Rod Brind'Amour was skating hard to the net, keeping pace with Eric Lindros and working a two-on-one on Detroit goalie Mike Vernon, when Lindros feathered a pass behind his back and across the crease. If anybody was going to put the Flyers ahead, Brind'Amour had the chance. And for a few frozen seconds late in the first period, it looked as if it would happen. Brind'Amour got his stick on the puck and drove it on the startled Vernon, but it passed harmlessly though the crease and squirted into the corner.

You win a few, lose a few and blow a few - such as Saturday's 2-2 tie with San Jose. The Flyers went into the third period with a 2-0 lead over the Sharks. They had been 4-0 this season when leading after two periods. Failing to win was a new wrinkle for a tired, struggling hockey team that has four days to recover before Eddie Johnston's Pittsburgh Penguins - a team in worse shape than Terry Murray's Flyers - limp into the CoreStates Center on Thursday night. Perhaps a trade is coming soon, too. Flyers general manager Bob Clarke has delayed making any "panic" deals, as he calls them, until he is confident that Eric Lindros will come back healthy.

Although they appear to be headed for their fourth straight season out of the playoffs, many of the Flyers were relieved yesterday that general manager Russ Farwell did not make a trade on Monday. The trading deadline was Monday at 3 p.m., and rosters are now frozen until the end of the playoffs. "I'm glad they didn't push the panic button and break up this team," center Rod Brind'Amour said. "I want to keep everybody here together. I hope they give us some time. We're starting to feel more comfortable.

It's going to take some time for Rod Brind'Amour to get the hang of this stardom business. Brind'Amour, 21, the only Flyer who will take the ice with the NHL All- Stars at the Spectrum this weekend, was named to the Wales Conference team despite his repeated insistence that other Flyers were more deserving. He drives a Camaro Z-28 that stands out among the Saabs and BMWs in the players' parking lot, but he also lives in a rented, two-bedroom, South Jersey townhouse with teammate Dan Quinn and defines a really good time as a trip to the movies - alone.

Rod Brind'Amour, the veteran center for the Flyers, will begin exercises to strengthen his fractured left foot today and could resume skating "sometime this week," Arthur Bartolozzi, the team's orthopedic surgeon, said yesterday. When Brind'Amour, who has yet to play this season, might return will depend on how he responds to the exercises and to conditioning workouts, Bartolozzi said. The status of Brind'Amour, a key player, will have a direct impact on whether Simon Gagne, a rookie center, leaves this weekend for the World Junior Championships or remains with the Flyers.

Last night was supposed to be opening night for the Flyers. But the Spectrum was dark, like all the other hockey arenas in NHL cities across the United States and Canada. Flyers captain Eric Lindros, right winger Mark Recchi and center Rod Brind'Amour were all in Toronto yesterday along with the NHL's other top stars meeting with Bob Goodenow, executive director of the NHL Players Association. More than 100 players, at least one from each of the 26 teams, showed up for the meeting for an update on negotiations with the owners.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke yesterday acknowledged for the first time that he's had several discussions - including one this week - with the Hartford Whalers about acquiring left wing Brendan Shanahan. "All it is, is talk because nothing is really happening. And in order for something to happen, it has to begin at their end," Clarke said. "We haven't offered anyone and they haven't told us who they want. " NHL sources say that Whalers GM Jim Rutherford has told Clarke that any deal for Shanahan must include center Rod Brind'Amour.

It was supposed to be the Eric and Mario Show last night at the Spectrum. Instead, it was just about everything else. The Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins combined for 11 goals, 87 shots and twice that number of sensational offensive plays. They also combined for a raucous 11-player brawl late in the third period. Along the way, the Flyers won, 6-5. Oh, well, every game can't be a defensive gem. "Playing solid defense is the way to beat this team," said a relieved Terry Murray, the Flyers coach.

He plays about as infrequently as the Eagles win games. Nonetheless, Flyers goalie Ron Hextall prides himself on preparedness. "I've always been sharp in practice," Hextall said. "I've done everything the same except I don't play as often. " Hextall turned in his fourth straight excellent outing as the tired Flyers outlasted the Washington Capitals, 2-1, last night at the First Union Center. Hextall has played Nov. 14, Nov. 20, Nov. 29 and last night over the last month, and he's been a decisive factor in four Flyers wins, including this one, in which he made 22 saves.

