Here is what Tim P. wrote:

Stevens expects Briere (right quad pull) and James van Riemsdyk (fractured left pinky) to play. … Ryan Parent (right groin pull) is out; Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (concussion) remains doubtful which is why Phantoms call-up Oskars Bartulius remained here. … Parent says he expects to play Saturday night against Buffalo.

If the news on Tuesday – that almost all of the injured Flyers had returned to the ice for practice – was positive, then Wednesday must be considered mixed.

No, there weren’t any new injuries to report. It just seems that both Ryan Parent (groin) and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (concussion) are not 100-percent ready to return to the lineup in time for Thursday’s game against the Ottawa Senators.

The good news, though, is that it looks like Danny Briere (quad) and James van Riemsdyk (broken & stitched pinkie) will be able to play on Thursday.

“They’re all back on the ice, they’re all participants at practice,” Flyers coach John Stevens said. “We hope to get them all back this weekend at some point.”

Briere hasn’t played since he injured his quad (right above the knee) on Oct. 27 in Washington. The often complained about schedule gap has allowed Briere to miss just 4 games.
