NEWARK, N.J. - Scott Hartnell skated Friday, but there is no change to the timetable for the injured left winger. Hartnell suffered a broken bone in his left foot Jan. 22 and was expected to miss four to eight weeks. Three weeks have passed since Hartnell underwent surgery. He met with a doctor Friday. Hartnell led the Flyers with a career-high 37 goals last season, and his absence has been felt this month as scoring has become an issue for the team. "He's a big part of our locker room.

The Flyers came up with the usual words to characterize a loss to the New York Rangers that further buried them in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. But Scott Hartnell may have found the most accurate and fitting one. "Demoralizing," Hartnell said Wednesday after a short but intense practice at The Skate Zone in Voorhees. It had to be. The Flyers never led Tuesday night in a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Rangers. After drawing to within 3-2 in the third period, the Flyers watched New York control the rest of the game and wound up falling seven points out of the eighth and final playoff spot with 16 games remaining.

Watching the Flyers from afar (his couch), injured winger Scott Hartnell says he can sense the frustration of his teammates through his television set. Hartnell, who is out four to six weeks after surgery on his broken left foot, was a visitor at practice Wednesday, and he tried to supply encouraging words to his teammates. It's not easy to be upbeat when the team is 2-5 and has struggled on the power play. Entering Wednesday, the Flyers were 23d in the NHL in power-play percentage.

BY THE time Feb. 21 rolls around, the earliest date Scott Hartnell is projected to return from a broken foot, he will have played just 26 regular-season games in an entire calendar year thanks to the NHL lockout. For a player who missed just three contests in his first six seasons in Philadelphia, two to suspension and one to illness, that's a significant blow. It's an even bigger blow for the Flyers, who are clearly reeling without their leading goal-scorer from last season.

SUNRISE, Fla. - When Flyers left winger Scott Hartnell received a text from Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's disciplinary guru, he figured he may have done something that would cause him to be punished. "He said, 'Please call me,' and I was trying to think back to the last game and if maybe I did something stupid," Hartnell said with a laugh before Tuesday's game in Florida. Instead, Hartnell was told he had been added to the all-star team. At first, Hartnell kidded his teammates and his father, telling them he was going to have a disciplinary hearing.

SCOTT HARTNELL is a gambling man. During the NHL's mind-sapping lockout, Hartnell had two choices: head to Europe to stay in shape with the hope of carrying over the momentum from his career year; or stay in North America and enjoy the spoils of life without hockey for a change. More than 200 players with NHL contracts skated in Europe. Hartnell chose the road less traveled. He spent much of his time in the Phoenix area, working out with other NHL players in Scottsdale. Braydon Coburn joined him in some of those workouts.

For the 0-3 Flyers, the news keeps getting worse. They lost two forwards from their already-depleted lineup Wednesday as Brayden Schenn was suspended for a game and the team announced that Scott Hartnell was out "indefinitely" because of an injured left foot. Both will miss Thursday's game against the visiting New York Rangers. The Flyers were already missing injured forwards Danny Briere and Zac Rinaldo. Schenn was suspended by the NHL for a second-period hit on New Jersey's Anton Volchenkov in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Devils.

Simon Gagne isn't the only Flyers winger who is back. So is Scott Hartnell. Oh, Hartnell has played three games since returning from a broken left foot, but it wasn't until Wednesday that he started to assert himself, keying the Flyers' 4-1 win over Washington. Hartnell was more physical and quicker than in any of his other games since he returned, and he picked up a pair of primary assists - one in which he won a puck battle in front and, from his knees, sent a pass to Claude Giroux for an easy goal.

Flyers winger Scott Hartnell has a cameo - and some lines - in the recent movie This Is 40 and says working in the film industry is more difficult than he had imagined. "I'll tell you one thing - I have a lot more respect for movie stars and directors and people like that," Hartnell said Wednesday after an informal practice in Voorhees. "We were on the set for 16 hours. It was a really, really long day for the minute or minute and a half we were in the movie. " Hartnell is in a scene with Ian Laperriere, the Flyers' director of player development, and former Flyers James van Riemsdyk and Matt Carle.

COLUMBUS - Before yesterday morning, the only time R.J. Umberger had spent in the visitors' locker room at Nationwide Arena came during the 2012-13 NHL lockout, when the Blue Jackets' locker room, obviously, wasn't accessible. "It's pretty weird," he noted after the Flyers practiced here yesterday. "It's a different feeling. " Though the Flyers (9-13-4) already have twice faced Scott Hartnell and the Blue Jackets (9-15-2), tonight's meeting is the first in Columbus. It's a meaningful one for Umberger, Philadelphia's oft-maligned third-line left wing.

