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.

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.

BOSTON - The Flyers open their season Wednesday night by playing on the road against a Boston Bruins team that is favored to win the Eastern Conference. "It's a good measuring stick," defenseman Nick Grossmann said after practice Tuesday at TD Garden. The Bruins outscored the Flyers, 14-6, while sweeping all three games last season. "They've been one of the better teams in the league for a good five years now, and they present a good challenge for us," right winger Wayne Simmonds said.

Claude Giroux, playing in his first preseason game, made a solid return Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Sidelined by an undisclosed lower-body injury suffered 15 minutes into the first day of training camp, the Flyers captain made dazzling first-period passes and spent lots of time weaving around New York Rangers defenders. Giroux showed a bit of rust, but he still played 16 minutes, 53 seconds - the most among Flyers forwards - despite getting just five third-period shifts.

NEW YORK - Granted, the Flyers played their "B" team in a game that had no significance Monday night. Still, these dismal preseason starts - one year after the big boss, Ed Snider, said the Flyers had the worst camp in their history - have to be giving management agita . The Flyers fell into a 3-0 first-period hole Monday, were outshot by a 13-1 margin at one point, and lost to last spring's playoff rivals, the New York Rangers, 6-3, at...

New Flyers general manager Ron Hextall is gambling that a change of scenery will help defenseman Michael Del Zotto get back to the form he displayed when he was named to the NHL's all-rookie team with the New York Rangers in 2009-10. Back then, Del Zotto appeared ticketed for stardom. Fast-forward to last season. Del Zotto struggled on defense, and he was taken off the power-play unit. He was eventually dealt to Nashville and found himself a healthy scratch numerous times. When the free-agency period opened in July, Del Zotto, 24, drew little interest.

The Flyers have questions about their Kimmo Timonen-less defense; questions about Claude Giroux's health and who will replace left winger Scott Hartnell; questions about whether young players such as Sean Couturier, Luke Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto can take their games to another level. But for the first time in a while, there are few questions about the team's most important position. That's because goalie Steve Mason rediscovered his mojo last season, and even outplayed the great Henrik Lundqvist in the Flyers' seven-game playoff loss to the New York Rangers.

Kimmo Timonen hadn't yet told the Flyers that blood clots had snaked from his right leg to his lung, putting his career in the gravest jeopardy, and without even knowing it Ron Hextall already had explored a contingency plan. The Flyers' first-year general manager, Hextall had spent a good bit of time this summer trading phone calls with Michael Del Zotto's representatives at Newport Sports Management, gauging Del Zotto's interest in coming to Philadelphia. The Nashville Predators hadn't bothered to make a qualifying offer to Del Zotto after his subpar season with them, and even if Timonen hadn't faced his health crisis, Hextall thought it possible that Del Zotto would want a fresh start, and that, for an affordable salary-cap number and minimal risk, the Flyers might acquire a swift, still-young defenseman whose stock had fallen.

After the most frustrating season of his NHL career, defenseman Michael Del Zotto will bring a resolute attitude to the Flyers. "It was a bit of a humbling season," Del Zotto said Wednesday. Traded from the New York Rangers to Nashville in January, he was spurned in the free-agent market until the Flyers signed him to a one-year, $1.3 million deal on Tuesday. "This offseason is the most motivated I've ever been to get back and prove people wrong - and get back to where I was before.
