Flyers Inside Out

VOORHEES, N.J. – The injury news has gotten worse for the Flyers.

Andrej Meszaros re-injured his left shoulder in the closing minutes of yesterday’s 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers when he collided with a Rangers player on a clearing attempt in his own zone.

According to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, Meszaros will be out of the lineup indefinitely.

Meszaros already missed more than a month this season with a similar injury, also suffered against the Rangers in the fourth game of the season.

It has been a trying calendar year for the Flyers defenseman who used to own an iron man streak of games played only to suffer a back injury that required surgery last March, a ruptured Achilles tendon that required surgery in July and a pair of shoulder injuries this season.

The Flyers recalled Erik Gustafsson to replace Meszaros in the lineup and he will be in the lineup tomorrow against the Islanders if Nick Grosmann, who is still day-to-day with an upper body injury, can’t play (he did not practice Wednesday).

With the recall of Gustafsson, Meszaros has been placed on injured reserve.

Danny Briere remains out of action indefinitely with a concussion.
