The Flyers probably don't want to see the season stopped for the Olympic break. Thanks to backup goalie Ray Emery's 32-save performance, they went into the 18-day break by extending their winning streak to four games, outlasting the Calgary Flames, 2-1, Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. The stoppage "kind of sucks when you're in a groove, but everyone has to deal with it right now, so there's nothing we can do about it," said winger Wayne Simmonds, who set up the Flyers' first goal.

The Flyers, playing with the same sense of urgency they displayed on their successful West Coast trip, won their third straight game Thursday night behind Steve Mason's 38-save performance. Mason continued his outstanding play, and Mark Streit and rookie Michael Raffl scored goals for the second straight game as the Flyers defeated Colorado, 3-1, at the Wells Fargo Center. "The saves he made tonight were pretty impressive, especially at the end there with two minutes left, when he came across and made that save," said Claude Giroux, who iced the victory by depositing an empty-net goal with 19.8 seconds left.

SAN JOSE - Spanning a brief career with two different franchises, Brayden Schenn has never played an NHL game without Wayne Simmonds in the same lineup. The two have been linemates almost exclusively since arriving in Philadelphia in 2011. Few players on the Flyers' roster know Simmonds better. When asked what has made Simmonds so consistent this season, Schenn responded Saturday with, "Determination. " Minutes earlier, without prior knowledge, Simmonds used the same word.

Goalie Steve Mason played superbly, and former Kings right winger Wayne Simmonds, quite fittingly, reached a milestone at the place where his fast-rising career started. The two players keyed the Flyers' much-needed 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday afternoon at the Staples Center. It was just the Flyers' second win in their last seven games, while the Kings suffered their eighth loss in nine games. The Flyers equaled a franchise record for the fewest shots in a game, 13. It was the first time in their history that they won a game with so few shots.

LOS ANGELES - Wayne Simmonds' transformation - from a checking-line winger with Los Angeles to one of the NHL's most productive players recently with the Flyers - is what general manager Paul Holmgren foresaw when he made the stunning deal with the Kings in 2011. Holmgren has made his share of questionable moves in recent years, with the trade that sent James van Riemsdyk to Toronto for Luke Schenn at the top of the forgettable list. But he got it right when he acquired Simmonds and the blossoming Brayden Schenn for captain Mike Richards.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Flyers center Brayden Schenn will face his ex-team, the Los Angeles Kings, for the first time Saturday afternoon since he was acquired in the 2011 Mike Richards deal. "It's definitely an extra kick for me," said Schenn, who was in the minors when the Flyers hosted the Kings the first season after the deal. "I haven't been back here since I got traded - or even played the Kings. This is my first taste. " Wayne Simmonds, also acquired in the Richards deal, has faced the Kings once since the trade, but this is his first time opposing them in L.A. The Flyers will be trying to rebound from Thursday's 5-3 loss to the powerful Ducks.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - When Michael Raffl was bumped from the first to fourth line earlier this week, Flyers coach Craig Berube was careful to point out the move was not a demotion. "He's been a good player," Berube said then. "Wherever he goes, people seem to play good around him. It'll be a better fourth line with him on it. " Raffl, 25, has provided Berube with some unexpected flexibility in his first half season in the NHL. Originally considered a player with a top-end skill set, Raffl has demonstrated an ability to play the all-important "elevator" role - meaning he can move up and down the lineup with ease.

The slumping Flyers have six games before the Olympic break. Six games to get back on track and reestablish themselves as an Eastern Conference playoff team. "It's huge," said winger Wayne Simmonds, whose team will try to snap a four-game losing streak against visiting Detroit on Tuesday. "Obviously you want to go into the Olympic break in a playoff spot. We kind of messed ourselves up; it's a huge dogfight right now from fourth all the way down to 12th. You lose a game, you could be out. You win a game, you could jump two spots.

EVERYBODY KNEW the Flyers game started at 6 o'clock last night except for the Flyers themselves. Showing the effects of not having an organized practice for nearly 48 hours, the Flyers dropped a sloppy, 3-2 decision to the Carolina Hurricanes. "We were second to pucks all night long, except for maybe a couple of shifts," said Scott Hartnell, who mentioned a similar layoff the Flyers had earlier this year. "We tried to sneak out another win, but when you're not playing great hockey, it's going to bite us in the ass real quick.

YA GOTTA love this Metropolitan Division. It's like a poker game run by your mother. No matter what happens, there are no big winners and no big losers. Not yet anyway. With last night's 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, the Flyers have ended five of their last seven games on the losing end. Due to the miracle of hockey mathematics - where teams are rewarded for near misses - they still managed six points in that span, and managed to remain among the top three teams in the Met. But four of those games were against Met teams below them in the standings (at the time)
