A few notes before the Pittsburgh Penguins/Philadelphia Flyers game tonight:

  • Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins defenseman Chris Kelleher was examined today in Pittsburgh for his abdominal injury, and could miss some significant time. (Jonathan Bombulie)
  • Former AHL Penguin Zenon Konopka will miss tonight's game between the Kings and Mighty Ducks due to a high ankle sprain.
  • Mark Recchi, John LeClair, and Sergei Gonchar all missed yesterday's practice without a reason given. That's very telling of their work ethic and commitment to the team. The young guns will sure learn a thing or two from them. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
  • Flyers C Peter Forsberg will play, D Joni Pitkanen is a game time decision, and G Antero Niittymaki will start tonight against the Penguins. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
  • The Philadelphia Flyers traded LW Jon Sim, who was instrumental in the Phantoms 2005 Calder Cup Run, to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a 2007 sixth round pick. (AP)
  • The St. Louis Blues lost Aaron Downey to the Montreal Canadiens through waivers.
  • The 2007 NHL All Star Game will be held in Dallas, TX.
