Philadelphia Flyers News


Lyon will start Tuesday against the Canadiens.

Lyon entered Sunday’s game against the Rangers after Michal Neuvirth went down with a lower-body injury, making 25 saves on 26 shots en route to picking up the win for the Flyers. Despite his strong play on Sunday, the Flyers still felt it necessary to acquire Petr Mrazek from the Red Wings, though Lyon is still expected to see some starts so long as Neuvirth and Brian Elliot are both sidelined. He draws a strong matchup tonight at home against the Canadiens.

Neuvirth will start vs. the Blue Jackets on Friday.

Neuvirth stopped just 32 of 36 shots in the Flyers’ 5-4 shootout loss to the Devils on Tuesday. Neuvirth (2.61 GAA/.911 SV%) has been a serviceable back-up this season, and should see a starter’s workload for the next five to six weeks while Brian Elliot nurses a core muscle injury. He draws a mediocre matchup tonight against the Blue Jackets.

Neuvirth will start Tuesday vs. the Devils.

Neuvirth allowed one goal on 39 shots in the Flyers win in Vegas on Sunday. With Brian Elliott getting hurt in the shootout the night before, the Flyers turned to Neuvirth, who was great in the shootout and even better in Vegas. Neuvirth has turned in performances like this before but is terribly inconsistent. He will look to build off of it tonight vs. New Jersey—he stopped 28 of 29 shots in a 3-1 win vs. the Devils in late-January.

Elliott will start Saturday in Arizona.

Elliott allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Flyers win over Montreal on Thursday. The veteran netminder has won each of his two starts since returning from injury, turning aside 52 of 56 shots (.929 SV%). Dating back to before he got hurt, Elliott has won four in a row and seven of his last eight starts.

Mrazek will start Friday against the Islanders.

Mrazek allowed three goals on 33 shots in the Red Wings loss in Florida last Saturday. It was a controversial late loss, but it was another strong outing for Mrazek. The 25-year-old has won four of his last six starts while posting a 1.30 GAA, .958 SV% and two shutouts. In his first start vs. the Islanders, Mrazek stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 6-3 win in late-December.
