ANAHEIM, Calif. - Defenseman Mark Streit, sidelined the last six weeks with a groin injury that required surgery, said he will not be able to return to the lineup until at least Wednesday. That gives the Flyers a few more days before deciding how to clear salary-cap space so Streit can return. Streit had surgery to repair a pubic plate detachment. He had been targeting the game Sunday in Anaheim for his return, but his three days off the ice for the holiday break have pushed his return back a few days.

In their first three games together, the Jake Voracek-Sean Couturier-Wayne Simmonds line was extremely productive, combining for 10 points and a plus-13 rating. "They seem to have some chemistry, regardless of who's in what spot," coach Dave Hakstol said Monday before the game against visiting St. Louis. "They're finding each other, using each other pretty well, and in the [offensive] zone there's a little more puck possession with three guys that protect it pretty well and they generate some offense that way. " Heading into Monday, Voracek had five points (two goals, three assists)

Claude Giroux reached a milestone of sorts Thursday against visiting Vancouver. The diminutive center played in his 243d regular-season game as the Flyers' captain, surpassing Mike Richards for fifth place on the team's all-time captain list. A quiet person, Giroux leads by the relentless way he plays the game. Giroux has a "ton of qualities. At the top of the list is his intensity and competitiveness," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said before the game. "I could give you a long list, but let's start with those things, and those are two pretty good things to start with as a leader.

DALLAS - When Flyers coach Dave Hakstol says Steve Mason is still his No. 1 goalie, he's playing with semantics. What Hakstol means, it seems, is that he will give Mason every opportunity to regain the form that made him one of the NHL's elite goaltenders last season. But based on Hakstol's decision to start the supposed backup, Michal Neuvirth, in consecutive road games Thursday and Friday, it's clear the rookie coach will go with the hot hand, regardless of the dollars being paid.

DALLAS - For the first time this season, the same Flyers goalie started on consecutive nights. That goalie was Michal Neuvirth, who faced high-scoring Dallas on Friday after recording a 4-2 win in St. Louis the previous night. Neuvirth, the supposed backup, has been sharper than Steve Mason for most of the season, especially in the recent games. "I don't want to compare, I guess, but Neuvy has been sharp," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game Hakstol said it's important to reward a goalie when he is playing well.

ST. LOUIS - The Flyers usually score as many goals in St. Louis as Chris Pronger's bobblehead figurine, which was given to fans who attended Thursday night's game at the Scottrade Center.  Thursday was different. Left winger Matt Read, on a sensational second effort, gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead in the second period en route to their fourth straight road victory, a hard-earned 4-2 win over the Blues. The Flyers scored more goals in the second period (three) than they had in their previous four visits to St. Louis combined (one)

The Flyers overcame a shaky start by goalie Steve Mason and played one of their best offensive games of the season Tuesday. It wasn't enough. Kyle Okposo scored the only goal in the shootout, lifting the Islanders to a 4-3 win at the Wells Fargo Center. Jaroslav Halak made 43 saves for the Isles, and he also denied Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, and Evgeny Medvedev in the shootout. The Flyers outshot the Islanders, 46-26. Giroux had seven of the shots. "We played the way we want to play," said Giroux, who had a goal, an assist, and won 63 percent of his faceoffs.

For the first time this season, a huge crowd of reporters gathered around Radko Gudas' locker Thursday, waiting for the Flyers' rugged defenseman to leave the ice after practice. "You guys waiting for Ogie Ogilthorpe?" cracked Flyers forward Ryan White. Ogilthorpe was a goon in the iconic 1970 movie Slapshot . Gudas, 25, drew a crowd because the NHL suspended him for, well, a goon-like play, a hit to the head of Ottawa's Mika Zibanejad during Tuesday's third period. "It's a fast game," Gudas said.

IT HAD been more than 3 1/2 years since Claude Giroux last dropped his gloves for a fight. That last time, in the 2012 playoffs, was his memorable bout with Sidney Crosby in the Flyers' series win over Pittsburgh. Last Wednesday, with his team trailing in Brooklyn and the game slipping out of reach, Giroux had a short bout with Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy. He said afterward he was trying to change the momentum of the game. It didn't work in the moment - the Flyers ended up losing the game.

NEW YORK - There haven't been many positive story lines coming from the Flyers in the season's first seven-plus weeks, which is why watching shifty defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere's development has been such a refreshing variation. The player they call "Ghost" was recalled from the AHL's Phantoms two weeks ago because Mark Streit went on the long-term injured reserve list, giving the Flyers some cap room to make a few minor-league promotions. If early impressions mean anything, Gostisbehere, 22, is going to live up to the hype.
