Michal Neuvirth will probably start on Saturday.

Neuvirth saw his personal three-game winning streak end on Jan. 14 when he allowed five goals on 38 shots against the Boston Bruins. That was his most recent start. He has a 3.30 GAA and .877 save percentage in 13 games this season.
Jan 20 - 5:30 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere was a minus-two in his return to the Flyers lineup after being a healthy scratch Saturday.

It was the second time this season that Gostisbehere was sent to the press box. He has four goals and 19 points in 43 games this season. "You can obviously let it rattle you and let it set you back, but I'm going to go out there and do whatever it takes to help the team," he said. "If that's me being in the press box, that's me being in the press box. I'm here to help the team in any way possible." He is still fantasy worthy but Gostisbehere is not the offensive machine he was last season when he finished third in Calder voting with 17 goals and 46 points in 64 games.
Jan 16 - 8:35 AM

Claude Giroux was a minus-three on Sunday.

The Flyers were whipped 5-0 by the Capitals and Giroux goalless drought is now at 11 games. He has been an assist machine with 28 in 46 games but Giroux has struggled recently and multiple changes of linemates has not helped. Giroux will eventually break out of this slump so you should continue to keep him in your lineup if the alternative is not any better.

Michal Neuvirth finished Sunday's 5-0 loss in net after relieving starter Steve Mason with just over 13 minutes to go in the game.

Neuvirth turned aside all five shots he faced. With the Flyers heading into their five-day bye week on an 3-8-3 slide after winning 10 straight, Neuvirth could be in a good position to grab some starts with some consistent play.
Jan 15 - 3:27 PM

Steve Mason and the Flyers had no fun in Sunday's matinee against the Capitals, and will head into their five-day bye in the midst of a big slump.

Mason made just 12 of 17 stops asked of him, including two of three while on the kill during the 5-0 loss to Washington. He was also pulled with just under 15 minutes to go in the third after the Caps scored their fourth tally of the third period. Mason's now 14-15-6 on the season, and the Flyers are 3-8-3 since winning 10 straight games. Lucky or not, they'll have five days to regroup and reassess before returning to action next week.
Jan 15 - 3:25 PM

Brandon Manning and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Capitals on Sunday.

Through 39 games thus far Manning has posted just nine points along with 35 blocks, 40 PIMs and 76 hits. Schultz meanwhile has picked up four points plus 22 hits and 29 blocks in just 13 games.
Jan 15 - 12:31 PM

Steve Mason will be in net against the Capitals on Sunday.

Just once over his last five games has Mason allowed fewer than three goals against. He's 0-2-2 with 16 goals against and an .876 save percentage over that span as well. Play him only if you have to.
Jan 15 - 12:24 PM

It's true, Shayne Gostisbehere will indeed play in Sunday's match against the Capitals after sitting out Saturday's game versus Boston.

Through 42 games, the offensive defender has posted four goals and 19 points along with 51 blocks. If you haven't already, get him back in your lineup.
Jan 15 - 12:15 PM

Chris VandeVelde picked up an assist Saturday and stopped a 15 game pointless drought.

The forward has five goals and 11 points in 45 games with a minus-seven rating. He has no real fantasy value.
Jan 15 - 10:07 AM

Brayden Schenn extended his point streak to five games during Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.

The young veteran now has 15 goals and 30 points through 42 games this season. He still has a good chance to top last year's career highs of 26 goals and 59 points.
Jan 14 - 5:22 PM

Wayne Simmonds scored a goal during his 650th career NHL game on Saturday.

The marker gives him 18 goals and 34 points through 45 games this season, and he now has 189 goals and 378 points for his career. He's come a long way since being just a scrawny kid in LA's system.
Jan 14 - 5:20 PM

Claude Giroux picked up another pair of helpers during the 6-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday.

Philadelphia's captain now has 28 assists on the season to give him 38 points in 45 games thus far.
Jan 14 - 5:18 PM

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had a memory to make in his 200th career NHL game.

Bellemare picked a goal for his sixth point of the season, and the 32nd of his career during the 6-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday. He may never win the Hart Trophy, but he'll always be No. 1 in the NHL hearts of France.
Jan 14 - 5:17 PM

Jakub Voracek continued his torrid streak of point during Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.

The talented winger picked up his 28th helper of the season, giving him 41 points in 45 games thus far. If he's able to keep up the pace through April, it'll be his third season with Philadelphia at a near point-per-game rate.
Jan 14 - 5:15 PM

Mark Streit picked up a point in his long-awaited return to to the Flyers' blue line during Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.

The veteran blue liner hadn't played since Dec. 11th due to a shoulder injury. Through 32 games he now has five goals and 17 points, including his 12th helper today.
