The stare. That was one of Dave Hakstol's trademarks when he was head coach at North Dakota for the last 11 years. And nobody wanted to be on the other end of that stare from a coach who was known for his fierce intensity. "It is intimidating," Flyers forward Chris VandeVelde said about his former college coach's stare during a telephone conference with reporters. VandeVelde, who has been with the Flyers the last two seasons, is now an unrestricted free agent. He played for Hakstol from 2007-10 at North Dakota.

Looking to solidify their goaltending, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. Bernier had been stuck behind Jonathan Quick in Los Angeles. The Maple Leafs, according to general manager Dave Nonis, were interested in upgrades at any position. "I think it's incumbent upon every team to look at what's available, and if there is an ability to improve, you look to do it," Nonis said last week after the GMs' meetings in Boston. The Kings had approached the Flyers about Bernier, but the sides never got close to a deal, according to a league source.

Former Flyers center Mike Richards, now with the Los Angeles Kings, commented Tuesday about a recent story that said he and former teammate Jeff Carter were traded because of excessive partying. A report written in the Philadelphia Daily News by gossip columnist Dan Gross said that in December 2009, head coach Peter Laviolette asked his players to commit to not drinking for a month, and each player was to write his number on a locker-room board as a pledge. According to two unnamed players, Richards' No. 18 and Carter's No. 17 were not on the board for the "Dry Island" experiment.

Most fans roll their eyes when former Flyers players or coaches are mentioned to fill the vacancy created by Craig Berube's firing. It's understandable that fans want someone fresh, someone without any preconceived notion of how the organization operates, to become the new coach. It has been 40 years since the Orange and Black won their last Stanley Cup, and many of those years have had ex-Flyers in the front office and/or behind the bench, so no one will argue that a fresh set of eyes might help.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall hasn't decided whether he wants Craig Berube back next season, but he claimed his indecision had nothing to do with which coaches may soon become available. "This is singular in itself. There's no waiting around to see if someone comes available or what else is out there," Hextall said Wednesday during his end-of-season news conference at the team's practice facility in Voorhees. "It's not part of the equation. " Hextall, whose team was eliminated from the playoffs March 29, said he was going to be "methodical" because he wanted to make the right choice.

The NHL held its all-star weekend last week in Columbus, a glorified two-day infomercial to promote its sport. Sadly, what was supposed to be the main event turned into a farce. Team Toews 17, Team Foligno 12. Oh, the fans in Columbus didn't seem to mind, but for the majority of us watching on TV, the so-called All-Star Game had less intensity, less magic, than any pond-hockey matchup in your neighborhood. Much less. Back in the day, the players took pride in the game, pride in showing that their conference was tops.

THE STATISTICS and analytics matched what Dean Lombardi's eyes were witnessing. He could see the drop-off in Mike Richards like everyone else, but didn't want to believe it. Managing a dynastic Stanley Cup enterprise isn't always black and white, after all. Not when people are involved. Lombardi had one final opportunity last June to buy out Richards' contract, but was swayed by the conversation he had with the player who made the Los Angeles Kings' 2012 Cup possible. He decided against it. It was a decision the general manager clearly regrets now, after placing the former Flyers captain on waivers yesterday.

LOS ANGELES - It turns out that all the Flyers needed to end their road miseries was to face the defending Stanley Cup champions. Oh, and to have Steve Mason put together one of his best performances of the season. Sparked by Mason's brilliant goaltending, the Flyers ended their nine-game road losing streak by defeating the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, Saturday at the Staples Center. "He's been unbelievable for a long time," winger Wayne Simmonds said after the Flyers won despite being outshot, 38-16.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Flyers coach Craig Berube's job is not in jeopardy, first-year general manager Ron Hextall said after watching his team practice Friday in suburban Los Angeles. "I have no plans to replace the coach," Hextall said. The Flyers (8-13-4) have lost 10 of their last 11 games, including their last six, and they will take a nine-game (0-7-2) road losing streak into Saturday afternoon's game against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. "When you have a team going like we are, it's all of us," Hextall said, spreading the blame.

STEVE MASON knew something was different at Wells Fargo Center the moment he stepped on the ice for pregame warmups in the Flyers' first exhibition game on Sept. 22. Everything was brighter - and not necessarily in a good way. If you've been to a Flyers home game this season - or even watched one on TV - you know what Mason means. The only difference is that you don't need to stop frozen black rubber discs flying at 100 mph. The Wells Fargo Center replaced the entire rink lighting system in the 18-year-old arena.

The NHL's rinks are smaller than those in Europe, and the players are faster and more talented. But Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, who has been thrust into the role of second-line center until Vinny Lecavalier returns from a foot injury, said the biggest difference is the NHL's hectic schedule, which isn't as regimented as when the Parisian played in Sweden for the previous eight seasons. The Flyers have played two sets of back-to-back games, and the schedule is more crowded than in Sweden, where teams play Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

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.
