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.

AFTER THE playoff wins, the roar-inducing goals and the constant banter with Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell will miss the meals at Spasso Italian Grill the most. Hartnell began stopping at Spasso at Front and Chestnut streets for pregame meals not long after he arrived in town in 2007. Each season, a few more players would join Hartnell in making Spasso a part of their game-day ritual. By last year, Hartnell had more than half the team hooked. And it wasn't just the food. Without any official designation or signage, Hartnell turned a neighborhood restaurant into an extension of the Flyers' locker room.

RON HEXTALL made his first statement as the new Flyers general manager this week and this is what the trade of Scott Hartnell said: This thing is a bigger crow's nest than a novice's fishing reel, and it's going to take me a while to get out all the knots. Oh, he talked again yesterday about R.J. Umberger adding a little speed and versatility to a lineup that keeps losing, not adding, goal-scorers. He even said he wasn't wary of picking up a 32-year-old player who had fallen even more out of favor in Columbus than Hartnell had here because "R.J.

The Flyers gained speed and shed some long-term salary obligations Monday when they acquired R.J. Umberger and sent Scott Hartnell to Columbus. The deal of 32-year-old wingers was the first made by new Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, who also acquired a fourth-round draft pick in 2015 from the Blue Jackets. Umberger, who started his career with the Flyers, had 18 goals and 16 assists last season as the Blue Jackets returned to the playoffs after a four-year absence. "I feel I have a lot left in the tank," Umberger said.

FOR WHATEVER reasons, the Flyers apparently like to make trades on June 23. It was the day in 2011 when Mike Richards and Jeff Carter were dealt. A year later, it became the day James van Riemsdyk was shipped to Toronto. Perhaps fittingly, it's now the day Ron Hextall made his first trade as Flyers general manager. First-line left winger and alternate captain Scott Hartnell, a Philadelphia mainstay of seven seasons, was dealt yesterday to the Columbus Blue Jackets for R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick in next summer's draft.

REGRET, REWRITE, projection. They are the byproducts of loss in sports, especially as it pertains to the postseason. And when your team last won a championship when Muhammad Ali was the heavyweight champion, Vietnam was finally ending and some company named Microsoft was just starting - well, those byproducts become a sport all unto themselves. And so here we are, on the brink of another Stanley Cup finals, loaded up again with the ifs and buts from another Flyers season. What if the Flyers still had Mike Richards and Jeff Carter?

New Flyers general manager Ron Hextall says he likes the group of forwards he has inherited, but implied something is missing. "Whether it's a perfect fit, that's a thing I tend to look at - the lines and the fit," Hextall said after being named Paul Holmgren's successor Wednesday. "There's a couple things. We had a lot of guys move around the lineup this year. I'd like to find one or two guys that are a little better fit. I don't know if that will be out there or not. That would be one priority.

Flyers fans feel frustrated, feel empty, as they watch the New York Rangers - the beatable team that eliminated the Orange and Black - face the beatable Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers, without a Stanley Cup since 1975, feel the same way after losing to the Rangers in seven opening-round games. "I still don't think they were the better team," winger Wayne Simmonds said. The Flyers, of course, have no one to blame but themselves.

CLAUDE GIROUX had not yet totally arrived as the Flyers' next superstar or captain, but was beginning to burst onto the scene in the 2010 postseason. One thing he took from that magical run to the Stanley Cup finals was the comportment of defenseman Chris Pronger. It was May 2010. The Flyers already had knocked off New Jersey in five quick games. They were not playing poorly, but quickly found themselves in a hole against Boston. "We lost a game. I was ready to break all my sticks," Giroux remembered.

TO TINKER or not to tinker? That is the question for Craig Berube. To begin the third period Sunday afternoon, the Flyers coach shifted Brayden Schenn to skate with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. It was the first time in months Scott Hartnell was not flanked to Giroux's left. Yet, when Giroux scored his first goal at Madison Square Garden in more than 450 days, Schenn was on the bench with Steve Mason. Hartnell was in the middle of the ice, pulling Rangers defenders away from the Flyers' captain.

NEW YORK - Trailing by two goals and searching for a spark, Craig Berube sent Brayden Schenn over the boards with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek on the second shift of the third period. For Giroux and Voracek, it marked the first time in months they had skated a regular shift with anyone other than Scott Hartnell. "I switched it up just to try to get something going," Berube reasoned postgame. "I'm not sure if I'll stick with that or not. I just made a switch there. " The switch seemed inevitable, just based on the Rangers' ability to shut down the Flyers' top line through the first four games and two periods.
