The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Monday announced its All-Star teams, which featured two Philadelphia Flyers prospects. Forward Claude Giroux was named as a first-team All-Star, while defenseman Kevin Marshall was a second-team All-Star.

Giroux, drafted in the first round by the Flyers in 2006, was scoreless in two games with the Flyers earlier this year. In 55 games for the Gatineau Olympiques, he has 38 goals and 68 assists for 106 points, placing him second in the league in scoring.

Marshall, drafted by the club in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, has 11 goals and 24 assists for 35 points and 143 penalty minutes for the Lewiston MAINEiacs.

Head Coach John Stevens gave an update prior to the Flyers-Islanders game on Saturday. Flyers' left wing Vaclav Prospal will not be in the lineup due to the flu.

Steve Downie will be inserted into the lineup and see action for the first time since March 11 vs. Toronto.

"First, you never want to see a guy like Prospal go down. He's been a big reason why we've been successful," said Downie after receiving the call that he would be playing. "It's a chance for me to get back into the lineup and hopefully contribute a little bit."

In other news, it will be Antero Niittymaki between the pipes tonight for the Flyers.

1:33 p.m.

Flyers defenseman Randy Jones will make his return to the lineup tonight when the Flyers take on the Devils at the Prudential Center (7:00 p.m., CW-57), according to head coach John Stevens.

Jones will see action for the first time since Mar. 12 against Toronto, when he left the game midway through the second period due to a hip flexor Injury that caused him to miss the last six games.

"I feel great, I can't wait and I'm excited," said Jones. "This is always a fun time to play, when it's at the end of the season and there's a big playoff push. I'm really excited to get back into the lineup and help this team keep winning."

Jones currently ranks third on the team's defense with 24 assists and 28 points and logs an average of over 19 minutes of ice time per game (19:24).

The Philadelphia Flyers were given a complete day off on Wednesday after their thrilling 2-1 overtime win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. The only players who had to make a trip to the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone today were those that are currently injured.

Gagne said: “It’s been almost a month and a half since the injury and I’m feeling pretty good. Every day is getting better and the symptoms are almost gone. I’m going in the right direction like I want. I would like to be 100 percent right away but I know it’s going to take time. We have a long period of time before I start playing again.”

Jones and Umberger both skated today and are progressing.

“I feel better. The hip flexor has come along really well, and this is my second day getting out there and getting some cardio,” said Jones, who was hurt on March 12 and has missed the last six games. “Tomorrow is my first team practice and I’m looking forward to it.”

Jones added that he expects to be in the lineup when the Flyers continue their road trip in New Jersey on Friday night (7:00 p.m., CW-57).

Umberger suffered an MCL sprain of the left knee on March 16 and has missed the last four games. He hopes to be back for at least a couple of games before the end of the regular season.

“We’re happy with the way it’s going,” he said. “We got on the ice today so that felt good to get on the ice and out of the weight room for a little bit. We’re taking it day-by-day right now.

“It feels like it’s getting stronger and we’re working on some strength. I think it’s coming along well and I think we’re right on schedule.”

2:04 p.m.
The Philadelphia Flyers gathered at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone on Saturday morning for an optional skate. The Flyers host the New York Islanders tomorrow night (7:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet).

There was good news on the injury front for the Flyers’ blue line, as Kimmo Timonen will be fine for the game on Sunday and Randy Jones could be back as early as Tuesday. Timonen left last night's 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers with a lower body injury.

“I’m ready to go tomorrow,” said the All-Star defenseman.

Jones has missed the last four games with a hip flexor, but has started skating and will do so again tomorrow. He is hoping to be back in the lineup for the game at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night (7:30 p.m., Versus).

Also, John Stevens declared that goaltender Martin Biron will be in net on Sunday.

Friday, March 21

12:30 p.m.

The New York Rangers will start Steve Valiquette tonight when they visit the Wachovia Center (7:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet). The 6-6, 210-pound goaltender has shutout the Flyers twice this season, while his counterpart and usual starter, Henrik Lundqvist, has struggled against the Orange and Black in his brief career.

