BUFFALO - If the Flyers are going to gain ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race, they need their defense to stop blowing assignments and their top line to snap out of its funk. The former problem has been season-long because the Flyers have been without cerebral veteran Kimmo Timonen, who has a steadying, calming effect on the defense. The latter problem has developed over the last few weeks. Before that, the top line - Claude Giroux centering Brayden Schenn/Michael Raffl and Jake Voracek - had been extremely productive.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Flyers general manager Ron Hextall made it clear Thursday that he is not going to trade one of his younger players for a chance to slip into the playoffs this season. "If the right deal comes along for now and for the future, we'll make it. If it doesn't, obviously we won't," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters. "We'll do everything we can to get in the playoffs, short of selling off younger assets. But we have our vision for the future. We're not going to do anything short-term that's going to hurt us long-term.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - In his first comments since Steve Mason reinjured his right knee and underwent arthroscopic surgery, general manager Ron Hextall said there was never any talk of shutting down the 26-year-old goalie for the rest of the season. "Why would we do that?" Hextall asked Thursday in a conference call with reporters. Hextall said the latest injury was not related to his knee ailment several weeks earlier. "They can tell that when they go into the knee. It was pretty obvious," said Hextall, who for the first time confirmed that arthroscopic surgery was performed.

COLUMBUS - Flyers general manager Ron Hextall revealed yesterday that goaltender Steve Mason did indeed undergo an arthroscopic scope on his right knee on Tuesday, but said the injury has no relation to the injury he suffered in his same knee 1 month ago. In fact, Hextall said doctors did not find any evidence at all of a previous injury in the knee. "This was an acute injury, which means it happened when it happened," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters. "[There was no]

COLUMBUS, Ohio - With their next four games against NHL lightweights Columbus and Buffalo, the Flyers have a chance to inch closer toward the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. Columbus (23-26-3), which is 14th in the 16-team Eastern Conference, will be the tougher opponent. The Flyers are 1-1-1 against the Blue Jackets this season, and 1-0 against the Sabres (16-36-3), who are last in the NHL with 35 points. "We can't worry about who we're playing or who other teams are playing," said captain Claude Giroux, whose team plays in Columbus on Friday and in Buffalo on Sunday.

COLUMBUS - The NHL's trade deadline is 17 days away, Ron Hextall's last chance to shake up a stagnant Flyers roster until the summer. Right now, we know as much about Hextall's long-range plan for the Flyers as we did on May 7, 2014, the day he was promoted to general manager. That is to say: not much. "Nothing has really changed," Hextall said yesterday in a conference call with reporters. "If the right deal comes along for now and for the future, we'll make it. If it doesn't, obviously we won't.

MONTREAL - Hours after doctors cut an incision in Steve Mason's right knee to investigate the source of his pain, the Flyers announced yesterday that the goaltender will be sidelined for 2 to 3 weeks. Mason, 26, left Sunday's game in Washington halfway through, flexing his right knee as he was carried to the locker room. He had trouble even stepping off the ice onto the bench. According to Rogers Sportsnet in Toronto, Mason underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure yesterday morning.

MONTREAL - The Flyers say they are confident that veteran goalie Ray Emery can pick up the load while Steve Mason recovers from his latest injury. Mason is sidelined indefinitely, and general manager Ron Hextall said Monday he would not have an update on the goalie's condition until Tuesday. Hextall did not respond to a text about a Comcast SportsNet report that Mason would undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. In the second period of a 3-1 win Sunday in Washington, Mason had to be helped to the locker room after suffering what appeared to be a knee injury.

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.

WASHINGTON - An injury to Steve Mason - who has been playing as well as any NHL goalie recently - overshadowed the Flyers' gritty 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals Sunday at the Verizon Center. Mason will be out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury and will be examined by a doctor in Philadelphia on Monday. He did not accompany the team to Montreal and probably won't join the Flyers in any of the three remaining games on the trip, general manager Ron Hextall said. "He won't be coming to Montreal, so I guess it's that serious," Hextall said of Mason's condition.
