Scott Laughton made a good first impression on the man who matters most - coach Peter Laviolette - as the Flyers opened their six-day training camp Sunday in front of a standing-room-only crowd in Voorhees. "He certainly didn't look out of place," Laviolette said. Laughton, an 18-year-old center who was the Flyers' first-round pick in the June draft, will be given every opportunity to earn a roster spot. "I thought he did a nice job out there," said Laviolette, who had watched Laughton play one junior game for Oshawa this season.

TAMPA, Fla. - The Flyers decided to send center Scott Laughton back to his junior team for more seasoning, general manager Paul Holmgren said before Sunday's inartistic 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay. Holmgren said that it was a difficult decision but that it was in Laughton's "best interest" to return to Oshawa in the Ontario Hockey League. "He needs to play and needs to play in all situations," Holmgren said. He added: "The little bit of time he had here was good for him and good for us. He got to know some of the guys and learn a little bit about being a pro. " Laughton, 18, spent five games with the Flyers, and had he played Sunday, his entry-level contract would have started.

When Scott Laughton returned home from the NHL draft two weeks ago, he thought it was finally starting to sink in that the Flyers selected him in the first round. He thought he understood the significance of it. He was wrong. On day one of the Flyers prospect camp, Laughton's welcome-to-the-Flyers moment came before he hit the ice at 9 a.m. It came in the locker room when he saw the orange Flyers sweater hanging up with his last name on the back above the No. 39. Finally, the magnitude of it all hit him. "It's a surreal feeling," Laughton said.

AFTER ABOUT 30 minutes of conditioning and shooting drills during the Flyers' practice session yesterday, it all started to sink in for Scott Laughton. Someone was missing, which meant Laughton, a 21-year-old center, had made the final cut. "Hard work's just begun and I'm excited for the opportunity," said Laughton, who was drafted 20th overall by the Flyers in 2012. "Definitely when I was 18, starting those five games in the lockout year, I don't think I took them for granted, but definitely know how hard it is to make the league and to stay there too. " The Flyers finalized their 23-man, Opening Night roster yesterday, placing veteran defenseman Andrew MacDonald on waivers.

  The nerves were jangling and his heart was beating loud in his ears when Scott Laughton jumped onto the ice in an NHL game for the first time in his young life on Saturday. The Flyers' first-round draft pick, just 18 years old and trying desperately not to get sent back to juniors, also had the advice of teammate Scott Hartnell in his ears. "He just told me to play my game and do the things that got me here," Laughton said. "Do every little thing right and the rest will take care of itself.

AS SCOTT Laughton hugged and said goodbye to his parents and friends in an empty section of seats in a chilly First Niagara Center on Sunday, teammate Zac Rinaldo limped down the steps toward the Flyers' awaiting bus to the airport. Rinaldo's limp, the product of 20 fresh stitches in his right thigh area, is Laughton's opportunity. "It's hockey. It happens," Rinaldo said of his injury. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced Monday that Rinaldo will need to sit out at least a week to allow his lacerated leg to heal.

This time, there was no Lou Nolan lecture, no flying bracelets, no futile power play. Two nights after about 100 fans littered the ice with bracelets during a one-sided Washington victory - and caught flak from public-address announcer Nolan - the Flyers rebounded Wednesday and staved off elimination. Getting goals from defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere and Andrew MacDonald, the Flyers outlasted the relentless Capitals, 2-1, at the reverberating Wells Fargo Center. Washington has a three-games-to-one lead in the opening-round playoff series.

Steve Mason and Michal Neuvirth both want to be the Flyers' No. 1 goalie next season, which will make an interesting subplot when training camp opens in September. "Over the course of the summer, I'm going to prepare to be a No. 1 guy," Mason said after the players cleared out their lockers at the team's Voorhees practice facility Tuesday. "Nothing is given. Nothing was given this year. Both of us had to earn playing time, so I go into next season not expecting to be given anything and having to come in and earn everything.

