Matt Read (lower body) returned to action on Saturday.

It was a non-descript return for Read as he had a couple of hits in 11:44 of action which included 2:51 on the penalty kill. He has 11 points in 34 games this season and has little-to-no fantasy value.

Michal Neuvirth gave up three goals on 25 shots Saturday night and failed to go the distance as the Flyers lost 4-1 to the Devils.

Neuvirth has only two complete games in his last six efforts. One of these was a 6-3 loss to the Bruins January 14. The next night against the Capitals, he was brought in for 13 minutes and made five saves on five shots, but that abbreviated game is wedged between two truly disappointing efforts with a GAA of 5.06 against the Bruins and Saturday night’s 4.50 against the Devils. Steve Mason gave up the final goal of the night at the 4:26 mark of the third.
Jan 22 - 12:26 AM

Travis Konecny scored the only goal for the Flyers Saturday night as they lost a 4-1 contest to the Devils.

This is only Konecny’s eighth goal of the season, but he has been fantasy relevant in recent games with four of these coming in the past nine events. Notably, he has not scored an assist in this period despite accumulating 14 assists and 22 points for the season.
Jan 21 - 10:09 PM

Dale Weise, Brandon Manning and Nick Schultz will each be scratched against the Devils on Saturday.

Through 41 games this season Weise has posted just five points with 15 PIMs and 82 hits. Manning meanwhile has picked up nine points with 40 PIMs and 76 hits. Schultz finally has put together four points with 22 hits and 29 blocks in 13 games.

Matt Read (lower body) might be back in the lineup on Saturday.

He skated alongside Michael Raffl and Claude Giroux during Friday's practice. Read has sat out the last two games for the Flyers due to a lower-leg injury.
Jan 21 - 9:14 AM

Michal Neuvirth will 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.
Jan 16 - 8:31 AM

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.
