Elliott will start Saturday vs. the Kings.

Elliott allowed three goals on 33 shots in the Flyers win in St. Louis on Wednesday. Alex Lyon started Thursday, so they'll come back to Elliott tonight vs. the Kings. He is 2-1-2 with a 2.74 GAA and .900 SV% on home ice this year and draws a nice matchup with Los Angeles in town. The Kings have lost six of their last seven (1-5-1) while averaging 2.14 goals per game.

Lyon will start Thursday vs. the Canadiens.

Tonight will be Lyon's first NHL game in over a year. He has gone 9-11-2 with a 2.56 GAA and .916 SV% in 23 AHL games this season but is 4-3-1 with a 3.05 GAA and .894 SV% in 13 career NHL starts. Even with a decent matchup, Lyon is a risky option as he's set to go toe-to-toe with Carey Price.

The Flyers have sent Joel Farabee to Lehigh Valley (AHL).

Carter Hart will miss 2-to-3 weeks with an abdominal strain and that affected their cap situation. Farabee had to be sent down in order to call-up Alex Lyon to serve as Brian Elliott's backup on Wednesday. Chris Stewart was also placed on waivers, so expect Farabee to be recalled tomorrow once Stewart is claimed or clears waivers (most likely).

Hart will miss 2-to-3 weeks with a right lower abdominal strain.

Hart left Tuesday's practice early and was evaluated after the session. On Wednesday, the Flyers announced that their No.1 netminder will miss at least two weeks with an abdominal strain. With Hart out, Brian Elliott takes over as their starter and Alex Lyon was recalled from Lehigh Valley (AHL) to serve as the No.2.

The Flyers recalled Connor Bunnaman from Lehigh Valley (AHL).

Bunnaman will be the latest Phantom to get a shot to stick on the Flyers fourth line. Recalling Bunnaman will allow Scott Laughton to move back to the wing, where head coach Alain Vigneault thinks he "best helps the team." Bunnaman has four goals and one assist (five points) in 21 AHL games this season.
