AND SO IT began, with Flyers coach Peter Laviolette dropping the ceremonial first F-bomb, saying, "We are not a conservative team. We are a let's-bleeping-giddy-up-and-go type of team. " HBO, "24/7. " And, we're off. If the Stanley Cup playoff tournament is the greatest NHL event - always has been, always will be - it is more raw and visceral than it is personal. It is this grand emotional spectacle, but there is still a distance from which it is observed. This television show, providing an all-access look at the Rangers and Flyers before they play in the Winter Classic, is different.

BUFFALO - When the Flyers face the Sidney Crosby -less Pittsburgh Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday, the game will have special meaning for hard-working forward Max Talbot . Talbot, 27, was drafted by the Penguins in 2002 and spent his career with Pittsburgh before coming to the Flyers as a free agent in the offseason. In 2009, he scored both goals as the Penguins won the Stanley Cup with a 2-1 victory over Detroit in Game 7, and he is remembered fondly by Pittsburgh's fans and players.

BUFFALO - Call it the Philly flu. Or, just call it the Penguins handling Sid the Kid with kid gloves. Either way, Sidney Crosby won't make his first pilgrimage of the season to South Philadelphia. He will miss the next two games as a precaution after being run over by teammate Chris Kunitz in an open-ice collision on Monday night. Crosby missed 68 straight games - from Jan. 5 to Nov. 21 - with postconcussion syndrome. The Flyers won't be complaining. Crosby has torched them for 62 points (26 goals, 36 assists)

Earlier in the day, two of Ilya Bryzgalov's former Phoenix teammates - defensemen Derek Morris and Adrian Aucoin - criticized him mercilessly in radio interviews, saying the goalie created animosity in the locker room. In the other locker room Thursday night, the Flyers praised Bryzgalov for keying the team's latest victory, a last-minute 2-1 triumph over the Coyotes at the Wells Fargo Center. Matt Read scored on a rebound with 18.6 seconds left to snap a 1-1 tie and enable the Flyers to run their points streak to eight games (6-0-2)

On a night when one of their top scorers, Jaromir Jagr, was injured, the Flyers relied on goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to stand tall against his ex-teammates. And, like in his previous five games, Bryzgalov did just that. So did Matt Read. Read scored on a rebound with 18.6 seconds left, lifting the Flyers to a thrilling 2-1 win over Phoenix at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. Read, a rookie winger, knocked in his sixth goal after Max Talbot had thrown a shot at goalie Mike Smith.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Despite allowing two shorthanded goals - one on a penalty shot - the Flyers continued their winning ways on Monday night. Claude Giroux scored two goals, and Chris Pronger had three assists as the Flyers outlasted the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-3, at the RBC Center. The Flyers have points in seven consecutive games (5-0-2), and they moved into a tie for first place with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Atlantic Division. Jaromir Jagr set up each of Giroux's goals.

MONTREAL - Sitting in his stall inside the Bell Centre, Jaromir Jagr was reminded yesterday that - theoretically - rookie Sean Couturier, who is nearly 21 years his junior, could be his son. Jagr, 39, could do little more than shake his head. "Nah, he couldn't," Jagr replied, sighing. "Because he really plays good defense, and I don't. " It was Couturier's back-to-back 96-point seasons in junior hockey that likely landed him as the No. 8 overall pick in June's draft.

Hotshot prospects Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier have received most of the media attention, but they aren't the only forwards trying to earn spots on the Flyers' roster. Others in the mix include promising Matt Read and veterans Adam Mair and Michael Nylander, among others. Nylander is trying to write one of the NHL's most inspiring stories, attempting to return to the NHL 11 months after spinal-fusion surgery. The 38-year-old center played just seven AHL games with Rochester last year before suffering a season-ending injury that required major surgery in October.

The Flyers will apparently have to restructure the five-year, $9 million contract they gave to free-agent forward Max Talbot on Friday. According to TSN, the Flyers violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement by reducing Talbot's salary by more than 50 percent between the third and fourth years - from $2.25 million to $1 million. Barry Hanrahan, the Flyers' assistant general manager, downplayed the matter and said no fine was forthcoming. "We haven't heard from the league," he said in a text message on Monday.
