The Flyers continue to be stung by injuries to key players. Top-line winger Matt Read, who led the Flyers with seven goals entering Thursday's game, will miss six weeks with a muscle tear in his ribs, the club announced. Read was hurt late in the first period of Wednesday's 6-5 win in Pittsburgh. Rookie Tye McGinn replaced Read in Thursday's lineup against Florida. "You never like to see an injury," McGinn said before the game. "It's unfortunate, but I'm just going to go out and do my best.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - The Flyers recalled left winger Harry Zolnierczyk from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms and put him into the lineup Tuesday night in Winnipeg, hoping he can awaken a sleepy offense. Zolnierczyk isn't exactly a prolific scorer, but he brings some much-needed quickness to a team that, entering Tuesday, had produced a total of nine goals in its six road losses. A year ago, Zolnierczyk collected six points in 37 games with the Flyers. He had nine goals and eight assists in 46 games with the Phantoms this season.

For one night, at least, bruising Flyers winger Tom Sestito imitated Eric Lindros. He hit. He scored. He hit. He scored again. Sestito, known for his fists more than his scoring, netted the third and fourth goals of his career - and his first two as a Flyer - to spark a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday at the sold-out Wells Fargo Center. "It's great to contribute like that and not just by fighting all the time," Sestito said. "I've got one [move] and hopefully no goalies catch on. " Zac Rinaldo, another feisty Flyers winger, also helped set the tone by decisively winning a first-period fight against winger B.J. Crombeen, who went to the locker room for repairs and did not return for precautionary reasons.

Is it too early for the Flyers to start targeting players who would upgrade their sad-sack offense? In a normal 82-game season, probably. In a lockout-shortened 48-game season, no. The Flyers have played only nine games, but that accounts for almost 20 percent of the abbreviated season. Heading into Saturday night's game against Carolina, the Flyers had two goals or fewer in seven of their first eight games. They had a total of seven in their six losses. Several unrestricted free agents this summer will draw the Flyers' attention, but those same players may be available in trades before then.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers center Danny Briere, who missed the first four games because of a hairline fracture of his left wrist, made his first appearance of the year Saturday night. Before the game, Briere said he had no problems shooting the puck, but faceoffs still gave him difficulties. He began the night at left wing. Earlier in the day, general manager Paul Holmgren said Briere was "probably a no-go" for Saturday, but Briere apparently talked his way into the lineup. Briere played on a line with center Sean Couturier and right winger Jake Voracek.

Flyers winger Scott Hartnell will miss four to eight weeks with a broken bone in his left foot, general manager Paul Holmgren announced in a grim tone before Thursday's game against the New York Rangers. About an hour later, he was more upbeat, announcing that the Flyers were bringing back 40-year-old winger Mike Knuble, an unrestricted free agent, to fill Hartnell's roster spot. Hartnell, who led the Flyers with a career-high 37 goals last season, suffered the injury when inadvertently hit by a shot taken by teammate Kimmo Timonen in New Jersey on Tuesday.

At 25, Matt Read was considered an "old" rookie when he led all first-year NHL players with 24 goals last season. Now the unflappable Flyers winger is hoping his experience and relatively old age for a second-year player will help him avoid the proverbial sophomore jinx. "Hopefully being more mature and older than most [in this position], I can withstand the pressure and try to be a top player in this league," Read, now 26, said after taking part in the Flyers' informal practice Thursday at their Voorhees training facility.

Months after asking the Columbus Blue Jackets to trade him, forward Rick Nash had his wish granted and is headed to the New York Rangers. Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson announced Monday the club had dealt the big right winger, the team's captain and career leader in most offensive categories, along with a 2013 third-round draft pick and a minor-league defenseman. In return, the Rangers sent centers Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, defenseman Tim Erixon, and a first-round pick next year.

After sending Twitter atwitter late Monday afternoon , free-agent left winger Zach Parise delayed his decision on a team, saying he needed more time to confer with his fiancée and family on where he would take his talents. The Flyers are among the teams that have made offers to Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, the jewels of this year's free-agent market. Their decisions may be announced Tuesday. Speaking to reporters outside his agent's office in Toronto, Parise said he would return to his Minnesota home and discuss matters with his family.
