Brandon Manning picked up a goal and two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Manning did all of his damage in the third period, as he registered the primary helpers on goal by Claude Giroux and Nolan Patrick before scoring the flukiest goal you've ever seen. Manning dumped the puck into Ottawa's end, the puck bounced off the corner boards before sliding right into the Senators net. The Flyers blue liner finished the game with a plus-3 rating, three shots on goal, three hits and four blocked shots in 18:04 of ice time. He's now accumulated five points in his last four games. He's up to six goals and 15 points in 47 games this season. Despite his recent surge in offensive production, Manning won't be worth adding in any fantasy format.

Brandon Manning (back) hopes to be 100 percent by the time the regular season begins.

"It's taken longer than I thought," said Manning, who had back surgery in late April. "It was probably one of the toughest summers I've ever had. Not (only) physically, but mentally because every time I tried to get into it, something flared up and I wouldn't feel right. From that aspect, it was really tough. I'm still dealing with it on a day-to-day basis." He resumed skating in mid-August and will play Wednesday night in preseason action against the Islanders.
