Though Elliott hadn’t been having an outstanding season, he was once again the de facto starter and integral to the Flyers' playoff plans. With him gone for nearly the entire remainder of the season, Philadelphia may have to look outside the organization for some help. In Elliotte Friedman’s latest 31 Thoughts column, he mentioned some connection between the Flyers and Buffalo Sabres, though there is no indication whether that was about goaltending.

Eagles player says team ran fake walkthrough to throw off Patriots

  Eagles player says team ran fake walkthrough to throw off Patriots One Philadelphia Eagles player says the team ran a fake walkthrough in Minneapolis to throw off the New England Patriots in case they tried any of their alleged spying shenanigans. Eagles long-snapper Rick Lovato appeared on WDAE in Tampa on Wednesday and talked about the walkthrough.“I believe our whole walk-through was just a complete fake walk-through,” Lovato told “The Ron and JP Show“. “We did it at the stadium. There were certain people walking around. . . . I believe I overheard someone say a lot of the plays we were running weren’t even in the playbook for the Super Bowl.

Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott will be out five to six weeks after undergoing core muscle surgery on Tuesday. Elliott was injured during Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes while making a save in the shootout.

Things got only tougher Tuesday as goalie Brian Elliott underwent core muscle surgery and is expected out five to six weeks . For the time being, the Flyers will turn to Michal Neuvirth and Alex Lyon.

There could be a fit with Buffalo if the Sabres are willing to trade one of their pending free agent goaltenders, as both Chad Johnson (UFA) and Robin Lehner (RFA) are on expiring contracts. Detroit is another place that has a surplus of goaltending, and as Frank Seravalli of TSN points out, the Red Wings could still be looking for a landing spot for Petr Mrazek.

If the Flyers end up staying within the organization, Michal Neuvirth will have to handle the lion’s share of the starts down the stretch. Alex Lyon has looked shaky in his first few appearances and has less than two years of professional experience. Beyond that there is Dustin Tokarski, who has struggled this season at the AHL level. Neuvirth does have 12 playoff starts in which he’s registered a .933 save percentage, but the majority of those came some time ago with the Washington Capitals. It would be risky to put the load squarely on his shoulders without much NHL experience to help.
