RALEIGH, N.C. - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was outspoken last week, condemning the Flyers and Ray Emery's actions against the Capitals. He said it's not the way the game is played anymore. Yesterday, NHL vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan took it one step further. "I hate what Ray Emery did," Shanahan told Rogers Sportsnet's Hockey Central at Noon show. "I don't like it. I wouldn't like it if I were a teammate of his, I wouldn't like if it I were an opponent of his. " Yet, Shanahan admitted that he could not give Emery a suspension for skating down the ice and raining blows on the head of unwilling combatant Braden Holtby, Washington's goaltender, during a melee between the teams.

Shortly after signing a one-year, free-agent deal with the Flyers on Friday, Ray Emery said he considered the goaltending duo with Steve Mason to be more of a "tandem relationship" instead of a competition. Emery compared it with his situation last season with Corey Crawford in Chicago. "With me and Corey, it was more about the team success, and we both kind of helped each other get better," he said. "As far as I know, that's the best way to treat a goaltending relationship. I'm excited to work with [Mason]

Denis Hamel scored twice to lead the Binghamton Senators to a 4-2 victory over the Phantoms in the AHL last night. The Senators drew within six points of the first-place Phantoms in the AHL East, to the dismay of the 9,143 fans at the Wachovia Spectrum. Ray Emery picked up the win by stopping 29 of 31 shots, while Neil Little made 19 saves in the loss. Mark Murphy recorded a goal and an assist for the Phantoms, who had won their last two games. "I am not unhappy with the effort of our hockey team," said Phantoms head coach John Stevens.

Flyers goalie Ray Emery was excused from practice Monday for a good reason: He was invited to the White House. Emery went 17-1 last season with Chicago, and he and his former teammates were honored at the White House for winning the Stanley Cup. President Obama welcomed his hometown Blackhawks. "This team is a great example of what Chicago is all about," Obama said. Emery called the White House trip "pretty cool. It was definitely exciting. " He said he got a chance to shake Obama's hand, and called him an inspirational figure for being the first African American president.

NEWARK, N.J. - Jeff Carter received a phone call yesterday very similar to the one teammates Mike Richards and Chris Pronger received from Team Canada on Dec. 30. He was told to pack his bags and fly to Vancouver on Sunday, after the Flyers finish their pre-Olympic schedule in Montreal on Saturday night. The only difference is that Carter doesn't know if he will be needed just yet. Carter was phoned by Team Canada general manager Steve Yzerman to notify him that he will be added to the roster if Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf is unable to play.

Patrick Sharp scored the Phantoms' only goal in regulation, then tallied the game-winning shoot-out goal as the team extended its club-record winning streak to 11 straight with a 2-1 victory over the Binghamton Senators yesterday. The Phantoms' third annual School Day Game drew a crowd of 7,032 at the Wachovia Spectrum. Antero Niittymaki made 20 saves over the first three periods and overtime before stopping all six Binghamton penalty-shot attempts during the shoot-out. The Phantoms also came up empty in their first five attempts against Senators goaltender Ray Emery, but Sharp made good on the team's sixth try with a wrist shot into the top right corner of the net. The Phantoms now own the AHL's first 11-game win streak since the Providence Bruins accomplished the feat during the 1998-99 season.

Rookie defenseman James Laux scored 23 seconds into overtime to lift the Phantoms to a 1-0 victory over the Binghamton Senators last night and into the Calder Cup playoffs. The win put the Phantoms (41-24-6-1) in first place in the Eastern Conference standings with eight games remaining. Kirby Law started the decisive play by coming up with a loose puck and firing a shot that went wide of the Binghamton net. John Slaney was able to kick the puck back to Laux, who blasted a slap shot through traffic and past Senators goaltender Ray Emery.

Steve Mason started for the 12th time in the last 13 games Wednesday, but the Flyers goalie said fatigue is not a factor. Instead, he said he feels energized by the team's predicament. "It would be a lot more difficult if we weren't in a playoff race," he said before making his seventh straight start as the Flyers faced powerful Washington. "When you're playing for something that's meaningful, it makes it a lot easier. It's that time of year, and it's fun to be a part of when you're in the playoff picture.

The Flyers are giving free-agent Ray Emery a tryout and may sign him as their No. 3 goalie, general manager Ron Hextall said in a conference call Tuesday night. Emery, 33, played two stints with the Flyers, and he will report to their morning skate Wednesday. He struggled in 31 games with the team last season, compiling a 3.06 goals-against average and .894 save percentage. The move gives the team insurance in case Steve Mason or rookie Anthony Stolarz is injured, Hextall said. Emery would not be eligible for the postseason if the Flyers earned a playoff berth.

