  Flyers Notes Sergei Bobrovsky is being a good soldier. After being the Flyers' primary goalie and having a very strong rookie season in 2010-11, Bobrovsky is now Ilya Bryzgalov 's understudy. There is a chance Bobrovsky will get his first start of the season Tuesday night in Ottawa. Coach Peter Laviolette , who used Bryzgalov in the first four games (3-0-1), said he wouldn't announce his decision until the morning skate. "I'm ready for every game," Bobrovsky said.

The Flyers have made some major trades in recent years - dealing Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and James van Riemsdyk, among others - but a less talked-about move may come back to haunt them. When general manager Paul Holmgren sent backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks last June, not many eyebrows were raised. Bobrovsky had seen little time behind Ilya Bryzgalov. But with the strike-shortened season more than halfway over, Bobrovsky has emerged as the NHL's hottest goaltender.

PITTSBURGH - The Flyers have traded backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks. The Flyers confirmed they will receive Columbus' 45th and 117th picks this year and a fourth-rounder next year. Before the deal, the Flyers had no second-round picks in this year's draft. Bobrovsky, 23, had an impressive rookie season, but struggled in his sophomore year -- going 14-10-2 with an .899 save percentage and a 3.02 goals-against average. He never seemed comfortable as Ilya Bryzgalov's backup.

Goalies Steve Mason and Sergei Bobrovsky will oppose their former teams Thursday, adding to the intrigue surrounding the critical matchup between the Flyers and Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets are fighting for their playoff lives and figure to bring an air of desperation to the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, third in the Metropolitan Division, haven't clinched a playoff spot, but they have a four-point lead over the fourth-place Blue Jackets. Both teams have seven games remaining.

Peter Laviolette hasn't named his primary playoff goalie, but if you read between the lines, the Flyers coach is giving the job to 22-year-old rookie Sergei Bobrovsky. Acknowledging Bobrovsky has no playoff experience, Laviolette said the Russian goalie's play in big regular-season games has been his training ground. "They're not the playoffs, but that's where we're at right now," Laviolette said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. "There have been lots of young goalies that have come in and performed well in the playoffs.

Score: Boston 5, Flyers 1 How it happened: Johnny Boychuk blasted a slap shot from the right point that redirected over the left shoulder of Sergei Bobrovsky at 2:42 of the third period to regain the lead after Kris Versteeg had tied the game at 1 in the second. The Bruins outshot the Flyers, 13-6, in the first period of a must-win game for the visitors. The Flyers once again lacked the jump at the start they vowed to have, as was the case in their 5-1 humilation Wednesday night.

Michal Neuvirth could see this question coming after Game 2, as he sat next to Steve Mason in the visiting locker room at the Verizon Center, the two of them putting forks to paper plates loaded with grilled chicken and pasta with red sauce. A couple of hours earlier, a puck had completed a 101-foot journey by sliding through Mason's legs and into the net for a stunning, freakish goal in a Flyers loss to the Capitals, and Neuvirth didn't even have to raise his head to issue a preemptive two-word response to anyone who wanted a postgame comment from him. "No way," he said, and kept on digging into his dinner.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - If the Flyers miss the playoffs, Tuesday's late-game collapse may be the reason. Boone Jenner's goal in the fifth round of the shootout gave Columbus a stunning 3-2 win at Nationwide Arena. Columbus scored two goals in the final 1 minute, 4 seconds - both with goalie Sergei Bobrovsky pulled for an extra skater - to tie the score at 2-2 and send it into overtime. "We gave away the extra point," said goalie Steve Mason, who made a career-high 51 saves and nearly stole a win on a night when most of his teammates seemed a step slow.

The Flyers have recently discovered a way to win close games. "I think it is just trusting each other out there and being more confident," center Sean Couturier said. "We are getting more comfortable in those games. We aren't getting as frustrated as maybe we used to. When we're composed and in control of ourselves, we play better. " Excluding empty-netters that made the final margin a two-goal difference, the Flyers are 6-2 in one-goal games since Nov. 27. Overall, they will take a 7-2-1 run into Saturday night's game in Columbus, a team that handed them a 4-1 loss Dec. 5. "Lately, we are trusting each other, playing the system the right way and we're getting good results," said Couturier, whose surging team (14-12-6)

NEWARK, N.J. - Since being promoted from the Phantoms, Nick Cousins has centered an effective fourth line for the Flyers. The Flyers entered Friday 3-0 since Cousins was recalled. "He's a smart two-way center, and he's reliable in a lot of the little areas of the game," coach Dave Hakstol said before the Flyers played in New Jersey on Friday. "He's a young guy, but he's pretty mature as a centerman in terms of his positioning, both with and without the puck. I think that level of certainty adds value.

MONTREAL - The player who calls himself Stolie the Goalie on Twitter, Anthony Stolarz, took part in the Flyers' morning skate Tuesday and still couldn't believe he was in the NHL. "It's definitely a surreal moment for me," Stolarz said, "and one of the prouder moments of my life. " After Lehigh Valley's 5-4 win in Hershey on Sunday, Stolarz said he thought it was a joke when some of his teammates told him he was being called up by the Flyers. He realized it was official when Phantoms coach Terry Murray informed him he was being promoted because of Steve Mason's latest injury.

COLUMBUS - Less than a minute on the game clock separated the Flyers from another loss devoid of consistent offensive production. Worse yet for the orange and black, if the score through 59 minutes had stood, the decisive goal would have belonged to former Flyer Scott Hartnell. But with 55.3 seconds left, the puck squirted through the pads of Sergei Bobrovsky. Brayden Schenn was rewarded his second goal of the evening. The Flyers ensured themselves that they would steal at least a point.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Considering they managed little offensive-zone time and had just 19 shots in regulation, the Flyers should feel fortunate to get one point with a 3-2 overtime loss to Columbus Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.   "It's a satisfying point, but it's a lucky point, too," said Brayden Schenn, who tied the game with 55.5 seconds remaining in regulation by scoring his second goal of the night. "It was a tough game from our standpoint. We didn't generate a whole lot. We weren't great in our own end, and we were lucky to squeeze it into overtime.

AFTER DROPPING four straight games in which his team never had a lead, Craig Berube went back to the drawing board and threw an unconventional version of an 18-skater lineup against divisional foe Columbus in Saturday night's 4-2 win. With defenseman Michael Del Zotto returning to the lineup after missing Thursday's game with a lower-body injury, the second-year coach decided to employ seven defensemen and 11 forwards for the first time this season....

Rookie Scott Laughton has been back with the Flyers for just the last two games, but he is starting to turn heads. "I thought Laughton played really well," coach Craig Berube said after the 20-year-old center played 10 minutes and 53 seconds in the Flyers' gut-wrenching, 3-2 loss to Minnesota on Thursday. "He skated, competed, and had a heavy stick out there. " "He was outstanding," winger Jake Voracek said, adding that Laughton played strong defense and had a knack for breaking up plays with a quick stick.

EVER THE PEST, Scott Hartnell glided up the red line during warmups and playfully stole the puck from former teammate Claude Giroux. He also lofted a shot toward Steve Mason - which in the old days might have sparked an Ed Hospodar-style pregame donnybrook. Anything goes, Hartnell figured, if his antics could take the Flyers off their game and help Columbus rewrite a franchise record book filled with dubious marks. Whatever Hartnell did, it worked. The sluggish Flyers were held without an even-strength goal and fell to a Columbus roster littered with AHL fill-ins by a 4-3 score last night.
