WHEN TOM Wilson's hit on Brayden Schenn made it all the way to a phone hearing yesterday with the NHL's Department of Player Safety, many assumed it was a foregone conclusion that Wilson would be suspended. Wilson, 19, did not receive any supplementary discipline from Brendan Shanahan yesterday, nothing so much as a fine. For the Flyers, it ended up being a no-harm, no-foul situation, since Schenn remained in the lineup in last night's 5-4 win over the visiting Blue Jackets.

Defenseman Andrej Meszaros' health will play a major role in how the Flyers start the shortened season. A doctor on Monday cleared Meszaros for full activity, general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We'll see how he does once practices start," Holmgren said when asked if he expected Meszaros to start the season. Meszaros had surgery on his right Achilles tendon in the offseason. He has made major strides, but said he sometimes has problems pushing off. "It's a matter of time before I get my strength back," he said after an informal practice Monday in Voorhees.

ANAHEIM - Sitting in his stall deep inside the bowels of the Honda Center, Pat Maroon wiped the dripping sweat from his forehead, but the concerned look on his brow remained. To this day, more than 3 years after the fact, the Flyers' draft pick isn't quite sure how he ended up in Southern California - playing for the NHL's top team, alternating nightly on lines between Teemu Selanne and Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. His mind is still blown. The pain, the confusion and the details are all too clear.
