The New York Rangers have added veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals one day after Marc Staal was struck in the right eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Flyers. Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

NEW YORK - I went to Brooklyn to cover a game and ended up covering a practice. I mean, we're talking about a practice.   The original assignment: the Flyers vs. the New York Islanders Saturday night at the Barclays Center. As tasks go, this did not rank up there with covering the America's Cup in Australia, which The Inquirer did once during the golden age of newspapers and United States yacht racing. Still, I was looking forward to seeing Brooklyn's relatively new arena for the first time.

Ryan Callahan scored the decisive shootout goal and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots to lead the New York Rangers to a 1-0 win over the host Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. Callahan scored in the fifth round of the shootout by driving in on Ryan Miller, leaning to his right, and snapping a shot into the open left side. Both goalies earned a shutout, with Miller stopping 29 shots through overtime. It was Lundqvist's sixth shutout of the season, and his third in his last five starts.

Sid the Kid is back. Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins star, plans to play against the New York Rangers on Thursday, his first game in more than three months following a second lengthy bout with concussion-like symptoms. On Tuesday, the 24-year-old center worked out with teammates and got bumped around enough that he feels prepared for the grind of the final month of the regular season and the playoffs. "I'm just trying to make sure I progress and remain symptom-free," he said.

The surging New York Rangers have been running away with the Eastern Conference and now they are picking up points even when they aren't playing up to the high standard they have set. "We're playing our third game in two-and-a-half days, and they're not all going to be pretty," Rangers coach John Tortorella said after the Rangers outlasted the Boston Bruins, 4-3, Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik both scored tiebreaking goals in the third period, and the Rangers held on after losing in overtime at Tampa Bay on Friday.

Jake Voracek slowly skated past the visitors' bench on Saturday afternoon while the New York Rangers emptied onto the ice. Voracek's shootout attempt had sailed wide of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, bouncing off of the boards and sending the Rangers into celebration after a 3-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers' valiant effort - which included a tying goal in the third period - was for naught after they were held scoreless in the shootout. Shayne Gostisbehere, Claude Giroux, and Voracek each missed their chances without barely testing Lundqvist.

The Flyers will try to extend their winning streak to five games - which would be a season's best - and continue their playoff push when they host the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon. Shayne Gostisbehere, who says he is at 100 percent, will return to the lineup after missing two games with a suspected groin injury. The speedy rookie defenseman will go back to quarterbacking the first power-play unit. "He's ready to go, for sure," coach Dave Hakstol said after Friday's practice in Voorhees.

This is the player the Flyers thought they were getting when they signed free-agent defenseman Evgeny Medvedev in the offseason. After being a healthy scratch in the previous six games, Medvedev returned to the lineup, played more aggressively, and helped the Flyers register consecutive wins over the weekend. Playing in his first NHL season, the 33-year-old Russian was arguably the Flyers' top defenseman in training camp, but he struggled in the first few weeks of the season and found himself benched.

Despite scoring the fewest goals in the NHL, the Flyers find themselves just four points out of a playoff spot and showing some positive signs - witness their first two-game winning streak in five weeks. But if they are going to stay in the playoff hunt, they might start by watching the video of Saturday's 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Specifically, they should view the last 40 minutes of their first regular-season victory in their last 11 games at the Garden.

NEW YORK - The Flyers, their injury list growing, registered their first two-game winning streak in five weeks, thanks to an impressive victory Saturday afternoon - at Madison Square Garden, of all places. Linemates Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier broke long scoring droughts as the Flyers defeated the New York Rangers, 3-0, and collected their first regular-season win at the Garden in their last 11 games, dating back to Feb. 20, 2011. "We were the hungrier team out there," goalie Steve Mason said after notching his first shutout of the season and first of his career against the Rangers.

NEW YORK - The turning point of the Flyers' 3-0 win over the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon may have been Luke Schenn's going after Dylan McIlrath after the Rangers' defenseman had leveled Nick Schultz. "It was huge," said winger Wayne Simmonds, who had a pair of goals, including a game-icing empty-netter. "We've been working on that a lot. I think in the beginning of the year, we weren't really sticking up for each other. " In the last week, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Claude Giroux got into fights after a teammate absorbed what they deemed an unnecessary hit. Schultz may have suffered a concussion on Saturday's hit midway through the first period.

It was an ordinary play in a big game, and maybe the combination of those two factors caused Malcolm Jenkins to disregard the telltale fogginess that began to settle over his consciousness. Cowboys running back Darren McFadden had broken free of one tackler in the second quarter of the Eagles' 33-27 victory Sunday in Dallas and was moving forward. Jenkins - the Eagles' starting strong safety, as intelligent and respected as any player in their locker room - moved forward, too, to confront him. Jenkins led with his right shoulder when he collided with McFadden, and still his head struck McFadden's chest with enough force that, once Jenkins got up from the ground after making the tackle, he felt something he had never felt before.

As the final buzzer sounded Tuesday, what was left of the Wells Fargo Center crowd serenaded the Flyers with loud boos as they skated to the locker room. It was well-deserved. Colorado 4, Flyers 0. The Flyers had talked about bringing momentum home from a nice win Saturday in Winnipeg that ended a 1-3-1 road trip, but apparently, they left it in customs. "We're embarrassed. They're probably embarrassed," Flyers winger Ryan White said when asked about the boos. The Avalanche, who began the night as the Western Conference's worst team, finished with a 40-25 shots advantage and skated circles around the Flyers.

The Flyers had an optional practice on Sunday but goalie Michal Neuvirth couldn't wait to be on the ice. Neuvirth had been out since he suffered an upper body injury Wednesday, late in the first period of a 5-4 overtime win at Boston. As Patrice Bergeron scored Boston's second goal, his stick accidentally hit Neuvirth in the mask. Neuvirth remained in the game but was replaced by Steve Mason to begin the second period. Neuvirth was able to practice on Friday. He was placed on injured reserve Saturday and the Flyers recalled Jason LaBarbera from the Phantoms to be Mason's backup in their 3-2 shootout win over the New York Rangers.
