About the Flyers

  • Philly was hammered 5-2 in Toronto Monday night, dropping their road record to just 1-6 and overall mark to 5-7-1.
  • The Flyers recalled Brian Boucher from Adirondack on Sunday to back up Ilya Bryzgalov. Michael Leighton suffered an upper-body injury which will keep him out at least a week. Bryzgalov started against the Leafs but was pulled after giving up four goals on just 14 shots. He did not speak with the media afterward.
  • A fact that must make Kevin Cheveldayoff & Co. ill: In 2007 the Atlanta Thrashers traded Braydon Coburn, whom they drafted eighth overall in ’03, to Philly for Alexei Zhitnik. Coburn, still only 27, has been a mainstay with the Flyers since. Zhitnik played just 83 games over two seasons with Atlanta before returning to Russia.
  • The Jets were 3-0-1 vs. the Flyers last season and the games included some of the craziest of the season: the 9-8 win in Philly on Oct. 27, a 2-1 shootout victory in Philly on Jan. 31 and a 5-4 OT loss at home in which Wayne Simmonds tied the game with 10 seconds left and Jaromir Jagr won it in OT with 44 seconds remaining.
