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 Apr 15 - 11:02 PM

Mar 16 - 10:43 AM

Brian Flynn and Manny Malhotra will be scratched versus the NY Islanders on Saturday night.

Flynn has just five hits and blocks through is first four games with Montreal. But he only put up five goals, 17 points, 37 hits, and 39 blocks in 54 games with the Sabres earlier in the season. So he has no fantasy value. Neither does Malhotra for that matter, whose biggest fantasy contribution has been winning 60% of his 851 draws this season.
Mar 14 - 6:15 PM

Brian Flynn, Manny Malhotra and Mike Weaver will be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Ottawa.

Flynn was acquired from Buffalo early last week. None of these players will see significant ice time even if they do get into the lineup.

Brian Flynn scored the tying goal in the third period and added the shootout winner in Buffalo's 4-3 win over Montreal on Saturday.

The 26-year-old has three goals and five points in 15 games this season. His ice-time has increased in the Sabres' last few games, but he doesn't have any value in standard fantasy leagues.

Brian Flynn sat five straight games as a healthy scratch before getting back into the lineup over the weekend.

He played on Saturday and Sunday, but he's been scratched for nine of Buffalo's first 13 games. Flynn recorded his first goal since Feb. 28 against Detroit in Sunday's contest.

Thu, Oct 23, 2014 10:31:00 AM

Brian Flynn expects to play several different roles this season with the Sabres if he sticks with the team.

"I expect to be bounced around a little bit between different lines and right wing, center, even left wing," he said. "I was prepared for that coming into training camp. I've played a few positions so far but I'm used to it so it's not that big an adjustment for me anymore." He suited up in 79 games with Buffalo last season, while contributing six goals and 13 points. Flynn mostly played as a bottom-six forward and he saw time on the penalty kill. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

Brian Flynn sustained an lower-body injury in Saturday's game against Boston.

He was credited with one shot and three hits in 6:57 of ice time before leaving the game for good. Buffalo plays their regular season finale on Sunday against the Islanders and it wouldn't be surprising if Flynn wasn't available to play.
