Alex Lyon has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Michal Neuvirth is with his wife for the birth of their child, so that's why Philadelphia needed another goaltender. Lyon has a 3.48 GAA and .907 save percentage in seven AHL contests.

Dale Weise was blunt after the Flyers' latest setback.

The Flyers got run over by the Jets on Sunday, losing 7-1. Philadelphia seemed to be on course to rebound Wednesday night against Calgary, but the Flyers blew 4-2 and 5-3 leads to lose 6-5 in overtime. "We’ve got to find a way to reset," Weise said. "We get embarrassed in Winnipeg. We’re playing OK there and we shoot ourselves in the foot. It’s embarrassing." The Flyers are now 12-13-4 this season. The good news is that the Metropolitan Division hasn't been too great so far, so the Flyers are only four points out of a playoff spot.

Claude Giroux registered two assists in a 6-5 overtime loss to Calgary Wednesday night.

Giroux has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. That brings him up to 11 goals and 38 contests in 2018-19.
Dec 13 - 4:57 AM

Anthony Stolarz allowed six goals on 41 shots in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Calgary Flames.

The Flyers inexplicably let this one slip away late, as they held a 5-3 lead with 1:08 remaining in the game. After the Flames forced overtime, they got the game-winner from Johnny Gaudreau just 35 seconds into the frame. Stolarz now has a 2-1-2 record with a 3.80 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage this season. It's hard to envision head coach Dave Hakstol surviving much longer if the Flyers don't turn things around in a hurry.

Sean Couturier picked up two goals and one assist in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Calgary Flames.

Couturier registered the primary assist on James van Riemsdyk's power-play goal in the second period (2-2). He then added the go-ahead goal (3-2) less than a minute later, and his shorthanded marker gave the Flyers a 5-3 lead in the third frame. Philly held on to that two-goal late into the third period, but Calgary managed to tie the game thanks to two quick goals inside the final two minutes of regulation. Johnny Gaudreau then won the game in overtime for Calgary. Couturier has 12 goals and 23 points in 27 games this season.
Dec 12 - 11:45 PM

Jori Lehtera will sit out Wednesday night when the Flyers visit the Calgary Flames.

Lehtera has scored once this season. He had played in the previous four games, breaking the nine minute mark only once. He had dressed in only one of the previous six games before that. Jordan Weal will miss his fourth game of the last five. Christian Folin will be the other scratch.

Sean Couturier (lower body) will be back in the lineup Wednesday night.

Couturier will skate between Michael Raffl and Jakub Voracek after missing two games due to a lower-body injury.
Dec 12 - 6:53 PM

Anthony Stolarz will get the nod on Wednesday night versus Calgary.

Stolarz has a 2-1-1 record this season with a 3.39 goals-against average and .898 save percentage in six appearances.
Dec 12 - 2:42 PM

Nolan Patrick was knocked off the second line for Tuesday's practice.

Patrick instead skated on a line with Scott Laughton and Wayne Simmonds. Patrick has just an assist in his last 11 games.
Dec 12 - 5:29 AM

Sean Couturier (lower body) is expected to return on Wednesday.

Couturier missed the previous two games. As previously reported, he skated on the second line with Jakub Voracek and Michael Raffl during Tuesday's practice. He's typically been on the first line with Claude Giroux, but the Flyers are going to attempt to balance out their top two units.

Sean Couturier (lower body) practiced on Tuesday.

Couturier was on the second line with Jakub Voracek and Michael Raffl during the session. He has missed the last two games due to a lower-body injury.
Dec 11 - 9:22 PM

Nolan Patrick recorded an assist in a 7-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.

Patrick ended his 10-game point drought. He has five goals and 10 points in 25 contests this season. Over his 98 NHL games thus far, he's had some really good patches, but he hasn't been able to stay at that level yet. Still, he's just 20-years-old and has plenty of potential.
Dec 10 - 9:42 AM

Michal Neuvirth was pulled in Sunday's loss to Winnipeg after he surrendered three goals on 10 shots.

Anthony Stolarz faced 25 shots and permitted four goals in relief during his 32:29 of playing time. Neuvirth did not look sharp in his first game action since Oct. 27, which isn't surprising.
Dec 9 - 6:03 PM

Jakub Voracek scored the lone goal for Philadelphia in a 7-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.

Voracek's eighth goal of the season at the 17:34 mark of the first period was assisted by Travis Sanheim and Nolan Patrick. He finished the match with four shots and a minus-2 rating.
