Filppula (lower-body) is doubtful to play Monday in Colorado.

Filppula left Saturday's game vs. the Panthers after being hit by Vincent Trocheck late in the first period and missed Sunday's practice. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not have much of an update on Filppula's status but labelled him as questionable for Monday's afternoon game. With Filppula likely out, look for Brendan Perlini to draw into the lineup.

The Flyers have acquired Valtteri Filppula, a 2017 4th round pick and a conditional 7th round pick in 2017 from the Lightning for Mark Streit.

At this point in his career, Filppula is more like No.3 centre, who is paid like a No.1 or No.2 centre and the Lightning needed to move him. They took on another big cap-hit in Streit to even things out for this season, but Streit’s deal is up at the end of the season. Filppula could land a No.2 centre role in Philly, bumping Brayden Schenn back to the wing—he comes in with 34 points (7G / 27A) in 59 games this season.

Filppula (upper-body) will not play on Tuesday; could miss the rest of the Lightning’s road-trip.

Filppula suffered an upper-body injury in the Lightning’s win in Columbus on Sunday. He played just 5:03 before retiring to the dressing room and now it looks like it will cost him a least a few games. With Filppula out, Brian Boyle will centre the third line.
