The Philadelphia Daily News' Frank Seravalli reports Downie is day-to-day with another upper-body injury. The Flyers forward was scratched in six of the team's final eight games due to various injuries and solid line production from the players currently in the lineup. Downie's injury does not bode well for him playing Thursday in New York.
Downie, who turned 27 two weeks ago, was acquired by the Flyers from the Colorado Avalanche on October 31st in exchange for Max Talbot. In 51 games this season for Philadelphia, Downie has just three goals and 14 assists. He is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
