Despite enduring a wretched summer, the Philadelphia Flyers manage to inconvenience the Rangers. On top of all their bad news the Flyers have had this off season came the recent announcement that veteran defenseman Andreas Lilja would miss at least the start of the next season, assuming it starts on time.
How does this affect the Rangers? Now, more than ever the Flyers will be looking...
Flyers defenseman Andreas Lilja had left hip surgery last month, and is expected back in late October or early November.
Lilja, 37, had six assists and was a plus-9 last season, his first in Philadelphia. He joins a list of problems on the blue line for the Flyers, who lost out on signing defenseman Shea Weber, when their contract offer for the All-Star was matched by Nashville...

The thinning of the Philadelphia Flyers’ defense has been a major subplot of the offseason, with Matt Carle departing for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Andrej Meszaros suffering an Achilles injury that could keep him out for most, if not all, of the regular season.
This morning, there was more bad news...
Philadelphia Flyers fans, it’s pouring in terms of injuries to your blueline. With Chris Pronger sidelined indefinitely with post-concussion symptoms and Andrej Meszaros out for at least a couple of months with an Achilles tendon injury that required surgery, things looked a little shaky, and now they look shakier: according to Helsinborgs Dagblad’s Linus Ahlin, Andreas Lilja...
Ever since the Flyers' season came to an abrupt end in the Eastern Conference Semifinal, there were rumors in Sweden that Flyers' defenseman Andreas Lilja planned to forgo the final year of his NHL contract and return home this summer to sign with Elitserien club RÃ¶gle BK Ãngelholm.
Not surprisingly, the rumors were false.
Speaking from the U.S. to his hometown...
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."
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.
The Flyers finally received some good news yesterday regarding their injured defensemen, as Andreas Lilja has recovered from his high ankle sprain about three weeks earlier than expected. Lilja suffered the injury following the win against the Montreal Canadiens on “black Friday.”
Lilja was loaned to the Adirondack Phantoms on a conditioning assignment that will continue [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers have lost two more players’ services due to injuries, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi:
The injury bug continues to hit the Flyers. After Friday’s 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens at the Wells Fargo Center, general manager Paul Holmgren said that defenseman Andreas Lilja could miss six weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain...
