NEW YORK - During Dave Hakstol's first summer-development camp with the Flyers, weeks after they'd hired him from the University of North Dakota, months before he led them to an improbable playoff berth, he did something out of character for even a neophyte NHL head coach. On the ice, going through drills and small scrimmages, were young players from all levels of the Flyers' organization, some who might get called up during the season, others who would spend the year in the minors or juniors, few who would see Hakstol again anytime soon.

STANDING in the hallway outside the Gene Hart press box, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall pointed out that any meaningful game at this stage of the season is good experience. Well, the Flyers are about to have a very educational weekend. Thursday night's loss to the Maple Leafs, the NHL's worst team, would have been more dismal if not for Wayne Simmonds' goal in the final minute. The point the Flyers earned by forcing overtime allowed them to maintain control of their postseason hopes, albeit precariously.

DETROIT - Defenseman Travis Sanheim and forward Nicolas Aube-Kubel, the Flyers' first two selections in the 2014 draft, will make their pro debuts Friday for the Phantoms in their AHL game at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Both joined the Phantoms this week after their junior seasons ended. Lehigh Valley has six games remaining. Phantoms coach Scott Gordon told reporters that playing the final two weeks of the season in the AHL would "give them the feeling of what expectations are, what the pace of the play is like.

A day after Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Andrew MacDonald would not play Wednesday in a crucial game in Detroit, there could now be a change of heart. MacDonald, who was slammed into the boards during a 6-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, participated fully during a brief practice Tuesday at the Skate Zone. Even though MacDonald is still listed as day to day with an upper-body injury, he will make the trip to Detroit. "A decision will be made [Wednesday]

Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald might have suffered a concussion when he was slammed into the boards Sunday in a 6-2 loss in Pittsburgh. He will not be able to play Wednesday in a key game in Detroit, general manager Ron Hextall announced Monday. Hextall would call it only an upper-body injury. Evgeny Medvedev, a healthy scratch for the last 11 games, will replace MacDonald, who is tied for second on the team with a plus-8 rating and has played well since replacing the injured Michael Del Zotto.

PITTSBURGH - Goalie Michal Neuvirth, who hasn't played since a 3-2 win in Chicago on March 16 because of a knee injury, will resume skating Monday but is still a long shot to be ready during the final weekend of the regular season, general manager Ron Hextall said. "Is it impossible? No," Hextall said Sunday when asked if Neuvirth could play next weekend. He said it would depend on how Neuvirth feels and what he can do on the ice. "There's a possibility, but a probability, I'd say no. " If the Flyers make the playoffs, Hextall said, he believes Neuvirth would be ready for the opening round.

IT'S NOT a philosophy I buy into, but there is merit in the argument that a team that didn't win a championship has accomplished as much as a team that finished last. That's the argument many Sixers fans have made by saying a team that's in its third straight last-place season is better off than if it were stuck in a cycle of low playoff seeds and early postseason exits. I understand that frustration. Still, no one can convince me that what we've seen from the Sixers is as intriguing as what we've seen from the Flyers.

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.

APPARENTLY, swimming upstream is only exhausting if you're not making headway. In the Flyers' case, they're moving right along. In fact, the further upstream they travel from playoff irrelevance to the playoff fringes, the stronger they get. If they make it to their goal, they can turn round and use the current to push them through the playoffs. "If a team has been in this situation for 20-plus games, like us, where we've have the water right here," said defenseman Mark Streit, his hand at his neck, "it helps.

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.
