Despite being in and out of the lineup all season, Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros has done a creditable job.
Saturday was more of the same.
Meszaros played solidly as the Flyers outlasted visiting Calgary, 2-1. He had an assist, blocked three shots, and was plus-2 in 21 minutes, 24 seconds before heading home and packing for Sochi, Russia, where he will compete for Slovakia in the Olympics.
"I think he's improved throughout the year," said coach Craig Berube, who had been critical of Meszaros' defensive play a few weeks ago. ". . . He's been a good pro about being in and out of the lineup, and so has [Erik] Gustafsson. That's just the way it is right now, and it'll work itself out eventually."
