The Flyers continued to retool for the future early Monday morning, sending veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn to Tampa Bay for injured defenseman Radko Gudas and first- and third-round draft picks in June. The deal was completed on the last day of the trade deadline. "It was a little bit of a shock to wake up to that news," said Coburn, who spent seven-plus seasons with the Flyers and was their longest-tenured player. "There was a mix of tears and excitement in my house. " "Braydon was a very good player for us for a long time, but we got a lot of assets coming back," coach Craig Berube said.

In three previous games against the New York Rangers this season, the Flyers were 0-3 and were outscored by 10-2. In their final regular-season meeting, the Flyers reversed course with the help of an unusual occurrence - a shorthanded goal. Former Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto scored the Flyers' second shorthanded goal of the season early in the third period of a 4-2 win over the Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night. That left the Flyers six points behind the Boston Bruins for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Long after most of his teammates filed out to the team bus, Mark Streit sat in a stall inside the Flyers' cramped locker room at PNC Arena after his shower. He conversed quietly with Braydon Coburn. Streit paused to knot his tie and tug on his suit jacket, but mostly shook his head in disgust. He was not alone. Two days after whittling the Bruins' edge on the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot down to two points, the bipolar Flyers fell, 4-1, to the 27th-place Hurricanes last night.

Goalie Steve Mason and defenseman Kimmo Timonen will be with the Flyers for their road trip, but that doesn't necessarily mean they will be in the lineup for those two games. Last week, Mason, who is making a comeback from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, did not rule out playing in Carolina on Tuesday or in Toronto on Thursday. "Tuesday, I would say no, and Thursday is not likely," general manager Ron Hextall said before the Flyers outlasted Washington, 3-2, Sunday afternoon.

WHEN CRAIG Berube replaced Peter Laviolette three games into the 2013-14 season, the Flyers were a mess. After failing to make the playoffs in the lockout-shortened previous season, they had lost their first three games of the new season and looked absolutely awful doing so. Paul Holmgren said it was a "gut" decision, canning a coach who had guided the team to a Stanley Cup finals appearance three seasons before. Owner Ed Snider said he had never seen his team have a worse preseason.

Put a fork in the Flyers. That's what most fans are probably thinking after the Flyers did the inexplicable Thursday night at the stunned Wells Fargo Center: They lost to a woeful Buffalo team that had just three wins in a little more than two months. Buffalo 3. Flyers 2. In a shootout. Brian Flynn scored the game-winner, giving the Sabres a 7-2 record in shootouts. The Flyers fell to 2-7 in shootouts. Buffalo, the NHL's worst team, entered the night with three wins since Dec. 16, going 3-21-2 in 26 games.

Ever since Flyers coach Craig Berube combined Wayne Simmonds with Matt Read and Sean Couturier, that line has thrived. Simmonds had been playing recently on a line with the since-demoted Scott Laughton and Ryan White until Berube made changes in a 3-1 Flyers win in Washington on Feb. 8. "I thought at times with the matchups and the way things were going, Wayne wasn't getting enough [chances]," Berube said Tuesday before the Flyers faced Columbus. "I always thought Wayne should be on that line with those guys.

BUFFALO - Michael Raffl says that he isn't quite 100 percent and that he is still getting his wind back after a long bout with pneumonia. On Sunday night, however, he breathed life into the Flyers' playoff hopes. Playing in his first game since Jan. 20, Raffl scored on a wraparound with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over hapless Buffalo at the First Niagara Center. The victory moved the Flyers to within five points of idle Boston for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot.

COLUMBUS - Barely 4 minutes had elapsed since the Civil War-replica cannon exploded, signaling an overtime win for the Blue Jackets. Claude Giroux was already out of his equipment. He angrily threw his sneakers at a stationary bike in the hallway before beginning his postgame exercise routine. For the second game in a row, the Flyers threw away a valuable point, coughing up a lead with under 10 minutes to play. On Tuesday night, it was Montreal. Last night, the Flyers blew a two-goal lead in the final 8:38 before Artem Anisimov poked in a rebound in overtime to hand them a 4-3 defeat at Nationwide Arena.

COLUMBUS - Technically, it was his 1,001st NHL game - but the Blue Jackets waited until last night to officially honor Scott Hartnell for hitting the millennium milestone against his former team. Before the game, Hartnell was presented with a silver stick, a Tiffany crystal, a shiny watch from his teammates and a commemorative painting depicting the three stops in his career: Nashville, Philadelphia and Columbus. His parents, Bill and Joy, joined him on the ice from Lloydminster, Alberta.
