The Flyers' much-maligned defense played one of its strongest games of the season Thursday, not allowing San Jose much offensive-zone time after the first period. But it wasn't enough because the Flyers' offense came up short. Again. Melker Karlsson scored on a two-on-one with 1 minute, 15 seconds left in overtime as the Sharks outlasted the Flyers, 1-0, at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers' penalty kill was excellent, stopping all four San Jose power plays and allowing a total of just two shots in 7:26.

THROUGHOUT HIS first season as an NHL coach, Dave Hakstol has said injuries are part of the game and directly reflect part of his job in making line combinations and defensive pairings. He said recently he expects to deal with injuries in some capacity all season. And the last couple of days of injury news for the Flyers seem to make that a likely occurrence. Taking all that into consideration, it was still a bit of a surprise to see Brayden Schenn skating with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek in practice Monday.

GENERAL MANAGER Ron Hextall was candid during his first time speaking with the media following the Flyers' road trip last week. After getting the injury updates out of the way, Hextall was pressed on how he thought the Flyers were playing 15 games into Dave Hakstol's first season behind the bench. He spoke about the lack of effort exerted in recent games, something that caused Hakstol to put the Flyers up to their most difficult, physical practice since training camp on Wednesday.

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, the Flyers' fourth-line center and a key member of their penalty kill, took part in the morning skate Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center and may be able to return to the lineup later this week. "It all depends on how many full practices I get. I hadn't practiced on the ice for 10 days, and then I got a 30-minute skate [Monday]," Bellemare said Tuesday. "Today was the first game-like practice, but it was a pregame skate - no contact, nothing. I need to get some of those.

As the final buzzer sounded Tuesday, what was left of the Wells Fargo Center crowd serenaded the Flyers with loud boos as they skated to the locker room. It was well-deserved. Colorado 4, Flyers 0. The Flyers had talked about bringing momentum home from a nice win Saturday in Winnipeg that ended a 1-3-1 road trip, but apparently, they left it in customs. "We're embarrassed. They're probably embarrassed," Flyers winger Ryan White said when asked about the boos. The Avalanche, who began the night as the Western Conference's worst team, finished with a 40-25 shots advantage and skated circles around the Flyers.

CALGARY, Alberta - Evgeny Medvedev's upper-body injury is not serious, and the Flyers defenseman is not expected to miss much more time. Medvedev was examined in Philadelphia on Wednesday and missed the game Thursday in Calgary. General manager Ron Hextall said he wasn't sure whether Medvedev would be able to join the team for the game Saturday in Winnipeg. "I'd say he's day to day, but maybe two days is more accurate," Hextall said Thursday morning. Couturier returns Second-line center Sean Couturier returned to the lineup against Johnny Gaudreau and the Flames.

CALGARY, Alberta - The Flyers got second-line center Sean Couturier back into the lineup Thursday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome, but it didn't stop their losing streak. Calgary 2, Flyers 1. Mikael Backlund scored on a rebound with 4 minutes, 25 seconds left in overtime as the Flames won for just the second time in their last seven games. The puck bounced off Backlund's body after Michal Neuvirth stopped Johnny Gaudreau's shot. It was the sixth straight loss for the Flyers, who have lost all four games on a road trip that mercifully ends Saturday in Winnipeg.

CALGARY - The Flyers' defensive woes have been magnified over the last few weeks. It hasn't helped they're struggling to put pucks in the net themselves, but they've given up too many shots and have been putting too much pressure on their goaltenders. They've also had trouble staying out of the penalty box, and their penalty-killing hasn't been all that great. They got a little help Thursday night, when Sean Couturier returned to the lineup after missing six games with a concussion he suffered on Oct. 21 in Boston.

EDMONTON - When the doors opened to the Flyers' locker room and the media were allowed in following Tuesday night's 4-2 loss at Rexall Place, the room was expectantly subdued. The only sounds were of frustration. A visibly irritated Michal Neuvirth let out a subtle grunt when he walked by reporters before speaking to them a few minutes later. The Flyers' backup goalie had done all he could, stopping 45 shots. He then seemed to save some of his words when answering postgame questions.

CALGARY, Alberta - Right winger Wayne Simmonds walked into the Flyers locker room after their latest loss Tuesday and you could almost see the smoke coming out of his ears. Simmonds was incensed at how the Flyers had turned pucks over, at how they couldn't generate any offensive continuity, at how they had allowed the Edmonton Oilers - a team with a 4-8 record and without rookie sensation Connor McDavid for the final 22 minutes or so - to control the third period and register a 4-2 victory.
