ST. PAUL, Minn. - The NHL draft resumed Saturday morning, and the Western Hockey League supplied more top talent. The Edmonton Oilers made the first pick Saturday, taking defenseman David Musil to start the second round. The St. Louis Blues, without a first-round selection Friday, grabbed right winger Ty Rattie with the 32d pick. Musil and Rattie played in the WHL last season. The Oilers opened the draft Friday by taking center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the first WHL player to go first overall since 1996.

Despite playing the recently completed season with three aging defensemen - Chris Pronger, Kimmo Timonen, and Sean O'Donnell - the Flyers continued to emphasize offense Saturday during the second and final day of the NHL draft in St. Paul, Minn. In the two days, the Flyers drafted six players - five forwards and one defenseman. After taking highly touted center Sean Couturier on the first day, the Flyers chose center Nick Cousins (third round, 68th overall); defenseman Colin Suellentrop (fourth round, 116th overall)

Flyers left winger James van Riemsdyk , who will turn 22 on Wednesday, has blossomed into one of the NHL's best players during these playoffs. Against the Bruins on Monday night, the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder scored two goals in the first period to extend his goal-scoring streak to five games. Van Riemsdyk scored goals in each of the last three games against Buffalo and one in Game 1 against the Bruins. He ended Monday night's game with eight shots. The native of Middletown, N.J., has seven goals on a team-high 59 shots in nine playoff games this year against the Sabres and Bruins.

TAMPA, Fla. - If there were any doubts about whether the Flyers felt this was their season to end their three-plus-decade Stanley Cup drought, they were erased on Monday night. In a move that sacrificed the future, the Flyers acquired productive right winger Kris Versteeg from Toronto for their first- and third-round draft picks in 2011. Versteeg, 24, who played for the Chicago team that beat the Flyers in last year's Stanley Cup Finals, had 14 goals and 21 assists and was minus-13 for the lowly Maple Leafs this season.

Flyers Notes NEWARK, N.J. - The Flyers would like to add veteran New Jersey Devils winger Jamie Langenbrunner to their already-deep lineup, The Inquirer has learned. Langenbrunner, who is in the last year of a $2.8 million contract, was asked to waive his no-trade clause and was not in Thursday's lineup against the Flyers. The Flyers have about $3.6 million of acquisition space available - enough room to add Langenbrunner. Langenbrunner, 35, is having a subpar season, with four goals and 10 assists in 31 games.

Flyers Notes ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Flyers' road trip should be labeled As the Goaltender Turns . Three games. Three starting goaltenders. On Friday night, rookie Sergei Bobrovsky started against Anaheim. It was just his third start in the last nine games - and first since a 5-0 loss to Florida on Dec. 20. "It's his turn," coach Peter Laviolette deadpanned before the game. Laviolette is juggling three goalies: Bobrovsky, Brian Boucher , and Michael Leighton . "I'm trying to manage the three goaltenders," the coach said.

Dan Carcillo practiced with the Flyers Monday for the first time since he sprained his left knee against the Ottawa Senators on Nov. 15. But the question is, when the feisty winger is ready for game action, will there be a spot for him in the lineup? With Carcillo sidelined, wingers Andreas Nodl, James van Riemsdyk and Nik Zherdev have raised their level of play. And winger Darroll Powe is a valuable penalty-killer, so it would be difficult to take him out of the lineup. Jody Shelley (6-foot-3, 230 pounds)

It's amazing what a shot of confidence has done for Andreas Nodl, the Flyers' blossoming 23-year-old winger. In his first two stints with the Flyers, Nodl played 58 games, including the playoffs, and scored one goal. One. Fans began referring to him as Andreas Nogoal . Not anymore. In 11 games this season, Nodl has scored five goals - none prettier, or more important, than the spin-around backhander that gave the Flyers a 4-3 lead with 6 minutes, 7 seconds left in regulation Saturday in Washington.

Although Flyers coach Peter Laviolette would not reveal his decisions, all signs point to rookie goalie Sergei Bobrovsky making his 10th straight start and left winger James van Riemsdyk returning to the lineup Monday against visiting Ottawa. Monday figured to be a good time to play backup goalie Brian Boucher, who hasn't started since Oct. 25. The Flyers will have games on back-to-back nights - they play in Montreal on Tuesday - and Bobrovsky, sooner or later, is going to need a rest.