Tom Renney, the Rangers’ coach, explained the move after his team’s morning skate on Friday.

“He’s had good success against Philadelphia and had a good season, so I’m completely comfortable with [starting him],” said Renney. “I think it becomes a mindset for them, over time.”

The Rangers are 5-0-2 in Philadelphia in their last seven games, but Renney stressed to his club that it is still a hard building to play in.

“It’s still not real easy,” he said. “The one thing I think we have to keep in mind is that every point that we get from here on in is absolutely crucial. This is a hard building to play in. They are a team that’s on the hunt, too, and we have to respect that enough to know that we need our ‘A’ game tonight.

“We realize full well that Philadelphia is going to come out hard tonight and do everything they can to win, and we have to be ready for that.”

New York will be without forward Blair Betts, who did not make the trip due to a foot injury. A key penalty-killer for the Rangers, Betts will be sidelined for two-to-three weeks. He has two goals and five assists for seven points in 74 games this season.

Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg will return to the New York lineup after sitting out the previous nine games, said Renney.

The Flyers also skated in the morning at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone. They have two games apiece against their four divisional foes, starting tonight.

“Every time we play them it’s always a battle,” said Mike Richards of the Rangers on Thursday. “We know it’s going to be a tight game and there are huge points on the line for both teams.”

Philadelphia is 11-11-2 against the Atlantic Division, including a 1-3-2 mark against the Rangers, and will have to improve on that winning percentage in its remaining games.

“It has to get better,” said Danny Briere. “It has no choice, and it’s crucial now at this time of the year. We have to find a way to get it done, no matter what.”

One lineup note for the Flyers is that defenseman Randy Jones will remain out tonight with a hip flexor.

Wednesday, March 19

5:30 p.m.
The Flyers signed three prospects today, as Rob Bellamy, Matt Clackson and Michael-Lee Teslak inked deals with the club. All three players will report to the Philadelphia Phantoms.

2:49 p.m.
John Stevens gave the Flyers the day off on Wednesday, but was available for a brief Q and A with a team spokeman at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone this morning. The Flyers have eight games remaining in the regular season, and are currently in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia hosts the New York Rangers on Friday and New York Islanders on Sunday; both games at the Wachovia Center begin at 7:00 p.m. and will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet.

Q: You have eight games remaining, all against Atlantic division rivals. How crucial is this stretch run?

John Stevens: “I think it is always important when you play interdivision, but even more so now.  Four of the five teams are in a playoff spot. We are all hunting for a position to get into the playoffs. It does not seem like any team is out of it. Three of these teams are ahead of us and one is behind us. The games have been tough all year and I don’t see that being any different now. It is just a

matter to bear down and really come up and play some of our best games of the year. If you look around the league it is all set up this way. There are division games for everybody the rest of the way. This is going to make for some great hockey the last couple of weeks of the regular season.”

Q: How you ever seen a divisional race so tight?

JS: “No, and I don’t just think it’s the division, it is the whole league. If you look out West the same thing has kind of happened in the [Northwest] Division. So many teams are fighting for that spot. It is certainly no different than in the Atlantic. If a scenario could have been drawn up, I’m sure that is what they would have hoped for.

"The playoffs are really starting now because there tends to be an atmosphere like the playoffs, even though it is still the regular season.”

Q: In your opinion, how many games do you think this team has to win in the final eight to make the playoffs?

JS: “That’s a good question. I think you are going to have to win four or five to get in, just by the way things are shaping up. The race is so tight right now that if one team happened to get really hot right now that would change things. If you don’t win four or five games you are going to have a tough time getting in.

"If we won that many that would get us up to 92 points, and we would see where it goes from there.”

Tuesday, March 18

4:43 p.m.
NHL.com recently posted a story on Flyers defenseman Jaroslav Modry. Below is an excerpt from the article:

It's amazing how Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Jaroslav Modry can find the focus to compete with such grit and determination each night when he's cognizant of an even greater battle back home in his native Ceske-Budejovice in the Czech Republic.

