TAMPA, Fla. - Down the palm tree-lined street across from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the road-weary Columbus Blue Jackets were watching the Flyers' every move. Already in town ahead of their own meeting with the Lightning tonight, the Blue Jackets' hopes of climbing in the Metropolitan Division rose with every blaring goal horn - which they could probably hear from their balconies on a gorgeous Florida spring night. The Flyers will begin their quest for a Stanley Cup on the road.

Never mind that Luke Schenn was traded for James van Riemsdyk, a winger who had a breakout season in Toronto. Schenn was struggling earlier this season, so he was benched. Never mind that Vinny Lecavalier has credentials that may get him into the Hall of Fame someday. The veteran center wasn't producing as a second-line left winger, so he was dropped to center on the fourth line late in the season. Never mind that the Flyers traded popular center Max Talbot to Colorado for Steve Downie.

TAMPA, Fla. - Anders Lindback didn't play like a backup. The 6-foot-6 Tampa Bay goalie played more like Ken Dryden in his prime, making 34 saves and leading the Lightning to a 4-2 win over the Flyers at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Thursday night. "We had tons of chances, and it seemed he was pulling saves out of his butt," Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said. The loss, coupled with the Rangers' 2-1 escape over Buffalo, enabled New York to clinch second place in the Metropolitan Division.

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.

IN SIX SEASONS with two teams, Jakub Voracek has yet to skate off the ice at Madison Square Garden a happy man. Wayne Simmonds has the same lack of positive vibe over the same amount of seasons, so maybe they are not exactly the right people to analyze why the Flyers have lost eight straight games in the storied building despite what appears to be a parity of talent between the teams over that span. Then, again, who better? "We just haven't kept it simple enough," Voracek said yesterday after practice.

For the Flyers, recent history at the Garden has been more about thorns, less about roses. Entering Wednesday's second-place showdown against the New York Rangers, the Flyers have lost seven straight at Madison Square Garden since 2011, getting outscored, 28-8. "It's a tough building. I don't know what it is about it," center Claude Giroux said after Tuesday's practice in Voorhees. "We'll have to make sure the first period is our best period and go from there. " The Rangers scored three goals in the first 9 minutes, 24 seconds in their 4-1 win over the visiting Flyers on Jan. 12. The Flyers are coming off Monday's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles.

Here is staff writer Sam Carchidi's key to the game:   For the Flyers, containing the Jordan Staal line - which has been more effective than the heralded Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby units - and getting better production from Danny Briere and his linemates. Briere, Brayden Schenn, and Wayne Simmonds are a combined minus-16 in the last two games.

The trades: Mike Richards to Los Angeles Kings for center Brayden Schenn, right wing Wayne Simmonds and a 2012 second-round pick. Jeff Carter to Columbus for right wing Jakub Voracek and the Blue Jackets' first-round pick (eighth overall) and third-round pick in this weekend's draft. The signing: Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to a 9-year, $51 million deal

BOSTON - Despite a critical goal from seldom-used winger Jay Rosehill, the Flyers' skid continued with a closer-than-it-looks, 5-2 loss to Boston at TD Garden on Saturday afternoon. The Bruins scored two late goals 31 seconds apart to snap a 2-2 tie and clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Chris Kelly added an empty-net goal as the Flyers suffered their fourth straight defeat - and sixth loss in the last seven games. "We've been getting some opportunities, but they have to go in the back of the net, plain and simple," said winger Scott Hartnell, whose team ended a 165-minute, 1-second goalless streak but was outscored, 4-1, in even-strength situations, excluding the empty-net goal.

The NHL said yesterday it doesn't know for certain if Wayne Simmonds directed a homophobic slur at the Rangers' Sean Avery in Monday's preseason game, so for now no punishment will be given to the Flyers' forward. Colin Campbell, the league's senior executive vice president of hockey operations and former disciplinarian, said last night that because of "conflicting accounts of what transpired on the ice, we have been unable to substantiate with the necessary degree of certainty what was said and by whom.
