Five things to know about the Flyers today
1. With goalie Michal Neuvirth likely to be out four to six weeks with a lower body injury, Anthony Stolarz will finally be in uniform in goal with the Flyers. This is his seventh time called up to the Flyers and he has yet to make his NHL debut. "We will take it day by day and decide when that start is," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. "We'll have him as a starter at some point of time during this stretch."
2. Stolarz is off to a strong start, with a 6-2 record, 2.39 goals against average and 0.927 save percentage for the Phantoms, who have won six straight. He is anxious to prove himself. "I want to get that next test," he said. "I want to get a shot in the NHL and see what it is all about."
3. If Neuvirth is out the minimum four weeks, that would be 14 games, including two back-to-backs.
4.The Flyers enter Monday in 12th place in the Eastern Conference and also 12th in goal differential (-4) and the two are definitely related.
5. The goal by Brandon Manning in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild has been changed to Jake Voracek. Manning and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare were give the assists.
