The winless Flyers received mixed medical news Monday: Center Vinny Lecavalier, who injured his left foot Saturday, will miss two weeks. But defenseman Braydon Coburn, sidelined the last two games because of an undisclosed injury, was upgraded to day-to-day. Coburn did not practice Monday in Voorhees, so he is not expected to play Tuesday against visiting Anaheim (2-1). He probably will return Saturday in Dallas, where the Flyers start a three-game road trip. Lecavalier, 34, missed 13 games because of various injuries last season.

WOE AND 2, with an October schedule that features not a single cupcake, aside from the Devils game that they just blew, the Flyers held a team meeting yesterday. Coach Craig Berube pointed out the highlights and lowlights of the Flyers' stumble out of the gate, but left his team with one parting message: Don't listen to the media. "You guys [media] talk about it, people in general, about bad starts all the time," Berube said. "You can't let it creep into your focus of playing the game.

A not-so-funny thing happened to the Flyers as they were coasting to their first win of the season Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. They had a total team meltdown. They fell back on their heels, allowed Montreal to come at them in swarms, and blew a 3-0 lead. And the game. P.A. Parenteau scored in the fourth round of the shootout to lift the Canadiens to a stunning 4-3 win, ending their 10-game losing streak at the Wells Fargo Center, including the playoffs. Montreal improved to 3-0 - with all the wins on the road.

Once again, the Flyers have made it difficult on themselves at the start of a season. They host Montreal, which has started the year with consecutive road wins, on Saturday night and are in danger of slipping to 0-3 for the third straight season. The schedule doesn't get easier. After facing the Canadiens, the Flyers meet four of the league's projected heavyweights - Anaheim, Dallas, Chicago and Pittsburgh. "We have to clean up our little mistakes," defenseman Mark Streit said after a team meeting at their Voorhees practice facility Friday, one day after the Flyers dropped a 6-4 decision to visiting New Jersey, "but on the other hand, we did some good things as well, so we have to be positive out there.

Wayne Simmonds threw his arms in the air as he embraced Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Vinny Lecavalier while the frenzied sellout crowd stood in disbelief Thursday night. Simmonds knew. The right winger knew his shot had beaten the buzzer to end the astonishing last few minutes of the second period, knew the Flyers had come all the way back from a 3-0 deficit, knew this game suddenly had a different feel to it. But the Flyers couldn't sustain the momentum. Dainius Zubrus scored what proved to be the game-winner as the New Jersey Devils outlasted the Flyers, 6-4, and ruined their home opener.

LUKE SCHENN laughed. Because, well, there was really nothing else he could do. He was still in a state of disbelief after the Flyers' 6-4 loss to the Devils last night. The only New Jersey goal to which Schenn wasn't either victim or witness was the empty-netter that Mike Cammalleri scored to seal a disheartening home debut. One deflected off his stick past goalie Steve Mason. On another, Mason's line of sight was cut off by Schenn in front. "I'd say some were bad bounces," Schenn said.

BOSTON - Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, the Flyers' speedy fourth-line center, was overjoyed by his accomplishment. "I don't know if I really realize what's going on," he said before the season opener Wednesday against the Bruins. "I don't know if it's because it's so many years that you don't believe in this kind of stuff, that it's going to happen to you. " At 29, Bellemare became the ninth French-born player to reach the NHL when he played in the Flyers-Bruins matchup. "It's a big step for our country, for all our hockey fans - to have one more representative of the country," he said.

BOSTON - Claude Giroux's last 14 months have included finger surgery after his golf club shattered, an arrest for grabbing a policeman's buttocks in an Ottawa bar - "my misguided attempt at humor," he said - and a lower-body injury suffered 15 minutes into this season's training camp. "Bad luck," Giroux said, "kind of follows me. " Not on the ice. The Flyers captain has blossomed into one of the NHL's elite players. Giroux finished third in the NHL in scoring with 86 points and third in the MVP voting last season.

ORLEANS, Mass. - The Flyers got some encouraging news Monday morning: High-scoring right winger Wayne Simmonds practiced in Cape Cod and showed no ill effects from a foot injury - a sign that he may play in Wednesday's opener in Boston. It was the first time Simmonds skated since last Tuesday, when he injured his left foot blocking a shot in a 4-2 preseason win against the visiting New York Rangers. He was wearing a boot Sunday. "I felt as good as I could today," Simmonds said after Monday's 70-minute practice.

ORLEANS, Mass. - The Flyers continued their "Getting To Know You" portion of their preseason on Sunday, practicing for 90 intense minutes here in Cape Cod as they prepare for Wednesday's opener in Boston. The previous day, they played paintball - Nick Grossmann was dominating - and ate meals together. Their deep-sea fishing excursion Sunday afternoon was canceled because of choppy waters, so the team watched NFL games together. "Listen, it doesn't determine wins and losses, but it gets your team together," coach Craig Berube said.
