After the Flyers beat the Colorado Avalanche last Thursday, team chairman Ed Snider said something that seemed to strike at the heart of how his franchise has operated for generations. The victory was one of five for the Flyers' in their final six games before the Olympic break, and it inspired Snider to praise his team in a gush of enthusiasm. "I love where we are right now," he told reporters. "We're playing extremely well. I'm excited about the team. I think our goaltending is outstanding.

THE FLYERS' five Olympians arrived in Russia this morning with their heads held high. They traded in their Flyers equipment bags for ones adorning the familiar Swiss crest or Finnish flag and didn't hear any snickers or jokes. Once the laughingstock of the NHL, firing their coach three games into this season, the Flyers have been impressive. How impressive? If you were to look at their 30-23-6 record and third seed in the Metropolitan Division, you'd say, 'Eh, not that great.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Maybe it's a coincidence, but Steve Mason's game has gotten back on track ever since he had a conversation Sunday with the greatest goalie in Flyers history, Bernie Parent. Mason talked with Parent at length while they were at the Flyers Wives Carnival. At the time, Mason was in the middle of his first slump since he was acquired from Columbus late last season: a 4.56 goals-against average and a .851 save percentage in a six-game stretch. After that tailspin, Mason put together three straight strong efforts - all after he had a talk with Parent and goalie coach Jeff Reese.

Every four years, as the Winter Olympics reenter the atmosphere, Americans are bombarded with quirky stories meant to interest them in obscure sports they'd ordinarily ignore. You know, the bobsledder who supports himself selling artichokes; the biathlete with three ears; the snowboarder raised by Hasidic hippies. But of all the odd story lines to surface in advance of this month's 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, few are as head-scratching as this one: The Veterans Stadium security guard who became USA Luge's CEO. Luge - sledding down mountainsides on one's back at 90 m.p.h.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Claude Giroux and the four other Flyers who remain from the 2010 Stanley Cup final roster glided onto the ice yesterday afternoon at the Toyota Sports Center. Above them, hanging on the wall atop the benches, was a large photo of the Kings huddled around the Stanley Cup. You have to squint to see them, their familiar toothless grins hidden behind grizzly playoff beards. But Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are lying next to each other - as it has almost always been.

Forty years ago, the Flyers were the city's most popular team as they won the franchise's first Stanley Cup and were known as the Broad Street Bullies for their physical - opponents called it "dirty" - style of play. Former Flyers center Terry Crisp smiles at the nickname, which was created by Jack Chevalier of the old Evening Bulletin. Fact is, he loves the identity it gave to his team. "I'm still in the game and no matter where I go, people say, 'Oh, you were a Broad Street Bully,' " Crisp, now in his 16th season as a Nashville broadcaster, said last Thursday before the Predators faced the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Flyers have undergone an identity change since Craig Berube replaced Peter Laviolette as their head coach early in the season. Under Laviolette, they were an attack-oriented team and, because of that, they left their goaltenders vulnerable on way too many occasions - as the guy now playing in Edmonton would wholeheartedly attest. Under Berube, the Flyers have a defense-first mentality that emphasizes strong skating away from the puck and an active forecheck in the neutral zone.

HARD TO believe, Harry. On Thursday, the Flyers will hit the midway point of their 82-game march toward the Stanley Cup playoffs. Their goal is nearly halfway accomplished. After a 1-7-0 start to the season, they went 16-9-4 over their last 29 games to enter the holiday break in playoff position. With grades curved slightly in favor of their performances over the last month, here are the Flyers' midseason report cards: Sean Couturier Grade: A Comments: Finally able to purchase an adult beverage legally on Dec. 7, Couturier is playing like the fantastic, shutdown, defensive forward he showcased in his rookie season.

CHICAGO - For as long as Flyers goalie Ray Emery returns to Chicago, the images of 2 million red-clad fans who packed Grant Park on a glorious June day last summer to serenade him and the Blackhawks will be fresh. He will think about his relationship with starter Corey Crawford and the rest of his teammates, a link that is permanently etched in silver on that gleaming Stanley Cup. "Any time you win a championship, you form a special bond," Emery said. "The one I have with Crawford, the one I have with those guys . . . we were all at the same stage in our lives, it was tough to leave.

TAMPA, Fla. - Think about what Chase Utley and Ryan Howard have meant to the Phillies. Now think of them going to another team and then returning to face the Phils at Citizens Bank Park. That's the emotional scenario that awaits veteran center Vinny Lecavalier. A hero and captain with Tampa Bay, Lecavalier and the Flyers (10-11-2) will face the Lightning (15-8-1) Wednesday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. "One of the first things I looked at when we got the schedule this year was, 'When do we go to Tampa?
