Luke Schenn (lower body) is unlikely to play for the rest of the season, according to Flyers GM Ron Hextall.

"We will give final medical information when we have it in full," said Hextall. Schenn has been sidelined for the last three games with a lower-body injury.

The idle Philadelphia Flyers were officially eliminated from the playoff race on Sunday.

Philadelphia enjoyed a run of five straight postseason appearances from 2008-2012 and reached the Stanley Cup Final during that stretch. However, the Flyers have only made the playoffs once in their last three seasons and haven't won a series since 2012. This was just Craig Berube's second campaign as the Flyers' bench boss, but he might still be relieved of his duties in response to Philadelphia's poor showing.

The Flyers have sent Oliver Lauridsen back to the minors.

Well that was quick! Lauridsen was recalled yesterday and sent back last night. He had a cup of coffee but we do not think that a meal was included before he was sent back. Lauridsen played 10:26 and was a minus-one in his first NHL game of the season.
Mar 29 - 10:20 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers have sent defenseman Mark Alt to Lehigh Valley of the AHL.

Alt was recalled because Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo were out with the flu. If the duo are still unable to go on Wednesday when the Flyers play the Penguins, Alt may be recalled.

Michael Del Zotto played 30:18 in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to San Jose.

The Flyers were in big trouble as Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo were out with the flu and Luke Schenn and Andrew MacDonald were out with injuries so Del Zotto picked up a lot of the slack. Rookie Brandon Manning played 25:07 while the Flyers called up a couple of rookies in Mark Alt and Oliver Lauridsen to fill out the blueline.
Mar 29 - 10:12 AM

Oliver Lauridsen was called up from the minors.

The Flyers were in desperate need of defensemen with a couple out with injury and a couple down with the flu so Lauridsen was recalled and made his seasonal NHL debut. He played 10:26 and was a minus-one. Expect to see him back in the minors once Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo recover from the flu.
Mar 29 - 2:05 AM

Mark Alt was called up from the minors on Saturday and made his NHL debut.

Alt was recalled as Andrew MacDonald, Mark Streit and Luke Schenn were all on the shelf. The defenseman played 9:25 and was a minus-one. He is the son of for All-Pro defensive tackle John Alt.

The Philadelphia Flyers keep leaving points on the table as they dropped a 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Steve Mason's record says it all: 15-17-11 despite a sparkling .927 save percentage. Mason ranks among the biggest reasons to feel more optimistic about Philly's future, especially since he's only 26.
Mar 28 - 4:54 PM

Fantasy owners have to be delighted to see Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek ramp up his production, even in meaningless games such as Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Voracek collected two assists on Saturday, giving him seven helpers in a four-game point streak. He now has 76 points in 2014-15, the second-highest total in the NHL.
Mar 28 - 4:52 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers won't have blueliner Carlo Colaiacovo on Saturday because of the flu.

The Flyers face the San Jose Sharks. JFYI as he's no longer much of a factor in fantasy.
Mar 28 - 12:29 PM

Mark Streit won't be able to play for the Philadelphia Flyers against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

The productive offensive defenseman is out with the flu. Streit, 37, has nine goals and 45 points in 75 games so far this season.
Mar 28 - 12:26 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have not had a lot of success of late against the San Jose Sharks.

The Flyers are 1-10-3 with two ties in their last 16 matchups. Fortunately they do not play them a lot as ties have not been an NHL stat since the first lockout in 2004. The two teams tangle Saturday afternoon and while it has not been confirmed, look for Steve Mason to get the start for Philadelphia.

Nick Boynton, a former NHL defenseman and current radio analyst for the Arizona Coyotes, was arraigned in Buffalo on Friday.

Boynton faces a slew of charges including assault after he was arrested at a casino in Buffalo on Thursday. His bail was set at $10,000. Boynton was given a leave of absence by the Coyotes who will also look into the incident. Boynton played 11 seasons in the NHL and played for Boston, Phoenix, Florida, Anaheim, Chicago and Philadelphia. His claim to fame is that he was drafted in the first round twice, once by the the Capitals ninth overall in 1997 and when he failed to sign, he was taken two years later by the Bruins 21st overall.

Flyers coach Craig Berube has a simple reason for why he hasn't given Vincent Lecavalier a lot of playing time this season.

"He just hasn't produced and he gets power-play time, too," Berube said. "He hasn't produced." Lecavalier has just seven goals and 18 points in 51 contests this season. At the same time he's been limited to 12:47 minutes per contest, so the fact that his production is down isn't surprising. At any rate, Lecavalier needs a change of scenery, but we doubt he'll get one given his cap hit and the fact that he won't be an unrestricted free agent until 2018.
Mar 27 - 6:01 PM

Look for Vincent Lecavalier to play on Saturday.

Lecavalier has routinely been listed as a healthy scratch this season, but he might play in the remainder of the Flyers' games. That's because Wayne Simmonds (leg) is done for the season. Lecavalier has seven goals and 18 points in 51 contests.
