FLYERS LOSE LEAD AGAINST OILERS
Michal Neuvirth stopped 45 of 48 shots in an impressive night for him (and also recorded an assist on White's goal), although the defense was horrible, including being outshot 19-2 in the 1st. The struggles continue for the top line of Raffl, Giroux, and Voracek.
The team returns to action Thursday night as they stay in Alberta to take on Hollydell's own Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames. (RECAP)
Injury wise, Sean Couturier traveled to Edmonton and might play Thursday in Calgary. He participated in Tuesday's morning skate. As he comes back, defenseman Evgeny Medvedev is headed back to Philadelphia to be examined for an upper-body injury. He'll be examined later today.