Modry's 63-year-old father is suffering from inoperable colon cancer.

"It really hurts because he was always a big, strong man and now he's become really fragile, so it's obviously hurting me to see him like that," Modry told NHL.com.

1:30 p.m.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren and Chris Pryor, the team’s director of hockey operations, drove about an hour from Boston last night to see 2007 first round draft choice James van Riemsdyk play for the University of New Hampshire. Van Riemsdyk registered an assist in a 4-1 victory for his team over the University of Massachusetts in a best-of-three quarterfinal playoff series.

UNH is the top seed in the 24th Annual Hockey East Championship Tournament by virtue of a 19-5-3 league record in the regular season, and improved to 24-8-3 overall.

On the Fly caught up with Pryor, who has seen van Riemsdyk play about a half dozen times, prior to the Flyers-Bruins game on Saturday afternoon.

“What you can see from him is that when he has the puck, he’s a talented guy,” said Pryor. “He can see the ice extremely well, he’s a big man, he protects the puck well and he can make plays.

“He has to continually develop his game. When he doesn’t have the puck, he’s got to learn that part of the game, as a lot of kids do. That will come. What he does do with the puck, you can’t teach. Physically, he’s still a kid right now and he’s going to get bigger and stronger.”

In 28 games this season, van Riemsdyk has averaged just under a point per game with 11 goals and 16 assists.

“I think it’s a year in progress,” continued Pryor. “Early in the year he was playing wing, at the World Juniors he was playing wing, and now he’s playing center which is a big transition for the kid.

“He’s still in the learning process, which is going to take awhile. Patience is still the key here, but he’s got a lot to work with to develop.”

Pryor also thinks that being on a top college team like UNH will only benefit van Riemsdyk.

“He’s on a solid team, and they play him and they like him. He gets a lot of ice time, and he’s in a good environment for his development. It’s a good situation for him.”

Friday, March 14

4:27 p.m.

Following Friday morning’s hour-long practice the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone, center Mike Richards declared that he is “90-percent” certain he will be back in the lineup when the Flyers face the Boston Bruins for a key game in the Eastern Conference playoff race (1:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet).

Richards, who skated on a line with Scott Hartnell and Joffrey Lupul, has missed the last nine games with a left hamstring injury. He still leads the team in scoring with 66 points in 62 games (23g, 43a).

"Right now it's feeling good, so I don't see a problem with it," he said. “I’m moving the same way I was before I got injured.”

Despite the two losses this week to Toronto, Saturday’s game will offer the opportunity for the Flyers to jump into seventh place in the Eastern Conference, ahead of Boston. The Bruins lost 3-1 to the last place Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday, and are 1-4-2 in their last seven games. They have scored just eight goals over that span.

Philadelphia, currently the eighth seed, trails the seventh-place Bruins by one point with 11 games to play.

“Boston is in that group with us. We’re trying to get into the playoffs, and there’s a big crowd around those seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th spots,” said John Stevens. “If we’re in seventh, that’s always better than eighth.”

“It’s not just about looking behind us. I believe we can move up the ladder, and that’s still our goal,” added Briere. “We have a great opportunity to leapfrog Boston and get in a good position. It’s a lot better feeling than hoping for teams to lose.”

Martin Biron will start in net for the sixth straight game.

“They are a team that’s fighting, as we are. It’s a big game,” he said. “We’ve been saying that for awhile now, but it’s a team that’s ahead of us and we can try to get ahead of them. It’s enough of us looking back, it’s time to look ahead, and Boston is a team that’s right ahead.

“We look at it as an 11-game season, and it starts tomorrow.”

After having a team meeting and no skate on Thursday, Friday’s session was an intense one. Team captain Jason Smith liked the tempo.

“Having a good hard practice that’s intense, a lot of the times it carries over [to games],” he said.

The intensity was also evident when teammates R.J. Umberger and Jim Dowd got into a minor scuffle, but talked it through later after it was broken up by teammates.

