GLENDALE, Ariz. - Injured wingers Michael Raffl and Matt Read did not play Saturday night against Phoenix, causing coach Craig Berube to juggle his lines. Read, who was apparently hit in the head in Calgary, skated briefly in the morning practice but was not feeling well and left the ice. Raffl (concussion) skated and said he is almost ready to return. Both could be in the lineup Tuesday in New Jersey. "I felt good, actually. I didn't expect to feel that good," Raffl said.

With lowly Carolina visiting the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon, the Flyers have a juicy opportunity to increase their points streak to five games and pick up ground in the Metropolitan Division. No NHL team has fewer points than the Hurricanes (19), who have lost four straight and slipped to 8-17-3. The Flyers (10-13-5) are coming off one of their better all-around performances of the season, a 4-1 win over New Jersey on Thursday that started a four-game homestand.

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.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - Even 33 years later, when you walk into the Herb Brooks Arena, site of Team USA's epic hockey upset of the Soviet Union en route to Olympic gold, you feel your goose bumps rise. You look around at the Olympic flags, the signs that commemorate the victory, the photos of the shaggy-haired kids who created what Sports Illustrated labeled the greatest sporting event in the 20th century, and Al Michaels' voice pops into your brain. Do you believe in miracles?

The Flyers got some positive news on the injury front Monday: Andrew MacDonald and Luke Schenn, defensemen who will help their sagging penalty-killing unit, were upgraded to "day to day," and there is a possibility they will play Wednesday against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Both practiced Monday in Voorhees. If they don't play Wednesday, they could return Thursday against visiting Minnesota. "They need practice," coach Craig Berube said. Schenn, who injured his left shoulder when hit by Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon on Nov. 8, said "every day is getting a lot better.

Defenseman Nick Grossmann, who has missed the last four games with head and shoulder injuries, may return to action Tuesday when the Flyers host his former team, the Dallas Stars. "There's an outside chance," said general manager Ron Hextall, noting that Grossmann skated at the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees on Monday. Before trading Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn, the Flyers were overloaded with defensemen. But their blue line is thin because of injuries to Grossmann and Michael Del Zotto, who will miss about another week.

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.

Ron Hextall, named the seventh general manager in Flyers history on Wednesday, called it "my dream job. " A former standout goalie with the Flyers who also was known for his brawling style, Hextall replaced Paul Holmgren, who stepped aside and was promoted to club president. "I've got a special feeling about this organization and I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be sitting here," Hextall said during a news conference Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. "I'll do the best job I can, and I'll work hard to reach the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia.

The Flyers' much-maligned defense has played better lately, but their offense has not responded, causing the team to fall out of the playoff race. "We're not finishing, not executing - especially me," said second-line center Sean Couturier after Wednesday's practice in Voorhees. "I've been having a lot of quality scoring chances lately and haven't been finishing. . . . I think all year, we've been through stretches where we're not executing, we're not finishing. It's not always about competing.

OTTAWA - One is the son of a military man and someone who lived all over North America during his formative years. The other is the son of a former NHL player and someone who was a certified rink rat - always trailing after his dad - as a youngster. But the different career paths of speedy winger Matt Read - he's the son of the military lifer - and unflappable center Sean Couturier intersected with the Flyers this season and took them to Ottawa this weekend, where they were recognized as two of the NHL's elite rookies.
