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.