“Guys are not happy about the way things have gone lately. I think it’s a good thing,” said Briere of the shoving match.

Defenseman Randy Jones will be out for the weekend with a hip flexor suffered during Wednesday's game against Toronto. The Flyers are in Pittsburgh on Sunday at noon (NBC).

Thursday, March 13

2:43 p.m.

The Philadelphia Flyers held a team meeting at noon today at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone, but did not practice. The club has two road games this weekend; in Boston on Saturday (1:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet) and Pittsburgh on Sunday (Noon, NBC).

After the meeting, center Mike Richards and coach John Stevens then met with the media. Richards, who is trying to return from a partially torn left hamstring suffered on February 23 against Florida, is unsure if he will be able to get back into the lineup for the weekend.

7:30 p.m.
Prior to tonight's Flyers-Toronto game at the Wachovia Center, Flyers center Jeff Carter had the opportunity to meet his favorite NASCAR driver, Kevin Harvick. The two exchanged sweaters/jackets and discussed their respective sports with one another. Harvick stayed for the game for a meet-and-greet with Flyers fans and signed autographs for the racing fans that were in attendance.

Remarked Harvick later, "I've never really been a hockey fan because I didn't have anyone to root for. Meeting Jeff [Carter] and seeing how big a NASCAR fan he is and how his teammates follow the races, I now have someone to cheer for. 

"The Flyers fans were great and had some really good questions. One even wanted to know how to get a job at Kevin Harvick, Inc."

4:50 p.m.

Flyers Head Coach John Stevens gave the following comments about Joffrey Lupul returning to the lineup tonight against Toronto.

“Initially we thought maybe the first game in Toronto, and they both (Lupul and Mike Richards) practiced before with us before we left. They both looked very good, and if you didn’t know it you would have thought they were playing and coming with us," said Stevens.

“The big key was to see how he felt after a full practice. They stayed behind and skated again and Lupul felt great again. We had him checked out again today, and he’s ready to play.

“It’s a big boost for us. He’s obviously a good player for us and in a back-to-back situation he’ll be a welcome addition to our team.”

1:38 p.m.
Flyers right wing Joffrey Lupul will make his return to the lineup tonight when Philadelphia hosts the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Wachovia Center (7:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet). Lupul has missed the last 12 games with a high right ankle sprain sustained in Montreal on February 16.

In 44 games this season, Lupul has 18 goals and 21 assists for 39 points and 26 penalty minutes.

Tuesday, March 11

1:23 p.m.
The Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs both had morning skates today at the Air Canada Centre. The teams face each other in the first game of a home-and-home series tonight, with the second game tomorrow night at the Wachovia Center at 7:00 p.m.

Jeff Carter, who has six goals and two assists in his last five games, was a focal point this morning of the always large Toronto media contingent. To see media availability from Carter, starting goalie Martin Biron and coach John Stevens, click here.

In a couple of lineup notes tonight, Steve Downie will be back in after being a healthy scratch on Saturday. The Flyers will dress six defensemen rather than seven as they have done in some recent games.

Friday, March 7

2:27 p.m.
Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher and right wing Joffrey Lupul updated their injuries on Friday after practice. Hatcher will more than likely be back in the lineup on Saturday from his sore right knee when Philadelphia hosts the New York Islanders (7:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet), while Lupul will be out longer with a high ankle sprain.

Hatcher has missed the last 12 games while Lupul has been out for the last 11.

Thursday, March 6

4:47 p.m.
The Flyers got a bit of good news on the injury front today, as center Danny Briere will be back in the lineup for tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Briere suffered a slight shoulder strain during Sunday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers, and sat out the 5-2 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.

John Stevens made the announcement to Comcast SportsNet’s John Boruk before the game.

“He felt better this morning, got on the ice, took faceoffs, shot the puck, battled along the wall, and felt good in all those situations,” said the head coach. “The doctor checked him out again, and he feels good enough to play.

