FOR ABOUT a week in consecutive summers, Michael Parks found himself at a Flyers' prospect development camp in Voorhees, N.J. There, at the Skate Zone, he went through drills alongside other NHL hopefuls like Sean Couturier, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn, guys who these days don the orange and black at the Wells Fargo Center. Parks got a brief tour but never the opportunity to skate at the Flyers' arena. Until this week, that is, when he takes the ice for the University of North Dakota on college hockey's premier stage.

SEAN COUTURIER began growing his caveman-like orange beard back in early December - well before the Flyers had popped up on the playoff radar. Since early December, right around the time he put his razor away, the Flyers have gone on a 28-16-7 run to make believers out of most of the Eastern Conference. Heading into last night's matchup with the Sabres, Couturier thought it was time for a change. The magic in his "playoff" beard - since just about every game for the Flyers since December has had playoff implications after their 4-10-1 start - had apparently run dry. His team was 1-4-2 in the previous seven games.

The Flyers can exhale. Finally. Sparked by Brayden Schenn's two goals and Mark Streit's three assists, they ended a four-game losing streak Sunday by cruising past the woeful Buffalo Sabres, 5-2, at the Wells Fargo Center and moving to within two points of the second-place New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers, who stayed two points ahead of fourth-place Columbus, have four games left; the Rangers have three. "The big thing is we stuck to team defense, especially the first two periods, and didn't give them much," Schenn said after he became the team's sixth 20-goal scorer.

Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo will have a hearing with the NHL and could be suspended for a hit to the head of Buffalo rookie Chad Ruhwedel with 15 minutes, 31 seconds remaining Sunday night. "I shouldn't have done it," Rinaldo said after the Flyers whipped the Sabres, 5-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're up, 4-0, and there was no need for it, but it is what it is. It's part of the game. " Ruhwedel suffered a concussion, which will not help Rinaldo's cause with the league. "I had a lot of speed going at him," said Rinaldo, who scored his second goal of the season earlier in the game.

After he was named the game's second star Thursday night, former Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky skated onto the Wells Fargo Center ice, waved his stick to the fans, and saluted them by clapping his hands and pointing. "I appreciate this organization and the fans - it was a huge two years here for me," Bobrovsky said after leading close-checking Columbus to a critical 2-0 win over the Flyers. "I wanted to thank them. " Since the Flyers sent him to Columbus two seasons ago, Bobrovsky has won the Vezina Trophy as the league's top goalie and starred for Russia in this year's Olympics.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

THE QUESTION, posed last week on "Philly Sports Talk," was simple in nature. Who is more responsible for the Flyers' success: Craig Berube or Claude Giroux? Off the cuff, my choice was Giroux. The thought: Coaches don't score goals - and it isn't often in professional hockey that coaches win games. Giroux has scored more points - 54 in his last 39 games - than any player in the league since early December. With his name percolating in the race to join Sidney Crosby as a Hart Trophy finalist, Giroux has played out of his mind over the last few months to turn the Flyers from a playoff joke to a playoff lock.

PRAISE FROM around the hockey world has been heaped on Sean Couturier over the past week. Rightfully so, after the Flyers held Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews to a combined one assist in three consecutive outings. Couturier had Crosby, the NHL's runaway points leader, so frustrated at one point in Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon that "Sid the Kid" was willing to throw down the gloves for his first fight in four regular seasons. Far less attention has been paid to Couturier's linemate, Matt Read - who added three goals in the weekend set against the Penguins.

With his shaggy, mountain-man beard, the Flyers' Sean Couturier looks and fits the part: a menacing defender who, more frequently than not, shuts down some of the NHL's top centers. Or, as someone on Twitter so aptly called him: the Wolf of Broad Street. Couturier, 21, deserves consideration for the Selke Trophy, given to the league's best defensive forward. He won't come close to winning it because the award has morphed into a reward for a forward who is dominating both ways, and Couturier's offense is still in the growing stages.

After sitting out Tuesday for the first time in the last nine games, Flyers goalie Steve Mason returned to the net and looked refreshed and in control Thursday night. "He was a rock for us back there tonight," defenseman Braydon Coburn said after Mason made 33 saves - many of them spectacular - and winger Wayne Simmonds scored two goals as the Flyers outlasted the Dallas Stars, 4-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, second in the Metropolitan Division, opened a three-point lead on the New York Rangers (and remained three points ahead of Columbus)
