Forward Brayden Schenn, the Flyers' top offensive player recently, may miss Saturday's game against Columbus with a head injury. Schenn, who has 12 goals in the last 22 games, was injured Thursday in the 4-0 loss to visiting Edmonton. General manager Ron Hextall, through a team spokesman, said Friday that the Flyers were still gathering information on Schenn's injury and that they would have an announcement Saturday. In the third period Thursday, Oilers defenseman Adam Pardy put a bear hug on Schenn during a scrum and tackled him. Schenn's head hit the ice with Pardy atop him. Schenn returned for a few shifts and then missed the final 6 minutes, 7 seconds.

The Flyers' road to the playoffs got a little bumpier Monday with the news that winger Jake Voracek, one of the team's leading scorers, will miss the next two weeks because of an unspecified injury, general manager Ron Hextall said. Voracek collided with Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk on Thursday and did not play in Saturday's 4-2 win over Arizona. He has been wearing a boot on his left foot. Based on Hextall's timeline, Voracek will miss five more games, excluding Monday's against Calgary.

Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn are more than brothers. They are best friends, and both say they miss being Flyers teammates. Funny thing is, their play has been elevated - especially Brayden's - since they were separated Jan. 6, the day the Flyers dealt Luke Schenn to Los Angeles.    In his first 22 games since the trade, Brayden Schenn looked noticeably more confident and had nine goals and eight assists - his best streak of the season. Brayden Schenn was asked if his increased productivity was because he was taking on more responsibility with his brother not around.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall wants to make the playoffs this season, but he is also building the team for the long haul, so he would like to add some more draft picks. That's the quandary he faces with the trade deadline fast approaching Monday at 3 p.m. "I really don't know," Hextall said the other day when asked about the odds of the Flyers making a deal. "Kind of listening to everything. " Hextall said the Flyers were in a "tough spot" because they are in a playoff race but don't want to trade away youth (or draft picks)

The Flyers might get leading scorer Claude Giroux back for Saturday's matinee against visiting Arizona, but they will be without their No. 2 scorer, Jake Voracek.

"He had a good day, so we'll see where it goes," general manager Ron Hextall said. "There's a chance he'll play [Saturday]. " A few hours later, Hextall announced that Voracek (48 points)

Veteran defensemen Mark Streit and Nick Schultz will both be happy if the trade deadline at 3 p.m. Monday passes and they are still with the Flyers. General manager Ron Hextall is expected to be in seller's mode as he continues his rebuilding efforts by stocking up on draft pick. Streit and Schultz will be attractive to playoff teams. "I don't really pay attention to the rumors. It's part of the business," said Streit, who would be valuable to a contender like Tampa Bay because he can quarterback a power play.

After struggling to make an impact at center, Scott Laughton may have found a home at his new position, left wing. A center in juniors and the AHL and NHL levels, Laughton has four points since being shifted to left wing three games ago. "Three games in a row he's been a good player. He's made an impact each night," coach Dave Hakstol said after perhaps Laughton's best NHL performance, a dominating effort in Tuesday's frustrating 3-1 loss in Carolina. "He's generated opportunities with some of his speed, his tenacity.

The medical update on Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier was encouraging. The Flyers centers skated at the team's Voorhees practice facility Sunday, and general manager Ron Hextall said both might play in Tuesday's key game in Carolina. Couturier has missed the last nine games with a foot/ankle injury, and Hextall said he was "ahead of schedule. " The Flyers are 3-3-3 in those games. Giroux sat out Saturday's 5-4 overtime win in Toronto with a suspected head injury. Giroux, the team's top scorer with 49 points, has a better chance to play Tuesday than Couturier.

The legend of the Ghost That Saved the Flyers is growing. It spread north of the border over the weekend, in Montreal and Toronto, as Shayne Gostisbehere extended his NHL record for rookie defensemen by scoring in his 14th and 15th consecutive games. "I'm living the dream," Gostisbehere, a Florida native, said with a smile after scoring 29 seconds into overtime and giving the Flyers a critical 5-4 win Saturday in Toronto. "It's just cool how my teammates have been doing it with me and see how happy they get. It's awesome.

MONTREAL - Five years later, the Jeff Carter trade is paying new dividends for the Flyers. Oh, they certainly could use a scoring machine like Carter, one of the NHL's most dependable forwards. But the return they received is getting better each day: Jake Voracek. Sean Couturier. Nick Cousins. Those turned out to be the three young players the Flyers received for Carter, now 31 and starting to decline. And while then-general manager Paul Holmgren would like a do-over on some of his moves/signings, this isn't one of them.
