Date: Team: Pos:

Tyrell Goulbourne has been signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flyers.

He has generated 17 goals and 21 assists in 56 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. Philadelphia picked him in the third round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Mar 4 - 4:13 PM

Sean Couturier had a goal in a 3-2 overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

It was Couturier's first marker since Feb. 13. He has 13 goals and 29 points in 64 contests in 2014-15. The Flyers went into this season hoping to see Couturier contribute more offensively, but instead he's actually regressed a little compared to 2013-14 when he recorded 39 points in 82 contests.
Mar 4 - 9:26 AM

Mark Streit registered his ninth goal of the season on Tuesday night, but the Flyers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Calgary.

The veteran blueliner has continued his offensively-productive ways this season and has been one of the league's best performers with the man advantage, as was expected. Sean Couturier also scored for Philadelphia in the losing effort.
Mar 3 - 10:21 PM

Steve Mason allowed three goals on 26 shots Tuesday as the Flyers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Calgary.

Mason had been exceptional in his two outings since returning from injury prior to this one, but his result on this night will leave him wanting more. The Flyers' number one netminder now possesses a 12-13-8 record, but his 2.27 GAA and .924 save percentage proves he deserves better.
Mar 3 - 10:19 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo and Andrew MacDonald will pair together in their return to the Flyers' lineup on Tuesday night against Calgary.

While MacDonald was scratched for just one game, albeit against the NY Rangers, Colaiacovo has been scratched for the past eight games and has 15 games to his credit this season. Though they'll combine for the Flyers' third defensive unit, neither have produced enough value for fantasy purposes.
Mar 3 - 6:24 PM

Nicklas Grossmann will not play on Tuesday night against the Calgary Flames due to an undisclosed upper body injury.

Through 53 games this season, Grossmann has compiled four goals, nine points, 16 PIMs, 71 blocks, and 97 hits. He is not expected to miss much time.
Mar 3 - 6:20 PM

Zac Rinaldo will be scratched against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Due to both a suspension and multiple scratches Rinaldo has seen just nine games in 2015, but has been an effective fantasy goon in that time with 55 PIMs and 40 hits. For the season, he has 92 PIMs and 140 hits in just 40 games.
Mar 3 - 6:17 PM

Steve Mason will make the start against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

The Flyers come in trailing the Bruins by six points for the final Wild Card slot, with the Panthers in between. Meaning the Flyers need Mason to continue to play at his 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage level through 36 games this season, and hopefully improve on his 12-13-7 record. This will be his first start against the Flames as a Flyer, and in his first dozen starts, Mason holds a 5-4-3 record with 34 goals against.
Mar 3 - 5:01 PM

Radko Gudas (knee) isn't expected to return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Gudas was acquired by the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday as part of the Braydon Coburn trade. He's a physical, defensive defenseman that's also capable of chipping in offensively and should be a significant part of Philadelphia's blueline next season.
Mar 3 - 11:42 AM

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has inked a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia.

He has contributed four goals and four assists in 62 games this season. Bellemare will turn 30 years of age on Friday and this is his first season in the NHL.
Mar 2 - 4:10 PM

Ray Emery (lower body) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

That's based on what the roster on the Flyers' website is showing at least. It would make sense given that Philadelphia has already sent Anthony Stolarz to the minors, leaving the Flyers with two goatlenders including Emery.
Mar 2 - 11:28 AM

Anthony Stolarz has been returned to AHL Lehigh Valley.

Stolarz was on the Flyers' roster for less than 24 hours. It seems Ray Emery has recovered from his lower-body injury and that's the reason for the move.
Mar 2 - 11:26 AM

The 2015 first-round draft pick that the Philadelphia Flyers are getting as part of the Braydon Coburn trade might not be the Tampa Bay Lightning's.

It almost certainly will be, but in the unlikely event that Tampa Bay somehow fails to make the playoffs and then wins the draft lottery, Philadelphia will receive the New York Rangers' top pick instead. The Lightning got the Rangers' first-round selection as part of the Martin St. Louis trade.
Mar 2 - 10:43 AM

When Radko Gudas is ready to return from a knee injury, he'll be in the lineup for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gudas has been traded to the Flyers, along with 2015 first round and third round picks for Braydon Coburn. Gudas has five points, 115 hits, 63 blocks and 34 penalty minutes in 31 contests this season. He hasn't played since Dec. 29 after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
Mar 2 - 7:28 AM

Nicklas Grossman (upper body) said he feels good but he is unsure if he will be able to play in Tuesday's game against Calgary.

Grossman suffered the injury after blocking a shot in Saturday's win over the Rangers. He is expected to go through some more tests on Monday and those results will determine if he will be able to play.
