Nick Schultz, arguably the Flyers' steadiest defenseman this season, hadn't scored a goal since the spring of 2013. He was due. So it was understandable that Schultz was overjoyed after he capitalized on Petr Straka's hard work - the rookie left winger pounded away for three rapid-fire shots from in front - and scored on a rebound early in the second period Thursday. Schultz's goal snapped a 2-2 tie and sparked the Flyers to their third straight victory, a 5-2 win over Winnipeg at the Wells Fargo Center.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The Flyers and New York Islanders have been chasing their glory days for decades, and one of them has finally put together a team that is a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Hello, Islanders. The Flyers, setting the tone by allowing the first goal for the ninth time in 10 games, dropped a 7-4 decision to the speedy, upstart Islanders at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Monday afternoon. "We made too many mistakes and left the goalie hung out to dry," said former Islanders defenseman Mark Streit, who scored the Flyers' first goal.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Long before leaks in the roof, the unmistakable stench in the decrepit visiting locker room, and the dot-matrix scoreboard the Islanders swore was hanging by a thread, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum had a mystique about it the first day Craig Berube set foot in there on Jan. 3, 1989. The Islanders were less than 6 years removed from four consecutive Stanley Cups. "I think when you came in here, it was just the aura of the building and the team at the time," Berube said.

The Flyers haven't been very good this season on the front end of back-to-back games. They haven't been much better on the back end. After another spotty performance, this is a team clearly at wits' end. The Flyers were swept in back-to-back games for the seventh time this season in a 4-0 loss Thursday to the Vancouver Canucks at the Wells Fargo Center. That came on the heels of a 1-0 loss Wednesday in Washington. The Flyers are 1-8 in the first game of a back-to-back and 2-6-1 in the second.

Flyers linemates Jake Voracek, who leads the NHL with 50 points, and Claude Giroux were named to the league's all-star team Saturday. The game will be played Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio, where Voracek spent the first three seasons of his career. He was dealt to the Flyers in 2011 for Jeff Carter and a first-round draft pick that produced Sean Couturier and a third-rounder that turned out to be Nick Cousins. Voracek, a 25-year-old right winger, will be making his first appearance in an All-Star Game.

The Flyers lost more than a hockey game Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. A lot more. They lost the services of talented goalie Steve Mason for an undetermined amount of time. Mason, who took the league's fourth-best save percentage (.933) in even-strength situations into the game, suffered an apparent injury to his right knee in the opening period of the Flyers' 3-1 loss to the tight-checking Boston Bruins. The Flyers would say only that Mason suffered a lower-body injury and would be reevaluated Sunday.

Earlier this week, a reporter told Flyers general manager Ron Hextall he looked glum as he walked into the pressroom and was about to start a news conference. "We're in 25th place in the league," Hextall replied, "and I'm supposed to come in here . . . cheery?" Hextall was in a better mood Thursday after watching the Flyers win their second straight, a hard-earned, 3-2 overtime victory over a Washington team that had lost just once in regulation in its previous 15 games. With a sellout crowd watching at the Wells Fargo Center, Jake Voracek's one-timer from the high slot deflected off a Washington player and into the net, giving the Flyers the dramatic win. "I got a lucky bounce, but it was a big goal," Voracek said of his power-play tally.

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.

WITH RANDY CARLYLE jettisoned in Toronto, Craig Berube was installed as the odds-on favorite yesterday by a Las Vegas oddsmaker to be the next NHL coach fired. You wouldn't get even money on that bet, coming in at 4-11. Peter Laviolette was once held in equally high regard by the bookmakers and, well, those tickets were cashed three games into last season. Ho-hum. For Berube, it was just another Wednesday. He has heard all the rumors before. He's been around the Flyers since 1986 and witnessed six head-coaching regimes take hold.

RON HEXTALL said yesterday he is not happy with the performance of the Flyers, a team he believes is strong enough to be a playoff performer "on paper. " As it stands now, the Flyers have a whopping 2.8 percent shot to make the Stanley Cup playoffs, using probabilities based on current games played by SportsClubStats.com. They would need a miraculous 27-11-5 run just for a 50-50 shot to get in. Right now, though, Hextall said he is not willing to overhaul his roster. The Flyers general manager is not interested in calling up young players from the AHL Phantoms to see what they can do. And he is also not interested in pinning any of the blame on coach Craig Berube.
