The latest, from Wayne Fish:
Flyers goaltender Ray Emery, who missed 17 games following abdominal surgery on Dec. 9, was scratched from the lineup for Saturday night's game at Minnesota due to what the team is calling soreness in his left hip.
Early Saturday night, general manager Paul Holmgren said the current hip problem is not related to the abdominal surgery.
"This is kind of an ongoing thing here that he has been struggling with but he has some hip issues on the left side," Holmgren said. "Fortunately for us he hasn't missed any time until now. Just as a precaution we are going to hold him out tonight.
"This is not at all related to his abdominal surgery."
Holmgren said Emery will be checked by team doctors on Monday.
"We will see how he is, whether he is able to play," Holmgren said. "We are certainly going to get him checked out when we get back just to make sure we know what we are dealing with."
There is the possibility that Emery will receive an injection to ease the discomfort.
"Our past experience with goaltenders and players with hip issues, there is a synvisc injection they can put in there, which acts as a lubricant," Holmgren said. "A number of our guys have done this.
"I had it done in my knee and it is more of a lubricant. It goes in and 'oils' your joint."
"Street Sense is 19 out of 20. Street Sense has roared from 19th position to first in the Derby...And here is Street Sense, a stretch running sensation!," Tom Durkin.
