Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Andreas Lilja exited Saturday afternoon's game against the Boston Bruins after he was hit near the throat by the puck.
Lilja promptly left toward the locker room early in the first period. It is not immediately known if he'll return to the contest.
The 36-year-old Swede entered the game with three assists and 34 penalty minutes this season.
BEST OF MAXIM
Max Talbot and Andreas Lilja are OUT Sunday vs. Penguins.
The FLyers are listing both as day-to-day.
Lilja was struck in the throat Saturday at BOSTON with a deflected puck; Talbot fell on his right shoulder during a fight with Johnny Boychuk.
The good news? Talbot doesn't have a separated or dislocated right shoulder which was feared. Flyers are calling it "upper body."
BOSTON - The Flyers didn't win a shootout in the afternoon - they can't win in the afternoon period _ but they picked up a valuable point in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
And they had to do it without Max Talbot and Andreas Lilja, both of whom were injured.
Talbot has a right shoulder injury and we believe Lilja was struck in the throat off a deflected shot...
Wow. What a huge win! We were all worried it would go to a shootout, and luckily it didn’t, but who cares! All that matters is the Flyers won. They beat the NHL’s hottest team, gaining 3 points in the standings in the process.I don’t know who I hate more, the Penguins or the Rangers.Although he gave up 2 goals, Ilya Bryzgalov once again looked sharp, making several key saves...
If the last two Flyer games didn't whet your appetite for playoff hockey, you're need to convert to the NBA.
Today's 3-2 Flyers overtime win against Pittsburgh was one of those "Can't wait till April" games if these two clubs meet in the playoffs.
Just a fabulous game. Scott Hartnell's offense and physical play coupled with Kris Letang's outstanding...
Man, the Flyers and Penguins really hate each other, don't they?
With two huge points at stake on a Sunday afternoon affair in Philadelphia that was played with the fervor of a Stanley Cup playoffs matchup, the two teams traded blows on the scoreboard and after the whistle for 65 minutes. Well, alright. Not quite 65 minutes.
With four minutes to go in regulation, the teams...
The record-setting performance of Ilya Bryzgalov and the jump shown by the Flyers' top line were the highlights of last night's otherwise nondescript 3-2 road win in Long Island. Philly did not play as well on a sustained basis as it did in Tuesday's 3-0 home win over the Devils, but the team did enough to skate away with two points in the first segment of their 3-game...
All-Star Scott Hartnell tallied twice - with the latter coming 4:59 into overtime - as the Philadelphia Flyers overcame a two-goal deficit to snap visiting Pittsburgh's season-high 11-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory. Defenseman Kimmo Timonen netted a power-play goal and fellow All-Star Claude Giroux notched a pair of assists for the Flyers, who improved to 8-1-1 in their...
Chris Kunitz has a flashback to his Anaheim days, gets involved with Hartnell, just to play the agitator role.
Also from the same game, Hartnell high sticks his own player, Zac Rinaldo. You can watch the incident below…

Start drinking, you'll need it. Put on your green ******* O'Lucic t-shirt like a super douchebag, pin on your "Kiss Me I'm Irish" pin although your last name is something like Pallazola or Rask, wear some stupid oversized green hat and throw up all over yourself when the Bruins gets properly ****** by Philly. Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
Goaltending problems are a big reason the Boston Bruins are mired in their worst funk of the season.
The Philadelphia Flyers are having no such issues.
Ilya Bryzgalov's shutout streak may be over but his run of hot play certainly isn't, so it might be hard for the rolling Flyers not to put him back in net Saturday for a visit to Boston.
Bryzgalov nearly had a fourth straight...
