IT'S HAPPENED before and it will happen again, and if Mike Knuble had his druthers it will happen more often in the years to come. But it's still one of the more entertaining facets of hockey, watching two players side to side on a bench, one born somewhere around the time of the other's first foray into the professional game. So the other night, as the camera zeroed in on a conversation between Scott Laughton and Mike Knuble on the bench in Florida, it was natural to wonder: What on earth could they be talking about?

WASHINGTON - For Flyers right winger Mike Knuble, the homecoming tour is in full swing. On Friday night, it was here at the Verizon Center, where he played the last three seasons for Washington. "It really snuck up on me, because I have a million other things to deal with and to adjust to after coming here, and now we're back here," said Knuble, 40, before the Flyers faced the Capitals. "It came on quick. . . . It's a building I feel comfortable playing in, and it'll be fun to play against some old friends.

The Flyers' three-week, 11-game road trip ends tonight in the Motor City. Coincidentally, their win-easy approach also has come to an end. Ken Hitchcock's club struggled mightily to earn two points last night at the United Center against a Blackhawk Down group that is already out of the playoff hunt. Trent Yawney's Chicago Blackhawks outplayed the Flyers for large portions of the game before falling, 5-2. The difficult victory left the Flyers 8-1-1 on the trip. They stand atop the NHL with 62 points.

There are defining moments during a losing streak when a team's fortunes hang in the balance. For the Flyers, who were shut out, 1-0, by the Montreal Canadiens last night at the Bell Centre, that moment arrived near the four-minute mark of the final period. For nearly two minutes, the Flyers held a two-man power-play advantage. During that span, the Flyers peppered Canadiens goalie Carey Price with eight quality shots - and could not score. Price's brilliance extended the Flyers' losing skid to six games, matching a similar season-high streak from Dec. 13 to 22. "We did everything we could - great puck movement, great control of the puck - and Mike [Richards]

Florida goalie Jamie McLennan doesn't need SportsCenter to see replays of Peter Forsberg, Simon Gagne and Mike Knuble buzzing around him. After Knuble capped a nightmarish game for McLennan last night - beating him with a circle slapshot with 3.2 seconds left in regulation for a 5-4 Flyers victory - McLennan was sure to rerun the memory himself for a while. Then again, Knuble would, too. "That's one of the timeliest goals of my NHL career," said Knuble. He scored twice last night, and the way his line has been going since Day 1, there is a promise of many more to come.

Flyers forward Mike Knuble will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder. "I had the same procedure done three years ago on my left" shoulder, Knuble said yesterday. "I don't think this tear is as severe as the one I had in my left shoulder. "This was a case of me rehabbing it and if that didn't work, it would be the beginning of June by the time I would have had the surgery. That would be cutting into my training time, and it would be getting too close to the start of the season.

You don't spend three NHL seasons skating on the same line without developing a certain fondness for your linemates, even after one has departed. Mike Knuble, Joe Thornton and Glen Murray formed that bond with the Boston Bruins. Knuble signed with the Flyers as a free agent in July 2004 before the lockout, breaking up an extraordinary unit that produced 88 goals and 211 points in 2003-04. Tonight, the Bruins will come to town, with Sergei Samsonov having replaced Knuble on the top line with Thornton and Murray.

The Flyers yesterday signed right wings Mike Knuble and Turner Stevenson to three-year contracts, general manager Bob Clarke announced. Financial terms were not disclosed. Knuble, 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, and Stevenson, 6-3, 220 pounds, were Group III unrestricted free agents. "Both are huge players, skate well and play physical," Clarke said. "They bring real good size to our forward crew. " Knuble, 31, recorded 21 goals, 25 assists and 32 penalty minutes in 82 regular-season games for the Boston Bruins last season.

MIKE KNUBLE spent parts of five seasons with the Bruins. Flyers coach Peter Laviolette grew up in Massachusetts and his sister was a spectator at the Boston Marathon last Monday. The horrifying events of last week hit home with every member of the Flyers - be they Canadian, Czech or Swede. "I've been up and down [Boylston] street a hundred times," said Knuble, the Flyers' lone American Olympian. "You see the fronts of the restaurants - I know exactly where that's at. I've been to the race before.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Last week was a blur for Flyers forward Adam Hall. On Tuesday, he found out he was traded from Carolina back to Tampa Bay, the team with which he started the season. On Wednesday, the day of the NHL's trade deadline, Hall was notified to halt his trek to the Lightning because he had been claimed off waivers by the Flyers. On Thursday, he was already making his debut with the Flyers in Toronto, while his wife and 1-year-old son were left to pick up the pieces in North Carolina.

TAMPA, Fla. - Kimmo Timonen was an afterthought. The Los Angeles Kings took a flier on him with the 250th overall pick in the 10th round of the 1993 draft - so late that the NHL doesn't even draft past seven rounds anymore because so few picks actually panned out. The Kings had little interest in Timonen, eventually trading his rights to Nashville. When Timonen finally did land in North America 5 years after being drafted, he was jettisoned to the minors in Milwaukee. One NHL game seemed like the longest of longshots.

NEW YORK - Mike Knuble has played 1,058 games in the NHL. Even after finding himself on the wrong side of Peter Laviolette's lineup card for the Flyers' previous two games, Knuble didn't see any reason to change what worked in his first 1,057 before Tuesday night's contest at Madison Square Garden. No professional athlete wants to be a healthy scratch - but especially not a 40-year-old veteran trying to make one more go of it at the game's highest level. "I'm not going to beat myself up. I am what I am," Knuble said, humbly.

The Flyers' floundering power-play units have contributed to their awful start, but on Saturday night they were in the spotlight for another reason. They couldn't miss. The Flyers scored on all three of their power-play chances - getting goals from Kurtis Foster, Danny Briere, and Claude Giroux - as they ended a three-game losing streak by defeating the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-3, at the Wells Fargo Center. "Tonight was an example of everybody chipping in, everybody playing together," said Giroux, who had a goal and an assist, and won 56 percent of his faceoffs.

SCOTT HARTNELL sat out Thursday night with an injury for the first time since joining the Flyers six seasons ago. It was just the fourth game he has missed overall - two due to suspension and one due to illness. Turns out, there's a good reason: Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren revealed Hartnell fractured a left metatarsal bone in his foot, which may end up needing surgery. He suffered the injury with 6:53 to play in Tuesday's loss to New Jersey. The Flyers' leading goal scorer from last season could miss anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks, depending on a possible surgery.
