Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Feb 2)
As the schedule is about to kick off tonight, teams are coming out of the woodwork with more injuries and the Flyers are no exception. On Tuesday morning, the announcement came that they expect Michal Neuvirth to miss the next week to 10 days with a lower-body injury and they recalled Anthony Stolarz to fill in his spot. It sounds like Steve Mason is ready to go, after he was dealing with a minor problem before the break, so Stolarz will back him up tonight, when they host the Canadiens.
This isn't quite the way that Neil wants to open up from the All-Star break, as he requires all the starts he can get. Doesn't sound like there will be any this week from Philadelphia, so he'll have to find the points he needs to climb back into the money elsewhere.
