On first impressions, defensemen Chris Pronger and Matt Carle look as if they will form a high-quality duo this season. They seemed comfortable with each other and provided one of the Flyers' few highlights as they opened the exhibition season with a listless 3-1 loss in Detroit on Wednesday. Because they were frequently playing on the penalty kill, each player logged more than 26 minutes - a stunningly high total for the preseason opener - and neither was in the lineup last night when the Flyers lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-0, here at the John Labatt Centre.

The Flyers signed bruising defenseman Nick Grossmann to a multiyear deal on Friday, a move that could affect whether they re-sign Matt Carle in the offseason. Carle can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. Sources said the deal was for four years and worth $14 million. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Grossmann, who had been a prospective free agent, has missed the last two games with a knee injury but is expected to return to the lineup at the start of the playoffs next week.

PITTSBURGH - At about 7:42 last night, on the other side of Pennsylvania, a small restaurant filled with a group of Flyers dining out before tonight's season opener erupted when catcher Carlos Ruiz' throw hit first baseman Ryan Howard's glove to complete Roy Halladay's historic no-hitter. "There was a group of us at dinner, and we had it on," defenseman Matt Carle said. "It was pretty sweet. I watched the first part of the game at the hotel and finished it here at dinner. " Forward Scott Hartnell was amped about Halladay's first postseason start even before the Flyers left for Pittsburgh.

Even when he was playing with the Flyers, Steve Downie was not a player you could get to say a lot. But if the look he was wearing told anything about how he likes playing in Tampa Bay, it's all good. Downie seemed happy and upbeat as he walked into the Wachovia Center for the first time since being sent to Tampa Bay with Steve Eminger in exchange for Matt Carle on Nov. 7. It didn't take Downie long, however, to show why he can be such a liability. On his first shift of the game, Downie took Kimmo Timonen's feet out from under him, drew a penalty and the immediate ire of his former teammates.

As the Flyers prepare to host the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final on Sunday, here is how the teams fared against each other during the regular season, during which they split four games, 2-2 (Home team in CAPS): Dec. 7, MONTREAL 2, Flyers 1: In coach Peter Laviolette's second game since replacing John Stevens, the Flyers equaled a dubious franchise record with just 13 shots on goal. Game-winning goal: Michael Cammalleri. Winning goalie: Carey Price.

Score: Sabres 1, Flyers 0 How it happened: Patrick Kaleta scored the goal and Ryan Miller stopped 35 Flyers' shots. Key play: The goal came when Kaleta maneuvered himself between Flyers defensemen Danny Syvret and Matt Carle to slam home a rebound past Sergei Bobrovsky. Heroes: Miller would have been our first star. James van Riemsdyk, who was the official first star, was the best player on the ice for the Flyers. Goats: Hard to pick one player, so let's target the Flyers power-play unit, which failed to score in five chances and 9 minutes, 22 seconds with the advantage.

The Flyers, not quite defenseless but seemingly moving toward that distinction, will be without yet another blue-liner when the NHL season is scheduled to begin in October. General manager Paul Holmgren confirmed Monday that the team's already shallow pool of defensemen will be minus Andreas Lilja, who underwent surgery in his native Sweden late last month to correct a degenerative condition in his left hip. Lilja, 37, won't return until late October or early November at the earliest, according to Holmgren.

NEWARK, N.J. - As the blood poured from his mouth, Ian Laperriere wasn't thinking about the seven teeth he'd just lost, the 100 or so stitches it would require to close the wound, or the prospect of having dinner through a straw for a while. Instead, the first thought that crossed his mind was: How could he have been so stupid to block a slapshot with his face. "I was mad at myself because it was my fault," the veteran winger said Thursday after the Flyers went through a brisk practice for Friday night's Game 2 of their first-round series against New Jersey at the Prudential Center.

