson, the league's senior vice president and director of officiating. The manager also communicates with on-ice officials and each team's general manager and coach. Red Wings players bit their tongues when talking to the media after Sunday's loss, and coach Mike Babcock said: "I know they're frustrated, but they've got to stay out of the box. " The Wings were penalized 10 times in the game, including three straight in the third period.

The Blackhawks' roster is punctuated with young stars who have emerged both in the NHL and through their international play. But their 6-5 victory over the Flyers was paced Saturday by players who have seen a lot of bench as well as ice this postseason. Specifically, the Hawks were led by a 24-year-old forward from North Delta, British Columbia, who has gone through the playoffs with a heavy heart. Powering home two goals and one assist was Troy Brouwer, who missed the last four games of the regular season as his father has been battling a blood clot on his brain.

Chicago trails Detroit by four points in the Central Division with two games in hand.

CHICAGO - The Flyers defense is on the verge of getting a major upgrade. Recovering from a foot injury, top-pairing defenseman Braydon Coburn continued to make progress during Monday's practice at the United Center, and he could return Tuesday against the Chicago Blackhawks. "Today was a good day," Coburn said after an 80-minute practice in which he had several defensive partners. "I feel like there was some improvement, and I feel more comfortable out there, so I'm hoping I can have a good day tomorrow.

LURKING JUST three points behind the Rangers on the morning of Feb. 1, the idea that the Flyers would quietly bow out of pulling the trigger on a marquee addition at the NHL trade deadline would have sounded preposterous. Today, it not only seems like a more likely option, but it also sounds like the best option. And it has nothing to do with the standings. It has everything to do with the Flyers' three "measuring stick" games against the Rangers and Red Wings the last two weekends.

SUNRISE, Fla. - For the Flyers, there are lots of positives at the all-star break, which officially started with their hard-earned 3-2 shootout win over Florida on Tuesday night. Backup goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who improved to 11-4-1, stopped all three shots in the shootout at the BankAtlantic Center. Bobrovsky made 23 saves in the game and could not be faulted on either goal, and he gave the Flyers their first win in four shootouts this season. "I don't think we had our best effort tonight, and he made some key saves - and obviously three big stops in the shootout," said Brayden Schenn, who scored the Flyers' first goal midway through the first period.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Flyers stumbled to the regular-season finish line after they acquired winger Kris Versteeg from Toronto last February for first- and third-round 2011 draft picks. The deal was completed on Valentine's Day, but it was not a sweetheart of a trade for the Flyers. Maybe it was a coincidence, or maybe it altered the team's chemistry, but the Flyers went just 10-9-7 the rest of the way. They had been 36-14-5 before the trade. Now Versteeg is playing a leading role on the rejuvenated Florida Panthers.

Back in July, with the ice long melted and training camp still more than 2 months away, the prognosticators needed a way to calculate - what else? - where a team that had yet to take the ice would need help. The general consensus was that the Flyers, without Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, would be carried by their intact defense and struggle to score goals. The quick and dirty formula was this: Take the Flyers' 259 goals scored, subtract the departed goals from Carter (36)
