"Olli is going through further tests. Nothing is definitive yet," coach Mike Johnston said Tuesday.

The Flyers improved to 17-19-7 (41 points) this season and passed the idle Columbus Blue Jackets for sole possession of fifth in the Metropolitan Division standings.

* Philadelphia's seven-goal performance matched a season-high set in a 7-4 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Dec. 20, 2014. The performance was also the most the club has scored at home since Feb. 16, 2012 when they defeated the Buffalo Sabres 7-2.

* According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time the Flyers had seven or more goals by seven or more different skaters was on Nov. 5, 2011 when they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 9-2; Sean Couturier scored twice while Matt Carle, Claude Giroux, Jaromir Jagr, Wayne Simmonds, Maxime Talbot, James van Riemsdyk and Jakub Voracek each scored once.

Rangers have found consistency after slow start

Tuesday, 01.13.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For the first two months of the 2014-15 season, the conversation coming out of the New York Rangers dressing room focused on their search for consistency. Injuries and illness, particularly on defense, made it difficult for the Rangers to play the way they want to play, meaning a low-risk, high-reward game built on speed through the neutral zone backed by superior goaltending.

Consistency, like the health of their defensemen, is no longer a problem. Watch the Rangers now and it looks like they're playing in fast forward. They're playing at a breakneck speed, particularly when they transition from defense to offense. The results have been staggering.

The Rangers have won five games in a row and 13 of their past 14 heading into their game against the New York Islanders at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. Last week, the Rangers became the third team since 2000-01, and first since the Buffalo Sabres in 2011-12, to sweep the three California teams in the same season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

With a regulation win Tuesday, the Rangers can move within three points of first place in the Metropolitan Division; they were 12 points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins and Islanders on Dec. 8, when they defeated the Penguins in overtime to start their current hot streak.

Here are five reasons why the Rangers have found the consistency they were looking for in the first two months of the season:

Five Questions: Sabres GM Murray on rebuilding

Tuesday, 01.13.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray:

Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray is no different than most GMs in that he looks around the NHL and sees examples of what he wants his team to become, most notably the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings.

To get there, Murray has taken on an unorthodox approach to managing a team in the middle of a season. He doesn't worry about wins and losses, points gained and lost. The Sabres are rebuilding and it's hard to find anyone who has embraced the process more than Murray.

Predators' Forsberg remains Calder Trophy leader

Tuesday, 01.13.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

It was only a year ago when Filip Forsberg helped Sweden win a silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship on home ice in Malmo, Sweden.

Forsberg had four goals, 12 points and a plus-3 rating in seven games as captain for Tre Kronor but his country lost the gold medal game in overtime to Finland. The experience as a top point producer and leader for an entire country has certainly carried over to the NHL with the Predators this season.

Forsberg, who was ranked No. 12 on NHL.com's Top 60 prospects ranking, remains our top candidate to win the Calder Trophy as the NHL Rookie of the Year.

Sabres retire Hall of Fame goalie Hasek's No. 39

Tuesday, 01.13.2015 / 12:09 AM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres retired Dominik Hasek's number Tuesday, raising his No. 39 to the rafters at First Niagara Center before the game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Hasek received a lengthy standing ovation when he was introduced by legendary play-by-play broadcaster Rick Jeanneret.

"I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing the cheers of Sabres fans," Hasek said. "It's very humbling to be standing here tonight and look up in the rafters and seeing the names of Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin, Rene Robert, Tim Horton, Danny Gare, and Pat LaFontaine. It reminds me that Buffalo is a special place in the game of hockey."

In nine seasons with the Sabres, Hasek won the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP twice (1996-97, 1997-98) and the Vezina Trophy six times, and he led the Sabres to the Stanley Cup Final in 1999.

Monday, 01.12.2015 / 11:20 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- The Tampa Bay Lightning lost defenseman Victor Hedman and center Tyler Johnsonbecause of lower-body injuries during a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

Coach Jon Cooper said he was unsure if either player would be available for the Lightning's game Tuesday at the Boston Bruins.

"[Johnson] is our leading scorer and [Hedman] is our leading scoring defenseman," Cooper said. "You pull any of those guys out of your lineup it's going to hurt. We'll see how we adapt. This happens to teams; it's happened to us before. We've been through it. You don't like to go through it but we have. And we'll respond."
