The Philadelphia Flyers will be without goaltender Brian Elliott for at least two weeks while he recovers from a lower-body injury.
Elliott left Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils partway through the third period. The injury occurred when he stretched across his crease to make a save on a Kyle Palmieri wraparound. Palmieri scored on the play and Elliott had to be helped off the ice.
In 14 games this season, Elliott has a 6-7-0 record with a 2.59 goals-against average and .911 save-percentage.
The Flyers are already without goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who hasn’t appeared in a game since Oct. 27. With Elliott now out, the Flyers will be using waiver wire pickup Calvin Pickard and Alex Lyon, who was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley earlier Friday.
