Nick Schultz scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win against Winnipeg on Thursday.

Schultz was playing in his second straight game after dealing with a minor upper-body injury. He has 11 points in 48 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 11:12 AM

Brayden Schenn had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 victory on Thursday.

Schenn has 11 goals and 31 points in 50 games this season. He might breakout next season, but for now he should comfortably surpass his career-high of 41 points.
Jan 30 - 11:10 AM

Steve Mason helped the Flyers trip up Winnipeg on Thursday night with 36 saves in a 5-2 victory.

Winnipeg outplayed the Flyers at times, but it was Mason who kept the Flyers comfortable throughout the second and third periods. Mason improves to 10-12-6 this season with a .922 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average.
Jan 29 - 11:53 PM

Wayne Simmonds pitched in a goal and an assist in Philadelphia's 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Thursday night.

Simmonds has points in each of the Flyers' games since the All Star Break, and 31 overall in 50 games so far this season. He still has a long way to go to come close to the 60 points he earned last season.
Jan 29 - 11:33 PM

Steve Mason will get the start in Thursday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

It will be Mason's first start since January 10. The 26-year-old played most of Tuesday's game against Arizona, but he did come on in relief of Ray Emery. Mason is over the knee injury that kept him out of the Flyers' lineup for six games. He has a disappointing 9-12-6 record to go along with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage.

Scott Laughton (upper body) skated for the first time on Wednesday.

"He took a real turn [on Tuesday] and things are looking up," GM Ron Hextall said. "We're going to take our time with him." He has been sidelined since Jan. 14 with a suspected concussion.
Jan 29 - 3:51 PM

Flyers GM Ron Hextall thinks there could be definitive news regarding Kimmo Timonen in the coming days.

Timonen might still return before the end of the season. At this point the Flyers are a long shot to make the playoffs and Hextall suggested that their position will be a factor. However, Timonen returning would at least give him the opportunity to retire on a positive note, should he chose to hang up his skates this summer.

Shayne Gostisbehere (knee) should be back sometime in February.

Gostisbehere underwent surgery for a torn ACL in November. Prior to that he made his NHL debut on Oct. 25 and played again on Oct. 28. He was limited to less than 13 minutes in each contest. When he's healthy enough to play, he'll probably serve in the minors rather than immediately be called up by Philadelphia.
Jan 28 - 3:23 PM

Nicklas Grossmann (upper body) is out Thursday after all.

Flyers Craig Berube said Grossmann needs more time before he rejoins the lineup, but it shouldn't be long now. In the meantime, Carlo Colaiacovo will probably continue to play.
Jan 28 - 1:18 PM

Nicklas Grossmann will probably rejoin the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

If that happens, then Carlo Colaiacovo will likely be a healthy scratch. Grossmann has three goals and eight points in 41 games in 2014-15.
Jan 28 - 12:45 PM

Rob Zepp has been sent down to the minors.

Zepp was summoned to give the Flyers a second goaltender while Steve Mason recovered from a knee injury. Mason was able to return on Tuesday, so Zepp's demotion was anticipated. Zepp has a 2.92 GAA and .889 save percentage in six games with Philadelphia.
Jan 28 - 11:09 AM

Nick Schultz (upper body) returned to action on Tuesday January 27.

He didn't play in Philadelphia's last game before the All-Star break because of an upper-body injury. Schultz recorded two shots and saw 20:56 of ice time in 4-3 shootout win over Arizona.
Jan 28 - 1:49 AM

Steve Mason earned a victory Tuesday despite starting the game on the bench as the Flyers upended Arizona in a shootout by a score of 4-3.

Mason declared himself fit to return from a knee injury on this night, but Ray Emery received the starting nod and lasted fewer than six minutes before he was removed from the game after allowing two quick goals. Mason stopped 22 of the 23 shots he faced in relief and improved his record to 9-12-6 in the process. His GAA is now 2.41 while his save percentage stands at .921.
Jan 27 - 11:08 PM

Wayne Simmonds scored a goal for Philadelphia on Tuesday as they scored a 4-3 win over the Coyotes.

Simmonds buried his 17th goal of the campaign during a first period power play and he now stands one point shy of 30 for the season. Michael Del Zotto and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Flyers in the victory.
Jan 27 - 10:59 PM

Rob Zepp will be a healthy scratch against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

With Steve Mason expected to start against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, and Ray Emery starting tonight, Zepp's time with the big boys appears to be drawing to a close.