EVER THE PEST, Scott Hartnell glided up the red line during warmups and playfully stole the puck from former teammate Claude Giroux. He also lofted a shot toward Steve Mason - which in the old days might have sparked an Ed Hospodar-style pregame donnybrook. Anything goes, Hartnell figured, if his antics could take the Flyers off their game and help Columbus rewrite a franchise record book filled with dubious marks. Whatever Hartnell did, it worked. The sluggish Flyers were held without an even-strength goal and fell to a Columbus roster littered with AHL fill-ins by a 4-3 score last night.

Columbus left winger Scott Hartnell returned to the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night, and he and his teammates interrupted the good mojo the Flyers had built recently in his old home. Blue Jackets 4, Flyers 3. To borrow a Richie Ashburn-ism: "Hard to believe, Harry. " Columbus was missing eight regulars - including goalie Sergei Bobrovsky - and had entered the night on a franchise-record-tying nine-game losing skid. But Nick Foligno and James Wisniewski each scored a pair of goals, and Ryan Johansen had four assists as Columbus snapped the Flyers' three-game winning streak.

STARING at a crossroads last June, trying to decide whether to continue his career at age 39, Kimmo Timonen leaned on best friend Scott Hartnell for advice. If Timonen was going to keep playing, going to take one last shot at a Stanley Cup, he wanted to do it with Hartnell. The odd couple of friends - a rambunctious and goofy ginger from Lloydminster, Alberta, and a super serious Finn who started their NHL careers together in 2000 in Tennessee - mapped out a final voyage. They looked at the schedule.

Claude Giroux says it will be "really strange" facing former linemate Scott Hartnell when the Flyers meet Columbus on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. "When we played together, we were always joking about fighting when we played each other," the Flyers' captain said after practice Thursday in Voorhees. "Everybody loved him here in Philly, so it's going to be pretty special for him. " The Flyers will honor Hartnell with a video tribute, and Giroux expects the 32-year-old winger - sent to Columbus for R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round 2015 draft pick in June - to receive a warm reception.

READING BETWEEN the lines, the knock on R.J. Umberger last year in Columbus was that he was slow. He couldn't keep up with the up-tempo Blue Jackets, who were marching toward their second playoff berth in franchise history mostly without him. Umberger was sidelined as a healthy scratch by coach Todd Richards when the games mattered most in March and April. Umberger, 32, met general manager Jarmo Kekalainen after the season and asked the Blue Jackets for a ticket out of town. With 3 years and $13.5 million left on his deal, finding a buyer would be tough.

BEFORE MOST of the Flyers took the ice for an hourlong practice, two players in gray non-contact jerseys spent about 20 minutes doing some light skating and stretching. One was Luke Schenn, the latest addition to a long list of injured Philadelphia defensemen. The other turned out to be center Ryan White, who underwent August surgery to repair a pectoral muscle. Andrew MacDonald, the rehabbing defenseman who was expected to skate yesterday as he works his way back from a right knee injury, did not take the ice. However, his absence doesn't signify a setback, according to coach Craig Berube, who said, "We'll see if he's there [today]

While the Flyers' Steve Mason and Jake Voracek said Friday's game against their former team, Columbus, was just another matchup on the schedule, two other players had different sentiments: Scott Hartnell and R.J. Umberger, wingers who were traded for each other last June in a salary-cap-related deal. "I'm a pretty emotional person, and to see the guys, and to be in that arena and not go in the home dressing room, and see the trainers and coaches and everyone that I love will be tough," Hartnell said on a conference call Wednesday from Columbus.

Considering that the Flyers have won three straight and have momentum on their side, it's probably not a good thing that they have five days between games. Craig Berube, however, is taking a positive look at the break. "With the injuries, it helps, for sure," the Flyers' coach said, knowing that Andrew MacDonald, Luke Schenn and Michael Raffl are healing and not missing games until the Flyers return Friday against visiting Columbus. "I think it's good, too, because we can work on things.

The Flyers need R.J. Umberger, a five-time 20-goal scorer, to start resembling the player who had 18 goals with Columbus last season. Coach Craig Berube put the struggling left winger on the second line for the second straight game Tuesday night against Edmonton. Umberger - who entered the night with one goal, three points, and a minus-5 rating in 11 games - was again alongside Vinny Lecavalier and Wayne Simmonds. Because of their size, "they should be a strong cycle line down low," Berube said before the game.
