With the team slumping - having lost three of the last four games – the Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have made several roster moves.
Brayden Schenn, who was recalled from Adirondack just four games ago, sustained a broken foot last night when blocking a shot against the Montreal Canadiens. Schenn had not posted a point in the four games, and is tied for a team-worst -5 rating.
In addition, left winger Zac Rinaldo and defenseman Erik Gustafsson were both recalled from the Phantoms.

Lindros confirmed the "Legion of Doom" line will skate again this morning in an interview with 590 AM in Toronto.
I have watched back-to-back games that were complete and total crap. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I expect the Philadelphia Flyers to come out and win every game, that would be unreasonable and insane. At this point, I’d settle for some consistency.
So far, this team has been anything BUT consistent. There have been flashes of the good stuff that we,...

Is it pretty safe to call yesterday one of the more ridiculous sporting days of 2011? In hockey, you had your usual wild finishes, but a seventeen-goal game between Winnipeg and Philadelphia stole the show. In college football, Case Keenum threw for nine - again, nine - touchdowns in a single game.
And, that baseball game? Unreal. Can...
