Michal Neuvirth (knee) is expected to start skating again on Monday and hopefully return to the Flyers lineup in 10 days.

Neuvirth was projected to miss four-six weeks so this will be on the early side of the prognostication if true. Neuvirth was 4-2 with a .859 save percentage and a GAA of 3.54 before his injury and should get about 40 percent of the starts once he returns to action. Use him accordingly.

Radko Gudas is expected to return to action on Tuesday after missing a couple of games with the flu.

Gudas sat out Saturday and Sunday. He has a goal and seven points in 19 games with 21 penalty minutes, 50 blocked shots and 82 hits. His stats in the extra categories are something to behold and get him quickly back in your lineup if he was taken out.
Dec 5 - 9:17 AM

Steve Mason kept the Flyers rolling with 30 saves in Sunday's victory over Nashville.

Mason allowed two goals on 32 shots to earn his ninth win of the year. The 28-year-old is now 9-8-3 with a 2.76 goals against average and .904 save percentage. Mason has won four straight.
Dec 4 - 11:50 PM

Wayne Simmonds scored twice on Sunday to keep up his productive pace and lead the Flyers past Nashville.

Simmonds now has 13 goals and 24 points in 27 games this season. The 28-year-old has a torrid 19.1 shooting percetage, but he's falling way short of the 147 penalty minutes he accumulated last year.
Dec 4 - 11:43 PM

Nick Schultz and Scott Laughton will be scratched against the Predators on Sunday.

This will be Schultz's 12th straight game as a healthy scratch, which does not bode well for his future with the team. Laughton has just two games to his credit with the Flyers this season.
Dec 4 - 4:14 PM

Radko Gudas (illness) is not yet healthy enough to return to action on Sunday.

Through 19 games thus far he has six helpers and seven points along with 21 PIMs, 50 blocks, and 82 hits. Consider him day-to-day.
Dec 4 - 4:11 PM

It's confirmed, Steve Mason will take on the Predators on Sunday.

The Flyers are riding a four-game winning streak. Mason comes in with an 8-8-3 record with a 2.80 GAA and .902 save percentage this season.
Dec 4 - 4:10 PM

Steve Mason is the expected goalie for the Flyers in Sunday's match with Nashville.

Coach Dave Hakstoll noted that Mason wasn't taxed much in the win over the Blackhawks, and considering their, four-game winning streak he'd like to keep rolling with the hot hand. He holds an 8-8-3 record with a 2.80 GAA and .902 save percentage this season.
Dec 4 - 2:48 PM

Ivan Provorov showed the Blackhawks how good he really is on Saturday.

Provorov scored twice to lead the Flyers to the win after going minus-five earlier this season in Chicago when the two teams first met. "This was a little bit better," Provorov said. "The last game, I had a few bad bounces. I didn't play my best at that game. But I put it behind me and learned from it. This was a better result." Provorov scored twice in 31 seconds and now has three goals and 11 points in 26 games. He is a keeper.
Dec 4 - 8:51 AM

Brayden Schenn scored his first goal in 10 games to cap off the Flyers' 3-1 win over the Blackhawks on Saturday.

The young veteran picked up four helpers during the goal drought. He's now up to four goals an 15 points in 23 games this season.
Dec 3 - 6:57 PM

Ivan Provorov only needed one shift to put the Flyers past the Blackhawks on Saturday.

The 19-year-old phenom scored twice in 31 seconds early in the second period to put the Flyers up 2-1, and they'd go on to win 3-1. Provorov is now up to three goals and 11 points in 26 games this season.
Dec 3 - 6:55 PM

Steve Mason and the Flyers beat the Blackhawks 3-1 on Saturday.

Mason turned away 26 of 27 shots in the effort, and simply looked sensational. Mark it five of his last six games in which Mason has allowed two or fewer goals, strongly suggesting that he's finally reaching mid-season form. He's now 8-8-3 with a 2.80 GAA and .902 save percentage this season.
Dec 3 - 6:53 PM

Steve Mason will face Chicago on Saturday afternoon.

Mason hasn't played Western foes well this season, going 2-3-1 with 17 goals against and an .886 save percentage. He's also already seen half a game's worth of action against Chicago this season, stopping nine of 11. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Dec 3 - 12:51 PM

The Flyers will scratch Nick Schultz for the 11th straight game.

If he were sick or injured, he'd been on I/R long ago. This is just losing your role with the team. The veteran defender was having a nice season with three points in nine games up until the benching.
Dec 3 - 12:48 PM

Radko Gudas is too sick to play Saturday against Chicago.

Tough break for the Flyers. Through 19 games thus far he has six helpers and seven points along with 21 PIMs, 50 blocks, and 82 hits. Quite beastly in the right setting. Consider him day-to-day.
