Carlo Colaiacovo (flu) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday when the Flyers visit the Penguins.

The veteran defenseman missed the Flyers 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday March 28th but is ok to dress Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. He has played in 27 games this season, picking up just six assists with a minus one rating and 10 penalty minutes. He has no fantasy value.

Carlo Colaiacovo (leg) is doubtful for Tuesday's contest.

Colaiacovo left Monday's contest in the third period due to the ailment. The Flyers are down to five healthy defenseman on the active roster, so they'll have to call someone up. Nothing has been announced yet, but the popular choice among hockey writers is Brandon Manning.

Carlo Colaiacovo is expected to dress on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, it happens through injury, but I don't control those fates. Just how hard I work and being mentally and physically ready and I've done that and more. Emotions can't even describe how I feel right now. I really look forward to getting back in there."
