Photo via By Jake Pavorsky (@JakePavorsky) Another defenseman has apparently bit the dust. The Philadelphia Flyers have called up Erik Gustafsson, a move that was certainly in correlation to the injury top defenseman Kimmo Timonen sustained Friday night. Timonen was injured midway through the game and never came out for the third and final period with what GM Paul Holmgren described as a “lower body” injury. The extent of the 37 year-old’s injury is yet to publicly be made known, but Philadelphia called up Gustafsson prior to their game against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, a sign that the Flyers may be without Timonen for an extended period of time. To make room for Gustafsson on the roster, the team sent Andreas Lilja down to the Adirondack Phantoms. After missing time with an injured ankle, the Flyers kept the 24 year old in the AHL to get him back up to game speed. And with Timonen going down with an injury, the organization felt now would be an appropriate time to...

Danny Briere Caught in No-Win Situation

Categories: BREAKING NEWS Flyers News NHLTags: Claude GirouxDanny BriereSimon GagneWith a 6-9-1 record, the Philadelphia Flyers are not that far out of playoff contention in the shortened NHL season that it’s time to “panic.” Following ugly losses against New Jersey and Montreal, though, there are clearly fundamental issues with the club that need to be addressed if they...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Talk is Cheap

In the wake of yet another disappointing performance and yet another loss, there is a lot of unrest both within the Philadelphia Flyers and throughout the team's fanbase. The team has played more games (16) than any other club in the NHL, and wakes up this morning in 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Last night's 4-1 loss in Montreal dropped the Flyers to 6-9-1 on...

Bill Meltzer: Flyers Gameday: 2/16/13 @ Canadiens

PREVIEW 7:30 AM EST There is no time for the Philadelphia Flyers (6-8-1) to dwell on last night's collapse in Newark that saw the team blow a 3-1 lead and lose 5-3 in regulation. Tonight, the Flyers return to Canada for the fourth game of their six-game road trip. The opponent will be a Montreal Canadiens (8-4-1) club that has won its last two games and which had last night...

PREVIEW 6:30 AM EST In the third game of their six-game road trip and the first match of another three-in-four, the Philadelphia Flyers (6-7-1) will take on a familiar nemesis. Dating back to the playoffs last spring and the first meeting of the lockout-shortened 2013 season, the New Jersey Devils (8-2-3) have won five games in a row against Philadelphia. Tonight's game from...

Dee Karl: Preparing for the Flyers

Matt Moulson: when you win it seems you get so much more credit than you deserve and when you lose you probably get reprimanded more than you deserve, so it goes both ways.” Moulson should hold onto those words for tomorrow’s afternoon tilt against the Flyers. Historically the Isles do not fare well against the Flyers, but that could possibly change tomorrow. The...

The Slumping Claude Giroux

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Forget about the captaincy weighing him down. Giroux's slump is more tied to the fact he has lost his two big wingers from last year - Scott Hartnell and the ageless Jaromir Jagr. Hartnell has played only three games because of a broken left foot. Jagr, who got tired of the Flyers' putting him on hold as they waited...
