Andy MacDonald and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Canucks on Sunday.

It'll be the first time since Nov. 19th that MacDonald has been sat down. Through 50 games this season the veteran defender has two goals and 13 points along with 105 blocks.
Feb 19 - 3:46 PM

Michal Neuvirth will tend the net on Sunday against the Canucks.

He blanked the Canucks earlier in the season on just 14 shots. Since the start of the 2017 portion of the calendar Neuvirth is 5-5-1 with just 24 goals against in 12 starts.
Feb 19 - 3:26 PM

Dale Weise will replace the injured Jordan Weal in the Flyers lineup Sunday and play alongside Jakob Voracek and Sean Couturier.

That's a nice jump from the press box as Weise has been a healthy scratch in the last two games. He has five points in 46 games this season but may be worth a flier (pun intended) in daily fantasy on Sunday as he did score 14 times last season.
Feb 19 - 8:19 AM

Look for Andrew MacDonald to be a healthy scratch on Sunday.

This has not happened since November 19 when he replaced Michael Del Zotto in the lineup but the reverse will occur on Sunday as Del Zotto, who played Thursday as their seventh defenseman, will get in as the Flyers go with the traditional six man blueline. MacDonald has two goals and 13 points in 50 games this season as he has only one point in his last 21 games.
Feb 19 - 8:15 AM

Jordan Weal (upper body) won't play in Sunday's match against Vancouver.

The 24-year-old is still searching for his first NHL point through 17 games, including three this season. He's been a career near point-per-game player down on the farm, including 47 points in 43 games with Lehigh Valley this season.
Feb 18 - 3:50 PM

Jordan Weal sustained an upper-body injury on Thursday.

Weal was hurt in the first period. That made things particularly trying for the Flyers because they decided to dress seven defensemen, which meant that after Weal went down they had just 10 forwards. He said he was fine after the game, but his status is unclear for Sunday. He has no points in three games with the Flyers this season.
Feb 17 - 5:15 AM

Michael Del Zotto (ankle) returned to action on Thursday February 16.

It was Del Zotto's first game since Jan. 21. He had a minus-two rating in 13:03 minutes of ice time.
Feb 17 - 3:05 AM

Michal Neuvirth was shelled for six goals on 25 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Oilers on Thursday.

He didn't get a lot of help from teammates in this ugly road loss. He's started three straight games for the Flyers and even on back-to-back nights with game in Calgary on Wednesday. The Flyers are struggling with losses in five of their last six games. It will be interesting see how they distribute the starts the rest of the way.
Feb 17 - 12:39 AM

Brayden Schenn scored and added an assist in a 6-3 loss to Edmonton on Thursday.

Schenn's power-play goal snapped a six game goal-less drought and his points snap a five game point-less streak. His 37 points in 55 games has him about on pace to match his 59 from last season. Wayne Simmonds scored 24th in a losing effort.
Feb 17 - 12:29 AM

Roman Lyubimov and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Oilers on Thursday.

Through 42 games this season the rookie Lyubimov has posted five points with 25 hits. The veteran defender Schultz meanwhile has picked up four helpers along with 30 hits and 32 blocks in 16 games.
Feb 16 - 7:34 PM

The Flyers have tabbed Michal Neuvirth to guard their crease against the Oilers on Thursday.

He's been sensational since the calendar turned to 2017. Neuvirth has posted a 5-4-1 record with a .926 save percentage with just 18 goals against in that span. Which includes just two games with at least three goals against.
Feb 16 - 2:14 PM

Michal Neuvirth blocked 20 of 22 shots Wednesday night as the Flyers lost a 3-1 contest to the Flames.

That gave Neuvirth a respectable save percentage of .909. A third goal went into an empty net as Mark Giordano was basically trying to clear the puck from in front of his own goal. This was the fifth time in his last six games Neuvirth earned a save percentage north of .900.
Feb 16 - 12:39 AM

Nick Cousins scored the only goal of the night as the Flyers lost a 3-1 contest to the Flames on Wednesday.

Cousins sixth goal of the season was aided by Mark Read’s sixth assist, but Cousins would go on to play an even bigger role in the game. At the 7:41 mark of the first he drew a five minute penalty and game misconduct by Alex Chiasson for spearing. At the end of that power-play, the Flames had a two-man advantage for two minutes after Sean Monahan was dinged for a delay of game. The Flyers were unable to score for that power-play and the rest of the night.
Feb 16 - 12:33 AM

Dale Weise will sit out healthy on Wednesday when the Flyers play the Flames on the road.

The Flyers will go with the same lineup from last game with the only change being Weise out for Roman Lyubimov. Weise has five points in 46 games, and had dressed for the last five games. The other scratches are Nick Schultz and Michael Del Zotto.
Feb 15 - 9:25 PM

Roman Lyubimov will get back in the lineup on Wednesday night against Calgary.

He was scratched on Saturday after he played in his 41st game of the season last Thursday against the Islanders. Lyubimov has four goals and one assist in 2016-17. Dale Weise will head to the press box instead.
