Smiling Flyers surging, more comfortable for Berube

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers had a full and happy group on the ice Saturday morning as they got ready for their game against the visiting New York Islanders.

Winning five of six like the Flyers have generally puts a smile on people's faces.

"When you're winning it's definitely a better atmosphere," Flyers center Vincent Lecavalier said. "I think we're having a lot of fun out there. We're working hard but we're smiling. We're just playing. ... I think everything snowballs in a good way. When things go well you feel better out there individually and as a team."

Moncton's Barbashev to lead Russia at Super Series

Ivan Barbashev, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, was named to Russia's roster for the 2013 Subway Super Series games.

Russia will play six games across Canada -- two each against all-star teams from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, the Ontario Hockey League and the Western Hockey League.

Perreault back for Ducks, on line with Selanne

PHILADELPHIA -- Mathieu Perreault sat out the Anaheim Ducks' game Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a sore left wrist, but after going through a full practice for the second straight day Tuesday, he'll be back in the lineup Tuesday night when the Ducks face the Philadelphia Flyers.

Getting the chance to play on a line with Teemu Selanne certainly speeds up the healing process.

Perreault will center the Ducks' second line with Emerson Etem on the left side and Selanne, the likely Hall of Famer playing his final NHL season, on the right side.

"It's been great," Perreaut said. "Hall-of-Fame guy. He's been unreal to play with. So far for me it's been really good playing with him."

Flyers' defense has been rounding into form

PHILADELPHIA -- While much has been made of the Philadelphia Flyers' inability to generate much offense -- they enter their game Tuesday against the Anaheim Ducks 28th in the League with an average of 1.80 goals per game -- their defense quietly has rounded into shape.

After allowing 12 goals in three games against the Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Canucks and Pittsburgh Penguins, all losses, the Flyers have allowed three goals in their past two, wins against the New York Rangers and New York Islanders.

They're 16th in the League in goals-against at 2.70 per game, but that effort will be put to the test Tuesday by the Ducks, who are seventh at 3.17 goals per game.
