Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren can’t sit idly by while his team continues reeling.“I’m concerned because we’re falling behind here,” he told CSN Philadelphia. “We got to get going here.”The penalty-prone Flyers lost six of their first eight games this season to sink to the Eastern Conference basement. CSN Philadelphia notes the last time they occupied 15th in the East for any sustained period of time was during the 2006-07 season.Players have fallen to injuries left and right. Power forward Scott Hartnell may miss another month with his broken foot. Power forward Wayne Simmonds could miss time, too, after taking a nasty elbow to the face from John Erskine of the Washington Capitals. He left the game with a bloody nose and a possible concussion.Hartnell and Simmonds define the Flyers playing style. Both players hit, fight and score.“If we lose Wayne for any stretch of time, that’s another big hole,” Holmgren said. “It’s hard to replace those kind of guys.”Embattled
