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)

The news shook Flyers center Pierre-Eduoard Bellemare to the core. Twelve people were killed Wednesday when masked gunmen attacked the Paris offices of a satirical news magazine that has published cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. "I woke up this morning to hear the news, and it seemed too crazy to be real," Bellemare, who was raised in Paris, said after the Flyers practiced in Voorhees on Wednesday. "I'm kind of eager to go home and see what's going on. It's all around the news, and what has happened is terrifying.

WHO KEEPS SENDING Comcast SportsNet's Sarah Baicker dinosaur T-shirts? Baicker certainly doesn't know. For the past couple of years, the Flyers reporter has received T-shirts with dinosaurs printed on them from anonymous senders. In the past year, the arrival of T-shirts has ramped up. During her recent birthday week alone, she got two Ts. She estimates she's gotten about 10 since they started arriving in the mail without prompting. The first one had a pink brontosaurus emblazoned on the front, but, for the most part, she receives Tyrannosaurus rex Ts. "People have learned [T-rexes]

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.

An impressive name was added to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall's list of coaching candidates Monday. San Jose coach Todd McLellan and the Sharks mutually parted ways, making him a major contender for the Flyers opening. McLellan, 47, a former Detroit assistant, will have a long line of suitors, including Buffalo and Toronto. Interestingly, when McLellan coaches Canada in the world championships in the Czech Republic next month, he will have three Flyers on his team: Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn, and Sean Couturier.

THE FUTURE of one of 14 NHL franchises will change with the drop of four pingpong balls tonight in Toronto. The Flyers just aren't holding their breath. In fact, the Flyers are not sending a representative to see the draft lottery be conducted, even though Connor McDavid is hockey's first runaway consensus No. 1 pick since Steven Stamkos in 2008. The draw will be announced as part of a "Hockey Night in Canada" broadcast, simulcast live on NBC, at 8 o'clock immediately preceding Game 2 of the Penguins/Rangers series.

VINNY LECAVALIER and R.J. Umberger got one coach fired. It will be fascinating to see how far they can erode the new coach's equity. Lecavalier signed with the Flyers in 2013, before general manager Ron Hextall got the job. Hextall replaced popular, inconsistent Scott Hartnell with Umberger. Lecavalier and Umberger occupied a whopping 14 percent of the Flyers' cap room this season. They occupied about 1 percent of the opposition's attention. They were disasters that first-time head coach Craig Berube was unable to solve in his first full season.

On the days, separated by seven months, that they promoted Craig Berube to head coach and Ron Hextall to general manager, the Flyers framed each announcement in the manner in which they conduct so much of their daily business - with a reverence for their past that bordered on the pathological. Berube and Hextall had been teammates with the Flyers a generation earlier, and both had worked for the organization after their playing careers had ended. Ed Snider, the Flyers' team chairman, and Paul Holmgren, the team's president, flanked Berube at the first news conference and Hextall at the second, and the stories and anecdotes from the old days flowed like foamy Molson from a just-tapped keg. That was the nostalgic veneer and implicit message of each image: that Chief and Hexy were Flyers once and Flyers forever, and they would stay true to the organization's core principles and practices.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall wants to add some pieces to a team that finished 33-31-18 and 14 points out of the final Eastern Conference playoff spot this season. "I'd like to find an upgrade on defense, whether it be a free agent or whatever," he said during a season-ending news conference Wednesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "I'd like to find a skilled forward. That's my wish list. Free agency, trade . . . we'll look at that. " The free-agent market is rather thin, and it includes wingers Matt Beleskey (Anaheim)

So what went wrong this season and where do the Flyers go from here? The first part of the question is the easiest to answer: The Flyers didn't get enough secondary scoring, struggled mightily in close games, and couldn't find a way to win on the road. That's the abbreviated version on why the Flyers finished 33-31-18, missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, and wasted career years by right winger Jake Voracek (81 points) and goalie Steve Mason (.928 save percentage)

AS MUCH AS just about anyone, Phantoms coach Terry Murray has a Flyers logo tattooed on his butt. The Flyers' coach in the 1997 Stanley Cup final enjoyed stops in Florida, Washington and Los Angeles, but he's always made it back to his first home as a player - as a scout, assistant coach or minor league mentor. Murray should be forgiven if he is rooting for the Flyers to lose today in their meaningless season finale. That would mean his older brother, Bryan, can officially resume the chase of that elusive first Stanley Cup next week.

The Flyers continued to play down to their competition Thursday night. They suffered their 12th straight loss in games against teams not in a playoff spot, dropping a sleep-inducing 3-1 decision to Carolina at the Wells Fargo Center. "The intensity is not as high as when we play good teams," said Claude Giroux, who hit the post with 52 seconds left. "Maybe it's preparation. I'm not too sure it is, but we need to figure it out. " They will have all summer to do so. The season ends Saturday afternoon against visiting Ottawa, which needs one point to clinch a playoff spot.
