On the days, separated by seven months, that they promoted Craig Berube to head coach and Ron Hextall to general manager, the Flyers framed each announcement in the manner in which they conduct so much of their daily business - with a reverence for their past that bordered on the pathological. Berube and Hextall had been teammates with the Flyers a generation earlier, and both had worked for the organization after their playing careers had ended. Ed Snider, the Flyers' team chairman, and Paul Holmgren, the team's president, flanked Berube at the first news conference and Hextall at the second, and the stories and anecdotes from the old days flowed like foamy Molson from a just-tapped keg. That was the nostalgic veneer and implicit message of each image: that Chief and Hexy were Flyers once and Flyers forever, and they would stay true to the organization's core principles and practices.

Flyers forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier were added to Canada's roster Thursday for the IIHF world championships in Prague, Czech Republic. They will join teammate Claude Giroux on Team Canada, which starts play May 1 against Latvia. Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins withdrew from Team Canada because his fractured right foot needs more time to heal. - Sam Carchidi

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall wants to add some pieces to a team that finished 33-31-18 and 14 points out of the final Eastern Conference playoff spot this season. "I'd like to find an upgrade on defense, whether it be a free agent or whatever," he said during a season-ending news conference Wednesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "I'd like to find a skilled forward. That's my wish list. Free agency, trade . . . we'll look at that. " The free-agent market is rather thin, and it includes wingers Matt Beleskey (Anaheim)

So what went wrong this season and where do the Flyers go from here? The first part of the question is the easiest to answer: The Flyers didn't get enough secondary scoring, struggled mightily in close games, and couldn't find a way to win on the road. That's the abbreviated version on why the Flyers finished 33-31-18, missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, and wasted career years by right winger Jake Voracek (81 points) and goalie Steve Mason (.928 save percentage)

AS MUCH AS just about anyone, Phantoms coach Terry Murray has a Flyers logo tattooed on his butt. The Flyers' coach in the 1997 Stanley Cup final enjoyed stops in Florida, Washington and Los Angeles, but he's always made it back to his first home as a player - as a scout, assistant coach or minor league mentor. Murray should be forgiven if he is rooting for the Flyers to lose today in their meaningless season finale. That would mean his older brother, Bryan, can officially resume the chase of that elusive first Stanley Cup next week.

The Flyers continued to play down to their competition Thursday night. They suffered their 12th straight loss in games against teams not in a playoff spot, dropping a sleep-inducing 3-1 decision to Carolina at the Wells Fargo Center. "The intensity is not as high as when we play good teams," said Claude Giroux, who hit the post with 52 seconds left. "Maybe it's preparation. I'm not too sure it is, but we need to figure it out. " They will have all summer to do so. The season ends Saturday afternoon against visiting Ottawa, which needs one point to clinch a playoff spot.

The Flyers gave away toasters, blenders, refrigerators, and other assorted prizes on fan appreciation night at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday. As an added bonus, they gave their fans their first victory over the New York Islanders this season. In a wild finish that saw three goals scored in the final 1 minute, 44 seconds, Brayden Schenn won it by firing a shot from above the left circle that somehow beat goalie Jaroslav Halak with 2.1 seconds left, giving the Flyers a crazy 5-4 win over the dazed Isles.

FIGURE THIS one out: Brayden Schenn has accumulated nearly 15 percent of his entire season's point total in the last three games. In the penultimate week of a non-playoff season. Add his recent performance to the list of perplexing items about this Flyers team, up there with the disparaging road record (10-20-11), Steve Mason's win total (17) despite a franchise-record save percentage (.929), and Craig Berube's depth charts. Schenn, 23, tied for the league lead in scoring last week with six points - three goals and three assists - in the Flyers' three games (2-0-1)

THE FIRE didn't need to be stoked. As the seconds ticked off the clock on the Flyers' win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, the two teams were jawing and Ryan White remembered what he heard. "They were chirping," White said. "Just after the game, saying that they're going to the playoffs . . . saying that we're going to be done in a week. Of course we are. They had a couple stumbles this week. It was nice to put another 'L' in their cup. " For the Flyers, yesterday was their Stanley Cup playoffs.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.
