OMG!! PHANTOMS WIN! PHANTOMS WIN! PHANTOMS WIN! (yea I know only their 4th game they won lol)
And best thing is, they beat Laliberte and Maroon
Gustafsson led the team with 1 goal, 4 assists and a +1, in a 5-2 win.
good night, such a shame he offers little 5 on 5 and in the defensive zone. hopefully he can improve as it is only his 1st year of pro hockey. I see the finn was scratched again as was bourdon. They need to play, to get scratched is not good on that team
Personally I thought Lehtivouri looked better lately (as in defensively), so I was caught off guard when he was scratched again
unless there are behind the scenes type stuff going on, they need to play. The ahl is for development. Maybe they have fallen on the depth chart, i know what a shock, and JP is ahead of them. That would say a ot.
And while Walker now counts against the Flyers' 23-
man roster, goaltender Michael Leighton (back
surgery) does not, at least not until he returns from
his conditioning assignment with the Phantoms, at
which time he will be taken off the club's long-term
Leighton backstopped the Phantoms to a 5-2 win
over Syracuse Friday night, which snapped a 10-
game losing streak, and was scheduled to start
Saturday night's home game against Portland.
Under the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement,
teams can carry no more than 23 players on their
active rosters and if Leighton is deemed medically
cleared to play, the Flyers must remove a player
from their roster to make room for him.
"In order to activate Michael something has to
happen," Holmgren told reporters in Boston on
Saturday. "Who the heck knows? Lots of thing can
happen between now and then."
Under the CBA a team can send each player to the
minors for a conditioning assignment twice a
season, if the player agrees. The Flyers are likely to
ask seventh defenseman Oskars Bartulis, who has
not played since Nov. 1, a span of 19 games,to
return to the Phantoms for his second conditioning
stint of the season. Bartulis,who has played just
three games for the Flyers this season, was sent to
the Phantoms for a conditioning assignment from
Oct. 23 through Oct. 31.
