MARCH 4:

Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros are out indefinitely with lower-body injuries. Kimmo's Iron Man streak ends at 248 games.
MARCH 16:
  • Kubina's injury has been limited to "upper body." Holmgren has said it is unrelated to the puck-to-the-face injury which required stitches March 4 at Washington. Kubina played the following game vs. Detroit but not since.

MESZAROS OUT 6-8 WEEKS
With a complete day off from practice today for the Flyers, general manager Paul Holmgren gave an injury update regarding several players.

The most significant news to come out of the update was to defenseman Andrej Meszaros.

"Andrej Meszaros will undergo surgery to remove a small disc fragment in his lower back on Wednesday, March 21," announced Holmgren. "Surgery will be performed by Dr Alex Vaccaro at Thomas Jefferson Hospital. Andrej will be out 6-8 weeks."

Meszaros had been sidelined for the last nine games. He recorded 25 points (7G-18A) appearing in 62 out of Flyers first 63 games of the season.

Last season, Meszaros appeared in 81 of 82 games for the Flyers, posting eight goals and 32 points and 42 penalty minutes. He recorded a plus-minus rating of plus-30, which tied for the team lead while averaging 21:07 of time-on-ice per game. He was also awarded the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the team's most outstanding defenseman.

During the off-season, Meszaros underwent surgery to repair cartilage in his right wrist.

In addition to Meszaros, Holmgren announced that defenseman Pavel Kubina and forward Max Talbot are day-to-day with upper-body injuries, while defenseman Andreas Lilja is day-to-day with a throat injury.

Heading into tomorrow's game vs. Florida, the Flyers have had 361 man-games lost this season due to injury or illness, 115 of which have been by defensemen.

Meanwhile, Meszaros practiced for the second time since his March 21st back surgery, and appears closer than originally thought.

    Lilja is practicing with "Black Aces" types, so look for Meszaros to be in lineup for Game 5 ... even though he was nervous about back inj.
