LOS ANGELES -- Travis Konecny and Ivan Provorov already looked comfortable with the Philadelphia Flyers from the first moments of their NHL debuts.The Flyers all made themselves quite comfortable at Staples Center in an impressive season opener.Boyd Gordon and Sean Couturier scored 48 seconds apart to kick off a four-goal second period in Philadelphias 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.Couturier got two goals, Mark Streit also scored and Michal Neuvirth made 23 saves as the Flyers took a 4-0 lead and cruised to a win in their season opener for the first time since 2011.But even after running over the two-time Stanley Cup champion Kings, the Flyers veterans mostly wanted to talk about 19-year-old rookies Konecny and Provorov, two first-round draft picks from 2015 who cracked the Philadelphia roster in training camp.Its awesome having them here, defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said. They bring an element I dont think we necessarily had last year. Theyve got speed, and they can make plays.Konecny had two assists, setting up both of Couturiers goals with nifty plays. Provorov added another assist on Streits goal.I can play better, and Ill play better (Saturday), Provorov said. You expect the best. Its the best league in the world. (Los Angeles) came out hard. We weathered the storm and started to play our game.Drew Doughty and Brayden McNabb scored in the home opener for the Kings, whose 50th anniversary season is off to an 0-2 start after a strong first period led to a dismal second against Philadelphia.We were turning over pucks, giving odd-man rushes and had a few bad changes, said Doughty, last seasons Norris Trophy winner. It was one of the worst periods we have played as a team in a long time.Jeff Zatkoff made his home debut with 26 saves in his first game as the Kings presumptive starter in the absence of Jonathan Quick, the Vezina Trophy finalist. Quick is out for several weeks with a groin injury, but Zatkoff wasnt the Kings biggest problem while his teammates repeatedly left him without help through poor decisions.(Quick) is arguably the best goalie in the NHL, but we cant do anything about it, Los Angeles captain Anze Kopitar said. We have to play hard and play with what we have.The Kings opener went downhill from the pregame ceremony to kick off their landmark 50th anniversary season. The Flyers, who entered the NHL alongside the Kings in the leagues Second Six expansion, also celebrate their 50th this year.Los Angeles welcomed back several members of its original team and other stars from the franchises founding days. Every former player with a number retired in the Staples Center rafters made an appearance, including Wayne Gretzky.The Flyers couldnt put a shot on Zatkoff until Streits tame try 13 minutes into the first period, but Gordon started the scoring for his new team early in the second after the Kings made a poor change. Couturier then scored consecutive goals 7:21 apart.Streit capped the barrage when the Swiss defenseman banked a shot off the back of Zatkoffs head.Doughty finally snapped the Kings 97 1/2-minute scoreless drought late in the second, and McNabb scored early in the third.Game notes Flyers D Shayne Gostisbehere was cut on the right cheek by Kings F Kyle Cliffords skate early in the first period, but stayed in the game. I was just thankful it wasnt worse, said Gostisbehere, who didnt need stitches. Ill take this any day over what could have happened. ... Kings F Tanner Pearson finished his two-game suspension for a preseason hit on Edmontons Brandon Davidson. ... The Kings sold out their 173rd consecutive regular-season home game.UP NEXTFlyers: A three-game road trip continues Saturday night at Arizona.Kings: Theyve got the weekend off before they open a two-game road trip at Minnesota on Tuesday.

. Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.

PITTSBURGH -- Trailing by two scores in the fourth quarter and time ticking away on Sunday, New York Jets coach Todd Bowles opted to play it safe. Twice.All it did was cost the Jets a chance to keep the explosive Pittsburgh Steelers within arms reach.Not that Bowles was in the mood to second-guess himself following a 31-13 loss that dropped his team to 1-4. Given a choice, hed kick again. Both times.If it was the same situation, Id probably punt, Bowles said. When you talk hypothetically after you lose a ballgame, it doesnt help anyone. I stand by that decision.And the Jets find themselves standing at the bottom of the AFC East along with the Miami Dolphins. New York was competitive for most of the game against one of the NFLs most dynamic offenses and even led 13-7 late in the second quarter before a secondary missing star cornerback Darrelle Revis cracked .The Steelers roared back to go up 24-13 on a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown with 14:55 to go. The Jets faced a fourth-and-1 at their own 29 with just over 13 minutes to go when Ryan Fitzpatrick hit Bilal Powell for an 8-yard gain. Bowles challenged the spot, only to see it upheld on replay.Needing about a foot to extend the drive and keep Roethlisberger and company off the field, New York punted.The Steelers promptly moved deep into Jets territory before a fumble by Roethlisberger was recovered by Sheldon Richardson. The Jets made it to midfield when Fitzpatrick missed Brandon Marshall on third-and-2 at the New York 46 with 7:36 to go. Again, Bowles sent on punter Lachlan Edwards. This time, the Steelers went 79 yards in 12 plays, finishing off the Jets with a 5-yard pass from Roethlisberger to Sammie Coatess.ddddddddddddThere was enough time on the clock, Bowles said. We figured we could get them pinned down there and go three-and-out. Thats what we were thinking.Instead, the Jets find themselves find themselves on a three-game losing streak heading to a Monday night trip to Arizona next week.Fitzpatrick, who turned it over 10 times in the previous two weeks, avoided critical mistakes and completed 25 of 38 passes for 255 yards and a 15-yard TD toss to Marshall. Yet he was also on the sideline watching helplessly while the Steelers went on their clinical clinching drive.The veteran refused to blame Bowles, instead pointing the finger at himself for not connecting with Marshall, an incompletion that set up Bowles cautious call.What was going through my head was, `I cant believe I missed that throw on third down, Fitzpatrick said. That whole scenario we shouldnt have been in because I shouldnt have made that poor throw the down before. I know we all have faith and confidence in coach.Maybe, but a year after going 10-6 and narrowly missing the playoffs, the Jets suddenly find themselves with little room for error.People in the media are going to call us out, are going to ask to bench us, including me, said Marshall, who caught eight passes for 114 yards and the second-quarter score. Its a good positon for us. We have one of the most-talented teams in the league. We can either fold it up or continue to stick to it and work. Plenty of teams have been in this positon and come out better on the other side.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org
