CRAIG BERUBE acknowledged he does not lose sleep over the shootout - despite the fact that his club has given up more points to opponents through breakaways than any other team since 2005. "I don't think about it," Berube said yesterday. "For me to stress over it, for me to stress my team over it, it doesn't do anything. " Stress might not be good, but two wins (of any kind) instead of two more shootout losses through the first few games would have relieved a lot of his team's mental burden.

ON A SOLEMN DAY usually reserved for locker cleanout and one last team excursion to Atlantic City to drown a long season, Claude Giroux did one better yesterday. Giroux earned himself a trip to Las Vegas for the NHL Awards. The Flyers' captain was announced as one of three finalists for the Hart Trophy, awarded to the NHL's most valuable player, along with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf. The winner will be announced June 24 at the Wynn Las Vegas. "To be nominated is a great honor," Giroux said in a statement.

Give the Flyers credit for gutting out a tense, 2-1 win over the speedier New York Rangers on Friday. Goalie Steve Mason, rust-free despite getting his first start in 13 days, was better than anyone could have expected after the long layoff, and the special teams were superb, enabling the Flyers to even the intriguing series at two games apiece. Now, as the series switches from Broad Street to Broadway on Sunday afternoon, the Flyers shouldn't get caught up in the euphoria of their Game 4 win. Fact is, they need to play much better than they did Friday if they are going to win what has turned into a three-game tug-of-war.

NEW YORK - It was the best season no one talked about. Perhaps because it is expected with a player of his stature and skill, Sidney Crosby posted the NHL's third 100-point season since 2010, and even the most hardcore hockey observers did little more than shrug their shoulders. Free of drama or intrigue, adding to the malaise, Crosby had the scoring race locked up in December. This was Crosby's fifth career 100-point season in 9 years in the league. How impressive was it?

PITTSBURGH - If the Flyers are going to make a Stanley Cup playoff run, they will have to end a puzzling late-season trend: fizzling in the third period. It's puzzling because the Flyers have been outstanding in the third period during most of the season; they have a club-record 11 wins in games in which they trailed in the final period. But in the last five games, they have been outscored, 11-3, in the last 20 minutes. That's the main reason they have fallen out of the battle for second place in the Metropolitan Division, guaranteeing they will start next week's playoffs on the road.

PRAISE FROM around the hockey world has been heaped on Sean Couturier over the past week. Rightfully so, after the Flyers held Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews to a combined one assist in three consecutive outings. Couturier had Crosby, the NHL's runaway points leader, so frustrated at one point in Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon that "Sid the Kid" was willing to throw down the gloves for his first fight in four regular seasons. Far less attention has been paid to Couturier's linemate, Matt Read - who added three goals in the weekend set against the Penguins.

PITTSBURGH - The ending was so Flyers-Penguins. On a play that was very much offside, except in the eyes of the linesman, the Penguins' Sidney Crosby came streaking in and, with about a second left, managed to reach around Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann and bang a backhand off the goal post. Thus was a 4-3 victory preserved for the Flyers, leaving goaltender Steve Mason in a good enough humor to muse on Sid and the puck and the post, saying, "I think that's all I gave him, though.

PITTSBURGH - With the Flyers protecting a one-goal lead in the final frantic seconds Sunday afternoon, goalie Steve Mason tried desperately to scramble back into position as Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby came crashing toward the net and put a shot off the right post. "I think that's all I gave him," Mason cracked after the Flyers escaped with a 4-3 victory at the Consol Energy Center, completing a weekend sweep of the injury-ravaged Penguins. Mason kidded that the post was "part of the equipment.

Unlike most Flyers-Penguins games, Saturday afternoon's matchup was devoid of any drama. The Flyers weren't complaining. They dominated from the opening faceoff and coasted to a 4-0 victory over their archrivals in front of a loud, sellout crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. Matt Read scored two goals, Sean Couturier shut down Sidney Crosby, and Steve Mason collected his fourth shutout of the season as the Flyers remained in fourth place in the Metropolitan Division. "Some games, there's ups and downs," Vinny Lecavalier said after notching his 15th goal, "but I felt we played with the momentum for 60 minutes.
