    Brian Elliott out 5-6 weeks with injury

    Flyers goaltender to miss over a month after undergoing core muscle surgery

    by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @NHLFlyers / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com
    Prior to tonight's game, Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced to the media an update on the condition of goaltender Brian Elliott:
    "Brian Elliott had successful core muscle surgery this morning," said Hextall. "He's expected to be out 5-6 weeks."
    Elliott suffered the injury in Saturday's Flyers-Coyotes game at Arizona. He appeared in all 65 minutes through regulation and overtime where he made 24 saves. He then faced two skaters in the shootout before being forced out of the game with the injury. Back up Michal Neuvirth came in relief of Elliott in the shootout and secured the win.

    Elliott has received a majority of the starts this season, his first with the Flyers, since signing with the club during free agency this past summer. He owns 21 of the Flyers 28 wins, posting a 21-11-7 record to go along with a 2.72 goals-against average of .908 save percentage through 41 games.
    Since Dec. 4, the date that the Flyers snapped their 10-game winless skid, Elliott has been among the best in the NHL with a 15-5-1 record, 2.51 GAA and .912 save percentage. His 15 victories rank third among all NHL goaltenders in that span, and helped lead the Flyers to a 20-8-2 record, which is the best in the Metropolitan Division and third best in the entire league.
    This is the second time this season Elliott has missed time due to an injury. Elliott was placed on injured reserve and missed four games from Jan. 25-Feb. 3.
    As a result of the injury, the team recalled goaltender Alex Lyon from their AHL affiliate in Lehigh Valley to serve as back-up for Neuvirth in Sunday's 4-1 win at Las Vegas over the Western Conference leading Golden Knights.
    The Flyers resume action tonight when they return home to face the New Jersey Devils in a key Metropolitan Division matchup (7pm, NBCSP & 97.5 The Fanatic).

    Core muscle injury. Dudes done for the year. If studs like Giroux and Gostisbehere took a full year to return to form, can’t imagine what a 30+ year old average goalie would take. Welcome to Philly, Robin Lehner.

    The price for any goalie Hextall tries to trade for now just went up.

    So he was out for a muscle injury and then Neuvirth and Lyons have bad games. They hurry him back and he gets hurt more serious. I think the Flyers invented this scenario.

    This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone after the way he went down on Saturday. The Flyers need to get a starter capable goalie & let Neuvirth continue in his backup role. Neuvirth hasn't shown the ability to stay healthy under a heavy workload. I'm guessing we see a deal within 2 weeks, if not sooner. Of course, this assumes that Hextall is serious about this season.