When you score a total of five goals, excluding an empty-netter, in a six-game playoff series, you don't need to be Scotty Bowman to assess the Flyers' biggest off-season needs. Here's a look at the team and its wish list heading into next season: Center The Flyers need more scoring here. Put free-agent Steven Stamkos on the Orange and Black, and they would be golden down the middle. But that is probably a pipe dream. David Backes, who can play center or wing but has a bit of mileage on him, is an interesting 6-foot-3, 221-pound free agent who would bump Sean Couturier down to the third line and give the Flyers a quality top three of Claude Giroux, Backes and Couturier.

IT WAS A strange scene to everyone except those who play this brutal and often unforgiving game. Wayne Simmonds and Alexander Ovechkin, talking side by side as medical men hovered over the motionless body of Scott Laughton. "We go to war with each other every single night," Simmonds would say later, after the Flyers hung on for a 2-1 victory. "But no one wants to see someone go down with an injury like that. " It may not always seem that way. It didn't seem that way moments before, when Laughton and Washington defenseman John Carlson competed full-speed for a puck and the ice between both and the backboards quickly evaporated.

Flyers left winger Scott Laughton left the ice on a stretcher Wednesday night after crashing into the boards with 3 minutes, 49 seconds left in the first period of the playoff game with the Washington Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center. Capitals defenseman John Carlson pushed Laughton below the left circle at the goal line and the Flyers winger slid into the boards. It did not appear to be a dirty hit by Carlson and there was no penalty on the play. Out of respect, players from both teams tapped their sticks as Laughton was transported off the ice on a backboard.

It was a hockey play, nothing more or less. There were just less than four minutes left in the first period Wednesday night of the Flyers' 2-1 victory in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Washington Capitals. Scott Laughton, speeding down the left wing, the puck on his stick, tried to hold a hairpin turn to the front of the Capitals' net, and John Carlson did what he was supposed to do. Carlson is the Capitals' best defenseman - as fast as most forwards and, at 6-foot-3 and 215, two inches taller and 25 pounds heavier than Laughton - and he got himself close to Laughton and pushed him off course, putting his hands and stick to Laughton's torso just as Laughton cut toward the net. Laughton careened into the boards.

It is the signature moment in the series right now, but not the most significant reason the Flyers will return to the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night facing a two-games-to-none deficit. Washington's Karl Alzner, in an attempt to give the Capitals time for a line change, fired a puck up ice from his own end Saturday night at the Verizon Center. With the Flyers' Scott Laughton on his back, Capitals forward Jason Chimera deflected the puck to prevent an icing call. Instead, against all odds, Chimera hit the jackpot.

WASHINGTON - After it was over and the Flyers had dropped a 4-1 decision to Washington on Saturday night, captain Claude Giroux looked and sounded stunned. "I'm not too sure what to say, to be honest," he said softly. "I think we played a good game, but at the end of the day, we have to win the game. " The Flyers outshot the Capitals, 42-23, after managing just 19 shots in their 2-0 loss in Game 1. Now they head home for Games 3 and 4. "We've been playing well at home this year," Giroux said.

WASHINGTON - Ed Snider would have liked the Flyers' lunch-pail effort Thursday at the red-clad Verizon Center, but he would not have enjoyed the result. Washington 2, Flyers 0. In a physical matchup, the top-seeded Capitals took a lead of one game to none in the best-of-seven first-round series that resumes here on Saturday night. Making matters worse, the Flyers lost invaluable center Sean Couturier to a second-period injury. Couturier appeared to injure his left shoulder severely, and he will be re-evaluated Friday.

The Flyers might be playing a pressure-filled season finale Sunday if Steve Mason didn't make a game-changing, first-period save Saturday in the playoff-clinching, 3-1 win over Pittsburgh. The Penguins, despite playing without most of their stars, came close to taking a 2-0 lead, but Mason made an acrobatic glove save on Kael Mouillierat's point-blank shot. "I remember we scored right after, and I was like, 'This goal's on you, you made a great save,' " captain Claude Giroux said.
