NEWARK, N.J. - Based on their seven exhibition games and their season-opening, 2-1 win in Boston on Thursday, maybe the Flyers slogan should be, "The Kids Are All Right. " It's unusual to thrust a rookie onto the penalty-killing units, but that's what coach Peter Laviolette did with forwards Sean Couturier and Matt Read - and both were effective in the hard-fought victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions. Couturier, who is just 18, played more time on the penalty kill (4 minutes, 34 seconds)

Ever since Flyers coach Craig Berube combined Wayne Simmonds with Matt Read and Sean Couturier, that line has thrived. Simmonds had been playing recently on a line with the since-demoted Scott Laughton and Ryan White until Berube made changes in a 3-1 Flyers win in Washington on Feb. 8. "I thought at times with the matchups and the way things were going, Wayne wasn't getting enough [chances]," Berube said Tuesday before the Flyers faced Columbus. "I always thought Wayne should be on that line with those guys.

Sean Couturier, expected to be the Flyers' third-line center, agreed to a two-year contract extension Saturday that will pay him a total of $3.5 million - a $1.75 million cap hit per season. Couturier, 20, could have become a restricted free agent after the 2013-14 season. After a solid rookie year (13 goals, 27 points, plus-18 rating) Couturier went through a sophomore slump in 2013, when he had just four goals, 15 points and a minus-8 rating in 46 games. Before joining the Flyers after the lockout ended, he had 28 points in 31 games with the AHL Adirondack Phantoms last season.

WASHINGTON - Right winger Wayne Simmonds missed the Flyers' last preseason game Thursday night because of a lower-body injury. Simmonds led the Flyers with 29 goals last season. Coach Craig Berube said Simmonds' status for the season opener Wednesday in Boston was unknown, but it seems a good sign that he will travel with the team Friday to Cape Cod, where the Flyers will have two practices and some bonding activities. Blair Jones, a free-agent signee who has been one of the most pleasant surprises in training camp, replaced Simmonds on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read on Thursday.

Put a fork in the Flyers. That's what most fans are probably thinking after the Flyers did the inexplicable Thursday night at the stunned Wells Fargo Center: They lost to a woeful Buffalo team that had just three wins in a little more than two months. Buffalo 3. Flyers 2. In a shootout. Brian Flynn scored the game-winner, giving the Sabres a 7-2 record in shootouts. The Flyers fell to 2-7 in shootouts. Buffalo, the NHL's worst team, entered the night with three wins since Dec. 16, going 3-21-2 in 26 games.

BUFFALO - Michael Raffl says that he isn't quite 100 percent and that he is still getting his wind back after a long bout with pneumonia. On Sunday night, however, he breathed life into the Flyers' playoff hopes. Playing in his first game since Jan. 20, Raffl scored on a wraparound with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over hapless Buffalo at the First Niagara Center. The victory moved the Flyers to within five points of idle Boston for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Flyers are showing a funny way of trying to sneak closer in the playoff race. For the second straight game, they picked up a point but blew a third-period lead and lost on the road. This time, they coughed up a 3-1 advantage en route to a 4-3 overtime defeat to Columbus at Nationwide Arena on Friday night. Artem Anisimov's first goal in 21 games, scored on a rebound, gave Columbus the win with 2 minutes, 43 seconds left in overtime.  The Flyers had dropped a 2-1 overtime decision in Montreal on Tuesday.

COLUMBUS - Barely 4 minutes had elapsed since the Civil War-replica cannon exploded, signaling an overtime win for the Blue Jackets. Claude Giroux was already out of his equipment. He angrily threw his sneakers at a stationary bike in the hallway before beginning his postgame exercise routine. For the second game in a row, the Flyers threw away a valuable point, coughing up a lead with under 10 minutes to play. On Tuesday night, it was Montreal. Last night, the Flyers blew a two-goal lead in the final 8:38 before Artem Anisimov poked in a rebound in overtime to hand them a 4-3 defeat at Nationwide Arena.

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 - Less than eight minutes away from stealing a win from mighty Montreal, the Flyers had to settle for a point Tuesday night. The Flyers wasted Ray Emery's superb goaltending, Matt Read's first goal in 26 games, and a stellar effort by their penalty-killing units in a 2-1 overtime loss to the speedy Canadiens at the Bell Centre. But they did manage a point and inched to within eight points of Boston for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. They stretched their points streak to seven games (5-0-2)

WASHINGTON - An injury to Steve Mason - who has been playing as well as any NHL goalie recently - overshadowed the Flyers' gritty 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals Sunday at the Verizon Center. Mason will be out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury and will be examined by a doctor in Philadelphia on Monday. He did not accompany the team to Montreal and probably won't join the Flyers in any of the three remaining games on the trip, general manager Ron Hextall said. "He won't be coming to Montreal, so I guess it's that serious," Hextall said of Mason's condition.

WASHINGTON - As the Flyers packed their bags and skated out of the District with an improbable victory over the Capitals, one lingering thought was left behind: What if the Flyers' penalty kill hadn't reeked like a tire at the bottom of the Potomac River all season? The conversation on the bus yesterday, as the Flyers made their way for a flight to Montreal, may have been a lot more different. It may have even included chatter about the Stanley Cup playoffs. Fueled by a sterling, 5-for-6 performance on the penalty kill, the Flyers cooled off the Capitals yesterday with a 3-1 win, a rare reprieve for one of the league's worst special-teams units.

Looking rusty from a long layoff, the Flyers were fortunate to get a point Thursday night as their four-game winning streak ended with a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason made 28 saves and was the main reason the Flyers inched to within nine points of the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. "We left the extra point out there," Mason said after the Flyers completed a solid 4-0-1 homestand. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot at the end of the second period, giving up two goals off of mistakes.
