Jakub Voracek downed the Panthers with the overtime winner on Tuesday.

The goal, the ninth of his season, gives him points in five of his last six games. He's recorded seven points in that span as well. He's up to 24 points in 29 games as well.
Dec 6 - 11:29 PM

Claude Giroux recorded his second two-point game over his last four matches during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

The Flyers' Captain's pair of points were both of the helping variety, giving him 18 helpers and 25 points in 28 games this season.
Dec 6 - 11:28 PM

Wayne Simmonds recorded his second straight two-goal game during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

He has three power play markers in the span as well, meaning eight of his 15 goals have come on the man-advantage. In fact 13 of his 26 points have come in that fashion. That's pretty impressive to say the least.
Dec 6 - 11:25 PM

Steve Mason came to work during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers.

He stopped 42 of 44 shots, including all three asked of him while on the penalty kill. The Flyers have won six straight now, with Mason taking five. This is the second time in the streak he's made as many stops as well. Mason is now 10-8-3 with a .908 save percentage and 2.71 GAA.

Nick Schultz will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

Schultz has suited up in nine games this season and he's accumulated three assists. Matt Read and Radko Gudas will miss the game because of injuries.

Radko Gudas won't be back in the lineup on Tuesday even though he has recovered from the flu.

He will get an additional full practice on Wednesday to help him better prepare for a return Thursday against Edmonton. Gudas skated with his teammates on Monday and Tuesday.
Dec 6 - 3:19 PM

Steve Mason will get a chance to keep rolling on Tuesday night when he starts against Florida.

He has posted four wins with a 1.71 GAA and a .945 save percentage in his last four outings. Mason will start for the 11th time in the past 12 matches for the Flyers.
Dec 6 - 2:34 PM

Scott Laughton has been sent back to Lehigh Valley of the AHL.

He has appeared in two games with Philadelphia this season and had been sitting as a healthy scratch lately. Laughton has eight points in eight matches in the minors.
Dec 6 - 12:22 PM

Taylor Leier has been called up by Philadelphia.

He has accumulated 20 points in 22 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL this season. Leier has no points in six outings with the Flyers, though.
Dec 6 - 12:19 PM

Matt Read's upper-body injury is reportedly an oblique muscle pull.

Read was hurt when Filip Forsberg knocked him into the net during Sunday's contest. Philadelphia announced that Read is expected to miss four weeks.
Dec 6 - 11:08 AM

Steve Mason has been superb lately.

Mason has a 1.71 GAA and .945 save percentage in his last four contests. That's in contrast to his struggles for most of the 2016-17 campaign. In fact, prior to those four games, his save percentage stood at .892 through 17 games, but now it's climbed to .904 this season. Mason will try to keep that hot streak going when he starts again on Tuesday.
Dec 6 - 11:05 AM

Matt Read will be sidelined for four weeks with an upper body injury.

Read sustained the injury early in Sunday's game. He has six goals and 10 points in 27 contests in 2016-17.

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.
Dec 5 - 9:21 AM

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.