“He’s obviously a guy that we could use. We use Danny in a lot of key situations, and he has a big impact on our power play. He’ll be a welcome addition back in our lineup.”

Stevens will put Briere back together with Vaclav Prospal and R.J. Umberger.

“That line, to me, looked like it was starting to click a little bit,” he said. “I thought they were starting to get a feel for each other and a little chemistry together, so we’ll put them back together and look for some good things from that line.”

Wednesday, March 5

4:09 p.m.
The Flyers hope to have two of their injured players back in time for the game on Saturday in defenseman Derian Hatcher and center Danny Briere.

Hatcher continued to skate with the team on Wednesday morning at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone and is eligible to return to game action on March 8 against the New York Islanders. He is currently on injured reserve with a sore right knee.

“It actually felt pretty good. I’ve planned on playing Saturday, so we’ll see,” he said. “I know that’s when they can take me off [injured reserve], but it felt pretty good.”

Hatcher, whose wife gave birth to the couple’s fifth child on Tuesday, said he hasn’t thought about the long term effects of the injury. Instead, he is focusing on getting back for this season’s stretch run and then hopefully the playoffs.

“I’m sure that will be discussed, but I’m trying not to think about that right now,” he said, when asked if he is worried about playing next season. “I know that sounds [cliché], but as far as next season goes, I don’t know. I don’t know if I can go a full year.

“We’ll talk about that this summer, but right now I’m just trying to be honest and get back and keep it strong for the remainder of the season and the playoffs.”

Fortunately, his short term goal of getting back with the Flyers for the rest of this season looks promising.

“[The knee] looks unbelievable right now. If you look at it, it looks better than it has in 10 years.”

Briere, who sat out Tuesday’s game with a slight shoulder strain, could return for Thursday’s game against Tampa Bay but said that it is more likely to see him back in the lineup on Saturday.

He skated with Mike Richards and Joffrey Lupul before the team took to the ice on Wednesday.

“The plan right now is to go in the morning practice, try and skate with the team tomorrow, and see how it is there,” said Briere, who is third on the team in scoring with 57 points. “There’s another full day of getting the chance to heal a little bit more.

“Right now I would say the chances are probably better Saturday, but I’m not closing the door on tomorrow. You never know how I might feel tomorrow and I’m just not closing the door yet.”

Head Coach John Stevens also discussed Hatcher and Briere after practice, as well as the disputed game-winning goal on Tuesday night against Buffalo in which a too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty was never called. To see the video of Stevens’ media availability, click here.

1:46 p.m.
Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren on Monday gave the following update regarding the club's current injury situation:

"In terms of injuries, everything is pretty much the same. Derian [Hatcher] is still looking at Saturday for potentially playing. Derian cannot play prior to March 8 because of the rules with a long term injury, but he is doing fine. His knee is stronger than it has been in a long time and we will see how he handles going on the ice tomorrow and the rest of the week.

"The same could be said for Joffrey [Lupul]. Joffrey is still on track. He is listed as day-to-day but we don't really expect anything out of him until the weekend, as well.

"Mike Richards is coming along nicely. He has progressed a little more each day, but it is still something that we are looking at the initial diagnosis of a minimum of three weeks. That pushes him to somewhere around March 15 or 16, that weekend.

"Everybody else is doing ok."

Also today, left wing Mike Knuble was honored as one of the NHL's three Stars of the Week. According to the official NHL press release:

Knuble recorded eight points (three goals, five assists) as the Flyers posted a record of 3-0-1, improving to eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 33-25-8 for 74 points. On Feb. 25, he tallied two assists in a 4-3 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres and followed that by notching two goals, including the game-winner in a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators, Feb. 28. On Mar. 1, he recorded one goal and two assists in a 4-1 win over the New York Islanders and finished the week by recording one assist in a 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Rangers. Knuble is fourth in Flyers scoring with 48 points (25-23--48).

Said Knuble, "I guess it's a pretty cool thing. There are a lot of players in the NHL and to be even considered for it is a pretty good honor. I am just happy to be involved with my team's success."
