TAMPA, Fla. - Five weeks ago, defenseman Andrew MacDonald was languishing through yet another fruitless season on Long Island. In the blink of an eye, he went from a franchise that has made the playoffs just twice since the 2004-05 NHL lockout to shoring up a playoff berth on a team heading in the opposite direction. "He definitely adds an element that is very good," coach Craig Berube said. "He moves the puck well and he's got very good composure with it, too. When I look at our 'D,' we've got a puck-mover on every pair that gets the puck up ice. It's a nice combination to have.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Coaching professional hockey is a funny business. Last year's Jack Adams Award winner as coach of the year, Paul MacLean, is being blasted in Ottawa for the Senators' lost season. Meanwhile, in Buffalo, Ted Nolan was just given a 3-year contract extension for his work with the Sabres, who have only 14 regulation wins. Paul Maurice may not return to the bench - at his own discretion - after the best 32 games (16-12-5) the Jets have played since moving to Winnipeg in 2011.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo received a four-game suspension from the NHL on Monday and will miss the rest of the regular season. Rinaldo was suspended for an illegal check to the head of Buffalo defenseman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of a 5-2 victory Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. "While we view the four-game suspension to Zac as harsh, we respect the league's decision," general manager Paul Holmgren said. With Rinaldo out of the lineup, coach Craig Berube will reinsert Steve Downie or Tye McGinn in Florida on Tuesday.

As he surged forward to step into a slap shot Sunday night, Mark Streit struck the puck with such force that when it clanged off the left goalpost, the sequence sounded like a pair of reports from a firing range. Streit beat Buffalo Sabres goaltender Nathan Lieuwen cleanly, and the puck caromed to Matt Read for an easy goal, for the first of Streit's three assists in the Flyers' 5-2 victory, and for the sort of dynamic play that the Flyers sought from Streit when they signed him last offseason.

ST. LOUIS - Ken Hitchcock can still remember the first time he got a glimpse of Craig Berube. It was the summer of 1984. Berube arrived in Kamloops, British Columbia, for a camp before the start of the Western Hockey League season - Hitchcock's first year as a big-time junior coach. Berube, then 18, had just wrapped up a 104-penalty-minute campaign with the New Westminster Bruins of the same league. Some 30 years gone, the sight still haunts Hitchcock. "He got off this bus from Williams Lake with the toughest group of guys I've ever seen," Hitchcock said.

NEW YORK - While all the Flyers' focus was centered directly on the bright lights of Madison Square Garden last night, wheels were in motion farther upstate in New York to ensure the future of the franchise. In Adirondack, second-round pick Robert Hagg worked with player development coach Kjell Samuelsson in his second practice since arriving from Sweden. The Phantoms also were expecting the arrival yesterday of forward Kevin Goumas, the latest college free agent plucked from what Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren aptly described as "very fertile ground.

NEW YORK - Of all the Philadelphia-New York rivalries, this one between the Flyers and Rangers is the most colorful, the most contentious, and the one that appears headed for another crusty playoff chapter. "I would take that if somebody said that today, because then you know you're in the playoffs," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said before the two rivals continued jockeying for playoff position Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. "If somebody said,'You're going to play the Rangers,' I'd say that's great.

NEW YORK - If this was a preview of what is to come, the Flyers had better root for something else to happen. Which isn't to say that the Flyers can't beat the Rangers in a playoff series. It is simply to say that they might want somebody else out of the chute, somebody else like the Penguins. General manager Paul Holmgren said, "If somebody said, 'You're going to play the Rangers,' I'd say that's great," because that would mean the Flyers had made the playoffs. The certainty there would be comforting.

The Flyers agreed to terms with defenseman Robert Hagg, their second-round pick last June, to an entry-level contract Friday, and there are indications they are in the hunt for free-agent defenseman Christian Folin of UMass-Lowell. Hagg, 19, who was the youngest regular defenseman in the Sweden Hockey League, will report to the Phantoms on Tuesday, and his three-year entry-level deal will start next season. If Kimmo Timonen retires, Hagg could be in the discussion for a spot with the Flyers next season - though he likely will need a full year of AHL seasoning.

AFTER MAKING a few trips to Sweden to watch him, work with him and track his development, the Flyers couldn't wait to get their hands on second-round pick Robert Hagg. Just a few days after Hagg's season ended with MODO in the Swedish Hockey League, the Flyers announced yesterday that they had come to agreement on a 3-year, entry-level deal to bring the 19-year-old defenseman to North America. Hagg was selected 41st overall in 2013, behind first-round pick Samuel Morin. Hagg will arrive in the United States on Monday and report to the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms for the final 15 games of their season.
