TAMPA, Fla. - Wiping the perspiration from preparation for Game 80 from his brow, Kimmo Timonen was asked by a reporter yesterday how he was feeling when a familiar voice piped up from an adjacent stall. "Old," best friend Scott Hartnell answered for him. Timonen laughed. But even he, one of the fiercest competitors, could not deny the ill effects of Father Time. "Once you get to 39, you do feel old sometimes," Timonen said. "But that's the truth. It's been a long year, with the Olympics and the travel and the time changes and everything, but that's passed.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Scott Hartnell is one of just four Flyers remaining from Steve Downie's first run with the club in 2008. To him, and others, it's been obvious that Downie wasn't himself the last month - or even the better part of this season. Normally outgoing as a practical joker in the dressing room, Downie has been quiet and reserved, bogged down by injuries contributing to a career-worst year. "He's usually a treat to be around, for sure," Hartnell said. "He's had some good days and bad days.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Winger Steve Downie returned to the lineup Tuesday night and tried to help the Flyers defeat Florida and clinch a playoff spot. Downie, who missed the last eight games with a head injury, replaced the suspended Zac Rinaldo. He played on the third line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read. When healthy, Downie has been on that line most of the season. "It's definitely exciting to be back in the groove of things," Downie said before the game. He added, "It might take a couple shifts to get the legs going, but hopefully the timing is there.

SUNRISE, Fla. - The team that had the worst start in franchise history clinched a playoff berth Tuesday night at the BB&T Center. Captain Claude Giroux, who guaranteed the Flyers would make the playoffs when they had a 1-7 record, scored a pair of goals, sparking a 5-2 victory over lowly Florida and assuring that they will be playing in the postseason after being spectators last year. "I just believed in this team," Giroux said of his early-season prediction. "Last year, not making the playoffs was unacceptable.

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.