The Flyers' puzzling road adventures continue Sunday night in Pittsburgh, one of the few areas outside of South Philly where they have managed to win this year. For the Flyers, a team fighting for its playoff lives, the good news is this: After Sunday, they play five straight games at the Wells Fargo Center. The bad news: Including the one in Pittsburgh, they have eight more games on the road, where they are an unthinkable 4-12. That's the most road losses in the NHL. And that follows a season in which they went 25-13-3 on the road.

General manager Paul Holmgren said he was not considering a coaching change, and he criticized the Flyers' "compete" level during an impromptu news conference at the team's practice facility in Voorhees on Thursday. At first, Holmgren gave coach Peter Laviolette a seemingly lukewarm endorsement. Asked if Laviolette was on the hot seat, Holmgren said, "I don't think so. " Holmgren later added: "I haven't even thought about" making a coaching change, and he was "not at the point" of consummating a major trade.

HE HAS BEEN in Philadelphia longer than Kimmo Timonen. Longer than Danny Briere, too, and Scott Hartnell. Take it further, Braydon Coburn's tenure here exceeds Doc Halladay's and Cliff Lee's and Shady McCoy's and, well, pretty much every pro athlete in this town save the thirtysomethings who still make up the core of the Phillies. He is in his seventh season as a Philadelphia Flyer, Coburn is, and it seems finally, that we may be warming to him. Still only 27 years old, he is no longer the defenseman fans dread seeing out there in a big moment, is no longer the defenseman that he himself described the other day as "a skate-as-fast-as-I-can-all-over-the-place kind of cowboy.

BARRED FROM speaking to his players during the lockout, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had a twinge of nerves every time he read an update about Kimmo Timonen in the newspaper. Not only was Timonen struggling for motivation to stay in shape during the 113-day ordeal, but he was also becoming accustomed to being an everyday dad. "I was reading his quotes throughout the lockout," Holmgren said. "When he was liking this, being able to watch his kids play, I was a little nervous about that.

WHEN THE PUCK last dropped on a shortened season, on Jan. 21, 1995, at the Spectrum against the Quebec Nordiques, the 103-day NHL lockout ended up serving the Flyers well. During that 48-game season, the Flyers (28-16-4) won the Atlantic Division by a healthy eight-point margin over New Jersey and Washington. They advanced to the Eastern Conference finals (after not making the playoffs for five straight seasons) before bowing out to the Devils, who eventually swept Detroit for the Stanley Cup. There are a lot of comparisons that could be drawn from that 1995 team, given that we're likely to see a similar format and number of scheduled games, and that both versions of the Flyers featured MVP-caliber players ready for blastoff in Eric Lindros and Claude Giroux.

Unless both sides bypass a chance to salvage a 48-game NHL season - and nearly $2 billion in revenue - the almost-four-month lockout will finally end later this week. The lockout has had countless negatives, but for the Flyers, there is a positive: Andrej Meszaros, one of their best defensemen, is almost ready to start playing. And this: Veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who had back surgery in the summer, seems close to 100 percent. Thanks, lockout. In addition, the work stoppage has helped Andreas Lilja, a depth defenseman who will battle for a third-pairing spot, recover from hip surgery.

Three trips to the playoffs in three seasons have earned Peter Laviolette a contract extension, the Flyers announced Wednesday. Laviolette agreed to a deal that will keep him head coach here for another two seasons after his current contract expires at the completion of the coming season. The announcement is far from a surprise. "Peter and I have a strong relationship," general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We talked about it briefly at the end of the year, and we had our own business to work through with the draft July 1, and all the other stuff that goes on. There was never a question that this wasn't going to get done.

AT LONG LAST, U.S. Olympic teammates Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are together, after signing equal 13-year, $98 million deals in Minnesota within an hour of each other on the Fourth of July. Cashing a fat, $12 million bonus check for signing on the dotted line just seems so ... American. Another American, Matt Carle, added his own fireworks on Wednesday night by signing a mammoth 6-year, $33 million deal to return to Tampa Bay as the first dominoes began to fall. In Minnesota, both Parise and Suter left behind the only teams they have ever known in New Jersey and Nashville.
