Seeking help for their defense, the Flyers agreed to terms Tuesday with veteran free agent Michael Del Zotto on a one-year deal.

IT TURNS out an arbitration hearing won't be necessary after all when it comes to Michael Del Zotto and the Flyers. Just five days before the 25-year-old defenseman was scheduled to have his salary-arbitration hearing, the two parties agreed on a reported two-year contract worth $7.75 million, $3.875 million against the cap per year. This leaves the Flyers with around $360,000 in cap space, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Signing Del Zotto, a veteran of six NHL seasons, was always on offseason priority for Hextall.

SAN JOSE, Calif. _ Mark Streit is expected to return to the Flyers' lineup Wednesday in San Jose, but another defenseman, Michael Del Zotto, seems iffy after he had to leave Monday practice early. Del Zotto, who sat out an inartistic 4-2 loss Sunday in Anaheim because of an undisclosed upper-body injury, is still listed as day-to-day. Injured in the Flyers' 4-3 win over St. Louis on Dec. 21, Del Zotto left the ice during his second drill Monday after taking a pass "that kind of gave me a lot of discomfort and pain.

The previous day, coach Dave Hakstol vehemently denied that Mason was injured. A "healthy" Mason did not practice Monday or Tuesday.

The Rick Nash saga seems to be going down to the wire. The Columbus Blue Jackets' front office Sunday mulled over offers for the elite power winger, who still could be dealt by Monday's 3 p.m. deadline. There also is the strong possibility that the Blue Jackets will hold out in the hope of getting better offers at the June entry draft. Columbus was said to be adamant about obtaining players who the Rangers deemed untouchable: center Derek Stepan or No. 1 prospect Chris Kreider, a power forward at Boston College, as well as defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto.

Here are some of the ramifications of the Flyers' trades that sent Braydon Coburn to Tampa Bay and Kimmo Timonen to Chicago: The Flyers now have five picks in the first three rounds of the deep June draft: two in the first round, one in the second, and three in the third. They also have two selections in the fourth round, and one in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. Defenseman Radko Gudas, acquired from Tampa Bay as part of the Coburn trade, was teammates with Jake Voracek on the Czech Republic Olympic team last year.

The Flyers have hired a coach with NHL experience to guide the American Hockey League's Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Call it the Tortorella Tirade. The Rangers came out flat in the opening minute against the New Jersey Devils, and coach John Tortorella had seen more than enough. He burned his lone timeout 1:24 in and chewed out his club. The message got through, and visiting New York gutted out a 3-2 victory last night. "We didn't come out ready," captain Chris Drury said. "It was pretty obvious at the start of the game and he let us know. From that point on I thought we responded very well.

Ryan Callahan and Michael Del Zotto each had a goal and an assist, and the visiting New York Rangers rebounded from a 2-0 deficit and moved to the top of the NHL standings with a 4-2 victory over the fading Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night. Brian Boyle and Derek Stepan also scored, and Marian Gaborik added a pair of assists for the Rangers (49-21-7), who lead Pittsburgh by five points in the Eastern Conference. New York is tied with Western Conference-leading St. Louis with 105 points, but the Rangers have the edge because of one more non-shootout victory.

The Flyers did not have much of an update on injured defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere on Friday other than to say he would not play Saturday against the visiting New York Islanders. The team will update his condition Saturday, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Gostisbehere is listed as having a lower body injury. He left early in the second period of a 4-3 overtime win at Minnesota on Thursday. He was tripped by Mikko Koivu in the first period and his right knee appeared to collide with Koivu's knee.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - After a West Coast trip that produced three mostly listless losses, the Flyers have regained their mojo. Thanks to defenseman Michael Del Zotto's dramatic goal, they recorded their second straight win Thursday, defeating the Minnesota Wild, 4-3, in overtime at the Excel Energy Center. Del Zotto's second goal of the game won it with 37 seconds left in overtime, enabling the Flyers to snap a five-game road losing streak. But the victory may have been costly.

LOS ANGELES - The Flyers went 0-for-California. Concluding a three-game West Coast trip Saturday, they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Los Angeles Kings before a sellout crowd at the Staples Center. It marked the first time since 2003-04 that the Flyers failed to win on a West Coast trip. The Flyers had been 5-0-1 in L.A. since a loss in 2003-04. "We can't expect to play 20 minutes and expect to win a hockey game," defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. The Flyers dominated the third period, outshooting the Kings by 16-8 and getting to within 2-1 on Brayden Schenn's power-play goal with 12 minutes, 10 seconds left.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - By putting Sam Gagner on waivers Tuesday to make room for Mark Streit, the Flyers also cleared enough salary-cap space to keep impressive rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere on the roster. Now that he knows he is staying, Gostisbehere said he won't rest on his laurels. He has 14 points in 19 games. "It's no need to sit back," he said after practice Tuesday at the SAP Center. ". . . You can't get complacent. It doesn't mean anything. A lot of things could still change.

DALLAS - For the first time this season, the same Flyers goalie started on consecutive nights. That goalie was Michal Neuvirth, who faced high-scoring Dallas on Friday after recording a 4-2 win in St. Louis the previous night. Neuvirth, the supposed backup, has been sharper than Steve Mason for most of the season, especially in the recent games. "I don't want to compare, I guess, but Neuvy has been sharp," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game Hakstol said it's important to reward a goalie when he is playing well.

For the first time this season, a huge crowd of reporters gathered around Radko Gudas' locker Thursday, waiting for the Flyers' rugged defenseman to leave the ice after practice. "You guys waiting for Ogie Ogilthorpe?" cracked Flyers forward Ryan White. Ogilthorpe was a goon in the iconic 1970 movie Slapshot . Gudas, 25, drew a crowd because the NHL suspended him for, well, a goon-like play, a hit to the head of Ottawa's Mika Zibanejad during Tuesday's third period. "It's a fast game," Gudas said.
