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.

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.

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.

ONE YEAR ago today, Ed Snider and Paul Holmgren waltzed into the wood-paneled Hall of Fame room at Wells Fargo Center to announce the promotion of Ron Hextall to general manager. Three hundred and sixty-five days later, what have we learned? There has been the bizarre, like last month, when Hextall left head coach and friend Craig Berube dangling for two days before finally cutting him down. There has been the bungled, like on Feb. 26, when the Flyers skated by the $69 million salary cap with just $48,000 to spare, forcing Steve Mason into the lineup and eventually into the net in Toronto after 60 percent of the meniscus in his right knee was removed 16 days earlier.

THE BODIES are still warm. There are 2 more weeks, eight more games, and a summerlong autopsy to be performed on the rotting Flyers. How did we get here? How did this happen? Just 16 days ago, the Flyers were 15 seconds away from clawing within two points of Boston, making this last month of the season not only relevant but maybe even magical. Let's take a look back at 5 days that sunk the Flyers' season, in chronological order: 1. June 23, 2014: Scott Hartnell traded to Columbus in exchange for R.J. Umberger.

The Flyers' much-maligned defense has played better lately, but their offense has not responded, causing the team to fall out of the playoff race. "We're not finishing, not executing - especially me," said second-line center Sean Couturier after Wednesday's practice in Voorhees. "I've been having a lot of quality scoring chances lately and haven't been finishing. . . . I think all year, we've been through stretches where we're not executing, we're not finishing. It's not always about competing.

For the first time this season, Flyers winger R.J. Umberger was a healthy scratch Tuesday against Dallas. Acquired in the offseason with a fourth-round 2015 draft pick in the deal that sent Scott Hartnell to Columbus, Umberger is goalless in his last 18 games, a career worst. He had a 17-game pointless streak earlier in the season. "I can't say my game's [going] too well, and I don't have too many feet to stand on right now and disagree," Umberger said in a somber tone after the morning skate.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Columbus winger Scott Hartnell no longer pores over the Flyers' stats like he did earlier in the season, and he finally feels that he has cut ties with his former team. But he will forever feel united with his ex-teammates, many of whom he had over to his house Thursday night for a dinner cooked by his mother and father. "Friends for life," Hartnell called many of his former Flyers teammates before he was honored in a pregame ceremony Friday for playing in his 1,000th career NHL game.

COLUMBUS - Technically, it was his 1,001st NHL game - but the Blue Jackets waited until last night to officially honor Scott Hartnell for hitting the millennium milestone against his former team. Before the game, Hartnell was presented with a silver stick, a Tiffany crystal, a shiny watch from his teammates and a commemorative painting depicting the three stops in his career: Nashville, Philadelphia and Columbus. His parents, Bill and Joy, joined him on the ice from Lloydminster, Alberta.

MONTREAL - The player who calls himself Stolie the Goalie on Twitter, Anthony Stolarz, took part in the Flyers' morning skate Tuesday and still couldn't believe he was in the NHL. "It's definitely a surreal moment for me," Stolarz said, "and one of the prouder moments of my life. " After Lehigh Valley's 5-4 win in Hershey on Sunday, Stolarz said he thought it was a joke when some of his teammates told him he was being called up by the Flyers. He realized it was official when Phantoms coach Terry Murray informed him he was being promoted because of Steve Mason's latest injury.

TELL ME if this sounds familiar. One star young prospect has sat out most of this season with a knee injury. Another was shipped out before the season began to get more seasoning, especially through international play. Still another player, the team's bonafide star and leader, is managing his recent injury ever-so-carefully, even at the risk of losses that will inch his team closer to a top pick in an upcoming draft that is top heavy in talent, and further from a playoff spot that is already highly improbable, if not impossible.

NASHVILLE - Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who has missed the last four games with an apparent back injury, returned to practice Saturday and said he felt "close to 100 percent. " After taking shots from the team's extra players, Mason said he hopes to play Monday in Arizona. "My goal is to play against Arizona; today was a really good first step," Mason said after a 45-minute, on-ice workout in Nashville. "I think I got more work in than we had planned, which was a good sign. I was moving good, and my energy level was pretty good as well.
