NEW YORK - The best goaltender on the ice last night wore orange and black. There's your silver lining in a gruesome, 4-1 Game 1 loss to the New York Rangers, a defeat that seemed to suggest that this nine-game losing streak in Madison Square Garden is more about personnel than coincidence. Ray Emery was supposed to be the big difference between the teams. They had an Olympic goalie. You had a rebuilt 31-year-old backup between your pipes. But Ray was not the problem. The problem was that besides him, there wasn't a single player wearing that jersey who was better than the player in the same role wearing blue.

Cal Heeter made a forgettable NHL debut Sunday as the Flyers ended their regular season with a 6-5 shootout loss to Carolina at the Wells Fargo Center. But in more important goaltender news, the Flyers (42-30-10) believe Steve Mason, who was injured in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win in Pittsburgh, will be able to start Game 1 of the first-round playoff series against New York on Thursday. "He's doing better," coach Craig Berube said after the Flyers finished with 94 points, two behind the second-place Rangers in the Metropolitan Division.

If the regular season is a barometer, the Flyers and New York Rangers will have a tight-checking, low-scoring series when they meet in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Amtrak series starts with games Thursday and Easter Sunday in New York. The Rangers have the stronger defense, the Flyers have the better attack. "We don't have to worry as much about them as ourselves," Flyers winger Matt Read said after scoring his 22d goal in a season-ending 6-5 shootout loss to Carolina on Sunday.

It was a silly, impulsive mistake, one made all the sillier because Scott Hartnell committed it in a game that meant so little. He'd gotten himself in a tussle with the Carolina Hurricanes' Brett Bellemore in the third period Sunday. The Flyers had clinched a playoff spot, knew that their first-round opponent would be the New York Rangers, and understood they had nothing to gain and much to lose in their regular-season finale. They were on their way to a 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes, and, well, at least there were 10 goals and a shootout to entertain everyone.

FIVE YEARS AGO, a wrecking ball tore a hole through the brick and mortar of the Spectrum - tearing down nearly 40 years worth of dusty Flyers and Sixers memories. On the periphery, the demolition of America's Showplace left the Flyers' top minor league affiliate in need of a new home after an impressive 13-year run across the street from the big club. That wrecking ball left the Phantoms' franchise in shambles. They've yet to recover. The Phantoms will play their final home game in Glens Falls, N.Y., this Friday to mercifully end the most embarrassing era of minor league production in the Flyers' 47-year history.

PITTSBURGH - In the postgame showers, Hal Gill, the hulking Flyers defenseman who played Saturday for the first time since Dec. 21, was singing "New York, New York. " The Flyers are headed to Broadway. Continuing their uncanny dominance in Pittsburgh, the Flyers scored a wild, 4-3 overtime win over the Penguins at the Consol Energy Center on Saturday afternoon, ensuring that they will face the New York Rangers in the playoffs. But the victory, which clinched third place in the Metropolitan Division, was tempered by an injury to goalie Steve Mason, who left the game after the second period with what the Flyers called an upper-body injury.

TAMPA, Fla. - Anders Lindback didn't play like a backup. The 6-foot-6 Tampa Bay goalie played more like Ken Dryden in his prime, making 34 saves and leading the Lightning to a 4-2 win over the Flyers at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Thursday night. "We had tons of chances, and it seemed he was pulling saves out of his butt," Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said. The loss, coupled with the Rangers' 2-1 escape over Buffalo, enabled New York to clinch second place in the Metropolitan Division.

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.
