Claude Giroux recorded an assist in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Giroux extended his point streak to six contests. He leads the league with 27 assists and is tied for fifth place with 35 points in 30 games this season.

Steve Mason was beaten for two goals on 22 shots on Tuesday as he and the Flyers suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Lightning.

The Flyers number one netminder can usually point to his teammates as the main reason for his struggles, but that wasn't the case tonight as Tampa Bay managed a relatively low shot total. His record falls to 6-10-4 with the loss while he possesses a 2.58 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Dec 16 - 9:55 PM

Wayne Simmonds was the only member of the Flyers to score in Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Lightning.

Simmonds netted his 14th goal of the campaign during a first period power play and appears well on his way to eclipsing the 30-goal plateau for the first time in his career. Claude Giroux and Mark Streit picked up assists on the tally.

Vincent Lecavalier, Carlo Colaiacovo, and Michael Del Zotto will all be healthy scratches on Tuesday night.

Coach Berube doesn't want to mix up his forward lines at the moment, "I think what plays into it is how they're playing and the chemistry they have right now. That is more important to me." As for Colaiacovo and Del Zotto, one may not have to think very hard about their NHL futures, either.
Dec 16 - 6:10 PM

Steve Mason will get the nod Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Miraculously, the Flyers sit just five points behind the New York Rangers for the second Wild Card slot coming into tonight's game. A win over the best offense in hockey could go a long way towards toppling a rival and into the playoff picture.

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) is healthy enough to play on Tuesday, but he won't

Between Lecavalier's minor injury and his time serving as a healthy scratch, he has already missed six straight contests. Even when he has played this season, his ice time has been minimal. Unless he gets traded, we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 1:03 PM

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) isn't expected to play on Tuesday.

Lecavalier's injury isn't serious, but there's a good chance he won't be in the lineup even if he's available. He was a healthy scratch for five straight games before missing a contest due to his ailment.
Dec 16 - 11:14 AM

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) took part in Monday's practice.

Lecavalier skated on the Flyers' extra line, which suggests that he won't play on Tuesday. Whether that's due to his injury or coach Craig Berube's decision is hard to say. Even before Lecavalier was hurt, he spent five games in the press box.
Dec 15 - 11:17 AM

Travis Sanheim has been cut by team Canada's world junior hockey team.

TSN's Mark Masters was the first to break the news. Sanheim was selected 17th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in last June's entry draft. The 18-year-old will head back to junior.
Dec 14 - 5:31 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers will allow Robert Hagg to play for Team Sweden at the World Junior Hockey Championships.

Hagg is playing for the Flyers' AHL affiliate in Lehigh Valley. The 19-year-old has won silver medals in back-to-back World Junior tournaments with Sweden.
Dec 14 - 1:22 PM

Scott Laughton scored the first NHL goal of his career on Saturday.

Laughton also chipped in with an assist. Hopefully you read our comment on Laughton Saturday morning and took our suggestion of taking a flier on him. The Flyer now has a goal and four points in 13 games this season.
Dec 14 - 8:28 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday, as Steve Mason stopped 25 out of 26 shots.

Mason's record is now 6-9-4 with a .918 save percentage and 2.60 this season. While his record has been great, Mason's been solid so far.
Dec 13 - 3:50 PM

Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier extended his scoring streak to six straight games (three goals, four assists) as his team beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday.

Could this be a sign of a breakout for the eighth pick of the 2011 NHL Draft? At 22, there's always a chance that he could have untapped potential. The Flyers are getting more offense from their supporting cast lately, even though Claude Giroux (two assists) and Jakub Voracek (one goal, one assist) are still playing very well.
Dec 13 - 3:45 PM

Michael Del Zotto was expected by some to return to the Philadelphia Flyers against the Carolina Hurricanes, but that ended up not being the case.

"MDZ" seemingly has some offensive potential, yet he's simply in a tough spot in his career and isn't much of a fantasy factor at this point. Naturally, Rotoworld will note if he enjoys a revitalization.
Dec 13 - 1:32 PM

Ryan White (pectoralis muscle) has been cleared for contact.

It is unknown if White will return to the Flyers or be sent to the minors as he is on a two-way contract. Stay tuned.