The slump hits and the knots begin to form in his stomach and he begins to squeeze the sawdust out of his stick. "When things aren't happening for me, I have this tendency to keep getting madder at myself and more frustrated," Flyers center Rod Brind'Amour said yesterday. As he spoke, the quiet, intense Brind'Amour balled his fists in anger. The Flyers' lone representative in the NHL All-Star Game 10 days ago, Brind'Amour has gone 13 successive games without a goal. It's a run of futility that becomes magnified on a team that has to strain for every goal, as the Flyers, who take a four-game losing streak into tonight's game against Washington at the Spectrum, have done all season.

THE LIGHTS dimmed inside Wells Fargo Center and players from the Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes walked out to their respective benches to watch the ceremony, the Flyers wearing No. 17 patches on their jerseys. A tribute started to play on the video board, showing the newest Flyers Hall of Famer - and current Hurricanes assistant coach - Rod Brind'Amour. Highlights from the eight-plus seasons Brind'Amour spent adorned in orange and black in Philadelphia played with Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" as the background music.

WASHINGTON - When Paul Holmgren acquired hulking defensemen Pavel Kubina and Nicklas Grossman last month, the idea was for them to bolster an already-solid blue line. Not be the Flyers' saving grace. Now, since Holmgren announced yesterday that defensemen Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros will be "out indefinitely" with vague lower-body injuries, that's exactly what the Flyers will need Kubina and Grossman to be. Last night, coach Peter Laviolette limited third pairing Andreas Lilja and call-up Erik Gustafsson to a combined 30 minutes and 26 seconds.

Flyers Notes RALEIGH, N.C. - To thunderous chants of "Rod-dy, Rod-dy, Rod-dy," former Flyer Rod Brind'Amour 's No. 17 Carolina Hurricanes jersey was retired Friday night in a stirring ceremony before the teams met at the RBC Center. After praising many people associated with the Hurricanes, Brind'Amour, 40, thanked the Flyers "for bringing me to Philadelphia at a young age" and saluted Flyers fans for "instilling passion in me. " Flyers coach Peter Laviolette received a loud ovation when Brind'Amour thanked him for directing his 2006 team to the Stanley Cup, which, in a surprise move, was taken onto the ice late in the ceremony.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The date was Jan. 23, 2000, one that Rod Brind'Amour will never forget. More than 11 years after the day the fan favorite was traded by the Flyers with Jean-Marc Pelletier and a second-round pick to Carolina for Keith Primeau and a fifth-round pick, Brind'Amour still isn't exactly sure how he got through it. Brind'Amour, who had just returned from a broken foot when he was dealt, was so eager to fit in with his new team that...

RALEIGH, N.C. - A longtime Carolina Hurricanes season ticketholder, Bruce Dunn has no love for the Flyers. He hated them long before Keith Primeau ever went there after a holdout that still leaves a sour taste for many Hurricanes fans. Yet the bonds Peter Laviolette built with the Hurricanes, their fans and the Research Triangle community are so strong, Dunn will be rooting for the Flyers, not the Blackhawks, when Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals begins tonight. "I hate Philadelphia, hate them with a passion," Dunn said.

The Flyers needed a wake-up call. Ian Laperriere gave it to them. With his fists. For the second time in the last three games, Laperriere energized the Flyers with a fight as he helped them outlast the lowly Carolina Hurricanes, 4-2, at the Wachovia Center yesterday. Just 45 seconds after the toothless Laperriere won his second fight of the afternoon - he pounded Tom Kostopoulos - Chris Pronger scored a power-play goal to snap a 1-1 second-period tie and send the Flyers to their third consecutive win on the six-game homestand.

The goals came in bunches for the Carolina Hurricanes. So did the records. The Hurricanes matched a club mark with their ninth straight victory by giving the visiting New York Islanders the worst beating in franchise history, a 9-0 rout last night. Eric Staal had three goals and an assist, and finished with a club-record fourth hat trick of the season. Cam Ward made 12 saves in setting the team's single-season mark with victory No. 39, and he matched another club mark with his sixth shutout while helping Carolina extend its franchise-record home-ice winning streak to 12. "We're playing the right way. We're playing at a high, competitive level, and we're playing like a well-oiled machine," Staal said.

The Flyers began their second shoot-out of the season happy just to have gotten that far, with a chance to steal an extra point. They ended it last night with a bad taste in their mouths after the final shot of the shoot-out - by Carolina's Rod Brind'Amour, a former Flyer - went off the glove of Flyers goalie Martin Biron, flew into the air, bounced off Biron's back, and went into the net to give the Hurricanes a 6-5 victory. The Hurricanes, who lead the Southeast Division, received goals on each of their three rounds in the shoot-out, from Matt Cullen, Jeff Hamilton and Brind'Amour, who played parts of nine seasons wearing the Flyers' black and orange.