EDMONTON, Alberta _ The Flyers, playing without ill goalie Steve Mason, hit rock-bottom on Saturday night at Rexall Place. They lost to the awful Oilers in overtime, 5-4, and dropped their ninth straight road game, equaling their second-longest streak since they lost 10 in a row in 1991-92 (0-8-2). The Flyers, who also lost nine consecutive road games earlier in the season, fell to 0-6-3 in their last nine games against teams that were not in a playoff spot when they met. Stop the season, the Flyers want to get off. Ryan-Nugent Hopkins scored on a juicy rebound allowed by Ray Emery with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left in overtime.

EDMONTON, Alberta - The Flyers are broken, and it would be surprising if the organization doesn't hire another coach to try to put them back together. Coach Craig Berube is a good hockey man with strong principles, but he has lost this flawed team. Many of the players are upset with Berube's singling out goalie Steve Mason three times in the team's eighth consecutive road loss, a 4-1 defeat in Calgary on Thursday. Berube has not seen eye-to-eye with Mason recently, and he seemingly took it out on his goalie Thursday by pulling him late in the second period after Mason allowed the second goal on a shot he still hasn't seen.

VANCOUVER - On the day of the ninth start in a row, Craig Berube said: "Let there be rest. " And so, Steve Mason enjoyed a rare night off on Sunday in Ottawa. Ray Emery was tremendous in his stead, stopping all but one Senators advance. It was Emery's first appearance in nearly a month - since Feb. 19 - a span that included an injury, a capable run from Rob Zepp, and Mason's return from knee surgery. All of which begs the question: What exactly will the Flyers do for a backup goaltender next season?

AFTER THE FLYERS' overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday night, most of the players were huddled around a TV in the team's lounge at Wells Fargo Center. More players started to join the group as word circulated about the Panthers and Maple Leafs game in South Florida. By nature, the Flyers were grabbed by the action: The Panthers are one of two teams in pursuit of a final Stanley Cup playoff spot in the East. But something far more compelling was taking shape on the ice. Panthers starting goaltender Roberto Luongo went down in the first period and now backup Al Montoya was limping toward the bench in need of relief.

RALEIGH, N.C. - April Fools' Day isn't for another month or so, right? Pick up a paper today and flip to the sports section in the Miami Herald or Boston Globe and you're likely to be baffled. In South Florida, the Panthers are talking about the Stanley Cup playoffs. Huh? They've made it just once since 2000. In Beantown, the Bruins are in the middle of a meltdown. There is all sorts of chatter about whether general manager Peter Chiarelli should be fired, or whether coach Claude Julien will survive the summer if the Bruins don't make the playoffs.

RALEIGH, N.C. - As the Flyers continue their spirited playoff run Tuesday in Carolina, only their third- and fourth-string goalies will be available for the matchup with the Hurricanes. Ray Emery suffered an undisclosed lower-body injury Monday at practice in Voorhees, forcing the Flyers to recall Anthony Stolarz from the AHL's Phantoms. That means Rob Zepp, 33, who is in his first NHL season, will make his third consecutive start Tuesday, and Stolarz will be his backup. General manager Ron Hextall, whose team is four points out of a playoff spot, said that Emery had been dealing with a nagging injury before Monday, and that he probably would be sidelined a "few days.

BUFFALO - Funny game, hockey. Ray Emery's career appeared on life support last month, but the veteran goalie now has a chance to be the Flyers' (playoff) lifesaver. If the Flyers make the playoffs - and let's get this straight, they are still a long shot - Emery will have played a major role. He was thrust into the starter's position because of the latest injury to Steve Mason, and he appears up for the challenge. He is much sharper, much more confident than the goalie who struggled mightily for most of January.

MONTREAL - At one end of the Bell Centre ice, a blue, vinyl tarp - nicknamed the "Shooter Tutor" - covered most of the net, left vacant since Flyers call-up Anthony Stolarz did not make it to Quebec in time for practice. At the other end of the ice, Ray Emery turned aside shot after shot, shouldering the workload. That might not change for a while. The net will belong to Emery for the foreseeable future, as the Flyers determine a course of action for Steve Mason, who suffered his third injury in 6 weeks on Sunday in Washington.
