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)

PITTSBURGH - Flyers forward Brayden Schenn has  been extremely inconsistent this season, stirring rumors that general manager Ron Hextall might put him on the trading block this summer.   But Schenn, who is just 23 despite playing in six NHL seasons, has also shown glimpses of dominance - such as his fourth two-goal performance of the season in Wednesday's 4-1 win in Pittsburgh - that make him such an intriguing player.   Is Schenn someone who is just scratching his potential and one of the Flyers' building blocks?

'THEY HAVEN'T produced this year like we wanted them to, for sure," Craig Berube was saying on Monday, referring to Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier. "Brayden ended up being a 20-goal scorer last year. We all thought that it was, not a given, but we thought that he'd be at 20 again. I thought Couturier would probably get to 20 this year, too. And they haven't. " Put aside the mess Berube made with Steve Mason for a minute. Forget the unnecessary controversy that was stirred up in the year the Flyers finally got consistent goaltending.

ASIDE FROM battling Sidney Crosby for the Art Ross Trophy, Jake Voracek will have one more thing to play for this spring: a gold medal on home ice at the World Championships. Once the Flyers wrap up their season next Saturday, Voracek and quite a few teammates will have a few weeks to prepare for the 16-team IIHF tournament in Prague and Ostrava, Czech Republic. The tournament runs May 1-17. "Trust me, I'd rather be in a playoff run, battling for the Cup," Voracek said. "But there's an opportunity to play for my country, especially at home.

In three previous games against the New York Rangers this season, the Flyers were 0-3 and were outscored by 10-2. In their final regular-season meeting, the Flyers reversed course with the help of an unusual occurrence - a shorthanded goal. Former Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto scored the Flyers' second shorthanded goal of the season early in the third period of a 4-2 win over the Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night. That left the Flyers six points behind the Boston Bruins for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.

NOW THAT the Flyers have been pronounced dead for the fifth time this season, one last, lingering question remains for Ron Hextall over the final 15 games. Where does Craig Berube fit in this mess? First, let's get Bloody Sunday out of the way. To be fair, Scotty Bowman wouldn't have been able to get the Flyers to regroup after Saturday's last-second debacle in Boston. Their collapse a day later against the Devils was human nature. Berube can't play for the players - he can only say as much as possible to try and avoid it. "I mentioned it, I talked about it," Berube said of the letdown.

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.

The Flyers gave away toasters, blenders, refrigerators, and other assorted prizes on fan appreciation night at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday. As an added bonus, they gave their fans their first victory over the New York Islanders this season. In a wild finish that saw three goals scored in the final 1 minute, 44 seconds, Brayden Schenn won it by firing a shot from above the left circle that somehow beat goalie Jaroslav Halak with 2.1 seconds left, giving the Flyers a crazy 5-4 win over the dazed Isles.

FIGURE THIS one out: Brayden Schenn has accumulated nearly 15 percent of his entire season's point total in the last three games. In the penultimate week of a non-playoff season. Add his recent performance to the list of perplexing items about this Flyers team, up there with the disparaging road record (10-20-11), Steve Mason's win total (17) despite a franchise-record save percentage (.929), and Craig Berube's depth charts. Schenn, 23, tied for the league lead in scoring last week with six points - three goals and three assists - in the Flyers' three games (2-0-1)

THE FIRE didn't need to be stoked. As the seconds ticked off the clock on the Flyers' win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, the two teams were jawing and Ryan White remembered what he heard. "They were chirping," White said. "Just after the game, saying that they're going to the playoffs . . . saying that we're going to be done in a week. Of course we are. They had a couple stumbles this week. It was nice to put another 'L' in their cup. " For the Flyers, yesterday was their Stanley Cup playoffs.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It seemed fitting that a small, somewhat lethargic crowd attended the Flyers' final road game of the season Saturday afternoon. The Flyers, after all, came up small - and played too much listless hockey - in their 41 road games. They dropped a 3-2 decision to Carolina in a shootout at PNC Arena and finished with a 10-20-11 road record. You have to go back to 1971-72 (7-25-7) to find a season in which the Flyers finished with fewer road victories. Chris Terry scored what proved to be the game-winner in the shootout.

PITTSBURGH - This is not an April Fools' Day joke: Flyers goalie Steve Mason recorded a road victory and Vinny Lecavalier scored a goal Wednesday night. Both were a long time in the making. The Flyers, with Brayden Schenn scoring a pair of goals, registered a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Consol Energy Center, their first road win since Feb. 15 in Buffalo. Lecavalier scored his first goal since Jan. 3, and Mason recorded just his second road victory this season.

Flyers center Sean Couturier knows he can help teammate Jake Voracek by shutting down Sidney Crosby when he's matched against the Penguins superstar Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. Entering Tuesday, Voracek was third in the NHL scoring race with 76 points, trailing Crosby (79) and the Islanders' John Tavares (77). "I just try to do my job and do whatever I can do to help the team win," said Couturier, a defensive specialist who is frequently matched against Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
