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.

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.

NEW YORK - You are Craig Berube, and you are the head coach of a team in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time. You have lost the first game of the series to the Rangers and already been criticized for your chip-and-charge strategy. You lost the game after a rookie who arrived on the scene in Game 82 of the season took a 4-minute penalty that resulted in two goals against, so you have been criticized for your player selection as well as for your strategy. In all, an interesting debut.

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.

Because the Flyers will get the last line change at home, the top unit of Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Scott Hartnell won't face the New York Rangers' standout defensive pairing - Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - as often when the series switches to the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. "They'll get those guys out there enough," Flyers coach Craig Berube said of the Rangers duo. Berube said the Flyers' No. 1 line "just has to keep competing the way they are. I thought they did a better job last game being competitive, supporting each other better, using their speed.

NEW YORK - If the Flyers are going to win their first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers, they are going to have to get their top line untracked. In the Rangers' 4-1 opening-game win Thursday, the Rangers primarily used the fourth line of Brian Boyle, Dominic Moore, and Derek Dorsett - and defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - to shut down Claude Giroux and his linemates, Scott Hartnell and Jake Voracek. The Giroux line was pointless and combined for just two shots - both by Hartnell.

NEW YORK - Settling into the Flyers' hotel overlooking Central Park, Scott Hartnell acknowledged he lingered awake longer than normal Thursday night in the city that never sleeps. "It was tough to sleep, knowing you lost Game 1 and it was right there going into the third period," Hartnell said. "I think you're going to see a different attitude, different mindset in Game 2. " The Flyers' attitude and mindset might be different, but after generating only 14 shots on Henrik Lundqvist after scoring on their first attempt on Thursday night, it doesn't sound as if Craig Berube's game plan will change all that much for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series tomorrow afternoon.

NEW YORK - Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who missed the playoff opener against the host Rangers because of an upper-body injury, is "doing better," coach Craig Berube said. Berube originally said Mason would arrive Friday, but he was at Madison Square Garden by game time Thursday. The Flyers said after the game that Mason would practice with the team Friday in New York. Berube said he didn't know if Mason would be available for Sunday's game. Still, he seemed encouraged that the goalie was on his way to recovery.

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.

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.

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.
