It was a silly, impulsive mistake, one made all the sillier because Scott Hartnell committed it in a game that meant so little. He'd gotten himself in a tussle with the Carolina Hurricanes' Brett Bellemore in the third period Sunday. The Flyers had clinched a playoff spot, knew that their first-round opponent would be the New York Rangers, and understood they had nothing to gain and much to lose in their regular-season finale. They were on their way to a 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes, and, well, at least there were 10 goals and a shootout to entertain everyone.

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.

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.

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.

The Flyers are cautiously optimistic that goalie Steve Mason will play in the playoff opener Thursday night against the New York Rangers. "I feel he will," general manager Paul Holmgren said Monday afternoon, "but you never know. We'll see how he feels in the morning" Tuesday. Mason was hurt in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Penguins' Jayson Megna knocked Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald into the 6-foot-4 goalie, snapping his head and neck back before he fell to the ice. Mason remained in the game for the final 3 minutes, 33 seconds of the second period before he was replaced by Ray Emery.

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.

SCOTT HARTNELL will pay for his stick-swinging incident on Sunday afternoon. Luckily for him, the hit from the NHL's Department of Player Safety will be on his wallet - and not the Flyers' lineup for Game 1 of their first-round series in New York against the Rangers. Hartnell was fined $5,000 yesterday for spearing Hurricanes defenseman Brett Bellemore. He received a 5-minute major on the play and an automatic game misconduct. It was half the maximum fine ($10,000) he could have received.

TAMPA, Fla. - Down the palm tree-lined street across from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the road-weary Columbus Blue Jackets were watching the Flyers' every move. Already in town ahead of their own meeting with the Lightning tonight, the Blue Jackets' hopes of climbing in the Metropolitan Division rose with every blaring goal horn - which they could probably hear from their balconies on a gorgeous Florida spring night. The Flyers will begin their quest for a Stanley Cup on the road.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Scott Hartnell is one of just four Flyers remaining from Steve Downie's first run with the club in 2008. To him, and others, it's been obvious that Downie wasn't himself the last month - or even the better part of this season. Normally outgoing as a practical joker in the dressing room, Downie has been quiet and reserved, bogged down by injuries contributing to a career-worst year. "He's usually a treat to be around, for sure," Hartnell said. "He's had some good days and bad days.

SCOTT HARTNELL waddled into the Flyers dressing room with a limp, a scowl on his face and a bag of ice taped under his shorts. In the third period of yesterday's gloriously physical game, Hartnell was taken down on a partial breakaway and his face smacked off the post so hard it's a miracle he wasn't covered in blood. Somehow, someway, Hartnell kept all of his teeth intact. "Desperation," Hartnell described. "Guys were laying their bodies on the line, taking hits to make plays.

A day of rest recharged the Flyers, especially on the power play Friday night. One night after coach Craig Berube gave his weary team a day off, the Flyers responded and, led by captain Claude Giroux, ended a two-game losing streak, outlasting the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. Giroux, who climbed into third place in the NHL scoring race with 78 points, had a goal and two assists as the Flyers moved to within a point of the second-place Rangers in the Metropolitan Division, as New York lost, 4-3, in Calgary.

MARK STREIT held the puck on his stick at the blue line and tried to dance around a defender. Seemingly all 19,876 inside the Wells Fargo Center were screaming "Shooooot!" in unison - with 7, then 6, then 5 seconds on the clock - yet none of the Flyers on the ice seemed to hear them. Streit dished to Jake Voracek on his right, who tried to sidestep one sliding Los Angeles King, before threading a cross-ice needle to the waiting stick of Claude Giroux. Sensing that time was running out, Giroux shoveled a half-hearted attempt at Jonathan Quick.

A BROKEN FOOT sustained while blocking a shot robbed Jeff Carter of what should have been his first game in Philadelphia as an opposing player. It was November 2011, about 5 months after the Flyers traded him to the Columbus Blue Jackets, and while he made the trip to his former home arena, Carter did not play. So last night, 33 months after he and Mike Richards were dealt on the same June day, Carter, in his third season with the Los Angeles Kings, made his return to the Wells Fargo Center ice. It marked the first time both he and Richards, who teamed up to help the Kings win the 2012 Stanley Cup, played together as visitors in Philadelphia.

The Flyers, the team that got its coach fired after three games and had the worst start (1-7) in franchise history, continued their remarkable turnaround Saturday afternoon. They defeated the best-in-the-NHL St. Louis Blues at the Wells Fargo Center, 4-1, and increased their winning streak to a season-high five games. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock is right: The Flyers are a scary opponent these days. "We looked at this four- or five-game stretch as a big measuring stick, to see how we do against some of the best teams in the league," said winger Scott Hartnell, mindful the winning streak includes victories against NHL powers Pittsburgh (twice)
