TORONTO - When the Flyers sent left winger James van Riemsdyk to Toronto for defenseman Luke Schenn last summer, both players were considered underachieving former first-round draft picks whose careers might be jump-started by a change of scenery. A little more than three weeks into the season, that's exactly what has happened. Both are thriving with their new teams. Schenn, 23, has become one of the cornerstones of the Flyers' defense and is in their top pairing with Kimmo Timonen.

The Flyers generated a lot more scoring chances than Toronto in their season opener Wednesday, but they didn't supply the finishing touches and dropped a 3-1 decision. The Flyers fired 73 shots (32 on goal), compared with Toronto's 42 (25 on goal). "We did have the opportunities, and we didn't get it to drop," coach Peter Laviolette said after Thursday's practice in Voorhees. "It's like pitching a two-run game or a one-run game in baseball and not winning the game. " The Flyers lost because Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier was outstanding, making 31 saves.

TORONTO - If Flyers coach Peter Laviolette decides to call Brian Boucher's name Tuesday night in Winnipeg, the veteran goalie says he is ready for his first NHL start since last season. "Yeah, absolutely," Boucher said after rejoining the Flyers and taking part in their morning practice before Monday night's game in Toronto. "I played a bit in Adirondack, so it's been good. Anytime you get game sharpness, it certainly helps, and I feel it's been a good thing for me. " Laviolette would not commit to Tuesday's goalie.

BOSTON - The 76ers endured a 26-game losing streak and tied the longest skid in major professional sports history. They have lost 28 of their last 29 games. However, the tanking Sixers (16-59) remain a long shot to finish with the NBA's worst record. The Milwaukee Bucks have all but locked up the best chance for the top pick in the draft lottery. Milwaukee (14-61) has a two-loss cushion over the Sixers with seven games remaining. And the Bucks will be hard-pressed to win two of those games.

TORONTO - Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen has been in the NHL for 15 seasons, but he had never scored against Toronto. Until Saturday night. Timonen, who will turn 39 later this month, scored two goals to dramatically tie the score at 2, but it wasn't enough. Former Flyer Joffrey Lupul won it with 2 minutes, 39 seconds left in overtime, tapping in Dion Phaneuf's pass to give Toronto a riveting, 4-3 victory at the Air Canada Centre. The Flyers, who nearly earned their 12th win after trailing in the third period this season, salvaged a point and are on a 3-0-1 run. "The point is huge.
