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 - 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?

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.

'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.

When the epitaph on the Flyers' frustrating season is written, it will read: Fell out of contention because they could not beat non-playoff teams late in the season . It happened again Saturday afternoon as San Jose, which will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2003, scored a 3-2 shootout win at the Wells Fargo Center. Brent Burns won it on a backhander in the fifth shootout round. The Flyers have lost 10 straight (0-6-4) against teams not in a playoff spot when they met. "I don't think we put enough pucks on the net today," said Jake Voracek, who had two assists but fell two points behind Sidney Crosby (78 points)

Wayne Simmonds' season-ending leg injury has had a ripple effect on the Flyers: Vinny Lecavalier has returned to the lineup and Ryan White has moved to the first power-play unit. In addition, defenseman Brandon Manning will replace the injured Andrew MacDonald (hand) and be paired with Carlo Colaiacovo when the Flyers host San Jose in a Saturday matinee. Lecavalier has been a healthy scratch 17 times, including the last three games, and will likely play the final seven games of the most frustrating season of his career.

THE BODIES are still warm. There are 2 more weeks, eight more games, and a summerlong autopsy to be performed on the rotting Flyers. How did we get here? How did this happen? Just 16 days ago, the Flyers were 15 seconds away from clawing within two points of Boston, making this last month of the season not only relevant but maybe even magical. Let's take a look back at 5 days that sunk the Flyers' season, in chronological order: 1. June 23, 2014: Scott Hartnell traded to Columbus in exchange for R.J. Umberger.

EDMONTON, Alberta - The countdown is underway to the end of another Flyers season without a Stanley Cup. The Flyers, Cup-less since 1975, have eight games left after Saturday's matchup in Edmonton, and they will miss the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. A year removed from an impressive 42-27-10 record under first-year coach Craig Berube - and a seven-game playoff loss to a New York Rangers team that reached the Stanley Cup Finals - the Flyers have regressed. They took a 29-29-15 record into Saturday and had lost eight straight road games.
