ROSS LONSBERRY arrived in Philadelphia from sunny California on Jan. 28, 1972, as part of a seven-player deal from the Kings, the largest trade in NHL history at the time. He wasn't all that thrilled with the trade. "The travel is brutal for any player in LA, but other than that, I loved the West Coast," Lonsberry told reporters then. "I'd be lying if I said the weather didn't make me lose interest at times - not during a game, but maybe at 8 in the morning when I had to get up for practice.

IF TIME IS FLEETING, Kimmo Timonen does not seem concerned. In fact, that is all Timonen asked general manager Paul Holmgren for in his exit interview yesterday. Not a new contract. Not a position in the front office. Just a few weeks to collect his thoughts. "Let's put it this way: If I won the Stanley Cup earlier, I probably wouldn't be here and talking to you guys. I would say, 'OK, that's it,' " Timonen said. "But I haven't won it. That's the only thing that keeps the hopes up. It's not money.

Without trying, Ed Snider sounded as though he had created a slogan for next year's Flyers. "I'm happy with the core, but I know we need more," Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, said during a news conference Friday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, where the players were clearing out their lockers. Snider gave the team a "B" grade for its overall performance this season, despite getting eliminated in the opening round of the playoffs. He said he factored in how the Flyers rebounded from a franchise-worst 1-7 start, going 41-23-10 the rest of the way before falling to the New York Rangers, four games to three, in the playoffs.

FORMER FLYERS coach Mike Keenan has another Cup: The Gagarin Cup. Keenan, whose first NHL head-coaching job was with the Flyers in the mid-1980s, coached Metallurg Magnitogorsk to the Kontinental Hockey League championship yesterday. Metallurg beat Lev Prague, 7-4, in Game 7, making Keenan the first North American coach to win the Gagarin Cup and the first to win the NHL and KHL championships. Keenan won the Stanley Cup with the Rangers in 1994, his only season with the team.

THE FLYERS unearthed Kate Smith from the grave for another rendition of "God Bless America" last night, because, well, that is what they do when it is must-win. When the final horn sounded, practically blowing the roof off the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers high-fived and retreated to their dressing room. Inside, Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" was blasting - the same postgame victory anthem that carried the Flyers within two wins of a Stanley Cup in 2010. The Rangers gave enough last night.

The Flyers' inability to stop the Rangers line of Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, and Rick Nash has been a story line throughout their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series. It definitely continued during the 4-1 loss to New York on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Rangers have regained home-ice advantage and take a two-games-to-one lead into Game 4 Friday in Philadelphia. The trio has been difficult for the Flyers to contain, at even-strength and on the power play. Stepan scored the first goal Tuesday, less than four minutes into the game, though it came on a gift from goalie Ray Emery.

NEW YORK - This was not how Jason Akeson had envisioned his Stanley Cup debut would end up - in frustration. He was the center of attention, drew his share of reporters, and while painful, he went through the play that turned around the Flyers' opening playoff game in a negative way. Akeson's third-period double minor for high sticking led to two power play goals as the New York Rangers opened their first-round series with a 4-1 win over the Flyers...

Claude Giroux's bottom line - he finished third in the NHL with 86 points, and is expected to be one of the league's three MVP finalists - is remarkable when you consider how his season began. With no points in his first five games. With no goals in his first 15 games. The slow start was hindered by finger surgery following a bizarre golf injury, one that bothered his stickhandling and made it difficult for him to get enough power behind his shots. Giroux was a frustrated sort in the season's first month.

LUKE SCHENN has been in the NHL so long that sometimes it is easy to forget he is just 24 years old. It is even tougher for Schenn himself to imagine, then, that tonight at Madison Square Garden will be his first Stanley Cup playoff game. Since Schenn joined the league in 2008, every NHL team except Edmonton and Atlanta/Winnipeg has made the playoffs. Schenn just happened to leave Toronto - which had experienced a 7-year playoff drought until 2013 - before last season, when the Flyers had one of their rare missteps.
