Brian Flynn suffered a neck injury in Tuesday's exhibition game against Boston.

He was hurt during the first period on a hit and left the match because of neck pain. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Oct 5 - 10:46 AM

Brian Flynn (lower body) was activated from the IL on Saturday.

Flynn was out of action for a couple of months with the injury. He ended the season with four goals and 10 points in 54 games after picking up just two assists in his last 23 contests.
Apr 10 - 2:36 AM

Brian Flynn will miss the next six to eight weeks because of a lower-body injury.

Flynn left Tuesday's game against the Lightning and didn't return. The 27-year-old isn't a major offensive contributor for the Habs, but he has been a useful player for them this season. His season could be over.
Feb 10 - 12:23 AM

Brian Flynn scored in the first period of Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Flynn opened the scoring at the 2:48 mark of the first period. Nathan Beaulieu and Charles Hudon picked up the assists on the goal. Flynn has four goals and eight points in 31 games this season. He's a useful player, but isn't a serviceable fantasy option.

Brian Flynn scored a shorthanded marker on Thursday night in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals.

The 27-year-old has never scored more than 17 points in a season, and has six through 27 games so far.

Brian Flynn has been skating on Montreal's second line with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller.

Devante Smith-Pelly and to a lesser extent Dale Weise have been tried on that line as well because the Canadiens have scratched Alexander Semin for the last three games. Flynn has recorded just one goal and two assists in 13 games this season, which doesn't complement the offensive talents of someone like Galchenyuk very well.

The Montreal Canadiens have re-signed Brian Flynn to a two-year/$1.9 million contract.

Flynn was due to become a restricted free agent on Wednesday. He played well in the playoffs for the Habs with three points in six games but is more of a depth forward for Montreal. He had five goals and 17 points in 63 games last season so we really cannot recommend him in fantasy pools.

Brian Flynn will be a healthy scratch for Game 3 Wednesday night versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Flynn was inserted into the lineup for Game 2 Sunday and played 14:18 whiole recording two shots on goal and a minus one rating, but with centerman David Desharnais returning from the flu, Flynn will move back to a reserve role. The Massachusetts native has registered a goal and two assists in six postseason games this year.

Updating a previous item, Brian Flynn will play in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Flynn was supposed to be a healthy scratch again in game two but he will play because David Desharnais has the flu.

Brian Flynn and Manny Malhotra are expected to be healthy scratches in Sunday's game two match-up against Tampa Bay.

Malhotra hasn't played for Montreal in the postseason yet, while Flynn has dressed and contributed. Unfortunately for Flynn, the Canadiens have a lot of healthy bodies right now and unless Michel Therrien gets the urge to change his lineup, Flynn will remain a healthy scratch.

It looks like Brian Flynn will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

After dropping game five by a score of 5-1, the Canadiens will bring P.A. Parenteau into the lineup. Flynn was very good early on in this series, but he hasn't been as visible lately. Manny Maholtra, Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver will also be scratched in this game. Montreal's black aces are: Daniel Carr, Mike Condon, Darren Dietz, Charles Hudon, Brett Lernout, Joey MacDonald and Christian Thomas.

Forward Brian Flynn contributed three points to the Canadiens' 4-3 victory over the visiting Ottawa Senators in the first game of the Eastern Conference First Round playoff series in Montreal Wednesday night.

Flynn scored a goal and assisted on two others in his first Stanley Cup Playoff game. He had only five goals and 12 assists in 63 games with Montreal during the regular season. Torrey Mitchell and Tomas Plekanec scored 15 seconds apart to give Montreal a 2-1 lead at 8:08 of the second period. All-star defenseman P.K. Subban assisted on both goals before he was ejected and assessed a major penalty at 8:23 for slashing Ottawa forward Mark Stone on the right arm. A lot happened during Subban's major. Lars Eller scored a shorthanded goal at 11:42 between Ottawa power-play goals by Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad during the major, which was served by P.A. Parenteau. Flynn assisted on Mitchell's goal and set up Eller's breakaway goal with a pass from his knees before recording his third point of the second with a goal at 17:17. Flynn's goal gave the Canadiens' their third one-goal lead of the period. Game 2 of this all-Canadian series will be played in Montreal Friday night

Brian Flynn (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

Flynn missed 12 days with the injury. He played 14:45 on Saturday and was a plus-one. The winger has five goals and 17 points this. He was traded from Buffalo at the deadline but is only a depth player at this stage of his career.
Sun, Mar 29, 2015 02:05:00 AM

Brian Flynn (upper body) will not play on Tuesday.

It was previously suggested that Flynn could play if necessary, but it's not surprising to hear that Montreal has opted to give him time to recover from his ailment. Manny Malhotra will be in the Canadiens' lineup instead.
