Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol said Radko Gudas has to work on his game.

The Flyers coach said "inconsistencies in his game" and that "he'll address and we'll address and clean it up a bit." The 25-year-old has no goals, three assists, a minus-4 rating and 53 penalty minutes this season. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Nick Cousins picked up his first point in the NHL in Sunday's loss to the Washington Capitals.

He picked up the second assist on Michael Del Zotto's first period goal. It took Cousins 17 games to register his first point. The 22-year-old has played in six contests in 2015-16. Cousins is getting a chance to center Philadelphia's second line because of the injury to Sean Couturier.
Feb 8 - 9:38 AM

Nick Schultz picked up his first goal of the season during Sunday's 3-2 loss to Washington.

Schultz now has 30 career goals and 168 points in 1,010 games. Suffice it to say he's not much of a scorer but his longevity is impressive nevertheless.
Feb 7 - 5:49 PM

Michael Del Zotto gave the Flyers the early lead, but it wasn't enough as the Flyers fell to the Capitals 3-2 on Sunday.

It was Del Zotto's fourth goal and 13th point of the season, a far cry from his 10 goals and 32 points registered last season.
Feb 7 - 5:47 PM

Steve Mason was spotted an early lead, but he couldn't hold on to it as the Flyers fell to the Capitals 3-2 on Sunday.

Mason made 27 of the 30 stops asked of him, including two on special teams. Mason's record falls to 12-13-7 on the season.
Feb 7 - 5:46 PM

Once again the trio of Brandon Manning, RJ Umberger, and Jordan Weal will each be scratched, this time it's against Washington on Sunday.

Weal has seen just one game with the Flyers since being acquired, while both Manning and Umberger haven't played since Jan. 27th. A span of four games including this afternoon.
Feb 7 - 12:03 PM

Steve Mason will be between the pipes in Sunday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Mason is coming off a shootout loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon. The 27-year-old has a 12-12-7 record with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season. The game gets underway at noon EST, so adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
Feb 7 - 11:42 AM

Wayne Simmonds won't be suspended for his punch to the head of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh.

Simmonds was given a match penalty on Saturday afternoon while McDonagh left the game for precautionary reasons and did not return. The NHL's Department of Player Safety decided the game misconduct was enough of a punishment for Simmonds. He will play in Sunday afternoon's tilt against the Washington Capitals. Insert him into your fantasy lineup.
Feb 7 - 11:06 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere's current seven-game point streak is the longest ever in the Flyers' history by a rookie defenseman, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Gostisbehere also holds the second longest point streak of any Flyers rookie in history, behind forward Mikael Renberg's 10-game stretch during the 1993-94 campaign. Gostisbehere has nine goals and 26 points in 32 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 7 - 6:07 AM

Steve Mason turned aside 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers.

A solid performance from Mason wasn't good enough for the win on Saturday. He gave up the game tying goal to Keith Yandle with just under 13 seconds remaining in the game before allowing two goals in the shootout. Mason drops his record to 12-12-7 with the shootout loss.
Feb 6 - 4:14 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere recorded a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

He now was 10 points in his last seven games. He was cut after a rough training camp with the Flyers but hasn't looked back since being recalled from the minors in November. He has turned into one of the best fantasy assets this season and will likely be on many championship winning teams.
Feb 6 - 4:10 PM

Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds received a match penalty on Saturday.

After receiving a cross-check to the head, Simmonds responded by punching Ryan McDonagh with his gloves on. Ryan White has taken Wayne Simmonds spot on the top powerplay and has produced a goal for the Flyers.
Feb 6 - 2:27 PM

Steve Mason will start for the Philadelphia Flyer on Saturday afternoon against the Rangers.

Mason will be looking for his third win in a row, which would match a season high for him. He is 7-3-2 in his career against the Rangers with a .934 save percentage and 2.16 GAA.
Feb 6 - 12:43 PM

Sean Couturier (lower body) is on the injured reserve list.

Couturier will miss the next four weeks, so it only makes sense for the Flyers to put him on the IR. He has nine goals and 24 points in 40 contests this season.
Feb 5 - 5:51 PM

Nick Cousins has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

This roster move was likely in response to the fact that Sean Couturier will miss the next four weeks with a lower-body injury. Cousins has 12 goals and 38 points in 38 AHL contests this season.
